Kenji Matsui: Suspensions (オール吊りの本, Oro tsuri no hon)

According to SMpedia, Kenji Matsui (1940–2013) was an ”amateur” nawashi, who’s work was sometimes published anonymously. He had some relations with, among others, Akechi Denki. Kenji in turn was an important influence for Kamui Jubei and the ”Mumonbaku”-style.

Hourai Kasumi, Naka Akira, Sugiura Norio: 極私的緊縛野史 蓬莱かすみ  /  Gokushiteki Kinbaku yashi   Kasumi Hourai

This is an extraordinary publication. A collaboration between master photographer Sugiura Norio (born 1942), nawashi Naka Akira (born 1959) and nawashi Hourai Kasumi (born 1980).

I do not know of any other Japanese kinbaku-publication where a person switches, and acts both in the role of tying and in the role of being tied.

It has three elements:

* A booklet with fantastic photos by Sugiura, of Hourai tied by Naka.

* A DVD with Hourai tying  御前珠里, directed by Sugiura

* A DVD with Naka tying Hourai, directed by Sugiura

This limited edition came with an additional collector’s photo, signed by Sugiura Norio.

The Joy of Being Allowed to Tie Women Freely

by Chimuo Nureki

Although I have been doing photo sessions for various kinds of SM-magazines and tied nearly a thousand young naked women over the last ten years, there weren’t many publishers who let me tie as I wanted. It is increasingly uninteresting for riggers [縛る方] to tie for publishers these days, since the poses and patterns they want are generally boring. I have often thought that I want to do something different.

Then one day, I got an offer from the photographer Haruro Kai, working for the publisher Kyowa. He said: ”You can tie how you like. We will not decide for you how or what you do. I will just take pictures of everything you do and make a deluxe photo-book out of it.” It was such a great offer so I gladly took it.

What made me most engaged and what I liked the most in creating this book is the section called ”18 patterns of Nureki-ryu kinbaku-jutsu” [濡木流緊縛術十八種]. I had not done anything like this for any other SM-magazine, and I don’t think anyone else would have agreed to include it. As the photographer Kai was taking the photos in the studio in Shinjuku, he was astonished and said: ”You tie in such a beautiful way [綺麗に]. I didn’t know that there are so many different ways of Shibari”.

I tied the model Yuko Izumi in so many different patterns and as the photoshoot took a long time, her arms and chest even got a bit swollen. She was tied and released repeatedly 18 times, sitting in Seiza the most of the time. As it wasn’t just a modeling but more like having real sessions, she was nearly crying. The location was in such an intense atmosphere.

In later books, if the readers have interest, I would like to show also 18 patterns of hashira shibari [柱縛り十八種, tying to a pole], 18 patterns of tachi shibari [立ち縛り十八種, standing positions], 18 patterns of tsuri shibari [吊り十八種, suspensions], 18 patterns of aotake shibari [青竹十八種, tying to bamboo], and 18 patterns of ebi-seme [海老責め十八種, torment ties sitting crossed-legged and the upper body folded over].

My intention for this publication is to cater to the desires of the pure SM-enthusiasts [”maniacs”], rather than aiming for the usual, popular eroticism. How do you readers like the book? There are so many types of SM-manias. The most common are kinbaku mania and topping-play mania. And the less common include kancho-play [enema], seppuku [ritual cutting of the abdomen], and josou [crossdressing] manias. The less common maniacs have quite strict and specific needs and their expectations are on a higher level than the more widespread forms. I’m thinking about trying to fulfill the needs and expectations of these minorities if I get the chance to publish a second or third photobook.

One more thing that other SM-magazines never do, but that we could do in this book was that we could take snapshots of practice scenes for an SM-show [SMショ-のけいこ場面]. With the cooperation of Yuri Izumi and Akira Sakamoto (Nikkatsu porn stars), and the cooperation of the theater Kawaguchi DX, we were allowed to take photos the practice scenes for the show ”Chikandensha no majo” [痴漢電車の魔女]. I was the producer of the show, so that’s why the photoshoot was possible. Backstage photos of shibari-scenes are very rare, and I think it will be a valuable collection of photos for you, maniac people. The photos show a very raw, unique atmosphere compared to photos taken in a studio, a hotel, or an inn.

