Asian Speedo Bondage 1

 

Men in brief swim suits with their low waists always look sexy
but it's quite hard to find erotic imagery of men tied up in Speedos.
 

There's a selection of swimmer bondage images that have been circulating on the internet for many many years and you may recognise some of them here. This yellow speedo suspension image is one of my own favourites and as you can see it's of Asian origin.


 This is rather nice too, more understated, but still with complex upper body roping
He's a man who looks very attractive even from behind!
Seating him on a bed adds an extra erotic frisson.


From the front, the man's body is seen to be enmeshed in neat,
criss-cross ropework in the characteristic shibari-style.
The lower-body ropes loop underneath his crotch
to make an unambiguous erotic statement.


The glimpse of tight rope emerging again from between
shiny speedo-clad buttock cheeks is very sexy.


I remarked on the 'shock of pink' on a man in my Jase Dean 'hunk hunt' post, (twice in fact)
This shiny, bright pink swimsuit makes this image particularly memorable.
The ass curves of the tight-fitting Speedos create a nice sense of 'containment'
and harmonise with the coiling rope lines.


The kneeling pose and heavyweight ropes used on this broad-shouldered man
convey a particularly good impression of both strength and capture.
His skimpy trunks create a cupping effect, particularly the lower blue part.

All these pictures depict asian men and in all of them the faces are obscured which obviously detracts from them somewhat. In some cases, crude pen strokes have been used to obscure eyes. Surprisingly this custom of anonymity persists to the present day. Even in the modern opening image of this article the model's eyes are covered with silver tape for anonymity.

Fortunately it doesn't matter too much from the back.


This is a notable exception. It's also been around for a while but I suspect it's origins may be nearer the West judging by the studio sophistication in the back drop. I imagine this was from a magazine spread of some size, but it is the only sample I've ever seen.


 In this example it's not just the model's face that is hidden.
The complex shibari roping covers much of his body, almost hiding the Arena swim suit.
This captive is ritualistically suspended in a purpose-built 'display frame'.
 

 There's a significant contrast in this image which has no lower body ropes at all.
In this picture the Speedos can still make the statement, 'I am a swimmer'
But the upper body, a key element in swimming, says, 'I am a captive'
The centre seam of the swimming trunks substitutes for a crotch rope.


This classic shibari hog deliberately highlights the buttock area
with crotch divider and thigh ropes tight under the ass cheeks.
The rope-work is ably supported by the brightly-coloured Speedos
 which curve beautifully round the buttock profile with a nice sheen.
The blue waist level flash also suggest roundness - and brevity.



In this more modern picture the marriage of ropes and swimmer's trunks goes further
with  ropes threaded beneath the Aqux 'Speedos' making a very sexy statement.
They also augment the size and shaping of the pouch of the shiny garment,
conveniently assisted once again by the emphasising yellow side flashes.

One wonders if this man was obliged to endure hands reaching inside his trunks
 while the ropes were threaded underneath?
 or was he stripped naked to be tied and the trunks replaced afterwards?


The Speedo pouch augmentation in this example is slightly less subtle!
These ropes are not a 'bra'-style support but continue down and crossover between the legs.

The low waist reveals signs of sexy 'grow-back' on the swimmer's shaved abdomen
and there's a tell-tale sign of his excitement arising from this 'predicament'.

This image brings out the classic skimpy 'waist' line of true Speedos.
It's not a real waist at all, the trunks are stretched horizontally between the thighs.


It's this design feature that makes these garments seem so skimpy when worn by competition swimmers, who care not about how sexy they look (presumably) but about how sleek their body shape is when wearing them. The professional model in this picture is less reserved about what he's showing and with that challenging look on his face it's tempting to imagine him being whisked off by a lurking bondage rope-master for closer examination.


This image offers an example of that closer 'examination' in progress.
 The Asian love affair with captive swimmers is brought out nicely in this picture
where the bondage is cursory and designed to improve access rather than to immobilise.

The captive assumes a heroic, god-like position
in which he can receive the worshipful tributes of his admirer.
His body is allowed to display it's beauty unfettered.



But don't imagine it's just about muscle or body worship!
The Speedos also receive their due and christening from within.

I much prefer to see the participants faces in erotica, even if it's not the main focus of attention,
 but the use of swimming goggles as a disguise here is clever and highly appropriate.

Sadly, I have not been able to provide a link for these last two images. Finding Speedo material is getting harder, due in part to internet porn hustlers using a proliferation of false labels to attract and distract searchers. It's also because Asian language issues make their blogs hard to access.
If I find it again I'll post it, help from readers welcome!


Recently one readily accessible site has become visible which has a strong 'line' in Asian Speedo bondage images, Rai's Playroom. The opening image of this article and the one directly above come from this source and I suspect some of those earlier anonymised images do too.
 You will see that there is a good level of artistic and photographic quality
and it's not at the expense of erotic value.
I like the nice economical and neat bondage here.

In my next post I will look at this site in more detail.
