g+

 

Watching a good movie most always goes like getting under the skin of its characters, closer to the storage of their feelings and emotions. This experience gives a chance to first-hand determination of what is BDSM, helps define submissive and dominant roles by virtually becoming a part of the situation.

We’ve selected a group of films that develop around BDSM-playing and made a list of BDSM-kinks. A catalogue that may bring new colors to one’s individual palette of fantasies and turn-ons. It is a kind of virtual journey that introduces new details to your kink-list even in case you’ve never had anything of BDSM in it before.

Read more about them in the article Sources of BDSM culture: Dominant and Submissive Definition in Books.

Secretary

BDSM-games players are: Lee, the secretary, and her boss, Edward Grey.

One of the film most sexual scenes starts from Lee’s spending three days sitting motionless on the chair in Grey’s office. On her accord and with confidence that proves her eagerness to serve at the pleasure of the boss.

This act and the scene in general dispels the stereotype that represents a sub as a wishy-washy, weak-willed creature who yields to someone stronger. Only one who’s confident in their desires and goals is able to show oneself in a bad light to friends, foes and the family for the sake of getting what they want.

In fact, enjoying the role of a sub is difficult for those who lack self-confidence and self-esteem. Otherwise there shall always be a doubt nagging somewhere at the back of the mind and querying: is this my genuine and good desire, or am I just a lapdog?

The list of the Secretary BDSM-kinks includes:

  • assigning tasks;
  • fulfilling tasks;
  • punishing for misdeeds;
  • provoking a sadist;
  • showing no initiative unless permitted.

The Night Porter

The game goes between the dominant—an ex-Nazi SS officer, and a Jewish female sub.

The standard image of a dominants fades away the moment you see how Maximilian dresses, coddles, protects and admires his submissive. We thus definitely understand that she had managed to survive the concentration camp only owing to her top.

The SS officer’ dominance is intimately associated with deification of his sub.

He worships her. So that humiliation and pain that he causes seem to be a gift to her.

At a first glance the film may look cruel and in a way absurd. But this is just an example of 24/7 BDSM-relationships.

The list of The Night Porter movie BDSM-kinks includes:

  • the sub is looking for trouble and runs into it;
  • the sub is being worshipped;
  • walking on broken glass;
  • the sub is chained at home for the whole day;  
  • dancing naked for dominant’s friends;
  • depriving the sub from contacts with the outer world;
  • understanding desires of the sub and fulfilling them.

Bitter Moon

A crazy goddess and a defeated admirer in the film that represents failed BDSM-relationships. An example of BDSM actions that kindle no fire. Just because the dominant has yielded his role.

People are prone to boasting, but not every man tells about his woman aimed at promoting her to a new friend. The way the protagonist of “No honey moon” – this is what the film title actually implies – tells about his passion to and his fear of his beloved woman makes it hard to understand whether he brags or complains. But what’s obvious about him is that he cannot get the guts to give her to another man. It goes quite the opposite: he surrenders to her thus depriving both the film characters and the audience from any chance for excitement and arousal.

9 1/2 Weeks

The players are: Elisabeth as the toy, John as the experienced player.

Mickey Rourke discloses the specifics of his character’s BDSM-kink by leaving Elizabeth alone at his apartment. Of course she could not but do some minor examination. What an amazing provocation! A brilliant and at the same time simple trick to have the sub involved in your game. Now she is truly guilty!

Taking care of partner’s growth is a common BDSM-game that dominant loves to play. It teaches them a forward-thinking approach, empathic attitude and strategic thinking. A dominant needs to learn getting into the spirit and action of another person, forecast their further conduct and understand what a sub may experience. With sub’s every next step and emotion getting predictable, they become an easy part of the game played by the dominant’s rules.

The list of other 9 1/2 Weeks BDSM-kinks includes:

  • torturing by suspense;
  • causing embarrassment;
  • coddling the sub;
  • giving easy and complex tasks;
  • provoking an action;
  • woman crossdressing into man.

Belle De Jour

Masochist Séverine and her fantasies.

Our emerging dreams often allude to our unfulfilled fantasies. This is what happened to a well-heeled Séverine, the part acted by Catherine Deneuve. She loves, and she is loved. As the film dawns, she sees a dream, a journey in that stud-grooms whip her by the order of her husband. While at the end of the film, after she has ventured fulfilling her own kinky-voyage, the carriage from her dream drives on empty, as a symbol of the fantasy that’s been lived out.

It is a director’s way to prompt that our fantasies develop and grow along with us provided that we act them out. They may even outstrip our capabilities. Otherwise fantasies would not have been so exciting. In general, the film comes as an arousing incentive to live one’s kinks out.

The movie gives a vivid representation of the troubles, up to fatal issue, that can be caused by mistrust, lack of sincerity and mismatch within a couple. Séverine was looking for pain and humiliation, but she did not dare sharing her fantasies with the husband and went working in a brothel. She fulfilled her kink but jeopardized the couple and denied it the opportunity of saturating it with the fantasy mutual acting out.

The list of Belle De Jour BDSM-kinks also includes:

  • whips;
  • dressing in compliance with dominant’s desire;
  • secret double life.
