Bondage on Cinemax, 14 October 2005
Author: Michael Williams from United States

This film was one of the staples on cine max and it's after dark shows in the early 80's. So got to see it numerous times then, unfortunately it was before the common use of the VCR so never got a copy of it. One of the best scenes, for someone into it that is, is where Vanessa straps herself into a torture machine and gets whipped, it's short, but it's sweet and makes you wish you were there for filming on that day. Other than that scene the movie is fairly unremarkable. How ever it was worth setting an alarm clock to get up at three o'clock in the morning just to catch it. It was one of those rare occurrences when bondage was being shown on TV.
