crying - page 1
We won 'Best Hardcore' in The Stranger's Hump 2007 Amateur and Locally Produced Porn Contest. We'd created Pirate vs Ninja for the first one a couple years ago, and this year they asked us very nicely to send something in. We edited down 'Everyone Likes Candy' into a seven-minute package and called it 'Lauren Likes Candy'. The audiences thought it was pretty intense, but still voted for us for Best Hardcore (as opposed to Best Funny/Erotic, the other prize).
Lauren will add to this at some point, just wanted to get something up. ^-^
Emily is _adorably_ cute. We didn't particularly plan out this shoot, just played with the stuff we both like. Lots of play with sharp metal things, impact on sensitive bits, etc. Much of the first part of the shoot she's not restrained at all, on purpose so I could watch her struggle to hold still while I did terrible things to her. ^-^ She was a good girl but did squeak and squirm quite a bit, so eventually some bondage was needed. Once she was pretty immobile, I told her to shake her tits for me or I'd do more mean things. That was of course grossly unfair, but she did her best.
The second part of the scene included a first for Emily (imagine, she'd never had someone smear tiger balm in her asshole). This got intense pretty fast, but we were able to recover nicely. We finished with some unique uses for flash cotton, read on for details...
I've got a friend who's been experimenting with spinning flash cotton into thread. Months (and months and months) before this shoot, Emily and I had played very briefly off-camera with setting the thread on her and igniting it. She'd thought this was just the coolest thing since sliced bread, but moved away before we could play further. She came back for a visit and this shoot, and she was _really_ excited to have a chance to play with it some more. It worked quite well, we used it a few different ways. I think my favorite was having her sitting on the floor to light for herself the end of a long 'fuse' running along the floor to her feet, then back up along her leg to a pile of loose flash cotton sitting on her pubic mound. Taking an action to initiate something you're scared of is a lot tougher than having someone do it for you, and she also had plenty of time to think about it while the fuse burned. Fear is hot.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: This was fun and sexy, Emily had a (ahem) blast and wants to do it again, but I think I'd stick to loose cotton if I were to do this another time. Spinning the flash cotton down to thread means it burns slower. That's handy for psychological effects involving duration, but means there's more heat transferred. The sensation is thus more intense (which Emily also liked), but also involves a greater risk of burns. We'd played with it before and she'd had no marks, but this scene left some surface marking that I gather took a few weeks to go away.
IMPORTANT SAFETY DISCLAIMER: Fire burns. Don't play with fire without knowing the risks and how to mitigate them to a level that's acceptable to the _informed_ consent of everyone involved. Reading a couple articles on the Internet is really not adequate research! If there's a BDSM group in your area, find someone who knows what they're doing in real life, and learn from them. There's a book out there (link), but it's not the same thing- learn and practice with a person if you want to do this.

This shoot was tough to do and tough to capture on camera for a number of reasons. Our main photographer couldn't make it, so we had someone else step in at pretty short notice (thanks, Jeanette!). For most of the first half of the shoot, the next-door tenants were playing Really Bad Dance Music at club-level volumes - distracting, to say the least! (Hey, you try being a big, bad top with disco deedleing loudly in the background. :P ) To add to the chaos, we lost a whole card of stills from near the beginning of the shoot due to technical difficulties. And those weren't the only ways things didn't go as planned...
Maxx is my primary partner, and we play in a very connected, high-chemistry way. Ordinarily, she's a massive painslut, wearing out my arms before she's anywhere close to done. This scene began as a fairly straightforward impact play set, but quickly became something more cathartic. Due to a number of factors, she was having a much tougher time than usual processing intense sensation, which turned the tears on much earlier than either of us anticipated. We played through it because we were both still enjoying ourselves deeply - as the smiles during and after the tears will attest - but it remains a good example of how scenes have a way of taking on a shape of their own regardless of either player's intent.
We began with some garden-variety roughhousing, which soon evolved into a lot of me hitting Maxx with the Mean Thuddy Stick-thing of Doom. The original idea was for me to push her past the pre-negotiated bratting stage to a point where she was willing to beg me to put a pronged training collar on her. Because of the direction the scene went, we never reached that goal - but it gave me something to play with for next time!
