Jon's Bondage Blog

JonWoods by JonWoods @
Earlier this month http://americandamsels.com quietly marked its steel anniversary.  I'd like to express my thanks to everyone who's helped keep the site going for these last 11 years.  If I'd have realized it was the steel anniversary earlier, I would've shot some video or stills with some sexy lady in handcuffs and chains to celebrate it.  Oh well, next year is the silk anniversary, so I hope the scarf fans will remind me of that around mid-to-late November.

Other than the events already recorded here in this blog, there were a couple of other notable changes this year.  One was Eric Holman http://fmconcepts.us sold his house and moved into the studio with Lorelei http://bedroombondage.com and me.  The good news is we all get along just fine.  The difficulty has been trying to find the time to get things organized, which hasn't been easy.  Consequently, the studio has been in an advanced state of chaos for much longer than any of us would like.  Yes, getting organized is still on my list of goals for new year (again).

The other change happened on June 21st, when Lorelei and I attended Steampunk L.A. http://www.flavorus.com/event/Steampunk-Los-Angeles-2014/240214  Before that, I had some interest in the steampunk genre and my sweetie had absolutely none, and she went to this event just to humor me.  Since being exposed to the culture that day, Lorelei has been completely hooked.  She's spent a lot of time and effort  preparing her costume, shooting video of performances by her favorite steampunk band https://www.facebook.com/thevelveteenband and planning for us to attend the events we can (http://www.laweekly.com/slideshow/krampusnacht-red-lion-tavern-40710498/ and more coming soon).  In some ways, her enthusiasm/bordering on obsession for steampunk has surpassed mine.  So it encourages me, and it gives me hope I can finally produce my big steampunk story... maybe in 2015?

Since those year-end "best of" lists are the kind of thing people always seem to do for things like blogs, I thought I'd do a quick one here.  The title of "Fan-Favorite Damsel Of The Year" goes once again to Alexis Taylor.  As an individual model, her videos consistently outsell anyone else I tie up for my cameras.  So you'd think I would take advantage of that fact and saturate the market with Alexis in bondage.  However, Ms. Taylor isn't doing a lot of modeling these days (and again, I'm quite flattered that I'm on her short list of producers she'll still work with), but more than that she's spending most of her time actively pursuing other interests which we all hope will be successful for her soon.

Quite a few very exciting new models have come along this year.  Of the contenders for "Rookie Damsel Of The Year" title, all of the candidates are regular adult performers who are doing the (unfortunately, lower-paying) bondage work simply because they enjoy it.  I was really hard-pressed to pick just one.  I nearly resorted to pulling a name out of a hat.  But instead I'll split the title three ways and award it, in no particular order of preference, to Aidra Fox https://twitter.com/AidraFox Jenna Sativa https://twitter.com/JennaSativa and Phoebe Queen https://twitter.com/PhoebeQueen3  I'm really looking forward to working with these gorgeous ladies again in 2015.

I also had a difficult time trying to pick my favorite or what I'd consider to be the "best" video of the year.  The ladies all gave fantastic performances.  In some cases I got to finally shoot a few stories I'd been thinking about and planning for quite a while, even if they had to be scaled down at times.  By the way, I'm still frequently amazed at how well the videos turn out considering how quickly they're done from inception to completion, and all with nothing resembling a budget.  Also, I cannot understate how integral and invaluable Lorelei is to getting these stories done.  With all that in mind, my personal pick for best video would go to "Damsel Stories," available here http://fm1.surfnetcorp.com/acbuild/showdetl.cfm?&DID=20&Product_ID=16593 and here http://clips4sale.com/6571 It's an homage to those wonderful damsel-in-distress scenes of times gone by, brought to life again by a very sexy ensemble cast of some of the best bondage models currently in the business.  

Which bring us to my personal choice for "Damsel Of The Year."  While Alexis Taylor is a good friend of mine and I have nothing but the highest regard for her, my own pick for this title would go to Carissa Montgomery https://twitter.com/CarissaBound  Aside from the fact she sends Lorelei and me Christmas cookies, I think she's just the best bondage model around today.  I can't say enough nice things about her.  She is that rare combination of looks, attitude, professionalism and she has tremendous personal interest in bondage.  And Carissa's just a genuinely nice person.  I can't think of anyone who would deserve this title more than she does.

Once again, I've had a video released before I got the chance to write about the shoots for it here.  "Captive Of The Gray Man" is currently available at FM Concepts http://fmconcepts.us/product.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=2257&group=bondage and will be released at the clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571 in a few weeks.  The video stars Hannah Perez https://twitter.com/thehannahperez and Niki Lee Young https://twitter.com/nikileeyoung and it features a lot of on-screen tying and gagging of these gorgeous ladies.  If you're a fan of on-screen bondage, you should definitely take a look into this one.  

