“The Shibari Series”, part two: Spider Web

This is a  series about transformation.  It might make some people uncomfortable.  Then I advise not to read. Spiders do that for me.  This was written when I was doing research for a novel, finally finished.

Restrained by the hemp to a beam above and to posts at my sides, I was secure in a blue rope karada. It bunched my skin where it bound, creating its own mountains and valleys, distorting my natural figure.

Pain was the door, the portal, the whip applied until I cried “Mercy!”  I had slipped into an altered state, far from where pain ate at my flesh. Just back from subspace, I had dangled in the infinite where time stopped and a crude salvation was born.

Looking up at the ropes I was now in a spider web, frozen at all points, the fly caught, splayed in a hemp web 360.

I glanced behind me.  The spider was a big one, gently stroking my welts, drinking a glass of water, or perhaps it was green goo. He smiled, now aware I was conscious and with a questioning expression, picked up the single tail and shook it at me.

“More?”

I smiled slyly.  Such gluttons we were, the spider and the fly.

    Hi Gayle. I don’t really understand that bdsm world. I did a lot of research for a novel (A Kapitany….finished but not published yet…) for about a year. I was very confused especially by the women in this world. They had a lot of issues. And the men? Generally egotistical, unattractive men. But the women disturbed me more. Why would they put themselves in such experiments? They were second class citizens in this world and that ain’t right. There is NO church of the BDSM, but folk act like it. LOL!

    Sad to hear that about the women, Jane. So interesting how people are compelled to act out their issues in strange and bizarre rituals and just how are they drawn down that path? Human behavior is such a fascinating thing to me.

    It’s fascinating until you get up too close. LOL! The women were enslaved by a mindset. Mostly of their own making. Many of them were obese, and thought this was the only way they could attract a man. But the men they attracted, in many, many cases, had serious psychological issues. And generally, were not interested in them. They just used these women and their plight made worse. It’s all about power and control…just like with so many religious people. Power and control over others.

    Very sad, Jane. It seems to be the way of humanity..to want to enslave others. I don’t think that a lot of us are that spiritually evolved to where others are held in respect and care. Hell, often not even in our own families, as you and I have experienced.

    Ass we know from first hand experience…. What was disturbing was also the attitudes of men. They just assumed that they were due the ultimate respect because they were men. LOL! I just never got that. you want respect? Act respectful to others. Yes, we mix up spirit and religion and we are none the better for it. Or more to the point, IF we shun the major religions as something that hasn’t fit…we are said to be damned. LOL! I would rather be in Hell than the Heaven of some of these folk.

    Our society has instilled that mindset in our boys and men that they hold a higher position over the females. Respect should have nothing to do with gender and it doesn’t to me. I guess I’m damned in some people’s viewpoint but I feel freer than ever before and that’s all that matters. I’m with you, Jane.
