Thanks for the review. I've just ordered my copy and I sure hope it don't take a month! (You listening Quiros?).

I like Summer Knight too. If you don't already have em, I would recommend her in the following flicks:
Revolt of the Slaves (LBO)
Sex Slave(Lyndon/HOM)
The secret Dungeon(Lyndon/HOM)

Gonzo: Noted for the Summer Knight movies! I forgot to add another SUmmer Knight bondage flick I have : Pantyhose Punishement. Very good movie and believable until the end when it falls apart when you find out the kidnapping was wanted and the girls are INTO bondage! Arrrrrghhhh!

Hey, has anyone here seen Perfect Trap, Perfect Trap 2 or The Adventures of O-Girl? They are being offered through

http://www.bondagecafe.com/cart.htm

Not the usual ZFX quality, but the costumes and girls look really good.

"Elaine is hung by her wrists and ankles" -- When a girl is strung up real good, you just can't take your eyes off her. Every inch of her is alive with strain and tension. Muscles and ligaments stand out. Her breasts are thrust out and pulled taut. Her toes are pointed. Her ribs stand out. It's really the best way for tits to be photographed. Perspiration clings to her. Your desire for her increases with every bead of sweat that slowly rolls down that lovely body of hers.

Chase: Wow, poetry :) Beautiful description, man. And I agree with you. Suspension scenes rank way up high for me, too. I can't believe you haven't seen that many ZFX vids, because Rick Masters usually puts at least one suspension scene in his tapes. I've lost count of how many times he's hung a girl up by her wrists, but he usually enhances it with a pretty severe whipping while she thrashes in the air, and no one does this scene consistently better than ZFX.

The suspension scene with Elaine that I'm posting the pictures from had no additional torture, but she pulled it off like a champ, and it looked painful with her strung up like that.

Another classic suspension scene, maybe ZFX's best (high praise indeed), was in Guilty, where Penelope Pace was tied with her wrists over her head while Rick subjects her to beating, whipping and clothespin torment and she takes the whole thing, with barely any editing, for a solid 10 minutes or so. I would think that being suspended like that would have to be plenty painful by itself, without having to deal with being whipped and other tortures to compound it. But heck, Lisa Kinkaid has performed this stunt countless times, most notable in Ballista 2 where she's first strung up and whipped, then later hung up again and stung over and over with shocks from the violet wand. These girls really earn their money.

This is mainly a question for Rick. Unlike insex and Dan Hawke vids, where the goal seems to be capturing actual moments of pain on video, I'm guessing actually hurting the actresses isn't the ZFX goal, but just making it look or appear like it does.

So in the whipping scenes, what kind of whips or other implements are you using so as to keep the actual hurt at a minimum? Are they special made? Are they Nerf? Or are the girls just willing and saying "yeah, go ahead, hurt me, i don't care, I can take it?"

Lou: House of 1000 Corpses been on my must-see list for a while, and it does come out on DVD on August 12, so it won't be long to wait. Brian's Page (see link above) has a description in the database, although it does say that the bondage is of the dark, bloody, grizzly variety. Still, there are supposed to be five different girls that get cleave-gagged in the movie, so it's most likely worth checking out.

Another mainstream title I want to see is Wrong Turn with the gorgeous babe Eliza Dushku, due out on DVD next month. In this one, she is cleave-gagged and tied to a bed with barbed wire (that oughta sting) and threatened with a knife to her throat. I saw a fuzzy mpeg of the scene and she does some great crying and screaming and looks hot as ever, which makes sense because it is Eliza Dushku, after all.

Paul, I agree that Elaine looks very good in the 2 SOB movies she's been in. She also acts really well, reminding me a bit of Allison Parrish, which is no little compliment. She really seems like she is suffering, and the scene where she had to suck that dildo on the chair in SOB6 was awesome. I'd love to see her in one of Rick's mad scientist with a sex potion movies. I think she'd do a really good job of it.

Thanks for the compliment, Ralphus.

I wonder if Rick Masters would ever consider doing a compilation of his best suspension scenes.

I know I'd pay a few bucks for an entire video or DVD containing a string of scenes featuring atractive women hung by her wrists.

Nice run of pictures of Elaine's suspension scene. For those who have not seen it yet, the pictures tell only half the story. Its the sounds coming out of her gagged mouth that send this scene into my all time ZFX top twenty. Rick has mentioned the importance of sound before and his work definatly shows his appreciation for this element.

Re forced feeding- Penelope Pace's scene in Blunt Trauma-2 sets the standard. Lisa's in SOB-7 doesn't come close to its intensity (BT-2's really does look forced). It is high on my list when the DVD's are availiable.

on Dan Hawke Videos & DVD's - 25% Off!!!

You asked for it, and now you got it!

At long last the time has come to offer my videos/DVD's to the great folks from the GIMP board at a special low price -- in fact the lowest price ever available until now!

To celebrate the fact that, in collaboration with the fine folks at Bound & Delivered, I have just increased the discount offered to members of my web site from 10% to 25% (a $50 DVD is now $37.50), I have decided to offer these same savings to my fellow GIMPers for a two-week period which ends on August 23rd, 2003.

All you have to do is click on the above link.

I'm hoping that a few of you who haven't yet taken a chance on my videos will give them a try. If you like the vids you can lock in the 25% savings by becoming a member of my site.

Ralphus has reviewed some of my tapes and others have been discussed on the GIMP board so if you search back for "Hawke" you should find some info about my products.

The discount applies to every item in my catalog. So if you ever thought of giving my stuff a try, now is definitely the time!

Thanx to all of you for a lot of fun discussion over the past few years!

However, as a GIMP additional bonus, I will go with BUY 5, GET 6th free. Select five of the videos, and then checkout. In the message section write "GIMP Special - 6 for 5 price - " and the # of the Dan Hawke video you want.

Now GIMPers have the best offer of all! But only for two weeks!!!

