Interview with rope slut: Emily Bingham

How long have you been involved in rope and how did you get involved?

I’ve been interested in rope since I was a child, trying to get playground buddies to tie me up with my jump rope. So my passion for bondage started early and has only grown from there! Once I learned there was a whole world of kinksters, I’ve just never stopped learning by taking classes as often as I can. I love learning new ties, twisting them to fit my sadistic and silly style and sharing them with my friends and students to pass on the desire for rope to as many people as possible.

What advice would you give your younger self when you started exploring this type of play?

My younger self as a bottom could have benefited from spending spending more time learning about safety and consent. And I’d tell my younger toppy self not to worry so much about rope being pretty and complicated like in the photos on Fetlife or Instagram and focus instead on it being fun, sexy, and surprisingly easy to learn.

How has your play evolved?

I started out thinking rope was super elaborate suspensions and mostly just for photos. Now I almost exclusively do bedroom bondage with my lovers on the comfort of a mattress, getting all tangled up and having the best silly times.

What do you love about sharing your kink or fetish with others?

I enjoy showing beginners that rope isn’t as difficult as it looks, that if you can tie your shoes you already know the one knot you need to know for bedroom bondage. The look of glee in people’s eyes as they hurry out the door to put their new skills to work with their lover in private gives me the happiest feels.