I'm currently collecting notes for the year-end review entry for this blog, and both of these stars popped up in them.  For Ms. Young, I was really thrilled with her performance in "Hollywood Damsel" http://clips4sale.com/6571/11712909  It was one of my favorite videos this year, as well as one I'd been thinking about and planning for way too long.  I guess I was just waiting for Niki Lee Young to come along to fill the role, and she gave an exceptional performance for it.  She was perfectly cast as the sexy blonde ingenue.  Doing the momentous detective magazine recreation that framed this homage was just icing on the cake. (Also, my undying gratitude to Lorelei https://twitter.com/LoreleiMission and Ikaras Jones https://twitter.com/ikarasjones for their help in making this happen.)  For the "Accidental Captive" story on the release, Niki was very tolerant during the on-screen tying, and she was just fantastic struggling and emoting.  And she did a remarkable job with the forced orgasm, too.

This year I had the pleasure of finally shooting with two bondage superstars whose work I've admired for some time.  One was Tracy Jordan.  I really enjoyed this buxom beauty's enthusiasm, professionalism and tremendous positive energy.  The other was Hannah Perez.  Again, a consummate professional with stunning looks, and she knows just how to give the director and viewers exactly what they want.  Ms. Perez doesn't get out to California very often, and so I feel especially fortunate that I got to work with her twice in one year.  Hannah's performance in "Mr. Bike's Damsels" http://clips4sale.com/6571/10990483  was outstanding, and definitely worth a look if you missed it the first time around.  If you don't care as much for costume bondage, then please give some consideration to "Captive Of The Gray Man."

There's a little group of pathetic nobodies who have gone into a psychotic rage lately because I have the audacity to forbid them from using my copyrighted photos.  I guess it makes them feel good about themselves to create a despicable enemy and imbue their straw man with all sorts of horrible qualities that make me out to be the worst human being currently on the planet.  Dudes, get a grip.  (Also, ask anyone who actually knows me.  I'm one of the good guys.  You're the ones who are violating copyright and terms of service.)

From my perspective, all I want is for you worthless little parasites to not steal from me.  If you can't understand or respect that, then... well, I feel sorry for you.  It seems pretty simple, really:  1) Only steal from producers who don't care. 2) Know who you're stealing from. 3) Don't steal from me.

I can only figure that if I can inspire such venom, hatred and impotent rage among these scumbag thieves and shit-talking pissants, then I must be doing something right.

For the most part, I think that the people who shoot fetish are not primarily profit-driven.  If they were, they'd shoot mainstream porn.  Nonetheless, even though the producers are probably more interested in self-expression than getting rich, we would all like to be successful.  Or at least not feel like we're wasting our money and time producing material that's not popular.  Because of that, we sometimes have to turn down models we like, or whom we know won't sell well.  Or disregard all that and have fun anyway, knowing it'll be a loss.

Because we're all constantly trying to guess what will keep us in business, we always have to try to find balance.   Do we only hire the model who we know will quickly earn back her model fee, and run the risk of saturating the market?  Do we hire the models who are freakin' everywhere and appear on pretty much every other bondage site?  Will the fact they're ubiquitous outweigh the fact they're popular and have a following?  Or do we only work with new faces, hoping that the novelty  of a fresh damsel will pay off?  There are no absolute answers.  Or as my fellow producers have often heard me say, "If there was a formula, we'd all be rich."

We'd all like to be the one to discover the next superstar, and it's frequently stimulating to work with new people.  So I do enjoy working with new and different models.  I'm always flattered when a model does her first bondage shoot with Lorelei http://bedroombondage.com and me. I feel we're a good place for the novice to start.  We probably have a tendency to be a bit negative and warn them about what to avoid, but we always try our best to give them a good experience and show them what a professional bondage shoot should be like.

In October and again last month Lorelei and I work with one of http://fmconcepts.us 's favorite new models Phoebe Queen https://twitter.com/PhoebeQueen3 She's really adorable and sexy, and enthusiastic too.  For someone who's coming in from the outside, she's learned everything very quickly.  In real life though,  Phoebe is quite shy and quiet.  So while she gives a fantastic performance when she's tied up and gagged, her natural inclination is to be rather reserved for the "storyline" parts of the video.  But I hope I'll have the opportunity to draw her out some more in future shoots.

