Considerations for Being Tied

This article discusses some important things to keep in mind if you're going to be tied during a Shibari session. It's important to understand that while Shibari can be a lot of fun, it does carry some risks. When you're being tied, you're trusting the person tying you, so it's crucial to have a good connection with them and to feel comfortable placing your safety in their hands.

Before the session, it's important to take some time to get to know yourself and your physical and emotional limitations. It's also essential to communicate these things freely with your partner. For example, if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a sprained ankle, or if a particular tie triggers a strong emotional response, you want your partner to know about it beforehand. Being honest and open about these things is critical for your safety during the Shibari session.

As the person being tied, there are three general things you should discuss with your partner ahead of time. First, talk about what you're hoping to get out of the session and which ties you'd like to try. Second, discuss what you're willing to try even if you're not particularly excited about it. And third, make it clear what you're not comfortable doing under any circumstances. By communicating these points clearly with your partner, you can help ensure that everyone is on the same page and that the session will be as safe and enjoyable as possible.

It's also essential to prepare yourself physically and mentally for the session. In your free time, you may want to work on your strength and flexibility to help you enjoy the session more. Before the Shibari session, make sure to warm up and do some stretches.

During the session, it's important to remember that your safety is your responsibility too. You should be aware of the tightness of the ropes, and if they feel too tight or uncomfortable, don't hesitate to speak up. You should also be mindful of the ropes' placement and how they affect your nerves. If something doesn't feel right, tell your partner immediately, so they can adjust the ropes before the problem becomes worse.

Finally, if your partner is inexperienced, be aware that the ends of the ropes might fly around during the tying process. It's a good idea to cover your face or avoid watching them tie you to reduce the risk of injury.

Above all, remember to have fun and enjoy your Shibari experience!
