SPH SATURDAY IS CURRENTLY ONGOING!

History & Origins

Shibari/Kinbaku has evolved because of Japan’s tolerant religions and their attitudes about sexuality, its history and martial arts, its 250 years of self-imposed isolation from the West, it’s love of beauty, art, form, and pattern and the mysterious alchemy that connects all of these.

-Master K, “The Beauty of Kinbaku”

Enthusiasts from all over the world engage in Shibari for various reasons like: sex & BDSM, photography, performance art, relationship building, meditation & stress-relief, self-empowerment, and more.

References & Recommendations​

Shin Nawakiri’s book has a talks about the origin of Japanese rope bondage and is a great actionable read that lives up to the title’s promise: revealing the essence of Shibari.

This read offers insights on not just the physical or technical side of Shibari but the mental and emotional sides as well—very important aspects that most newbie practitioners tend to miss when first smitten by the art’s intricate techniques.

“This feature documentary ‘The Pleasure of Rope’ explores Kinbaku, the art of Japanese rope bondage. Director Bob Bentley goes backstage at events and also explores the secret erotic world of rope. For many, tying and being tied is obsessively compulsive. Intimate disclosures reveal rare insights in narratives that are surprising and at times disturbing.”
