What is a shibari bondage ring? 

Mostly used as an accessory to the ancient art form of Shibari suspension or Kinbaku suspension, a Shibari ring is used as an anchor or base for your rope suspension set-up. Use the ring as a central location to tether your unique configuration of knotted ropes, and connect by rope or chain to an overhead ceiling anchor or suspension frame.

How to tie off a suspension ring for rope bondage? 

The ancient art form of Shibari or Kinbaku should be practised with adequate training. Alluding to the restraint of prisoners using rope, symbolising power, this Japanese style of decorative BDSM bondage involves tying someone up using pieces of rope to create intricate and aesthetically pleasing knots. 

If the ropes break due to weak knots, weight or friction, your rope partner could suffer serious injuries. As such, Shibari requires skill, dedication and practice. If you’re a beginner, you should practice tying off a suspension ring before engaging in actual Shibari with your rope partner.

To tie off a suspension ring for rope bondage, follow these steps:

  1. The Running Overhand Knot
    Take a rope, bend it in half and tie it to a suspension point. Now pass both ends of the rope through the ring from behind, take them around the ropes, then over themselves and tie a knot as shown in the video. Pull and tighten the ends of the rope and the running overhand knot is done.

  2. Spiral Half Hitching
    After completing the Running Overhand Knot, bring the 2 cords of rope to the left from behind and form a loop. Pass both ends of the ropes through the loop, pull and tighten. Repeat multiple times until you form a beautiful spiral pattern.

Safety measures for suspension bondage 

Both the suspension rigger and the restrained partner have to take safety precautions. An improper position or haphazardly tied rope could cause nerve damage, blood clot or other injuries.
 

The rigger should:

  • Know what you’re doing
    Learn and practice. Find an experienced mentor to guide you or watch video tutorials. Practice suspending techniques and rope control using heavy free weights. 
  • Find a trusted rope partner
    Find a bottom that you can communicate clearly with as you take the next step in doing your first live suspensions. An experienced bottom can tell you where your knots are too tight or if there’s pressure in the wrong place, which will help improve your rigging.

  • Be aware of your partner’s medical issues
    Find out if they have joint or muscle issues, blood pressure issues or diabetes. These medical conditions make someone unsuitable for rope play. With a healthy partner, make sure they’re hydrated before you begin.

The restrained partner should:

  • Work on flexibility
    Being suspended requires your body parts to be maneuvred into positions that can be uncomfortable. One way to reduce discomfort is to do exercises that increase flexibility and core strength.
  • Communicate
  • If you have any medical issues, are experiencing numbness or pain during suspension, you need to let the rigger know. If the ropes aren’t positioned correctly or if you can’t move a limb or wiggle your fingers or toes, you need to tell the rigger immediately. 

  • Find a trusted rigger
  • If you’re a beginner, you should do your first suspensions with an experienced rigger so you can learn the right way to be suspended. This way, you can pass on your experience to beginner riggers as you work with them. Whenever you partner with a new rigger, don’t allow yourself to be gagged as it’s verbal communication is crucial until you’ve established a relationship that allows non-verbal communication.

    Other BDSM suspension equipment for rope play

    Though these are regular mountain climbing equipment, they are useful accessories for BDSM suspension and rope play and can be part of your Shibari toolbox.

    • Carabiners
      These are widely used in rope-intensive activities, allowing you to make fast and secure connections between components. They also reduce friction and allow the restrained to easily pull up their body weight. The rigger can pass a rope through a pear-shaped and D-shaped carabiner and attach it to your shibari ring or connect it to a swivel suspension ring.

    • Rigging Knife
      This is especially handy for emergency situations where you need to unjam knots or cut part of a rope to free your partner.

    Suspension Frames
    You can make suspension frames out of swingset hardware that allows you to attach anchor different types of restraints to for suspension and rope play.
