This is a vintage set of photos and video clips from 2006 when we first started this website. Here is a bit of background: the San Francisco Folsom Fair was started many years ago by the Gay leather community, and over the years it has grown to attract hundreds of thousands of people - both gay and straight. The Fair is held on Folsom Street in the South-of-Market area of San Francisco, where 5-6 blocks of the street are blocked to cars so all the people can have a place to hang out and strut their stuff.
On this day we followed Mistress Mya and her submissive Gumbi to the fair, starting at the SeriousBondage Institute where we called for a cab. When the cab driver saw Gumbi's cock hanging out of his latex suit he sped off down the street without us. So, we called another cab as Mya stuffed Gumbi's cock into his suit, and a few minutes later we were on our way. Mya and Gumbi had only met a few days earlier, and as you will see, they clearly hit it off while sharing their love for public BDSM play.
This update contains three video clips and 218 still images. The video clips are in the Windows Media (.wmv) format. If you are not able to play these videos try loading the free VLC media player which can be found HERE.
This was just a test. Petgirl built this chair out of pieces of water pipe and we wanted to see how it would work if we strapped somebody to it. Our friend Tony Orlando happened to be around so he was volunteered to be the test monkey. Petgirl first put Tony in a medical halo brace, and then used leather straps to secure him to the chair. This wasn't serious bondage, it was just a test. The garden hose was just a test too, to see how the pipe chair would hold up when water was sprayed on it. Although Tony was cold and shivering, the telltale bulge in his shorts gave him away. A fun time was had by all.
Gwen of Rubber Dynasty shows us how to inflate a rubber suit as easily as you would fill your car tire at a gas station. Her rubber gimp is Gumbi, and these vintage photos were shot in Gumbi's playroom in 2008.
The combination of Gumbi's inflatable latex suit and his serious bondage chair are probably one of my favorite bondage scenes, and I’m glad we had a chance to photograph them in action. Basically, my attraction to this combination of gear has to do with how the latex suit bulges out from in-between the leather straps. I can only imagine how I would feel to be in the suit, restrained in the chair, and looking out through the eye holes of the hood to see the thick leather straps sinking into the inflated latex around my body. Wow!
Gumbi has been collecting gear for years, and has a collection that rivals most fetish stores. His gear was obtained from fetish suppliers and manufacturers located all over the world. In this set of photos, his inflatable latex suit was from Regulation, the inflatable latex hood is from DeMask, and his red latex helpless mitts and leather booties are from Mister-S. The bondage chair is no longer available.
In this video we find three people in bondage in a selection of very cool gear. Our friend Elise Graves is tormented in an upper cage by MummyEd while Betty Cash looks on from a lower cage. Betty has a special view of Elise’s' pussy because there is a transparent plexiglas bottom to the top cage! Later, an anonymous rubber gimp in the bondage chair is worked over by Elise Graves who applies her own brand of torment. This video shows how much fun an army of kinky people can have when they get together. Check out Elise's new website DigitalDark.org.
This update includes 122 vintage still photos of JG-Leathers during his visit to the SeriousBondage Institute in 2008. During his visit JG expressed an interest in trying our concrete deck cell, so off to the hardware store we went. You may ask what a hardware store has to do with the patio cell? I have learned to not ask these questions when JG is present. Just go with the flow, because JG knows what he's doing and what he wants to use in his scene.
We returned from the hardware run with 30 feet of plastic washing machine drainage hose. The idea was to hook up my industrial vacuum cleaner to his breast cups and cock suction device, and locate the vacuum around the side of the house because it’s so noisy. If you are familiar with JG's play you will know that having some kind of vacuum system hooked to his stimulation apparatus is a standard procedure. We attached the myriad of hoses and e-stim gear to JG and lowered him into cell. Next, we chained his wrists to bolts in the walls. Lastly we then fired up the e-stim and vacuum, closed the hatch of the cell, and left JG to experience his helpless confinements and relentless stimulation. As JG would say, “What a ride!”
A special thanks to JG for sharing his own brand of kink with us. Visit his website for interesting imagery and stories at JG-Leathers.com. This guy is the real deal!
This is the fourth and final installment of videos from our visit with Hans-Peter, the new Studio Gum owner located in Frankfurt Germany. In these videos we see actual liquid latex and how it dries to become the material used in hoods and clothing, We also see Mark try on a thick latex suit, and all of us gathered around the kitchen table talking with our friend ModeNarr using Apple Facetime. Everyone had a good time and our visit with Hans-Peter was nothing less than magical.
In this set of vintage photos our friend JG-Leathers pays a visit to the SeriousBondage Institute during the 2008 San Francisco Folsom Street Fair, and volunteers to try out our new dentist chair. This is a rare and close-up glimpse at JG's gear including an early prototype of his vacuum and stimulation cock tube. His gear is constantly evolving, and as JG says "hornyness is the mother in invention". This is so true! Check out his website at JG-Leathers.com. This guy is the real deal.
