Safety 101: Bondage pt. 2: Simple Rope and Cuff Restraints

This is the second post regarding safety with simple rope and cuff restraints. This post is going to cover the back (posterior) of the body and the do’s and don’ts relating to bondage and the back of the body.

The posterior of the body is a lot easier when it comes to bondage, not so much when it comes to whipping and caning, however that is for another post. When looking at the diagram of the back, you can see many nerves running from the spine outwards, these are very delicate and major nerves that you should be aware of. When tying or restraining someone in this area, it’s good to keep in mind the area near the lower portion of the spinal nerves, as these are right by what are called the ‘floating ribs’. They’re basically a couple of ribs that are easily susceptible to damage, so try not to crush them when tying someone up, though to be honest, I think you’d be pretty hard done to do that, it’s just good to be aware of it. As well as that, the kidneys are located above the pelvic bone and below the floating ribs (more or less). This is an important area to avoid. When doing bondage however, it’s not something you’re going to be dealing with a lot. When it comes to bondage of the thighs, you can see there are some delicate nerves running along the inner thighs, it’s therefore good to keep to the rule of thumb of being able to put 1-2 fingers between the rope or cuff and their skin. The other nerves that you can see are generally a lot deeper. Though when it comes to heavier bondage, it is important to keep to that rule so that no nerves can come to any damage. One nerve that I hadn't mentioned in my previous post is the Radial nerve. It runs on the back and outside of the arm near the tricep and front of the forearm to the thumb and a couple of the fingers. The other two nerves I spoke about in the previous post were the Median and Ulnar nerves, they run around the inside of the arm. It's important to note that the Radial nerve is susceptible to damage as well, especially if you tie the upper arm or near the elbow joint (I avoid going too close to joints, but that's for another post!). Right! Well that was a relatively short yet sweet post. Hope you enjoyed reading, but most importantly, have fun out there 😘 ~ Empress Akari
