This may seem obvious, but I love shibari. To me it is a wonderful medium to connect with another person. It runs the gamut from performance art to SM device to sensual connection, in that way is more like a language than a skill set. Like a language you can learn the basics relatively quickly but spend a lifetime exploring the poetry and art of rope.
Here you can find all the materials to begin your own journey with shibari, from educational videos to the ropes and rigging hardware used to tie your partner.
I hope your journey is as rewarding for you as mine has been for me.
