      Audience Member Recommended to me by a colleague, and upon viewing was surprised I'd not previously seen it. An instant favourite, wholly deserving its label as a cult classic. The story focusses on a young, Christian conservative, Peter, who is desperate for a job to start a path into government. He is tasked with infiltrating the House of Thwax, the home of notorious American fetishist Tanya Cheex, in order to find incriminating evidence to stop Tanya's influence from growing. Humorous and kinky twists unfold in a strong story with an even stronger investigation is fetishism and its cultural meanings/misconceptions. Would recommend to anyone, for either a bit of fun or a serious look at sexual liberation. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome cult film .. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was GENIUS, especially in a time before "Hot Topic" and "50 shades" BDSM hit the world! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member An absolutely superb British film. Fantastic story line with a cast of high end stars. Also a good laugh, especially at the prudeness. I recommend anyone who wants to see 50 Shades of Gray to watch THIS first. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie illustrates the hypocrisy that a discriminated subculture has to deal with to this day. The only movie I know of that bears any relation to the real fetish scene and also achieves this with dry British humour. Far superior to the 50 shades of stalking movie. If you watch it with a slightly open mind and liberal attitude you will enjoy it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member An exceptional film, only eclipsed by its fan Base.
