Kinbaku means "tight binding," while Kinbaku-bi means "the beauty of tight binding." Kinbaku is a Japanese style of bondage or BDSM which involves tying a person up using simple yet visually intricate patterns with several pieces of thin rope. In Japanese, this natural-fibre rope is known as asanawa; the allusion is to the use of hemp rope for restraining prisoners, as a symbol of power, in the same way that stocks or manacles are used in a Western BDSM context. The word shibari came into common use in the West at some point in the 1990s to describe the bondage art Kinbaku. Shibari is a Japanese word that means "to tie decoratively". There is much discussion about the distinction between shibari and kinbaku, whether one term is more appropriate than another. One modern distinction, gaining popularity among westerners wanting to distinguish the terms is that shibari refers to purely artistic, aesthetic rope, whilst kinbaku refers to the artistic, sensual, sexual practice as a whole. While thousands of books and articles have been written in Japanese about shibari, no one has found evidence of there being any thought given to the distinction between these words among Japanese practitioners of the art.
A traditional view is. The word denotes tying in Japanese, but in a generic way, traditionally not in the context of bondage; the names for many particular ties include'shibari', but it is not traditional to call the entire activity that way. Instead, Kinbaku is the term for artistic or erotic tying within traditional Japanese rope bondage circles; this view seems to be squarely at odds with the way the word is used in books and discussions of rope bondage among Japanese. An more traditional view is that shibari is a term used for erotic bondage in Japan, interchangeable with the term kinbaku. Itoh Seiu used the term in the 1950s, with no sign of it being a "western Japonism" as did many other well known Japanese bakushi, from the 1950s until present day, including Nureki Chimuo, Yukimura Haruki, Akechi Denki, Ryuuji Takeda, Tsujimura Takeshi, Arisue Go, Randa Mai, Osada Steve, Miura Takumi, Nagaike Takeshi, Minomura Kou. One of Nurkei Chimuo's how-to video series from the 1980s, is titled Introduction to Shibari.
While some claim this is a somewhat hidebound definition and the word shibari is now being re-imported from the West to Japan, as the tying communities are close knit, there is no evidence to support such a conclusion as most practicing bakushi in Japan have limited contact with the west and no interest in debating the meaning of words. Most Japanese kinbakushi do not object to the term shibari, as it's common vernacular in the global community. In Japan the most used type of rope is a loose laid, three strand jute rope; this rope is referred to as "Asanawa" translated as "hemp rope" the word'asa' as hemp and'nawa' as rope, however this is using the more generic form of the word referring to a range of natural fibre ropes rather than those pertaining to a particular plant. In recent history a range of rope types have been used for Kinbaku in Japan though Nawashi use synthetic fibre rope and most use jute; the aesthetics of the bound person's position is important: in particular, Japanese bondage is distinguished by its use of specific katas and aesthetic rules.
Sometimes and intentionally uncomfortable positions are employed. In particular, Japanese bondage is much about the way the rope is applied and the pleasure is more in the journey than the destination. In this way the rope is used to communicate. Traditional Japanese bondage techniques use natural vegetable fiber rope though contemporary Japanese Masters have been working with a range of rope materials; the natural fibers lock to each other which means the bondage can be held together by the friction of twists and turns or simple knots. Traditionally, multiple 6-8 meter lengths are used. Shibari has a strong presence in the works of some renowned contemporary artists photographers, like Nobuyoshi Araki in Japan, Jim Duvall in the United States and Hikari Kesho in Europe. In 2014, Romanian singer-songwriter NAVI released a Shibari-themed music video, "Picture Perfect"; the controversial video, directed by Marian Nica, was banned by Romanian television for its explicit erotic content. Bondage as a sexual activity first came to notice in Japan in the late Edo period.
