A comfortable rope harness

15th February, 2016

In one hand you have a bag of yummy orange things that taste good and are made by a tiger on drugs. The other, a length of strong cord made by twisting together strands of fibers. Initiate breaks, reverse thrusters, turn in to a brick wall now. Do you really want to get your rope covered in dangerously cheesy crack powder? Ok, now both hands are holding a strong length of natural fiber. Your partner yearns for a set of straps that provide physical ease and that allows for relaxation. There is nothing like being twenty minutes in to fun time only to have it come to a screeching halt. No one enjoys listening to their partner complain about the stiffness of joints or the rigor mortis that is setting in...Wait are we tying up a dead body? Of course not, that would just lead to questions and no one wants the smell of a putrid rotting zombie flesh in their home or do they? In that case please seek help. We would all prefer longer sessions as this leads to more play, relaxation, and ultimately subspace if we're doing it right. You’ve already mastered the Takate-Kote yet it leaves much to be desired.

Too closely related to rig

They say copying is the sincerest form of flattery...not the creepy, "I dress up in your red dress and try out your makeup when you're not looking" kind. That is how you can interpret the Go-te Shibari. It is the incestual cousin to the Takate-Kote. The difference being arm placement. The Go-te has the arms parallel to the floor in a resting position, while the Takate raises the arms towards the upper back. Leaving the arms parallel keep the joints in a relaxed state. You will no longer have to stop prematurely. Their is nothing like going tell completion…yes you know what I mean. Do to the comfort provided, the Go-te Shibari lends itself well to flying. While its cousin can be used this way, it tends to be more taxing than our government. We the people should be deciding how our arms are taxed in suspensions. Don’t let the man beat you down…unless you’re in to that sorta thing. Then by all means lets find you a paddle.

Cast from the same mold

Go-te could be considered the generic term for a number of harnesses or box ties. No matter what you say, few if any riggers will ever tell you different. If they do, you could just be a smart ass and tell them the opposite. This will help perpetuate arguments of box ties further. Go you! In the end, every box tie has its own characteristics. They all could be considered a hybrid of each other as well. Because hybrids are safe for the environment, unless you look at battery disposal. Wait, wrong tangent. If you find something that you like, consider using it in another tie. I find this to be the point of rope bondage. Discover ideas and make them your own by adding rainbow colored flare, demonic powers, or just good old restraint.
