Before SEX AND THE CITY made designer Patricia Field a household name, she outfitted the downtown divas of New York like Mistresses Carrie, Ava and Sonya Blaze, three New York City professional dominatrixes featured in WHIPPED. WHIPPED is a sly, intimate look inside the dungeons, beach homes and real lives of these women filmed over four years. Featuring New York in all its pre-9/11 decadence and glory, WHIPPED is a “relationship movie” from that era that takes it audience on a journey to the borderlands between flamboyant public performance and the elusive realm of private fantasy.

Knowing people in The Scene, I found Whipped to be a straightforward and un-sensationalized look at the lives of the dominas it features. That said, I suppose it's appropriate it left me wanting more. I felt like there was much more I'd like to know, this documentary being an appetizer that still leaves one hungry. But I do appreciate these women sharing bits of their lives and views with us.
