Comments: Re: The Green Bar.

Not to question the artistic vision of a filmmaker, but wouldn't it have been better to just run the scene without effects altogether. Hell, I'd rather see an invisible ass raping (a la Dance Macabre) than the green bar.

And if the bar stays in place the whole time, what effect could it possibly be covering? Were there plant cocks only in that bar of the screen?

Sorry man, that was a major bad call.

Comments: Hi guys (and girls). This is my first post to this great forum. I am impressed by the civility and - dare I say it? - intelligence of the discussion here, compared to some of the other fora I read.

I have watched about 50 of Rick's videos so far, which is nowhere near enough, so I have read the archives looking for inspiration for my next order. I took note when I saw a top-ten list, a 'must-see' comment, or the like. So now I have a top-25 list of the most recommended (by this forum) ZFX films, which I thought I should share with you for the benefit of others looking to buy or rent these videos.

Most recommended (by far) is Forced Entry with 10 nods. Next are 666, Alien Probe, Cheerleaders of Perilous U, Fair Warning, and Liza Cord, all with 5. 4 nods go to Beyond Driven, Toolbox Abductions 2 and Whiplash 2. Rounding up the top-25 with 3 recommendations each are: Alien Probe 2, Belly of the Beast, Cold Metal, Dentist, Guinea Pigs, Incubus, Meanstreak, Necklace, Night Prowler, Night Prowler 2, Phantacide Peepshow 2, Reporter, Seed, South of the Border, South of the Border 2, Supermax, and Violation of Vikki Fixx.

103 (!) shows were recommended highly by somebody or other, which I think shows the quality and diversity of Rick's work. There really is something for everybody.

Question for Mad Dog: What has happened to the archive page? The last entry is for April '00.

Cheers!

Comments: Joe, I've gotta disagree with you about the bar. I didn't like it either, but it didn't destroy the scene, but going through all the trouble of shooting the scene and not using it could have been disastrous for Rick's attitude towards future special effects, and mad scientist movies in general. It also gave Rick his start with the evil plant thing. Granted, I am not usually one for the evil plant notion (though it was good in Evil Dead!), but this one paid off well in Ballista 2, a movie I highly recommend, by the by.

Uh, Rick? I understand the notion of "one release at time," but isn't the idea to speed up releases? My count shows you releasing 10 vids in '99, 5 so far in '00, and only one on the planning board that I've heard about, scheduled for release, uh, we didn't hear that part, I don't think. What's the plan?

Comments: Iago, I was not saying he should have scrapped the scene, but rather released it with shoddy effects and no bar. I'd rather have a clear view of the action and imagine the attacker. As it is, once he finds the footage, can't he just release it with no effects? I loved the invisible rape in Dance Macabre, so I'd be all for more of that. Imagine that girl on her hands and knees gyrating at the invisible force...

I have another question ... which movie has the hardest whipping of Lisa Kinkaid (not only with a bullwhip) Thank you very much Tony

Comments: To Tony: You probably have seen this one, but if you have not, it is a must see for you. The latest "South of the Border-Atrocities" scores very high in the whipping Lisa category. Two excellent scenes, each ending with a loss of consciousness, the second one with a bullwhip.

Other favorite whipping Lisa scenes: "Voodoo Dolls-2" near the end. I think this one might have a bull whip as well. "Beyond Driven-3, Evil Man" Lisa's debut, described by her as her toughest scene. The last "Whip Shock" which has a great whipping scene on an examination table, ass high in the air. This one does look like its delivered harder than usual.

"Vacum" has two good whipping scenes, one with Lisa upside down (love the straight up camera angle) and one with her suspended spread eagle facing a brick wall. A good "all Lisa" feature is "The Suffering of Stephanie Renford" but I recall it is not whip heavy in content. I enjoy the ZFX films which feature one actress throughout being put through and extended ordeal, such as "In Their Nature" (alas though, no Lisa). Would love to watch an entire feature built around Kelly McKay.

Other great whipping scenes: Penelope Pace in "Blunt Trauma-2" where she is suspended in the middle of a room. Nice sweaty wet scene, I think it might carry over into "Blunt Trauma-3". Holly Weston in "Guinie Pigs-3" (my favorite of the GPs) very nice suspended whipping. Kelly McKay in (I believe) "Underland" where she is suspended upside down. Kelly again in "Atrocities" upside down, and then, near the end, an incredible suspended double up ass forward whipping (sounds like an Olympic event!) great scene. Kim Noble whips well in "Underland" also (btw- Kim Noble should get more credit on this board!). Hope this helps- happy hunting.

Note to BD FAN, I noticed "Special Request" (HOM title starring Kim Bittner/Pia Sands) on DVD in a shop in Eugene Oregon. Next time I am down that way I might pick it up for old times sake. Its pretty tame by ZFX standards but I doubt I'll ever tire of the scene where she is suspended and slowly spinning around...

Comments: Tony: g-in-o has a lot of good answers to your questions. If you want to see Lisa worked over really good, "South of the Border part 4" is a good example, she is not only bullwhipped, but also severly beaten with a rubber hose. Actually, pretty much all of Lisas whipping scenes are quite intense! One bullwhip scene that was not mentioned by g-in-o is in Trojan Horse (Lisa again!). However, I do not consider this one to be among the better ZFX releases, but that is just my opinion.

Comments: Hi Tony,

Fair Warning, the first Shockwave flick, had a pretty intense bullwhipping scene. I was seen through a TV set, and I don't recognize the model or the guy doing the whipping, so it might have been from a source other than ZFX. I remember it did look pretty real, though.

Peace,

Comments: When you talk about intense whippings, are you taking into consideration the girls' reactions? I've started to notice that quite often, they just stand there looking dejected, which is fine after they've been worn down, but they should be really struggling and screaming at first. Same goes for the rape scenes. And it's not like some actresses are good and some are bad. It varies per movie.

Rick, how do you coach your actresses to struggle, protest and scream? Are there times when you notice everyone's just tired and going through the motions and how do you fight that? Example: the blonde chick in Forced Entry. Shouldn't she have screamed through her gag when that baster went in? Personally, I'd rather lose the gag and hear the full screams, but at least something. And why did Lisa have to be knocked out before tied? Why not have her fighting as he ties, getting more scared as she loses the struggle?

Boy, I'm just full of complaints these days, aren't I? Sorry.

Comments: I have been watching ZFX films for a couple of years now. They are easily the best in the genre. My favorites so far are Ballista 2, Underland, and Seed. Favorite actresses: Tough, but I have to go for Lisa, Penny, and Kimberly.

I have just been watching The Worm, which I thought was really good. I found myself enjoying the filmic aspects as much as the naked girls. My hat goes off to you Rick; great camerawork and editing. There was almost no dialogue, but the story was flowing nicely anyway, even the sound effects/music (which can be a bit annoying in other films) were just right, adding to the atmosphere. Good work!

By the way, Rick, please never use the static camera. Take 'As Darkness Falls' as an example. What could have been a great film (good story, a couple of babes, nice location) was marred by the complete lack of camera movement, except for the 'camera in one hand, touching the girls with the other' type scene usually associated with amateur bondage films. If you are going to participate, please have someone else doing the camera.

While I enjoy almost all aspects of ZFX movies, I often find myself fast-forwarding through the bits where plastic and rubber things are forced into the girl's mouth ('Open your mouth', 'Suck it, bitch!'). I am not talking about the gagging or the dildo-in-trousers scenes, but the ones where the gag is removed in order to put a piece of rubber in. Rather than say: 'Rick, please no more of this' I will ask the other contributors to the forum to explain to me why this is exciting to them. That way I might learn to enjoy these scenes. This would be a great help, as there seems to be at least two or three of them in every film.

Thanks.

Comments: Here's an excerpt from my original review of "As Darkness Falls":

"While there are a lot of scenes I liked, this tape suffers through some of the same problems that are usually associated with ZFX tapes, the number one thing being a lack of camera movement. Apparently, Masters doesn't trust anyone other than himself to run camera, so when he's onscreen, you end up with a lot of static shots, when a different camera angle is essential. The entire rape scene was shot from one vantage point, with no editing, tarnishing what could have been a great moment, otherwise."

Obviously, I'm in agreement with skh's assessment, but I think it's a problem that is not nearly as prevalent as it was in the past. One reason may be that Rick doesn't appear on camera as much as he used to, but I personally feel that he's become quite adept with his editing of scenes he appears in, seemingly knowing the right time to mix in the handheld shots with the establishing long shots. When he appeared onscreen in "SOB-4", for instance, when he was torturing Kelly in the jail cell, I wasn't thinking about how long this particular shot was running, because he knew when to cut away at the right time to make the scene flow better and become less tedious. And his following bullwhip scene with Lisa was as about as perfectly put together as they come, which he accomplished by skillfully cutting together shots of himself with the whip (shot separately with a still camera) with reaction shots of Lisa getting lashed. Obviously, both shots were filmed at different times and edited together, like a real movie would do. It worked beautifully, and really made the scene stand out. That was one case where even though Rick was the villain onscreen, the segment didn't suffer in any way, and was in fact enhanced by his editing choices.

Also, I'm a big fan of using the handheld camera. When you get the camera right in there and can see big close-ups of the victim's gagged face and see the hand caressing her breasts and molesting her pussy in big screen-filling shots, it makes it more dramatic to the viewer, or to me, at least. It's almost like you're there looking down on her, and your hand is the hand molesting her. Works for me!

As for forcing the girl to suck rubber dildos, I suppose it's a phallic substitute for the real thing, but I could definitely live without it and just see more forced blow jobs instead. I can excuse Masters' overindulgence of such a scene (it occurs in practically every ZFX tape ever made!) because it only uses up a few minutes out of every tape and at least can be humiliating to the victim, which is always a good thing. :o)

Comments:

We all have different preferences as viewers. I hate screaming. The quieter the scene, the better. I like slow, cool, drawn out menace. Gags are wonderful, the more the better.

The "shoving rubber things in the mouth" scenes are erotic when it works. Sometimes, the action is too quick, or the girl is thrashing around too much and her hair is blocking the view, or whatever. But generally, I like these scenes. I rarely have rape fantasies. What I get off on is consensual, albeit explcit and nasty, dom/sub, and thinking about the predicaments the ZFX actresses put themselves in. The bondage beautiful women insertion is what primarily turns me on, not some rape fantasy. So a scene with anything going in the mouth is sexy, aesthetically in its own right; also, gags add to my fantasy of the woman who is so loving/trusting/submissive/etc that she foregoes any safe words and allows herself to be quieted, putting herself fully into the control of the guy.

That's about the best I can explain it. Also, I'd much rather see something on the screen with sexual overtones ("suck it, bitch") than more physically violent non-sexual play (whipping).

Comments: Ahem.

