With the upcoming election season dominating the US news lately, it’s only appropriate that we discuss Between the Headlines: A Lesbian Porn Parody from Filly Films. Directed by Lily Cade, and starring Lotus Lain, Nina Hartley, Aiden Starr, Ela Darling, Aaliyah Love, Vanessa Veracruz, and Zoey Monroe, as well as Cade herself, Between the Headlines is a corker of a political satire. If you’re like us, you’re going to love seeing Hillary, Michelle, Megyn Kelly, and Rachel Maddow get the XXX spoof treatment from some of porn’s top female performers. Released in 2014, this lesbian movie came out during a rather quiet political season, but with Hillary Clinton currently angling for the Democratic nomination, it’s all too fitting that we revisit this lusty, comedic gem of a film.
Scene 1-Lotus Lain and Nina Hartley
The first scene opens in what I’m assuming is the White House, with our beloved First Lady, played by Lotus Lain, and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, played by the legendary Nina Hartley, sneaking off to discuss their strategy meeting amongst themselves. It doesn’t take long before the two women switch the conversation from business to pleasure, and Michelle reveals that her husband has been so busy and stressed lately running the country that he hasn’t had much time to pay attention to their marriage. Michelle Obama is a beautiful, independent woman of course, but there are some jobs even the First Lady can’t do all by herself. Hillary, who is no stranger to marital issues herself, informs Michelle that Washington DC isn’t just a boys’ club of infidelity – women can have their extramarital needs met too! In a stunning display by one of the lesser-sexualized women in politics, Hillary Clinton grabs Michelle Obama by her stunning arms and begins to kiss her on the lips. When Michelle recoils in shock, Hillary reassures her that she’s good at “covering things up,” and the First Lady’s worries go out the window.
Nina Hartley and Lotus Lain are two forces to be reckoned with when it comes to lesbian sex, so to have them in a scene together is a real treat. Not only is Lotus Lain a dead-ringer for Michelle Obama, but she’s a delightfully nasty performer who relishes in getting her partners off. Nina, on the other hand, is a sultry seductress, taking her time – while remaining completely in character – to show “Hillary” the ropes of girl-girl lovemaking. The witty dialogue and political puns continue throughout the scene without ruining the atmosphere of the sex. Nina’s 100% real, body-spasming orgasm that wraps the scene up perfectly and is not to be missed.
Scene 2 – Vanessa Veracruz and Ela Darling
White House staffer Elena Rodriguez leaves work and heads to Bad Girlfriend Ela Darling’s apartment. Ela, all decked out in magenta lingerie, expects a late night booty call, and is instead disappointed to find Elena a bit shaken. After a bit of prying on Ela’s part, Elena spills the beans and reveals that she walked in on Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton’s Sapphic affair. The dynamics of Ela and Elena’s relationship are made perfectly clear, and it’s a great bit of casting. Doe-eyed Venessa Veracruz is lovely as shy, loyal Elena , and the impish, sexually aggressive Ela Darling drives the action. She makes a great speech about the oppression of the American people and how the powers-that-be wouldn’t hesitate to throw Elena under the bus. It seems that she’s convinced Elena to sell her story to the press, but not until they fuck each other. Ela is definitely the star of the scene, taking charge and aggressively fucking Vanessa with clit rubbing, finger fucking, pussy eating, and face sitting.
Ela gets plenty of chances get pleasured by Vanessa as well, and it’s a lot of fun to watch her cum. She does this thing where she shuts her eyes tight, clenches her teeth, and grabs her hair that I love seeing. As they cuddle on the couch afterwards, Ela has a glint of mischief in her eyes as she asks Vanessa if she would prefer a cab or an Uber.
Scene 3 – Aaliyah Love and Zoey Monroe
I really wanted to write about Scene 3 in Between the Headlines because I’m all about kitchen sex. This cute and bright kitchen also makes an appearance Kink School: A Guide to Anal Play, which I discussed here. I also really loved Zoey Monroe (she’s since left the porn industry) and Aaliyah Love together, as both women are ultra sexy dynamos who seem to actually have a good time on camera.
