Who should watch this? Anyone wanting to see girls wearing colored rope in very light bondage scenes.
Who should avoid this? Anyone wanting anal and hard-edged bondage.
My short review:
First off, I’m by no means an expert on bondage or anything of that nature. The Ties That Bind is a playful gonzo attempt at bondage using colored rope for stylish bindings and weavings. However, the bindings don’t stay knotted too long, especially once the sex action starts. The ropes stay on but they are no longer restrictive though the girls may pretend that they are as they hold their hands behind their back.
Alektra plays some sort of dom who pops in and out of scenes but is an otherwise non-participant except for her 2 scenes. By the way, Alektra looks hot with the mesh halter and black tape on her nipples and a short micro-skirt. The scenes start with the girl wearing the colored rope and are led by Alektra to a motionless apparatus with a dildo or two attached. The dildo(s) are stationary and are used to some effect.
Well, enough of the scene set-ups. The sex action was pretty average but the ropes was a nice but wasted touch. The best scene was the Alektra/Sammie scene. Sammie, the blonde hottie is bound by her wrists and ankles inside a cage. Sammie is let out by Alektra and is made to suck on a dildo attached to an end of a pole. Sammie mounts the dildo and rides it for a little while before sucking on the dildo some more. Alektra hops on the other dildo for a brief ride to mirror Sammie’s actions. Alektra gets off the dildo and watches Sammie take the dildo in doggie. The scene cuts away to Sammie and Alektra sharing a small double-ended dildo in their pussies. It’s too bad Sammie never went back to performing in b/g scenes. Oh, well.
The rest of the movie and sex action was average at best and nothing you haven’t seen before in the glut of average porn out there. The scenes would’ve been more interesting if they took a harder tone with the ropes and bondage theme instead of this politically correct angle. Nice use of the ropes as props but nothing a trip to Home Depot didn’t solve.

If you like light, playful bondage, then give this a shot as a rental.
