Drawing by Robert Bishop showing a girl in a predicament bondage pose

Predicament bondage is the art of restraining a captive in such a way that there is a limited number of positions that they can adopt (usually two). Each of these positions is so uncomfortable or even painful that they will shift their weight or position. Upon doing so, they place themselves in the other equally uncomfortable position. The captive will try over and over again to find a position that will bring them comfort, but to no avail.

For example, someone may be tied so that they are forced to stand on tiptoes. An attempt to stand with feet flat on the ground means that their genitals, which are also tightly bound, will be slowly pulled. Eventually, the foot muscles will tire, and they will no longer be able to stand on tiptoe.

A very mild form of predicament bondage is to make someone wear a very tight corset and uncomfortable shoes. If they stand up, their feet hurt; if they sit down, the corset gets more uncomfortable.

This type of bondage is used in BDSM and power exchange play.

Safety issues

There can be safety issues with predicament bondage. The captor not only needs to consider the mechanics of the predicament that they are placing their captive in, but also what will happen should the captive faint or become too weak to support themselves. Specifically, the captive needs to consider how to release the captive unaided should they faint and if they faint or are unable to support themselves will they cause injury to themselves.
