Taking 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 requested pieces.

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.
