Critical Rating: AAA
Stock according to how well this line does for you.
The inconsistent Torment 16 opens with Mistress Tara showing C.J. Bennett how to top Michele Raven. The scene has all the heat of a S/M 101 class.
But at least it's not as unintentionally funny as what follows: pretend Mistress Miko Lee's turn with Gia Regency. Don't get us wrong: the statuesque Lee certainly looks the luscious part of a mean-ass Dragon Lady garbed in revealing harness and thigh-high boots. But her flogging technique is so atrocious (she apparently thinks that wrapping is the point) that she makes the notoriously technique-challenged Rebecca Lord look positively masterly in comparison. Torment all right. Torment to watch.
Lee's raps, meanwhile, aren't any better than her wraps. "I'm training you," she snarls at Regency at one point. "Training you how to obey your Master." Uh, don't you mean Mistress, honey?
Speaking of Lord, the RedBoard stalwart can be unintentionally funny herself when, as in the closer (and practically every other scene she does), she barks indignantly in her thick French accent at the bumbling stupidity of Annika.
But the svelte beauty also provides Torment 16 with its only genuine moments of intensity as she gets medieval on the sub girl, flogging her tits and slapping her face - hard - heaping on the verbal abuse and degrading her further by making her stick her head in a trash can and later stand in it. Watching someone that gorgeous and narcissistic being that bitchy to an inferior is a real perverse turn-on.
