I just read the chapters on curvy bodies and on gender non-conforming bodies. The curvy bodies chapter was very thorough and useful. The gender non-conforming bodies chapter had few trans men and didn't have what I was looking for in terms of adapting chest harnesses for AFAB folks who do not want things accentuated.

Not rating the book, but done with it for now. Will come back to it later, probably. I'm very glad it exists.

I found this book to be different from other rope books. It's not a "how-to" for knots and patterns in rope.

And even though there are chapters that tell you that you can ropebottom with every body type etc etc, it still made me a little self-conscious. But that may just be me, because this was always a bit of a weak point of mine. I'd still recommend this book absolutely to everyone i

An absolutely gorgeous book that covers a topic few, if any, other books address: safe and specific bondage for specific body types and restrictions. While I think it would be even better if I was in a situation to have the print copy, the images in the electronic version are clear and well produced. The text is instructive and easy to follow.
