Kink and fetishes through the ages...

* You may think that "tentacle rape/porn" dates from modern Japan (eg Toshio Maeda, Urotsukidoji), but it's not. The first known (classic) Japanse artist was Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), who is renowned for his classic Japanese landscapes. He also made Shunga (erotic art), among which his "Dream Of The Fisherman's Wife".
* Did you know that auto-erotic asphyxiation was prescribed by doctors as a treatment for erectile dysfunction in the 17th century?
* Early records of foot fetishism date back to 1220 AD. Experts think the fetish got its start due to fear of STDs (history records show a lot more foot lovers during syphilis epidemics, like those of the 16th and 19th centuries).
* Contrary to popular belief Donatien Alphone Marquis de Sade didn't invent sadomasochism. One of the scenes in the Tarquinia "Tomb of the Floggings" (540 BC) depicts 2 men simultaneously using a woman while whipping her back.

@Lord_Fine you should see some of the old block prints of Shibari....

#kink history 

@Trogdora1 I'd love to... Do you have some good links to those block prints? I know they are difficult to find, even on great resources such as smpedia.com...

And although I appreciate pinterest, I will never use it because they belong in the same data-gathering category like FB & google...

#kink history 

@Lord_Fine I don't like pinterest at all either, if you post something there they think they own it. I do like finding workarounds for pinterest though.

I will continue to search out this sort of art, The Japanese are really in to bondage and humiliation =)

@Lord_Fine Seiu ito is what it is called, and here is a pinterest page from some like-minded soul... pinterest.com/hautemonstre/sei

#kink history 

@Trogdora1 I could be wrong (and sometimes I am known to be), but isn't Seiu Ito(h) a renowned Japanese painter, artist, writer, Japanese theater (Kabuki) specialist as well as the "founding father" of modern kinbaku (aka Japanse rope bondage)?

#kink history 

@Lord_Fine if you do a google image search on Seiu Ito, he died in the mid '60's but obviously was a kinkster artist who liked to work in traditional format.

Hokusai was also kinky. Shunga... Woodblock porn, plenty of pictures on google images =)
