"Kink" is finally here!

James Franco's long-anticipated BDSM film, directed by Christina Voros, hit limited theaters Aug. 22, with the actor celebrating the release at an opening party that night in New York City. The documentary explores Kink.com, the largest producer of BDSM content on the web, and reportedly "aims to explore the driving force behind this seemingly misunderstood fetish."

The film also seeks to de-stigmatize the BDSM lifestyle by serving as an educational resource about this realm of human sexuality.

"Kink," which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, opens in limited theaters Aug. 22. Check out the trailer above!
