Jon's Bondage Blog

JonWoods by JonWoods @
In a couple of days I'll be marking 22 years as a bondage producer.  It's the copper anniversary, and as Tim Woodman https://twitter.com/ProVillain http://www.provillain.com pointed out at a dinner not too long ago, it's particularly appropriate since it's a very "steampunk" sort of anniversary -- just the kind of thing Lorelei https://twitter.com/LoreleiMission http://www.bedroombondage.com/ and I are into at the moment.

Since this isn't a major milestone, I wasn't planning to write a huge entry here.  But sometimes I find it mind-boggling that I've managed to hang on for such a long time in this profession I love.  And it's a little weird for me, because every now and then I'll realize I'm shooting with a model who hadn't even been born when I started working for Harmony Concepts http://harmonyconcepts.com way back at the end of the 20th Century. It's also a bit stunning how time flies because it doesn't seem that long ago that I was writing up the big 20th anniversary entries for this blog, or that this blog was brand new and just getting started, for that matter.

Yogi Berra once said "Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical."  In ways, I feel the same could be said about bondage.  (That's probably true for a lot of bondage enthusiasts as well, generally speaking.)  Except bondage isn't the national pastime, at least for most people.  In any case, these days the budgetary considerations don't allow me to shoot as much as I should (or need to, really), and so it gives me more time to think about strategy.  Or maybe I should say too much time to think about things and plan what I'm going to do next.  And so I seem to be always second-guessing my decisions and trying to figure out what will be successful, that is, make the most people happy and consequently keep me in business.  But the process is not "algorithmic" but "heuristic." And so, while I'm finding my way, I always seem to be coming back to that continuing question of balance http://jon-s-bondage-blog.49167.x6.nabble.com/That-Question-of-Balance-Again-td86.html

The trend in our business for some time now is toward "harder" material.  For the sake of staying afloat, I sometimes consider producing content that is edgier than what I'm currently doing.  But (if you ask any model who's worked with me they'd tell you) that's not where my heart is.  Even after all this time, I really enjoy shooting nice, old-fashioned "damsel in distress" stories.  I know that some of the like-minded fans who have been with me for a long time would probably feel betrayed if I gave up on that completely in favor of stronger material.  But would the fans of more adult or S/M content compensate for the loss of damsel fans?

The closest thing the bondage industry has to a Billboard Top 100 chart is the list of the top-selling clips for our specific category at http://clips4sale.com/list/en/category/4/BONDAGE  I look at some of the studios and clips that made it to the top of the chart, and at times I scratch my head and realize I can't or won't do that stuff.  Sometimes the bondage is minimal.  Other times it's overdone to the point where the models look absolutely god-awful.  Sometimes the "models" are enthusiasts but don't really look like women I'd ever hire.  So what can I do to keep the customers satisfied and stay in business?

The folks running http://clips4sale.com do a tremendous job, and I have no issues with them.  They even have a little tab that you can find at my clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571 to leave feedback.  However the way the system is set up, there's no way to comment on or answer the feedback if there's a question.  Those sparse comments are always marked as being sent by "false," and the writers so far have never thought to include an email address.  And so I thought I'd take this opportunity to respond to those few people who went to the trouble to drop me a line:

Isn't this what did in Harmony?

"What the FUCK A Leprechaun (?)"

He's referring to "The Leprechaun Job" http://clips4sale.com/6571/13599373 a video that somehow got misplaced and was recently found and released.  It was never released through Harmony, although Vivian Ireene Pierce https://twitter.com/Vivian_Pierce did run into trouble with a leprechaun conspiracy a while back in the "Strange Conspiracy" story from "Bondage Stories 6" http://clips4sale.com/6571/6073947  and Vivian also appeared in "Glamour Model Detectives" (WDS-5) http://www.harmonyconcepts.com/www/rsite/videos/wds/wds5newer/wds5.htm which was also shot at Fetish-Con and released about that same time.

