Japanese Bondage: Hope on a rope

bondage31I was wondering if you could recommend any resources for Japanese bondage. I was exploring blogs and a couple of them were recommending two books by someone named Master K: The Beauty of Kinbaku, 2008 (which I haven’t found in Canada), and Shibari: The Art of Japanese Bondage, 2005 (out of print, at least according to Amazon). Have you read these books? Can you recommend any that I can easily get through a Toronto sex shop or reputable website?  Ann
 
I’ve read neither of these titles, Ann, but why don’t I recommend some others that are available in Canada and still in print? A personal favourite is Chanta Rose’s book Bondage For Sex. It is simple, sensationally photographed, covers a variety of styles along with selecting rope and safety and, as Rose herself says in the introduction, “I love bondage: tight, safe, inescapable bondage. When I am bound, my body expects to have sex.” Rose’s knots, Japanese, hybrid or otherwise, are designed with fucking in mind — all the positions leave the submissive open for molestation and/or penetration — and that’s the kind of bondage I like. I have no interest in being tied up and left seething over a bowl of milk for three hours. Mind you, as Fiona from Venus Envy (www.venusenvy.ca) says, “This book is more useful if you have a basic knowledge of rope play already and are looking to incorporate some new ideas into your routine.”

bondage12Midori is another big name in the bondage world and she often does workshops here in Toronto, so if you’re someone who benefits from watching as well as reading, Midori and her ropes will be at Come As You Are on June 22. Sign up as soon as you can because her workshops fill up quickly. In the meantime, Midori’s book The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage is considered indispensable in this genre — it’s also stunningly photographed with elaborate suspension techniques as well.

Another that comes highly recommended is Two Knotty Boys Showing You the Ropes: A Step-by-Step Illustrated Guide for Tying Sensual and Decorative Rope Bondage. “It’s an ideal book for those new to rope bondage,” says Fiona. “It gives the reader great info on safety and focuses on the utility of knowing the basics of multiple knots and ties in order to create bondage for decoration, dominance and sex/penetration. Additionally, the book outlines each technique step-by-step, using pictures with captions that detail each knot and tie so that the reader can follow along easily.”
