Jon's Bondage Blog

Lately we've been working with some exceptional new people, and I'm looking forward to releasing their scenes in the coming weeks. "Liv: Dangerously!" features three of these bright new stars, and I hope you'll consider taking a look at their performances.



We first worked with Liv Wild https://twitter.com/livwildx back in May, and I posted one of her scenes early for a http://clips4sale.com promotion, using the premise that it was a deleted scene from the "Liv: Dangerously!" feature that I knew I'd be completing later. We booked Ms. Wild again in June and I collected some more scenes for the story, and I still have more unreleased content with her that, again, I can hardly wait to offer to the bondage fans.

After our shoot Lorelei https://twitter.com/BedroomBondage tweeted that she thought Liv was one of the most beautiful women she'd ever worked with. When you consider how many gorgeous ladies we've shot with over the years, that's high praise indeed. This petite beauty is one of our new favorites. She's adorable, quite flexible and while I don't know that she has any personal interest in bondage, she certainly seems to know what we want from our damsels, and she delivers it.

The premise for the feature is it's highlights from an unsold TV pilot for a network noted for its "damsel in distress" themed movies. Not the American Damsels Network, the other one. When you consider some of the unusual premises that have been used for TV pilots (and some shows that have made it onto the air) it would be surprising if somewhere someone didn't make a pilot like that -- other than https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062117/ that is. Ms. Wild was excellent as the titular damsel, and even though her show wasn't picked up, I'd be thrilled to shoot another episode or two with this gorgeous lady if the "pilot" turns out to be popular.



Brooke Beretta https://twitter.com/BrookeBeretta is another mainstream adult performer who listed "bondage" as something she'll do, and she does it quite well.  While a number of the women we've worked with lately seem to have a passing interest in our favorite kink (many seem especially fascinated by the way it looks), Lorelei noted that of all the new people we've hired lately, Ms. Beretta seems to "get it" more than most of them. She was a total joy and contagiously enthusiastic. Her vibrator scene is not part of this video, but when we were preparing to shoot that, I can't recall the last time a model was so delighted about being tied up, gagged and brought to orgasm. In the story Brooke plays a voluptuous, dark-haired billionaire celebrity who's held for ransom, and her captors sure did a good job of showing off her luscious, bound body.  



I was truly impressed by Adira Allure https://twitter.com/AnythingforA 's movie star looks. I guess which movie star would depend on what generation you belong to. Adira told us that quite a few people have noted her resemblance to https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000224/ which I can see, although she reminds me more of a younger https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001732/ And like her celebrity lookalikes, Ms. Allure is quite an actress. In the scenes I got with her, her persona seems more aligned with the "heroine" than the "damsel." That said, she gives some of the most energetic struggles I've seen in quite some time. For those who like the captives to be feisty, Adira's scene is one you'll undoubtedly enjoy.

Because of the revised release schedule, "Liv: Dangerously!" will be available at the American Damsels clips stores http://c4s.com/6571 and http://americandamsels.net in September, and for members of http://americandamsels.com a bit later. It's available for download now through my business partners at http://fmconcepts.us

These days we've been working with some fantastic new women. I would gladly hire most of them again and again. However because of budgetary considerations we can't do that, so we must press on and do the best we can. With that in mind, I'm deeply grateful that the venerable Nimzo came to town and sponsored another shoot with our "Rookie of the Year" Melody Marks https://twitter.com/MelodyMarksxxx This was not a custom shoot for him, but Nimzo was acting as executive producer, so the least I could do was to try to get as many of his favorite elements into the story as I could.

When I started Melody's tale with "Melody Marks, Detective," I was hoping to portray her as an amateur sleuth, in the great tradition of snoopy female investigators that dates back almost 90 years. I also wanted to incorporate some elements from Lorelei's magnum opus, the "To Be Continued" series from the Harmony Concepts http://harmonymax.com era. But hey, why stop there? For the longest time I've wanted to do an homage to John Willie's outdoor post ties, and I believe I'd never find a better candidate for this than Ms. Marks.

In the cliffhanger ending from the previous feature, our sweet damsel was loaded into a plane bound for parts unknown and a decidedly uncertain fate. We find out when she lands that Melody's fallen into the clutches of none other than "The Baron" (Eric Holman, who was good enough to reprise his role from a quarter of a century ago). As a side note, we did still have The Baron's medal-covered vest from the series, but I wasn't going to have him wear it. I figured the famous hat would be enough. But Lorelei insisted that he put the vest on over his black villain shirt, and who am I to argue with the character's creator?

In Lorelei's story from the "TBE series," he was sentenced to life, but wealth and position got him an early release, and now he's out for revenge on Cathy Drew (Catharine Beaumont). However, since she's disappeared he settled for vengeance against Cathy's only known relative: Melody Marks!

