TheDuchy (“the dutch-ee”) is one of the oldest and friendliest places on the web to learn about rope bondage. We aren’t a porn site, we don’t assault you with sexual imagery, we don’t even show skin. It is a safe place to learn rope bondage techniques.

You can go make your own porn later…

If you are new to rope bondage, start with Core Knots & Skills for important information on safety, tips on choosing rope, and the basic knots upon which other ties are built.

December 30, 2018

While TheDuchy has been around since 2000, 2018 was the first year we have made a go of actively building a community and gathering your support for the project.  And what a year it has been!  Thousands of people from across the world have joined us to learn and to guide how TheDuchy has grown.  As I have said so many times, (and will say many times in the future), I am deeply grateful to every one of you.

So let’s have a few more things to wrap up 2018!

  • Here is a full body version of the Hishi Karada.  No huge surprises, but in case you hadn’t considered trying this, it can be loads of fun to mummify or mermaid your partner like this and tease them semi-unmercifully  🙂
  • I routinely get questions about the doll I use for most of the tutorials.  Either where to get one like her or why I choose to use a doll.  So I wrote up a short article on the doll and why all the white!?  Those dolls are pretty expensive, so the article also includes other ways you might practice
  • It is time to vote for the next tutorial!  The next tutorial will be the 3-rope TK, but I have added a few new options to the queue, so be sure to jump in and cast your up vote for the tutorials you’d like to see after the 3TK.
  • Speaking of voting, we have been using this continuous voting concept for a few weeks now, so I will send out a survey in a few days to gauge how well you all are liking it.  With your input and support, we will continue to grow and help each other learn more and more!

My best to you and yours as you launch your new year!

While we don’t do nudity or sex in the public areas of this site, these are all adult concepts and themes. Use of this site in any way means that you agree to be bound by the Terms & Conditions. You also consent to the use of cookies, which this site uses to provide several services.
Some people are copying my content and posting it as their own without my permission (illegal) or a link back to my site (totally not cool), so I have had to watermark to my pictures. I don’t mind if you post one of my pictures, but be respectful of my time and effort and provide a link back.
I don’t provide the history on every tie–many of them are general knowledge and the origins are lost to history–but I do include that detail when I do know.  If you happen to know who invented a particular tie, please let me know!  I will add that information and credit you for the find!
