There’s a good reason the hogtie is a bondage classic. It’s a highly adaptable tie that can be strict and demanding if you want it to be, but can be adapted to be comfortable enough for almost anyone.
1Begin with a chest harness or a figure 8 shoulder harness. The chest harness is more comfortable, but the figure 8 will give you better leverage for pulling into a back bend.
2Have your partner lie face down and tie their hands together using your favorite column tie.
3Tie the ankles together.
4Run a rope from the ankles to the chest harness and carefully pull into a back bend. Tie off with a jam-resistant knot.
Bottoms: arch your back into the bend rather than lying passively and letting the rope pull you.
You can separate the arms rather than tying the wrists together.
Using a bar tie will make the hogtie more sustainable, while attaching the wrists directly to the ankles can make it more strenuous.
A very strenuous option is to tie the arms together in a strappado position.
There are lots of fun options for separating the legs:
You can get a deeper back bend and relieve some pressure on the chest by attaching a second ankle line to the head.
Good attachment points include:
Remember that necks are delicate and talk with your partner to find a degree of bend that’s safe and comfortable.
