NawaPedia is an online encyclopedia of Japanese bondage and related kinky activities. At this writing, most of the content of NawaPedia has been translated from SMpedia, the Japanese language sister site, and this work continues. There is a lot of material on SMpedia, so we are always grateful for the help of volunteer translators. If you would like to assist us, please contact the Administrator.
NawaPedia aims to bring information about Japanese SM to a wider audience. Much of this information, because of the language barrier, has heretofore been inaccessible to the majority of non-Japanese interested in the subject.
Nawa means "rope" in Japanese and NawaPedia will be focusing primarily on Japanese rope artists (kinbakushi), writers, photographers, performers, etc.
At this time, we are primarily concentrating on getting the material in Japanese on SMpedia translated into English for NawaPedia. If, however, you are interested in producing original scholarship, we are open to this. The subject, of course, should be related to Japanese SM and the writing must follow the NawaPedia format. We discourage anyone writing an entry about him/herself.
All entries are subject to editing or, if necessary, deletion. Entries must be written from an objective point of view, citing sources whenever applicable. Entries containing self-promotion are subject to editing or deletion.
