Date of Release: February 7, 2018
Extras: N/A to online advance screener
Audio/Video Quality: Excellently captured and presented visuals. The audio suffered a bit from a lack of compression in the advance online screener I viewed, it may be different on DVD. The lack of compression means lots of volume control adjustments to hearing whispered dialog vs. the moments when a paddle or flog smacks skin, or when the ladies start shrieking. I easily solved it by adding compression in my review environment but I don't think the average viewer will be able to duplicate my efforts easily.
Overview: Sydney has left the kink lifestyle behind and longs for the feelings she has missed out on by dating "vanilla guys". That longing leads to her deciding to write her Master's thesis on the kink lifestyle. Her research leads her to interview people that are still in the lifestyle and hearing their various stories. She notices differences and commonalities amongst each of the stories and duly notes them down. Her research leads her right back to where she started seemingly so long ago...back to the life of a submissive.
Scene 1: Katrina Jade & Toni Ribas
Gia interviews Katrina about her role as a slave, which Jade clarifies is different than a submissive. There are no safe words, boundaries, or choices when you are a slave. Katrina describes her first sexual experience as a slave. Locked in a cage for hours, alone as her master leaves the house for the day. The thrill of hearing and seeing him walk back in the door, releasing her from her confinement and walking her like a dog to the living room.
Clad in black lingerie, she sits on Toni's lap so he can feel the wetness between her legs before removing her bra to reveal her ample bosom, her nipple piercings glinting in the light. Holding our starlet's hair, Ribas rapidly flogs her ass and then fingers her. Katrina holds her leash in her teeth and her legs open wide for Toni's tongue lashes and flog strikes. Ribas stands and pulls Jade by her leash, her mouth landing on his pole. Katrina has one of the best mouths in the business, from a viewer's standpoint, and shows off her oral skills, this BJ being a bit less drooly than many of the others we have seen her perform.

With a body built for sin, she climbs onto Toni's turgid pecker and rides like the wind. Toni manhandles his way above her and pounds into her as he presses her into the couch. Keep your volume handy as Jade gets loud as Toni jams her with the force of a speeding locomotive, screaming "oh put it back" when he accidentally slips out. Well, she has no control here, so that doesn't happen at her request. She gets an ass slap and is set up in doggie for his pleasure. Her eyes are big and bright, catching the light well as she looks back at him while he bangs away. Her all natural breasts flop around as her master fucks her with abandon. Her pierced pussy gleams as she grinds in reverse cowgirl. Lying backward onto Toni, She's conscious about not digging her stilettos into his legs. Ribas moves back to a standing drilling, tossing her legs apart for the camera, sweat running down his head and chest. He uses her bang box for his own delight, allowing his juices to run freely down her baldness and having her clean him with her tongue.
With performers of this caliber, it's almost impossible to not get a great scene. The only problem with this scene is Toni's voice is so soft compared to Jade's moans and screams.
Scene 2: Giselle Palmer & Tyler Knight
Giselle's story centers around how she got into the BDSM lifestyle and became a freak herself. She was expecting a fabulous gift from her man and he gave her a cat costume. She was appalled at first, even after he explained his desire for some roleplaying. He gave up on the concept and slunk away, dejected. Once the idea sunk into her head, she figured she might as well at least try it. With the sexy kitty costume on, she crawls across a table, sneaking up behind him and lapping at a bowl of milk on the floor. Knight's face lights up as he realizes he has a new pet and he can teach her tricks like pulling at a string on her costume to reveal her D-cups.
Tyler is quickly doing some lapping of his own, in between the legs of 2018 XBIZ and AVN nominee for Best New Starlet. Her legs and breasts quiver as his fingers join the party down below. Her eyes widen and her hips buck as he enjoy's his kitty's kitty. Tyler nabbed a couple of acting nominations at the awards shows this year, and he plays his part well here as he has his kitty rub on him and enjoy a nice weiner snack and scratch. Palmer shows off her big booty in a cowgirl romp and her pretty kitty eyes in doggie. The pair goes at it, grunting consistently, their faces showing enjoyment. Tyler enjoys a bit more of his box lunch before taking a final dip in his kitty that leads to a puddle on her patch.
Scene 3: Aidra Fox & Steve Holmes
Aidra's tale centers around pleasing her man and enjoying a few specialty kink tools along the way. Steve is a man who expects perfection from his submissive and when he finds dust in her cell she must suffer the consequences, counting off each strike of a heavy flog across her ass, the brick walls bouncing each bang around the room. Wearing a chest harness and panties, she is forced to kneel as Holmes drizzles hot wax on her knees and tongue.
