Forbidden Video's newest release is a highly touted sex film with a sci-fi plot called Robobabe 2025, starring adult film star Gauge, in her sixth appearance with the company. Her first two films with Forbidden produced two of their best titles, After School Surprise and Black Market Bondage. Unfortunately, her next three tries have been less than stellar. This latest is a bit of an improvement, although still not up the high level of those films.

Robobabe has an intriguing plot. Set in the future, men can now order lifelike robots for any purpose they want. And naturally, there are several female models that will satisfy your every sexual need. Jake (played by Dick Tracy) decides to order one, and guess what? She looks exactly like Gauge! Now yer talkin!

Gauge is delivered to his home in a huge cardboard box, wrapped in plastic and covered with packing peanuts. He plugs her in and reads the instructions. She has several modes of operation, including "Young and Innocent", "Submissive Sex Slave" and "Unwilling Victim". She is voice activated, so she will perform whatever command he chooses.

He selects "Show" and Gauge quickly changes clothes, then performs a sexy striptease for him, removing her sexy red outfit and masturbating herself with a dildo. Wow, just like the real Gauge, and so lifelike!

Next, he commands Gauge to go into the "Young and Innocent" mode and in a blur, she has changed into a cute pink top and has her hair in pigtails (fetishist alert!), like a young teen. He persuades her to suck his dick and then he fucks her from behind, then from the front.

At this point, we're about a half-hour into the tape and it's pretty standard sex film action so far, about like Gauge's hardcore stuff but hardly "dark side" yet. Jake next commands her into her "Submissive" mode. In a flash, she has switched to a sexy bustier and willingly sucks his dick for a while, then she lays on a table and he smacks her pussy a few times with a whip. Then he gives her some oral sex while she hold the whip in her mouth. That's about as dark as it gets in this scene. He penetrates her with the phallic end of his whip while she sucks his dick. He lightly smacks her ass. Very consensual, very dull.

Suddenly, at 51 minutes into the tape, we finally get what we've been wanting to see. Jake switches Gauge to the "Unwilling Victim" mode and it's like we're watching a completely new movie. Gauge swiftly changes clothes and waits for Jake to accost her. She protests when he grabs her, and he quickly throws her to the ground and grabs some duct tape. There's a fast dissolve and she is already gagged with the tape (couldn't we have seen that part?). He opens up her top, removes her panties and while holding her down, fondles her body while she kicks and protests. He picks her up and carries her off.

When we see Gauge next, she is tied over a flight of stairs, with her hands tied together over her head and he legs spread wide and tied to the armrails. Her mouth is still duct-taped. He sucks her nipples and helps himself to her pussy, licking at it while she protests through her gag. Then he rapes her pussy, but the action suddenly becomes simulated, totally unlike the rest of the movie, which had been hardcore up until then. That's Forbidden wimping out and playing it safe, which is too bad. It's still a stimulating scene, and easily the best of the tape, even though the entire "Unwilling Victim" sequence lasts only 7 minutes.

At this point, Jake unties Gauge and the remainder of the film is the "surprising twist ending" that I had already figured out would happen early on in the movie. For once I won't give it away, but it's kind of amusing seeing Gauge go from one extreme to the other.

After the end of the movie, both actors make an appearance in front of the camera where they let everyone watching know that indeed, Gauge didn't have any actual sex while she was tied up. Translation: "Yes, it was simulated; please don't arrest us." Give me a fucking break.

I have to admit I liked this film, even though most of it was straight, vanilla sex. The concept was good, and I like the idea of being able to purchase a robobabe that looks like Gauge. If I had made the movie, I would have made it much more dark and explicit, but at least we get a bondage rape scene with Gauge, even though it was simulated and relatively brief, especially compared with the rest of the movie. As far as she is concerned, I'll take whatever I can get. My grade: B-

Ralphus: Here's all you ever wanted to know about the Bushwhacker, and then some (if I can get all of this to post this time). I just did a new search and see that the Bushwhacker is still in the IMDB. They don't give the plot, however. They just mention that it was 86 minutes long, produced in 1968, in the horror/thriller genre, and was billed as an adult color spectacular. They also mention that Byron Mabe was in the cast. If you do a search on Byron Mabe, you learn that he apparently acted in the Bushwhacker using the name Ronnie Runningboard and also directed the movie using the name B. Ron Elliot. Byron Mabe was also the blonde-haired male actor in the movie, the Defilers.

I recently rented the DVD of the Defilers and listened to the interview of the director, David Friedman by Mike Vraney of Something Weird Video. During the interview, Mike asked David if he knew anything about the "over the top" movie from the late 60s called the Bushwhacker. David was very familiar with it and said that it was commissioned by some young lady and directed by Byron Mabe. They apparently produced some other wild movie in the desert which was never even released. Mr. Friedman commented that Byron Mabe was excellent at acting and directing movies but knew nothing about promoting or distributing them. Mike lamented that there appeared to be no print of the Bushwhacker still in existence. Several years ago, I talked to Mike of Something Weird Video on the phone and asked him if he knew anything about this movie. He said that "believe it or not, various customers had requested this movie" and he had been looking for it for years but had never found it. I was sorry to see that the actor and director, Mr. Mabe died in Orlando in 2002. I wonder if Rick ever met him.

I watched two showings of the movie in a row in a downtown theatre in Atlanta in about 1974. Wow, did it make me excited! I always planned to see it again but never had a chance to. From what I recall about the plot, it was about a beautiful, slender young girl with long blonde hair wearing a mini-skirt who went on a camping trip with a couple of friends - a guy and a fat girl. During the movie, the young beauty was being stalked by the villain who hides in the bushes. While the blonde was walking behind her friends on a path through the woods, the stalker was following close behind. At one point, the young girl pauses to bend over and pick something up which causes her mini-skirt to hike up even further. Meanwhile, the camera revealingly pans up her shapely long legs. You think the stalker is going to pounce then, but he waits until a few minutes later when they are walking through a field. He suddenly charges out of the forest, grabs the young beauty by her long blonde hair, punches her and slaps her hard in the face until she passes out. He then tosses her limp body over his shoulder and gropes her legs as he carries her away and disappears from sight.

When he gets to an isolated open area, he tosses her still unconscious body roughly onto the ground and rolls her onto her back. He then drives four stakes into the ground and stretches her body out as he ties her to them. As he cuts and tears off her skimpy clothes with a knife, the sexy victim comes to and starts screaming and acting terrified. The maniac proceeds to make numerous small cuts all over her body with his knife. He also whips her with a switch and tortures her with cold water while he roughly handles her luscious body, but does not rape her. He finally grabs one of her breasts and slices it off with a knife and walks away from her presumably lifeless body while munching on her severed breast.

The scene in which her breast was cut off was done so convincingly that I wondered for years whether this might have actually been a snuff movie. Years later, a friend of mine told me that he ran across a magazine with pictures from the Bushwhacker in which they clearly explain that although the scene looked very real, it was actually a masterfully created illusion created by special effects. When I mentioned the Bushwhacker previously on this board, I recall that someone (Sardu?) in the forum mentioned that they had also enjoyed watching this movie and later ran across what was probably the same magazine article assuring that the scene was not for real. The movie was quite a sexy shocker and probably turned me on more than about any other movie I'd seen to that point. However, that was before I had the pleasure of seeing such great classics as those of California Star, HOM, and ZFX.

Interestingly, in about 1994, I located a company called Great Pictures which claimed that they had the Bushwhacker and would sell it to me for something like $75. I thought that was pretty steep and hoped to buy or rent it somewhere else later but have not run across it since. I'm not sure this company is still in existence. I haven't been able to locate it on the Internet, although I haven't really looked very hard. I probably should have bought the movie when I had the chance despite the price, if indeed Great Pictures really had it. So much for my recollections regarding the Bushwhacker. Sorry if I got carried away.