At the last moment, our plucky damsel was saved by a mysterious masked figure. In another reference to Harmony history, Melody's rescuer turns out to be a former superhero known as "The Enigma." His good-guy days long behind him, the dark figure has decided to train Melody to be a valuable bondage slave. And so Melody went through some training which included high heels, gloves and black sheer-to-waist pantyhose. Otherwise it wouldn't have been a Nimzo project. Ms. Marks gave an outstanding performance throughout, and she did especially well with the dildo-sucking and the vibrator scenes.

"The Perils of Melody" was an unexpected departure from where I thought her detective story-arc was originally headed. I hope it won't be too long until I can have this gorgeous blonde holding a flashlight while she sneaks through spooky attics and then get bound and gagged and try to attract attention while tapping her high heels against a locked door. You know, the classics.

I'd like to congratulate Savannah Sixx https://twitter.com/TheSavannahSixx on becoming a Penthouse Pet. Over the years I've had the honor and pleasure of working with a number of Pets, and aside from being beautiful and sexy (a requisite for the position), they've all been sweet, genuinely nice women. And Savannah is certainly a wonderful addition to their ranks.

I included this little fantasy with Savannah after Melody's story because of the fetishy style of wardrobe she wore while she was tied up, which I felt was thematic with the main story. This particular scene was the last one we shot that day. Since this was the first time we worked together, I didn't have anything specific planned for the afternoon. So for the final set we went into the wardrobe room and she chose her outfit for the scene. Ideally, I would've had Ms. Sixx wearing some nice black boots for the improvised story, but she has small (size 6.5) feet, so we had to find some appropriate heels for her ensemble in wardrobe.

As I'd mentioned previously, Savannah was fascinated by the way she looks when she was tied up and kept looking down at her bonds. To remedy that Lorelei set up a full-length mirror so this long-haired beauty could see herself. Later as I was editing this scene I noticed that every now and then the gorgeous brunette can be observed catching a glimpse of herself. But who could blame her? She's totally mesmerizing!

NOTE: Some of the images in this blog entry are not mine. However, since they are being used in a commentary, it is my firm belief that this falls under the umbrella of Fair Use. If any of the copyright holders feel differently and ask me to remove any of them, I will do so immediately.



Some time ago this pathetic copy-artist posted a drawing he'd done, which looked very familiar to me since it was from a scene in "Steampunk Spies" https://clips4sale.com/6571/8612607 Since he stated it was a commissioned work, he was actually paid for it. Nonetheless the model (in this case Arielle Lane https://twitter.com/MissArielleLane ) and the owner/creator of the copyrighted source work (me) got no compensation, no acknowledgment, not even so much as a thank-you. And my work was used without permission. So I have nothing but contempt for these untalented parasites.

Later I encountered a similar piece of commissioned "artwork" that used a photo of Carissa Montgomery https://twitter.com/CarissaBound by Ropexpert https://twitter.com/Ropexpert and my annoyance and intolerance for these crap-artists surfaced again and I felt compelled to call out this bullshit on twitter.



Much to my surprise Matt Williams https://twitter.com/MWRigger responded with a comment and a photo of his significant other Dee Williams https://twitter.com/DeeWilliamsXXX side-by-side with the work of another ungrateful copy-artist.



I don't agree with Mr. Williams on one main point. I think the infringement of bondage photographers and producers by these so-called "artists" is much more prevalent than the other way around. After all, artists don't have the restrictions that those of us who produce real-life images and video do. Their figures can look precisely how they want, assume any position, be dressed in any wardrobe and placed in any setting no matter how fantastic, limited only by their own abilities and imagination. We who work with cameras are severely constrained by shrinking budgets and the human limitations of the models. Because of that, I don't know of many bondage producers who go to great effort and  expense to recreate someone else's artwork. In the past some higher-end photographers like Jim Weathers https://twitter.com/jweathersbc have done remarkable recreations of John Willie's work, but even those can never be perfect because of the way Willie stylized the proportions of his figures. So I believe the instances of artists getting taken advantage of by photographers are pretty few and far between. But if you've got any examples, I'd like to hear about them.

I would bet most of those artists whose works are being used for reference by photographers are probably not contemporary. My apologies (or sympathies) to all the living artists, but I don't see photographers using their work for inspiration. When I did my homage to "The Artless Heiress" by Robert William Meyers (who died almost 50 years ago),  it wouldn't have surprised me if the artwork had gone into public domain by now. But in any case I knew it would be impossible for me to recreate that image to the degree where it would be a copyright infringement -- if that's even applicable for photography and videos. I Googled it, and I couldn't find any mention of that, although I did find lots of legal discussion of artists ripping off photographers. Below is a side-by-side comparison of the aforementioned Arielle Lane with Ashley Lane https://twitter.com/AshleyLaneXXX for that homage seen in "The Lois Legacy." With Lorelei's invaluable assistance, I think we did a pretty good updated approximation. But I'd never be able to get nearly as close to the source material as those garbage artists who trace photos and screen-captures.



