As a photographer these pictures......

As a participant not sure....

Wow. The one of the woman hanging from a tree over water would be extremely dangerous here in Louisiana. We would call that gator bait.

My reaction to the subject is that it is unadulterated KINK...None of the female models  ever are smiling...

I shoot a lot of shibari (instagram: NFGrope, a badly chosen name I know) and there are plenty of smiling models in there. 

I am totally uninterested in bondage as a kink thing.  No judgement on those who do like it that way, but it's not for me.  I do it for several reasons:

1. It's a challenge.  It's really very difficult to do, and I like seeing my progress as I improve my skills.
2. My models love it.  As audience and as participants, it's incredibly popular.
3. Finally, an answer to the question 'what do I do with my arms!?'
4. It's about trust.  My models trust me to be responsible with them while they're bound, and I take that seriously.

Generally I only work with models I've shot before - getting that close to a stranger is a very different dynamic.

So no, it's not a kink thing, not for everyone.  And hey, it's not for everyone, but it sure seems to be for a lot of people.  smile
