Bondage Art by Albron

Albron- Your Pleasure is all mine

A whimsical and romantic view of bondage from Albron with a nice, muscular subject all primed and ready to go. In the 'mitchmen' universe the fanciful fluffer here would be hustled away in due course to make way for a more earthy instructor in the arcane arts of fetish. The cloaked cock is supposed to be censored but it's plenty erotic enough for me, you can sense it's silky texture.

Albron distributes his work through Patreon so it's hard to find on the free web. There's a gallery hub at AlbronMuscle pointing you to a decent selection. I found his DeviantArt page Albron111 easiest to access. If you opt for his Patreon blog, you'll need lots of patience to wait for it loading.

Mitchell's Gay Fetish Art For May

Ripped clothes
Mitchell - We Ripped His Clothes...

This must be one of the cutest men I have ever drawn. A man who looks after himself, he's got himself a nicely developed body and a tan. He dresses neatly but unpretentiously and yet here he is, clothes ripped apart and dragged into a shower by at least two assailants who have hold of his arms. He's about to to get deluged with water next. Whatever can he have done to have deserved this treatment?

Torn jeans come and go as yoof-wear, but I have always had a thing about the drama of ripping clothes open - as a statement of passion rather than fashion. Of course the flesh revealed by a well-positioned tear is no less attractive (no knee tears please!).

This picture was a pure drawing exercise but I suppose it would fit quite well into one of my abduction stories like the Navy Press Gang tale or the Flat Cap Gang currently running at the mitchmen Group.

Alien Experiment

AManNamedN - Conversion (2013)

AManNamedN makes a speciality of furry human hybrids and Incredible Hulk-like creatures but this one is pretty near human apart from his feet which match the structure of the alien overseeing the experiment. It's not clear which direction the conversion is supposed to be going in, but the 'human' is showing signs of life where it counts most. I hesitate to call it 'the elephant in the room' but machine and alien alike do seem to be studiously avoiding it!

The technology on show seems less modern than you might expect with a 'ray gun' design reminiscent of mid-20th century sci-fi comics and Frankenstein films. The blocky mounts and ratchets are coloured like rusting cast iron but it does tone in nicely with the alien's skin.

Bondage Pop-Ups

Every so often a routine sexual encounter suddenly wanders into fetish territory!

As night falls Alex is looking forward to his regular date.
It's a nice relationship but it's got a bit routine of late.

Alex wishes Austin would be a bit more forceful with him.

Austin loves fucking Alex,
and has sensed that he needs to be more imaginative.
He knows Alex loves worshipping his body
So he's bought a new outfit to show off his physique.

The fit is just right
Will this rekindle Alex's excitement?

The trouble is, Austin knows Alex loves his ass
but he isn't very keen on sharing it with him.

Austin arrives late as usual
But Alex doesn't mind, he has a plan.

To Austin's relief Alex jumps on him,
it must be the new kit.
He's turned on by Austin's pecs
(me too!)

As soon as he decently can,
Austin makes a bee-line for the place he's most comfortable in.
But Alex stops him, he wants to talk.

Austin braces himself for the worst
But Alex has an unexpected surprise for him.

It's a pair of handcuffs.

Austin's not sure he likes this surprise.
It would be fun to be cuffed while Alex milks him
But he worries it's a good way to get his ass pillaged.

But no, it's Alex who wants Austin to cuff him
telling him to carry on where they left off.

Austin finds it all a bit confusing.
He's a gentle soul at heart who likes to be led.
Alex urges him to get stuck in and be a beast.

Austin dips a toe in the water
but Alex demands more:
Hold me down!
Go on. Dominate me!
Be rough!

Austin likes it when Alex is bossy with him.
So he goes for it, in his own way.
He finds it's quite nice to boss Alex around too.

It's good enough for Alex, who enjoys the moment
He has his fingers crossed for their next date,
hoping Austin will come up with more ideas for 'rough'
when he's had a chance to think about it more.

But he's afraid he'll probably just arrive
dressed in another new outfit
  head to toe in of leather this time.


This story uses images from the HotHouse movie 'The Fixer' (2017)
with Alex Mecum and Austin Wolf.

