The February 2007 issue of S&M Sniper is out and, as usual, it’s jam-packed with articles, photos and manga showcasing the vibrant world of bondage in Japan. This particular issue features a series of pictures taken by well-known photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki.
What’s especially interesting about this edition is the included DVD which contains short videos from bondage artists such as Shima Shikou, Miura Takumi, MiracleEmi, Kazami Ranki and our own Osada Steve. Not surprisingly, perhaps, the title of the DVD is Bondage Master Quintet.
I haven’t had a chance to look at the DVD yet but I’m intimately familiar with the Osada Steve contribution since I was the editor.
Steve’s shoot has Kazuki as the model. This was the first time I had come across Kazuki but Steve tells me she’s quite a sought-after model. The movie lasts for about 20 minutes and features a variety of rope techniques and positions including a sideways suspension and a suspended hogtie only in this case the model’s hands are stretched back behind her head.
All in all, well worth the 2,000 yen cover price.
