The Enigmatic Angel's Kinky Cinematic Journey

























The Good, The Bad - and The Cheesy

Do you remember what was the first kinky film you ever watched out on the big screen?

Recently, I tripped down memory lane when a series of clicks led me to remember my first kinky cinema outing - Preaching To the Perverted.

Flashback 10 years ago.

I sat in the old Eaton Centre cinema in downtown Montreal (which had become repertoire-esque in those last days before it closed) and felt such a sense of experiencing the wickedly forbidden - right out in the open where anyone could see me.

The theatre was not even half-full. It was a sea of fashionable black, as if we had all agreed on what to wear before we left the house. I felt like there was a HUGE spotlight on me because my fellow movie goers were mostly men sitting alone, with the odd couple here and there. I was the only woman there by herself. There was a touch of leather of course - leather pants and jackets - and a black studded collar or two.

A man came in and sat down a few rows behind me, in the back section of the cinema. He gave me one hard stare and I suspected he didn't want anyone sitting near him - and I guessed at the reason why. During the movie, I heard some constant rocking sounds that came from his direction and you can easily guess the reason for it. I had to try not to laugh as I wondered if he got off during the movie.

As for the movie itself, well for me it was such a decadent and tasty visual treat. It was about a moral crusader who tries to infiltrate the world of an infamous and beautiful Dominatrix. In the end, he just could not resist her wicked and enticing allure. Oh sure, I did think the end seemed a little pat and tacked on - but the rest of the movie? Oh my! It was tasty and gorgeous and the clothes!
Guinevere Turner, who played the Evil Temptress Tanya Cheex, was so damn HOT in her delicious outfits. I think that might have been the first time I lusted for a woman. It sure left some questions in my mind. And I was so sad when the movie came to an end. Oh and just for fun, as I got up to leave the cinema I couldn't help but look at my highly-active fellow cinema-goer as he left. He looked rather sheepish when I just gave him one long, cool look. Kind of like a deer caught in headlights.

That was my first kinky cinema outing (outing in more ways than one) and that sure released the dam. Through-out the years, I always kept my eyes peeled for other kinky flicks and went to all the ones I could find.

There was Quills, a movie about the Marquis de Sade and the time he spent in prison.
Geoffrey Rush did a fine job of playing a beguiling Marquis, leading a young priest, played by the tasty Joaquin Phoenix - and others - into temptation - all while still locked up in his cell.

The most atrocious and abominable rendition of a bdsm book had to have been the disastrous big screen adaption of Anne Rice's Exit To Eden. All the bdsm content was turned into a spoof and a joke. All of sudden a totally ludicrous subplot containing thieves and undercover cops had been inserted into the story-line - all to include 2 big stars - Rosie O'Donnell and Dan Aykroyd . I suspected the director and producer did that because they didn't think the movie would be carried on its own momentum. Well, it was a total cop-out. Here was a chance to bring to life one of my favourite and sublime Anne Rice books and it was made into an unattractive and ridiculous mess. I was incensed. The male friend I brought with me (who I later dated and who had a small taste for kink it turned out) did seem turned on by the bdsm content though - so something good came out of that movie at least. The movie was a great opener for me to discuss kinky things with him.

Most recently, I watched for the nth time, one of my favourite big screen bdsm movies, Secretary, on dvd.

What can I say about Secretary? Why do I like it so much?

Well, it's not about the bdsm or fetish scene at all. It's about 2 regular human beings who explore the concepts of Domination and submission together. I think that may be one of the reasons why I enjoy it so much - it reminds me a bit about me and my own journey.

Oh and while I was musing about the kinky films I've seen on the big screen, I stumbled upon a few interesting kinky film festivals, which I've now added to my blog under the header "Tasty Film Links".

Happy Kinky Movie Viewing, Kinky Folks!

Angel, I must look for some of the titles... I remember watching part of Quills and enyoying the lush scenes; I truly did NOT care for the secretary - just didn't do a thing for me - in fact I found it boring! What I would LOVE to see though is the Night Porter, supposed to be an excellent movie.

Blue Velvet is GREAT but 91/2 weeks SUCKED in my estimation.

@selkie:

Which Night Porter are you talking about, selkie?

This one?
"The Night Porter (Italian: Il Portiere di notte) is a controversial 1974 film by Italian director Liliana Cavani, starring Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling."

Ir sounds intriguing!

This is funny - I actually loved 9 1/2 weeks. Well, that was the last movie where I thought Mickey Rourke still looked hot, until he morphed into some peculiar creature. But I have to admit - the book is much, much better and more insightful.

Blue Velvet is AWESOME. Funny, I didn't think to classify it into bdsm - but you're right - it really fits. I'm a big David Lynch fan too.

I'll be posting more kinky cinematic thoughts...stay tuned!

yes, that one! It is a TOTAL classic - I am DYING to find a copy. I agree that Mickey Rourke looked totally hot and has since turned into something peculier LOL! and I like anything Lynch does! What a quirky mind he has!
