Discover the Shibari, or the ancestral art of bondage in the Japanese tradition

Shibari, or more commonly known as the art of Kinbaku bondage, is an ancient Japanese art. It was known in the most controversial circles of the country and was practiced only by the most curious people. This art exerts an unhealthy curiosity (or not) since it is an integral part of the BDSM category. It has a cultural interest (I suspect that you are not there for that) but also and above all an erotic and artistic attraction. Indeed, one can see circulating on the net several photographs and accounts dedicated to the practice of this mysterious, enigmatic art, both raw and subtle, erotic and sensual.

What is Shibari

The word Shibari means 'tying'. This art comes from the Japanese tradition and martial art which consisted in tying prisoners with specific knots according to their class, or their social status. It was popularized around the 1990s in the West. Concretely, it is a question of attaching and suspending another person (naked or not) in the air using several white and thick ropes, made of hemp most of the time. The movements of the attached person are therefore restricted, hindered, or even impossible, which will tend to sexually aroused people attracted to basic bondage, such as our escort girls. Today, Shibari is most often used for erotic, play, or aesthetic purposes. We tend to attribute shibari to purely sexual practice, or even to a very specific fetishism. So obviously, it's very connoted, since it's sort of a sub-genre of BDSM, which is very similar to bondage. Yet it is important to know that it can be non-sexual. It is even considered an art in its own right by rope specialists.

The codes of Shibari art, or why it's not (really) bondage

Shibari is above all a little-known and misunderstood art. Even if it is more and more democratized among those uninitiated in bondage (a bit like the practices of 50 shades of gray), it is still relatively unknown. Recently, a Netflix series called "High Tension Seduction" briefly brought up the Shibari. Why is it a misunderstood art? Because it's different from bondage. Where the latter uses all types of restrictions, ranging from handcuffs to ribbon, through headbands and belts, the Shibari is done exclusively with very specific ropes. And it is not only about the restriction, but also the overall aesthetic that results from it (one can feel pleasure in seeing oneself transformed into all kinds of positions of restraint). It also emphasizes emotion and psychology,

How to get started

As with all sexual experiences, it is necessary to establish consent first. Then, we will have to communicate on our limits, in a strict and framed way, even before starting the practice. With your partner, have a clear dialogue about the things that motivate you to start this experience, what you want to experience, what you don't want, what is tolerable, what is not, etc ... Communication is queen in the matter: it is the key to a fulfilling and pleasing experience! You can also think of a word (the safeword) to avoid certain overflows and that things go too far. Then you can use videos or even photos on the internet to explore your imagination, and jump right into the Shibari!

The Shibari experience

To help you, there are also small specialized studios (search according to the photos). Some specialist people can teach you how to practice Shibari well. You'll start by teaching you the basic knot, with clear instructions and a relaxed vibe. We will also tell you how important it is to concentrate on communication, what we want to communicate to our partner by the rope (domination, tenderness, admiration, etc…). Giving the other person the possibility of hindering their movements, can be anxiety-provoking for some people. And it means above all: having total confidence in your partner so that he respects your limits. And yes: not all positions are pleasant to undergo, and some are even painful (depending on your flexibility of course). Therefore,

Why practice Shibari? The magic of the fusion between hindrance and pleasure

In the beginning, communication will allow you to put the other in confidence. In the beginning, it allows you (or the other) to share their fears and to determine your own physical and psychological limits, to feel safe, and therefore to fully benefit from the experience ... But at some point, communication is no longer needed. Once the let goes complete, and that the partner attaching to the full powers, you will be able to feel an irrepressible desire to express yourself by the ropes. Your comforting gaze, or on the contrary burning with desire, will give your partner an extraordinary experience ... In the complete silence of your activity, the smallest details will make you shiver, and will drastically increase the temperature of the room! The other's breathing, his pulse racing when you approach slowly, his breath, the ropes that brush against his body, tighten him/her… An exhilarating activity! You will push your limits and those of your partner. It is above all a moment of sharing between you and your partner. For those who are interested in suspensions in the air, this requires a higher level, therefore a lot of practice (and more specialized teaching).
