Upcoming Bondage Thoughts into 2015

Hmm, that's a bit of an awkward title.  But I hope you get my drift.  These are some thoughts we've been mulling over for upcoming bondage wrestling action:

1. Crazy Azy vs Hanz  (update 1/14/15: Released!)

First off, a match that is just screaming to happen: Crazy Azy vs Hanz.

Both Azy and Hanz were together at the same bondage wrestling shoot in October.  They both wrestled Mahea, one after the other (and both won).  And then, both Azy and Hanz were together at the same bondage wrestling shoot in November.  They both wrestled VeVe, one after the other (and both lost).

But for some strange reason or oversight, we just haven't had them bondage wrestle each other.  A fan wrote in this week, in response to a match-making question I'd asked, and he suggested we make this match-up.  And, yes, of course, how could we not?

I immediately contacted Azy and Hanz to get their opinion on the matter, and they both promptly responded with an affirmative!

2. More VeVe vs Rachel DD

We had a great response to the original bondage wrestling match of VeVe vs Rachel DD and, in fact, fans are very eager to see a rematch.  This is totally do-able.  And I'd actually like to add some other vital elements to the mix.

Continuing on the "early gagging" theme and also in an attempt to get an "early gag" worked into a competitive match, I'd like to pursue the superheroine costume idea for this second match.  Rachel in Black Canary attire, ambushed by Evil VeVe and gagged immediately - thus robbing her of her sonic scream super power - and forced into a bondage battle.

I really hope to make that one happen as soon as we can.

3. Zentai vs Non-zentai

In response to our zentai wrestling and recent zentai bondage wrestling, a fan had suggested a match featuring a zentai-suited person against a non-zentai person.  I like this idea, and I think it can totally work in a rope-tie battle.

There's this neat alien aspect of being assailed by a faceless, featureless, mono-textured opponent.  While Zentai vs Zentai puts both participants on equal ground for alien-ness, a "regular" person fighting against a Zentai could be more unnerving.

There's a lot of possibility here, actually, and it's certainly on the To-Do list.

4. The Next Multi-person Tournament(s)

We loved our two 4-way female bondage matches, and we especially loved our 6-way bikini match from this past summer.  We're brewing plans for a new "special attire" themed 4-way for early 2015.  More info on that will be revealed later.  I am also aiming for an eventual 8-way match some time later.  Can you imagine how wildly awesome that would be?  Totally do-able with good planning.

So far, all of our multi-way tournies have been female-only.  People really enjoy these, and the ladies do love egging each other on.  However, would a mixed multi-way be interesting?  Or would it be too much... mixing?  I think it would have an appeal to some audiences, but would it be too much of a niche focus?  Couples match?  Boys vs girls?  Men and women both being bound by men and women, all at the same time?  Readers, your opinions are appreciated.

5. Outdoor, On Location, and Storyline Competitive

It would be great to frame some competitive bouts within the context of an adventure storyline.  I've considered the "Small Storyline" concept and the "Large Storyline" concept.

By "Small Storyline," I mean a single match between characters or character-types who encounter each other in a specific location.  Examples:

  • Rival Agents who are both going after the same target, who chance run into each other and who need to incapacitate their rival to get her out of the way.
  • Angry Ballerinas who have a tiff backstage and try to tie each other up with extra pairs of tights
  • A retail shop employee who tries to wrangle a shoplifter using duct tape
  • Superheroines / Villains doing their animosity thing... on a roof top, in a secret hideout, on top of a Dooms Day device.
By "Large Storyline," I mean a longer scenario in which the protagonist may face several competitive bondage wrestling opponents as she / he moves through the world of the story.  Maybe, in the course of an adventure, the heroine has to face various villains and incapacitate them with bondage materials: rope, tape, cord.  If the matches are competitive, she might run the risk of losing and being bound herself.  But the story doesn't end - she'd need to make her escape (a la a "Bondage Escape Challenge") and keep trying.

The Large Storyline takes a bit more planning, but I do like the "Choose Your Own Adventure" aspect that the competitive style would bring.  Granted, it may be jarring that the matches in the context of the storyline could / would be much longer than we're used to seeing in a mainstream adventure movie (15-20 minutes vs 3-5 minutes).  But the idea is certainly something I'd like to try.

