Starting with heel worship, specifically stiletto and boot heels, Kendo's originating fetish branches out toward the obvious conclusions: heavy anal clad in leather, latex, corsets and lacy stockings and camisoles. None of these textures dominate any one of the five scorching scenes, but rather are inter-cut for contrast. Kendo constructs his fantasies of women fantasizing as much for their aesthetic appeal as for their erotic action. The blending and intersecting of light and shadow, color and sepia-tones, textures of walls and furniture all add to the senses of a world imbued with art and kink.
Estelle walks into a bare, shadowy warehouse floor, lit softly with an artist's brushstroke. She strikes poised dance poses as she contemplates a long leather heel. Soon the blouse is delicately opened. Men appear in similar poses, and her fantasy takes off. She is transformed to a leather bottom, taking cocks in her holes as she's ridden in a sling, harnessed leather boys pumping away. And somehow, it never gets sleazy.
Lolly Badcock and Poppy Morgan alternate between slowly exploring each others bodies through a picture frame, and aggressively pumping flaming red dildos almost violently into each others asses and snatches. It is lust personified, lust condemned and spouting its last righteous cry. Then there is Keira Farrell, seen first in a smart black suit on black leather couch in a stark white room, who, with the help of two men wearing blank white masks, becomes a dominatrix striking poses, the editing cutting quickly as a camera's click is heard. Before one imagines a segment too arty for its own good, it's not soon before the clothes are shed and the sweat is running in rivulets.
The most sensuously interesting is the fiveway slamfest of a closer, starting off resembling the better early Nine Inch Nails video work with it's sepia tones, tattered antique furniture and hints of the velvet underground. But it's an effect, like those preceding, that Kendo never allows to get worked to death. Each segment has its own unique look and wonderful music by Jimmy Jans and Spice Factory, so one never tires of the ambiance.
