In the 70s and early 80s, HOM models in mags or movies weren't credited (ergo no names). Then sometime during the 80s, not sure when, model name credits started appearing (most likely not their real names,). Some models even had multiple names. Sharon Montgomery was also Kelly Long and Chris something-or-other. Karen Arthur appeared as Carolyn Clark when she wore a particular long Blonde wig. And there were many others. All the models in the EP loops seem to be from the earlier period (no name credits given). Even tho the EP loops aren't officially HOM, I still think of them as HOM.

The girl in Damian's modified photo/artwork is also an unknown. I have a couple mags with photo series of her, she always seems to end up suspended with her legs spread wide. Georgia van Helsing was in this position in one of the Punished vids. Producers should use this position more!

Electric asian vid? Can't see it; can't use Kazaa on a mac. If it's an asian girl, then it's more than likely a japanese BDSM film/video. I hear many are quite good, bigger budgets than in the states. I'm sure that helps a lot :)

Just for you AvF:


As a side note, the film of her is actually so lame that you can watch it for free at ifilm.com. There is a link to it inside the yahoo story I had in the post. HOWIE

Joanne: I don't think I have the capabilities to post that Asian torture clip on the site, but I have it and anyone who wants it, drop me a line and I'll e-mail it to you, how about that? It's pretty hot stuff, I thought.

Yeah, I agree about the Joe Millionaire chick's stuff being tame. I watched the 4 minute clip on that link and started dozing off after a minute and half :) I kept thinking WWRD...What Would Rick Do?

Still, I watch that show so I knew who she was, and I think it's very cool to get to see her tied up and gagged, even with her clothes on. She's pretty, busty, a Smokin' Babe and she did bondage tapes. If I were Evan, I know who I would choose!

I trust you on the clip being tame...I'll pass. Although she's not unattractive, she's still not one of the one's I was hoping it would be. Allison or Mellisa on the other hand, it'd be a different story.

Hank Hobbs just sent me some brand new vidcaps from one of my favorite classic mainstream scenes, The Pick-Up. I've mentioned this one before as being one of the roughest, and most explicit, mainstream movies I've ever seen. Two sexy women have stolen some money, and the bad guys have to torture them to get it back. First the two girls are bound and gagged (topless) on the floor, and the men give them a vicious belt-whipping until they pass out.

But it gets even better. While the one girl is tortured with hot steamy water in the shower, the other man comes up with this ingenious method of making the dark-haired girl talk. After binding her hands and feet and tape-gagging her, he removes the wires from an electrical cord and tapes them over her nipples. Then he pours water over her bare body. After giving her one last chance to confess, he puts the other end of the cord into the socket and gives her several nasty shocks to her breasts, over and over until smoke is coming off her chest. It's all done with quick cuts, but it's an awesomely effective scene, and way ahead of its time for 1968.

I couldn't imagine this film being made today, let alone marketed to the public. We're talking ZFX-type torture here. Something Weird Video, who owns all rights to the movie, is selling that and all their other VHS tapes for just $10 through March 31. Trust me, this one is a real buried treasure, not to be missed.

I checked out that web site for that Pickup movie. The babe in those stills looks hot, even if she is a bit flat chested. Too bad the web site is DOG slow. I don't have the patience for it right now. Tried searching for PICKUP and THE PICKUP and it found nothing.

I couldn't find anything on "The Pickup" either. Clicked on "P" and "T", thinking ...maybe it would be listed as "The" being part of the actual title, but no luck.

Looks interesting though. It's funny too 'cause I was just thinking that Hank hasn't been by in a while.

I checked in tonight to see what people are talking about. Believe it or not, it looks like Something Weird just redid their website. It looked totally different from two days ago. And yeah, it was VERY slow-loading, when I could get it to load. But The Pick-Up is there; you just have to wade through most of the P's before you get to it, and there's a lot of "Peepshow" entries in there before it. And I agree, they don't have their site set up very well.

The special sale is not even advertised on the site, it was a card I got in the mail. But here's how to skip the junk and just cut to the chase: Send them an e-mail at questions@somethingweird.com and tell them you want to take advantage of their $10 VHS sale (postage is $4 for the first tape, $1 for each additional one). Just list the titles you want and you can even include your credit card number and they can process the order that way. Too bad they make it so hard to order their merchandise, but there's some wild titles in their catalog that are worth checking out. It might be easier to have their catalog sent to you; it's easier to flip through that than it is to go through that slow-moving site. Remember, the sale is through the end of March, so you have plenty of time.

Yes Something Weird probably has the slowest site on the web,but I know they have the "Pick-up" because I bought it there a year ago or so.

My guess is they may eventually release it on DVD as the most recent caps (not the one Ralphus has up tonight,that's old from the VHS tape)I got off of a Something Weird DVD called "The Defilers" as a preview trailer and it was much sharper than the VHS.

If anyone is interested in Something Weird DVD's they can be ordered from Amazon.com and often found in the Borders stores. They are much better than VHS and are loaded with extras.I just got the new release of the 1969 classic "The Ramrodder" with it's classic whipping scene, it looks great and Amazon is cheaper than ordering from "Weird".

Lana Clarkson who was murdered yesterday did some great bondage scenes in the "Barbarian Queen" series so I just e-mailed a couple of caps to Ralphus, maybe he will use them here or use the links above.

Later, Hank

I was watching TV tonight and just happened to flip to "Inside Edition" where I heard the horrible news. I was aware of the Phil Spector murder case, but in this morning's paper, they hadn't listed the name of his victim. My jaw dropped when they announced on the show that it was actress Lana Clarkson, who was the star of two of the best bondage/torture scenes in history, Barbarian Queen and its sequel Barbarian Queen 2. To say that the Barbarian Queen movies are among my favorite scenes of all time is putting it mildly. They had a great influence on me. In the first movie, Lana was topless, tied to a vertical rack and tortured with a hand-shaped object with a needle in the finger, that stabs her in the breast whenever he turns the rack. Then he removes her thong panties and tries to rape her while she's tied to the rack, but she squeezes him off with her legs and throws in a vat of acid! Need I mention that Lana was a gorgeous blonde with a killer body.

Then, amazingly, Lana topped herself in the sequel, which boasts an even more impressive torture scene. Lana is tied to another vertical rack and stretched, moaning in pain. The villain strips her top off, which we get to see with a great overhead shot. After some more torture, this rack gets turned so that she is suspended over a bed of razor-sharp spikes and the slowly lowered so that she will soon be impaled by the spikes. She is left alone but manages to escape her doom (Boo!) but is recaptured (Yes!) and placed back on the rack again and sentenced to a slow death by torture. Afterward, she has to endure a live tarantula placed on her body while tied to another rack.