An oldie

"There was once a clip that I streamed. It was with Ashley Renee. The clip I saw had her straped to a bed and eventually vibrators were taped to her soles. I would love to be able to puchase that clip again. If possible."

That was a "Toe-Man" custom that Lorelei shot some time ago.  I mentioned your note to her, and she hopes to locate that video so she can post it on her clips store http://clips4sale.com/store/412 one of these days.  Keep an eye out for it!

Geschäftsfrau oder Sekretär

"Gefesselt und cleave gagged liegt auf dem Bett voll bekleidet ohne Schuhe voll bekleidet bis zum ende und sie trägt eine Strumpfhose.Wie aus einem 70jahre Krimi..das würde ich mir wünschen.Liebe Grüße Thomas"

Translated:

Businesswoman or Secretary

"Tied and cleave gagged lies fully clothed on the bed fully clothed without shoes up to the end, and she's wearing pantyhose. As a 70 year mystery... I'd wish for that. Greetings Thomas"

Every now and then I'll work with a model like Anna Lee (Nolan), Shauna Ryanne https://twitter.com/ShaunaRyanne or the aforementioned Vivian Ireene Pierce -- the ones who choose not to do any nudity.  I'll keep your suggestion in mind for the next time one of our demure damsels shows up at the studio.

A Big Superheroine Bound by a Smaller Woman.

"Ashley Rose is a S.H. Caught by Lorelei and Tied, Stripped, Fondled, and Bare Foot Tickled. Finally made to Suck on a Strap-on."

This sounds more like the kind of video Lorelei would produce, and probably with my help.  Sometimes Ms. Rose can be challenging to schedule, as she travels quite a bit.  However, next time we have a shoot with her (or any other six-foot tall superheroine-type ladies) we'll take this into consideration.

Alexis Taylor Secretary Bondage

"She would look great as a classic 50's secretary damsel. Maybe a black tight skirt with a white blouse showing cleavage, and black high heels. Scenario would include her chair tied with rope with a white medical tape gag. Her lips outlined in the gag showing how sealed her lips are. She would have some annoyed gag talk to her captor after being robbed. Recipe for a hit. She's the best. Thank you Woods your the man!"

Thanks!  Alexis is mostly pursuing other interests these days (she's currently on the East Coast), but the next time she's in the neighborhood, I'll see if she ready to get tied down again.

Love the new Bondage Tribute seres

"I really like it when you have a bound woman who is communicating with the audience."

I'm glad to hear that, finally.  I've been making tied-up women liven up what would otherwise be a boring narrative or just a title for a long time now.  It's good to hear it's appreciated.

The "Bondage Tribute" video starts here http://clips4sale.com/6571/7911641 I hope to shoot more scenes like that when the inspiration and opportunity arises.

Here's to another year!  Carpe Damsel!

JonWoods by JonWoods @
This year continues to be rather challenging for us.  However the bright moments are mostly springing from our encounters with some beautiful and talented ladies.  On May 13th Lorelei https://twitter.com/LoreleiMission http://www.bedroombondage.com/ and I shared a shoot with Cassidy Klein https://twitter.com/cassidyxklein  The first time we worked with the lovely Ms. K. sometime last year, we did a three-way split with Eric Holman https://twitter.com/FMConceptsinc http://www.fmconcepts.us/ and so I only got to shoot one scene with her for my clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571/11865071 which was very nice.  Since my sweetie and I were (and for that matter, still are) in dire need of content we each got two scenes with Cassidy that day.  Both of the fantastic segments I got with her on the 13th will be appearing in my next DVD release... which I'll be editing shortly after getting caught up here.  

