Unexpected Master

Unexpected Master

Cindy was all the fun you could get in a small package! She was my roomie in college, and we instantly became friends. She was the kind of girl who spends an hour choosing the color of her nail polish, and then another hour studying a complex legal principle to turn in the best paper she could write. Nothing remotely related to the discovery of an unexpected master in Shibari.

She had a boyfriend named James, one of those quiet, shy guys whom you would expect to find in a library, but not at a club. I wondered how a total extrovert like Cindy had ended up with this quiet man, but they seemed to get along very well.

One afternoon, I had left our apartment to go to the movies with my boyfriend. Meanwhile, Cindy and James stayed home and, you know, “watched a movie”. It was a rainy day, and my boyfriend canceled at the last moment. So, I came back home all wet and feeling miserable.

It was raining so hard that Cindy and James didn’t hear me opening the door. My plan was to lock myself up in my room until they finished their business, and then share my anger with Cindy and probably have some ice cream.

However, when I walked by her room, I heard some strange noises. The door was half open, so I looked inside. I saw Cindy all tied up, and James telling her how beautiful she looked. I know I shouldn’t, but I thought it was the sexiest thing I had ever seen. The restraint, the vulnerability, the trust, it all seemed wonderful.

I did some research on the Internet, and I found out that particular kind of bondage was called Shibari. I also learned that it is rightfully an art. And I couldn’t wait to try it myself.

So, one day, while we were in class, I told Cindy I wasn’t feeling well, and came back to the house. I sent James a message from one of Cindy’s cell phones. When we arrived, I told him that we were alone, that I had seen them the other day, and that I wanted to try Shibari. At first, he refused. He thought it was like cheating on Cindy, but I convinced him that we were doing nothing wrong.

We agreed on a date for the next week, when Cindy would be visiting her parents. I bought some lingerie specially for the occasion. Truth is, I enjoyed the sexual tension between us. He was a little nervous, at first. But after a few minutes, he worked like a true artist.

It was the sexiest experience of my life. It was also very intense emotionally. At first, it was a little bit frightening, but then it was just like they say: a hug with ropes. I consider myself a Shibari bottom now, and James turned out to be my unexpected master.

This is my Shibari story.