Boo, Ralphus! Boo! (heh) I happen to really like the phallic stuff in ZFX. I even like the parts where Rick uses the 15 or 18" job and simulates forcing it all the way down a girl's throat (Like with the Reporter 2 or Bound for Madness, yum...). But I do agree, it has to be done right to work. If it's just there as a tool to smack the girl a little and make her lick it for a few seconds, it's not very erotic. I thought it was especially neat when the dildo was used as an injection device, like in Guinea Pigs 3 or The Van. Sort of adds insult to injury, and adds to the whole humiliation of the moment. But, that's just me.

I am curious about something here. If Rick is married to Drew Phonix now, why doesn't she help out with the camera work anymore? She used to be a regular feature on ZFX credits. I notice Rick doesn't seem to like commenting about Drew here, so I'll leave it at that, but she did seem to be good with the camera.

Peace,

Iago

Comments: Iago, that footage you mention in Fair Warning was indeed from a ZFX film. I can't recall the name of it. I do not remember seeing the actress in any other film, but I think the villian might have been Travis Lee. It was wierd, because it included normal ZFX-looking setup footage, but the footage of all the real action looked strange - it was in a sort of small frame, as if it had been converted from some other format. It was frustrating because it looked good and really interesting, just too small. It seemed to be some sort of production problem, perhaps like the green line in AP2. I just looked at a list of ZFX films and nothing seemed to ring a bell. Has anyone else seen the film I'm referring to? BTW, I love the oral scenes, especially the monster facials. Gandland II was great!

Comments: I could take or leave the forced blow jobs, but DON'T EVER STOP THE FORCED CUNT OR ASS PENETRATION!!! That's what I'm here for. And I want noise, screaming, begging, protesting, crying, the works! I also want to see all the tying on screen, preferably while they're awake and protesting, but at least still show the process of tying after they're knocked out. I think there's an easy compromise to accomodate everyone in a single movie.

Woman is wrestled, tied up, stripped (yes, after being tied), screaming and protesting, then forced to suck, then sexually penetrated still screaming, then gagged to shut her up, then continued penetration and fondling, then unconscious, then untied and repositioned, penetrated and fondled while unconscious, woken up by the pain (still gagged), then ungagged and forced to suck again, then screaming while being fondled and penetrated more. Then we can cut to her in the next position without seeing it.

Think that covers everything. Whippings can be done in any or all scenes. That formula is just to address the gag/nongag, blow job/sexual and on-screen/off-screen. I'd still like to see more invisible forces. The irony of rape fantasy is we want to see the women assaulted but we don't want a guy blocking the shot!

Ditto, also. Mr. Smith hits the nail on the head, with humor, too.

And I very much agree with cutting away from the tying up, one of all-time bondage movie peeves. I cannot stand how in some flix (I don't mean necessarily, or at all, in ZFX flix) the rope comes out, and blam! Cut to the next scene with the tying up all completed. No question, the process is as important as the outcome to us pervies out here. Call it foreplay.

Comments: Correction and addition to my last post: The Penelope Pace whipping scene I mentioned is in Blunt Trauma 1&2 (rather than 2&3). A very interesting whipping scene is in SOB-3 (Mexican Jailhouse Torture) where, for a segment, Kelly Mckay is whiped in slow motion. What is great about the scene is that you can see the impact being absorbed on her breasts and the flanks of her thighs. Great stuff and you do not even have to touch the slow-mo button. Regarding the above discussion re forced gagging etc.. Rick has arrived upon a recipe that works very well. Everyone has thier favorite ingrediants (naked suspended whipping! Lisa being ravished by a demon)etc. While I am all for refining and adding to the recipe, I would be very carefull about removing anything.

I have found much more success with my art than with video, and since my drawings and comics are more true to my soul anyway, this is only right I suppose. the two vids I have now are available on my site, but only for a brief time now, because I am abandoning video. The glut market, the unreasonable demands of distributors, and a total lack of interest on the part of over 100,000 visitors to my site has indicated that this was the wrong path. Even though I have good production values, pretty girls, good scenes, and sex, it doesn't seem to matter. So I quit. Thanks again for the kind words guys...

Comments: Now that I've finished some work: ZFX. In the early 90s I lived in Orlando. I had the misfortune of being "hired" as a camera operator for Alex Scarrys' "Scarry Video". The only scary thing about them was how fucking cheap they were. On the rental store shelves (the owner of Scarry owned the second-biggest adult store in Orlando) began to appear these tapes from a little company named ZFX. In the beginning they were pretty crude, pretty cheap too, but the direction they went was exactly what I wanted to do with Scarry. Unfortunately, the owner was far too paranoid to go out on a limb and do the kind of content that "Rick" and his little band of guerrilla pervs was doing. Scarry is no more. ZFX, well, we all know.

The only good thing to come out of that whole nightmare was the discovery of Chandra Sweet, who shot some of her first vids with us. She was 19, blonde as hell, and incredible to look at. I did one scene with her, as a home invader who has his way with her bound and naked bod. That girl was the finest firm rack of real tits on earth. I'll never forget her. Of course there was no money, so you would think that some perks would trickle my way. Nope. The owner got everything. All the money was for Him. All the pussy was for Him. So who works for free? Not me.

You guys bitch about high prices? Do you know what a copy of HOMs "Tourist Trap" cost in 1984? $100. And easy to get. These first ZFX tapes regularly retailed for $70, and we all thought it was a steal. Underground bondage with penetration was available if you would chuck up $200 a tape, but the girls were hideous. You whiners don't have a clue how good you have it. Well, here comes your wake-up.

Smell the Republicans a- comin. Reno was so busy killing religious fanatics and honest gun owners that porn didn't get much attention. Get ready for a slap boys. I'm going to pull my vids off my site and just sit tight until the next Attorney General gets the genre' so fucked up again that the old black market atmosphere and attached prices return. Just watch it happen. "Rick" knows exactly what I'm talkin' about. If I were you guys, I'd buy the shit out of every ZFX title right now. "Rick" is the Big Dog in BDSM video right now, and as such he's the guy on top of the hill waving the big red "shoot me" flag at the approaching army of Darkness. Good luck, Buddy....

Anyway, art is my life now. That and my personal little harem of slavegirls. Drop by my site and free chatroom any night at midnight. We'll talk. See ya.

Comments: Ya, I told Gary last night that I would post here to let you guys know about his videos being taken down from his site, apparently he beat me to the punch. But I got the low down from him last night as to the content of them. Apparently they are very rough and show actual penetration, something some of you may want to check out, and the models are good looking. I believe his exact words were, "THE CHICKS IN MY VIDS GET FUCKED!" Sounds like a ringing endorsement to me. : )

You guys can go check out all the screen captures from them at his site for free, and there are a lot of them. To see the screen captures click on the "Gallery" link. The "Video" link has a few pictures but is really just for ordering the tapes. I would also invite anyone in here to join in the real-time chat that Gary has up and running on the site. I would be nice to get some real time dialog going with some of you on the board. I know that I've been steering a lot of people from there to ZFX. You cant imagine how many people who are into this stuff have never heard of ZFX. That's like someone who's into religion having never heard of Jesus or something. It's weird when someone into the rough stuff like we are on this board says, "What's ZFX?" It's like, how could you not know? Anyhow, hope to see some of you there.

I'd like to see something of a James Bond type plot once in a while too. There was one vid from the 70s called "Girl from SEX" where it almost happened, a naked chick tied having a giant dildo aimed at her, but then the good guys rescued her. I know there was a whole series of Jane Bond porno titles. Did any of them do the bondage thing?

Dance Macabre ruled. Thanks for the other tips!

If you scroll up, there were a few people who were inquiring as to what the content of Roberts Dark Star videos were like. Well I found out right from the horse's mouth and thought I'd help the people out who wanted to know.

If you look at the opening page to this forum you will see that it's here for discussion of all bondage video, not just ZFX. ZFX is discussed the most because it is by far the best out there, but it isn't the only.

Just because you're not interested doesn't mean others aren't.

Comments: Gary Roberts: Thanks for your informative posts. I had seen some of your excellent artwork, but I never knew about the videos. I went to your site just now and ordered one of your tapes, as a result of your post.

I remember Scarry Video! I saw a few of their tapes, and only one stood out for me as being worthy of capturing the ZFX spirit. It starred Chandra and someone named "Rick Roper" (probably a pseudonym, I'm guessing). Anyway, it a home invasion theme called "Bound and Abused". Could that have been the one you were talking about? It was a decent tape, and even then, Chandra was quite the performer, and maybe at her peak as far as looks go, because she had that long blonde hair. I recall at the end she was left tied up on the coffee table, bound in plastic wrap, with the words "FUCK ME" written across her body. Nice stuff, but again, it was the only good tape I ever saw from Scarry Video.

Comments: Yes, that was the one. I was "Rick Roper" in "Bound and Abused" with Chandra. What a bod on that bitch. UUUHH! Whole story be known, we shot it through to its logical conclusion as the Boyfriend comes back, finds her all bound on the coffee table, and proceeds to fuck the daylights out of her. Unfortunately again, the owner (who is the boyfriend in the vid) chickened out in editing and cut it short without that last scene. Bitch ain't it? You have no clue how much I had to struggle with him to get that vid shot, as it was a total departure from the usual Scarry fare of bondage for no apparent reason. And who gets to fuck her? HE does! what an asshole.....I like to have a little plot, however flimsy, at least to lend a touch of reality. Truth be known, guys peep in windows, break into houses, and rape girls with alarming regularity in this world, so this plot was a no-brainer. It's nice to hear that SOMEBODY saw it. I think you're in a crowd of 3 though. Scarry Vid didn't live long. Thanks for your review. God knows, I try...

Comments: I just wanted to add that I also saw the movie, Bound and Abused, by Scarry Video and thought it was great. I loved Chandra Sweet so much in the video that I wrote a letter to ZFX suggesting that they consider hiring Chandra for some of their videos. I was very pleasantly surprised and amazed when I saw Chandra in her first ZFX video not long after that, the Necklace. I don't know if my suggestion had anything to do with ZFX hiring Chandra, but I sure am happy they did! I hope Chandra will do more videos with ZFX in the future, and I think I would also prefer seeing her as a blonde, although she also looks great as a brunette. I sure am enjoying reading your posts, Gary. I also wish Scarry Video had made more ZFX-style movies - maybe they would have lasted longer if they had.

Comments: hey Robert: When I started up Dark Star for real late '99, the first model I tried to find was Chandra. Even "Rick" at ZFX hasn't heard from her in awhile, unless that has changed since I last asked. As I said, I fought with "Alex" at Scarry constantly over the content, and I think my position is borne out now by you guys. It would not have mattered much as far as keeping that company alive though. There was way too much bullshit going on in every area. Just to show how stupid things can get, I brought up the ZFX stuff to him on many occasions, and his response was that "the Feds just haven't caught up with them yet". Well, 10 plus years in business later....not even ZFX is just dumb-lucky. There must be a reason they're still there. "Alex" was just a drunk, partied-out, paranoid freak. I don't even know if he's still alive up there in Orlando. Thanks guys....If we weren't sitting in the middle of an over-stocked glut video market, trust me, I'd be shooting two vids a month, and the kind of shit we all really want to see too. Lets see what the next 4 years brings us...

