Medved & Mia

Russia. Moscow

My acquaintance with bondage took place at the first bondage fest in 2007 - there I saw this practice personaly for the first time. Since that time it has always been present in my life.
I didn't have any teachers, whom I am able to name, but there are some masters, whose seminars I have visited for those years that I was in bondage personaly. They are: AlekZander, WykD Dave, Riccardo Wildties and Bruce Esinem.
Besides, I try to examine every new tie or type of hanging.
The central thing in bondage is the interaction between a master and his model, in my opinion. There can be different results of this interaction: pain, pleasure, balancing somewhere between sensuality and sadism, orgasm - the range is wide. I can't stay only indifference. The beauty of tying and aesthetics of ropes is pleasant for me, but not a necessary consequence of such a "dialogue".
My shows and actions could be seen at such large events as BDSM FISHING 2011, 2012 (Moscow), BDSM CASTLE (Moscow), RopeFest (St.Petersburg), and of course MoscowKnot, which scene I 'll visit this year with great pleasure and with a new idea.

Georg & Nadezhda

Russia. Moscow

Georg believes that bondage is beautiful when it is full of sincerity, passion, dizzying drive. Even if the technic is perfect, bondage can still be easily ruined by fake emotions. The most essential quality of a rigger is recognizability, his own style, when we can define who is the author of the ties with a single photo.
Moscow Knot for me is a festival, a big show, and all the participants become a family in these days, and it is maybe the only place to see a large number of different styles. Moscow Knot always has a welcome surprise for us with something new and outstanding.

Odin & Mickey

Izrael. Tel-Aviv

In 2014 there was my first time I got into the world of ropes. At that moment I wished for something new, unexplored. Suddenly I dived into such a phenomenon as bondage. I watched Akira Naka and Randa May’s videos and understood clearer that I desired to experience these emotions myself, which had the masters during their sessions. More over I was eager to learn how to give such bright emotions to my partner. I studied tying by trial and error, gradually realizing that ropes are able to give you great power. Besides I intended to discover every knot by my mind and to feel it by my heart. In my opinion bondage is one of the ways to communicate with a woman. Ropes can make something that words can’t do, and you don’t always need words. We have a proverb: there is no limit of perfection. I am sure it refers to bondage too: there are no bounds of developing, there is always something to learn.



GanRaptor is a rigger with many years of experience.
He has confronted and developed his skills at numerous workshops in Germany, Denmark and Italy. Since 2012, he has been running numerous shibari workshops in Poland and Denmark.
He performs at shows presenting his own style of shibari firmly rooted in a traditional Japanese shibari, in which one can see echoes of hojo jutsu, but also sensuality and delicacy. Together with Slaanesh, his partner, they are the authors of the website which is a comprehensive textbook of shibari and bondage techniques.
They are the precursors of shibari in Poland.



Dirty dreaz life rituals
Little swastika is doing body rituals with hooks since 15 years. His way of shibari is pretty unique as he isn’t holding to any traditional rules and he uses the rope as addition to the much stronger hook ritual suspensions. It's more like a crazy wild and intense ritual than any classical shibari show.
Dirty dreaz shows are not really shows. Each time they go on stage they do a very intense ritual they can’ practice in this way before. With a combination of hooks and different techniques to cut down shibari or hook positions in a very radical way, the rite shows still a lot of gentle love and it’s kind of peaceful within itself.

Philip Ann


Philip Ann is an artist passionate about Japanese art

His first meeting with Haruki Yukimura Sensei in 2005 was decisive
He spent several years "searching" for his own rope, then he decided to go to Japan frequently Study, watch, practice ,understand.
Kinbaku is the school of humility, "Every model, every emotion, every moment are different, I remain an interpreter, not an innovator "
"I received great influences from Japanese kinbakushis I thank them every day for their generosity, quality of their teaching, precious time they were to give me. I continue to take lessons in Japan with my Teacher "
For the present, I regularly tie in a SM club in Paris. Cris & Chuchotements

