Shibari for the Shadow

You know what the shadow is? The shadow is what you keep repressed because it’s too dangerous. The things that you cannot admit it even to yourself are part of the shadow. Anything that hurts too much to be spoken is part of the shadow. Anyway, that’s what Jungian psychology says about the shadow, more or less. And that’s why Nikky and I practice Shibari for the shadow.

You see, the problem with the shadow is that it is too dangerous to keep it locked within you. But, on the other hand, if you keep it for yourself, it will destroy you from the inside. So, you can’t keep it in, and you can’t pull it out. To make things worse, Jung didn’t say anything about how the fuck you can manage to solve this situation.

Now, Nikki and I know about keeping things in the shadow. People are more open-minded nowadays, no doubt about it, but the idea of a couple of lesbian accountants who spend hours making a perfect balance sheet for your company and then fuck each other’s brains out might still be disturbing for some of our clients. We have to be professional, correct, precise, and preferably asexual.

So, from time to time we release the beast and lock ourselves up in a Shibari studio for a whole weekend. The only rule four our sessions is acting without inhibitions, not giving a fuck about what would anyone think about what we do. Whatever happens when we embrace our shadows stays there. And that’s why I won’t tell you anything about the indescribable pleasure that lies beneath pain, or the delirious of reaching peak after peak. You’ll have to find out by yourself.

All I can say is that you have to release the shadow from time to time. And, if you do it with ropes it is all much more fun!

This is how we do Shibari for the shadow.
