Metalbond A to Z: the letter X

I was stuck for a while on what to do with the letter X, until I realized it was staring me right in the face — The St. Andrews Cross!

Do you guys know how the St. Andrews Cross got its name? As it turns out, there really was a Saint Andrew, and when he was sent to be crucified (before electric chairs and lethal injections were invented) he requested the X-shaped cross. Because he felt he was not worthy to be crucified on a cross-shaped cross like Jesus. That’s apparently what he said. I learned this from the nuns when I was in Catholic school. Another explanation is that he was a kinky fucker. If he were alive today perhaps Saint Andrew would be starring in gay bondage porn, like the guys below:

Images above are from Titan, Str8Hell, Men On Edge, Bound Gods, Roped Studs and various other sites. The painting is “Crucifixion of St. Andrew,” by the 16th century Spanish painter Juan Correa de Vivar.

Metalbond A to Z: Vintage male bondage

For the letter V, let’s go with VINTAGE male bondage. It’s hard to believe anything ever happened before the internet, and before Tumblr, but back in the day there was LOTS of hot male bondage out there, in print and on video and even in the movies.

 

Some of those pictured above include: Rob Cryston, a famous photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe, Kristofer Weston (when he was Steve Landess), the work of Larry Townsend, the work of James Bond, an image from the Mr S catalog, artwork by Cavelo, and much more.

Many of the images above are from the Vintage male bondage site.

Metalbond A to Z: Metalbond Q&A

At long last, the Metalbond A to Z postings continue with the letter Q. It took me a while to think of something for this letter, and then I realized the answer was staring me right in the face! The Metalbond Q&A section, of course. Every once in a while I get to interview a key gay bondage personality:
