Breast bondage

Breast bondage is a technique used in BDSM play. It differs from most bondage techniques in that it is not intended to restrict the mobility of the tied person directly. However, it can do so indirectly when it is combined with other techniques. A bondage harness can also be used to achieve the same effect as breast bondage. Sometimes, nipple clamps are placed on the nipples or other, more involved methods of tit torture are combined with breast bondage for a greater erotic effect.

Methods

1/4 inch ropes, ribbon, or leather straps are used to flatten the breasts. Chains can also be used, having the advantage of increased sensational awareness through their coldness which can be increased by prepping in a freezer. In breast binding, it is also common for bandages, plastic wraps, and duct tape to flatten breasts, nipples, and areolas. Along with these forms of painful pleasure or pleasurable pain there is breast spanking a rare occurance but enjoyed by some where the breasts are spanked much like ones posterior.

Techniques

Ropes are tied around the base of each breast, causing the breasts to bulge outwards. Usually, the same rope is used for both breasts so that the rope harness is automatically held together at the front. The rope may then also be fixed behind the back, to make a sort of bra. For this to work, the tied person needs large breasts; it is rarely possible to do it to a male.

Another technique is to put a rope round the torso just above the breasts, and another one just below them, then push the ropes together to squeeze the breasts from the top and bottom, as shown at right. This can be done instead of, or as well as, the other method. A rope can also be passed over the shoulders and between the breasts, drawing the rope above and below the breasts together, then pass back over the shoulders to the knots at the back. The primary rope can be used to place cinches between the arms and the body.

This technique is often combined with elbow bondage, to make the breasts stick out even more, as shown in the picture above. When using elbow bondage in an advanced method, the elbow ropes as they pass under the shoulders and behind the neck can draw the ropes above and below the breasts together at the sides of the breasts, thus resulting in rope effectively surrounding the breasts. Alternatively, the ropes across the back can be linked to a box tie or a reverse prayer position.

Effect and other uses

Apart from the visual appearance of the breasts being lifted, the pressure that is applied results in a reduction in blood flow, and a further swelling and firming of the breasts. This makes them very sensitive, especially the nipples and surrounding areas, and it can be quite pleasurable to the bound person when they are stimulated. Conversely, if nipple clamps are used, the nipples will be particularly sensitive to this and the degree of pain significantly greater. Rubber bands around the breasts have also been used with breast bondage to increase this effect still further, but can lead to a dangerous restriction in blood flow (see safety).

Breast bondage can play an integral part in suspension bondage. If the subject is being suspended, particularly in a horizontal position such as a suspended hogtie, breast bondage is used as the main supporting area under the chest. If there are ropes above and below the breasts at the upper chest, the weight of the upper body is taken by these ropes. With so much pressure in this area, the rope must be precisely placed or once again blood flow could be reduced (see safety). The Japanese use a sophisticated form of breast bondage called "Ushiro Takatekote." Similar to breast bondage combined with a box tie, it is often used in suspension bondage.

Safety

As with any situation where tight ropes are used, it is possible that blood flow will be restricted too much, which can cause pain and lasting damage. Photos of breast bondage sometimes show that the breasts have turned purple. Always take care whenever the breasts or nipples begin to change colour or become cool to the touch. It is better to have several short sessions than one long one. If you decide to flagellate bound breasts, ensure that you use a low-impact device. Binding the breast removes its natural ability to shift on impact and compacts the tissues so that any hard blow can increase the potential for damage. Rupturing, internal tearing and stretch marks are all hazards of breast suspension if not done properly. If you engage in suspension bondage, make certain that the body is properly suspended through additional means and not by the breasts only. A sharp pair of scissors with blunt points for safety should be kept at hand to quickly undo the bondage in the event of an emergency.
