A must-have for any instructional section.
Expect the best from Nina Hartley, in terms of both informative content and hot sex, and you won’t be disappointed. This veteran star even manages to enliven the talking-heads portion of this video by nuzzling and caressing slavegirl Amber Michaels, sitting at her feet in a ponygirl harness.
Hartley briefly discusses definitions of sensual domination, dismisses the myths, and touches on limits, consent, and trust, without getting too technical. Instead of insisting on safewords, for example, she suggests to her male partner that he say, "Stop! Ouch! Please Ma’am no!" or something similar of the sort, and she’ll take the hint. She recommends lots of praise and reward as motivators, and strongly emphasizes fun, fantasy, and dress-up. And then, it’s off to the dungeon.
Hartley’s submissive partner is Chris Cannon, a handsome collegiate type. Hartley shows up dressed for the occasion in black lingerie and no panties, pointing out that "you don’t need to look like a dominatrix to dominate a man." When she whips his chest with a soft leather whip, she de-emphasizes the gear, encouraging her students to try silk, fur, or anything else to create skin sensation.
Cannon engages in lots of body worship, concentrating on Hartley’s shapely legs and famous ass. Hartley stops and starts, rubbing her butt against his cock, making him touch himself while she watches, tonguing his cock and then backing off again, all the while throwing informative asides to the camera. This entire scene may just be a contender for Best Tease. Cannon is completely under her sway by the time they get down to the fucking, which is flat-out great, with Hartley’s orgasm capping the show.
Michaels and Frank Fortuna are then recruited to show how this domination stuff might work between a real-life couple. In their bedroom, Michaels dresses up in a sexy latex outfit and waits for Fortuna to come home from work. She asks him to polish up her black bustier and panties. Soon, Fortuna is blindfolded and standing at the foot of the canopied bed; Michaels attaches a leash to him and makes him lick her pussy. The scene culminates with Michaels pinning Fortuna to the floor and taking his cock up her ass for a totally animalistic finale.
The two scenes make a nice contrast, since the first is in a pro dungeon space and the second, in a realistic (if sumptuous) bedroom. Great production values are on display here too, from the lighting to the camerawork to the delicious sets. A definite pre-nom for Best Specialty Tape — Bondage & S/M.
