Live Nude Girls
Live Nude Girls (1995) is a comedy-drama written and directed by Julianna Lavin and released by Republic Pictures. Cast: Dana Delany, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Stevenson, Olivia d'Abo, Lora Zane, and Laila Robins.
A group of childhood friends get together for an old-fashioned sleepover party for jittery bride-to-be Cattrall. During the course of this all-nighter, the women share their most intimate feelings, secrets, and sexual fantasies (which are depicted in dream-like vignettes).
There is much talk about sex, relationships, erotic spanking, and experimenting with sadomasochism and other fetishes. This includes a reference to the book My Secret Garden: Women's Sexual Fantasies by Nancy Friday. From her conversation it is clear that the Dana Delany character is a masochist who often gets spanked by her boyfriends.
One woman (Robins) reveals her dream of dominating her supervisor. We see a brief fantasy scene of her in a leather dominatrix outfit cracking a whip as her boss cleans her toilet dressed as a bondage slave with collar and attached chain.
There are several brief nude scenes, most notably a fantasy lesbian love scene between Lora Zane and Olivia d'Abo.
The spanking scene
Delany describes her fantasy of being in a Godfather type film where she is spanked by a Mafia Don. In front of a group of men she bends over the Don's desk. He pulls up her dress, pulls down her panties, and gives her four hand smacks, three of which are seen in closeup. There is one face-reaction shot of Delaney. He then rubs ice on her ass.
This story prompts the Cynthia Stevenson character to flashback to when she was about 10 years old. After being caught with a Playboy magazine, her father tells her to bend over and pull her pants down. The scene ends without anything more being shown.
