this is an real gem from the golden era of porn, 20 January 2006
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

Excellent SM themed hardcore starring Terri Hall and Jamie Gillis, although the latter performs less sex in this than his manservant within the film played by Zebedy Colt who not only performs one of the most erotic scenes alongside the leading lady but also a really surprising one with Mr Gillis himself! Some really fine sequences, a lot of 'serious' dialogue, most of it just about avoiding seeming too crass combine with incredibly well put together soundtrack mixing what sounds like a mix of Bach and Bacharach. The print I saw looked like it had spent ten years spooling through some 42nd Street cine projector but never mind, this is an real gem from the golden era of porn and it also includes a never seen before and certainly never to be seen again erotic ballet sequence featuring ex-ballet dancer, Terri Hall herself.
