A number of readers got in touch about a particular two-part story I recently posted. Thank you for the feedback. I wish to express my apologies for those who got turned off with that one. That story features a dark fantasy that one writer wanted to share — but many readers pointed out that it went too far, especially in the second part, crossing the line from consensual play into abuse. It’s definitely not something that should be done in real life. I thought about deleting the story altogether, but I have since gone back and added a warning message to both parts of the story.
UPDATE: After receiving more comments and emails from concerned readers about the story, I have decided to delete it from the Metalbond site. If the author posts it elsewhere I will share a link.
This offers a good opportunity to point out that while men are depicted on this website being bound, restrained, tied up and dominated — everything depicted here is presumed to be consensual. The stories are for fantasy and jerking off, not to be carried out in real life.

There are a number of articles available online about the difference between healthy BDSM activity and abuse.
Sir Dart and Sir Bart are coming back to London Fetish Week for the second year and putting on one of their bondage workshops. It takes place on Saturday afternoon 15th July, tickets are £16 in advance only. This time the two workshops are on predicament bondage and mummification. And they are needing a few victims, oops, volunteers for the demonstrations!
