Bondage tutorial: matanawa, crotch tie

It looks like you really liked my previous bondage tutorial, so without further ado here is another. This is also from my book BDSM – A guide for explorers of extreme eroticism: it is called ‘matanawa‘, meaning ‘rope on the crotch’, and my female readers are going to really love it…

The pictures are again by La Quarta Corda, a real kinbaku connoisseur and teacher from Florence.

Fold an eight-meters long rope in half and start tying holding its folding point, called ‘bight’. Pass the rope behind the back of your subject, then thread it into the bight on the front. Pull in the opposite direction to tighten (not too much!).

Make another wrap around the back, keeping it lower than the previous one and making sure not to cross the ropes nor to overlay the previous first passage. Return on the front, go through the new loop and invert direction again.

Bring the rope under the horizontal wraps, forming a loop through which you’ll thread the rope creating a simple knot. Tighten it, but keep the “belt” comfortable.

Now tie one or more knots which are going to stimulate the ano-genital region, then pull the rope back between the legs.

Pull the rope up and under the horizontal wraps, then down and over them, and finally behind the vertical passage. Make sure to pull this half-knot taut. You can finish here, or use the remaining rope to complete the tie in a creative way.

Bring the rope on the front and loop it under just one of the vertical ropes, return on the back and lightly pull in order to “open” the frontal pass.

On the back, run the rope behind the vertical passage.

Mirror the previous front loop on the other side, go back and under the vertical passage once again.

This is really the end of the tie: you can fasten it by separating the rope ends and tying a knot with them…

…or just use the remaining rope looping it around a previous wrap and securing it by pulling it tightly between two tensioned ropes.
