#Shibari Saturday: Simple Harness

Over Thanksgiving when I was with little flower I had brought some rope with me to try out a new harness tie I had found.

It was a very simple tie yet a lot of fun and as I played around with it I found that I could tweak it a bit.
Part of the harness goes between her legs and then up the back and across her hips. When I ended the tie I had enough rope to tie it off on the part that came up from between her legs.
What this managed to do was to pull the rope tight against her soft bits.

As I spanked her I could grab the rope and give it a tug which not only tightened against her lips but her clit as well.

While being a simple tie I found it to be quite enjoyable both doing the tie and removing it later as it afforded excellent opportunity for caressing.

I used a 30 foot section of rope to tie the harness, here is the tutorial for doing the tie:

ropestep1

First, find the center point of the rope. The center of the rope drapes around the back of the person’s neck. Bring the ends of the rope around one another three times; these three twists will become the three diamonds you see in the front of the finished rope harness.

Bring the two ends of the rope between the person’s legs…

ropestep2

…then up and apart on the other side. From this point, each end of the rope will wrap around the person’s hips and then through the lowest twist in front, which sounds complicated but is actually quite easy:

ropestep3

See? Nothing to it. Don’t pull the rope tight; as you continue this process, bringing the ends of the rope around to the front, passing them through the twists, and then bringing them back again, the rope will need to slide to let the diamonds open up in the front. It’s okay if the rope is loose at this point; it will become tighter as you work your way up.

You’ll do the same thing again–pass the ends of the rope around the person’s back, then around the front and through the twist, like so:

ropestep4

As you might imagine, you’ll do this same thing one more time. Bring the ends of the rope around the person’s body and behind the person, then back around the front and through the topmost twist. After you do this, you can bring the ends of the rope over the top of the person’s shoulders, or back around beneath the persons arms like I show here.

So the rope goes around to the front of the person’s body, through the topmost twist, then back around behind the person again; from there, you bring the ends up underneath the rope where it passes around the person’s neck, and down beneath the rope wrapping around the person’s back. (It’s easier than it sounds, I promise.)

If you’re using a 25′ length of rope, you will probably find that there’s not enough rope left at this point to run down the persons back. No problem; at this point, you just wrap or tie off the ends of the rope wherever you like–around the part where it loops around the back of the person’s neck, or around the part where it crosses behind the person’s back, or whatever.

There are all kinds of things you can do any time you find yourself with extra rope. One of the simplest things you can do is use the extra rope to make a wrap:

ropewrap

It’s exactly as simple as it looks. The free end of the rope wraps around and around another part of the rope; if you reach the end of the rope, just tuck it beneath the wrap. This technique is quite handy for making “handles” that are quite convenient for grabbing, if you like.

Thanks to Tacit for the photo’s and tutorial

    The front looks a lot like the tortoise shell harness my Sir does, although this one has much less knots and more just twisting of the rope, so it will be much quicker to make. Love it! Going to bookmark this one 🙂

      Now that you mention it, it does look a bit like a tortoise shell.
      This tie is very quick which is one thing I do like about it as sometimes there just isn’t time to do a long involved tie.
