Beginner's Guide To Cock & Ball Bondage


Like the idea of binding balls, but worried you’ll cock it up? Then fear not, kinky companions; this Beginner’s Guide to Cock and Ball Bondage contains all the information you require to avoid ballsing it up!


Trust us; you’re bound to enjoy this type of play! In fact, we’d go so far as to say you won’t be able to restrain yourself once you get started. Cock and ball bondage is an UberKinky favourite, and it not only looks pretty, it feels sensational too. Additionally, it can be used in conjunction with other types of play, such as cock and ball torture (CBT) and orgasm control. Restricting blood flow out of the penis, cock and ball bondage keeps you stronger for longer, while also increasing sensitivity. You know what that means don’t you?! Every single sensation, whether pinch, scratch, lick or suck is that much more intense. The skin in this area is also stretched to ensure that more nerve endings are reachable. It’s profound on a physical and emotional level, and it’s easy when you know how. So, have a gander at this guide and we promise it will tie everything up nicely!

 
why

Why?

There are a variety of reasons why people choose to engage in a wee bit of cock and ball bondage! As is makes the sausage much more sensitive, it the perfect choice for use alongside CBT (cock and ball torture). Tight and exposed, it’s a great time to apply a Wartenberg wheel or engage in a little bit of tickle torture. A stretched scrotum can be extremely sensitive for some men and it is possible to inflict more pain with less effort when the cock and balls are bound. Add some sensory deprivation into the mix and you’re in for a blinding experience. Unable to move, the balls have to bear the brunt of the impact without making their usual getaway!

Other reasons for partaking in some cock and ball bondage include orgasm control/chastity, erection control, leading and emasculation. It is possible to bind the cock and balls in such a way that erections are deliberately made uncomfortable or painful. For some it’s simply about the aesthetics and increased sensitivity. Don’t forget pain can be much more intense, but so can pleasure. Whatever the appeal, the bottom will be in the hands of the Dominant and there’s nothing they can do about it. This is a real turn on and represents a high level of trust. But of course, it can be just as much fun to play alone ;) So, don’t be a chicken, give it a try!

 
safety

Safety First!

When it comes to safety it’s vital that you’re on the ball! The main concern for this type of play is circulation and, as such, it’s imperative that it is checked on a regular basis. Ensure that bondage is removed every twenty minutes or so in order to restore optimum blood flow before re-binding. If the bottom experiences any tingling, numbness or swelling the rope should be removed immediately. A drop in temperature is also an indication that circulation has been compromised. The key thing to remember is, if either of you are at all unsure or uncomfortable, remove the bindings immediately.

Cock shibari is an intricate work of art and requires a somewhat thinner than average bondage rope. However, using rope that is too narrow in diameter can cut off circulation completely and even break the skin. Try to stick to ¼ inch thick rope and have safety scissors to hand at all times. Mild skin abrasions may occur, but we certainly don’t want them developing into something worse. Now, UberKinky recommends that bottoms shave before getting started to avoid unwanted pinching and pulling, unless of course that’s what you’re into ;) Additionally, be sure to slide one finger underneath the rope when tying it. This will not only put a stop to pinching, it will also ensure the rope isn’t tied too tight.

Finally, don’t get roped into playing with someone you don’t fully trust. If they aren’t listening to what you have to say or acting responsibly, tell them to get knotted!

types

Types of Rope

So, you’re not sure what to use? Well, you can always count on us to show you the ropes! We recommend starting with a rope that is approximately 6mm in diameter. Narrow enough for cock and ball bondage, yet thicker than parachute cord, the pressure is spread over a greater surface area and is therefore less likely to restrict blood flow or cause any skin breakages. Certain types of cord/rope are scratchy and uncomfortable, so we recommend cotton. It’s soft and gentle with your best bits, but it is also easy to care for and clean. A 6-10 foot length of rope is plenty for basic penis ropework; however, if you’re the more creative type you may wish to choose a slightly longer one. Don’t forget you can cut longer lengths of rope down and stop the ends from fraying by taping them. The type of rope you choose is important, so don’t drop the ball!

 
how

How to Tie the Cock & Balls

So, you think you’re ready to get all tied up with some serious cock and ball bondage? Well, before you get started it’s important to create a nice warm and relaxed environment. Otherwise the balls may not be feeling very playful at all. If they are too afraid to come out of hiding, try to coax them down using a warm cloth. Then you’re ready to get started. Each man is different; some men have low hanging balls so there’s more skin to play with, while others have a light high sack. But we would always recommend binding the balls separately for a much more intense experience! Check out these step-by-step videos to recreate some of our favourite ties;


aftercare

Aftercare

So, you’ve had yourself a ball, but now what? Warmth is the most important thing when it comes to circulation and stimulating blood flow. Be sure to apply a little warmth to the area and even have a blanket handy. Bottoms may be feeling delicate afterwards, so rest and relaxation is extremely important. If the balls aren’t too sensitive, a gentle (and we mean gentle) massage is also a good way to get the blood flowing. Afterwards, give the area a gentle wash with antiseptic soap. As stated previously, very minor abrasions are a possibility. If you do notice any, treat with an ice pack and apply a dab of antiseptic cream to reduce swelling and avoid infection. Then it won’t be long before you can get the ball rolling again...
