Overworked Penthouse director Cash Markman hands in one of his low-effort films with this teasing approach to BDSM which evinces no affinity for the genre.
The six segments featuring an impressive cast go nowhere, throwing in fetish gear and an inquisitive look at the alternate life style with a result that is lukewarm tea. Mainstream fans continue to be fascinated by this sort of material, especially in the wake of "50 Shades" literary success, while fanatics have thousands of bondage/fetish videos to view plus the ubiquitous kink.com.
So Penthouse diving in with its leading hack director creates nary a ripple in the marketplace. Marcus London as a heartless guy narrates and is used in an attempt to knit the segments together but nothing of interest occurs. The voice-over giving the hint of a neo-noir mood is strictly phony, leading to mini-confrontations that are all merely excuses for "let's get to the sex scene" knee-jerk direction.
We get to see some spectacularly sexy women, including Jassie, Mikayla and Vanessa Lane, but the cynical attitude summed up in London's final line "It sucks being like everyone else" is typical of Cash's fake attempts to add supposed substance to his assembly-line drivel.
