Essentials Intensive: Kinbaku LuXuria Takate Kote

History, Functionality, Body Handling and Aesthetics of the 3rd rope

The Takate Kote (TK, or Box-Tie, Gote Shibari, …) is one of the most common and fascinating techniques in Japanese Bondage. The principles and patterns come from Hojo-Jutsu and were used in feudal Japan for the effective control and presentation of prisoners. Since then, there have been many evolutionary steps to make the bondage safe and applicable for erotic play.

In this workshop we will follow this evolution and introduce the Kinbaku-Luxuria / Riccardo Wildties Gote in detail. We also present variants of the third rope for Seme-nawa. In contrast to our Seme-nawa courses, this time we focus on the technique. This also means that we will announce the workshops for individual registrations and encourage you to try both sides and exchange partners if necessary. This is a practical workshop, you will tie a lot.

Frequently asked questions:

I am a total beginner in the rope. Is the workshop suitable for me?

This workshop is not suitable for total beginners, the right workshop for beginners is Essentials I: From Zero to Patterns and Play. In order to be able to participate really intensely and also to achieve the maximum effect for you, you should have already had first practical experience with simple chest harnesses.

I don’t have a partner. Can I still participate?

Yes, you can / should participate in this workshop alone. For practice you are encouraged to actively change roles and partners.

Can I also participate as a model?

This laboratory will have valuable hints ready for you, where you can recognize a good aka safe Rigger – seen that way: Yes.

We always have problems with the TK, especially in suspension. Will we find a solution?

We will try to address the problems individually. Placement and tension distribution of the layers can often have a great influence on how the TK feels in the suspension. However, there are also anatomical factors, flexibility of the shoulder joints, etc. as well as psychological effects that sometimes cause problems with the TK, completely independent of the design.
