This print magazine — Pledges & Paddles Volume IV, published by Outbound Press in 2000 — has 64 pages of stories and pictures about frat hazing. All the stories feature male-on-male bondage, and many also have themes of humiliation, homoerotic pranks, and sex. Among the most memorable of the “true” stories is one called “Ex-Marine Pledges a Frat,” which was a prequel to a much longer story called “The Marine and the Sissy.”
In addition to the fantastic collection of stories is a large number of very high-quality photographs, as well as several hot, full-page illustrations by the male erotic artists Cavello, Leo Ravenswood, Sean, and Titus. I am impressed with the quality of this publication, which is one of many specialty issues of Bound & Gagged compiled back in the day by the publisher Bob Wingate.
Bob’s website is here, although he has not updated it in some time.
I will be mailing this magazine, along with two other regular issues of Bound & Gagged, to SpacePupSilver, who is working on assembling a complete set. Are there any other collectors of these magazines out there? If so, who’s got what? I encourage anyone who has these to give them away or trade, rather than sell.
Sadly, it appears that the New York Bondage Club is gone. They shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, and that apparently was it. The club’s website has been down for some time now, and emails and IMs I have sent to the guys who used to run the club have gone unanswered.
This makes me very sad, because in my view bondage clubs — where you can play in a safe space with other people present, or just watch — are a great place to learn and explore, especially for newbies in the scene.
I had so many great times at the New York Bondage Club over the years. When I moved to NYC in 1992 it was the very first place I went! And my very first time there, I met and got tied up by none other than Bob Wingate and James Bond themselves, of Bound & Gagged magazine! I became a regular there, going almost every Friday night for years on end, starting at J’s Hangout, then various places in Chelsea including most recently Paddles.
Here on the Metalbond site, I will leave the many postings about the New York Bondage Club up, but I am removing the links to their website that no longer exists.
Meanwhile, for those of you who live in other cities that still have bondage clubs, I encourage you to patronize them!
The Southern California Bondage Club in North Hollywood is active!
A Metalbond reader shared the links below to TWO online auctions, for a large selection of vintage Bound & Gagged male BDSM print magazines:
As well as what looks like a very large selection of vintage VHS male bondage tapes, including titles from Zeus, Grapik Art and others:
I don’t know who is selling these items, but I do hope they find a good home!
A friend is cleaning out his attic in preparation for a move, and he has a large collection of vintage male porn magazines he’s like to sell to a good home. These titles include publications from Larry Townsend, Zeus, Bound and Gagged, and many others.
These magazines are from the pre-VHS, pre-INTERNET days — when the only source for such materials was to visit adult bookstores! Some time ago…

In a collection of male-on-male bondage stories called “The Scott Chronicles,” preppy Mike writes about his bondage adventures with Scott, a paid escort who has a huge cock and is amazing with rope. Mike was so enthralled that he got Scott to leave the escort agency, set him up in his own house, and worshipped him as his personal bondage Master for over ten years. It all begins with “The Corporal Performs,” in which Mike writes about his youthful bondage experiences in the Marine Corps.
There are also three stories about The Training Center/Academy, the legendary BDSM institution where Scott and Mike spent one memorable weekend.
This collection is highly recommended. But much of the action is “do not try this at home,” so please be advised and forewarned!
This is an eBook on Kindle, but you don’t need an actual Kindle device to read it.

In “Bullies & Victims, Volume 2,” now available as an eBook from Bob Wingate, Brad has beaten and humiliated Bobby’s cousin Tony in an attempt to turn him into his second slave. He has forced Bobby to participate, and even intimated to Tony that the whole thing was Bobby’s plan. There’s no question that Tony will seek revenge, or that he’ll bring along his own best buddy, a scary scrapper named Kyle, to carry it out. Everything comes to a head at a BDSM Christmas party to end all BDSM Christmas parties. Or seems to. Because things get much worse for Bobby after that.
Bullies & Victims, Volume 2 is available here
Bullies & Victims, Volume 1 available here
Note that these are Kindle Edition books, but you don’t have to have a Kindle to read them.
