Secret Needs


by Tuna

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, but he 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.


Our Grade:

If you are not familiar with our grading system, you need to read the explanation, because the grading is not linear. For example, by our definition, a C is solid and a C+ is a VERY good movie. There are very few Bs and As. Based on our descriptive system, this film is a:


This is a competent "couples erotica" film. You will enjoy it if you buy/rent these for the sex and nudity alone. If you expect a real plot and developed characters with your nudity, it is not for you.


  • Erin Marie, Tomi Luutsford, Lisa Comshaw and Heidi France all show everything, and it seems like Lisa Comshaw is naked for most of the film. I see that as a good thing.
