Well, I knew this day would eventually come, and as the old adage goes, "All good things must come to an end". Having said that, this blog is ending its weekly updates with this post.
The question my blog visitors will be asking is why? Well there are a few reasons. Recently, John, they guy who has been tying me to his massage table for the past three and a half years has let me know that due to other business commitments, he will not be in the area to much any more. Over the past few years, John has given me awesome bondage rides of me tied to his massage table in the Straight Jacket and various kicks I felt like wearing for a particular session. John was a trusting bondage partner, who I could trust into putting me into heavy bondage and I felt quite safe. John also took pictures, which provided me material and write stories about each of the scenes I was able to share. I will definitely miss these bondage rides.
Second, while I like to get tied up, I also like to tie up guys. Finding guys who are "for real" is becoming a much more difficult task. I would like to share some history about my bondage time on the Internet.
Back in 1998, when the Internet was in its infancy, there were some bondage websites out there, but my fetishes were bondage and sneakers, primarily Converse High Tops and Asics Wrestling Shoes, either me tied up wearing sneakers or the guys I tied up wearing sneakers. At the time, these sites really did not exist. One of the first sites that came on line was Captured Guys. The link to their website is capturedguys.com. This site is actually still up and running, though is a pay site. Another one was Bound and Gagged Magazine.
With the internet starting to grow, over Christmas vacation in 1998, I started a small website called Levis, Sneakers and Rope, which depicted guys I tied up wearing sneakers, or me tied up wearing various sneakers. It was started on an AOL website, and it became a success. Back then, I was still living in Virginia outside of Washington, D.C. As the site and the internet started to grow, I found no problems finding guys who wanted to tie me up, and take pictures for the website, or be tied up and photoed for the website, and it was fun. I found out and many other guys found out that they were not the only ones in the world who found it to be a turn on to tie up a guy and play with him while he was wearing sneakers or be tied up wearing sneakers.
In 1999 I moved to North Carolina, where I found no problems finding guys for bondage fun and pictures. Many of these guys were either College or Military Boys wanting to explore bondage, either being tied up or tying me up, thinking it was a blast to play around and have our escapades caught on camera and posted on the Internet. I had met Ethan from Sockgagged twice when he was in the process of getting his site up and running and needed some bondage pictures of him. Also, I was communicating with Bob Wingate from Bound and Gagged and the late James Bond, who was a bondage guru. Both Bob and James were very encouraging. In fact, James Bond was tying up guys wearing wet suits and other outfits with sneakers or jeans and sneakers, and doing it long before it was fashionable. The bondage escapades continued until June, 2005. It was at this time the United States Government began to frown on bondage web sites, and most of the sites based in the United States literally fell off the face of the earth overnight, including Levis, Sneakers and Rope. Actually up until that time my site depicted guys tied up wearing sneakers fully dressed with no nudity or porn. Of course there was play to.
In 2009 sites started to return. I started this blog at the end of September, 2009. I was able to repost all of the pictures that appeared on Levis, Sneakers and Rope, as well bondage pictures I had in storage from June, 2005 until September, 2009. I was still finding bondage fun both ways, and had pictures of these escapades for the blog. I was also able to find other pictures of guys tied up wearing assorted sneakers with jeans or shorts for this blog as well, though over the past four years, pictures on this blog were exclusive my work of guys I tied up or me tied up, always starting the scene in jeans, shorts or sneakers, though there were scenes done in Sport Bike Riding Outfits with sneakers as well, and I actually one time had an awesome time tied up in a neoprene wetsuit.
Over the past few years, I still found guys who wanted to be tied up and photoed, but most of my bondage escapades was with John was helping me out, not only giving me bondage rides in a safe, sane and trusting setting, but taking pictures so I could write about each scene as well. On the links, all of these scenes are labeled Massage Table or Massage Table bondage. I did scenes in the straight jacket tied to the bondage table wearing assorted sneakers, though by this time, I also found Sanuk Vagabond Sidewalk Surf Shoes hot, and caught a number of scenes of me tied up wearing them. (I also tied up a few guys wearing them to).
So, with not having a regular bondage partner any longer, and no one else to play with on a regular basis, I did not want to put up a post, then vanish without an explanation, and a thanks to all of those who have visited my sites and found enjoyment in the site through the years.
A few things I am proud of is that Levis Sneakers and Rope which ran from December 1998 until June of 2005, a total of five and one half years, and this blog which ran from September, 2009 until July 2017, almost eight years. Between the two sites, I have posted bondage pics to the net a total of fourteen years. This has even outlived most pay sites, and never had an interest in turning either site into a pay site
My first love is Converse High Tops, and the Extra High or Knee High Converse High Tops. I also love Asics Wrestling Shoes, Vans Sneakers, (have two pairs of Vans High Tops), LL Bean Duck Boots, Canvas Sperry Top Sider Sneakers, Minnetonka Suede Boots and Sanuk Vagabond Sidewalk Surf Shoes. I think with the Vans High Tops, the Converse Extra High Tops, the Canvas Sperry Topsiders, Pro Keds Sneakers, PF Flyer Sneakers and the Sanuk Vagabond Sidewalk Surf Shoes, while I know I am not the only guy who likes to be tied up wearing these kicks or tie up guys wearing these kicks, in many cases, I think I am one of the few who have caught these on camera and posted the pictures.
As I said, I did not want to put up a post, then just vanish never to be heard from again, so here are the plans going forward. I do plan to leave this blog up. If you are a fiend into assorted kicks, and like to read stories, this blog will continue to provide you a lot of entertainment. Also, if you are interested in a scene, give me a shout, I am always interested in a scene. I love working with guys new to the scene, so they can turn their fantasies into reality in a safe, sane and trusting setting.
In addition to this blog, I have four blogs on Tumbler that have been created. Going forward, any future bondage pictures done by me will be posted to either Asicswrestone on Tumbler on Bondage in Converse, so do check these blogs from time to time. Also, I will continue to scour the web, so you never know what I might come across on the web that will be posted to Asicswestone Web. The links to each of these Tumbler Blogs are below.
Asicswrestone on Tumbler - This blog is pictures of me tied up or guys I have tied up, primarily in a Straight Jacket.
Bondage in Converse - This is a blog I created of me tied up wearing Converse Sneakers or guys I tied up wearing Converse Sneakers. There are also some pictures of me tied up or guys I tied up wearing Vans Sneakers, or Sanuk Vagabond Sidewalk Surf Shoes, but for the Converse and Vans bondage fiends, there are pictures here that were culled fro the web as well.
Asicswrestone Bondage - A few pictures from the web are here, but this site is mostly me tied up or guys I tied up who were not in a Straight Jacket.
Asicswrestone Web - This blog is pictures of guys from other websites in various sneakers and some boots.
E - Mail - Feel free to e mail me by clicking on this link. Please put "Bondage" in the subject line, so I don't delete your e mail with the junk. Also, if you wrote to me, and think you did not get a response, check your junk mail or spam folder.
As I said, do continue to visit this blog as the mood hits you or my Tumbler Blogs. I am still open to playing as well. Thanks to all who have enjoyed my work all these years.
Also, Bob Wingate from Bound and Gagged Magazine who had a blog has not posted anything since Thanksgiving 2016, so if anyone knows what may have happened, I would appreciate hearing from you. While I never met Bob personally, he was very encouraging about my bondage escapades and websites starting with the Levis, Sneakers and Rope days. Bob was kind enough to me a link from his blog to my blog when I had started out.
