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 hot film
17 January 2002 | by (Bruxelles, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in the festival here in Bruxelles and I was very impressed to learn so much. It is the best film about sex I have ever seen. Now I want to see part 2! The best thing was to learn about techniques and also see the people do it. I recommend this film.
