This is a thick photo-book with many outdoor-scenes, typical for Shima Shikou.

It also contains a number of tutorial pages.

Shima Shikou in スペシャリーS&M,  No. 26 (1982) and No. 29 (1983)

Shima Shikou has been around for a long time on the Japanese S&M scene. I have posted earlier about an issue of Sun & Moon from 1977 that features an article signed Shima Shikou. I have now updated that post with some of the photos. Here is a link:

In this post, I share some photos of a tutorial by Shima Shikou in the magazine Specialist S&M  (スペシャリーS&M ) from 1983. (There is a tutorial also in the issue from 1982, but I found this one the most interesting.)

Erisa Satoh: Tristes Tropiques: Akira Naka’s Blue

This booklet is a rare photographic exploration of kinbaku. Not focussed on the tied up person (although they are visible in some photos), also not focused on the interaction between the person tying and the person being tied (which was often the case in Erisa Satoh’s previous book) – but instead the focus is singularly on the tying person, Naka Akira, in a certain… blue… mood.

A very beautiful project.

See my earlier post on Erisa Satoh’s previous book wih Naka here:

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.

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.
