Shibari You Can Use: Japanese Rope Bondage and Erotic Macramé (Paperback)
A primer for the sexually adventurous, presenting bedroom bondage in detailed, tasteful tutorials
Japanese-style rope bondage and erotic macramé may look complicated and intimidating, but you can learn the basics of this beautiful, sexy art form today. Bondage artist and educator Lee Harrington takes you step by step through a variety of concepts and ties, giving you the tools to make aesthetically rewarding ropework. Each tutorial is broken down into easy-to-follow photographs by RiggerJay with detailed descriptions of each step, including how to tie all those knots. From restrictive poses that limit movement to decorative rope that accentuates the human form, Shibari You Can Use includes instruction on creating Shinju (chest harnesses), Gyaku Ebi (Asian-style hogtie), Ebi or Kuri (shrimp or ball ties), rope corsets, strap-on harnesses and crotch ropes, and much more. How do you discuss your desires? What if you feel silly the first time? Where do you turn if you’re experienced and need new ideas? What about rope care? Open up the pages of Shibari You Can Use to find answers to these and other questions. Pick up this book, shake off your fears about tying someone up, and get some rope, and you too can learn Japanese-style rope bondage and erotic macramé.
