Shotgun Video was establish in 1998, and this BDSM site is run by a sadistic, dominant top who not only directs and films all the videos, but plays in them, too. Roger is a serious dom with a lot of experience on how to take his subs on painful journeys they'll never forget. I certainly won't - some of these men endure serious amounts of pain that had even me squirming a little bit. Roger, the Master who runs this site, is in his 50s. He's confident, skilled and he owns a huge array of BDSM gear from ropes, clips and clamps to harnesses, hoods, floggers and electrical gear. And that's just for starters. He really knows how to treat the men who are in his complete control, and anything can happen in a session.
The men who come to submit in Roger's dungeon and playroom are masculine studs, muscle hunks and daddies ranging throughout their 20s to their 40s, with some perhaps a little older. They're in good shape, and some obviously workout very seriously. Some are smooth, others hairy and some men are clean shaven and bearded. There are cut and uncut cocks, and pierced ones, too. I saw a few porn performers like Tony Buff and Dolan Wolf, but the subs weren't there to earn a performance fee; Shotgun Video is very much about the BDSM lifestyle.
There's so much going on here that it's difficult to encapsulate it in a paragraph. These sessions are made by and for real BDSM players and you'll find all levels of kink and play. Regardless of how the men are restrained - ropes, chains, straps or handcuffs - almost every scene features ball crushing, cock and ball torture, nut squeezing, stomping, electro stimulation and more. Roger gets off on giving a man's nuts a seriously painful working over. I don't think I've seen so much CBT in one place. Roger had two men in a contest to see how much weigh their nuts could endure, the loser fell to his knees at 58 pounds! Another sub had an electro device buzzing his balls until the man's cock blasted a massive load of cum straight into the air. What a sight!
But it's not all CBT. I saw men getting various types of corporal punishment by hand, with straps as well as with floggers and other implements. There's some ass play with cocks, dildos and other toys, as well as some fisting. Many of the scenes are just Roger and a sub, but many feature Roger playing with a couple of men.
Shotgun Video offers members 470 video updates in streaming Flash, but these take a bit of explaining. The site itself says there are 268 videos and that's because almost every videos has multiple parts (anywhere from 2 to 5 parts each), giving us a total of 470. The individual parts are added one at a time, so if a session has five parts, it takes five weeks to add all the parts.
The videos stream on a pop-up page with a player at 640x474. When you click to watch a video, the site will auto-detect the speed that seems best for your connection (there are four speeds), but it's very easy to change to a different speed and size. They're good amateur quality with good sound so you can hear the men beg for mercy, ask for more or scream their fucking lungs out. There is a full-screen mode, but I didn't find the videos fared very well.
There is a "Photo Index" section, but there are no picture galleries here. This is just a different display of each movie.
Now let's talk extras. Shotgun Video members get access to 38 assorted gay and straight, third-party video feeds. These are in multiple niches including hairy men, black guys, Latinos, jocks, wrestling, dungeon play, handjobs, sucking and fucking and more. There's also another area called Back Room, which offers 116 full-length DVDs in 29 different categories, but I couldn't get this to open in Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer. We'll contact the site and report back on this.
When it comes to issues, it would be nice if more than the most recent of the updates were dated. However, our last review was in October 2011 and there have been 142 weeks since then and there has been an increase of 142 videos, so it appears that the site is updating weekly. Also, as already mentioned, the photo index has no photo sets.
Shotgun Video delivers authentic gay BDSM, and Roger himself is very involved with the men who submit to him. His experience is evident as he crushes or strikes their balls, puts them in all sorts of bondage and guides them as he causes them very real pain. The videos are good sized but not offered for download, and the site does update weekly, although each update is only part of a full scene. And not all of the videos are actual play sessions; Roger also teaches seminars in the BDSM community, so you can watch and learn. The bottom line: if you're looking for real gay BDSM, mature men and a very experienced dominant, Roger is impressive and his site gives you so much to enjoy.
