Leon’s Knot (Captured Half Hitch?)

This is a knot devised mid-scene. It has no official name. Feel free to comment here if you’ve seen it somewhere else with an official name. Model: CherriesJubalie


Standard Safety disclaimer: Bondage is fun but it can also be dangerous. Ropes that are too tight or in the wrong place can cut off blood flow or cause nerve damage. It is your responsibility to ensure that you play safely. That, and don’t try the final result of this image without a very experienced bondage model. Cherry only stayed in that pose for 30 seconds!


Whatever you do, have fun doing it!
