We got this "Japanese Silk Rope" and a few other things; to play, "spice things up," and experiment with. It seems great so far. There are a lot of things you can do with rope! So we've only just begun the experiment part. It's 35 feet long, so you can do a lot with it. Tie hands and feet. Do wrapping. Tie somebody to the mast, in case of a hurricane.
The rope is about a quarter of an inch in diameter, Dark Red, and really soft! It feels good to the touch, and doesn't have an offensive odor. In fact, I had to press the rope right up to my nostrils to smell anything at all! This rope is easy to tie, and easy to untie.
So, this Silk Rope is: fun, kinky, soft, strong, easy to use, nice to look at, kind to the senses, educational, and economical!
