This vintage set of still photos was taken at the SeriousBondage Institute in 2009 and features our friend Gumbi. As indicated by his name, Gumbi loves rubber. I think the word 'gum' refers to natural rubber obtained from trees, like 'Studio Gum' and the popular kids animation TV show 'Gumbi' from 60's. In any case, we used some heavy metal bondage gear from RigidCuff to restrain Gumbi in the middle of the room, with no chance of moving or sitting down. I think this is a hot scene and it's too bad we didn't shoot a video of this because we were only shooting stills when we first started the website.
The RigidCuff bondage gear is really heavy duty and exciting to use because it's so overwhelming. As I recall, the single piece wrist cuffs are called 'Z Cuffs' and the single piece ankle cuff is called 'Rigid 8 Cuff'. The guy who makes this gear is a German guy by the name of Martin. Check out his website and all of his gear at Cuff24.com. Here is an article about Martin and his gear titled Master Of Metal, and check out this list of all the gear he has ever made by clicking HERE. Pretty cool gear, eh? Enjoy these photos and use your imagination!
Our friend Rank employs a new tool from his arsenal of kinky gear. This is a medical halo brace which serves to keep his rubber gimp sitting upright and at full attention. Slouching gimps will not be tolerated. Once the gimp is enclosed in a heavy rubber StudioGum hood, secured in the medical brace and mounted to the chair, the breath and posture training begins. Rank really knows how to take advantage of helpless rubbermen. You can tell Rank's enjoying himself when you see that special smile on his face. I wonder what expression the gimp has on his face under that severe rubber hood? Visit Rank's rubber blog at RankInSF.com.
For those of us who practice self-bondage, I'm sure you will
be able to relate to this video. Our friend Kyle locks himself into a special
bondage crib with Humane Restraint straps and
cuffs, only to drop the key on the floor out of his reach. Oh Shit! This vintage video is from 2009 and is in the Windows Media format. A universal video player for Mac and Windows is available for free from VideoLan.com. The steel bondage
crib was made by our friend Martin at Cuff24.com.
This is our friend 'Metal' at his finest. He demands multiple loads from the men who visit him. This video captures one prisoner, two loads, and two bondage scenes. There was supposed to be a third load and scene but we ran out of time. We will visit him again in the near future and pick it up where we left off. Metal runs the popular bondage blog MetalbondNYC.com which is known world-wide. The site has been on-line for years and has tons of followers. For those who are fans of his blog, this is a rare glimpse into Metal's personal play. This guy is the real deal. The canvas sleepsack with straitjacket arms is from Maxcita.com.
This is a set of vintage rubber photos from 2009. As I have said many times in the past, there's nothing better than to be enclosed in heavy latex and chained to the wall. I often fantasize about heavy rubber and bondage, and in this set of photos I try to capture the essence of true fetish helplessness. You can achieve a real sexual high when in wearing head-to-toe rubber, a gas-mask, and restrained in metal bondage, and so long as you don't cum you can ride this high for hours. This is my drug of choice. :-)
Our friend TapedAndTortured (Recon) entertains many visitors to his house throughout the year. There are a few reasons for this: 1) he is really good at duct tape mummification and bondage, 2) he has an ultra-cool two story play room, 3) he is a nice guy, 4) he is a safe player. In this video we see one of his signature wraps: a standing cross with posture collar, breathing tube, parachute ball weight and e-stim butt-plug. Yep. This is the real deal. This guy is serious about his play, and most of his wraps can be considered works of art. Check out this video and see for yourself.
Our friend Rank secures his gimp into a special metal bondage bed using a wrench to tighten the bolts. This bed is designed to provide relentless vibrator stimulation until multiple orgasms are achieved. Time is on Rank’s side, and he can leave this poor guy secured and stimulated all night if necessary. This is a test of endurance as once you are bolted into this rig you are unable to avoid the intense stimulation. This is what the heavy steel restraints are for. Some guys have been driven into a wild frenzy, and without the heavy metal bondage they might have injured themselves. Well, OK, maybe I’m overplaying this a bit. Nonetheless, this is a hot rubber dude in a hot predicament. Enjoy!
Many of you probably wonder who the guy is behind the popular bondage blog MetalbondNYC.com. He goes by the name 'Metal' and lives in New York City. We had the pleasure of shooting this video in his apartment, and although Metal can't show his face on camera, he provided some narration during this hot spread eagle Speedo scene.
The scene was conducted by his two Recon friends 'SpeedoBound' and 'TapeGag10014', but Metal provided some interesting comments along the way. As an example, Metal said that in his opinion "a hot cock in a Speedo rates right up there with handcuffs". Wow, we thought Metal was only into metal bondage! As usual, fun was had by all. A special thanks to Metal, SpeedoBound (in the speedo) and TapeGag10014 (the rope guy) for sharing their special New York bondage passion with us. Check out Metal's site at MetalbondNYC.com.
In this fun video our friends Wired4Fun and Low Maintenance (both on Recon) play with some rotating suspension gear, assisted by our in-house bondage expert Dalton. Both Wired4fun and Low Maintenance live on the east coast of the US so we don't see them very often. Wired4Fun is in the blue latex and Low Maintneance is strapped to the suspension board. Low Maintenance is confined in a Mr. S leather hood, leather straps, padded leather mitts, and a pair of unique Sinvention leather arm splints. From what we could see they were both having a good time!
