Please tell us a little bit about yourself – How would you describe your everyday vanilla life?
Well, I am a bondage producer, so much of my time is spent organizing shoots with models, filming, and then hours here on the computer editing videos and promoting my website... I am also a full time tattoo artist, and I work at a shop here in Florida doing that about 30-40 hours a week as well... I run kind of a duel life at the moment. Lol.
When did you first realize you were into bondage?
When I was about 4 or 5 years old and saw Batgirl and Wonder Woman getting tied on daytime TV.
How you best describe yourself and why? Your choices are: Dominant, Submissive, Switch or Fuzzy Rainbow Unicorn.
I always thought I was a dominant. But I’ve had a couple of experiences lately that had the tables turning on me. So, a dominant with switch tendencies? I didn’t know I liked it. I had been tying for so long, it was a good experience to see what it felt like from the other side. I think my tying will improve from it.
Do you feel that your desire for bondage is more physical or emotional? (please elaborate)
Both are huge and important for me personally. I love the sight of a beautiful bound woman, and the playing, but it’s the psychological aspects that really affect me. The situation, predicament, tie, etc. all make it much more than just a physical experience. That’s also what I try to convey in the videos I make for my site. I’m kind of lucky to get to explore both sides I guess. I get to play in my personal life, and get to work with the top bondage models all across the world. How did I get so lucky? :)
Were lovers accepting of your interest in bondage?
No, not always. It has caused some problems. I have been in relationships with very vanilla girls, and repressing who you are or what you're into isn't healthy. It can cause a lot of resentment. I had to make the decision to embrace my kinkiness and who I am. I moved my whole operation from Hawaii to Florida this year to chase this dream. I am a lot happier now!
Please briefly describe your first bondage experience.
I was always tying up my little girlfriends as a kid, playing superheroes and such. My first sexual bondage experience was in High School. I took my girlfriends bra off and tied her hands behind her with it. I was terrified, but it was the start of something huge.
What was your best bondage experience?
It's safe to say that I love it every single time I get to do it. Some experiences stick out in my head over others. Personally, I have to say meeting Trip Six was the best thing that’s happened to me up to date. She knows exactly what I like and how to play that up to the top tier. That chemistry spills over a lot into our filming together. The Trip Six videos definitely have a much different vibe (no pun intended) than the other videos.
What is the most creative safeword you have ever used?
What’s a safe word? Lol. I have honestly never used one. I know what distress looks like and I always had safety shears within a grabbing distance to cut the ropes if I have to. Communication is key. If something doesn't look or feel right, fix it. A lot of times a whole tie can be saved if you just adjust one little thing along the way. Stay in tune with your partner and don’t get carried away. Work up to difficult ties. Use common sense. Discuss limitations beforehand. You will have a much more rewarding experience if you aren't a dick, Lol
What do you feel is most important about the experience of bondage?
Well, personally I believe it can bring a dynamic into a relationship that you can’t get any other way. The trust and respect you can develop in a healthy bondage relationship would probably take a vanilla couple much longer to achieve? Maybe? Professionally I like to have a great shoot which is visually stunning. Hopefully the lighting was right, lens cap was off, mics were on, and we had fun making it.
What is the best advice you would give to someone just starting out with BDSM?
Have fun and communicate with your partner.
What is your favorite gear, toy or lingerie item from sub-shop.com and why?
I like the straps and the Bolero Straightjacket I got a while back. There was a gag I got from you years ago that I LOVED. It was a half-face lace up leather harness style gag. I wish I still had it. I haven’t seen it in your catalog for a while.
What is the one sensual fantasy you haven’t lived out yet that you are excited to try?
A live in full bondage prisoner. It’s in the works though. I want to shoot a 7-part full motion picture style movie of Trip Six in an entire 7-day week of full bondage. I will give her a different uniform to wear at the beginning of each morning, and then she gets tied in different predicaments or trials throughout the day. She eats in bondage, takes showers or bathes in bondage, and then she is hooded and strapped into bed each night. Do like a 7 part full week of updates on the site with it so fans can keep up with her. I think that would be a blast!
What’s your favorite knock-knock joke?
I prefer puns.
What is Eskimo ice?
Is it like yellow snow?
Is there anything else you would like to share with us such as advice, thoughts or more knock-knock jokes? We are all ears and ball gags.
Nope. Thanks for the interview/survey. Be sure to check out my website at www.ShinyBound.com!
