Their Workshops

Japanese Bondage (Shibari) The tradition of Japanese bondage has existed for several hundred years. Its origins date back to the Sengoku-Dynasty (around 1500), when brutal torture methods were developed to be used mostly against Christians. Binding and Suspension were considered very specific techniques that required specialized masters. Nowadays bondage is practiced for erotic and aesthetic purposes, and during the Eighties the knowledge of the technique started to spread to Europe. The work of renowned photographers as Masami Akita and Nobuyoshi Araki further increased its popularity. Bondage Masters in Japan see themselves as artists who, in a sophisticated and detailed process, transform the tied-up human body into a work of art.
