Some recent articles in the news featuring lockup and lockdown

I’ve blogged about the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment a number of times before. For those who are not familiar, it was a prison role-play “experiment” conducted back in the 1970s with male college students, who were divided into groups of guards and prisoners. The experiment quickly went off the rails and had to be ended early. The guards got too sadistic and the prisoners too rebellious. There is tons of literature about this in psychology textbooks and at least one movie. This article revisiting the experiment appeared in today’s New York Times and caught my eye — especially the picture! The gist of the article is that the academic psychological community would not allow such an experiment to be conducted again today. And this is a shame, because I think re-doing the experiment again — with a better facility and better planning — would be fucking hot! I wish someone would volunteer to write a story based on this, for the Metalbond Prison Library! Reach out to me if you are interested.

In other recent news, Squirm of Rubberzone passed along this link to a story about a man in Washington state who broke into an escape room and then called 911 when he could not get out! What do you guys think of the escape room craze? Who among us has participated? Again I think this would make a great story for the Prison Library!

Would you rather be a guard or a prisoner?

Hey, how many of you guys ever heard of the Stanford Prison Experiment? This really happened back in the early 1970s, and I remember it being covered in a psychology class I took in college. The experiment was aborted because it got too intense. Now, there is a new movie coming out about it. Here’s the trailer:

 

In my own personal view, this experiment was conducted very poorly and the professor in charge of the whole thing was really a kook, but I’m definitely going to see this when it comes out.

This was also documented quite extensively in this BBC documentary, and on the Stanford Instructional Television Network.

There was also a fictional movie on the same theme, called Das Experiment.

 

Emails from prisoners, future chastity slaves and bondage carpenters

Here are some recent emails from readers of this blog:

G’Day Metal,

The Padded Cell series was quite fascinating, and I followed along from start to finish. My interests run to extended bondage and similar confinement, so I enjoyed every post and photo. Have yet to do anything that intense, but I DID endure a lockdown in a small basement crawl space chained by a heavy, 3-foot logging chain from steel neck collar to a wall ring. No release and minimal contact for 4 days. I did OK for the four days, although was pretty quickly bored out of my skull. Like to think I could have extended that, but 3 weeks in a padded cell? The thought excites but the reality might be a bit much for this old bondage freak.

You can perhaps understand that I’d like to get in contact with The Warden to discuss this sort of thing. Some of the arrangements in the cell I was in might be of interest to him.

Dear Metal,

Last winter I had a few large oak trees come down with the severe ice storms that we had in NC. I’m going to have them cut up into lumber for flooring on one of my trailers. There is much more than I need for that project, so I’m thinking of making some bondage furniture. I’ve already put some feelers out at the NYBC for ideas.

So put on your thinking cap or put it out there on your blog and let’s see if we can make some hot/unique furniture. I have a pretty good set of woodworking tools and skills. Let me know what you think!

Dear North Carolina,

I think it is a great idea to make some bondage furniture!  You can’t go wrong with stocks, or if the wood is HEAVY and THICK it might be great to make a confinement box!

Please send pictures of what you make!

Hello Metal,

I have been looking at your site for a while and think that it is great! I would do anything to be your next chastity test subject. I have always wanted to try chastity but have not had the guts to go and purchase a device. I have also never had anyone willing enough to allow me to try a chastity device as well.

Let me know if this is anything that you are interested in trying.

Hope to talk to you soon

Hey there fballboy,

I can’t hook you up with a cock cage at the moment, but I will give you some ORDERS!

Here’s what I want you to do. Go to your local sporting goods store and buy yourself a CUP JOCK. That’s right. I want you to get yourself a hard cup — the same kind athletes wear. (When you buy it, I want you to check out at the register with the hottest guy, too!) You are to wear the cup jock for one week. That’s right, for the next SEVEN DAYS you are to wear the cup constantly, under your clothes at work, to the gym, when you are out with friends, etc. Also I want you to wear the cup jock to BED AT NIGHT. The only time you may take the cup jock off is to shower, and then it goes back on. This will, of course, mean no beating off for a week.

Then report back after your sentence is up.

Dear Metal,

Half way through the night — in my cell in pitch darkness — I lost it and started screaming and pulling at my chains. I got rock hard as I realized there was nothing I could do about it … and that was only about 12 hours in! Movement was so restricted — double chains running down from the collar to the wrist and ankle shackles.

— from an anonymous reader

The anonymous reader also sent PICTURES, but they are not for posting unfortunately. Let me just say the pictures are among the hottest I have ever seen. He’s in a striped inmate’s uniform, chained by the hands, feet and NECK with a THICK, HEAVY metal collar!

Dear Metal,

Seeing the 3-week-long session The Warden did gave me an idea for a story line. Setting a museum (a science), a 3-month display on prison and prisoner conduct. Intake of the prisoners, with help from the local jail, would start off with a week in the “real” jail, then the people who are the prisoners transferred to the display. The cells will be monitored by the visitors by closed-circuit TV.

Have a set of guards and have solitary as well as a padded cell.

Dear Gene,

What a great idea for a story! This reminds me a bit about the Stanford Prison Experiment and the movie Das Experiment, which I have written about here on Metalbond in the past.

Anyway, I love bondage stories, especially when they involve lockup of prisoners, and hopefully your idea will inspire someone to write something interesting and send it to me!

Metalbond,

I am loving your website. I found it a couple of months ago and find myself checking it a couple of times a day for updates. I love the photos of course, but the stories are really amazing. I’m dying to find out when The Bear Trap saga will continue. I’m so anxious to hear more of the story.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you have another fan and I hope you keep up the good work. I appreciate it and my dick loves it.

Thanks,

Lance

Dear Lance,

Thanks very much for the email, and I am so glad you enjoy the Bear Trap series! It’s one of my favorite stories as well and I am thrilled to be able to share it here on the site.

Dear Metal,

I get off on all kinds of m2m kink and BDSM, etc. Will be 87 in June but not ready to still feel the pain being more of a masochistic pain pig. There is something hard and very masculine about metal as it’s so unforgiving and sadistically macho. Got initiated after being picked up in a San Francisco bar in 1961 and became a totally addicted pain pig. Founded an SM club here in Vancouver in 1982, and it still exists. Called Vancouver Activists in SM, the web site is www.vasm.bc.ca. GMSMA helped me with info when I was setting up the club. Became a member of Chicago Hellfire Club in 1984 and remain an associate.

Dear skindad,

Thanks VERY MUCH for writing! I think it is awesome that you are going strong at 87!

Hello,

Sent you an e-mail a few days back and you have not responded. I thought that in your blog you say that you respond to all e-mails. Sorry if I have bothered you.

Hey guy,

This blog is a part-time hobby for me, not a full-time job, so I can’t promise I’ll write back immediately. But I always try to respond to everyone eventually. Thanks for being patient with me.
