There are thousands of great books about knots. There also are many great books about bondage. However, there are few books that clearly illustrate the step-by-step process of turning great knots into great bondage. It's one thing to know how to tie an Eagle Scout's worth of sheep shanks, bowlines and clove hitches. It's another thing to know how to tie up your partner.
Putting knots to work on the human form is an entirely different animal compared to seamanship, mountaineering or crocheting — especially if you want your bondage to be safe, sensual, attractive and effective. After all: you're not tying rope — you're tying people.
When Two Knotty Boys, Dan and JD, began teaching rope bondage together in 1999, they discovered that most people learn best when they're shown — close up, step by step, and repeatedly — how to tie basic knots and combine them into bondage techniques. It is this learning process that they duplicate in this book. With the help of photographer Ken Marcus, Two Knotty Boys use photos and captions to show-not tell the soup-to-nuts techniques for turning rope into rope bondage. Two Knotty Boys Showing You The Ropes fills the gap between books about knots and books about bondage.
Unlike videos or DVDs that must be played and memorized, Two Knotty Boys Show You The Ropes can be a bedside companion to actual bondage. With easy-to-understand captions and clear step-by-step photos, readers can learn at their own pace, review whole techniques at a single glance or even lay it flat on the table (beside their blindfolded partner) and follow along as they tie.
