movies featuring dom/sub play (not porn) - any suggestions?Page 1 of 1    
looking for some recommendations here - i've been told about 'the secretary,' 'the image.'

again, no porn titles, please. looking for films in which D/s is part of the action, not the whole action. mainstream enough to be rented at blockbuster and the like.

many thanks!

9 1/2 Weeks jumps to mind.
Might not offer the detail you seek, though.

Maybe Mr. and Mrs. Smith- Angelina Jolie kinda has the look. Not 100% certain though.

Being a sub and having been in a few D/s relationships, I have to say that I've never viewed 'The Secretary" as a D/s movie. Sure, it had the kink aspect of her getting spanked and cuffed and whatnot. But there was so much more to the whole story; like her need to hurt herself (i.e. burning her thigh) to release her anger or frustration, and his desire to exercise and control his life down to the last letter. I didn't view it as a movie about her submission to him, or his domination over her. But, clearly others see it differentialy. :)

As for other good D/s movies not in the porn genre; that's a toughie. You can rent The Story of O in any Blockbuster and it's not considered porn. It's not a bad movie, just not really great.

I haven't watched any of the others that were described, perhaps I will have to ask the one I'm currently slipping into a relationship with if he would rent them and we could watch together. :)

Pitch Blease has a good list:
Euro Trip is one of my favorite movies. It's a spoof, sort of, and is hysterically funny, especially the scenes in the "dungeon".
The Story of O - there are a couple of versions out there - skip the movies and read the book together first.
Boxing Helena is interesting but ultimately not as good as it could be, IMO.
Maitresse has some pretty interesting scenes, though I never understood why Depardieu was supposed to be sexy.
The Night Porter is probably my favorite - disturbing, and very hot.
Rocky Horror Picture Show is like Eurotrip, just for fun.
Exit to Eden really did suck, but the floggers used in the movie are truly professional works of art.
Bound with Gina Gershon is popular with those who enjoy watching 2 women together (I don't, but hey, whatever floats your boat)
The Pet came out last year - not sure if it's widely available nor what quality it might be - I saw the trailer and it looked somewhat exploitative of the "scene".

I still enjoy watching Secretary, and once went to a Halloween party dressed as Lee with the spreader bar (my BF at the time went as Mr. Grey). And yes, I could serve the coffee just like she did!

Always thought Gina Gershon was hot, and she seems to have a knack for picking up intriguing roles in a land where she is not a first=tier power or headliner, who normally command the parts they will play. She did some other movie with Mel Tilly, where the two women conspire to undo the male, and while I am not especially stimulated by the sexual byplay between two women, that movie certainly held my attention, and I am not a fan of that particular blonde.
D/s is not a strong interest of mine, OP, as my initial recommendation suggests. Strong cinematic roles for women are more compelling, as they are more rare (e.g., The Reader).

The Secretary, starring James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

It is technically a dark comedy, but trust me, it's a D/s delight.

The Night Porter is a very dark, very hot movie. Considering Dirk Bogarde was gay, it was even more extraordinary...
I loved Secretary and definitely did view it as an exploration of a type of master/sub relationship.
I don't see 9 1/2 weeks as part of that genre, though..

Makes me wanna go rent a movie!
I think these types of movies are more interesting - tantalizing and a huge turn on - above and beyond what pornos have to offer!
Thanks for reminding me about them!

The Secretary was good but I also saw it as more than a d/s type relationship... perhaps it was more D for him, but for her it was more like her need to be punished. to hurt herself... It basically elevated the D/S to something twisted. (that's not quite the word I"m looking for bu tcan't think of the word... like unhealthy though, like only a sick person would get off on it). DYSFUNCTIONAl. that's it... it made it like she was dysfunctional and that's why she liked it. And I dont' find D/S relationshisp to be limited to those ppl who are dysfunctional. A little D/S can be quite the turn on occasionally It hink.

Two Moon Junction is a fav movie of mine and there is def some D/S going on... Not porn, but very sexy. TOtally awesome. W/sherilyn Fenn and Burl Ives (no he's not the one having sex w/sherilyn fenn)

Someone mentioned blue "orchade" and i think the person meant Blue Orchid. I dont' remember the details of the movie but I did see it years ago and figured you might need the correct spelling.

What about Tie me Up Tie Me Down w/antonio banderas when he was younger? In another language w/subtitles. I can't remember the details of it offhand...well basically he gets out of prisona nd kidnaps an actress he's crushing on and keeps her tied up... Pretty good movie.

Wikipedia actually has a good list of D/S in movies, books, shows etc. I haven't seen any of them, so you'd have to check them out yourself.

You know, I was thinking about kaylie's and stenoslave's comments re Secretary. I think it was definitely BDSM - and the explanation as to why she was into it was relevant to her story. And I'm sure would resonate with quite a few women, unfortunately. I would have been interested to discover James Slader's journey as well.
And The Night Porter is ultimate dom/slave stuff, complete with Nazi uniforms. And it's an amazing story with two amazing actors...I've loved that film for 20 years.

Watched the first couple seasons of Californication w/ Duchovny, in the second season the topic is explored. It's done well and shows how it isn't everyone cup of tea and some of it was hilarious.
