Ball gags! And dungeons! And...ew, no, put down the machete! Now you're ruining it for me!

I keep looking at the trailers for the recent rash of women-in-elaborate-peril horror films such as Hostel II and Captivity and thinking, "Wow. If only that were porn!" I mean, that'd be right up my alley, with the kidnapping and the bondage and the elaborate dungeon scenes, except that I would like some BDSM sex to occur instead of all the, you know, maiming and death.

What's going on with these "horror porn" films--am I just not the audience for this, not much liking horror in general, nor having a sexual fetish for fantasy maiming and killing? If so, fine, fine, to each his/her own. Or is this someone's way of sneaking porn into the mainstream? Because if it's the latter, that bugs me. I don't want my porn metaphored for me in a sex=death analogy, just because our culture can show killing and call it horror, but can't show sex because then we'd have to call it porn and everyone knows porn is, ooh, shameful. Don't metaphor my kinky sex. I'd like the damned kinky sex served up as is, please.
