The place where sex and technology blend together perfectly.

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.

I met Peter back in 1999 soon after he had relocated from New York to San Francisco. At that time he was running a company by the name of Cybernet Entertainment, which operated just a few adult bondage sites: Fucking Machines and Hogtied. He greeted me in a room of programmers, artists, technicians, and editors. There were blue and yellow wires hanging from the celling and servers stacked on desks. Empty cans of Red Bull filled the wire mesh trashcans and the dull humming sound of computers filled the large brick room. Their offices on Mission Street showed all the signs of your typical Silicon Valley start up, with the exception of the bondage chains and floggers hanging from the server rack. We met in a small corner office, which he shared with a co-worker, and conducted our meeting behind a portable desk that he had unfolded just for the occasion.

Over a double-shot of espresso, he shared with me his believes on business and his vision for creating an environment based on teamwork, creativity, and efficiency. Today that vision has turned to reality and Kink.com has become one of the largest and most well respected adult companies in the world. Peter has not only been an inspiration to myself, but to the adult industry as a whole. I was both honored and humbled to interview Peter for the book The Unsexpected Story and hope you have a chance to read more about this influencial individual. There was a great story done on Peter Acworth by The New York Times Magazine titled A Disciplined Business.