By the way,  over the years I've seen a number of examples of other artists ripping off Meyer's famous work. But because artists frequently "borrow" from each other, I don't know if The Saturday Evening Post ever bothered to take any legal action against any of them.



At this point I would like to give a shout-out to a few of the contemporary artists who I feel successfully bring their bondage vision to life in two mediums. It's rare that someone can create a photo that looks so much like their art (or is that the other way around?). Among the best are Franco Saudelli http://www.francosaudelli.com/ Dave Annis https://twitter.com/DaveAnnis60 and Chromebinder https://twitter.com/ChromeBinder Kudos, guys! Thanks for showing it can be done.

As for Mr. Williams final comment: Does it matter? In the global sense, sure, not that much. But I think it's indicative of how the rights of those who create anything that can be made into a digital file are being eroded. Copyright laws have become meaningless for the individual, and the average person can't afford a lawyer to properly deal with those who infringe on their rights. It kills the motivation to create or be innovative. In the long run, that's bad for everyone.

We always love working with Carissa Montgomery https://twitter.com/CarissaBound She's simply one of the best, and a lot of fun. For a while now when she would come out here to work, I'd cast her in the ongoing role of "Action Lady." However after all these adventures with that character, I'd decided it was time to move on and bring the Action Lady saga to a close. Well, as much as anything ends in the age of sequels. I suppose if a custom buyer wanted Carissa to reprise her crimebusting alter-ego, I'd be happy to bring that fantasy to life.



But for now, I wanted to make Action Lady's final story interesting. In the reality of the narrative (much like our own) there is no such actual person as "Action Lady," and Carissa is a bored secretary who writes fan-fiction about the character under the pseudonym "HotBustyBlonde33." I believe it's only a coincidence that Carissa looks so much like Action Lady, and that her boss bears a strong resemblance to the villain of her story. However, in a nod to that classic movie about a daydreamer whose fantasy and waking lives seem to merge, the lines between Carissa's stories and reality get blurred.

In one segment, our buxom beauty gets cleavegagged and is tied standing to the back of a car in what's presented as a busy city street. I wish I could've done that a bit more convincingly, however the budget to rent a movie studio backlot and use green-screen technology to sell the illusion was not available so we had to wing it. The reason I wanted to do this scene, though, was because I'd read an interview with Carissa from a while back and she mentioned that particular scenario as one of her personal fantasies. And as I'd mentioned earlier, I enjoy bringing fantasies to life when I can.

But even if you're not a fan of Action Lady and don't care how her story ends, Carissa gives an outstanding performance in all her scenes and she's sexy as all get-out.

On May 24th Eric Holman http://fmconcepts.us Lorelei https://twitter.com/BedroomBondage and I had a "Three Amigos" shoot with lovely Nia Nacci https://twitter.com/NiaNaccixxx Much as usual, Lorelei kicked off our afternoon with a "forced strip" scene. Nia portrayed a prospective private nurse for a mysophobic billionaire, and she was compelled to disrobe to show she was clean and disease-free. Nia looks fantastic in the uniform, and even better out of it. You can see this clip here: https://clips4sale.com/16221/21547113

After Eric shot his scene for FM Concepts http://fm1.surfnetcorp.com/acbuild/showdetl.cfm?&DID=20&Product_ID=20739 I got to direct Nia for the remainder of the afternoon. The two-scene story was later entitled "The Tapegagged Princess." I usually like to use a variety of gags on the new models when I can (and she'd already done a tapegag for Eric), however poor Nia had gone to the dentist that morning. Out of consideration for her comfort, and not wanting to mess up the work she'd just had done, cleavegags and especially ballgags were out of the question. Bad news for the fans of those, but good news for tapegag fans, especially the ones who are fond of microfoam tape. Two reasons for that: for one thing they look great on her, but also the adhesive is a bit gentler for the skin of this poor woman who had to have one tapegag after another that day.



As always, I like to start slowly with a new model. However I quickly observed that Ms. Nacci seemed to be noticeably engaged by the more involved bondage. I suspect she found the initial "classic position" kind of boring, although I thought her legs looked great when she was tied up that way. But once we went to the fold-tie for the second part of the scene, she seemed much more amused.  For the conclusion of the story the dark-haired beauty was stripped down to her panties for a frogtie that became an elbows-together hogtie. Nia seemed quite pleased when instead of doing the usual tapegag that she'd had twice before that day, I did one that covered her chin as well. I guess the challenge for next time would be finding more unusual things that would capture Nia's imagination as well as her body.

