Bondage show


Two weeks from now, I am doing magic at a Bondage and S&M event. There are other performances too (bondage performances, for instance) and the organizer said that it would be fun if I could do some magic related to the other performances. I said I have no idea what that means, so she took me to another bondage show, to study and learn.

On Monday, a fairly famous bondage woman from Kyoto was in Sapporo doing a show, and before that show there was a short performance by the owner of the bondage club where the show took place too. And before that, another person working there tied up a girl for practice too.

I got to see some interesting rope work. They were very good at tying people up in symmetrical or otherwise nice patterns, and they could do so very quickly. After tying people up in interesting shapes, they also hung them from the ceiling, whipped them with leather whips, and poured melted wax from lite candles on the people who were hanging in the air. There were other things going on too, like feeding someone hanging upside down orange juice (it is hard to drink when you are upside down, so this turned messy).

They also dressed quite interestingly, both the S people and the M people. I also got to talk to the woman from Kyoto (who also thought I dressed interestingly but commented that a shirt saying "I am not Japanese" was an unnecessary clarification; which 4 other people also commented on). She knew people who combined bondage with rope magic, which sounds like it could be interesting.

I also ended up becoming a member of a bondage club. It turned out that the club only allows members to enter, so you have to register as a member. My connections meant they waived the club entrance fee for me, but I had to fill out if I was "S, M, extremely S, extremely M, normal, or other". I picked normal, and who knows what would happen otherwise :-)

    1. Mitt eget uppträdande ska nog inte vara några problem. Däremot har organisatören sagt att målet är att trycka i mig enorma mängder sprit efter hela jippot är över. Men jag lutar åt att gå och jobba när det är slut, så jag räknar med att klara mig undan det med :-)
