Shibari without Ropes

Shibari is risky. From the friction produced by the ropes to the risk of nerve damage, it is a practice where many things can go wrong. On the other hand, bondage is one of the most preferred and accepted kinks. Even many people who are not into BDSM like the idea of bondage and restraint. So, if you don’t want to spend many hours in a workshop learning how to practice bondage safely, but you still want to delve into the world of restraint, there is a solution for you: Shibari without ropes.

Even though at first it might sound like a contradiction, Shibari without ropes is a real possibility. After all, you must remember that the key of Shibari is the idea of restraint. Restraint is the essence of Hojojutsu, the ancient martial art practice of restraint and torture from which Shibari came from.

So, once we have established the possibility of Shibari without ropes, it is important to mention the alternative materials you can use for your scenes and sessions. Plastic wrap is easy to get. It is transparent, something which adds a special touch if the bottom is naked, and it is not costly. The only thing is to make sure it is not plastic wrap for food. That kind of wrap causes people to sweat. 

Another option is bondage tape, which is made of latex, and can be found in several sizes and colors. Bondage tape does not use glue, so it’s very comfortable and easy to clean. The bottom will appreciate your choice during the aftercare. 

Some beginners use duct tape for their bondage scenes. However, this is a serious mistake and you should never try it. Duct tape can damage the skin and leave glue residues, which are very uncomfortable and not always easy to wash away. 

Now you know how to do Shibari without ropes.