She had been making smartassed comments about the "giant zip-ties" that Russell and I are so fond of. I had planned to cuff her hands behind her back with them, but decided to use them as an impact toy first. As you might imagine, they pack a MEAN sting. Afterwards, I used them for their intended purpose while flogging her until she decided that they weren't quite as funny anymore. It was a hot, fun bit - and due to the aforementioned camera difficulties, we don't have any stills from it. You should be able to see it on the video, though!
I experimented with a couple lazy-top forms of bondage (a scratchy hemp lasso and then suspension cuffs clipped to an overhead chain and pulley set) while I alternated between thuddy impact (which Maxx loves) and stingy impact (which she violently hates).
One of my favorite toys was particularly tough for her--a heavy flogger made from "vegan leather" (rubber, for all intents and purposes), with narrow tails that split again halfway down the fall. Viciously stingy, very scratchy, and beautiful for raising marks! A short, intense flogging with that brought her to tears for the second time in the shoot.
I decided to finish her off with one of her favorites, a whip that I actually bought specifically for her. It's made of heavy buffalo hide, extremely thick and almost luxurious. It packs one hell of a WHOMP - it's the thuddiest toy that I own.
The flogging went on for much longer than is obvious from the stills, and by the end of it, she was feeling pretty done in. We took a break, to give her arms a rest (being bound up in that position is surprisingly exhausting) and decided that it was a good time to call it done. We were both floppy and endorphin high and ready to curl up together. Even though nothing happened as planned, it was still a wonderfully fun shoot for us!

We did this shoot a few days pre-christmas, and the holiday spirit of stress was in the air. So, Rose and I opted for a very straightforward scene: chain her up, slap/spank/paddle her breasts, slap/spank/paddle her ass, then flog the heck out of her back until she got off. No complicated theme, minimal planning, just a simple intense scene.
The breast play was particularly good here. Rose has really nice tits and the bondage position was one that displayed and made them vulnerable, plus left her just mobile enough for good squirming and struggling. I've got a particular kink for slapping breasts around, and we spent plenty of time doing exactly that. There was also some good hard paddling of her ass, but the tit torture in this scene continues to be some of my very favorite.
Rose was also clever and kept finding ways to unhook the wrist cuffs and grab at toys I was using on her- that made for a nice playful scene with lots of interaction that wasn't just physical. We had a fun time and I think both came out of it much more relaxed and happy with life than we'd gone in. You can watch the glee when she gets a bamboo skewer away from me and breaks it into little pieces...
Once her ass and tits were bright (bright) red, we moved to the second part of the scene, a hard flogging. The focus of that was all about gratifying her, honestly, and I was happy to. The fundamental thing about flogging once you get past all the technical stuff is finding the right rhythm. There's the overall scene shape which you can view as an up and down rhythm of intensity, and the more specific timing and intensity of strokes to get someone where you're both trying to go. I spent some time exploring to find the right one with her, and she struggled with it, started crying pretty early on. We worked through the tears to cathartic release and orgasm for her, then some gentle aftercare and a good interview about her experience.
This was the first time I got to play with a Big Name Bondage Model. ^-^ I have joined sites in the past because Madison Young was on them, so I started out a little nervous. Once we got going though, this was a pleasantly rough shoot. We actually did two more scenes with her that day, and she was quite well marked up going into them (Lauren had her for scene #2, and was not happy with me), and for the next several days.
This was only my second time shooting with someone I hadn't played with off-camera, so I started out with my usual roughhousing, manhandling her against the wall (note the padding we put up, we'd done most of our shoots to date in the basement of a house Lauren and I lived in which had a concrete wall that I miss fiercely), some breath play, fucking her mouth with my fingers and slapping her face. Basically, my various favorite getting-to-know-you things mixed in with tearing her clothes off. Once we were going, I flogged the heck out of her front, then brought her to the floor for some good hard pussy spanking.
