Andy Buru

People often ask why one would like to be tied or to tie another person. The answer is always vulnerability – in the polarity between surrender and holding power. When done in a consensual and loving way, it empowers intimacy, healing, and growth.

Andy is a student of theatre, a medical massage therapist, a former organisational coach, a conscious kinkster, and a teacher of European and Japanese rope bondage. During his fifteen years of sexuality and creativity he has been a slave, an owner, a hedonist, a purist, a magician, and a slut.

Bound Bodywork – is a therapeutic rope bondage practice I developed in 2016, built on a decade of experience. It springs from the Japanese rope art of Kinbaku infused with modern modalities that work with trauma therapy, consent, and sexuality.
