The new buried alive clip is now available on Clips4Sale, and in my UMD store. There is a short teaser clip in both stores for you to look at. I plan on doing a similar clip in the future, because I know I can do much better, but that may not be until May of 2018.
p.s. Sorry for the short post. It’s late, I’m late getting to this, and it’s been a long day. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving holiday, if you’re somewhere where that’s a thing.
I have released the erotic/mud wallowing clip from my November 1 excursion into the swamp. I released it in HD and UHD (4K) formats, for those interested in checking out the super-high-def version.
Clip Description: I had been away from the swamp for too long and this was my chance to just enjoy the feeling of the mud on my body. In this clip, I crawl out onto the mud, wearing sexy black briefs and nothing else. I sink down into the thick mud then lay back and pull my legs out so my muddy feet are visible. I lay back further so I can bring my crotch to the surface. I rub my crotch as my head is engulfed in the black mud. Then I invert himself, return to an upright position, and eventually kick back on the surface of the mud.
You can find this clip on Clips4Sale in 2 versions: Mud Appreciation Day (4K) and Mud Appreciation Day (HD)
The HD clip is also available soon on UMD.net.
single UHD frame from my 4K professional camera
When I shoot with multiple cameras, I’m limited to 1080p (FHD), but when I shoot only with my new camera, I can, and often do, shoot UHD (3840 x 2160) and even full 4K (4096 x 2160). In those cases, I generally downsize the video to 1920 x 1080 (FHD) or 1280 x 720 (HD) for publishing.
I could just upload a UHD version of the clip, when it’s available, but those files are pretty large, so I’m not inclined to upload them if there is no real advantage.
Before you say, “sure, 4K sounds great!”, keep in mind that the 4K clips will probably cost more and they’ll take up about twice as much space on your hard drive. The FHD videos already have a lot of resolution, and I think they look really good. It’s probably safe to say that I will be doing more FHD format videos, and move away from the HD (1280 x 720) frame size.
I tweeted a twitter poll from my @MudBondage twitter account. You can respond there if you don’t have an account here. I’d really like to hear from those of you who support my production efforts.
This is the first of 2 videos from my trip into the swamp on November 1. In this video, I kayak into the swamp, get out of my kayak on a muddy shoreline, walk through some tall grass, hop onto a shelf of mud, and discover that I can’t get free. I proceed to sink, slowly, as I struggle to escape without success. The video ends when I’m up to my shoulders, and I’ve given up all hope of escape.
I’m afraid I had to leave out some of the best banter, because a large segment of the video was out of focus and I couldn’t stand to include all of it. I did include some of it, for continuity. It’s not too out of focus, but I’m a snob when it comes to production details.
Here is the link to the video on Clips4Sale: Stuck! 2017-11-01 … the video will also be in my UMD store by the time you read this.
Today, we shot a clip that I’m going to call “Buried Alive”, because that’s pretty much what it’s about. This past Sunday I dug out the mud-pit I made in the woods. I moved all of the contents onto a plastic sheet, made the pit a few inches deeper, and generally cleaned it up. I installed 2 anchor points, and poured about 6 inches of mud back into the hole.
Today, I was led to the edge of the hole with my wrists and elbows tied, and hooded. I wish I could say I didn’t know what was about to happen, but, of course, it was all choreographed for a video. Of course, nothing goes exactly to plan, so there was still some improvisation. Once I was at the edge of the pit, still hooded, my ankles were tied together. Then my captor removed the hood and pushed me into the pit. I had no way to catch myself, so I made an uncontrolled landing in the sloppy, wet mud.
After that, my captor proceeded to bury me with the mud I had piled up on the plastic next to the pit. My only regret is that I couldn’t just enjoy the experience, as we were shooting a video, and there were too many things on my mind. My helpmate was also a bit shy about throwing mud on my face. I was trying to tell her, telepathically, that she should not hesitate to bury me in copious amounts of heavy mud. I could not, however, say anything without messing up the audio on my video. Eventually, I couldn’t say anything because I would get a mouthful of mud, but that was when it was getting interesting.
It was the nicest day you could ask for this late in the season. I’ve been really anxious to get back out into the swamp, so today I seized the opportunity. The tide got really low, so there was lots of exposed mud, and I spent as much time as I could, enjoying it.
I paddled to my favorite spot with the thickest mud. I wish I had someone with me, recording the behind the scenes action, because the adventure started well before the camera started rolling. I was going to set up a tripod and camera to get a shot of me, paddling in, but when I got out of the boat where I thought the mud was shallow, I sank right up to my waist. That wasn’t the plan.
The first video clip I shot was one in which I got stuck and slowly sank up to my shoulders. The main section of that video is out of focus, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it. The image on the right is from the last scene in that story.
When I finished being stuck … and the struggle was real, too … I stripped down to my black briefs and wallowed for a while. I was going to enjoy what time I had, as long as the sun was warm and the tide was low.
Someday, there will be at least one video from this trip. I’m not sure when I’ll have time to edit and publish a video, but at least I don’t have to wait for perfect weather and a low tide. 🙂
Mt. Tom lookout tower at Sibley State Park in Minnesota
I have returned from my Minnesota vacation. It was a vacation in that I did not work in my office, but it definitely wasn’t restorative. The drive aggravated my back, my diet suffered, and my exercise routine was put on hold. I arrived home a couple days ago and my back is still pretty sore.
I did do some hiking on my trip. I hiked about 5 grueling miles in the North Carolina mountains, a few miles in Sibley State Park in Minnesota, and several other, shorter walks.
Since I’ve been home, I’ve been looking at the tide charts, in hopes of finding a good day to visit my swamp. My spirits are low. I’m feeling isolated and hopeless. I need an adventure; preferably an adventure that doesn’t cause further injury to my spine.
