Audiovisual quality: Throughout the scenes, the camera lens is carefully focused and aimed at the subject of interest. Important details such as clamp placement are always easy to see. The lighting is just right—neither too much nor too little. The locations (a bedroom, living room, and dungeon playroom) are pleasantly quiet, so there's no difficulty hearing or understanding the dialog. Ernest and Ilsa's discussion segments appear to have been taped at a different time—the technical quality is lower, but still adequate.
Ratings note: Fetish FAQ is an instructional series which contains very little conventional sex, so the standard ratings for "Sex" and "Plot" don't quite fit. I've reinterpreted these categories as "Enthusiasm" and "Educational Value" respectively. In these aspects, this movie is exceptional.
Highlights: During the five-minute prelude, Ernest and Ilsa emphasize the importance of communication and negotiation in BDSM play. They address the need for a safe word/signal. Ernest and Ilsa then introduce the particular pleasures and concerns of nipple and breast play, with their points nicely illustrated by four scenes.
Scene 1 Chloe with Ernest Chloe asks Ernest to help accentuate her A-cup breasts with bondage. He gives her some friendly kisses and caresses, and then ties pretty blue rope into a simple yet effective body harness. They talk about the changes in sensitivity which accompany the monthly cycle. Ernest applies pleasant stimulation to Chloe's breasts with a flogger and vibrator. He flanks the nipples with clothespins (the plastic type with minimal bite), followed by two types of adjustable weighted clamps. Time: 17:25. Rating: 5 stars.
Scene 2 Jack with Ilsa Strix Ilsa uses different hand techniques on Jack's chest and nipples, including squeezing, tugging, rolling, slapping, scratching, and flicking. She dribbles hot wax on him and removes it with a rubber scrub glove. Ilsa cools Jack's flushed skin with ice. Time: 12:06. Rating: 4 stars.
Scene 3 Alex Foxe with Ernest Ernest chains Alex's wrists to her ankles, all the better to stimulate her. He uses four different suction devices on her breasts: a common venom extractor, two styles of vinyl suction cups, and cupping cylinders from traditional Chinese medicine. Ernest mixes in light flogging and pussy rubbing, and Alex orgasms with a vibrator. Time: 12:57. Rating: 5 stars.
Scene 4 Deva Station and Male Partner The guy fondles Deva under her cute black mini-dress. She smiles coyly while he buckles her wrists into overhead bondage. He places pink clothespins on her areolae, exciting her with kisses and pussy rubbing. The guy adds a few white clothespins to Deva's breasts and teases them with a brush-tipped crop. He pleasures her with a vibrator. He wraps up with a little challenge called a "zipper"—a row of clothespins attached to her breast and pulled off by a string. Time: 13:12. Rating: 5 stars.
Thumbs up: The instructions are very clear. For example, Ernest specifies an upper time limit of ten minutes for nipple clamps, and Ilsa shows how to test the bite of a clothespin on the skin between the thumb and forefinger. All of the breasts appear to be natural in this movie, which is really nice, although it did make me curious about whether augmented or reconstructed breasts might need extra care. That was the only question I had, however, which Ernest and Ilsa did not address. They've done a fine job covering the basics.
Thumbs down: The action ends a little abruptly in scenes two and four. The end credits are sloppy, too—Alex Foxe is listed as "Lisa Fox," two extraneous names appear, and Ernest receives no performing credit at all (although Ilsa does).
Themes: Instructional, BDSM, bondage (breasts, full body), nipple play, pressure play (clothespins, nipple clamps, suction toys), temperature play (hot wax, ice), flogging, cropping, vibrator, kissing, undressing, fetishwear.
Condom use: None needed (no penetrative sex).
Juice-o-meter Medium-high. Yes, this nifty educational disc turned on my brain, genitals, and boobies all at the same time!
Final analysis: Fetish FAQ 2 is a friendly and effective introduction to the wonderful world of nipple and breast play, plus a few other kinky toys and techniques. It's good news for your boobs!
