He manages to seduce her with an irresistible combination of charm and sensuality. With him everything is better and more intense than she has ever experienced: love, sex, ecstasy - She wants to do everything to make her lover happy. He keeps on going with his erotic games and he immerses her in a world of sexuality that she didn't even know existed.

45 shades of pleasure & 5 shades of pain
27 June 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

That's for the characters involved of course. The viewer might feel different while watching this. Malena Morgan is a beautiful woman there are no doubts about that. Her acting talents on the other hand may be discussed (or disqualified if you are not enticed one bit by her beauty). And while this is not the best movie ever (it's mostly a build up to sex scenes, though they are all soft core in case you were wondering), this is still way better than 50 Shades of Grey. It may be more a "9 1/2 weeks" rip off, but the way the male is "playing" with our female "hero" can be interpreted into the "50 shades" category.

Having said all that and maybe writing too much for a movie, that doesn't have a plot other than the moral message that addiction and overdoing something is bad, the movie will certainly find its audience.
