Those exploitation cinema producers had much larger budget and they failed in most cases, because either they did not have large enough budget to pay a talented actress for that role or (and) the effects of the welts were pathetic.(Mostly red crossing lines which should have depicted bloody welts). There are some customers who are interested only in the real thing.LOLThe Maleficarum and Dead But Dreaming whipping scenes are more erotic to me, than that of the just posted "12 Years a Slave" whipping scene because those whipping mutilated wounds are far too real and horrible looking for me find erotic. Fetish artist de Mullotto has reportedly died a few days ago. BILL K: Some men look at hands and say "why duct tape them"? RICK: Great news about the potential for new productions this year. He was a true trailblazer of GIMP art, building on the early work of pioneers like John Willie and Eric Stanton to raise the bar of female peril to a whole new level.

Now had they suspended her or pulled her taut spread eagle facing out between 2 poles it would be hot. Alas, but we all know that mainstream films do this on purpose. de Mullotto passes away: That's sad news, although not exactly a big surprise, since I had heard rumors of his failing health for a few years.

He was quite an artist; I just took a look back at my de Mullotto folder again.

I have nothing against Pedro or Mood Pictures, but I would be more inclined to buy their wares if the videos focused more on fantasy and less on reality.

To further illustrate my point, how many of us could enjoy Lupita Nyong'o's whipping in So, I just wanted to throw my 2 cents on the comments about Mood Pictures with real tortures vs. I've watched quite a few Mood Pictures scenes and only really enjoyed one and that whipping looked very real and very consensual.

Lupita is first forcefully stripped naked and tied to the whipping post ... If the film-makers can achieve the same thing by faking the whipping/caning, I personally would find that more erotic (especially with a lot of sweat and tears in the mix).

Which suggests that perhaps they cannot achieve the same effect because the actresses cannot act like they are being abused..must really feel it in order to register the appropriate response.

The woman was lean, toned, pulled taut in an inverted Y.

The scene flattered her form and accentuated her sexual traits and helplessness.

Fetish artist de Mullotto has reportedly died a few days ago... I never communicated with the man but I sure knew his work from his many book covers and later from bits I saw on the web. It seemed each of his heroines suffered in a manner unique to her and her alone.

I certainly took note of his foray into 3D, though his real strength seemed physical media. He was certainly a notable talent in the field and clearly searched for that "edge" many of us so like. The man's creativity was astounding and he will be sorely missed. There are some customers who are interested only in the real thing. Now that it has – and from Pedro himself – I will state that personally I find this “answer” somewhat worrisome.

Like our fellow GIMP contributor Blakemore, de Mullotto pushed the envelope, sometimes further than he should have. de Mullatto went far beyond the standard perils depicted by most artists.
