Nina Hartley's Guide to Erotic Bondage - Fun, but not quite what I was looking for

I found that while the attempted sexy talk was very distracting from taking the DVD seriously, the sex scenes were quite good, if predictable for the most part.
Published:

Nina's Guide to Erotic Bondage
with Carmen Luvana, Nina Hartley, Randy Spears, Tommy Gunn.

I was happy to find Nina Hartley's Guide to Erotic Bondage as I have seen Nina Hartley's Guide to Female Ejaculation and was quite impressed. The Guide to Female Ejaculation was very educational and sexy at the same time. Unfortunately Nina Hartley's Guide to Erotic Bondage fell a bit flat.

The DVD starts with Nina and Carmen sitting around the set discussing erotic bondage. They go through various do’s and dont's, and set up how to conduct bondage in a safe and consentual manner, which is all very necessary information to have before you started doing bondage play. Unfortunately, this educational piece is marred the heavily scripted interaction of Nina and Carmen. Carmen clearly had a hard time remembering her lines and sadly the producers seemed to have elected to not re-shoot this extended scene. The attempt at sexy banter between the two was quite ridiculous and detracted from the useful information that might be gleaned from the discussion. One refreshing aspect was to see Nina being the dominant over a male submissive.

The DVD then moves into two extended erotic bondage scenes, one with Nina and Randy Spears and one with Carmen and Tommy Gunn. These two scenes were fine enough on their own, but I was hoping for something more than simply regular sex with a partner who was loosely tied down. There are many more sexy aspects to bondage that would turn me on that were not addressed, like predicament bondage, light SM, tight/heavy bondage. Perhaps it is because I am too technically minded, but I was hoping that Nina might show us much more of the actual bondage, more like tips and tricks for tying up a partner, how to create the erotic sensation of feeling the rope tighten, etc. I guess I was expecting more of a how to from which I could glean erotic ideas for myself.

The DVD extras were not bad. This included two more bonus light bondage scenes, of which Bonus Scene 2 seemed to me to be a fun threesome that seemed better than the main features. Perhaps the best part of the video for me was a fun “Behind the Scenes” blurb with Nina just talking about whatever seems to pop into her mind and wandering the set talking to others about various sexy things. Another bonus on the DVD was the slide show of stills from the movie, many of which were sexier than the full motion. The quality of the movie and the sets seemed to be well above average for videos in general.

Now I find I am curious to contrast the Guide to Erotic Bondage to Nina's Guide to Bondage Sex.
