LA Shibari intensive 2016

It's always interesting starting a new shibari intensive, you never know what people are going to need to improve their rope bondage and it's a fascinating moment of discovery. Lots of hard work to follow and people were showing real improvement by the end of the first day.

Shooting with Doobsay

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 May 24th, 2015|Categories: Shoots|Tags: , |

We had an excellent time shooting with Doobsay today. We got did some good stressful rope! I think we're going to have some really hot images from this shoot and I'll be adding them to the portfolio section as soon as they're ready. It's always nice to shoot with someone who's as into rope as Doobsay was and to give them an experience as well as images. We get to meet a lot of great models through rope and we're glad that Doobsay contacted us. Images coming soon folks. This was a pretty good day of shooting. Well this was written some time ago but looks like I didn't publish it. To make up for that here's a couple of images and a link to that gallery.  

Viennese rope festival 2015 (part the first)

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 May 19th, 2015|Categories: Events, Festivals, Performance|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I meant to blog about this event right after it happened and was frankly unforgivably lazy about blogging for the longest time. Now I've blogged about an event since the guilt pressure is finally high enough that I'm going to actually write this up. This was our first time in Vienna and our first time in Austria. Aside from the fact that we would get to see some of Vienna we were excited to see some friends for the first time in what seemed like ages. Wildties, Redsabbath, Saki Kamijoo and her model Mayumi Sumi. It's incredible to think  that over the last couple of years we've met up with each other variously in London, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Chicago and now Vienna. It frankly is incredible to think that this kind of thing now seems so perfectly natural. As usual I'm going to have to take a moment to mention the people that organise events like this. I have to say that they very probably do a better job than I could and we were well looked after being collected from the airport and well informed about everything that was going on. I especially have to say thank you to those that spared their time to show us round some of their magnificent city. It's really spectacular. But before that the festival itself. We were really pleased to be asked to open the festivals shows and the venue was great being in a brewery in the city. The bar section where the opening was held was dark and filled with old blackened wood. It provided a great setting for the opening and a great atmosphere for the performance with the audience close around [...]

Une soirée de performance, sous le signe du semenawa, à la Place des Cordes avec Akira Naka & Gorgone.

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 May 17th, 2015|Categories: Events, Performance, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

This was an unexpected little trip for us but a really nice one. We were asked to perform in Paris with Naka Akira and Gorgone. at Place des Cordes which is a very nice rope dojo. We live 15 minutes from an Airport but in usual style appropriate flights to Paris weren't available so we first had to drive to Birmingham to catch a flight to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The airport btw is a bit big and sprawling and it took a while to get to the appropriate customs, passport control and baggage. And then to find the exit and train. Once we'd found the right way it was only an hours journey on the train to catch a tube to get us close to the venue. Once there the first job was to get cleaned up from the unfortunate ordure of travelling. Sweaty and exhausting. It's a big of an unfortunate thing that though the flight to Paris is only about an hour, getting from your home to your destination can take over 8 hours of actual travel. Our first impresson of Place des Cordes was that it was a really good space and had a great feeling. The second was the huge grins that attend seeing Naka san again. Hugs, back slapping and greetings that make you realise how much you can miss people but also make you realise how many of your friends life far, far away. One friend there we hadn't seen in something like 4 years. It honestly didn't feel that long but when you look at it the time flies by. Not huge amounts to report on the afternoon that was left as most was spent on [...]

Good clean dirty gun fucking bondage fun against censorship!

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 January 20th, 2015|Categories: Information|Tags: , , , , , |

Inspired, if that's the right word by the new British government regulations on porn production which tries to stop UK producers making kinky stuff that has (In a broad sweep, there's a lot more fine grain that's too long to put in a caption, plus it's mainly about video)... Penetration by any object "associated with violence" represented here by a prop gun, Urolagnia (known as "water sports"), Physical restraint with all limbs tied, Gaggs and Humiliation. So... What ya gonna do? We decided to make an image with as much of these terrible things in it as possible. So here for freedom and hotness, gagged, hooded, tied up helpless, half suspended, pissed on and fucked with a gun! Hope you enjoy this little expression of kinky freedom. If you love this please direct your (adult) family and friends to this image so that they can enjoy it too! Please if you care about this then write to your MP protesting this legislation and that to follow. If you're in the UK you might want to write to your Members of parliament and as them what the fuck they're doing about this. Thanks for signing and thanks for reading. Please also read...

BED 2014 Good times shibari Bar-b-q rope jamming cook-out!

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 May 13th, 2014|Categories: Festivals, Learning, Performance, Teaching, Workshops|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I don't even know where to begin with this blog. BED was a complete blast from start to finish. The people of Dallas were great to us and the people of BED especially. This event really has a special atmosphere and has won a special place in our hearts. I'd like to say right off that this event treats presenters better than any conference I've been to in the USA. The team really made an effort to make us welcome and at home. I can't tell you how much we appreciate this kind of effort. It really made a difference to our stay. Highlights of the event include our first show in 6 months. Dinners with friends and seeing people improve in classes. I honestly do love it when you see someone make real progress right there in a class and take away things that can help them improve for a long time to come. It's a cool thing and I never grow tired of it.  My sincere thanks to everyone that came. Next of course seeing Kinoko Hajime san perform again for the first time in a couple of years. BED has a really personal atmosphere, while there's quite a few people there and you cannot of course spend a lot of time with everyone but  many people became familiar and more familiar to us. When we left we were really aware that we were leaving friends behind.  The after party! The after party at TheChurchDallas was an amazing blast. We really had a fun time performing. Thanks to everyone who came and gave such amazing reactions, you really contributed to the atmosphere and our own experience on stage. I can't tell you what it's like to [...]

Baltimore Play House (2012)

By | 2016-10-28T16:39:55+00:00 May 5th, 2014|Categories: Performance|Tags: , , , |

Back in 2012 we had the great pleasure of staying with Hammer, Roxy and Lochai in Baltimore after that year's Shibaricon. While this is something of a late blog I wanted to catch up some of the writings I always meant to do while I have the chance. We really enjoyed Baltimore and rarely for us had a chance to wonder around a little and see a bit of Baltimore and have some excellent wine and food. We especially enjoyed sea food on the harbour where in typical style we ended up in a Japanese restaurant (recurring theme emerging here). Great crab none the less. Our hosts had told us that we must try the crab in Baltimore and they were very right about that. We also did a little bit of shooting and tied and shot the lovely Bella. Click here to see the full gallery! We'd like to say thanks to everyone that made us feel so welcome in Baltimore. One cool thing there was visiting the Baltimore Play House and giving an impromptu show there. The Play House has since fallen victim to a fire and that's a shame as it was such a friendly place. This video is thanks to our good friend Murphy (BlueRisk). Thanks to everyone who came to see us at the Play House we had a blast. We really appreciated your kind words and hospitality. D & C
