The Piledriver

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back. Their legs are side by side and raised straight up in the air. Their hands are crossed behind their head and a single column tie is tied around their ankles.

The piledriver is as simple as a bondage position can be. Tie your partner’s ankles together, raise them up in the air, and you’re done. It’s great for exposure as well as for penetrative sex (though some people may find it leads to uncomfortably deep penetration). We also like it for pain play.

It’s also a versatile starting point for all kinds of additional techniques—we’ve shown a few of our favorites, but we are confident that you’ll find new variations of your own.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back with their legs straight up in the air. Their hands are in an antiparallel position behind the knees, with the fingers of each hand reaching the elbow of the other arm. The forearms are tied together with a single column tie in blue rope.

Hands behind knees

The piledriver is much more restrictive if you tie the forearms behind the knees with a single column tie.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back with their legs straight up in the air. Their hands are held next to their knees and their wrists are tied together with a long bar tie in blue rope. The bar tie passes right behind their knees.

Bar tie

Alternatively, you can achieve the same effect with a bar tie. This may be more comfortable for less flexible people.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back. Their legs are side by side and raised straight up in the air and tied together at the ankles. Their wrists are tied together and pulled back over their head. The wrists and ankles are pulled into place by green ropes that exit the frame above their head.

Tie off the arms and legs

We like to tie the ankles to the headboard of the bed for extra access and exposure.

You’ll probably also want to tie off the arms, either to the headboard or to the sides of the bed.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back with their legs straight up in the air. A blue single column tie is tied around their ankles and a green rope is pulling the ankles up to a hardpoint that is not visible in the image.

Add a vertical line

If you have a hardpoint and know how to use it safely, you can tie the ankles to it.

A person in a white bodysuit lying on their back with their hands lying above their head. Their ankles are tied together with blue rope. Their thighs are tied together with a green rope, which is attached to a blue chest harness. The connecting line is tight enough to pull the thighs up toward the chest and the legs are partly bent.

Add a chest harness

You can make the piledriver more restrictive by tying the thighs to the chest.

Begin with a chest harness, with the bight in front so your partner isn’t lying on the knot. Add a column tie around the legs just above the knees and tie it off to the chest harness.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back with their legs straight up in the air. The legs are tied together with a ladder consisting of a series of plus-shaped rungs. The ladder is attached at the ankles to an out-of-frame point in the ceiling.

Leg ladders

A good way to make the piledriver more confining is to tie a single column tie around the waist and then tie a ladder all the way up the legs to the ankles.

A person in a white bodysuit is lying on their back with their legs straight up in the air. Their legs are tied together with blue and green ropes that meet each other in a criss-cross pattern. At each crossing, the green rope is tied to the blue rope with a Munter friction.

Spiral wrap

Alternatively, you can bind the legs together using the spiral wrap plus Munter technique used in the spiral futomomo.
