Woman who tried extreme BDSM technique in lockdown says she’ll ‘never look back’

Over the last year, many Brits have picked up new hobbies due to lockdown and the closure of activity centres, gyms and cinemas.

Maybe you started knitting, reading, jogging or ping pong and enjoy spending your free time doing it.

Or, perhaps you were like Amy Winship and picked up a leisure activity which is a little more erotic.

The young woman revealed to Tyla that she had decided to try shibari in lockdown – an intricate form of bondage which comes from Japan.

Sex shops have seen bondage and BDSM gear sales soar in lockdown so it seems that thousands are giving it a whirl.

Amy admitted that she had previously tried BDSM in a relationship, but now claims she’ll never look back after trying the Japanese version.

Shibari is essentially the art of tying up where you tie yourself, or a partner, up into detailed and intricate webs of rope.

Sometimes people are even suspended in the air while being unable to move.

Amy explained: "There are a lot of skills you can practice with self-tying, diamond harnesses and futos."

She continued: "Single-column ties are the first ties you start off with in every case on one part of your body and then you expand on that.

“With self-tying you can really hone on that as a skill."

She noted that you should only use good quality rope and do the correct research, take classes and be a part of a shibari community before practicing.

This is because accidents could be life threatening or you could cut off blood circulation to a body part if something is done incorrectly or goes wrong.

The young woman also noted that it’s important to find a partner you trust and can communicate with and that you constantly check in on them throughout play.

Amy said: "Talk through everything you want to do. “

“Talk through your fantasies and have a safe word or use a traffic light system."

The traffic light system was introduced to non-BDSM practicing Brits through the book Fifty Shades of Grey.

The theory is that green means all is well, amber means you’re nearing being done and red means stop immediately.

A spokesperson from Shibari Study said that they have seen a 300% increase in female participants between March and June of 2020.
