Shibari master Encho prepares the ropes for Ricky, his next prey. Ricky's a tattooed Japanese muscle stud clad in a simple black thong. First his arms are bound, tied behind his back. His muscular pecs are tightly bound and held down. Trying to maintain a blank expression, Ricky's inner anxiety shows through the bravado, he worries what's about to come. Encho's next step is to bind Ricky's legs. The subject's breathing grows faster. He suspends Ricky from a beam, whole body up in the air, held by the binding ropes. His position is upside down and diagonal, head hanging toward the floor. When Ricky groans, Encho gags him with a towel, rendering him silent. His muffled moans don't pierce the quiet, his agony at the hands of a true sadist will draw no attention. Pleased with his cruel work of art, Encho sits to watch Ricky's suffering. His sadism satisfied, he loosens the suspension ropes to free Ricky. Still reveling in his power, he teases his subject, tugging at his legs with the rope. Lying on the floor exhausted, Ricky breathes a hesitant sigh of relief.