Robert: Great post about The Bushwhacker, thanks. I do remember you posting about that a while back, and yes, now I remember why I wanted to see it :)

I did a Google check on "Great White Pictures" and about all I found was stuff about the band and the shark. 1974 was a long time ago for a company to still be in business. And as far as finding a movie from 1968, I do remember it was only just a few years ago that Something Weird finally found a print of the 1968 cult favorite The Pick Up. I had seen the trailer for it on another one of their tapes several years earlier and tried to order it then, but they didn't have it at the time. They said they had been searching for the movie for 10 years and finally located a print of it in Denmark, of all places. So it's possible that maybe a print of The Bushwhacker still exists, somewhere. You can bet if anyone finds it, it will be Something Weird. They have the most amazing collection of rare schlock, and they've unearthed some real gems that nobody else seems to have.

I wonder if years from now, people will be trying to locate ZFX films and today's harder stuff the same way they look for the Whitman loops and those 1970s roughies? Will people say "Yeah, I remember seeing this great video Trick or Treat 2 once upon a time, before the company that made it got cold feet and pulled it from circulation. Now you just can't find it anymore..."

Yes, it's a great picture! It's not from a movie, it's part if a bondage photoset. I also think this particular verison is manipulated in Photoshop or something. In the original picture, the girls have denim shorts on. But they do look great without them, right? ;-)

Excellent picture. The setup is ideal. They are open for business, so to speak, to anyone who might happen along. The "what ifs" are plentiful here. What if some Boy Scouts show up. What merit badge could they earn? What if their ex-boyfriends show up? I bet the ex's could think of a few things to do to kill some time. The only changes I would make would be to: (1) tie their legs as far apart as possible, for maximum discomfort and to make their vulnerability very obvious; (2) put high heels on them. Yeah, I know they are on a beach. Still, I prefer high heels for the extra degree of titillation. That's just me. Chase

I put up some select chad sets here. (**the link taken down due to bandwidth costs** - 053103 Scribbler)

These are stills from the erotic perversion videos, produced by the HOM crew, but not for HOM. Apparently for a Dutch company that is no more (I discussed this with chad via email not too long ago).

The chad series of classic BD images are about to hit and surpass 5000--who'd da thought! I haven't decided how long I'll keep these select ones posted on my site, so if you don't have them, get them while you can.

As shown by the number of posts in one day, the staked out in the sun theme rates high with the vox populi- but has it ever been done right on film?

The only scene I remember is from an old Cal-Star production called "The Terror Zone" (recently released by another company) in which Crystal Breeze was staked out in the desert for all to short a time. Perversly (and not in a good way) in a movie that did have nudity, her panties are left on. Any other scenes out there?

Ralphus also brought out a slung under a pole pict last week. Another great archtypical scene which I believe has never been fully explored. Some mainstream movies have approached it, but are there any scenes out there where the victim is carried about naked?

The Greek File- I remember this movie too. Pia Snow and Ronnie Dixon, my favorite 80's bondage stars. It was very similar to "The Spy Game" also by Cal Star which featured both of them as well. (The Spy Game has been re-released by the same company that has re-released "The Terror Zone," it might be the film mentioned with Ronnie Dixon bound in front of the fire place). Of the two movies, "The Greek File" is the better- unlike the other, it has full nudity, and tastey Ronnie Dixon gets tasted against her will ( at least the earlier cuts- later versions of the film I saw years ago tended to have scenes cut, a problem with old Cal Star productions.) I think Ronnie Dixon and Tina Cambridge are the same person, does anyone know? I also read some place that she was a former beauty contestant.

Thanks Scribbler for the scans. I've just found the following auction website : it sells the so-called Erotic Perversions loops (http://www.mslafleur.com/auction.html). The item titled Whip And Pierce looks like a Whitman loop. Comments mention Denmark...

Scribbler: Many thanks for the access to all those Chad scans. I lost a bunch of mine a while back so these are most appreciated.

Rod: "Whip and Pierce" is indeed one of the Whitman loops. It's on my "Erotic Perversion" tape.

g-in-o: Carried on a pole scenes in movies...can't recall ever seeing the victim naked; in fact, I can only remember one scene like that in an old Italian movie called White Slave, and it was a pretty brief sequence. It didn't stop them from putting that particular picture on the video box, though. They know what sells a movie!

White Slave

The TV show "Angel" also had a carried on a pole scene with Charisma Carpenter a few years back; of course, no nudity in that one, either.

Staked out in the sun: I don't think I've ever actually seen this particular theme ever done in a movie, which surprises me because it is an idea that seems ripe with possibilities. I do have an old bondage mag with a girl staked out on the lawn (wearing panties) and Club Dead sells a short mpeg featurette that features a chick staked out totally naked, presumably before being killed. Here's a still from it on my Homepage URL above.

Myself, I think this would be a great torture concept and I'm surprised no adult producer has taken a chance on attempting such a scenario. Think about it. You could show the victim streched out and uncomfortable, the beads of sweat pouring off her body (easy to simulate). You could constantly cut away to the blazing sun above and show her skin reddening as the hours slowly go by. Her captor could torment her further by pouring water next to her just so close that she cannot get any into her mouth, further adding to her frustration and mental anguish. And of course, there's the rape aspect, with her helplessly spread and totally vulnerable. Maybe a whole gang of men can take turns gang-raping her while she's staked out in the ground. I saw this in an old movie called Trap Them and Kill Them with Laura Gemser where this blonde captive was raped on the ground one by one by a group of natives; only she wasn't staked out, unfortunately. Other than that, it was a great scene, and it could certainly be pulled off better by the likes of ZFX, if Rick will give it a shot. Just spread-eagle Lisa in the blazing sun and let her suffer that way (should be easy to find a sunny day in Florida!) and have someone rape her while she's pinned to the ground. I know I'd buy it!

Ralphus~Tonight's pic...Victoria Principle?

Your latest review sounds rather generous for a movie w/only a seven minute B&D scene in it. The premise does sound kinda interesting though. Reminds me a little of "West World", where guests at an amusment park are entertained by lifelike robots catering to each individual guest's fantasies. But I still think your Gauge jones is showing through.

Outdoor stakeouts~I remember a pretty good one on a flick called "Wild Thing" (I think). Staked out and stripped. One of the best parts of the scene was curiously enough, the dialog. After staking out his victim, the captor, while stripping her talks to her..."Yoy won't need these anymore...In fact, you may never need them again." Or something to that effect. I gives an example to how proper dialog can enhance a scene, giving an otherwise basic scene and element of menace.

Hey gang. Re: staked out in the sun, zero appeal for me as to the reddening, torture aspect of it. As I've posted in the past, I'm more into the bondage and sex, not torture. And sunburns are so awful, this seems so cruel. Still, I know my own kinks would repel some people, so I try to keep an open mind and not judge you guys who like that sort of thing too harshly. As long as it's fantasy or consensual, different strokes and all that, whatever floats yer boat.

It's been a long time since my video store has had a new ZFX, it just got one in but I was disappointed. I think it was #6 of SOB? Sorry, Rick, while the new actress was cute, and Lisa's scene had a couple of moments, mostly I just found it boring. I really tried to keep an open mind, because in the past some ZFX flix that didn't impress me at first later grew on me. (Did that ever happen to you guys?) Fpr example, I didn't care much for Dark Offering at first, but over time that scene with the blond chick returning home, being kidnapped by the four hooded guys in her kitchen, and then tied spread eagles on the sacrifice table has become one of my favorite scenes.

