Welcome to the eleventh RopeMarks newsletter.

We will briefly describe what we have been up to since our last newsletter and about interesting upcoming events where you can meet, greet and talk to us.

It is summer in the Netherlands, as usual this is a period where we wear rain boots most of the time and miss the periods with Sun if we blink our eyes. But still, live is more relaxed and there is ample time to kick back, have a drink and enjoy some piece and quite.

This doesn't mean we did sit back and relax, nope, we let the previous period be dominated by (fetish) festivals, shows, photoshoots, getting rid of our backlog and a short TV appearance and playing the "kinbaku advisor" for this program.

Artist Luxje has given us her interpretation on our original work "Rubber Kinbaku Kitten". Directly jump to Luxje's section to see more.

The 10% shop discount on our red asanawa (Japanese bondage rope) is still valid for the rest of the Summer, read more.

Let's dive into the details of the previous period:



Golden rule s.m, otherwise known as Golden-San, is a Japanese fysiotherapist, who is actively working on more awareness for safer kinbaku. To this end, he released a bondage manual with the aid of Otonawa.

This resulted in a good article about the book on The Daily Beast.

The Daily Beast article was wrongly interpretated by the British media and then the Dutch media, basically, translated the English article into the Dutch language and added some unneccesary, incorrect, non factual and biased information. Here's the article by the "Algemeen Dagblad" and by "Geen Stijl".

The bad, and wrong, publication about the many victims-by-kinbaku got the attention of RTL 4, a Dutch television broadcasting network, that decided to make an item of it for their program "RTL Boulevard". At first the item was going to be about the "freakyness" of the Japanese, but although we were not allowed to talk on the program, our input turned that viewpoint around to a (slightly) better viewpoint (a win is a win).

At best, the whole victims-by-kinbaku story is exagerated by the Japanese media and very much misinterpreted by the Western ones."




Together with model Spring, photographer FL and a bag filled with rope and rubber we visited this delightfully lovely farmhouse. We did anything but lovely to poor Spring, but I do believe all was received as delightful... and then some! Here's a teaser:

We have introduced a new and promising girl into the realm of RopeMarks, Arienh. Bound by RopeMarks, captured by photographer Cas van der Vlugt her world quickly narrowed to rope, RopeMarks style... she was a natural. Here's a teaser:

Now live on Club RopeMarks, "Nipples" with Nereida DeadlySin

Because we can, we put a naked Nereida on the couch, because we like to look at pretty things in our house, because Nereida is simply gorgeous. After the couch we think about putting her on pedestal and enjoy the view of this fetish princess, then we decide to put nipple clamps on her tits, because we can!

We do not release her nipples from the clamps and tell her to come down from the couch and tie each of her legs to themselve, a futomomo for each legs. Then spread her legs and watch her naked vjj and her (slowly getting painful) nipples [...]
