Two Days in a Row

The weather has been dry and the winds calm, so I’ve had several opportunities to catch a pretty decent low tide. Today was no exception. The low tide was near noon, so the sun was pretty harsh. Harsh sun makes for dark shadows, but I stuck with my Lumix for all of the video to get the best range. The only camera I have that can do better than the Lumix is the DVX-200, but that one is a large and heavy professional camera.

But, I digress. Today I set up my camera and dove right in. After that, I jumped in a few times (feet first). It was fun jumping in because I would go completely under to where I could barely reach the surface with my arms outstretched over my head.

I wore the same, blue shorts the entire time I was out. I didn’t really even think about changing clothes. I was mostly enjoying myself and the mud.

Midday Swamping

Today I paddled a few kilometers on the creek to slog around in one of my favorite spots. It was very warm. The mud was very warm. The sun was wicked hot. There were no biting flies. Oh, and the tide got pretty low so I had access to all sorts of mud.

I should add that I’m falling behind on editing and releasing my videos. I didn’t think that could happen, but all of a sudden I’ve been swamped with other priorities. I’m sure I’ll get caught up when the weather changes, again.

PornHub Update

PornHub removed another of my videos. This time it was a video with my anal hook and they removed it for “Bodily Harm”. I’m more than a little annoyed, since the anal hook was custom made for my body and there was nothing dangerous about that scene. I’m not going to contest it like I did last time. I’m finished with PornHub.

I went through my videos and set all of the mud scenes as downloadable, so if you want to keep any of those videos, you should download them in the next week or so. Once PornHub pays me the balance on my account, John Marsh will be deleted.

Addendum: I reread the PornHub terms of service and policies pages. There is only a single bullet that pertains to the reasons my content has been deleted and that reads:

[you may not] post any Content depicting underage sexual activity, non-consensual sexual activity, revenge porn, blackmail, intimidation, snuff, torture, death, violence, incest, racial slurs, or hate speech, (either orally or via the written word);

In conclusion, the first video they deleted as “non-consensual” contained no sexual activity of any kind, whatsoever. It was simply a video of me, tied up in the woods, getting rained on. The second video deleted for “bodily harm” isn’t even referenced in the TOS, unless you consider anal penetration torture or violence, but that’s not what they cited it for and lots of videos would be in violation if anal penetration or cock and ball torture were banned. I really can’t shout this loud enough: I HATE BEING CENSORED!

I always do my best to obey the ToS, but inevitably it is selectively and arbitrarily applied and I can’t help but wonder about the actual reasons.

Damn Flies

I went for a sunset paddle on July 21. I thought it would be fun to visit a mud hole I haven’t been to in a years, take some photos, shoot some video, and also enjoy a nice long, late-day paddle. Unfortunately, the biting flies were too much for me to enjoy my stay in the swamp, so I had to get back in my kayak and make a hasty departure. I did get some still photos and shoot a few minutes of video, but I was slapping flies through most of it. I definitely was not having fun.

New Quickmud Clip

I just released a new clip in my clip store. The Perils of Quickmud, 2020-07-18

In this clip, I strip down to some tiny shorts that don’t cover much, then I step off into some treacherous peat mud. The sucking mud is hungry and bottomless, and I succumb to it’s will after a long, slow sink.

I had to add a bit at the end that shows me, emerging from the mud, to avoid the censors who won’t allow me to depict a death by quicksand scene. Hopefully, my re-emergence will be enough to satisfy them. If that’s going to ruin the mood, just hit stop when the clip fades to black.

Mid-July Swamp Adventure

Well, I ventured into the peat bog, yesterday. I took a real beating, but I think it was worth it. I may change my mind if I can’t get this sliver out of my right middle finger. It is really messing with my ability to use a keyboard.

I put together a day-in-the-life video of yesterday’s misadventure and uploaded it to PornHub for general viewing. I think that video says more about my trip than I can say in words.

