A while ago I stumbled across what looked like the source photograph for this image (there can't be many other beam balancing torments like it on the net)! Unfortunately I've mislaid it again but I'll post it here if I rediscover it. The fence in this image actually looks faked but I think the artist has applied a blurring technique to 'neutralise' it's visual effect. Source discoveries for these pictures are rare which might be down to the clever modifications applied or to their obscure (Japanese?) origins or simply to increasing age which makes all vintage imagery harder and harder to find, modern search engines being firmly focused on the most recent items.
Another striking and simple composition. At first sight it looks like he's kneeling but the shadow bottom right shows he's suspended. Clever placing of the rope anchorage points has produced a believable, demanding pose that is sensual indeed. In this picture and the preceding one, the artist has taken less trouble to accentuate the models muscularity, it's more of a blurring effect. As a result you can almost 'see' the original photograph coming through.
In other pictures by him (not shown here) this effect is even more marked, large areas of the original appearing to be virtually untouched as the originator has concentrated on enhancement of the ropes and sexual areas. These images have an 'unfinished' appearance in comparison to the rest, and vividly demonstrate how the fuzzy, lack lustre greys of the elderly source photos have been completely transformed in the more polished examples, like the one below.
This great picture is rather intimate with the captor engrossed in toying with his captive but in a mild, rather tentative way while his handsome victim nervously tries to pull away. This atmosphere contrasts sharply with the frantic 'tying up' example showing other captors in action in part 1 of this article (image 6).
Being positioned to the side rather than in front of his charge, this captor appears to be working his man for the benefit of us as spectators as much as himself. The threat of the hoisting tackle above them might thus go unremarked by the casual observer but it has the capability to transform this charming dick-tethering moment into an organ-stretching torment.
Notice the interesting feet detail again on the right.

On the other hand this is the only image with a (visible) butt insertion which seems unusual for Japanese erotica these days!
