There’s probably a way to cut a work-safe trailer for kink (the lower-case “k” is intentional) but that would be so boring. Not that this first trailer is all that explicit, but the film is a documentary about the filmmakers at fringe and BDSM porn site Kink.com. Or are they smut peddlers? Or experimenters in human interaction? The doc might answer some of these questions.

The trailer paints most of Kink’s employees and contract performers as regular ol’ folks who just happen to get paid making films that feature whips and ball gags. And that’s a good start for the subject, since that’s the case for the bulk of the people who enjoy the website’s content, too. I don’t know how much depth (er…) director Christina Voros and producer James Franco manage to capture in the film, but I’m hoping for the best.

kink premieres this Saturday at midnight at the Sundance Film Festival. I’m hoping to catch the film within the week, and we’ll have a report when possible.

Director Christina Voros and producer James Franco pull back the curtain on the fetish empire of Kink.com, the Internet’s largest producer of BDSM content. In a particularly obscure corner of an industry that operates largely out of public view, Kink.com’s directors and models strive for authenticity. In an enterprise often known for exploitative practices, Kink.com upholds an ironclad set of values to foster an environment that is safe, sane, and consensual. They aim to demystify the BDSM lifestyle, and to serve as an example and an educational resource for the BDSM community. In kink, we discover not only a fascinating and often misunderstood subculture, but also, in a career far from the mainstream, a group of intelligent, charismatic, and driven people who really, truly love what they do.