Dan: Thanks for the great discount offer. Good to see that another bondage producer is taking up Gonzo's idea about giving a discount to GIMP members. Steve at Forbidden did it first, and I wonder how successful it was for him? He doesn't post here much anymore, but I know at least a few people posted and said they bought from him during that sale.

This really is a great time to sample Mr. Hawke's wares. He has a lot of great titles in his inventory, especially (IMO) Lashing Liz, Bound on Blonde and Lass and the Lash. I haven't seen as many as I would like, so this seems like a perfect opportunity, especially since so many of his older titles are now available on DVD for the first time.

A few of my Dan Hawke reviews are at the URL above.

Name: Gonzo

I'm secretly hoping that Dan gets enough of a bump in business to suggest maybe ALWAYS selling his wares a bit cheaper. $50 is a lot to pay for a DVD.

Havig said that, I going to recommend Interludes of Agony III (which I paid $50 for and don't regret). In this case the money was worth it. The first scene with Rhiannon is definately a keeper, not just because of the great job she does screaming through the gag. Not just because of the way she really conveys a revulsion of her captor. Not even just because of how great she looks. No, you gotta buy this one to really see how difficult life can be towards our poor bondage film producers (sorry Dan, I been waiting to write about this for a while). Near the beginning, when this beautiful girl is standing tied, with her hands bound behind her. Our man Dan is removing her clothing and gagging her. She's balanced precariously on her heels, with a rope around her neck. The film is rolling.....and some fucktard next door is hammering on something. You can hear it. She can hear it. Dan can hear it. You can tell that Dan would cheerfully castrate this moron in a heartbeat, but you can't just leave models hanging by their necks. And how do you exactly explain to someone that their hammering is messing up a great scene of a girl tied and gagged? You have my sympathies, and don't worry - the scene worked out fine.

Dan: I don't know if it's just cause of my browser, but on the video description pages with thumbnails, if I click on a thumbnail with border, I get a 'page not found.' But then when I go into the URL and change the two backslashes to forward slashes, then I can see the slightly larger pic. If I'm the only one reporting this, then maybe it's only me, but this may be worth looking into anyway.

Gonzo: I agree with you about Rhiannon's scene in Interludes of Agony III. I paid $55 for the DVD and she was the reason why. I was familiar with her from other tapes I had bought off the net, but I wanted to see what Dan would do to her. It's a great segment, easily the best bondage scene I've seen from her. Dan coaxed a good performance out of her. Her scene was the highlight of the vid, because she's so damn cute, and she played the victim role perfectly.

The hammering? Yeah, I noticed it, but I don't dwell on it when I watch the scene. Honestly, Dan should have stopped filming and gotten rid of that guy, but it might have broken the intensity of the scene, and I imagine it's hard to go back and capture the magic after a distraction like that.

I just wanted to thank you all for supporting our film 'CUT', I appreciate any kind of feedback I can get on the production. I, personally, thought the alternate basement scene turned out better than the one that made the final product. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Jesse Sorrells also wanted to express his thanks for the support. We really enjoyed making the film so I am glad some of you enjoyed watching it.

For an independent film, this one has more intensity than most commercial bondage tapes, and for fans of our kind of entertainment, I think it's a must-see. I think right now, I'm the only one who's had a chance to watch it, but at least a few others have ordered it and they will discover what I'm talking about. I can see this movie developing into a word-of-mouth hit, and for those who haven't ordered it yet, what the heck are you waiting for? It's less than 20 bucks! Trust me, this one is something special.

I'm looking for recommendations for pay bondage web sites. I am a member of a bunch of Yahoo groups. Given the upheavals going on over there (no more image archiving via the messages), I was thinking about joining a bondage site for which I'd pay to get access. Money is always an issue, so the I'm looking for one or two sites that give maximum bang for the buck (pun intended). One site that I'm considering (don't know if I'm allowed to name names, so I won't) costs about five bucks a month and is automatically rebilled every month. I'd really rather have a site that the consumer must sign up with every month. It can be hard to get yourself off the automatic rebill list. Any suggestions? Chase

Chase: Name names, my man! How else are we going to know which site you're referring to? That said, I wonder what kind of entertainment you're going to get for such a low price. Five bucks is pocket change, and my guess is that you get what you pay for.

If you're looking for bondage artwork, I would recommend DrawingPalace.com -- lots of great pics by some awesome artists. If you want original ZFX-type movies, read my post from July 23 about Brutal Violence. If you want some totally bizarre and unique bondage pictures and movies, Insex has a treasure trove of stuff that will take you months to see everything, as long as you aren't bothered by the consensual aspect of their work.

I'm sure we have other readers who could give you ideas, too. Lurkers, that's your cue.

"DON'T MOVE!!! You're liable to hurt yourself! We wouldn't want THAT to happen now, WOULD we?..."

I just wanted to thank Ralphus again for getting the good word out on our little independent film, CUT. I know a few of you are still waiting to get your hands on a copy, but I ask you to try to stay a bit patient. Us folks in the Cleveland area were hit with a nasty set of storms a while back and some flood damage set back the reproduction and shipping of some orders on the movie. I know Carlos doesn't want to make anyone unhappy, but there's only so much you can do when your basement is temporarily a reservior.

I hope those of you still waiting enjoy it. Don't miss the first version of the basement scene. I personally feel it was our best work. Looking forward to more feedback. And if anyone else is looking to make a movie with a good psychotic villain character, drop me a line! Thanks, and enjoy!

Alright, Ralphus, one site I'm considering is JollyRoper.com. On the regular site they have in-depth reviews of and superb images from mainstream films featuring bondage scenes, such as the unforgettable "Ginger" series. Every time I find a site that looks interesting, they insist upon automatic monthly rebilling, of which I have read horror stories of people stymied in their attempts to unsubscribe.

