What is Shibari?

Shibari (also known as Kinbaku) is the Japanese art of rope bondage that draws its roots from Hojojutsu—an ancient martial art used by traditional law enforcement for capturing and restraining captives.

Today, Shibari is practiced all over the world by people from various backgrounds for different reasons including art, stress-relief, relationship building, sexual expression, and BDSM.