Comments: Hello All!

Ok, I've got good news and bad. The good news is South of the Border 5: In the Flesh has been completed.....the bad news is it will not be released till Jan 15th, but that date is very firm. Sometime before now and then the site will be updated but might be a couple weeks.

Gary Roberts: Thanks for coming! I have said this before, but I am a HUGE fan of your art and I dont doubt your videos are very good as well. The tale of your Chandra encounter is right on the money. She was actually sent to me by Mr. Scarry shortly there after. As far as your assessment of things Politically speaking.....yes the armies of darkness are circling out there but I prefer to think I'm the guy waving the big red flag that says FREEDOM! Seriously though, no telling what the future holds, but its probably not good. We have really had a golden age since the Republicans got the boot 8 years ago.....but I guess America had too much peace and prosperity...time for a little trickle down economics and repression. Oh well, maybe I'll get a tax break before they put me in the da bighouse;D Don't give up all hope just yet, Gore may still win....but I think no matter whos in charge, there will be a crack down, however it will probably come on the internet not on video sales as it did before. In the mind of the average Republican, the internet has replaced video as the Great Satan. Or.....it might be on all of the above! Anything is possible so expect the unexpected! If a flying saucer pops outta ole GW's head, I want you to have expected it.....

Fair Warning: The small frame stuff is from the movie The Abductions of Devon Nichols I think. I didn't shoot this movie (though I do own it and released it under the Entity name) and YES there was a problem with this footage so it had to be treated. This is not a great movie IMHO, so dont rush out and buy it. Fair Warning , OTOH, is a good show and one of my favs and was also Chandra's first movie for me.

Ok, that's it for now.....thanks to all who read here, post and watch the movies and to our fearless web master Mad Dog for keeping it all together.

Regards

Rick

Comments: All I meant by my sarcasm what we all seem to agree, in ANY distributor, about the on-screen tyings and stuff. Enough now.

Incubus was cool, thanks for reminding me. There was an offscreen tying in that. Funny how the little things make you forget the bigger picture.

How about the other mainstream companies? I've seen stuff from Close-Up, Bizarre, London and B&D Pleasures. All boring shit. There are a few other companies I see in the porn shops though. When I run out of new ZFX to see, are there any worth a look at all? On-screen tyings, realistic struggling, no-gags, real protests? I know no one else does penetration, but anything else? I think I remember a Brian Davis video I liked.

Comments: SOB-5 complete! Lisa, Kelly and the unveiling of Marley- Jan 15 can not come soon enough. Pardon the implied gluttony but, Rick, what is the next one in line? Even vague projections are welcome and I for one will not hold you to them. I'm just glad to know there is more on the way.

More Scarey Stuff: Enjoyed "Bound & Abused" with Chandra. Did anyone catch "Bunny Tales" also with her. Basic submission run-through with no real framework other than an insipid bunny hat that Chandra wore throughout. Chandra looked great but the film itself was lacking- until the end where Chandra goes solo with a long rubber dildo. Incredible noisy scene, and how that girl could work a rubber cock! Worth viewing for that scene alone.

Also liked the features that starred an actress by the name of "Misty Lane" (or Rain) (but not the mainstream and bondage actress of similar name). "Paintballed" was one of them as were a couple of others. In one she gets a pretty hard ass whipping by a giantress by the name of "Trauma Mama" (I shit you not). Think the title was something like "Damaged Merchandise" or the like. Nice and red by the end. When Chandra jumped to ZFX I had hoped that she would too. The rest of movies Scarry made did nothing for me but I suppose that is a matter of taste.

Other Bondage Films? (In Oregon we have great laws so we get a good view of what is out there).

London & the like: uses mainstream porno actresses either on the way up or on the way down. Might have had their moments in the early 90's (or maybe it was that I had not seen ZFX yet) anyway, find them pretty lame, banal, by the numbers and dull.

Brian Davis: If you love ropes, he is your man (and one wonders when he is going to mix a clipper ship into his plots). Keeps things light to the point of silly and is stuck in the "love bondage" rut. When he trots out that naked blond into the outdoors (its happened twice recently) all is forgiven.

Japanese Imports- the ones I am talking about are all numbered, no titles on the tapes but sometimes an oddly translated phrase on the box. One in 15 will be great and the others sometimes have their moments. Someday I will have to figure out what the hell they are about.

English Caning videos imported by Cal Star: the same movie. made again over and over and over and over and over. Sometimes though, when the actress is pretty enough, they can be quite engaging. "Caned with Honors" rates high in that category.

The rest of Cal Star: Some may disagree but since 1994 or so, I have found them unwatchable. Hope that helps a bit. Sorry if its long but I have to but this BD movie degree to some use.

To Roberts: Love the comics!

Comments: Hey Rick: glad to hear from you. Tell me, is Liberty Video still out there on OBT, or did the ground open up and swallow the whole mess as I had predicted?

God, the horror stories I could tell here...I'll tell you the Debbie Diamond saga one day..you'll piss yourself laughing. We would all hope that cooler heads will prevail in the coming administration, as stuffing this genie back in its tiny bottle is impossible by all accounts, but we can be sure that they will take the action they always do, and knock off a few high-visibility targets initially and hope that it makes all of us keep our heads down. This is SOP for the USAG office. But even they know that the conservative dream of throwing the country back to the Leave it to Beaver '50s is completely absurd and unattainable. Through all of the persecutions through the years though, one thing holds up unchallenged. ART. So I'm staying out of video for awhile and just drawing my severely nasty rape comics and torture illustrations for the masses.

We can take heart in the fact that the ultra-conservative religious right has had a falling out with the camp of George W., so don't expect Buchannan or Falwell to have much pull this time out. Forming their own party was the best thing that could happen. Now that whole lunatic fringe is off chasing after Pat yelling Halleleujah! And George n company will likely do what all good conservative Republicans do...spend all our money on new toys for the Military, hold congressional hearings, and try to bring their traditional industry thinking up to speed on the evils of the digital age. They will try to attack it, but first they have to know what it IS, and there's where guys into Oil and Auto Making and Heavy Industry usually look foolish. They just don't get it yet. Of course, as with the silly "war on drugs", they have to reach into their own pockets and count just how much of their OWN capital will vanish if they DO shut down porn on the internet, as we all know, a BIG chunk of the billions spent is spent on those nasty pay sites. You think Chase Manhattan Bank is gonna agree with losing all that Visa/MC money? NOT.

OOPS. Sorry...soap boxing...I'll try to talk more about making rape and torture movies next time...sorry bout the RANT...

The only problem with Bush winning, I think, is that Republicans are so dang partisan. Dems fight and feud amongst themselves, limiting the damage they can do, but Republicans tend to act with an eerily hive-minded singularity of purpose.

So far as Bush, he doesn't worry me too much. He's going to have his hands full with other things shortly. After a long prosperous streak, we are going to be due for a recession in a year or two, particularly if Bush ignores Greenspan. If that happens, we're talking one-termer here for sure. Even Reps are limited by the damage they can do in 4 years, thanks to the ACLU and the ability to challenge laws in the courts.

Comments: Out of curiosity, what were the great censorship actions during the last Republican administrations that has everybody quaking in their boots? What was the effect of those actions? In other words, what disappeared as a result of those censorship activities? The only big efforts at censorship that I'm aware of in the last couple decades was the Meese Commission report (which was a terrible study, not a police action) in Jul 86 during Reagan's watch and an effort by the Clinton administration a few years ago to censor adult internet sites. I can't think of anything that occurred during George Sr's reign.

As has already been mentioned, there's the possibility of something happening with either administration. As with previous efforts, the Supreme Court will probably knock them down and leave censorship at the state level and lower based on community standards under the thought that Podunk, Arkansas probably has different standards than LA. The focus will probably be on the net because it represents the more global problem. There are enough laws in place to prevent minors from renting adult videos, but it's not that hard for kids to find bondage and nudity on the net. The typical warning before entering a site doesn't present much of a deterrence and tends to be more of an attraction to something forbidden.

Gary, make that 4 viewers because I also loved the Scarry tape you made with Chandra. Unfortunately, it was one of the first of their videos I tried and I wasted a lot of rentals and time hoping that there was another like it. Now I know why it was a lost cause. I hope Ralphus gives us a thorough review of the tape he ordered because I've been debating getting one. My tastes differ a lot from Ralphus, but he tends to describe a video well enough that it's a starting point for a decision to get a tape.

Comments: Just out of curiosity, did things only start loosening up when Clinton took office or did it actually start happening during Bush Sr.'s single term from 88 to 92? I only started collecting tapes around 97-98 so I don't know either way. But Gary said that he was working for Scary around the early 90's.

I'm in agreement with the others in here who feel changes are coming no matter who gets the office though. They are both big on the whole FAMILY VALUES platform, and you can't forget Lieberman. That's the scariest guy in the whole campaign. I voted for Gore because I think he is the lesser of the two evils, but if he does get in, Lieberman's going to make it his personal goal to clean America up, and Tipper's is going to be right behind him.

I also agree that the internet is going to be their main focus, but hopefully all they will do is make all adult sites have to work under some kind of password protection like Adult Check or something. I don't want that but I'd be willing to live with it because it would be better than actually making most of the sites go away all together. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Comments: Guys: I'm going to come out four-square for Rick and ZFX and his right to make any kind of fucking movie he wants to no matter what happens. I don't think adult or heavy fetish video is in too much danger to be honest, but everything on the internet WILL be under scrutiny soon. We just all have to keep our ears and eyes open. The Meese commission threw cold water on the whole industry for a while, and there were prosecutions both successful and not, but the government does not like to publicize its failures so you won't be finding those reports on page 1. Fact is, under present law in most states and federal, all you need is for a judge and or judges to rule that your material is obscene. Period. That's all. There are no parameters. There are no written do's and dont's. If they tell us what we can't do, it also tells us what we CAN do, and they HATE that. So they leave it so they can make it up as they go.

I've been a musician my whole life, mostly in Miami. One of my oldest aquaintances is Luther Campbell (Luke Skywalker, 2-live crew)...I can tell you about obscenity prosecutions and what they cost.

The Debbie Diamond saga.......The wildest fucking chick I have EVER met. Stone cold fucking nuts. Lets just say we hired her to do a shoot and she was also doing a signing appearance at a strip club in Cocoa Beach..well...she got off the plane drunk, she stayed drunk the whole three days she was with us, she fucked everybody, she tried to jump out of a moving van on Colonial Drive in Orlando after tearing all her clothes off...she grabbed our male "star" Bob (the asshole) Mr. tan booth/corvette/capped teeth dragged him into a back bedroom at the lake house and kept him there for day n a half...In cocoa beach she jumped out of the van at 3am to go skinny-dip in the Atlantic... Do you get my drift, boys? You know what? We never did shoot a video...We dumbfuck Florida amateurs weren't ready for shit like she brought. That girl tore us all up. Took our money, got on the plane, went back to L.A. with us all trying to recover from the hangovers and sore dicks. What a fucking weekend.

