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!

I love shooting with Dreina! She's smart, sassy, sexy, and a TOTAL wiseass. Her mouth is constantly writing checks that her ass can't cover, which is just about the way I like it. Not that I need an excuse to hurt her, really, but it's nice to feel justified. *g*
Also, she and I have been friends forever, so the chemistry is really good and the communication is really solid, which makes for some hot scenes. This particular one was our first time playing together on-camera, and one of my favorites overall.
We started off with me using flex cuffs to secure her to the rack so that she'd be nice and still while I cut her clothes into tiny shreds with my knife. Once she was exposed, I had a lot of fun flogging, slapping and caning her breasts!
She got VERY tender and sore in that area after a while, so I kindly alternated with some strokes of the horsehair and rubber whips to her cunt. I'm a helper.
I saved the most fun part for last--at least, the most fun for me.
I'm not exactly sure why cute, naked girls are even more cute when they're soaked and sputtering, but they are. It's one of the great mysteries of life. Hosing Dreina down with a huge squirtgun , aiming for her mouth when she made smart comments (so, like, several times a minute) was intensely gratifying. It also had the added bonus of making the last few minutes of impact sting even more.
By this time we were both pretty done in, so I toweled her off and took her out of bondage. There was some entertaining rough scrubbing in the process. :) All in all, it was a most satisfying afternoon's work!
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.

People either love or hate this shoot. It's one of the half-dozen or so we launched the old membership site with- Lauren didn't care for it, I liked it, a couple of our beta testers liked it a _lot_. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to shoot with Sadee again until pretty recently. Sadee was petrified of the video camera thus was kind of quiet, but we had good chemistry and did a bunch of fun stuff. We also had a nice D/s dynamic, similar to our more recent shoot.
The scene is kind of two parts- the first is about what you'd expect from me, a pretty girl, and a concrete wall to work off of. Manhandling, flogging, a fair bit of flogging her tits with some horsehair, etc... The second part was prompted by it being really hot in there- small basement, summertime, hot lights. I had some chain I'd put in the freezer at the start of the shoot that I pulled out and tormented her with- pressing it against her various sensitive bits, some interesting impact, and eventually creating a body harness once it had warmed up a bit.
This was a while ago, I had to go back and re-watch the video to remember what the heck we did. I'd forgotten that I spent so much time as I did hitting her cunt with the chain, that was pretty hot. Half-inch chain has some good thud to it even if you swing it VERY VERY GENTLY. (If you try something like this make sure the chain isn't too cold- think of what happens when you lick a flagpole. Also, be mindful of the chain pinching. ^-^)
For some reason Sadee and I hit a really good Dominant/submissive dynamic that presents itself well on-camera, moreso than my other shoots I think. Partly that might be because I'm much more sadistic than dominant, but also it seems like the play partners I end up shooting with are more on the bratty side *coughlucycough* and tough to find that with in the short time we spend in front of the camera. Anyway, Sadee brings it out and I'm happy to be able to share that bit of what we do.
Playing with Dreina is always a great pleasure for me. We have happy, effortless chemistry (the result of years of off-camera friendship) and a fun sadist and brat dynamic. :) She's willing to try just about anything and she loves impact play, which is definitely a bonus! She's one of my favorite bottoms for doing lighthearted, silly-but-intense scenes with - scenes like this one, in fact.
I thought that it would be entertaining to put a new use to my gaming dice. (I can hear you snickering. Stop it.) I assigned a body part to each value on the 6 sided die, a mean striking implement to each side of the 4 sided, and used a 12 sided die to determine number of strokes. Of course, I cheated outrageously, but Dreina wasn't really in a place to complain. *g*
I had a nice big chart that helped make it look as though I wasn't just making up the rules as I went along. I was, of course, but the chart made it seem like everything was above board. We started off with a pre-scene interview and a review of the rules** of the game.
I did actually have one "hard and fast" game rule: that anytime Dreina made a smart ass comment, I was going to paddle her mercilessly. If you've seen any of the shoots that we've done with her previously, you'll know that this was akin to telling her that she was going to be in trouble every time she inhaled.
Once I had her firmly attached to the ceiling, I gave her a taste of a few of the different implements so that she would know what the stakes were - no, that's a lie. I just like swatting her.
The first implement that came up was the paddle, a toy that Dreina is intimately familiar with. The thin synthetic cane that followed it was a new sensation for her, though! It's some of the most pure, wicked sting that you can imagine, and it's light enough to use on delicate areas. It leaves lovely welts, too.