Recognized as "father of Kinbaku" is Seiu Ito, who started studying and researching Hojōjutsu is credited with the inception of Kinbaku, though it is noted that he drew inspiration from other art forms of the time including Kabuki theatre and Ukiyoe woodblock prints. Kinbaku became popular in Japan in the 1950s through magazines such as Kitan Club and Yomikiri Romance, which published the first naked bondage photographs. In the 1960s, people such as Eikichi Osada began to appear performing live SM shows including a large amount of rope bondage, today these performers are referred to as Nawashi or Bakushi. In rece
Animal roleplay is a form of roleplay where at least one participant plays the part of a non-human animal. As with most forms of roleplay, its uses include psychodrama. Animal roleplay may be found in BDSM contexts, where an individual may take part in a dominant/submissive relationship by being treated as an animal; the activity is referred to as petplay. However, not all types of animal roleplay within BDSM are petplay and not all petplay in BDSM involves roleplaying as an animal; the origins of animal roleplay and petplay are various and diverse, again depending upon the participants involved. However, its origins are influenced by costuming, fiction and legend, roleplay and psychodrama in their various aspects; some of the earliest published images of animal play are to be found in the work of John Willie in Bizarre magazine published from 1946 to 1959. Some of the equipment that can be used in animal roleplay include leash, bit gag, neck collar, bondage harness, bodystocking, butt plug, ballet boots, etc.
Non-sexual animal roleplay was a common and integral part of ritual in many tribal cultures both in recent and prehistoric times, where a member of the tribe would take the role physically and spiritually of an animal, either revered or hunted. Examples of the former include many of Arctic native peoples. Examples of the latter are evidenced by cave paintings. In 1911, Julia Tuell photographed the last Animal Dance performed by the Northern Cheyenne of Montana, it is sometimes used in education physical education, as a way to encourage people to exercise the body in unusual ways, by mimicking various animals. Some superheroes and villains feature elements related to pet play. All involve animal qualities taken on by a human; some would count the enactment or spiritual belief in therianthropy as falling under human animal roleplay or transformation play as well. Peter Shaffer's 1973 play Equus tells the story of a young man who has a pathological religious fascination with horses, but this appears closer to zoophilia than pet play.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1981 musical Cats traces a tribe of urban cats, in 2007 War Horse used full size puppets to play horses on stage. Like much of erotic play and roleplay, animal roleplay in an erotic or relational context is defined by the people involved and by their mood and interests at the time of play, it ranges from the simple imitation of a vocal "whinnying" of a horse to the barking, panting or playful nudging of a puppy, or playful behaviour of a kitten, to crawling around on all fours and being fed, or petted, by hand. To the greater extremes of dressing up as a pony in modified horse tack, masks and temporary bondage based body modification. Public participation in human animal roleplay is varied. A couple could inconspicuously role-play a pet play scene in public, which would look to the casual observer like one partner is stroking the other's neck. In the case of some BDSM fetishists, one partner may wear a dog collar with a leash attached; the reasons for playing such a character or animal can vary as much as the physical manifestations and intensity of the play.
Some people enjoy being able to "cut loose" into a more dynamic personality. In some cases, pet play is seen as a loving, quiet cuddling time where there is no need for verbalizations and the simple act of stroking and holding the other partner is satisfying or reassuring in and of itself for those involved. For others, there may be a spiritual side to it; some feel closer to their animal totem, while others may identify with something akin to a deeper side or part of their own psyche. For still others, there is the experience of power exchange setup in a context or structure which they can accept; some cases could be considered a type of animal transformation fantasy. They can have strong elements of exhibitionism, be enjoyed in the privacy of the home, or lie somewhere between either boundary. While not widespread, erotic human-animal roleplay is still enjoyed by a sizable number of people. However, it is still identified with BDSM practice. Though misinterpreted as being associated with furry or other alternative lifestyle activities, not the case though some instances may exist.
