Kink is a 2013 American documentary, produced by James Franco about the BDSM website[2][3][4]

Early production[edit]

While filming scenes of About Cherry at the San Francisco Armory, Franco noticed the dynamic between actors and the production crew. He stated that this interested him, as in some respects, it was a similar dynamic to that of the production at Saturday Night Live. It was this that led to Franco developing an interest in this aspect of the BDSM culture. After coaxing director Christina Voros to an interview at the Armory, she agreed to do the film.[5] The other reported influence for Franco's decision to make this documentary, was an unsuccessful sex tape, with his girlfriend.[6]

People featured/appearing[edit]


The movie received positive reviews from The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.[7][8]
