In erotic rope bondage we first have to free ourselves from the tyranny. There are four. The tyranny of the tying person, the tyranny of the tied person, the tyranny of eroticism, and most importantly, the tyranny of the rope. Erotic rope bondage has to free itself from rope to be no longer a slave. Because, and I feel confident in this, rope is the major obstacle to erotic rope bondage.

kinbaku, the connective way of tying with each other.

Kinbaku can be translated as tying with a person in an emotional, or excited, anticipating way. In my view, erotic rope bondage is not meant to be tying a person but rather to tie with a person. There is no such thing as a passive person in Kinbaku.
