Minomura Kou: Poems in SM Kitan (1979 and 1980)

bild 1-1.JPG

SM Kitan was an SM magazine published 1975–1980, with lots of high-quality materials. We will be returning to it here on the blog.

In this post, I want to share some poetic texts written by Minomura Kou, accompanied by an illustration (also by Minomura). This was a recurring feature in the magazine. The material I have chosen is from SM Kitan issues #9, #10, #12 (1979), and #1 (1980).

The translations are done by rish. THANK YOU again!

Hey, one more time 
Terribly sweaty all over the body
Sticky and slimy wet
Never experienced such cruel things
Being pinched and hit…
Being tickled and hurt…
You played around with me mercilessly
You were great tonight
Manly and violent…
Ah, that’s why I was on fire
It was good, it made me go crazy
Hey, mess me up like that one more time

Rope-love blues

Ah, the rope… the friction…

If I move my hips even a little

It presses hard on my embarrassing spot

It’s painful…

It’s very tight

”Getting wet, right?”

Please don’t say such embarrassing things

You know I’m very sensitive

You are mean, such a cruel person

Please remove the rope already

No, I want you

Please torment me more with your body!

Sweet cry
Hey, forgive me… Be patient with me…
The arms hurts… and it stops the blood
The tips of the fingers are getting cold
Tops of the boobs too
You treated me so violently
I am throbbing, aching
Hey, it’s enough now, right
It’s hard… and painful…
No, it’s not that I dislike it
It’s not that I dislike it but now, now…
Hold me
Hey, please hold me…

The cry frowned upon
Ah, don’t look
Don’t look at me so much
You do know that I’m shy
You are mean, looking at me from behind
The touch of your breath tickles me
Oh, don’t touch
No, no, no…
I’m too loud, you say, but it’s impossible not to
Because you are too good
Yes, there, harder
Ah, you may, you may look

Dan Oniroku: 猟奇の女 [Ryoki no onna, ”Bitchy Girl”]. SM Novels series No. 5

This small format paperback book is part of a series of reprints of stories by Dan Oniroku. (This particular story was first published in SM Select in January 1971.) But don’t be fooled by the modest appearance – the book also contains twenty-something high quality print colour photos of Minomura Kou‘s kinbaku from the period 1975–1980. In October 1980, Minomura fell ill, so these pictures could maybe be said to represent his ”mature” style.

Many of the readers of this blog are perhaps more familiar with Minomura’s artwork (presented under the name of ”Kita Reiko”) than with photos of his ties. Such photos can of course be seen in many magazines through the years, but very often these magazines contain no information about who has done the tying. Here, it is cleary stated, along with the years the photos were taken.

Here is a link to an earlier post about the 1953 Minomura-book ”Beautifully Bound”:

And here is a link to a conversation between Nureki and Yukimura, where they among other things talk about the shooting of the film The World of Minomura Kou: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2017/01/05/nureki-yukimura-dialogue-in-sm-spirits-1993/

Urado Hiroshi (Ed.): ”Es and Em” (えすとえむ) No. 3, 9, 10, 11 (1979)

The magazine ”Es and Em” (えすとえむ) was a magazine edited by Urado Hiroshi, published in the years 1978–1981. It has the subtitle ”A magazine about fulfilling dreams”. Many of the same people involved with ”Sun and Moon”-magazine are contributing also here, such as for example ロマン派生 (Roman Hasei).

In addition to rope-play and other SM play, a recurring thematics in this magazine is ”seppuku”.

I have chosen some images of seppuku for the blog this time.

Urado Hiroshi (Ed.): ”Sun and Moon サン・アンド” No. 3, 5, 6, 10/11 (1978)

In the first images here (from issue 3 and issue 5) rope is by Yamamoto (see further my last blogpost about ”The Beacon”).

Then follows four images with rope by Urado, from issue 6, where the model Mayumi Miyata appears (mentioned in my earlier post about the magazine ”Image” No.2), with Urado using his hands to form her face. (Marginal note: Issue 5 also features some of the photos of Urado’s rope that are included in Image No. 2, along with an article – but here, the photo-reproduction is not as good [small, black and white, non-glossy paper].)

In the double issue 10/11 there is a photo-illustrated article called ”Female seppuku mania letter”. As we shall see in an upcoming post, this as a recurring theme in a related publication from this time.

Urado Hiroshi: The Beacon (1977-1978)

Urado Hiroshi: The Beacon (ザ・ビーコン)

”The Beacon” was a photo-magazine published only in a few issues (indeed maybe only these three). Most probably 1977–1978.

I am not sure, but to my eye, it seems it contains rope-work both by Urado Hiroshi (the images where white cotton rope is used above), and by Yamamoto Issho (山本一章 , my proposal of identifying the tying person wearing the blue striped pants).

Yamamoto (born 1927) is a historically interesting bakushi that we may well be returning to on this blog. In an interview with Akechi Denki from 2005, Osada Steve asks:

Are you completely self-taught? Did you learn rope from someone?

No one taught me. But I did become friends with Tsujimura Takashi, whose work appeared in Kitan Club in those days, and his friend Yamamoto Issho. They were based in Kansai (Osaka) but we would meet when we could and practice bondage together, and lend each other our partners.” (Source: http://www.tokyobound.com/blog/?p=114 )
