Mega thanks go out to our friend Katie for shooting this set. It's something Ariel and I have wanted to do for ages- shoot a stills
set that shows what a romantic bondage date looks like. I remember our early dates, going to Ariel's flat armed with a rucksack of
rope and a few extra things beside! We wanted to show that it's about more than just rope and nipple clamps, though, it's about
having a connection with your partner and exploring that in play.
I guess if one were an exhibitionist, this sort of thing might come naturally. But I'm DEFINITELY not an exhibitionist, and Ariel's
exhibitionist tendencies are strictly limited to storytelling in front of the camera. So this wasn't the easiest of things to shoot-
one is constantly balancing the desire to make it authentic and personal with the horror of giving too much of ourselves away by
making it too authentic and personal! Golly, this stuff can be complicated!
But with Katie's wonderful help, I'm very proud of these photos... which is why they are up on my birthday. I really hope that if you
are reading this, you either have found someone to share romantic kinky dates with, or that you will do soon. All the best, Hywel.