Not only are both these torture scenes explicit for a major motion picture, the fact that Lana apparently had no qualms about doing them topless added to her appeal for me. Both these scenes put her in the Bondage Hall of Fame in my book. She was an absolutely beautiful woman, and gave excellent performances in both these unforgettable scenes. I'll forever have a warm spot in my heart (and in my loins) for her. I'm very sad that she's gone :'(

What was your FIRST bondage flick? Just curious...what was the first movie you saw that made you realize you like seeing babes used and abused in the movies.

For me, it was a movie I didn't even see, (still haven't cause i can't figure out what movie it was). I was a teenager browsing some video store going out of business, and I saw this movie. I can't remember the stupid name, but the plot description in the back said it was about some chick who gets hassled by these guys and they almost rape her, but she escapes. THen later, they follow her home and rape her at home. She later, gets a gun and seeks revenge on the guys. Anyway, something about that plot description really excited me..but I couldn't find a way to get the tape without my parent's finding out. The store closed and I never found that tape again.

The first actual movie I saw was probably this prison flick with nazis torturing women. one of the women was dunked into boiling water, and then put into freezing water till she froze to death. another woman was forced to be a whore but she tried stabbing a customer or nazi and they tied her upside down on some wooden sticks and left her to die. (oh and they cut her up so she was bleeding to death). i have no clue what movie that was though.

What was my first bondage flick? Well, the first one I can remember was this movie that had this good rape scene where a woman had her legs tied to stakes while a couple of guys grabbed her armes and took turns with her. I can't remember the name, but I think Stray Thoughts has a vidcap up on their site. I am pretty sure that is the same movie, although honestly, I was so young when I saw this movie that I cannot even begin to remember the name. The link to the Stray Thoughts page with the vidcap is


If anyone knows the name of this movie, I would like to know because I would like to see it again now that I am all grown up. The vidcap makes it look like a good seen.

The picture they show is not from the movie described. Serena was a porn/bondage star of the 70's and I actually had the movie they are talking about which is described below that pic

The girl in that pic is not Serena, and that scene is not in that movie.

The pic above the description was part of a series I once found in a hardcore magazine (it was digest sized, oddly). The whole mag was pix of this rape ending up with the model shown buried up to her neck in the sand and forced to blow all of the guys. I wish I still had it. *sigh*

I don't know if it was ever actually a movie, but if it was that would be very cool. I doubt you saw it as a kid though! ;)

After my last post I scanned a little deeper on that page that Unicoi gave the link for and saw a series called Cole Bondage Loops #1 - #6. These were the six tapes release by HOM way back when as Punished #1 through Punished #6. These are all by the infamous Blakemore/Whitman/Cole, the same guy whose European product was the Erotic Perversion series.

These tapes aren't quite as extreme as the EP stuff, but still pretty close. Close enough, in fact, that I think they were banned in the US (of course this was more than 20 years ago). These feature Whitman's usual models, Georgia Van Helsing, Rene Baker, Lana Ryan, etc.

I don't know the quality of these prints, but if they are decent then these are must have tapes. I know many folks here have been asking where to find this guy's stuff, and here it is!

If anyone here has purchased these specific tapes from straythoughts you should let the forum know about their quality.

Well, I don't remember the movie that well, but I am certain that whatever movie it was, I shouldn't have been watching it when I was a kid, but where we lived was kind of out in the country and there was no TV reception and the cable companies hadn't quite made it to our place yet. So, when I was like 10 or 12 my parents got a satellite dish. Not one of those little Wok sized dishes they sell today. This was something like 8 or 10 feet in diameter. And we got all kinds of stations, at least for a couple of years, until they started scrambling the signals. I don't think my parents had any idea the kinds of stuff I found with the remote controlled tuner that panned the dish across the night sky long after they were asleep.

Searching the airwaves for something interesting to watch, I remember another one where they tied a girl down and stuck the barrel of a pistol in her you know what. She was screaming and struggling until the guy with the pistol said that with all her kicking it might accidently go off. Well, she quieted right down after that. Ah, those were the days . . .

Paulus Atreides: Great topic, thanks. From the description of your mystery video that you never got to see, it sounds quite a bit like I Spit on Your Grave with Camille Keaton. She gets hassled by a group of bad men, who attack her and gang rape her twice, including a memorable scene over a large rock outside in the woods. That chick really wailed her lungs out in that one! That film was sort of an equal opportunity exploitation film, because the second half she gets revenge on each of the men, and one scene in particular was hard to watch. If you ever seek it out, just watch the first half and you'll think it's a great film :)

The other tape you mentioned with the woman being dunked in boiling water, then put in freezing water until she freezes to death is a lovely Nazi atrocity called SS Experiments. It was also one of the first scenes I ever collected (along with I Spit On Your Grave), being included on my very first highlights tape from back in 1985 or so. There have been 93 more since then.

My first bondage flick? Well, the day I started the tape, the first two movies I included were Maniac with Joe Spinell and The Devonsville Terror. Maniac features an awesome bed-tie scene with Abigail Clayton. She's gagged with a yellow cleave and makes great reactions while Spinell climbs on top of her and tells her what he's going to do with her. The suspense is really good, and it was shot with lots of close ups of her gagged face and tied wrists. He ends up stabbing her in the chest, sort of the "orgasm shot" of the scene. It's still one of the best death scenes I've ever seen.

The Devonsville Terror is loaded with bondage and torture scenes, including a scene where a woman is tied to a wheel that is set afire and rolled down a hill, another where a woman is tied by her wrists to the back of a car and dragged along a road at high speed, and two great burning at the stake scenes, a favorite fetish of mine.

Dan Hawke: Check your mailbox. I sent you that sand rape series that you remembered. Some great images there.

Ralphus / Paul A.:
Actually the movie where she gets a gun sounds a little like Ms. 45.
I used to put together 'scene tapes' with nothing but rape scene after rape scene. I Spit On Your Grave- (being one of my favorites) really doesn't have a gun-based revenge scene- she hangs the one guy, starts a motor on a boat to 'prop' a guy to death (he was in the water) ran over the other guy with the boat- I think (kinda fuzzy on that one, actually) and the last guy- was the um, "tub incident".

We ought to talk about special effects- really. Drop me a line on email & lets talk okay?

Okay - my two cents are spent.

Bizarro Sex Loops: I've seen five or six of the volumes, including Volume 1. They are all relatively mild, but there are usually a few good segments in each tape. I believe all or most of the bondage loops were from Tao Productions. Lots of good bondage and nudity, very little torture, no rape scenes. The earliest volumes seem to have more older, black and white footage. The hard thing about picking a volume is that there is no description whatsoever as to the content, so you just have to guess based on the titles listed inside. I got lucky and picked mostly good ones that way. If you can get them cheap, they are worth picking up; just don't expect ZFX-type action.

