So I’m assuming (perhaps erroneously) that many of us have seen the film Secretary (2002), in which a quirky attorney with a penchant for dominating, spanking, and tending to his orchids hires a slightly unbalanced secretary who is slowly but surely discovering her true submissive self. It’s any D/s lover’s dream!!! If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend this film. Both James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal turn in inspired performances and give the subject matter the gravity it deserves, avoiding the overly camp, while still keeping the film light.
While thinking about this overtly D/s-themed movie, it made me think of “vanilla” movies I’ve seen that have D/s or BDSM themes. Truth be told, when I was a teenager, any movie that showed somebody – man or woman - tied up and ready to be tortured would be enough to throw my clit into a tizzy!
Here are just a few of the vanilla movies I can think of that got my blood a-boilin’ when I was young and had no way of getting my hands on legitimate D/s smut. It was before the age of Internet porn and before I knew that there was a word for what I was feeling…
• The Princess Bride
• Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
• Flash Gordon
• Goldfinger and Thunderball (Way to go, Connery! You made it on the list twice!)
• American Ninja 3 (No, I’m not joking.)
I would love to hear what some of your favorite “vanilla” movies are…those special flicks that are hiding little D/s or BDSM gems! ☺
