Iago~Geeze...sensitive! I know you've been here for a while, and really like reading your posts (there, does that make up for it? ;-). But are you sure you weren't just lurking back then? No memory yes, but I still seem to think you came along a bit later. Feel free to correct me.

I think what Zee-eff-ex meant was that "Forced Entry" is always very high on everyone's list. Maybe not your favorite (and not mine either), but everyone I've read posting about it has it in thier top 5 (or 10).

I agree with you in I loved "Liza Cord", and was so looking forward to the continuation (which never happened). But where that one might be YouR favorite, I'd say mine would be "Pantacide Peepshow II". It also stars not only Amy and Chandra, but also Penelope (another example of most people's favorite...but not mine).

So where we may all have our individual favorites, almost universally (with an exception here and there of course) it falls within the range of top favorites.

Oh, and to the reason I don't care for Penelope (just my opinion of course), even though she's hot looking, I never cared for her acting. I've read that a lot of you guys find it a strong point, but I just never cared for the "bulging eye look of fear" she always employed. Reminds me too much of all the cheesy "Necrobabes" posed phoneiness.

Hey Linky~I know that there was a "Tiffany Twisted II" but I'm not sure if she appeared in any other videos. I KNOW Ralphus would know since he's seen all the ZFX's.

Not really being into Asian women I wouldn't know if she appeared in any others works.

Maybe we can get someone else to share info if they have any.

Linky: Welcome to the board, and we hope to see you here more frequently. The chick in Tiffany Twisted and its sequel was named Tiffany Lin. She is, to my knowledge, the only Asian performer Rick has ever filmed for ZFX. I don't know of any other appearances for her, and a check of the Adult Film Database didn't show anything else.

As far as whether AvF or Iago appeared here first, rather than relying on memory, I just checked the Guestbook Archives. Simple, huh? For the record, both of you first started posting back in July 1999. AvF posted one week earlier, if you really want to narrow it down. The earliest poster we had then who is still posting now (besides Rick and myself) is Per, who showed up in early May.

Forced Entry: I gave it an A-, and most people know I don't hand out A's too often. Two fabulous babes (Lisa and one-timer Jackilyn Lacross), a home invasion plot, probably ZFX's best rape scene ever (IMO, anyway), and one of the most all-around successful films Rick has ever made. My original review is at my Homepage URL above, if you want to check it out.

Adult Video Universe has it on DVD for just $26.29 at the link here:

Happy 5th anniversary to all - I've lurked for a long time (maybe 3-4 years), and posted only occasionally, probably under some other long forgotten names as well as this one.

Anyway, I have a question I have a vague feeling has been asked before, but still thought I'd ask. Has Rick ever been involved in any films other than those from the ZFX/Shockwave family of companies? Also, have any of the great villains, especially our own Mad Dog and folk like Travis Lee appeared in films by other producers?

re: loose disc. Just got my copy of BSP from CD Universe and it was loose in the case (not to much damage). Must be an extra service from this company.

But it does work OK, Good Flick, Rick! Nice girls, nasty bondage & little bit of story.

Was surprised to see that it was made 4 years ago, what is Rick doing lately? (Besides chasing Video pirates, and putting out old ZFX viddies on DVD).

Man, the more things change, the more they stay the same. I checked those archives. We were debating the fear of Bush being elected as president, I was on about my usual tight-and-shiny fetish, NYCDOM was being thoughtful and reviewing, and Ralphus was reviewing. Could have been yesterday, except NYCDOM doesn't really post much any more.

Mad Dog made his first post pretty close to when I started. Who'da thunk we'd end up virtual paisanos?

One thing that was neat was reading our suggestions. It's nice to look back now and see how many of those suggestions Rick took and used in his later vids. This place had a pretty groovy clubhouse feel to it back then when Rick was posting so often. We need to get the rest of these pervy producers in here posting. They seem to have dried up lately.

I know my memory is bad, but I think I actually started on the board as "Superheroine_fan" before adopting my more appropriate Iago handle. I remember I followed the link here from Rick's site. Hey, maybe that's what we need. Rick, can you put the link back on your site? I might never have found it otherwise. Hell, for all the business we've thrown them with reviews and recommenations some of these video companies and superheroine sites should link here as well.

Hmmm...so I was just reviewing, but not being thoughtful? (clenching fist) WHY, I OUGHTA...

Pretty neat going back and reading the archives, huh? We had some real interesting discussions back then. I think it was worth it saving all our old history. Some great stuff in the archives; a fun read.

I agree, the producers should post here more often. I've written the Rickmeister about it, but he says he doesn't have nearly the time he used to have. He said that producing bondage movies has become more complex in that now he has many more formats to cover (VHS, DVD and streaming) plus he answers about 10-20 emails a day and has another 100 to sort through before he can even get anything done each day.

Still, if he answers all those e-mails, IMO it shouldn't take that much longer to answer a few questions on the board a few times a month or so. Just think of it as a public e-mail, in which he's answering questions from his real fans, the ones who support him financially by buying his tapes, the people who check in here everyday just to see if there's any news about ZFX. I know he reads the board, and there are sometimes questions and suggestions directed toward him that often go unanswered. That's kind of a shame. I do what I can to help, but I'm not Rick.

I hope a few negative comments about Dan haven't scared him away. He's one of the brightest, most interesting posters we've ever had, and his background and experiences working with all those lovely models, as well as his views about bondage and what makes a good video are always fascinating to read. I'm still wanting to hear some details about his working with Liz Tyler. It would be a great loss to the board if he decided not to come back.

For a while, Gerard Titsman was posting here, then he just up and disappeared. I was hoping to hear more about his work, since he's relatively unknown here in the States and must have a huge treasure trove of stuff that most of us haven't seen. I may have to contact him again.

I wrote PD of Insex a few times, inviting him to the board, but I never got a direct reply from him. Is there anyone else we'd like to see here? Who else qualifies?

Mothbrad~Mad Dog should answer this one for himself. As for the others, I really don't know myself, however it's always struck me curious that Ralphus has never mentioned his most famous role (probably since it didn't have any B&D and was mainstream).

Without giving away his role, so he can put up a sound bite if he wants...and/or, maybe you'd be able to guess. I have to "X" a few words to keep the mystery, but if I remember it right, his scene went something like:

XXXXX XXXXXX doompety doo

I've got another puzzle for you

If you are wise you'll listen to me

What do you get from a glut of TV

A pain in the neck and an IQ of three

AvF: You numb nut! (cool phrase, huh? Got it from Rick) You're obviously mistaking me for a damn Oompa Loompa! Leave it to you to know all the lyrics to that song; you probably bought the soundtrack and play it to yourself at bedtime every night.

Once again, my name is Ralphus, I'm a sadistic dwarf who, along with my master Sardu, delight in torturing naked girls on stage (and in our real lives). Our life story was chronicled in the award-winning, feel-good documentary Bloodsucking Freaks (now available on DVD). Seeing how there's very little work for guys who stand 3 foot 7 and sport an ungodly afro and a goatee (Hey, I yam who I yam), most of my work is spent sitting in front of a computer cranking out bondage reviews and correcting AvF's spelling mistakes on this board (and there are always many). When I'm bored, I hide in lockers with my blow gun and prey on unsuspecting ballet dancers so that I can capture them and...well, go watch the movie, you'll see.

Ralphus~See, Hail's got it! Sounds like a good title to me!

I was a little puzzled by your response of denial. But then it came to me....yesterday was April Fools Day. You big fool, you ;-) I get it now.

You can only hide that big fro so much underneath the hats that you guys wore. Plus I've seen cutting room floor footage where you get carried away and run across the screen carrying a bunch of rope right after Veruka goes down the shoot (sad sight...hat goes flying off, fro pushed back by the wind).

Puzzled at first, but still disapointed. I was waiting for your other famous line,"You've been a very bad boy today."

Maybe you can put up the sound bit of that instead :-)

Oh, and also, your Master, Sardu von Sardu has been absent along time also. What's up with that? Can't agree on which ballarinas?

Paulus~ Did you ever look into the waterbondage site that you told us about. I'd be interested in getting a video or two if they have 'em but whenever I click on the "store" I get a denied message. Wondering if the store is for members only.

It's a little-known fact that Ralphus also stood in for Ricki Ricardo's son on "I Love Lucy" during the "babaloo" bongo sessions at the club. Of course, Ralphus was already full-grown at the time, but they hid that and his blackness with camera angles and black-and-white photography. A trend-breaker from the very beginning, our Ralphus.

So tell us, Ralphus, what famous folks have you met over the years?

Ralphus have you EVER handed out a good solid A? I just got BSP and I think it deserves one. I was trying to figure how even your best review don't do better than an A- and then I just happened across your posting a few days ago.

Dwarf eh? It's all clear now. It's that Napoleanic complex thingy ain't it.

Seriously, man with that encyclopedic knowledge of bondage lore, what makes your A list? Has this ever been asked? Too lazy to search the archives, but I wonder what Ralphus' ATFs are?

what the heck. Just for fun, I'll post mine.

10. Whips and Chains - Bruce Seven 9. Curse of Merlin's Castle - London/HOM 8. Dresden Diary 3&4 - Bizaare (Damn that Aja is hot) 7. BrutalViolence.com - (its my damned list and I can lump a bunch of web movies in at #7 if I wanna) 6. Bitter Sweet Persuasion - ZFX (yep Rick, you made the top 10) 5. Vicious Attack - Exquisite (Directed by Star Chandler) 4. Spy Trap - Bizaare video 3. She Screams - London/HOM 2. Bondage Classics 10(or 11 not sure, the one with Lonnie Andrews and Marti Kaye .
Drumroll please .

1. Curiosity Excited the Kat - Cmon folks, we all know it HAD to be a cole/whitman production. I don't think I will ever get tired of this flick.

Okay, to wrap this up and put the rumors to rest, here's the scoop on me, from me.

Rumor: I was an Oompa Loompa in "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and attempted to tie up Veruca Salt.

Fact: Not true at all, and really too bad, because that whiny bitch needed to be gagged BIG TIME!

Rumor: I've been in other films than "Bloodsucking Freaks".

Fact: Yes, I have. I was an Ewok in "Return of the Jedi", Tattoo's stand-in on "Fantasy Island", and of course, starred in lots of pornos. I'm not short in all departments (nudge nudge, wink wink).

Rumor: I was the stand-in for Little Ricky on "I Love Lucy".

Fact: That is true. They even made me shave my beard and trim my fro. But the contract I signed ended up screwing me out of all future residuals. Otherwise I'd be rich today and could be making my own bondage films, instead of reviewing other people's work. Damn that Lucy.

Any further questions about my career will have to wait until my new book "All Hail King Ralphus" is released. You'll have to fork over $24.99 at Barnes & Noble if you want to know anything more.

Okay, back on to the business of this board.

NYC Lurker: Yes, I've bought several tapes from Video Mayhem, mostly Japanese bondage vids, which they specialize in. Among my favorites are the torture-heavy "Eccentric Psycho Cinema" and "Attackers" series and the rape-themed "Clover's Night" films. Our friend Damien reviewed a few of the Video Mayhem vids at the link above.

Larry, who runs Video Mayhem, reads this board and admits he lurks when he should be posting, but we'll cut him a break if he comes here and gives us some of his recommendations. He has quite a few excellent movies at his site. Really depends on what you like.