This update includes two videos. Some of our local gay friends came for a visit so Petgirl Kako and Mode Narr (both on FetLife) threw one of them into some heavy rubber and metal bondage gear. Gay or straight, no one can pass up an opportunity for some serious rubber and bondage with unique gear. Among the gear was a Studio Gum suit, McKenzie mitts, a piss hood, inflatable mitts, leather puffy hood, butterfly straitjacket, the SeriousBondage chair, an inhaler dildo and rubber mouth hood. This was quite a selection of gear and as you will see, everyone had a good time. The two videos in this update are titled 'Feverish Pitch' and 'Around The House'. A special thanks to Latex-Maske.de and StudioGum.com for supplying most of the rubber gear.
This is one of the more crazy videos we have shot at the SeriousBondage Institute. We invited the 'Strap Wizard' (Fetlife) to show us some of the medical braces he owns and talk about their names and attributes. There were five of us in all; Elise Graves, Petgirl Kako, Tony Orlando, Strap Wizard and myself. One thing led to another and before we knew it all of us were in medical braces including Tony Orlando who was also in leg braces and handcuffed into a wheelchair. Chaos ensued when the girls conducted a tickle test on Tony and Elise gave him an oral exam. (Elise has a fetish for dentistry) I guess this is what happens when you put five kinksters in a room full of fetish gear. As you will see, everyone had a good time and we all have better posture as a result of our brace experiences. A special thanks to the Strap Wizard for sharing his gear with us, and to Tony Orlando for being such a good sport. Also, check out Elise's new website DigitalDark.org.
Part 2of4 - The stubborn submissive Angel is lubed from neck to toe and required to don a special rubber catsuit. This suit has breast and crotch openings which allow access to the erogenous parts of her body. Once Angel is fully encased in the catsuit, a leather body harness is cinched around her torso which holds an unusual dildo pole and pair of suction breast cups in place. As this bizarre gear is fitted onto - and into - Angel's voluptuous body she starts to sense the restriction and control it will have on her. Maybe being so stubborn wasn't such a good idea after all?
It is our pleasure to present one of the few videos by JG-Leathers. This video was shot at his house in 2009, and features his kinky friends Angel and Mistress Marlene. It is a simple adaptation of books JG-Leathers has published over the years. His stories always seem to revolve around young beautiful women who are kept in some form of bizarre bondage. JG's work can be found on Amazon Books, Pink Flamingo, and on his website JG-Leathers.com.
In the two remaining parts of this video Angel will be subjected to JG’s famous and scary invention called 'The Creature' which finally breaks the girl, as her Mistress had requested. A special thanks to JG, Angel and Mistress Marlene for working so hard to create this fun set of videos.
Mistress Miranda in London owns a lot of gear, and we believe this helmet is one of her best pieces. It is a video helmet from Rubbers Finest. This unusual helmet is made of thick black rubber and has video goggles built into the eye sockets which force the subject to watch the video images and nothing else. Mistress Miranda uses a live video camera to feed the helmet so her subject can see their own torment from a third party perspective. Mistress Miranda calls this setup her 'Mistress Cam'.
In this play scene the popular bondage model Elise Graves is strapped to Miranda's medical table and tormented with Serious Kit nipple suction, e-stim, and electrified dildo. During the entire process Elise is able to watch her own torment via the video helmet. As you watch this video the image cuts between our camera and the video helmet feed, so you are able to see exactly what Elise is seeing. This is a very unusual video.
These vintage photos are from our friends at StraitjacketBound.com in Los Angeles. The images feature the Anastasia Pierce in a classic leather straitjacket. In the early days of the Internet, photos were the medium of choice so each image needed to be as sexy as possible. Also, fetish websites were more about the gear and less about nudity and raw sex. There was always something left to your imagination. That’s the case here. I love how the black leather passes between her creamy thighs, and the helpless and worried look on her face. Poor girl. Anastasia really knows how to work the camera.
In this set of vintage photos we feature Amanda Wildefyre's amazing Fetters leather sleepsack. You may have seen other leather sleepsacks, but this one is special for a few reasons: 1) It was made by the late Jim Stewart in the UK. Jim was the person who started the well-known Fetters line of bondage gear years ago, and 2) This leather sleepsack has internal bags which can be inflated with compressed air which tighten the bag after it has been already zipped and laced closed.
Jim Stewart made this sleepsack specifically for Amanda, and as you can see, it is quite a beautiful piece of gear. By the way, Jim had a website called Houdini Connections, but I don't know how often he updated it. Jim had been a driving force behind making bondage gear more accessible and popular worldwide.
You will note that Amanda and her assistant insert a number of spiked pads into the sleepsack and ballet boots before they seal their subject into the bag. Also, notice that the sleepsack has an optional foot sack extension which adds just enough additional length to the bag to accommodate the length of the ballet boots. We hope you enjoy this set of 336 photos.
This set of vintage photos feature Mistress Bekah's black boots as much as the rubber she and her submissive are wearing. This San Francisco domme is experienced in rubber cocooning and confinement, and also loves the tight feel and how rubber looks on herself. Her submissive goes by the name of Gumbi, and he loves to experience bizarre and unusual rubber gear. Whenever these two get together their energy seems to click and they have a good time with minimal communication. These photos were shot during the early days of the SeriousBondage Institute. Enjoy!