I also rented one of the Virgin Kink movies, I think it was # 21?, and that was lousy, too. Sometimes this series can be pretty good, especially if it's a cute mainstream porn actress who you're just itching to see in bondage, but this one had no bondage, just mild whipping, and non-cute chicks, really disappointing. It has been the "vanilla" flix which have gotten my engine revved recently. The Unnatural Sex and Service Animals ones are always good, if you like that kind of dominance, A2M kind of thing.

One of the Service Animal ones, I think it was #10, had an interesting scene where the girl was collared during the whole scene with a bunch of balloons with the balloon strings wound tightly around her neck. She seemed to be into the choking, sometimes grabbing the strings and pulling them herself when the guys weren't doing it to her. The scene was bizarre, at times very erotic and at times not so much, but certainly it was creative. I like that series because they are often creative.

I also saw Gauge in something, maybe a Whack Attack movie, where her hands were briefly handcuffed behind her outdoors while she blew some guys. But they quickly removed the cuffs, and the scene wasn't so good. I like Gauge, but I have almost no interest in outdoor scenes. In real life I have made love outdoors on the beach and it's been nicely erotic and sensual and all that, but in my fantasies for some reason outdoor scenes usually turn me off, and even many indoor scenes if they are in less plausible places (like the kitchen or living room). I really like a strong sense of menace, and to me there is something more erotic about that slow sensual dance of dom and sub taking place in a bedroom. People's eroticism is so weirdly individual, isn't it?

One flick I saw was A-1 excellent, Randy West's Up & Cummers I think # 98 with Jenna Haze. (I rented, didn't buy, so sorry for being unsure of the #s). I'd never seen an Up and Cummers before, and I really liked the way it was filmed, Randy West took a lot more time with each actress than most porn films do. There were three girls only, all making love with him. It reminded me of Ed Powers' style, but just much better done.

But the highlight was Jenna Haze's scenes, who is an incredible hotty, and who said that when she was making West's film it was the end of her first week in porn, so she was a complete porn actress newbie. The best scene comes at the very end of the movie, where she does her first on-screen anal, and she is freaked out by the intensity and he has to keep stopping but then restarting again.

Don't get me wrong, I like the gonzo genre with painful anals and gapes and the like, but I have long been looking for an anal scene filmed a little less graphically and where the girl is totally into it so I can reassure my girlfriends that anal sex is okay. And Haze is so-o into it in this scene, she keeps saying things like, "Oh my gawd, that is so intense, I can't believe how good that feels, I swear I'm turning into an anal fanatic, I had anal in my private life the other night and I thought THAT was good, but this is incredible!" So guys, if you ever need an anal scene to show a S.O., this is the one.

Randy West does act a little dominantly in a few of these scenes, holding the girls arms down rightly over their heads and that kind of thing. So it got me wondering which episodes are the good ones in this Up & Cummers series, and whether in any of them he explores that dominance thing a little further. If anyone knows, can they post to the board, thanks.

Ralphus, great work on the board as always, and I really like the reviews section. I've been quiet lately only because the topics have veered away from ZFX and not been of my interest, and also because my vid store, while good, has been so slow with new ZFX titles. Peace, zee-ef-ex

Blah, my last post got lost. so i'll try this again.
I had an idea for a scenario involving girls staked out at the beach. To the guy who hates torture, hey its fantasy, noone here wants to hurt REAL women, ok? at least I don't.

anyway how about a scenario where a woman is staked out during low tide so that by high tide she'll be covered in water and drown. But you first rape her repeatedly and whip her mercilessly. Then as the water comes up, the salt water will cause her lots of pain/agony.
You can also promise to untie her or maybe promise to give her a breathing tube if she gives you a good blow job...
then after the blow job you leave and tell her you lied...
after she nearly drowns, you feed her a breathing tube...keep her alive for a while, shutting off the air occasionally.....
i could go on but you get the idea.
am i sick? probably but such is life

Paulus Atreides~Cool idea! Kinda reminds me of the bathtub scene I posted a while back. Where the girl is secured to the bottom of the tub by a cord tied around her throat, tied through the cross of the drain. Given a breathing tube to prolong her torment.

But spread-eagle on the beach...way cool!!

If anybody likes the Classic Tit Torture image at the top of today's page, you might like the link I've provided above.

I'm never quite sure how to handle showing off some of the photos I've taken. Scribbler's provided me some webspace to display images at their regular size instead of the shrunken sizes at my Yahoo group.

There's some crossover from the stuff I do and what ZFX does, but it's not a perfect match. I'm much more into rape fantasies than torture, so the focus is on groping the helpless gal. I've had the good fortune to work with models that are very expressive and great at emoting horror, fear, and pain.

I've been debating how okay it would be to announce the pages Scribbler put up. There's always a fine line in these things between sharing some cool photos and spamming. I've participated on and off in this group for years, so it's not as if I only come here to spam. I do try to add info to the group when I can. I cannot imagine that anybody here will be too upset with the photos I'm sharing.

So far, there's only been 53 page views at the Super-heroines link. That at least gives me a idea of how few people regularly go through my group's messages. I thought there'd at least be a few hundred, so that demonstrates how deceptive the number of group members is to determining regular interest in the group. Based on that bit of info, I'm not exactly overloading Scribbler's site.

Here's some site info Scribbler sent me:

> My site opened april 1st, I started tracking traffic via hitbox late april 2nd, and I've had 5,461 monthly unique visitors in april, and so far in may; 889 monthly unique visitors. Yet my message board has only had 14 posts saying thumbs up, and I've gotten a few more thumbs ups on other boards. So I guess I'm glad I'm not gauging traffic just from visitor responses!

> you do like I did, announce at a few relevant message boards, put up a link at Lorelei's and other places, you probably can get about 5000 new people a month finding your site. How many will become members remains to be seen. Tho I'd be curious about that,

The rough rule of thumb I've been given is that I can expect a few percent of site visitors to join my site when I finally put it up. Outside of a few bondage sites, most don't make enough money to do much better than break even with out of pocket costs (the largest of which is modeling fees). That doesn't even consider the amount of time invested in prepping photos and website maintenance. When you see a model site go down, you can get an appreciation of how hard it is to break even with this stuff. A model site saves thousands of dollars a year on modeling costs alone compared to photographer sites.

> I like your stuff tho. There's some Jason Whitman influence I see sometimes that I really like.

There's a little of that in my work. I've got nearly every HOM mag he did and often pull out those mags to kick start my fantasies. I'm not trying to out and out ape what he does, but the influence is there.

> The models are hot and they're the focus, so that works well.

I have been lucky to find a lot of very attractive models. I remain amazed that my success rate of finding models, willing to do force shoots, is no better with bondage models than with mainstream models. The link I provided above, is for a shoot with Candace and this was her first bondage shoot. You wouldn't know that because she has great poses and expressions and remains one of my favorite models. I've just sent Scribbler an Elkie Cooper set and she's another fave.

> I think I've already mentioned that the villain's (except for Jon Woods) aren't as good, but they are secondary in importance. Still when the attitude or acting of the villain is done well, it does help.

In most cases, I'm using a villain that the model has picked and he could be a boyfriend, husband, or just a friend. I completely agree that the villain makes a difference, but I'm limited in who I can use for these types of shoots. When the villain's expressions are completely off, I'll likely crop his head out. In the end, it is really the model who sells the shoot.

> One thing you could try in photo retouching is change where their eyes are looking. In some photos they're just looking off somewhere oblivious, and it seems out of place.

I haven't gotten that comment before. Up to now, it's been a deliberate choice on my part to not always have the model looking into the camera. It often works for single images, but it can be a bit corny in a large story oriented set. It breaks the feeling that what's happening is real and makes the camera too noticeable in what's happening. I've usually asked models to not look directly at the camera. I'd like to hear other opinions on this.

