Hi guys and girls, ladies and gentleman!
I'm new here, and the first thing I want to do is thank Anna - for providing all of us self-bondage lovers with a safe place to discuss our beloved hobby and share our experiences and thoughts with eachother!
And now back to business..
I want to share with all of you my favourite release method, which I call 'The Candle Release'.
Now, I know that only the mentioning of fire - in any form - in relation to self-bondage causes alot of people to go mental, so to speak. But I want to ask all of you not to dismiss this method of release a priori. I am a very careful and considerate person, and believe me; If I had not tested and tried this method of release over and over again with good results, I would not even bother to let you guys know about it!
But, I have - as I just said - tried and tested this method ad nauseum with great results.
Is it fail-safe? If you ask me.. YES it is!
Is it dangerous? If you ask me.. NO it is not, not even the slightest bit!
Here is a picture, so you can judge for yourself:
I think the picture - although I am a lousy drawer, especially in Paint - speaks for itself. If not, ask me!
I want to add a couple of obvious comments:
-Make sure there is not too much draft /replacement of air in the room. A candle flame can take quite a lot of it, but just make sure the candle will keep on burning.
Better be safe than sorry; close your window, place towel against the gap under your door, shutt off the ventilator etc.
-Make sure the candle is placed in a solid and stable 'chandelier', so that it can't fall over, under ANY circumstances.
-IF the candle falls, make sure it does so on a surface that doesn't burn; concrete, iron, steel etc. Make sure there is no carpet or vinyl surrounding the candle.
However, I guarantee you, IF the candle falls, the flame will be out long before the candle hits the surface on which it falls.
-Make sure the keys cannot detache from the 'pin with hole'. I advise to use a paperclip. Bend one end of the paperclip in a 90 degree angle, now you have a solid 'pin' which you can stick through the holes in the keys. Then you can slide the keys further 'through' the curved part of the paperclip.
-Make sure the 'pin' is long enough to prevent any melted wax to accidentally build up on the paperclip. So, make sure there is enough space between the candle and the 'rest of the paperclip'.
No, it won't prevent the paperclip from falling eventually, but it can prolong the session.
Ok, the last thing before you can begin:
Make the Pin - the part of the paperclip that sticks out - hot with a lighter. You can now push the hot 'pin' IN the candle, just pierce through the hard wax.
-Make sure you know how fast the candle burns [or don't if you like surprises].
For example: I have candles that burn 1 centimeter per 35 minutes.
So when I want a session of 1,5 hour, I stick the Pin 2,5 centimeter below the top of the candle [where the flame is].
Now you are ready to enjoy a hot session of self-bondage. Just light the candle, tie yourself up and Enjoy!
PS: the positions in the drawing are just to make the principle clear. Just make sure that when the wax around the Pin melts, the rope swings to where you can reach the keys attached to it.
Oh and if you don't trust this method of release, just try it while your not in bondage. Set the scenario up and go watch your favourite tv-show. Do it one time, five times, ten times...and see for yourself that it works. It does!!
