Bondage: the art of tying

Bondage is an increasingly widespread and appreciated practice by both men and women. Its positives sides? It increases the couple’s complicity and stimulates the imagination of both partners

More and more couples are using bondage, otherwise known as the art of bonding. The practice of bondage can take on different nuances, therefore it is not the prerogative of those who love BDSM rituals or submission techniques. In fact, there is also “sweet” bondage, but no less sexy, which can become a great ally for couples.

Above all, if the couple is dated and needs to give a boost of novelty and imagination to the relationship as always. Furthermore, bondage seems to be also beneficial for the psychophysical health of both partners.

Stress reduction

First, let’s explore the health benefits of bondage. According to a Dutch study, in fact, couples who play this erotic game are able to reduce tension and stress. The effect of bondage, and of the erotic role play in general, in fact, would be an important reduction in the anxious and nervous component that comes from everyday life and that tends to pour into the couple.

Therefore, engaging in bondage could be the ideal solution for couples who are going through periods of crisis due to a work overthrow or changes in the dynamics of the relationship: for example, advancement in a woman’s career and the possible feeling of frustration of the partner.

The game

Bondage is, first of all, a game. And playing, you know, is a great benefit for the couple as well as laughing together and sharing small or big secrets. All this, in fact, fits into the dimension of complicity. Being accomplices is a guarantee of a long-lasting relationship, it means understanding each other and wanting to get involved together.

 

Hence, bondage becomes a negotiated game. Obviously, the first rule is that both partners really want to do it. An authentic and heartfelt desire that, often, in order to come out in the open, however, needs to break down the cultural and emotional barriers that prevent you from playing and letting go.




Soft bondage

For those who do not like BDSM but still want to experience the art of bonding with each other, sweet bondage is perfect. It is about tying each other using soft accessories such as ties, silk scarves, pashminas, or plush handcuffs.

 

The techniques of bondage are innumerable and are declined according to the fantasies and desires of each couple. There is no need to procure special equipment, you will need a look in the wardrobe or a tie parade right on the spot.




A biological mechanism

Why does practicing bondage cause an increase in sexual pleasure? In addition to the emotional component, there is an important biological aspect. A study conducted by Northern Illinois University showed how in the moment of “restriction” (ie when one is tied up, voluntarily, and plays with the partner), the brain finally loses control and a complete feeling of freedom is activated.

 

This perception of freedom manages to break down some important cultural barriers and to make partners focus only on physical pleasure and on the moment. Transporting the couple in an almost parallel dimension of the “here and now”, extremely beneficial for their health.
