The Beauty of Kinbaku

Or everything you always wanted to know about Japanese erotic bondage when you suddenly realized that you didn't speak Japanese
We interrupt our planned posting schedule for an additional arts post - in pictures! Master K's trip to Japan for the launch of the Japanese edition of "The Beauty of Kinbaku."
   That’s right!    

Master “K”’s book, the first ever written and published in English telling the complete story of the remarkable, sensual and provocative world of Japanese erotic bondage, was so well-received that it has been translated into Japanese by Norio Yamamoto for a new edition being published in Tokyo by Suirensha. This highly-respected academic publisher saw great value in Master “K”’s research and scholarship as well as his deep appreciation for this inherently Japanese  art form which has been taking the world by storm. Master “K” has told us that he could not be more honored nor more humbled by this turn of events! 

The Japanese response to the book has been overwhelming and validating. The publisher hosted a reception in honor of the publication and Master "K" and the amazing guest list included: Arisue Go, Saotome Hiromi, Naka Akira, Urado Hiroshi, Kyodo Miyabi, Sugiura Norio, Miura Takumi, Kanda Tsubaki, Saeki, Hajime Sorayama, Sakai, and Imamaura Megumi! 

It was an exciting evening and Master "K" has created a special photo essay on his trip for our web pages.

We could not be more proud nor more happy for him!
