I have practiced some techniques with my model. Great tips make it easier to do the rigging straight.

Anyone interested in shibari (rope bondage) should pick up this book and give it a read. It's by far the best shibari book I've read so far.

Shelves: nonfiction
Informative and funny. Lots of pictures. Male and female models. At least one BBW model. I love the way the first step of every tie is "Identify the body part to be tied" with a picture of a hand pointing at the body part.

Great Great Great resource on doing basic ties. And even a bit of complex ones. I'm really glad I purchased this book.

Slightly disappointing

I hoped to find instruction on hishi karada (full body harness), but there are none. The ties that are shown are well explained and there is lots of important safety and care advice throughout the book as well.
