Kinbaku and Predicament Bondage


The Strappado - this shibari tie was traditionally used as a form of torture all over the world for hundreds of years. The arms are tied together and lifted high, to add a cruel pain in the arm muscles and the shoulders of the captured one.

I tried this bondage with my bottom in a partial suspension earlier this week, creating a predicament by lifting her leg to cause a balance of pleasurable agony. When she leans back to relieve the strain in her leg, she increases the angle and pain in her arms. If she leans into her leg, she further strains the pain around her arms. She is caught between two places, and this is where the real challenge begins; in the mind.

Predicaments are a test of both physical and psychological endurance in BDSM, and a delicate balance of chemicals. In this shibari, I prepare her body for the impact by layering and wrapping the rope on her arms, gradually growing tighter and tighter. She starts to build up chemicals to prepare her body for the endorphin rush and the adrenaline that hits the sweet spot for a masochist.

Then, gradually, I attach a jute rope to her wrapped arms and begin to lift them, I ask her to look at me. I like her to look me in the eye whilst I'm hurting her. I bind one leg in a “futomomo”, a tie that fastens her leg together to make it harder for her to move on the ground and try to find a comfortable position.

I take great pleasure in watching her suffer, I whisper to her sweetly, asking her to tell me how much it hurts, how much more can she take for me. Chemicals flood through her mind. Yes, she is challenged mentally, but she is also getting high from the pain, and beginning to float.

I observe her. The japanese words for dominant and submissive, are that I as a mistress would be named the “Seme” and the rope bunny submitting to the challenge is the “Uke”. There are woodblock prints, hundreds of years old that depict the Seme sitting by the Uke whilst they are in a sadistic tie. The seme watches and sips their tea, relaxing and amusing themselves watching the sub struggle until finally, through cathartic suffering, they begin to let go.
