    Ep110: The Sociology of Rope Communities: An interview with researcher -Ropeology-

    “My main motivation is to improve the literature. People need to know what we do is okay….

    @-Ropeology-

    Fox and Mya love to deepen their understanding of rope. When they came across Zoey (@-Ropeology-), a BDSM researcher who also does rope, they knew they wanted to talk to her. Zoey is keen for rope and BDSM to be understood better by those who do academic research on it, and in this interview, Fox and Mya talk to her about her findings, particularly around rope bondage practice and community, and the sociology of rope, as well as getting to know more about Zoey’s personal rope journey.

    ◦ Zoey’s personal rope practice as a switch
    ◦ What the current academic literature says about rope
    ◦ How rope sub-culture is experienced and how people feel about rope
    ◦ Zoey’s research on community and how rope connects people beyond their local physical city and country

    Ep109: How Chronic Pain Can Affect Your Rope Bondage, and What To Do About It (Listener Question)

    In this vulnerable episode, Fox and Mya discuss the challenge of chronic pain in rope, inspired by a listener - a rope bottom with fibromyalgia.
    Both Mya and Fox have some chronic health issues which include the symptom of chronic pain, and they share some of their own challenges as a rope top and rope bottom in this context, as well as some ideas for handling this.

    In the episode hear them discuss:
    * The challenge of trying to understand where pain is coming from when in rope
    * Spoon Theory and how it relates to rope
    * How chronic pain might impact you as a rope top or rope bottom
    * How chronic pain impacts your body image
    * How the dichotomy of ‘good’ versus ‘bad’ pain might not be helpful, and a better question to ask
    * Practical things to help you do rope when you are handling chronic pain
    * How the constraints of chronic pain can support creativity
    * Scene negotiation when you have chronic pain
    * And a lot more!

    Ep108: Self-suspension Play and Performance - An interview with ShayBlondie

    Ep108: Self-suspension Play and Performance - An interview with ShayBlondie

    “I can’t emphasise enough how good of a learning tool I think self-suspension is. Of course you learn tying techniques, but also skills relating to the experience of being in rope. As a person in rope, self-suspension is an invaluable tool: to lab your preferences, to learn to differentiate between warning signs of damage and sensations that are intense, but not harmful.” Shay Tiziano

    CW: Mentions self-harm, domestic abuse.

    Shay is the author of Tying and Flying: Bondage for Self-suspension, BDSM and sexuality educator, medical professional and host and facilitator of many kink events.

    One of our most-asked for interviews, Mya and Fox are also big fans of her online performances and classes, and were thrilled when Shay agreed to come on the podcast.
    Though the podcast focuses on self-suspension, as Mya and Fox will attest, there’s plenty of useful ideas for ropes bottoms and tops too
    In the episode, discover:
    - How Shay got into self-suspending initially
    - The role of intention in self-suspending and how it makes a difference to your practice
    - Flow, self-suspension and different feeling states it can create
    - How Shay works self-tying into partnered play
    - The skills self-suspenders might need before going in the air
    - How to mitigate the risks of self-suspension, especially some that are less well-known
    - What can rope tops and bottoms learn from self-suspending?
    - Why she thinks a spotter is critical for self-suspenders, and great practical tips to help spotters
    - Circus rope - what is it, and how the BDSM scene needs to embrace it more

My new favorite podcast

For someone new to rope, this is the perfect podcast. If you start with episode zero, you will get a very solid knowledge base. Each episode is entertaining and exciting.
Add to that the very sexy voices of both hosts, this is a must listen for anyone interested in rope.
Many Thanks to you both!

P.S.III ,

So far, so good... mostly

Three episodes in and the information is well presented. They do good job bringing the details “to life”, all the time barring in mind that this is a very large and general area of BDSM. Everybody and every body is different.

That being said the production is very amateurish. Microphones are too close together, causing an echo effect. Also the microphones are not capturing in stereo, so her (Maya?)voice is almost always in my right ear, except when his microphone is picking her up while his (Fox’s)voice is only in my left ear. And the audio levels are not even.

Still, as I said I am in their early work, these technical details may yet be worked out.

Thank you for sharing your journey with no experience. It is truly appreciated.

This podcast is outstanding

This podcast has completely revolutionized my approach to rope bottoming.
At first, I was unsure about the podcast. It took listening to 3 episodes for me to really warm up to the pair. Fox is French and Mya is English so the humor can be stiff and dry. Once you piece together that they are, in fact, a Dominant/ submissive couple, you can really really start to hear and feel the love these two have for one another.
I don’t mean this in a negative way. They are very much like Jim and Pam from the office in their earlier episodes. An almost professional workplace dynamic that makes it difficult to gel together their relevance to one another.
This pair is absolutely delightful and I really hope to meet them one day in the future.
Applying their wisdom into my own rope journey has really empowered me to take control of my purpose as a rope bottom. I have made more progress in my skills in the last 3 months then I have in the entire 22 months I’ve been bottoming. It feels amazing and I get more confident with every tie.
Some of my favorite episodes have been the EM interview, where I learned that this is exactly what I want with a partner. The opening quote that Mya reads from EM put words to what I’ve been seeking out of my play.
I love the rope focus episodes and I wish they would do more.
I loved the more recent episode about tying with multiple people.
The rope at play parties episode was especially useful to me.
The rope journal as well as the negotiation episode was pure gold for me as a bottom and I received so much empowerment to take responsibility of my own journey with the information given.
I also really liked listening to Mya read “The Dilemma.” I hope she does more of her erotica’s in the future.
I have received useful information out of every single episode so far but those are the ones that stuck out to me the most.
This is an excellent, well thought out, authentic podcast worth listening to.
