I remember seeing these books as a kid, and wondering why I liked them so much. I guess I know why now. I actually read both of them, and in The Solid Gold Kid, he spends much of the book tied and gagged. And if you visit Bondage Jeopardy, you can find where they recreated the Hardy Boys cover. Hot!
Did I also mention that I liked the old Batman TV series? Anyone want to guess why? I mean, who among us bondage loving twinks didn’t get turned on by Robin in peril? Check out my own small recreation at my website. (These particular pics are located in My Gallery > Unique)
