Three Other BDSM Themed Works You Don’t Know About

 

At the outset, let us warn you. BDSM is illegal in India. That doesn’t mean that BDSM doesn’t exist in India. But because of the very clear and present danger of being thrown into prison for just practising BDSM, even a whiff of exposure sends the tens and hundreds of BDSMers in India running underground. BDSM is the shortform for Bondage, Dominance, Sensualism and Masochism. Yes, you have seen all these four things in different avatars in Bollywood time and again, but they have never been too blatant. The last time we saw strains of BDSM was in Raagini MMS, in the infamous ‘too soon and handcuff’ scene. Let us consider how illegal and hidden BDSM is in India. Remember Article 377? Well, the article talks about unnatural sex. BDSM is fraught with unnatural intercourse. Do you see any man or woman wearing a leash or a dominatrix outfit at any of the LGBT parades? Well, that’s how hidden the BDSM community is in India.  However, mainstream cinema has had a smattering of BDSM themed screenplays,and here are three of them:

The Story of O:

The Story of O was highly controversial for it’s time. In fact, if the movie had released today, it’d be banned outright. We can be certain that the movie never found a public release in India, and given today’s politically correct times, it will never be found at your favourite movie store, so don’t go searching for it. Like all good things in life, the movie was based on a book. If you have liked The Secretary and have enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, you should procure The Story of O.

Warning: The movie has a storyline that would make feminists froth at their mouths, and the movie maker has not neutered the concept of BDSM with consensual sexual intercourse.

The Secretary:

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s piece of work before she became a household name with The Dark Knight. The Secretary, back then, was termed as a comedy and a romance and we couldn’t help but hide our smirks beneath our calloused fingers. This movie at least got a release in India, but of course, it was heavily censored and was never played to its full essence in theatres.

 Gor

Gor. The three letters that would make the entire BDSM community sit up and take notice. One of the most controversial books – or set of books – ever written, Gor is a fictional planet, away from Earth, where er… lets say the Roman and Grecian times never ended, People who follow ‘Gor’, known as ‘Goreans’ are quite embedded in the population. Almost every chatsite, whether it was from the nineties or today, had a huge Gorean following. Even today, 3D chats have big Gorean populations,
