Movie Info

The vast world of sexual fetishes gets a non-judgmental look with this independently produced documentary. Beyond Vanilla analyzes the history of various kinks and fetishes from the points-of-view of sex experts, porn stars, and the average folks who choose to indulge in them. Arranged in sections, fetish by fetish, Beyond Vanilla starts with sadomasochism and bondage, working its way through more taboo topics such as piercing, electric shock, and blood play.

The sexual arena is where all sorts of issues get worked out, sure, but, sexuality is far more nuanced and complicated than can be contained in a few identity boxes or capsulized by physical practices.

The cheerful how-to aspect ('cut and file your nails!') adds to the sense that the whole thing seems to have drifted in from some late-night infomercial netherland.

The film is unquestionably educational: If nothing else, one comes away with a certain respect for the dedication true kinkiness demands.
