think tug-of-war...you're gripping the rope with your bare hands. in order to keep the rope from slipping you have to clamp down on the rope really hard. if you were to wrap the rope around your leading hand, the loop tightens around that leading hand meaning that you won't need to clamp down on the rope nearly as hard with your trailing hand to keep the rope from slipping. try it out and you'll see.
