Bringing out freedom sex and BDS&M in culture


Live Fetish sex!

I found one of my favorite stories talking with some friends in both the adult night club industry and porn industry recently   at a gathering at the Exotic Dancer conviction last year.   we spoke about what to  the things to invest in when it comes to the adult entertainment world. We talked about what it is that makes money, what it is that fans simply can not get enough of and spend their hard earned dollars on time and time again. The end conclusion of every conversation led us down the same road, Kink! Bondage, BDSM, dominance, submission, cuckold. These have been terms that have been a bit foreign to me as a reviewer and critic as I am still knew to this end of the Industry , I will not lie but the sales numbers in the industry tell a story that almost every other fan out there in porno land is singing a different tune.

The facade of this genre of film has so many different gears it can kick itself into. It features so many different performers from those who strictly delve in it like Mistress Christina. It also features performers like Maci May and Roxie Rae who both wet their beaks a tad in the less extreme genres but like to make the kink scene, their main focus. Films that have been made through out time have featured the biggest stars in the world like Nina Hartley, Ashlee Renee, who coincidentally has made this her main focus. Ashley was known for years as the Playboy bunny who made the jump to adult films and created a very successful career from the transition. Now, she strictly indulges in the kink scene, showing her always unforgettable enthusiasm in a scene, just added with a little rope, leather and restraints.

Other stars in today’s world have made the jump as well. I have seen stars like Roxxy Bell Katy kiss get involved in some films with Jimmy Broadway and Dee Severe for Severe Society. It is not uncommon at all these days to see the stars you love indulging in the kink factor of the adult entertainment world and the further I researched this amazing subject, the more I learned how much it is loved by not just fans in the industry but many, many performers.

 

 

The history of the BDSM community can most likely have been seen for years before the term was even popularized by pop culture in 1991. For instance the Life and writings of The Marquis de Sade  a French aristocrat , De Sade is best known for his erotic works, which combined philosophical discourse with pornography, depicting sexual fantasies with an emphasis on violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic Church. He was a proponent of extreme freedom, unrestrained by morality, religion, or law. The words sadism and sadist are derived from his name.De Sade was incarcerated in various prisons and an insane asylum for about 32 years of his life: 11 years in Paris (10 of which were spent in the Bastille), a month in the Conciergerie, two years in a fortress, a year in Madelonnettes Convent, three years in Bicêtre Hospital, a year in Sainte-Pélagie Prison, and 12 years in the Charenton asylum. During the French Revolution he was an elected delegate to the National Convention. Many of his works were written in prison. Later in his childhood, de Sade was sent to the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris,  a Jesuit college, for four years. While at the school, he was tutored by Abbé Jacques-François Amblet, a priest. Later in life, the Abbé testified at one of de Sade’s trials, saying that de Sade had a “passionate temperament which made him eager in the pursuit of pleasure” but had a “good heart.”

 

At the Lycée Louis-le-Grand, he was subjected to “severe corporal punishment,” including “flagellation,” and he “spent the rest of his adult life obsessed with the violent act.

For many years, de Sade’s descendants regarded his life and work as a scandal to be suppressed. This did not change until the mid-twentieth century, when the Comte Xavier de Sade reclaimed the marquis title, long fallen into disuse, on his visiting cards, and took an interest in his ancestor’s writings. At that time, the “Divine Marquis” of legend was so unmentionable in his own family that Xavier de Sade only learned of him in the late 1940s when approached by a journalist. He subsequently discovered a store of de Sade’s papers in the family château at Condé-en-Brie, and worked with scholars for decades to enable their publication. His youngest son, the Marquis Thibault de Sade, has continued the collaboration.

The family have also claimed a trademark on the name.The family sold the Château de Condé in 1983.As well as the manuscripts they retain, others are held in universities and libraries. Many, however, were lost in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A substantial amount were destroyed after de Sade’s death at the instigation of his son, Donatien-Claude-Armand Scandals and imprisonment

De Sade lived a scandalous libertine existence and repeatedly procured young prostitutes as well as employees of both sexes in his castle in Lacoste. He was also accused of blasphemy, a serious offense at that time. His behavior included an affair with his wife’s sister, Anne-Prospère, who had come to live at the castle.

