I love the name Bondage Forte, although it does make me want to say "Rico Suave" right afterward. For those of you not caught in the 1990s, this fine site is no one-hit wonder. It's well produced and it hits the right note for anyone who appreciates bondage done by someone with (get ready for it) a real forte for simple, straightforward material with few bells and whistles, but great creativity.
There are 87 amateur models in 566 sets of high-res photos on BondageForte. The women often start out dressed, but once their clothes start slowly getting peeled away, you can see every precise detail, right down to the goose bumps on their exposed skin. The one thing that did make me wince, though, was the lack of Zip files.
That's right, you see them in everyday clothes and then they're stripped down and gradually bound, which makes for a great build-up of anticipation. You don't really see their clothes being taken off or them being bound, the camera just cuts to a different angle and the model is bound in a different way or an article of clothing has been removed.
The majority of the photo shoots are accompanied by a video, for a total of 444 videos. All the ones I checked out were in Windows Media format and the playback varied, but many come in HD at this point - there's no streaming option, though. It looks like the site updates a couple times a week.
The videos usually last around five minutes and they all have a soundtrack. I recognized some of the songs (they're instrumental versions of what seemed to be '70s soft-rock), but I can't say every song choice went with the scene. That's just one person's opinion, though. In terms of the site's design, it's pretty bad, with lots of wasted black space.
Although I have seen several fine bondage sites, Bondage Forte has a unique appeal. The layouts maintain a certain amateur quality while still being sharp and clear and having a slightly glamorous edge, demonstrating a certain ingenuity in their presentation of amateurs being transformed into bound babes.
