GayDemon reviewed Serious Male Bondage on 20 Mar 2014
When you call yourself Serious Male Bondage, you’d better live up the moniker - this site does. Men encased from head to toe in rubber, latex or leather, chained or strapped down, suspended from impressive equipment or confined in unique prisons. This site explores bondage in ways that will blow away novices, but experts will feel like they found a new home. Serious Male Bondage has grown exponentially since our review back in 2010, so it’s time for a fresh look.
This site is not about a particular type of man or body type; the men here come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. Serious Male Bondage is more of community of men into the bondage lifestyle, so you’ll see many guys doing repeat scenes. But as well, they feature newcomers and other bondage enthusiasts who stop by to play when they’re in town. Some of the videos here got me watching with fascination, while others had me shaking my head in disbelief. The gear here is outstanding, a bondage lover's dream come true, and the men are all very careful, safe and respectful.
Let me walk you through one scene. A man dressed in rubber and wearing a dog hood is lacing up the back of some gas mask gear on a naked man’s head. There are glass eye sockets and a mouth piece with a breathing tube attached to it; the other end of the hose is fastened to a glass tube with water in it. They get into breath-control play, and while the master deprives his sub of oxygen he also strokes his cock. Then the sub crawls inside a leather mummification suit on the table, and he’s zipped in and strapped down, all the while still breathing through the tube. The master unzips the area around the sub’s crotch, plays with his cock and balls, and even taunts him a bit with electricity. End scene. It’s a little more than 7 minutes from start to finish, but it’s intense.
There’s not heaps of rope bondage on this site as these men prefer other gear: straps, chains, restraints, handcuffs, straitjackets, gas masks, full-body suits, even plastic wrap and duct tape. They also do a fair bit of suspension bondage. Serious Male Bondage also explores all kinds of confinement from a permanent, on-premise jail cell to a hole in the ground or a holding pit built into a backyard patio deck – I told you these men live up to “serious."
When you log into the member area, you land on a personalized homepage that you can populate with your favorite scenes. This will come in handy since there are 552 videos on the site. If you’re new, it comes pre-loaded with the current 10 most popular. Most of the videos are offered in WMV format, and for a brief period the site was offering WMV and MP4 formats, but new episodes are now only offered as MP4s. What’s important is that they’re all downloadable and you can stream them if you prefer. The older videos display at sizes from 640x480 to 720x480, but newer scenes are an impressive 1280x720, and breathtaking in their clarity. I really did say “WOW!” the first time I opened one of them.
Each episode also has a gallery of pictures on the same page, sometimes they’re digital stills (683x1024), sometimes screen-cap pics (586x391). Some episodes have a handful of pictures, others have a couple of dozen. There are no slide shows or downloadable zip files, but you can save them individually. In total there are 575 galleries with over 28,000 pictures.
There wasn't anything I disliked about the site. If I had to be picky, there’s no firm update schedule where the site adds new scenes on a specific day of the week. But more importantly, the site consistently adds 7 or 8 new scenes every month.
My visit to Serious Male Bondage left me very impressed – there’s so much here to take in here – because this is the kind of site that an enthusiast will love exploring ... scene after mind-blowing scene. And bondage lovers will marvel at the variety of fetish gear, equipment and clothing. I can hear you guys saying, "What’s that?" or "Where the hell did they get that?" or "I want one of those." Serious Male Bondage is an impressive site, not only in numbers of videos, but in the amount of effort, preparation and gear that went into producing every single scene. If all porn were produced with this much passion, I’d never get anything done. Bravo!
