Behind the Scenes of Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Bondage for Couples

By Tristan Taormino:

As a follow up to Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Kinky Sex for Couples, I directed Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Bondage for Couples, which stars Skin Diamond, Derrick Pierce, Adrianna Luna, James Deen, Samantha Ryan, Michael Vegas, India Summer and Danny Wylde. It was also lots of fun to make, and I want to share some stories from the set.

The first scene features Samantha Ryan and Michael Vegas, two performers I’ve never worked with before who’ve been on my wish list. Their scene together kicks off the film with some of the simplest do-it-yourself bondage, including a neck tie (yes, we used the Grey Tie , the one from Fifty Shades of Grey Collection  and a pair of silk stockings. Samantha and Michael also used one of my favorite accessories: bondage tape, which is incredibly versatile. The pair has wonderful chemistry, and the sex and bondage is playful and romantic. They are well matched because they both enjoy passionate sex that unfolds spontaneously. Michael is a total lover — warm, sweet, and funny. I really liked both of them and cannot wait to work with them again.

The second scene features Adrianna Luna and James Deen. Adrianna Luna is a rising star in the world of adult, and it’s easy to see why. Don’t let her tiny frame and voice fool you – she’s a sexual dynamo. James Deen has been getting so much mainstream press lately that it was probably a miracle he was even available to shoot for me, but I am so glad he was. Because the bedroom where we were shooting was so small, I was crammed with the monitors in a bathroom. This is one of those scenes where everything just fell into place: James brought his A game, Adrianna was 100% into it, and my camera guys were really on, capturing every moment beautifully. The three of us talked about what toys they would use in the scene, but then I left it up to them to set the pace, incorporate the various toys, and basically do what they wanted. James began by using Sportsheets Under the Bed Restraint System to put Adrianna in a spread eagle position on the bed, then he went down on her until she came like crazy. Then, he put her in these cuffs with tethers attached to them from Sportsheets Sexy Slave Kit and actually tied a Natural Contours Superbe Vibrator to her hand, then to her body, making it impossible for her not to come. When James Deen tortures you, apparently you get lots of orgasms out of the deal. I wanted to incorporate the Sex & Mischief Sex Sling into the scene, which is essentially a thick strap with loops for your feet. I wasn’t quite sure how it would look or if it would add anything to the sex, but James got creative and put her in this cool position, where he twisted her body and tied the tethers to the sling itself. He just kept making things up as he went along, keeping us all guessing about what he’d do next. When it was all over, I flew out of the bathroom shouting giddy compliments at everyone!

Guide to Bondage for Couples

It’s no secret that Derrick Pierce is one of my favorite performers, and he did a great scene with Asa Akira in Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Kinky Sex for Couples. In this film, he’s paired with Skin Diamond and the two of them really go to town on each other. I’ve wanted to direct Skin Diamond from the moment I laid eyes on her. She is so stunning, plus she’s smart, funny, and actually showed up EARLY to the set. Unheard of in porn land, but definitely a way to score points with me! She and Derrick have done many scenes together before, so they have this dom/sub dynamic that they slipped quite easily into. He began the scene by blindfolding  Skin and tying her to the bed. He immediately started lots of verbal domination, something he’s so good at, setting the tone for the role play. Then he slipped a candy ball gag  into her mouth, which made her drool sticky saliva all over her face. She said it didn’t taste that bad when she first had it in, but after awhile I am sure she was dying to get rid of it! Then he started teasing her, where he put a vibrator on her pussy just out of reach of where she really wanted it. They also used the Deluxe Fantasy Door Swing that doesn’t require any special hardware, it just goes over the door. They really rocked the swing and had lots of fun.

I always look forward to working with India Summer, since she has one of the best attitudes in porn; she truly loves sex and her job. She was paired with Danny Wylde. The scene begins in a doorway, where Danny has tied up India with Door Jam Cuffs and has his head buried between her legs. After a hot orgasm, India turns the tables, and puts Danny in the very same bondage he put her in. She returns the favor with a sloppy blow job. Throughout the scene, the dominant/submissive roles are fluid and shift. On the couch in the living room, they used purple silky scarves and took turns tying each other up. At one point, we took a break to replace a camera battery and India was on top grinding into Danny. Just before the cameras started rolling again, Danny turned to her and said, “Can you do more of that?” These are the moments I just love (and wish I could capture on camera, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t, it’s the nature of porn). It was genuine and sexy as hell to see Danny turned on and asking for more. Their scene culminates in the Fetish Fantasy Spinning Swing which was suspended from a steel bondage frame. This is a pretty elaborate swing that hangs from a single suspension point with a bungee cord that gives it lots of bounce. It took a little time for India and Danny to get the hang of it, but they had a lot of fun having her suspended in mid air. I hope you enjoy this and all the scenes in the movie!
