Naka Akira: 責め縄絵巻 (Semenawa Emaki) (2011)

This 240-page full colour-book shows photos from seven different sessions, previously released on DVD by Murusou Club. (Quite like this one, but in another format: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/akira-naka-kinbaku-net-vol-1/ ).

One session is together with Naka’s sensei, Nureki Chimuo. Another one is dedicated to Muku Youji – and indirectly maybe also to Nureki, as Nureki very often did the tying that Muku Youji made the images of. In this session, Naka and the model Saki Momoka then use these images as inspiration. Compare my earlier post on Muku Youji’s ”Cards” here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2013/07/30/muku-youji-cards/

Preface by Masayuki Kotoh: ”as he kneels in front of the gods Eros and Thanatos, his Kinbaku emanates beauty. His art expresses a level of poetry which approaches the sublime when compared to those around him”.

Includes a DVD.

Models: Yu Kawakami, Maki Tomoda, Chisa Kirishima, Saki Momoka and Momo Shiroi

愛奴恋虐 (1989)

An issue of a full-colour, images only, pocket-size Kinbaku-magazine from 1989. I am uncertain about how it relates to Sugiura Norio’s magazine 愛奴恋写館. (See the earlier post here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/愛奴恋写館-vol-6-1997/ ) If you have more information, please write me. No ISBN.

日本緊縛師列伝 (Nihon kinbakushi retsuden)

This book, edited by Sanada Nobuyuki, I found particularly interesting. It presents eight Japanese bakushi with a section of colour images of their work, and interviews: Nureki Chimuo, Akechi Denki, Shima Shikou, Hige, Marai Masato, Naka Akira, Randa Mai and Sayaka.

In addition, it has a few historical sections with black-and-white images by Itoh Seiu… and a couple of pages with images of Osada Eikichi at the Bondage bar in Shinjuku – probably taken at the same time as the images printed in the magazine in my previous blog-post (here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/osada-eikichi-in-m女マニアcollector-1999/ )

Osada Eikichi in M女マニアCollector (1999)

It is not easy to find publications with images of Osada Eikichi’s rope-work – his arena was first and foremost stage-performances, not photo-shoots. A comment by Nuit de Tokyo led me to issue 4 of the magazine ”M女マニアCollector” from 1999, that features an article about Osada Eikichi’s friday night performances at the Bondage bar in Shinjuku, with some black-and-white images. Some years ago, Nuit de Tokyo translated the article from ”M女マニアCollector” for the blog Tokyo Bound. I reproduce it below to accompany the images. (Source: http://www.tokyobound.com/blog/?p=270 )

An aside that might interest you is that in his recollections, Osada Steve (then going by the name Dr. D. Vice) tells about this bar being the locus for his first meeting with the person who would become his sensei (here: http://www.tokyobound.com/blog/?p=399).

SM Bar Study Group

Directly from the SM cram school Osada Seminar

Initiation to the essence of fetishism

Host: Bondage Bar

Every Friday, fans of SM are congregating to a building across the street from Shinjuku 2-chome (ndt: Tokyo’s famous gay district featuring 300+ lesbian and homo bars).

Here, starting at 8pm sharp, it is show time for Osada Sensei, a grand master of SM for more than 40 years.

Osada Sensei started Osada Seminar in 1975, and represents the quintessence of SM. In particular the kinbaku (緊縛) of Osada Sensei is quick, beautiful and of a high technical level. For the fans, the interest is in the beauty and technique of the master’s tying skills, and the spectacle of a submissive girl, enraptured by the ropes, suspended in the air is an absolutely must-see.

All submissive girls who want to do a session with the Sensei are amateurs. This must be a pleasant way of enjoying the week, one day at a time.

So, what kind of place is the Bondage Bar? During the afternoon, it’s a café with an SM theme. In the evening it’s “pub time” when the real action starts.

There a S girls and M girls, as well as switches on the premises ready to entertain visitors. Customers seeking more intense and private action can retreat to a nearby ”play room” for a session with a woman of their choice – at extra charge, of course.

Every Friday night, Osada Eikichi sensei will give a performance. This time, the model is Miss J. She is wearing a red juban (kimono undergarment) and respectfully kneels before the Sensei . . .

There is theatrical feel to the scene. The fast rope comes out flying, and then, one by one, the layer of clothes covering the body are let go. The red rope envelops the voluptuous body of Miss J in all directions at the same time.

At some point, the right leg of Miss J goes up in the air and candle wax is poured on her thigh. Illuminated by the candle, a black leather whip comes down with a cracking sound.

Miss J now has her two legs up in the air while a pole fixed to her ankles ensures that her legs stay apart. Hips raised, but her shoulders still touching the floor, more red candle wax is poured on the woman’s breast in semi-suspension. The breathing of Osada Sensei and Miss J are now in tune.

As the show approaches its climax, Miss J is now completely suspended and swiveling through the air. Her body is strictly tied.

A mix of pleasure and pain enraptures Miss J, and the Sensei, with all his heart, extends plenty love to the submissive girl with his whip. “Swish . . . swish . . . swish.” With each stroke of the whip, the Sensei roars like a brave lion “Haaar! . . . Haaar! . . . Haaar!” Mixed with the sound of rapid whipping and manly roars are the yelps of the voluptuous Miss J: “Ha-a-aaa, huh-u-huh”.

The show lasts approximately one hour. When I interviewed Miss J afterwards, you could still feel from her the remnants of the intense pleasure and pain she just went through.

Clearly, Osada Sensei is no ordinary person . . .