Somehow, Dreina kept rolling 12's--the highest amount of strokes possible. Isn't that strange? Of course, I might have been helping the dice along... just a bit.
She also kept rolling for canes, so she was developing some nice stripes all over that lovely skin by mid-scene. When it seemed like a short break from impact play was called for, I chased her around with the "poky-zappy thingy." It's too bad that the lights were too bright to capture the sparks arcing from the tip of it, but at least we got the sounds (both the *pop* of the toy and the indignant noises from the girl) on the video.
This went on for quite a bit--she'd roll the dice, I'd change them to whatever number suited me, she'd complain, I'd paddle her for complaining, and then I'd swat her nice and hard with a cane, paddle, flogger, or my hands.
Earlier in the shoot, Dreina had promised me that she would give me anything I wanted in exchange for refraining from I-don't-remember-what-dastardly-act. I decided that what I really wanted "anything" to consist of was tethering down one ankle and then slapping her cunt a bunch. I knew that it would be tough for her to process--all the impact we did there had been--but I also knew that she could do it and that seeing her struggle would be extra-hot.
We finished up with something satisfying for me (chasing her with the aforementioned zappy thing) and something satisfying for her (spinning around while being flogged with horsehair, kind of automatic-carwash-style). We were both too done in by then to wind things up to a dramatic climax (or any kind of climax, really; I guess we'll save the big vibrator for the next shoot), but we ended with smiles and laughter and with both of us wanting to play again, which is even better in my book.
**I get to do whatever I want and you get to take it because you're chained to the ceiling.
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." ^-^
This is one of the most recent shoots that we did, the last one that went live before we transitioned from subscriber site to pay-per-download. A lot of our subscribers expired before we put it up, so we had some immediate requests for it to go into the store!
Rose Algren is really, REALLY fun to play with. She has a great, impish attitude and she makes some of the best faces EVER. Also, she's hot. *g* Lucky us, she's also local, so we've worked with her a bunch (and hope to do more in the future!)
This particular scene can be summed up as "put the pretty girl into bondage and then hit her with mean things a lot." Most of the implements that I used on her were singletail-ish (thus the title), but there's also some paddling of various bits and some hands-on deep muscle grabs. I wasn't feeling particularly "toppy" during this scene, just happy and sadistic. Fortunately, that's a headspace that works well for both of us.
I was pushing her with sensation. Rose likes thud more than she does sting, but she had also expressed a desire to cry, and I wanted to do my best! We never got to tears, but not from a lack of intensity--sometimes the waterworks just aren't there. We DID get to orgasm, from hard, rhythmic cunt-slapping, which is just as nice a way to end a scene in my book!
This is another of our medium-older scenes- the first one with Nikki, and one of the first two-camera shoots (the first ones were tbm11a/b/c with Madison). Nikki is a play partner of mine in real life, we had a blast. We both love to wrestle, she weighs maybe 70-80 pounds less than I do but is nice and tough. That's a good combination because it means that a) I'm going to win a lot, and take advantage of her while I do, and b) she can take it. It did end up being more of a challenge than I'd expected because she's _extra_ bendy. I'd put her in some inescapable arm bar, and she'd just turn around and poke me. ^-^ There's plenty of good banter and playfulness during the wrestling, mixed in with some good rough play.
So here's an entertaining thing- Nikki can get off from being flogged. Flogging is one of my most favorite things to do, I teach occasional classes even. We'd played a number of times before this. But I'd never touched her with a flogger before this shoot. I have no idea why, we've made up for it repeatedly since then. ^-^
We tried something silly-but-fun in the middle of this shoot, between the wrestling and the flogging (hmm, somewhere else in there was her getting a nice orgasm from my hand while up against the rack). I've got a gatling-gun-type toy that shoots foam rubber darts (made by a huge company with scary attack lawyers that probably don't want me to use their name). I tied Nikki spread-eagled to the rack and used her naked body for rubber-dart target practice, and oh-my-god-the-fun! She was more on the 'amused' end of the scale, except for when the darts hit particularly sensitive bits, but I could have done that for _days_.
One other random observation that doesn't really fit in anywhere- Nikki does this thing when she's having a hard time (not necessarily a bad hard time, I've see her do it when she's about to come a few times). Her lower lip sticks out and trembles visibly, it's one of the sexiest things I've ever seen, and completely unconscious. Doesn't come across at all in stills, but it is beautiful on video.
(edited to add: yes, for those of you who keep track of such things: this is Amber Keen's very first porn shoot. )
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.
