spot on!


This movie is excellent and reinforces what we practice in the kink community....safe, sane, consentual kink. I think most of the bad reviews or ratings are from those who havent seen the movie

Spot on? Not really. With money as the driver I find this to be very different from consent between partners. Quite a few people in the movie are clearly not too into BDSM but into the money. Not to mention Kinks output is watched by many that aren't part of BDSM, and enjoy visual abuse without the understanding of negotiating consent with a real partner.

Can you name a person they showed in the movie who didn't seem into BDSM? Perhaps the gentleman who was in a scene with a female dom seemed a bit like he was just generally a porn actor looking to make money so he could move on to being behind the camera but almost everyone else seemed to be aroused or interested in BDSM to some degree.

Certainly, people viewing Kink's videos could be horrible abusive *beep* but Kink can't be responsible for that. If anything, they are bringing those fantasies to these people while NOT abusing the actors (versus other porn made for that market which may treat performers worse.) And of course, they are known for their post-scene interviews with the actors involved, which of course the viewer could fast forward past, but do show the consensual nature of the shoots. Of course it's not the same as a one on one BDSM interaction but in this film they did show more of the negotiations that go on when they film a scene. It's porn, it's not reality, so it will be different.

That being said, it was more like a commercial for kink.com than an actual unbiased documentary. If they had talked to people who worked for the site who were not currently being paid by them, they may have gotten a more full picture.

Wouldn't this documentary be helpful in showing those people who enjoy visual abuse to understand that it should derive from a mutual agreement and understanding rather that force and cruelty?

That being said, I suppose a person interested only in the result of the negotiations (the scenes/videos) may not care to know that it's sort of fake--that the person receiving pain consented to and put limits on it.