In the original Alex lures Austin into kinky sex and sells the tape to a blackmailer.

Nicholas Brunet Wrestlers

Nicolas Brunet is perhaps best known for his skinhead imagery but in these pictures he captures some of the essential erotic appeal of the sport of wrestling.

The flying surfboard hold is fiendishly painful but also puts the victim on display to the audience, exposing him in a helpless, vulnerable position. It is virtually inescapable if the lifter is strong enough and ruthless enough to keep his victim centred and balanced. The humiliation is compounded if he is clothed and his opponent naked, as here. The stressed flying position produces attractive arching of the body and from this angle, nice shaping of buns and thighs, which Brunet spotlights nicely, embellishing his image with erotic detail. I featured a similar move in the climax of another post, the Room 666 fantasy.

Brunet captures a marvellous sense of strength pitted against strength here, with a strong man being totally controlled by his very determined-looking opponent. There's almost a sense of David and Goliath in the contrast between the clean-shaven 'top' and his hairy opponent who looks much the more powerful man. However he has been rendered helpless, trapped and levered by his own interlocking limbs, applying pressure to his back, legs and shoulders. It looks as if he's about to suffer the final humiliation of being lifted off the ground when his own body weight will amplify the anguish.

This is a much less spectacular hold but Brunet has exploited it's simplicity to create an impression of casual, effortless domination. It looks like a brutal thug making mincemeat of a mild-mannered novice. The losing man has already been obliged to surrender his trunks and now has been forced into a passive, seated position where he cannot make any pretence of being a fighter. Instead he's obliged to bow forward in a humiliating, submissive stance while his opponent punishes his shoulders at will. The look of anguish on his face is like a heartfelt acknowledgement of pain and inevitable defeat.

The domination here is much more direct and brutal. The aggressor's choke hold seems immensely strong, temporarily overwhelming the victim, threatening him with consciousness and keeping him focussed on defence. Again there's a vivid visual contrast between the burly top and his cute, boyish oppenent. Away from the intensity of the 'combat zone' there's an erotic conjunction of crotches and forcibly spread legs opening up his other vulnerabilities. However, in the juxtaposition of bare-buttock and bulge, the top seems to be unexpectedly assuming a classic power-bottom position, which the scanty trunks seem to signalling too, it's something equally capable of scaring his opponent rigid.

Despite the 'Luchar' Masks and cage enclosure, this image is more erotica than wrestling with the leotards commanding more attention than the fighting. The open backside and low slung waistlines open up the possibility of interesting positions developing during the grappling, but the forced open legs and headlock shown here seem to represent transitional moves with indistinct outcomes. They could both develop into erotic possibilities but Brunet has left that to our imaginations.

In this last picture Brunet moves his grapplers into a fantasy setting with an unashamedly erotic motive. This hold has it's limitations as a conventional fight move since it carries the threat of a serious neck injury if applied with to much enthusiasm and for anything less than that the captive man can collapse his legs and turn out of it with the possibility of lifting his opponent on his shoulders. However, it's erotic credentials are strong, as it combines forced arching of the torso with the humiliation of arm pit hair and odours for the underdog. This time Brunet uses tribal tattoos to imply a surfeit of manly toughness in one of the combatants who nevertheless seems to be losing out to what looks like a very modern, aesthsetic-looking man. It seems an improbable but rather satisfying case of refinement overcoming coarseness.


I don't know if it's his official web page but there's a good Brunet Selection at Sadosam

My Fetish Wedding

Well I say 'my wedding', but it's really two of my boys 'tying the knot',
(well clicking a padlock really).

They had to ask for my consent of course which made me feel quite Fatherly.
I gave them nice, new waders as a present to wear for the ceremony.

As I am a true traditionalist I intend to be present at the consummation too.
Well someone has to untie their wrists or it won't be much fun for them!
I'll attend to any other needs and ensure it's a night to remember.
No question of removing the padlock of course, it's a lifetime commitment.
(Except when I need them)

The Art of Tentakun

Tentakun - Swallow (Chris Redfield)

My recent post of a Chris Redfield image with a mistaken attribution introduced me to the Art of Tentakun who was the true originator of the image. It turned out his original was not intended as an image of Redfield at all but I have found this different picture by him which does show Redfield, including the crucial identifying vestiges of uniform that were missing in the pirate adaptation.

