Rigger kink is a type of BDSM that involves tying and binding another person. It is often sexual but can also be used for artistic purposes.
Open and honest communication is key to a healthy rigger relationship. Both partners should discuss their wishes, boundaries, and health concerns before each scene. They should also establish safe words and check in regularly during the scene.
Rope bondage is a kink that can take multiple forms. Some riggers find it sexually satisfying, while others may simply enjoy the high of being restrained. The kink can also be used for edge play or to explore consensual pain/torture BDSM kinks. Some riggers may even use it as a way to express their artistic side and create beautiful patterns and knots on themselves.
For safety reasons, a rigger must always be careful and attentive to their model’s needs. A sloppy or dangerous knot could easily lead to the death of a model. It’s important for both participants to communicate clearly and honestly about their boundaries, fantasies, and health concerns before engaging in a rigger scene. It’s also a good idea for both parties to have a strategy in place for aftercare and to keep a pair of safety scissors or EMT shears on hand for quick escape.
In order to be safe, a rigger should always use rope that’s thick enough to support their model’s weight. Hemp and silk are natural options that are durable and comfortable for the model to wear. Carabiners and clips are useful tools for rigging and can be attached to the model’s bound arms or legs, providing support for suspension scenes. A rigger should always have a variety of clips and carabiners on hand to match their models’ needs.
The rigger kink is an intimate and deeply personal type of play that can create intense sensations and feelings. It can also strengthen a relationship between partners. It’s important that both participants understand the power exchange and vulnerability of this type of kink, as well as the importance of clear communication to ensure a safe, non-abusive experience for all involved.
Shibari, which translates to “to tie,” is a Japanese bondage style that involves tying a submissive partner in various ways for arousal. While this type of kink has become popular internationally thanks to fetish porn and other imagery, it originated in Japan. It was practiced in underground adult entertainment venues and in specialty binderies before becoming increasingly popular in the US during World War II. After the war, a handful of American soldiers brought it back to their homeland and spread it from there.
Shibari is distinguished from other types of rope bondage by its focus on torso constriction. It also features a sensual aesthetic that can be described as “symmetry broken into asymmetry,” according to sexologist Midori. It can include floor ties, body binding, and suspension work, which may involve lifting the model off the ground using ropes. It’s crucial that a riger is aware of how to tie the model in a way that is comfortable and safe for all parties involved, including those with medical conditions or injuries that require special attention.
Paddles and whips
A paddle is a simple and titillating toy that delivers the sensation of impact play, with little to no learning curve. A paddle is a thick, blunt wedge attached to a handle and can be used for spanking or a variety of other effects. Paddles can be made from leather or rubber and are available in a wide range of sizes. Those looking for a deeper feel can opt for a wider paddle, which simulates more of a spanking feeling while leaving red marks on the skin. For the aficionado of stingy pain, whips are also an option. Whips have a much sharper sting, and are the toy you might see Indiana Jones or Catwoman using in the movies!
For a more targeted effect, crops and slappers offer more precise pleasure. These shorter single-piece toys can be aimed more precisely and are great for the back or even the thighs. When used in conjunction with a flogger they can create intense sensations of impact that will leave your partner dancing with arousal.
Rigger kink can be an extremely satisfying and rewarding experience for both the dominant and the submissive. But it is important to communicate clearly and effectively, taking the necessary safety precautions to ensure that the experience is safe and pleasurable for both parties involved. And remember, it is always a good idea to start small and work your way up to more forceful play.
Vibrators and sex toys
Rigger kink is an alternative to sex toys and a form of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, and Masochism). It involves one person, known as the rigger, binding and tying another person, often called a rope bunny or bottom, using various objects. It is a highly sexually explicit experience that requires an open mind and communication between partners. It is also important for the rigger to know their own limits and understand the mental, emotional, and physical consequences of their actions.
Vibrators and sex toys are common tools used in rigger kink. They are available in many shapes and sizes, with both wireless and wired variants. Some are designed to fit in the penis hole or clitoral hood, while others may be used for anal penetration. They can be used alone or with a partner. They are often made of silicone, latex, or rubber, and come with a variety of textures.
Whether solo or with a partner, it is essential to use lubricant to prevent friction and discomfort. It is also recommended to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to familiarize yourself with the tool and its possible settings and features.
It is also important to clean sex toys regularly, especially when used in the penis hole or for oral penetration. This helps prevent bacteria buildup and reduces the risk of infection.
