The interview with our special guest, Bob Bentley, BAFTA award winning producer and the director of “The Pleasure of Rope” which was screened at 1st Cherry Pop Film Festival.

His feature documentary  explores the Japanese art of rope bondage and the people who practice it, sometimes obsessively. Kinbaku, also called Shibari, has origins in the medieval world. Almost forgotten, it has since been rediscovered in modern times, growing from a niche practice on the BDSM scene into a popular passion for many men, women and couples in Japan and throughout the West.
