VIDEO  THE STRAP CHAIR

GALLERY: 880 / DATE: Feb 4 2016 / IMAGES: 66 / VIDEOS: 2

Many of us fantasize about being bound in extreme and overwhelming bondage. We imagine tight straps, bizarre hoods, and inescapable bondage rigs that are designed specifically to restrain and torment. This type of gear is not widely available and is usually made by small garage businesses or individuals whose passion drives them to create the bondage gear of their dreams. Such is the case with our friend BadNomadTwo (Fetlife) and his amazing strap chair. Nomad has been making heavy-duty bondage gear for years, and because he enjoys the experience of his own gear so much he finds himself playing solo most of the time.

In this video our friend MummyEd interviews Nomad as he demonstrates putting himself into his reclined strap chair. As both MummyEd and Nomad will tell you, self-bondage and extremely dangerous and they are NOT promoting self-bondage. However, BadNomadTwo likes to share his passion for bondage with others, so consider this a documentary and not a DIY video.

Nomad thinks his reclining chair has 40 or so straps, but frankly MummyEd and I think he lost count of the straps somewhere after 30. Nomad has carpentry, welding and leatherworking skills so it is easy for him to add another strap here or there, or build an entirely new rig from scratch. Although he owns a latex catsuit, his material of choice is leather.

This is the first of a number of videos featuring BadNomadTwo and the various pieces of gear he has built. We would like to thank him for sharing his passion with us. We totally get where he is coming from because we all dream about experiencing severe and overwhelming bondage gear and the buzz and highs we get from playing with it. Check out BadNomadTwo on Fetlife under the same name, and check out the rest of his gear in his profile photos. This guy is the real deal.

VIDEO  BOUNCER IS BACK!

GALLERY: 693 / DATE: Jan 29 2016 / IMAGES: 27 / VIDEOS: 1

Our friend Bouncer Pup is so cute. He is so polite and kinky at the same time! He won the 2013 Mister West Coast Rubber competition a few years ago and we were honored to have him around the Institute. In this video Bouncer Pup stops by for a minute and the next thing you know he's in a sleepsack and suspended from overhead by two additional pups. All in all, everyone had a good time and I think Bouncer was glad he stopped by. Arf!

VIDEO  FAST RUNNER

GALLERY: 875 / DATE: Jan 26 2016 / IMAGES: 20 / VIDEOS: 1

Our friends Mikey and Daddy Tony are sure missed here at the SeriousBondage Institute. They were both super fun to hang out with. A few years ago they moved to Seattle for a job opportunity and we have hardly seen them since. We uncovered this vintage video from 2008 in our archives, featuring Mikey and Daddy Tony and their UK friend Fast Runner (Recon). I don't think Fast Runner knew quite what to expect when he came to the Institute, but all in all he had a good time.

Check out Daddy Tony's popular weekly Podcast from Seattle called No Safe Word. It's a really cool Podcast featuring kinky subjects and guests. Some day we will drive up to Seattle and visit Tony and be featured on his Podcast. But for now we really miss you and Mikey!

VIDEO  FAIR PLAY

GALLERY: 863 / DATE: Jan 23 2016 / IMAGES: 19 / VIDEOS: 1

This is a fun video we shot years ago featuring a metal 'Bondage Erector Set'. It was made by DungeonDelights.com, but I don't know if they still make them anymore. Anyway, we drove five hours north of San Francisco to a warehouse where we were free to bring a ton of bondage gear and play all weekend.

In this video we used the Bondage Erector Set to restrain both of our friends Jamie and Chuck to a heavy metal bed frame. One thing we discovered was that Jamie was ticklish. Later, Chuck put on his favorite boxing gear and gave himself the name 'Meat', and before long he was restrained to the bed with nobody to box with except himself. A fun time was had by all. The warehouse is no longer available to us which is a real bummer. We had a lot of good times up there. C'est la vie!

VIDEO  BONDAGE-UK

GALLERY: 872 / DATE: Jan 21 2016 / IMAGES: 14 / VIDEOS: 1

This is an interesting interview video we shot with our friend Richard in the UK. Richard has a houseful of bondage gear and for a modest price will put you in the gear - either by the hour or for extended and overnight sessions. Check out his website for the details: bondage-uk.co.uk

Richard owns almost any piece of fetish gear you can think of including leather sleepsacks, straitjackets, Maxcita canvas, Humane Restraint, heavy rubber, and metal. The gear that attracted me the most was his solitary pit, padded room, metal and rubber coffins, and Gibbit cage.