Usually I'll shoot the vibrator scenes at the end of the day because, hey, that's the climax of the shoot.  However, because the lights were already set up in the bed set and to save time, I asked Cassidy to put on some cute lingerie and thigh-high stockings for a nice frogtie with a knotted cleavegag and a Hitachi chaser.  Once again, Cassidy gave us a fantastic performance.  Then I shot a really well-done "sexy secretary in distress" scene.  The stunning brunette was ballgagged and bound into a crossed-ankle classic position on the sofa, ultimately moving down to the floor and a sort of open fold-tie.  Cassidy's miniskirt hiked up during her struggles, which allowed us a nice view of her incredibly perfect backside.
 
A week later, I got to shoot the main part of the DVD story.  I hadn't worked with Shauna Ryanne https://twitter.com/ShaunaRyanne in a long time.  It was back at the beginning of her career in fetish modeling, I believe.  In the interim, she's blossomed into quite an accomplished damsel.  In the forthcoming video, she plays an unfortunate employee of the B&G Company who falls prey to that notorious industrial spy, Vibert.

Joining her in this misadventure is Britney Amber https://twitter.com/Britney_Amber -- another sexy redhead... because you just can't have too many of those in a bondage video.  Britney had already worked for the guys at FM Concepts, but this was my first time tying up this gorgeous lady.  She usually does regular adult work, and so she's still relatively new to this fetish business.  But she's intuitive and a fast learner (and a good actress as well), so I think she has quite a promising future as a damsel in distress.  I don't believe she has any intrinsic interest in our genre, but she did seem to have a lot of fun during the vibrator scene at the end of the day.

It seems fairly rare these days that I shoot more than one model at a time.  In fact, I wasn't even originally planning for that this time.  An unusual series of circumstances led to the meeting of these two redheads for my story; but it was a fortuitous and happy outcome, as I think it makes for a far more visually interesting tale.

The venerable Nimzo came into town later that week, and on the 23rd I had the privilege of being the on-screen bad guy and rigger for his custom still shoot with gorgeous Keira Nicole https://twitter.com/KeiraNicolexxx  Keira is another crossover performer who mostly appears in regular adult features.  But she seems to have a real natural ability for bondage work, as well as remarkable flexibility.  When you combine that with her cheery, fun-loving attitude, it makes for a very pleasant day for everybody.  This leggy beauty hasn't done a lot in our genre yet, and she'd never worn (or even seen) a single sleeve before that day.  Of course, she had no difficulty slipping into it.  What was more amusing was her reaction when I laced it on her:  She said she felt like a dolphin.  Well, I don't know how well she could swim like that.  I suppose that's a video for another day.  But I do appreciate her unique perspective on that.  She did somewhat resemble a mermaid in it, though one with arms instead of legs joined as a single appendage.  

The stills from that shoot won't be released, but I'm hoping to get Keira in front of my cameras again before long.  Maybe I'll do a Nimzo-themed homage set so you can see what you missed.

I ended last month's shooting schedule with another model I hadn't seen in way too long.  Sofie Marie came in from out of town on April 27th just to work with me again, and I'm quite flattered by the compliment.

Usually she'll stay with us at the studio, but because of some unusual circumstances we put her up in a nearby hotel.  With the opportunity to shoot in a different place, we packed up our gear and did a nice bunch of scenes with Sofie, most of which will be coming out this weekend at the American Damsels clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571  In the main trilogy of scenes, the busty beauty portrays a hotel maid who, for a variety of reasons, finds herself bound and gagged in that fateful hotel room.  Ms. Marie filled out the uniform really well, and she looked amazing while bound, gagged and struggling.  She was also game to do a self-bondage scene, and she gave an especially sensuous performance for that.

However, Sofie is not a big fan of uniforms, so for our last set she put on some sexy lingerie and a corset, and I tied her up in a number of positions that made her feel somewhat more feminine than her earlier wardrobe (though I thought she looked just adorable as a maid).

Although we thought she'd be staying a little longer, Sofie went home the next day.  We had a two-night deal on the hotel room, so the next night Lorelei and I got to take a sentimental journey and shoot a few scenes.  My sweetie didn't want to use a maid uniform or do anything too similar to what I'd shot with Sofie the previous day.  I thought it would've been fine to do a few of the favorite positions again, but still, it was nice improvising with my babe in a hotel room like old times again.

