I'm looking to shoot some bondage with a friend soon and was wondering if people had good examples of bondage that's used to enhance a person's flexibility and posing ability. The real super bendy ones are what I'm interested in!

This is opposed to bondage that is more fetishy in nature. I'm not really looking for the ball and gag or otherwise trapped woman feel (for lack of better description). Nothing wrong with that, of course, just not what I'm looking for in examples at this time smile

I hope this doesn't come off offensive in any way >__< I'm not that familiar with the terms in bondage culture and mean no harm in my wording!


Edit: I believe it's called "rope suspension" ? ... things like that or shibari and whatnot.

You're leaving me a bit confused, because the "trapped" component is rather inherent to bondage. You're not going anywhere fast. Now, there's a difference between being bound and being gagged, but...

Are you going more for the mood of the picture? As in you want to be tied up but not have it look/feel like you've been "captured" or "kidnapped," or something along those lines? You want it to look voluntary?

Moderator Note!
Please make sure your responses to the OP conform to MM's image rules.
If the image you cite is M/18+ (and all bondage on MM is considered M/18+) then you may only post links to the image(s)

Yes, exactly. I'm not looking for bondage at all in the fetish way in this particular thread. I want it to be the use of ropes to help emphasize flexibility/posing. Whether there will be actual bondage elements will be decided later, but that will require less research for me and more mood ability.

Like, an example...

This isn't exactly what I had in mind since Shiva's not bound in any way, but I mean the use of ropes and knots and ties on the model to help make poses like this possible.

Sorry again about the terminology. I suppose "rope play" may be more appropriate?

You might try a Google Image search for "Rope Suspension." That sounds like that's what you're after.

ETA: I'd help more but my experience is much more with the "trapped woman" approach.

... well, sure, but I was curious to see what the MM community had of it since there's often times some fantastic work here :S

The bendier you want to shoot, the better rigger you need. It is easy to pull/stretch/dislocate/hurt when you are close to the limit of your flexibility; especially if you have never done it and don't know what to expect and do not see your limits coming.

All of that is taken care of. I'm really just looking for good example images.

I can enjoy bondage as much as the next person, but for photoshoots I like the ropes acting like an outfit more than the "bounded/tied" arrangements.  Unfortunately I don't really look around for those on MM, but I think the rope corsets are pretty nifty.

I imagine there are a bunch of corset arrangements.  I don't really see these on MM, but google has a few examples. The knots for corsets can also be applied to make bracelets and leg wraps.

Here, this is a shot I did of a model who's very into rope bondage. I didn't get to shoot her that way yet but she does like to pose in awkward body positions / over structures that a fall would not go well (you can see a few others of them in my portfolio), she's credited so you can easily zip through to her profile.

Im a little different... while I know every twist in a classic takate-kote and how to add Mt. Fuji, I generally don't shoot my art that way.  There is a completely different rule book when doing photography vs classic reasons.

I'm interested in certain aesthetic possibilities where the ropes are used as much for posing supports and definition as they are for restraint.

seems i'm a bit late, but if you ever do another shoot like that, try doing a google image search for "cirque du soleil aerial contortion".