We first worked with gorgeous Jenna Sativa https://twitter.com/JennaSativa in September, and I was fortunate to get a return engagement with her in November.  We shot a very nice scene for "It's A Crooked Claw Christmas!" http://fmconcepts.us/product.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=2248&group=bondage She was ballgagged for that segment, and I was truly impressed that between our first shoot and that shoot she learned (that is, on her own time made the effort to teach herself) how to drool past a ballgag.

As I'd mentioned after my first shoot with Jenna, I wanted to take advantage of her resemblance to a certain celebrity; so I shot the two-scene story of "Ewanatiia and The Artifact Hunter."  It's currently up on my clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571  She did a great job with the bondage, although she was almost too successful in getting loose.  I'm definitely going to have to tie her up a little tighter next time.   Jenna looked absolutely amazing in the costume, so I gave it to her at the end of the day.  She promised me she'll put it to good use.  I guess Jenna was really happy  about getting that costume because when she left that day, as well as a hug she gave me a little peck on the cheek.  Sure, it's a small thing, but I think that's the first time that's ever happened to me in my long career.

Statuesque blonde Savannah Snow https://twitter.com/SavannahSnowXXX mentioned on twitter that she wanted to work with me, which I always find very flattering.  So Lorelei and I booked with her late last month.  It was Ms. Snow's very first bondage shoot, although she told us she'd had some personal experience with it.  She's a remarkable lady, and I have no doubt she'll do well, either as a damsel or a domme.  I'm hoping we'll have a chance to work with her again next year.

During the month of November I worked with Candle Boxxx https://twitter.com/cfboxxx http://clips4sale.com/studio/38154/ Carissa Montgomery https://twitter.com/CarissaBound http://clips4sale.com/studio/46473 Jenna Sativa https://twitter.com/JennaSativa and Anastasia Black https://twitter.com/AnastasiaBlackx mostly shooting for my holiday release "It's A Crooked Claw Christmas!"  I'd been noodling with this idea for way too long, and even though it was scaled down considerably from my original grandiose master plan, the ladies all did a phenomenal job, and I thought it came out really well.  Please consider treating yourself to this holiday special, available now here http://fmconcepts.us/product.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=2248&group=bondage and later at my clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571

Once again for Halloween this year, Lorelei and I went down to Santa Monica Boulevard (along with Ikaras Jones and about half a million other people) for the West Hollywood Carnaval.  For a long, long time now, I've been hoping we could appear on a local, English-language broadcast news report from the event.  We seemed to get close a couple of times, but this time we did finally make it.  Lorelei, Ikaras and I were walking along and Brittney Hopper asked us to stop and stand behind her while she did her live report.  A little later in the evening, someone came up to us and told us they'd seen us on channel 9, so I was glad to hear that.  The next day, I looked up the report on KCAL's website, and I was thrilled to see we even made the screencap for the report.  I don't know how long the link below will be viable, but for now you can see the entire report here: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/10/31/wehos-annual-halloween-costume-carnaval-to-close-several-city-streets-2/

As the year is drawing to a close, I realize I should make a goal for the new year to not fall so far behind on the blog again (or maybe I should've said "as usual").  Aside from the fact a lot of amusing little details from the shoots have a tendency to slip out of memory in the interim, in many cases it doesn't take long before the scenes are posted at the clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571 or put onto a DVD.  And so that immediacy that I was hoping for in this blog is consequently missing.  

I've had the opportunity to work with quite a few exciting new people over the last couple of months, many coming to L.A. from out of town.  The lovely and delightful Kelly Kane https://twitter.com/mskellykane http://clips4sale.com/76567 came to us from the East Coast, and Lorelei and I got to shoot some wonderful vignettes with her.  Afterward, we got some shots of (and for) her in the "Slave Leia" costume, and it was really nice doing something different for a change.  And later, Ms. Kane was kind enough to deliver a T-shirt I bought on impulse for Cali Logan https://twitter.com/MsCaliLogan  sometime earlier. I'd also like to thank Ikaras Jones for coming in to help us out and handle the still photography for that shoot https://twitter.com/ikarasjones/status/516009348804259841/photo/1 

In October I finally got to work with Tracy Jordan for the first time.  Lorelei and I really enjoyed her enthusiasm and professionalism.  It's always great working with an experienced model who requires minimal direction, and Tracy's just a lot of fun, too.  It's  no wonder she's a favorite with producers and fans alike.

Sofia Rivera visited from Florida in October, and even though that was her very first bondage shoot, this Latina beauty was certainly game, and she made a sensational debut.  I do hope she'll come back for another visit before long.  Rachel Adams was another experienced model from out East who came out to be terrorized by Lorelei and me.  She's capable of doing some very tough bondage.  But as I usually like to start out slowly the first time I work with someone, I hope we'll be able to create more challenging and involved work next time we meet.
