Cable Hoist
#1
As a long time SB practitioner I'm always looking for the next tie. For a way to be bound like in the pictures. For years I have been using anchor points in the ceiling and have been tugging on ropes to get the appropriate tension on this rope or that. Not that I'm bad at achieving but I'm thinking why not jump up to the next level and get a wirelessly controlled cable hoist. With the push of a button you can go from a simple hogtie to a partial suspension hogtie or even more. The possibilities are mind blowing. Is anyone else out there already doing this?

E.g. slowly lowering down after some time.

I experimented with pulleys, not with hoists. In any case, the first questions are safety related as always

o- the proper harness (harness syndrome, nerve pinching, artery blockage, etc)
o- mechanical pulling limiters (e.g. to physically prevent overtightening)
o- release mechanisms

How about during a lift, a rope slips and tightens around your neck?
Or tightens to the point that all blood is cut off in your arms, and they dangle till the sessons ends.
I'll pass on the hoist for now.

Good points, all valid. But no different than kneeling on a chair getting nearly into a suspension and sliding off the chair to achieve the full suspension. Actually it might well be more safe because you can add tension or release tension with the push of a button and you wont start off half a meter off the floor.

Then, may I add a spring? In this way, you can have all the tenchion you want.

A spring would be an uncontrolled variable. The basics for self bondage and especially for self bondage suspensions are to maintain control. To be sure of what you are doing.

Perhaps we should start out with a discussion on how to tie a few no slip knots. a Wiremans knot is a good knot to learn. It allows you to put a no slip knot in the center of a rope. A bowline is a good knot to know as well but it is a dangerous knot in that if you use the loop you create to put other ropes through and put weight on it, it will pinch the rope like a cable brake.

For suspensions one should use many wraps of rope. Never put your body weight on one wrap, that will cut into you like a knife. Use two or three wraps at the least. In my opinion I would rather know a practitioner is going by what works for them rather than some abstract technique they have never thought about and explored for themselves.
