All posts for the month August, 2010

YAY!!! After a shit ton of planning and thought, Stacie Snow’s website went
LIVE today!!!

So…let’s allow ol’ Tolstoy to breathe a bit (lol) and talk about this bold

What IS this site? Well, kind of a long story (and would I be “Tolstoy” if it
weren’t?)…StacieSnowBound is just a secondary place to house all of my Stacie
Snow work. I hear it all the time, so feel free to say it…I work with Stacie
a LOT. Why? She’s good, she can readily do the kind of work I want, and for a
while there, she was about all I had available. That has since changed as more
models return…like Sasha, CJ and more other traveling models like Cali Logan
stop by for visits. Kimberly Marvel and I are set for October, by the way. 😉

Check out the “new” logo…kinda cool, no? Stacie Snow from the newly minted “”

Besides…fan response was riding high…I get a lot of orders at Clips4Sale of
just her vids with me. I knew I had a hot seller in Stacie, so I kept hiring
her. In my opinion, I’d be a fool not to, what with the popularity she had with
me. I was still working with other models as well…I was just focusing on
Stacie…2 hours at a time…lol. That’s generally how long my shoots run…so
in one of them, I could generate a BIT of material…but hardly enough to stay
ahead of demand, hence the hiring her back multiple times.

It started to show as the front page of TucsonTied started crowding with Stacie
stuff. It does that occasionally…heck, I can remember a time when half of the
updates page was Kimberly Marvel…and just recently, a full 1/4 of it was
Candle Boxxx. But, Stacie’s stuff was starting to hold out longer…I even had
a complaint at my blog that there was too much Stacie stuff loaded up at

What to do? Create a site JUST for Stacie, that’s what!

My webmaster liked it, I liked it…we went for it. A site focusing on
Stacie…a site dedicated to the housing of my work of her there, which also
allows TucsonTied a bit of room for other models as well.

The demand is there…so why the heck not? She’s a very popular and in-demand
model…we went for it! So, from here on out, my Stacie and Izzie Snow
stuff will be headed straight to StacieSnowBound, while the rest of my work will
go to TucsonTied. Everybody’s happy!

Here’s the kicker…when you sign up at TucsonTied, you get BOTH of the websites
AT THE SAME TIME!! Two kick ass sites, the same rigging and photography that
you all love, all for one price!

I’m excited!!


I sold my soul to Satan.  Or so I’m told.  😉

And yes, dear reader, Peter Parker, AKA Spider-Man, also sold a piece of himself to the Devil…I kid you not.  It’s the reason this long-time Spidey fan dumped comics…that and I thought my money was better spent on my business (models)…lol.  “A New Day”, or something like that…the title of the thing escapes me at the moment.

So what about my deal with Mr. Scratch, Mephisto, Satan, etc?  Before we start, let me just say that I want to post about this, but it’s kinda sensative, so no names will be mentioned…except, mine, natch.  😉   There has to be a start to the thing, right?  A time or place where all this madness happened…

Twitter.  The Devil’s playground.  😉

My Twitter feed, by the way…   One of my models and I are pretty big on Twitter…we converse, yak, and have fun there a lot with each other and other Twitterers.  It’s a good way to pass time when you should be working (lol)…I don’t know about her, but I have a blast on my feed.  Well, said blast got noticed by someone who’s rep…well, let’s just say, “less than untarnished” and leave it at that, k?   A fellow producer…and he turned out to be a hoot.  The three of us started ripping up Twitter together.  Well, one day into the “Twitterfriendship”, he asks me about a “Guest Gallery” of my work of said model at his site.  K…interesting.

Firstly, what IS a “Guest Gallery”?  Basically, a set of my work, published on his site, with a link leading back to my site…kinda like a “Guest Starring” role on a tv show.  His site gets good traffic…gives her a new audience, gives me a new audience, gives him some subscriptions, gives me some “token” sales…it seemed like a “win” all around.  That could’ve been the end of it right there and I could’ve just green-lighted the thing, but I never move on something like this without checking all bases…I ran the idea by the model as well.  She approved, loving the idea, as it could also attract her more business as well (other photographers view his site…).  Her first response to the idea was about ME, ironically enough…she asked if I would be credited.  Not even thinking of herself, but of ME.  I kinda like that.  😉  I even offered her the ability to sit with me as I chose the images…but she was involved in other projects, and told me she trusted me to pick the best of the best we’ve done.  Wasn’t easy, let me tell you…we’ve done some GREAT stuff.

