The rope glossary focuses on different varieties of rope, shibari ties and knots. The Gorean glossry forcuses exclusively on terms used in John Norman's Gor series. They are, by no means, complete or all-encompassing, but are general selection of terms. Please note that some of the words and terms may be considered offensive.

Different sections of the site have additional, specialized glossaries, such the Gorean Glossary and Rope Play Glossary though all glossaries are linked here.
