Side Note to Minomura and Me:
Reiko Kita's Bound Men

On page 3 of Minōmura and Me, Tadao Chigusa wrote:

“Reiko Kita's art features bound women only. There aren't many male partners sketched
in the scenes.”

While neither statement is really true, bound men do seem to be uncommon in Reiko Kita’s (aka Kō Minōmura’s) art. Since Minōmura is such an influential figure in kinbaku history, I’d like to share a few of his illustrations that show bound men.
