HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Male performer Derrick Pierce, a five-year veteran of the adult entertainment business, will be making his directorial debut for Adam & Eve Pictures this week with a movie titled Pretty Tied Up.
The movie features five explicit scenes of BDSM featuring a cast hand-picked by Pierce.
Pierce told AVN that he’s excited to make his directorial debut for a company as well respected as Adam & Eve.
“Adam & Eve has a great team that I’ve worked with numerous times before,” he said. “I couldn’t be more pleased with the arrangement. For a movie like this, I to push the limits, but in a socially acceptable, morally responsible way that people expect from Adam & Eve. BDSM fans are tough and loyal customers, and they pay attention to detail. They have high standards so it really is big shoes to fill in many ways.”
Pretty Tied Up features Lily LaBeau, Trina Michaels, Bridgette B., Kortney Kane, Isis Love, Skylar Price, James Deen, Mr. Pete, Christian, Sasha and Pierce.
“We are very excited about Derrick’s involvement with the project,” Adam & Eve Pictures Meredith Christopher said. “His knowledge of the BDSM world makes him the perfect director for Adam & Eve’s first authentic BDSM movie.”
Pierce said that prior to each sex scene, the performers would be interviewed about their likes and dislikes, adding a conversational educational element to the movie.
“I think the precursors to each scene are important because communication is the most important thing for BDSM players,” Pierce said. “I hope this movie gives people an opportunity to explore this side of their sexuality in a sex-positive way—perhaps opening up a whole new avenue for couples.”
Pierce is an experienced BDSM player and has shot for Kink.com, Dungeon Corp. and other companies in the field many times. He also cites directors David Lord and Brad Armstrong as two particularly influential mentors as he gets ready to helm his first movie.
“It really has been a while since Adam & Eve shot a true BDSM movie,” Pierce said. “It’s really hard to secure distribution for hardcore BDSM—this is more mainstream. Role playing is nothing new in this business—secretaries, bosses, babysitters, teachers—it’s all been done a million and one ways. This movie takes it further into a different realm. I want it to be an extension of what people’s fantasies are.”