Gonzo: Good list, except for the inclusion of Spy Trap, which I thought was very ordinary except for Sara St. James' hot wax sequence. Curiosity Excited the Kat...boy, it's been a long time since I've seen that one. Here's the link to a page I made a few years ago that featured my favorite scene from that movie.

Curiosity Excited the Kat

Have I ever handed out a solid A? If you check my review sites, I gave solid A's to both Ballista 2 and South of the Border 4. And before I started reviewing ZFX online, I would have given the same grade to The Cheerleaders of Perilous U., and probably Squealer, Gangland, Gangland 2, Future Shock, and The Reporter 2: Gangstarr. That's just off the top of my head. Some of these tend to blur in my mind after several years, so I can't be sure, but they are all definitely up there.

As far as all-time favorite bondage vids, that's too hard to include everything right now. I'm sure there would be LOTS of Japanese tapes in there, some of which I've found at Video Mayhem.

That's enough for now. Somebody else needs to post.

Saturday, April 3rd 2004 - 03:50:38 PM

Name: Iago

Ralphus and Gonzo: You know, despite being active here and a bondage fan forever I have a horribly limited exposure to bondage flicks. I missed the cutoff for getting my hands on a lot of the good stuff from the late 70's and early 80's by a few years. This is especially sad for me because that was the era of disco pants and lycra catsuits, and I missed the vids. By the time I was able to get my hairy paws (shaddap, Mad Dog) on these things the field was pretty lame, and very expensive for my limited budgets. I bought a few B&D Pleasures videos like Educating Laurel 2 (with the yummy Laurel Canyon), but found them ultimately consentual and boring. The non-consentual stuff was just about lame villains who wanted to tie up and menace girls. That type of vid never popped with me. If I have a beautiful girl in front of me tieing her up may be a part of the fun I want to have, but it will always come back to sexual appeal, sexual tension, and sexual/sensual release. Otherwise, what would I care who was tied up? It wouldn't matter at all that they were pretty girls if there was no sexual interest.

I also tried some Bizzarre Video releases like Disciplined Daughter and Abducted for Pleasure. For the time, Abducted for Pleasure worked, but it still had limited value to me.

Discovering ZFX was a whole new world for me. Finally, someone who used differing themes in their movies, who had psychological and sexual undercurrents, and who had (simulated) sex and rape in their vids. It was great, and an order of magnitude better than anything else out there. Rick has a lot of my money from vid purchases over the years, but I don't begrudge it to him. He's come closest to giving me what I want to see. I am not good enough with a camera, lighting, and probably a gozillion other things that would go into making my own flick, so I have to reply on the creativity of others to give me my thrills.

The trouble is that Rick has really slowed down in recent years, devoting his energies to other avenues than new releases. For a while it looked like Forbidden Video might want to stept into that void, but now it looks like they've abandoned that road for more mainstream stuff. Can't say I blame them. Our niche can't be all that big. But it leaves me in a bad place. I got used to having a new ZFX flick out there to entertain me every few months (Rick used to release about three at a time every three to six months). Where now can I find my evil scientists, bondage rape and psychological torture? And hey, if they want to indulge my skintight clothing jones, so much the better, but if they are out there I have not identified them. Anyone?

So, anyway, aside from Kidnapped and Trained, by occasional contributor Gerard Titsman, most of my top ten (bondage) flicks would be ZFX. Because toruture for torture's sake just doesn't do it for me. Think of it as the video equivalent of reading the articles in Playboy, maybe. But I want more than a torture vid.

To those interested in japanese video it might be helpful to describe the different series available at Video Mayhem. The Clovers Night,Slave Hunter, Bizarre Life and Scandal series are similar in content. These generally begin with the young woman going about her daily activities while being stalked. Her capture, binding, gagging and subsequent rape are hightlights from these series.

Torture videos would include storyline bondage/rape torture in the Attacker series or for those who do wish to see torture without storylines we have the SVNV and SRV series.

We carry the 2 hour rape series (about 10 different segments) Waru, Riza,Yamu,Muge. The Shark series (over 200 videos) has storylines with rape and many cases bondage. Boxcover pics are at site in the Shark, Attackers (including the new series from Attacker ATI,SVNV,SRV,GM and many of the Cinemagic videos.

Some suggestions would be Japanese Thriller#43,58. Collector:Kidnap Story,Collector Private Sessions. Attackers#39,60. Abnormal Privacy#13. Far as Clovers Night, Slave Hunters they all excellent. Always willing to try to point customers in right direction whenever they have questions.

Video Mayhem-checked out the site. But I have some questions and observations. First, the prices do seem very good. It's about $12 for a DVD with rape and/or bondage, and they seem to have many of them under the "shark" heading, which is the one I checked out.

How long are these videos? I didn't see any listing for running times?

There don't seem to be any screen caps or videos besides one shot of the box art for each vid. Not even a listing of who is in the vid, in case we develop favorites.

Some of the models on the box art look very nice, and the box art would indicate that penetration is not pixelated. Is this the case?

Speaking of ball gag's, I usually prefer a good cleave gag but I do have an appreciation for ball gags also. My favorite is a variation of the usual ball gag in which the cord is attached to one side of the ball (instead of the usual type that have it go through the middle). I've only seen it used a few times however but really love how it makes the girls look (with basically the whole ball in their mouths).

Anyone think of any good video's where this type of gag is used? Any recomendations (Watch it!, careful now ;-)?

Lucy...you got some splaining to do (Hey that could be a great line for your next flick!). $24.95 at Barnes and Nobel for "All Hail King Ralphus". Hey Ralphus, don't we Gimpers get a discount?

Now that you've mentioned the book, I think I've seen the preview of the cover for it. Are you still going with the white Elvis jacket and glasses for it's cover?

I can't wait to read it! I was hoping to ask about your other part in "Basket Case". That was you as, what I like to call, the living afterbirth wasn't it?

Also, it's too bad you are still in denial as there was just a multi-million dollar law suit won by P.E.T.O.L. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Oompa Lumpa's ;-)


P.S. Everyone take that pained look off your faces from trying to remember...Nobody spoke of ball gag's recently. Just seeing if you're paying attention :-)

Regarding mossaic blurring: Softcore sex videos such as japanese thrillers,Nikkatsu,and the Rape Panic series do not have censoring.

The hardcore videos have mossaic blurring but.. Shark, Attackers and many of the videos released in last few years have much lighter censoring. Pubic hair,butthole etc are clearly shown. Results of climaxing is clearly shown.

Video times vary but nearly all are between 60 and 90 minutes in length. We do not list actress name as for example the Shark series. Over 200 video and the same actress never appear twice. Most customers pay close attention to the makers.

Attackers are the makers for the RB,ATI and Shark series. The JB series By Attackers is listed as Attackers category.

  We have nearly 30 categories making up 2000+ videos. New titles are added each Monday-usually 7 total.

  True boxcovers only for about a 3rd of all titles but descriptions for all titles are available. Plus we do respond to questions from our customers.

The Cheerleaders of Perilous U? Did it have a different name at one time? Is that the one where she's tied to the bike with the dildo seat and has to pedal or she gets shocked? I f#cking love that one! That idea's right out of those old bondage paperback books that I also love. They also had one story where a female (probable a schoolgirl or cheerleader, the lead in most of those paperbacks!) was on the same type of bike but had heat lamps all around her and a drainage pipe from the mens room pointed right at her face. So everytime there was a flush....  Yeah baby!! Hail

I've been thinking about sampling the "South of the Border" series, and noticed that no one has reviewed the first two chapters. Anyone have opinions on how they compare to #3-7?

Hail: That scene you described where the chick has to pedal to avoid being shocked is actually The Violation of Viki Fixx, which was the sequel to Cheerleaders. Penelope Pace is the cheerleader getting the treatment from Brian Dunhill and Chandra Sweet, revenge from Chandra after Penelope set her up for a weekend of torture in the first movie.

Thanagar: The South of the Border series is the longest and arguably the best series ever from ZFX. All seven of them are now out on DVD, and I recommend them all. The first two came out back before I started reviewing ZFX online, and they have a different look and feel from the chapters that followed, since they were shot in different places. They also have totally different casts. But these first two also have two of my favorite ZFX performers, with the gorgeous, big-titted Monica Moore as the primary victim and Dunhill doing his usual great work as the lead bad guy. Put the two of them together and you've got top flight entertainment, and these are both excellent showcases for their talent.

If you can afford it, buy all seven. Lots of highlights in every chapter. Too bad ZFX won't bundle them together, like the studios do with the Star Wars or Rocky movies. Would this be a great country if you could walk into a Best Buy and take home a South of the Border Special Edition boxed set?

AvF, point taken about the $12. I'll have to look through the VM site some more.

I watched Bittersweet Persuasion tonight. No full review, but a few observations:

I like the brighter lighting in this film. It shows the girls off better, and also lets us see more of what is going on. In some vids I find that dark light plus dark whip=hard-to-see-action. Speaking of whips...

I'm not a huge whipping fan myself. The whipping scenes in this movie went a long time. Great fun for you whipping fans out there.

Suzi was cute, and Kimberly was, as always, absolutely killer. I also liked her acting. That moment where she realizes she's about to get gagged and pleads with the villain, saying she won't say anything...yep, with that gag in she didn't say anything. Funny.

The retail shop left me a little empty, like the shop itself. If only one person was working the floor (like Suzi apparently was) you wouldn't leave it to go upstairs and hang out in the office. I also got the odd feeling that the backroom of the lingerie store was like ten times the size of the commercial part, which seemed really odd to me, especially since it was all empty halls and office, not storage space. When Kim finally arrived she didn't even seem to notice that the shop was deserted, the till unattended, etc. Odd.

I liked the difference in garb for the ladies. The manager type in her more slinky clothes with the lace bra showing through her top made sense. Kim in jeans as the regular employee also made sense. If I read it wrong and she was a customer it still made sense.

The rape scenes seemed kinda flat to me. Not much action there. Personally, I would have thought the guy would nail Suzi while she was strapped to that ab-roller-looking metal frame. Booyah.

My overall take on the movie would be a B. It has good lighting, sets and girls. The main villain does a good job. His henchman gets by. Some of the situations don't quite work for me but there is a lot more "background noise," meaning fine detail, than I am used to with ZFX and I liked it. A worthwhile watch for ZFX fans.

Side note: My DVD was not loose in the box, but the shrink wrap was slit across the top like maybe the package had been removed and reinserted at some point. No harm done, but a little odd.

Iago: Shrink wrap? That's interesting. My copy (from CD Universe) arrived without a shred of shrink wrap on it. I thought that a little odd but couldn't remember if the previous DVDs were shrink-wrapped or not. Makes one wonder if the staff at CD Universe is helping themselves to the product. $27 is a nice price, but I'd rather purchase directly from ZFX to avoid such nonsense. Hopefully it will be an option again soon.

I have a question on SOB5. I have the SOB6 DVD that shows the scene from SOB5 where Lisa is restrained on a cot while she's choked (the "snuff" scene according to Ralphus' review). Is this scene nice and long and what are some more details on how the preceding rape scene involving her occurs?

MAV, I really liked Lisa in SOB5. And the cot scene, if memory serves, was actually several scenes throughout the movie. In any event, you won't go far wrong with a SOB movie.

Just think. We have to wait several months for a new release from ZFX, but in Japan they probably produce hundreds of movies a year just like these, with pretty Asian women trussed up in rope, tortured mercilessly and used sexually in every way possible. They know how to tie their women in Japan, and they spare no expense in coming up with ingenious ways to use and abuse them. They only make the best bondage movies in the world! The best thing is they don't have to worry about holding back because they're scared of puritanical assholes like John Ashcroft. Who wants to go with me on a vacation to Japan, so we can load up on videos like these?

