Naka Akira & Hourai Kasumi & Sugiura Norio: Itoh Seiu edition (2017)

極私的緊縛野史 蓬莱かすみ 第二弾 (伊藤晴雨編)

This is the second photo-project released by Sugiura, with Naka tying Hourai Kasumi.

This time, they have taken special inspiration from Itoh Seiu.

See my post about the first one here.

A B5-size booklet with fantastic photographs, and a 95 minutes DVD. You can see a short clip on Sugiura’s website here: http://www.sugiuranorio.tv/top/products/detail.php?product_id=1814

This is VERY powerful material, a meeting between kinbaku-masters, seeking beauty in suffering, honouring the late Itoh.

This is a limited edition publication. I was happy to get it directly from Hourai Kasumi during her workshop in Paris this Spring with her signature on the cover.

Kazami Ranki: 極限マゾ折檻  [Hard Chastisement of a Masochist]  (2017)

This is number one in a new ”True Sadist”-series by Sanwa. The photos, while often involving rope, also show whipping, kicking, strangulation through hanging, needle play, humiliation play etc. The included DVD has more of the same, but also some rather rope-centric scenes.

Naka Akira: Shibari to Seme (2017)

Naka Akira: 縛りと責め [Shibari to Seme]

This book is a kind of repackaging of vintage material. It offers stills from sixteen videos that Naka Akira did in collaboration with the director 夢流ZOU, from 2002 to 2008, most of them from the original ”Nawa Etsu”-series (”Rope Joy”), all earlier published by Art Video. In addition to the photo-book, there is included a DVD with two and a half hours of material, cut from eleven of the films. Master ‘K’ once included this series of ”The 10 best Kinbaku films and Videos ever produced” – In my view, there is no doubt that they belong there.

Ueda Seishiro: Kinbaku Photo Senshu (1971)

Ueda Seishiro: Kinbaku Photo Senshu (1971)

Ueda Seishiro was a (younger) friend of Itoh Seiu.

Ueda was responsible for the tying in a special issue of Yomikiri Romance in the summer of 1952, something Master ‘K’, in The Beauty of Kinbaku, calls this ”the first commercial publication completely dedicated to shibari/kinbaku photography (…) a groundbreaking event in SM publishing”. See my earlier post here: Yomikiri Romance

According to SMpedia, Ueda attended Itohs funeral in 1961.

In the early 1970s, Ueda published a series of photo-book anthologies called ”Kinbaku Photo Senshu” (緊縛フォト選集). In many of the photos, a table is tilted on the side or upside-down and put to good use. I also recognize some of the photos from another publication from the same time-period: Kinbaku-bi. See my earlier posts here: Kinbaku-bi

Here are some examples from three ”Kinbaku Photo Senshu”-books:

エロスの狂宴 (January 1971)

恍惚の美学 (March 1971)

薔薇聖女 (April 1971)

PS

Ueda was also responsible for the bondage in the movie ”Daydreams” (白日夢), directed by Tetsuji Takechi, based on a script by Tanizaki Yunichiro. Please note that there are four versions of ”Daydreams”, from 1964, 1981, 1987 and 2009, Ueda only did the bondage for the 1981-version. It is available (as are many other movies) with English subtitles here: http://japaneiga.free.fr/pinku.html

Osada Eikichi: Kinbaku tutorials in SM Spirit Magazine 1993

Osada Eikichi: Kinbaku tutorials in SM Spirit Magazine 1993

In 1993, Osada Eikichi published photo-tutorials for seven ties in seven consecutive issues of the magazine SM Spirit [SMスピリッツ ] – number 4–10.

I made an earlier post about issue 6, 7 and 8 here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2016/05/18/osada-eikichi-kinbaku-tutorials-in-sm-spirit-magazine-1993/

Now, I have been able to find the missing issues: 4, 5, 9 and 10. The example posted here is from issue 5.

I take the opportunity to mention here also a very rare tutorial DVD by Osada Kazumi (長田一美) from 2004, entitled M女が語る 女性に好かれる縛り方, published by ”Osada Seminar”, that I was able to procure from her personally at a brief meeting during a recent visit in Tokyo.

Also, if you havent already, please listen to the Kinbakunomicon podcast with a reading of a roundtable conversation after Osada Eikichi’s passing, published in SM Sniper. Participants in the conversation: Osada Kazumi, Osada Steve, Saotome Hiromi and Miki Mori:

Naka Akira and Sugiura Norio

This series of glossy-print Photo-books in A4-format feature Sugiura Norio’s masterful photography of Kinbaku scenes. Rope-work is generally by Naka Akira. Each book comes with a full length DVD from the photo-shoots, sometimes documenting both the process of tying and the process of photography and posing.
