Welcome to the RopeMarks newsletter.

We will briefly describe what we have been up to since our last newsletter and about interesting upcoming events where you can meet, greet and talk to us.

But, I would like to start with something new (for me).

I just set my rope on fire...

No, I was not using a lighter or any other fire starter. I was playing with my girl, rope and and a bamboo beam and then my rope caught fire.

I just set my rope on fire... :-)

This is something completely new for me.

Here is how it happened; happily tying my drop dead gorgeus girl, suspending her from my bamboo beam (I have a South American guadua angustifolia beam) and at one point of our play I perform a lift from where my girl is close to the floor to nearly all the way to the beam.

In this action my jute rope was sliding over the beam, fast, this resulted in friction between my rope and the beam. This friction must have turned into so much heat that it resulted in my rope catching fire.

Most of it was just sparks, slapping it made the fire die, no harm done to my girl. My bamboo has a smooth shiny spot where most of the friction took place and the rope at one point was thinner that the rest of that length (that length is retired now).

No pictures, this was private action.

Am I alone in this experience or have others experienced this as well?

There's a thread going on FetLife about this.


Let's dive into the details of what we've been up to:

We ended the year 2017 in a photographic bang with RopeMarks' own slavegirl and bimbo, Arienh, and we did nothing less than "bang" into 2018 by putting RopeMarks' two favorites together in one room with, well.. me, Daisy Bells (who will be introduced as an official RopeMarks model soon) and Spring . With two good looking, sexy as f*ck, bondage-loving girls nothing less but fire is expected and they did not come up short of hotness. Here's a behind the scenes sneak peak:

The past period we provided a handful of private tuition's and, as the name implies, they are private, but one very fun and memorable workshop was where we received a home cooked dinner afterwards, best payment effa! (do take the hint here, make us a good offer and we'll provide the tuition)

We also started with our new series of Bondage for sex workshops, we are of to a very good start. In a very very tiny nutshell this series of workshops is Japanese bondage centric with practical application and exercises for sexual usage. Bringing the sex back in bondage where I believe the "scene" has lost this. No picture either because of, I think, obvious reasons :)
