Attending a Shibari workshop

Friday, December 6th.

It was our 4th visit to the Antwerp Fetish Café (FC).
The last two times were on Saturday when the club is private and we attended the monthly Fetish Lounge Club as members.
On Friday the FC is open for everybody and as we, Princess and I, experienced during our very first visit, they take the time to answer all your questions.
We had been looking forward to this evening ever since we signed up for this workshop. It is our Xmas present to each other.

We went down the stairs, several meters under street level and arrived in the FC.  The two main cellars date from the 16th century with impressive vaulted ceilings, the brick walls battered and covered with several centuries of history.

The first cellar is the bar, the second the Dungeon and separated by a thick and old wooden door that can be closed for privacy.
When we arrived at the bar we felt a little disappointed. The last time we attended the cellar was filled with the colorful people from the lifestyle, the air sizzling with eroticism. Doms dressed in black leather, subs barely dressed, and beautiful women in latex with their girlfriends in black lace… Eye candy everywhere.

Now only a few people, your average Joe, were sitting at the wooden bar.
We ordered drinks, non-alcoholic, and at nine we entered the Dungeon for the Shibari workshop together with 8 other couples.

The rigger, we had already met on a previous occasion, is a young guy and was accompanied by his lovely girlfriend.
We all said hi and then the workshop stared with a demonstration of an hour.

L., his partner, stripped naked and the rigger showed us some simple roping, moving to a harness and more complicated bondage ending with a beautifully created suspension.

It was obvious the girl was aroused while she slowly rotated, her legs spread by the rope, helpless and exposed to the attendees. I noticed how the little lips of her shaven sex opened a little showing the inner ones and Princess whispered she found the ring through the clit hot.

The next 2 hours we learned about safety measures and the don’ts and moved on to basic knots and finishing with a simple harness. The rigger and his girl answered questions and each couple got enough of their time to make the most out of the workshop. We don’t have rope yet so we bought a package of 5mm jute cut in 8m lengths.

The rigger complimented me and it made me beam.
At one moment, while making the harness, I slowly pulled the rope over Princess’ shoulder making her tremble with desire. It was a gentle and very intimate gesture that I completed with stroking Princess’ cheek ever so gentle.
The girl came to us, smiling, telling she had enjoyed watching this intense and beautiful moment between us.

We both know, Princess and me, this bondage will change our sexual life for the better and when we tried it for the first time, Saturday evening, and erotic hell broke loose.

Unfortunately Princess was suffering from a persistent cold when the workshop was running to its end we left not before having a quick drink at the bar.

On the road back home Princess told me she had noticed a colleague she vaguely knows, sitting at the bar and when she made eye contact the woman was not very amused.
Princess does not make anything out of it but it was funny as it shows how small the world can be at times.
