shibari news

Self Bondage has become very popular in the last years. However, it is important that practitioners know the risks involved.

A simple problem of loss of circulation can easily deprive one of the dexterity to realize crucial ties. It can also lead to dropping a cutting implement out of reach. This situations can lead to total disaster. Some practitioners will tell you many anecdotes that could have ended tragically. It is very important to take the necessary precautions and try not to do it alone. It is always better if you have someone around that could help. At least, you should keep a telephone nearby, so you can ask for help if necessary.

In Self bondage, there can be problems derived from numbness or loss of mobility. If you have a problem practicing self-bondage alone where you can’t solve the problem or are likely to exhaust yourself in the process, things can get very serious quickly. Once you experience panic and pain, it is most likely to not find an obvious solution. Some positions can become stress positions in a short time and can lead to fatal position asphyxia. This is due to the stress that you are experiencing, which causes the muscles you use to breathe to become exhausted, and even choking from vomiting.

There are many accidents that can happen in a Shibari scene, normally with a partner the rigger can take you out of the problem, but if you are practising self-bondage, no one will be able to help you out. Without any other person, the stress, pain and fear, will lead to a fatal situation, where you won’t be able to solve the problem by yourself because you won’t be able to think out clearly and act at the same time. Remember the risks and be aware.
