Riccardo Sergnese aka Wildties, is an Italian rigger and rope artist. Kinkster since ever, he's introduced to BDSM in his thirties. A couple of years later he discovers rope, and especially Japanese rope bondage that he starts to study and practice with the aid of his model Redsabbath.
This seducing discipline fascinates him to the point he decides he wants to be a pro and make his living out of it, one day.
It is the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage 2011 that sets one the milestones of his bondage career. The performances by the many Japanese Kinbakushi, like Hajime Kinoko and Kazami Ranki, as well as the performances and teaching of people like Wykd Dave, offer him a new perspective on what rope bondage is, and especially make him decide to dedicate himself particularly to traditional Japanese rope bondage. Also since then he is no more focused on technique as much as he is focused in the connection and feelings that a session of Kinbaku-Shibari can give to rigger and model.
Since 2012 he is being performing and teaching throughout all Europe.
At the end of 2012, seduced and inspired by the work of Akira Naka, he starts exploring a new style mainly based on the use of ropes as a mean of aesthetic erotic torture. He devotes himself totally to Semenawa focusing his bondage on a very traditional Japanese style.
In August 2014 he has the honor to be invited to perform as main event at Naka Nawakai, Naka Akira's private session series. It was the first time that someone else than Naka San himself was main event at Naka Nawakai.
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.
