Bondage Tutorial: Double Column Tie

Next up in our bondage tutorial series is the double column tie. The double column tie is a simple and versatile form of bondage that can be used to bind two parts of the body together. If you need a reminder about basic rope handling refer to the Square knot single column tie tutorial.

As always, we need to cover a few things before engaging in rope bondage. For a double column tie we need one piece of bondage suitable rope such as hemp, jute or nylon. The rope should be approximately ten to thirty feet in length and have a diameter of 6 to 8mm. For this tutorial we’re using a piece of 6mm thirty foot conditioned hemp. Also remember to have a pair of bandage scissors handy in case of emergency.

Most importantly, gain informed consent before tying and have safe words in place. Let’s get started.

Start by doubling the rope into two parallel lines, and hold the center of the rope in your hands. This is the bight and will be the working end of your rope, essentially the part of the rope used to actually tie the bondage.

Have your rope bottom to place the parts of the body being tied together. Don’t force the range of motion, let the bondage adjust to your partner’s body as you form the bind.

Taking the bight end, begin to wrap the two columns loosely. The goal here is to lay the rope evenly and to adjust your bottom’s body.

Continue to wrap the rope, laying it evenly so it doesn’t create a pressure point against the skin. Two to three wraps is usually sufficient, the extra wraps making the bondage more comfortable.

After finishing the wraps take the two end of the rope and position them so they meet between your two columns. Crossing these two lines will turn the large loop you’ve made into two, distinct column ties.

Use the two lines to tie a overhand knot to begin securing the bind. Make sure that the rope isn’t too tight, there should be enough room to slip a finger between the rope and your partner’s skin.

Tie another overhand knot, thereby creating a square knot. A square knot has the benefits of being easy to untie under pressure but also not collapsing when pulled upon. This allows your play partner to struggle comfortably and safely without the rope tightening unexpectedly.

The finished double column tie. This versatile tie can be used to tie limbs together or to tie one limb to a part of the body such as the torso. At Black Pomegranate our philosophy is to use your partner’s body as a template for creating rope bondage. Play safely, always seek informed consent and have fun.