Hi all,

I saw Chase's question a ways back in the forum about women reading and posting here and felt I should respond. I'm a woman. I don't post to the Dreambook, and mostly I don't have time to read it either. I *do*, however, like the style of material discussed here and find the forum useful as an occasional resource. I understand that as a woman my interest in porn makes me a mutant, and I can deal with that. ;-)

GIMP's Dreambook is useful to me as a way of finding more of the stuff I like. It's here that I first heard of Dan Hawke, for example, (King of the crotch rope) and more recently found out where I can order some of the Bondage Classics tapes I don't already have. You guys rock!

There's something else I think you could help me with. Generally I've played with my romantic partners, but my kink is a bit specific for them. The number of videos that the GIMP guys seem to be able to sell makes me think that there must be somebody out there besides me that actually wants to DO it. At 44 years of age I'm no longer bondage model material, but really, I'm not chopped liver either. So I'm interested in finding someone to play with in the ZFX style - a bit lighter of course - or the Dan Hawke style, in real life.

Seattle has a great scene, but it seems like most of the bondage fans up here are kind of "love bondage" (Harmony?) or "art bondage" (shibari) oriented. What I want is sane, "consensual non-consensuality" bondage and role playing. If anyone knows of any sites I can post to that have personals available for these sorts of kink, let me know? I'm already on bondage.com - see below.

Also -- if YOU are interested in playing in real time, are somewhere near my age, reasonably good looking, reasonably HWP, are able to get to Seattle with some frequency, have references I can check (I'm neither desperate, nor stupid) and are not cheating on anyone, contact me through email or through bondage.com.

Please let me know if this sort of post is not appreciated here and I will cease and desist immediately,

- Silver

Well, there ya go, you lucky 40-something Seattlers!

And on another topic: since the Dan Hawke sale is going on, how about some more input from DH video viewers as to what's hot, what's medium, and what's not so hot.

In the reviews, Ralphus has given...
DH40 a B-
DH37 a C

Gonzo has recommended...
Interludes of Agony III

Ralphus has also noted...
Lashing Liz
Bound on Blonde
Lass and the Lash

And if I've missed anything, now's a good reminding time.

I'll say this: I've seen Lashing Liz and Bound on Blonde (at least I think it was B on B, it's been awhile), and while the models are good looking, the action is too slow for me: not enough manhandling or other action (not for long anyway); too much of model in a certain bondage position for a long long period of time. Basically, if you like a girl being tied up, then villain walking away, and various camera angles that dwell on how she deals with a particular BD position for a good long while, then you've hit paydirt. I prefer more action, so if there are any DH vids with more action, let us know, or let me know!

Few more notes on DH to help out the group.

The Bondage Rave,
Earlier in this forum, I gave Dan a bit of a hard time about this one, and I don't think I did a very good job in my review. Jenni Lee is HOT in this one. She sells the scene well, and towards the end, even breaks down and cries during Dan's whipping. I don't regret the money spent on this one at all particularly because, just when I thought the video about to end, we get one more scene with her tightly bound in a shower, with the water running.

Again, I think this a good choice. So why did I give Dan a hard time? When Jenni breaks down and cries, it is from a whipping that about as undramatic as they get. I'll buy her reactions, because they really look genuine, but at the same time it looks like Dan is barely touching her. And it is very clear how careful he is not to hurt the models. The video has a small cameo by Aysis, who helps Dan to capture Jenni. Frankly, I think Dan's biggest mistake was sending her off. I think the video would have been a masterpeice had Dan stayed behind the camera, and let Aysis top Jenni.

What do the GIMP readers think? Does a good, menacing top make for a better video? Personally I would love tohave seen Aysis whipping and taunting Jenni.

And speaking of Aysis
I also liked Beauty Bound. The intersting aspect of this one is that the 'plot' we have is that Dan has captured a girl and is going to have his way with her. For me, Dan's presence, and his attempt at acting are more of an intrusion than anything else, but let's give credit where credit is due:

Dan Hawk is one of the best bondage riggers in the business. Period. What you are really seeing in this video is a bored looking bondage model, playing along with Dan's plot. But is the bondage gets tighter and tighter, you can see that she really had not appreciated the challenge of maintaning these tough positions. At one point Dan has her kneeling, elbos tied behind her back with a crotchrope. He enters to tie her ankles to her thighs, balancing her on just her knees. The next few minutes, IMHO are greenen. You can really see how much pain she is in, and its a great contrast to how bored she looked in the beginning. I think this one is a keeper too.

Gotta run, work intrudes...

I agree that Dan does an amazing job with the bondage and rope work. But yea he does need a better villain, more interaction. He needs someone getting off on these women and taunting them more, touching them more....less footage of them suffering alone, we want them suffering at the hands of someone, not just at the position they're stuck in all the time.

Hi y'all, I'm new to this forum, I was in search of a movie when I found it. Here's my question: Does anyone of you know where this guy called "Nightcrawler" (to be found on www.extremefiles.com) got some of his movies from?

I'm especially searching for this special movie, the photo series is called "My brother's wife". The girl being abused there looks just awesome. Take care, van Gerven

Nightcrawler used to post a lot on newsgroups. Basically, he takes stills from european porn flicks and makes up his own stories with them. Half the time they're from vanilla flicks, but he captures stills with just the right facial expressions that he can make up convincingly non-consensual storylines.

He never says what the real name of the videos are that he steals the stills from.

Personally after careful review of both scenes, I think that the scene we took as a final was the right choice.

It's nice to know that cast members are posting in your forum, and not contacting their former director in three months ;-)

I was begining to wonder whether Jesse pulled a Mikey myself. Ralphus Yes, Shipping has taken a toll and with this recent black out, I'm sure shipping will be delayed for but a moment.

I just wanted to thank everyone in this forum for supporting the film and giving it a chance! We are awaiting a new shipment of DVD's (as I only order 25 at a time...small indie companies..you know) But as soon as we recieve shipment, I will have the remaining three orders out of the door.

