These videos, from noted "cultural anthropologist" and photographer Charles Gatewood, deal with a small underground element of society known as "modern primitives," who like to engage in what could be called "unusual body practices." Tattoos and piercings account for only a small portion of this subculture. W&S/B's firts segment deals with a cute, pixie-ish woman who gets whipped, then shaved of all traces of her pubes. Relatively tame. The next segment, however, is something that retailers may want to take a look at before stocking, as it entails a trio of gals enjoying an extensive three-way bloodletting.
EBR will cause those who faint at the sight of blood to do just that. The beautiful, buxom blonde in the opener makes creative use of, among other things, razor blades and barbed wire. The second segment takes place in a small studio, as one woman makes an exotic cutting of a Celtic bird symbol on another woman's back, before inserting feather-topped needles as "wings."
Retailers, if you have a niche clientele that fits this description, stock with careful confidence. Mesmerizing and shocking, these video are not for everyone.
