Day Ten

HEIM UND HERD (internal screening)
Musicvideo by german band Uebermutter
that provokes by pleasing the uniform-fetish.
This video is not new but fits to the festival because of rolereversal and powerexchange.
The mortal end demonstrates that femdom isn't sane.

Musicvideo by Greta Schmidt
The music is groovy, the Ladies are dominant. They are from famous studio Avalon in Berlin.
Femdom clip is ok.

Blonde German Dominatrix Syonera von Styx
uses her beauty and authority
in the relationship to her slave. Film has only one location and one camera.
From a distance we see how he worships and serves her, in return she punishes and humiliates him. This goes into a extreme direction which is not for the taste of everybody.

Musicvideo by Paolo Ferrarini. Art-film about the dreams and gay desires of a priest. Only in dreams people can move without the boundaries of gravity.

Complex art-film by Sebastiano Montresor and Luca Acito.
Inspired by novels of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (Heritage of Cain, Venus in Furs) the audience dives into a deep studio where different people interact. It has something of theatre. The actors perform exzessively and explore the psychological abyss. A negative portrayal of SM and sort of a warning like THE PET and DANIELLE'S PRISONER. But no matter how you interprete this disturbing work of art, you will be impressed.

created by Matthew Saliba from Montreal, Canada.
The silent shortfilm with music starts with a vision of a cuckoldry-relationship that seems to be in harmony. Would be interesting to watch a whole film dedicated to cuckoldry in that way. But Saliba interrupts and starts with another couple that is visited by a young man (later a young woman is there too). The married pair doesn't seem to be really happy and is seeking fulfillment also with persons outside their longtime relationship. An independentfilm that has ideas and impressions for a long feature film.

Directed by Romulus, produced by ROMAN VIDEO. "Cuckold Fantasies" is a series that guarantess quality. Eleven DVDs were already released through the last years, some were nominated for AVN-Awards. HARMONY'S FIRST AFFAIR is the ninth edition.
Mistress Harmony knows what she wants and her submissive husband follows her. Harmony is wearing black lingerie (her handcuffed hubby shouldn't wear socks). This film demonstrates the psychology, the bizarre beauty and the masochistic joys of the cuckold-situation (which can be called real altruistic love).
Harmony enjoys the real body of Frank Towers. While he loves her physically, Freddy loves her emotionally - and she sends all her verbal humiliation to Freddy. This may seem unfriendly, but on another level this is the most friendly way to communicate with the submissive aspect of his personality.

Cuckoldry was already mentioned in Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's novel "Venus in Furs" (Wanda and the greek Man). Although without leather and whips this is about domination and true devotion. The film was chosen for the festival's competition because of the permanent verbal (and physical) S&M-aspect - by the the way there is also nudity, much nudity, all the time. This film leaves nothing for imagination, film shows openly everything and that's good.
In real life couples get in danger, if one partner seeks joy elsewhere: HARMONY'S FIRST AFFAIR is not hidden, she does it in front of husband's eyes and in the the end we get the impression, that this will go on with different lovers forever.

Black Friday

SNOWDOMINATION (internal screening)
Produced by russian company Young Goddess that has a focus on femdom with adult-ladies age 19 - 22 years. The women speak in russian language and there are subtitles in english. During filming they also do the photos which is acousticly disturbing.

Irina performs as the cruel dominatrix-lady who uses the naked man as a pony, she commands him, whips him. It's winter-time and this is an outdoor-scenario. If you have a heart, you feel uncomfortable in watching this. Does he want it that way? There is no statement, no negotiation, no dialogue at the beginning or the end. So this isn't complex, it's simple: just domme and slave.
But scenario has fascination because she is so bitchy and provocative.
Positive: This shortfilm from the web has a real title and actors' names mentioned before film starts.
Negative: webadress is always on top right on picture.
Maybe it's consensual (another website men in pain manages to always make clear at the end, that they both loved to act that way and that they still like each other), but this isn't sane.


Femdom clips that are exciting. Language german without english subtitles. Goddess Anja makes a strong impression. The submissive man makes everything she demands so you get (implicit) the impression that this is consensual wanted activity. The action ist soft and strict and good. Example for a new webculture.

