Japanese rope bondage at Bound: April 2014

Nina Russ is the Isambard Kingdom Brunel of Japanese rope bondage.

Tonight we get a demonstration of how hoists, pulleys and suspension bridges work as she ties Maya - no flesh mountain, but bigger than Nina, as most people are. And I have seen Nina tie Antoine Savalski, who must displace four times as much bathwater as she does, by flinging her creative intelligence at the problem.

Subjects from tonight's Bound at the Flying Dutchman in Camberwell: Nina Russ and MaYa Homerton, Mr Beat and Clarisa, Stefano Laforgia and Dana, Bruce Esinem and Nina Russ, members of the audience.
