Anne Rice's novel "Exit To Eden" dealt with a jaded S & M dominatrix who unexpectedly fell in love with one of her submissives and goes to New Orleans to do a little soul searching. Garry Marshall's film version deals with Elliot Slater who travels to the S & M fantasy island of Eden to deal with his sexual fantasies. There he meets camp commander Mistress Lisa and the two fall in love and travel to New Orleans so Lisa can see where her mother grew up. This film was viciously panned by critics and audiences, but I think it is one of the 90's best movies. If you like spicy, sexual, funny stories, then Exit To Eden might just hit the spot for you.
