Elbow Harness

All you need to know about elbow harness

For kinky people into bondage

Bondage aficionados often love to learn new ties, and the elbow harness is a great addition to anyone's bondage arsenal. It's a reasonably simple and straightforward tie, and there are plenty of guides available online that will walk you through it step by step. The elbow harness can be combined with other ties for full-body immobilisation, making it a fantastic choice for those who like their bondage to be as comprehensive as possible. Just make sure you practice loosely a few times before relying on it, and keep your rope shears handy in case you need to make a quick release.

What is an elbow harness?

This is a type of tie used in rigging. Rope is passed around a person who is touching their wrists together behind their back. It creates a harness that runs around the person’s elbows holding their top half immobile.

How do you tie an elbow harness safely?

Whenever you play with rope be sure to have some safety shears close by. If the tied person (bunny) is in any discomfort at all, or passes out, the rope should be cut away immediately. You need to be sure not to run rope over any pressure points/nerves and keep checking the rope bunny’s circulation all through the tie.

How easy is an elbow harness to tie?

It is a fairly simple and intuitive tie and there are several tutorial videos online to practise from. The best way to learn a new tie though is to attend a rope workshop where someone can show you step by step how to do it.

What rope is best for an elbow harness?

This is a personal preference, but you will want to use something that isn’t too thick or too thin. Rope between 6mm-12mm is regularly quoted as being the best for rigging. Natural fibres such as jute, hemp and cotton are favourites but if your sub loves pain, try a bit of itchy coconut.

Looking for a Dom to train me as you see fit.Let me kneel before you head down by your feet let me lick 👅 suck you’re feet and toes.emphasized text

I am a male sub very shy I have been trained to keep my head down and to only speak when spoken to and never answer back. I am happy to be locked 🔒 in your collar to show your ownership of me. I last Mistress trained me to except maintenance punishments when she felt I need it. I have had a weeks training in Germany, where I had three dom’s to serve one male and two female. I was not spoken too as I could not speak Germany. I was stripped and put in to a neck collar and pad locked in. A leather body harness was then fastened tightly round my body. I was now there slave. My first morning was cleaning the house from top to bottom. They pointed to tell me to clean again it was not good enough. Food for me was oatmeal and nothing else. In the evening I was told to stand still and serve drinks when told which was different when I don’t understand. I think they started calling me names and humiliating me. Then I was punished with a hard long spanking on my bare bum with belt,wipe and crop leaving me in a lot of discomfort pain ,sore and bum feeling like it was on fire all very humiliating in front of people I did not know.
I know what to expect this time I am still shy but more obedient will not answer back. I will take my duties very seriously and not question your commands.
I am happy to dress as you say. Eat what I am given and not question punishment and humiliation.
Hope to start training with a new Dom soon.

Bondage is one of the most famous and best known aspects of S&M and BDSM play, and not without reason. Being tied up is a glorious sensation for the right person, and the control inherent in being the person doing the tying can give a dominant partner a heady rush. Ball gags are also commonly used. Sometimes bondage is there primarily to enhance a roleplay scenario; sometimes it's almost an art form, especially when it comes to rope bondage. Other times it's just to make clear the dynamic and have some fun with each other. Whatever your reasons for indulging, make sure you're doing so safely. Learn some knots that don't tighten under pressure and always keep a pair of shears to hand in case you need to release your partner in a hurry.
Bondage comes in many forms, and shackling is one of the most iconic. Metal shackles are attached to the walls of many dungeons, playrooms and party spaces--and they can take a bit of a pounding, making them a great choice for keeping stronger and more feisty submissives under control! They can be used on the wrists or the ankles, and in some cases are suitable for extended periods of confinement--assuming, of course, you're communicating with the person you've got locked up all the time, and you know how they're doing. If you get a chance to try shackling, it can be well worth it for the aesthetic potential alone.
For bondage in a hurry, you can't go wrong with a bit of bondage tape. It comes in rolls a little like duct tape, and it's made of a flexible plastic that adheres only to itself. This means it's perfect for quick and dirty binding, tying and gagging! Bondage tape comes in all manner of colours and thicknesses, and is a fantastic addition to any BDSM travel kit. Just make sure you pack some scissors along with it - safety is paramount, and it's vital that you're able to get the tape off in a hurry if needs be. Bondage tape is available from almost all kink stores and sex shops, and it's also an affordable way to try bondage out for yourself for the first time.
