Hogties - with spread-eagle ties as a close second - are pretty much the most common bondage position. They're prevalent enough that it's easy to find videos on YouTube of straight guys ganging up on a friend to forcibly hogtie him. Unfortunately, because it's such a common position, not many people take the time to consider the options when it comes to the position.While it is a pretty simple position, how you tie a boy's wrists and ankles can have a huge impact on how the position affects him, so we'll look at each separately:
Ankles - there are also three different ways to tie ankles: crossed, parallel, or each tied/strapped to its respective thigh. If you tie a guy's ankles crossed, it limits his ability to bring his knees together. This can be useful if you want him flipped on his side so he can't protect his cock/balls. It can also make it more difficult for him to roll himself over since it broadens his base, and you can also pull his cock down into the opening between his legs when he's on his stomach. Tying his ankles parallel can help make him into a smaller, tighter package, but it's slightly less versatile since the legs have no room to move whatsoever. My personal favorite is having my ankles tied to my thighs. This method is the most versatile of the three, since you can always add more rope to get them like you want, whether it's tying them together afterwards or tying them apart to the sides of the bed. It's also worth noting this variant is best-suited for if you also want to have a boy kneel for more than a moment while he's hogtied.
