Synopsis: A husband loves his attractive and prudish wife, so they go to sex therapist Dr. Gloria Leonard. Since the wife thinks a French kiss is disgusting kink, Dr. Gloria has her hands full. So the three of them watch kinky sex loops as inspirational training videos.
Kink-O-Rama is a loop carrier, a sub-genre of film which was used to recycle loops into features. They can be unobtrusive, with a newly filmed bit in-between each original loop. But this one is far more invasive. The loops are chopped to pieces and constantly interspersed between the equally decimated new footage with lots of reaction shots. Put a bunch of loops in a blender, and this is what you get – indigestible sludge.
Also included are 15 additional 8mm loops with kink as the common denominator. These are mostly concerned with kidnapping, captive love slaves, gang rapes, lots of bondage and S&M. Torture of the Slave Girl has some overreaching art house aspirations, and towards the end of the collection the themes veer to black bucks with captive white women. Guaranteed to offend everyone,
The most entertaining segment is identified as Drugged. A modish dude has landed in nirvana as a groovy babe takes him home to her bedroom. But, this foxy chick has an agenda of her own as she slips him a Mickey in his drink. Next thing he knows he is butt naked and strapped to the bed with a bad case of reverse date rape. She gags him to ensure they don’t alarm the neighbors, then strips and starts to give him a little oral attention. But that’s not hot enough, so she gets a box knife and indicates she might castrate him. Instead she just cuts some ventilation slots in his stomach and thighs. Now, the gore effects here don’t meet H.G. Lewis standards. But this does have the same subversive and sleazy but fun vibe found in his best pictures such as 2000 Maniacs. This short approaches the sublime – and is the only major aspect of this production worth watching multiple times.
Of course, the full screen presentation is all over the place due to the various conditions of the 8mm sources. The feature itself is pretty beat, if it matters. Some of the shorts, including Drugged, look pretty good while others like Torture of the Slave Girl is approaching pitiful, with the color being severely washed out.
Was the basement of the gun shop in Pulp Fiction your favorite part? If you want lots of bondage gear, kidnapping, captive love slaves, and un-erotic sex then this is your cup of urine. For anyone else, the Drugged loop is recommended as a gem in the rough. But the way she uses her teeth; that guy couldn’t possibly walk straight for two weeks. Is it my turn, yet?
