    I would rather have preferred hearing this news directly from kink.com instead of from a trade paper.
  • I would really like a comment from Kink on this. I will miss The Upper Floor shoots.

    Hi everyone -

    Popping in to say that the directors are committed to keep shooting movies for Kink. Most sites should carry on as they have been, they just will not be shooting at the Armory. We are looking for solutions for TUF. That site is tied to the building and community surrounding it in such a unique way it is difficult it imagine it happening anywhere else. TUF's director had the foresight to shoot a ton of content leading up to this point however, so TUF should continue to publish for some time.
  • Dear Kink.com,
    Dear Director JamesM,

    Thank you very much indeed for the information.
    For me these news are very bad news.

    # Okay PD, HG, SAS, FM, DB, TSS and TSP can produce outside of the armory but what happend with TTOO, TUF, DB, HT, WA, ES, EB and US?
    # What are the circumtances and reasons that Kink.com is ending the film production at the armory?

    I think the quality of the film production at the armory is very high. It will be difficult to find like same or similary locations for a film production.

    All the best
    Best regards
    Have a very nice time

    Can I suggest KINK look for options in the Portland, OR area? An opportunity for synergy with other BDSM production companies located there might exist.
  • @SirMastermind -
    You can find answers to most of those questions in the article linked in the post at the beginning of this thread, and more detail in this article:

  • Dear Kink_tech_support,

    Thank you very much indeed for your information.
    It make me sad and I feel sad that the armory is not more the place of Kink.com film productions. I think the armory was really the best location for producing BDSM film productions.

    I am a really very great fan of TTOO, TUF, WA, US, TSH and so I am again a active member of Kink.com. I am a true member since 2009 of Kink.com.

    I know the Kink directors are very busy at the moment but perhaps the Kink directors and Kink.com can start Kink.com 2.0 at february or march 2017 with artificial intelligence. It would be great if each kink director would open into the forum a site "What do you wish to see?"

    All the best
    Best regards
    Have a very nice time

    Well...that;s better!(?)

    Reading this information about moving away from the Mission is very sad indeed.
    As no new location has yet been secured, how does this affect the members. I am a Kink Unlimited member and wonder as this covers every site, what will it now be covering.
    Thank you for any information that Kink Tec can give.
  • We suspect this has been in the works for some time.

    It's not the first time they've moved production. Maybe it will force some of their sites, specifically one that rhymes with Blipped Blass, to have a bit more imagination.

    Its not that surprising the Armoury although a unique building must have felt like a blessing and a curse the upkeep must be stagering . And the porn industry has changed
    the only sad fact is I am sure it will still be the white elephant draagging funds away from what is really needed new ideas and talent , As for size of the studio I have created F/M shoots in a fraction of the space and made them intresting JH/UK
  • @Ceeyou -

    We are still producing new content, just not at the castle! Subscribers can still expect updates 5 days a week.

    And of course, please keep in mind that the production schedule means that many shoots are filmed and edited weeks or sometimes even months before release, we have TONS of porn in the can and we are still producing.

    If you follow J.P. on Twitter, you can already see photos of the new dungeon space he is setting up for filming new material in Las Vegas. Other directors have already found other new spaces and commenced filming, so fear not!

    A move direct to LA is a no-brainer, right? Largest pool of models available there. If kink really believes in demystifying BDSM, what better way than using some (or better yet, all) the biggest, well-known performers? BDSM is open to everyone, and models are no exception.

    The location in which the movies are shot is secondary to the skills of the directors. As long as Kink maintains a relationship with their lead creatives, Kink subscribers will get brilliant and unique content. It will not matter where it is shot. What matters is who shoots it.

    It is sad but also presents great opportunities for new venues -- what will happen with Ultimate Surrender and S&S? Love the gladiator/dungeon feel of these sites
  • @billyg218 - Ariel X has a new location to film Ultimate Surrender in Las Vegas :D
  • YAY for Miss Ariel!

    wow! Vegas is a great idea. I personally don't like all the hype and glitz, but you will get great crowds and probably draw some talent that otherwise wouldn't participate.

    I'd visit Vegas if Kink sets up a nice operation.
    You won't meet Elvis in San Fran!
    No condom laws either in Nevada.
