Safety First

Safety First

It was the most important Shibari exhibition in the area. Among the events, there was going to be a suspension contest. I wanted to win. I needed to win, no matter what. They always say: “safety first“, but this time I forgot about it. Shauna has been my bottom for the last three years. She’s…

Consequently, it is important to put safety as one of the top priorities when practicing Shibari. Safety involves three elements: risk awareness before the scene, precautions during the scene, and what…

Shibari and Responsibility Go Together

Shibari and Responsibility Go Together

I’ve known Lily for some time. She does Shibari for all the wrong reasons. Hers is not a search for art, but for revenge. She’s reckless when she’s tying, instead of keeping calm and focused. She doesn’t connect with bottoms, she abuses them. It was just a matter of time before she provoked some disaster.…

SSC

SSC

SSC stands for Safe, Sane, and Consensual. Those three words sum up the ethics of Shibari. Even though there are still many people who think according to the old taboo, for which Shibari in particular and BDSM in general is a perversion, that is, a sick and inadmissible deviation of sexuality, bondage practices become more…

Shibari and Responsibility

Shibari and Responsibility I hate the guy. I mean, I hate any guy who hurts women, but when damage comes from simple and plain irresponsibility, I get furious. He calls himself a photographer, he might as well be. But he also says he’s a rigger, and I know he’s lying. I mean, Shibari and responsibility…

Safety and Precautions for Rope Bondage

As we know, Rope Bondage is the practice of consensually tying, binding or restraining a partner for sexual or aesthetic reasons. It can be practiced by anyone, and it does not require a BDSM-oriented sexual identity to do it. Rope Bondage is appealing to people regardless of their sexual orientation. It seems very easy, but…
