Shibari:The Japanese rope bondage we saw in “Too Hot to Handle”

The third dating reality of Netflix, was immediately in the first place of the top-10 with most people loving to hate it.

There were several reasons that made us angry, but we saw it. And watching it, we attended various workshops organized by the production, in order for its players to come closer emotionally. That was, after all, the deepest goal of the game.

One of them, then, was the workshop that included ropes and an ancient Japanese art of tying, the famous Shibari. Some may have heard it. Most, however, did not know it and started searching the internet for information about this strange sexual bond.

Shibari basically translates as “tie” or “tighten” and originates from Japan. The word originally described the tying of prisoners in medieval Japan. It was a tight and violent tying with a thick rope from top to bottom, with the result that the prisoner was in pain, but also did not have the slightest chance of being untied.

This tighten, however, over the years began to become famous in the Japanese love industry. During World War II, American soldiers saw it and transported it to the United States, where its popularity skyrocketed. Apparently the global porn industry also contributed to this. At the same time, there are versions, in which the person who is tied does not stay on the ground, but hangs from the ceiling.

There are several reasons why the Shibari technique arouses men and women erotically. It has to do with the ability of one to control the other. We have seen this many times. That is, we have someone who dominates and someone who dominates voluntarily, during the sexual act.

This game of power, however, also needs some rules. In other words, the couple must have defined a word of security in advance, which when the one who “surrenders” shouts, then the game stops. This way, everyone can have a good time without the situation becoming painful.