Wrap Up

So, there are 5 little ideas that are kicking around and hoping for realization in the new year.  As I mentioned, I think a lot of them are quite achievable.  Concepts like the Large Storyline are ambitious, but certainly not impossible.  As is always the case here in New York City, scheduling and talent/venue coordination is the biggest challenge for these sort of things.  But when serendipity happens, it sure is sweet.

I'll leave you now with that.  I hope you enjoyed these ideas and that they are something you're curious about yourself.  Many are fan-inspired and/or a meeting place between suggested concepts and concepts we've been mulling on our end.

And, as always, if there's something you're curious to see, feel free to write in and let us know.  I always appreciate all comments, suggestions, and feedback.  And we all do enjoy dialoguing with fans, viewers, and readers using this neat and versatile video medium.

Happy New Year to all!

Syd Blakovich Tries Bondage Wrestling!

We kicked off December with a particularly intriguing rope-tie match.  Expert grappler Syd Blakovich of California was coming to town, and she readily accepted our offer of a competitive bondage wrestling match against local rope-queen VeVe.

VeVe and Syd before their match

Syd had never wrestled with ropes before, but unlike most bondage wrestling newcomers, she did have a very relevant skill set at hand.  As a very experienced Brazilian Jiujitsu (BJJ) practitioner, Syd had a wealth of know-how when it comes to grappling with grips involved.  She had trained extensively with the gi (the jiujitsu uniform), and that style of grappling relies heavily on grips, binds, and using the uniform as a "tool" to control, off-balance, and even submit the opponent.  So, while rope bondage wrestling isn't quite Brazilian Jiujitsu, Syd felt quite comfortable with ropes in her hands.

VeVe knew she was in for a challenge.  Though VeVe also practices Brazilian Jiujitsu, Syd outranked her and had a greater technical knowledge of the art.  Syd also had a slight size advantage and more fighting experience.

The one ace VeVe had up her sleeve was her specific experience with bondage wrestling itself.  VeVe had fought in dozens of bondage wrestling matches over the past 4 years, learning by trial and error, developing a menu of ties based on what works and what doesn't, and frequently contemplating the strategy of rope-placement and tie order.  Not to mention constantly practicing knot-tying in a hurry.

It was hard to guess exactly how this one would go.  With no time limit, anything was possible.  Even the dreaded "Fight Til Eternity" phenomenon, which has driven VeVe and Hanz to the brink of collapse in several of their matches.

And, oh indeed, this one was a lengthy battle.  And it did finally end with a completed tie!  It was an intriguingly technical bout, with both ladies working the ropes with impressive deftness and agility.  Sweeps, turn overs, reversals, all good wrestling involved, as the competitors worked for binds and got creative with their rope placement.

This was our final competitive female bondage wrestling match of 2014, and it was a stellar finish to a lovely year of rope-wrestler-wrangling!  And below, please enjoy the official, formal account and match description:

VeVe Lane vs Syd Blakovich
Female Bondage Wrestling
December 2014

Visiting female wrestler Syd Blakovich pays a visit to our studio, where she has her very first encounter with the art of competitive bondage wrestling! Syd is a skilled jiujitsu practitioner, a tough athlete, and a very experienced grappler. She faces off against rope-wrestling expert VeVe Lane in what proves to be an intense, suspenseful, and challenging bondage match!

Syd is an active and aggressive wrestler, and she takes to the rope-work quite naturally, providing an incredible challenge for VeVe. Both ladies are impressive multi-taskers, constantly attacking each other with rope ties while also wrestling fiercely for position. VeVe responds to Syd's remarkable talent by counter attacking with unconventional ties, locking on single-leg and body ties to impede Syd's progress. But Syd pushes on, lassoing VeVe creatively and posing a constant threat, while also amassing more and more rope on her body from VeVe's methodical efforts.

After a long and absolutely exhausting struggle, VeVe uses the body ties to fight her way toward a double-elbow tie. Her persistence pays off, and she snares Syd with the painful bind. Syd is shocked by the tightness and effectiveness of the bind, suddenly finding herself helpless as VeVe rushes to finish her off. VeVe binds Syd's legs as Syd tries uselessly to free herself. But it is useless indeed; the rope pain renders her totally immobile as VeVe works quickly and binds her into a hogtie.