Check out this video which highlights his gear, then check out the gallery page of his website which has still images of more gear which we didn't show in the video: bondage-uk.co.uk. It's not often you run across a guy with so much gear who is willing to share it with others for a modest price. A special thanks to Richard for allowing us to shoot this fun video.

VIDEO  RAWK-N-ROLL

GALLERY: 794 / DATE: Jan 17 2016 / IMAGES: 29 / VIDEOS: 2

This update includes 2 videos. The first captures some private play after a day attending the 2014 Mister International Rubber (MIR) event in Chicago. A guy is zipped into a rubber gimp suit on the floor of the apartment. The gimp suit fits him really well, which is not the case with all gimp suits. The shiny rubber along with the way his elbows fit into the sleeves and pads is really sexy.

The second video is a compilation of clips from the guys at the Rawk Correctional Institution. Officer Hawk minds his shackled prisoner FrostKnight as they walk down the street to the Mr S store. Notice the real police van that drives by in the background. For the most part, San Francisco is more tolerant of this type of public play, especially in the Castro District and around the Mr S store and Folsom street. However, with all the new high-tech people moving into the city this tolerance might change. Let’s hope not!

VIDEO  METAL IN RESTRAINT

GALLERY: 864 / DATE: Jan 14 2016 / IMAGES: 35 / VIDEOS: 1

In this vintage video our friend Metal who runs the popular blog MetalBondNYC.com came for a visit. Metal loves spread eagle bondage and inescapable shackles. In this scene he locks himself spread eagle on our backyard deck with special German Clejuso Cuffs with lockable grabbers. He's dressed in a black zentai suit and leather boots and he loves every minute of his self-bondage experience. He locked himself down in the afternoon but the sun was going down quickly. I wonder how late into the evening he was restrained until someone came to let him out? :-)

VIDEO  SLEEPLESS IN SAN FRANCISCO

GALLERY: 861 / DATE: Jan 11 2016 / IMAGES: 36 / VIDEOS: 1

Our dear friend Bondage Vienna (Recon) passed away last year. He was a big fan of rubber and bondage and is featured in more than one video on this website. Recently we ran across this vintage video showing Bondage Vienna a short time after he arrived at the SeriousBondage Institute. He had just come from the airport where he had been on a direct flight from Vienna Austria where he lived. He had barely removed his jacket when we asked him to take part in the test of a new suspension hoist we had installed. It should have only taken a few minutes, but one thing led to another and before he knew it he was strapped and chained in a heavy steel cage which was suspended off the floor with our new overhead hoist. We had promised him that the test would only take a few minutes, but after the vibrator was added to the mix Bondage Vienna asked if he could stay in the cage for the next few days. Bondage Vienna my friend, you will be missed.

VIDEO  INTAKE PROCEEDURE

GALLERY: 798 / DATE: Jan 5 2016 / IMAGES: 34 / VIDEOS: 1

This video highlights the intake procedure at a private jail cell facility. Officer Bind runs a new prisoner through a physical body inspection, photos and various clothing checks before the young man is admitted into the cell block. The prisoner is subjected to a variety of handcuffs, ankle shackles and chains during his first day of incarceration. As you will see, this is a special kind of prison.

VIDEO  FELIX, MUMMY ED, ET AL

GALLERY: 860 / DATE: Jan 2 2016 / IMAGES: 23 / VIDEOS: 2

Our friends Felix (RubCop on Recon) and MummyEd (MummyEd on Recon) are regulars at the SeriousBondage Institute. Felix is our rubber guy and MummyEd is our mummification guy. In these two videos we see both of them in their element, doing what they do best. As a matter of fact, I would bet that if either of them won the lottery they would do bondage 24/7. I guess that applies to me too. (Mark the editor). The orange rubber suit and black rubber straitjacket are from StudioGum.

VIDEO  THE KEY

GALLERY: 818 / DATE: Dec 30 2015 / IMAGES: 27 / VIDEOS: 1

Rank always seems to find a way to torment his visiting friends. In this video Gumminese (Recon) is zipped into a one-piece StudioGum rubber suit. The zippers of the suit have small built-in locks so once they are secured there is no way to open the zipper without the small key. One thing leads to another and Gumminese finds himself locked in the rubber suit and then shackled with giant cuffs. It is then up to Gumminese to unlock all the various shackles and zippers to release himself. This is no small task. Will he find his way out of this predicament? Watch the video and find out if our rubberized hero finds his way to freedom! The heavy orange rubber suit is from StudioGum.

