Hunk Hunt - Mitch Colby 4

You might think as I did, that the memorable appearances by Mitch in the films reviewed in parts 1-3 of this series might be part of a glittering career in fetish erotica but I have been unable to find any other films in this genre in which he features.

There's a fairly obscure, vanilla sex film 'Showguys 351' (2008) in which Mitch gets his ass stuffed by a cheery Manuel Torres in a straightforward studio session.

Showguys is supposedly Mitch's first sex film 
and it predates the fetish series where sex is a scarcer commodity.

As in 'Slicked Up', Mitch shows us only his bottoming side.


 There is also a sequel to 'Slicked Up' in the form of a Naked Kombat wrestling match with Dak Ramsey, which apparently had to be refilmed because Dak ran out of puff after 5 minutes in the ring the first time.

 Regular readers of this blog won't be surprised to learn that Mitch's olive-coloured trunks caught my eye in these images, cut as well as colour. (Search on 'olive' for more articles on this subject).

Clothing gets a rough time in these rip 'n' strip sessions, but much as I enjoy the eroticism of clothed bodies, I must confess that Mitch Colby's ass loses absolutely nothing from total exposure. Here Dak gets a ball-crushing.

Mitch has the upper hand throughout the 'contest' and as his reward (and ours) he finally gets to top the hapless Dak, thus gaining some measure of revenge (if it were needed!) for his servitude and suffering in 'Slicked Up'. You get a nice sense of Mitch's tall, lean physique in this shot.

This video is also the key to Mitch's less well-known career and leads us to a surprising reunion.
More next time!

Hunk Hunt - Mitch Colby 3

Two years after 'Shock Treatment' and 'Slick It Up' (see parts 1 & 2), Mitch made an appearance in Slave Traders from Bound Muscle (2011). It's a more significant role as he has to do a lot more than take a thrashing.  'Slave Traders' has a storyline and he has to act, playing a seller of slaves who finds his transaction going awry.

At the start we see him taking delivery of a slave in a wooden crate, it's the long-suffering muscle guy, Derek Paine. Dressed in shirt and chino's and wearing glasses, Colby cuts a quite different figure to the bewildered prisoners of the first two films. However, his muscular shoulders and biceps are still evident, almost bursting out of his shirt, a reminder that with clothes sometimes, more is sexier.

Colby's partner in crime is the Luke Riley who I find strangely alluring despite his hill-billy beard. He looks very fetching in his guard's uniform and proceeds to mop Paine's brow and other areas under Colby's supervision.

Preparation of the slave continues with Riley shaving the man's torso.
His clumsy technique results in multiple, paine-ful nicks to Derek's skin.

Colby doesn't seem to notice.
He watches for a while then goes off to speak to the buyer he's got lined up,
to tell him he can come and collect the goods he has paid for.

 While Colby's away Riley can't resist playing with the Slave and testing him out.
Starting with nipple clamping and punching, it gradually escalates
 into more serious stuff as he becomes more and more excited.

Paine ends up getting a serious pain work out.
Riley shows his appreciation in the time-honoured way by christening him.

When Colby returns and finds his merchandise cut, battered and bruised, he is not amused.
He chains Riley to an upturned table reprimanding him for his irresponsible behaviour.
There's a nice size contrast between them in this image. 

For once Colby is not on the receiving end.
He punishes Riley with a good flogging while the slave watches.

This sequence features some great images of Colby's torso and Luke Riley's pert little ass.
Unfortunately this 'leaning' method of restraint (which must have got quite uncomfortable after a while) doesn't give Riley much scope for reacting to the blows (by writhing etc),
we have to content ourselves with his facial grimaces.

The buyer unexpectedly arrives in the middle of the thrashing to claim his purchase.
He is not amused to find the goods have been soiled and confronts Colby.
The scene now shifts to the buyer's dungeon......

Paine, the buyer's purchase is being readied for a session with the zapper gun. But it seems that, as compensation for his injured state, the buyer has also claimed the man  responsible, Luke Riley, seen here tied to a chair awaiting his due reward. In addition Mitch Colby, the seller, has delivered himself up and is seen here looking on from a cage.
There follows a lengthy sequence of Paine being tortured.

When the Buyer (who we never really see and isn't identified) decides to take a break, he turns his attention to Mitch Colby who's lying helpless in his cage. The Buyer's more annoyed with him than Riley, blaming him for allowing his Guard to sully the goods.

Colbys chunky physique looks well in his metal prison.

The Buyer doesn't punish Colby himself, but turns Riley the Guard loose on him,
 knowing that he is burning with anger about the flogging Colby gave him.

Riley starts by dousing Colby with hot wax - in such large quantities that (bizarrely)
he needs to use a glass, kitchen measuring jug to administer the stuff.
(personally I find they always dribble - perhaps a not entirely inappropriate quality here!)

Inevitably I suppose, when wax is applied there's only one way to get it off
and that's with a hot flogging. Colby's forced to stand on one leg to add to his discomfort.

Luke gives a fine display of a man venting his anger,
prowling round the helpless Colby and lashing him remorselessly.

A sore and aching Colby is left to ponder where he went wrong!

This under-rated film is a great vehicle for him. Although it's young Luke Riley who's the star of the piece, the older Colby makes an excellent foil for his indignation. The young employee getting to thrash his boss is, of course, a most appealing subject however you choose to present it.

See all these and many many more at Bound Muscle - Slave Traders.
You can also buy the video there.

My thanks to Bound Muscle for the images. Their films have a distinctive style which is darker and much earthier than the highly-polished Bound Gods stable. It's some time since they added a new title but their back catalogue is worth exploring.

