For those of you who like the more elegant things in life, Japanese rope bondage may be a sophisticated sexual sensation that is right up your street.
Known as Shibari (which literally translates as 'to bind'), Japanese rope bondage is a more accentuated and precise version of regular restraint. As a result, Shibari takes dedication, patience and imagination to make it work properly.
Even though it may seem more complicated than many 'Western' forms of bondage, by learning Shibari you will develop a beautiful skill that will lead to fantastic genital stimulation as well as a deeper sense of trust and a greater bond between you and your partner.