RR: Very nice set of pics, thank you! The model is hot, and her expressions are perfect (always helps to have her mouth taped, too, of course!). I do agree with what Scribbler said about the villain looking a bit off, mainly because he's staring at the camera in a few pics and that takes the focus away from the model, but it's a minor quibble and I liked the pictures very much.

We're still waiting on Dreambook to fix our problem with the postings, so if anyone tries to post here and cannot, please send your post to me via e-mail and I will add your comments to the site. I apologize about the delay and we hope to have the problem fixed soon.

Scribbler just put up the Elkie set and you'll probably have to agree that she's equally hot and expressive if not even a little more so.

On the Candace set, I hadn't quite realized that her boyfriend was looking into the camera as often as he was. It takes about 2 1/2 hours for a shoot and I'm snapping pix very fast, so most of my time is spent looking through a viewfinder and there's not enough detail there to know exactly what's going on. How much time does anybody want to spend looking at the villain when there's a gorgeous gal in serious distress. I did fix one of the pix up, but debated the effort to do the rest because it's a little more difficult to do than I expected and still make it look right. I could always wrap a story around the set where there was a photographer taking photos of the attack.

Ralphus is right, my comment about the eyes looking somewhere oblivious was about the villains, not the girls. The villain IMO should mostly be looking at the model/actress he's abusing, with maybe an occasional shot where he (and she) is looking at the rope, cuffs, clothespin, etc. he's about to use on her. The girls can kind of look anywhere (tho with a purpose), at the villain, at themselves, occasionally off in a distance with a sort of I can't believe this is happening to me look, etc. And closing her eyes in pain or distress works great too.

I do agree with you about not having talent look directly into the camera. This is especially bad in video if they do, and always ends up on the editing room floor so to speak. Not so bad if it happens in a photo story a couple times or so--if the girl does it. This can turn out to be a really good photo sometimes, but you're right to not use it too much. Shooting a photo story series is kind of like shooting a movie but only showing key frames. So yeah, your choice is the right one. Also, when you start doing video, don't let talent look at an offscreen monitor either.

I think it's fine to announce relevant stuff on the GIMP board. Rick does, Dan Hawke and Steve from Forbidden do on occasion, and so do I. If someone spams without contributing in any other way, Ralphus (or I) will probably delete it, but you've been a contributor for a while, so no problem there.

I really like the more intense breast squeezing in your photos. Haven't seen that since classic HOM mags and loops. I tried to do it in my Supragrrl poser comic, with marginal results. If anyone knows of other producers doing it, let us know.

Villain wise, I like the hooded look, not sure why exactly, maybe cause it seems more anonymous, and more menacing. When it's too hot to wear a hood, dark sunglasses can also work, and would be helpful to solve the eye direction problem for the less experienced actors. Making the cameraman a 3rd character is an idea I've had too, tho I'm usually thinking video with voice over. Could definitely work. She could be running for office and they're doing this to her as blackmail so she'll pull out. Could be any sort of blackmail theme.

Time to drop my clurking device and offer up an opinion. I agree that its fine to post information on relevant topics. Rick production rate is too slow (no criticizm intentended) to keep up a decent rate of traffic on the board.

RR--You show real potential for storyline photos. Keep up the good work and let us know.

Ralphus-- again thank you for the reviews. Money is scarcer these days and it pays to read the board.

Nice picture indeed, but the position of her breasts and the whip leads me to believe that it is oriented wrongly: she is actually lying down on a bench, the picture should be rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise...

Great thing about an online forum is how much validity is given to the uninformed opinion - namely mine. Knowing nothing about video or photography, I still must disagree about the model looking at the camera. For me this is a highlight. Kim Wild and Arianna have both done video shoots in which they spent the entier time pleading with the camera while tied up, and I think the effect was great.

And even in scene bondage like Bruce Seven or Dan Hawke, I find myself trying to catch the occaisional glance at the camera. If it were me in the driver's seat, I would make eye contact a staple of any bondage flick. Just a few moments where the viewer gets to taste, more intimately, the model/character's predicament.....

It depends what kind of scene is being shot, and what the camera's role in it is. If the story is where a character sets up a camera to record what goes on, or has a 3rd person there (the cameraman playing a character), and all the characters know the camera is part of the story, then yeah, the camera presence is part of the scene so characters can look at it, talk about it, acknowledge it, etc. If it's a POV (point of view) shot, where the camera is the eyes of someone in the scene, or meant to bring the viewer into the scene, as tho he's actually there looking in on things, then the girl can look at that person and address that person, via the camera.

But most of the time in movies/TV presenting fictional stories, the camera is an invisible presence in the room that characters aren't supposed to know is there, so they don't acknowledge the camera or look directly at it. There are exceptions like in SCRUBS or ANNIE HALL, where a character addresses the audience directly through the camera, but that's more of a novelty thing.

You like what you like, and there's nothing wrong with that. The occasional glance at the camera on a shoot where the camera's supposed to be invisible doesn't work for me in video. Tho it works OK for a few shots in an equivalent photo story (if the girl does it, not the villain--not sure why, but works for me). If the camera is a prop in the scene known to be there by the characters, then they can look at the camera all they want (within reason).

Am I repeating myself too much? seems like it.

> Ralphus is right, my comment about the eyes looking somewhere oblivious was about the villains, not the girls.

That's just a hazard in hiring couples. Jon Woods has more practice acting, so he can maintain the role of a villain effectively through a shoot. With the others, I'm getting what I can. .

It's interesting that we've got different opinions on having the model look directly into the camera. I've seen lots of great detective cover photos doing that and it works a lot in love bondage shoots where the camera is almost like a person looking in. It does break the storyline shoots up, so I won't have models looking at the camera often. I'll have to keep a better eye on what the villains are doing. Considering that I'm so focused on the model and often have to Photoshop out a light or other prop, it'll be hard to pay attention to what the guy's doing. .

> So yeah, your choice is the right one. Also, when you start doing video, don't let talent look at an offscreen monitor either.

Actually, I've shot a few. They're incredibly amateurish where it's just me walking around with a camera. I've essentially shot them just for myself, figuring that they're too crude to ever imagine anybody wanting to pay for them. Maybe it's working looking into a means to distribute them.

> I really like the more intense breast squeezing in your photos. Haven't seen that since classic HOM mags and loops. I tried to do it in my Supragrrl poser comic, with marginal results. If anyone knows of other producers doing it, let us know.

Like everybody else that seems to cross the line from viewer to producer, I mostly wound up doing it because I couldn't find the kind of material I want.

I've long felt there was a middle ground area in bondage that nobody seemed to be working on. It seemed as if there was love bondage on one extreme and torture bondage on the other with little content in between. It wasn't till Lorelei started doing her ForceFantasies site that I started finding material that was along the lines of what I was looking for. Even there, Lorelei made some choices, such as no gag, that didn't 100% match up with what I wanted to see. That eventually spurred me to shoot my own material and the first BondCon put me in an environment where I could find models to work with.

One of the things I wanted to see were more rough breast squeezing. To me, it's one of the most visually powerful images. It's an attack on the woman's femininity. Breasts are the most outwardly visual cue that separates men from women and society places such importance on them. There's something incredibly erotic for me to see men squeezing a woman's breasts against her will. It's a harsh image, seeing the flesh of the breasts bunched around the fingers of a cruel hand.

Part of what makes breast squeezing so compelling is that a medium shot gets both the head and the breasts in the frame. Capturing a rape on film has to mostly be done in a long shot because the action is taking place on the other side of the body. An attack on a woman's breasts become much more personal because the reaction is immediately reflected in her expressions.

Outside of Lorele's FF site, I'm not sure where somebody can find a lot of images of breasts being squeezed.