 

Beginning in 1763, de Sade lived mainly in or near Paris. Several prostitutes there complained about mistreatment by him and he was put under surveillance by the police, who made detailed reports of his activities. After several short imprisonments, which included a brief incarceration in the Château de Saumur (then a prison), he was exiled to his château at Lacoste in 1768.

The first major scandal occurred on Easter Sunday in 1768, in which de Sade procured the sexual services of a woman, Rose Keller, a widow-beggar who approached him for alms. He told her she could make money by working for him—she understood her work to be that of a housekeeper. At his chateau at Arcueil, de Sade ripped her clothes off, threw her on a divan and tied her by the four limbs. Then he whipped her, made various incisions on her body into which he poured hot wax, and then beat her. He repeated this process seven or eight times, when she finally escaped by climbing out of a second-floor window and running away. At this time, la Présidente, de Sade’s mother-in-law, obtained a lettre de cachet (a royal order of arrest and imprisonment, without stated cause or access to the courts) from the King, excluding de Sade from the jurisdiction of the courts. The lettre de cachet would later prove disastrous for the marquis.

In 1772, an episode in Marseille involved the non-lethal incapacitating of prostitutes with the supposed aphrodisiac Spanish fly and sodomy with Latour, his manservant. That year, the two men were sentenced to death in absentia for sodomy and the poisoning. They fled to Italy, de Sade taking his wife’s sister with him. De Sade and Latour were caught and imprisoned at the Fortress of Miolans in late 1772, but escaped four months later. De Sade later hid at Lacoste, where he rejoined his wife, who became an accomplice in his subsequent endeavors. He kept a group of young employees at Lacoste, most of whom complained about sexual mistreatment and quickly left his service. De Sade was forced to flee to Italy once again. It was during this time he wrote Voyage d’Italie. In 1776, he returned to Lacoste, again hired several servant girls, most of whom fled.

In 1777, the father of one of those employees went to Lacoste to claim his daughter, and attempted to shoot the Marquis at point-blank range, but the gun misfired. Later that year, de Sade was tricked into going to Paris to visit his supposedly ill mother, who in fact had recently died. He was arrested there and imprisoned in the Château de Vincennes. He successfully appealed his death sentence in 1778, but remained imprisoned under the lettre de cachet. He escaped but was soon recaptured. He resumed writing and met fellow prisoner Comte de Mirabeau, who also wrote erotic works. Despite this common interest, the two came to dislike each other intensely.

In 1784, Vincennes was closed, and de Sade was transferred to the Bastille. On 2 July 1789, he reportedly shouted out from his cell to the crowd outside, “They are killing the prisoners here!”, and a disturbance began to fomen. Two days later, he was transferred to the insane asylum at Charenton near Paris. The storming of the Bastille, a major event of the French Revolution, would occur a few days later on 14 July.He had been working on his magnum opus Les 120 Journées de Sodome (The 120 Days of Sodom). To his despair, he believed that the manuscript was destroyed in the storming of the Bastille, but he continued to write. In 1790, he was released from Charenton after the new National Constituent Assembly abolished the instrument of lettre de cachet. His wife obtained a divorce soon after.In 1801, Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the arrest of the anonymous author of Justine and Juliette.[8] De Sade was arrested at his publisher’s office and imprisoned without trial; first in the Sainte-Pélagie Prison and, following allegations that he had tried to seduce young fellow prisoners there, in the harsh Bicêtre Asylum

