Shibari, The Art of Rope Bondage

Rope Shibari, bondage rope, BDSM, whatever you call it, the art of binding someone up in rope is known by many names and considered to be one of the most important skills in the BDSM community. But why? Well, as anyone who has been tied up with it can tell you, there’s something so sensual about having your body bound up in rope that even some people who don’t consider themselves into the more risqué side of sex find it to be a completely intoxicating experience.

What is Shibari?

In Japanese, shibari refers to the decorative or beautiful binding. Many of its practitioners in modern times consider it to be performance art or erotic bondage. Other names for shibari include Kinbaku (結縄), which literally translates as the beauty of tight binding. Kinbaku is often translated as the beauty of tight binding. This may be a better translation for practitioners who prefer to emphasize that it is an art form and erotic activity rather than sexual bondage.

History of Shibari

Shibari or Japanese rope bondage is an art form that has roots in martial arts and military strategy. With more than a thousand years of history behind it, there’s no denying that shibari has evolved into a beautiful form of art. While much associate rope bondage with kinky sex and BDSM practices, those who are familiar with its history know that shibari started out as a method to incapacitate opponents on battlefields or against attackers.
