AVN AWARDs BEST BDSM 2010 Commentary





THE WINNER BEST BDSM 2010 WAS:


Best BDSM Release


Written Jan 5 2010:

I was looking over the Best BDSM Release for 2010 from this upcoming
AVN Award on Saturday. Some of the entries are fairly good, while the
other simply make me scratch my head in confusion at the stupidity of
the selection. SERIOUSLY.

So let's get that CRAP out of the way first


Club Jenna

No offense to Emily Marilyn who is used as the OBVIOUS token BDSM
performer in this film -- but SERIOUSLY?

AGAIN?

The first film won because it is a sex film disguised as a BDSM film.
This film has almost NO real BDSM content. And should NOT have been
considered as a BDSM film.

And this film is more of the same. So I guess for the SEX film
industry, this film will probably win as it is a SEX film with only
lip service done to the BDSM content. Which is WORSE than a shame as
it is a bad joke to those who do enjoy serious BDSM content.

Two fingers down the throat!

* "Under the Lash"
Bizarre Videos

You already know my attitude on Keith Gordon's films. And this film
is more of the same as far as I am concerned. But at least he is
being more honest here as the BDSM is DEFINITELY only used as foreplay
for the sex and not the focus of the segments.

The sex scene between Wesley Black and Claudia Rossi is done well, no
doubt.

But if you are looking for straight sex, are you REALLY going to be
interested in the BDSM action? Or are you going to be considering the
BDSM action to be intrusive to the sex?

Okay now that the obvious "sex films disguised as BDSM" distractions
are out of the way, let's consider the real BDSM films regardless of
whether light or heavy
|
|
|
* "Abducting Julie"

A solid BDSM film that focuses on the power domination of the target
(namely Julie Simone herself) and her reaction to the bondage.

The ending is not as powerful as some would have hoped (raises hand)
But this film IS a good indulgent BDSM film that showcases Julie
Simone's serious attendence to doing good fetish productions. I hope
she continues for some time to come despite her recent announcement
that she has left her much publicized boy/girl adult film career for
the mainstream adult films.


though Julie MAY do some for her own production company which IS
continuing.

Anastasia Pierce Productions

A good indulgent stocking and pantyhose fetish film from Anastasia
Pierce with Jewell Marceau and Paige Richards showcasing the softer
more lesbian indulgent form of BDSM. The film is framed as four
dreams of Anastasia about her fetish friends giving a long indulgent
lesbian setup with the BDSM being used as a foreplay technique. While
not as powerful as say her Taboo series films, this film is a very
good segmented compilation of Anastasia's softer BDSM focus.

And speaking of Anastasia's Taboo series
|

|
* "Hustler's Taboo: Decadence"
Hustler Video

This is the one with Anastasia dominating the now retired Satine
Phoenix in a full neck corset and more. Nuff said.

|
* "Bride of Sin"
Madison Bound/Blowfish

I hate giving bad reviews because I KNOW how much effort is needed in
releasing and getting the money to make a film but let's be real ==
this film is NOT Madison's best. The sound quality alone makes a LOT
of us shake our heads on production quality. TRUE I see that Madison
was HONEST in her performance as the quote unquote loose women who has
an intense lesbian affair almost on the very day of her heterosexual
marriage.

And yes EVERYONE STILL keeps going on about how quote unquote shocking
it was that Ariel X was giving Young an intense orgasm ON A CHURCH
PEW. I LOUDLY applaud Madison's creativity and sticking to her guns
on sexual freedom even against the taboo of religious obedience with
the obvious metaphors in this film. I think it is a solid BDSM film
due to the elaborate bondage and the chemistry between the performers
which all seemed very authentic. But should that give her best film
of the year?
|
|
|
* "Sorority Hazing Horror"
Severe Society Films

Solid idea in a more or less real world setting (the dreaded
intentional suffering that we all go through in order to prove
ourselves as loyal initiates in any group) that suffers because of the
execution not wanting to be the next Max Hardcore obscenity
prosecution.

The paddling in the kitchen is the best reason why this film does NOT
overwhelm the BDSM consumer though shows why some will enjoy it --
sheer indulgence of the light BDSM action that continues through the
entire film.

Enjoyable to be sure for the light to moderate BDSM film consumer.
But best of the year?

* "Jewell's Darling Maid"
Crown Jewell/Pulse

Let's be real. Jewell is one of the longest lasting fetish BDSM
performers and producers for a reason. And this film is no exception.

But this film was released in 2007! True it is only now being RE-
released by Pulse for the mainstream adult film consumer. And that
should NOT really be a limiting factor as this IS a good BDSM film and
Darling is just cute as the target! Darling should get more work from
the BDSM production market than just House of Gord if she wants it.

I admit OPENLY that I would have NO problem in Jewell winning the best
BDSM film for this film. But simply put this is NOT the best of
Jewell's films that have been released since Jewell did this film over
three years ago now. Though again it IS a good BDSM film that stays
focused on the BDSM and fetish elements throughout the entire film
without abandoning the fetish for the lesbian interaction.

