the end of a story

that’s not easy for me but it’s time to say “good-bye” …
as expected, after 16 years online, Captive Culture is going to close.

I have to stop my websites very soon.
After my company closed, I took several weeks to think about the situation.
Unfortunately, there is no other option.

First, the free area will be removed shortly.
If you want to save something from the blog, it’s up to you now.

I will give more time to the members area …
you will be able to download my content before I stop everything.

One single page linking to social networks will be added.
I don’t know about the future, maybe I would continue to share my pics like this.
Life is complicated, even more when you deal with health issues.
That’s also the reason I have to start a shutdown process.

I will be happy to keep in touch on Twitter / @captiveculture
As we say in France … “au revoir les amis” !

nice day to play with physical restraint !

2006, July 08 : after one night of sleep, we started another shooting with Mina and Anais who joined us for Sunday. On this set, she worked as the assistant and played with the vibrator while I was fighting with my camera and camcorder. We didn’t capture a lot of video because I was more focused on photography. Initially, I wanted to do a sequel of the photo series with Anais bound and naked on the pink chair but we changed the set-up using some white lingerie and nylon stockings. Instead o sharing another picture of the whole scene, I thought this portrait would be more interesting mainly because you can see my ropes around the neck of Mina :) That’s something I like to do with the girls which have been tied many times. When you know the partner, it’s safe to play if you know how to block the ropes. The physical restraint was slightly increased and brought a nice feeling to Mina … of course, this position wasn’t easy but we all know pain is a powerful engine for the pleasure. You can clearly see on the pic those ropes were like a collar for Mina which was already dealing with tight elbows in the back ! After a while, we even changed the position to avoid any problem with the shoulders. If you check the related links below, you will get another picture showing Mina being teased by the magic wand vibrator. As usual, Anais enjoyed to play with Mina and I tried to capture everything about this game. For the little story, we shot another set after this one and Mina got a sweet revenge binding Anais. As a skilled bondage model, she already knew how to use my ropes but that’s another story !

nice day for an inverted suspension !

2006, July 07 : I don’t remember why but Mina was alone with me for shooting. We started on the ground with a lot of ropes and, quickly, I brought the magic wand vibrator to tease our lovely lady. Arms in the back, semi-suspended to the beam, Mina had to kneel and the position was pretty uncomfortable. But, instead of following this way, we decided to keep the legs tied like that for another idea. Because there was no assistant, I released the hands of Mina before to build an inverted suspension which has been short but intense … as you can see, I got enough time to catch few pics and I must say the result was looking great. Mina was totally exposed and I guess you would have a lot of ideas in mind if you have been in the room :) After this nice try, I tested another way to tie the arms : Mina became a puppet trapped in my ropes but we didn’t forget to play with the magic wand. That’s the first time I used a stick to hold the vibrator and if the result isn’t aesthetic, her feeling was great. Every kinky woman love to be suspended in the air but if you add some vibes, you bring her to another dimension ! In the end, I even added a red ball-gag you should like … finally, the photo series has been full of ideas we explored together. During this afternoon, I discovered shooting Mina alone was a nice way to build a stronger relationship with she. I could please her needs about strict restraint and her taste for nudity was allowing me to add another erotic side to my photography. Slowly, the link between us became stronger and we needed more than a year to reach a next step. In my mind, Mina joined the circle of those women able to be one source of inspiration … not only for the duo sessions or her natural beauty, no, the essential was outhere. I need to read the mind of a model and that’s difficult when you’re always in the hurry with several people around you. That day, Mina and I had enough time to exchange more than words. I started to feel her mood and love about bondage. I knew she was loving it. I knew she was a nice people. But I didn’t catch our thoughts were so close. Probably because Mina was living in South France and she wasn’t there every week-end like some others girls. When she moved to Paris, later, we got the chance to share and build a lot of memories but that’s another story !

nice day to be bound on the sofa !

2006, July 01 : instead of sharing another picture from a well-know series, I decided to feature the second set of this afternoon with Miss Lea. Like a lot of old sessions, there was no blog post about the bondage session requested by the gothic girl. She wanted to wear her new waist corset for being hogtied on my sofa … of course, I have been happy to follow the idea using some natural ropes. As you can see, Lea got a nice feeling with her elbows tight in the back :) There was no escape after the arms have been tied to her wrists. I remember those shots from the upper view were interesting to capture. I enjoyed the contrast of her pale skin on the brown leather. We didn’t take hundreds of pics as usual but there were enough images to build a small photo series. We spent a lot of time on the previous set and my model was a little bit tired. It happens when you’re under spotlights for several hours … even more when the heat is on. Summer is always complicated for shooting even if you got the chance to play with a lovely submissive just before to be bound. For the little story, we did it after Lea dominated Anais. If you need a reminder, you can check the related links below … long afternoon but a lot of nice memories ! I hope you’ll like it.