The striking feature of this artist's style is the use of voluptuous muscularity embellished with gleaming highlights, notably on the nipples. This particularly effective erotic device can be traced back to the work of Tom of Finland (whose 100th anniversary we have just celebrated).

Redfield here is all very bulked up and exaggerated and there's a touch of Picasso in the way that a frontal view of the torso is combined with a side view of buttock and thigh. The change in angle gives the viewer a mild sense of  the captive turning as the eyes track downwards.

Tentakun - Swallow

The two Tentakun images discussed above feature a 'double-ended' attack which produces nice torso tension, but limits what can happening next - other than a gruesome Christmas Cracker moment! So I was pleased to discover this picture which focusses on the bottom-half scenario. It's quite understated, there are no menacing tentacles at all, but the title leaves no doubt that this man is still in serious danger. There's just a hint of panic perspiration on his upper body but further down it looks like he's coated with slime of some sort, which can also be seen on the upper surface of the entity that is swallowing him (which could be plant or animal, but the pink colour suggests sea anemone genes).

The captive appears to be trying to lever himself out of his predicament using his arms but his face tells you he's not being very successful. The artist has 'cut-off' his torso at groin level, which sidesteps Japanese censorship, but what you can see is still teasingly erotic. He's also toying with the possibilities of what's going on behind as well, but as far as I know there isn't a rear view counterpart.

Big brother of Porori with magic hit

Tentakun's bulked up men provide an ideal vehicle for ripped clothing imagery and this one features a sort of Incredible Hulk moment of explosive growth, happily it's a better looking 'hulk' than is customary. The groin harness is a another interesting element of Tentakun's images, it's erotic in it's own right of course, here shaping a promising bulge, but it's also more widely suggestive of  manly stuff - like seriously dangerous aerial work or military hiking with heavy burdens of equipment. Tentakun tends to use it in fantasy warrior imagery.

Tentakun - Dungeon Plunge

Ripped clothing moments are more commonly provided by exploring tentacles in Tentakun's art. One looks imminent in this image showing a man falling into the clutches of a nest of them (if that's the correct collective term). For me Tentakun (like many of his Japanese compatriots) has the knack of making skimpy underwear look highly erotic and he seems to borrow ideas from female erotica which for some reason is much more tuned to what is visually tantalising than gay stuff usually is. The glimpse of nether regions he's drawn here is a masterpiece of pixilation avoidance.

This man's pose looks rigid and fairly improbable at first sight, I think he's trying to show the reluctant victim pressing his hands and feet outwards against the wall of the pit to hold himself up, beyond the reach of the tentacles. That would be a deliciously vulnerable predicament, as the pants pulling activity illustrates, but the image doesn't quite make the connection with the walls look clear and solid. If you miss it you see a different (but equally effective) image where he's being tossed around.

The titles I've used for these examples are software-translated from Japanese so the results are often imprecise and benefit from flexible interpretation, I think we'd call this a pit or well rather than a dungeon but there are more difficult examples.

Tentakun - Dangerous Beach

Tentakun doesn't restrict himself to depicting the pure mechanics of tentacle-alia. In this scene he seems to be visualising the creatures being baited in beach challenges, where the contestants stand to lose more than their skimpy pants (much like Bull-fighters). The excitement of these beach activities seems to be stirring more carnal thoughts amongst these spectators. There's an intriguing challenge of a different sort going on in the bushes.

Tentakun - Mako-chan stretch (Speedo fetish)

While we're on the beach, it's no surprise that a Japanese artist would explore the erotica of 'Speedos'. There's a delightful irony in the anxious backwards glance of this young man, who seems to have suddenly realised that his unusually skimpy trunks and provocative pose might be attracting attention from an unintended and unwelcome quarter.