The entertaining thing about the flogging... The scene actually starts out a little slow because I a) was just getting to know her, and b) was perhaps a little star-struck. Once I figured out that really it was okay to hurt her though, I made a plan. I'd get her adrenaline really going with a jolt of serious sting (she'd said she liked sting), then back down to a warmup level and ramp up from there. So, I chose a nice stingy flogger, and snapped it (i.e. just the tips) against some sensitive belly skin. She didn't blink. I thought "hmm, maybe I misjudged and was a little short and it just sounded like the tips landed," and moved in a little for the next couple strokes. Still casual conversation. Double hmmm... Okay, let's work the Same Damn Spot like that, without a break between. Finally started to get some good breaths and pain processing around that point, but I was about ready to look at my flogger to see if it was broken somehow. ^-^ Madison has both a high pain threshold, and very good pain processing skills (which are two separate and more-or-less unrelated things).
So the scene escalated from there. Something that I'm fond of is using surface sting on areas you wouldn't normally hit. Transmitting thud into someone's (for instance) kidneys via a solid flogger stroke to the kidneys is A Really Bad Thing. Using a horsehair flogger to turn that same area bright red without transmitting much force beneath the surface can be really fun, on the other hand. Similarly, using a 'popping' throw to lick the sensitive skin of a pretty girl's belly with fire gets me hot. Madison is a natural redhead, so she started pinking up quickly. There's a nice moment (about 13:05 on the video) where you can see her really start to get into it- I'm working down toward her pubic mound and she spreads her legs and pushes her hips forward. That made me very happy at the time, and it still does.
One problem eventually occurred though- we had two more scenes planned with her, and she was shooting with someone else the next day. So, we'd planned not a lot of marks. I gauged the intensity of what we were doing based on where she was at, how her processing was going, rather than on the degree to which I was marking the heck out of her from thighs to breasts. We got a good intense scene going- she actually cried, which she said had only happened once before in a shoot. Eventually though, we were at the edge of starting to draw blood, and I was getting concerned about the marks lasting (and the need for more easily disinfect-able toys). She was still good to go, but I also thought I should probably leave something for the next two scenes. I didn't want to just drop the scene, so I thought about ways to briefly max her out to properly end it...
Madison Young can take a _really_ hard cunt-slapping. I said something to the effect of "Let's find out how hard I can hit your cunt," and escalated from rapid little stingy slaps, up to bringing my hand down just about as hard as I though was safe. She took that, held her legs apart for me, and had I think a great time of it. After a while, I realized that she wasn't going to tell me to stop anytime soon, and that Lauren would kill me if I broke her for the rest of the day, and called it. I'd still love to go back and continue that part of the scene. I've spanked the heck out of her pussy since, (see part 1 of Madison in Trouble) but the intensity there was more about how long I was doing it, and the angle was more surface. This time was just broad straight-in impact, with a 'how hard can you take it' dynamic, I'd love to do a scene around that if I shoot with her again.
The camera is a little shaky at times- I edited this quite a while ago, and I didn't want to lose any of the good bits. This was also our first shoot using multiple cameras. Running more than one video camera is really handy, especially when you're doing as much real-time play as we do. If you're constantly stopping and starting and staging you can get different angles and it doesn't matter if the camera person was moving during that one beautiful moment. You really get nothing remotely like the kind of connection we like that way though, and it's much less fun for everyone. With two cameras running, you can cut back and forth to cover when one of the cameras jerks around switching angles, and show much more of the scene the way it happened.
whew... I kind of went on, but I thought there was a lot interesting about this scene. Hopefully you will too.
I've joined more than one web site in the past just to look at naughty pictures of Claire Adams. So when she moved in with the House of Gord folks a couple years ago, I was really excited to get to meet her (my day job is making their computers behave). They live a ferry ride away though, so I didn't really get to hang with her much. She moved away to LA before we started doing Two Big Meanies, but eventually she came back to visit! We got to shoot, had a great time, and Lauren and I are so going to be fighting over who gets to play with her next time she's up here. ^-^
We did sort of a two-and-a-half part scene. The 'half' was us just warming up roughhousing around a bit. Claire's a contortionist, so wrestling her was interesting... The middle part of the scene was very simple endurance play- her alternating between standing with her arms out to her side, and doing pushups, while I 'helped' (I somehow gather pushups are more difficult with a TENS unit holding the sole of your foot in a cramp). The last part of the scene was me doing some _mean_ things to her with electricity, starting with her toes zip-tied to the fence back behind her head...