The Rawk Correctional Institution is the place to go for severe lockdown and restraint. In this video a rubber dude is restrained to a real psych-ward observation platform. Using Humane Restraint gear, the officers apply as many straps and cuffs as is necessary to fully subdue this rubber guy including a hospital safety helmet. If you have ever fantasized about being confined in a mental institution, contact the guys at Rawk and make an appointment. This is as real as it gets.
In this video our friend Rank shows how he uses rolls of thin strip latex to bind his rubber-clad subjects. The strips of latex are quite effective and feel great. His helpless rubber gimp is attached to a metal bondage frame with ankle shackles, helpless mitts and the latex strips. Rank puts an egg vibrator in his pouch and then sits on the couch to admire his work. What a life! Check out Rank’s rubber blog RankInSF.com.
MymmyEd applies his duct tape mummification skills to a visiting friend while using the playspace of yet another friend TapedAndTortured (Recon). TapeAndTortured owns an awesome two-story playroom with a super heavy metal bondage bed in the lower level and a spiral staircase between the two rooms. TapedAndTortured is actually a duct tape mummification guy as well.
After MummyEd applies a multi-layer wrap on his subject including a splash of camouflage tape, his head is enclosed in a metal bondage helmet which is bolted closed. Clearly, this guy isn't going anywhere. I think he's exactly where he wants to be. Good work MummyEd!
This is a fun video featuring our friend Bind and Sir Tim. Under instruction from his Sir, Bind is dressed in a metal helmet and chains, and the two of them tour the popular Dore Alley event (now known as Up Your Alley) while inviting people to sign Bind's body with colored pins. Not only do they have a lot of fun, but we cover all the other people in gear at the event with our video camera. Clearly, the best part of this event is providing a place for people like Bind to wear their favorite bondage gear in public.
Dore Alley (Up Your Alley) is the small brother to the massive and popular Folsom Street Fair. Both events are held in San Francisco, and although Dore Alley is smaller than Folsom it is growing each year and has outgrown its original back alley birthplace. A special thanks to Bind and Sir Tim for this fun video. Check out Bind's website at MenInChains.com.
Testing continues on a regular basis at the SeriousBondage Institute. If we are going to push the frontiers of bondage we need to keep a tight schedule of testing when we have volunteers at our disposal. These volunteers donate their time to be restrained in unusual scenarios so we can evaluate their survival rate and involuntary responses. This update contains three videos titled 'Just Testing', 'StudioGum Suit' and 'Steam Bath' which highlight some of our testing procedures.
Our friends at the Rawk Correctional Institution encourage their prisoners to write on the jail cell walls. One prisoner wrote Wang Doodle. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe it is some kind of secret message? Anyway, check out the two fun videos in this update. One is titled 'Wang Doodle' and the other is titles 'Shitin' Bricks'. Enjoy!
MymmyEd is fun to play with, which is why he has such a following of submissives. In this case his friend Steve came for a visit and allowed MummyEd to work his magic while we shot video of their play. The first video is titled 'Good Investment' and highlights a puffy hood which they had purchased together that morning at Mr S. MummyEd restrains his arms behind his back with a short spreader bar and a pair of McKinsey mitts and lets Steve ponder his predicament in his new puffy hood while his hands are suspended from an overhead hoist cable. In the second video titled 'Shiver' MummyEd chains poor Steve in a metal helmet, Mckenzie Mitts and ankle shackles and hoses him down with the garden hose. Steve is helpless and unable to avoid the cold water hence the title ‘Shiver’. A good time was had by all and we expect to see Steve again after he views these videos!
This is one of my favorite videos. It features an intense 5-way spread-eagle bondage scene with steel shackles bolted to the concrete floor. We usually think of 5-way shackles as connecting the neck to the wrists and ankles. However, in this case the subject is shackled by the wrists and ankles and his balls. Yep! A special steel bracket is bolted to the floor which has a small clamp which attaches around the scrotum to hold his balls firmly in one position. This clamp creates the fifth anchor point. This guy is totally secured with no place to go. In this scenario the subject happens to be the prison warden. He is overpowered by an inmate who then releases another prisoner and together they torment the warden in unspeakable ways. As you will see, this is a HOT video!
Vac cubes are fun to play with. In this case it's a vertical vac-cube from Rage Rubber (which now seems to be out of business). A vertical vac-cube is really no different than a square vac-cube except that you can stand upright and your head pops out the top.
In this video the fun comes at the end of the vac-cube session, when Rank challenges his friend to escape from the cube without ripping the rubber. This doesn't seem like a big deal until his friend discovers that the zipper is an industrial model with the handle on the outside, not the inside. Hummm... This doesn't stop him though, and he implements Part-2 of his escape plan. Check out this hilarious video and see what Part-2 entails. Visit Rank’s rubber blog at RankInSF.com.
This seemed to be a day for bondage and puppy play. Three puppies showed up at SeriousBondage Institute. Two were partners on vacation and their puppy play turned out to be very warm and intimate. Later, a third puppy arrived and together the three of them had fun with their K-9 personas.
Puppy play is on the rise, with more puppies showing up each year at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. Rubber puppies are a special breed and there seem to be a lot of them at the yearly Mister International Rubber (MIR) event held in Chicago each year. A special thanks to our three puppies for sharing their special kind of play in this fun video.
Rank makes a deal with his suspended rubber gimp 'GearMutt'.
If GearMutt can manage to turn himself around 360 degrees Rank will release him. Struggling,
moaning, laughter and a vibrator serve to entertain these two rubber guys. Mutt discovers that being suspended from a ball-bearing
swivel is like being an astronaut in outer space with nothing to grab onto to propel himself. Hilarious! Check out Rank's rubber blog at RankInSF.com.
