Maria Beatty - Elegant Spanking (1995)


This nouveau, sleekly produced film features the story of a unique lesbian S&M relationship between a mistress and her maid. Enter their fantasy: a seductive chain of nostalgically hot images, shocking, amusing and dripping with sexual perversion. The masquerade of dominance and submission is performed in the spirit of decadence, sexual freedom and spiritual abandonment. Goddess Rosemary is a hypnotic dancer with a beautiful body who seduces and punishes her Kitty. She knows how to snap the desire, feed the soul and materialize the unrelenting passion of kitty. This ‘post-modern romantic subversion’ shows fetish, fantasy and role-playing, mutual female masturbation, bare-bottom spanking, spike heel and foot worship in a totally new and classic approach to lesbian S&M erotica. One fetish sequence after another sucks you in on a tide, pulls you along in a climactic ride into the dream sequence finale.

Maria Beatty - The Black Glove (1997)


A daring exploration of the fine line between fantasy and reality, art & erotica...

The mysterious world of the senses that Maria inhabits is one of complete surrender to the wills and whims of the hypnotically intense Mistress Morgana, and the exotic, ambiguous creature, TV Sabrina. The brooding aura of total sexual abandon is present in every gesture, every slap, & caress in this theatre of passion. The flame of the candle that illuminates and torments, reveals the wondrous form of the willing slave, whose haunting wide eyes and full moist parted lips recall the classic silent screen goddesses Pola Negri, Louise Brooks...but they never dared reveal themselves so totally, so openly to the camera’s eager and demanding gaze. This visionary noir exercise examines and crosses the boundaries of dominance and submission in its artful escalation of pleasure & pain, bondage & menace, fetishism & foot worship; culminating in the hot wax torture of the slave’s most private parts... she writhes in ecstasy.

William Rotsler - The Agony of Love (1966)


A bored housewife rents an apartment where she indulges in all of her sexual fantasies.

Sounds almost like Bunuel's Belle De Jour before it was made from an erotica director. But, Radley Metzger remade Last Year At Marienbad so to speak in his The Lickerish Quartet.

Al Adamson - Naughty Stewardesses (1975)


THE NAUGHTY STEWARDESSES follows the typical pattern of a Roger Corman "nurse" film (very popular at the time), only with stewardesses. The plot follows the exploits of four sexy flight attendants, and each of them disrobes in front of the camera and/or engage in intercourse at one point. There's raunchy action with a captain and a lass aboard his plane (in which a small child looks on to get a first hand sex ed class), and a wild party where a nude dude is actually a cake (he gets slobbered by one of the stewardesses!).

Jesús Franco - La casa de las mujeres perdidas (1983)


Review by Nzoog Wahrlfhehen:
Desdemona lives on a remote island with her strange family: her father Mario Pontecorvo, her stepmother Dulcinea and her mentally retarded sister Pulova. The background is one of endless radio and TV broadcasts of commercials and ridiculous programmes. Desdemona tries to ward off her boredom by masturbating, provoking her father or teaching her sister how to ‘play with herself. She even goes as far as asking her father if he would fancy raping her. The father and Dulcinea do not have a successful sex life and he would seem to be constantly haunted by his past. Mario is an expatriate Argentinean actor who claims to be a political refugee. Dulcinea hates her stepdaughters and will not stop at beating or abusing them if she deems it necessary. The family routine is interrupted with the arrival of a very virile hunter who will contribute even further to break down the family relationships. First, she fucks with the flighty Desdemona and Dulcinea herself is to later surrender herself to him in order to satisfy her sexual desires, while Mario has no choice but to look on helplessly at what is happening.

Fumihiko Kato - SM daizenshu (1984)


OK Amalgamation Of A Few Well-Know Pinku Films...

SM DAIZENSHU - BEST OF SM is basically clips from a few "popular" pinku films (some I recognized, some I didn't...) that is put into the context of a "story" - by adding "book-end" sequences that turn the film clips into slightly more than just a compilation film.

A young female projectionist watches some Nikkatsu pinku clips, and gets all hot-'n'-bothered doing so. One of the longer clips is from WIFE TO BE SACRIFICED (one of my favorite pinku films...), and I think in the opening sequences, one of the other films shown was NOBLE LADY: BOUND VASE. According to Tom Weisser's seminal volume on pinku films, Japanese Cinema Encyclopedia: The Sex Films - the other films shown were the original FLOWER AND SNAKE (which I have yet to see), and DARK HAIR, VELVET SOUL - though I just watched that film a week ago and none of the clips appeared to be from that film. Anyway, after her private-screening and bit of sweaty self-touchy, her film reels grow a mind of their own, and lovingly wrap the projectionist in their embrace...

Nick Zedd - Fuck You (Asshole Version) (1988)


Note: Fuck You (Asshole Version) is one of the rarer Nick Zedd films. It is essentially an early primitive version of the director's highly experimental (anti)pornographic collage film Whoregasm (1988), albeit with dual-projection, different coloring and music, and at about half the running time. Fuck You (Asshole Version) is also missing the 'sex tape' footage between Zedd and his then-girlfriend Susan Manson. It also lacks a title screen and concludes just as abruptly as it begins. Additionally, Whoregasm begins and ends with an image of an eyeball. Zedd would also incorporate some of the Whoregasm footage into his feature War Is Menstrual Envy (1992).

While certainly pornographic like Whoregasm (both films incorporate vintage porn loops), Fuck You (Asshole Version) lacks much of the homoerotic imagery that made Whoregasm so subversive.

Apparently, Fuck You (Asshole Version) was released once as a bonus feature on a VHS release of Zedd's Police State. Like both Whoregasm and War Is Menstrual Envy, Fuck You (Asshole Version) incorporates outtakes from Police State.

While I appreciate dual-projection, I personally prefer Whoregasm.

Music: "The Good and The Bad" by Sonic Youth

From Deathtripping: The Extreme Underground by Jack Sargeant:

"Zedd still screens WHOREGASM as a two screen double projection, and one video edit of this exists under the spurious title FUCK YOU (ASSHOLE VERSION). A single projection version of WHOREGASM has also been released on video. Neither of these versions are particularly satisfactory, illustrating the major problem with video when film goes beyond its traditionally prescribed limits."
