Tasteful and erotic; personal and intimate; top-notch documentary
7 April 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

An impressive insight into the psyche of kinkier sex. These interviews seem to really touch the truths people feel and experience, and it's refreshing to hear. Stimulating but not pornographic, informative without judging, and professionally done, I thought it was terrific!!
