There’s something about rope that attractive to girls and doubly so with newbies. Whenever I ask what they’d like to try first their gaze always turns towards a nearby pile of rope. Athena had never been hogtied before so it seemed like a good place to start. Ten minutes later she could barely move. So when I told her to escape she gave a few tugs and gave up and looking expectantly at me. The misconception was quickly cleared up, however. As it might be an hour or more before I decided to free her she might as well try and get free anyway!
