Welcome to the June edition of CinéKink, Montreal’s kinky film and discussion series! This is the last film of our 2006-2007 season… we’ll be back in the fall!
What? “Beyond Vanilla”
Directed by Claes Lilja, 2004
Film synopsis: Much as the title suggests, Beyond Vanilla explores the kinkier aspects of sex on the other side of vanilla. With interviews, demonstrations and a good dose of how-to instructions, this documentary covers the gamut of fetishes and SM practices. From bondage, flogging and fisting to knife play, fire and golden showers, director Claes Lilja (pronounced class lil-yah) takes you on an unforgettable journey to the wilder side of sex. Sharing fantasies, experiences and pleasures, the over 100 people interviewed in the film help blur boundaries and shed new light on sexuality and sexual practices. For the curious, the voyeur, or the enthusiast, this is a fascinating journey into the world of high performance sexual athletes, where the boundaries of gay, straight, bi or transgender seem almost irrelevant. The subjects are academics, doctors, lawyers, pornographers, porn stars, sex workers and fulfilled, freelance hedonists who offer an insider’s view of how to embrace extreme fantasies. Open your mind and the rest will follow. More info at http://www.beyondvanilla.net/BVWebFeb04_files/page0001.htm
