Introduction

Shibari, the erotic art of Japanese rope bondage, is a visually striking, emotionally engaging, and creatively challenging practice enjoyed by people all over the world.

Whether you’re interested in bondage for sex, relaxation, sadomasochism, art (or simply bonding with your significant other/s), Japan’s unique style of rope play offers you exciting new perspectives on concepts like control, pleasure, and intimacy.

Join us on the weekends when we host events for adults of all ages, genders, and body types who want to explore bondage in a safer, supportive, and accepting environment.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, our events are temporarily limited to a maximum of 10 attendees.

What People Have To Say

Event Schedule

Every Saturday (Rope Jams + Free Intro)

1:00PM - 9:00PM (8 Hours)

Rope Jam Sessions are casual tying events that you can attend regardless of your experience or skill level. The event runs from 1-9pm but there’s no formal schedule or agenda so you can attend anytime! 

Attendees are free to practice together, run experiments, or simply watch other practitioners while they go about their rope play. Use this chance to meet new people and put your skills to use!

Bonus: If you are new to rope bondage or need a refresher, our Introduction to Shibari is free for Rope Jam attendees upon request (1-4pm).

Learning the Ropes: Introduction to Shibari will teach you a simple framework applicable to almost any style of rope play you enjoy.

From sultry and sensual tying to expressing one’s power exchange through ropes, this course will make sure you’ll never have to feel stuck with the same boring routine when you tie—nor feel pressured to keep learning new patterns just to spice things up!

We’ll cover topics like:

  • Traditional & Contemporary Practice
  • Safety & Consent
  • Tools & Maintenance
  • A Simple Session Framework
  • Basic Techniques & Applications

This event will be helpful if you ever found yourself asking:

  • Which types of ropes are okay to use for bondage play?
  • How many knots or techniques do I need to know?
  • Does bondage always have to be sadistic, naked, or complicated?
  • Can I still get tied if I’m not a thin/light/petite Japanese woman?
  • Are there parts of the body I shouldn’t be tying?
  • What’s the difference between nerve and circulation impingement?
  • How tight should my wraps/bondage ties actually be?
  • What are we supposed to be doing at the end of our sessions?

Complete beginners are welcome.

Every Sunday (Regular Training)

1:00PM - 9:00PM (8 HOURS)

Regular Training Sessions are educational events focused on upskilling rope tops and bottoms who have attended our Introduction to Shibari.

We’ll help you develop important skills in four (4) key areas: 

  • Function: How to Play with Bodies in Bondage
    (Body Mechanics, Manipulation, and Management)
  • Form: How to Tame and Troubleshoot Tension
    (Bondage Design, Development, and Delivery),

  • Flow: How to Focus and Flow with Your Partner
    (Self-, Error-, and Pain-Management)
  • Fluency: How to Touch Hearts and Tell Stories
    (Verbal, Non-Verbal, and Cooperative Communication)
To do so, we’ll teach you how to tie—and how to be tied in—our interpretation of one of the most iconic ties in Japanese rope bondage: the gote shibari (i.e. hands tied in the back).

If you have any questions or wish to avail of these as private classes, kindly email us at [email protected]

(Required: You must have attended our Introduction to Shibari or equivalent).

Frequently Asked Questions

If you only want to attend once, you could buy a Single Event Ticket. These will be available for sale starting on the 1st day of the event month.

If you are a regular attendee and you want a 20% discount, you could buy a Multi-Event Pass. These are only available before the event month starts.

As a bonus, if you get the Monthly Pass, you’ll also get a two (2) hour private tying or training session for free (worth Php5,000).

Attending with a partner is recommended but not required since you are welcome to partner with other solo attendees. 

In the future, we’ll be able to accommodate requests if you want to hire a professional rope partner for the class.

Sports, yoga, and exercise attire are common favorites since they’re not baggy and won’t get caught in the ropes so often. Bras with underwires however are specifically discouraged since chest-related bondage might make it harder to breathe, deform the underwire, or accidentally poke/stab you.

Attendees will need to stay clothed and masked during this event to comply with the safety guidelines for preventing COVID-19 infection.

CLOTHES: If you reckon you’ll perspire a lot, bring small towels and a change of clothes.

ROPE: Bring at least four (4) bondage-safe ropes that are 8-meters long and have a diameter that’s anywhere between 5-8mm thick. Natural fiber jute ropes are encouraged but not required. Synthetic ropes are okay.

If you have none yet, you may buy rope from our online shop.

EMT/SAFETY SHEARS: We use a special kind of scissors for bondage—the kind used by paramedics for emergency situations which have a blunt tip. We’ll have several shears available during the event but you are encouraged to get your own pair.

MEDICATION: Please remember to bring medication if you need any— especially for emergencies (asthma inhalers, insulin, etc.).

YOGA MAT: Unless you’re fine with the uncovered floor, you may want to bring a yoga or exercise mat so that you (or your partner) will have something comfortable to sit or lie on the floor with!

You can browse our selection of natural fiber ropes (jute ropes/asanawa) and synthetic fiber ropes (polypropylene ropes) in our online store.

Attendees of Shibari.ph events tend to be comfortable enough to use their real names. However, we highly encourage the use of code names and aliases during the events so that you have a layer of defense against people who might have malicious intentions.

Note: Anyone caught harassing other attendees for personal details will be reprimanded or sent out. Repeat offenders will be blacklisted from future events and reported to the other local kink groups.

Photographs are only allowed during our events if all attendees who will be part of the shot are consenting. We may dedicate a photo-safe zone where photo-taking is allowed.

No worries! Accidents, emergencies, and changed minds happen. Cancellations are free until seven (7) days before the scheduled event. After that period, we will need to bill you 75% of the scheduled appointment’s fee as a cancellation fee. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at [email protected]

Event Guidelines:

  1. Choose a kinky codename or alias if you need to protect your identity!
  2. Please wear comfortable, non-baggy clothes.
  3. Please refrain from imbibing alcohol or other intoxicating substances that affect your judgment and motor function before and during the appointment.
  4. This event is open to people of all skill levels and backgrounds but we reserve the right to interrupt or end the scene if you engage in what we personally deem as excessively risky behavior.
  5. Attendees are expected to observe physical distancing with people who aren’t their partner and to wear their masks at all times except for medical reasons.
  6. Photography is only allowed at  (a) certain photo-safe zones or (b) with the consent of all who are captured in the frame (even if the face isn’t included). 

Note: Those who fail to observe these guidelines will be added to our flagged list which is shared with the other local kink groups.
