Communication in Shibari

shibari news

Communication is the act of transferring information from one place, person or group to another. Good communication skills are important. Communication in Shibari is essential because rigger and bottom must enjoy the experience together.

Communication is the key to every bondage or Shibari experience. Communicate before, during and after a scene. For communicating in a bondage or Shibari session, you can use both verbal and non-verbal communication.

Some points you should take into count for communication in Shibari are the following:

Before the scene, it is important to inform your rigger of any health problems before rope bondage, like any breathing conditions, heart conditions, circulation and nerve damage problems, physiological or emotional problems that might be significant to your rope experience or anything else that may interfere or increase the risk of the Shibari scene.

During a scene, it is important to communicate, either verbally or non-verbally. You need to communicate how the bondage feels, if it is stressful, if you are enjoying it, if you are having pleasure, if you feel a pinch from the rope it is very important to let your rigger know. If you communicate this, your rigger will be able to fix it and avoid any problems. If you communicate on time with your rigger, they will be able to react on time and solve the problem.

After the scene, it is also important to communicate and give feedback on the scene. You can share your experience, how you felt emotionally and physically, and if you didn’t like something it is the time to say it. This will help your rigger improve their own skill and awareness and will also help you grow as a bottom.