When we worked with Savannah Sixx https://twitter.com/TheSavannahSixx it was an atypically cool late-spring day, and the heat in the studio wasn't working. So we stayed in one set for the afternoon and hoped the lights would be enough to keep Ms. Sixx comfortable.  Happily, she's a trouper and didn't complain about the temperature. In fact, I think she may have been a little too warm when Lorelei bundled her up for a strip scene at a ski resort, which you can find here: https://clips4sale.com/16221/21582431



I got three unrelated sets with Savannah. Since there was a secretarial sort of theme to this feature, I included her first vignette for me. Again, we like to start easy with the new models, so I did a simple chair-tie with her. Savannah looks wonderful, and I'd recommend this clip for fans of bondage in streetwear, and bandana gag (and layered gag) fans. But interestingly enough, as the afternoon went on, I felt we did more interesting things. I would elaborate, but I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. But I will say for the last hour we went into the wardrobe room and I asked her to pick out something she liked and Savannah chose a sexy leather-and-chains outfit. Wait till you see her in it -- Wow!

One more thing about the stunning Ms. Sixx -- it just came back to mind as I'm editing her scenes. I don't know if she has any personal interest in bondage, however Lorelei noticed early on that she seemed fascinated by the ropes and restraints on her body and she kept looking down at them. So she set up a mirror for Savannah. I guess she's as enthralled by the way she looks tied up as we are.

This feature has already been posted for members of http://americandamsels.com and is currently available for download at http://fmconcepts.us The HD version is coming soon to my clips stores: http://c4s.com/6571 and http://americandamsels.net

I feel very lucky that I got to work with Melody Marks https://twitter.com/MelodyMarksxxx again so soon after our first shoot. I believe this lady has enormous potential, and (I hope) a very bright future in the adult and fetish industry.

It's not very often these days that we have the budget for a two-model shoot, but we managed to swing it not long ago (thanks, Lorelei!), and I chose superstar Darla Crane https://twitter.com/Darla_Crane to pair with Melody. We love Darla, and she's still one of the best-selling models in my stores. I also thought our "Rookie of the Year" might pick up some of the finer points of bondage modeling and some tips for working in the adult industry from one the best ever. And as a bonus, Darla is a really good rigger, so I got a hot, lengthy scene of her tying up Melody. Luckily, they seemed to have some chemistry, too, and it made for a very enjoyable afternoon.



It was a staggered shoot, so I got two sets with our stars. I wanted to begin a story with Melody as an amateur detective, sort of like an updated version of a certain famous sleuth who, coincidentally enough, I recently learned is going to be updated yet again for TV. And as you probably would've guessed, Ms. Marks (a 21st Century fox) had never heard of that fictional detective from days gone by.

As the story begins, Melody dresses up in a Camp Scout uniform to infiltrate the home of rogue agent Darla, who immediately sees through her scheme. Our heroine is taken captive, bound, cleavegagged and strip-searched by the agent, who finds the surveillance device Melody was planning to use to spy on her. Melody is hogtied and left to struggle while Agent Darla tries to find out who she really is.

Then when Darla's old nemesis Dr. Caesar Beringei suddenly enters, the agent uncharacteristically faints at the sight of the villainous ape-man. Then both of the gorgeous damsels are ballgagged and locked up in handcuffs and leg-irons, and left in dire peril.

Of course they escape, but only because the inept agent known only as "Paul" comes in to collect Melody. But he takes advantage of Darla's helpless position and subjects her to further humiliation at his hands later. This involves a powerful vibrator, and it marks Darla's first forced orgasm for American Damsels. It's definitely worth seeing.

The other star of this feature is busty beauty Bunny Colby https://twitter.com/bunnycolby who plays Melody's friend who's taken captive by Paul and he uses her to lure Melody into this orchestrated trap. Bunny is mainly a mainstream adult performer, although she has done some work for a couple of other fetish producers. And she makes a fantastic sexy secretary in bondage.



Ms. Colby also starred as "Bunnyrella, Space Adventuress!" (a loose parody of a 1960s-era sci-fi heroine who, again, our damsel hadn't heard of) for a brief story that was released directly to the American Damsels clips stores https://www.clips4sale.com/studio/6571/american-damsels-by-jon-woods https://www.americandamsels.net/ as well as for a scene for Lorelei's stripping store https://www.clips4sale.com/studio/16221/stripping-by-lorelei

The "Melody Marks, Detective" saga will be continuing soon, so keep an eye out for it!

