Inside San Francisco's historic Armory building, a video director named Maitrese Madeline is running down a list of the day's video shoot. "We are going to tie you up today. We are going to spank you. We are going to flog you. We might cane you. We might paddle you.... We're going to make love to your butthole, too." Welcome to the offices of Kink.com, the world's most popular BDSM website. Founded in a Columbia University dorm room by Peter Acworth in 1997, the site has grown into a fetish empire, anchored by a 200,000-square-foot film studio where production never stops. If porn were a high school lunchroom, this would be the goth table, a tight-knit family of outsiders fostering an environment that is safe, sane, and consensual. Executive Producer James Franco—whose equally explicit film Interior. Leather Bar. is also featured in this year's festival—and director Christina Voros plunge deep inside this sweaty but sweet world for an uncensored look at the whip-smart fetish lovers behind the scenes. They eloquently discuss the stigmas and misconceptions surrounding their work for a revealing look at those who take pride in their work causing pain for pleasure.
