Of Japanese Bondage and History of Sex

Japanese_Bondage_Set__15_of_20_by_markvarleyGoogle ‘Japanese bondage’ and you will instantly get around 6 million results. Dig a little more to find out its origins, and you will get hundreds of different answers and all sorts of explanations. Although this may come as a jolt to your expectations, the truth is that there is hardly any solid history to Japanese bondage.

Like most erotic techniques, games and styles, Japanese bondage is also a compilation of several different influences and techniques. As it is often the case with such subjects, there are a large number of so-called experts of Japanese bondage too.

Mysticism and all those fancy words

Let’s start with some hard facts: the oldest documented text on sexuality, and the pain, impulses and different forms of restraint which accompany it, is the Kama Sutra. Perceived by many as merely an ancient sex book, Kama Sutra is actually a lot about wisdom. It dates back to thousands of BC and the monk Vatsyayana, who is believed to have written Kama Sutra, actually did much more than merely penning down the facts which had been only oral teachings until then.

Sexuality is one of the three important pillars under Veda (the holy text of both Buddhism and Hinduism). Veda acknowledges sexuality to be an important source of wisdom, apart from spiritual and socio-economic knowledge.

From there on, this awareness spread to different countries, especially the Orient. However, it changed as per the regional or local differences and took shape of even better insights.

Introducing Martial Arts

Indulging in fighting for both attack and in one’s defence is something as old as sexuality and spirituality. Power has a lot to do with eroticism. All the above three have a unique connection to the bedroom, legislation and crowd control. People have been using mystic and fancy words for ages to enhance their chances in bed. In fact power, sexuality and spirituality have brought both success and downfall to entire kingdoms.

The modern-day sexuality

Taking a giant leap to the present age of Internet, television, fast cars, Internet and iPhone, we can see that there are couple of things that have changed significantly over the last few decades. The first is that people have slowly distanced themselves from their roots. Secondly, anyone can turn into anyone, and get in touch with others on the Internet in a matter of seconds.

Please keep in mind the notion of “I know something that you don’t” which has been a major power instrument since the evolution of mankind, and is still used actively for improving ones chances in bedroom.

Japanese bondage – Its reality

Japanese bondage, as also popularly known as Kinbaku-bi or Shibari, has all sorts of influences. If you look into the contemporary Japanese bondage, you’ll find influences of Japanese theatre dating back to 12th century, geisha culture, a suicide ritual dating back to 17th century, different art forms, acupuncture and Martial arts. In simple words, Japanese bondage doesn’t have a linear history. It has been evolving over a period of time.

Regardless of the fierce debates that have been going around the subject, Japanese bondage has no solid history of its own.
