It is good to hire the services of a professional when you’re taking your first steps into bondage. After all, any scene involves risk, and, therefore, it is important to be guided by someone who has been through the same process many times. Unfortunately, there are many charlatans out there, promoting themselves as Kinbakushis and rope masters, while they lack the proper training and skills. That’s why in this article we focus on how to identify a professional rigger, so that you and your partner(s) have the best experience with your bondage scene.

First of all, a professional is a person who has reached a high level of skill. And, while there are natural talents, skill is usually the result of training and experience. So, don’t be afraid to ask for qualifications and a portfolio of past jobs. It’s the same we do with doctors and lawyers. Be sure that no true professional will feel upset by this kind of request.

Another important aspect to consider is how much attention they pay to safety. You can never take too many precautions when it comes to bondage. This doesn’t mean that people who focus on the beauty or sensuality of a scene are not true professionals. Shibari is essentially an art, and those elements are important. However, a true bondage professional will always care for the safety of all participants involved.

In the end, it all comes down to just how seriously they take their job. If the person you’re dealing with sounds and acts like a rope pornographer, it might be the best idea to look for somebody else. if, on the other hand, when you talk to that person, you feel like you’re dealing with an artist committed to the art of ropes, they’re probably the right person for you.

Skill, safety, and seriousness. Three “S”. Three factors that will guarantee the success of your scene.

Now you know how to identify a professional rigger.
