Where do you draw the line between passion and perverse? This October WM Adult explores what happens behind the closed curtains of suburbia, or deep in the woods after dark. Extreme or timid? Love or fetish? Only you can decide, and we’re serving up seven nights of films that will open your eyes to new ideas of sensuality.
Australian premiere films include the backseat voyeurism of Dogging: A Love Story, murder-mystery and deviant sexuality in Meat, Australian actresses depicting a sex worker in Black & White & Sex, the pleasure and pain of Donkey Punch and the film that asks the question ‚ÄúCan sex save the world?‚Äù – F*ck For Forrest.
