Kuriyama Mui, a member of sexy Japanese idol girl group Ebisu Muscats, has a special skill she normally shows off on stage: She can tie herself up in rope.

Unfortunately for fans in Singapore, they did not see this at the group's concert here yesterday.

Mui, 24, says she had to leave out her sexy little trick because it is associated with deviant sexual acts collectively called BDSM, or bondage and discipline, sadism and masochism and they were advised to tone down the show.

"I usually perform with rope bondage on, but I was told it was better not to do so," she says in Japanese during an interview at Resorts World Sentosa's Hotel Michael, ahead of their concert.
