Archives BBS Year in Review, Bondage in 2017

Here we are!  Drawing to the end of another year.  As usual, I am not the biggest fan of looking back; I’d rather look forward, and there’s a whole lot to look forward to.  But since this is a retrospective, I’ll indulge in just a touch of summary and nostalgia.

I’d like to note that 2016 ended with 3 really strong videos, Female Slave, Lot 3209 with Tilly McReese, Sent for Bondage 2 with Paisley Prince, and The Prisoner 6 with Vika.  These videos incorporated more “adult” elements than previous videos, but also maintaining high and unique standards of plot and costuming.

“Sent for Bondage 3”:

The first video of 2017, “Sent for Bondage 3” maintains this tradition.  There is tight security throughout, and the very sexy acting of Paisley, but also 4 new outfits that were obtained specifically for the shooting.  Corporal punishment, penis gags, a plastic punishment skirt, all combine in one sexy package in this very successful video.

For those photo geeks among you, I completely changed my gear in March of 2017.  I switched from Nikon (my camera was a Nikon D750) to Sony (a 42 MP AR7ii).  I also upgraded from my old trusty Novatron lights to a more modern wireless, rechargeable mono-light system.  It was a big investment, and risky.  Nikon is a great system, and I sold my entire system to go to Sony.

Of course, the camera does not make the photograph; the photographer makes the photograph, but the detail and size of images from the Sony AR7ii are incredible.

So, the first shooting with the new system was:

Anonymous Bondage Witness 2:

Anonymous Bondage Witness 2 with Jill RichardsAdd to Cart

This plot concept was first done with Vika in 2013, and this edition involves a District Attorney, Jill Richards, who has to enter her own strict bondage witness protection program and be kept in captivity by the boorish and foolish Marshal.

Jill Richards took a wry approach and totally nailed the joke!

In addition to Jill’s great acting ability and knowing humor, she is very flexible in that her elbows could easily be tied behind her back, and she was able to handle the full-size ball-gag and the full-size penis gag without difficulty.

Shibari on Archives BBS

Now, I have to note that I began formal shibari, that is, Japanese bondage training in May of 2017.  I have been dissatisfied with the aesthetics of my tying and now I really know why.  I can appreciate the somewhat crude, makeshift tying of a quick “wrists crossed and tied behind the back” that I grew up with from Men’s Magazines (the old 60’s tabloids with the beautifully illustrated covers) and comic books, and mainstream televisions and movies.

There is a real problem with this type of bondage, however, that I won’t go into here.  Some people, like Jay Edwards, and Lew Rubens have taken this type of “western” rope bondage to a very high level, and I really admire their work.

But, the Japanese have refined the art of bondage, specifically, sexual and captivity bondage over centuries.  American (English), or “western” bondage is a tradition that really only goes back to the 1950’s.  Now, don’t; worry, I’m not abandoning this style completely, but beginning with “The Prisoner 6 with Vika” where my first efforts at shibari are evident, you’ll start to see beautiful carefully, securely, and hopefully beautifully trussed up in jute!

The Prisoner 6:

The 6th edition of “The Prisoner, with Vika, was a new departure in that the plot is built on the relationship that was established between Marshal and the prisoner, Vika in The Prisoner 5.

The Prisoner 6 with VikaAdd to Cart

Having escaped from custody in the previous Prisoner 5, Vika is subjected to much tighter security, and the video starts out with her in a straitjacket and a canvas straitjacket helmet under which she is wearing a ball-gag.  This entire bondage sequence had to be filmed separately, and it appears as an “adder” at the end of the video.

Vika is subjected to forced handcuffed marching both nude and wearing court clothes and also she wears a sexy yandy.com “I Dream of Jeannie” costume.

This is the first video where actual shibari ropework is used.

We end the year with two new models.  I guess you all may have concluded that I love models with long hair.  I guess that’s just the way most beautiful young women wear their hair.  Taylor, whose hair is in a cute pixie-cut show us just how beautiful a woman can be with shorter hair!

Female Slave – Lot 4718:

Female Slave – Lot 4718 – Taylor: Add to Cart

Taylor makes a very convincing case as a student loan slave.  She looks a lot like Sophia Loren, in my opinion, she has beautiful breasts and a stunning hour-glass figure, she looks great in vintage outfits, and can easily handle a full-size 2 1/4 inch ball-gag!

All female slaves are gagged before they begin their pitch - Taylor is no exception!

Taylor instinctively holds her wrists behind her back in a beautiful way when locked in handcuffs, and she is an experienced shibari bottom.  It should be no surprise that she commands north of seven figures when she is sold at auction!

