Kinbaku-bi, anyone?

Kinbaku-bi, anyone? -

Meaning literally, “the beauty of tight binding”, Kinbaku-bi, the Japanese art of erotic bondage, has long fascinated Nobuyoshi Araki, who has made it one of his most important subjects. He’s been called a genius and a poet, and also a misogynist, a pornographer, a monster, but Araki’s work transcends simplistic moralistic classifications; he has said of his work: “There is no conclusion. It’s completely open. It doesn’t go anywhere.” Whether literally or figuratively, his bound subjects are certainly immobilized, yet in the most tantalizing ways.

    Anytime women are bound, it can be polarising. Especially to those who do not understand bondage in a relationship. Still it makes for provocative and sensual art. X

      That’s very true. If people can wrap their heads around the thought that it is two consenting adults and the Women do not look unhappy — it is elegant.

      I have never done it. I’m not good in enclosed spaces, but I do like being restrained. M. isn’t into rope tying, so I don’t see it on my agenda any time soon…but, I agree, it is beautiful.
