Hebari.net is a site for those that love Japanese rope bondage, fetish photography and body modification, though not necessarily at the same time. ¬†Why those three things? Simply because these are my passions and I’m happy to share them with people that share my love of alternative art forms.

Since my first uneducated forays into rope and kink in general around 1992 I have worked to develop my craft with teachers including Osada Steve, Arisue Go, Nawashi Kanna, Hajime Kinoko, Avalon, Satomi and Lukas Zpira and my late sensei, Yukimura Haruki. As a part of my studies and my passion for Japanese rope, I have travelled to Japan three to four times a year since 2011 to study and enjoy the beauty and culture.

So many people have helped me to grow in my understanding of rope, body mod and play, teachers, friends and partners. This work is my attempt to give some of that back to the community as I have been so lucky to receive. Please feel free to get in contact with me through the contact page or though my facebook page if you have any questions or suggestions for articles.

Scalpels and Blades

I thought it might be useful to write a post about the tools I use and why I use them. Firstly the type of scarification I do uses a scalpel to either cut a line into the flesh or to remove sections of skin. The handles I prefer are round dental scalpel handles like the […]

Unconscious Competence

With rope education we are always talking about competence, ego, getting students to slow down and focus on depth rather than breadth, don’t jump ahead yada yada and on it goes. The thing about learning a skill is that it’s bloody boring, it starts out as exciting, the prospect of the wonders to be unlocked, […]

Connective Rope

This may seem obvious but sensual rope is about engaging the senses and what may surprise you is there are more than 5. We all know about sight, sound, touch, taste and smell, all first order senses what is often missed are not strictly speaking senses but I’m going to take some poetic license. Sense […]

Are men allowed to hurt?

As men are we allowed to hurt? Weaken ourselves to feel the pain of emotion? Let our partners down by failing to be calm and strong? As a dom and a man, what weakness are we allowed, what is too much? Is uncertainty an infraction, Then surely crying must be a sin. If we have […]