Somehow I've managed to survive another year in this crazy business that I love. Once again, my undying gratitude to the paying customers who have supported me all this time. I'm humbled by your loyalty.
 
JonWoods by JonWoods @
Let's start with some trivia about the title of the "Policewoman In Distress" video. The main story of the feature was a custom video (and I'll get back to that in a moment) which was originally entitled "Hostile Abduction" by the buyer. However "abduction" is one of those words on Visa's "Forbidden List" and thus not acceptable for any of the sites selling the clips of this feature. Knowing that, I was going to call it "Policewoman In Peril." As an aside, some outsider observed long ago that we fetish people seem to love alliteration in our titles, and that's certainly proven to be true. However, my business partners at http://fmconcepts.us had previously released a video entitled "Policewoman's Peril," and we wanted to avoid any confusion, so I changed it at the last minute.

Next I'd like to give a little history. If it gets too boring, just scroll on down. Years ago when I was living in New York and newly divorced, I was lonely, bored and broke. So I spent a lot of my spare time creating mediocre art, writing letters and sometimes recording VHS tapes of TV bondage scenes which I sent to http://harmonymax.com as well as to Allen Marburger, author of the book "Bondage Fantasies in Popular Entertainment."

Because the letters to Harmony Concepts were positive and showed some writing ability, I was ultimately offered a life-changing job opportunity from Robert Q. Harmon. But before that, Mr. Marburger put me in touch with Brent Smith of Chivalry Video, who subsequently introduced me (via phone) to David Knight https://twitter.com/ImDavidKnight and Ken Scott http://www.aesproductions.com/ This was, by the way, before I was Jon Woods* and before Ken Scott was Ken Scott. David Knight was already David Knight, though not as well-known and shooting his storyline bondage videos for a significantly smaller audience. As a reminder, this was in the pre-internet days, when getting in touch with another bondage enthusiast was incredibly rare, and downright impossible for many. The odds that we three phone-buddies would later all become bondage producers seem so unlikely that if you read it in a novel you'd think it was stretching the suspension of disbelief a bit too far.

Over the years, we three producers have shot a number of custom videos for Mr. Smith. Because we'd been talking to him for such a long time, we were all well acquainted with his preferences. I hope of all the videos he's commissioned from any number of producers (and there have been a lot of them) that we did some of the best jobs of realizing his vision. And his clothed-damsel adventures have sold pretty well for the three of us.

I've remained friends with Mr. Knight and Mr. Scott over the years. I don't chat with David as often as I should, but Ken and I are pretty close and still talk regularly. Over time we drifted away from Brent Smith. There's no animosity. It's just that while we were more involved in video production, his primary focus remained on mainstream bondage scenes.  The three ropesketeers could talk shop and sympathize over the highs and lows of the business, but Brent wasn't interested in any of that, and eventually we parted ways.

So I was a little surprised when he recently contacted me on http://fetlife.com and asked about doing another custom video. We had to go back and forth a little about certain details and overcome some scheduling issues. Our star, Ashley Lane https://twitter.com/AshleyLaneXXX is in high demand so we had to wait until we could get a day when she and our second villain Eric Holman https://twitter.com/FMConceptsinc were both available.



But when the day finally arrived, it turned out to be a rather long and tiring shoot, but the results were great! Since the custom script called for guns (another thing forbidden by Visa and consequently by the merchant banks) we had to shoot some bits twice. We also had to extend a couple of the scenes to include some nudity, which was not in the original script but I felt was necessary for the public release.

Ashley, a "Damsel Of The Year" award winner, was wonderful and tolerant as always. She had to be briefly carried a couple of times for the story, which is why we had to enlist Eric. (Back surgery ended my damsel-carrying days some years ago.) He's in fantastic shape for his age, still, I'm awed by her trust in us for going along this while she was tied up and helpless.

I should also mention that Ashley looked great in her uniform. The screencap I posted of it on my  https://www.deviantart.com/jonwoods account has been one of the most popular new entries in a long time.

If you're fan of "policewoman in bondage" scenarios, I think you'll be very happy with Ashley's interpretation of the role. They just don't get much better than her.

The second story of this feature was my first shoot with a lady whom I suspect will win the "Rookie Of The Year" award: Melody Marks https://twitter.com/MelodyMarksxxx Even though Ms. Marks, at the beginning of our shoot, described herself as a "rope bunny," I had the honor of directing her very first bondage shoot.

Since Ms. Marks admittedly has a personal interest in the material, she had an innate understanding of what I wanted from her performance, and her performance totally floored us. I wanted to shoot a story that would've been for Clips4Sale's monthly theme (which I believe was "Spring Break" or bunnies or something like that) so we did "Spring Break Bondage." Although I must admit I was not paying strict attention to the dates of that promotion, and by the time I had the story edited and ready for release the deadline for the promotion had passed. Dang.

