Storyline

Much as the title suggests, Beyond Vanilla explores the kinkier aspects of sex on the other side of vanilla. With interviews, demonstrations and a good dose of how-to instructions, this documentary covers the gamut of fetishes and SM practices. From bondage, flogging and fisting to knife play, fire and golden showers, director Claes Lilja takes us on an unforgettable journey to the wilder side of sex. Sharing fantasies, experiences and pleasures, the over 60 people interviewed in the film help to blur boundaries and shed new light on sexuality and sexual practices. Open your mind and the rest will follow... Written by Anonymous

Very positive - dealing with various extreme sexual desires.
12 January 2001 | by (Palm Springs, CA) – See all my reviews

Extremely well shot and edited film detailing various sexual behaviours, some of which, will be considered extreme by many. Very candid......extremely graphic sexually.....and shows in great detail different types of sex which consenting adults participate.

As it's title indicates.....the film goes "Beyond Vanilla". This film will be an eye opener for many......will bother some.....but above all us, is an accurate depiction of various sexual practices and very good narratives in regards to why men and women enjoy such sexual activities.

Look for this film to be banned in certain areas......so watch it while you can.
