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.
Bottoms: arch your back into the bend rather than lying passively and letting the rope pull you into position.
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. The adjustable grip hitch will let you adjust the position as your partner settles into the tie.
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.
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:
Necks are delicate: work with your partner to find a position that’s safe and comfortable.
