his first step into leather and bondage over 3 decades ago, ty dehner
found that memories were not enough and began writing about his
adventures. Several of these true life experiences were published in the once famous
Bound & Gagged magazine. As his experiences grew, so did his ideas and
he started to write fiction, with his first published story being titled “Skin boi”. It
was well received on the internet and to this day is one of his most
With the explosion of the internet there were many new places to share
bondage fiction. But ty found that many of the sites didn’t last and he
felt there was room for something better for all of us that were into
man to man bondage and gear action. In 1999, he created the online
magazine Ropedweb. Over time, he published his own stories, along with
fetish pictures and videos that he also wrote and directed. Ropedweb also featured stories by talented writers from around the world. By the time
Ropedweb came to an end in 2005 it had been viewed in 160 countries
around the world with hundreds of stories told, thousands of original gear and bondage images and over a dozen exclusive videos.
Since his introduction as a submissive into the leather BDSM world, ty
has been involved with many community activities including Ropedweb's sponsoring
the International Deaf Leather contest in Seattle, taking over the
historic New World Rubbermen and donating the contents to the Leather
Archives in Chicago, marching in the pride parade in Vancouver, B.C.,
creating exciting web sites for Dungeon on the Bay, the Jail Training
Center, and several others. ty dehner has attended many
fetish events including International Mr. Leather in Chicago, Rubbout in
Vancouver, B.C., Dore Alley and Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco and has enjoyed
meeting the many leather, rubber, sport gear fans that attend. He has experienced legendary places such as Hellfire Club in Chicago, the former Academy in Atlanta, and SirNContrl's Dungon on the Bay.
More recently ty has continued to write short stories about gear and bondage
which have been shared on the MetalbondNYC web site. There you can find many new works, as well as some that appeared in Ropedweb along with some personal experiences.
Through all his writing ty has had one focus, to share his kinky experiences
and dreams with others in the hopes that they will step out into this
exciting and creative community to be part of it. He has always
enjoyed hearing from those that enjoy his work, as well as those that
share their experiences after reading his work. If that includes you,