For those who don’t watch videos, I had to hack my way to the mud hole because I haven’t been there all year and the grass and shrubs had completely overgrown my trail. I always hate to hack an obvious trail, so I don’t just lead someone to my secret mud holes, but if I can only go there a couple times a year, I don’t think I have to worry about running into anyone, even if they’re watching for me.

Once I got to the mud hole, I did a pretty convincing quicksand scene. The peat bog makes that pretty easy, since the mud is less dense and it’s easier to go under. After that, I dove back in, head first and wallowed a while, after which I experimented with some bondage off camera. I changed my wardrobe, turned on the GoPro and recorded a brief bondage scene; mostly for reference, since I think I want to try that again with a better camera setup.

The stuff I just described actually lasted a lot longer than it sounds. I took my time and enjoyed the mud, since I don’t get to spend much time in it these days. Finally, I returned to the creek to clean up. The sun was low in the sky, the water was warm, and I was all alone, so I took my time there also. I even shot some cleanup video on the GoPro.

New Clip: A Swampy Romp

Shot on 2020-07-03, this clip features my most recent swamp adventure. My previous post has more details about this trip. The clip opens while I am still wearing a OD green bikini. I just arrived in my kayak and I’m getting set up for my erotic deep mud predicament.

In order to get the rope that is going to hold me under threaded through the submerged steel ring, I must dive head first and deep into the mud to reach the ring. After that, I use the submerged anchor point to force myself deeper and hold my body down while I struggle and inadvertently tug at my genitals, which is mostly just a tease.

Towards the end of the clip, I am lying on the surface of the mud, playing with my cock, tugging on the rope that is still keeping me in the mud pit, and using my legs to force my head under the mud.

I named the clip “A Swampy Romp” because I’m mostly just having fun and enjoying the warm mud, since I get precious few opportunities these days.

A Swampy Romp – July 3, 2020

Swamp Blues and Trip News

The good news is that I caught a rare low tide on July 3, 2020 and I managed to get very muddy. I might have some other good news, but lets first talk about my trip on July 3.

It was a hot day, a few days before the full moon. That is usually when I have my best chance of catching an unusually low tide. These days, the “normal” low tides are not very low, so I need an unusually low tide to have what would have been considered a normal low tide a few years back.

I was thinking of going into the peat bog in the woods, but I decided instead to visit another spot where I could enjoy some forced submersion; the spot where I have driven a board deep into the mud with a steel ring in it through which I have passed a rope for pulling myself under.

Upon arrival, I set up my cameras and changed into my thong with the built in cock ring and opening for my cock and balls. I took my breathing hose so I could spend some time under the mud. It’s a good thing, because I had to dive head-first to get a knot to pass through the submerged ring. That ring is pretty deep down.

I got to spend some time, sinking under and playing with myself, before the tide came back in. I recorded most of my wallow on video. It was a very warm day, so I had no trouble staying warm. It was a good time and I got cleaned up and returned to my car without seeing another person.

The other good news I referenced in the first paragraph is that the swamp appears to be rising with the rising sea level. I can’t say for sure, but I know the lowest tide level on July 3 was about -0.8 where a typical low tide is closer to -1. One of the spots where I only go when the tide is really low, because otherwise it will have water over it, was exposed when I checked it. That could mean that the floating bog is rising or that sediments are building up higher, due to higher mean water levels. It could also be that my observations are not terribly scientific and I’m just seeing what I want to see. However, a mud lover can hope.

This Could be the End of Another Experiment

Update: PornHub has re-instated the video and apparently they are auditing a lot of content that they had taken down, so there is hope.

Update 2: PornHub removed my recent anal-hook video for “Bodily Harm”, even though I was not harmed at all and it was really quite safe. I’m done with PornHub. I edited all of my mud-videos on PornHub and set them so you may download any of them you want to keep and I’m going to take down my PH channel as soon as I get a payout from them (August?)

