Definition - What does Japanese Rope Bondage mean?

Japanese rope bondage is a style of bondage using ropes and intricate knots. It is called Japanese rope bondage because it has deep roots in Japanese history. It is often featured in Japanese fetish pornography and hentai. Natural hemp and jute are the most common types of rope used during Japanese rope bondage.

Besides being very effective, true Japanese rope bondage should also be very beautiful. It often involves using several layers of rope and very intricate knots. It's not uncommon for it to take a devoted person several hours to complete one session from start to finish.

Kinkly explains Japanese Rope Bondage

Although Japanese rope bondage is seen as a kinky art form today, it was once a necessity. Centuries ago, metal was not as abundantly available in Japan as it was in Europe. So, instead of using metal to make shackles, the Japanese used natural ropes to bind and restrain their prisoners instead. When tying up prisoners, Samurai warriors not only wanted them to be restrained, but they also wanted them to be pleasing to the eye.
