What is Shibari?

Shibari (also known as Kinbaku) is the erotic art of Japanese rope bondage. It drew its roots from an ancient rope-based martial art used by Japan’s traditional law enforcement which blossomed into a love language and aesthetic expression of Japan’s S/M culture.

Today, Japanese style rope bondage inspired by Shibari is practiced all over the world for different reasons—from sexual expression & BDSM to art, photography, meditation, and self-discovery.