For most participants, it has no connection whatsoever with bestiality, controversial and would be considered edgeplay in BDSM circles. Autozoophilia is sexual arousal that depends on imagining one's self as an animal. Paraphilic interests that involve being in another form have been referred to as erotic target location errors, autozoophilia would represent an autoerotic form of zoophilia. Autozoophilia is practised by wearing an animal costume, such as a latex mask, mascot costume or fursuit; each type of play can focus on a certain "strength" of an animal character. Pony play involves the practice and training that a horse owner or trainer would put their horse through to learn how to walk, etc. as modified for human limbs. Puppy and kitten play can involve BDSM related discipline. Cow Play involves fantasies of lactation and
Suspension bondage is a form of sexual bondage where a bound person is hung from one or more overhead suspension points. Suspension bondage is considered to carry a higher risk than other forms of sexual bondage. In partial suspension the person is bound in a way that part of their body weight is held by suspension ropes, cables or chains; the classic partial suspension position is to have the person balancing on one foot with part of their weight supported through a chest harness and the other leg pulled up in some direction. A person lying on their upper back with legs tied upwards to a suspension point to pull their lower back off the ground would qualify as partial suspension. In full suspension the person is supported by suspension ropes, cables or chains, they have no contact with the ground; the position of the person's body in a full suspension is only limited by their endurance and the skill of the binder. The main effect of suspension bondage is to create a heightened sense of vulnerability and inescapability, as the subject is made to feel that by attempting to free themselves they may fall and hurt themselves, thus creating a form of mental bondage in addition to the physical one that holds them.
Being suspended in a large open space creates a sense of objectification and erotic helplessness for the subject, which can be erotically stimulating for them and for those observing them. Rope suspension is sometimes done as performance art at BDSM conventions and fetish-themed nightclubs. Suspension can alternatively create a sense of liberation in that one can "fly" around the room, some styles of rigging are optimal for the suspendee to have control over their spin rate, body position, general activities. Trance-like states are common, resulting alternatively or from the sensations of'anti-gravity", the heightened awareness of one's body, the sacrifice of one's natural physical strengths; the three main suspension positions are vertical and inverted. This involves the person being lifted from the ground by their wrists; this is achieved by use of rope or by special suspension cuffs. When using rope, extreme damage can be caused to the soft tissues of the wrists, as well as reducing circulation, so being suspended by ropes can only be achieved for a short period of time.
In fiction and movies a person may be pictured hanging from metal cuffs or handcuffs. This is possible, although painful and will leave deep marks in the wrists; the safest and "most comfortable" method of suspension by the wrists is to use suspension cuffs as they are designed to spread the weight around the wrist as much as possible. An alternative method of vertical suspension is to use a bondage rope harness. With the ropes tied around the body and in particular around the upper arms close to the shoulders as well as around the upper leg and through the groin, it is possible to suspend a person with ropes attached to these areas similar to the way a parachute is attached to a person. In this position the arms and legs may be left to hang free, as the person would have great difficulty getting free without assistance; this position has the subject bound in a horizontal position, sometimes face up but face down. The body is lifted into this position either by attaching bondage equipment to the wrists and ankles, or to other areas of the body, or a mixture of both, with the subject's weight born by these areas.
The ankles or wrists kept apart by a spreader bar. In case of the wrists and ankles ropes or suspension cuffs can be used; when the body itself is used to suspend the person, they may first be tied into a conventional bondage position such as a hogtie or ball tie by attaching ropes or chains to ropes under areas of the body able to take weight the person is lifted into the air. A variation on this position is to secure the wrists to either the spreader bar or to a securing point between their ankles forming a hogtie, resulting in what is called a suspension bow. In this position, if the subject is a female and facing down, her breasts would be pointing straight down depending on the strictness of the position, nipple clamps and weights can be added for painful stimulation; the clamps may alternatively be secured to a point on the floor, limiting the subject's ability to struggle or move at all without causing pain. Being suspended upside down can be a hard position to maintain as a result of the position causing the blood to rush to the head.
This means that this position cannot be maintained for any length of time and can lead to the person blacking out. To be suspended in this position, ropes or suspension cuffs are used to lift the person into the air by their ankles. Unlike when a person is suspended by their wrists, rope suspension around the ankles can be maintained for much longer as the ankle region is able to take far more weight and stress than the wrists; this is so if boots are used as the ropes can run around the outside surface of the boot thus protecting the skin from damage. The person may be suspended with their legs together, or held apart either by using a spreader bar or by securing the ankles to two separate locations. With the legs held in this position, the subject may have an increased sense of vulnerability as their genital region would be accessible; the danger most associated with suspension bondage and above the usual risks inherent in bondage, is falling. Inverted positions are hazardous in this regard since a head-first fall of only a few inches can kill or paralyze a person.