This is the third installment of videos from our visit with Hans-Peter, the new Studio Gum owner located in Frankfurt Germany. In these videos we see Elise Graves in a smoky colored latex Vac-Cube. This vac-cube features thin rigid metal tubing instead of plastic tubing. The metal tubing doesn't bend under the pressure of the vacuum so the cube keeps its rectangular shape and 90 degree corners. This is a definite improvement over plastic tubing.
Elise Graves also tries on a heavy latex suit with attached hood and internal gag. This is a loose fitting suit which is good for extended term wear. Personally, I like the loose fit because this is the only practical way to experience heavy gauge rubber. Once Elise is in the suit Hans-Peter binds her hands and feet into a few different bondage positions while she squirms and coos in her rubber prison. The suit fit her quite well so she purchased it and brought it back to the US. You will see this amazing suit on this website in the future. All in all, everyone had a good time and it was a pleasure to see and experience all of Hans-Peter's cool rubber gear.
Hans-Peter operates two retail rubber websites: StudioGum.com and Latex-Maske.de. He also has a booth at the popular BoundCon event each year in Munich Germany. Hans also mentioned setting up a rubber showroom in Frankfurt. This which would be great because you could visit the showroom, try on gear, and buy it right there instead of waiting for an on-line order to arrive. This would also assure a correct fit of the gear. Hopefully we will see this showroom in the future. A special thanks to Hans-Peter, Mistress Miranda, Elise Graves and Petgirl Kako for participating in these unique videos. Also, check out Elise's new video website DigitalDark.org.
Leave it to Mistress Alice to conduct one of the more unusual bondage scenes we have seen. With assistance from her friend Evangeline, Mistress Alice first locks her submissive 'Sissy Amy' in a suspended metal stock. Next she inserts an expanding 'pear' butt plug into him, then attaches chains from two rigid metal posts to his butt plug and chastity which holds him fixed between the two posts. Unbelievable. We couldn't believe what we were seeing. Actually, words don't even describe this video. As they say, 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so you should see this video instead of reading my description. A special thanks to Mistress Alice, Evangeline, and Sissy Amy for creating this highly unusual scene. For more videos of Mistress Alice visit her website at AliceInBondageLand.com. The rigid metal stock is from Cuff24.com, the expanding butt plug is from MEO.de, and Sissy's chastity device is from Steelwerks Extreme.
Part 1of4 - It is our pleasure to present one of the few videos of JG-Leathers in action. JG prefers still images, so videos of him are few and far between. This video was shot at his house in 2009, and features some of his kinky friends Angel and Mistress Marlene. In Part-1 of this four part video Mistress Marlene asks JG for his help with training one of her stubborn submissives Angel. Angel is delivered to JG hooded and chained in the back of a van. Once she is unshackled she spends some time naked and connected to the outdoor fence with handcuffs, an Axsmar nose hook and chain. She is sprayed down with cold water and left to ponder her wrongdoings.
This video is simple adaptation from the myriad of books which JG has published over the years. His stories always seem to revolve around young women who are kept in bondage. JG's work can be found on Amazon Books, Pink Flamingo, and on his website JG-Leathers.com. In the three remaining parts of this video Angel will be subjected to 'The Creature' which finally breaks the girl as her Mistress requested. A special thanks to JG, Angel and Mistress Marlene for working so hard to create this fun set of videos.
During our last visit to Mistress Miranda in London we were introduced to her friend Miss Mighty. This domme has experience in rubber and bondage, and when she teams up with Mistress Miranda they are a force to be reckoned with. Together these two went after our poor intern Petgirl Kako. Petgirl was tethered to suspension points, wired with e-stim and had her nose ring attached overhead under tension. There was lots of moaning from Petgirl, especially when the two dommes left the room and took a break. I believe Petgirl was used as dungeon decoration, and what a decoration she made. A special thanks to Miss Mightly and Mistress Miranda for showing us what two British dommes can do with access to unlimited gear and a cute submissive.
It’s my opinion that the only thing better than a pretty woman is a pretty woman tied up and helpless in bondage. I guess that's why there are so many bondage websites devoted to that subject. That said, I forgot to mention that I like to see pretty woman in bondage - with their clothes on. Yep. I know there are others out there who feel the same way.
In this set of still photos we took great pleasure is photographing this lady with her clothes on. She had always wanted to be photographed in bondage so we were more than happy to so. The leather straps, helpless mitts and wide ankle cuffs are from Mr S. The heavy metal collar and ‘Z Cuffs’ are from Martin of RigidCuffs. The ballet shoes belong to the model herself. Imagine that. This update contains still photos only.
I met my friend Bailey through the local San Francisco BDSM club called The Society of Janus. Bailey is lots of fun to be around, and she's agreeable to trying most any kink experience - at least once.
She came for a visit and before I knew it she inside the concrete isolation cell under the patio deck. I grabbed my camera and yelled for someone to bring a pair of boots from our gear room. It's my feeling that pretty women, bondage and sexy black boots just go together. Don’t you agree? She had a lot of fun in front of my camera and she will probably load the photos on her FetLife profile or Twitter feed. She’s pretty popular in those circles. This update contains still photos only.