I will probably remove this blog entry, once everyone has had a chance to see the updates.

Well, I’m not sure yet how this will turn out, but here’s a heads-up. Recently, I posted the “Bound in the Rain” video on PornHub for free viewing. It got 6 views before someone reported it as “non-consensual sexual activity”, which makes no sense at all.

First, there was no sexual activity in the clip, whatsoever. Most of my bondage clips involve some sort of genital bondage, which I would deem as sexual, but that clip doesn’t even have that. The entire theme of the clip was just to be bound in the woods, in the rain. I wasn’t even gagged, which the reviewer claimed.

The video in question shows a model being bound and gagged. This type of content must show clear consent. Consent must be clearly established in the video.

The problem with this is much larger than this one silly clip. The “Bound in the Rain” clip was probably the most non-sexual, safe clip I’ve posted on PornHub, with the possible exception of the “Making a Mud Movie” movie. If they can reject a bondage clip with no sexual content and no gag which would probably get a PG rating in a mainstream movie, most of my content is going to be subject to rejection if anyone reports it.

So, depending on the resolution of this ruling, and how things progress from here, this may be the end of my PornHub experiment. Needless to say, I’m still maintaining my clip store. That is because I still get some sales and I can use every dollar I can make while my regular business is mostly shut down. I’m living on my savings account, these days. I can’t turn my back on any revenue source. In case you’re wondering, I get about $2 a month from PornHub views and I still haven’t seen any of that money. It’s not going to be a difficult financial decision to close down my PornHub channel if it becomes a source of too much angst.

Regarding the angst, when my videos are targeted for no apparent reason, I can’t help but feel the rules are not being applied consistently. In this age of black lives matter, I hesitate to say that I’m being persecuted, but I am pretty sure I could find 100 videos with women bound and gagged, apparently against their will, that actually contain sexual activity and that would never be rejected by PornHub. Just the fact that they picked my most recent video to reject, even though I have much better examples of non-consensual sexual activity in my catalog leads me to believe that someone who has never watched my other videos flagged that video and the reviewer didn’t even bother to watch it before rejecting it.

But that’s just me.

Rainy Day Bondage?

Notice! This clip was re-instated on PornHub, so you can now view it for free. No need to pay for it, unless you want to download it for your personal collection.

I added a new clip to my clip store that is not really a mud clip, but this seemed like the best place to put it. In this clip, I am tied up in the woods in the rain. It’s just a basic, uncomfortable bondage against which I struggle aggressively.

We’ve been getting rain every day, lately, and the estuaries have been running too high to do anything in the swamp mud. The mosquitoes in the woods are big enough to knock my camera over. In spite of all that, I decided I was going to make the best of the situation and I set up to shoot a video in the rain.

I had to keep the bondage simple, but I also wanted it to be a difficult and convincing predicament. As it turned out, I got myself tied up tight enough that I really could not escape. Of course, I had a plan to get free. I tied my ankles to a tree and I tied my wrists behind my back and to another tree in strappado fashion. It was difficult to get my wrists hiked up far enough, but I managed. I’m glad I didn’t get them any higher, because it was a pretty challenging bondage as it was.

I only had two complaints about the video. The first is that I didn’t really get a good angle on my face when I was face down in the mud puddle. The second is that the rain was pretty loud, but that’s not a huge deal.

A Windy Day in the Swamp

With an impending full moon and no recent rain, the afternoon low tide was likely to be pretty low. The wind was blowing pretty hard, which threatened to create a wind tide, but I figured it would be nice to go for a paddle, even if I couldn’t find any mud.

The wind turned out to be a real challenge for this out-of-condition old man. I tried to maintain a strong but sustainable cadence as I labored against a strong headwind. I did get breaks from the wind, as the river snakes back and forth. I had a 2.5 mile (4 km) paddle to my destination.