After intervention by his family, he was declared insane in 1803 and transferred once more to the asylum at Charenton. His ex-wife and children had agreed to pay his pension there. Constance was allowed to live with him at Charenton. The benign director of the institution, Abbé de Coulmier, allowed and encouraged him to stage several of his plays, with the inmates as actors, to be viewed by the Parisian public. Coulmier’s novel approaches to psychotherapy attracted much opposition. In 1809, new police orders put de Sade into solitary confinement and deprived him of pens and paper. In 1813, the government ordered Coulmier to suspend all theatrical performances. De Sade began a sexual relationship with 14-year-old Madeleine LeClerc, daughter of an employee at Charenton. This affair lasted some 4 years, until his death in 1814. He had left instructions in his will forbidding that his body be opened for any reason whatsoever, and that it remain untouched for 48 hours in the chamber in which he died, and then placed in a coffin and buried on his property located in Malmaison near Épernon. His skull was later removed from the grave for phrenological examination. His son had all his remaining unpublished manuscripts burned, including the immense multi-volume work Les Journées de Florbelle.

Then There is the case of Anton LaVey the founder of the Church of Satan . Anton LaVey LaVey established LaVeyan Satanism in the U.S. state of California through the founding of his Church of Satan on Walpurgisnacht of 1966, which he proclaimed to be “the Year One”, Anno Satanas—the first year of the “Age of Satan”.  His ideas were heavily influenced by the ideas and writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, Ayn Rand, and Carl Jung. The Church grew under LaVey’s leadership, with regional grottos being founded across the United States. A number of these seceded from the Church to form independent Satanic organizations during the early 1970s. In 1975, LaVey abolished the grotto system, after which Satanism became a far less organized movement, although remained greatly influenced by LaVey’s writings.

 

LaVeyan Satanism involves the practice of magic, which encompasses two distinct forms; greater and lesser magic. Greater magic is a form of ritual practice and is meant as psychodramatic catharsis to focus one’s emotional energy for a specific purpose. These rites are based on three major psycho-emotive themes, including compassion (love), destruction (hate), and sex (lust). Lesser magic is the practice of manipulation by means of applied psychology and glamour (or “wile and guile”) to bend an individual or situation to one’s will. LaVey defined magic as “the change in situations or events in accordance with one’s will, which would, using normally accepted methods, be unchangeable.” LaVey espoused the view that there was an objective reality to magic, and that it relied upon natural forces that were yet to be discovered by science.

Anton LaVey took a broader look at individual liberation, eschewing the bland compulsions he saw as oppressing many narrow followers of the sexual revolution.” The infamous Black House, LaVey’s San Francisco mansion, had previously functioned as a bordello in the 1800s and as a speakeasy during Prohibition. Now the site of debauches, fertility rites, and other public psychodramas during regular Friday night services, it became the epicenter of an explosive new outlook. At the beginning, the rituals functioned as cathartic blasphemies against Christianity-with elements such as the nude woman-as-altar in the traditional Black Mass, and even a specially staged Topless Witches’ review. Soon, though, he tired of simply mocking the feeble opposition, and LaVey’s chapel hosted brand-new and positively diabolical magical workings.

Modern Satanism may have been born in the era of free love, but the Church of Satan’s founder took a broader look at individual liberation, eschewing the bland compulsions he saw as oppressing many narrow followers of the sexual revolution. The new religion demanded that each person must determine what is most fulfilling to him or herself; this might be total asexuality, or, just as easily, voracious lust. A more important development by Satanic standards was the pursuit of personal fetishes. Fetishes were celebrated as the creative expression of a personal eros, and the “Black Pope” was years ahead of the masses in recognizing their influence: “The prevalence of deviant and/or fetishistic behavior,” LaVey wrote, “would stagger the imagination of the sexually naive.” In a time when millions were suddenly seeking sexual enlightenment, the CoS attracted many by its sheer audacity.

Satanism provided an avenue for folks who were beginning to explore their sexuality without guilt, and the Church’s position of encouraging individual fetishes, which at that time was ‘forbidden sex,’ provided a draw. But once they came on-board and discovered that it was up to them to do the exploration-we weren’t providing sexual partners for their intended explorations, and sex wasn’t emphasized beyond being a natural function-then they left to join organizations that focused on sex as their primary reason for being.” WHAT ABOUT S&M? ISN’T THAT A REQUIREMENT FOR SATANISTS? Anton LaVey made it very clear in his writings that all forms of human sexual expression between consenting, responsible adults is endorsed by Satanism. That can even mean asexuality—the avoidance of sex altogether. Masturbation is considered natural and healthy. Additionally, LaVey advocated the idea of exploring personal sexual fetishes as a means for erotic fulfillment. Especially after sexologists began issuing reports based on surveys, Dr. LaVey noted it is likely that everyone would be considered a deviant based on their personal means for gratification should they be compared with that of others. The S&M and B&D fetish practices at this point are well explored and can be easily researched if one is attracted to such experiences. But there is no requirement that any Satanist participate in B&D, S&M or any form of sexual activity that is not to his or her taste.

