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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
Excerpt from the “Female Prisoner’s Handbook” from HMP Bronzefield.
Very often, when a criminal proceeding has been taken against a person, they are notified by certified mail that they are to appear at a space of incarceration and the held “in remand” until their trial and sentencing. Sometimes this is only a few months, but with the backlog in the court system, this can be as much as a two to three years.
This concept was first related by AdamT when his wife was handcuffed and taken into Remand Custody after a traffic incident.
Female Remand Prisoners, Security level, and associated restrictions

In cell – total darkness
In hallway – for prison errands, etc.
Outside world – may write letters
Outside world – may make phone calls

Wardrobe – outfits for court, etc
Visitation – handcuffs in front
Visitation – handcuffs behind back

Visitation – frequency
Conjugal visits – frequency
All prisoners except minimum will be handcuffed behind their backs, and ironed from their jail cell to court
Guards are permitted to upgrade security level at any time
Guards do not have the discretion to downgrade security level
45 days without incident will earn the prisoner a downgrade in security level, except those convicted of murder and assault
In all conjugal visits, the female prisoner will be handcuffed behind her back and ironed, as well as chained to her bunk by her throat with no more than a 24-inch chain.
Jo sat right next to me as she also looked at the table of restrictions. “Oh my God,” she said, “I’m going to be locked in medium security if I’m on time, but if I’m late, look at the difference if they upgrade me to high security.”
The full details of a young woman who is confined in remand custody are available to purchasers of Remand Custody in Bondage 1 at Amazon.com.
So, there you have it! Well, one of our readers, who is a prison security engineer, has taken it upon himself to create an illustrated table of restraint icons which will give female prisoners a more graphic concept of the restraints that will be imposed on them.
Transportation is a critical time for any prisoner. When a prisoner is out in the free world, the temptation is powerful to just bolt and run! That is why all prisoners must be handcuffed behind her back, even minimum security prisoners.
Visitation time is permitted at varying intervals, but restraints are required. Only relatives by marriage or attorneys may visit prisoners in remand. There was some debate about women being allowed visits from their children and parents as to whether their restraints must remain locked on and it was decided that they must be in their chains. Women may be permitted visits from their husbands, but no boyfriends or live-ins are permitted. A marriage certificate must be on file.
All women, except for minimum security prisoners are chained in their cells. No reading, masturbation, card playing or sex is permitted.
For appearances in court, women are permitted to wear clothes brought by their relatives. Guidelines stress that conservative clothes, such as a nice dress, blouse and skirt, pantyhose and high heels usually make the best impression on a judge and jury. As is clear from the illustration below, women in maximum security remain in their jail issued uniform and are hooded, gagged, and chained.
Instructions are given a jury that just because a woman is shackled and perhaps gagged or hooded, this does not reflect on her guilt or innocence. They are to reflect on the full weight of the evidence against her before issuing their guilty verdict.
Remand prisoners are not required to be confined in their cell for 24 hours per day. When out of their cell, in the common or recreational area, they are restrained as in the following illustration.

Here is a blub about Felix (me) at the amazon.com author page:
Felix Dartmouth has been a provider of photographic, video and text content to the world wide web, published on his own site since opening Archives BBS (www.archw.com) as a dial-up service in 1993.
In the 1980s Felix prepared and submitted manuscripts to House of Milan and Harmony Communications, but was not able to conclude a deal to be published in their popular publications. After the advent of online communications, Felix found a ready audience for his works on his own site, but also on the USENET newsgroups (alt.sex.stories) and (alt.sex.stories.bondage).
As was the custom at the time in these newsgroups, text works were published serially (fragmented) and that format was maintained by Felix for all of his writings. Responding to numerous calls to consolidate the various story-lines into unified “book” format, Felix is beginning to publish on the Kindle Reader. Please look for additional titles in the coming months!
Here are a few nice things that readers have said about Felix Dartmouth’s bondage text writing:
“Re: [ARCHIVE] Felix wins “Best Bondage Writer” – Congratulations, Felix — of all the awards this year, I think yours was the most-deserved in its category. Obviously, nobody campaigned for that stupid “Best Scene from Mainstream Media” category, but in all the other categories, the other commercial webmasters waged relentless campaigns of Usenet spam and self-promotion to drive out the vote for themselves and their models. Your award was classy: a rare case of the clear-cut Best in Show winning on his own merits. Well done!”
“Hello Felix, first and foremost let me wish you a happy new year. I just finished reading your year in review and was very glad that you wrote: ” Also, I plan to increase my output of fiction, which suffered somewhat, including the Campus Parking, Christina Wilson, Moot Court, and the Pi Lambda Kappa series.” I just wanted to observe that to me you are one of the finest writers in bondage fiction and I sure would appreciate reading more of your works.”
“I had the pleasure of reading the first two parts of Campus Parking Ticket Roundup and wanted to comment on it. You are an excellent writer, and I make a living writing, so I don’t make such compliments idly. You’re willing to take your time, let the eroticism creep in. You don’t try to bludgeon the reader with sex or sexual situations, but try to start with reality and take a detour, veering back to reality often enough to make the erotic parts seem realistic, even though they aren’t.”
“Thanks for your quick reply. However, I’ve spent much time on your BBS just trying to find the next story of “A Woman Imprisoned in Bondage”, but I still cannot find the EXACT one. I must admit that I like that novel very much and I am eager to know what happened after Angelica was put into that erotic prison.
“I know it’s just an excerpt from “An Easy Job”, but I just don’t know where I can read the WHOLE novel. I found your “Damsels in Distress”, but only 12 earlier stories from “An Easy Job” appears. I also used the file search to search “Angelica”, “An Easy Job”…even “Felix”, but I still could only find some odd stories that weren’t the continuation of “A Woman Imprisoned in Bondage”.
Please be kind as to let me know the answer as soon as possible. Your story has aroused me up but how can you just show me an abrupt ending that way? This is a kind of torture and cruelty. 🙂
In my country, it very hard to apply a VISA or Mastercard since the communist country just doesn’t allow people to freely take capitals to the outside world. So I wait almost a year to get a VISA and pay to be your BBS member! Please take this into your consideration —- for almost a whole year I have imagined many times how Angelica’s story should go on and now I cannot wait to see the answer!”
Television presenter Vika had always been fiercely competitive, so when there seemed to be competition; developing to host a new show that was tipped to be a hit, she did whatever it took to crush it!
She subjected her main opponent to a campaign which involved coordinated death threats and vandalism against her property, causing her to remove herself from the public eye and handing the job to Vika (@vika_model). Until, that is, the trail of the investigation reacher her.
Charged with multiple offenses, she lost her jobs and eventually agreed to a plea bargain, under the terms of which she would report to prison withing 30 days to start her 4 – 6-year sentence.
She used that time to arrange a controversial photo shoot in which she was shown in various prison restraints, an attempt to make light of what had happened and her upcoming punishment and set the stage for a comeback when she is released.
It was widely condemned but made sure that she remained talked about, something that will be vital as she is locked away and removed from the public eye for the years to come.
