When viewer stands to right of hologram, a standing man and kneeling woman are seen in slight profile (viewer sees their right sides); both are dressed in S&M leather bondage gear, with the man wearing a motorcycle cap and gloves and sunglasses; woman kneels in front, with face in the man's crotch, simulating fellatio; as viewer moves to left, the man lowers his head while moving his hands about her head; the stage they are on also rotates as the viewer moves left, causing the man and woman to rotate so that by the end, the viewer sees them in opposite profile (viewer sees their left sides).


Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
