La Vénus à la fourrure | Venus in Fur (2013)

"Power play, domination and submission is a contradictory thing. Sacher-Masoch described it with genius, Ives and Polanski captured it with brio. By persuading Wanda of being her slave at all cost, Severin, in reality, forces her into servicing his fantasy. Becoming the Mistress makes her the slave of her submissive."   - Mr Dictator
La Vénus à la fourrure is a 2013 French drama film directed by Roman Polanski, based on the play of the same name by American playwright David Ives, which itself was inspired by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's novel Venus in Furs (German: Venus im Pelz).

Thomas is a writer-director of a new play, an adaptation of the 1870 novel Venus in Furs by Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Alone in a Parisian theatre after a day of auditioning actresses for the lead character, Wanda von Dunayev, Thomas laments on the phone of the poor performances to come through. As he is preparing to leave the theatre, an actress named Vanda arrives disheveled. In a whirlwind of energy and unrestrained aggression, Vanda persuades the director to let her read for the part. To Thomas's amazement, Vanda shows great understanding of the character and knows every line by heart. As the audition progresses, the intensity is redoubled and the attraction of Thomas turns into obsession. [based on Wikipedia]

Féerie | Moulin Rouge

Féerie (Moulin Rouge)

"Féerie is the title of the resident stage show at the Moulin Rouge, a famous cabaret venue in Paris, France. The show premiered on 23 December 1999. It replaced the Moulin Rouge's centenary show Formidable, which ran from 20 February 1988, to 14 November 1999. Out of superstition, after the success of the revue Frou-Frou (1963-1965), every show at the Moulin Rouge has been titled with a name beginning with the letter F, and Féerie continues this tradition."

A Voyage of Discovery (1992) | Jack Vettriano

This painting is one of your Mr Dictator favorite. Jack Vettriano has this facility to embrace eroticism in his paintings while remaining romantic. I see a couple of partner in crime, sharing their passion for each other, despite the world surrounding them. The man in the hat is crazy about touching her, as much as she craves his caress. Parting her legs to offer him haven, he slowly goes further, daringly fondles her thigh, worshiping her warm skin.

In the story, A Night in Paris, Master David recalls the command he gave Charlotte, probably after going to a Vettriano exhibit, that every time his hands savors her thighs she will part her legs to be caressed.

Vettriano is quite a prolific modern painters and fortunately, it is easy to find his paintings online. His most famous is The Singing Butler, a classy scene where a couple dances on a windy beach, surrounded by a butler and a maid.
