Featured Fetish: Shibari


Shibari has way too many beautiful extensions for me to depict, really. It's broadly classified as Japanese rope bondage. After that there are endless styles and techniques that can be used.

I didn't go with a full suspension pic here because I thought that could be used as a whole other fetish but I liked the idea of adding a little hair bondage in.
I admit I didn't show the beautiful and complicated rope and knot-work that shibari experts master but it's not my specialty. I went with a very basic expression of the art.

Rope bondage is a great tool with so much variety. Because it can be time consuming it's usually utilized for art more than utility, though it's fantastic for both. :)

Bet you guys have missed the Featured Fetishes! I'm back on board with them and looking forward to getting back in the swing.

Nicely done! I also like that the hair tie shows the nape of the neck, one of my favorite parts of a woman's body.

As a bondage lover - and by turn a shibari fan - I am especially squeeing at the choice of purple hair (my color of choice; oh that science could let you grow it that way!). If only I could put a print up in my fun room. ;)

Can this be bought as a print?

Nic said...

Unfortunately I don't have it as a print...
But since you guys are expressing interest I could get some worked up!
I'll get back to you guys about it. :)

Shibari is complicated as a reality, I can only imagine trying to do it in this medium, well done. A bit of a funny story. Last year my son went to an anime convention here in Seattle and when my wife and I picked him up I asked him how it was. He said fine, and that the one thing he enjoyed was the Shibari demonstration. I almost drove off the road I was so shocked. OK, he was 20, but still, and to top it off my wife was taking a drink and almost snorted it out her nose.

I actually, being a huge fan of japan, and freshly discovering my BDSM side, was THRILLED when I learned of this a few years back!
But god was learning all I could and then actually be abl to DO it a pain in the ass.
and NOT in the good way!

Also @Bill up there, we have a Shibari panel every year at my favorite convention in Detroit, Youmacon, my roomate almost did the SAME thing when I mentioned it on the car trip home! XD

ah shibari, a good fetish, not particularly into it myself but i know quite a few that are. beautiful work nic! though i still suggest a part to the site where FF will be linked to by name, which will make them far easier to find. ((i've currently won 2 bets thanks to your featured fetishes ^_^))

Nic said...

Hah!!! Love that you're winning bets off of me, Model. :P
And yes, I remember your suggestion and I still have it in mind. Just been busy, as per my usual. I am trying to get it in da works. :)