Paulus Atreides: Thanks for the tip on that "I Spit on Your Grave" website. I had partially forgotten Siskel and Ebert's line about seeing the movie: "It makes men want to rape women". Yeah, right! Like we really need to see a movie just for that :) Just for kicks, I checked to see if Roger Ebert's original review for the film was still available online. I couldn't find it, but I have a copy of one of his review books and found it there. He mostly describes his revulsion about hearing people in the audience cheer on the rapists during the movie. One of the final lines in his review reads: "There is no reason to see this movie except to be entertained by the sight of sadism and suffering." There you go, Rog. Gotta agree with you there. Yeah! Where can I buy a ticket?

Hey guys, been a long time.

Ralphus, at one point you bemoaned the fact that noone was reviewing flix like SOB6, out since November. Haven't seen it, man. Life is just too busy.

Build up to action? Definitely. I have posted here many times before about my preference for slow pacing, for the development of a sense of menace. I could almost go so far as to make or enjoy a whole movie about one tie-down. Say, the girl is drugged and can only feebly fight back. She is slowly, methodically stripped on the bed, slowly placed in bondage, slowly gagged, slowly nipple clamped - etc, you get the idea. I want to see her eyes widen as the gag approaches her face. That kind of scene can never be too long for me. I know everybody on this forum has a different freak - that's mine.

Realistic or not? Varies, I like everything. Give me a Forced Entry realistic looking home invasion any day, sure. But give me some outlandish tentacles another day, that's fine, too. I like menace, fetishistic elements, and sexual themes, i.e. light on the torture, heavy on the bound sex.

Dark Offering? One thing I have found over the years is that many of Rick's flix grow on me over time. Dark Offering didn't do too much for me at first. Now it's one of my favorites.

What else, what else? I had so much reading to do to catch up with the forum that I'm forgetting...Oh, I agree with Unicol about bed bondage and overhead shots and seeing her that way instead of up-the-skirt. I've always been a big fan of standing shots with arms and legs spread, too. I like to see her taut muscles and straining -- an arched, stretched female body is always beautiful, looks like she's struggling/cumming (they're the same thing in a way, aren't they?)

A quick OT question for you folks. A while ago we had a mini-debate about DVD vs. VCR. I like the convenient copying features of a VCR and am loathe to buy a mere PLAYER of any kind, including DVD, rather than a RECORDER. To me, a PLAYER is a hobbled, defective product. But, for those of you have gone digital, let me ask you - how easy it to set up a DVD player with a Video Casette Recorder? (Mind you, I still have several VCRs in great working condition which I bought well before Macrovision anticopying technology was invented and I have NEVER had a problem dubbing one videotape to another tape). If I could rent DVDs and easily copy them onto videotapes simply by connecting a DVD Player to a VCR Recorder on top of my TV, I might take the plunge. If there's any hassle factor at all, I don't have time for that. So, is anyone out there dubbing from DVD to VCR?

Here I am, away for months, and now posting twice in one day.

Quick questions for RICK MASTERS. I like gym scenes, cheerleaders, anything placing the girl in the context of exercise, sunlight, fresh and healthy. I especially like the contrast of the happy go lucky health exercising cheerleader wearing her skimpy cheerleading outfit or changing from that to a bikini or something, in the sun ... contrasted to the dark dungeon/lair/isolated bedroom etc. You've done some scenes with elements of these -- Beyond Driven (?) - the scene on the weightlifting bench, yum, and another one with Lisa (?) and another girl walking up the road, also Alison Parish and the truck drivers had some touches of this. FWIW, I'd like to see more of this type of dynamic -- what do you say?

Second question: I love those miniclips on the Net of girls riding Sybian horse vibrators or fucking machines, also like girl-girl strap on scenes. I've rarely seen any of these which included bondage, however. What I like about it, let's face it, human dicks get soft. I like the whole idea of the girl being penetrated by something which keeps going and going and going like the energizer bunny. What I'm picturing is a scene where the girl is tied to a Sybian or a facking machine with the vibrator deep inside her and the windows or clock or whatever show it's night time, say, and then you see her again and there's sunlight outside and she's completely frazzled looking like the things been doing her for 12 hours. There's a short bondage and fucking machine scene in Jenna Haze's best movie, Big Bottom Sadie, that turned my crank big time.

So, Rick, will you be buying a Sybian and or fucking machine for your flix? Thanks - zee-ef-ex

zee-ef-ex, your description of going slowly, and eyes widening as the gag is placed -- yeah, I like that kind of anticipation too.

As for dubbing from a DVD to a VCR, I create my own highlight tapes where I re-edit stuff to suit my own personal style of fantasy. So, being able to copy is important for me too. I am not a techno geek, but I am pretty sure that if you have a pre-macrovision VCR you should be able to copy from a DVD to a VHS with the same ease as from one VCR to another. Pretty sure, but not positive.

However, most "adult" tapes are not Macrovision protected anyway, I think because the cost of installing that type of protection (due to royalties that would be owed to the folks that invented Macrovision) is too high for small producers.

I have a Sampo DVD player, and I have flashed the firmware back to an earlier version so I could disable Macrovision and the Region encoder. Since the Sampo machine will play both PAL and NTSC on any TV set, I can play and copy to VHS any DVD from anywhere in the world (well, maybe not SECAM, but does anyone make DVDs in SECAM?) with the same ease as I can from a VCR. The Sampo players are cheap (I paid about $170 a couple of years ago for mine), but it can be a little complicated getting it set up right to disable Macrovision (I had to study some techno-geek websites for a while -- those guys on the techno-geek sites are smart!), but they are great machines once you get them up and running.

If you do shop for a Sampo player, beware of people selling the SAME player for about twice the price. There are a lot of people who buy the Sampo players and flash the firmware and then advertise it as a Region free Macrodvision disabled player so they can sell it at a huge mark-up (like double the price). It is not that hard to flash the firmware yourself, as long as you have a CD burner on your computer, and it can save you a couple of hundred bucks.

In addition to Macrovision there is this thing called CSS that you have to watch out for on DVDs if you want to make digital copies, either with a computer or with a digital camcorder. I know there is software out there to get rid of CSS (called "deCSS" I think), but I haven't had any experience with that. CSS is more complex than Macrovision and it is somehow ingrained into the DVD itself, whereas Macrovision is somehow put on the output signal by the DVD player if the DVD has a code signal to tell the DVD player to turn on Macrovision protection. That is why you can get some DVD players like the Sampo player to simply turn off Macrovision, but you cannot turn-off CSS.

Well, I am sure that is way more information than you wanted, but it took me a long time to learn all this stuff (many hours reading technical websites when I would rather have been reading Bring out the Gimp), so I thought I would pass the knowledge along.