Tentakun - In The Cafe

We've all had our eye caught by sexy bottoms in bars and cafes but and I'm not averse to broad beams but Tentakun's interest in rear ends goes way beyond the norm and he flirts with gender ambiguity in some images. You can also see this inclination manifesting in the broad hips of the captive in the pink tentacle image that prompted this review, also in his exaggeration of pectorals and nipples like the image just below. 

  The translation of this title defeated Google and me apart from the word 'Cafe,' so I've improvised.

Tentakun - Admiring

Interestingly, the gender ambiguity in 'Admiring' is more apparent from the very heterosexual style of groping that's going on, rather than the pecs themselves which might otherwise pass unremarked. Most of us home in on the prominent (and evidently functioning) male organ which apparently needs no censorship when it's cloaked in skin-tight fabric - another one of life's mysteries.

It's nice to see a straightforward gay encounter although there's an element of doubt about the muscleboy's reaction. Is he alarmed about being touched or disconcerted by his own enthusiastic response? His revealing swimwear makes this image for me particularly the narrow band of cloth disappearing between the buttocks.

N.B.The full title is 'Admiring The Courage' (!)

Tentakun - Captive Knight

Talking of courage, this is the only conventional fetish image I've been able to find in this artist's site. The open legged pose reflects the background of tentacle art, but the bondage ropes make logical sense of it and the cane marks and just visible gag give a degree of fetish authenticity. The word 'Knight' relates to the Samurai in Japan and as such has a much greater cultural significance there than it has for us, but even we can appreciate that this sort of treatment would be humiliating for an aristocratic warrior-leader of yesteryear. I'm not a fan of historical/fantasy scenarios but it provides an opportunity for the deployment of body straps on body enhancing armour.

Tentakun - Big Brother

I've included this image of 'Big Brother' about to embark on his own knightly quest just because I like it. At least, I assume that's a wrapped up weapon on his shoulder and not a brolly to be shared with the Speedo hunk on the beach! This face has a maturity and capability about it, that is reflected also in the gloves and chunky belt. The tight, cropped top and low waisted trousers show off his natural assets in a very sexy manner but are firmly rooted in modern dress.

This is the humiliating ending of many a knightly quest in Tentakun's universe. Their clothes are ripped off as they are upended for intimate examination etc, etc. This artist credits his tentacle creature with an ability to manipulate it's 'prey' and seek out what it wants in a purposeful manner. This contrasts with many other depictions where the captured man simply has his limbs spread-eagled, sometimes sitting, sometimes suspended in space, while the feelers explore all quarters, indiscriminately it seems. This one doesn't even bother with his wrists, it just takes a firm grip on his waist, finds his pants and rips the back open. This pleasing image, finished with a dash of gloopy slime, owes something to Japanese censorship, a totally naked variant would be much less interesting!

Perhaps I should revise that comment. This equally uncomplicated image is as good a depiction of tentacle invasion as you are likely to see. Again the artist has given the attacking creature human-like thought processes, using it's tentacles to hold the captive down with arms pulled sharply back behind and clamping his buns with side brackets to control movement. The physiology of where these arms come from is a bit vague, but it doesn't seem to matter. The beauty of replacing a human with tentacles is that we can view the action unobstructed by inconvenient bodies.

This isn't the artist's most convincing rendering of human anatomy (it's that double viewpoint again) but it's certainly the most powerful image I have discovered by him, thanks largely to the scary 'alien' creatures borrowed from Sci-Fi horror movies. To show a tentacle creature complete is a bold strategy, horror monsters rarely match their unseen threat when seen in the flesh, as it were. It pays off here, partly because of the groundwork done in those films and also because the compact size seems credible.

The movies don't show these creatures being unleashed on a naked captive with erotic intent. The attack zone between the legs is familiar territory and oral probing equally 'normal' but this face clamping action transforms the image into something much more horrific and life threatening. So much so that the interesting, glutinous restraints and the side-play of nipple encirclement and squeezing can be easily overlooked. There's enough inventiveness here for more than one picture.

Tentakun - Yusa Yuyusa

This is a Japanese Artist working in the Yaoi style so there's often a tricky ambiguity of age in his characters. This one's borderline facially but with an inflated bosom that couldn't possibly belong to a callow youth. The G-string substitutes for the traditional fundoshi, also loaded with significance in Japan. There's a nice animation of this picture here (you'll need a pixiv account to view it).

