Bondage

What is Bondage?

Bondage (from the homonymous French and English term meaning slavery or captivity) is an erotic practice based on the immobilization of a person’s body.

It is something that was known since ancient Japan, this sexual technique was reserved for the highest and most refined social classes.

The ties can be made on a part of the body or in its entirety, using ropes, tapes, fabrics, chains, handcuffs or any other element that can serve as an immobilizer. Within the framework of Bondage practices, gags or sensitive privators can be used as blindfolds.

Bondage is also considered an aesthetic-erotic practice. It is usually inscribed in the context of BDSM, domination or sadomasochism, as one more sexual praxis or as a ritual element in ceremonies of spiritual elevation through sexual ecstasy produced by immobilization or suspension.

SHIBARI AND KINBAKU

First, the word “shibari” 縛り comes from the Japanese translation of the verb “atar”. This verb is used in everyday contexts that have nothing to do with SM or erotic issues.

Everything to do with strings (nawa 縄) and ties (shibari) have a strong implication within Japanese culture involving its history, religion, traditional theater, martial arts, and even its particular and deep sense of honor and sacredness.

This same word, used within an SM context, could be taken as a synonym for the word “Kinbaku” 緊縛 , although it is not the same to tie your shoes (Shibari 縛り), as the experience of tying someone for the purpose of provoking different and particular sensations, such as pleasure or shame.

Recommendations

Having alternative practices such as bondage, without having studied can be highly dangerous.

For the same reason, I make a call to be well informed, from good sources (beyond a novel or a film) and on the other hand, in case of wanting to practice immobilization in sexuality, to pay close attention to the elements that are used as handcuffs, chains, ropes etc., that is to say, that they are of good quality and that do not represent any risk for the health or for the life of a person. For the same reason, I recommend that the purchase be made in specialized and serious stores.

IMPORTANT: The neck is forbidden. Never tie by the neck.
