From ornately decorative to excruciatingly stringent, Japanese rope bondage is an art which has developed over centuries of martial and erotic practice. Now, accomplished Japanese-born pro-domme and bondage practitioner Midori shows step by step how to achieve beautiful and exciting Japanese bondage on a variety of genders and body types.

Each chapter starts with a spectacular, tasteful full-color photo of the finished bondage pose -- harnesses, hogties, standing and bent-over poses, and more -- then goes back and explains with text and line art how each rope and knot is placed to achieve the final result. Readers can use the detailed instructions to experiment safely and erotically with their own partners -- or simply enjoy viewing the pictures of Midori's expertise.

This is one of my favourite books showing various rope bondage ties ever. The images in here are gorgeous! The only reason I took half a star off is that the instructions can be hard to follow unless you're fairly skilled with rope already. Read full review

Very artistic. A few beautiful photographs, wide margins, heavy paper. A long introductory section. Not many ties. Lots of black and white line art for the instructions. Read full review
