Jon's Bondage Blog

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.
