Director: Jim Gunn
Cast: Sydnee Steele, Kerry Downs, Tawny Lyons, Lee, Ernest Greene, and Nick Long
Initial Expectations: I enjoy a bondage video every now and then, and the big names in this one have me really looking forward to it.
Initial Reaction: It varies from scene to scene, but is a nice light bondage feature.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody curious about bondage features
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants heavy bondage
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is okay, but a bit weak. The dialogue is pretty clear, but thereís a fair amount of background noise and some obvious dubbing. The video has a bit of grain and frequent soft focus problems.
False Advertising: Kitana Steele, Paul Cox, Mila, Melissa Money, Morgan Navarro, Phylisha Anne, Kyle Stone, Randi Rose, Nakita Ka$h, Pat Myne, and Shelbee Myne are listed on the cover, but donít appear in the feature.
Menus: The main menu is very different, and shows the video cover spinning around over some green good while the choices for the DVD sit alongside it. Itís not an impressive main menu. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a nice sized picture of the scene.
The Feature: Sydnee Steele finds herself in Ernest Greeneís bar in Sins of the Flesh. Sheís curious about the bondage lifestyle, and finds out that heís very into the lifestyle. He tells her a bit about the lifestyle and people who come into the bar who are also into the lifestyle before giving her a little demonstration.
Kerry Downs, a cute and natural blonde, finds a bit more than she expected from dirty old man Nick Long when she stops him in an alley for a light and to hopefully pick him up as a customer. She soon finds herself restrained and gets spanked, slapped, whipped, and bound and gagged. She struggles and resists quite a bit while showing few signs of pleasure before sheís left tied to a ladder. Itís an okay scene, but fairly degrading, which turned me off pretty well.
Lee and Tawny Lyons explore the B&D lifestyle a bit next. Unlike the previous scene, thereís plenty of enjoyment here. Thereís a lot of smiling and itís pretty obvious the girls both really enjoy themselves throughout the scene. Tawny starts out spanking Leeís ass until itís good and pink and then gives her nipples a bit of attention and a bit of icy action. Itís a great scene thatís a lot of fun and should work very well to try and introduce a few people gently to bondage and spanking.
Finally, Sydnee Steele gets a taste of the lifestyle herself. Ernest gives her a few accessories and has her strip down before introducing her to a bit more leather and spanking. Afterwards he introduces her to an electrical toy and nipple clamps and weights before finally allowing her to come. This is a great scene and one that should really impress those who would be nervous about picking up a feature like this. Ernest does a great job of keeping things simple and very friendly, while Sydnee looks to be obviously enjoying herself. This is a winner of a scene that really brings the feature up.
Sins of the Flesh is a surprisingly good bondage feature for those who are curious. The opening scene is a bit rough and might turn many off, but the rest of the feature is very well done. The remaining scenes show some great enjoyment and exploration while also being nicely informative. Due to this, I think those who are more experienced with bondage wonít enjoy this one nearly as much as those who are curious or new to it. Thereís a lot of open enjoyment here from both sides that seems to be very rare in bondage features, as well as a simplicity as if itís meant to be just an introduction. Since Iím still fairly new to bondage stuff, I really enjoyed Sins of the Flesh and look forward to seeing much more from Jim Gunn like this.
Extras: Phone sex and internet information.
Themes: Straight, S&M, spanking, lesbian, fetishwear, and toys
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Currently, most of Pleasureís DVDs can be found online for between about $10 and $22 with most stores offering them towards the higher end. If youíre interested about bondage but not sure where to start, Iíd say this one is well worth the money, but those experienced with bondage might be a little bored with it. Sadly, as is usual with bondage features the technical aspects are weak and thereís no extras.
Note to Pleasure: A bit more attention to the technical aspects would be great. It would be nice to see a bondage feature where the technical aspects werenít lacking badly.