Hi Ralphus,

Far as Bittersweet Persuation goes I thought it was very good! My only complaints were exactly the same as few people on board.

More bondage/sex would have been good and bondage/sex scene when Suzi was tied for electrocution. Other then that I thought it was very good flick.

I wont come on your site to be critical of people like Rick,other producers,sellers etc. But generic conversations like you had few days ago about setup,capture rape or no rape etc conversations I will join in in the future.

Your's and Brians page or the only boards Ive ever posted too. Both excellent sites,interesting and useful. (except for Brians Anything Goes page:)

One last thought:  Kim's body-wow!! I would abuse her for the camera for free :) Feel guilty about accepting money for that role :)

Iago. If you haven't had the pleasure of ordering from Video Mayhem you are in for a real treat. You also have to put up with the electronic sensoring that comes with most movies from japan. Besides that I think the japanese make the most erotic bdsm tapes in the world. they offer a bunch of different great series. If you ordered 200 movies you wouldnt even put a dent in some of the good stuff there.

I highly recommend the GI series found in the japanese bondage section. I feel this is one of the better series up there. It has some decent plots as well as some good bondage and S&m. The shark series are very good with the later volumes being 90 minutes or more. the attackers series also known as Jb are the sister tapes to the sharks. the bomb and bokan tapes are also good. The black shower series feature good bukkake. there is a series called bad judge what were good but on thwe shorter side maybe 45 minutes each. The srv and the svnv series are some good hard s&m. I predict you will be ordering tapes every week!

Exceptional choices at Video Mayhem: These are a few titles that I think are really good that I've ordered in the past. Again, I want to stress that I've only seen a very small percentage of what's offered. Larry at VM has seen them all (lucky bastard), but he'll pay. Oh yes. You can't watch that many bondage pornos and make it to the end unscathed. At this rate he will probably be blind within a few years.

Okay, the Top Twelve, and I know I'm leaving out some good ones for sure:

Collector Private Sessions
OL Imprisonment
Attackers #1
Attackers #68
Clover's Night #8
Clover's Night #10
Secretary Rope Discipline
Eccentric Psycho Cinema #1
Eccentric Psycho Cinema #2
Rape of Village Women
FA # 562
FA # 17

IMO, you can't go wrong with that list. All those titles had exceptional scenes or in some cases, the entire movie was outstanding. What you could do is go though the entire site, pick out a list of titles that sound good for you and then ask Larry. But hurry, because even now his palms are getting hairy and things are starting to look fuzzy to him. There isn't much time left.

Insex...on dvd : that's what I just found at my local smut store. 2 Insex sessions (titled "Soiled" and "Tests 11") are now available on dvd, and I rented both of them : problem is, as i expected, these are only dvd conversion of the web files, with obvious pixelization here and there. Who's behind that? Pd himself (not willing to release "real" dvds but decided to make money just the same ? hard to believe) or some masked bootlegger? If PD doesn't say hello after that post, he never will...

Rod: Nadine Jansen, is that who she is? I checked out her website, hoping to find more about her. Apparently she's a huge breast model from Germany who has had her...um...assets showcased on Danni Ashe's site. I'm not one who normally goes gag-ga over enormous breasts, but this girl is quite pretty and someone came up with the bright idea to tie her up and take some pictures. Too bad there's no video. I could think of quite a few ways to torture those big funbags.

Interesting news about those Insex DVDs. From what you described, I would bet it wasn't authorized by PD. Apparently it's fairly easy to convert mpegs to DVD or video, and you can download everything you need for free on the web. Porn bootleggers are everywhere (just ask Rick) and it should be interesting to see how he responds. I don't read Insex's forum section so please keep us informed on this board.

By the way II, do you know if the (Insex-influenced ?) people at Hogtied / WaterBondage / FuckingMachines / WiredPussy - whose work, judging from the vidcaps in the update section, looks amazing - produce dvds, or are they only doing it the "Pd" way ?

I have four bondage pics of the same huge-breasted chick, and I think she most resembles the Nadine Jansen on her website: same long brown hair, parted in the middle, and of course, the same voluminous chest. Plus there's one other thing. I snooped through her "My Diary" section of the site and she mentions that she got a lot of worried emails concerning her painful look in the shibaru set. So she linked to this picture as proof that she was having fun enjoying the shooting.


It's clearly the same girl as in the picture I posted yesterday, wearing the same top and the same ropes around her tits. It's Nadine. Now somebody needs to get her in touch with Rick Masters ASAP.

Hello Ralphus. We do NOT produce DVD's, Videos or anything other than online membership to Insex, which contains the entire archive or material dating back through 2000.

It is a constant struggle to create intriguing, evolving bondage images and now more narrative videos. If you can help point us in the direction of individuals or groups who are pirating our material, either on line or through VHS, DVD, or other means, it would be much appreciated.

Please note that for our new trailer on our main page requires the latest version of flash. It's worth a look.

Ralphus - re : Nadine : I confess that I was only 97% sure (it could have been a similarly gifted friend of hers). Isn't she lovely ? All she needs now is to get the Gérard T. treatment.

PD : for your information, the scene took place in France. A funny thing happened after I told the guy at the video store that I suspected the "Tests 11" and "Soiled" dvds were bootlegs (I mentioned your website, the streaming videos etc..) : not only did he give my money back (!!), but he also promised that he would remove them from the shelves and would tell his boss ! I think that he might be sincere, because this is the first time I come upon a bootleged video there. That said, I found another copy of "TESTS 11" yesterday in another video store. Since I'm not a Fed, I don't think that the video store guy would tell me more anyway :-) If you want to know more, feel free to ask.

Incidentally, keep up the superlative work and pardon my english. And, if I dare ask again, what do you think of the Hogtied.com stuff ? I find more and more similarities in style (which is NOT a bad thing), and I'd be interested in reading your feeling about it. Just like you, and to the best of my knowledge, they don't sell DVDs (somebody please tell me I'm wrong). Maybe YOU are the man behind Hogtied, after all :-)

I just purchased some videos from Video Mayhem. Great prompt service. I got the tapes just three days after I ordered them. I have only had time to watch one of the tapes so far (Attackers #12). It was a lot better than most of the American bondage tapes I have seen (aside from ZFX that is). It didn't even matter that I couldn't understand what was being said. I am eagerly awaiting watching the other tapes, especially EPC #2, which Ralphus has recommended.

Also, was interested to see if Violet does work for other sites that you may know of. Or, if she may have a website of her own? I think she is so cute (dispite the hair colors....not really into that myself)! Wouldn't mind having her do a custom if she may be so inclined. ~~~~~~~~

Rod: I was unable to locate that ZFX Collection 1 DVD. Do you have the exact URL from Fivestardvd.com?

Great link on those Alpha Blue DVDs. I have to admit, they did a great job on the box art, even if it is just repackaging old material. The entire collection of Sadistic Seventies can be found at the link above. What was especially intriguing to me is that they have even more RDF footage in "Tit Torture Enforcers", like they did in "Suspended Sluts". Might be worth a check, because RDF had a reputation for being especially brutal and their stuff is hard to find today.

I do recall getting a tape from Alpha Blue a while back called "History of Rape Volume 3" that did indeed feature bondage with penetration, so some of it is still out there, obviously. I just think that producers today would shy away from attempting to film new stuff like that in today's (Republican) political climate. Back in the 70s, our freedoms hadn't yet been taken away, and we got to see all that good stuff, even if it was in an inferior and inconvenient format (flickering images projected on a screen on noisy 8 MM movie projectors). So this DVD repackaging is a definite good thing, even if they still don't have any audio.

Question for the board: Do you think those old 1970s loops hold up as well today as they did back when they were the only option? I'm talking stuff like the HOM bondage classics or the early Cole/Whitman loops that had no sound, and had to reply only on the strength of their erotic images of suffering women for their appeal? I go back and forth on this one, but I have to admit very little can top my collection of Erotic Perversion loops from Whitman for sheer entertainment. They were so harsh, and seemingly so real, that they still ring my bell big time even now.

Hollywood, The subject of Insex releasing videos has been discussed very often in the insex forums. I really don't think you will see them release any vids anytime soon and very possibly never.

I have never met Pd nor have I ever talked to him but I get the impression that insex is a vision of his going back many years to display his bdsm artistry in an interactive online manner. Insex has put alot into their website and going into the distribution business might even distract them their website. I know this because I was one of the members bitching and moaning that their movies weren't available on dvd or vhs. It frustrated me that the only way to see this good content was to watch it on the computer with a bunch of digital breakup. Their real players movies play in 225 kbps and the quality is pretty good and the stuff looks ok on a tv screen but when I saw a Dan hawke dvd of liz the quality just blew away anything that you could download from insex.

I am now no longer frustrated at the quality of movies I download from insex as they made a very important change to their website around october 2003. You can now download their movies in mp4 format. The mp4 movies play anywhere from 360-450 kbps and let me tell you the picture is surperb even in full screen mode. You still get some digital breakup but let me tell you the movies look great and do insex justice in displaying their great content. I no longer care if they release movies because I get download all I want by being a member.

Hollywood, as far as membership is concerned insex is worth possible double or triple what they charge because of the amount of content you get and now with the way they deliver it to the members. They update twice a week with new articles that have movies anywhere from 20 minutes to almost 2 hours. At an average you get well over an hour a week for movie downloads.

I know alot of us gimpers out here are plot orientated people  and we are still waiting for the someone to produce a zfx type plot with insex action but the effort alone makes insex one of the best sites on the net to belong to. If you are a bdsm fan it is a must. 

As far as violet I dont know if she modeled for anyone else. I think she is more of a top now then a sub now and she has the very tough job of controlling the chat during live shows at Insex. Piracy is one of Pd's hot buttons so lets help him out if we see his stuff pirated anywhere so he can take care of it.  The same goes for dan Hawke and Rick.

Ralphus, I don't think it's a fair comparison between the old 8mm and today's releases. They may have lacked features, but the old loops were produced (largely) in the seventies, when rules were a lot more lax. The new stuff looks better, but generally suffers constraints.

I do agree though that having a limited medium made the producers work harder to compensate. Not having the luxury of sound forced them to make the imagery better to compensate. I'm reminded of Rick's latest video, how much brighter than previous releases it was. Even the clothing was brighter. Rick doesn't usually strike me as a lazy film maker, don't get me wrong, but he really seemed to have a magnifying glass on for the details in this last movie. That sort of thing we could do with more, I think.

Rod: Thanks for the link. I went back and looked at the three tapes that comprise this new ZFX DVD. Let's see. The collection contains what was formerly called "Z F/X #1" (before the name was shortened to ZFX), plus Bondage Imagination Unlimited and Sorority Bondage Hazing. I took footage from all three of those tapes when I made my personal highlights compilations, so obviously I felt there was some good stuff there. I only included a 3-minute electric shock segment from that first one, so I don't recall much more about it.

BIU had some plastic wrap bondage/whipping with a dark-haired girl, followed by some electric shock torture while she was bound and all wired up in a bathtub full of water. Also, Drew Phonix (Rick's future wife) suffers effectively through some shock treatment and then is tied and forced to drink water through a tube led from the kitchen faucet that is taped into her mouth.

