    Argggh!
    I wanted to love that set. I wanted to give it five stars. It’s the sort of thing I’ve been calling for, here on the forum, for years.

    But reverse-prayer ties are like fingersnails on an old-fashioned chalkboard for me, every time I see them.

    And now “The Proper Decorum” – same effect. I really want to love that set too, but seeing the reverse-prayer tie makes me wince.

    “Ariel Against The Light” – beautiful set, only [wince]

    Am very interested to know why the reverse prayer seems to be the marmite of bondage. Please enlighten me! 😛 I love them; I love the aesthetics of the reverse prayer and I LOVE being put in one. Ariel Against the Light is probably my favourite February 2017 set. 🙂

    I’m not sure I can say why. Somehow it just looks like it ought to be an extremely stressful & painful position. It might be partly because I associate it with carpal tunnel syndrome; holding your hands/wrists bent like that (in front, rather than behind) is the common test for carpal tunnel.

    And as I said, “Ariel Against the Light” is a beautiful set otherwise, and I would have rated it very highly if it had used one of the other behind-the-back ties.

    Ahh I see, that makes sense. Personally, I find the reverse prayer to be the most comfortable behind-the-back ties after the box tie. It depends how high the hands go up your back naturally; mine can go reasonably high, so it can be a stress-free, pain-free tie for me. Elbows-together strappados are quite strenuous for me, so even though it’s possible, I can’t stay in it for long at all, whereas (I am led to believe) Ariel can get her elbows together without assistance because she’s MAGIC. It all depends on the rope bottom’s flexibility.

    I wonder how you feel about strappados and hammerlocks?

    Emotionally, I see strappados as “Strict and not at all fun, but still not as bad as reverse-prayer,” and hammerlocks as “Looks cool! And a nice balance between strict and comfortable.” Intellectually, I know that they’re both nastier than they look (or than they look to me), and that yes, I do have a disconnect between my intellectual understanding and my emotional reaction.
