Rope, Bondage and Power…OUT NOW!

This book is the first anthology to look at so many varied perspectives on how rope, bondage and power interrelate with one another- from gender to the power struggles of class, and even Chinese medicine as a model for moving energy to setting intent in your scenes… you’ll be blown away.  Lee Harrington started working on this project, what became a whopping 17 essays plus his own by a total of 20 authors.

The 18 pieces in the book are:

  • Forward: Rope, Bondage & Power – Lee Harrington
  • “Ceci n’est pas une Corde”: the Personal Significance of Rope – Graydancer
  • Seduced by the kisses of rope: Rituals and mental energy – Zamil
  • Exchanging Power with the Rope – Janice Stine
  • On the Outside Looking in with a Fist Full of Rope – Van Darkholme
  • Surrendering to the Vision – Coral Mallow
  • The Giving and Taking of Rope – Tonbi
  • Thoughts on Rope, Submission and Feminism – Madison Young
  • Bondage for people, not parcels – Esinem/Bruce Argue
  • The Way of a Zen Rope Master – JD of Two Knotty Boys
  • Finding Freedom from Performance Anxiety – Maria Shadoes
  • Personal Rope, Universal Power – Mark Yu
  • Matching Intentions: Finding the Right Partner – Lady Gold
  • Magick, Spirituality, and Paradox in Rope Bondage – Ariana Dawnhawk and Ryan
  • Anatomy of a Scene – Tony Buff and Derek da Silva
  • The Power of Fluency – LqqkOut
  • Bondage & Vulnerability – Sarah Sloane
  • I was Me: Alone in a Crowd – Klawdya Rothschild

People with over 20 years experience in the scene, and those who are coming in with fresh eyes and perspectives. Authors from across the USA, as well as England, Australia and Germany. Public and private players. International icons of rope and porn, and voices who you may not have heard of yet but deserve to sing just as loudly.

A portion of the proceeds go to Leather Archives and Museum, Woodhull Foundation and National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.