In any case, Melody was absolutely adorable as a bondage bunny (nabbed by the evil "Coach"). She got to hop around looking for the handcuff key hidden in one of the many Easter eggs in the Coach's office, and she was incredible for her first forced orgasm scene. Her excitement for the scene was visibly noticeable, which is always a nice bonus for the viewer. Ms. Marks was also outstanding as the luckless hitchhiker for the opening of the tale. She was tied to a car and subjected to a wet T-shirt treatment, and when it came time for the nudity I could've cut her camisole top open or ripped it, but she requested that it be ripped because it was "hotter." Ya just gotta love a model with that attitude.

I can't say enough good things about Melody. She's gorgeous, enthusiastic, flexible and she has a vibrant energy that comes along very rarely. She's mostly doing mainstream adult work but I think her passion for kinkier stuff will make a name for her in our little circle as well. I've had the pleasure of working with her twice more since our first meeting, and I'm looking forward to creating more scenes with her that you (and she) will find exciting in the near future.



(* I was going by "Tantalus" in those days. It was sort of a take-off on another Harmony contributor of that era who went by "Atreus," as well as a reflection of the feeling that satisfaction was always just slightly out of my reach.)
JonWoods by JonWoods @
These days it seems that the style for our videos has drifted away from stories, and gone more to the free-standing scenes (otherwise known as "vignettes") in consideration of our customers who are buying their bondage entertainment by the minute. Nonetheless I still like doing stories when I can, even if I have to shoot them one bit at a time and fit the pieces together later. "The Black Hoodie Files" is one of those loosely assembled stories, part of a larger bondage soap opera that (I hope) can still be appreciated in all it's individual chapters.



When Lorelei https://twitter.com/BedroomBondage and I got to work with Gia Milana https://twitter.com/TheGiaMilana back on February 7th, we didn't know that she'd previousy shot with http://fmconcepts.us under the name of Shay Evans. But she's made some changes in her life, and chosen a new name to go along with them. And as Shakespeare would remind us,  "a rose by any other name..." This was good news for us as Gia is an experienced performer, she knows the genre and thus didn't require a lot of direction. She also looks freakin' amazing, so you couldn't ask for more, although Ms. Milana did delight us later in the shoot with a real surprise.

Much as usual, Lorelei got the first hour with this stunning brunette. My sweetie shot a Valentine's Day-themed forced strip skit with her, and Gia was totally adorable as the Lovey-Gram Lady who's compelled to reveal all, as you can see here: https://clips4sale.com/16221/21018765 

I didn't plan anything elaborate for our first shoot together, which is usually the standard procedure these days. Instead, I wanted to focus on Gia's beauty and remarkable assets, so I got a trio of outwardly unrelated scenes, although I did connect them to the ongoing "Black Hoodie" storyline later. The unexpected bonus we got from Gia is she's in that highly sought-after minority of women who have amazing shoulder flexibility, and she can get her elbows to touch behind her back with no problem. Of course like any responsible producer, we were cautious not to abuse this rare talent. But her elbows-together hogtie is really hot.



Eric Holman, Lorelei and I did a "3 Amigos" shoot with the lovely Maya Kendrick https://twitter.com/mayakendrickx 13 days later. Ms. K is a wonderfully expressive performer, and she did a fantastic job with her forced stripping scene for Lorelei  https://clips4sale.com/16221/21088787 as well as bondage scenes for my sweetie and FM Concepts. I got the final hour with this luscious redhead, and I'm grateful she didn't totally hate me afterwards. Since I'd decided the next feature was going to be a "Black Hoodie" story, I was resigned to the fact he'd have to make an appearance. It's always preferable if I'm going to have on-screen interaction to show some rigging. However, The Black Hoodie is usually wearing gloves these days, which makes tying a bit more challenging. So I decided to go with the military-grade zip ties instead of rope. This isn't exactly a picnic either, as trying to pull the ends through with gloves on results in a lot of fumbling and outtakes. Moreover, the zip ties are always completely unyielding, and even the ones designed for use on people have a tendency to have uncomfortably sharp edges. Also, unlike rope or handcuffs or leather straps, they can't be loosened. So after an active take, we'd cut and Maya (who's a real trouper and not a wimp by any stretch) had to tell us it was too tight, and we'd have to snip her out and apply another pair. I hope she believed me when I said I don't usually put the models through that kind of agony, at least not the first time around.

I should also note that Ms. Kendrick is an outstanding actress, and she gave one of the best damsel performances I've seen in quite a while. She can convey vulnerability better than, well, most models in memory. I'll have to keep that in mind for the next time she's here.



