First Time Tied 4-5 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 continues with Bridget's Story, opens not with the aforementioned Bridget, but with Anne, personal assistant and sexual submissive to Quinton, a wealthy playboy. I loved the little details of their scene, such as her sleeping at the foot of his bed and wearing a custom collar (which is her most prized possession), and the way she so happily answers the door in a shiny PVC maid's outfit sealed the deal. I want to be Anne!

As for Bridget, she came to the estate as a young woman offended by Quinton's digital empire, accusing him of cruelty towards women, but after enjoying an all-access pass to the websites her curiosity is piqued and she comes back wanting to experience it all. As in the first three books, Shadoman does a lovely job of having Bridget informed of everything, capturing her excitement and her consent, with most of the experience revolving around confinement, bondage, and stimulation, with very little of the pain or punishment readers might expect.

I leave it to you to discover and enjoy, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention two details - the look of shock on Bridget's face as she's fitted with her first ball gag may be my favorite thing Shadoman has ever rendered, and the single panel of Anne's fetish isolation after crossing a line with Bridget is one of the sexiest things I have ever seen!

And that brings us to the latest instalment in the First Time Tied series, Teigan's Story, which takes a different approach, a sort of slow-burn introduction that initially doesn't seem to have anything kinky to it. Teigan begs for an intern position with professor, a wealthy man with a private jet and a luxurious island home. Where it begins to become interesting is when she reviews another student's dissertation about a BDSM power exchange, questioning whether it's appropriate subject matter, and the professor tasks her with researching the lifestyle.

Smartly, Teigan is still questioning after watching some videos, wondering how much is acting and how much is authentic, and that is when the professor suggests they begin exploring together, beginning with simple bondage and sensory deprivation. I loved how they paused after each scene to discuss, and how her curiosity grows, but is tempered by her own discomfort and anxiety, causing her to lash out at the professor. It makes for very realistic story (kudos to Shadoman for putting that anxiety on the page), and the gradual connection between the two on a personal level is just wonderful.

As for favorite costumes in this one, the traditional black laced armbinder was sexy, but it was the red corseted armbinder with the collar restraints that sent me shopping for one of my own!

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.
