Resumen (es_ES)

El bondage con cuerda, también conocido como shibari o kinbaku, es una práctica incorporada comúnmente asociada con BDSM (acrónimo de Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism, en español, Bondage y Disciplina, Dominación y Sumisión, Sadismo y Masoquismo) en entornos académicos y no académicos. Sin embargo, el BDSM y discursos orientados al sexo no son inherentes a la práctica. Más bien, son solo dos formas potenciales de enmarcar el bondage con cuerdas, cuya pertinencia depende de cómo los practicantes eligen imaginarse a sí mismos y sus prácticas. Sin embargo, como la teoría feminista y queer ha argumentado, la identidad como una construcción social fija a menudo sirve objetivos normativos y regulatorios (Butler, 1990, 1993; Sedgwick, 1990). Basándose en el trabajo de campo de los autores, este artículo argumenta que el bondage con cuerdas funciona a través de relaciones afectivas, las cuales permiten a los practicantes pensarse a sí mismos fuera de estructuras identitarias de conexión, si así lo desean. En lugar de implicarse con problemáticas de las políticas de la identidad, los miembros pueden compartir sensaciones afectivas sentidas a través de la experiencia incorporada, dirigidas tanto hacia la cuerda como hacia otros cuerpos. Además, las percepciones afectivas del tiempo de los practicantes se ven alteradas

por sus experiencias corporales de bondage con cuerda que a menudo producen un estado de flujo (Ambler et al., 2017; Csikszentmihalyi, 1991; Newmahr, 2011). La práctica afectiva del bondage con cuerdas y las corporeidades autorreflexivas múltiples de los practicantes mientras interactúan con y a través de la cuerda incitan a los autores hacia un modelo rizomático de análisis (Deleuze y Guattari, 1987; Massumi, 1987). Tal modelo funciona en contra de las jerarquías de tiempo e identidad, que se desglosan a través de intercambios afectivos. Una comprensión rizomática de los patrones de crecimiento del bondage con cuerdas también puede informar estudios futuros sobre cambios no canónicos que ocurren en la práctica sin necesitar que esos cambios estén relacionados con los orígenes ostensibles del bondage de cuerdas en el Japón feudal, orígenes construidos cronológicamente para validar la existencia de la práctica.

Resumen (en_US)

Rope bondage, also known as shibari or kinbaku, is an embodied practice commonly associated with BDSM (an acronym for Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism) in both academic and non-academic environments. However, BDSM and sex-oriented discourses are not inherent in the practice. Rather, they are only two potential ways of framing rope bondage, the appropriateness of which depends on how practitioners choose to envision themselves and their practices. However, as feminist and queer theory has argued, identity as a fixed social construct frequently serves normative, regulatory aims (Butler, 1990, 1993; Sedgwick, 1990). Drawing upon the authors’ fieldwork, this article argues that rope bondage functions via affective relations, which enable practitioners to think of themselves outside of identitarian structures of connection, if they so choose. Rather than engaging with the problematics of identity politics, members can share affective sensations felt through embodied experience, directed both toward rope and toward other bodies. Furthermore, practitioners’ affective perceptions of time are altered by their corporeal experiences of rope bondage, which often bring about a flow state (Ambler et al., 2017; Csikszentmihalyi, 1991; Newmahr, 2011). The affective practice of rope bondage and practitioners’ multiple, self-reflexive corporealities while interacting with and through the medium of rope prompt the authors toward a rhizomatic model of analysis (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987; Massumi, 1987). Such a model works against hierarchies of time and identity, which are broken down through affective exchanges. A rhizomatic understanding of the growth patterns of rope bondage can also inform future scholarship on non-canonical changes occurring in the practice without necessitating that those changes be linked to the ostensible origins of rope bondage in feudal Japan, origins constructed chronologically to validate the practice’s existence.

Resumen (pt_BR)

A bondage com cordas, também conhecido como shibari ou kinbaku é uma prática construída comumente associado com BDSM (sigla de Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism, em portugues, Bondage e Disciplina, Dominação e Submissão, Sadismo e Masoquismo) em ambientes acadêmicos e não acadêmicos. No entanto, BDSM e discursos orientados para o sexo não são inerentes à prática. Pelo contrário, são apenas duas maneiras possíveis de enquadrar o bondage com cordas, cuja relevância depende de como praticantes escolher a imaginar-se e as suas práticas. No entanto, como a teoria feminista e queer argumentou, a identidade como uma construção social muitas vezes serve objectivos de regulação (Butler, 1990, 1993, Sedgwick, 1990) política fixa e. Com base no trabalho de campo dos autores, este artigo argumenta que a escravidão com cordas atravessa relacionamentos, que permitem que os profissionais pensam em si mesmos identitarias fora estruturas de ligação, se assim o desejarem. Em vez de se envolverem com questões de política de identidade, os membros podem compartilhar sentimentos sentidos através da experiência encarnada, direcionados tanto para a corda quanto para outros corpos. Além disso, as percepções emocionais dos praticantes tempo afetadas por suas experiências pessoais com cativeiro de corda, muitas vezes produzir um estado de fluxo (Ambler et al, 2017. Csikszentmihalyi, 1991; Newmahr, 2011). A prática afetiva da bondage com cordas e múltiplas corporities reflexivos profissionais ao interagir com e através da corda incentivar os autores a um modelo de análise rizoma (Deleuze e Guattari, 1987; Massumi, 1987). Tal modelo trabalha contra as hierarquias de tempo e identidade, que são quebradas por meio de trocas afetivas. Uma compreensão rizomática dos padrões de crescimento em cativeiro com cordas também podem informar futuros estudos de mudanças não-canônicos que ocorrem na prática, sem a necessidade de que essas mudanças estão relacionadas às origens ostensivas de cordas de cativeiro no Japão feudal, origens construídas cronologicamente validar a existência da prática.
