Radial nerve schemas I.

Important note: This post is not finished. I have also images of male, where I would like to draw humerus, deltoid and radial nerve.


I have draw this schemas, which could not be 100% exact. This for illustration and it is based on inspection of muscles of the models I tied. I did not have any medical scans to be exact for radial nerve location. This drawings was again good training for my memory and orientation. Do you know what? I had a problem to find how the humerus should look in this position, commonly with ulna bone. I find out, there is one good point to start with. In a normal position, that is the normal position where medical pictures are usual, your elbow is at back, your palm is open to forward of you. As painters are used to make their sketches, some of them start with joint having shape like a cube. This is exactly case of posterior side of elbow (elbow viewed from back). You see 3 points, like 3 vertexes of cube. The last vertex is invisible and is orientated upwards. Just imagine a cube on a back side of elbow. This is a good starting point.

Normally, the posterior side of humerus (and elbow) is located at back. In takate kote alias box tie position, you have it placed to side. That is cca 90° rotation. Remember, what we are viewing, it is posterior view. This is that we often see when we check the position of wraps on riggers photos.

However, when you tie takate kote, and you stay behind back of your bunny, you see the interior side of the arm (arm = brachium, lat.).




My estimation of Radial nerve on Esinem's body

With permission of Esinem I publish this scheme which I made based on the muscles visible on the photo.

Yet I add the original photo of Esinem:

What's new

1) Superkarada articles mistake.  I found a mistake in the articles, where I have written, that the upper cinches must be as tight as possible! Big sorry for that, there should be they must be free. I hope it was clear or at least confusing) from the text bellow (where I write make them free).

2) My new fresh experience to Superkarada v4, side ropes - there is not possible to use the munter hitch variation. I think it is not possible, so don't try this variant, it would make you problems. Not possible to get right tension on it. You need at least cca 2m of rope to have reserve from the middle of the rope.

3) In any complicated tie as Superkarada, pls make all cinches free. Middle wraps too tight (v4), if you make it tighter. The Superkarada is complicated at back, in two places where all ropes are crossing. Lower back and area of boola boola.

4) Some photos of Takate Kote and Superkarada v4 will come soon, mainly to my blog pseudo-shibari.

What kind of rope do you like?

I create new survey (1st survey up right), which is for people who buy rope for bondage. I am interested if do you like natural fiber in its natural state. It is fuzzy and somebody finds these ropes uncomfortable. Somebody likes the appearance (I do).

This survey is for me, because I would like to make ropes on demand (you say, what exactly you need, and I will do ropes for you = price exactly for your demand). Please contact me on my old email karada-shinju on gmail server ....

Yeah, and you can vote if you are logged onto google account using one of google's services.

My first 5mm rope, created from hemp

This is my hemp rope, which I have done from 3 strands. These two pieces have only 2 and 3 meters. They were fuzzy in natural state, but I had burned the fuzz so they look better now. I had also to wash them and try to get better look (however not washed on the photo).


When I measured it, first I thought it is 4mm, but when I washed it and dried, it looks like 5mm now. It is made from cca 2-2,5 mm cords.

I used different count of twist for those ropes. So one (at the bottom) is a little bit less tight, the second it slightly better.

Purpose of its creation is hair bondage.

I would like to make and sell ropes in future. The prices will be cheaper then in usual online shops. If you would like to buy some of my rope later (3 strands rope, jute or 4 strands rope/jute or any other natural fiber, you should tell me before. I don't own workshop so twisting I will do out (good weather needed), ordering material, burning, washing and drying, all takes days. I could do ropes for you if you pay some deposit to me.

I can start making a rope if you order at least 42 m of rope. If you yet would like to cut it, it would get 5,25 ropes 8m long (without ending knots).