Hunk Hunt - Mitch Colby 2

Around the same time as 'Shock Treatment' (see Part 1) Mitch Colby made an equally memorable appearance in Bound Gods film 'Slicked Up' (2009) with Dak Ramsey. It's a similar storyline, Mitch is taken from his slave cage, stretched out and remorselessly punished.

I love the moment when Dak rips Colby's vest off as a prelude to stripping him completely and getting on with the matter in hand which includes a good deal of flogging and butt punishment.  The Bound Gods trailer for this section is particularly good an I have included it below.

This trailer is a little gem of straightforward S&M without the frills (they come later).
It really does leave you wanting to see more.

As in 'Shock Treatment'  the stretched out position makes the most of Colby's mature, chunky figure. He looks great and so do his buns. His 'regular guy' maturity suggests there's more to this story than just being a slave. You start to wonder why is a man like this in this bizarre situation?

In S&M you don't have to have an erection to look sexy.
This image isn't one of the regular promotional stills but it captures a terrific dramatic moment with Dak putting his back into it. Mitch's total nudity and vulnerabilty is really brought out by the close cropping of this picture (and possibly the placing of the logo too, which is normally so unwelcome). Mitch's fair hair also contributes to this effect, creating the illusion of a shaved crotch, but arguably looking more interesting

Mitch tolerates some pretty fierce punishment during this video and wears a marvellous expression of baffled incomprehension for much of the action. At least, that's when you can see his face. Unfortunately (from my point of view) Dak forces him to wear a red rubber mask for part of the action and he wears a black one himself during the opening sequence (images 2-5, above). That's down to the 'Slick It Up' connection, they presumably sponsored this film. Masks don't really work for me, I like to see faces and expressions, but there is some nice, tight bondage and great flogging in this section (see links below for more).

Bound Gods leave their own distinctive imprint on the film too with the now-familiar 'string of pegs' routine (6, above) and a black, scaffolding-style, restraining frame for the finale in which Mitch gets caned and then fucked by Ramsey. In the still above he makes closer acquaintance with Dak's ass.

This video has a more significant sexual role for Mitch than in 'Shock Treatment', but it's totally passive, all the more so in the rigidity of the restraining frame which doesn't even allow head movement. The free-style opening of this film is much more interesting for me and is enough to make this a noteworthy entry in Mitch's CV. 

(see a different trailer and more stills at Bound Gods No 6690)

I imagine most of you, if you are fetish fans, will have come across the two films I have referenced so far in this 'Hunk Hunt' before. However, Mitch's career beyond these is less well-known and takes a different direction but there's one more fetish film to look at first in Part 3

Hunk Hunt - Mitch Colby 1

Click to expand picture 1
 For some reason Mitch Colby (above) and not to be confused with Colby Mitchell (of course!??) has started popping up quite frequently in my web wanderings of late, in the form of stills from his appearance in 'Shock Treatment' for Fetish Force (2009)

Click to expand picture 2
 I've always liked this scene for it's 'big man being tormented' theme. Mitch Colby's mature, good looks and slightly 'gone to seed' chunkiness is an attractive and very masculine persona. He lives up to that label as he is put through a succession of electric shock torments by Derek Da Silva.

Click to expand picture 3
 Mitch Colby remains bound to a cross throughout the scene and his torment is conducted in front of a very boyish-looking Adam Knox and Andreas Cavalli who have sex in front of him while it is going on. In this image they look on like biblical characters witnessing the public chastisement of a miscreant (and getting off on it - unlike biblical characters - supposedly).

When Adam is presented to the torturer for his own dose of 'DC' treatment, the dismayed look on Colby's face makes you wonder if Knox is his boyfriend, being led astray or forcibly abused while he, the older protector, can only look on helplessly.

Click to expand picture 6
 This cleverly constructed image gives a great impression of Knox, over-powered by a bigger man and looking very vulnerable. Spreadeagled Colby looks on helpless to intervene, but unable to look away. In this scene Da Silva discharges electricity through his own body to Knox, dick to dick. I don't know how much this hurts but it is erotic!
Click to expand picture 7
 For me, the potential of the 'X'-cross as a dungeon device is largely wasted if the captive keeps his feet planted on the ground throughout and he's simply spreadeagled on it (as in picture 5 above). With this image's clever angling however, Titan manage to make the connection with conventional crucifixion, suggesting suspension and highlighting Colby's hefty physique at the same time.

Click to expand picture 8
It's only towards the end of the film that Da Silva burrows inside Colby's jockstrap to see what's in there. In an odd sort of way, the muted sexuality between these two men gives their drama more substance. Notice how in this image Colby looks away and that disengagement, though realistic in itself, actually creates a less interesting picture than when he watches what is being done to him (as in pictures 3 & 7). The two men's cocks are deliberately lined up in this picture suggesting that the pain is creating an erotic connection between them, but Colby's leaning back pose looks a little to relaxed to carry that off.

Titan's preference for heavily-logo'd, wide-screen teaser images, especially those with rather distant viewpoints sometimes seems to drain them of their drama. This picture is a case in point. That's their prerogative of course, they want you to buy the film, not just feast on the freebies.

These stills are borrowed from Tony Buff's blog and there are many more from this film there
View the 'Shock Treatment' trailer at Titan's Website.

Mitch Colby has a mature, gentle giant look about him, with slight tendency to chubby hairiness that is quite cuddly. In this role that adds a poignant flavour to his predicament. Reviewing it again after a gap of several years, it made me wonder about what other films he had made. Thus another of my 'Hunk Hunt's was triggered and it led me eventually to a most unexpected, but highly appropriate place.