Oh yes, to go back to a comment in the review about the choppy shaky camera work... It was intentional, I wanted to make this seem as realistic as possible. Who knows, If more people purchase DVD's I may be able to get the sequel underway.

AvF: I got in late last night, read your post and scratched my head. Die Casting? It didn't come to me until tonight what the heck you were talking about. Now, I may be getting along in years and my memory isn't what it used to be, but I'll bet there are some readers who were as confused as me. So, I'll let the rest of the forum in on your little puzzle. It's the new Eyewitness vid, the one Robert first mentioned on the board back in June, and it's finally released now. God, how long has it been since we saw anything new from Eyewitness? I had kind of forgotten about them.

I took a look at the new photos from the film. I see some things I like and some things I'm not so sure I'm happy about. Olivia looks hot as usual, and I see they have her hogtied again and they are making creative use out of one of those plastic ties again. They also have her tied to a chair (excellent!) but what's with the stuff gag? I personally hate stuff gags, where the victim could easily just spit it out, but she obediently just holds it in her mouth instead. The wadding looks thick enough that if they tied it on her, it would work well enough, so why not do that?

Looks like more plastic bag torment, and a two-girl hanging this time. I personally like to see one girl suffer at a time, so this would probably not have been my choice if I were directing. And this one is another $60 for less than one hour. Hmmmm...EWP has a pretty good track record, but I'm not sure I'll rush out to buy this one. Maybe not right away, anyway, but curiosity will probably make me fork over the money eventually.

CP QUIROS: Thanks for posting again. I agree with you about your choice of the basement scene. You chose the right version. Both were great, but the direction in the version that made the film was more dramatic for me with the handheld camerawork and the "in your face" close ups.

I'm really eager to hear what the other readers have to say about CUT when they finally get their copies. I had a head start because I had already ordered mine three weeks before I made the announcement on the board. So we should start getting some feedback from the others soon. Once the others find out that the buzz is true, I'll bet even more people will follow suit and order their own copies. We shall see.

Ralphus~I knew my criptic message would be received by some of the regulars. But am surprized it took you that long. Tired or not. The one stop shop of B&D info temporarily stumped. This is indeed a rare occasion ;-)

I wanted to ask some of the regulars (or any of the lurkers for that matter) for a little assistance. I am in contact presently with one of the Insex models about doing a custom. During one of the e-mail exchanges I also mentioned that I would really be interested in having Violet do one also and if she had any contact or site info. She replied that she didn't have any contact info but knew she reads the Insex forum fairly regularly. I wanted to ask if anyone could make a posting for me over there as I am not a memmber. To include my e-mail (above) and that I would be interseted in having her do a custom if she would be interested. Would really appreciate any kind of assistance on this.

Speaking of customs and to revisit the topic for a moment. I know someone had a solo done and I can't really remember what he said he paid but if I recall it was pretty expensive. You just need to look around. There's a porn actress (hot)who does them for $150 per 20 minutes. Another one(and this one is HOT, HOT!) who is charging $350 for 30 minutes. I'm having one done right now for free (I guess they liked my script). They are going to release (with written by "Hollywood Vamp1re" in the credits for those who just becuase they have gotten their feet wet think they know everything, to prove I'm not BSing)it on their site and all I have to do is pay the $39 buck for the DVD when ready.

So look around, you don't have top pay $1000 bucks for a solo or one with marginal content.

Oh, finally got my copy of "Cut" the other day. Have not watched it as of yet though.

Later.

AvF: good luck on your customs. Let us know how they all turn out (and also if they turn out well and are purchasable anywhere). Also, what are the names of the porn star ($150 per 20) and the other one ($350 for 30) that you mentioned.

Scrib~Just one is going to be released to the public. That's the one I mentioned I was having made for nothing (other than to buy my own copy). Filming and editing would take about 4 weeks or so they said, but they have sent me an advance still pic to show where they're at.

As far as who I'm having the others done by, I would rather not divulge that info right now. Why? Well I don't know how far back you go on the forum but anyone who's been here from the start (or just about the start) know's that I've got a lot of ideas. If it turns out well made then I have an inexpensive source to do some of these ideas. I don't want her glutted with requests that she becomes so busy that she'll not have time to do mine (which has been a problem with a few in the past...they'll do 'em but their plates are too full to the point of not accepting any new ones.)The one who's doing the one for $150.00 e-mailed me to let me know it should be on it's way soon and the reason for the delay in shooting was due to her having another shoot scheduled and if she waited for the same day she would have the benifit of a professional make-up artist. Hell, that sounds way cool to me for her to even think about stuff like that.

So, sorry Scrib, at least for right now, I feel the need to keep that to myself.

I will let you know of a couple of other ones though. Pantera is suppose to be one of the hotest up and cummers. At first I kinda thought of her as just OK but she grows on you. And now it's like, Man is she hot! I kinda over did the script I sent her as she declined to want to do it but after e-mailing back and forth she said she'd be willing if the content was toned down a little. She's in the process of moving to Las Vegas right now and said she's not accepting any until October. Check her out...she's hot! Don't know what she charges though.

Another one I know of that does them fairly cheep is Nikki Jackson, a big busted Penthouse Pet. I know she used to do them for $300.00 to $400.00.

Basically you just have to do your homework. Some have their heads to high in the clouds that they want professional fee's for a custom, where others are down to earth enough to want to accomidate.

Just have to look around.

Later.

AvF: no problem, I was just curious. I doubt I'd do a custom, I'd want to be the producer, shoot or direct it, edit it, and own the rights to it if I were the one paying for a video production. Without revealing names, I would be curious as to how well the ones you're having done turn out.

