Vinciens began his first attempts at bondage in 1995, and since then he has been tethered to the rope and everything to do with it. After he used rope only in the context of sexual games, he quickly began to work with photographers in 2006 and to artistically implement the erotic art of bondage. The tendency to Japanese bondage art aroused. He made first contacts to his later sensei Osada Steve in 2008. Since then he is in training for the Kinbaku style Osada Ryu. He became a certified Osada Ryu Instructor in 2011 and is allowed to teach this style in the name of his sensei.

Workshops, private lessons, close friendships and cooperation with people from the erotic art of bondage such as (excerpts from) Nawashi Kanna, Kinoko Hajime, Umino (Dragonropes), Matthias Grimme, Ropert, Barkas, Ropeknight, Gorgone, Dutch Dame, Nikolas Yoroi, Esinem, Nawasabi, Stefano Laforgia etc. followed soon.

Since 2008 Vinciens has been running the monthly Shibari munch at the SMart Café in Vienna and was thus the initiator of the Viennese and later the Austrian Shibari/Kinbaku scene. In 2011 he founded the Shibari Dojo Vienna with his former student and later colleague Barkas and hosted the first workshop series with Osada Steve in Vienna. In 2014 he founded the Kinbaku Studio Vienna alias Usagi Goya (nicknamed Hasenstall) together with his partner Kenyade. In 2015 she made her first visit to Japan with extensive lessons with Osada Steve and Yukimura Haruki and visits to Kinoko Hajime and Perfo at the Pink Crystal Club in Tokyo. In 2017 the second series of workshops with Osada Steve took place in Vienna, organized by Kinbaku Studio Vienna.

In addition to establishing the Austrian bondage scene, Vinciens has been supporting the establishment of bondage groups and bondage schools in other countries such as Germany, Switzerland, England and Romania, and is available for rope-work and as a bondage consultant for film and television productions (e.g. “Das kleine Vergnügen”, “SOKO Donau”, “Ainoa”,…), for advertising (e.g. BAI campaign “Ideas need space”), crossover projects (painting, sculpture, body painting, tattoo,…) and various photo projects in Austria and internationally.

Together with his partner Kenyade, Vinciens can be seen performing regularly on various stages and events in order to present his dynamic as well as emotionally strong bondage style.

At the moment Kenyade and Vinciens host the munch „Kinbaku Evening“ every Tuesday in the SMart Café in Kinbaku Studio Vienna, to offer an insight to interested people into the world of bondage. At the Kinbaku Studio Vienna beginners and experts can find an easy introduction into the world of erotic rope art or a deepening of the skills: they offer weekly trainings (every Tuesday), monthly workshops and individual lessons. They also host the event bind and play at the Schwelle Wien.

Since 2013 Vinciens and his partner Kenyade have been an integral part of the Boundcon in Munich, both on stage and behind the scenes, as well as manager and presenter of the Riggerjam-stage at the event Sub Rosa Dictum in Munich together with their friends and colleagues Umino (Dragonropes) and Azooka.

Vinciens attaches great importance to his style and his teachings, the safety and wellbeing as well as the emotional bond between the tying partners. On the one hand, he teaches a well-founded method, without which safety is not granted, and on the other hand he makes sure his students don’t forget they are tying with people and not dead objects. His focus lies on the „tying together“, without losing sight of the safety, beauty and efficiency of bondage.
To quote Osada Steve “Osada Ryu is for all, not just for super sportsmen.” In order to do justice to this, the needs of the people involved are particularly taken into account in individual lessons.

Kenyade has been involved with BDSM, poly and the Japanese form of erotic bondage for many years. Since 2012 she has been regularly touring Europe for workshops and shows. Together with Vinciens she has been running the Kinbaku Studio Vienna aka Hasenstall in Vienna since 2014. She runs Kinbaku in both the roles of Ukete and Shibarite.

Which technique for which purpose?

(Workshop level: L2-3)

Push ‘n pull and squirrel vs. stick and speed.

When do I use which technique successfully?

Kinbaku offers several ways to use the rope efficiently. Depending on whether speed and flow or closeness and emotion are requested, there are different techniques for moving the rope and thus influencing your partner.

From the 9 Gates of Osada Ryu, the chapters ma-ai (distance) and sabaku (efficiency, rope handling) but also ki (energy) and kankyuu (tempo, timing) are considered more intensively.

Explore how different approaches produce different effects.

Catching the rhythm of Ukete

(Workshop level: L2-3)

Many bondage couples tie in a way that places shibarite and ukete in their own bubbles and their own world.
Here we look at bondage in a dialogue. All people involved are in one common bubble.

Shibarite pays close attention to Ukete’s reactions and finds out what Ukete needs at exactly that moment. Depending on Shibarite’s desire and mood, there is also the possibility of transporting own feelings into Ukete.

With simple exercises such as aisatsu shibari, observing breathing, sounds and movements, Shibarite recognizes the condition of Ukete and can act accordingly.

Here, too, the themes of the 9 Gates of Osada Ryu are taken up again and especially the chapters urawaza (hidden techniques) and ki (energy) but also muganawa (selfless tying, open mind) and kankyuu (tempo, timing) are used more intensively.

The intention of touch. Every movement counts

(Workshop level: L1-3)

Unfortunately, many Shibarites tie like chess players. Always several moves ahead.

But you get a lot more out of a bondage session when you’re fully aware of what you’re doing when you are doing.

This also applies to the type of touch. When do you touch Ukete with your hands, with your body or with the rope? What types of touch are there, how do they work and when do you use them or consciously withdraw them? When is a touch counted as an assault and how can this be prevented? When is it hard and when is it very gentle?

From the 9 Gates of Osada Ryu, the chapters tachi-Ichi (position) and ma-ai are considered more intensively here. But ki (energy) also plays a major role.