My favorite of those three was SBH, which features more hot footage from Drew, as well as Rick putting long-haired blonde Heather Lee through some rough duct-tape bondage on her bed, finishing with a thorough hogtie. And one of my real early ZFX favorites, the huggably cute Sierra Stuart, is tied, tormented and sexually penetrated while tied to her bed, then later tied on a tiolet, of all things, and sexually assaulted with a toilet brush.

Some nice, imaginative ideas here, not nearly as refined as Rick's later work but they had a raw freshness that made them stand out from anything else I had seen from other bondage companies. For less than 28 bucks including shipping, there is definitely enough good footage to justify a purchase. In fact, I just ordered it myself. I was never happy with my original copies, so I'll update my highlights vids with a crisp new DVD print.

Hi again

I have seen all three of those videos. Only one really left an impression. Sorority Bondage Hazing is a good video. It actually has some decent fantasy rape for early ZFX.

You get a burglar scene and also a lot of girl on girl domination. Its a very good early effort. And to me it is very good because it has the kind of things I enjoy.

The two women are known to those who have been watching ZXF from the beginning. Niether are as hot as the ones in Bittersweet, but are pleasing enough to be enjoyable.

The other two vids are tame when compared to today's torture and whipping scenes. If you don't like that hard stuff and want something more vanillia, then these are the vids for you.

If the price is right, I would check it out.

Linkey: Nice link! Thanks for sharing. I'm not familar with that website or video. If you can share more info on the site and the video, that would be great.

I'm sure my strong fetish for Asian women.....breast bondage and forced lactation has SOMETHING to do with finding those pics soooooo enjoyable! :)

Your question asking preferences between 70's and current bondage videos compelled me to reply since I am a passionate and devoted fan of this entertainment.

For me, it's not even a contest. It's the older stuff..by FAR.

Now granted, because my first expsoure to it was by way of seeing Avon roughies, Cole-Whitman pics other works from now legendary studios, I MAY be biased because of my first impression. But, I doubt it.

To me, the women were sexier, the settings more erotic, dark or dangerous and everything seems much more intense and had real sexuality to it. I can look at any of these pics or vids from that time and I still get excited as a teenager and still go 'wow' looking the girls, how they react to the ropes and everything they are enduring and the whole overall feel and attitude of the film.

Maybe because many were silent, the girls HAD to be silent-film actors and show more facial agony, squirm more, gyrate more etc..BUT I'll tell ya..overall I still think they are sexier, more erotic, more fun and exciting to look at that today's offerings.

It was ZFX that brought me here years ago and it was only ZFX that caught my interest for current bondage/domination videos. For me ZFX stands out and the scenes I looked at with Victoria Vixen in Night Prowler, Lois Payne in the early days and Penelope in Hitchiker, Phantacide Peepshow and Guilty 1 & 2 in the later days won me over as a ZFX'r for good.

Why? Beacuse Victoria and Penelope, as two examples, were sexy on film and struggled sexy as well as endured pain sensually. They were HOT on film, you could feel it never mind see it.

For the most part today, I find many of the girls, plots and action stiff (no pun intended). Overstuffed breasts with silcone is not my thing and neither are girls who send a vibe that they are not turned on by the situation they are in and are really into it by really feeling the pain and fear and excitement.

That's why I find the Japanese vids so erotic. They seem to have the passion, excitement and intensity many lack today.

And, the Alpha Blue site is like a ideal dream for fellas like me. Give me those grainy, silent 70's anytime!

Peace to all my fellow Gimpers.

i have been surfing through asian bondage/SM sites now for many years, for me this more then a pass time it's my passion.

Mr. Retailer~Thanks for the info. Too bad about the feeling on Insex's forum on the videos. I agree that if someone would bridge the two to have Insex's extremes and ZFX's plotlines it would be major.

The problem with consentual stuff is that all this IS fantasy for us. If we know it's not against her will, no matter how good it may look, it just gets lost after awhile.

It's like an old "Twilight Zone" episode, where some 40's ganster dies and ends up in similar stomping grounds. Except now, whenever he gambles he wins, gets away with crimes, gets all the women he wants, drinks and smokes all he wants.

At the end he screams out of frustration (of no challenges...in our case, the fantasy being destroyed by consentuality) "If this is Heaven, let me go to the other place!" A voice answers, "What makes you think this is Heaven?". Take away the fantasy and a great part of the appeal has been lost.

I can't picture Violet as a dom...she's just too cute.

Not being a member of Insex, Think you might care to throw a line out at the Insex forum for Violet? See what her thoughts would be on a custom.


Zfx'r~I'm not really into it myself but reading your interest of forced lactating, I remember there was a video out along time ago (about the same era as all the RFD stuff) called "Cows". I never saw it but read it was about some guy with a rare stomach disorder that required him to have a special diet. You guessed it...Anyway, the plot was that he would kidnap women, tie them up, keep 'em, then when is dietary needs required...

Your post reminded me and wanted to see if you or anyone else had seen it.

Just so no one forgets that the immediate future of the kind of entertainment we like is in serious jeopardy, I came across some interesting news on one of the Yahoo groups I subscribe to. Gary Roberts, arguably the greatest contemporary BDSM artist working today (and formerly a regular poster to this forum) is apparently having the same problems distributing his artwork on his own website that Rick Masters has had with selling videos on the ZFX site.

A reader was complaining that Gary hasn't updated his site for a while. Here, in part, is the reply from another poster.

"can i write in Master Gary's defense that He has been having a really difficult time because of the problems caused by the credit card and online charging companies who have either demanded restrictions on unsuitable content (my stories caused a lot of this apparently) or just wouldn't deal with His site at all

as He is a working artist, He doesn't have a back catalogue of art under His sole copyright control to keep regular updates going...so if He isn't drawing, it isn't available to download.  can you imagine what its like being under pressure and not even knowing if your site will be removed or you can't have subscriptions because of the current legal/moral climate in the US?  if He hasn't much enthusiasm to draw at the moment, it isn't really surprising"

This is Ralphus again. Yup, it's not just the video producers who are having to deal with censorship from the government, they are even cracking down on artwork, too. An artist cannot even sell his own artwork because MasterCard/VISA and the banks that deal with them are colluding and refusing to deal with him, no doubt under pressure from the government. It's only getting worse. And we can do something to stop it, come November. Remember that when casting your vote. (stepping off soapbox)

Question for the board: Do you think those old 1970s loops hold up as well today as they did back when they were the only option? I'm talking stuff like the HOM bondage classics or the early Cole/Whitman loops that had no sound, and had to reply only on the strength of their erotic images of suffering women for their appeal? I go back and forth on this one, but I have to admit very little can top my collection of Erotic Perversion loops from Whitman for sheer entertainment. They were so harsh, and seemingly so real, that they still ring my bell big time even now.

The ole classic HOM and EP loops are still at the top of my list as well, so yeah, I think they hold up. I've yet to see bdsm motion pictures I regard higher. Not everything they did was gold, but what they did well they did really well. I still wonder where the best quality versions of these can be had, that's the only downside: while the content's really good, the actual visual quality of VHS transfers is a bit lacking.

There was a lot of crap produced in the 70s too, tho. Lot of TAO was crap, except for one I remember liking a lot. Also, HOM wasn't free to do whatever they wanted in the US. The EP tapes were produced for overseas distribution only, they couldn't release films with actual penetration or needles here. They did brief fake penetration a few times in their US market films.

Short of the odd cartoon set or manip, domination scenes or stories with forced lactation are sadly rare.

Ralphus, about your Gary Roberts post, I'm torn. As anyone that has followed any of the links I've posted here or checked out any of my Yahoo sites you can see I'm about as deviant as the rest of you here (maybe more so because I tend to like the real violent stuff) but I have no problem with credit card companies choosing who they deal with for any reason. It's their right. They don't *have* to do business with anyone they don't want too.

The material we enjoy here is pretty fucked up. It's not the kind of thing we sit down and talk about with our Mothers and little kids. To me, Gary Roberts is a freaking GOD when it comes to "rape art" but I totally understand if Visa doesn't want anything to do with him. What if he was selling snuff art or kiddie porn art? Would you still be angry at Visa? "It's just art. No ones getting hurt by it", right? I guess it depends on where you draw the line.

The government isn't telling Gary he can't draw, a company is deciding not to do business with him. Now if the company is being forced by the government to do so then that's a little different. Could Visa resist and then be taken to court and spend some serious cash defending their desision to make money from "rape-art"? That would go over real well with the nightly news and the shareholders!! I'm just enjoying it while it lasts. And if it's all gone tommorow my life really doesn't change too much. Half the fun with this stuff is that it's forbidden. If it goes mainstream we'll all lose interest! FWIW.  Hail

Hail: Interesting comments, thanks for posting. I do understand where you are coming from, especially since you are the king of starting Yahoo clubs that you know are going to be deleted as soon as someone with Yahoo catches wind as to the content. Enjoy it while it lasts, like you stated. Well, that's one way of thinking. But in my book, that's being too accepting of others applying censorship.

Your club primarily deals with rape fantasy. Would you have a problem if that became illegal, manipulating pics like you do? It's a form of free expression, like what Roberts does or what Rick does. And clearly, it's not for everyone, but some of us do enjoy it. You do your manips for fun, but some artists like Gary and Rick produce it and profit from it.

Yes, I suppose VISA can decide to do business with whoever they want, if they so choose. The thing is, in the past, they seemed to have no problem accepting profits from adult companies. Now, years later, all of a sudden they are refusing to work with these same people? You think they suddenly decided to develop a conscience and turn away millions and billions of dollars they used to accept? All of them, in mass? Rick had the banks cut him off in January; now it's April and he still can't find anyone to work with him. Doesn't that seem a bit strange to you?

To me, it's pretty obvious. The government is applying pressure and they figure the easiest way to attack porn is to make it more difficult for them to get legitimate business ties. That's one of their strategies; to lean on the banks and prevent them from having any business with companies they deem "objectionable". This Bruce Taylor guy at the National Obscenity Enforcement Unit hates porn and has been quoted as saying that all porn is obscenity and everyone should be prosecuted for it. And he's in charge; he runs the show.

If this continues, who will be next? Eventually, it could even be you, my friend. Manipulated pictures of naked chicks with bruises on their tits? Porn. Obscenity. Prosecution.

Don't laugh. If we accept a little censorship, eventually there will be more, and where will it end? I don't accept our freedoms slowly being eroded, and neither should any American who values his right to free speech.

Linky and Black Rubber Mask: Since linky first posted that link this week for that Asian Bondage/Forced Lactation Video, I have been surfing around trying to see where I can purchase it. I would think there HAS to be video sellers who carry this line! They are stunning and reconfirm what I wrote earlier this week: when it comes to today's material, in my humble opinion, no one beats the intensity, eroticism and pure enjoyment of the Japanese videos.

Here are some discoveries so far: The maker of that video is the legendary Cinemagic LTD. Co; the brand is Cinemagic NOIR and the series is called "Milking Slave, Splash Out Bondage" It is the fourth of a series and its # CN-434 in their catalog.

I hope Video Mayhem gets it in stock or someone else who visits this site and retails because I would certainly purchase it and I believe there are enough Gimpers like me who would like to see stunningly beautiful, swollen breasted Japanese beauties get roped, squirm and milk!

I've found these links where you can buy earlier installments of the series as well as many other videos that simply have STUNNING models and fantastic rope work.

RALPHUS: I know you've posted in the past how you enjoy Japanese bondage a lot..well check out the video covers ont hese sites and look at the women...WOW.

