This Year’s BDSM Valentine: ‘Darker Side of Desire Vol. 2’

A bed of rose petals, a heart-shaped box of chocolates, candlelit dinners, sensual mood music . . . such are the traditional trappings of a romantic Valentine’s Day. Admit it, though! Your thoughts are mostly on one of the day’s saucier activities: hot, intense sex! Whether you’ve got a partner or not, Sweet Sinner‘s Darker Side Of Desire Vol. 2 is here to be your Valentine. (It’s streamable now on Adult Empire, in advance of the movie’s DVD release!)

It’s the latest in director Jacky St. James’s exploration of BDSM, a journey that began in her Emma Marx series and continues in this sequel to her 2017 movie Darker Side of Desire. Gia Paige, a supporting player in the original movie, is promoted to lead status, providing a performance that anchors the story. Like Penny Pax in the Marx movies, Paige finds herself in a love/hate relationship with her own kinky desires. What starts out as a master’s thesis on BDSM subculture turns into a daring sexual adventure, complete with call-backs to Paige’s own checkered past.

“There is nothing sexier than sharing a new fetish or fantasy with a partner and getting to experience it,” said St. James in an AVN press release. “This is exactly what happens in Darker Side of Desire 2, a film that really is a perfect Valentine’s Day Gift to add a little spice in the bedroom.” She also praised Paige’s performance. “Gia Paige, returning from the first installment, is unmatched in a girl struggling to come to terms with her sexuality, and finding a group of empowered women to help her get there.”

Volume 2 adds to the intrigue considerably by bringing in vet Steve Holmes, whose mature but handsome look perfectly matches the experienced quasi-academic he plays here. Paige’s scene in the first installment of Darker Side of Desire scored an AVN nomination, and it’s not hard to imagine some of the sequences in part two duplicating the feat. Like most of St. James’s BDSM movies, Desire is able to take things much further than relatively tame entertainment like the 50 Shades of Grey movies ever could. We say skip the chocolates and watch Darker Side of Desire 2 instead! Stream it today!