Hey, answer me this...who was the little chick that shot with Rick in a bunch of early ZFX stuff..she was a little long haired brown/blonde, always wore a headband pulled up in her hair...little tits, nice ass, cute little petite chick...She used to dance at Circus Circus in Orlando. I think she was in "Doc Bondage" and a few more...Name anybody? I always liked her...

Comments: I don't think there has been a loosening up of porn as much as a change in how it's accessed. Porn used to be fairly easy to target because towns could go after the adult stores that sold it or the theaters that showed it. This was where community standards ruled. Eliminating local sources where adult material could be bought essentially locked out that community's access to it even by mail because a person couldn't even find a magazine with ads, let alone buy them locally.

Video brought porn out of the theaters and into homes and resulted in adult tapes moving from adult stores to Mom&Pop video rental stores. It was really the internet that opened the doors to porn. The net made it much easier finding sources of porn and opened up a new avenue to viewing it without communities having any means of stopping it because the source isn't local.

Technology is making porn more available to people who want it, but there's always a bunch of tight-laced busybodies who feel they know more about about what's right for us than we do. If things have loosened up with porn, it's been technology that has done it, not any political regime in power. The busybodies are just starting to catch up with these changes and it's only a matter of time before they start trying to exert their control over the distribution of porn again.

Comments: Milo and everybody else: I don't intend to use this forum as a vehicle to advertise my site or items for sale, as I would consider this very bad form if someone were to use MY guestbook for this.

Actually, I DID have some chic try to do just that. The fact that server and IP info can be backtracked to give me her street address pretty much stopped THAT bullshit. Anyway.....I'm fully aware of how much Drawing Palace and D'O Fantasy charge thier members to view my work. I have gone along with this because they also pay ME.

But things are about to change in January. Both of those sites tax my time immensely, and in reality, they do not pay me anywhere in proportion to the money THEY make on memberships to see my art. So this is whats going to happen: Dark Star is going to install a Members Section. NOT the whole site, just a special section. There will still be a FREE gallery, with deliberately soft BDSM and Sci-Fi chix. BUT if you want to see the FULL gallery, with the really HARD abduction, rape, torture, hard bondage, in illustrations and comics, you will become a member with a password and the same deal will apply...monthly updates, monthly renewals, new art every month. And when this happens, my contributions to both DP and D'O will drop off sharply, as I am going to focus all my efforts to my own site content. AND that content will be MORE of everything I am about, but harder, more vicious, more sexually explicit...Its going all the way guys.

I won't do PDF comics like D'O because the image quality sucks. They are always blurred. Better to be a member and see what I was REALLY drawing. Everybody that gets my CDs tells me how surprised they are, how much better the pics are, because all they've seen is PDF. Anyway, I hope this answers some questions for a lot of people. That's the direction I'm going. And to the owner of this forum: SORRY! I won't come in and blow my own horn in your house.

Comments: You guys want to know about Chandra? Rick can tell you MUCH more than I can. He's shot a shitload of vids with her. We only did a few, and I think only 2 got released. I didn't party with her. remember that "Alex" kept all the pussy for himself. On a purely sexual level, back then at 19 and blonde, she was my fantasy girl. But in a world apart from our reality. When "Alex" and I first went over to see her and get her to do a vid (me on my green nuclear Kawasaki, Alex on his baby blue Harley) she was living in a dope haze in a fucked up dirty apartment with no furniture in it with some ratty dude. We must face facts. Gorgeous as she was, she was no rocket scientist, and I know she saw adult video as her way out of poverty. The ride was memorable only because the carburetor fell clean off the Harley. I still own and frequently ride the Kawi.

Making "Bound and Abused" was a huge rush. It was the first time I had played in front of camera. Chandra was very business. Her instructions to me were do what you want, but don't bite or suck her tits as they are very sensitive and get her crazy. You can guess where I went once I got her tied and naked. Yup. RIP. Right for the tits. And what firm beautiful tits. And I'm a sick-o for round asses too, so she got my wood up big time. I mean, I think Jennifer Lopez is perfect, THAT'S how big an ass man I am. Chandra got back. So the tits got a mauling and the ass got a spankin' right off. She was a sight. I had to take a few stiff shots of Wild Turkey just to keep from blowin cheese in my pants.

After a couple more shoots with us (one that Alex did has the distinction of having the funniest line ever uttered by a male on a porno set after the cum shot: He looks at me, Chandra wiping herself off on the couch, and says "that is the biggest my dick has ever been." I was howling). I don't like Chandra brunette. And later on, her nicely rounded ass got a BIT out of hand size-wize. But this was all in her ZFX career. I have no idea what became of her, but she's only in her late 20s wherever she is, so she may pop up in somebodys vids. I just hope she's blonde when that happens.

Comments: Hey everyone. A couple of things:

First, I would like to weigh in on Bruce Seven. If you like sexy girls whipping sexy girls, he was the BEST (yes, I know the consentual stuff is boring, but his films were really erotic). His vids were my second favorite to ZFX. I think he died of emphyzema (sp?) You could tell he was in bad shape in some of his later vids - he was confined to a wheelchair while spanking girls. I mourn his passsing.

Second, I would like someone who has seen Maximum Desade to please give a review - I'm thinking about picking it up. Please let me know if there is good breast bondage in that vid.

Name: CG/Portland
Comments: So much to say,where to start? Answer a question first, Maximum Desade is a excellent early ZFX film, giving a real indication of things to come, but it is not in the same class as the more recent ZFX efforts.

My personal favorites: Alison Parish and Sandra Chase in some of the earlier films, I also grew to really like Drew Phonix. Candi Licks, who first appeared in the last Video Pirates episodes and Night Prowler III and IV was exceptional, lifting ZFX to a whole new level. Then Penelope Pace and Lisa Kinkaid continued the trend. Penelope Pace is probably my all time favorite, she is an amazinly limber woman. Lisa just continues to get better all the time. Monica Moore was great in the few appearances that she made, would like to see her come back.

Favorite videos: The Subject 9 series that introduced Penelope Pace, The Worm, which few people have mentioned, it was one of the more intense videos, Marilyn Malone got into positions that were really incredible, and she suffers and comes so well. The Underland series,666 series,and South of the Border are all exceptional. Also, the Blunt Trauma series, another of the early Penelope Pace videos, are all excellent. I have been viewing the ZFX tapes since they were first put out by BonVue, it has been amazing to see how the quality has continued to grow.

The more recent tapes have been the most explicit sexually,and the increasing infrequency of new releases has made me wonder if there were any legal problems being encountered. Basically, only 5 videos were released this year, I hope next year offers a return to the 15-20 video output of previous years. I guess that is enough for my first effort here.

One last suggestion for Rick, it would be interesting if he had some sort of update on his previous (and current) starlets, are they still performing, married, out of the business, whatever.

Comments: Re: Maximum Desade

Maximum Desade was the very first tape I ever saw from ZFX and I believe was one of the first two tapes Rick ever released under the ZFX label. What was sort of ironic to me is that even though it was the first ZFX I rented, I didn't really get to SEE it because I ended up with a defective copy that constantly jumped. The only way I could watch it was to just hit the fast-forward scan button and see what was in it that way. I remember thinking that whoever made this tape sure had good ideas and knew what he was doing, because here were cute girls being tied up and attacked in a natural setting, as opposed to the typical S&M flicks that featured phony dungeons and professional bondage gear. This seemed like a fresh approach to the whole genre, more believable and more realistic to have someone attacked in their bedroom than in some silly artificial dungeon.

Still, I hadn't actually SEEN it, but I was intrigued enough to rent another ZFX, "Scene of the Crime", with Sierra Stuart and Victoria Vixxen and Drew Phonix, and I was hooked for good. Since then, I've seen everything Rick has ever put out, but it wasn't until several years later that I finally got ahold of another print of "Maximum Desade". While it is somewhat cruder and more low-budget than some of his later work, it still had some of the early inventive ZFX touches that Rick has honed in the later shows. To me, the standout segment of the tape involved an incredibly adorable dark-haired cutie named Nina Dew being attacked from her bed by Rick. First he handcuffed her, then he gagged her by sticking a ball in her mouth, forcing a stocking over her head to keep it in place, then finishing her gag by using a strap gag over top of that. I remember admiring his ingenuity even then, coming up with a gag like that. After stripping her, he put her into a tight hogtie, literally wrapped her up in her own bedsheet and carried her off. Wow! It's a classic scene, IMO.

As far as actual breast bondage, I don't recall any, but Nina is put through some nasty breast torture, and pussy torture, too, via the multi-clothespin treatment. The other two segments are far less sharp in my mind, but I remember enjoying the whole thing. I would give it up a B overall, and recommend it as one of ZFX's earliest successes. And Nina Dew? I never saw her again, except in a short segment featuring some of the same footage recycled in "Dance Macabre". Too bad she never shot with Rick again, because she was one of the all-time doll babies.

Here's a question for the panel. What was the first ZFX video you ever saw? For me, "Maximum Desade" and "Scene of the Crime" got me started and opened up new levels of what constituted bondage entertainment in my eyes. They weren't my first bondage tapes, but they were maybe the first bondage vids that really showed me what I had wanted to see all along. Realistic abductions, bondage rape, torture, all the elements that other companies were (and still are) too chicken to put out. Rick continues to stand apart from the others in that regard. So what was your first exposure to ZFX, and what kind of impact did it have on you?

Comments: Whoa! CG/Portland- would that be Oregon? If so, you are probably as pleased as I am that Taboo video out on 82nd just invested heavily in most of the ZFX catalog in the rental section. It has given me a welcome chance to brush up on my studies. Welcome aboard! First ZFX movie I saw..- "Spread Eagle". Started off good, liked the hosing scene and then.... Alison Parrish. I was hooked. Favorite Alison movies- "Pretty Tied Up" and the first two "GP"s. Love the scene on the bed springs, and has there ever been a better ZFX cover?

Comments: Great new topic for the board Ralphus, and you feature prominently in my introduction to ZFX, as I'm sure will be the case for many who contribute to this line of discussion.

I'll start off by warning you all that I have the buzz on right now, so this may be long and rambling, but what the hell? I have a few free moments and feel like contributing. So please excuse any grammatical errors.

My fetish for seeing hot chicks tied up and used really started when I was in the Navy and I bought the Japanese anime movie "Urotsukidogi Legend of the Overfiend" on a fluke at a comic book store. I couldn't believe how blatant the movie was about treating women as simple objects of sexual gratification. I mean, it starts out with a really hot woman being thrown from the top of a building as a sacrifice and a demon rapes her as she falls to the ground. Way back in Jr. High I had made a few drawings of naked women tied up, but I had never seen anything on this level in my life. Needless to say, I was hooked, and there was no guilt about watching animated women being raped and used. Anime became my main focus for a while, and I still love the format, because as with Gary Roberts art, it can go places that actual live video simply can't. I. E. Anyone in this forum who hasn't seen the LaBlue Girl series doesn't know what they are missing.

