Overview

Shibari.ph Saturdays (SPH Saturdays) are held every 1st Saturday of the month so that local bondage practitioners and curious audiences can comfortably tie, observe, or just hang out with friends!

Rope Munch (3-6PM)

Rope Munches are social gatherings for bondage enthusiasts held in a public place (i.e. a cafe). You can socialize with the other rope tops & bottoms, ask for advice, or request a background check on prospective partners!

Don’t forget to observe proper munch etiquette!

Rope Jam (7-11PM)

Rope Jams are casual practice sessions open to all levels. By default, rope jams do not come with lessons but you are invited to share in the space to tie with friends, watch others play, or just hang out in a warm, accepting, and kink-friendly environment. No nudity though!

If you want to watch actual bondage practitioners in a more relaxed non-performance-oriented setup, this is your chance.

Reminders:

  1. Always aim to be respectful, empathic, and inclusive.
  2. Always ask for explicit verbal consent before tying or touching a person or their property.
  3. These are open and public events, not a play party. Intimacy with your partners is welcome but kindly remain clothed during the event. 
  4. Do not harass other attendees by asking for their vanilla life details (i.e. real names, career, address, etc.). If they are comfortable sharing those details, they will.
  5. Alcohol and other intoxicating substances are strictly prohibited. 
  6. Rope jams are welcome to people of all skill levels but we reserve the right to intervene or send people out if they engage in what we deem to be excessively risky behavior.
  7. Persons who fail to comply with the requests of the organizers will be sent out, blacklisted, and reported to the rest of the local groups.

If you have any questions, email Dee at dee@shibari.ph.

Are you new to Shibari?

  • No rope yet? New attendees to the Rope Jam will receive one (1) piece of synthetic bondage rope!

If you are a Newbie, you may ask for a FREE introduction to Shibari where you will be introduced to Dee’s interpretation of Japanese style rope bondage as influenced by his teachers, partners, and experiences. 

Originally priced at Php 1500 per attendee, you can attend the lecture portion for free during our Rope Munch, and the hands on applications/lessons at no additional charge for those who’ve purchased tickets to our Rope Jam.

Returning attendees are welcome if you need a refresher.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dee Sapalo is a rope artist from Makati who promotes kink-, sex-, and body-positivity and practices a gentler domination style with Japanese rope bondage. He joined Manila’s rope scene in 2013 and has since pursued studies in Shibari locally and abroad.

Believing that our communities can become more respectful, empathic, and inclusive by practicing kink—he takes a break from designing websites for SMEs and runs the Shibari.ph resource blog. There, he curates relevant resources and hosts events where enthusiasts of all ages, genders, and body types can explore bondage in a safer, more supportive, and accepting environment.

You can message him to ask questions or say hello at dee@shibari.ph.

Solo attendees are welcome at the rope jam!

Please note: We can’t guarantee that another solo attendee will be available or willing to partner with you though.

We encourage sports, yoga, or any exercise attire as long as they aren’t too baggy. Bras with underwires are discouraged since chest-related bondage might give you a harder time breathing, deform the underwire, or accidentally poke/stab you.

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

CLOTHES: If you reckon you’ll perspire a lot, bring small towels and a change of clothes. Drinks are available for sale at the venue and there’s a dedicated comfort room where you can get changed too.

ROPE: At least one (1) piece of 8m long bondage rope (synthetic or jute are recommended) would be good to have. If you have none yet, you may borrow or buy synthetic rope from us on the day of the event.

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 for borrowing at the event but you can check out this resource when getting your own pair.

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.

As an added level of security, we won’t be allowing photographs to be taken by anyone other than the group’s official/authorized photographer.

They are specifically instructed to creatively crop personally identifiable features from view and, in cases where it’s unavoidable, to blur them long before publishing.

Exception: We might dedicate a photo-safe zone and allow pictures if all the attendees agree to it.

Maginhawa Street is foodie heaven, with options stretching farther than your eye can see.  The closest option available would be the restaurants at the 1st floor of the building where our munch and rope jam are held but if you find yourself craving something else, walking in either direction from the building presents you with more options.

We offer private coaching for couples and small groups in case you can’t attend the regularly scheduled workshops or if you need to keep your interest in kinks discreet.

If you have questions, shoot us an email at dee@shibari.ph or message us through the Shibari.ph Facebook Page!

Artists and struggling professionals are also welcome to apply.

Our Shibari.ph Saturdays are currently being hosted at the premises of The Performing Arts and Recreation Center (PARC) Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Filipino artists, based in San Juan City.

The venue is Google Maps-, Waze-, and Grab-friendly.

Need directions for traveling without a car? You can find commuting instructions here!

Starting October, we will be hosting our events along Maginhawa at Elite Aerial Arts, a pole, dance and aerial arts studio located in Quezon City.

This venue is also Google Maps-, Waze-, and Grab-friendly.

 

Attending as a pair/couple isn’t required but it comes highly recommended if you want to maximize the event.

Some of the exercises will require a partner and we can’t guarantee that another solo attendee will be available or willing to partner with you.

CLOTHES: If you reckon you’ll perspire a lot, bring small towels and a change of clothes. There’s a water dispenser for you to stay hydrated and a comfort room nearby where you can get changed too.

NOTES: Bring a pen and paper so you can take notes! You can ask us questions anytime throughout the workshop. 🙂

We’re happy to notice that attendees of our Shibari.ph events tend to be comfortable enough to not use codenames anymore. However, the Philippines still faces some stigma when it comes to the practice of activities under BDSM.

To protect your privacy, we highly encourage the use of code names and aliases during the workshops (especially if you plan to join the local kink community).

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.

Drinks and light snacks available near the venue so feel free to bring snacks for consumption (outside) or by having stuff delivered.

We offer private coaching for couples and small groups in case you can’t attend the regularly scheduled workshops or if you need to keep your interest in kinks discreet.
