Two weeks ago, we headed to Perv and a Half Studios and experimented with the synthetic ropes. I know that we were planning on bringing it to DO:Fusion so we can do black light rigging. We learned a couple of really valuable lessons that day:
Synthetic rope burns super...fucking fast. Daddy is one who typically likes to rig really quickly, but he had to slow his pace waaaaaaaaaay down to prevent burning his hands and myself. I was really relieved to have clothes on (for once)
Synthetics have quite a bit of stretch. Under the same tensions, the same ties done in jute would have been extremely snug and secure. I could feel the synthetic loosening on me and there was a bit of bounce when I was in the air. It was a totally new sensation. Me no likey.
It's not like we didn't already know these lessons, but we had never actually experienced them before since M0co has never tied with anything BUT jute. I guess it has been a while since I owned shoes with laces...
Here are some photos taken by our friend, LePetitChaton.
Overall, it felt as if I had cheated on a loyal, loving partner with his younger, flashier sibling.
