This is not all you can do, of course, just the bindings we commonly use.
Remember reading the articles on Safety: Bondage and following the advice we give there and your common sense, for a safe, sane and consensual game that you both can enjoy.
Tying with spread limbs (tension)
For tying your sub with spread limbs, for instance, when you tie your sub standing, or spread-eagled, you could use the following knots:
For tying vertically, or when you donít need tightening the ropes after binding, you could use a French bowline on the wrist or ankle, and a buntline hitch for securing the other end to some object.
Caution: these, as most knots, cannot be untied while under tension. You must have a way for unloading (taking your subís weight from) them for unbinding...
For tying spread-eagled on a bed, or the like, or any time you want to tense the rope after binding, use the French bowline on the limb, and, after passing the rope around the object, use a prusik over the length of rope tied to your subís limb.
Tying non tighten knot
If you don't plan using too much tension (you will have just one loop around the limb) you could use a cuff based on the prusik.
It is faster to make...
...and faster too tighten.
After positioning and when under tension, it will not tighten further around the limb, and as you need both hands for loosening it, it is going to be very difficult for the sub to get free.
