Roles & Responsibilities

One of the worst assumptions/misconceptions I’ve heard from both newbie and intermediate practitioners alike is that rope bottoms don’t have to do anything when they’re being bound since they argue that “the top’s going to do all the work anyway”.

Both tops and bottoms are responsible for keeping the session as safe as possible. So when we engage in bondage without understanding the risks (let alone how to mitigate them), we should at least know that we’re creating opportunities for accidents that can seriously and negatively affect our daily lives.

Do flip through the links below to find out what can be expected of or performed by both roles, so that you can enjoy safer and more satisfying sessions!

References & Recommendations

Highly Recommended: Don’t let the name fool you: Clover’s guide is one of the best introductory readings for both tops and bottoms as it covers important topics like how to screen for responsible riggers, prevent nerve injuries, understand the different risks per tie, and more!
