Experimenting: From Patterns to Play

Traditional Japanese rope bondage is a handmade discipline where the most of the hard skills are taught including them into some patterns that students have to reproduce. Learning new skills and practice them are two mandatory steps in one person education, but putting them together sometimes seems hard and intricate.  

In this class, Kurogami & Shiawase will discuss about different way to experiment in bondage, both on the aesthetics and on the feeling sides. Particularly, they will talk about:  

  • Why it's important to experiment and to follow personal tastes  
  • How to "smooth" the concept of harness  
  • How to mix simple elements to obtain different flavours  
  • The importance of failure in experimenting.  

This will be a 2h class, with a live demo. Conversation, questions and comments will be very welcome during the class and highly encouraged.

About Kurogami and Shiawase

Andrea @Kurogami_, 32 years old. In 2014, he met @Shiawase and they became partners in life. Together, they started to study Japanese bondage at the end of 2016, with Riccardo and Red Sabbath. From that moment on, their way of living bondage changed. In 2017 Kurogami and Shiawase gave life to Kinkyphilia, a project for sharing their way of living alternative sexuality and especially the way in which they live kinbaku. In February 2018, Kurogami became a Kinbaku LuXuria’s certified educator, definitely matching Riccardo’s educational values.
In December 2019, Kurogami performed at the 25th Nawa Naka Kai in Tokyo, together with Riccardo and Naka-san.
