I now feel somewhat proficient at the few ties I've learned. I'm therefore starting to discover more ties and different techniques. I'm taking into consideration ties which, when I'm ready, can be used as part of suspension bondage.
In October we're travelling to Japan, where kinbaku (a form of rope bondage) originated. I've started taking a look at whether it's possible to meet up with any rope practitioners. In the meantime, I've some dates coming up with whom I hope to further hone my technique.
