Being heroes, my guess is that this was a good way to show their strength when they busted loose or found a way out from their bondage. It also served to heighten tension when the "good guy" was temporarily subdued.

Thanks very much for another excellent compilation.

However, I am still waiting for a compilation of Peplum and Arabian Nights female slave market scenes.