Luckily, the people I buy tapes from (ZFX and Forbidden) don't seem to use CSS or Macrovision.

And on a personal note to Rick from ZFX and Steve from Forbidden. I really sympathize with the problems you have had with unscrupulous individuals making and selling multiple copies of your tapes. I want you guys to know that I bought my Forbidden tapes and DVDs direct from Forbidden and my ZFX tapes direct from Fantasy Food. The next ZFX tape I will buy will be direct from the new ZFX on-line store. I do not condone copying for unlawful distribution in any way. My reason for copying is to create highlight tapes that are edited to suit my own personal taste in fantasy. For me those highlight tapes are private and I don't let anyone else even watch them. They are for my own personal use. And I always buy directly from the original source because I want the highest quality available.

For Unicoi, zee-ef-ex, or others who may be interested, I found that I could not initially record scenes from DVDs (played on my Panasonic DVD player) that I've rented at Blockbuster (I have not yet tried bondage DVDs) directly onto VHS tapes using my JVS Super VHS recorder. When I attempted to do this, the video was greatly distorted.

I don't know anything about flashing the firmware on the DVD player as mentioned by Unicoi, however, I was delighted to discover that by use of a device that I purchased at Circuit City (a SIMA Video CopyMaster - the name even appeals to me!) for about $50, I was able to overcome this difficulty. Regular dubbing cables work fine for this purpose. The Video Out cable from the playing DVD player needs to go to the Video Input of the CopyMaster and a single cable needs to be connected from the Video Output of the Copymaster to the video In of the VHS recorder. The CopyMaster needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet and turned on and it should be set to color rather than black and white (duh). It's really quite simple even for me. I hope other bondage enthusiasts will find this information useful for their best scene copying pleasure!

I have not rented many videos on DVD yet, but have not had any difficulties with any of the DVDs I have rented so far thanks to this excellent device. I still generally rent videos in VHS, largely because I am in the habit of doing this and because I prefer the smooth fast forward obtained using VHS tapes to the choppy still pictures obtained when fast forwarding on a DVD. However, I should probably make the switch to renting DVDs soon because of the greater clarity available on DVD and the constantly expanding selection available. I am looking forward to purchasing a new computer with a DVD recorder. I am not sure yet whether it will be possible to effectively record from one DVD to another by using a CopyMaster or whether a DVD recorded on my computer will play properly on my DVD player (are they compatible?).

Another reason I am tempted to get a DVD recorder is to transfer my huge collection of favorite bondage scenes from R and X-rated movies from VHS over to DVD before my VHS tapes deteriorate too much. I am not sure whether this is a good time to purchase a computer with a DVD recorder or whether I should wait until these recorders improve in quality and decrease further in price. I am also not sure what video editing software would be best to use for this purpose. If anyone can offer further advice, it would be greatly appreciated by me and I imagine by many others. I hope that further technology will not block our ability to record our favorite scenes for our own personal use. I'm sure that many of us would not rent nearly as many videos if we were not able to save our favorite scenes.

Robert, that Copymaster device sounds cool. For fifty bucks I might have to check it out. I went the route I did because at that time (a couple years ago), the only way to get Baise Moi (which has one hellofa rape scene) was in a Region 2 PAL DVD. Basie Moi was available in Europe at least six months before it became available in the US. But it sounds like Copymaster might be the way to go if you are only going to watch watch DVDs in NTSC format, which is about all I watch. Baise Moi is the only PAL DVD I own.

hey there Robert, There's a huge underground of people who backup DVD's using their DVD-ROM drive and a DVD burner. Check out DVD2One.com there's a forum link there where you can learn stuff. I can barely watch VHS tapes anymore. The noise and low resolution bothers the heck out of me. Decently encoded DVD's are amazing. I am so wishing SOB4 would come out on DVD. please RIck, please hurry that one up.

Great magazine cover that just popped up Ralphus! I just love those old men's magazine covers. Steve, thanks for the great news and website. I greatly prefer the considerably improved video quality with DVD also. I really should make the switch. We seem to be such creatures of habit :-) I wonder if it would also be possible to record just best scenes rather than the entire DVD using this DVD2One software. Unicoi, that movie Baise Moi sure sounds interesting. I've never heard of it. Do you have any idea where I might find it?

Robert, you haven't heard of Baise Moi? Well, if you are into rape scenes, then you are in for a real treat, my friend. Here is my quick and dirty review. The film is sort of a hardcore French version of Thelma and Louise. There is lots of violence and lots and lots of sex, including penetration. But the film is not a "porn" movie. It is more of an "artistic" movie, and the acting is very good.

There is only one rape scene and it comes about twenty minutes into the film. The scene is short but powerful. Two or three guys grab two girls from the park and drive them to an abandoned warehouse. I know, I know, that scene has been done a gajillion times, but the difference here is that the warehouse is clean and well lit and the acting is WAY more believable than on any rape scene in any "adult" movie I have seen.

One of the two girls just sort of lies there and takes it, which didn't turn me on very much, but the other one screams and crys and struggles and kicks as the guy first pulls down her jeans and then she grabs her panties and struggles as he rips those off as well. At some point, I think he punched her in the face, but I edited that part out of my highlight tape. There is some real good screaming/crying as he gives her the old in and out. What really put this scene over the top for me was that they showed a close-up of the first moment of penetration and the quality of her screaming at that moment was superb. You could just feel the agony in her voice as he stuck it in.

I like to be able to feel what the victim is feeling in these types of scenes. And this scene really lets me do that. I only wish the scene had lasted longer. The whole scene was maybe two or three minutes, and the penetration shots (my favorite part) were maybe ten or fifteen seconds. Still, the scene had stripping, a quick breast fondle, full frontal nudity, great screaming and struggling, great acting and a good penetration shot.

Gosh, if only the "adult" movie producers out there could make nice long forced sex scenes with the same level of intensity and gritty reality as the scene in Baise Moi I would be a very happy camper!!!

I got my copy from www.dvdzone2.com, but do not order from them unless you are sure that you can play a Region 2 DVD in PAL format. I noticed that they are selling the DVD in Region 1 NTSC format at Amazon.com, but I have no idea whether the one they are selling at Amazon has been cut or not. The penetration shots in teh rape scene were controversial worldwide. I wouldn't be surprised if they were cut from the domestic version, but I don't know if they were or not, since I have not seen a US copy.

Unicoi- Thank you for the review. One of the women gets sodomized right? Which one?

Name: Unicoi

laughingboy - You are very welcome! Raffaela Anderson (as Manu) gets sodomized during the rape scene. She is the one who didn't scream or struggle. She just sort of went limp and let the rapists do what they wanted to her. When they couldn't get a reaction out of her, they got kind of pissed off and then lost interest in the whole thing and left. There are no penetration shots of Raffaela Anderson during the rape scene, and I don't think they even show much if any nudity of her during that scene.

