Shibari in Halloween

Traditional Shibari is very respectable. No bondage enthusiast would deny or dismiss the centuries long tradition of rope bondage. Shibari, Kinbaku, and Hojojutsu are the foundations of bondage, and we still have a lot to learn from them. However, the current trend is to combine Shibari with other kinds of expressions, such as performance, photography, and many more. In my case, my girlfriend and I decided to do some Shibari in Halloween. It turned out in quite an unexpected way.

You see, my girlfriend can play both rigger and bottom. So, for this scene, she dressed up as some sort of evil spirit, and then tied me to the kitchen’s table. Above me, she put a knife hanging from a rope, and pointed straight to my heart. The idea for the scene was that she would light a candle that would slowly burn the rope holding the knife. She would make me suffer for a while, and then she would release me, to prevent the knife from hurting me.

She had just lighted the candle, when suddenly, she felt dizzy and fainted. Now, imagine my situation: I was tied, a knife was about to fall on my chest, and the only person who could rescue me was lying unconscious on the kitchen’s floor. I trusted that the knife wouldn’t fall hardly enough as to reach my heart, but it would certainly hurt me. I tried to release myself, but my girlfriend had tied me very well. So, it was useless.

The knife was about to fall on my chest, when, all of a sudden, my girlfriend got up from the floor, and took it away from me. Then, she laughed her ass off. When she recovered, she explained to me that she hadn’t fainted, that she had planned it that way all along. I tried to take it with humor and, eventually, I laughed at it, too.

This is our Shibari in Halloween story.
