This article is about a hogtie related to BDSM. For the general concept, see Hogtie.

In bondage, the hogtie is a position in which a submissive's wrists and ankles are fastened together behind his or her back using physical restraints such as rope or cuffs.

Some people derive erotic pleasure from being hogtied or putting a person in a prone submissive position; commonly the hogtie is used as part of sexual bondage play, and in association with other bondage equipment.

Definition[edit]

A stringent hogtie

Hogtie bondage requires the tying of all four limbs together behind a person's back. It typically involves connecting a person's wrists and ankles behind their back whilst lying face down using some form of physical restraints. It may also instead refer to the binding of arms and legs behind a person in some BDSM contexts.

A variation of the hogtie involves tying bound wrists to frogtied legs, providing the dominant easier access to the submissive's crotch for sexual play. The hogtie differs from the balltie, which involves tying the legs together in front of the person with the arms additionally in front or behind. They both differ from the spread eagle tie, which fully separates the arms and legs.

As with all bondage play, the free partner is regarded as being in the dominant or controlling position, while the tied partner is regarded as being sexually submissive, though in some play the tied partner may control the situation verbally.

Safety[edit]

The hogtie position places pressure on the abdomen of the tied person, which may created difficulty in breathing known as postural asphyxia.[1] Care should be taken to ensure the person being bound can breathe easily throughout all stages of play. This is particularly important if gags, collars or rope (near the neck) is used to create a more stringent tie. This risk is in addition to the normal risks of physical restraint and BDSM play.
