This was the final sequence of my final shoot in Los Angeles, with my good
friend Molly. Now Molly's a bit different from other models. Most models
have their kinks and fetishes, but Molly has ALL the kinks and fetishes. You
name it, Molly's into it, and into it with a huge big smile and maybe just a
few nerves. I wanted something special for the finale, and this was what I
came up with. A path of pain. Those are sharp staples she's standing on. I
tried it out myself for safety of course, and it was pretty unpleasant but
didn't break the skin. I happen to know Molly has extremely sensitive feet,
so I thought she might appreciate my little toy.
To warm up, I tied her to the chair and put thumbscrews on her, tightened
just beyond the point where she could take the pain without too many
complaints. I set up the nailed boards on the floor, then dragged her over
to them. I helped her step on, to support her weight so she didn't put too
much weight on a small part of her foot. Then I took a few photos. Then
Molly decided that although it hurt, it didn't hurt as much as it could. She
took a couple of steps forward. You can see from the expression on her face
what she thought of that. The final shot shows that no actual damage was
done, and she recovered quite quickly. But ask me for a bit of pain and you
get what you deserve!
What was Molly like to shoot? A bit odd in some ways, because unlike the
other US models I'd been chatting to Molly on and off for a year or so, and
we'd already met on a previous trip to LA. So I knew what she could do, and
what she personally would like to have done to her. It was quite something
to be able to oblige. It was more like an S&M scene than a photo shoot. You
might think that tying up these beautiful ladies and photographing them is
an arousing experience. You'd be totally wrong. I'm so preoccupied with
f-stops, lighting ratios and whether or not the ties look tidy and are
secure that I just don't have enough spare brain power to think of sex!
Shooting Molly was the one (and so far only) exception to that.
