Good episode? Give it some love!
For the 51st episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra welcome Marika Leila Roux, a Berlin-based Shibari practitioner & the co-founder of Shibari Study, the leader in online rope education.
Shibari is Japanese rope bondage, a form of BDSM. The word broadly means "binding" or "tying." It originated from Hojo-jutsu, a torturous method of restraining captives, before morphing into the erotic bondage Kinbaku in the late 19th & early 20th centuries.
We get into the origins of Shibari, the common misconception that it's an ancient Japanese art, how it relates to Western BSDM practices, self-tying or solo tying, being combined with mindfulness & meditation, the nuances in terminology between rigger vs. rope top & rope model vs. rope bottom, dominant & submissive power dynamics, plus the difference between power & control & so much more.
