For some pornographers there is little difference between art and porn. The results don’t always come out as smoothly as you’d like them too, but this Vena Virago directed movie totally nails the art/porn merger on the head. Mixing interviews and gonzo-style filming (aka. the filming is part of the action), Virago takes the focus of the scenes away from porno and plays up the reality that these two stars are having sex. It’s like watching actors that play friends on a tv show hang out in real life. It’s really fun and engaging to watch. Plus she picked some of my all time faves, including Michelle Aston and Roxy Deville.
I was so looking forward to scene four with Michelle Aston and Page Morgan. It’s common knowledge that I have a crush on the lovely Ms. Aston and am always super excited to see what she has to offer. Unfortunately things didn’t go as sexy as I had planned. I loved that during her interview, Aston talked all about her time as a neuro-scientist (so hot!), but when she started in with the whole “I love making love to a woman because that’s the ultimate form of goddess worship,” I totally lost my boner. I’m not saying that isn’t poetic or whatever, but that kinda talk just doesn’t do it for me when I wanna get hot and bothered. The actual sex was a little on the “eh” side too. Anything with a Hitachi Magic Wand is pretty awesome, but Page Morgan seemed a bit uninterested, or maybe scared (well, it was her first real lesbian experience, so I’ll cut her a little slack).
The rest of the movie was pretty amazing though. I loved the pre-sex interview piece that came with each scene. It was really cool to hear each of performers talk about their time in the industry and how they started. My favorite one was definitely scene five’s Rebeca Linares and Tyler Knight. Both performers did their interviews in Spanish, which was fun, and I really liked how personal they got about their interests. The sex was pretty fucking mind blowing as well. Can’t forget that! This whole movie reminded me of Tristan Taormino’s Chemistry series, which I loved, and I can’t help but give it two thumbs up. I’m excited to watch disc 2!