Anyhow, I got my first computer around the end of 95, and it didn't take me long to find the newsgroups and bondage sites. That's when I found actual live action bondage flicks. It took me a while to work up the courage to order shit over the internet, but I finally broke down and ordered some stuff from Close Up Concepts. As many of you in here know, these are basically the bondage flicks where you have a hot chick tied up and you simply get to watch her squirm for a few minutes. Then a guy will come in and put her in a new position every once and a while. Not a pimple on the ass of ZFX, but I thought it was great then. I still like my Brian Davis tape with Summer Cummings as she is simply an incredible looking brunette with HUGE tits and a body to die for. BND - 42 is the name of the tape for any who are interested. Trust me, she is HOT! It was good stuff to me at the time, but still didn't go as far as I had hoped it would.

So of course this led me to live action Japanese Rape Tapes, which is always a very hit or miss proposition. As with Anime, I still love the format, because even though there are some of tapes that miss the mark, when it's on target, it's GREAT SHIT!. I have a LOT of these tapes and could go into which are and aren't good, IMHO, but I'll hold off unless any of your really want to hear about them. http://www.vcd1.com/ and http://www.xxxcyberstore.com/ are the two best sites I've found for that type of material by the way. VCD1 being the better of the two.

Ok, so I finally stumbled across the Galaxy of Terror site, which had screen captures of Lisa Kincaid being raped by a Teddy Bear in Voodoo Dolls. I was very intrigued by the pictures and the web masters descriptions of how rough ZFX movies were. I quickly found the link to the official ZFX website and was instantly consumed by all of the pictures Rick had posted from his movies. I had never seen anything like it and pretty much spent all of my free time wondering which of the tapes to order on my limited full time student budget at $45.00 a pop. That's when I found this message board, which was like a dream come true. Not only were people, including Rick himself, having actual intelligent discussions about being into this type of material, but by scouring through posts and Ralphus's reviews I was able to make a very good first selection of tapes.

As I recall, the ones in the first group were Whipshock 4, 666, and Cheerleaders of Perilous U. I still remember how excited I was to get those tapes, especially Whipshock 4 because of the screen captures of Lisa being shocked or whatever the hell that thing was doing to her while she was tied up on to that table. It was INCREDIBLE, for once I had found some tapes that were not only as good as what they claimed to be on the internet, but actually exceeded their descriptions and screen captures. To this day watching Lisa's exquisite body get progressively sweatier from her torture as she squirms is simply breathtaking to behold. Not to mention that every minute of the 666 video was like pure heaven to me, and I hadn't even discovered Monica Moore yet! The first time I saw her abused on tape was just numbingly pleasing to see. Now I have about 17 tapes and my collection just keeps growing.

With the help of this board, I have yet to purchase a video yet that has disappointed me. Let's see, Phantacide Peepshow 2, Forced Entry, The Reporter 1 & 2, South Of The Border 1 & 2, Fair Warning, Lisa Chord (Spelling?), 666 mark of the Beast, and others I can't think of right now, and each one has it's own delights to offer.

So Anyway, that's my story, probably a little more detail than needed, but I get diarrhea of the fingers when I'm drunk. : )

Peace Out,

HOWIE

Comments: I think my first was also Whiplash 4. I fell in love with Lisa, and when I saw them lube her ass with vaseline, I was like, "This is too good to be true. Something's going to save her now, because they can't show it." The rest, as you all know, is history. Even when I found out how some of the stuff is faked (and I still believe every once in a while has to be real), it didn't matter because it looks real enough. The actors really help. Of course there are times they are too silent, but that is another thread.

Speaking of other threads, I don't recall getting a response from Rick on the off-screen tying issue. If so many fans want to see the tying occurr on screen, and with the girls conscious and struggling, why not make that part of the shoot? Yeah, it requires acting during the technical tying scenes, but I'm sure you shoot way more stuff than you actually use anyway. Just shoot this and stick it in (pun intended.) Most of the videos are well under 2 hours (some under 1 hour) so there should be time. Just my thoughts.

And yes, it was the realistic settings that appealed to me too. Those dungeons got really old. But a doctor's office, a motel room... fantastic!

Comments: Wow. Thanks for your response and for this great new thread. The first ZFX flick I saw was Meanstreak with Allison Parrish. I remember looking at the selections of weak and tame bondage movies at the porn shop and being stopped in my tracks by the 3 or 4 ZFX flicks they had. The covers showed real stuggling, which none of the others did, and I had to see one. I must tell you, Allison Parrish was truely a babe, and it was all girl-girl (which I like), with Allison being a spectacular sexy bitch mistreating the other girl. I went back and promptly rented Scene of the Crime, and Victoria Vixxen in breast bondage blew my socks of. ZFX has since been my favorite producer.

Comments: I started with 3 vids, Alien Probe and Alien Probe 2, and the original Guinea Pigs (and if you are just starting ZFX, that these are a good way to start!). Bon-Vue had just started selling ZFX at the time, I think it was around '92 but couldn't swear to it.

I had been wanting a good bondage film for a few years at that point. A friend of mine at a local video store got me a copy of AVN. It had an add for Bon-Vue in it. They sold the usual master-slave very tame stuff, but they also kept sending me catalogs. One of them had ZFX in it. The box art and descriptions got me interested right away, and it didn't take me long to realize I was really onto something. One note: I did like the old box art better. It was straight and clean, easily seen and the imagery right in your face. A lot of the newer boxes seem too busy, and not as easily followed or even differentiated, because they are alike in their busy-ness. Just my take.

You know, I've seen a lot posted here about the "ZFX" formula, or how Rick has gotten too formulaic in his stuff. I think the truth might be a little more that Rick has been plugging along the whole time, and we just hadn't ever seen anything like what he does before. He's still pretty much the only game in town for what he does, but we are more used to it now, so the shock has just faded a bit. Remembering back to those first ZFX vids, I do remember being wowed. If I was just discovering ZFX today, it would probably still happen.

Peace,

Gary, thanks for the words on Chandra. I'll never watch her tit tortue the same way again (smile).

Maximum DeSade was my first. Yes, the bed scene was classic - I have seen that tape only once, when it first came out, and still remember it.

The great thing about Rick's films is even when they're bad, they're good. A particular tape may miss a little of this or a little of that which we like, but I cannot remember seeing a single tape which didn't have at least some moments of attraction.

Comments: Great discussion, guys. Keep going!

I first got acquainted with ZFX videos about a year ago. I had found this video store several years earlier which had thousands of bondage tapes for inexpensive rental. So I had watched a lot of these. My favorites were the early HOM and some japanese stuff, but there was only a limited number of these in stock, so I also watched lots of not-so-good tapes. The main problem was that nothing much happened in most of these videos, I was forced to imagine what it could be like instead of just enjoying. Plus, it was all consentual, 'More please, mistress' type stuff.

As I tend to not rent anything with ugly and/or modified girls (piercings, balloon boobs, shaved pussys, etc) I was having an increasingly difficult time choosing tapes. Then something good happened. The store had begun to buy ZFX and Shockwave videos. I can't remember exactly which one I watched first, but I think it was 'Witchunt'. Whoa Momma!, that's more like it. I mean, here was this droog capturing, strip-searching, tying up, whipping and forcing the witch to sit on a dildo chair. Ultraviolence. Real horror-show like. No more imagining, this was what they were supposed to be like. And the girl was Candi Licks, just the type of body I prefer.

Pretty soon I was watching ZFX almost exclusively. Other early ones were Trojan horse, Jennifer's nightmares, Underland (with Kimberly Nobel in an outstanding table scene), War pigs, Subject 9, Toolbox abductions. I remember spending a lot of time watching the trailers at the end, looking for what to look at next. I believe I have watched about 50 shows, that's an average of one a week. Not bad, and at this rate there still is at least another year's worth of material ahead.

propos modified girls. I am very pleased that there are very few of Rick's models with metal in their pussy, nipples, and tongue. Also, there are lots of girls with natural breasts, and the boob-jobs on the rest are not too horrible. However, I do think there are too many shaved girls. Aside from the fact that I don't like the look, which is a personal opinion which I know a lot of viewers don't share, don't you think that it is rather unrealistic in most of these films? I think a shaved pussy practically screams 'adult model' or 'slave', which kind of ruins the 'abduction-and-torture-of-innocent-girl' type scenario which is most often pictured, and which I enjoy immensely.

What do you all think?

Comments: I actually like the shaved pussy look, maybe it doesn't have to be totally shaved, but I like it neatly trimmed, so I can see those pussy lips when the clothespins are attached to them! I was wondering, are there any videos that show more breast torture?? Like in a lot of bondage pics they show women with breasts tied up with rope so they swell up...that would be a major turn on...the clothespins on nipples is ok...but i like the rope better

Comments: Regarding shaving. I prefer "neatly trimmed" although there is a strong asthetic appeal to no hair at all. I do agree though that the totally shaved look plays against the innocent girl next door plot lines, (scenarios that are very interesting indeed.) One thing I would like to see (this might have been brought before) is a forced shaving scenario. After capture by white slavers, aliens, evil men or whatever works best, place the woman on a table, spread her and shave her. This would be especially exciting if we have never seen the actress fully shaved before. (Like...hmmm, that just might be Lisa...). One of my favorite aspects of ZFX (and hardly mentioned on the board but I think you will agree that it is essential) is the forced stripping scenes. More than just a means to an end (nakedness) the forced strippings at its their best reveal not just the removal of clothing but of layers of dignity. The forced shaving scenarios could be an expansion on this theme.

Comments: .I would like to start another thread if I might. What is your first experience with tying up a girl. I admit that my younger sister and her girlfrieds all had a stint or two tied and gagged at my house when the parents were away. Then high school, college etc. I am really fasinated to learn about guys like Jay Edwards, Bryan Davis, and especially Rick Masters and their very early days of tie up games. When and where did all this start? How about it Rick (and everyone else) any little sisters in the family??

Comments: Hey all, it's been a while since last posting....someone dropped a cross in my coffin and couldn't get to the computer. Seems like a whole lot going on lately. A lot of new topics and posters including Gary Roberts. Where to start?