When I arrived, I encountered an unexpected obstacle. It’s kind ironic that I had packed a lot of gear for this trip but the one thing I really needed, I didn’t have. That was my machete. The grass had grown up since my last visit and my naked body was no match for the sadistic saw grass. By the time I made my way to the mud, I was bleeding in multiple places and I had lost much of my enthusiasm.

I did go in the mud (as you can see in the pictures), and I tried to enjoy myself as much as I could. I only set up one camera to record the event. Once I finished, I had to make my way back to the creek through the tall grass to clean up, then I had to go back to get the camera, and finally return to the boat. By the time I was back at my boat, I was a bloody mess. I still had time to sink some more, but I just wasn’t up for another pass through the gauntlet. If I had brought my machete, I could have cleared a path, but alas, I did not.

The paddle back to the car was also an exercise in endurance, but needless to say, I made it back and my arms got a great workout.

Mud-Pit Maintenance

Check out this PornHub video to see what fun I had, today, working on the mud pit.

I stripped down to my jean cut-offs, grabbed a shovel, and headed into the woods to check the condition of the mud-pit and give it a stir. I ended up taking off my cut-offs and having fun. I was wearing my thong with a built in cock-ring under my jeans. Sadly, I didn’t include any frames of my naked penis, but if you must see it, it’s in the PornHub video.

Bank Censorship FYI

Just FYI, the quicksand videos are disappearing from my store as each one gets flagged for featuring an actor dying. Today, my Oct 4, 2019 video (“Far Off the Beaten Path”) was removed. A month ago it was “Left to Die”, which had a pretty damning title from a time when these rules didn’t apply.

Now, mind you, the banks are happy to bankroll high budget movies that feature actors getting maimed, mutilated, tortured, raped and brutally murdered, but if I even hint at a nefarious end, the video is banned.

This could go one of two ways: Either the quicksand videos will disappear forever, or I’ll put some of them on PornHub either for purchase or for free viewing. I’m sure PornHub will catch up to C4S soon enough, but it might buy me some time.

As I sit here writing this, it’s obvious that I have never died in one of my clips. It is all just fantasy role playing and it would be perfectly legal for me to do it if I were not selling “adult” content.

Just be warned, this is what the future has in store for us. If you want a collection of quicksand videos, you’d better not waste too much time.

New Erotic Swamp Bondage Clip

This clip is from May 14, 2020. I uploaded a short Vlog/preview clip to PornHub. The preview includes some behind the scenes that is not in the download clip on C4S.

On May 14, I went back to a rig I set up last year and had mostly forgotten about. The rig is simply an 8 ft board with steel rings screwed into both ends, then driven into the mud at an angle. By passing a rope through the ring that is buried deep in the mud and tying one end of the rope to my body, I can pass the free end of the rope through the top ring and tie that off to hold myself down in the mud. By adding a one-way tightener, it’s possible to pull myself deeper and deeper and just keep taking up the slack in the rope so I cannot resurface.

As I often do, I tied the rope around my genitals so I would be pulled down by my cock and balls. Personally, I find that makes the struggle very erotic. Once it was pulled deep enough, with my ankles tied around the board at the surface, all I had to do was lean back to both tug at my cock and force my head under the mud.

By the time I was done playing, I was getting cold, so I didn’t get to masturbate to orgasm. I had to get rinsed off, dried and dressed so I could raise my core body temperature. It was, however, an excellent adventure and a much needed break from the project I was working on.

May 14 Mud-Break

I started making a video blog about this trip, but my narration just sounded corny. I went out today because the tide was looking like it might get very low and I needed a break from my demolition project.

The weather was a mild 70F/21C with a light breeze. It could have been warmer. I was shivering by the time I got ready to clean up, and the water isn’t very warm. I was fine once I was dried off; the sun was very warm.

Right now, I’m just exhausted, so I’ll leave you with a video frame. I’ll describe the scene when I release the video. I had a good time.