* "Mean Dungeon"
Kick Ass films

This film is more real world than high end studio production of male
subs getting abused. The facesitting is fairly good but the
production levels should have been better.

The REAL attraction of this film is that this film shows BDSM in real
settings, especially the tease and denial of the male subs. And that
is why this film will NOT win.

|
* "Pure Fetish"
Pure Play

The balloon fetish usage in this film kills this entry for me. Look
some can use it well as in GOTHIC Media's first film (sure sure I
know that statement is heresy but the ORIGINAL Gothic Media was good
when Gwen Media v2 Jon White's Gwen Media was active as there was
competition to inspire Gothic) and Pure Play has released some good
BDSM films. But this specific film is just not a focused BDSM film as
it tries to touch on TOO MANY fetish ideas and does NOT focus on any
particular topic to really explore that topic well, unlike say Madison
Young's entry.

And speaking on "over indulgent everything, but the kitchen sink"
attitude fetish films --
|
|
|
* "The Portal 3: Steffy's Rubber Adventures"
GwenMedia

As I said before, this film COULD have been a nice little BDSM male
domination film. Instead it is a latex fetish film that dumps the
latex fetish,

AND sex film that does NOT show the actual sex in the shower scene
between Steffy and January

AND story driven sci-fi film that --- well, ends as it does
(I won't reveal the ending for those who have not seen it yet)

but you can guess right..... [sigh]

If it had remained focused on the quote unquote ball busting session
alone this COULD have been a great BDSM film. Instead it is ALL over
the place and hits none of the fetish elements with any real power.
And the sad thing is this film COULD have and SHOULD have been FAR
better.

* Ivy Manor Slaves 3: The Dream Team
GwenMedia

Same problem. All tease and no fulfillment. And to make it worse the
second part of this film was delayed TEN (10!!!)

TEN

TEN FRIGGIN!!!!

MONTHS from the release of the first part!! March 1st for part 1 and
December 30th for the second part

March to April

April to May

May to June

June to July

July to August

August to September

September to October

October to November

November to December

December to January MINUS three days!!!

Just for the waiting ALONE, this film should NOT be considered for an
award minus the fact that there is very little powerful BDSM action
and an incohesive execution of the largely missing plot.

KinkKrew

If you are going to do sex in bondage THIS is how you do it. You make
sure the dental spreader gag stays in place while you throat f*ck the
target. You make sure she is STILL TIED UP with her arms almost in a
reverse prayer when you penetrate. You make sure the woman SMOTHERS
her male target so he is GASPING for air before he is allowed to sex
his partner for a power exchange sex session! In short, you make it
real or as close to real as possible, And that is what you mostly get
with this film -- BDSM sex shown in its non-soft, not light touchy
POWER exchange reality.

Again I am no fan of the sex being the focus of a BDSM film and this
IS a sex film. But if you are going to select a film for best BDSM
film you better give something more than the lip service to the BDSM
elements as so many USA producers do. And this DOES do more than lip
service. It does endurance service, butt pounding service and air cut
off service. hehehehe

Only note for those who have not seen this film, I say is get the
EUROPEAN version of this film NOT the Antigua re-edit that most of the
USA consumers are getting as some of the harder elements are removed
in order to again avoid any possible legal problems for USA
distribution.

* "Cindy's Correction"
B&D Pleasures

B&D Pleasures is the staple producer of the low range to mid level
BDSM production company for its mostly real world productions. This
film is no exception with real BDSM action though there are some
indulgent elements of course such as the slave accepting her position
to living in a dog cage/kennel. But the action is the key feature in
this film as it is clear to see that Cindy is really suffering under
the flogging she is getting. And that is the reason why this film is
considered for best BDSM film real world action. The only problem is
that while real, the BDSM action is NOT the best or the most
powerful. Though for the sex film consumer -- NOT the BDSM specific
film consumer -- this maybe more than enough reality that such sex
film consumers want to endure.

* "Slave 02"
JM Productions

There is a reason this one is listed last. I am going to let you
guess as to that. Otto Bauer is a well known member of the BDSM
community who knows how to blend the sex with the BDSM elements. And
he does that blendage very well as he makes sure to use the SEX as a
background to the power domination, rather than making the BDSM second
to the sex which so many adult film producers are guilty of doing.
True, I wish this film was MORE focused on the BDSM aspect rather than
the sex, say in the technique of PD or kink.com. But as they are NOT
releasing their products on DVD, we have to accept this level of
content. And overall this film's BDSM focus is fairly good, though
there is room for improvement to be sure. Hopefully we will see more
of that focus in Slave 3 and maybe the release of films from kink and
PD on DVD at least in Europe == though please forgive me if I do NOT
hold my breath for such DVD releases.


We shall see what the sex film industry thinks which company should be
given their highest award for that company's promotion for 2010 on
this Saturday.