First ZFX flick seen. Had a similar mis-hap as Ralphus (well sort of) in my first attempt to watch a ZFX flick. Got so tired and bored w/all the lame material out at the time when I took a closer look at the description to "Alien Probe". Looked really interesting so I started paying attention to the ZFX listings in the Bon Vue catalogs that I was getting regularly. Then I saw the description for "Panticide Peepshow II". I'm thinking , no, this sounds too good to be true (I also like elements of asphyxia mixed with my bondage.....mention of Chandra getting bagged!!!)! So I place my order. When my package arrives the box and label is for the right video but the actual tape is "Art of Darkness" (way to go Rick...just kidding). Start watching the vid until I discover this fact....major bum out. I call Bon Vue and tell them the story. "Didn't you like it?" they ask. Well I didn't watch it I tell them (I may be demented and a perv but I have my honer). "Well why don't you watch it and if you don't like it call us back and we'll arrange to get it exchanged". So I watched it and even though it dosen't compare with my "now" ZFX standards, it was great by comparison to all the lame shit out there. To put it in a nut shell, I was hooked!, and the rest is history.

Gary Roberts, Stopped by your site. Although I'm not into bondage art so much you got some great stuff. About you're intent to discontinue your videos due to poor sales. One of the reasons may be that there's not alot of exposure to let anyone know you have any videos (I never knew of any). People stopping by your site might just be those who are into the bondage art thing. You got some great looking women and I hope to purchase one of your vids in the near future, I'd hate to see you give up on putting those hotties on vid. Maybe see what happens now that that the people that stop in here for extreme bondage info and dialog know it's out there.

I also enjoyed reading about Chandra and the video you mentioned.....Where can I get a copy????

Shaved! Love the look of shaved pussy. I must ad though that I do not see a connection with women who shave their pussies and automatically associating them with the bondage lifestyle. And gotta ad that the suggestion for Lisa to appear with, or as a fellow poster suggested, have her shaved on screen while bound. Sounds pretty good to me. Or maybe to take the suggestion even further, with Rick's and Lisa's thought's on this, and since she stops by every so often, maybe have her judge a contest where the participants offer scenes they'd like to see her in. Have her pick the winner (by her criteria...whatever that may be), and have Rick incorporate it into a story line that will match one of the projects he's working on at the time. I've already mentioned a scene I'd like to see her in during the last time she stopped in (I know I'll lose). So any chance Rick...What'ya think? Pipe dream I know but you know me....Gotta try.

Speaking of Lisa...is it just me or does Lisa remind any one else of Jessica Alba a little bit. Maybe some Dark Angel type scenarios (even though I've never watched the show).

Hey Ralphus, got your copy of Gary's vid yet? let us know your impressions when you get a chance. Speaking of impressions (really meaning reviews) I stopped in at Slave Labor Productions the other day just to see whats happening. They are offering some hardcore bondage vids of late. One of them a pretty good looking brunette staring in it blindfolded, tied and having oral forced on her. You seem to have to low down on all the vids I asked about in the past. Any info on these?

Since on the topic of video information, a while back there was some dialog and promised reviews by some forum contributor (sorry, can't remember exactly who) who had ordered some videos from a european company(?) that offered what looked pretty torturous videos in a dungeon like setting. Does anybody remember which ones I'm reffering to? Did I just miss the reviews or did they not posted? Info please if any.

Well, got to go.

Later.

Comments: AvF: When I say poor sales, I mean poor. In comparison, my CD of BDSM art supports the entire overhead and turns a profit. The two vids are yet to pay for themselves. Out of all the sales on my sites' order page, the CD has out-sold BOTH videos at about 10 to 1. There is no one to blame but me. I chose to get back into video at a very bad time. Its a glut market, and since the late 80s / early 90s when Rick started ZFX and I started with Scarry, prices have fallen in the toilet, and where there used to be 3 or 4 producers, theres 3 or 4 dozen, all competing for the same market. I don't think its an awareness problem, I just don't think anyone cares. My counters measure visitors and page hits, and in the time since I put the vids on blowout sale at $30, most of the visitors to my site go to the vids and look. Thats 1500 a day. I sell 2 vids a week. Figure it out. I thought I was doing exactly what everyone was hungry for. Abduction, kidnap, bondage, slow torturous stripping, forced sex, with nice looking girls.....Guess not. These two may or may not dissappear, as I'm fielding deals for buyouts right now, so I'll keep you informed on availability through other outlets if I sell out. But they are definitely coming off my site.

MY first ZFX film??? I can't remember the title. I was in Liberty Video in Orlando and saw this clamshell box with a sleeve label and it looked real cheezy but there's this chick all tied up and I'm like "hmmmmm"....Its in some old house and some guys wrestling the little Blonde chick with the headband in the kitchen, some other brunette (chunky) gets tied to the fence sitting outside...it was crude, but the struggling, screaming action was there. I watched "taking of Christina" and it was pretty OK, a bit long...but the payoff was the cum-gushing dildo forced into her mouth at the end....I find Ricks work kind of off-on at times. Some days he ROCKS. Some days his stuff meanders around aimlessly. With the back catalog he's got now, I'd like to see him slow down and put more quality in, but that's just me. Rick probably thinks like I do when someone makes a suggestion on how to make his next film: pull out your checkbook dude, I'll shoot whatever you can pay for. Anyway, nuff o dat...

Comments: AvF: I just got my copy of Gary's tape, "Bitch Training #1" in the mail yesterday, so I haven't seen it yet, but I'll try to take a look this week. It has an impressive cover box, I'll say this much.

Regarding the Slave Labor Productions hardcore bondage tapes, this was the first I heard about them, but we'll find out something before long. I ordered both of them! Thanks for the tip, and thanks for "forcing" me to spend more money. :o) Really, they aren't cheap; $60 apiece but I'm willing to pay if they are quality tapes, and again, the stills and the descriptions gave me the hint that they may be worthwhile.

Awhile back, Mad Dog mentioned Bizarre Video as a possible source for new hardcore bondage vids. He beat me to the punch, because a week before his post, I had already ordered four of the tapes listed there. I had seen some of the stills on a newsgroup and my interest was piqued. I've seen two of the tapes so far. The good one of the two is "After School Surprise", with a school girl (legal age, but dressed in a school uniform. Fetishist alert!) getting attacked and raped by a masked intruder. The girl is very pretty, in spite of a huge tattoo on the small of her back. The tape starts very slowly (maybe I was just impatient) as she walks home, reads a book, takes a shower and finally goes to sleep. The attack occurs as a dream sequence. She's chloroformed, then stripped on her bed and fondled by her attacker. All this happens while she's unconscious, but when she wakes up, the real fun begins and the tape lurches forward into overdrive. The guy gags her with tape, ties her spreadeagled to the bed, makes her suck his cock, rapes her while she's still tied, and finishes by cumming on her face. The last 20 minutes of the vid are excellent, and make up for the tedious beginning. Plus, it's only $22, so it's a good bargain as well. Worth the money.

The other one I saw was called "Doctor Ruthless" and it's not quite up the level of the other tape. It's about an Ilsa-like "Dragon Lady" who tortures a male POW during the war. He escapes and turns the tables on her. The biggest debit is the older blonde actress in the lead never quite plays scared right, so the impact is somewhat muted. Plus the tape wastes too much time on the POW and in fact, the coolest tortures are administered to HIM, and not her! Still, there's hardcore bondage sex and rape scenes, and that improves any tape! So far, the producers have proved to me that they do rape right, but not necessarily torture. I still have two more to watch, so I'll give you more insight later. I put their website address in my Homepage URL.

On a totally unrelated point, over on alt.sadistic someone reposted 4 mpegs called "Nettles", showing a man torturing a bound naked girl with stinging nettles. Man, can that bitch scream! The four clips total about 20 minutes, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the source of the clips, and whether they were part of a longer video. I would love to have a copy of the whole thing! And if you haven't seen these mpegs, run to alt.sadistic and download them. They are some of the nastiest, and therefore best, bondage torture clips I have ever seen online.

Comments: First ZFX film I saw (around 1991?) was "Hellbound" -- It was OK, but I really liked one of the actresses, I believe her name was Shelly Micheals. Nobody mentions her on this forum, but I thought she was really cute.

A year or so later I got a copy of "Hardbound TV", also with Shelly Michaels and another film not mentioned much here. As I recall it was pretty good. Next came "Guinea Pigs" with Alison Parish, another of my favorites.

Question for Rick -- some years back I saw "Girlz of ZFX", with straight sex, girl-girl, some of it with a little bondage edge. Why not do another version of this, actual sex with as much bdsm content as you can get away with. I'm sure not all the girls would participate, but some surely would -- and a lot of us would buy it.

Ever thought about doing a Girlz II ?

Comments: Ralphus and Scribbler: I rented the video just last week, it is called 'Bed of stinging nettles'. I think it is pretty good, with outdoor bondage (always a good thing) and a pretty girl who, as you say, can really scream. There is some stripping while in bondage and a lot of nettle torture, including a 'nettle bed' which she is forced to lie on (back and front) while bound.

At the end there is an address for more information: Book & Film International, P.O. box 4099, 3502HB Utrecht, The Netherlands. There is also a link to a website called www.clubextreme.com, which looks like a standard paysite.

Hope this helps.

The website URL turned out to be fruitless, but a Dogpile search for "Bed of Stinging Nettles" resulted in my finding the tape from a distributor in the Netherlands. I attempted to save the URL and post it here, but everytime I try to go there now, I get booted off by an error in their system! So if you want to attempt your own search, go ahead, but beware. I got through the first time and ordered the vid ($55, not bad) but the next four attempts got me knocked off...

Laughingboy: alt.sadistic is a newsgroup. There are thousands of newsgroups out there for just about any interest you can name.

Your point about the wording of my order instructions....it's not INTENDED to mean I don't ship to PO boxes, its intended to mean that overseas shipping arrangements have to be made directly with me due to various customs issues and shipping charges, but I'm glad you pointed out that area of possible mis-understanding and it will be changed.

Comments: Mad Dog, I went to forbidden video and ordered every tape except "Dr. Ruthless," not only because of Ralphus's description of it, but I just don't find the blond in it to be all that appealing, even if she does get raped. So I'll be letting you all know what I think of them also. Hey, the more reviews the better, right?

I got three of them in the mail today and just finished watching "After School Surprise." First of all, to answer your question, yes, they do show penetration while she is tied up. Both oral and vaginal. He even sticks his finger up her ass quite a bit.

Ralphus summed it up very well. It starts off boring. I mean you actually watch her reading, and it lasts a while till she starts fingering herself, but if I want to see a chick fingering herself I'll just get straight vanilla porn. Then she takes a shower. HOT DAM, what a body on this chick! I mean she is REALLY good looking, and her tattoo didn't distract me in the least.

After the guy chloroforms her she does a very good job of playing passed out. Usually you notice a girl helping out the attacker by moving with him when they pretend to be knocked out, but this chick was totally limp the whole time, very convincing. My only complaint is something Rick has brought up before, and that is when she wakes up, the tape gets pulled off her mouth, and until he replaces the tape she does some fairly lame protesting, but not completely horrible, you could just tell she knew she should be saying something and couldn't really think of what to say. But like I said, it's totally forgivable, just noticeable.

