Documentary filmmaker Cristine Richey examines the meaning of sadomasochism through the centuries. From the Middle Ages to Marquis de Sade; from the repressive Victorian Age, when parents provided their adolescent children with chastity belts, to novelist Leopold von Sacher Masoch,
who took delight in getting a good spanking.