ZFX'r and Linky Great links! More mamm trouble than I've seen at one time in ages. The box cover is one of the stronger bondage images I've er, come across, in some time. Large and lovely tits, roped as they should be, one hand busy with the milking chore, the other hand under her chin (on throat would have been just slightly better - the box cover suggests some throat bondage may be awaiting the asian lovelies). Would love to see a video with a medium size, forced lactation dairy operation running.

ZFX'ryes, I definitely appreciate tidy Shibari ropework. My own ropework, while effective in getting breasts and other appendages secured, never seems to want to stay quite as orderly as the work of the Japanese masters. I suspect I should be tying the cinch a little tighter. ;)

Hi all!

I'm SORRY I've been gone for so long now without pitching in, but I saw a few threads lately that I thought I could say something on so here I am. First, though, I wanted to give a belated congrats to the Gimp board on the five year anniversary. That's really great news to hear, and to see the board still going strong after so long really lets you know that there is something special about this place. Keep up the good work, Ralphus.

To start, anybody who's been reading the board here pretty regularly over the past 6-7 months knows how I feel about the current admin. and what they're trying to with adult sites and videos, etc., so I won't go into any of that now, but I do have to agree with Ralphus on this one. No, we don't have a voice on who Visa/MC decides to do business with, and yes, it should be up to them to decide on who they associate themselves with. These are both facts that, while they really suck, are nonetheless true.

But that doesn't mean we have to so accepting of everything that's been going on lately, and to begin thinking "Well, it was good while it lasted..." is, in effect, shrugging your shoulders and turning a blind eye to the situation. And that WILL lead, as Ralphus brought up, to the censorship bulldozers coming out in full force--and once they do, it's not going to be easy to make them stop. Once that floodgate is open to them, they're going to try and plow as much as they can in the shortest time possible because they feel they're way behind schedule.

But that begs the question... indeed, where will they stop? We already now they're starting off now by trying to target things they've labeled as "obscene"--which, to them, we now know means basically simple nudity, nevermind the extreme bondage or "forced" themes--but once they've made some headway there, if they do, against companies like Extreme Associates and the rest (and don't you believe they don't have ZFX on their radar screen there somewhere), then what do they target next? How about films like Irreversible or Salo? What about the classic Bloodsucking Freaks? What about TV shows like OZ? All of these mentioned titles have strong sexual imagery and strong violence--often intermingled together--so why, if it was ok to get rid of the other stuff, would it not be ok to start going after films and shows like these eventually? They might have to try and blur the lines a little bit, sure, but I'm also pretty sure that in a world where spin is almost as important as merit, that trying to blur lines is not really all that big of a deal to some grubby, little Washington nobody trying to make a name for himself by trying to "fight the good fight".

So it's not a pretty picture, but we still don't have to accept it. I feel terrible about what's going on with ZFX and now with what I read about what's going on at Robert's site, but I'd feel a lot worse if either they or I were deemed criminals and had charges brought against us, for either producing or simply viewing these videos or artwork. Now that's something to think about--especially since you have a group of bozos in Washington right now actually trying to accomplish that. Ahhh... let freedom ring.

In similar news, and this might be of interest to Gary Robert's if someone here can pass along info to him somehow, the story site RPP, which shut down a while back due to the whole Visa/MC issue I just spoke about before, is back online again and they still ARE a membership site. So, obviously, they must have discovered some kind of solution to the problem they were having about Visa/MC letting them process their credit cards for customer memberships. Again, if Robert's is having the same problem now that RPP had before then maybe he should drop them a line to see what they did; maybe he too can get himself back online and accepting memberships before too long.

To BaronOrca--Video Mayhem, not fishy at all. They are a dependable site--I've ordered from them myself--and you can't go wrong with giving them a try. They have lots of titles, great prices and, if I remember correctly, I think they delivered pretty quickly, as well... like maybe a week or so? If I had any complaint at all about them, it would be (also, if I'm remembering correctly), that the tapes were packaged loose in the box--one of my pet peeves, loose tapes in a big box with little or no packing material. But again, I'm not 100% sure it was them...I've ordered from so many different places that it might actually be another place that did that but then again, now that I think about it, I have had a few different places do that to me. So, take it for what it's worth... it's a little extra info for you and if it helps it helps, but overall VM gets a thumbs-up from me.

Also, great pic, Ralphus... that's fromm a BaronOrca video, you say? Do you have a membership site or a site you sell videos from, Orca? If so, I'd like to give it look-sie sometime. Again, great pic.

Anyway, that's all from me for now, but I'll try and be back again soon--congrats again on the five years, Gimp (and Ralphus). Take care all!

Thanks to fellow GIMPERS for contributing ideas to where I might be able to locate the Japanese Cinemagic Noir vids..hopefully others who collect will pitch in too.

On another topic, while looking at so many spreadeagle shots on those vid covers, I got to thinking: What are the most intense/spreadeagle moments in the ZFX catalog. Well, there are many great ones, of course, but these are my top three that for me are the BEST:

Number 3: Penelope Pace in Guilty 2--technically not a spread eagle but if you have not seen the positions sweet Penelope is placed in this video--including having her legs tied to her wrists and placed behind her head so that her puss and ass are up in the air waiting for entry--well, then, see it!

Number 2: Victoria Vixen in Scene of the Crime--sweet Victoria, dressed in red lace lingerie, garters and bra is ambushed in her apartment and roughly stripped, roped and groped. The scene to see: Victoria, spreadeagled as wide as possible in bed as her legs are roped by bed-posts and her legs strain to deal with it. Seeing that and her large breasts heaving and her puss so vulnerable and ready is amazing.

Number 1: the Queen of intensity at ZFX, Penelope Pace in Phantacide Peepshow. All you need to do is look at the bx cover and see why: Penelope is spread as wide as possible on the floor of an office, angles and thighs roped to filing cabinets and her puss ready for action. In addition, her large breasts swell as they are roped too and all she wears in high heal red shoes. Wow. There was no better spreadeagle contortionist than Penelope.

Honorable mentions: Alison Parish in Guinea Pigs 2 and Traci O Connor in The Van.

Hello ALL. I was just wondering about a few of the new Insex videos that are shown on line. A couple of them seemed to have some actual plot and acting, as well as what appeared to be out and out rape. I have been a member 2 times in the past and I am thinking of another month membership ... if the rapes are in these videos. Can anyone give me a "heads up" on this subject. I would greatly appreciate the favor.

ZFX'r: Definitely agree with your comments about Penelope Pace spread wide in Phantacide Peepshow. In quite a few videos, if Penelope was a victim, you could count on her legs spread wide and her breasts tied tight.

Some here would like to hear from Gerard Titsman again. I sure would. Perhaps he is answering some of our questions on his website. He has posted how he first met Anita, one of the lovelies that appears in several of his videos. You may want to check the link above, which includes pictures of Anita and has Gerard's comments about first laying his eyes on her.

I have been absent from this board for quite some time. One of the most important is outlined in a message I posted to my own discussion forum which can be found via the members page of my site. I hope that any GIMPers who are members of the site will feel free to post on my own discussion board.

Further I hope GIMPers who have never given my site a try will consider giving the site a trial. In addition to online pix and rm files, members get a 25% discount on all of my videos. Crazy dutch angles aside, I am quite proud of almost all of the videos I have produced. Clearly my aesthetic is somewhat different from those who count themselves core ZFX fans. Still I think most folks into this material will find at least some of my videos very interesting.

I offer a preview video/dvd for sale through my distributor, http://www.boundanddelivered.com at a very reasonable price. It is a good way to take a look through my video catalog and see what catches your eye.

Anyway, the following post was just made to my own message board. Thanx all you GIMPers who have supported me in the past. I may still post here from time to time as well!

Hello folks:

I used to post from time to time at the following message board, http://books.dreambook.com/zfxetc/main.html

However, I have decided that to the extent I am going to post, it would be better to post here, on my own message board. I have been pretty disappointed in the number of posts to this board to be honest.

I had hoped to get the type of discussion started here that you would find at the above discussion board and also the discussion boards found at pd's fine site, http://www.insex.com

However this level of discourse has not occurred.

I would love for there to be more discussion here. I cannot promise to post with frequency, but if there is any significant level of conversation I will post more often. I hope to get feedback from my fans and hope they will begin to talk amoung themselves about my products.

Of course I am looking for feedback on my photos and videos. Constructive criticism is always welcome. Lord knows I got much of that over at the GIMP board. And to some degree that criticism has played some role in how I shoot moving forward (although I have tons of stuff in the can to wade through yet).

However I think I have pretty much seen the gamut of critique available on the GIMP board. Most comments there tend to be repeats of earlier comments. I may still post there from time to time, to be sure, but am far more interested in hearing from those who support me directly.

There are adjustments I'm willing to make to what I shoot and the way I operate. However I am more interested in answering criticisms voiced by those who are most interested in my work. Interested enough to be members of my site and purchasers of my videos.

I started my career with a particular esthetic, and I don't see any compelling reason to depart in any big way from that aesthetic. However I am open to making some adjustments.

However I won't limit discussion to only my material. Feel free to post any observations concerning bondage related material you wish. I draw the line at outright advertisements. Those will be deleted. However an occasional URL of interest to members is more than welcome.

In addition, discussion of other producers, those active and those of historic interest are welcome here. Outright rants with no thought or critical value will not be tolerated. This is not an invitation to knock other producers. However any thoughtful insight is always welcome.

So I hope you will begin to be more active here in this forum. For the most part this will be the vehicle for me to communicate with my fans; both those of my images and those of my videos.

Please help me to make this a valuable addition to my website.

Dan: Good to finally hear from you again, even if it is to announce that you're cutting back on your posting here. Frankly, I think that's a mistake, but if you feel more comfortable only dealing with comments from people who already support you, I can understand that. I think we're a little more diverse here, since our readers seem to like a great variety of bondage entertainment, and your videos are a certainly part of that mix. Don't be discouraged by any of the criticism you have read on this board, since they are all heartfelt opinions from fans and NOT designed in any way as a personal slam against you. To a man, we all have great respect for you and the work you've produced over the years, as well as the contributions you've added to this forum. So we hope you won't be stranger around here.

BTW, I want to put in my two cents worth regarding Dan's member site. I've been a member a few times and it is well worth the money. There are an incredibly huge number of high-res pictures and movie files, and there's plenty to see there, even though I never visited or even knew about the message board. I guess I was too busy downloading all those images of Liz Tyler with clothespins in her tits. Priorities, man!

Thanx for the welcome "back" so to speak.

I have never minded criticism from the GIMPers and will still post here from time to time. I just am hoping to engage the folks who are most interested in my material (obviously, my members are shelling out the $$$ so they must be fans, no?) to generate a little give and take. We'll see how that goes.

As to the critiques here on the GIMP board, I think I know those pretty well by now! ;) (Those damn "Dutch" angles!)

I still read the GIMP pretty regularly and I still will delurk from time to time.

Greetings to All,

Well, once again I am on the ropes with the ZFX site. This is on my site today, to save me re typing it:

Once Again the plug is getting pulled on streaming. Here's the Deal. As of 04/19/04 Verotel has implemented a new system. Under this system, you have to pay them $19.95, which is a recurring charge, for the "privilege" of then buying streaming time. I think this is a total rip-off, and as you know, ZFX stands for quality bondage products and treating our customers fairly. I don't think this new system does that. So, with a heavy heart, I have made the decision to pull the plug. I apologize for the inconvenience, and yes, frustration the situation over the past several months have caused so many. I hate giving up on things, but I just cant support people paying $19.95 to Verotel just to have the right to purchase streaming. Anyone who has purchased time, I will leave the Streams up until May 15th at which time they will be removed, so make sure you use up all your time before then. If this situation changes again (at this point it seems to change on a daily basis), I will let you know. Thank you for your die-hard support through these difficult times.