One other observation about it, and this isn't a negative, just an observation for those of you considering the purchase. Now I can only speak for the one video I've watched so far, but if you were to compare it to ZFX, the main difference is that the hard edge where the attacker is really rough with the woman and simply uses the woman to get his rocks off with almost no regard for her at all isn't there. I know this sounds silly, but I would call this a gentle rape. No real manhandling to speak of, fairly gentle, hell, he even kisses her on the lips a couple of times. Don't get me wrong, it's a very convincing rape, just a different tone from those in ZFX. Shit, it's all good to me, I'm just saying it's a different vibe, but still a very good one. Well worth the money in my book.

Of course when I watch the other video's this gentle vibe may not be present. "Trick or Treat" looks like it could be a rough one, and it's next on my list. I'll let you all know what I thought of it when I'm done.

Peace,

Comments: Hello to all!

I've been outta town for 10 days shooting some new stuff in the frozen wasteland of Minneapolis! Yep, we were back in the historic underbelly of the fabulous Lickety Split adult book store in the Twin Cities. Dam its fucking cold up there! It may be a while before you see this stuff, but you have alot to look forward to:)>Along with hot veteran performers Kelly Mckay and Kimberly Noble I was able to shoot 4 brand new babes that are so hot theyll make your TV melt! Assisting me in this quest for the holy grail of pornography was our very own web master Mad Dog, both in front and behind the scenes, as well as cast of other ruthless dudes to do the dirty work. We had alot of fun, (except for a few rather difficult moments), and accomplished alot. I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out and hearty pat on the back to the crew of the store, the performers, Travis Lee and "Broadway" Bob who provided us a great opportunity to shoot. If your in the Minneapolis area, you owe it to your self to pay Lickety Split a visit, its really a great place and has one of the sweetest and most expansive bondage selections around.:D

BTW everything is still looking good for a Jan 15th release of SOB5: In the Flesh. Working on update and cover, should be some stuff on Fantasy Foods site very soon.

Ok, this is a new one on me, WTF is a bed of stinging nettles??? Inquiring minds want to know?

Gary: Hiya! Nope, good ole Liberty is still there, the earth DID swallow it, then thought better of it and promptly regurgitated it. I dunno who owns it now, I think its changed hands a few times.

Shaved or unshaved? I like the neatly trimmed bush with pussy lips and asshole shaved, I think it definitely serves the innocent victim theme better. A shaved pussy screams I'm a freak, which tends to work against the suspension of disbelief.

Ok, thats it for now, gotta got get some last minute shopping taken care of. Happy holidays to all, thanks to all those who read here, post and watch he shows!

Regards,

Rick

Comments: Rick, a bed of stinging nettles is like a bed of roses, except with stinging nettles instead, you know the plants which make you regret you decided to wear shorts when walking in the woods.

I am glad we agree on the pussy issue. Which makes me wonder, do you have any influence over the appearance of the models? Could you argue the realism aspect with them, or would you just be laughed off the set?

cheers, and thank you for making these films, and for taking the time to post to this board.

Comments: Ralphus, You da man! Thanks for sharing the info on the Forbidden Video site. There are a lot of vids that I want to get, such as at least one from Gary's site, and the new one's from Slave Labor, but have been putting them off because of the holiday budet crunch. I however could not resist ordering "After School Surprize" after visiting the site. Looks really good and along with your and Howie's reviews, just had to pick it up (even though the pictures show the victim with socks on, I was sold by your mention of a facial finish....always a plus!). Forbidden's other site (Bizzaro Video) looks really interesting also. There was a mainstream (?) torture movie (I can't remember the name now) that was brought up a few times on the forum in the past. After visiting the site I finally know what you guys are talking about. Looks like 2001 is going to be an expensive year, with ZFX's latest instalment of the SOB series coming out that is a must buy from judging from Ricks descriptions along with all the other ones I want to get.

On subject of wanting to get.....where can I get "Bound and Abused".....or whatever the title is?. The Chandra flick that Gary's been talking about. Come on guys share the wealth. Let us know. And about other sites and sources.

On the subject of input on crotch appearance...I would imagine there's only one direction you could ask to go...after all if it's shaved already it's kinda hard to insist on hair if you're gonna shoot in the imidiate future.

Later.

Comments: Rick: 1 question, one comment:

1. Is Christina Anderson in the new Lickety Split stuff?

2. To quote Homer Simpson (well, sorta), Mmmmmmm, Kim Noble....

Howie, to quote (well, probably paraphrase, I don't have the exact quote handy) Leonardo DaVinci, "If the procreation of the species depended on the physical beauty of the genitalia, mankind would become extinct in a generation." I've never really agreed with him, but have noticed that a lot of women that work out a lot shave. It doesn't make them freaks; just more body-concious than the average gal(scary, isn't it). I could see girls shaved that way used for movies that involve gym equipment or nabbing runners, or other serious hardbodies, maybe. Other than that, I probably would have to agree with Rick about shaving.

Happy Holidays,

Comments: "Bound and Abused"...I don't even have a copy of that anymore, and I wouldn't know where to look. If as Rick says, Liberty Video has changed hands in Orlando, that was the only lead. "Alex Scarry" was the Owner, and if he's not there, I don't know where he is. I don't think anybody has distributed Scarry Video in years. I'd love to get a copy again if anyone finds it, just to watch my very own lips, tongue, and hands all fucking over blonde Chandras' bare tits...

And I'll throw in my 2 cents on the thread....shaved? Fuck no. Nothing says underage like no pussy hair, and personally I'm not attracted to children. I LOVE young, but not illegal. PLUS, any of you guys ever hear the pitch of the shrieks they let out when you get a grip on about 5 pussy hairs and give them a brisk yank? OOOO, I'm hard just thinking about it...If you're a true sadistic freak like me, you come to appreciate that muff for it's true value....

That's a funny quote. Never heard that one before. I don't think I made a comment on the pussy hair subject one way or the other though, but it's easy to get all the names in here mixed up, I know, I've done it before to. (^_^)

Since we're discussing it though, my feelings on the subject are that totally bald is kind of a freaky look in my book, and I definitely don't like all natural jungle bush, Ahhhhh, to much hair, not a good thing. I like'em trimmed and neat.

I'm about half way through "Trick or Treat," right now, and I'll have a full review soon, but what I've seen so far is REALLY good. Since were on the subject I should probably add that the Red Head in this one, who by the way is AMAZING looking, is completely shaved. Like I said, that's not my favorite look, but by no means a deal breaker. It's like a pizza without pepperoni, I'm still goanna eat the shit, and like it! : )

Comments: Hey everybody,

Well I think I finally recovered from the shoot to share with you guys my experiances from Ricks trip.

It was a lot of fun except that when he came up he brought the snow and cold with him and he did'nt take them back with him. Never mind that Minnesota is always cold and snowy, this year I am blaming it on Rick.

Let me just say that the footage that we shot up here was probally some of the best that Rick has ever shot. I think you guys will really like it.

There was some new faces as well as some of the greats. There is a couple cuties that I know you guys will really dig. Unfortunately Christina Anderson is not in any of this new footage.

Gary, I am glad that you found this board and are willing to share with us your experiances.

Very interesting thread we have here- Pubic Hair - Although it probally wasnt intentional. Well here is my viewpoint on it. I have seen a lot of porn and been around a lot of strippers so to me a shaved bush seems totally normal. I guess you could look at it like a beard.

The real bushy and untrimmed ones remind me of a homeless person who is dirty and dosent take good care of themselves.

A well trimmed one but bushy looks better but still makes you wonder what they are hiding underneath.

Then there are the ones that are light and nicely groomed. They give a hint of whats underneath but in a nice package.

The ones that are mostly shaved allow you to see what you are doing. (although when they have the racing stripe that is just not natural. At least make the shape look like what it is supposed to look like.)

As far as the shaves ones, I guess that it dosent really bother me, and I dont necessarily associate them with young underage girls. (just my opinion) I guess that I see them as more adventerous ones that are willing to try something new.

My preferance other than the bushy ones, as long as they look and smell good I will take them all.

Well thats it for now. If you guys have any questions give me a holler.

Peace All

Comments:

I've been watching porn too long, or maybe dating girls who are wilder than the norm, but to me shaved looks normal and a bush unnatural. Shaved doesn't scream "freak" at me at all.

Nor does it give me any underage vibe - yuk. What it connotes in my mind is an easier time doing some delicious cunt-lapping without hairs going up my nose and making my nose run or making me sneeze. I.e., it strikes me as hygenic, and a courtesy to the girl's lovers, and a desire for and enjoyment of oral pleasuring.

Tho I will add that there is something to be said for that short-hair yanking, as Gary said.

On a different topic, while a few of us picked up on the thread about first ZFX flik seen, not many responded about their real life experiences. Without going into too much detail, I will say, yes, little sisters in my background and especially their friends, also lots of real time experience from college forward with many different women. I've rarely had a girl say no, like I said I must attract the freaks but they all seem to like the idea. One thing I found along the way, and for those of you not into "love bondage" you'll probably puke, but what I found is that if you make sure a significant amount of the BDSM is for HER pleasure, not yours, they will keep coming back for more. In other words, don't tie up your girlfriend and just keep shoving your cock down her throat. Tie her up and pleasure her a lot, and she won't mind your occasionally abusing her for your own selfish pleasure.

Okay public service announcement is over. Just thought the younger ZFX fans in here without much RT experience needed an encouraging word or two.

Comments: Happy holidays to all. Thank you for the tips on alt. services. When I was younger, I tied up my girlfriends regularly. It always suprised me how often I was able to talk women into it. In my 20's I had a relationship with a women in my office. She was into spanking. I added bondage to her game. One time we were in a motel. She was tied, spread eagle, face-down, with two pillows under her hips. I decided to tease her by going to get a coke but leaving the room door open. The door opened directly outdoors into a parking lot. I was able to get back before anyone who might happen to stroll by (but she didn't know that). When I returned, I circled round and approached from another direction pretending to be someone else. When I peeked around the corner, the size of her eyes told me my ruse worked. What fun.

Question for Rick:

I don't buy flix, I rent. I have seen almost every ZFX production, but I have never seen "Jennifer's Nightmares" and have never seen it on the shelves of any video store. Is this just happenstance, or did you have to yank it? Several years ago, there were reports on the TV news about that flik. My memory is hazy on this one, but there was a middle-aged guy in upstate New York who was a teacher or guidance counselor or something who had the hots for one of his teenage students, named Jennifer. He was arrested, I don't remember the exact charge, but it had something to do with his planning to kidnap the girl and take her to a remote cabin and have his way with her. The TV news said he had a copy of Jennifer's Nightmares and all kinds of bondage type gear.

I'm assuming, Rick, that you know about this. What I wondered was whether it caused any difficulty for you, had to lay low for a while or whatever. If you don't want to talk about it, I understand. You Thomas Jefferson erotica- makers on the front lines of retaining American freedom risking your skins I think deserve our support and encouragement, and my guess is that type of negative publicity doesn't come up often but is the type of thing which the bible thumpers will whip out to say, "See, we told ya so."

