Just a quick follow-up for those on this website who generously offered me advice in this matter.
FIRST THE GOOD NEWS: The producers of the bondage catalog were so annoyed with my hassling them with legal threats, they elected not to use any of my content in their online and print editions. Hooray!
NOW THE BAD NEWS: Since they had legally acquired full ownership of my nude photos via my initial signature, they decided to recoup the session cost by selling the digital rights to a website that specializes in "revenge porn," (ie. embarrassing pictures of ex-husbands and ex-boyfriends taken by their girlfriends during good times, later to be exploited after the breakup for the purpose of humiliation and revenge.) Upon contacting the site's webmaster via email, I found out they "do" occasionally remove content from the site upon the requests of the men in the photos ... but naturally there is a substantial "processing" fee of up to $1000 per photo which I cannot afford. So I am hoping the site goes under soon, and the photos should eventually go away.
Meanwhile, my mainstream modeling career DOES appear to have ended. I tried leaving that unfortunate incident off my resume and pretending it never happened, but in the half-dozen interviews since, EVERY interviewer invariably opens with a question about that "bondage porn" shoot last year.
On the plus side I have been able to get occasional work OUTSIDE the usual agencies.
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE GENEROUS ADVICE, FOLKS. HOPE OTHERS CAN LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES.