Less obvious dangers include nerve compressio
Fear play is any sexual activity involving the use of fear to create sexual arousal. Unlike masochistic tendencies, fear play does not offer the subject pleasure or arousal through a rush of endorphins, but rather a terrified mental state which triggers a release of adrenaline; some have likened its role to that of horror movies, in providing a harmless outlet in which to feel frightened. Fear play is considered edge play, a category of BDSM-related activities with high physical or psychological risk. While Limits are set out in sexplay, they may be pushed or ignored in some edge play scenes to heighten sexual arousal as the subject becomes excited by the feeling of helplessness. Asphyxiation and castration play are common within edge play sub-sections of BDSM; some types of fear play may take advantage such as abandonment or humiliation. Others are more physically based. Medical play, knife play, or kidnappings may include a psychological aspect of fear, but it may be the physical activity that causes the emotion
Vice is a Canadian-American print magazine focused on arts and news topics. Founded in 1994 in Montreal, Canada, the magazine's founders launched Vice Media, which consists of divisions including the magazine as well as a website, broadcast news unit, a film production company, a record label, a publishing imprint; as of February 2018, the magazine's editor-in-chief is Ellis Jones. Founded by Suroosh Alvi, Gavin McInnes and Shane Smith, the magazine was launched in 1994 as the Voice of Montreal with government funding, the intention of the founders was to provide work and a community service; when the editors sought to dissolve their commitments with the original publisher Alix Laurent, they bought him out and changed the name to Vice in 1996. Richard Szalwinski, a Canadian software millionaire, acquired the magazine and relocated the operation to New York City in the late 1990s. Following the relocation, the magazine developed a reputation for provocative and politically incorrect content. Under Szalwinski's ownership, a few retail stores were opened in New York City and customers could purchase fashion items that were advertised in the magazine.
However, due to the end of the dot-com bubble, the three founders regained ownership of the Vice brand, followed by the closure of the stores. The British edition of Vice was launched in 2002 and Andy Capper was its first editor. Capper explained in an interview shortly after the UK debut that the publication's remit was to cover "the things we're meant to be ashamed of", articles were published on topics such as bukkake and bodily functions. By the end of 2007, 13 foreign editions of Vice magazine were published, the Vice independent record label was functional, the online video channel VBS.com had 184,000 unique viewers from the U. S. during the month of August. The media company was still based in New York City, but the magazine began featuring articles on topics that were considered more serious, such as armed conflict in Iraq, than previous content. Alvi explained to The New York Times in November 2007: "The world is much bigger than the Lower East Side and the East Village."McInnes left the publication in 2008, citing "creative differences" as the primary issue.
In an email communication dated 23 January, McInnes explained: "I no longer have anything to do with Vice or VBS or DOs & DON'Ts or any of that. It's a long story but we've all agreed to leave it at'creative differences,' so please don't ask me about it."At the commencement of 2012, an article in Forbes magazine referred to the Vice company as "Vice Media", but the precise time when this title development occurred is not public knowledge. Vice acquired the fashion magazine i-D in December 2012 and, by February 2013, Vice produced 24 global editions of the magazine, with a global circulation of 1,147,000. By this stage, Alex Miller had replaced Capper as the editor-in-chief of the UK edition. Furthermore, Vice consisted of 800 worldwide employees, including 100 in London, around 3,500 freelancers produced content for the company. Shane Smith – Co-Founder Suroosh Alvi – Co-Founder Ellis Jones – Editor-in-Chief Vice magazine includes the work of journalists, fiction writers, graphic artists and cartoonists, photographers.