Another question for Rick:

A number of posters, myself included, have expressed appreciation for your former no bondage but actual-sex flick, and have wished you would do something like that again. Would you some time? It would be nice to see some of the current crop of starlets like Lisa doing the deed for real.

One thing I have noticed on some web sites is that they will include photos of chicks tied up but not having sex, and the same chick in fetish gear but not tied up, this time having sex. It's as though their thinking is, it's illegal to show sex plus bondage, but if we show the juxtaposition of bondage without sex, and then the same girl still wearing fetish gear having sex but no bondage, we will stay within the letter of the law and yet cause the bondage-sex association in our viewer's minds.

So, my corollary question to the above one (re doing another all-sex vid) is, could you see yourself doing a part sex, part bondage vid? Example of such a plot: Girlfriend (let's call her Lisa) is having sex with Boyfriend (let's call him Rick) on Christmas Eve. He wants to tie her up or do anal or something, and she says no, and they have a fight. He complains that she's not freaky enough in bed, won't do anal, won't let herself be tied up, won't let her friend (let's call the friend Chandra, mmm, Lisa dn Chandra, now there's a potent combination) Chandra join in, even though Chandra has been giving vibes she might be interested. Rick leaves, Lisa cries, it's Christmas Eve and her boyfriend has left her.

Cut to Christmas morning, Lisa goes to her Christmas tree and there are stacks of presents. She smiles, thinks Rick came back in the night with presents for her. As she opens them, she sees they are all bondage gear, whips, gags, nipple clamps etc. As she is looking them over, horrified/attracted, some mask-wearing villian grabs her from behind and starts doing all these wild things to her. While he is doing his thing Chandra stops by with presents for her friend. The villian grabs Chandra and does her too, forces the two to do lesbian sex together, etc. He finally leaves and they free themselves, convinced it was Rick. Later Rick comes by to make up. Lisa and Chandra are all hot and bothered and want him to make them do all the things they ordinarily won't do, like he did before. Rick starts doing so (i.e. the flik returns to filmed real sex) but says that wasn't me.

A typical corny ZFX type plot, you get the idea (and I give up all copyrights, smile, its yours if you want it) but with moments of real sex, non-bondage, rather than simulated sex.

Something you could see yourself doing, Rick, i.e. combining sex plus bondage in the same flik, but not in the same moments in the flik?

This posting is getting long, another thought in the next one...

Comments:

I may have mentioned this here before, but anyway in relation to the type of film I have suggested, if you did sprinkle some actual sex scene into one of your otherwise BDSM vids, Rick, one thing you could do and which I have never seen anyone else do is during those real-sex scenes include some lengthy portions where bondage is implied, i.e the girl is on her back spread-eagled and things are being done to her and you have the impression she is tied to the bed posts, but every so often you pan out to show that she is in fact untied (to keep it legal). One of my pet peeves in mainstream porn flix is that sometimes you'll get a scene where the impression begins that the girl is tied (maybe an on-the-knees blowjob where her arms are at her sides and the viewer can start to fantasize that she is bound, or maybe she is on her back on the bed getting fucked and her arms are stretched over her head), and as a viewer with BDSM appreciation you start getting turned on cuz it looks like she is bound, and then after just a second or two she suddenly places her arms/hands back into view and the illusion is gone.

In my opinion, possibly shared by other posters here, rather than trying to ramp up your flix with corny slo-mo scenes, or with turn-off punched-bloody scenes, you might be able to turn the flix up a notch by including some actual-sex scenes and ones where (while keeping legal and frequently showing that the girl is not actually bound during the real-sex scene) you keep the illusion of bond actual-sex going longer than most producers do.

Again, I'm a renter not a buyer, nor do I buy from the net, for all I know these types of movies (or ones with sex plus bondage) are a dime a dozen out there for mail order. But they are nowhere to be seen for customers like me whose access is purely through the video storefronts. Just an idea

Comments: JEEEEEEEZZZUUUSSSSSSS..............somebody needs to get a girlfriend SOON.....WAY too much time on yer hands there buzz....

Lets see how many armchair patriots show up in all of our defense at the Federal Courthouse......I'm going to jump all over some of this stuff, so if Rick gets annoyed, so be it, but we're kindred spirits he and I, so I think I can..... I have done a LOT of research on what is and is NOT legal to do in a porn movie, and theres the rub. The law NEVER specifically tells you what NOT to do. It is not written ANYWHERE that you can't tie a girl up and fuck her in a movie. If that were the case, the producers of Shannon Whirry's "body of influence" would be in jail for the dream scene where she is quite obviously tied naked to a bed and a horny little chicano is pounding her ham silly while she screams....THAT WAS ON CINEMAX, BUCKY!

No its MUCH worse...They want it grey. They don't tell us what we can't do. They just say "Obscenity". It is illegal to produce, possess, sell, distribute, OBSCENE material. But what is obscene? Thats thier weapon. Every judge has a different opinion. Every prosecutor and cop too. If you ask my lawyer or Ricks or anyones what is the sure way to make adult films and not go to jail, the answer will always be...DON'T MAKE ADULT FILMS. They rely on that uncertainty and fear to control us. So if theres no fucking in your bondage movies, it IS NOT because the law says we can't. It is because the law doesn't say ANYTHING. It is because we have to out- guess them on everything.....Now the proof of the concept of putting sex in a bondage flick would be its popularity, so to listen to all in this forum, it SHOULD be the hottest instant-millionaire video ever made. Well guess what. I've had 2 vids available for 6 months that both have bondage AND sex, and they don't sell for shit. So THERE. Hey Rick...Don't do it...you won't sell that many more....

Comments: Re: Bondage and sex in adult movies

Gary is right when he says there is no specific law on the books about combining sex with bondage in movies (although, to be fair, "Body of Influence" had only a simulated scene with no hardcore insertion close ups, closer to what ZFX puts out than to your average fuck film). Would a vid that combined bondage and sex really be such a big seller? I'm not so sure. Such a tape would certainly go over big among the pervos who read this page and watch Rick's films, but not everyone gets off seeing women tied up and abused. As strong as our passions may be for liking this sort of entertainment, many others would consider this sick stuff. I know there are a lot of people who really love bondage that consider ZFX too harsh for their tastes. I regularly read a bondage discussion site where most of the members only seem to want the girl tied and gagged, but any kind of violence toward her is a major turnoff. Even to those who regularly watch adult movies may well steer clear of bondage rape films. Face it, we are most likely a small minority of the population. We are enthusiastic about our likes, but we are hardly mainstream.

The question is...what is WRONG with the rest of the world, the ones that can't see the pleasure of watching a hot chick get tied down to a bed and fucked? Hey, I'm a perv, I admit it. I am honest about what I like, and I'm hardly PC, but I'm proud of that distinction. PC is boring, anyway :)

With that in mind, I've been getting some dandy tapes in the mail over the past few weeks, and I thought I'd share some of my observations of them. First off is Gary's tape, "Out All Night?: Bitch Training #1". Well, IMO, this is an above-average bondage tape, and it deserves a bigger audience than it apparently has gotten so far. The girl who stars in it, Kelly, is quite attractive and I can almost forgive her for the omnipresent tattoo on her belly (Does every girl into S&M have to mark up her body like this???). Anyway, it attempts to have a plot, with a short opening segment about her car stalling, and she calls her boyfriend to come pick her up. He gets mad at her for being out all night and takes her back to his dungeon to teach her a lesson.

He ties her standing with her hands over her head, cleave- gags her and cuts her clothing off. There's some whipping and dildo-teasing, as well. The best segment of the tape occurs when he ties her to a special stool, one with an opening in the center. He ballgags her and while she's tied, he rams the dildo into her pussy and works it over good. He follows that up by shocking her with electricity on her pussy and her breast. There's some later candle- waxing, although he uses a white candle and the droplets are barely visible. He also uses the dildo on her while she's tied to a table. After that, he throws her on a bed and they have straight vanilla sex, with no ropes, and the scene climaxes with a cum shot to her face. The ending has its heart in the right place, however, as he finishes with her and leaves her tied up inside a little jail cell, leaving her there as the tape ends.

Overall, it's very watchable, even though the ropework is rather sloppy and frankly, I would have welcomed any kind of bondage in the sex scene, rather than the consensual version that we got instead. Nonetheless, lots of good stuff here. I would give it a B.

Another one I saw recently was "Black Market Bondage" from Forbidden Video, which has gotten some discussion on this board lately. I told you about the first two I saw, and I'll have to say that this is my favorite of the 3 so far. The most important reason is because it stars the same honeypie that was featured in "After School Surprise". Honestly, she's not much of an actress when it comes to actually delivering her lines, but once she's tied up, you couldn't ask for a sweeter victim. The plot doesn't exactly take itself very seriously, but basically it's about a naive girl who gets hired as a receptionist for a company that makes abduction videos. Little does she know that their next video will end up starring her! She gets grabbed at knifepoint while on the phone and tied bent over a table, hands cuffed behind, while her private parts are violated. She is never gagged, but often blindfolded so that she cannot see they are videotaping her. She gets bound standing to a storage rack and penetrated with a metal dildo, then gets the same treatment when tied to a chair. Later she's forced to give a blow job to her attacker and raped on the table, getting a nice cum shot in her mouth. No bondage in the sex scene, but clearly not consensual and therefore a nice way to end the tape. It's in no way believable, but it's lots of fun from beginning to end and accomplishes everything it wants to. And this girl is a sweet little fucktoy. I'd give the whole tape an A-.

Lastly, the new hardcore rape tapes from Slave Labor Productions arrived at my home last week, so I took a look at the first one, "The Rape of Samantha Sweet". At $60, it's a bit pricey, but it delivers. It starts off with the abductor talking to the camera, Ferris Bueller style, about this new girl he grabbed from a disco, and we see her there, locked inside a dog cage. She's a bit feisty at first, but he smacks her and bloodies her lip, which seems to help :) Then he handcuffs her and leads her over to a noose, tightens it over her neck (very cool!) and proceeds to torture her with clothespins on her tits and pussy lips. A great scene, IMO.

He continues his abuse by tying a rope around her neck, and forcing her to either suck his cock or strangle. She chooses the first option. Then he rapes her pussy while she's still handcuffed on the couch, then follows it up by turning her around and buggering her ass. The important distinction is that the victim remains handcuffed throughout nearly the entire tape, even the rape scenes. The tape finishes with a thoroughly degrading, and therefore perfect, ending, as he pisses all over the humiliated girl. As far as rape/bondage videos go, this is one of the very best I've ever seen. It deserves an A. And the other tape I ordered is a sequel to this one, so there's more fun to come :)

This post is already too long, and I'm tired, so that's it for tonight. Good to see that others in the fetish community are producing some good stuff, so that Rick doesn't have to bear the whole load by himself.