I think the endurance play edited down very nicely- obviously we don't want to show the whole thing ("here we are waiting for her muscles to get tired"), but there ended up being plenty of interplay to keep it interesting. What we set up, more or less, was that she'd hold her arms out to her side, until she wanted a break which she could get by doing ten pushups, after which she'd go back to holding her arms out. I'd do really painful things to her feet to keep her motivated during the pushups (I'm not a foot fetishist, but that ended up being the theme somehow)- mostly TENS unit and pokey-zappy-thing, with some impact play. I also had fun experimenting with pushing her arms up or down, and punishing her if they got too far from 90 degrees. We did this for quite a long time, she was thoroughly exhausted by the time we were finished- it edited down to around twenty minutes but went on a lot longer.
The assorted electrical play in the second part is probably some of the most intense fear and pain play we've had on the site. She's tough and we connected well, we took that and ran with it. We started out with her lying on her back, with her legs stretched up and apart over her head and behind her, and I used zipties to fasten her toes to some chainlink fencing attached to the wall. She then recited 'this little piggy' while I shocked each of her toes with the pokey-zappy-thing (like an electric flyswatter, but meaner). Eventually I moved down the backs of her legs, and took advantage of her spread-open pose with it. One of the advantages that toy has over the flyswatter (besides being able to reach into small sensitive places), is that you use it a couple different ways. If you charge it up, then touch it to someone's skin, the electricity arcs across, making a nice painful POP. If you touch it to someone's skin, _then_ charge it, it more directly triggers the muscle. You'll understand why these are so handy if you watch the video; there's a fair amount of screaming and tears involved.
I slid the electrified speculum into her while she was still spread and attached to the wall, but had her stand up before we started doing anything with it. The idea I started with was to have her walk and try to hold it in while I used it to shock her, but she had no challenge at all keeping it in with just muscle tension. So change of plans, just her and I playing with anticipation and pain. One of my favorite parts of the video is in here, it's fairly subtle and perhaps easy to miss in with all the other flashy stuff. It's an extended closeup of her mascara-streaked face, starting with her nodding at me to go ahead and turn it up again, gradually shifting as she struggles with it more and more, then screaming, then a wonderful Moment with her holding my hand against her chest as I turn it down. We pushed hard in the last third of this shoot. It might look scary but we were both _really_ good to go, Claire had a great time. We actually played even a bit harder than what's on the video and could have gone further, but I knew we weren't going to be able to use the footage. :/ I'm hoping we'll get a chance to play off-camera next time she's up, in addition to more shoots!
She also gave us a very good exit interview talking about her experience of the scene- we do this with pretty much all our shoots, but some stand out (Candy's another one). Claire is smart, articulate, enjoys and thinks about what she does, and I felt really fortunate to have the opportunity to play with her.
It was gawdawful hot when we shot this, and I wasn't looking forward to wrestling around in front of all the hot lights. We came up with a good plan, though- a whole scene built almost entirely around ice and water. We started with my usual roughhousing against the wall (plus the first time we used the pokey-zappy-thing!), but once she was thoroughly soaked switched to hard impact play and penetration with a big camo-colored cock, combined in various ways with cold water, hot water, and a couple hundred pounds of cold ice.
This was the first time Rose Algren and I had played together, so the initial smacking-her-around-against-a-wall bit of the scene was important for us both to get a feel for each other. Rose looks pretty femme, but she's tough in my favorite way- she likes to push hard. You can also hit her nice and hard (no idea how long those bruises on her thighs lasted), but the fun part for me is someone who'll let you take them to tears and stay right there with you. Rose also bounces back really fast, which is entertaining- you can do something that hurts so much she'll be in tears, but give her a few seconds to recover and she'll be giggling and asking you to do it again. As we've gotten to know each other I've figured out more of how she works, but that first bit of our first scene is hot to watch.
