It would be a shame not to stock House of Shame deep in your specialty and Evil Angel sections.
Bland food, spicy kink. That pretty much sums up the Brits, as presented here by fetish-meets-hardcore head mistress Tanya Hyde, the AVN Award-winning director (Pirate/Private USA's Hell, Whores and High Heels, Best Foreign Vignette Title of 2000) who is the industry's standard-bearer when it cums to this sort of fare.
House of Shame is a sprawling mansion inhabited by gorgeous, latex-encased women taking pipe throughout their plumbing, most especially that in the rear. All five vignettes are framed in high BDSM style, alternating between color and black and white, and feature a female voiceover that is equal parts cheeky and decadent.
While a few of the scenes feel as if visual technique takes precedence over the sex, thankfully, more times than not, that's not the case. Heat-wise, the best sequences are the girl/girl/girl "Catfight" and the two concluding group gropes, "The Lesson," in which Alicia Rhodes teaches her students a thing or two about cock, cunt and ass worship, and "Abduction Seduction," in which a cat burglar gets force fed pussy, then squirts on two blindfold-wearing felines. Meow.
The difference between London fetish scene vet Hyde and pretenders to her throne is that she has her BDSM stuff down cold while they're, for the most part, mere dilettantes. And does it ever show.
