I'm just guessing, because of all the dickwads who are spamming it.  If you ever see any of these spam messages, please feel free to contact the spammers and ask them why they're advertising on a bondage blog.

On Saturday Lorelei and I celebrated our 19th anniversary.  We've had a quite a few of these now, and some have been more memorable than others.  I'm happy to report this was one of our better ones.  

It was miserably hot, so we tried to spend as little time outside as possible.  Nonetheless, we did a little shopping.  My sweetie bought me a new top hat http://www.hatsofstyle.com/ since the old one's been showing some wear (and sweat stains) after all these years.  One of the young employees at the hat store wondered how I could wear out a top hat.  Lorelei thought I wasn't being completely honest when I explained that it was almost 20 years old I wore it almost every Halloween and "every other situation where it'd be appropriate to wear a top hat."  I guess she thought I should've added that this included wearing it when I was the villain for bondage videos.

We had a wonderful dinner http://www.yelp.com/biz/szechuwan-garden-restaurant-simi-valley  and then we had a fun and productive time shooting in our hotel room until the wee hours of the morning.  Apparently we were inspired by the opportunity to shoot in a different place for a change.  The difficulty in shooting somewhere else is you always seem to forget something (like gags, for example), or have to make due with what you've brought.  More on that in a moment.

Whenever we're in a hotel, Lorelei likes to bring along a maid uniform as it only seems natural for the setting.  Our naughty maid was caught stealing, and so spent some time doing penance while tied up and tapegagged.  Since our suite was spacious, Lorelei got to hop around for the first segment.  Unfortunately, the only heels she brought were mismatched.  They were the correct size, but one shoe had a higher heel than the other.  Nonethelss, my babe's a real trouper and even though it required a lot of extra effort on her part, she managed to get through the scene.  

If I recall correctly, after that I tied her to a chair, which was rather interesting when we went to the frogtie part.  Although it turned out to be a little more challenging for her when I turned the chair on its side.  Then Lorelei put on a black slip and she was tied to a footstool and subsequently rolled all over the suite.  She was also stored under the desk for awhile, which she found very amusing for some reason.  

The next morning we got a couple more scenes, involving some shiny lingerie and a vibrator.  I also hogtied her for one segment, which isn't something we do too often these days.  In all, we had a great time.  And I'd imagine you'll be able to see some of these fun moments before long on http://bedroombondage.com and at Lorelei's clips store http://clips4sale.com/412

I've had a number of really enjoyable shoots lately, and a couple of them had an unexpected similarity.  Back on August 24th Lorelei and I had our first shoot with Sasha Sobe https://fetlife.com/users/162969 and we had a lot of fun working with Sasha and her guy, phototcklr https://fetlife.com/users/1244699  There's something that's just so exhilarating and pleasant about working with enthusiastic, like-minded people.  And I felt quite honored that Sasha agreed to do a vibrator scene for me.  

These days when we work with a model for the first time, we prefer to do it as a single-model shoot so we have an adequate opportunity to get to know her.  But due to a scheduling fluke, we worked with two models for the first time on August 26th.  Brea Bennet https://twitter.com/realbreabennett is a gorgeous blonde from Phoenix who had already worked with FM Concepts.  I'd wanted to work with her for some time, and that was the first opportunity we'd had to hire her.  Leggy beauty Mia Vallis https://fetlife.com/users/2207527 is an up-and-coming model from Atlanta who contacted me, and the 26th was her only open date when we could shoot with her.  

Luckily, Brea and Mia got along very well.  Once again, it's always a pleasure to work with enthusiastic people.  The ladies had wonderful chemistry, and I liked what I'd shot with them so much I quickly put it as the second feature on my current video release http://www.fmconcepts.us/product.cfm?objectgroup_ID=2069&group=bondage  Now, what was a little unusual about this shoot was the (literal) climax of the story.  Our sexy cheerleaders were tied down to the bed crotch-to-crotch with vibrators and tapegagged, and they both gave outstanding performances.  However, I thought they were all finished and I said my final line for the story.  But our randy damsels let us know that they were up for a bonus round with their buzzy co-stars.  And who am I to deny a lady (or two) the opportunity to have another bondage orgasm?  So we turned on the lights, cameras, vibrators and models for the second coming.  Okay, it might have been the third or fourth.  You'll have to watch the video and make your own decision.  But since I've been shooting bondage vibrator scenes, this was the first time the models had asked me if they could go for the extra credit.