We did a lot of different stuff over the course of this shoot, even edited down pretty aggressively it's long. Trying to motivate her to let me use the pokey-zappy-thing on her crotch was fun. I used a metal ruler for this, and came back to it periodically- slapping her pubic mound with it left some pretty marks. Spanking her breasts with it as we were working toward the end of the scene, I was tapping pretty lightly until she said "you should really hit me with that thing." You'll be amused by what she did immediately afterwards, of course... :/
We did a bunch of wrestling around with me trying to apply blocks of ice to various portions of her anatomy, holding her down in the ice while drenching her with hot and/or cold water, and that worked great. Fucking her while she was on hands and knees over the ice didn't work super well, but using a light foam bat to beat the base of the dildo later went swimmingly.
One tricky thing about all the water and ice play was that our only location for it at the time was the shower at the Wet Spot. This meant that Rose and I were crammed in to a smallish room, along with lights and three camera people. This was actually quite challenging but I think we pulled it off. Working in three dimensions made it- Maxx was running one video camera from the top of a ladder in one corner, Red was running the other tucked low in to a different corner, Kurt was running around taking stills and trying to stay out of everyone's way (although he did catch his camera strap on one of the shower handles as he was creeping under it, leading to an inadvertent shower). I'm not even sure how Maxx managed to survive up near the ceiling with the lights going...
We've done a lot of fun shoots over the past few years, and I have accumulated tons of great memories, but if I had to pick a very favorite, this would probably be it. This may also be the hardest I've ever pushed someone on a first scene, but Candy's and my connection was so good and she was so very articulate about her wants and needs that it just made sense to take us both where we wanted to go!
Candy and I have known each other for years, drifting around in the same sea of local perverts, but we had never played together before this scene. We both began to regret that wasted time when we got together to negotiate this shoot and realized that we were, in her words, "almost the same person." Our conversation revealed that we like to play in nearly identical ways, to the same levels of intensity and for the same reasons. That promised well for our scene--a promise that was amply born out.
Both of us forgot that the cameras were rolling pretty much immediately. We played hard and happy and with great chemistry until we were both completely worn out. I pushed her to tears a number of times, so if you like crying, this shoot will please you!
I started by securing her to the chain link fence with cable ties. That's intense, narrow bondage, but she looked gorgeous in it. Candy is a personal trainer, and I wanted to showcase all those lovely muscles.
I didn't use a lot of toys on her--I wanted the intimacy that hands-on torment can create. I warmed her up with faceslapping, hairpulling, deep muscle grabs, and solid impact from a pair of sap gloves. (The gloves, thick black leather with lead shot sewn into the knuckles, are among my favorite things EVER. They make a lot of appearances on the site.)
Whenever things got almost too intense, I switched to knifeplay, tracing the blade along her skin. That brought her back to me each time--another thing that Candy and I have in common is a love of pointy things. ("It's like sex for me," she said during our negotiations, pretty much guaranteeing that I'd use it at any opportunity!)
I also ran a couple of "zippers," rubber-tipped clothespins strung together on a line, underneath her breasts. I knew that those would be challenging for her to take. She doesn't process clamps as well as she does impact, but she took them beautifully. Her reaction to their abrupt removal was gorgeous, and inspired me to put them to the side to use again before we finished.
We took a bit of a break to rehydrate and snack. I was anxious to get back to it, though, and I think she was, too. When we began again, I asked her to extend one leg out against the fence as far as she could comfortably maintain it, and then used the flex cuffs above and below her knee to secure it there. That position left her cunt extremely exposed, which was just what I had in mind.
Once I was certain that she was safely bound, I started slapping her cunt, medium-hard at first, and gradually increasing in intensity. I told her that when she had absolutely had as much as she could take, to tell me and I would stop...but I would re-attach the zippers, this time beginning on the tender skin under her arms. She had told me before we shot that clamps under her arms were extremely tough for her to take, and usually made her burst instantly into tears.
She made herself take the cunt-slapping for a long time, pushing with everything she had and visibly struggling with it toward the end. By the time she asked me to stop, she was crying hard. The zippers brought out a fresh bout of tears as they were going on, so you can imagine (or better yet, watch!) how they were coming off.
I cut her bondage and brought her to the ground to cuddle while she bounced back to give a post-shoot interview. I was every bit as endorphin-high as she was by the end of things!