"CUT" Finally got a chance to watch it and would have to say it was a mixed bag for me. As the makers of the film put it " 5 students, 2 cameras, one victim" or something like that. Would have prefered a fly on the wall type of photography with "some" camera POV and victim POV filming mixed in, rather than almost entirely POW's from camera's to camera's to victim's. The red filter for the entire lenght of the video was a hinderence to the enjoyability of watching the film also. IMO should have gradually added it toward the end portion of the film, then increase it's intensity as the film's intensity increases if that's what they were after...but not all the way through.

Angie on the other hand did a really good job I thought. More so in the latter parts then earlier as in one part (that probably would only bother B&D fans) where she was cleave gagged, it was so loose that she could have pushed the gag out with her tongue...which is not her fault. Would have loved to see some skin from Angie too, as after all these are young men...raging hormones and all...come on. Especially since she's a real cutie! In fact, I'm thinking she should give real B&D video's a try ;-)

That's my take...but then that's just me.

Scrib~If it were just a couple of you guys.... But with 46 million lurkers.

Hello to one and all,

Your tip was correct, they had some ZFX clips and at least one of Dans clips up there as well. I've taken steps to have it removed. I also told them I will be notifying Dan, so they likely will remove it as well. This site is about as pathetic as you can get, all crap from Usenet except for a few stolen clips. Its also linked into another site, painholio.net ,which had some other really lame euro crap.(Hey I paid for a membership I may as well use some bandwidth right?=) While I'm not loosing any sleep over it (and Dan shouldnt either), as a matter of principle, I like to stomp the guts out of anyone stupid enough to steal from me. In this case however, if they remove the stuff I'll probably let them go with a warning because they are just not worth going after and I got bigger fish to fry as they say.

Anyway, RR, thank you very much for the tip, I know I can depend on the Gimpers to leave no porno site un-viewed=) Its like having a thousand eyes without needing a tanker truck of visine! BTW, I really like your photo stuff, keep up the good work!

Looks like we found a way to get Rick out of hiding...just tell him someone is ripping off his work. ZIP! There he is!

Rick, how's it going? Whatcha workin' on now? Will we see another release this year? Rick? Where'd he go?

Oh well, he's gone again. At least we know how to get him back, though. Someone just yell "BOOTLEGGERS!" He'll come running :)

AvF: Thanks for the feedback on CUT. I don't think it was necessarily a red filter on the video. The picture had more of a greenish tint to me, which, as a fellow camcorder user, I know to be the result of using existing indoor light, which tends to make things a bit more green. Like I mentioned, the technical aspects of the production were perhaps the weakest points of the film. It was a student film that looked like a student film. The shakiness of the camera didn't bother me, but that aspect that can be disconcerting to some, like when The Blair Witch Project first came out and people had widely conflicting opinions as to its merits. Some people couldn't get over the amateurish look of that film and missed the genuine scares that the film generated mainly through its mood and realistic acting.

Likewise, I thought CUT succeeded extremely well in spite of its technical limitations. The acting was excellent all around, the victim was cute and the villains were strong and scary. I also love it when there's another girl who delights in watching one of her own endure bondage torment, and even laughs and cheers them on while they torture her. Reminded me a bit of the role that Rick would often have Chandra Sweet play in countless ZFX films, where she would play the girlfriend of one of the villains. And the girl in CUT, Cynthia Zimmerman, pulled off that part perfectly.

Don't forget, guys, only three more days to take advantage of Dan Hawke's sale. I've been taking time going through his inventory myself. Direct link above.

Hey guys!

Coupla things!

First, Rick thanx for checking out that site. I was going to get a membership to see what was going on, but you saved me the trouble. Please let me know if they don't remove my clip and save me the $$$ on a lame-o membership! ;)

Second while the GIMP sale ends in just a few days, the lower price is always available to members of my site, so if now isn't the time you can always join my member's site and get the same discount, in addition to lots of great bondage pix and rm's of material not yet released on video.

I need to give my own review of "CUT". I don't want to break anyone's rice bowl, but I was dissapointed. Like AvF I found the sound problems, jittery camera, etc. very distracting. I also didn't like the red filter (it wasn't just light temperature, because the bonus basement scene was more naturally colored - the red was probably post production).

However I could look past the above issues. The real problem for me was that I didn't find the film erotic. For me that makes the disc dissapointing.

Still this item may appeal to you. Ralphus found it awesome and even AvF, who had some criticisms, found things to like in the video. It may just be this isn't my cup of tea. It could be yours, though.

Finally I wanted to tell all of you GIMPers, but especially the lurkers, that this board has iinfluence on folks. Due to my conversation on this board I shoot less crazy angles now (I refuse to give them up altogether, sorry) and I have a new "villian" in front of the camera.

As always it may be awhile before you see all of these changes, but I am trying to rush some of them into post production to put up on my web-site in the near future.

So in short, pipe up about what you like and don't like in what you see. As a producer I can tell you that feedback is hard to come by. Until Ebert and Roper decide to review my flix I have the occasional mail message and chat boards like this to get any insight into what you guys might be thinking!

Hi All,

laughingboy - thanks for the note!

I just ordered my first Dan Hawke video, DH09: Bound & Busted. I wanted to take advantage of the sale and I was a bit too anxious to get my order in and didn't pick very well. I should have asked for your opinions first.

In short, while gorgeous and busty, the model in this video needs to be gagged before she ever gets on screen. I'm thinking she's a few fries short of a happy meal. Whatever the cause, she is frighteningly unconvincing. I could live with that, maybe, but it gets worse: she doesn't seem to have the requisite number of nerve endings in her, admittedly lovely, breasts. She barely flinches when Dan (I'm assuming it was Dan) ran a Whartenburg Wheel across her nipple fer chrissakes! You so much as point a Whartenburg at me and I hyper-ventilate.

In all truthfulness, I had more orgasms poking off to the description of the video on the website than I had while actually watching the video. That just ain't right.

Next time I'll order something with Tyler Scott in it. Yum.

