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
Is the beauty of kinbaku like haiku?
It's not so strange a thought nor so great a stretch.  Consider some of the qualities that describe haiku:


The beauty of form not mere ornamentation.

Having a set of rules gives purpose to actions, exerts               a control over the moment.

Haiku focuses on the here and now, using your
      senses to explore what is around the body at this                    very moment.

Haiku are written from experience, not from belief                  or idea. They are actual, concrete and securely                        cemented to the present—whenever it happens.

     •Appreciating the patina of the well-used rather than               the shine of the new.

Seeking an experience known as “satori”, or
enlightenment, when a person comprehends
             completeness, the oneness of all existence.
Kinbaku Haiku:
In only three lines
fleeting beauty is captured
the reader's heart soars
Ebi (Prawn):
Curled up like a shrimp
in a hemp fisherman's net
waves wash in...release
Tortoise shells cover
a soft inner beauty-
pleasure by design