I dont think Ive ever felt more pessimistic about the future. While some seem to think VISA MASTERCARD is just exercising there purgative, etc., I beg to differ. They are part of the US banking system, which is part of the federal reserve which is part of the government. They have been brow beat by private censorship groups and DOJ officials into censoring people, without even understanding WHAT they are censoring.  Take a look at these pages and youll see what I'm up against:





Jan LaRUe and the Concerned Women For America, a pro censorship group, are apparently at the source of this problem and these people clearly have the Governments ear. I am FAR from below the radar thanks to former Dallas police officer and full-time idiot bootlegger Gary Ragsdale and his retard sidekick, Tom Gartman. Take a look around this site, it is downright chilling. Be aware that there is a ton of erroneous information here as well. They have this sort of movie of the week idea about the adult industry, that it is rife with stereo types about Mafia this and that, Mr. Big etc...Its kinda funny but then their are actually people that are believing it, so that makes it a lot less funny. Its a matter of public record who owns ZFX products (um, gee Jan Larue, I think filing a Copyright with the US government would qualify as acknowledging ownership). Also, to my knowledge, the Ragdales were not convicted of selling ZFX tapes, but rather 3 titles from the Brutally Raped series from Skala in the Netherlands, thus showing ZFX to the jury and having those titles acquitted is actually very helpful to me, thanks Mr. Ashcrapt! They are free on appeal BTW....Dont be surprised if you see me doing the perp walk this summer too....

Anyway, there are several articles about CWFA, Morality in Media, etc., pressure on Visa MC on this site as well. If you want to do something to counteract these idiots, email VISA MC and say you dont want your right to view adult material taken away.

That said, ZFX will continue on because VISA MASTERCARD is VERY much still in the ZFX business, and the porn business. We have a highly redundant, diversified business model, so crusty old Jan Larue and her supposed 500,000 prudish members (they actually have less than 20,000) best get busy writing..you got A LOT of letters to write=)

As for me, I'm not sure what to do next. Its hard to see a future in ZFX , but then I kinda felt that when Bush took office, thus the slowing to a crawl of production. Its hard to justify investing in new shoots that may never get released, though I still have a few shows in the can, so you can expect at least some new ZFX probably late this year early next. I'm mulling over a couple ideas, one is forming an adult consumer association to begin putting pressure on the government from the other side. It wont cost members a dime, just a bit of time to write letters and stuff. The only voices being heard are that of the censors, we need to change that and soon or it WILL be a case of it was good while it lasted.

As far as buying from ZFX direct, its not going to happen in the foreseeable future. Buy from someone reputable, dont ask me where cause I cant single anyone out. Look around, use a bit of search fu, youll find it.

Dan: You probably got other things to worry about than whether someone here thinks you use too much Dutch Angle:P Hey, at least you still have a merchant account..least until I tell CWFA about YOU..( of course I jest;)

Greetings Again!

One other thing, dam near forgot...HAPPY 5th anniversary GIMPers! Thank you to the many who post here, who have hung in for the long haul and who have given so much information. I meant to thank Iago and Wicked Mister, both of which have contributed massive info and moral support, and Dan, who is the encyclopedia Britannica of Bondage porn through the ages. Your contributions have been a pleasure and helpful in many ways. I suppose I should thank Mad Dog, who administrated the site admirably when he wasnt playing with Kelly McKays soiled panties or burning our retinas out with bright yellow text;)

A special thanks to Ralphus for his administration of the site, and his often eloquent defense of the 1st amendment. Thank YOU sir, your efforts are appreciated much more than you probably know. Last but not least, thanks be to the GIMP himself, where ever he is, the founder of this site, hope your well my brother, where ever you are.

One more thing, to those die hard Bush suporters who actually like porn as well....VOTE FOR KERRY for the love of GOD! Anyone who thinks Bush is more competent to fight the war on terror needs a serious head shrinking, you done been BRAINWashED or your a rich fucker in luv with tax cuts that your kids kids will be paying for. Or maybe you work for Exxon. Either way I say to you and Emperor Bush..where the FUCK is BIN LADEN? Remember, the guy would actually attacked us? Hes still sending us love letters...I wish we had 135,000 GIs in Afghanistan instead of Iraq, Bin Laden would be (should be) in the bag already. Thats what happens when you got a stupid, greedy fuck for President. Its a mad grab for oil in Iraq, a big shit sandwich and we are all gonna have to take a bite in one way or another. If your heading over there, or have relatives fighting over there (I do), keep your head down and your powder dry soldiers, and come back alive and in one piece.

If you're not registered to vote, GET REGISTERED and VOTE!!!!!Remember, its always darkest before the dawn, and I think dawns coming in, oh, bout 7 mos or so....keep the faith.

Now, I'm going to begin work on my new movie, 1001 ways to skullfuk John Ashcrapt;)

Rick PS Ok, that was like 5 more things...

Hi folks

Congrats to all on the recent anniversary.

I had been semi-active in the online-community a while back under various aliases (I posted the CRUSEX video triple review here for example), but had to cut down on the 'hobby' due to work-related circumstances. Well, my financial situation is better now.

(I have other vids to review if people want)

Mostly I'm happy to see that a few of the old sites/groups are still working, while others have moved, many have disappeared (not surprisingly) and I'm still trying to track a few down

1) Did "Rhinoboy" (black and white rape themed comix) ever resurface?

2a) Is the "Dutch n Go" (aka "Touch n Go") ("Total Rape and Abuse" videos)

2b) Other than the "Tourist/Hotel" vids, did Vixxxen do any other rape vids?

3) Is Mudshark's mailing list still out there?

4) Caitlin's Basement web site wasn't being updated last time I checked. Did it go away totally?

5) Rowal.com was just getting started when I left, and I see they're still around. Anyone use them? How's the service/quality?

6) Still looking for good source for a some quality uncut old classics on DVD "Jailhouse Girls" (w/Ginger Lynn), "Expensive Tastes," "Dirty Western" etc. Anyone know of a good source?

Oooh, clipped posting ...

2a) Did "Touch n Go" ever produce any more vids after #9?

2c)Has anyone else picked up the ball and made similar stuff in English/American?

7) When finances got tight, I had to drop my subscription to Gary Robert's site. Paying for one update a month was too much even for Gary's teriffic stuff. How is he doing these days with updates?

Rick, sounds like we're due for another "The Van"-type movie with the censorship theme. LaRue gone evil lesbo sort of thing. I could see that new girl Payne (?) doing a pretty good job of the old Tabitha Jordan role. Maybe set it in a farm this time. A subsidized farm, natch ;-)

A few questions and comments for Rick:

Regarding streaming, do you think Verotel's decision was made because you are an adult company and might be part of the whole Grand Plan against porn companies? $19.99 every month when there was no charge before? That seems pretty extreme. Surely Verotel isn't the only game in town, right? Streaming sites are all over, so who do the others go with?

One interesting point I came across from reading the sites you linked is that in the Ragsdale case, they deliberately made the case a Federal one and thus were allowed to select a jury that included people from the rural areas outside of Dallas. This resulted in a jury pool that included people who didn't even watch mainstream TV, because they felt it was too sexual! Good God! That's part of the devious way these prosecutors go about stacking the deck in order to get a conviction. For instance, in the upcoming Extreme Associates case, they stayed away from liberal LA, where the company resides, and set them up by having them mail a package to a city with a really conservative background in Pennsylvania (Isn't that the same state with all the Amish people, BTW?)

They have to know that's the best way to win, is to load the jury with Bible-Belters and little old grandmothers, people who would be shocked at anything sexual, if they won't even watch frickin' television because they think it's too dirty! I have a sister who is like that, real religious, very strict about even letting her grown kids watch R-rated movies, and of course has probably never seen a real adult movie in her life. Yeah, she's really my sister...we're like two sides of the same coin. Anyway, she's a great person, but I would cringe if I were the one on trial and she was in the jury box. I'd be going to jail for sure.

Here's one of the scarier passages in one of those links:

If the DOJ ignores that precedent by not prosecuting anything but the worst of the worst material, warned Taylor, it will set a de facto standard "that the only thing that's obscene is bondage and torture." And that ultimately hurts communities by further desensitizing them and allowing the more common adult obscenity to keep "causing sex crimes, polluting the neighborhoods and ruining the Web."

"I think the public is entitled to be protected from all obscenity," he said.

Gawd, give me a fucking break! Did we really ask to be protected from whatever you stuffed shirts deem to be "obscene"? And that line about bondage and torture being the only thing that may be considered obscene doesn't bode well for ZFX, but it's obviously an easy target to go after. ZFX is rough stuff, especially to the casual observer, but geez, it's still all faked. Realistic-looking, but still humanely filmed. The girls aren't really being hurt, they are all consenting to this stuff, and there's not even any real penetration. Except for the nudity, I don't think there's really much difference between a ZFX flick and any other horror movie. Look at the outttakes on the DVDs. The actresses are laughing and cutting up between takes, just like in real movies. These are just horror films with nudity and simulated sex, when you get right down to it. If they are obscene, so is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Friday the 13th.

That concept about the adult consumer association sounds like an excellent idea. Count me in 100%. Like you said, only one side is being heard, and they are counting on people just sitting idly by while they do their "cleansing". But millions of people voluntarily view porn, and we still have our right to view what we want in the privacy of our own homes. Even though the government would prefer to dictate otherwise.

Thanks for posting, and continue to fight the good fight. We're all behind you.

After reading Rick's comments and the state of affairs in this country, things look bleak for him, zfx, and the future. Although he has a couple of flicks in the can to be released next year, it kind of sounds like thats going to be it. He is smart enough to make a business decision where its silly to invest in new productions when you do not know if you can sell it let alone get your money back. Too bad because he is the best in the business, I'm really depressed.

I've finally got a token site up and am waiting for them to put up the rest of the sets I sent them. Shade Paine is in the first set that's up. I've read that she'll soon be modeling again after a long bout of illnesses.

I haven't had time to look up the links Rick provided, but things are getting worse as far as censorship is concerned. I would not have thought that possible four years ago because it's hard to start taking things away from people once they've had them. Considering that there hasn't been a corresponding rise in sex related crimes with the increased availability of adult fare on the internet and in video stores (the crimes are half what they were two decades ago according to the Dept of Justice's own statistics), I would not have thought that anybody could sensibly argue that porn causes more crimes. Who said sense has to matter in these things?

The Verotel issue isn't censorship, but scummy business practices. The company bought the intellectual rights to a streaming process and is threatening to take legal action against anybody using streaming. That one area is about corporate greed, not censorship. It's a case that has yet to be fought in court, but even Larry Flynt caved in rather than fight it. Other adult producers are fighting it.