With Syd hogtied and finally under control, VeVe takes a moment to catch her breath and admire her work - and also to harass her astonished new captive - before topping her off with a duct tape gag. VeVe shows off her completely immobilized, hard-won prize and concludes with a victory pose. What an exhausting and hard-fought bondage bout!

Total running time: 32 minutes

Duct Tape Bondage Wrestling is Back!

Last month, mere moments after her rope bondage match against Crazy Azy (mentioned here), VeVe quickly shifted gears, made a little costume change, and squared off against her long-time wrestling rival Hanz Vanderkill for our first competitive mixed duct tape bondage wrestling match!

In March of this year, as some of you may know, VeVe participated in our first female/female duct tape match against M.  In fact, this was our first-ever experience with duct tape bondage wrestling

For that match, VeVe and M wore pantyhose and leotards - not only because they were angry rival ballerinas, but also so the tape would stick more readily to their bodies, even as they started to sweat.  A good tactic for good tackiness.  And indeed a tactic that left long-sleeve-wearing M duct taped up fairly quickly.

But for VeVe's match against Hanz, skin was in... or at least more so.

For this mixed match, Hanz wore only his spandex shorts, leaving most of his skin exposed to the tape.  Would this be a boon or bane?  Would the sweat protect him from getting stuck, or would his skin suffer from direct-to-body-taping?

VeVe, on the other hand, opted to wear a bikini top and three pairs of pantyhose, each a slightly different color.  She expected a rough and sticky fight to come, and so she was well prepared to face the pantyhose-distress that the duct tape would bring.

Speaking of rough fights, I'd like to point out that these two have a history of creating LONG and furious bondage wrestling matches.  Their first rope match was a lengthy and ferocious battle... and their rope rematch was even longer and more ferocious.

So, yes, take two hardcore, never-say-die bondage wrestlers, add duct tape, and, well, yes, there is most definitely some pantyhose-distress to be expected!

The match was fierce!  It was grueling, it was brutal, it was infuriating, rough, and hard-fought.  And, yes, there was some pantyhose-distress.  But all things considered, the nylons did hold up better than I thought they would.  But then again, the nylons didn't end up on the losing side of the battle...

Mixed Duct Tape Bondage Wrestling
VeVe Lane vs Hanz
November 2014

A new, grueling mixed wrestling challenge - VeVe Lane faces off against her arch-rival Hanz Vanderkill in a fully competitive, rough-and-tumble Duct Tape Bondage Wrestling match! Hanz has always been VeVe's toughest male bondage wrestling opponent. Now the two will clash in this new duct tape style. The first to fully immobilize the opponent wins!

VeVe and Hanz dive into the the match eagerly, unwinding their tape and fighting to wrap it around each other. But they quickly find bondage wrestling with tape is nothing like using ropes! The tape needs many wraps before it's strong enough to hold such a furious fighter as VeVe or Hanz, and the two break through each other's attempted binds over and over. As the mats fill up with torn strands of tape, the fighters' frustration grows. Clearly the winner will need to lock in full control of the opponent before even beginning to tape them up – no easy task!

VeVe and Hanz resort to punishing scissor and leg-triangle holds, attempting to keep their hands free to wind the tape. Submissions aren't allowed, but as the intensity keeps climbing, desperation for a finish mounts, and the holds snap on rougher and tighter, each fighter hoping to intimidate and wear down the other.

At long last, VeVe scores the perfect hold. She manages to lock Hanz in an incredibly tight mounted triangle. With Hanz gasping and thrashing, VeVe races to tape up his arms before he can break free yet again.

She speedily wraps his wrists and forearms, the finish line finally in sight. She locks up his legs and tightly tape-binds him from shins to thighs then tapes his arms to his body. Hanz groans in discomfort, but VeVe just keeps winding the tape, so pleased to have finally caught him! She shuts him up with a thick tape gag before torturing him with a brief set of headscissors. She rubs a pair of her sweaty pantyhose in his face and concludes with a proud, hard-earned victory pose. 

VeVe: 5'4" and 120 lbs. Hanz 6'1" and 180 lbs.

Total running time: 36 minutes

Includes opening comments and 5 minutes of candid post-match remarks. 
VeVe wears bikini top and 3 pairs of pantyhose. Tape gag for loser.
