The candor, wit and wisdom of such prominent, long-standing members of the BDSM community as Midori, Jay Wiseman, Janet Hardy and Cleo Dubois, help shatter some popular myths about BDSM practice and its practitioners, looking instead at the gifts of intimacy that lie within.

A funny and engaging visit with four outspoken pioneers of the girlcam frontier. Ducky Doolittle seduces her cyber-fans with a heady mix of fun and sexuality. Ana Voog uses her cam as a 24/7 performance art vehicle. Dionne Lowen quit her job selling cars to open an ethical porn site. And Teresa Senft, adding her notions of biography, privacy and micro-celebrity, declares that rather than 15 minutes of fame, in the future "everyone will be famous to 15 people." Preceded by Dick Ho: Asian Male Porn Star by Jeffrey Lei.
