Tie Me Up Tuesday

Tying a Rope Gauntlet

Life update…Maybe you’re wondering why I scaled back on writing for some memes. Lately, it’s been harder for me to write about D/s. I feel like there’s a disconnect and writing about it just makes me sad. It brings up memories and I end up getting a bit depressed. I’m thankful for CL, but being hurt by Sir is still pretty fresh and thinking about things related to D/s is painful for me.


I know I used to post exactly on Tuesday, but ever since Sir ghosted me, I found myself putting it off. Maybe the joy of bondage was found in my submission. Without Sir, I am no longer bound.

But my motivation to do a lot of things has gone away. I don’t want to work, write or read. At least I’m eating again, but sleeping is another story. I think I need to reinvent myself so that the things I need to do daily are no longer associated with submission, but just living.

I put Tie Me Up Tuesday off until last night. So I stayed up tying both versions of the gauntlet and showed CL. At the moment, I think being able to be naked or slutty for CL is the only thing I’m motivated to do.


The first gauntlet that I attempted was the Continuous Reverse Gauntlet on The Duchy. It was a fairly easy tie. I just refused to cut my rope so it took a long time to get through all the rope and then get out of the tie as the rope was so long.

It turned out pretty clean which I was proud about as most of my ties look messy.

Did you really think I was going to show my face? Haha. This one sort of reminded me of a cast because it went up my whole forearm. It didn’t seem as decorative to me.


I undid the tie and proceeded to try to the Rigger Gaunlet by Two Knotty Boys. This one was also pretty easy to do.

This one also came out fairly clean except for the top. It was really late and I just wanted to finish so I stopped worry about untwisting the ropes. I also didn’t want any excess rope to show so I tucked it under the gauntlet which I guess made it look a bit messier.

Yes, I was completely naked when I did the tie. I knew that I wanted to show CL so I made sure he’d be able to see my naked body as well. He said that my boobs were the first thing he noticed in the photos. CL likes boobs if you couldn’t tell haha.

I think CL’s attention is definitely helping me. When he tells me to do something, it also motivates me. He may not consider himself a Dom, but he’s been pretty good at getting me to obey him.

  1. Love the rope gauntlet, Sass. I still need to tie mine (I’m running a week behind because I wasn’t well last weekend) and it seems this is going to be quite an easy tie to do. Now to decide which color I want to use 😉

    1. Can’t wait to see how yours turns out. If the rope is shorter, I’m sure you’ll finish the tie within minutes.

  2. Looks good! I love that one by Two Knotty boys and use it quite often 🙂

    1. Thank you Mrs K. Has this one ever given you a bit of rope burn? After untying my arm, I had slight rope burn for a couple of days. Maybe, it’s because of the friction from tying and untying the two versions on the same arm right after each other.

  3. These are so neatly done. Well done. I love gauntlets, they are such a welcome rope hug and a good way to help me unwind mentally. I hope you find a way to feeling less sad soon, though I know it is hard.

    1. Thank you. It comes and goes. Some days are worse than others. I think when it’s around the time that would have marked another month together, I get a bit sad. It just reminds me that even though we talked and laughed about me still being his sub when he was 90, my forever with him didn’t last.

  4. You have done that brilliantly – such a pretty colour rope too

    1. Thanks May!

  5. I’m so sorry to read about your struggle to feel motivated or find joy in D/s at the moment. I know exactly how you feel and have been there before. I wish I could make it better for you and hope you know that no one is upset if you have to scale back and can’t join memes at the moment. I just want you to be okay. I too felt like I had to reinvent myself after Lois. The good news is that it’s possible and things will get better, I promise.
    I’m glad you have CL to support a little.
    Your tie looks really clean to me! I think I also prefer the second one and agree that when it gets too long it’s less just decorative and more of a full sleeve! 😂
    I especially love the third picture you took 😍

    1. Thank you ML! I guess I’ve just been waiting for that goodbye. And when I tried to get one, I found that he had completely blocked me without so much as a word as to why he just left me. It made me feel that sense of abandonment once again. It’s why I don’t like to get attached and when I do, I hold on tightly out of fear that they too will leave me.

      1. I completely understand what you mean. I’m really sorry that happened to you. It’s not okay to just block someone like that. Especially considering the kind of dynamic you were in.

  6. Those are very tidy ties! Did you find them meditative to tie/untie with all that length ?

    We’ve not met before but I’m sorry to hear you’ve had trouble recently and glad you’ve got support…

    1. It wasn’t quite meditative haha. I kept thinking, “How much more rope do I have to go?” I should buy shorter rope. I had purchase several in each color so I could cut them, but I just can’t bring myself to cut and ruin the ropes. I’m weird like that haha.

  7. It boggles my mind that you can do that with one hand. Nice work and nicely photographed,.

    1. Thank you. Maybe one day someone will tie me up instead.
