Last Saturday, the Sundance Film Festival took a delightful bruising when it debuted Christina Voros’ (127 Hours, The Broken Tower) documentary, Kink.  This film explores the daily ins and outs of premiere BDSM porn studio Kink.com, a subject that Kink’s producer, James Franco (Spider-man, Pineapple Express), found fascinating while touring the 200,000 square foot San Francisco studio during a shoot for another project, About Cherry.

Founded in 1997 by Columbia University alumni Peter Acworth, Kink.com is the alternative pornography site, its wide umbrella encompassing sites such as FuckingMachines.com, Hogtied.com, and PublicDisgrace.com as well as hitting the alternative gay male demographic with MenOnEdge.com and BoundGods.com.

Acworth has devoted his adult life to bringing alternative pornography to the mainstream, not just to fill an already established need, but to help educate those still exploring their sexuality.  Constantly expanding and exploring new directions, the Kink.com brand he created is an excellent representative of the alternative adult industry not only due to its longevity and integrity, but also due to its vision and sense of community.

Bringing the talents of Franco and Voros together to create a film about such an industry giant might finally allow the rest of the world to banish their illusions of not just the alternative porn community, but the adult industry in general.  We have high hopes that this film, as well as the two other adult industry-related films showing at Sundance, Leatherbar and Lovelace, will topple some of the longstanding walls between mainstream viewers and filmmakers and the adult industry.

Gerardo Damiano

In 1972, an adult film was released that rocked the country: Deep Throat.  Written, directed, and produced by filmmaker Gerard Damiano, Deep Throat was one of the first hardcore films to reach the general public, premiering in theaters across the country, and grossing an estimated six million dollars. It was a film that changed the face of modern porn forever.

Reputedly written for its female star, Linda Lovelace, Deep Throat tells the story of a young girl who has an unidentified medical condition where she finds the act of oral sex more satisfying than regular intercourse.  The film, shot in six days, spent years being dragged through the court system, being banned, unbanned, and rebanned due to charges of obscenity and gained even more notoriety when its title was used as the code name by the Washington Post for William Mark Felt, Sr., a deep-background source during the Watergate scandal.

Damiano, who passed away due to complications from stroke 2008, originally ran a hair salon in his native New York.  Listening to his patrons gossip, he became convinced that adult films needed to expand their target audience from the male demographic into that of couples.  Through an introduction to a low-budget horror film producer, Damiano began to help on set, learning the ropes of movie making before launching into his own project, the infamous Deep Throat.

After Deep Throat’s success, Damiano moved on to direct other films, creating classics like The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), The Story of Joanna (1975), and Night Hunter (1983) among others, for a total of forty-seven movies before his retirement in 1994.
