Batman and Robin sure got tied up a lot on TV!
It was when I got home from school that I would watch syndicated episodes of the campy TV show Batman from the 1960s. It seemed that at the end of just about every episode the heroes Batman and Robin — played by Adam West and Burt Ward — ended up in some form of diabolical bondage. Often there were two-part episodes in which Batman and Robin would be tied up in a cliffhanger. Usually these episodes ended with the heroes tied up and facing some sort of slow and painful death. I would walk away imagining the heroes were still bound — even when I went to sleep at night.
Looking back on it now, it seems that Burt Ward was more into the bondage, more enthusiastic, more in on the whole thing, gave much better “verbal” — whereas Adam West played it much more “straight’” if you will.
Anyway, I credit the original TV show Batman (available at Amazon), along with the movie 20,0000 Leagues Under the Sea, with sparking my interest in erotic male physical restraint.
