With our last unreleased episode from the 2019 archives, we’re exploring an essential work in the kink and BDSM oeuvre: 2002’s Secretary, featuring the only Mr. Gray we would like to see dom. Our focus? The psychosexual nature of Lee’s emotional acceptance, Edward’s control issues, and harassment in the workplace—with a diversion into the quirky, fantastical nature of early 2000s films.