VIDEO  SBI PRISONER

GALLERY: 859 / DATE: Dec 27 2015 / IMAGES: 35 / VIDEOS: 1

This is some fun bondage we did years ago with a rubber friend from Canada. In the first scene I chain him to a bolt in the floor of the closet where he must spend the night. In the second scene we suspend him upside-down in a Mr S darlex Walk Sack. The third scene is where it gets interesting. His collar is attached to an overhead chain which doesn't allow him to sit down. So he's stuck in the darlex walk sack and unable to get any relief. He tries to sit on a stool but the collar and chain don’t quite reach. Darn! Naturally this would be dangerous if he were left by himself, but the video makes for a good fantasy scene. Enjoy!

VIDEO  I CAN'T ESCAPE SIR!

GALLERY: 850 / DATE: Dec 24 2015 / IMAGES: 16 / VIDEOS: 1

Our friend Booted Ray from Recon is at it again. This time he puts his boy in a neoprene surf suit and gas-mask hood, which is then connected by a pair of rubber hoses to a dual-cylinder bubbler bottle. Next he straps the boy into a leather sleepsack. Then he uses a Maxcita strap set to secure the sleepsack to attachment points inside the padded isolation box. Finally he closes the top of the box. A wireless audio baby monitor inside the box allows Ray to monitor his boy. Finally, we hear over the baby monitor the words that make this whole process worthwhile "I can't escape Sir!" Ray's work is done.

VIDEO  THE BUNKER ADVENTURE

GALLERY: 858 / DATE: Dec 21 2015 / IMAGES: 177 / VIDEOS: 3

This is a re-edited version of a previous video highlighting a typical day of antics at the Serious Bondage Institute. We got together with our friends Chuck, Dalton and Louis, and explored the old military bunkers in the headlands just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. These heavy concrete encasements were leftover from WW-II, originally built to prevent ships from entering the San Francisco bay. There are many of these cement pillboxes, gun emplacements, ammunition bunkers and military buildings in these hills which overlook the entrance to the bay. The hills are managed by the California Park Service, and because the inside of the bunkers is quite dangerous (no lights and exposed vertical shafts) most of the doors of the buildings have been welded shut. However, there are a few places where you can sneak in if you have flashlights - which we did.

We brought along backpacks filled with heavy chain, padlocks, Clejuso grabber cuffs, and a heavy metal collar from RigidCuff. Also, just for fun, Chuck brought along his favorite striped prison suit and orange inmate cap from PX-Direct.

We spend the afternoon hiking around the hills exploring all of the bunkers we could find. There are probably upwards of 100 concrete installations hidden in the hills which vary in size from a phone booth (for a telescope lookout), to large ammo warehouses and mammoth artillery batteries. Along the way we took out the chains and locked Chuck to rusted bolts and a big vertical steel beam; our bondage gear seemed to match the size and feel of the heavy bunkers. All in all, we had a lot of fun. The next time we're going to leave Chuck chained up alone while we continue to scout the hills - maybe overnight? This update is a re-edited version of a previous update. This video is in three parts and is much longer than the previous video, and this video is in the newer MP4 format. A special thanks to Chuck, Louis and Dalton for participating in this video. Enjoy!

VIDEO  FUN WITH SBI

GALLERY: 810 / DATE: Dec 18 2015 / IMAGES: 29 / VIDEOS: 2

Here are two videos that show the fun we have messing with gear. The first video features a vintage rocket fueling suit we got from our friend 'Strap Wizard' on FetLife. This suit has three protective layers of rubber and fabric; however, sadly, it is missing the gloves. Nonetheless we were able to cram our friend Louis into the suit and mount the associated air blower on his back which allowed him to walk around the house completely unencumbered. It turned out that the air blower was a very important piece because it pressurized the suit with outside air. Without the blower Louis would have overheated within just a few minutes. The blower also pushed fresh air into the helmet via small ducts which prevented the helmet from fogging up.

The second video features our custom bondage table and stocks. The stocks can be located anywhere up and down the table, allowing the stocks to fit people of different heights and body sizes. The stocks can be added or removed to create different bondage configurations. I (Mark the editor) actually made the entire set of stocks and the table myself back in 2001. The head box was built and added later by Officer Hawk at RawkCI.com. Thanks Hawk, what a great addition!