> Villain wise, I like the hooded look, not sure why exactly, maybe cause it seems more anonymous, and more menacing. When it's too hot to wear a hood, dark sunglasses can also work, and would be helpful to solve the eye direction problem for the less experienced actors.

A hood also masks the villain's expressions and that makes the villain look more imposing. A hood shares no emotions. Look at some of the more recent horror film monsters, such as Halloween's Michael Meyers or Jason. These are emotionless monsters, devoid of any sympathy or pity.

I'll have to remember to ask Candace's boyfriend to bring some shades the next time I work with him

Dan Hawke's latest release is DH40: Tormented Tart, and right away it's an improvement over the last one I saw from him, mainly because this one stars the lovely blonde Angelica Vamp. Like seemingly every other model in the "biz" today, she also sports a tattoo, but at least it's on her back shoulder and not nearly as omnipresent as others I've seen. The tape starts off as Dan drags her into his warehouse and handcuffs her hands to a beam above. He gags her with a red ball gag, and completely rips her dress off her body. Her panties are still on, but Dan knows what he wants done with those. After a bit of whipping to inspire her to open her mouth, he stuffs the panties in her mouth and seals them over with several strips of duct tape (yes!). Dan then hoists one of her legs off the ground and ties it to a rope through her crotch, even adding weights to the rope and then leaving her alone to balance on one leg for a while.

One major debit in this tape, and it simply has to be mentioned: Dan employs the "Dutch angle", in which the camera is turned sideways, far too often, especially in the otherwise fine opening scene. We have to watch a good deal of the action with our head at an angle, and then at times, Dan cuts to another Dutch angle going the other way, then sideways the other direction again, until I was getting whiplash from tilting my head back and forth! It's extremely annoying, and I honestly see no reason to shoot any of the action sideways; all it does is draw attention to itself and away from the action onscreen.

The next scene has Angelica (wearing clothing again, odd) bound on her stomach on a wooden crate. She is gagged with a bit gag, and her arms are chained behind her and attached to a beam on the ceiling, along with her legs. Dan then slowly hoists her off the ground and she is left to helplessly spin under her own weight. He keeps her up there for a while, and the scene might have benefited from some tighter editing. At one point we hear Hawke tell her, "Let us know when it's too much, okay?" This ruins the fantasy that this is a nonconsensual scene.

This is followed by a scene where she is tied on her knees, ankles tied together with her hands behind her back, wearing a black teddy and her mouth gagged with a ring gag. Dan exposes her breasts and runs a rope through her pussy lips and ties it out away from her, tightening it so that she has to deal with the strain around her crotch. Not much else happens; we just get to watch her struggle in bondage, and she's nice to look at.

Next up, Angelica is naked except for white heels and stockings, with her boobs tied up and her arms bound behind her. Her mouth is filled with a white ball gag. Dan lifts her onto a wooden horse, chaining her legs far apart so that all the weight is on her pussy. He then leaves her there to endure it for a while. The scene is too padded, but along the way, we're treated to a few nice close ups of drool dripping down from the ball gag between her lips.

The final scene is the best of the tape, and the main reason for getting this tape, IMO. Dan has Angelica lying naked on her back on a wooden "Y" rack, with her legs spread wide and locked in there with chains. Her wrists are cuffed over her head and she is gagged with a black ball gag. She is a lovely site indeed.

Dan ties a line around her nipples and secures it to a beam above her, pulling her nipples taut. Then he takes clamps and opens up her pussy lips, pulling the cords attached to the clamps away from her and tying them to her toes, one on each side. With her all stretched and opened up, he tantalizes and tortures her pussy with a vibrator, moving it around until she is moaning and writhing her binds. She cums from the vibrator treatment, and struggles so much that she pulls out the lines from her nipples. So, to punish her, Dan replaces them with a whole slew of clothespins tightened around her breasts, finishing by applying the final pins to her nipples and pussy lips. After leaving her alone for a few minutes to suffer, he returns to torment her further as he slowly takes them off, showing off the nice marks left on her body. He tightens up the rack a bit more and leaves her stretched out as the tape ends.

Overall, there's lots of good stuff here, starting with a beautiful model and Dan's inventive bondage positions. And, like most of Hawke's work, it could benefit from tighter editing and especially, more competent direction. It was frustrating to watch early on but improves as it builds to its climax.
My grade: B-

Nice review of DH40. Definitely something I might pick up. I love that still you posted. Could you also post a still from the horse scene? I think I mentioned earlier that I love horse scenes and was hoping ZFX would do one of those...but I think Rick isn't into it.

I don't know if Rick isn't into it or just doesn't have access to a wooden horse. I know you can't go to your local Wal-Mart and purchase one. I know this for a fact; I tried and all I got were strange looks. I left before security was called :)

Ralphus~Thanks for the review.

From a segment of your review you wrote~~The next scene has Angelica (wearing clothing again, odd)~~. I don't mean this as a put down...especially since I have't seen the flick. But that's kinda been one of my pet peeves. If you've already got her naked...why??? To me it just kinda defeats the purpose. It also could be risky. I mean, unless you render the victim unconscious, you take the risk of having her escape, or catch a well placed kick in the crotch as you loosen her bonds, or both. Anyway, for me, it's just seems counter productive.

Also I think Paulas is correct...I think I remember Rick mentioning somewhere that he wasn't into the wooden horse thing.

Chris: Welcome to the board! Nice to see a new ZFX fan here posting. Actually, Penelope Pace and Monica Moore were in South of the Border, both a couple of similar blonde, big-breasted actresses. Easy to confuse them.

Speaking of South of the Border, isn't it about time for Part 7 to be released? Already May and no new ZFX yet this year? After seeing Elaine Payton in SOB-6, I'm chomping at the bit for the final chapter. This could be Rick's best series ever, and that's saying a lot.

Here's an informal poll for our readers. In your opinion, what's the best multi-tape series (more than 2) that ZFX has released? Some of you newbies who got into ZFX after they had already been making tapes a few years may not have seen them all and that's okay. There are no right or wrong answers; this is your personal opinion only, so be sure and vote.

Here are the nominees:

Guinea Pigs 1-5
Night Prowler 1-5
Alien Probe 1-3
Gangland 1-5
Alien Probe 1-3
The Necklace 1-3
Video Pirates 1-5
War Pigs 1-4
Blunt Trauma 1-4
South of the Border 1-6 (currently)
Whiplash 1-4
Machine Head, Cold Metal, Rage Against The Machine
Miss Ballista 1-3

So many good choices there. All those memories...

Regular readers will find no surprise with my #1 choice- South of the Border, especially from 3 on. Ballista follows, with Blunt Trauma third.

Its been awhile since we heard from headquarters. What is up on the horizon Rick? And yes, what little we have heard about SOB VII has me betting on a great film.

I've written them four times about this particular problem and I've gotten 4 auto-responses so far, but no one has fixed it yet. Unfortunately, the bugaboo seems to only show up on longer posts, and since they take longer to write, it's doubly annoying that they are the ones that don't show up.

Please e-mail your post to me and I can add it manually. Same goes with anyone else who has had problems. I've had to do this for several posters so far and it's no problem for me at all.

Ralphus - Shame on you! Shame, Shame, Shame. :)

I can't believe you left off my absolute by far the favoritest series.

Beyond Driven 1-3.

Number 1 wasn't that great, but wasn't that bad either. However numbers 2 and 3 have a couple of my all time favorite ZFX Rape scenes. Number 2 with the Bondage and Rape on the workout bench and that nice shot of the cum dripping out of her ass and into her crotch. Mmmmmmm. And then number 3 with one of my favorite Lisa rapes. Doggy style. I also love the attempt at a more "horror" oriented theme. Wish it could have been done better. But do realize that Rick is on a very small tight budget. Still I can dream about decaying zombies abducting, tormenting, and raping beautiful women ZFX style. :)

After that I'd have to say that the Alien Probe series comes in for a close 2nd. The South of the Border series comes in a close 3rd.