I don't know the name of the other character that got raped or the actress that played her. She was the screamer that got stripped and graphically (albiet briefly) penetrated, and after the rape scene, her role in the film was done. She was only there to spice up the rape scene I think, and perhaps to show the emotional pain from the ordeal that Raffaela Anderson hid from the rapists. The screamer did not get sodomized as far as I can remember.

Once the rape scene is over, Raffaela Anderson teams up with a prostitute played by Karen Lancaume and the two of them go on a rampage of sex and violence. Karen Lancaume is not part of the rape scene. Both of them have many more steamy nude sex scenes of the consensual variety throughout the rest of the movie.

Unicoi - Thank you very much for the great review and for the information about buying this film. I am into rape scenes especially if the victims are young and pretty and there is bondage involved, although I am even more turned on by torture. It looks to me like the DVD for sale at Amazon.com probably does show the penetration scene. I see that they are selling the unrated version and a reviewer said that the movie is like Thelma and Louise but with penetration. It is amazing that they are selling the DVD for $25 while the VHS tape of the film costs $80. The movie only obtained an average rating of 2 and a half stars from 60 viewers, but the abduction and rape scenes sound great which is the only reason I would want to buy the video anyway. If I'm unable to find the video for rent, I may buy it because it sure sounds interesting. I was wondering if the victims in the film are young and pretty and whether the movie contains bondage.

Robert, I doubt that you will find Baise Moi for rent at your local blockbuster. But I did see the VHS version for rent at an independant video store in Portland that specializes in B-movies and "psychotronics."

The women in the rape scene were young and attractive in my opinion, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. They were both brunette, both had nice fit bodies, both had nice B-cup breasts.

There was no bondage. The screamer was subdued by a couple of blows to the head, and her nose was bloody during the rape scene. The other one simply offered no resistance. I would have much prefered that they had been tied or held down, but I still found the scene to be intense and realistic. Glad you enjoyed the review!

Thanks again for all the information about this exciting movie Unicoi. As you said, it's not at the local Blockbuster (although they sometimes have some pretty wild stuff). It's also not among the movies rented by Video Wasteland (www.videowasteland.com) which rents exploitation movies by mail. Maybe there's a store in Miami which specializes in "psychotronic" videos (I love the review book and magazine by the same name!) which will carry it. I should make some phone calls. If anybody else has seen some great videos recently, please tell us.

I heard from a friend of mine that South of the Border 6 has finally come out in a local video store and that it was fantastic and well worth the wait. I can't wait to see it! I figured this would be the case based on Ralphus's terrific review and the images he has posted.

I recently saw a movie called Russian Slaves 23 which I enjoyed a lot. It had a couple of sexy young girls who were punished for their lesbian behavior. One girl with long brown hair was tied face-down on a table and caned until her bottom was destroyed by cane marks. The lady continued to cane her long after she started crying with tears pouring down her cheeks. A beautiful blonde was then tied to the same table face-up and a large number of clothespins were placed all over her breasts and pussy. Unfortunately, she didn't react very much.

Another recent movie I enjoyed was the Stepbrother by Forbidden Video. I couldn't pass up the great special they offered previous customers on this DVD! It had a couple of young hotties (especially the blonde) who were tied up and raped. The DVD had excellent video quality! The girls appeared to be completely at the mercy of the wicked intruder (the devious stepbrother of the blonde in disguise). Of course, I would have enjoyed the movie even more if the girls were also tied (preferably in a standing position) and tortured as well as raped, but I sure can't complain :-) The movie also contained an excellent "sleepy girl" scene in which the blonde (who had taken sleeping pills before going to bed) was molested and videotaped by her evil stepbrother while she slept. Keep up the great work Steve!

Too funny, Scribbler. I usually change the pic right before I go to bed, so it'll be up several more hours.

Last night I watching one of the ZFX classics, the original Miss Ballista. Is it possible that it was really released way back in 1999? Doesn't seem that long, but what a great movie! Anyway, there's a scene where Penelope Pace has Lisa Kinkaid tied up standing, with her arms raised above her. Lisa is still wearing her Ballista costume, and Penelope removes it from her body, but not the way I would have expected. She unhooked Lisa's right wrist, pulled the costume off her right arm, then tied up her right wrist, unhooked the other arm and took the costume off that way. It seemed like great care was taken to preserve the costume (possibly because two sequels were forthcoming?).

Anyway, I remember that in the third and final Ballista movie, the bad men cut off her costume and ripped it into pieces, leaving her stripped bare. My question for Rick Masters is: Whatever happened to the remainder of her costume? Being a ZFX fan and a lover of movie memorabilia, I'm wondering if the costume was saved. Was there more than one? I'll bet it would fetch a small fortune (among pervs anyway) if it were to be auctioned off on eBay or something. I don't wanna sound like a geek (okay, everybody around here already knows I am), but I would dig a souvenir like the original Ballista costume or the gold boots or the comic book. Just think, Rick, of all the extra bucks you could make just by selling off wads of used duct tape that were actually used on the mouths of ZFX actresses! The mind boggles...

I think your going to really enjoy that movie. I sure did, even if it didn't have bondage. By the way, regarding the movie Baise Moi, I have now discovered that it is possible to rent the DVD from www.dvdovernight.com for only $3.00 for 7 days although it is currently out (They have no monthly fee). The movie can also be rented from www.greencine.com which charges about $21 a month for a membership which allows you to keep out any 3 movies at a time.

Rod: Maximum DeSade is a good one. It was actually the very first ZFX tape I ever saw, about 10 years ago, although ironically my copy was defective and kept rolling, so I had to watch a lot of it on fast forward. But I could tell then that whoever made this tape had some good ideas. I didn't get to see another copy until years later, and I did enjoy it. My favorite scene was a sleeping takedown by Rick of a sweet little honey named Nina Dew. Rick wakes her up out of bed by grabbing her, handcuffing her and...here's what stood out for me...gagging her with a ball in her mouth, followed by a pantyhose over her face and another gag over top of that. I had never seen a girl gagged like that, and he followed this up by tying her in a tight hogtie, wrapping her up in her own bedsheet and carrying her off. Great stuff! I still remember the scene like I saw it yesterday. He follows this up with some nice whipping and clothespin torture to poor Nina in the next scene. Click on the link above from ZFX's official website, and you'll see some stills of Nina from the movie.

I honestly can't recall any other details about the other two segments in the video, but I liked it overall. Tru Detective? Can't remember much about it, other than one of my favorite early ZFX actresses, Sierra Stuart, stars in it, and I remember thinking her hair was too short. Weird, huh? That's one I would really have to watch again on DVD to give it a fair chance.