VIDEO  USE EVERY AVAILABLE STRAP

GALLERY: 853 / DATE: Dec 15 2015 / IMAGES: 14 / VIDEOS: 1

This is another vintage video we shot years ago in a warehouse in Northern California. The two pieces of cool gear in this video are the steel bondage crib, and a latex vac-rack. The bondage crib was made by Martin over at Cuff24.com. It is made of super heavy square steel tubing and is welded together in one piece, so it weighs a ton and takes at least four guys to move it. The top lifts on and off, but was never made to hinge or lock. Maybe we will do that in the future. The cool thing about this crib is that it is totally made for bondage, with plenty of attachment points along all four sides around the padded cushion. The attachment points are round steel so it works well with leather Humane Restraint straps. And as you will see, towards the end we used every available strap to restrain our friend Chuck.

The second piece of gear is the latex vac-rack. There is nothing special about this vac-rack other than it was connected to a shop vac so we had plenty of suction to work with. For those who are not familiar with a vac rack, the cool part is the last few moments when the latex is about to be totally evacuated and sucked down to a static state. You can see this twice in the video. We used a long hose from the shop vacuum to the vac rack to try and keep the noise of the vacuum to a minimum. However, as a result, the long hose creates a loud whistling sound as the air rushing is echoed up and down the inside of the hose. This vac rack had two openings, one for the cock and one for the breathing tube. Our friend Jamie had a problem with their ears because there is a difference in air pressure between the outside air he is breathing and the inside of the vac rack which is being evacuated by the shop vac. In any case, both guys had a great time.

VIDEO  COME CUDDLE

GALLERY: 849 / DATE: Dec 12 2015 / IMAGES: 43 / VIDEOS: 1

Here is a fun video we shot with some guys who visited us during the 2015 Folsom Fair. We had acquired some new gear including a heavy rubber straitjacket and a super thick Rubbers Finest faceless hood which looks amazing on one of the guys. Our friend Felix was in a unique Maxcita sleepsack with straitjacket arms which we suspended from overhead. Some serious hugging and cuddling was performed during this session, and a fun time was had by all. The orange heavy rubber suit and the black rubber straitjacket are both from StudioGum.

VIDEO  CODE YELLOW - RUBBER THERAPY

GALLERY: 561 / DATE: Dec 9 2015 / IMAGES: 54 / VIDEOS: 1

Here is a vintage video from 2009. Rank uses a Studio Gum inflatable rubber bag in an entirely new way. As the bag is inflated, Rank's yellow gimp is stretched out helplessly. His chains become tight and unforgiving as he is held in a vulnerable position. Then he is cocooned in a puffy rubber hood and mitts, and zipped up inside the bag for further torment by inflation. The bag is secured with chains so the gimp is held in place as final and relentless stimulation is applied to acheive a happy ending. Heavy metal wrist and ankle shackles from Martin at Cuff24.com.

This is a vintage video is in the Windows Media format. If you don't have a Windows Media player load the free VLC Media Player from VideoLAN which should work on PC's, Mac's as well as mobile devices.

VIDEO  SAND BAG MAN

GALLERY: 685 / DATE: Dec 6 2015 / IMAGES: 26 / VIDEOS: 1

This is another hot scene by our friend Rank. He straps a rubber friend into a neoprene straitjacket, then secures him to a suspendable bondage platform. Sandbags are attached to the bottom of the rig so it tips lower at the head end, and then the entire rig is hauled up in the air by an overhead hoist. The highlight of the scene is a transparent breather hood which Rank pulls over the gimp's head. Since there is only one small breathing hole in the hood, the gimp needs to breathe slowly to control the collapsing of the face of the hood. Tricky business but manageable. This is a mesmerizing video for sure. Enjoy! Check out Rank's blog at RankInSF.com. Rank's neoprene straitjacket is from Mr S.

ALL-METAL BONDAGE

GALLERY: 8 / DATE: Dec 3 2015 / IMAGES: 174

In this vintage set of photos from 2008, Dalton tries out a selection of machined aluminum restraints from RigidCuff. These restraints are quite heavy and unique. Some of the restraints allow a chain to pass through the restraint so it can be locked to other pieces of gear. The combination of the heavy steel cage, chains and the RigidCuff restraints makes for an exciting and completely inescapable situation, and for those who have played with all-metal bondage you can appreciate the feeling of the metal-on-metal bondage and how it clanks through your bones as you struggle helplessly. All metal bondage is quite a special experience. Check out the RigidCuff website at Cuff24.com.