For the other series they had some hits and misses for me. For example I absolutely loved Video Pirates 1. The whole aerobics outfit thing just does wonders for me. It would have been even better if she had gotten raped. However some of the others in the series I didn't much care for.

I noticed you left off the 2 part "mini-series" so I won't comment on them. But there's some good stuff there also.

But out of all the series. The Beyond Driven stuff is by far my favorite. It's a long ways from that to the Alien Probe series. I'm crossing my fingers that the Rick will re-release them with more explicit scenes. If you haven't seen them yet, Beyond Driven 2 and 3 are absolute MUST SEE videos for any ZFX fan. :) I just love the diabolical weight bench/dildo/struggling victim scene in the 2nd video. You have to see it to know what I mean. But I consider that scene absolute pure genius. And I just drool to think what Rick could do with something like that now-a-days without so many of the restrictions that held him back at the time.

Also, I would NOT recommend purchasing Fantom Kiler 3. I have to say I was majorly disappointed in this one. I just received it yesterday and plan on forcing myself to watch it one more time before trying to come up with a review for it. However, I don't think that will change my opinion of it. I still love the first 2 in the series however. There is also a very very short (15-20 second) clip at the end that implies there will be a 4th in the series. You can't tell anything at all from it however.

Ralphi~It's kinda hard for me to vote here as I haven't really seen too many on them. Or some of the ones I have seen for the series' I haven't cared for enough to want to get others of.

"Machine Head" (or one from that series as I have no memory at times) for example, didn't much care for as it turned out it didn't have many scenes that float my boat. And I tend to be very hard to please, for lack of any better way to put it, if a film has too much of this, or not enough of that. Clothing's a big thing w/me. The lack of the right outfit...or too much of it left on, can ruin much of a scene for me.

"War Pigs" would be another case in point. It could have been a nominee here if it were not for the combat boots being left on the entire time. I thought the first two in the series were well done, with good scenes, but just couldn't get past those boots. Others may be able to look past it, but to me, there's almost nothing more causing of a loss of erection that seeing a beautiful babe, naked and bound, and having her there in combat boots. One of the most singularly un-sexy things I can think of. Like I said, could have been a nominee...

"Miss Balista" I can't nominate for similar reasons. As much as I liked part II, I am really not into the super heroine type outfits/theme. So even though I really liked it a lot, I just couldn't get myself to want to get any others in the series. Haven't seen 'em, can't nominate 'em.

So I guess I'm gonna have to go with the SOB series. Lots of great looking women in appealing scenes.

I have a question for the panel. I've seen some of Rick's early works but as I have pointed out, haven't seen as many as most all of you. What film was Rick's first that he switched from scenes ("Hardbound TV" as an example of a more scene than story vid...if my memory is correct on the title) to a full story line video? And which is the video you think he turned the corner in and did effectively for the first time?

I hope this get's through. :P

AVF - Good question. I had to go back to the official ZFX site to look at the chronology to figure out which was the first that featured a "Storyline" from start to finish rather than being just a series of totally unrelated (other than the bondage) scenes. And guess what? The first official ZFX title that Rick has listed is also the first one with a storyline. It also happens to be a good one. Maybe not up to the same quality as those made recently, it was extremely good at the time.

True Detective.

I was surprised because for some reason I had thought Tied Tales had come out first. Just goes to show how bad your memory gets when you start getting old. :D

As to a "turning point." Ack, for me there wasn't really one because I kind of followed ZFX as it grew. And if anyone remembers the early 90's EVERYTHING other than Rick's work was pretty damned Vanilla. So EVERYTHING he released was great. Looking back a few of the older titles would be down on my list of priorites to re-purchase on DVD, but there are still a few that I would get in a heartbeat.

Anyway, the point being, that for me there wasn't a point where ZFX went from good to "great god almighty this is unbelievably good." :D It was just a good thing that kept getting better, with the occasional video that I didn't care much for (Vostock Core, the Worm for example). However it was extremely rare for me to not at least like the majority of Rick's work. And more often than not I absolutely loved his work and can't imagine not having it.

Silent Budda~Curious your mentioning "Tru Detective". I got it on DVD a few weeks ago but have not been able to watch it due to my player being so old it only plays original format DVD's.

Problem sloved...Just got a new player today. SOON!!!

The clip of Chandra makes me long for her return someday. She was a ZFX hottie! As much as I like Lisa K. it was Chandra who I thought of for the longest time as ZFX's flagship actress(for lack of any other correct wording).

Question, first there was Chandra (meaning appearing in quantities of films). The torch has been passed on (in my thinking at least) to Lisa now. And although I hope Lisa will continue to stick around, it kinda seems that her appearances are getting less frequent (maybe it just seems that way due to lack of multiple releases). Is there anyone in the wings who appears to be able to step up and be that actress who will be able to instantly make people think ZFX, the way Chandra, Penelope, or Lisa does?

Any thoughts?

Silent Buddha and I must be on similar wavelengths. I agree with his choices, Beyond Driven my favorite series, and probably Video Pirates (some of them) as second. Also, I agree bout that weight-bench scene, my favorite ZFX scene of all time.

Here are two more questions to chew on: (1) Favorite ZFX scene? (2) Would you mind/enjoy if your favorite ZFX scene was repeated/updated with a new actress? You know how old movies are remade all the time? I think it would be way interesting, and fun, for Rick to try remaking that weight bench scene with another actress and using his gizmo wizology f/x. What say you?

AvF: Chandra was Miss ZFX for Rick for a long time. He would find ways to cast her in almost every tape even when he had other girls playing the victims. Now to me, she excelled as the distressed damsel, but she also did a great job playing the girlfriend of the villain, laughing at their misfortunes, or else getting so turned on by watching them suffer that she would get off on it. One of my favorite scenes ever was when she and Rick team up to punish Melisa Pope in the Video Pirates series. She took such delight in torturing her, taunting her and laughing it up with Rick that the scene just would not have worked as well without her.

I checked. Lisa Kinkaid made her first tape with ZFX way back in 1995. Eight years ago! No wonder people associate ZFX with her, especially now that she passed Chandra to become the all-time most prolific performer in ZFX history. I honestly don't see anyone taking her place, although I'm not Rick and I have no idea what his plans are and whether he has any new girls lined up. From what I hear, Rick is super-busy with DVD conversions, and I'm guessing we may only get one or two new tapes this year. When he's done updating his immense catalog, maybe he'll get back to work and start shooting again, or maybe he'll just retire and count his millions and look back on fine career. I hope he still has the desire to go out and start tying up girls again on film, because there's still nobody close to making bondage tapes with the kind of brutal themes that he delivers in his works.

I didn't discover ZFX till well after 1995...i think its only been a few years. I think it'll be fun to rexplore the older ZFX tapes once they're on DVD. It would be a tragedy if rick retires someday...hopefully that's far off into the future. I mean heck just imagine the first HDTV version of ZFX !!! Maybe 10 years from now?

Zee-ef-ex wrote:(1) Favorite ZFX scene? (2) Would you mind/enjoy if your favorite ZFX scene was repeated/updated with a new actress?

Favorite scene...as much as I liked the dunking scene from the SOB series I think I still like Chandra's ending scene in "Panticide Peepshow II" where's she's tied to the door the best. She did a classic preformance IMO as she tried her best to fight off the assult while trying to reach up to loosen the cord around her throat that was holding her to the door at the same time. The combination of acting and her oh so hot looks in this one is what makes it my favorite scene.