 

BDS&M in literature and film in 2011 a British author E. L. James self-published

the first instalment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism (BDSM). Originally self-published as an ebook and a print-on-demand, publishing rights were acquired by Vintage Books in March 2012.

Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world, selling over 125 million copies worldwide by June 2015. It has been translated into 52 languages, and set a record in the United Kingdom as the fastest-selling paperback of all time. Critical reception of the book, however, has tended towards the negative, with the quality of its prose generally seen as poor.

 

Universal Pictures and Focus Features produced a film adaptation, which was released on 13 February 2015  and also received generally unfavorable reviews. The second and third volumes of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, were published in 2012. Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, a version of Fifty Shades of Grey being told from Christian’s point of view, was published in June 2015.

 

BDS&M in other films  SECRETARY (2002) Before Christian there was Edward Grey. James Spader depicted a boss with unusual sexual tastes who hires a shy Lee Holloway (played by Maggie Gyllenhaal) as his secretary. Their relationship swiftly progresses from professional to pervy, ultimately proving that there someone for everyone. By the end of the film we realise how much they love one another and how perfect they are together. Highly lauded by critics, the film also brought BDSM into mainstream consciousness, inspiring many of us to give spanking a go.

9 1/2 WEEKS (1986) Once upon a time Mickey Rourke was a mega babe. This 80s film saw him play the mysterious (they are always mysterious) lover, John, of equally attractive Kim Basinger who plays a smart (at least she was until she met John) art gallery owner called Elizabeth. He draws her into his world, and she becomes addicted to his alternative sexual games. After he has sex with a prostitute in front of her she finally realises that the relationship is unhealthy (you think?) and leaves him, realising she never really knew anything about him. Though the plot and dialogue aren’t the best, the on-screen chemistry and sensuality of their sex scenes make this a truly memorable film. The famous food scene is particularly inspirational for those wanting to improve their bedroom shenanigans.

A DANGEROUS METHOD (2011) In David Cronenberg’s depiction of the beginnings of psychoanalysis, Michael Fassbender plays Carl Jung who begins a sexual relationship with a Russian patient, Sabina Spielrein (played by Keira Knightley), which opens his eyes to the alternative forms of sexual pleasure. Lots of spanking later we’re weirdly turned on, know a bit about the birth of psychoanalysis and wholly misinformed about the actual sex between Jung and Spielrein. Apparently they did have a relationship but didn’t get this kinky. Too bad.

 

 

Belle De Jour (1967) Frigid housewife Severine (played by Catherine Deneuve) turns to prostitution to get her rocks off. The film is full of sexually provocative scenes, with many of Severine’s fantasies and eventually her realities involving bondage and sadomasochism. A stylish, sensual but also very strange film

 

.The Night Porter (1974 )  Starring Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling, this film explores the unsettling relationship between an ex Nazi SS officer and a concentration camp survivor who meet by chance only to resume their sadomasochistic relationship. It received mixed reaction from critics, with Roger Ebert calling it, “a shallow exploitation of [the concentration camp experience], containing no real insight or understanding.” With a screwed up back story, the brutality of their encounters and the bizarre sub plot, The Night Porter makes 50 Shades look tame.

THE PIANO TEACHER (2001)A sexually repressed middle-aged piano professor begins an obsessive relationship with a 17-year-old student, begging him to fulfil her violent desires. When he finally does (spoiler alert) she realises that reality is not as sexy as she thought. Unsurprisingly it all ends pretty badly. The critically acclaimed film won awards for both main actors at Cannes.

THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY (2015) British director Peter Strickland’s poetic, unusual film explores the S&M relationship between two women and how the excitement of sadomasochism and its performative nature can wane over time in much the same way ‘regular’ (we use that term very loosely) sex can. It is a tender and incredibly beautiful meditation on the subject. Oh, and there’s some human toilet action. Natch.

THE STORY OF O (1975)   The 70s were a hotbed of films that chose S&M as their subject matter and The Story of O is a prime example. A young woman is taken to a country manor to initiate her into the world of sadomasochism. It’s all pretty graphic. Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013)

Nymphomaniac: Vol. II (2013) The second part of Lars Von Triers controversial (when aren’t they) film saw Jamie Bell getting as far away from Billy Elliot as possible playing K, the cold and dominant lover of Charlotte Gainsbourg’s nymphomaniac. Despite numerous, very physical, scenes together playing out a wide remit of S&M activities, the two actors reportedly didn’t speak at all to each other between takes. Which just goes to show that the actual job of being an actor can sometimes be a lot more fucked up than the scenes they are filming.

Bondage, BDS&M Domination have all been a part of are culture for centuries living in the shadows. Though it is becoming more and more mainstream and acceptable in today’s culture It is a safe assumption to say that most believed that only those of the transgender community, or those who loved to indulge in cross dressing and what society judges as “out of the norm” were the people indulging the kink aspect of sex and sexuality. Today’s world has shed a light to just prove that statement to be ever so false. Today, I have found not so uncommon to begin a relationship with a woman and come to find out she loves asphyxiation, or dominant role play. Yes, one of the woman I mention was actually a stay at home Mom, who use to not only be a teacher, she was a volunteer firefighter. True story. I have numerous friends in the industry who live by the pleasures of kink. One couple I know actually symbolize their affection for each other and their submissive roles that they wear chains around their necks instead of wedding rings, that is how much they love this indulgence.

I think so much can be credited to the BDSM community that most fans will never know. In our age where the sex workers of the this country seem to always be fighting a never ending stake against what they do. The BDSM community was firs labeled as a “perversion” by such great psychiatric minds as Sigmund Freud and  Heinreich Kaan. Even though these two are considered great scientific minds in the world of understanding the human mind and it’s emotions both were systemic in labeling BDSM something it was not. They gave reference to  Maquis De Sade, a 18th century author who showed a rather brutal side of a passion for pain and it’s practice with others in a very, very dark sense that was not mutual between the parties engaging in the act. As always with religion and science, they tried to bottle up kink into a one term definition. Richard von Krafft Ebing introduced the terms “sadism” and “masochism” to the medical community a little after dome of the first published works referenced BDSM as biblical references to deviation and aberration. As I have found out from the kink community, all of these labels are simply so far from the truth, it is ridiculous.

 

As the general public tends to see the kink community as the general “boogeymen” of the industry, there is something insight me that wonders how many of these critics indulge in these activities. Critics like Gail Dines, who year after year, preach about an injustice for the sex worker and how “filthy” and industry it is we all work in, when something deep down tells me, she is possibly the gal being tied up by her companion in a strappado, with a rope and spreader bar. I see whips, chains, ball gags, the whole nine yards. Contrary to what she would have you believe, this is not a bad thing, especially when it is making film that simply gives the masses what they want and what they demand from the companies they pay their hard earned money for. I think far too often, critics like to try and tie together the drug industry with the porn industry. It is that argument that the supply and demand can basically give anything a justification, when the truth of the porn world is that those who make these films indulge in the activities outside of work. Their films are made with other consensual parties. Their product is something that is used by many, may people in the world, being as how much Kink outsells almost all other forms of film. This is not some illegal venture like the drug trade were some czar who does not even do drugs, gets rich at the misery of others. No, kink is something that is wanted by those practicing. It is something that people have a passion for, even those who create the bondage material, the restraints, the apparatuses. This is a genre and life style so misunderstood I think we have to go to a performers view to continue our insight into the industry.