I devoutly hope that we get to have Candy back again soon. Russell has shot with her since we did this one (check out Reaction Shot if you want to see another hella hot scene with this yummy woman), but I haven't gotten my hands on her in too long. *g*

Still working our way through the back catalog. :) We've only had one response to my 'any requests' post, which was somebody who wanted everything we've ever done with Rose. We'll get it all out eventually, but here's one for now. Any other requests for particular shoots from our back catalog that aren't up yet?

Edgy-but-also-playful scene with Rose Algren and me, two parts. First, chasing her around partly restrained, using mean floggers on whatever I could reach, then her mummified with her legs spread for some intense genital play.
When we started shooting at Lydia's studio, one of the things I was most excited about was the sockets for eyebolts set into the floor! I'd wanted to do this scene for quite a while, but just never had the setup for it. My plan was, attach one of Rose's ankles to a point on the floor, then chase her around. I also wanted to have her hands bound, to make sure some entertaining targets were available. I had a major safety concern, though- if she were to fall, she'd fall hard, on the concrete, and be unable to catch herself. She and I were talking over coffee a few days beforehand, planning the scene and trying to figure out a way to make that work safely, and she had an idea. Being pretty competent with rope, what if she were to do a suspension harness attached to the point in the ceiling immediately above the floor eyebolt? This way she had a little play, but even if her feet went one direction and her head the other, she'd just end up hanging from the ceiling. It worked wonderfully- safety concern dealt with, we were able to play nice and hard and not have to worry about it.
This worked great- she did a chest harness that covered as little as possible, and I spent the next hour or so chasing her around with Terrible Implements. She had some amount of play, so could turn and twist while I circled around her- it ended up being very kinetic and lots of fun for both of us. We played hard- afterwards Lauren and I were concerned that it was too intense, so we edited a bit differently than usual. Rather than breaking out witty banter, etc, into an outtakes clip we kept it all inline, so you can see how fast Rose bounces back and how much fun she was having. Definitely not light play- tears, etc.
After doing that for quite a while (edited down to about the first half hour of the video), we switched to part two of the scene. The first bit was super dynamic, with all the twisting different bits away from said Implements, for the second part we used pallet wrap (heavy-duty plasticwrap), a sawhorse-type thing, and a spreader bar to get her about as immobile and exposed as any bondage I've ever done. If I remember correctly, she'd said over coffee something like "I've never met genitorture I didn't like." ^-^

Lucy is, by far, the brattiest brat I have ever encountered. Seriously. I am known, in the circles where I am known, as something of a brat myself, but Lucy puts me to shame. She's a lot of work for any top (which is why the hand and foot bondage), but she's also a lot of fun and cuteness, which more than makes up for it.
This shoot sprang out of a couple of last-minute changes. You can read some of the backstory in the blog entry for "More than a Handful", actually. We'd had to cancel one shoot with an out-of-town model who hadn't noticed that her passport was expired, then stopped another shoot early because Lucy+Nikki+no plan=chaos of a sort that wasn't working well. Finally, we decided that Lucy and I should have a go at it.
I had watched Russell and Lucy shoot a few weeks before, and had learned a couple of things.
- Either I was gonna need a lot of bondage or a lot of energy or both.
- Russell is a softy.
She got away with so much in that shoot that I threatened to rename the site "One Big Meanie and One Giant Pushover". (Though to be fair, it was also a VERY hot scene.) I figured that she needed to pay for some of her misdeeds, and that's the idea that we carried through our scene.
I made her name off the ways in which she had misbehaved, and then punished her for each one. There was a lot of impact with whips and thumpy things, a lot of redhead skin turning pleasingly pink and red, and a lot of Lucy testing to see what she could get away with (not much, as it turned out.)
We finished up with some ice water play. We'd shot this in the middle of the summer, under hot lights, so we both needed to cool off! It was intense stuff, though, and it brought Lucy to tears once. By the time we wrapped we were both happy, floppy, and mellow. I THOUGHT. However, Lucy wasn't as tired and docile as she appeared, and I let my guard down too soon...
I won't say any more. Just watch the video. And yes, there WILL be a rematch.
