Shibari and Instagram

Shibari and Instagram

I would have never done it, but she asked me to. And I just can’t say no to her. I like to keep things for myself, especially the things that happen when we are alone, but she’s a few years younger and she firmly believes we should share our joy with the world. Who can blame her? That’s why I ended up discovering the relation between Shibari and Instagram.

I know things have evolved a lot, but I still feel uncomfortable sometimes. More than once, I have introduced her as a friend, instead of saying that she is my girlfriend. “We’re lesbians and she’s my girlfriend” is something I still struggle to say, no matter how open-minded or tolerant the people to whom I’m talking to may seem.

And it gets worse. “We’re lesbians, she’s my girlfriend, and I enjoy tying her up and then hanging her just to contemplate how beautiful she is. She’s a wonderful bottom and, once the scene is done, I untie her slowly and take her to bed for a session of intense, but gentle aftercare.

And yet, she convinced me to do it.

She opened an Instagram account and she introduced me as an artist. I had never thought of myself as an artist before; it’s not like I paint or anything like that. And she uploaded some of the best photographs of my “work.”

It was unbelievable! In a couple of weeks, we had hundreds of fans. I thought it was because she’s so beautiful and appears barely dressed in most of the photographs—I like to show her delicious skin. However, it turned out that most of our followers wanted to know more about the artist! I had always kept a low profile, you know, just in case. So, receiving such a level of attention was, at first, overwhelming for me. However, she taught me to answer all questions with clarity and a bit of humor. Now, we enjoy together the combination of Shibari and Instagram.

This is my Shibari story.