Tessin Doyama & Momosaki Yurina


Doyama Tessin
It's been 14 years, since my first kinbaku show in 2005. I continue to perform many shows, and participate in Japanese adult videos as a rigger.
Every human is born naked. We then learn to wear clothes in order to protect ourselves from walking the path of sticks and stones. With growth, you may get hurt by words and attitudes, said and done by people, you then learn to armor your hearts. Some may feel you need to put on more armor, and get crushed by the own weight you put on. All I want to tell them is, "At this moment, you don't have to feel the need to put on your armour. You are ok to take it off" - that is the basis of my kinbaku and BDSM.
For those who are too strict and cannot forgive themselves for not being able to live a regular life you seek - I will give them punishment. For those who cannot accept their own pleasure, I will bondage them to unleash one's heart.
Your heart at peace, is my happiness.
Momosaki Yurina

I started my career as a Japanese porn actress in 2015, then retired my agency in 2019. I am now a free-lance porn actress/model. Most of my videos I'm featured in are based on SM and kinbaku.

Alexandra Kiki & Ostara

Kazakhstan&St. Petersburg

Kazakhstan Ust-Kamenogorsk / St. Petersburg Russia
Alexandra Kiki knows rope from both sides. She explores herself and others by weaving together knots, pain and sensuality of her beloved ropes. Her model Ostara is a really strong and emotional girl. Every time their bodies meet and ropes intertwine there is a deep immersion in an atmosphere of an intense relationship.
‘My rope is rough and tender at the same time, I like combining these feelings and sharing them with Ostara. Me an her - we experience the same emotions’.

Влада и Фалько


Vlada and Falco are organizers of MoscowKnot and Bondage Time events in Moscow.
This incredibly creative and productive alliance was formed more than seven years ago. Vlada practices rope bondage, flagellation and a variety of BD-practices. Falco is her partner who prefers extreme bondage. Their views on bondage, as a type of torture, surprisingly coincided, giving rise to a unique style - sensual, expressive, probing the limits of human capabilities. Vlada said in an interview that bondage is a significant, very important part of their life, the process often is more interesting to me than the result. Usually goal of my action not only the tied body itself but the process of bondage, so infinite and exotic as growing bonsai.
Since 2011, Vlad and Falco regularly participate in a variety of bondage events. Their performances were seen in several cities of Russia, as well as in Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Germany, France, Switzerland, Israel, Britain, Italy, Japan and Taiwan. Obsession of travelling connected with passion of photography. Many people have seen pictures of Falco, tied among the sights of the world capitals. Each trip of this couple is a creative act, in which not only the tied body, but also the usual objects of the city space are rethought.

Xa Na & Behepa


Xa Na is an Italian woman who decided to move to Berlin some years ago to have the possibility to go deeper and do research about BDSM and its connection with bodywork. She practiced for many years Shiatsu and Aikido and these disciplines gave her some taste about the Japanese way to work with Energy. Her first love in BDSM has been Bondage and it still is.
Since she arrived in Berlin her knowledge about Bondage has improved through a constant practice first in the world of the former Schwelle7 and actually at Studio 6x6. At the moment she does it also professionally as a Prodomme at Studio Lux in Berlin and her research is constantly moving ahead.

Araneo & Asya


My bondage is not for everyone. I’m looking for unlimited emotions, genuine and sincere. I do not tolerate falsity, even at the performances, it is always a full-fledged action and real emotions. My style includes minimalism, dynamics, candidness and sadism. I always try to avoid stock schemes, preferring elements invented by me and borrowed from the history of the Inquisition.
P.S. There will be no beautiful picture or languid sighs. Prepare to see the victim and the executioner. However he is in love with his victim... But still the executioner.

Ptic &Felina

Russia. Moscow

My first experience with ropes was in 2009, when I was tied up by an experienced rigger. After a couple of years I started tying, too. At first it was my curiosity and a desire to let others feel what I felt, but soon I couldn’t imagine myself in any other role. Since I’m a creative person, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to fulfill my ideas, so in 2012 I was already performing on stage. There’s of course a huge difference between doing bondage on stage and in private, each of these has its unique perks, and each is really valuable to me.
‘For me there’s nothing more precious than emotions. Rope is a method. From soft touches to intense torture. During a scene I give away everything I have. From pain to tenderness’.