Lola Pearl https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/thelolapearlshow/ is doing more mainstream modeling these days, so we're genuinely honored that she's still shooting bondage and fetish work with FM Concepts, Lorelei and me. Lola has the most amazing combination of vibrant energy and incredible sexiness that works so well with what we're producing. We shot outside for most of the day, including Lorelei's Valentine's Day "sudden strip" scene with her. https://clips4sale.com/16221/20945141 (I got to be the obnoxious reporter on the scene for that one.) And my sweetie tied up Ms. Pearl in the back of Eric's car for a future Bedroom Bondage release.

My scene with Lola was also in the car, and I'd like to thank Eric Holman for helping out with that. It's another "True Bondage Tale," and I'd been planning to do this story for quite a while, collecting all the necessary wardrobe and everything. The dialogue of the skit was mostly authentic, often lifted verbatim from the news reports. Unfortunately, and this was heartbreaking, it was a windy January day and the relentless breeze played havoc with the audio. So all that bona fide dialog is frequently hard to make out. Nonetheless, Lola running around outside, naked, bound and gagged certainly makes up for any other technical shortcomings of the story.

I really love working with Arielle Lane https://twitter.com/MissArielleLane She's a fascinating, brilliant person (just follow her on twitter and you'll see what I mean) as well as being in the top ten of the most bondage-positive models I've ever had the pleasure to work with throughout my career. Since I only get to work with her a couple of times a year, I always try to make our shoots fun and enjoyable. Whenever possible, I'll try to do something new, or at least something we haven't already done previously.

Knowing that Arielle loves to be in most kind of restraint, I thought I'd make use of some of the more fetishy items that have been given to Lorelei. They're the kind of thing I would hope Ms. Lane appreciates, as well as being something we don't normally use in our videos. It helps make things a little more interesting, I think. Knowing we'd be utilizing these items determined the story we were shooting that day. One item is an aluminum "fiddle." I don't think I'd ever used one in a video previously, which would be a pretty rare thing for me to say these days. I asked Arielle if she'd ever been in one and she thought for a moment and said "I don't think I've been in one for a video."  

Because of my lack of experience with fiddles, I didn't realize how unyielding they are, and later when I was editing the footage I was amazed that Arielle was so game when it came to struggling and rolling around while she was locked into it. If I ever use that again, I'll definitely direct the scene so it's less punishing. I hope she wasn't badly bruised later.

Earlier in this blog I'd mentioned that if a model has a profile on http://fetlife.com I'll check to see if they have any preferences listed, and if they do I'll make an attempt to incorporate those things into the shoot. I always ask the model about those specific things beforehand, of course. However while I was discussing this with Ms. Lane, Lorelei wasn't in the room. More on that in a moment.

We all have to make allowances in things like logic for the sake of our fantasies, particularly when shooting them for video release. Nonetheless, one of the things I enjoy doing when I can is making fun of the sillier lapses of logic that frequently show up in our genre. One that bothers me is when a woman refuses to open her mouth for a gag and her antagonist then pinches her nose and she opens her mouth to breathe, and subsequently gets gagged. I mean, why doesn't she just breathe through her clenched teeth? So I was planning to skewer this practice, as discussed with Arielle before we started shooting. When I pinched her nose she didn't cooperate in the normal fashion, I slapped her. I did this because she'd listed "face-slapping" as one her fetishes. However Lorelei was shocked, as I've never struck a woman like that before. I have to give my sweetie credit for holding the camcorder steady, because she thought she'd involuntarily jumped when she saw that.

By the way, as slapping is not something I ever do, I was probably not very good at it (sorry, Arielle) and I didn't strike her very hard. I hope it won't ruin the scene for viewers if I tell you I had to sweeten the slap sound. It's not "Three Stooges" level, but it was enhanced.

Arielle also listed "forehead kissing" as one of her faves, so I incorporated that into the story, and it did sort of make sense in the context of the scene. That is also a rarity. Lorelei is the only other person I've ever kissed for a video, and kisses in general have only ever appeared in a couple of my other stories. It's not the kind of thing that easily fits into the "damsel in distress" scenarios.

I should also note that the day we shot, it was cold and rainy here in L.A. I was still pondering what scenes we'd be shooting and I told Arielle I thought about tying her up outside to the post, naked in the rain. I saw her eyes flash, and I think the idea appealed to her. However, concerns about the neighbors being non-consensually exposed to our scene and protecting the camcorders from the rain kept us from going ahead with this plan. See? I try to be mean and make the models suffer for my art, but it doesn't always work out for me. As I write that, I realize some producers really do feel that way and the casual reader might not recognize that was a joke.

