The traditional armbinder is one of the sexiest rope ties possible. It can be challenging to implement if you don't have a bottom who can naturally touch her elbows behind their back. Having an assistant handy to help hold arms close together when trying this tie for the first time is a good idea. Also, make sure your bottom has thoroughly stretched before attempting this tie to prevent any muscle or tendon damage and please don't force it past his or her ability to endure.

I learned this tie from Taipan at Shibaricon several years ago. I exclusively use this tie or the Sommerville Bowline instead of the japanese suspension cuff as a non-tightening cuff for arms and legs. Beware that you will not be able to until this cuff under tension. This is both a positive and negative quality of this knot.
NOTE: this tie is often demonstrated with a single rope as the running end instead of using a doubled rope with a bight as the running end as demonstrated here.

This is a variation on the typical double column (wrist, ankle legs, any two limbs) tie. Origin unknown. Model: June StPaul

2011 was a transitional year for me and I did not have much time for photography or art but I did manage to take a few things I enjoyed.
2012 is looking to be an amazing year. Stay tuned for good stuff coming from the land of monkeys...
