A few weeks ago I attended several films at the Sydney Underground Film Festival – from hilarious Yakuza Vampires to serious documentaries there’s always something interesting to see… my favourite however was a German documentary called Prison System 4614. This documents an amazing real life facility set up as a realistic prison where inmates spend days living life wearing orange suits, locked in cells and being transported in heavy chains! I’m sure you can imagine how my interest was captivated 😈
In the world where there’s a niche for every type of proclivity, Arwed caters to a special type of customer: he runs a private prison where he finds all sorts of ways to bully and victimise his paying guests on the other side of the bars. Shot over the course of one week, Prison System 4614 provides a documentary portrait of a self-built place where vacationing men pay big bucks to live out imprisonment and torture-fantasies for real – whether as a warden or a prisoner. Their activities aren’t always entirely sexual, with most participants treating the time they spend in handcuffs and leg irons as a real holiday where they can switch off and relax. Renowned for his controversial BDSM documentaries, Jan Soldat explores this intricate world with the nuance it deserves, humanising the prisoners and exploring the humane side of the wardens who care for those in their charge.
I’ve had a Prison Fetish for some time (as the photo accompanying it shows the cell facility from my old dungeon) – and like finding different ways to incorporate elements into different sessions… Of course my extended and multi-day bondage sessions lend themselves perfectly to this sort of scenario – but it’s interesting how you can add an element in. A recent two hour session with a focus on bondage and strap-on play was perfect for teaching my “prison bitch” his new role in life! Or a change for the pure corporal enthusiast where the magistrate offers a shorter sentence in exchange for a judicial caning…
While my facilities aren’t quite as authentic in every detail as the German fantasy prison in the film, I do have authentic prison uniforms in orange or black and white stripes, handcuffs, heavy manacles for wrists and ankles, transport leg braces and of course my lovely cell where prisoners are locked away overnight. Even shank-free shower kits, a plastic meal-tray with compartments and some day-glo orange towels!