Beautiful women vs. ugly men. Someone in the audience said, that this wasn't erotic and that the concept isn't convincing because the men are stronger. But hey, this is a dream!

German Mistress specialiced on doing professional riding-training for male subs aka ponies.
Technical standard is low, but fans get an authentic insight in the games ponyplayers do.


An impressive and provocative work of dark art.
Nearly without dialogue these extreme
session-scenes combined with a good score were outstanding.

A discovery - awarded as best picture of the year
@ Fetisch Film Festival

This MTV-inspired film shows how many kinky people meet each year at Toronto Fetish Weekend. BBAA2 may be called 'a documentary' but it's more an advertisement for a model and her crew who celebrate themselves.

Lost in fetish

DANIELLE'S PRISONER directed by Christian Pfleger
Reminded my of LA CAGE (1975), LA GABBIA (1985), COMBAT DE FAUVES (1997), SON DE MAR (2001) and BOY IN A BATHTUB (2006). Mediocre film of first time director Pfleger unfortunately mixes up consensual and criminal behaviour.

In DANIELLE'S PRISONER both characters are captured by each other: The polygamous man is kept and learns to concentrate on one woman; Danielle is obsessed by the romantic idea to live with her ex-lover and learns to get independent.

Michael Salewskis march through history provided the audience with interesting infos about powerful women in history and about the change of social roles. Lecture was introduced by FEMALE SUPREMACY a youtube-film by Veronica Vinyl remembering mighty ladies of the past. Closing shortfilm was PROPERTY OF THE QUEEN by Gudrun Herrbold about czech dominatrix-community The Other World Kingdom (OWK), a beautiful shot and provoking work about a femdom-utopia that already exists in fantasies and expensive DVDs.

Production company Club Stiletto is working in the area of female domination. They host several websites, Riding women is one of them. Here you can see clips of ladies riding on men.
Beautiful women on strong men that are called slaves and ordered around. Some more erotic, some less. Good!

Directed by Steve Arguilo

Company & website Exotic Tales focuses on the (humiliation by) feminisation.
This film is 78 minutes long and provides you with long scenes.
HAILEY MAKES THE BOY BRIDE has full titles (which are identically repeated after the film). The character's names are the first names of the actors Hailey Young, Louisa Lanewood and Benzo Blackwell.
Louisa will marry Benzo. She is a bi-sexual stripper, he is a christian and denies sex before marriage. Hailey is their catalyst. She questions Louisa's belief in marriage, says that with her past and character she isn't made for marriage and will sex with him be as good as with her - Hailey is in love and hot for Louisa. When Benzo celebrates his bachelor night he is confrontated with a stripper in police-uniform and he is too drunk to see that her name is Hailey. In a playful/forceful act he has to describe his deepest fantasies - "to be dressed in women's clothes and treated like a bitch". She slaps him unconscious, carries him to the bedroom and starts changing his clothes when Louisa comes in and - after a moment of confusion and argument - helps dressing him as a woman.
Exciting and provoking, but film has only 40% of the scenes pictured on the website!


Shortfilm directed by Steven Speliotis
Sensitive film without dialogues, nearly a videoclip with music expressing harmony and black&white-impressions of a session in New York inside a building. Film begins outside in colour and then their play is shown on another visual level. Steven Speliotis is her sub wearing a white mask, later he changes to the top spanking her.
When did you last time saw persons in bdsm-movie-scenes switching positions? Good are rare.

Elizabeth Elson directed this documentary about ponyplayers in the USA. A warm-hearted portrait of the subculture and especially about Ponyman Trigger. He is lonely. Together some players build a stable in the countryside. My impression was that hey do it for themselves but also for Trigger. Touching. At the end there is a playful and hot scene with him.
These people have found what they were looking for.

The beauty & power of Trash-Queen Carmen Rivera who already is into femdom for years and some kind of dominatrix-sexsymbol in Germany.
The camera adores her and that's the perspective (POV) of a man who shall work in the office but can't take his eyes off of her. She get's angry and starts dominating him. In the second half of this film he is already enslaved by her. He wants her attention but she get's angry again and punishes him in a special way.
