First Time Tied 1-3 by Shadoman (Comics BDSM)

Something a little different for all you fellow lovers of illustrated delights, the first part of a BDSM-themed comic series by Shadoman from his Renderotica files!

The First Time Tied series opens with Carla's Story, in which a woman's discovery of a bondage comic at her lover’s house prompts a weekend of consensual bondage sex. She is angry, at first, but his rational explanation of the appeal of fetish sparks her curiosity enough to discuss the situation with a friend - one who has a bondage tale of her own to share. The storyline is well done, with conversation, discussion of limits, and the use of safewords, but also extraordinarily erotic with beautiful depictions of bondage and domination. Of all that Carla experiences, I do believe it's the orgasm endurance that excited me the most, and the romantic closure to her explorations is just beautiful.

Juliet's Story continues the series, which delves a little deeper into the kinkiness of dubious consent, starting with a BDSM interrogation that proves to be nothing more than a screen test, but which awakens something in the young actress. More comfortable with the idea of a woman dominating her, Juliet surrenders herself to training by Mistress Vanessa, with the lesbian element adding a certain sensuality to it all. I loved the introduction of David, the chaste houseboy slave who helps further the discussion of orgasm control and denial, but it's the elaborate, almost sci-fi bondage cross where Juliet spends the night that had me squirming with desire. A different ending to this one, I enjoyed how it connects the two women and leaves the door open for more.

The third First Time Tied story is Bree's Story, which captures a slow, subtle descent from curiosity to excitement. A frustrated writer, Bree accepts a new friend's advice and indulges in some online BDSM reading that prompts some very dark dreams, but which also opens her to safer, saner submission. Shadoman makes things a little more exciting by having Bree learn about the lifestyle through Julian and his submissive, Kelly, which provides her with both a Master and a mentor. I adored the erotic friendship between Bree and Kelly, submissive to submissive, but I appreciated the approach of Julian even more, refusing to overwhelm Bree and instead bringing her slowly into the lifestyle. This is the most realistic of the three stories so far, and that makes it easier to imagine yourself in Bree's place. My favorite scene in this one was when Bree is placed in an armbinder before servicing her Master. So very good!

Shadoman is a CG artist who enjoys telling stories through 3D comic art. Originally from the Mid-west, he now resides in Southern California. He is a Viet-Nam vet in his mid-60’s, married to a wonderful gal who is also his best friend and text editor. A film buff with an extensive library, it was his passion for film as a young teen that was his vehicle to escape and expand his own creative mind and become a storyteller.
