When Girl/Boy 2, the latest from performer/director Dana Vespoli, hit HotMoviesForHer on June 8th, it created a mini sensation in the office. To be honest, it feels new, important, and valuable. Other studios and directors have been exploring gender for years, but the backing of industry leader Evil Angel allows Girl/Boy 2 to reach and influence new audiences. Vespoli builds on the themes of gender fluidity of 2013’s original Girl/Boy, casting genderqueer, trans, and cis stars, including the original FTM pornstar Buck Angel in his first ever mainstream straight scene with the stunning Valentina Nappi. Where Girl/Boy used a lot of dialogue between mostly cisgendered performers to communicate gender fluidity, Vespoli allows the performers’ bodies and actions to speak for themselves in Girl/Boy 2, resulting in a powerfully quiet and erotic work of art.
Scene 1 – Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree
As a huge Bowie fan, I was absolutely thrilled that Dana Vespoli (one of my favorite directors and performers) would do a tribute to Bowie in Girl/Boy 2. Bowie played with gender his entire career, from his Ziggy Stardust persona to the Thin White Duke. He played with stereotypes, theatrical tropes, and sexual identity. Who doesn’t like a masculine body in a tight-fitting dress? If this is your thing then you will love Markus’ look as the Aladdin Sane character, and Dana with an altered Ziggy mask.
Dana takes the lead as she brings Markus deep in her mouth, but as they start to have sex Markus takes back the dominant position. At times Dana is submissive and pleads with Markus, and at other times she is definitely in charge. Just like the Starman, Dana and Markus create a scene in which they ask the audience what it means to be a boy or a girl. Is it how we like to have sex, or is it the clothes we wear? While there is no definitive answer, watching the shifting dynamics in this scene was really fun.
Scene 2 – Venus Lux and Sovereign Syre
When Judy asked if we could do a group review of Girl/Boy 2, I made everyone else choose their scene to review before me. I honestly couldn’t pick because I’ve been excited about the movie and the cast list since I heard about it. The whole movie is dynamite, and I truly enjoyed seeing Sovereign Syre and Venus Lux together. Both women exude confident femininity and supreme sensuality. The opening of the scene, when Venus joins Sovereign on the couch, is ripe with a sense of longing and bubbling desire. The two porn stars tentatively touch hands and furtively glance at each other, as if to suggest they’re not supposed to be together. The scene is quiet but for the crunching of the leather sofa.
And then a gonzo porn rarity happens. Venus’ eyes graze over Sovereign, as if she’s deciding what to do with her friend. Venus and Sovereign start kissing, slowly, delicately. Sovereign slowly strips to her bare, creamy skin while fully clothed Venus begins to choke her. That’s when I noticed the dynamic shift from a nervous set of lovers to one with a slight D/s twist. Venus runs the scene, gently giving directions to a submissive Sovereign. They maintain long stretches of eye contact as if engaged in a call and response pattern of dominance and obedience. It’s so subtle, but it’s absolutely delicious to watch. Venus looks as though she’s evaluating every move Sovereign makes. Sovereign barely talks, but gasps at every nipple pinch, tit slap, girl cock thrust, and cunt fondle Venus delivers.
Compared to most gonzo scenes I’ve watched, Scene 2 of Girl/Boy 2 is so quiet. All of the dialogue is spoken in low tones, and the breathing of the performers seems to indicate actual pleasure rather than dutiful performance. Venus and Sovereign look completely at ease. (Maybe this is due to the lack of contortionist positions in the scene. Also, there are no close-ups of the penetration.) Both ladies are flushed in the face and chest towards the end of the scene, indicating actual arousal. The simultaneous, yet separate, orgasms and dazed post-climax expressions of Sovereign and Venus at the end make this scene intensely erotic, and one of my new favorites.
Scene 3 – Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi
Looking like a picture-perfect 1950s housewife, the scene opens with stunning Italian star Valentina Nappi sweeping the floor before strapping Buck Angel walks through the door. Buck sits down in an armchair and Valentina begins doting on him like a loving wife, but Buck doesn’t seem all that interested in Valentina, at first. Soon, Valentina uses her feminine wiles and sexy pantyhose to entice Buck into noticing her, and notice he does!
Once she sees that she’s caught his eye, busty Valentina climbs atop her man’s lap and hastily unbuttons his shirt while kissing him with fervor. Val’s red lipstick smears all over Buck’s lips and mustache, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Buck stands and removes his pants and reveals his shaven pussy. Valentina wastes no time kneeling down before her man and taking his engorged clit in her mouth, while Buck leans over and fingers her pussy.
After eating Buck’s pussy in a very submissive fashion, Valentina is seated down while Buck hungrily returns the favor. Enthusiastic cunnilingus and finger-fucking ensues from both parties throughout the scene, ending only when each performer has cum multiple times and they are too exhausted to continue. If this scene doesn’t get nominated for an AVN award, I’ll be genuinely surprised.
Scene 4 – Jiz Lee and Ruckus
Girl/Boy 2 concludes with inimitable non-binary star Jiz Lee joined by pansexual, heavily tattooed Ruckus. Beautiful, butchy Jiz picks up hitchhiker Ruckus, clad in a breezy orange sundress, in a blue mustang alongside a California mountain road. Without a word, the couple parks at a scenic look-out point (they have company – the white minivan next to them also contains a couple making out). Jiz sits Ruckus up on the hood of the car for a bit of kissing that quickly turns into cocksucking, and Ruckus’ cock looks gorgeous against their dress.
Jiz plays a bit of an aggressor and Vespoli’s camera keeps the focus on Ruckus laying back, looking pretty, and enjoying the blowjob. After a few minutes, it’s Jiz’s turn, and they switch places with Ruckus, laying back on the hood and getting their pussy eaten. These two make for an incredibly sexy visual; Ruckus is tan, tatted, and their shoulders look particularly broad and strong in the skimpy spaghetti straps of their dress. Jiz, on the other hand, looks pale in the sun, and their body is both strong and feminine in their black tanktop, dark jeans, and leather chaps.
Ruckus finger fucks Jiz while Jiz rubs their clit, Ruckus’ brown hair flopping around as they stare at Jiz, leading to Jiz’s first orgasm. Jiz orders Ruckus back up on the car and continues sucking cock before the condom comes on. Jiz briefly grinds their pussy on Ruckus’ cock before slipping it inside for some cowgirl.
When Jiz pulls Ruckus into a sitting position, it strikes me how often we see male performers repositioning their female counterparts, but not the other way around, and that the radicalism of this scene goes much farther than just casting genderqueer performers. There were times where I wanted Jiz to peg Ruckus, but I actually don’t miss it. I feel like that may have been too obvious, and that Vespoli and her performers have much more subtle and more powerful ways of undermining the typical binary structures of pornography.
The scene continues with Jiz and Ruckus fucking in missionary, where Jiz rubs their clit to another orgasm. Ruckus leans back onto the hood and Jiz pull the condom off and jerks Ruckus to orgasm, their ropy cum pooling on pubes and belly. Ruckus is left waving goodbye on the side of the road as Jiz drives off, concluding a great scene in a soon-to-be legendary film.
