In Japanese bondage a crotch rope is tied in such a way as to rub against the genitals. The aim is to generate thoughts of sexual submission and excitement in the person thus tied. The same purpose may exist for Western-style bondage, which also uses them for anchorage when restraining a victim or support during suspension bondage or on a St. Andrew's cross.
A crotch rope may be used to hold in a dildo or butt plug. A tight crotch rope may dig painfully into a sensitive area. Attaching the rope to wrist bonds is a way to keep the captive's arms pressed against the back.
Crotch ropes appear regularly in the drawings of Robert Bishop.