I finally got to see South of the Border 6 on DVD and agree with Ralphus that it is one of the most exceptional ZFX movies to come along in the past several years (along with such favorites as Forced Entry and Miss Ballista 3).

It's also great to see two new hot actresses in one new release. Ashley Blake had a gorgeous face and seeing her get abused seemed at times almost like watching someone like Farrah Fawcette get tortured. That Elaine Payton had a body that won't quit and acted very well (even if she did have difficulty pronouncing the word embassy in the outtake :-) She had the kind of slender, young-girl body that I love to see! I think she would have been even hotter without the glasses, but at least they came off at the end. Of course, Lisa was also terrific as always.

Its obvious that Rick and the rest of the ZFX staff went to a great deal of effort to do things to perfection and give us all the things that ZFX is famous for. I was so excited by the video that I stayed up half the night watching it. Being able to watch a ZFX movie on a DVD was a real treat; the video quality was so amazing that I felt almost likeI was there and could reach out and defile the glistening bodies of the helpless victims myself. (Probably about the only way you could have made the movie even more realistic would be with 3D.) Even my VHS copy of the best scenes came out sharp and clear.

Of course, the video was quite heavy on sizzling scenes of torture and would mainly appeal to those who enjoy seeing this, although there were also some excellent scenes of rape and sexual molestation. In this regard, I particularly enjoyed the scene where Elaine Peyton was tied down and raped while her pussy was still raw from just having been tortured with a burning cigarette. I loved all the finishing touches such as watching the sparks fly when the women were shocked and the smoking scenes (no pun intended) where Elaine was shocked until her pussy smoked and then burned in numerous places with a smoking cigarette. Great suspension scenes also with the girls hung up like a piece of meat and beaten until they were raw. I never tire of watching beauties get tortured until they pass out! Something about a limp female body that gets me very hard. It was also a pleasure to see preview scenes from previous movies with the clarity of DVD. I hope others enjoy the movie as much as Ralphus and I did.

From the few stills I've seen of it and the reviews, I have a feeling it'll be one of my favorites. My favorite type of scenes are when a woman is hanging by her wrists and whipped savagely. I also like it when there's some breast bondage and torture. A scene I don't like is when the woman's hands are tied behind her back and she's bent over and whipped....

Ralphus - thanks for your comments on the ZFX re-releases. Incidentally, the linked section from the ZFX site had escaped me..

dvd alert : London /HOM has just released a new batch of dvd, such as Bondage Classics vol. 10 to 12 (isn't Renee Baker featured in volume 11?), and a few HOM films from the late 80's, including Bondage Impossible (?), Bondage Cheerleaders (??) and Bondage Boot Camp, the latter featuring MEN as the dom, which is quite rare. You can take a look at the complete list of new releases at fivestardvd.com or cduniverse.com. The good thing is that, although Sunshine does not distribute the "new" vintage London/HOM videos anymore, the prices are still nice : these new titles cost 12 to 15 dollars...Any comments on these movies?

I have already received about half of the newer London releases that I want, with another shipment on order. I was gonna hold off posting until I got the second order, but CDUniverse is lagging. One of the newer releases that I did get was Bondage Classics 10. I ordered it partially because I learned that one of my favorite old school HOM models, Lonnie Andrews is in one of the loops. Keep in mind that while I have seen lots and lots of Chads from that era, I have only seen a few of the old HOM films, and own none.

I didn't think I would really like any of the bondage classics loops, partially because they don't have live sounds. I'm big on live sounds. Well, this gem has quickly leapt to one of my all time favorites. For the first time, I feel like I am really getting a taste of what inspired Rick and Dan to do the work they do. This is really good stuff. I muted the sound and turned on a song called 'Angel' by Massive Attack (just try it), and was amazed. The bondage is tight, the lighting just right and the models...

I was floored when I saw Marti Kaye in Red Hot Captive. The Chads of this model have been making their way around the net for years, and yet I had no idea that they were actually stills from a movie. The model is seriously hot and she really sells the scene to the viewer. when she is begging and pleading to the camera, I really think it better that there is no sound.

As for most of the other new releases from London, I have to say that they are more examples of how far HOM fell in quality. I might recommend Legends of the Torturer, which is kind of a 'best of' from other vids. Some of the scenes are pretty cool though.

Frankly, I think some of the newer releases from Bruce Seven to be much better. Bruce doesn't get much respect in this forum, and I think it's because it's scene bondage. There is no rape and usually, the only male is Bruce himself. For all that, there are some seriously gorgeous girls in these vids. Most of it is well filmed and for once we get to see whippings that are actually real and intense.

I wish CDUniverse would get it's act together. One of the dvds I have on order is SOB6 and I amlooking forward to getting it.


Wednesday, February 19th 2003 - 11:37:41 AM

Name: Rod

Gonzo, obviously we think alike, the live sounds, Bruce Seven etc... And I've seen more Chads than HOM videos too.

I finally ordered - in addition to SOB6 - Bondage Classics 12 because it included outdoor bondage (too bad, you sold vol. 10 well !), and Bondage Boot Camp, because I have the feeling that it was one of HOM's last attempt (1988/89 ?) at portraying a male villain. I was about to order Bondage Impossible too, because it features Trinity 'Bright Lights Big Titties' Loren, but I finally decided to wait (wisely?). The only loop collection in which the absence of live sound is no problem, IMHO, must be the Erotic Perversions series, probably because the action is so hard that the disco/lounge music provides a "necessary" balance. Such is not the case with "lighter" stuff like most of the HOM loops,that's why I'll try 'Angel' ;-)

As for Bruce, I'm a big fan of his Buttslammers series (and Bionca's Everybody Wants Some), and his bondage output deserves some respect, because of all the stunning girls featured. The "scene" thing doesn't bother me that much, as long as Careena 'Casee' Collins is here. Downside : the dvd quality for some of the titles -Ecstasy of Payne comes to mind - is less than stellar, to say the least.

Thanks for the heads-up on the new HOM DVDs, especially BCs 10, 11 and 12. All these have great classic loops. Favorites are BC10's Red Hot Captive as Gonzo already mentioned, and the Sign with Sharon Montgomery. BC11's Outdoor Bondage Double-cross, Breast Bondage with Renee Baker, and Code of Honor. BC12's Barnyard Bondage with the huge tree branch tied tight to Dixie's crotch and Escape to the Wilderness. As far as the best collection I'd give a slight nod to BC11, but all are worth having IMHO. And, no, I don't work there, I'm just a huge fan.

Gonzo: Lonnie in Nina Never Knew loop is an OK loop, cause Lonnie's hot, but it's a solo model flick. Her best loop (and only other Lonnie loop far as I know) is Code of Honor on BC11 where she gets slapped around and molested by the hooded Whitman. It includes an implied penetration by dildo scene.

