Without question this is the most explicit R-rated movie I've ever seen, and I appreciate that such movies are available in our increasingly censored society. However, personally I didn't care for the plot, and I really didn't see the point of the movie. It will most certainly appeal to S&M/B&D enthusiasts, it's novel and uncensored, the young blond lady is very pretty (she's in her 20s, not a 'young girl' as the reviews claim), and it's very '70s in style and attitudes, but that's about all I can say for it. Too much is left unexplained. Why did the younger lady leave? What type of relationship did she have afterwards? Why was the older lady's photo included in the photo set? Why did the older lady switch roles, and was it voluntary? Most of all I couldn't understand why the members of the trio were attracted to S&M. Was it something in their past, or a control issue, or just novelty, or maybe a need to strike back at someone? Did they actually feel hatred, or were their actions independent of such emotions? It seems like a film about S&M would want to give some insight into such questions. The man also seemed presumptuous in what he could demand of strangers on his first meeting with them. Overall I thought the movie was too unrealistic and illogical to have long-term appeal.
