BoundI like bondage... and when the opportunity came up to help a friend that had taken some workshops on rope bondage/Shibari I was happy to help out.
We spent countless hours practicing the art and I discovered something surprising.
Bondage made me feel free.
Bondage released me.
Yes, of course I was bound, many times unable to move much at all... But the relaxation that came with it was a freedom I hadn't experienced.
I think it's all about giving control of myself over to someone I had total trust in.
So it's not all about being restrained, but being able to let go...
