The death of a woman named Mona whose body was dumped in a sand pit leads Grissom and Catherine to a fetish club run by Lady Heather. Since Mona was a dominant, Lady Heather was surprised that her employee was tortured and suffocated to death. This leads Grissom to conclude that the victim was a 'switch', someone who could play both the dominant or the submissive role. Written by Ploy P.

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Slaves of Las Vegas
7 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm quite curious as to if I watched a particular episode that was cut by censors for national television restored for the DVD release because the body of a dominatrix found in a sand box is presented in naked form on a table in the CSI lab as Grissom looks over her for evidence as to what killed her. We get plenty of ass and even some quick shots of her breast.

The CSI team enter the fetish world as the body of the dominatrix is linked to a "pleasure palace", a place where those with "S&M proclivities" could find to unearth their every desire. In this case, however, a client went a bit too far. The proprietor of the establishment is Lady Heather(Melinda Clarke, an extraordinary creature who "dominates" her scenes), a highly intelligent woman who can read individuals exceptionally well, even Grissom, a very guarded man who has been able, until coming in contact with her, to shield himself from those around him, having met his match with her. Latex with the imprint of a specific watch and straws used to open airwaves when an leather mask is zipped over a face could be what apprehends the one responsible for the woman's murder. There's something disturbingly erotic about the scene where Grissom goes over the body of the dead woman, first with a blue light, later with water, carefully studying her for any clues as to what might've killed her(not to mention, it develops a history of abuse, though it is established that she hadn't had sex in a little while). How Kelly Rowan(a lawyer) and her downtrodden husband, a weakling who she keeps under subjection play into the case is quite a stunner. This episode gets more than a bit racy from time to time as we get a glimpse into the "abberant" sex slave world which brings in quite a substantial income for Lady Heather.

To be honest this episode works so well because of Lady Heather's conversations with both Catherine and Grissom, neither of who are as turned off by her source of revenue on a nightly basis as you might be led to believe.