Bruce Seven: I like is stuff, always have. And his work has gone through a number of distinct phases. Recently, a number of DVDs have been released from what I think of as his 'blue phase'. The bad quality that you speak of, Rod, is NOT present. They are all very similar in nature though. If you like one, you may as well get most of the others becasue they will be just as good. I call it the 'blue phase' because it seems as though Bruce finally got access to a professional grade camera and a decent sized playspace. But like a kid with a new toy, he seems overly impressed with the blue filter and about a third of the footage in all of these releases use it. I can live with it, but it really would have been better to not use it at all. Anyway, I thought I would briefly review the recent releases of his.

Crazy Times
This one is a keeper. If you like to see Casee getting worked, then this one is a must. Alex Jordan takes a beating as well, and Lauren Haze (who has a GREAT ass) is around for eye candy. This is also a good one for those that want to see a male as the top. Luc Wilder whips and clamps a cute black girl named Sinnamon until she is crying and he teams of with some masked guy to do a number on Casee. This is honestly some of Casee's best work IMHO.

Payneful Revenge
Another must have for Casee fans. This time Alexis Payne is getting revenge for her not showing up for a session. I particularly like how she has Casee, hands tied behind her back crawling around, miniskirt hiked up to her waist. She later uses and electric wand on Casee that has her practically screaming.

Whips and Chains
A good one as all the scenes are pretty intense. Of particular interest is Shelby getting whipped hard enough to cry and Casee is told to lick her tears. And don't worry, Casee gets whipped hard while upside down.

Painful Madness/Wicked Moments
Good ol Bruce. Get a bunch of hotties. Have em dance and beat the crap out of each other. Wait a minute. We got so many good scenes out of this session, let's just make 2 movies instead of one! Let's have each movie contain highlighted scenes from the other. Me, I went and got both, because if you like Bruce Seven, and you like like to see some seriously hard whipping and tight bondage, then both of these are great.


Sensuous torture
Poor Bruce has jumped the shark. Boring has beens lightly slapping each other. It's a good drink coaster.

Yvonnes Odyssy
Bad camera work, lots of outakes that should have been edited. Seymore Butts works Casee over but the scene didnt grab me.

Caught and punished
Buy this DVD if you want a good laugh. You ready? Boring has beens, but Bruce makes an appearance. He's about 172 years old now. He's had a stroke and is in a wheelchair. Half his face is all droopy and his speech is slurred. You can't understand a word he says. The models still act as if he is a strapping 19 year old young buck, but they have to help him hold the slapper. Guy is older than Moses but he still wants to dish it out. --Gonzo

dear Gonzo - Poor me, I ordered Caught And Punished a few weeks ago : I liked Johnny Black in one of the Buttslammers videos, and I'd been told that C&P was one of her first - if not her first - film. Your warning comes too late :-( By the way, I know Yvonne's Odyssey and agree. I'll follow your recommendation : I believe that the combination of Casee + Alex Jordan can not make a bad video.

Back to HOM, and speaking of 'Bondage Classics' and 'Punished' : do the Whitman loops/shorts included in the BC collection belong to the Punished series (or vice-versa), or are they totally different loops?

Thanks again

The Bondage Classic and Punished loops are different loops. The BC loops are the older loops, produced by HOM during Barbara Behr's Reign. Then Behr sold HOM, and started California Star where Whitman did full-length videos and the Punished looplike videos.

Boy has it been a long time since I've been here...

However I just got my copy of SOB6 in the mail and finished watching it. What can I say, it was definitely one of the better ZFX vids to come out in a while. I especially loved the strip search scene with Elaine Payton. The skirt, PANTYHOSE, glasses, and all just made it seem like something that could actually happen. Rather than just being some weird anonymous fantasy setting where the chick is stripped nude before anything is done to her. And then with the hose left halfway down her thigh while a close up inspection is done...mmmmmmm. The only I wish could have been done was to show him actually sticking his fingers in and digging around "looking" for whatever. To see the fingers actually pressing and distending the belly while searching...aaaah, maybe in the future? ;)

The rest of the film was quite good also, though I wish they hadn't been so quick to pull down the flimsy bra the first girl was wearing. Seeing her breasts manhandled through that would have added that much more "reality" to the show rather than overt "male fantasy."

Anyone who hasn't seen this yet should be ashamed of themselves.

/rant on/ And one thing I noticed in the forum a bit further down. Mention of copying DVD's rather than purchasing them hurts when I think of people like Rick trying to eke out a living by making stuff that is so on the fringe that he's never going to get rich doing this stuff. Granted a multi-billion dollar corporation like AOL Time Warner can (and does) soak up the losses due to revenue from video stores purchasing thousands of copies of their tapes. I imagine Rick gets hit pretty hard by this stuff.

Hell, think of it in purely selfish terms. The less people pirate Rick's (and other director/producers that you like) works the more money he'll have to improve what he's able to do.

I mean one of the bondage/rape fantasies I'd LOVE to see Rick do as only he can is something set in Medieval Europe with period costuming. Or hell, the old southern plantations with an uprising of slaves teaching their masters wives a thing or two... IE - things that can cost a considerable sum of money, especially when you want to see the stuff violently ripped/cut/shredded off them while. /rant off/

Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox... I'm pretty sure you're all sick of it by now... :) But I still think Rick deserves every penny he can get for doing the stuff that he does that pretty much NOONE else will do. Granted, others like Forbidden Video do try, but they've still got a ways to get to where Rick is at, though I do like the full penetration rape scenes they have in their video's now and then. PS - I know not everyone uses a Macrovision defeater to pirate movies. Some just want to make compilations of the good scenes from movies they already own.

Ralphus - Great job on the board here. Wish there were still as much discussion on ZFX as in the past, but what can you do when video's are so infrequent now. Though it definitely has gotten better recently.

Rick (if your still lurking somewhere) - MORE PANTYHOSE, hehe... Just a personal thing here. I just love the whole fantasy of a "powerful" business woman/lawyer/etc. taken down. Especially the slow stripping away of all their physical and psychological protections. I love imagining how they must feel even more vulnerable when their pantyhose is only halfway down, or just ripped rather than being completely off. How it keeps alive that little bit of hope that if they aren't completely nude they can still somehow make it through OK. And then when they finally do lose everything at the end, they're broken. Anyway, most important of all keep up the good work. And don't let anyone disuade you from using "costuming" to good effect even if it's something mundane like a "business suit" or aerobics outfit (mmmmmm, Video Pirates, Forced Entry and that wonderful rape scene in Evil Man - Beyond Driven 2) or whatever else fits a scene.

Amazing to think that I've been a fan of ZFX since 91 when I saw True Detective. Rented them until they disappeared in the state of Washington and then started purchasing them back in '95 or so. I think I own about 30 or 40 ZFX video's right now and am in the process of converting them to DVD's.

