Bondage is a wonderful way to enhance your love-making but when we looked we could not find any resources on the subject. How would people know how to tie safely, what knot to use, which rope to buy and most importantly, how to approach their partner with the idea of kinky sex?
"Bondage for Sex" was a book that needed to be written and Chanta Rose does a wonderful job of breaking down the barriers and making rope bondage simple for all who wish to try it. Filled with step by step photography, Bondage for Sex it is perfect for the couple that prefers to
From the Author
Bondage used in love-making is not taboo or difficult in my world, and if it is in yours then I wrote this book for you. Rope need not be intimidating, nor should approaching your partner with your desires. Bondage is not a weapon but a tool that requires trust and respect.
"Bondage for Sex" will guide you on your journey into kinky love-making and answer all of your questions along the way.

I don't even know what to say about this book it is so amazing. It is a full color book, and the pictures are amazing. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. While most shibari books give you what are generally considered "the basics" of bondage, Chanta's book shows you how to take that one step further and tie your partner up into erotic positions, making them readily available to tease or to *censored*.
Now, I would not consider this a book for people who already have the basics and want to learn more intricate ropework. However, it is great for newbies who don't necessarily want to tie their partner up into a pretty little package, but want to be able to play with them too.
Rope work of any kind is confusing for most folks. Luckily methods have been developed to teach rope work. The Navys, Coast Guards, Boy Scouts, rock climbers, firefighters, sailors, window washers, etc. of the world have found great methods of teaching safe rope work. They know that photos alone are confusing. Text descriptions are not helpful to most. You need clean, simple drawings or annotated photographs. If they had been included in this book it would have been a winner.
Because of the inherent danger in this type of play there isn't any room for confusion. Life and limbs are easily damaged. Bondage is inherently risky when done correctly. We know that.
When you add sex with bondage the risks increase. There is more weight and forces on the limbs, tissue, rope and hard points. Sexual activity also distracts your attention and distracts the person in bondage. This increases the risks. Given all of this, its imperative that we get the basics absolutely right. That isn't possible with this book.
Hopefully the author will revise future editions. Certainly if there is a Vol. II, this must be corrected. Midori's book is a great example of a correct way to illustrate rope work. There are other good examples in the textbooks of the professions that use rope.
Until this is corrected I strongly recommend staying away from this book. Please Chanta, fix this and provide a needed text.
I really enjoyed the book, can't wait for the sequel, and would buy any other book the author chooses to write.
It's absolutely perfect for couples with no prior knowledge of bondage and its clear (and stunning) photographs and instructions will ensure you have a wonderful time!
The problem is that the book is advertised as usable step-by-step bondage instruction. And it is NOT. Many if not most illustrations and text are not usable ... are too poorly-done to actually be followed by a beginner. The problems include too few photos, photos either duplicated or out-of-sequence, and inadequate or vague text. In addition, many of the knot photos are not thought out, and/or are tied tight and cinched up before the reader has a chance to study the knot and see what has actually been done. Additionally, often the best way to explain knots is to use inked arrows and/or sketches as well as the photos.
There's no secret about illustrating knot-tying adequately. SHIBARI YOU CAN USE by Bridgett Harrington covers much the same ground, and her illustrations and text are well thought-out and USABLE.
Chanta Rose's book also contains some astounding errors! On Pg. 20 Rose shows a "Reef Knot" (aka "Square Knot"). She warns against tying it wrong, making it a "Granny Knot." But her own photos ARE WRONG! They illustrate a Granny, rather than a Square Knot! This is an astonishing error, and makes me wonder if anyone ever carefully read the book and proofed the text and illustrations for usability and correctness! (OTOH, the errors may not matter much, since it's so hard to follow the photos!).
As an interesting sidenote, incorrectly-tied Reef Knots, or misused Reef Knots, have probably accidentally killed more people in the Western world than all other knots combined.Read more ›

Great photography and text etc, but as a beginner the directions on tying the knots was not very clear.
Overall though great firts timer book for positions for both partners
Most of the ties are easy enough even for beginners. For any intermediate rigger, or above, this is very rudimentary and has very little variety. Read morePublished on September 30, 2013 by Amazon Customer
