Husbands and Lovers

From Spanking Art

Husbands and Lovers (1992) is an Italian direct-to-video film directed by Mauro Bolognini. It stars Julian Sands, Joanna Pacula, and Tcheky Karyo. The film is an adaptation of Alberto Moravia's novel The Friday Villa.


A sophisticated young couple's attempt at an open marriage backfires. By mutual consent, Alina (Joanna Pacula) spends weekends with a lover (Tcheky Karyo) while her husband Stefan (Julian Sands) satisfies himself with sex from prostitutes. But the arrangement becomes untenable for Stefan when he learns that Alina's affair has become dangerously sadomasochistic.

This R-rated erotic drama is distinguished by one brief spanking scene and numerous nude scenes by the beautiful Pacula.

The spanking scene[edit]

As seen in a flashback told by Alina to Stefan, Alina's boyfriend abruptly grabs her and forces her over his knee. He lifts up her slip and roughly spanks her bare ass. This very brief scene of five or six hand-smacks is mostly silent except for the voiceover narration from Pacula.

A video clip of this scene is available at Dailymotion.
