What is Bondage

shibari news

Bondage is one of the buzzwords in the world of sex. It became more popular since the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, in which the public interest in rope practices began growing and more couples than ever are engaging in everything that includes restraints to full time dominant/submissive relationships. In this article, you will find out what is bondage.

Bondage is an erotic practice based on the immobilization of the body of a person. You can tie a part of the body or all of it. For that purpose, you can use ropes, ribbons, cloth, chains, handcuffs or anything else that can serve as an immobilizer. The use of ropes has an aesthetic-erotic dimension, especially in the BDSM, domination or sadomasochism context.

Although the use of ropes has recently become popular, it has an ancestral origin in practices and games of domination, as well as a technique used in Japan called Hojojutsu, which was used to restrain, torture and transport slaves from one place to another.

Bondage is a sexual power game. In it, one partner takes on a dominant role while the other takes the submissive role. Tying, binding or restraining someone must be mutually consensual. Although Bondage might seem like rough sex, it is totally different, in fact, it can be very romantic. Rope play is not always rough at all and is often extremely slow and sensual. The only similarity between bondage and rough sex is that both practices require clear boundaries agreed upon before play.

Bondage became very popular in the past few years. It is popular for several reasons, people enjoy bondage, from the general feel-good factor of restriction to the element of power exchange. Bondage is also a way of strengthening the bond with your partner, it helps you reconnect with your body and sensuality as well as a bond of confidence and trust with your partner.
