How to start practicing Shibari with your partner

If you don’t know how to start practicing Shibari with your partner, read this post and find out. It will be worth it! Shibari is a type of BDSM practice, that requires a high level of trust and communication. It is especially intimate and emotionally binding.

If you want to practice Shibari with your partner, here are some tips.

Like any other new sexual experiences, before starting it is important to communicate your boundaries and limits. Remember that Shibari involves restraint and power dynamics. This means the bottom might not have the opportunity to express anything during the scene. Therefore, it is very important to express boundaries clearly beforehand. So it is very important to have a clear discussion before the scene about what you both want to experience, and how you will communicate if there is an issue during the scene.

A safeword is required to be used if the scene is going too far or if you are not feeling right, you can choose whatever word you want, just make sure you both are in the same channel. Once the boundaries are established, you will both need to learn the basics of Shibari including safety. Remember to have the material ready for the scene and don’t forget to have some safety sheers on hand in case you will need them.

Some of the questions you can ask your partner to understand what they are feeling during the scene are the following:

How will I know if you are enjoying it? 
What kind of mood or feelings do you want to have during the play? rough, tender, naughty, cared, soft?
How will I know if you are not enjoying it?

Communication between partners will lead you to a successful scene, you will just need to let it flow and enjoy it.

Now you know how to start practicing Shibari with your partner.
