As planned, the Restrained Elegance forums have now been retired and the links removed from the site. You can still access them for reference should you wish:
I’ve locked the forums so you can no longer post to them; I don’t want to worry that someone may have tried to contact me that way.
The RE community is still alive and well – everyone has moved onto social media instead of site forums. So the best places to find us are Twitter and on our “backup” social media site that we run ourselves, KinkyElephant.com.
If you are interested in seeing behind the scenes at our shoots, check out Ariel’s OnlyFans page for joyous bondage behind-the-scenes and general lunacy including Gareth the Welsh-Speaking Orangutan who loves appearing on social media. We are neither normal nor entirely serious, I’m afraid, but it is a lot of fun. We’ll still be posting behind the scenes of big RE trips here, but for the day-to-day bondage shoots we’re doing we’ve found it works much better if I concentrate on the RE production and photography and Ariel gets the behind-the-scenes. Because she loves being on camera and I don’t, I guess. I really like to be able to concentrate on the cinematography and photography when I’m shooting!
