The Beauty of Kinbaku (or everything you ever wanted to know about Japanese erotic bondage when you suddenly realized you didn’t speak Japanese) (2008) is the first book about Kinbaku written and published in English. Renowned authority and teacher Master “K”, draws upon his 40 years of interest, study and practice, much of it in Japan and is the most comprehensive volume on its subject.
The Beauty of Kinbaku tells the complete story of the remarkable, sensual and provocative world of Japanese erotic bondage and with the extensive world-wide recognition came a translation into Japanese as A Cultural History of Kinbaku by Norio Yamamoto for the distinguished academic publisher Suirensha (Tokyo, 2013).
Based on the best-selling first edition, and the updated 2013 Japanese language edition, the second edition of The Beauty of Kinbaku is now available and features five new biographies of significant kinbaku practitioners in history, new illustrations, a completely updated glossary and index as well as an extensive new photo gallery.
Master “K” is also the author of the now out of print, collectable hardback publication Shibari: The Art of Japanese Bondage (2004).
