The Making of ‘The Tournament Affair’

The information below is from @reconkayar, co-author with @mmmph82 of the male bondage story “The Tournament Affair.” If you haven’t read this fiction, click here.

I never sat down intending to write a bondage story.

Sometime in October of 2023, while I was on social media cultivating new like-minded contacts in the kink community – looking mostly for online company and conversation – I connected with a personable fellow kinkster called Denny – @mmmph82. We’ll call him Denny In-Real-Life – “IRL Denny” – to distinguish him from the character.

IRL Denny and I weren’t an obvious match – he’s fascinated by kidnap fantasies and long-term captivity. My attraction is more to casual, switch bondage sessions, with very little backstory and emphasis on moderate-length, challenging struggle episodes.  But we found common ground on our shared attraction to heavy bondage ties, gags, and guys in leather gear and boots.

After some get-acquainted time, Denny encouraged me to join him in some online role-play chat, spinning a kidnap scene with him as victim. I was reluctant.  “I’m TERRIBLE at this sort of thing,” I thought to myself, “and I don’t really LIKE kidnap fantasies…”

In the end, he persuaded me – maybe it’d turn out to be a sexy little diversion at a challenging moment in Denny’s personal life and my own, I thought – so we started chatting.  We did only a minimal amount of stage setting between us – he liked the idea that his character would catch a ride with a gaming team and then be drawn into an abduction, and I loved the narrative of “just let us tie your hands” that turns into something much more serious.

And off we went. In a nutshell, that is the story of how “The Tournament Affair” got written. After that first evening chatting and roleplaying, we called it a night, looked for one another online the next day, and picked up where we left off.  And the next day. And the day after that. For weeks upon weeks.  Yes, the ENTIRE story was improvised in role-play chat between IRL Denny and me.

There were several “light-bulb” moments during those early weeks of creating the story.  First and foremost, I learned I was correct about myself from the start – I AM TERRIBLE at role play.  The staccato back-and-forth of a stimulating role-play chat is totally beyond me.  When prompted to add the next line to a role play story, I instinctively produce detailed narrative.  So – IRL Denny writes a line, I write a paragraph.  IRL Denny writes another line.  I write three paragraphs. And thus what started out as a back-and-forth imagination exercise turned into a 12-chapter, 56,000 word novel.

At another key moment, a couple of weeks in, I asked IRL Denny to do me a favor – could he please take responsibility for preserving the story? It was clear to me we were creating something that people might want to read later. And yet all the text to the story was embodied only in X/Twitter DMs, with story text mixed in with any non-story discussion IRL Denny and I were having. And he agreed, issuing requests to X/Twitter support to make full chat downloadable in a single file.  And still, the story continued to spin out.

Only very occasionally did IRL Denny and I ever stop to plan out the upcoming twists in the story.  Instead, most of the time we simply improvised the story, each of us adjusting to what the other one put out. Nearly 100 percent of Denny’s dialogue and thoughts as they appear in the story were written by IRL Denny, and most of the non-dialogue narrative and actions and words of the teammates (not to mention those of Ken, since I’m IRL Ken) were written by me.

Respective kink interests of us both are reflected in the story.  All the thoughts about kidnapping and abduction, stealth measures, and gear, GOM activity, and notions of abduction and “disappearance” came from the mind of IRL Denny.  The detailed rope tying descriptions, constant gagging and re-gagging are mostly my own contributions.  And we both came together on our shared fetishes for manscent, leather smell, and boots.

Especially as the story wound down, there was much suspense between the two of us about how the story would conclude.  The ambivalence of the Denny character was reflected in the thoughts of IRL Denny. As I wrote Nathan’s and Ben’s dialogue in Parts 10 and 11, I was not at all certain whether IRL Denny would permit his character to utter voluntary consent to kidnap training, or if instead that would prove be a bridge too far for Denny, and the character would walk off into the night, The End. We settled these issue as we wrote, leading to the transition at the end of Part 11 and the dramatic opening of Part 12.

Taking the downloaded raw content from PDF format DM chat and turning it into publishable prose was a punishing exercise all its own – an exercise that took nearly two months of sustained effort. The downloaded file sent by X/Twitter support came to 950 pages of raw dialogue, all of which I needed to sift through to discard extraneous chatting, not to mention conduct a seemingly endless cleanup of grammar and wording. Esteemed kink friend @JarheadTop, who was drawn to the story on his initial read, was something of a savior, stepping up to review and edit the story with fresh eyes. He and Metal, our publisher, deserve massive credit for careful review and copy editing.  Only with their generous help did “The Tournament Affair” transform into as cohesive and readable a piece of writing as you’re seeing in the published work. We are grateful to them both. It’s no exaggeration to call “The Tournament Affair” a novel – it prints out at 145 pages.

