Davide La Greca - AKA MaestroBD - was born in 1971 in Rome, where he's living and working.
In 90's Davide finds the Bondage out, that opens his path to the BDSM.

Since this Epiphany the decision came to share the culture linked to this delicate subject as an art. So he immediately started to work on the esibitions along with the didactic, obtaining a constant good reaction, in Italy and Abroad.

Today MaestroBD is one of the best shibari teacher in italy, resident performer at “La Regina Nera” (Bologna) and former staff member of “Ritual The Club” and “Martelive” (Roma).
“Boundcon” in Monaco and Austria, “RopeFest” in Saint Petersburg, “Xplore” in Berlin are few of the international presence dates.

But MaestroBD is also an essayist and a writer, he published “Bondage - La via italiana all’arte di legare”, together with Beatrice Gigliuto.
“Legami – Il Bondage all'Italiana” (with Beatrice Gigliuto) and “Roma e Bondage, Storie di Corde nella Capitale” are also his acclaimed works.

And he recently gave MBDCrew to light, a group of specialized artists in various BDSM subjects, and MBDStudio, a multifunctional place where MaestroBD hosts and promotes events, shootings and fetish related castings.

He's, together with Felix Ruckert, Xplore Rome 2015 Art Director.




Water BondageMaestroBD-WS1020716.jpg

We're born in water, linked to life thanks to the Umbilical Cord.
Into the water we usually like to go back to find same emotions and sensations we're afraid we lost.

Being trapped underwater is one of the biggest fears that human beings share, ropes amplifie the restraining sensation, even if we've been living bound to a cord and limiting our movements because of a tight tiny placenta “bag”,
Ropes get tight, when we are in the water, more than usual, they could bite the flesh. And pieces of pleasure can mix together up in the water, during that rude hug.
So water can add the right amount of fear and need for trust in who is caring after us.

Are you ready to fight your terrors and let the water lull you among ropes and love?



Sacred Outdoor Bondage

Our location offers us immaculate woods. A sacred place, that sorrounds us, with trees and rocks, as ancient as our acenstors.
This is a workshop to bind and connect us with Nature, in order to get closer to our roots, and to get together with our ancient parents.
The rope will be the tool that keeps bodies, wood, rock, barks and the Great Goddess Nature together.
Let's worship Nature around us wearing Her colours on our skin, like in a real Sacred Kinky Ritual.
We'll work together on a fusion between bondage and natural elements to build a connection with our ancestors through the Earth who saw them live, love and suffer on it.
