Schwelle7 – the meeting point of Berlin's avant-garde artists, bold body workers and sexual revolutionaries, the ultimate venue for innovative performance art, the mecca of rope bondage aficionados worldwide and the stage of the most sophisticated play parties in the city – is losing its premises in Berlin-Wedding at the end of this year. They are looking for a new home! Now they have an offer to buy a perfect new location in central Berlin and are trying to get the money together. This place has been my Safe Heaven since I discovered it. A unique and magical space where I've learned, explored, growned, pushed, reassured, discovered, lost, and challenged myself… A space for everyone to be themselves, or somebody else. Schwelle7 and Felix Ruckert have been doing so much for the community and its members, directly or indirectly, and now it is our chance to give back the love. As many others, I am supporting Schwelle7 by offering my skills as a perk for the crowdfunding. You can book a private class with me (via ‘the Huntress' perk) and use it at any time or place you will meet me, in Berlin or any other corner or the world that I will be traveling. Please have a look at the CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN, maybe support and at least share with your friends ! [...]

EroOuji2
Ero Ouji is today one of Japan's leading Bakushi with his own distinctive style, and a favorite amongst the ladies in his audiences. His performances are a fusion of libido, sensual domination, sado-masochism, love and eroticism. The last performance I saw him give culminated in the lady sitting next to me exclaiming, “God! That man is pure sex!” He never seems to take his eyes off his model when he is tying, and even when he is behind her, he appears to stare right through the back of her head, as if to read every little nuance of reaction to what and how he is tying, and to make it look as it truly is – that she is the only thing existing in his world at that time. Sin: Ero Ouji san. How would you describe your specific rope style? Ero Ouji: My rope bondage is mostly my own style: the method of my Takatekote, tying legs or fingers and suspensions, are my own trial-and-error methods. The point is that it is not rope bondage to show off, to flaunt, or to brag, but the rope bondage from which I myself get sexually aroused the most. Nowadays I sometimes do performance rope bondage at shows or Nawakai rope gatherings, but the majority of my rope-play is still very much private. Sin: How did you start in Kinbaku and who were your influences? Ero Ouji: It has been more than 35 years since I had my first taste of Kinbaku. It was during the late 1970s, when Japan still had only a weak perception of sexual matters, and it was still considered a disgraceful act for women to strip naked in the presence of others, unless she was a stripper or a porn actress. When I was about 20 years old I had learned the simple Takatekote tie from a Bakushi. I was taken, sexually speaking, by an older woman, and since I was still so young, although I was of course fascinated with women in a sexual way, I was not so much fascinated with Kinbaku. However, the older woman wanted me to tie her up. I couldn't really understand her, but I wanted to see how she reacted. So I tied her up. That was my first hands-on experience of Kinbaku. Her reaction was far beyond my sexual knowledge. I thought that she was acting, but she wasn't. I was shocked that she climaxed so many times and had an orgasm in only a Takatekote. After that, I shifted away from tying for a while. Maybe I wanted to get away from her because she was beyond my ability and discretion. But during the 1990s, I watched a BDSM performance at a strip joint and recalled that experience from my youth. So I took up the ropes again, and now here I am. I asked the late great Akechi Denki san for private lessons several times. I showed him my rope bondage, but he just said, “It's all right” and there was [...]