Even now, I’m a bit agog that we created such distinctive and multidimensional characters as Nathan, Ari, Chad, and Ben turned out to be – all out of thin air, and all in the context of an improvised role-play chat. The reactions I get from the readers who have contacted me is that many feel as much of a connection to the four teammates as we do – I personally believe that IRL Denny has had serial crushes on each of the teammates at least once! And all this makes me excited about writing more stories built around the same characters, but not in DM format next time (please!).

All of us send our thanks those who made “The Tournament Affair” one of the most enjoyed male bondage stories on the Internet.


Metal would like to thank @reconkayar for the information above.

Part 12 – Chaos and Isolation

Immediately, the office is in chaos. French doors to the office burst open, and four guys in SWAT uniforms with masked faces all surround Denny. They all have paintball weapons, and they are pointed at him. They are also screaming.


Before he can compose himself, the chair is pulled out from under him and he tries to kneel and keep his hands up. A metal barrel pokes him – there is so much happening that he can’t be sure whether or not the weapons are real.

“Wait, I thought it was you all. I don’t know these other guys. Wait, no no no!”

Denny’s hands are up, and he is on the floor.

“FACE DOWN! FACE DOWN!” one of the masked guys yells as they yank his phone away from him. As Denny goes down he briefly looks up and catches sight of Nathan and Ben. They are looking straight at him, saying nothing, calm as can be.

Denny’s hands are yanked behind his back and restrained with two pairs of handcuffs. Another one of the force is cuffing his ankles together. The third force member pulls Denny’s ankles up, folding his knees, and he zip-ties Denny’s ankle cuffs tightly to his handcuffs. He is hogchained and helpless.

Part 11 – The Townhouse

Another hour has passed. The van is making city turns, and Denny deduces they are getting into town and probably close to the men’s house. Time has become completely fluid during this episode, and Denny realizes he’s got very little clue what time it might be. But as the loading doors open, Denny realizes there’s very little noise outside, and he surmises from the apparent lack of traffic that it’s the wee hours of the morning.

About 10 minutes pass. Denny and Ken hear the men unloading gear and cases while they lie hogtied, gagged, and muzzled on the bunk beside one another. Then they hear a side door of the van slide open. One of the men comes back and begins undoing the hogtie tether from Ken’s head, then Denny’s. It’s Ben, Denny can smell him.

He unties the men’s legs and helps them out of the bunk. “Let’s go, men.” He brings Ken to the side door first, then Denny. The van is right up at the curb, with Chad and Ari on either side of the path in, providing a screen to deflect curiosity from anyone who might be on the street at 2am.

Each of the captives gets seated in a guest chair after being ushered into the house, a brownstone six steps above ground level.

Part 10 – Eat & Run

In two adjacent isolation cells, the captives are being prepared to sit down for a meal. They’re being kept bound and gagged, so the preparation is a little unusual. Not to mention they are still recovering from particularly intense experiences.

Denny has been lowered by hoist to the padded floor of the cell, and Ben unlocks his head from the VR helmet. Ben releases Denny’s legs from the hogtie and stands him up. Denny’s arms are bound in a rope harness, and his head is buckled into a black leather muzzle, covering a silicone gag in his mouth. Ben moves in and wraps his muscular body around Denny, pressing him into a bear hug.

“Mmmmphhmmmmm timenmmm let mmmmp go Mmmph?” (“is it time to be let go?”)

He moans and his eyes adjust to the light, and he sees the padded room where he has been kept a few hours. It is an isolation room. A cell.

His head touches Ben’s masked face and leans on his shoulder.

Ben’s gloved hand reaches out and gently presses Denny’s head into his shoulder. The warm smell of Ben’s leather and his man musk nearly overwhelms Denny.

Part 9 – Swinging

While Ken is in his cell, bound and gagged in the chair getting an education in what “edging” means, Denny is still getting his VR therapy in the neighboring cell. He is hogtied and attached to the ceiling, struggling in highly constrictive bondage, gagged with Silencilicone and locked into a VR device controlling his vision and audio.

“Denny?” The voice is back on the VR audio. It’s Chad again.

Denny slowly wakes up and snaps out of what was in his mind. He struggles a little after figuring out he’s on the floor.


“Denny. I know you can’t speak to me anymore. But we can still communicate. I have access to your head movements. So I know whether you nod yes or no. And of course I can still hear you. So you can utter some sounds like “mmm hmmm,” or “unh unh” if you want to say yes or no.”

“Grrmpphhhmmmm!” Denny shakes his head no, trying to figure out what happened since he emerged from hypnosis.

“No. No, you can’t. Denny. But it’s okay. It’s okay. I’m here. I’m here. We can keep talking. Does that make you feel a little better?”


“Denny, are you with me? I can’t take care of you if you don’t talk to me.”

“Mmmmmmphhh, mmmmmm, mee, mmmmouutt” (let me out). He pushes on the tongue of his gag and moves his hands tightly tied in his hogtie.

