Plot – Spoilers:
Six regular people set about crafting elaborate props for their fairly unique fetishy fantasies. A lonely submissive single man irl secretly wishes to be dominant while wearing a rooster hat. A policeman gets off to tingly and ticklish sensations. A domina fantasizes about tormenting her neighbor. A mailwoman has a thing for bread pellets. A newsreader who feels neglected by her husband desires her toes to be sucked by fish. A pornstore owner creates a mechanical wonder to masturbate him as he watches the news.
Conspirators of Pleasure is a silent movie with comedic music and some of Svankmajer’s renowned animation when the different characters’ fantasies finally come to life. If ever a movie did justice to the category ‘Misc Paraphilias’, this is it.
