Holly is quite a beautiful woman who responds beautifully to bondage and looks wonderful gagged. Overall, the bondage was quite good and fit Holly's body and personality. I do have, however, two issues. While the overall photography was quite good, too many of the photos appear to have been poorly framed, cutting off the top of Holly's head and similar photographic problems. Also, and this is a continuing issue for me, and I suspect, others, Sgt. Major is in the photos far too much. Yes, I know this is subjective. How much is too much? I have no quarrel with a rigger being in some of the photos. If one is going to give a model an orgasm, adjust a bondage, etc. it's acceptable and necessary, but when a rigger is in the photos as much or more than the model? In this set, Sgt. Major is in 63% of the photos in whole or in part, and many of those he is not in are likely that way only because they are tight closeups of various parts of Holly's body. Let's allow the subscribers to see the models moaning, writhing, and acting as well as they are able without the rigger all too often looming over them.

Matt, excellent work yet again. There has been one Hogtied image that has remained with me for years: Faith bound kneeling. Your ressurection of that image here was wonderful and classic. Few models so embody the beauty and grace of bondage as Faith, kneeling, tightly bound, her elbows touching, gagged with her slender neck encircled by rope. She's utterly feminine, helpless and sensual. Well done indeed, and welcome back!

Having watched Dana's bondage modeling career since her first Hogtied appearence, it's good to see her mature and grow into her work. She's a lovely, bright, and utterly feminine model. She looks great in bangs, great in gags, and she has such graceful feet. Matt continues to make textbook shoots, paradigms for all other bondage work. Dana was wonderful in this shoot, and I particularly enjoyed the gentle, feminine bouncing of her breasts as she was led into her suspension scene. Hogtied does best when models are put in stringent bondage and left to struggle and suffer without riggers rattling on and on or intruding on their beauty and feminine grace. Well done both!

Darling is, as always, stunningly lovely, feminine and helpless. In addition, Matt applies very good bondage that accents her physical characteristics and to which she responds beautifully. And best of all, he stays mostly out of the photos, allowing us to enjoy her. Every other Hogtied rigger could learn a great deal from this set.

On a site with models who are commonly beautiful, Bobbi stands out. Unfortunately, the bondage in the final two sets was a bit common. However, you may have discovered something interesting here: female pubic hair! It really does make a woman look more womanly. More, please?

She's a lovely woman; it's a shame she won't be back. Overall, good bondage. But Sgt. Major is in the photographs far to much. While the first four sets are quite as infiltrated as I've often seen, in the last group of photos (I'm not counting the last five or so of the model alone), Sgt. Major appears, in whole or in part, in 77% of the photos. And most of those in which he doesn't appear it appears to be so only because they're tight closeups of various body parts. Sorry, but that's far too much time spent on the rigger, and not nearly enough on the model, especially one as lithe and lovely as this.

Stormie is indeed a lovely woman. Her appearance a few years back was quite good, as is her work here. Sgt. Major, this is one of your best shoots in terms of bondage style and variety, much better than most I've seen you do, and I see that you finally closed the door in the background toward the end of the set. It does draw the eye away from the model. But if I may sound like a broken record, you're in the photos far too much. I did a quick count: Of the 192 photos in this set, you appeared in whole or in part, in 118, which is 61% of the photos. Of the 74 in which you weren't visible, that was so because most were tight closeups. There are other site in the Kink family that I will no longer visit because the riggers involved just can't stay out of the photos. How about helping out here and letting us see more of the model? I'm not suggesting that a rigger should never be in a photo, Matt, for example, does it in good proportion. But 61%?

Maximum score for Seven, medium to medium low for Sgt. Major. This set is superior to most of Sgt, Major's efforts, particularly in terms of the quality and variety of bondage and the use of specific bondage to accent the model's temprement and physical characteristics, But it falls down, as usual, in that Sg.t Major just can't seem to keep himself out of the photos. This set is a bit better than usual with that as well, but still, when we have a model as expressive, bright and beautiful as Seven, we'd like to see more of her and less of the rigger--any rigger. Much could be learned from Matt here.

Belin is a lovely and graceful model. Steve Martin said that breasts make men stupid. Berlin's are certainly unusually beautiful, but she also looks wonderful gagged, and has lovely feet and hands, Perhaps you can concentrate a bit more on them next time, It's always a pleasure to see a responsive, smart woman in bondage.

She's a lovely, strong woman. Beautiful feet, and she looks wonderful in gags. If she returns, do try to keep her gagged more consistently. Not as stringent as your best work, but for a first time model, impressive. It's good to see a fellow Texan do so well!

Note: Amber is, as always, beautiful. Few models wear a gag as attractively as does she, and unlike all but a handful of models, Amber is physically superb everywhere. Not every model looks wonderful nude, but Amber does. Her reactions to bondage, and particularly to orgasm, make her rare and precious. Unfortunately, whenever I see a shoot by Sgtmajor, I know I'm going to be disappointed, and this one was no exception. the bondage, particularly in the first three sets was substandard, though the last two were more up to Hogtie's usual standards. And as all sets with Sgtmajor, the shoot was all about him, with only the occasional shot of Amber without him in the frame. Considering that he apparently said that such shoots should be about the model rather than him, I have to suspect that someone other than him wrote the post as in his shoots, he is virtually always in each frame in one way or the other, most often looming over the model. One of the things I, and I suspect a great many others appreciate about this site is that the models are enthusiastic, usually nude, and usually, the bondage chosen accents each model's unique abilities and physical characteristics. That was only partially true here, which, considering the stunning looks, physicality, and sensuality of Amber, is a shame.

After having seen the entire set, I'm disappointed. Kylie's first shoot was an order of magnitude better. Suggestions? Close the door. The light streaming in is distracting and pulls the eye from Kylie, it also detracts from the mood of the dungeon like atmosphere. Take an additional second or two to make sure the camera is in focus (too many photos are a bit blurry) and that the photo won't be overexposed. If you're not shooting from a tripod, start, please. Finally, and I hate to belabour the point, but with great bondage, as in her first shoot, and with minimal rigger interference, as in her first shoot (particularly in the photos), your work is much, much better.

Rather a shame thus far in the fir st two sets. Unimaginative bondage, though Kylie does look great in a very large ballgag. My suggestion? Keep the rigger out of the preponderance of the photos. That's a problem you folks had in abundance in the past, but have mostly overcome. This model can certainly hold the viewer's interest without the rigger being in far too many shots.
