Secret Needs is a softcore sex film with a strong element of "exchange of
power," or bondage.
Nicholas Yff is less than pleased with his wife (Erin Marie),
who not only nags him in a nasal voice, but doesn't even want sex with the
lights on. Their best friends (Collin Toran and Heidi France) think they see a
spark in her. Nicholas is off to the hardware store to buy a washer for one of
his numerous Saturday "honeydos" and stares at a shapely pedestrian's butt. He
rear-ends a car, and out jumps Lisa Comshaw, complaining about her bruised ass.
Rather than exchange insurance information, she asks for a cappuccino, and gives
him her card.
Later that night, he gets curious and calls. She tells him to hurry down. He
has no idea what to expect, but she is a dominatrix in a fully equipped play
room. He rather quickly becomes smitten, especially given his cold fish of a wife,
but she will only have sex at his place. Things come to a head when their
friends talk them into a little game of swaparound. Erin Marie has a fabulous
time, but Nicholas Yff is not thrilled. Even after a three way with Comshaw and
Tomi Luutsford, he decides to give Comshaw up and make things work with his wife,
soon learns that he has far less control over his life than he thought.
Lisa Comshaw has real
screen presence, but Erin Marie's nasal voice was enough to make me hate her. The
film itself is long on nudity and sex and short on plot and character
development. If you like a little kink in your life, this one is worth
considering. The sex is hot, the bondage is lite but effective, and there is no
shortage of nudity and simulated sex.
