Director-cinematographer Christina Voros and her frequent collaborator, Oscar nominee James Franco (As I Lay Dying, Child of God), pull back the curtain on the fetish empire of Kink.com, the Internet's largest producer of BDSM content. Voros and producer Franco go behind the scenes at the San Francisco studios of Kink.com and introduce us to those who work in front of and behind the camera, in the process delivering a "fascinating profile" (The New York Times) of an often feared and misunderstood industry.
In a particularly obscure corner of a business that operates largely out of public view, Kink.com's directors and "models" strive for authenticity. In an enterprise often known for exploitive practices, Kink.com upholds an ironclad set of values to foster an environment that is safe, sane and consensual, even as the bondage-and-discipline and sadomasochistic activities depicted seem to stretch the definition of "pleasure." The people at Kink.com aim to demystify the BDSM lifestyle and to serve as an example and an educational resource for the BDSM community.
In KINK, we discover not only a fascinating subculture, but also, in a world far from the mainstream, a group of intelligent, charismatic and driven people who really, truly love what they do.