Both Vice's online and magazine content has shifted from dealing with independent arts and pop cultural matters to covering more serious news topics. Due to the large array of contributors and the fact that writers will only submit a small number of articles with the publication, Vice's content varies and its political and cultural stance is unclear or contradictory. Articles on the site feature a range of subjects things not covered as by mainstream media; the magazine's editors have championed the immersionist school of journalism, passed to other properties of Vice Media such as the documentary television show Balls Deep on the Viceland Channel. This style of journalism is regarded as something of a DIY antithesis to the methods practiced by mainstream news outlets, has published an entire issue of articles written in accordance with this ethos. Entire issues of the magazine have been dedicated to the concerns of Iraqi people, Native Americans, Russian people, people with mental disorders, people with mental disabilities.
Vice publishes an annual guide for students in the United Kingdom. In 2007, a Vice announcement was published on the Internet: After umpteen years of putting out what amounted to a reference book every month, we started to get bored with it. Besides, too many other magazines have started doing their own lame take on themes. So we're going to do some issues, starting now, that have. In a March 2008 interview with The Guardian, Smith was asked about the magazine's political allegiances and he stated, "We're not trying to say anything politically in a paradigmatic left/right way... We don't do. Are my politics Democrat or Republican? I think, and it doesn't matter anyway. Money runs America, he has stated: I grew up being a socialist and I have problems with it because I grew up in Canada I've spent a lot of time in Scandinavia, where I believe countries legislate out creativity. They cut off the tall trees. Everyone's a C-minus. I came to America from Canada because Canada is stultifyingly boring and hypocritical.
Thanks, Canada. Vice founded its website as Viceland.com in 1996, as Vice.com was owned. In 2007, it started VBS.tv as a domain, which prioritized videos over print, had a number of shows for free such as The Vice Guide to Travel. In 2011, Viceland.com and VBS.tv were combined into Vice.com
Total enclosure fetishism
Total enclosure fetishism is a form of sexual fetishism whereby a person becomes aroused when having entire body enclosed in a certain way. Total enclosure is accompanied by some element of bondage; some total enclosure activities include: In rubber fetishism, rubber suits, gas masks and similar garments and accessories are used for total enclosure. Vacuum beds rigidly enclose the entire body under a rubber sheet with a small breathing tube. Sleepsacks and body bags are used as less rigid enclosure alternative to the vacuum beds, although some are made in inflatable form to increase pressure on the occupant's body. In spandex fetishism, zentai suits are used for total enclosure in skintight fabric from head to toe. In the case of zentai, the wearer breathes through the loose-woven fabric itself, the garment is not as tight as a rubber or PVC garment would be, the costume comes off with a zipper that can be operated by the wearer. Being sealed within a giant stuffed animal or murrsuit. Although experiences of these activities are regarded as claustrophobic, total enclosure fetishists like to practice these activities, sometimes combining them with bondage to intensify feelings of helplessness.
As with all activities involving bondage or potential risk to breathing, this is a risky activity. Maintaining an airway, preventing positional asphyxia, ensuring that the enclosed person has a means of escape at all times are of paramount importance, if these activities are not to result in death. See the articles on bondage, erotic asphyxiation for some discussion of the risks involved.

The spread eagle is the position in which a person has their arms outstretched and legs apart, figuratively resembling an eagle with wings spread. It is a style that appears in nature and geometry. In human style it is represented by the letter "X". A spreadeagle is a common position in various fields, it is used in dance routines at the conclusion, in figure skating and at the beginning of sky diving. The spread eagle may be a sex position in which one partner lies on their back facing up or lying facing down with arms and legs spread wide apart; when the partner is lying face down, it is a variation of the doggy style position, when they are lying face up it is a variation of the missionary position. Another variation is for the receiving partner's legs to be closed, the penetrating partner's to be wide apart; this variation is said to be better for stimulating the G-spot and the prostate gland and is sometimes called the peace sign position. The face up versions of the position are popular for erotic massage.
Another variation is to have a vertical spread eagle. These positions are classic ingredients in sexual roleplay; the spread eagle position is employed as a bondage position in BDSM play, sometimes upside down. A standing or hanging position can be achieved using equipment such as a Saint Andrew's Cross or spreader bars but can be achieved with ropes or chains attached to different endpoints; as a humiliation technique it is popular for forcing the subject to display their genitals and to provide unhindered access to the crotch and sometimes anal region for sexual play and torture.
