Trying suspension at home sounds like a tempting idea for many couples. This comes as no surprise, since suspension is the most popular kind of Shibari scene. It can be a great experience for couples with a taste for bondage. However, it is important to follow some basic recommendations.
First of all, you need a space large enough to do the scene there. If you live in a small apartment, there is no way you can safely arrange the necessary equipment for a suspension scene. On the other hand, if you have a big garage or a wide living room, it is possible to do the scene there.
Before a suspension scene, you must do some hardware installations. Now, if the property isn’t yours, this might be a problem, since you’ll have to ask the landlord for permission. If you are the owner of the property, then it’s up to you to decide and go ahead with the installations. In any case, make sure to hire a professional. A pole falling down in the middle of a scene can lead to a serious emergency. Therefore, this is the kind of situation where the DIY approach just doesn’t work.
As for safety measures, there are no shortcuts. Quite the opposite, you must try not only to match but to surpass the standard safety measures of a regular Shibari studio. It might be quite expensive, but it is the price of taking good care of your partners and yourself.
As you can see, there are lots of things you have to take care of if you want to do a suspension at home. However, you’ll find later that it was all worth it. Doing suspensions at home allows you to develop the scene at your own pace. Moreover, there are no limits to your creativity. As for the aftercare, you’ll find that it works out a lot better at home.
