Totally Spies Was Totally Kinky


This is an unusual bit of bondage gear in use. A collar is connected to a metal stock by a rod that passes between the wearer's legs. The stock passes under the wearer's knees, with cuffs that go outside the elbows. Renders the wearer very helpless indeed! Image source: Atelier Eisen site.

The bondage gear above isn't just unique, it's rare. I found a post related to it on the Bondage Blog site this weekend and it brought back some memories. The Bondage Blog post has a great John Willie drawing of the gear in use on an attractive lass.

A poster named Collarsmith pointed out that he had only seen gear like the one in the Willie drawing in one place: the Atelier Eisen website that is cited above.

I initially encountered the imagery in an episode of a kid's cartoon show called "Totally Spies" about the adventures of three beautiful young female spies who fight supervillains. I had looked around for art like that several years ago, in spring of 2002, and found the exact same image Collarsmith did. I used it in an article about that weird bondage scene on Totally Spies. Here's the Bondage Banter post from the Bondage Banter section of my old site Jollyroper.com circa 2002 courtesy of the Internet wayback machine.

Unfortunately, the key photo that really seals the deal on the Totally Spies imagery in that post has vanished into the aether. But no matter, it turns out that thanks to Youtube the entire episode that features the bondage can now be viewed. You're welcome.


Check this out: the Totally Spies girls in exactly the same bondage, in exactly the same position as the model at the top of the page. It's like the artist used it for a template. I think he may have done just that.

So I made some vidcaps from the Youtube video. Some of the vidcaps I made are not nearly so convincing as the one above, mainly because the episode suffers from major continuity issues. Sometimes the spies wear collars, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they have a rod running from the collar to the stocks, sometimes they don't. I don't think the continuity errors mean anything, they're pretty common in cartoons.


Here's an image that occurs just seconds before the one above it. As you can see, no collar, no rod. Why? No idea!

Totally Spies catered so assiduously to it's kinky fans that there's a wiki page about what a fine source of fetish fuel it is. Most of the speculation is based on the sheer volume and variety of fetishy scenes, costumes and situations that the series presented.

But here I think we have something approaching evidence that the fetish fuel was deliberately injected into the show (not that it's NEEDED, necessarily). Because this particular form of bondage gear happens to be so freaking rare. I think the artist probably copied it from what they assumed was an obscure bondage site. Of course, the artist might claim that he independently came up with this unique form of bondage ... but I think that's kind of revealing as well. So, in conclusion:

Gotcha!
