Emotional Exchange

Shibari is a discipline that, due to its erotic nature, necessarily implies emotional exchange. It has become popular amongst women because it is the most artistic and delicate type of BDSM. This discipline is where you can safely explore your fantasies. For example, some women have the fantasy of someone dominating them in bed.

Letting Go of Inhibitions

Being tied up during a sexual interaction is a way to lose all control and, thus, your restrictions. That is, this action is not just about ropes or handcuffs being sexy: it is about the feeling and the possibility that the domination or punishment represents. Usually, females search for a male that can dominate them or have the control over them. And this occurs not only in sexual relationships, but also in life. This is also a part of women’s instinct—and the excitement that the male force and appearance reflects it.

In earlier times, it was very common for a woman to look for a strong and powerful man. These were important characteristics that demonstrated the (stereotypical) manhood of men. However, being tied has nothing to do with superiority or equity. It is just a sexual practice that can be very pleasant if both people agree and want to explore it. It is a way to let go inhibitions completely: as someone ties you up, the action removes all the prejudice that may exits.

Emotional Exchange: Rope Bondage

Rope bondage is communication, confidence, fear, excitement, relief, suspense, trust, and pleasure. The rigger ties you based on your reactions. Through the way they tie you up, you get to know their emotions and thoughts. In some instances, you might even feel that the person who is tying you is also controlling your emotions. By practicing shibari, you can experience different emotions; each will depend on the process of the scene you are experiencing. The extensive communication and emotions exchanged between shibari partners go beyond what you can imagine. You will always feel different after a scene: one will never equal another.

Experience the emotional exchange, enjoy it, and feel it.
