Essence of Shibari: Kinbaku and Japanese Rope Bondage (Paperback)
The art of kinbaku, also known as shibari, is an elegant way to connect with a partner or add erotic spice in your life. Japanese-style bondage artist Shin Nawakiri shares his safe, sexy, and beautiful techniques in this newly-translated book, which contains numerous ties for the beginner artist and for intermediate or advanced players, including: sensual body wrapping without knots, binding one wrist or body column, body harnesses, futomomo (thigh ties), and takate kote (chest and arm binding). Explore the history of kinbaku, practical shibari for graceful and steamy play, the psychology of bondage (for those tying and those being bound), and more. Now is your time to enjoy this delicious form—learning from a renowned rope artist in the privacy of your home.
Shin Nawakari publicly advocates for BDSM rights in Taiwan. He is an international kinbaku performance artist and has taught in Macao, Tapei, Moscow, London, and beyond. Piez Jeng is a traditional photographer based in Taiwan, with more than 10 years of experience in the visual arts.
