Shibari as an Aphrodisiac

Shibari is not necessarily sexual. It can be a form of art, an act of intimacy, a therapy, the expression of a power dynamic, and, of course, a form of sexual intimacy. You can use Shibari as an aphrodisiac either as a form of foreplay or during intercourse. In either case, you can be sure that it will open the doors to new levels of pleasure and satisfaction.

Many people use bondage during foreplay. However, they rarely go beyond tying the hands or restraining the feet. For the full rush of dopamine associated with restraint, you can try more elaborate knots and positions. For example, the leapfrog bondage position, in which the person is facing down and the hip raised, can skyrocket excitement. This will provide an excellent starting point for intercourse. The futomomo knot, tying the thigh to the ankle, also provides an interesting perspective for the following steps in intercourse.

Shibari plus a sex swing can result in an interesting combination for a bedroom session. Instead of just sitting on it, Shibari provides the clues for a more creative use of the artifact. On the opposite direction, however, you can forget about complicated devices and simply use a rope to stimulate the erogenous zones of your partner (or partners) through carefully calculated friction.

Although not strictly Shibari, but related to bondage, bounding and gagging can also turn out quite stimulating for some people. This is because they share the explosiveness of restraint with the art of bondage.

In any case, remember to always ask for previous consent, and don’t be afraid to be creative and experiment until you find the right contribution of bondage for your specific case. Likewise, remember that hygiene, especially with the ropes, is always necessary. Whomever you share your sheets with will appreciate it.

As you can see, it is not a bad idea to try Shibari as an aphrodisiac the next times things get steamy.
