Buff and Bound combines several hot niches: muscle worship, bondage and tickling. The site features many well-known bodybuilders who are frequently found on the muscle gay porn sites. The site doesn't appear to be new and the domain has been around for four years, but we haven't reviewed this one, so let's head inside and see what they have to offer.
If you're a bodybuilding fan and you've been around some of the other muscle worship sites, you'll be familiar with a lot of the men on Buff and Bound: Derek Atlas, Frank the Tank, Mario Capelli and Mike Buffalari, The men are muscle hunks and professional bodybuilders with rolling shoulders, bulging biceps and big meaty and chiseled pecs - these men aren't casual twice-a-week gym visitors; they live the bodybuilding lifestyle, and while many of them have appeared on gay porn sites all over the web, most of them are straight but are comfortable knowing that gay men like admiring their bodies.
The action on Buff and Bound comes in two very different flavors. In the first, the bodybuilders are tied up and tickled with fingers, brushes, feathers, back scratchers, and other implements. The sessions are playful with their tickler teasing and taunting them as he finds their most ticklish spots and makes them giggle and laugh. He heightens the tease by saying things like "Are your feet ticklish?" and this gets these bound muscle hunks squirming all the more in anticipation.
The second series of videos are more serious where these bound and gagged muscle hunks are manhandled, usually by a masked man. Sometimes they're tied with rope, other times duct tape or leather cuffs. They're forcefully touched and insulted, and their shirts and underwear are often cut off with scissors or knives, or simply ripped off their bodies with their tormentor's big, strong hands. He squeezes and slaps their meaty pecs, whacks them with their t-shirts, or wraps his massive arms around them and squeezes. And sometimes the masked man will stop to pose and flex for the camera, just so we know how big a boss man he really is. It's kind of fun.
In both series there is full nudity but not any real cock play. And if these bodybuilders get erections, it's because they're excited and not because their genitals are touched or played with. There's no sex or cumshots; these sessions are all about being powerless and manhandled, or tickled as in the first series of videos.
There are 71 videos on the site and they can be streamed in MP4 format. Newest videos display at 900x507 and older at 640x360. They're good amateur productions with crisp picture quality, good lighting and sound. Each video runs around 10 to 15 minutes, but a few are only 5 minutes. While there's no limit on streaming, you cannot download any of these movies with your membership, but the site offers a buy-to-own program where you can purchase them for $6.99 to $13.99 depending on the length of the video and these downloads are available in MP4, WMV, and mobile versions. The movies played smooth, but the site doesn't appear to be using a full-streaming server, so jumping ahead in a scene required a few-second wait for the video to catch up.
Each episode has a picture gallery, which you can view on the site, and features 10 to 24 high-quality screencaps. They display in the same size as the videos (900x507) but older episode galleries offer pics that are 400x600. There are no hands-free slideshows, but you can download zip files of all the photos.
My biggest complaint about the site is that I have no idea how often Buff and Bound updates because none of the episodes is dated. However we find a clue in the clips-for-sale section that shows videos were filmed between 2009 and 2013 with the most recent ones showing up in November 2013. The tour shows that the latest update was added less than a week ago. So the site appears to be updating, we just don't know how often.
The only other negative thing I have to say about the site is that at around 10 to 15 minutes each, I found the videos were a little on the short side. Just when I was enjoying watching the bodybuilders struggle, the scene was over.
There's something really hot about watching a massively built muscle hunk rendered immobile with rope and duct tape. I found the tickling videos got me laughing and giggling, too, as I watched these bodybuilders squirm. The more serious bondage sessions felt realistic, and I loved seeing these big, strong bodies bulge and tense as they're manhandled. The men on Buff and Bound are sexy and the sessions give us a unique look at their bodies; as I watched them struggle I got a full appreciation for how strong these men are. Buff and Bound offers 71 videos, and I'm uncertain about the update schedule, but muscle worship fans who like a little kink should really enjoy this one.