Nika Felichita & Volny veter


Nika Felichita is a founder of the BDSM community of Kazan, nicknamed ‘Sadist with eyes of a child’ in Ural. Every one of her performances is a small story with a deep meaning, creative ideas and humor, fancy costumes and spot-on music. It’s a real must-see

Zmej & Zmejka

Russia. Moscow

We are a BDSM-couple, together since 2011. For us bondage is an amazing mix of trust and power, submission and passion, pain and tenderness… We think that it’s all about emotional interaction and vibes between the partners, about getting, sharing and giving true emotion. We do lack both a big on-stage experience, and teachers, but we make up for it with a creative approach, improvisation and mutual love.

Nick Freerider & Maria

Russia. Moscow

Nick Freerider is a young shibari master from Moscow. “Rope is a conversation tool, a way to build a dialog between the master and the model. Every session is a deep journey not similar to each other. Shibari for me is an interaction, energy practice, the ability to reveal the model’s soul and the process of self-knowledge as well.” Until recently he was a musician. He usually creates bright images for his shows.

Salamandr & Shandy

Россия. Москва

Kinbaku for me is not just a connection inside a couple, it’s what the couple is created for, what it lives for, and it is the most strong rope. Its threads are communication, caring, family, understanding of life, personal philosophy, it’s what the couple is made of and each person is made of.
When we take ropes, it’s the connection we take, we bind not with ropes, but with our thoughts, we ourselves are a turbulent stream of thought and emotion. By striking out particular feelings we put them into our partner, and if the partner accepts them, the rope becomes ‘heavy’, it squeezes the couple, making them closer and more honest to each other, this is how I see it.

Karlson & Malуsh

Minsk, Belarus

Karlson & Malysh are a BDSM couple formed 6 years ago. ‘I got into bodage thanks to Mikhail Balabanchik. What I care most in bondage is its functionality, in the first place, and also connecting with the partner. I like to experiment and seek new sensations. Bondage is lack of freedom for one partner and power over him for the other partner. Power to give pain and pleasure. Rope is a symbol of the said power, rope is a multipurpose tool: it can caress, bring a feeling of calm and safety, and the very next moment it can rip and torture. Rope is a conductor of emotion, and emotion is one of the main purposes of a session, both a private one, and a stage performance.’

Xa Na - Shiatsu & Shibari

Shiatsu and Shibari are both disciplines born in Japan. They have in common, according to my experience, some traits and they can be complementary for others.
When I first met the world of ropes I was already a Shiatsu therapist since several years, and concepts like vital energy, meridians, pressure resonated familiar in my mind and at that point I was looking for their expressive dimension, which in my opinion should have been not only strictly related to sickness and problems to face. You can’t do Shiatsu with ropes, that’s impossible, but through Shiatsu you can make experience of what means receiving and giving pressure, which parts of the body may have a correspondence and a resonance with some emotions and states of mind and how to work with it.
In this workshop we will explore what are the common points between the world of ropes, the restrictions and the pressure and pressure points, we will work with the breath and try to go beyond the surface of our body. No previous experience is necessary, if possible bring your own ropes.

NoShibari - WORKSHOP I

Quick release structures:
Untying can be a very interesting part of a shibari session, yet sometimes, when the model is in an inverted suspension and you want to remove the chest harness, or when you want to create a sensation of contrast between restriction and freedom, or even in a situation of potential harm, when it is important to untie very fast, in all those situations being able to create a safe route with a few movements is allways a very good resource, plus it is very spectacular on the stage. In this workshop we will learn quick-release versions of classical ties like TK, hishi, futomomo,…
No requirements)

Price: 3000 rub
Start: 15:00 27.04
Place: BDSM Club Predel


Movement and sensations
Shibari is pure intensity, it is about emotion, about taking who is being tied to places they cannot reach on their own. Shibari is to take control of the shapes, the rythm, to peer inside the mind and desires of the other and to enter their very own interesting spaces. In this workshop we will reveal how to combine a bunch of techniques and methods in order to create a dynamic story within your rope sessions.