Tentakun - Hentai Hero Visit

I was tickled by this youthful superhero pausing to cheekily pose for the camera before rescuing the hunk whose clothes are being shredded in the background. This pose, with braced, outstretched leg, is classic body-builder stuff, but Tentakun exploits it's erotic potential with curvaceous buns and root-revealing, diving waistline. (This 90% coverage was also used by Stefan to pep up his muscle-morphs and it's widely used in Asia as an erotic device, which is where I think he got it from).

The best open source of this artist's work I have found is Tentakun on Pixiv, some images are unfortunately afflicted by pixilation but there's a linked 'FanBox', paid feature if you want to see more.
There's also a Tentakun Twitter account

IFNB Revisited

My first article on the International Federation of Naked Bodybuilders (IFNB) blog has become one of my most read posts here. IFNB, for those of you unfamiliar with the term, promotes naked bodybuilding contests in which display of sexual potency is just as important as muscular development. You can find out more by reading my first post, which reviewed the IFNB culture and it's remarkable erotic features. This post revisits IFNB for a look at what happens in contests.

As Competition day approaches the training routines of entrants become ever more intense, but such is the culture of IFNB that rivals help each other by willingly exchanging fluids that are proven to help them achieve peak performance.

Behind the scenes, preparations for the contest include the creation of a new 'Golden Phallus' trophy for the winner. This is always modelled on the previous victor's endowment. Professional Naked Bodybuilders are accustomed to producing sperm repeatedly on-stage and usually find it difficult to stay hard for the lengthy 'sittings' without ejaculating. Their stray splashes are an occupational hazard the sculptor happily accepts for the privilege of creating the prize.


As the big day dawns, contestants and their training teams meet up one last time to exchange thanks and good wishes, knowing they have done everything they can to prepare for the contest.


Competitors must present themselves naked for the registration process. Not surprisingly fans sometimes gatecrash the room to catch a glimpse of their heroes waiting in the queue and for a chance to express their admiration. Competitors usually appreciate the diversion at this tense time and are glad of the opportunity to keep on edge, while giving their admirers something to remember them by.

Two contestants bubble with excitement as they meet the officials for the first time for preliminary vetting.
It's not really part of the competition but these men waste no opportunity to impress and influence.

The official Press Call offers a first chance to see rivals properly at first hand.Many a competitor's confidence has been dented by the realisation that their preparations may not have been quite thorough enough.

Tanning Assistants are on hand to provide the finishing touches.
They are often a valuable source of insider information as to which contestants are in the best form.
There's a thriving secondary market in their discarded clothing.

As the start time approaches the antechambers become a bubbling cauldron of nerves and testosterone. Trainers do their best to calm the nerves of their athletes, but in spaces crowded with naked male flesh, primed competitors have been known to spontaneously mount their rivals, thereby gaining relief  and disorienting the opposition at a stroke.

 The pre-contest milking establishes a common starting point for assessing the sexual stamina which successful contestants have to demonstrate on stage. It's not unknown for inexperienced candidates to falter at this first fence, but the day can be saved by their Sponsors who are permitted to supply last-minute stimulation and will pull out all the stops to ensure the fruits of their investment do not go to waste.

A friendly helping hand from the Coach just before going on stage helps to overcome last minute nerves.

Once on stage all anxieties are forgotten as competitors focus on showcasing their assets for the Judges.
The enthusiastic approval of the noisy audience is a source of great pride for the men.

It's a thin line between success and failure.
Illegal interference from an out-classed rival successfully disrupted this entrant's routine.

After the contest the Press and admiring fans eagerly crowd round the winner, no doubt hoping his star quality will rub off on them.

Victory celebrations can continue into the early hours.
This popular star kept an excited, admiring crowd up for many hours.


The images and ideas in this post are entirely the work of the anonymous blogger at IFNB,
all credit his due to him and I recommend you to visit his brilliant site.
2021 Update: This blog has now sadly disappeared. I'm looking at the possibility of a further article by way of tribute and will link it here when it's published
