Shibari - should i go back to it?

    Hello Kinky Kids,

    A few years ago when I was an active member of the BDSM scene I got quite good at the basic level of Shibari (Japenese rope tying)

    I didn't progress to the more complex suspension knots as I kind of fell out with the scene to an extent (hence I ended up here where I feel far happier :D).

    I think that the main reason I stopped with the Shibari was I simply couldn't find a rope bunny that I found suitable. (n)
    I need to feel both a physical attraction (sorry if that's not PC but at least it's the truth and not the Bullshit that a lot of Doms/Riggers/men in general, come out with) and a more difficult to define "connection" with my bunny to feel that it's worth investing the sort of time needed to become even competent at the higher levels.

    Don't get me wrong. If I tie you up you will definitely NOT be getting out of it. ;):cool:

    Anyway, today as I was reading and watching videos etc. to fuel my thirst for knowledge (NOBODY knows it all and I want to be the best Sensual Dom that I can be(y)) I came across a short tutorial in rope tying and its role in bondage.

    Well, it kind of stirred up some familiar feelings regarding using rope (and particularly the effect it can have on females) so I looked in my "box" and found a 30ft length of horrible dayglo nylon rope that's been in there for years (it was actually a prize given to me at an event I'd attended :cool:).
    It's never been used so I thought I'd have a go at tying a Double Column Tie just to see if I still had the knack.:rofl:

    I, obviously, couldn't tie my hands together so I went for my ankles instead (I've never tied my own ankles together before :lol:)
    Well. the technique came back to me as if it was yesterday.
    So, here's the first effort I've made in Shibari for over 5 years
    Ankles tied - Double Column Tie.jpg
    I was quite surprised and pleased ;)

    So, what did I do?

    I went and ordered 30ft of gorgeous red bondage rope of course. :palm:
    It's arriving tomorrow and I'm thinking it was a mistake to order it.
    I've not got the inclination to dedicate the time to become an expert at it and, more importantly, I'm not prepared to spend another goodness knows how many years searching for a suitable rope bunny.
    I suppose it'll end up like the other rope, stuck at the bottom of my box, forgotten by me unless I get a request to tie someone up.:sneaky:

    One more thing that's a curious coincidence is that literally a week or two ago I decided to retake the BDSM test as I was curious as to whether my focus had altered in the last 5 years or so.

    Well, the result quite surprised me.
    Here are the top 3 "interests" I have according to the test (which has to be taken with a pinch of salt of course.

    == Results from bdsmtest.org ==

    95% Rigger

    87% Exhibitionist

    86% Voyeur

    I must be honest I absolutely adore my leather restraints and stainless steel chains etc and wouldn't go back to using rope only but I admit there is something sexy and exciting about the occasional use of rope to bind a female. ;):cool::Ohyessir::devil:

    My apologies for the long post and congratulations to anyone that's managed to read through the whole lot.:mwah:

    I'm going back to work on my oil painting of a beautiful woman's fabulous backside now :grin:
    much love:love:

      Yes there is something alluring about the use of ropes, the patterns and visual excitement it can give.
      It's something I've been trying (tying!) on a very basic level for the last few months.. got to get in some more practice!
      Enjoy your painting ...

          Well, as promised, my new red Shibari rope arrived this morning. (y)

          I must admit it's very sexy :love:
          It's soft and red and full of promise (and so's the rope :whistle:)
          Just need a willing victim who'd enjoy being tied up, tied down and interfered with :lol:

            Hope you find your little rope bunny to play with

            I absolutely adore Shibari pics
            It takes time and patience but oh so pretty

            I'm sure there will be at least few ladies that would jump at chance

            Please don't feel bad my saying you need to be physically attracted to someone .... i think your perfectly right, for me There's gotta be chemistry and physical attraction in any sexual interaction

                            One of my favourite Shibari ties is the Pentagram (or Star) Harness. :love:

                            It looks at its best when worn by a sexy, big-breasted young woman. (y)

                            Sadly, I couldn't find on last night (I looked down the back of my sofa and everywhere):(

                            So I had a go at tying it on myself, not easy, but I think you get the idea of how it could look on the right model

                                      Here's another chest harness.
                                      This one's another simple tie that I think looks very effective (on the right person with the right body, ie: not mine :whistle:)

                                      I believe it's called a Hishi Karada Hishi meaning diamond and Karada meaning body. In English it's known, surprise, surprise as a diamond body harness :)

                                      I've tarted the picture up a bit to try and make it a bit more interesting :D
                                      Hishi (Diamond) Harness 350 pxls.jpg

                                      This diamond design can be used to make a harness for any part of the body. Diamonds can be joined together to cover large areas. It's surprising how much rope these ties can use. This one for example used up 10 metres which left me none to do anything further with it. I have however got another 10 metres arriving tomorrow so that will increase my possibilities.

                                      After removing the rope this time I decided to do a Karada crotch harness. I absolutely love both wearing and tying crotch harnesses. Soooo sexy. And they're brilliant for anyone with a slightly sagging bottom as you can tie it so that after passing the rope from front to back through the open legs (and I've got a little trick that can be done on that length of rope that's a real treat for the girlies ;)) and can then be tucked under the bum cheeks and lifted before being returned round the opposite side of the body. And there you have it, an instant bum lift, making your bottom look perkier than it has for a long time :lol:
                                      So after completing it I took a few pics. But, you'll never guess what!!
                                      I wasn't wearing any underwear. :eek:
                                      So, framed by my lovely ropework, is a rather smug looking cock. :palm:

                                      So in the interests of good taste and not wishing to upset or offend any lady members I suppose I'm left with two possibilities. Either I keep the said pictures firmly hidden out of sight or I could post them on this thread with a "censored" sign covering the part in question.
                                      Does spoil any reaming aesthetics a bit though. I'll have a think, :confused:
                                      have fun,

                                                Plenty of places sell it, try Amazon or any of the online sites. Just done a quick search and found a few places.

                                                Again lots of online info but I'd suggest looking up your local munch meetings as there is probably someone who can possibly teach you. Quite a few do specialist rope events as well.
