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

In "Minomura and Me," Tadao Chigusa writes: “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 make up only a small percentage of 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.
