I know, I have been absent. Life has been difficult for me. lots of life changes, and when I tried to have others run the site, they bailed on me. So now I am back to maintaining, and cleaning things up. I had to delete a bunch of spam, and I am trying to clean up any bad stuff on the site. I had to go cli on it all, change the usernames and passwords etc. Even I was locked out.
If anyone is interested in taking over the site, It has, or at least had an adult financial processor. I can check on it if you are interested.
Although I have been posting over at Bondage-Toy.com on a more personal nature.
It is getting very discouraging to run a BDSM website. I found complete siterips of my website online and other sites posting usernames and passwords to my website.
It costs money and time to make videos and take pictures.
If people keep stealing the content and giving it away for free, I will not be able to produce more content.
And then there will be nothing.
It takes thousands of dollars in equipment, it takes paying models and performers. It takes coming up with the ideas.
This website does not even break even anymore. there was a time when it broke even for me. It never did really “Make Money”. Those days are long gone. It is primarily because of the theft that seems so rampant anymore of other people’s intellectual property.
It comes down to if you want me to keep making and uploading new content, I need to cover at least the costs of hiring models. This costs approximately $100.00 per hour for the model fees alone. On top of that, I have to provide costumes and gear. A latex catsuit is approximately $350.00. A simple dress is about 125-150.
Add to the people stealing the content, is the people finding it funny to hack into the website and being destructive. I am a one person run website. I do all of the content, editing, writing the webpages. I do use wordpress now, to make it easier for writing the posts. THis enables me to give you more previews etc. If I have to go back to writing it in html or php, the outside will have a lot less “previews” of what is inside the Member’s Section.
As it is, there is a lot more inside, than the outside updates show.
So I had a user sign up for my member section and then post the username and password to a bunch of websites. if you want to know some of the websites I found please message me at http://www.rubberbound.com/?page_id=25 and I will let you know where they are.
As to the passwords I found there for my site, I changed them, so if your password does not work, please contact me.
We have different sorts of content here, public fetish, latex, bondage, femdom, femsub…
We have picture sets and we have videos.
My first question is what content type do you all like the most?
The reason I ask this is in the past people told me they prefer “Women in Latex” and while that seems to be the most viewed on the free section of the website, what is most viewed in the member section of the website is the Female Domination and Strapon content.
My Second question is what video format do you prefer?
See This Post for a comparison.
The reason I am asking is in the past people said they like the .mp4 (H.264) format the best, but that format does not seem to work for me in chrome, it works great in internet explorer though.
I initially uploaded videos in the .wmv format. since I primarily use windows based systems, the videos work great. But I am not sure that they will play on the evil empire’s “i” equipment. so the most recent uploads have been in the .mp4 format which is h.264
They play fine off of my hard drive, but when I try streaming them from the website they seem jumpy and start and stop.
below are samples. let me know which format you prefer and I will use that going forward.
