A bit more about Leo Ravenswood, who is arguably one of the most important male bondage erotic artists:
Mitchell of the popular Mitchmen site writes, “He covered the more exotic byways of bondage fetish such as pony training, lace up restraints and body bags, head harnesses and suspension … His captives are forced into restraining sleeves and made to adopt awkward positions which are both painful and humiliating.”
You can read Mitchell’s full write-up here.
