Tenyo once had a stiff rope supplied with their spinning plate effect, it was a superb gimmick.

Wouldn't it be more "suggestive" the other way around?


I had for the first time in my performance career, not one, but TWO co-ed bachelor/bachelorette parties on the same day this last week. Because of what you said, I actually decided break out my stiff rope and try it that way. I performed it the other way around, to very little reaction, at both parties. Deciding on the fly to try it the original way, when I went back to the rope allowing me to tie up the lady volunteers, I had people rolling in the aisles. Neither of these parties were overflowing with alcohol either - in fact, one was completely dry because that was just how they are (and they still know how to party!). I think I may just keep this routine around for these types of events if I ever get anymore of them...

I can see what you mean though: One would think it should work the other way around! Maybe changing the patter and the routine just slightly might make it work though...for that idea, I thank you!

And while we are on the subject of adult humor - I was watching a friend of mine perform at an 80th birthday party yesterday for a friend in common and oh boy, man alive - some of those elder folks just put everybody to shame when it comes to dirty jokes and humor...

What's the trick with the Bottle that gets stock on the rope? Anyway use a bottle of Viagra.

Question, what's with the couple at end of Cialis commercials sitting in individual bath tubs?

I think that is the Prayer Vase, sometimes called The Genie In A Bottle and other times the Rope Vase Trick.

I have often wondered about that myself...

The individual bath tubs are probably there for the same reason that Ricky & Lucy Ricardo and Rob & Laura Petrie had twin beds.

But that was back when it was taboo...

Yes, Dr Ayala, but in the context of the product being advertised, I think the taboo is probably still there . . . on the other hand, it may be a reflection of the phenomenon described in "Bowling Alone."

I've been working with a stiff rope gimmick, but I find it somewhat erratic in its behavior . . . do these things vary a lot, one from another?

Thanks.

They do vary from maker to maker, because it depends on the system (read: Modus Operandi) being employed and to some degree, the type and quality of rope sleeve used. Some are better than others, and there are some good quality versions out there. I use the Doug Edwards version called Rope Fantasy and the last time I checked, Elmwood Magic still carries it, and it sells somwhere in the range of $15/USD.

Thanks for the information, Doctor Ayala! I will give that one a try.

If it stays this way for over four hours I have to consult my doctor immediately.

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.

That would probably get a laugh!

By the way, "Rope Fantasy" is still OOS @ Elmwood Magic . . .

Did you put your e-mail address in for notification when it comes back in stock? Paul actually uses those e-mails when an item sells out to know what customers are expecting, so if not, revisit the site and look up Rope Fantasy, and then put your e-mail address in where it says "E-Mail me when this item is in stock;" you will get notification when it does arrive. If you have already done that, it will eventually return to stock. Hope this helps!

I did when your recommendation was made before . . . haven't received anything . . . and checked the site today, to be sure. Thanks for the suggestion, it is helpful.