Hopefully, the next election will see a change in administrations. I'm not going to get as rabid as Rick over the whole thing because I don't think most people see the issue of censorship as being the strongest reason to vote for a particular candidate. There are people that like what George W. Bush is doing for the country even if I don't happen to be one of them. Those people will vote for Bush regardless (or maybe because) of the increased censorship that is ongoing. Those people aren't going to have the votes swayed. Others are just as strong in their convictions to vote for Kerry and they're going to vote for him no matter what. It's the undecideds that matter in this election because the country is fairly evenly split amongst voters who already know who they're going to vote for. The last election was decided by one state over a few thousand votes. The nationwide popular vote differed by 150,000, less than a fraction of a percent difference. Ralph Nader had a few million votes and, if the Constitution wasn't written the way it is, could have thrown his votes to whoever he wanted and have been the most powerful person in the nation for a while. That's one of the reasons why there is an Electoral College versus a popular vote (the other is to give less populous states more of a vote than they would have just with the popular vote).

If the closeness of the last election taught anybody anything, it was that every vote counts. The censorship that we're already starting to see is the tip of the iceberg for an administration that's just getting started. 9/11 derailed plans for an earlier assault on porn. A second term means America approves the administration's overall agenda and things are only going to get worse. The people both candidates want to reach are the ones who are either undecided or those that don't typically vote. There are enough in either category to decide the next election.

I think we need to be careful where fingers are being pointed. Ashcroft and his radical belief that he must save us from ourselves is a real thing, but I perceive other issues happening here. They might be related to the economy.

The economy just started adding jobs in the past month or two after years of either losing ground or breaking even. During that time, however, corporate profits have soared, mostly due to increased efficiency (aka making people due the work formerly assigned to several people). This has been very evident in banking and electronic commerce. A number of banks have posted record profits in recent years. A big way they do that is by maximizing profitability. I used to work for an online vendor. Not a pr0n vendor, just a regular old sell-the-stuff vendor. Visa would routinely reject 1 in 15-20 of our transactions just because we were an internet company (which ranks at the bottom of their "reliable merchants" list below mail order) and Visa used that as a form of security verification. When I asked about it I was told that Internet companies had over a 20% dispute rate, which made the banks unhappy because it cost them money to settle those disputes. I later learned from a friend who was in the porno shipping biz that for adult prono disputescould run as high as 50%.

Visa/MC responded to this at first by jacking the rates for online vendors. Lord alone knows what rate they were charging Rick. It may have just gotten to the point where it was costing Visa more to run down disputes on adult material (particularly subscription sites) than they were making. So to maximize profitability they started dumping those sites. Just because the adult entertainment biz generates a lot of cash doesn't mean Visa is making a lot off of it.

It turns out that lots of people dispute adult services for lots of reasons. The wife finds out, they accidentally put it on the company card, junior used the parents' card to go get some smut, etc.

So far as the streaming company goes, that sounds like a blatant cash grab. They may know they have adult merchants over a barrel because of the recent moves by Visa/MC and are just applying the squeeze. Certainly I haven't heard of any radical right move to force submission of the adult industry through charging them lots of fees from their merchants.

Just a thought. They may be related atsome level, but the censorship and banking/streamingissues sound different to me.

Rick: First off, thanks for two huge, informative posts to the board, even if the news was more on the gloom and doom side.  I know what I'm thinking and what everyone else is probably thinking.  Is this the end for ZFX? 

Earlier I asked about Verotel.  I know nothing about streaming, but are they the only option?  Surely other companies that deal with streaming are surviving, so who are they dealing with to avoid charging their customers this fee?

Getting back to ZFX, are you saying you expect to be arrested for making your movies eventually?  The way I look at it, what you put out is exactly the stuff they are just itching to prosecute, even if your stuff is legal and SHOULD BE LEGAL even after a trial, but you never know about what a jury might think.

Without the extra income of streaming, and without shooting more shows, what's going to happen to you and your company?  Are you giving up?  Is this adult consumer association what you plan to do instead?  How can there be any money in that?  Can you keep on with things the way they are now? 

I guess those are the big unanswered questions, and you may not know right now, but is it possible for you to make one more follow-up post to the board to give people a dash of hope, false or not?

Greetings to all,

First off, all is not lost. I'm a filmmaker, that's what I do. ZFX may be done after the next 3 releases, but I really cant say for sure. Obviously the catalog would be out there ad infinitetum. A lot is riding on this next election and what happens this summer. Either way, I will continue to produce films, whether they will be bondage per se I cant say for sure. I may go into something more in the horror dept. Its all about perception, I've been publicly maligned so much that ZFX is a bit of a hot potato. If you call it horror instead of bondage suddenly people don't mind it so much. Stupid, but that's the way it works.

I think people are just plain scared, from billing companies to producers, and I cant say I blame them, but I also think we need to fight back by not allowing them to get their way. What they want is us to be gone. Sometimes the best way to breach an obstacle is to go around it, so don't think I'm giving up, but possibly morphing. A big part of the reason I'm not producing is the whole DVD thing, not just the political climate. VHS just doesn't sell and I need to get the catalog on DVD to stay alive financially. In a year I'll be done and will probably pick up a camera again. Will I be arrested? Maybe, that's really hard to say. I was half joking about that, but I guess I don't want people to be shocked if that happens.

I think the government is deathly afraid of losing and if they step on me they probably know they are going to have a really hard time. ZFX is designed as a legal landmine and they are afraid this bullshit obscenity law will go bye bye if they push it. I've got a lot of people in my corner including the models, many of whom have expressed a willingness to testify on my behalf. Its tuff to say I'm Mr. Abuser when the people who I've supposedly abused are on my side. If always been a stand up guy and have gone out of my way to help many people over the years and this is where that pays dividends. Simple fact is, I've never broken the law, but with obscenity you don't know for sure till you're convicted. Unfair, but that's the way its been since '73. I have a feeling the law may get overturned soon because these laws only stand till someone pushes things, and there are a lot of bigots pushing right now. What they really want ultimately is cable TV and WWF..just ridiculous stuff. Reasonable guys like Osterbaan (yeah he's semi reasonable compared to Taylor and Ascrapt) are trying to tell these censorship people in a nice way that if they rock the boat, they may just fall in the water, but they are so full of their own shit, I don't think they can help themselves. That's how the sodomy laws got struck down and the next to go will be obscene devices..ie  dildos. Lets hope obscenity will go too.

If Bush gets beat, I think the climate will change rapidly, but its really hard to say if that will happen. Kerry is too much like Bush to really represent the opposition, but I still feel he's not such a religious demagogue ass kisser, so I think he will be better. But a congressman has not been president since JFK, all the rest were governors, so the odds are against him. I also think the Pubs will cheat as much as possible, and that may be easy with their new voting electronic machines, made by a republican supporter company called diebold (they make atms too) that said he will "deliver votes" to Bush...that's some ominous shit. If Bush is back for 4 more years, I can say that ZFX will probably fade away, if he loses, maybe not. I cant say anything for sure, we will just have to wait to see how things unfold.

As far as the Adult Consumer Association, I don't intend to take people's money, and no I wont make a living off it. It doesn't take a dime to write an email or sign a petition and that's what its going to try to do..get us organized and vocal. To organize protests. I would love to get 100 people, hell 10 people, on the courthouse steps in PA when Rob Black goes to trial, IF he goes to trial. Maybe organize a protest outside CWFA headquarters....can you imagine it?!? Their fucking heads would explode. Their must be 5 or 6k people that go to the GIMP site. The biggest obstacle is apathy and fear and those are big obstacles. I need to get some electronic petition software, and set up a forum for it and stuff. I need to build a site as well, as you know I move at the speed of Methuselah, but hopefully I can get it up soon. The ACA has been born! Hopefully there isn't already an Adult Consumer Association:P Need to check on that....

Concerning streaming, I am negotiating with Verotel now, if they lift the 19.95 ticket club thing, it may be back. If they don't then probably not. Most people just don't want to pay 19.95 for nothing and I don't blame them. The site cant make money under their "ticketclub" shit so there's no point in keeping it going. BTW, that 19.95 goes straight to Verotel, not to me. I may at some point try to do a members site that has content through another provider, but I'm just burnt out fighting with these billing company types right now.

One more thing, the 3 shows in the can are really really good , so at least that's something to look forward to=) Next show will be a very Forced Entry type of show with Lisa Kinkaid that you are really going to like (I think). Soon as I start working on it I'll shoot Ralphus some caps, but that might be a while, probably this fall. Hang in there and keep the faith..and don't give up, the fat lady has cleared her throat, but she's not yet singing.

"It may have just gotten to the point where it was costing Visa more to run down disputes on adult material"

If that's what it was, I wouldn't have an issue because it's up to the company to decide what's profitable. Unless somebody can tell me that a person into ZFX is more likely to stiff the credit card company than a person into anal, we're dealing with censorship. Visa is specifically dropping people based on content and subject matter, not just adult sites.

Just to clear things up, the streaming patent thing has to do with Acacia. I confused that with whatever's going on with Verotel.


I doubt obscenity laws will be going away soon. Prosecution might under a different administration. Federal laws can only be removed by the Legislative branch. What elected official wants to open that can of worms when they know it's going to cost them votes--probably more than they can gain?

Hey all,

Just to clarify, our chargeback rate was a whopping .4 percent...the average is 1.5 percent for all internet (non face to face) businesses. This had nothing to do with anything other than good old fashioned censorship and fear. If I had a high chargeback rate I wouldnt be carping. On a brighter note, Verotel is going to let us go back to regular processing, so the site will be back in the near future=)

Federal laws can only be removed by the Legislative branch? Wrong answer! Courts over turn laws, not the Congress. Congress makes laws and repeals them, but courts have the final say over whether laws are Constitutional.

As far as Canada, cant make bondage movies there, its somewhat illegal, cant sell them there either. Canada has no first amendmant, you have to submit movies to a film board for each province, but bondage movies are never approved. If the movies not approved its illegal, least thats my understanding. Mexico...bleh, been there and from what I saw I understand why Mexicans are coming here in droves..it sucks there.

Have a nice weekend.

"Courts over turn laws, not the Congress."

Nope. Courts interpret laws against the US Constitution. I can't find the info on this that I discovered last year, but here's a link that clarifies the issue a little:


"Role of the Federal Courts

"Often called the "guardians of the Constitution," the federal courts exist to fairly and impartially interpret and apply the law, resolve disputes and, perhaps most importantly, to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. The courts do not "make" the laws. The Constitution delegates making, amending and repealing federal laws to the U.S. Congress."

There is a certain logic to only allowing the governmental body that creates laws to repeal them. The Supreme Court can declare a law unconstitutional, but that mostly seems to happen with new laws. Once a law has been around for three decades, such as obscenity laws, and has gone through various Supreme Court reviews over time, it's all but impossible for that court to invalidate decades of rulings. Much as I'd like to see a change in the laws, it's hard to imagine that it will ever happen.

Ummm...the Courts do overturn laws when they judge that a law passed by Congress is unconstitutional. Rick is correct in what he wrote if you read the whole thing and not take one line out of context.

Obscenity laws are an interesting category though. Being based on community standards, you know...which community? The GIMP board is a community! The Amish are a community! And that seems to be the tactic the DOJ is using, purposely prosecuting in places where they can get a jury from the most likely communities to vote their way. If they were prosecuting the Extreme Associate's case in the area where E.A. is from, E.A. would have a greater chance of winning.

So the case hasn't started yet (surprised to hear that). Hey, I know, let's all move to Pittsburgh, PA, and see if some of us can get on that jury!

"Courts do overturn laws when they judge that a law passed by Congress is unconstitutional."

