Who created Black Tie Bondage?

Black Tie Bondage was created by Orpheus Black.

How was Black Tie Bondage created?

Black Tie Bondage was created by accident. Orpheus was doing a scene with a sub, when he decided to use wooden inserts in order to spice up the bondage. After the scene, instead of untying the sub he decided to remove the insert first and the bondage fell away.

Why is Black Tie Bondage used?

Because of its ability to be removed quickly, Black Tie Bondage is primarily used when a trained and experienced Bondage/Fire Artist wants to blend fire play with rope bondage. If something were to go wrong during the fire scene, the Black Tie Bondage can be removed much more quickly compared with traditional rope bondage techniques.

What makes Black Tie Bondage different from other forms of Bondage?

There are 2 major differences between Black Tie Bondage and other forms of bondage.

1:  Black Tie Bondage, or BTB, employs no locking knots.

2:  In BTB, the use of a "quick release" pin sets it apart from all other forms of bondage.

​When the tie is done correctly, the bondage easily comes loose when the pin is removed.

With no knots employed in BTB, what holds the bondage together?

This unique form of bondage relies on static friction in order to keep the ropes together.

What is static fiction?

Static friction is a force that holds back the movement of a sliding object.

How/when does static friction occur?

Static friction occurs when two objects are in contact with each other but are not moving relative to each other, such as a desk on the floor.

Why do the ropes not slip?

The initial force required to get an object moving is often dominated by static friction. This means that there is more static friction on the rope compared to the amount of lateral or vertical force being exerted on the rope. Specifically, the downward or upward force would need to be so much greater than the static friction in order to cause a spiraling force that would unwrap and loosen the ropes.
