Non-sexual Shibari

shibari news

Shibari has become very popular as an erotic practice. However, you can also practice a non-sexual Shibari. Shibari is now present in social media, the Internet, and even in art. Nowadays, it is very easy to get lessons, workshops, find rope events and rope bondage accessories, so Shibari is living its golden era.

Shibari appeared as an erotic practice, mostly in porn. However, tying as an erotic practice has become very popular. Bondage is now showing up as something artistic that you can find in museums, and even as a healing technique.

Even in artistic Shibari, the rigger and the bottom share feelings, emotions, and make a connection of trust. This doesn’t necessarily has to be sexual, although it usually is very intense.

Nowadays, Shibari has become asexual. Models frequently request not to be touched. Moreover, they are even talking and thinking about something else instead of enjoying the scene and connecting with the riggers. Although sexual interaction is not required in the scene, the connection between the rigger and the bottom is very important, the sensuality that Shibari, Kinbaku or Rope Bondage is about, the aesthetics, and the facial expression of the models, who are the ones who transmit the feeling of a Shibari scene to the public is the most beautiful thing about Shibari.
 
Whether you want to let yourself go further with someone or not depends entirely on you as to where you set your boundaries.  We must remember not to lose the essence of Shibari in whatever practice or form is performed in a scene. We must also accept that since the popularity of Shibari is on the rise, we normally tend to expand its art form and variations.

Now you know that you can also practice non-sexual Shibari.