Most laws don't even remotely touch on constitutional issues. The Supreme Court's authority touches on one very specialized area of the law. Obscenity laws have already been reviewed by the Supreme Court and not found unconstitutional on a number of occasions. From reading the court's opinions on COPA (the last effort to extend obscenity laws and community standards to the net), the justice's routinely quote those older rulings and mostly do not have a problem with them even today when applied to physical products.

It's unlikely that obscenity laws will go away. One can only hope that a less conservative administration won't be as obsessive about enforcing them.

RR, with all due respect, just do a google search - courts unconstitutional rulings - and you'll find tons of stuff. Granted, many laws that get challenged in the courts aren't ruled unconstitutional, but many are, or parts of them are. Your contention that "most laws don't even remotely touch on constitutional issues," I don't even know what to say to that. All laws must jive with the constition; laws that don't, don't last too long.

But yes, reading back, I acknowledge that congress repeals laws as well.

I doubt obscenity laws will go away either, but as community standards change, what's considered obscene changes. And court cases will determine where this moving target is, not congress. And like I said, the DOJ is cleverly filing their obscenity cases in favorable-to-their-point-of-view communities. So, who knows what's gonna happen.

Lets's Play....


We haven't played this for a while, so let's have a little fun. Above are images from four different classic bondage scenes. Your goal: be the first poster to correctly identify all four titles that the images were taken from. One of these is pretty easy, and I'll bet most of you will be able to name at least half of these right off the bat. But let's see who's the first to be able to name ALL FOUR.

Bragging rights go to the quickest poster, so get typing, you pervs.

Hi Ralphus and other Gimpers from a UK lurker.

How about:-

Blood Sucking Freaks

Outdoor Bondage Doublecross

Poor Cecily

Nightprowler 2

If right, can I claim 24 hours with Holly Weston, some rope, a whip and three tubes of KY Jelly?

"as community standards change, what's considered obscene changes."

It depends in which community. Overall, the country is considerably more liberal than it was thirty years ago, but there are still pockets of the country that aren't very different than they were thirty years ago. There are still people that consider Playboy obscene.

The real problem with the laws is that it is not illegal to possess obscene materials, only to distribute it. The person, in Podunk, Arkansas, can order a video his town considers obscene, but the only person who gets in trouble is the person that produced it even though the producer lives in a state that doesn't consider such work obscene. It's one thing for community standards to apply when a store tries to sell material in a community that finds such works illegal. It's another when somebody in that community solicits that material from another state.

Thanks for stepping out from beyond the lurking closet and NAILING this one! For your prize, you're welcome to nail Holly as well, as long as you tie her up and take plenty of pictures. And then send them to me, of course.

The first one, of course, is from maybe THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE, Blood Sucking Freaks, with the unfortunate victim giving her all as part of the weirdest damn live torture show ever put on stage. I would pay to see it myself if I wasn't already there performing.

The second is from one of the House of Milan bondage loops, Outdoor Bondage Doublecross, a loop I've never seen, except for in stills. The victim sure is awfully cute.

The third was from one of the all-time best torture scenes, Poor Cecily, which apparently is only available as a bootleg, damn it. I would love to acquire a sharper print of it, because its medieval torture sequences are among the best ever put on film.

And the fourth is one of my personal favorite performers, Holly Weston, getting tied up and raped in ZFX's Night Prowler 2, IMO the best volume of that particular series. We'll just have to see if SirP does her even better as his prize for being the Fastest GIMPer this time around.

All these stills are from the prolific bondage vidcapper Hank Hobbs, whose work can be purchased for just twenty bucks at his Yahoo group (linked in my Homepage URL above). The CD features over 4000 images (!) and is well worth the purchase. Hank also has started capping Rick's latest opus, Bitter Sweet Persuasion, and you can find stills from it at the club, too.

Assuming SirP doesn't come through with the Holly pictures, which of the four choices pictured above would everyone like to see posted here on the board? You have all day to vote, so post and pick your favorite. The winning series will be featured here for the next weeks. If no one votes, it will be nothing but flowers and butterflies instead.

Thanks, Ralphus, can't wait to collect my prize, the gorgeous Holly. I'll tie her up nice and tight, put her in a parcel and ship her back to you when I've finished with her!

Actually, my hands will be far too busy to take pics. But if you'd like to come along and take them, that's fine. I know you're small and won't get in the way!! (No offence meant!)

My vote for the pics certainly goes to her in Night Prowler 2. Will get me in the mood before the real thing. (Damn, if I had the real thing, I wouldn't need to get into the mood!)

Not seen Outdoor Bondage Doublecross?? You've missed a treat. Very mild by some standards but gets me very stiff each time I see it. The link shows where you can download it and 4 other HOM shorts for $9.99!

BTW, Ralphus, how did you like getting a blowjob from the decapitated schoolgirl in BSF? Man, that's one of the hottest scenes I've seen. I loved the idea of her being caned until her mouth let go of the rope thus releasing the guillotine blade! Brilliant stuff!

Cheers everyone, I'll let you know what I do to Holly!

RE: filming in Canada-
Once opon a time I used to go to this site called PSV:
Perfect Shots Video where the guy "Dr. Don"
did movies that used some of the best looking special
effects of women (occasionally nude) getting shot, stabbed,
etc. (okay, so I have some weird tastes... 8D)
The same models appeared over and over in many of his
However, since he lived in Canada, the athorities shut him
down completely. There wasn't even any simulated sex /
rape in his movies!

Best I could figure, he had fake 'bullet hits' glued on his
models. Then he would painstakingly paint out the hits digitally!
The model would react & he'd create the effect entirely in post-
unhiding the hits, and making the skin look like it was
rippling from impact.
It was like watching CSI with nudity.
That said:
Canada is simply not a good place for independent bondage / sex-horror at all.

Ralphus: With me being a special effects nut- I'd love to
know whatever you can tell me about the special effects
of Blood Sucking Freaks- Stuff you saw on set- and if you
dont feel like boring everyone else with it maybe could
you just email me. Thanx!

Dreambook was experiencing problems yesterday and was sporadically up and down and unable to accept posts, so apologies to everyone who attempted to get through and vote on which series you wanted me to run on the board. I know we lost at least two posts for sure. Looks like things are back up and running now, so I've extended the voting until tonight. If you voted before, go ahead and vote again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Xenonex: There were no special effects in Blood Sucking Freaks. We really squeezed that chick's head in a vise, cut off the ballerina's feet, used the one girl's ass for a dartboard, yanked out the tied-up blonde's teeth with a pair of pliers, and the scene where we decapitated the schoolgirl so I could use her severed head to give myself a blow job? All real, of course. They brought in a camera crew and shot documentary footage, then released it as a feature film. We were a bit worried that we might get sued because of all the girls we tortured and snuffed onscreen, but then everyone who saw it thought it was just a fictional film! Too funny!

And I'm really three foot seven, too. Thanks for your comments.

Well, if anything, at least I got your attention with the flowers and butterflies. To those of you who were angry or offended, all I can say is...Lighten up, guys! It's a joke! I think it's fucking hilarious, personally. If the worst thing that happened to you today is you failed to get your daily fix of naked babes in bondage from this board, well, you probably had a pretty good day :)

It was 2 in the morning, almost time for bed, it was 2 to 2 and hardly anybody had voted in two days, so I said what the heck? At least we'll get a few people noticing what's missing. This is what can happen if people fail to vote.

Also, this was not my intention, but it brings up an important lesson. If you'll allow me to briefly become Mr. Brady from "The Brady Bunch", what did we learn today, kids? If we fail to vote in the upcoming election, we may get stuck with four more years of George Bush and John Ashcroft and the loss of our freedoms. Not to mention no more ZFX, because Rick already said it's very likely ZFX will fade away if Bush gets reelected. Don't take what we have now for granted, because only your voting for Kerry will ensure that we will still have the freedom to enjoy entertainment like this. Let's make it real easy to remember.

Bush = flowers and butterflies
Kerry = naked girls in bondage

The choice is easy :) Don't forget to vote!

I'm w/ Baronorca on this. Those butterflies ... creeps me out.

Actually didn't vote for two reasons: (1) Sour grapes. Had 3 of the 4 right off the bat (thanks to the benefit of being a long-time beneficiary of the great Hank Hobbs and his work), but got stuck on Nightcrawler. Before I could figure it out, Mr. P slammed the door. Grrrr! (2) In truth, none of those caps would interest me that much. They are all rather easy to find, and I suspect most people have them already. I'd vote for caps that are harder to find, like Fantom Killer I and II or even Punishment of Anne, or some rare japanese stuff.

BTW, it's only my opinion, but other than the brief electro scene, Bloodsucking Freaks just never did much for me. I'd have thought it would be a brilliant masterpiece like Poor Cecily, but it's not even close. And that's no slam on Ralphus, who easily could have outshone any of those shirtless minions in Cecily.

Damnit the Republicans dont never raise taxes, they just spend money like drunken sailors and give it to their rich buddies in oil and munitions...Cant keep spending more than we takin in PK, ole GWB spending a billion a week in Iraq. Someone, sometime gonna be raising your taxes there bro, and you can thank your good buddies the Pubs for it cause they the ones digging the hole to China...which is a good idea cause they are the new economic superpower laffin while we flail around and give al our gold to them saudi pricks to by another gold toilet...

I agree with Rick, need to put more guys in Afganistan and get Bin laden...bush and his chickhawk buddies are a bunch of strategic cluster fucks...

BTW...I LUV BSF..that was the best movie ever! I was over at hanks site looking around and noticed another oldie I had almost forgotten that is just awsome..Night Train to Terror! If you havent seen it, man it just flat out rocks! I saw it years ago but those caps really brought back some fond mems..Anyone know who made it? Looked very mainstream holloywood and yet totally excellent BD with some intersting plotlines and the girls are hoter than hell. Wonder if its on DVD anywhere, that would be really sweet!I think they even showed some bush..pkccc should like that heh...me too but thats the only kinda bush I like, the kind tween a chicks legs!

Milo: Good to see you back participating on the board. Thanks for your comments. Regarding Poor Cecily vs. Bloodsucking Freaks, I will agree that the torture scenes in the former are among the very best ever put on film, with such cruel tortures as stretching on the rack, whipping, burned with hot irons, rape...some incredible stuff. However, all that occurs in a 13-15 minute segment halfway through the movie. If I remember correctly, everything before and after that is fast-forward material. Don't get me wrong, I love that part in the middle, and I'll be the first one to buy the movie if anyone ever releases it on DVD. But still, if I have to watch a whole movie, I'll take BSF anytime.

To me, that movie is so perverse, and so much fun, that it's hard to resist. Number one, it's just so damn funny! It's a horror film, but its tongue is so squarely in cheek with cheesy dialogue and low-budget special effects that you can't really take it too seriously. Number two, it takes the attitude that torturing naked girls is fun, and face it, it's loaded with all kinds of cool tortures. The aforementioned electric shock scene, the rack stretching segment, the scene where the girl with her head in a guillotine is caned, causing her to let go of the rope holding the blade...the list goes on and on. Not to mention one of the all time great lines of movie dialogue: "Put her to work in the toilets. Her mouth will make an interesting urinal." How can you not love a movie like that?

Tell you what. I've got it on DVD. I invite everyone on the board to come to my place tomorrow night and we'll check it out again. If we have time, we can make a pit stop to Canada to go pick up Frida. I'll buy the beer, you guys just have to supply a few nubile young babes for our own Theatre of the Macabre and we'll make a party out of it. And be sure to bring along plenty of rope.