Before I even get to the sex in Scene 3, I have to share my favorite moment in the entire movie, which takes place before the Megyn K (Aaliyah Love) and Intern Zoey encounter. The scene opens with Hillary explaining her predicament to her fixer, Aiden Starr:
However, we soon find out the Megyn K already has the dirt and broadcasts it on her Foxxx News show The Megyn File. Bad girlfriend Ela leaked the story and now Elena is pissed.
The Megyn File is additionally funny as Aaliyah Love does a great job as uptight Megyn, and the news ticker at the bottom of the screen packs a bunch of goofy faux news jokes in on top of her icy comedic role. However, once the icy Megyn struts off the set, she needs her personal intern Zoey for refreshment. Megyn coaxes Zoey into a kitchen tryst, and the eager-to-please gal is happy to comply in order to keep her internship.
“Do I get a paid job out of this?” Zoey asks, and shrewd Megyn dodges the question. Megyn also stresses the value of sororities in a successful woman’s life, and Zoey replies that she’s Kappa Alpha Theta. Actually, Kappa Alpha Theta, according to their own website, “was founded in 1870 as the first Greek-letter fraternity for women. We value our history and our long tradition of leading the way for women’s groups and women in higher education.” In other words, KAT invented lesbian networking. Welcome to the perils of climbing the corporate ladder, Zoey!
Once Megyn gets her intern on her knees and between her legs, the sorority sisters do some networking. Megyn’s chirps of pleasure are a huge turn-on, as are Zoey’s dreamy eyes are she eats Megyn’s cunt. Also, Aaliyah Love’s ass and legs are gym time tight, and I’m jealous. There is not a jiggle in her toned butt!
These uptight, good girls are on the path the success, and Zoey butters her boss up as she gets on the counter to have Megyn’s experienced mouth and fingers work her pussy over. “I love Kappa Alpha Theta,” sighs Zoey as her boss begins to tease her twat. It’s not easy to be funny and keep your audience aroused, but we’ve already established that Between the Headlines manages to do that. The sex seems to flow naturally between these two, with Megyn asserting her power over Zoey throughout.
I don’t know if Zoey got a paying job out of anything, but she did get an ass teasing that made her knees buckle!
I also really enjoy the wide angle shots that show the room. Seeing an “ordinary” room turned into a fuck location flicks my imagination switch on more than a pretty, stark, modern loft does. Show me a (tidy) space that looks like my reality, and I’m in.
Scene 4-Vanessa Veracruz, Lily Cade, and Aiden Starr
Elena Rodriguez is in a difficult spot. She realizes she can’t trust her girlfriend after watching the Megyn File show, so she leaves her girlfriend’s apartment to think things over. Of course Hillary knows that it was Elena’s big mouth that leaked the story, but how will she prove that it wasn’t her who sold the information to the Megyn show? Just as she is thinking things over, a shadow appears from out of the darkness, and a stranger approaches her. The stranger (Aiden Starr) tells Elena that she is in deep shit because of her big mouth. Does Elena like spreading rumors and trying to ruin the best chance for a female president of the United States? The stranger thinks she might be able to bully Elena into submission but, Elena is a bit too cocky to take a stranger trying to strong arm her into silence, so she leaves Hillary’s henchwoman in the dark to think of plan B.
Knowing that she has to do something, Elena goes to the Rachel M. show to tell her about the affair between the First Lady and the Secretary of State. She also knows that if talks to the press she may have a chance of staying safe. As Rachel and Elena prepare for broadcast, someone enters the room, and that someone looks dangerously familiar. Never stating her full name, Hillary’s henchwoman tells both Elena and Rachel that this story cannot go to air. A compromise must be made, and tits must be a part of the deal.
The henchwoman bares her breasts for Rachel and tells her that if she postpones this show she can give Rachel a much better deal for two Republican scandals, and throw a State Rep under the bus. If the site of those fantastic boobs wasn’t enough to convince Rachel, Elena decides that she would rather work in the White House than be unemployed and scared for her life. Elena undresses and lets Rachel know that she too is part of the deal, and if Rachel acquiesces she can have both pairs of tits caressing her face within seconds. It’s a hard decision, but Rachel may have to decide which is the better deal.
