What is Kinbaku

Kinbaku (shibari) is the centuries-old art of Japanese erotic rope bondage. Simply put, Kinbaku is the technique of safe, sensual, dramatic, and erotic bondage raised to a high art form in Japan. In Japanese the words Art, Japanese, Erotic, and Bondage have a multitude of meanings depending on who is speaking and who is listening. What is art to you? What do you find erotic? How does culture affect our perceptions? How does it feel to tie or be tied? How do you do it safely? These questions – and the answers to them – are why the study of kinbaku is so exciting. Each of these four elements plays a part and the most satisfying experiences hit on all of them.
