About The Blog

Welcome to my Shibari blog! A place for me to express myself, sharing my art and information on how to practice Shibari safely and ethically.

Shibari is something I stumbled across quite by accident, but very quickly fell in love with. I am very fortunate to have several friends that model for me on a regular basis. Also, I self tie – initially to help with rigging others, but have found great fulfillment in self tying itself.

I have gained lots of experience over the past three years or so since I first started, and enjoy how it enhances my life and that of others. Over the last year, my skills in the aerial side of shibari has developed greatly, largely due to my self tying and having wonderful friends to work with. To me, it’s a creative outlet, a way to express a deeper sense of self, to find pleasure in something that can be physically and mentally challenging.

Shibari has taught me an awful lot about myself and other people. It has helped me focus on building personal physical fitness and mental focus, to be able to create and sustain shapes and dynamic ties. It has taught me to be patient and mindful of the needs of others. It has enabled me to forge strong, meaningful connections with those I tie.

So, welcome to this journey into my greatest passion, shibari. Enjoy!


I am now available for private lessons in rope. I’m willing to teach basic ties and provide safety tips. See my Facebook page for more information https://www.facebook.com/deanexashibari/