Update from Metal on ‘The Tournament Affair’ and list of characters

Hey prisoners, I hope you have been enjoying the The Tournament Affair saga, which has been appearing in the Prison Library for the past two weeks. I will be posting the next chapter in a few hours, so be sure to check back just after midnight Eastern time. There are 12 chapters in all.

metalbond prison library


For those of you who might not be up to speed, I wanted to give a brief list of the main characters in the story:

Denny (aka Den) — He’s a college student who happens to have strong kidnap fantasies. He recently moved to the area, and he asked for a ride on the message board for an online RPG he’s been lurking on. When the hot guys who picked him up in a van ask if they can tie him up for a sec, he falls right into their trap!

Ben — An expert in tight and effective rope bondage. He’s the Black Team’s rigger, with a big bag of restraints and a seemingly endless supply of gags. Like all the Black Team members, Ben wears leather gloves the whole time — and when he’s not tying up Denny he can’t help himself from sniffing his gloves constantly!

Nathan — He’s the muscular ringleader of the Black Team.

Chad — He’s Denny’s protector, the “nice” one.

Ari — This 6-foot-tall hedonist is clad in full leather and tall boots and oozes sex appeal.

Ken — A member of the Desert Team who ends up kidnapped himself, right alongside Denny!

These notes are my own. The authors, @reconkayar and @mmmph82, have some longer back stories for each of these characters that they will leave in the comments below.

If you have not yet read ‘The Tournament Affair’ you can start with Part 1 by clicking here.

After the final chapter of ‘The Tournament Affair’ is posted there will be many NEW stories coming to the Metalbond site, so be sure to keep coming back.  And as always, when you are reading stories in the Prison Library, it is highly recommended that you be restrained in some way. You might tie your ankles together with a necktie, or snap on a set of police handcuffs, be locked in chastity — or be like Soccerslave (pictured) and put yourself in locking leather restraints with keys secured in a keysafe!

The Tournament Affair – Part 08

By @reconkayar and @mmmph82

Part 8 – Edging

Ari and Nathan have escorted Ken to the second padded room. Ben follows them.  Once they get into the room, Nathan shuts the door behind and dims the lights.  The walls are bright white, as is the floor – in this room it has white rubber matting with a floor drain – and Nathan wants to soothe Ken, not assault his eyes.

He slides the hood off of Ken, and Ken takes in the surroundings. His arms are still bound in a rope harness, and he has a multi layered cowboy bandanna gag on.

In front of him is a strange looking chair, and it startles Ken. It’s a seat with fixed recline, but on a metal frame with a curved seat bottom. Padded frame components stretch out in a V from the seat, and it seems to Ken it’s meant to be sat in with legs spread.  There are curved pads beneath where the thighs go, and upholstered pads on the lower parts, above the foot pads, where calves could slip into. The leg pockets half-remind Ken of a massage chair at the mall, but this looks much more diabolical than anything he’s seen before.

The room is a whole other experience.  It is certainly a padded cell, insulated from noise. In fact, all ambient noise is gone, and Ken wonders if he’ll be kept prisoner there.  His heart is starting to thump with concern.

The Tournament Affair – Part 07

Part 7 – The Cabin

Denny squirms in his bondage and listens. He is grateful for the extra movement he got from Nathan undoing the tethers. But he still can’t get his head anywhere near the bunk rim to see down. Nathan and Ari have gone ahead to take stock at the cabin, leaving Chad and Ben. Ben is down with Ken, changing his gag and binding him for transport. It’s a three-rope box tie similar to what Denny had in for the escape to the getaway van.

Ben reties Ken’s cloth gag: two bandannas worked into his mouth, followed by a knotted bandanna as a cleave gag over the stuffing, and two layers of seal pulled very tight and knotted, covering Ken’s full face below his nose. It feels tight and sexy to Ken, but Ben is aware that, with some work, Ken might possibly eject it. There’ll be enough time later to fix that. Meantime Chad appears to tend to Denny. Chad sits by Denny’s head and tries to comfort him, gently stroking his temple with a gloved hand and locking eyes with him.

Denny tears up a little to see Chad. His face has always been tender and understanding. Chad wipes his tears away, saying “shhhh.” Chad has brought clothes – they’re not moving Denny in naked. He’s preparing to dress Denny, but it isn’t happening yet. They’re Denny’s same shirt, cargo pants and tactical boots he had before.

“You spent a whole day bound and gagged wearing these, bro,” Chad said. “You will probably want them washed.” Chad reaches for Denny’s shirt, bunches it up, brings it to his own face and sniffs deeply.

“Mmmmmm. Or not…”

Ben’s voice is heard from below, “INCOMING!” as he tosses a small plastic packet over the bunk rim. It lands by Denny’s head, and Chad picks it up. “Oh, new gloves. Team rules, new stop, new gloves.”
