Released earlier than we expected, here’s the full length version (9 minutes, instead of 4) of Primal Scream’s 2013 video in which ESINEM did the bondage and me the model. Enjoy!
Private tuition is available from as little as £30 per hour, per couple at Esinem’s south London studio. Private tuition is possible for individuals, however, a model would need to be provided at additional cost, typically £25-£30ph, if you cannot provide your own. I have been Esinem’s full-time apprentice since February and have been assisting with his classes. I have performed both at The London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage and internationally, run the BOUND shibari nights and attended courses by Kazami Ranki, Yukimura Haruki and Kinoko Hajime. Being only about 6.5st (42kg approx), I am very skilled in overcoming the challenges presented when tying those heavier or more imposing than myself. All my lessons will be adapted to your requirements, so book now! £30.00 – 1 hour private tuition £60.00 – 2 hours private tuition £80.00 – 3 hours private tuition £100.00 – 5 hours private tuition
The contents of the workshop would be a continuation of Kazami Ranki’s workshop and the theme would be suspension techniques, attention to details and behaviour. Dr Phil’s reputation is as a rigger technician who focuses a lot on details, precision and safety, so that will be the focus of the programme. He will showcase two suspensions usubuse tsuri and teppo tsuri, time permitting. Kazami Ranki has taught the latter suspension during his workshop but this will be different and use different technical aspects, which give another perspective for students who have been to the previous workshop.

SensesShibari3 “The purpose of this dissertation is to examine how Shibari practitioners understand their own practice. I will consider if Shibari can be understood by contemporary theories on bondage and BDSM. In trying to understand the practice, this dissertation also considers if it is possible for Shibari to some extent reframe and expand the sociological knowledge on bondage. Furthermore, the intention is through ethnographic research to explore what tactility means in this bodily practice; how touch can be understood as something active and communicative, reaching out to others as well as reaching towards the self.” - Hedwig
