Connor at Bound Guys - 1

One of the highlights of the year for me was the arrival of a new model, Connor, at Bound Guys.
One of the nice features of this site is that it's not obsessed with nudity
(although that genre is well represented)
Connor's first appearance, clad in black singlet and jeans certainly did not disappoint.

Connor has an attractive boyish face and a chunky body
The storyline about a hotel thief surprised and tied up by his intended victim is sexy.

Connor's backside gets another showcase in a story of an American visitor
who is kidnapped and held hostage in a hotel room.

The victim's imploring look is terrific.

Nudity is superfluous when pants fit this well.
See more of Connor in the next post and at Bound Guys

A-Z of Fetish Artists,The letter N - Mitchell's Choice

It is my custom to choose a favourite for each letter and the letter N has provided the usual mix of artistry and eroticism.

My criteria are artistic merit, fetish content and sensuality, all overlaid of course with my own personal prejudices. In this group we had two notable 'artistic' contributions from Naomichi and Nobeast - beautiful but possibly not fetishistic enough to top the heap. Nicolas's more elastic draughtsmanship is also worthy of mention for it's successful portrayal of struggle and movement. As for fetish, Neil Bruce covers a wide spectrum of tastes, disguised with humour, but Nath66's sci-fi/medic fantasies also strike a chord for me. In the extreme art department Nikos' struggling torture victims, though simply drawn, quicken the blood in contrast with the art of NSM, Nimium and Nikolaas, which is perhaps a bit too careful and passive.

None of the artists represented here majors in sensuality (in the erotic sense) but I guess Nath66 and Neil Bruce come closest and these two artists are my main contenders and despite my reservations about mixing humour with fetishism there is only one choice here for me .... Neil Bruce whose subtly disguised nastiness and power play is very erotic.

Mitchell's A-Z of Fetish Artists - Nunn

Nunn - Forced

I'm not a fan of the work of Paul Nunn and I don't collect it because of the youth of the subjects he draws. However, I'm happy to acknowledge his existence and show a sample which is less Yaoi-like than much of his work.

The captive buddies/comrades theme is another 'pinch' from standard adventure fiction and I find it very erotic although I've never figured out quite why it should exert this power. The sexual coupling pose shown here, even with bondage involved, is pretty standard fare these days over at sites like 'Bound Gods' but the substitution of normal clothing for leather gear immediately creates a more sinister real-life atmosphere. Nunn manages to infuse the scene with a sense of frenzied activity and aggression which makes the plight of the captives seem more real. The faces of the two aggressors and their victims spell out exactly what is happening. Cold shiver time!

Nunn takes a few liberties with perspective (like the table) but they don't jar and almost lend an air of Picasso-esque respectability. This image has more convincing 'depth' than most cartoons. It's interesting to compare his treatment of folds in clothes with NSM our last artist.
