Who are we?

Nawashi, Rope/Bondage Tops, Rope Sluts, m-jo, Sensualists who enjoy bondage, Knot Fetishists, Shibari fanatics, Nawakesho students, Rope bottoms, Masters and slaves who enjoy the passion of bondage, Mummification aficionados, and others who define themselves as Rope/Bondage/Sensuality Enthusiasts.

We are male, female, transgendered, intersexed.  We are Dom, sub, Top, bottom, Switch, unidentified.  We are Queer, Straight, Bi, Omnisexual.  We are over 18, under-dead.  We are from whatever culture we call our own... and we even try to respect one another :)  Tough call, I know, but we're going to try.

Why are we doing this?

We have found that the Portland/Vancouver Metro area has a very diverse yet skilled group of Bondage enthusiasts who previously only could gather at Friday parties, KinkFest, Kink in the Woods, the occasional private party... and we wanted a group to call our own, our own parties where when wrapping our loved one in layers of shrink wrap or suspending our lovers by their toes we did not have to dodge single tails.  Also, we wanted to trade knowledge, skills, swap books, offer a space for rope bottoms to meet Tops with different styles, and in general make friends with individuals who "get it".  Bondage Enthusiasts are a horse of a different color... who can understand that sometimes bondage *is* the point, that it is a journey in and of itself... and this group offers a place for like-minded individuals to congregate.

  • what you hope to get out of BodyBound (aka "why us?" education, making contacts, a place to suspend your loved one by their toes...)

Other Sources of Resources:

I kept a list here for many years of world bondage resources, but I have found that I do not have time for its upkeep as so many great sources come and go.  I will refer you to the feverish work that is being done by the folks at Adult Rope Art for your further edification.

Adult Rope Art yahoo group is a must-join for serious bondage enthusiasts to enjoy amazing discussions.

Adult Rope Art Fetlife Group - the folks at Fetlife have created a resourced by fetishists and kinksters by fetishists and kinksters, and the resource list here is truly invaluable.  You will need to create a free fetlife profile to join in the conversation.