The good news is that I loved Dan's part in this video. His dialog really worked for me. He also gives wonderful grope. Double yum! (pun intended) I hope that any actors he has portraying his bad guys will have similar dialog. The breast bondage and tit torture was lovely. Too bad the model didn't appreciate it as much as I would have. Sniff.

On an unrelated note, does anyone know what film the photo is from that is appearing on my screen today in the advertisment that says "Want to purchase extreme bondage videos/DVDs? Here are a few places to try" I know these photos probably cycle through, but the one I'm seeing is a girl spread-eagled on her back with a duck-tape gag and a guy fingering her clit. It looks delicious! Please help if you can.

Thanks much,

- Silver

Silver, I believe that still is from After Skool Surprise. Its not a bad video from forbidden video (steve). I bought it a while back...the only thing is and I know everyone disagrees, but I dont' like the girl in that...something about her face turns me off. You know who I really like, that blonde from Ballista 2...forgot her name. I like her face. she's cute.

Silver: Bound and Busted was also my first Dan Hawke vid, and I liked it, even though the model, Brandy Dean, was a little non-expressive, like you noted. The one thing that kinda got on my nerves was that she preferred to watch herself on the monitor instead of reacting to Dan's treatment. Almost all throughout the tape, her eyes are abnormally fixed on a corner of the room, so you knew she was watching the scene as it was being filmed. That was one of Dan's earlier tapes, so I would hope he would have noticed it and advised his models to knock that stuff off in future shoots.

I've seen Brandy Dean perform in other vids, including another one with Dan, and she's just not that great an actress, unfortunately. But she's so damn good-looking, with that long red hair and those big, plus-sized tits, that I didn't mind that much :) Dan even squeezes milk out of her nipples while she's tied up in her two appearances for him.

I was at Forbidden's website today and noticed that After School Surprise has been withdrawn from sale and can only be downloaded if you are a member of the site and want to watch it on a tiny screen on your computer. That means that 3 of the 4 best Forbidden titles (along with Trick or Treat 2 and Open House) have been completely withdrawn from the public. I saw their latest DVD today, Dream Date, and trust me, folks, things aren't getting any better. I'll try to get a review out soon.

Nice to hear Rick is still amongst the living. Wish he could have given us, if even just a sentence, of what's on the horizon.

Dan~After dagging my feet I went ahead and took the plunge. I ordered 6 of your vids (6 at 5 price). I no longer like to shop via credit card though (actually I will not) so I sent a money order via snail mail this past Monday. I was thinking that it might not arrive during the sale period and might show up just after. I hope there will be no problems since it is in route?

"Cut" Actually I need to disagree w/Ralphus on preformances. I thought Angie did a good job and I also thought the lead male charecter did a good job. I thought he had a certain camera presence beyond that of a student film. Kinda reminded me of Edward Norton (American History X in case I got the name wrong). The other preferomances were pretty weak I thought, as none stuck out in my mind as anything more than scene dressing. But like I always say...that's just me.

Later.

Everytime there is a review that's less that favorable, they come back and post about how Gauge is coming back, or Gauge is in a soon to be released video. It's like their response is, well you didn't like that...but we have "Gauge".

Actually, come to think about it...I guess I'm just not a big Forbidden fan.

Actually there was some discussion on Customs not too long ago. Mid April I believe it was. Also I'm not surprised that RR didn't mention it, as he seemed to be getting awful defensive....(I think he's a relative ;-) If you read it, you'll know what I mean (But it does look like she has eliminated the "Laundry List" way to submit a custom).

I'll get some links together and put them on the next posting (still keeping some to myself for the reasons posted before). So, don't touch that dial.

So how 'bout you? WHo you having it made by (starring?)? How much? How long? Etc?

As I said, I'm "in the proces" of having a custom tape done. At this time I'm browsing the net, mailing with some kindred spirits, thinking of what exactly should be in my tape, checking a few producers etc.

What I look for, is recreating the old HoM / early CalStar style. Biggest problem is that some of the stuff of some custom-producers I've seen is very, VERY amateuristic (to say the least). Sloppy ropework, VERY bad acting (if any at all) etc. All in all....I feel there's a long, long way to go...

I'm back after another long absence in the wilderness. Good to see some of the old crowd still here. Ralphus, you're still doing a great job runnning the site and buying the lame vids so I don't have to. Bless you sir!

Brutalviolence.com looks intriguing. Anyone out there besides Ralphus try it? It's a Danish or Dutch production. Seems that the Dutch are willing to produce stuff that almost everyone else will not (except the Japanses and Russians, from what I've seen). The women are attractive and alot of the sex looks "real".

Forbiddenvideo.com: still missing the mark, but at least they're seklling Defiance (classic 1970's "roughie") on DVD. I think one day there'll be an industry for people who want to remake all of Forbidden's vids, only much better.

Haven't seen any bogus ZFX lately in my travels around the U.S. Rick's lawyers must be twiddling their thumbs in boredom about now.

RALPHUS' FORBIDDEN VIDEO REVIEW: "DREAM DATE"

I've said it before. It should be my mantra. It all comes down to casting to make a bondage film work. The most important thing is to find an attractive victim. If the girl is cute and we feel attraction to her, then we'll want to see her get tied up and have bad things happen to her. So personally, if the girl doesn't move me, I'll have a hard time enjoying her movie.

Dream Date is being promoted as Forbidden Video's first interracial Dark Side production. It stars newcomer Velvet Rose as Susan, a light-skinned black girl with blonde and pink cornrowed hair and a studded tongue. Body-wise, she's attractive, and she's got a cute face. Many might find her pretty. She just doesn't have the look that I find appealing. Nonetheless, I'm not going to hold that against her. But I am going to hold that against the movie.

