This genial, East Coast bondage and discipline video features some unconventional-looking talent and a novel setting - the speakeasies, brothels and underground bars of prohibition-era New York. Whether that's enough of a draw to interest your kinkier customers depends on their sensibilities.
The acting, sets and plot of Pain and Prohibition are only occasionally laughable (which, in this sort of period porn piece, is a definite achievement), and some of the flappers on display here are smoking hot. Everyone seems really immersed in the setting and action, giving the video an appealing, aren't-we're-having-a-blast vibe, as opposed to the all-business tone of too much San Fernando Valley product. The girls are all dressed period appropriate, and the way-old-school dresses and lingerie are a nice change from standard stripper wear. The girls are all of the alternative type too rarely seen in porn. Action highlights include a Gothy looking brunette suspended with a rope from the ceiling being beaten with a bouquet of roses and two slaves hogtied together being slapped with riding crops by dual mistresses.
The downside here: Some of the action is a little weak, so hardcore players won't be as interested as newbies looking to learn a little more about the scene. Another potential market: Couples looking for a non-threatening introduction to fetish videos.
