Safety ideas

Reading report incidents on Fetlife brings me to rethink about safety rules I am going to apply in future.

There is lots to say about safety, but I am going to write down only few points.

Not only, that it is dangerous to let the tied person to walk around room or even let her live the room, it can also be dangerous to do shibari when she stands. When she is not tied to any stable object so she could fall, it is risk. She can faint suddenly and fall down and either to break some bone or even hurt face or teeth. There can be more reasons. First - if your bottom is new to shibari, you don't know what can happen. Maybe she just have some kind of allergy or she is claustrophobic or she is not in good mood or psychical state or she just forgot to breath correctly, or maybe she got cramp in the leg... So many possibilities, which can ruin bottom's confidence to you. It looks like it would be more safe to do Shibari when the bottom would sit on ground or in bed.

Another point I want to prepare, is to be ready to talk with my bottom if she is new, before we do first shibari. To consult with her the aspect of safety and tell her what is expected from her and what is not expected. Also there is lots of questions which I should ask like her health status. She also must know, that any kind of tingling or numbness in fingers or muscles is signal of danger that must not be ignored.

One of the most important things is to continuously check her fingers if she can move them and wrist drop, if the wrist is not drop. That would be a signal to stop and release the tie because one of the nerve was pinched and could be damaged.

Also going into shibari without making warm up exercises to release muscles and nerves, may not be good idea. Any later act of extreme stress made on muscles or limbs could damage some nerve in body. Yes, because nerves are limited by the motion of limbs and bones and by contraction of muscles. So rigger needs to know where are the sensitive areas, where the rope should not be placed and where are the areas, where the  nerves are stressed during movement of limbs. The joins like shoulder join (humerus head), elbow (cubital fossa) are sensitive areas, where nerves (radial nerve, ulnar nerve, median nerve) are tensed if you rotate the arm or forearm from its natural position. Yet any additional pressure can increase possibility of nerve damage.

Dummy join failture

I found that one of dummy's knee joins failed. Maybe it happened during suspension training. I would like to buy metal hinges to fix problems with knees. Read more in article update:

Dummy leg problem during suspension

If you plan to do dummy like I have, you can find the biggest problem with legs, because they are relatively heavy. If you don't want they to disconnect from body, you will need to fix upper limb joins (shoulders) to lower limb joins (hips). I used metal rope, thin cca 2mm. If you will suspend your figurine (it's better to work with it when it is suspended), you must suspend it in vertical postion, the main line goes from neck (shoulders join) to spine (metal rope) top hips (bottom of pelvis - hips joins). This make one firm line, which is possible to suspend.

If you would like to do suspension, like vertical suspension, you must not forget to connect the main supporting line (neck line - spinal line), otherwise your legs can fail in hips and can damage your dummy.

If you would like to do face down suspension or similar, where body is in horizontal position, then you must be very careful on the lower limbs. Because here you did not suspend the main vertical line ("spinal" rope), so the legs are not lifted up - so there is missing the force pressing the legs upwards to pelvis. The force goes opposite direction: either downwards or backwards...

As I said, I plan to do a plan and schema to make dummy, but this will take some time, because the scheme is not finished and I don't have time right now to do it.

Are you new here?

You may find here a lot of Japanese bondage tutorials, much of them are advanced techniques based on takate kote tutorial tie. To start, you could read about Sharing conditions which are effective almost for every tutorial on this blog. Then you could follow the Takate Kote tutorials or use Navigation! reference in top left of the blog. You also can use the tag, on right side of the blog. If you have no partner, you can find interesting to create your own bondage bunny from dummy made of towels and dress and binded firmly with a strings. Or if you are good you can make your own dummy according this article: How to make a figurine from a mattress. Then you will find, that practising makes you growing, and it starts to be fun after some time. You will see that it is satisfactory when you can do the things, which looked so hard and professional. But indeed, it is not so hard. All you need is to have patience at the begin of every tutorial, which needs some time to understand, time to try it again, again and once more again, till you understand the principle of the tie. Yes, it takes for example hour or two to get it, but in the moment, when you understand the substance of the article, you find it more easy and even maybe quick to tie. Some ties are for 5 or 10 minutes and some are for 20 or 25 minutes. But learning is slow process, so you need a will and patience. This is the key to success. I hope you will enjoy reading this blog and it will help you to make you own Japanese bondage ties! Good luck!

The curve is very interesting coz it is very rapid growth.
