Shibari Turk I

Turkey is a middle eastern country. Population of the country is half western and half eastern. 99.2 percent of the country are Muslim.

Shibariturk is a BDSM group who are doing brave things in Istanbul. In this video you will see Serkan and Lena's boundage.

It is a love and chain. We are all bounding ourselves in real life without seeing ropes. If you marry someone, that is a boundage.

If you take money from the bank, that is a boundage too. When we asked Serkan, what this movie is about, this is what he said:

'Born from the art of war shaped on more than one cultural & erotic heritage for hundreds of years, Shibari is an experience that conveys the interaction of the human body with pain and lust, with oneself and the environment, sometimes as a pleasure, sometimes as a performative and often as a kinky practice. During this experience, which individuals perform on their own bodies within the framework of consent, is a door to different worlds for some,

It can be tantric and meditative. Rope between contacts; a brush and the body as a blank canvas.'