Hands shackled to her cell bars, a Hitachi is held between her legs, flog marks visible on the cheeks of her ass. Steve snickers as he makes his captive cum and reaches for a violet wand with a comb electrode. She shivers as he runs its times across her back and booty. Steve unshackles his sub and has her remove her panties and sit on a stool, her crotch conveniently located for him to smack with his hand before he makes her kneel for a manhood meal. He has his little whore hold her ass open so he can see his entry point as he takes her from behind. Pulling out of her, he brings back both the Hitachi and the Violet wand, employing them as he pumps back into her. Her shrieks echo around the walls as Holmes slaps at her tits. She is silenced as he sits on the stool, using his necktie to hold her head down as she mouths his cock. Her face looks almost triumphant as she stands basking in the light of the cell and then getting laid back for Steve's snacking enjoyment. She tugs him sensually as he removes her shoe for some sole slapping and toe sucking. They stare into each other's eyes as he renters her, holding the Hitachi to her clit and then finger-flicking the lips of her lady parts. A final tit-slapping stuffing gets him ready for blast off and he has her kneel to coat her chest with his seed.

Scene 4: Gia Paige & Steve Holmes
Gia's final bit of "research" is to interview Holmes but he sees right through her charade, knowing that she's excited to be in this position. He leaves the room, returning with a wireless vibrator he can control from anywhere, commanding her to put it in her panties right now and leave returning 24 hours later if she's really interested. She complies and over the next day, her excitement grows with each remote orgasm she is given. Right on time, she shows back up at his place and gets tied to the bed, blindfolded with a necktie.
Her breathing pattern intensifies as Steve employs some flogging, paddling, and vibing on various parts of her body. Removing her blindfold, he knows he's made a deep connection with his new contract girl. They kiss softly and he paddles her tongue with a little leather paddle. He rubs it underneath her panties, sniffing it and then having her lick it. He bites at an exposed, erect nipple, exploring her tight body with his fingers and then paddling her ass. Once it is warmed from the paddling, he kisses it and then moves his lips to her feet. That's when he discovers she is ticklish and exploits that. She's panting as he rubs at her pantied crotch, more so when he licks it. Unbinding her, he has her stand on the bed and spread her ass cheeks and then kneel to bob. She gets her throat stuffed with Steve's stick and then he places it inside her now uncovered coochie. After he bangs her for a bit, he wants to see if she can fuck or if she can just get fucked and she shows off her rodeo skills. She gives him a good romping and then tucks into a 69, her lips resting on his balls. Steve decides to take it up a notch and has her ass in the air, squatting above her in a reverse piledriving. They move to the edge of the bed for some missionary banging that causes him to unload on his new sub's snatch. She utters a "thank you" and he blindfolds her and walks away.
Final Thoughts: Sweet Sinner and Jacky St. James are back with a tangential follow-up to the first installment of this series. In this episode, Gia Paige takes the lead role rather than Cassidy Klein. That makes sense if you are familiar with the first one but the storyline here sets it up so you get the gist even if you aren't. It is basically 4 separate BDSM tales that are all tied together by a common thread, Gia's thesis research. Normally, I don't discuss plot details in movies like this but here I felt it was fine due to there not being some sort of twist ending that you weren't supposed to see coming. Each story is self-contained.
Jacky has put together an A-list lineup of starlets and cockstars here, nobody is relegated to playing second fiddle. Everyone does a standout job with their roles and the sexual antics are on point. Now, stop. This is a BDSM film after all. Sure, there's sex but the physicality in each scene is only half of it. Behind the whips and chains, there must be a psychological component involved in such play and that is presented well here. Like I said in my review of the first movie in this series, this is not dungeon porn with all the high tech rigging and brutal torture implements but some of the scenes do utilize some fairly advanced play equipment and techniques. Steve Holmes and Aidra Fox's scene is a prime example of this where they are using simple things like hot wax but in fairly advanced ways and employing high voltage electric play using toys designed specifically for this purpose. I think couples will enjoy this movie and the stars in it. I liked it more than the first one. Highly Recommended.
Keep in mind that scenes like that wax/electric scene aren't two people experimenting with BDSM for the first time. If that kind of thing makes you tingle when you watch it and you aren't familiar with the tools and techniques used, I suggest you head down to your local well-equipped adult store rather than jumping online to grab some candles and that "shocky comb thing". If you go during a slow time of day for them, they will be glad to show you the specially designed candles used for play like that and then demonstrate the violet wands and their assorted accoutrements which can be very interesting in a solo demonstration and an absolute hoot if there's a group of people wanting to check them out! I was kind of surprised to see them in this movie but I'm glad they made an appearance!