The low tide, tomorrow morning, is pretty early, so I’ll have to get everything ready tonight and make sure I get up early so I don’t miss it. The weather forecast is good, although we got 2 inches (5 cm) of rain on Thursday, which would have raised the level of the creek. It may or may not have had time to go down by Sunday morning.
Anyway, I’m back. I’m stiff and sore, and I’m feeling melancholy. Otherwise, I’m good. It’s time to get this show on the road … metaphorically speaking.
This is the main clip I shot on August 16. Aside from some out-takes, this is probably going to be it, for a while.
In this clip, I go for a short slog and get stuck in the thick mud. The struggle is real and the sink is slow but relentless. I don’t get completely immersed, but I do get hopelessly stuck … hence the name.
There isn’t a lot I can say about this clip. It is sad that I have so few clips to sell, this year, but I really need to be careful until my spine is healed.
Here is a link (clips4sale): Stuck!, 2017-08-16 Now also available in my UMD store.
This is the 2nd clip I shot, yesterday. I decided to post it first, because it is short and easy to set up. The description of this clip is simply, “Doug masturbates himself to orgasm in the swamp” … more or less.
In a nutshell, I reclined in the mud, after doing the first clip, and took matters into my own hands until I came. It seemed like the thing to do, right before I cleaned up and paddled home.
The video is pretty good. You can find it on Clips4Sale, for now. I may upload it to UMD, later. Link: Masturbation in the Swamp, 2017-08-16 Now also available in my UMD store.
Low impact swamping? I am not sure if there is such a thing as swamping without physically exerting one’s self, but I did my best to take it easy. I’m finding that breaking the grip of thick mud is murder.
I took my 43 pound (19.5kg), 12 ft (3.7 m) solo, canoe because it is my lightest boat. Loading and launching the boat, and paddling 2 miles was nearly enough for me. I almost didn’t even get muddy, but I wasn’t sure when I’d get another chance.
So, I found a spot where I could easily get into the mud and I took the plunge. It wasn’t long before my mud-lust kicked in. I think I strained something… I have physical therapy tomorrow… This probably won’t end well.
I took some still photos and shot some video. You can see some of the still photos in this post. I know it’s hard to believe, but they are really me, and they were taken on August 16, 2017. I’ve been working hard to stay in shape while I’m unable to engage in my usual misadventures.
This is an edited clip from my experimental scene where I was slowly buried in the mud pit. Please see the note below the clip. There are more details in my previous blog entry.
Side Note: I’ve been posting a lot of free content, lately, since I haven’t been able to go into the swamp and record very much this year. In the past, I posted everything for free, but I quit when I got frustrated with the lack of feedback. This stuff may be free to you, but it’s not free to me. If you want me to leave this stuff up and continue posting more, please give me some “love”. Also, if you really enjoy a free clip, I suggest you download it and archive it somewhere, because I may take these down to conserve $bandwidth$, at any time.
This idea starts with a man, tied down to anchors in the bottom of a pit. His head is also tied down, so he can’t raise it and he has a short piece of pipe in his mouth so he will be able to breathe, even when the mud overtakes his face.
Which brings us to the mud. As he struggles, the mud, which is stacked higher near his feet, flows, ever-so-slowly, towards his head, engulfing his head and eventually casting him into total darkness.
If everything goes to plan, our victim will be completely engulfed in the slow moving mud, and all we will see of him is the very end of the pipe. In this proof-of-concept clip, things didn’t go perfectly. One of the anchors holding my head down broke free, and I had no anchor to hold my legs down, although they were tied at the ankles and above the knees.
The entire ordeal made me rather horny, and I have been pondering improvements to the setup ever since. I’ll definitely need to improve my anchors, so they don’t break free. Even if I try not to hide the failure, my body will naturally float to the surface. The video I shot while testing this idea didn’t turn out too bad. If anyone wants to see it, let me know, and I’ll try to make it available.
p.s. My physical therapist pretty much cancelled all of my exercises and replaced them with much easier ones. She also replaced all of my stretches with 2 simple stretches that don’t involve any twisting. Since it’s impossible for me to get in and out of the swamp without twisting, if I am going to respect my physical therapist’s expertise, I can’t be going into the swamp for at least a month; probably 2. Today’s activity was not very strenuous, since I have solid ground and the mud isn’t deep enough to force me to twist.
You probably saw the video log from this day. This clip contains what was not in the video log … the actual sinking and having a good time. It was so great to get back into the swamp, and to be able to return to my favorite mud hole on a day with such a low tide.
I did have to get out once because of a threatening storm, and I had to end the video when it started raining, but I still had a great time. The mud was just perfect, and I was really excited to be in it.
There is a 30 second teaser for this clip. You can view it on Clips4Sale or on UMD.net. I think the teaser says more in 30 seconds than I can write in an hour.
Return to the Swamp, 2017-07-06
This was not the smartest thing I’ve ever done …
I haven’t even started on the lift for my kayak trailer, so I still can’t go kayaking. It’s been raining way too much, anyway. I have been making the most of the weekend, and trying not to inflict too much stress on my spine.
I worked a bit on the new mud pit in the woods, and the other day, I stirred the 110 gallon tub of mud. In the images attached to this post, I’m just kicking back in a pool float that got filled with rain water in the recent rain, and warmed by the sun. I was surprised at how warm the water was, given we have had more rain and clouds than sun.
I should also mention that the video associated with these images will be on UMD as a “name your price” video. That means you can get it for free when you’re purchasing any other video from any UMD producer; or you can pay something for it, if you wish.
