Updated: Apr 29

Maybe you have asked yourself, why are people into shibari? What motivates them? Here is a list of why people practice the Japanese art of rope bondage. Maybe you discover yourself in some aspects.

  • Connection: Shibari is a way for people to connect with their partner on a deeper level. The act of tying someone up can create a feeling of trust and intimacy between the two people involved. Shibari is not just about the physical act of tying someone, but also about the emotional connection.

  • Presence & mindfulness: Shibari requires a lot of concentration and focus. The person tying must be present in the moment. For both partners, this can be a form of meditation that can help calming the nervous system and becoming fully aware of every breath and movement.

  • Body awareness: Shibari requires a deep understanding of the human body. In a shibari session, the person being tied can experience a completely new feeling of physical sensations.

  • Getting high: Some people get a big energy rush from the a huge cocktail of hormones, which are released during a session. Endorphine, dopamine, serotonin, adrenalin and oxytosine are released into the system through touch, pain and comforting connection.

  • Artistic expression: Shibari is a form of artistic expression. The ties used in Shibari can create visually stunning designs that can be appreciated for their beauty. Some people love to create beautiful body shapes in suspensions.

  • Self-exploration: Shibari can be a way for people to explore their own sexuality and desires in a safe and consensual way. It can be a way to push boundaries and discover new things about oneself.

  • Healing: Shibari can be used as a form of therapy for people who have experienced trauma. The act of being tied up in a safe and consensual way can create a feeling of safety and security that can be healing for some people.

In conclusion, Shibari is a beautiful art form that has many benefits beyond the physical act of tying someone up. It can be a way for people to connect with their partner, improve body awareness, express themselves artistically, explore their own sexuality, find natural places of bliss and ecstasy, and even be a form of therapy for some. Shibari is a safe and consensual tool to explore oneself and connect with others on a deeper level.