Hurricane Harvey:

In August 2017, the Houston area, where I live, had almost 50 inches of rain.  This caused devastating flooding, and many people’s homes (and by many, I mean tens of thousands) were flooded with several feet of water.

My own home suffered from flooding, although I am thankful that this was minimal compared to what others are still dealing with.

I can tell you, seeing water slowly but inexorably rising, approaching your home is a frightening and sobering thing.  The flooding didn’t come without warning, however, and I was able to mitigate property damage.

There was one night when I was truly concerned that my entire life’s photographic work could be wiped out.   After all, if a body of water rises 22 feet, what’s to stop it from rising 30 feet?

And, I am a person who is very careful about backup strategies.  I just never imagined that an entire geographic area could flood, until now.

I have probably published about 1/20th of all the photographs I have taken.  I have taken steps to backup in the cloud.  I am not sure why I am telling the public this, but if you have secure access to IT infrastructure, and could host an archival backup of my work to date, please contact me by commenting below.

The Prisoner 7:

Another new model to Archives BBS rounds out the year’s bondage  in 2017 review video offerings.  Beautiful Brianne Blu is a stunning blonde with the loveliest face, long blonde hair, and beautiful blue eyes.

She is short of temper though, and she doesn’t put up with Marshal’s bumbling incompetence as she is escorted to Dallas for her custody and security status hearing.

The Prisoner 7 – Brianne Blu Add to Cart

Brianne is subject to forced marching, handcuffs (of course!), tight ropework, head-bagging, Gorean Slave Training, and she makes 2 escape attempts, one right at the beginning of the film, and the next one tied up nude in bed.

Don’t miss this beautiful young woman, locked up and in transport as a bondage prisoner!

Sometimes female prisoners are deceptive and wily, like Brianne Blue in "The Prisoner 7". Even though she is tightly tied up at her wrists and elbows, she still flashes a fetching smile!

It’s been a great year!  I hope I continue to gain your subscribership and your interest as a video producer.  I do truly appreciate all your support.

Happy New Year, and please look for our stunning new video release shortly after the first of the year!

3 Tight Bondage Positions for Kobe Lee – re-issued and extended

When the “3 Tight Positions for Kobe Lee” video was released in 2012, we all were still dealing with the restrictions posed by physical DVD’s that dictated a little over 1 hour at good compression.

Please see the updated “3 Tight Bondage Positions for Kobe Lee” product page for more information, a video preview, and images.

You can order direct from here:

I was reviewing older videos to see what compromises I had made and found that I had left out over 40 minutes of tight bondage content on this video when it was issued due to the time limitations.

One large segment was a wonderful discussion with Kobe, who was nude in shackles as we discussed the results of a survey taken on the Archives BBS Yahoo List.

Another long segment was a plastic head-bag segment that I was doing during the days of the “Incarceration Station” shooting location.

Kobe Lee starts out very confident that she can escape the tight bondage positions, but as each one proves more and more difficult, not only does she realize that she will remain in debt, but that she will also receive the painful swats!  In addition, she also faces the prospect that she will be sent to prison!

Archives BBS Year in Review – 2014

I frequently try to do a “year in review” but often I’m so busy on the 1st with other matters I never get around to it!  Well not this year.  Here is it, 2015 and I’m in front of my keyboard typing!

First, I’ll talk about the videos.  As most of you know, video production drives a lot of the content on the member site as well as the public site.   So, let’s cover that first, and I think some of you might be interested in the infrastructure changes, but I’ll leave that to the end.

As always, it’s the subscribers who have access to all the Archives BBS content.

So, here are the 4 video releases in 2014:

Bondage Scenes 2 with Vika – This was Vika’s second video, with the popular Anonymous Bondage Witness dating back to December of 2013.  Vika is a fabulous story improviser, and her versatility is on full display in this fun video.  There are 3 main story-lines, each one fun to see!

The Prisoner 3 – Fabulous new model for Archives, Kylie K. is featured in this super-fun “Prisoner” template video.  Kyle K.  is a wonderful actress, and plays a “double intention” of trying to be nice to her Marshall and at the same time, thinking that he is a real jerk to keep her in bondage.  She tries on outfits that she will wear before the judge and her foxy body with womanly D-cup breasts are a real eyeful!  She gets irritated with her treatment and plots a turnabout on her Marshall in the final scenes!

Female Slave – Lot 782 – Megan is just one of those young ladies who comes with everything included.  What a beauty! She is a new model for Archives and really did a great job.  She is also very lithesome and elbows can easily touch and be tightly corded behind her back.  In addition, a ball-gag “sits” perfectly in her mouth and she does not get claustrophobic when she is headbagged.  She was the first model to try the “Female Slave” idea, and she really did a great job!