For many years I had this tradition that I'd shoot a model I liked on my birthday. But after this didn't work out a couple of times and we had to greatly cut back our shooting schedule, I gave up on that custom. However this year we worked with the amazing Alex Coal https://twitter.com/AlexxxCoal the day before my birthday, and it was like bringing the tradition back. I can't say enough good things about Ms. Coal. In many ways she reminded me of some of the best models from the golden days of Harmony Concepts http://www.harmonymax.com/ Not only is she gorgeous, she can act, improvise and she understands the fetishes. In some ways she reminds me of Ariel Cole (even aside from the homonym last names), something about her look. I think it might be her mouth. I may need to gag her a few more times to be sure.



Ms. Coal is a rising star on the mainstream adult scene, and that's not at all surprising. I hadn't heard of her previously, so I didn't know she's already had a few years of doing fetish modeling. And I couldn't have foreseen how good she is. Whenever we're working with new models, we always have to keep things open as we're still finding out about them. With that in mind, the Valentine's Day-themed story I'd planned was cute but not especially complex. But Lorelei and I were both floored when Alex hit it out of the park. Lorelei commented at the time she's really looking forward to the story I write for Alex time for the next time we're together. Of course, I believe she could make the most lackluster story shine.

Alex is also remarkably flexible. I'm sorry that because of running time limitations I had to cut out her elbows-together hogtie from the feature, but that scene will be released shortly at my clips stores (and later for members, of course). Alex is local, and she's stated that she's open to custom video work. If you're in the market for one, you can send me a message here: https://twitter.com/AmericanDamsels

Every now and then when I'm looking for an idea for the next video, I'll go through the folder of new potential script ideas. Sometimes one of those ideas will seem very promising, and (in a case like this one) I'll be lucky enough to get a model who can bring it to life and really make it work. In this case, it was the idea of "harpaxophilia" or "the erotic arousal from the thought of or act of being burglarized or robbed." River Fox https://twitter.com/RiverFoxxx mostly does mainstream adult work — well, that's true for most of the people we're working with these days — and I think that helped her convey the lustful longing in the story. She really did an outstanding job begging the burglar to take advantage of her, and that was all ad-libbed by Ms. Fox. That little segment is almost worth the price of admission for the scene, or at least adds to its value and charm. Having a buxom, tied up babe with movie star looks delivering the lines certainly helps.



I'm sure the sock fans noticed that River wore some adorable, snuggly socks for her hogtie and vibrator scenes. The sock fans probably feel they're not getting enough love from the majority of bondage producers, so I hope they'll enjoy these segments. To be honest, though, it wasn't planned. Not long before our busty damsel had her shoot with https://twitter.com/BedroomBondage and me, River had worked at a convention, and the long hours standing and walking in high heels had done terrible things to her feet. I know our customers are usually pretty forgiving about things like that, but we realized it would've been distracting so we decided to do a favor for the sock enthusiasts.



In this story, the security guard who runs afoul of the burglar was played by Kendra Spade  https://twitter.com/KendraSpade This stunning brunette is another mainstream adult performer who's having some fun with fetish work. This was, I believe, her first experience with Western-style bondage. When I was tying her up for the uniform bondage scene, she told us this was the first time her legs had ever been bound in a parallel position. Ha! Those other producers don't know what they missed. Kendra's legs looks great like that!

Like River, she did a fantastic job of ad-libbing, particularly for the forced strip segment. That was a long POV segment, and it probably could've been even longer but I didn't check with Ms. Spade beforehand if she'd had much experience with handcuffs. Being a normal person, she hadn't, of course. So we had to stop and give her a quick tutorial on how to apply them. But after that Kendra did a wonderful job with her vibrator scene. She was in the moment, so I didn't want to cut and remind her to keep her teeth closed on the bandana. I hope the viewers will accept this as a real moment in the fantasy.

In the lingerie bondage scene, we couldn't help but notice Kendra's feet have remarkably high arches, or what Lorelei referred to as "Brody arches." The old-timers will remember Brody, the rest of you will have to do some searching. But we did remember to show off her feet to Eric Holman at the end of the shoot, so we hope Ms. Spade will be doing some foot fetish work with https://twitter.com/FMConceptsinc before too long.

"Ms. Fox's Fetish" is now available at FM Concepts http://fm1.surfnetcorp.com/acbuild/showprod_download.cfm?&DID=20&CATID=2&ObjectGroup_ID=2708 and at my clips stores https://www.clips4sale.com/studio/6571/american-damsels-by-jon-woods and https://www.americandamsels.net/en/ and later on for members at http://americandamsels.com/
Harpaxophilia never looked so good!