Let’s be clear on one point: it was close to FetishCon, and it was also a thought in both our producer minds that maybe it could generate her some more photography offers for the convention.  IT WAS A BUSINESS DECISION.  You could almost call it a “publicity stunt”.

I send him the images…he puts them up on his site, advertising the coming of the model and my Guest Gallery to his site, on Twitter.  The shit hits the “Twitterfan” almost immeadiatly…as a Twitter member on my feed blasts me for selling my soul to Satan (his words), and that his respect for me is now gone.  Yes, he used no names (as I myself have not), but it was more than obvious who he was talking about.  I wasn’t the only one who noticed…the model did as well.  I’ll avoid the worst of the ugliness, and just say that he and I got into a small fight on Twitter, with, admittedly, me doing most of the fighting…lol.   My temper got the worst of me and after months of intermittent innuendo attacks (which I didn’t respond to as I felt it would be of no gain), it all exploded.  This one was the straw that broke the camel’s back…I’d had ENOUGH.  We went back to our own corners of Twitter, and haven’t spoken since.

That was almost a month ago.  So, why bring it up now?  Two other producers have asked me to do “Guest Gallery” exchanges for their sites.  Am I selling my soul again?  😉

Here’s the thing that has me bugged.   This was such a vile and personal attack that I now find myself double thinking business decisions for my site just so I don’t offend one or two people with apparant axes to grind.  WTF is that?!  I need to be diverse in my thinking to reach all audiences…ALL of them.  Personal wars and squabbles don’t and shouldn’t play a role in BUSINESS decisions at ALL.  And this one must’ve worked…I barely saw the model all ‘con…lol.  I run my business and nobody else…ME.  And the way I run it is proper…otherwise I couldn’t look myself in the mirror in the morning.

By the by…was just driving this morning and looked down at the odometer…84666.  Should I be scared???  😉



FetishCon was a BLAST!!!  Just seeing old friends, hanging out (tho I didn’t do NEARLY enough of that) and just enjoying myself was so, SO much fun!!!  Can’t wait for next year already!But…it’s time to get back to business…already, even!  I’m home less than a week and I have a shoot already (lol), but more on that in a sec.  Firstly, I put up a FetCon pic for the new Group image…Isobel Wren.

Isobel Wren in some TIGHT TucsonTied Bondage

Messaged her about a month before ‘con, expecting her to say, sorry, all booked up, but miraculously, she had availability!!  Of COURSE I took two hours of her time up…in some lingerie stuff and the “little black dress” pic you’ll see at the group.  Be proud of me…I left the pink rope at home.  😀  Also shot with Stacie and Izzie Snow…a sample of that work can be seen at Stacie’s group: Had a GREAT time…can’t wait to shoot with Izzie again, tho Stacie will be seeing me again soon….

But, to tomorrow.  Sasha (no last name…Tucson local) returns to get TucsonTied after about a year and a half layoff…but she (and Dave Annis) tell me that literally no time has gone by for her and she looks exactly the same as when I shot her last.  The only difference will be that now I have money too (lol) and can start bringing her back for more shoots!  Color me excited…Sasha is one of those rare gals that can get her elbows together behind her back without ANY ASSISTANCE AT ALL from me.  CRAZED, right?  Plus, she knows her way around tough, tight bondage (she ought to…Dave Annis introduced her to bondage…lol), so I plan to see where she’s at bondage-wise and have a fabulous shoot!!!  Here’s a bit of Sasha’s last appearance…

What a hogtie! Sasha Fae

For August…I’ll have the extreme pleasure of working with the uber-lovely Cali Logan!!  Cali tells me she’s a bit of a toughie who can easily do elbows together bondage…I plan on testing that theory.  😀  Gonna be a complete BLAST!!!

No definite plans as of yet, but towards the end of September, the loooooovely Tracy Jordan will be stopping by to get TucsonTied as well.  And I didn’t even mention the return of CJ Molina, who just shot with Dave Annis, and I’ve seen the results…OMG, is this lovely Latina SMOKING HOT!!!  I’ll be working with her soon enough…jeez, I need to frikkin’ put on some sunglasses, the future’s so bright around here!!!  Stick around…