Female Slave – Lot 830 – I never had to say “One more time, with feeling” to Mary!  She took right to the story of a female student in student debt, and the idea that she could be sold as a slave to have all the debt forgiven.  Mary is an athletically blessed young lady, and she is kept under very tight restrictions throughout the video.  Also, she easily accommodates a full-size ball-gag tightly strapped!   This video was released tight at the end of 2014 and it seems to have been very well received!

Would I deprive you of images?  No indeed – just click on the smaller image for full-size detailed image.

A few other matters of a more infrastructure/technical nature. In July of 2014 I was given just a few days’ notice that my provider was discontinuing their MS Windows server service, and I would have to convert all my FileFinder scripts to PHP and MySQL. After my panic subsided, I looked around and found an excellent programmer among my circle of friends here in Houston. The month of August was not the best for updates, but the service emerged in September with an entirely new, UNIX based infrastructure. I am very happy because it’s very fast, stable and it also has excellent management tools.

Also, in December, I converted the www.archw.com site (the public site) to a UNIX based, WordPress site (which you are reading right now!).

Why am I telling you this? It’s because the less I have to worry about operations and technical matters, the more time I have to edit video, photos, negotiate with models, and generally produce content. That’s what I’m hoping for 2015! New models, established models (like Kobe Lee and Vika!) higher quality video, and just more fun in 2015. Stay tuned, my friends, stay tuned.

The 2-Gig barrier: What’s a Bondage Video Producer to Do?

Many of us remember the times when a megabyte was a “big” file?  I do!  I also remember when I paid $400.00 for a 20-megabyte hard drive which was such a luxury because I didn’t have to use floppy disks.

It’s my opinion that “hard” media is dead.  That’s rich coming from me, who spent hours in the Houston July heat shipping CD-ROMs and DVD’s to customers from 1996 to 2014 when I ceased to offer these formats.  And I thank you all for your orders!

OK, now I am going to present a gallery of bound women. But, please read the educational (promotional, informative, strategic) content to the end!

But for years, I have offered content in downloadable format.  First WMV, then finally MP4.

I’d like to review  few videos and the formats and file sizes.

Bondage Weekend Wager – WMV – 466 Meg
Dungeon Girls 1 – WMV – 799 Meg
Coin Toss Bondage 2 – MP4 – 969 Meg
The Prisoner 2 – MP4 – 1224 Meg = 1.2 Gig
Slave Coffle – MP4 – 1500 Meg = 1.5 Gig
Female Slave – Lot 830 – MP4 – 2700 Meg = 2.7 Gig

With each file size, videos got longer, and with Bondage Coffle, we went from the 780 x 480 pixel format of DV (and DVD) to the 1920 x 1080 format of HD.  This was a huge jump in processing power demanded of the client PC and the video card, but a MUCH better overall experience for the viewer.

OK, here’s the thing.  Notice that Female Slave, Lot 830 is over 2 Gig.  So was Female Slave – Lot 782 and The Prisoner 3 with Kylie K.  I am going to have to “recast” these videos as multiple files because people have trouble downloading file greater than 2 Gig.

I anticipate that all upcoming large-form video content will be presented in multiple files of between 1 and 1.8 Gig, totally significantly over 2 Gig, possibly up to 5 or more Gig.

How do you play the “whole thing”.  It’s simple – in your video player, simply set up a play list with the files in the proper order!

But often, where a limitation is imposed, an opportunity presents itself.  If I have to split up the files, why not have a 5 Gig offering, or even a 10 Gig offering?

For instance, the footage taken of Olivia on 5/4/2011 is over 2.5 hours long – it was published for the membership (click to subscribe) of Archives BBS, but this could be published to individual purchasers in 2 – 4 files totaling over 4 Gig.

A similar situation exists for “Incarceration Station #1 and #2.  They were published to the membership because there was no practical solution to providing a 2 + hour video at the time it was filmed.  They contains footage of a particularly irritated Jenni as somewhat cruel bondage is imposed on her.

The bottom line?  There really is NO LIMIT on the size of programs that can be offered.  Now, some would argue that a 3 minute small, fuzzy video of “just the right” content may be preferable to an omnibus opus of previously unknown length.  But why have a limit?

Let’s use our imagination even more!  What is the size went into some type of optimized combination of QUALITY and LENGTH.

Stay tuned, my friends, stay tuned.

Felix

I would very much appreciate your comments!
