Bakujyo is a unique and interesting video, as it is somewhere between being instructional and performance. It is a great introduction to Yukimura’s style and demonstrates 11 ties, how to do them and what effect they have.
1Crotch Rope Suspension (Matanawa Tsuri)
This tie is a great example of a simple predicament tie that Yukimura enjoyed. The combination of exposure and having the face pressed to the floor creates a strong sense of submission and shame. The hand are brought back between the legs and makes the person who is tied feel stretched and helpless. The crotch rope forces them to remain slightly raised adding a feeling of predicament and pleasure as the rope presses against their pussy.
2Kemono Shibari (Beast Tie)
This tie is one of the core ties in the standard Yukimura Ryuu progression, named the “beast tie” because it resembles the way hunters would transport beasts back to camp after a kill. It is a tie that has a lot of possible variation, but also creates a strong feeling of helplessness. Like most ties in Yukimura’s school, it is designed to create a feeling of vulnerability and shame, exposing the pussy and ass for caressing and play.
3Koshinawa Sakasa Kaikyaku (Waist rope inverted open leg)
Another intense exposure tie. The combination of the waist rope pulling the body upward, and the ankles being tied to force the legs apart produces an extreme feeling of exposure, display, and vulnerability. This tie is quite powerful psycholofically for those who enjoy shuuchinawa (exposure shame play) and hazikushii (embarrassment play) styles of rope.
4Hitonoji Haritsuke (Character Crucifixion)
The first in the series of ties using bamboo to create a powerful bondage experience. The feeling of being tied to something is quite distinct from either floor work or suspension. In this series, the ties are used not just to bind the woman, but to expose and reveal her character.
5Raised Arms Open Leg Crotch Rope Crucifixion
This tie adds to the feeling of openness and vulnerability by raising the arms (exposing the armpits) and spreading the legs. Adding the crotch rope emphasizes the exposure and creates a feeling of helplessness and arousal.
6Sitting with Both Hands Raised Shibari
This tie combines the traditional sitting position (seiza) with a feeling of exposure by raising the hands over the head. This position is ideal for both watching and caressing, showing off both the breasts and the armpits, to create a feeling of extreme openness and vulnerability.
7Seated Hands Behind Neck Rope Hanging Shibari
This tie has a very profound psychological effect by adding and attaching a neck rope while the model’s hands are bound behind her back. Attaching the neck rope to the bamboo frame provides a strong feeling of restraint and adds a predicament causing even the slightest movement or change in position to be felt very powerfully.
8Raised Hands Behind Shibari
A simple change in rope position turns a basic gote (hands behind tie) into something more dramatic and strenuous. Attaching the hands and raising them, creates a more stressful position, also pushing the body and breasts forward to enhance the feeling of exposure while also increasing the sense of helplessness.
This tie adds a great deal of compression to the chest and creates a beautiful pattern by adding asymmetry and a sense of roughness to the design. Multiple layers over the breasts creates a very strong feeling of restraint and helplessness.
10“Peach” Single Leg Open Leg Tie
With the knee tied and raised, the focus of this tie is exposure of the bottom. The term “momo” of “peach” is often used in reference to ties that expose the ass and make it vulnerable and open, resembling a peach.
11Single Leg Single Ankle Open Leg Tie
Like the momo, this tie focuses on exposure as well, but in a more intense and extreme way. Pulling from the ankle forces the legs and knees apart, displaying both the ass and the pussy. This is a core tie in Yukimura Ryuu progressions and is designed to create feelings of shame, exposure, and embarrassment for the person tied.