I was planning to write details about models and how the photo-shoots were, but I have decided to postpone it to the next book because of editorial considerations. I would like to include it in a second book, since I believe that the reactions of models and the atmosphere of the scenes are somethings maniac people are very curious to know about.

This photo-book was made possible through the photographer Haruro Kai’s passion, and the editor Toru Souda’s great efforts. What you readers can see in the pictures in the book is the result also of their hands- and leg-work.

Please look forward to the next book.

Kinoko Hajime: ナワナノ~七菜乃緊縛写真集~

Ropework AND Photography by Kinoko Hajime

Model: Nananano (ナワナノ)

Publisher: 三和出版

ISBN-13: 978-4776913856

This might qualify as Kinoko’s second photo-book. (See a post about the first one here: https://kinbakubooks.wordpress.com/2014/09/01/kinoko-hajime-紅天狗-red-tengu-2014/ )

The book has four sections – Red, Black, Yellow, Green – all with different atmospheres and settings. It also has dense poetic texts on the different colours and scenes.

Large format, high quality paper.

Every now and again, I can’t help myself including some references to DVDs, although this somewhat breaks the self-imposed limitations for the format of this blog (and limitations are surely necessary to keep some kind of quality, as well as limiting the time and effort put down on it). Anyway, this time I include some quick notes on Kinoko’s video-output, as this is a field where it seems he is currently expanding. Of course, I can in no way do them justice with my scribblings, but mainly want to catalogue them here for future reference (and as usual, to make them easier to search for).

For a long time, the only DVD I knew of with Kinoko’s rope-work was the documentary ”Nawa-shi” (縄師) from 2008 (top left on the first image above). It is a quite generous movie with interviews with Kinoko and some of the models, clips from shows, tutorials of some ties, and scenes from the club and other social contexts. (Directed by 広瀬陽, ASIN: B001EXGYJ8)

Since this DVD, there has of course also been made some more recent documentaries, such as the widely seen one by VICE, still available on the Internet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNSXNCaTYl0

In the Fall of 2014, Kinoko released the luxuriously set ”Kinbaku3” (緊縛3), where he ties the famous model Kawakami Yuu. The number 3 indicates that the DVD is part of a series (in ”Kinbaku 1”, Kawakami Yuu is tied by Naka Akira, and in ”Kinbaku 2”, she is tied by Yukimura Haruki). This DVD has been said to represent a public welcoming of sorts of Kinoko to the Kinbaku adult video-scene by putting him side by side with two older masters. I found it very interesting to observe how Kinoko’s tying here contains some clear influences of Yukimura’s and Naka’s (and indirectly Nureki’s, one could argue) styles, but at the same time keeps a very distinct identity in his subjectivity as a bakushi, with his dance-like awareness of his own movements, and the grace of his hands. (Sometimes the power and clarity of his touch makes me remember I read somewhere that Kinoko has training as a chiropractor). (Code: TNH-05)

In Spring 2015, the DVD ”Bakushi-Den 2” (縛師伝 2) was released, with Kinoko tying the model Kumire. This was part of an other high-profile series, this time with Yukimura acting as Director of the movies. Yukimura has a clear presence as an influence on the style of tying (this is, in my view, a VERY sexy movie). Yukimura is also stepping into the movie frame in the last scene, as a kind of a ”making-of”. (The first in this series, ”Bakushi-Den 1” (縛師伝 1), also directed by Yukimura, featured Osada Steve as the bakushi, Iroha Shizuki as the model.) (Code: AKHO-112)

Now, the latest DVD-release by Kinoko, late sumer 2015, is called ”Insomnia” (インソムニア), and features the model Nananano (the same as in the new book mentioned above). Again in a somewhat luxurious and costumey-style, the different scenes use different dramatic locations, sometimes with clear nudges to scenes done on film by earlier masters, while in every case staying distinctly original. (Code: VAN-001)
