Ugo (aka Kotake, コタケ、小竹) has founded SMpedia on Nov. 2009, which is a Wiki-type dictionary about Japanese Kinbaku. His interests range from the past and current Kinbaku-shi to historical background that has given birth to Showa SM culture in Japan. Daily twittering about short history of Japanese Kinbaku culture can be read in @SMpedia in Twitter or ugo.smpedia in Facebook (in Japanese).
Kinbaku Today was founded in 2014 to promote kinbaku, the art of Japanese erotic rope bondage, to the Western-speaking world.
Since its inception, Zetsu has served as the founding editor for the site, publishing contributions from authors in the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
The goal of the site is to provide a forum where people can read announcements about events, books, and video releases, read interviews with Japanese bakushi and models, study tutorials, view galleries of both Western and Japanese rope artists, and learn more about the history of the art of kinbaku.