The film does have one positive attribute in its casting, however. The male lead is Kyle Stone, probably my favorite FV actor. Here, he is hilarious in his role as the nerdy loser, "Bob", such a total geek that I was laughing out loud from the very beginning. It's a great comic performance, particularly from the start when he calls Susan and sets up a date. This one had great potential to go somewhere.

But when the two actually get together and have their date, he sits there like a stooge, not saying a word, just fantasizing about having consensual sex with her, which we see in several dream sequences. So the first 40 minutes is basically just a comic setup and then nothing but hardcore sex between Bob and Susan, which is fine if you're wanting to see a hardcore vanilla porn flick (or should I say a vanilla and chocolate one?). But that's boring to me. I want to see bondage and forced sex. And it takes a long while to get to that point in the movie.

Finally, at the end of the date, Bob makes his move on Susan, and she knees the nerd in the balls and tries to run out. But he grabs her and pulls her into the bedroom. He gags her with a pillowcase and gropes her on the bed. Eventually, he ties her face down spreadeagled on the bed. He pulls down her panties and spanks her a bit. Susan cries though her gag but doesn't exactly act like she's giving a lot of resistance.

He then takes out a dildo and pretends to insert it inside her ass, but unlike the rest of the film to this point, the action suddenly becomes simulated and we don't see a thing. Later, he has her flipped over on her back and he uses the dildo on her pussy, but the director has to resort to shots of her face and strategically framed angles of her legs so that we see no actual insertion.

Next, Susan is tied on the bed with her legs spread wide and tied to a spreader bar, with her hands bound in front to the bar as well. Bob removes his belt and folds it over, snapping it hard against his own palm, and her eyes widen as he approaches her bare pussy. This is where the film could have really taken off, but instead he just lightly flicks the belt over it, puny little love taps.

There is a bit of bondage sex for a minute or so, and that's pretty good, but halfway though, Bob cuts her ropes and lets her suck his dick, and the action becomes at once consensual and hardcore again. He cums in her open mouth, on her studded tongue, and she smiles and coos as the music turns sweet and romantic. She enjoyed it! How lovely.

I have to admit, as a whole, the film wasn't bad. The acting is good, it's kind of funny, and it's skillfully directed. But what is Forbidden Video trying to do? I'm becoming convinced that they don't "get it" anymore, as any of their previous bondage films with a bit of an edge are now removed from their site, and their new stuff has a playful, lighter tone that works against them. They are trying to play it safe, and this one is a perfect example. A different actress might have improved this one for me, but unless Forbidden changes their direction, it may not make much difference anyway. My grade: C+

Damien,

I too am puursuing (with some like-minded friends) getting a custom done. We have found one guy in NYC who does decent work and have procured 2 vids, one with Randi Ryder, one with Sharon Engert, and have several other prospects in the works. It is a taxing process, and there is no guarantee that the end product will be close to what you envision (when I say "decent", I mean that B- would be the grade I would give.

We also strive for the tight HOM-style ties, but out main focus is breast bondage and tit torture. That is not an easy thing to procure, and getting willing models seems to be the biggest problem.

If you would like to discuss futher details, email me.

Ralphus - thanks for the review of Dream Date. One less video I'll be wondering if I should have bought. Your comments on Bound and Busted were so right on. The model was totally watching herself on the monitor. Grrr! It's helpful to know that she doesn't get much better in other films. Also helpful to know that it was an earlier film for Dan. I'll have to order something more recent. Is there anywhere people sell (legally) used tapes for cheap? My smut budget sucks...

Thanks for responding, paulus. Quelle bummerre that After School Surprise has been pulled from Forbidden Video's website! Was it as good as it looked?

Maybe it's the boy vs. girl difference, but how "cute" the model is doesn't matter nearly as much to me as how well her expressions and noises convey fear, pain and humiliation. How the bad guy looks doesn't matter as much as his (or her) groping technique and dialogue.

I just received Ginger and Abducted in the mail. Tonight I've got a date with myself to watch them. Hey - at least I know I'll get lucky! Hope I don't have to buy myself too many drinks first...

RR - You are my new hero! Why didn't anybody tell me about your site??!! You are (indirectly, of course) responsible for today's first orgasm. Shade worked really well for me. It helps that the actors look like a couple of friends of mine. ;-)

I'm going camping this weekend with a bunch of kinky people. Perhaps I'll get tied to a tree! Hopefully we won't be bottoming to mosquitoes the whole time.

Take care, all!

- Silver

After School Surprise: Ralphus has a mini review in the reviews section. I have A.S.S. (only Forbidden video I have) and I was so bored with the first part of it, I didn't actually watch the whole thing. Now, after reading Ralphus review, I see I'm going to have to watch the rest of it, cause apparently that's where the good stuff is.

Forbidden's direction: Extreme Associates (I think that's what they're called) was raided because of some of the stuff they put out. Forbidden may have pulled their more extreme stuff as a legal move (self preservation) rather than they really like their new direction. Who knows really? Too bad. I'm sure we'd all rather see them improve their product than make worse product.

Hope ZFX doesn't follow the same path.

cute models: For me, they don't really have to be cute, as much as sizzling hot! OK, not sizzling hot, but hot girls are a definite plus. If they're not that hot, then at least I need to be sexually attracted to them, body has to be fairly decent. Acting is a huge plus tho. One particular HOM model I like, decent body, nice legs, not the prettiest but OK looking, was a really good emotive actress for the loops they did back then -- she has a place in my kinky heart! No 'stage' name that I'm aware of.

I don't think any of us care too much what the villain looks like. Convincing villain presence is important. Well-done dialog is important too I think, but this is where me and Silver part ways in that: I think DH dialog needs some work; does it for her, doesn't do it for me. I think I've talked about DH dialog before, way back when.

Dream Date: Not a great review, not a bad review. Doesn't sound like most of us are the market for this video tho. Maybe they have a different target market in mind: oblivion. OK, I'm sorry, I take it back. Let's all stop being mean to Forbidden. They're not going to like us anymore! Actually, if it's got 40 minutes of hardcore consentual sex in it, then maybe the hardcore market is what they're aiming for.