Question 2] Similar to a lobby for Rick to re-make some of his older works w/a new cast. The one that had great potential and cries out to be re-made is "Trojan Horse". The lead is just dying to be done by someone with a little bit more of a cute/sexy screen persona. I know the lead was suppose to be an unddercover cop (if I remember right...only watched it once) but still a little bit of cuteness as opposed to a street tough looks wouldn't have hurted. If I had to choose a scene only to be re-made it would again have to be the dunking scene. By whom? Every ZFX actress Rick get should be hung upside down and dunked at least once ;)

Ralphus~ Chandra...Miss ZFX. I tried out my new DVD player and everything's a go. Haven't actually watched the movie but ran the previews as a try out. I'ts been a while since I've actually watched a flick w/Chandra in it but she was one of the first to appear on the preview segment. Man!, she had such a sweet little body, at least later in her ZFX career. Early on she was a little bit of the butter ball at times. Not nessecarily overweight but just not very well defined. I really miss that sweet little body.

Hey Everybody

AvF- Well, here is my opinion. The shooting of a ZFX video can take a toll on your body and mind, whether you are the Babe, Goon, or Camera Man (I mean Rick as he shoots his own stuff). Dont get me wrong, it is not like Rick is a slave driver (ok, maybe not a driver....) and has horrible work conditions because that is not the case. Anyways I will get to my point. A lot of time it is the actress saying I have had enough. I am sure there are other circumstances but that is a main one.

I am sure there have been many actresses that Rick would have loved to shoot more often, but circumstances on the actreses part hindered that. I think for Lisa to be doing it as long as she had is incredible. But how long can you can you last in the business, when the bondage is not your kink (as Lisa has mentioned here before). It just comes to a point when you say thats it, no more, and she will fade into the sunset, all the while being idolized on this board for eternity. Ralphus you going to change the name again when she retires? Bring Back The Lisa? Ok maybe not. The point is that many of the times it is out of Ricks hands.

I wouldnt worry about Rick giving up any time soon. He still has a lot of fire left in him. But I have said this before, I think if he could expand his business by bringing in people he trusts to work for him, like prop work, DVD conversions, Art work, and getting him his meals, He would be able to devot more time to filming. In the old days he was trying to establish himself in the business so he needed to crank out a lot of films. Well the problem with getting popular is that you have more work you have to do. The business is growing, but it is still mainly him doing all of it.

My god, do I sound like a Rick Kissup, or what? No way man, go to hell Rick!! Just kidding.

Well i did it again I rambled on for a complete post and didnt manage to really say anything important. I just hope that you guys can understand what I am trying to say, even if I cant.

Peace All

Paulus: That looks like Kelly McKay being whipped in the first pic. She also has a great scene where her captor ties her standing with her leg off the ground. He stuffs a giant dildo up her snatch and tapes it in place and goes and leaves her in that position. That tape also had Candi Licks being suspended off the ground by her wrists and whipped (another awesome scene) as well as the final segment of Melisa Pope's torture at the hands of Rick and Chandra. All in all, a great ending to a great series.

Favorite scenes re-filmed with new actresses is difficult because often they are a favorite because of the actress. That said, seeing the force feeding scene from Blunt Trauma-2 with Kelly McKay instead of Penelope Pace (not that I didn't enjoy Penelope Pace's performance) would be one of the more fascinating things I can imagine.

Good to have Mad Dog checking back in with an insider point of view. Hell, if getting Rick meals on the set ment more ZFX releases and the chance chip in with the flogging every now and then, I would be happy to chip in for catering!

Favorite scene? Ouch tough one, but I'm going with a tie between the workbench scene in Beyond Driven 2, and the weird monster psuedo-raping lisa scene in Underground 2. I know most people didn't like that one but I just get a kick out of that everytime. The whole stripping of "what's her name" in Forced Entry would have been right up there also if it had included her being raped at some point.

Remade scene? WAAAAAY too many list. :) The one thing I always wished for was more rape scenes that weren't so obviously fake. IE - obvious there is no way in hell the girl is getting penetrated (pants still on). No matter how corny or cheesy it may or may not look, a nice rape scene with some kind of penetration always comes across better to me then the rape scene where they try to imply the penetration by hiding it somehow.

I could also use a little help on something, and this looks like the best place to try to get some help. :P

First the easier of the questions. Does anyone know of a place where you can get "official" HOM reels on DVD? If nothing exists then VHS would have to "suffice." If no official channel exists for them I have no choice but to ask if there is an "unofficial" place to obtain them?

Next there's a few videos that I've been trying to get that I already know there aren't any official ways to purchase. Or that the official version are heavily edited to remove some of the best scenes as they aren't "politically correct." The following I'm trying to find in their original form.

Smoker - has some fairly nice non-consensual bondage with sex scenes. The main one being where Ron Jeremy and some other guy double penetrate a fairly decent looking girl which she's tied spread eagle in a doorway (if I remember correctly). I had the chance to buy this a few years back but by the time I got back to the video store to get it, they had gone out of business. How's that for crappy luck. :P This one you can get heavily edited from VCA, but I wanted the original unedited version.

Savage Fury - no bondage on this but has some light non-consensual rape scenes that supposedly happen in a women's dormitory on some college campus. I say light because it's fairly obvious it's trying to show a rape scene while not doing it in such a way as to get in trouble with the government. :P Can't even find this anymore. :P

Barbara Broadcast - featured a somewhat non-con bondage and sex scene towards the end. Once again an edited version is currently available, but I'd like to get a hold of an unedited version.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

You can get the old HOM stuff on DVD, but it means buying from bootleggers that used to rip Rick off a whie ago. I really tried to find an official route - wrote HOM and was told they will not be released. I guess you have to do what your concious tells you.

Savage Fury/ I've seen this flick! And I liked it too. I'm a pretty savvy web searcher SB. I'm here for you bud. I assume we are talking about this movie right?


Well, there are currently 4 uncut versions for sale on ebay. Go to the adult area and search on "Savage Fury."

Best of luck.

Multitape series: bought Gangland 1, liked the first half, second half the pacing slowed a lot, was a long drawn out candle wax dripping scene, about 30 minutes and the camera never moved. Then found out that there would be a Gangland 2 via previews and pretty much felt gypped. Those scenes from Gangland 2 should be in Gangland 1. Decided not to look into buying Gangland 2 or after, wasn't going to play that game.

Rented Video Pirates #?, might have been 5, started with previews of prior tapes, part of which had a guy and a girl tormenting and shoving a dildo up the ass (I think) of a girl victim. This part seemed really cool to me. Then the actual video started with long padded scenes of a blonde investigator and a brunette in various bondage scenes with slow dull action, snooze time for me. Didn't pursue checking out any more Video Pirates even tho, as I said, I did like that one part of the beginning previews.

My take on Multitape series. Don't mind the concept if each individual tape stands on it's own (but I've yet to see it). Don't care for it when the action is stretched out across multiple tapes as a money making device. Overall, don't really see the need for it in BDSM fetish tapes.

That pretty much mirrors my thoughts on Multitape series. The takedown, binding, and stripping the helpless heroines is what turns me on (xmall wonder that this is a feature of my photos). If a tape is continued, some of the models are already trapped, so the audience is denied seeing them be captured in sequels.

Although some people like plots in ZFX videos, it's not terribly important. The focus of these videos is torturing women. Whether the women are arrested by Latin American drug enforcers or kidnapped hitchhikers, or captured reporters, the action is basically the same. There's a little variety from video to video, but people are going to come back to ZFX if they like the action within. The plot adds incidental variety to the video, but it's not as important to how the women are being tormented.