That dangerous enemy agent known only as "The Gray Man" returns yet again to cause more trouble for the Intelligence Community.  You can see his latest bondage-filled exploits here:  http://www.fmconcepts.us/product.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=2300&group=bondage (and sometime later at the AmericanDamsels clips store http://clips4sale.com/6571 in HD).  For this story, I had the pleasure of working with gorgeous Krystal Shay https://twitter.com/KrystalShay again back on April 20th.  It had been way too long since we've worked with her (back at the dawn of her career, in fact), and she's better than ever these days.  In the story, Krystal plays the daughter of the director of F.A.T.E. who's kidnapped by the Gray Man as part of his inscrutable plot.  Ms. Shay gave an amazing performance, and she handled the rigors of being bound and gagged onscreen really well and with no complaints.  After three scenes for the feature, I got an extra, free-standing scene with the blonde babe as a "Captive Lady-Cop" who's handcuffed, bound, tapegagged (with bubblegum-scented duct tape, no less) and forced to use a vibrator for her captors' perverted amusement.  This all-natural babe was fantastic, and you can see that particular multi-orgasmic scene here:  http://clips4sale.com/6571/13458034 

After I got the first part of the story completed, I seemed to have a little trouble getting the next part of the feature shot because of scheduling difficulties.  Nonetheless, with a little help from Eric Holman http://fmconcepts.us  I got the lovely Whitney Westgate https://twitter.com/WhitneyWestgate to play the part of the spy who delivers the ransom for Krystal and subsequently is caught by the evil Gray Man.  On April 25th I had my first shoot with this leggy brunette, and she did quite an energetic job.  Like Krystal, she did really well with the onscreen tying and gagging scenes with nary a discouraging word.
Both the stars of this story are quite remarkable.  The ladies both make excellent, appealing damsels, and they are members of that exclusive club of models who can get their elbows together.  Of course, I gave them the opportunity to show off their abilities in the story.

Once again I find myself playing "catch-up" with the blog.  Darn.  Back on April 15th, Lorelei https://twitter.com/LoreleiMission http://bedroombondage.com/ and I had a fun and productive shoot with Mary Jane Green https://www.facebook.com/maryjane.green.779?fref=ts http://clips4sale.com/store/7960  Lorelei got the first hour with her for a forced strip scene, which she's posted on her "Forced Fantasies" clip store http://clips4sale.com/16221/13346886  and then Mary Jane and I shared a couple of scenes.  The unifying theme of our collaboration that day was the dark-haired beauty's penchant for the classic look for her characters.  It's an aesthetic that I also appreciate, particularly since Ms. Green has such a timeless look, and she does the retro damsel better than just about anyone else.

In our first scene she portrayed that pulp heroine "The Phantom Mystique" (whom we can only surmise is the pulp-era forerunner of the character Alexis Taylor played previously).  Using the guise of a notorious international spy, The Phantom Mystique is mesmerized and captured by the villains, who quickly see through her subterfuge.  The long-stemmed femme is then bound and gagged, and left alone to struggle in a dire situation.  Will she be able to free herself in time?  The answer can be found here:  http://clips4sale.com/6571/13415446 

Next Mary Jane portrayed Margueritte Blackstone, the girlfriend of that mysterious pulp hero "The Dark Silhouette."  Kidnapped by the villains, our damsel's guise as an heiress is discovered!  The gorgeous damsel is bound and gagged, irresistable bait for their arch-nemesis.  Will The Dark Silhouette be able to save his plucky paramour, or are they both doomed?  http://clips4sale.com/6571/13353508 

By the way, our leggy brunette has posted her version of these fantastic scenes on her own clips store, and they're definitely worth a look for her fans who just can't enough of her.