Scribbler: Regarding the change in Forbidden's direction, yes, you're absolutely right that the Extreme Associates case has them wary of the content they put out, and I know that's why they pulled all their rougher stuff. But I don't have to like it.

Anyone who reads this forum on a regular basis knows that I've been overly critical of Forbidden Video's reluctance to stand up for what they think is right, but of course, I'm only the consumer. If Forbidden gets nailed on obscenity violations and faces thousands of dollars in legal fees to have to defend themselves, it won't cost me one red cent. And it's real easy to call a company a wimp for chickening out when there's no financial risk on my side. If I was Steve and I faced potential jail time for trying to make a living putting out fetish videos, I might not be as bold if I knew the authorities might come calling any day.

Steve is a good guy, and he likes the same stuff that everyone else on this board likes. I'm sure he's not sanitizing his work because he wants to. I guess what makes me more angry is that the government is cracking down on our freedoms, and forcing one of the better fetish producers out there to put out less explicit work. Remember, there is still no actual law that says you can't show bondage with penetration, so legally, none of Forbidden's previous work is illegal based on that. I wish someone had the balls to say to prosecutors "Here, assholes! Bondage with sex! Whacha gonna do about it?" And take the case to the Supreme Court and have them rule that while such work may not be to everyone's taste, it should be legal in a free society, so everybody just chill out and leave the filmmakers alone.

Or am I just fantasizing here?

Hi

Unless I missed a post or two, it seems like nobody noticed - or mentioned- the long-awaited release of the whole SOTB series on DVD..

Speaking of RM, feel free to visit the following URL http://jadedvideo.com/yz_result.asp?PRODUCT_ID=68176. Is it really Rick, or is it Rick ?

Speaking of custom tapes, if I were considering contracting for one, I wouldn't let anyone do one for me except EW. They are so far ahead of everyone in the industry that it isn't even close and I'm not even into the hanging and snuff thing. The realism of their bondage scenes far exceeds that of anyone else in the business, their ladies express real terror in their faces and the villians are convincing in their approach as calculating sadists etc. etc. If EW could mass produce their product, I think tey would pretty much put everyone else out of business.

Rod:

The link you had in your post to a video featuring Rick Masters and your question of "Rick or Rick" is one I can clear up.

Rick Masters is not the same as Rick from ZFX. This guy has been in the bondage biz for a long time. He started as an actor for some West Coast companies and gradually began releasing his own videos through a number of channels.

I really like some of his stuff and others appeal less to me, but he is always interesting.

The model in the tape, "Submission at Hellfire" is none other than Nalia Ashe. She has always been one of my favorite models and has appeared in some of my best selling videos -- DH11, DH28 and, most notably DH18: Torrential Pain. Something in this girl brings out the best in me.

Judging by some other videos shot by Rick Masters featuring her, she brings out the best in a lot of bondage shooters! ;)

Some info from Nightline show - Justice Department Launches Long-Anticipated War on Obscenity or specifically Extreme Associates

Scribbler: Thanks for the heads up on that Nightline show about Extreme Associates. Talk about timely, since I had just posted, in part, about them that same night. Koppel kept trying to get that guy from the Justice Department to say what type of content the Attorney General was using to prosecute obscenity and he wouldn't budge, continuously using the vague term "community standards". What it boils down to is that John Ashcroft is one scary guy, since he's made it his priority to go after porn, and he has unlimited government resources to fuel his vendetta. I'm so glad there's a man in power out there who has his priorities straight, to rid the United States of that evil pornography! After all, that's why we elect officials into office, right? To waste our tax dollars on a stupid witch hunt, right? God, we've got to get that damn Bush out of office!

The guy from Extreme Associates made an excellent point. He said he doesn't force anyone to watch his movies, and that the only ones being forced to watch them will be the 12 people in the jury. I guess it depends on who they end up selecting as jurors.

I've seen their most controversial tape, Forced Entry, and it's a piece of shit. It was repetitive, vulgar and tasteless. And if people want to buy it, and watch it in their homes, that's perfectly fine with me. Who the hell is John Ashcroft to decide they can't? And I doubt they will find 12 people in LA who will call it obscene, not in these days of more liberal attitudes and a more relaxed view on porn. But then again, they found the only 12 people in the country that thought O.J. was innocent, so what do I know?

SirP:

Thanx for the clarification. Duh, I knew that. Shouldn't post late when I'm tired... ;)

What confused me is when I looked at the link I saw the box cover said directed by Rick Masters and the cast list said starring Rick Savage.

This caused me some confusion.

As far as I know, Savage directs his own productions. In addition, Natalia is a NY based model. I wonder if the box cover is a typo (as I suspect). I guess it's not impossible that Rick Savage starred in a Rick Masters directed video. Still this product looks more like Rick Savage stuff than Rick Masters/ZFX style to me.

Something of a mystery unless Rick or Rick weighs in...

My guess is it's a typo though.

Dan, thanks for clearing things out. English is not my mother tongue, and I thought that a "typo" error would lead to something like "Dick Savage" or "Rock Sarage", not "Rick Masters". That said, I guess you must be right : I know some works by RS (not a lot), and it looks very much like his own work...I will keep an eye or two on Nalia Ashe

Hello all..I read the Nightline article about Forbidden & I found that this case is motivated by political ambitions..cases like these usually are. This idealist mentality usually comes & goes like a storm..remember 2live crew? Current FBI chief is a religous radical & his type usually have some skeletons waiting to be found. This will pass but some people rights & lives will get fucked before then. I hope people in the buisness, ZFX, Darkstar, etc have some good lawyers..gonna need them.

Also....any one read the subarticle on Nightline about Belladona? Yikes! the Porn biz short on good looking women?