Rather than have multipart tapes, I'd prefer to see branded videos. This would be videos where there's a fair amount of similarity to what's happening in the series. I rent more videos than I buy and that's because I'm often disappointed when a subsequent video doesn't match up with what I was hoping to see. I like force fantasies, so I'd like to see a ZFX series that focuses more on that element. A branded line of "Forced Entry" videos would be closer to my tastes than a typical ZFX video. I don't need a detailed plot, just a bunch of women being grabbed and groped.

Wow, looking at those HOM video cover stills makes me realize how great HOM was. I don't have any HOM videos, but I might try to get some. That site is in the UK though? that's far. by the way candi licks is hot, i didn't see her before, or know who she was. She's got perfect breasts :) i love how her nipples stand out there.

I don't know why you think Candi Licks isn't her real name. I was on a plane and was surprisingly the only person who laughed when the pilot concluded the flight by mentioning his name and the copilot's. The pilot's name was Rod Wood.

PS..Check out Kelly McKay in SOB IV through VI and Underland and you will see she trims up quite nicely. And a much better hair style as well.

Another multi-tape series of note: (only two though) "Voodoo Dolls" The first for the hilarious Lisa being fucked by a Teddy Bear, the second for every thing else that gets done to her.

Scribbler: Actually, I liked the candle wax scene in the original Gangland; I just went back and checked my copy and the camera was moving all throughout that scene. It was a long scene, though, and I suppose if you're not into candle wax torture, it might seem boring to you. But it was one of the earliest and better wax scenes that ZFX had filmed up til that time, and I thought it was a keeper. The sequel is ever better, IMO. Keri Downs was cute; not my favorite performer because I could always sense she was "into" the S&M scene (maybe it was the pussy rings that bothered me), but the Gangland series is her best showcase, and I would recommend it, particularly the first two.

The tape you rented sounds a bit like Video Pirates 4 or 5, hard to say. The scene you liked was most likely the aforementioned sequence of Rick and Chandra torturing Melisa Pope, which started in Part 2 and continued through Part 5. If I had to pick an all-time favorite ZFX scene, this would have to be it, even if it was stretched out over four tapes. And like you, I saw no reason to extend this footage over multiple tapes. The scene was hinted at with a 3-minute teaser at the end of Part One including the part where Rick shocks Melisa's pussy, and when VP-2 came out, I was all excited because I thought "Yes, finally! I'll get to see that scene!" But no, that particular sequence didn't begin until Part 2 and didn't actually deliver the electric shock scene until Part 4 (although thankfully, both 3 and 4 were released at the same time). I remember feeling a bit annoyed that I had to wait again after Part 2, although what Rick did was follow a formula that has worked since those old-time serials, and it worked, because he kept me tuning in to see what would happen the next time. But IMO, if Rick were to just edit all the Melisa footage together into one show, it would be one of the best ZFX vids ever made.

g-in-o: Personally, I liked Kelly McKay better before she made her "comeback" with Rick in the later tapes. Mainly because I liked her hair longer, and it was shorter when we saw her again, but she still has that lovely body. She has to be one of the most beautiful girls Rick has ever worked with.

Ralphus: OK, so maybe the camera moved. I was going by memory. Haven't watched it (Gangland) since about 1995. For me, it went from decent action (first half) to way too slow going (second half) .And because it was a "to be continued" kind of tape, there was no real payoff or climax (for me anyway). With the Bondage Classics, Punished or E.P. vids, usually with 3 to 5 loops, you get right into the beginning of the action, build up on the action, climax, end--times 5 (or 3). I prefer those kind of BDSM tapes, personally.

horses: Thumbs up on horses. Especially the kind suspended by rope on both sides like a sort of swing. Two thumbs up if it has a dildo sticking up from it. Three thumbs up if a hot girl is sitting on suspended horse with dildo inside her and being swung!

I usually don't like consentual stuff, but ever once and a while I'll pick up a DVD for particular parts or scenes I like. Like "UltraDom" because of "Alex Dane". The DVD stunk but Alex is such a hottie! She really needs to get into some good B&D productions. And she's out of Florida...hint, hint.

Anyway, I picked up another DVD that usually wouldn't be the norm for me. It's called "Wilde for Torment" Starring "Kim Wilde". She's still hot after all these years. I picked it up because it had a few bagging scenes and an upsidedown dunking. Not bad but not near as well as the one in the SOB series. Anyway I bring it up because I know alot of you are into breast torture. Though consentual this one has it's moments. In one scene she gets clothes pins zippered around one of her breasts. The clothes pins are then set on fire and later knocked off as she gets whipped. She gets some pretty rough treatment in some parts as you can hear the whip landing with some force to her breasts and pussy. Another good scene is where a cloth is placed around her nose and mouth as water is poured over it making it hard to breathe. Like I said, consentual but got it for only about $16.00 at CD Universe or Laser's Edge (both are pretty cheap and have been using both lately so can't remember which for sure).

Just thought I let you guys know about this one and to see if anyone else has seen it...and what their thoughts on it are.

AvF: Wilde For Torment, huh? I've seen two Kym Wilde vids and got burned on both of them. That's frustrating because she is a pretty cute woman and some of the bondage scenes I've seen from her intrigued me, but every time, she gets it wrong. She's not supposed to be enjoying herself! It all goes back to the "love bondage" concept that some companies use as their theme and that I loathe. I simply have a hard time enjoying a scene if the woman consents to the scene.

Master: "Hey Kym, let's hang you upside-down and dunk you into a tank of water!"

Kym: (pauses, then smiles) "Okay!"

All right, I'm being facetious, and I haven't seen the DVD you mention. Actually, it does sound pretty good, with stuff I would like to see (Breast torture? Clothespins set on fire? Oh, yeah!). I'm still a bit leery about Kym Wilde, though. I told myself I would never be fooled into getting another one of her tapes after the last one. Can you overlook (or edit out) the consensuality of the scenes and still enjoy them?

Ralphus~As I started the post I did say that it was consentual. With that being said you probably won't like it. It is all the master/slave garbage...accompanied by the dialog that goes with it. I don't like the stuff myself, but like I said, thought I'd pick it up for a couple of scenes. I figure for $16.00 for the DVD it was worth a chance. Maybe it's something you could soundtrack over. As for myself, I just turn down the volume and listen to music. It cuts out all the annoying "may I have another" crap...not that I would know if contained any or not.

Ahhh...sweet memories. Nightprowler 2 was my first ZFX tape and boy did I have ever have a crush on Holly Weston. There was something about her in that Nurse's outfit (and then out of it) that forever hooked me on ZFX. Indeed, until Lisa Kinkaid came along I thought there would be no other ZFX babe to replace her. Wonder whatever happened to Holly anyway ...

Hey, how about a ZFX reunion tape? or a whatever happened to ...? If Different Strokes, Three's Company and the Brady Bunch can do it, why not Rick?

Paulus and Magpie: Regarding reviews of Night Prowler 2 and Highway to Hell, well, I've already seen those tapes, years ago, and they are both good. As far as writing a new review on the older titles, that's probably up to Rick if he wants to send me the DVDs for review. I really don't want to review the 100 plus ZFX vids that they put out over the years, but maybe a few selected outstanding titles here and there wouldn't be so bad. For instance, I would love to write a review of The Cheerleaders of Perilous U., and I might buy that one for myself when it comes out on DVD. But I know I can't afford to spend 35 bucks a pop for every ZFX that gets re-released on DVD.

There are some real winners in ZFX's inventory that are probably not going to get noticed unless people see pictures or get a review. I post a few pics of Holly Weston and Chandra Sweet and suddenly people want to see all these old titles again. And for good reason. Rick is sitting on a goldmine of excellent titles that a lot of people don't know about. I'll help if I can, but I really don't remember a lot of details about much of his older work. If Rick wants me to promote any of his previous titles, I'd be glad to provide the reviews for him.