Which brings me to another question Rick (I hope you are around). When you converting the older stock to DVD, are you mastering them using the original footage? If so, I'll probably end up purchasing most of the stock over again as VHS quality just plain...well...sucks. ;)

For the person complaining that DVD's don't have smooth fast forward. They do, it's all in the DVD player. Generally the cheaper the player the choppier the fast forward. My 3 yr old Toshiba player can do smooth DVD fast forward up to about 4x. 8x-32x is choppy however. Still 4x fast forward is still faster than my VHS player. My father's el-cheapo Panasonic DVD player however is a tiny bit choppy even at 2x. My mom's Sony DVD player in Japan was smooth all the way up to 16x. But they spent about 1,000,000 yen for it, approximately 800 dollars.

About Baise Moi, great film. I haven't watched the American version of it yet, but I believe they removed the penetration from the Rape Scene, though I'm not positive on this. I own the french version that I bought from Amazon.com.

So what's Rick been up to? anyone know?

Great post Silent Buddha. I hope you won't stay so silent in the future. Thanks for the information about DVD players. I'm happy to know that DVD players are available with a smooth fast forward up to 16x normal speed (mine is smooth up to 4x). I hope these come down in price so I can afford one in the future. I guess a person really has no good excuse to rent or buy VHS tapes when similarly priced DVDs of the same movie are available. I have recently joined two DVD rental clubs (www.netflix.com and greencine.com) and am anxiously awaiting the arrival by mail of many very interesting-sounding movies in my queue including Baise Moi. If any seem great to me, I'll try to mention them in case someone else might enjoy them. (There should be a Yahoo or Microsoft club where people can discuss scenes from excellent sadistic movies they have seen. Maybe there already is such a club that I don't know about.) Also, if a lot of people rent movies of a certain type (I think you know the type I am referring to :-), such companies will undoubtedly try to carry more offbeat movies of this type.

Like yourself, I am also strongly opposed to the idea of selling pirated copies of videos like those produced by ZFX although I don't see the harm in recording favorite scenes for your own personal use. Most people certainly can't afford to buy every video they like a few good scenes in. However, I would certainly encourage people to buy (preferably directly from Rick's website) any videos that they really loved even if they already have an excellent copy of their favorite scenes. From a selfish standpoint, you could think of this as voting for your favorite videos in hopes that more like it will be produced in the future. Also, ZFX deserves the money for its excellent productions which drive us all nuts and needs the profits to hire more gorgeous hotties to use and abuse!

What's Rick been up to? He e-mailed me a couple of weeks ago and said things were insanely busy and he hadn't had a chance to get a post together for the board. Hopefully that's good news and he's been busy tying up new cuties for our enjoyment. Still...it's been nearly a couple of months since the Rickmeister has graced this board with his presence, and there have been a few comments and questions from posters that are just dyin' to be answered. Most importantly, whatever happened to the Ballista costume??? :) (Thought I'd refresh your memory in case that one slid by.) Hopefully it won't be much longer til we hear from Rick (Uh...that's your cue, Big Guy).

Silent Buddha: Great post, and don't stay away so long next time. No surprise that I echo your praise for SOB-6, and it's gotten nothing but positive words on this board from everyone who's seen it.

It's interesting that you pointed out the clothing. Someone commented that they like it when the clothes are left partially on as opposed to actually nude. I like that, too. I suppose if you poll 100 guys, you'll get nearly a hundred different preferences, and you can't please everyone.

Still, I like seeing the girl's clothing...something she probably spent a long time shopping for and picking out just the right outfit...torn or cut to bits by her attacker, without any regard to saving it. It's just in the way of what he really wants, i.e., her tits or her pussy or any other body part he desires, so he simply tears it away and helps himself as though he has every right. And with her all tied up and helpless, she can't do anything to stop him anyway. Leaving them hanging off her body in tatters helps with the demoralizing image.

I especially like the idea of taking a girl's panties, the thin sheath of clothing that covers her most private area, and ripping them off and sticking them in her mouth as a gag! It's a classic, sure, but the reason it excites me every time is because it's especially demeaning to the victim. To use her smelly old panties and force her to taste them while they're taped over her mouth as a gag...it's just mean! And that's why I like it :)

Hehe...glad people took the time to read that monster of a post I made. I just got done looking at it and was shocked to see how long it turned out to be. :P

By the way, another movie with an absolutely (for me) to die for scene is a Spanish flick called Tuno Negro. There isn't anything explicit and the scene is mostly consensual but it features a very hot Spanish lady tied to a bed while she gets her brains fucked out. Using just a bit of imagination I can picture this being non-con. Other than that I don't speak Spanish so I have no "real" idea what is going on in the film.

Ralphus - I have to agree with the whole panties in mouth thing. Especially when you see the woman has just come home from a hard days work at the office.../evil smirk/... I do hope that busy from Rick means busy on another movie rather than busy busting another pirating racket. /crossing fingers/ I definitely can't wait for his next masterpiece.

And Rick - another request if you read this. I'd love to see another movie featuring a scene while a woman is working out and then is bound to exercise equipment and just abused an raped. As I said before that is still one of my all time favorite ZFX scenes (from Evil Man). And when the showed a closeup of her squirming her ass while cum dripped down... Mmmmm...

Hi all,

The Stones picture indirectly reminded me of something I just read about recently. Apparently five guys were just arrested in England for conspiring to kidnap one of the Spice Girls. And although I could give a rat's ass about any one of the Spice Girls, it could make for a good ZFX plot. Five maniacs of like mind kidnap to use and abuse the object of their obsession...A hot ZFX cutie portraying a prissy prima donna actress...or a snooty female singer...or a hot tennis star.... or....

AvF: I like that idea. A while back on this board, we discussed a ZFX Does Britney plot. It sounds better every time I think about it. It would certainly be a fantasy for a lot of people. I think Rick should run with this one!

That would be real nice. a britney plot would kick ass. That's a really good picture by the way, looks just like her...did they digitally add her head in or what?

Nope, it's an actual photograph I took of Britney while I had her tied up in my home. Can't believe that whole story escaped the tabloids...

Ralphus~How many times have I told you...Tight! See what happens when you have sloppy ties...they escape.

The pic adds fuel to the fantasy. Rick should find a Britney look-a-like and start filming. Or better yet, a least from my perspective, a Jennifer Love Hewitt look-a-like. And I know there is a nude model who looks a great deal like JLH. As a matter of fact I brought it up a long time ago when I accidentely stumbled upon some HOT pics of the look-a-like. Unfortunately I didn't save any of the pics and have not been able to find a site that has the pics I speak of since.

Anyone else familiar with what I'm talking about? Would love to get there again to save a few pics this time.
