Spoiler warning

Elliot Slater (played by Paul Mercurio) is a young, attractive, Australian professional photographer in Southern California. Having always been uncomfortable with his sexual proclivities, which tend toward the BDSM realm, he signs up for a dominatrix-themed vacation on a private tropical island known as "Eden" in the hopes of working through his discomfort. Unbeknownst to him, just prior to embarking on his journey of sexual discovery, he has unwittingly photographed an international jewel thief of whom no other photos exist. The jewel thief Omar (Stuart Wilson) and his criminal partner Nina (Iman), intent on recovering the film in order to retain Omar's anonymity, follow him to the island resort run by the dominatrix Mistress Lisa (Dana Delany) and attempt to seize the film while posing as vacationers. Following a tip that Omar is on the island, undercover police officers Fred (Dan Aykroyd) and Sheila (Rosie O'Donnell) arrive, Sheila in the guise of a vacationer and Fred as a handyman. Comedic antics ensue as Fred and Sheila attempt to identify Omar, whose appearance is unknown as no photographs of him exist except for the one in Elliot's camera, while Omar and Nina repeatedly try to steal Elliot's film. Adding to the comedy are the activities of scantily-clad vacationers and employees of the island, living out their dominant and submissive fantasies while completely oblivious to the criminals and police investigation in their midst.

Meanwhile, in the course of Elliot's experiences as Mistress Lisa's personal submissive, the two fall in love. The action comes to a climax in New Orleans, where Lisa and Elliot admit their feelings, all the while tailed by Omar who attempts to kill them. Fortunately, Fred and Sheila save the day, sending Omar and Nina to jail, and receive commendations for solving the case.

The spanking scene[edit]

The first spanking scene is in the opening of the film. It allows the audience to understand one of the main characters and how he came to be the person he is in the rest of the film.

Melbourne, Australia. Elliot (as a boy played by Brian Davila) misbehaves in the kitchen and the French maid (played by Rajia Baroudi) gets a hold of him. She corners him, pulls down his trousers and spanks him on the seat of his briefs while scolding him. The boy first reacts defensively, but then seems to secretly enjoy it.
