We don't engage in bondage, but when I saw this interesting deck of cards I thought it might come in handy some day. Each card contains step-by-step instructions--with illustrations--for tying common (and not so common) knots.

Some of the knots have such intriguing names that, although my Girl Guide days are long gone, and I'll never be a good sailor, I am tempted to try them.

Then there are other knots obviously designed with kinky folk in mind.

Why not give it to Ron for Christmas and ask him to try out the common whipping and the diagonal knots :) Could be fun.

Just to freshen up on the old Girl Guide skills, you should try these. You never know when they might come in handy. As survivalist methods, of course.

Ronnie - Yes, we could make a lanyard or some wall decorations.

Pink - You never know when you might have to tie a reef knot in the woods!



I use some specialist knots almost every day at work, it's surprising how useful a little rope knowledge can be. It would be nice to try some out at play time though. Is there a brat knot, that one can use on a Top, in the deck Hermione?

We're kinda-sorta-mildly into bondage, though never did anything with ropes. However, we have seen some pretty elaborate rope play. Has to take some real skill to do that... and who knows, maybe that starts by getting a deck of cards!

Prefectdt - A brat knot? I'll check.

Todd and Suzy - Maybe you could come up with another game based on cards. "Crazy Spanks"?
