Q:

What is Shibari and how can I learn how to do it?

A: Shibari is a particularly creative, artistic and, to many, a highly attractive form of bondage. In Shibari, rope is used to create harnesses around parts of the body or the body in entirety, binding the subject and preventing partial or full freedom of movement. Shibari originated in Japan and it takes some practice to perfect. The end results are well worth your research time, however, for both the binder and the one being bound.

Is is a source of ongoing frustration even within the BDSM community that information and knowledge of Shibari bondage is not widely available. As rope bondage is best demonstrated with a real person, literary and visual media have found it difficult to recreate the educational steps.

There are a few gems out there in book form, however. If you’re interested in learning more about the origins of Shibari bondage and how to practice it, you would do well to take a look at "Two Knotty Boys Showing You the Ropes", or "The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage."

Also, when you buy good-quality bondage rope from adult retailers, there are usually a few basic Shibari knot forms and harnesses demonstrated with diagrams on an accompanying leaflet.
If you’re planning on attending a BDSM munch or other fetish gathering, you can probably meet a rope specialist there as well. Make a note of any Shibari or rope bondage sessions at your nearest BDSM munch, which you can locate through fetish websites and noticeboards online.
