LA Rope at Threshold: Humiliation Ties: Kinbaku for Shame and Pleasure (Sept. 3, 7:00)

So often we focus on the physical aspects of kinbaku, while paying less attention to profound and intense psychological effects our ties may have.  In this class, we explore the fundamentals of Shūchi nawa or “shame rope.”  Ties that create feelings of exposure and helplessness can also be used to explore areas of shame, embarrassment, and humiliation.

We will discuss the foundations of shame-based play in Japan and in the US, exploring some of the crucial differences as well as some of the points of similarity.  

The class will provide hands-on examples of two “exposure” ties as well as outline techniques for creating a headspace that will allow your ties to have stronger psychological impact.

Instructor:  Zetsu is a co-founder, with Master “K,” of LA Rope and a student of Yukimura Haruki (under the name Haru Yutaka) and deshi to Master “K.”  He has been studying kinbaku since 2008 and is a licensed instructor of Yukimura Ryu.