Three days later I worked with Addie Juniper https://fetlife.com/users/26614 (who's also from Atlanta, coincidentally enough).  Addie's a true professional, and I shot some wonderful video with her, including a two-scene story of the re-emergence of the evil Dr. Stephanie Kahn.  For the final set I tied her to the bed, and she was tapegagged for her vibrator scene.  Addie treated us to a marvelous, expressive bondage orgasm, and when we finished I turned off the camcorder and started untying her.   And then, for the second time in a week, I was asked about bonus orgasms.  Who could say "no" to Addie where that's concerned?  So her hands were now free to hold the Hitachi, but her legs were still bound, and I applied a fresh tapegag on her lips for the climactic post-script.

I really appreciate the dedication of these women, giving a little bit extra for their art, their fans and their profession.

I was cleaning files off the old laptop, and I found a video project that died unfinished.  Almost a year ago when Psy's "Gangnam Style" video was hot, Lorelei got a big kick out of it and all the assorted variant videos that permeated the internet at the time.  Since I'm a huge fan of Larry Blamire's "Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" movies, I thought it would be hilarious to take, for example,  Chinfa, Queen of the Cantaloupe People's minimalist dance, Animala's seductive undulations and other choice moments to create an "Oppa Skeleton Style" video.

The difficulty was getting the raw material for editing.  I have all the DVDs, but they're copy-protected.  I have little doubt the LSOC movies could be obtained from pirate sites, but I'm so violently opposed to them that was never a consideration.  Consequently I was limited to the trailers and select footage I could harvest from youtube.  So, it was poor quality and not necessarily what I'd envisioned for use in my parody/homage.

Also, this was for laughs and not for pay.  Even though I do a lot of things just for the fun of it, the real editing got priority.  Time marched on, Psy made a commercial for pistachios, and "Gangnam Style" went into the record books but ultimately slipped down the popularity polls.  Alas, the moment had passed.  I can only hope The Lost Skeleton would have approved.

Aubrielle Summer Sorry I haven't been as active with this new blog as I should have.  Between the ending of the previous blog and it's current incarnation, I have to admit I've fallen out of the habit of writing for it.  Also, much to my chagrin, I couldn't help but notice that the earlier blog's entries were getting a little formulaic.  Of course, I don't know if that was bad or good for the readers of this blog... I get very little feedback about anything.

It's not too surprising that the women in this business get a lot more customer feedback than the men do.  Even speaking just for myself, given the choice of sending a message, suggestion or praise to a gorgeous woman or some guy, the ladies will get preference every time.  Or maybe I'm just very intimidating, I don't know.

Through a great deal of my career, I seem to be flying blind.  Back in the Harmony days we only got to see sales numbers very rarely because they'd been set up with an unwieldy, highly user-unfriendly database.  Currently my videos are available as downloadable clips through FM Concepts, yet I don't have access to my sales numbers there, either.  I can see my sales numbers for my Clips4Sale store, but it isn't always especially helpful.  In any given month, instead of revealing a clear hit, the sales are usually single or low numbers for dozens of different clips.  Other times the biggest sellers feature models who have retired, precluding any possibility of repeating a success with them.

Of course, feedback is rather different for this genre than most.  The videos can't be created by committee.  And the people producing bondage are usually more motivated by a desire for personal expression than profit.  Or they're shooting custom work to the buyer's specifications.

But I digress.  Feedback is often a mixed bag.  The comments generally fall in to a few select categories:

Praise - While this is great for the ego (and most producers don't seem to have any shortage of ego or need for praise), it doesn't provide a lot of guidance for what we should be doing to better serve the audience.

Request - There's always a fine line with this.  Usually a producer will only hear from the squeaky wheels, and unfortunately it seems many requests, ideas and suggestions frequently border on the "custom video" area.

Constructive Criticism -  rare indeed, and it usually comes in way too late.  Yes, I probably should've done that differently, but where were you six months ago when I was shooting that scene?

Really, the best, most effective feedback is sales... and we could all use more of that.
