I am sharing something each day covering the alphabet until I reach Z! Here we are at day 10! I am sharing topics having to do with sex, BDSM and/or kink. These topics are of things I am curious to learn about, love to know more about or just love to share.
If you have anything to add or have something else in that alphabet letter to share, please do so in the comments below.
Today’s sexy letter of the alphabet is:
J: Japanese Bondage :
Wikipedia – Kinbaku is a Japanese style of bondage or BDSM which involves tying a person up using simple yet visually intricate patterns, usually with several pieces of thin rope (often jute, hemp or linen and generally around 6 mm in diameter, but sometimes as small as 4 mm, and between 7–8 m long). In Japanese, this natural-fibre rope is known as asanawa (麻縄); the Japanese vocabulary does not make a distinction between hemp and jute. The allusion is to the use of hemp rope for restraining prisoners, as a symbol of power, in the same way that stocks or manacles are used in a WesternBDSM context. The word shibari came into common use in the West at some point in the 1990s to describe the bondage art Kinbaku.
*Kinbaku (緊縛) means “tight binding,” while Kinbaku-bi (緊縛美) literally means “the beauty of tight binding.”
*Shibari (縛り) is a Japanese word that literally means “to tie decoratively”.
Kinkly – Japanese rope bondage is a style of bondage using ropes and intricate knots. It is called Japanese rope bondage because it has deep roots in Japanese history. It is often featured in Japanese fetish pornography and hentai. Natural hemp and jute are the most common types of rope used during Japanese rope bondage.
Besides being very effective, true Japanese rope bondage should also be very beautiful. It often involves using several layers of rope and very intricate knots. It’s not uncommon for it to take a devoted person several hours to complete one session from start to finish.
I personally have experienced a simple bit of shibari during a scene. It was thrilling because I had never experienced it before and very freeing since once you are bound with the rope, there is no moving from the bondage. And then once the rope is removed, there are pretty lines and designs from the rope.
This was one of the recent things (in the last two years) I had become interested in once I had heard about it. I think because of the intricate way it is done and the beauty once it is accomplished. Then there is the feeling you have of being completely out of control because there is no moving or getting out of it. You are completely in your partner’s control.
I have also enjoyed watching as another person has been covered in the rope bondage and suspended. It was amazing!
What is your take on Japanese Rope Bondage? Have you ever experienced it? I would love to know more!
