Crossing the road and safety related to suspension bondage.

It can seem overwhelming when people speak of the potential dangers of rope bondage.

The thing is however to be aware of the dangers so that you can avoid them!

You should not let the risks frighten you but they should make you properly cautious and exercise due diligence to reduce the risks, to be informed about them. To realistically know what they are and if you’re prepared to accept them.

Crossing a busy road for instance can be dangerous and someone just walking out without any awareness of the dangers is quite likely to have a nasty accident. However if you are aware of the dangers, real though they are, you can avoid them.

Crossing the road is always more risky than not crossing the road. Doing bondage is always more risky than not doing bondage. In neither instance is it possible to totally remove risk but it is possible to reduce it to a manageable and acceptable level.

After all crossing a busy road has probably more likelihood of imminent death for the unwary than bondage. And yet… we still cross the road.

… and bungee and sail and race and climb and…

Does this all make it sound terrifying? Good, there’s a real point to that, but! You do cross the road every day, you learn how to do it safer, skydiving sounds terrifying but with the right know-how, well how many accidents do you hear of? That’s right there are still some but they’re blessedly few. Due to knowledge, due to learning, due to people having built on the experience of those before them.

And when we do these things we learn something about them, usually from someone with good experience and reputation; in fact we seek them out. So that when we jump from the bridge, out of the plane or fall off the cliff we have maybe some idea how to deal with it, how to be safer than if you just went ahead and tried without learning anything first, without benefiting from the experience of others.

Would you really pack a parachute and trust a life to it without really, really learning all you could about how to do it properly first? Would you really just guess at how it probably went and just jump?

Would you really tie someone and hang their life on a rope without really, really learning all you could about how to do it first? Really?
