Master / Slave Dynamic Explored in Skow for Girlfriends Films’ ‘Control’

VALENCIA, Calif. — At a time when BDSM lifestyles are brought to public consciousness by the film and book “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the master/slave power dynamic is explored by director B. Skow in Girlfriends Films’ BDSM-themed “Control.”

“Control” tells the story of Alex (Scott Lyons) and his “Slave” (Skin Diamond). Alex lives next door to Katie (Claire Robbins), an introverted young woman who detests her mother’s work as an exotic dancer. Making matters worse, the mother (Darla Crane) regularly brings men home for sex. Soon Skin convinces Katie to join her in serving her master.

“I loved the project as it went against the norms of what is usually depicted in BDSM scenes,” said Skin Diamond. “I liked that although my character was a submissive, she was in complete control of her situation. As well as loving the story, I had a lot of fun shooting for B. Skow. His dedication to his vision is very inspiring, and it was nice to work on such a unique project for Girlfriends Films!”
