A PETITION to have kinky film 365 DNI removed from Netflix has racked up 70,000 signatures.

The film is a Polish erotic romantic drama based on Blanka Lipinska’s novel of the same name and features a number of steamy sex scenes between the two lead characters, Massimo and Laura.

Laura is a successful sales director at a luxury hotel in Poland, meanwhile young and handsome Massimo Torricelli becomes a leader of the Sicilian mafia following his father’s assassination.

Trying to save her failing marriage, Laura plans a birthday trip to Sicily, but all does not go to plan when she is kidnapped by Massimo and kept captive in his villa.

Massimo then gives Laura the ultimate task – she must fall in love with him within 365 days – and while trying to do so, the pair engage in a number of steamy romps in a multitude of locations including a boat.

However, a Change.org petition has blasted it for “glorifying Stockholm Syndrome and abuse” and said its availability on Netflix was a “mockery” for victims and survivors of sexual assault and abuse.

It reads: “For those who have watched it, we know he talks about child trafficking, sedates her, imprisons her, sexually assaults her and has sexual relations with her without consent.

“The main character also uses abuse tactics such as gas lighting, coercion, reproductive coercion and Stockholm Syndrome to financially, physically, sexually, emotionally and digitally abuse the woman he had taken.”

It also states the streaming giant should have included a disclaimer about the sexual violence within the film, and wants it removed permanently.

The petition added: “By taking down this movie on Netflix, we can protect sexual violence in adolescent women and adult women.”

The protest comes after Welsh singer Duffy slammed the film for “glamourising sex trafficking” following her horrific rape ordeal.

The 36-year-old singer penned a powerful statement to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, urging the streaming service to think about its actions.

The subject matter is no doubt a difficult one for the Welsh singer, who broke her ten-year silence earlier this year to reveal she had been  kidnapped, raped and held for four weeks in brutal captivity.

The Sun Online has contacted a representative for Netflix for comment.
