The Metalbond website — long popular in the gay male bondage/BDSM/leather/fetish community — has been re-designed and re-launched, and it is now available at metalbondnyc.com. The free website features pictures, stories, videos, web links, reader contributions and much more — all dedicated to the physically restrained male.
“When I launched my website three years ago, I never thought it would grow into such a popular destination on the web, but I am pleased that it has become so popular for guys — like me — who get off on real bondage,” says Metal. “Handcuffs, jail cells, cages, leather restraints, and much more — if it can be tied, locked or secured, you will find it at Metalbond.”
In recent months, the popularity of the site grew so much that Metal realized a site re-design was in order.
“I decided to retain the professional web design and hosting services of Great Atlantic Media, a gay-owned and operated company with a proven track record of success hosting many other gay bondage websites — both mainstream and adult-themed,” says Metal. “I am pleased with the results, and I am thrilled to be able to re-launch my site.”
The main section, the “Home” page, is where Metal will continue to update his site, just as he has for the past thee and a half years, with new contents at least twice a day. But now, thanks to Great Atlantic, he is able to share things much better — with bigger, better-quality pictures; clickable image galleries; more abundant and higher-quality videos; and an overall better look and feel.
There is now a convenient search feature, which makes it easy for guys who visit the site to find the specific material that gets their cocks hard — or, straining in their cock cages — as many visitors to the Metalbond site are locked in chastity devices!
Those who enjoy erotic gay male bondage fiction will want to check under the tab for “Prison Library,” where the works of more than 40 authors can be accessed. The most recently added stories are listed under the “Newest Stories” sub-tab in the upper left under Prison Library. There’s a never-published-before story called “Half Masked” by Boots Rule, and another called “10 Days in Detention” by socalbd. There’s also a brand new story by longtime Metalbond contributor Marknorth, titled “Camping Trip.”
Once visitors to the site have had enough Metalbond for one day, they can find other sites to visit under the LINKS tab, where many of Metal’s own favorite sites, and many excellent third-party porn sites and gear and equipment vendors that support Metalbond, are listed.
“In addition to all that, I will be adding even more new features to the site in the coming weeks and months, so be sure to check back often,” says Metal.
Since its launch in March 2009, the Metalbond site has received more than 5.9 million pageviews, more than 2.8 million site visits, and more than 1 million unique site visitors.* Metalbond, aka Metal (known as “Fred” in the real world) is an openly gay leather man living and working for the past 20 years in New York City. Before launching his gay male bondage website, Metal served as a board member for GMSMA (Gay Male S/M Activists) in New York City, and he edited that organization’s award-winning print publication, NewsLink, for five years. He competed twice as a bootblack at the International Mr. Leather (IML) event in Chicago, achieving first-runner-up status in 2008 and 2009. He has attended the Chicago Hellfire Club’s Inferno event, and he is a longtime member of Delta International and the New York Bondage Club. For his “day job,” he works as a full-time journalist in the mainstream media, for both print and digital publications.
