By the time I had heard of San Francisco’s Kink.com empire, they were already famous because their Fucking Machines had been featured on HBO’s show “Real Sex”. Word was definitely getting around, and I had to check them out.
Then at the end of 2006, Kink.com bought the old armory in SF, turning it into a a 200,000 square foot pleasure palace with offices and filming sets.
Some of the best stuff about Kink.com is the details: the “after glow” shots of the models and “Behind Kink” interviews.
I recently stumbled into this “Behind Kink,” featuring fuckingmachines.com’s director Tomcat giving a tour of all the new kinky machines to Kink.com’s CEO Peter Ackworth. I’m going to guess that Tomcat is the reason so much of the Kink.com material manages to be thoroughly pornographic without feeling especially misogynistic. Tomcat is genderqueer, smart, hot, and apparently very creative and handy with his hands. The whole scene is kinky, wild, and funny. A short documentary about fucking machines, if you will.
Warning: This is definitely x-rated material and not for the sexually squeamish. It’s also not for watching at work. That said, you can check out Tomcat’s tour here.
