Shibari: a Japanese art

Shibari, also known as Kinbaku, is a Japanese erotic art form that combines aesthetics, intimacy and connection. Literally translated as "to tie" or "to bind", Shibari has its roots in the traditional methods of restraint used by samurai in feudal Japan. Over the centuries, however, the practice has evolved into a refined expression of art and sensuality.

In the modern world, Shibari goes beyond the simple boundaries of bondage to become a complex dance between two partners, a rope weaver and a model, where every knot and every twist tells a story of trust, vulnerability and power. This practice invites you to explore the limits of your body and mind, while forging a deep and unique connection with your partner.

Shibari, while having distinct roots and its own aesthetic, shares many commonalities with BDSM, often forming a sub-category within this broader practice.

Like BDSM, Shibari is based on fundamental principles of consent, communication and trust between partners. Both disciplines explore power dynamics, control and vulnerability, providing participants with deep and intense experiences. While BDSM can include a variety of practices and materials, Shibari is distinguished by its specific use of ropes and emphasis on the visual aesthetics of bonds and positions. This erotic art form, with its intricate patterns and carefully crafted knots, allows for a unique exploration of sensation and emotion, creating a space where pain and pleasure mingle in a poetic and often therapeutic way. So, although distinct in its methods, Shibari fits harmoniously into the world of BDSM, offering yet another avenue for the expression of sensuality and creativity.

Today, Shibari is gaining in popularity and attracting the attention of people not necessarily in the BDSM community. It's now possible to learn more about shibari through online videos, but also at group classes where participants can learn rope-tying skills.
