Takeaway: Japan is rich with kink culture If you're anything like I was 10 years ago when I first moved to Japan, you'd probably imagine this country to be a pretty kinky place. If you're interested in visiting Nippon and taking advantage of all its glorious kinky depravity, there are a few things about BDSM here you may want to keep in mind.
I'm here to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. As the birthplace of kinbaku , Japan has much to offer lovers of rope bondage. Classes taught by seasoned experts are readily available in major cities for people interested in learning how to tie and suspend. If you happen to be visiting Osaka but lack the Japanese skills to study with a native, hit up my friend Milla Reika , an Australian kinbaku performance artist and instructor with major chops in the scene.
Japan is big on a strict and well-defined social hierarchy. Additionally, achieving harmony in one's relationships often takes precedence over individualism here. As such, submission is a well-practiced point of pride deeply rooted in the culture. Bottoming BDSM practitioners come aiming to please. Japanese people are known for being fairly private and reserved. That being said, they don't share all the deep-seated religious shame toward sex that we carry around and tout in Western culture.
Japan has a history of unique sexual acceptance that's still present today in the form of things like kink-themed love hotels and convenience store porn. Japan's long tradition of high-quality pornographic artwork dates all the way back to the Edo period when shunga , a traditional form of erotic woodblock printing, enjoyed its boom. Check out the works of one of my favorite kinky Japanese artists, Namio Harukawa , for an example. My home city of San Francisco is a mecca for events, munches, workshops, and BDSM-related establishments that are either free to enter or very economical for attendees.
Not so in Japan. If you want to meet other kinksters, your best bet is to go to a bar where bondage is the main focus, or a kinky performance. Sound sexist and expensive? You betcha. And that's before the cost of drinks. Speaking of drinks, Japan takes a very different approach to drinking and is largely accepting of what Westerners consider to be alcoholism. As many of Japan's BDSM-themed establishments are bars, many people play while drinking fairly heavily.
