Review: Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 2

I absolutely loved the first Rough Sex so I had high expectations when I heard the second video in the series was coming out. Luckily Rough Sex 2 did not disappoint in the least. In fact, it was kinkier and sexier than the first one!

Just like the original, Rough Sex 2 features performers that get to design their own scenarios and specifically request to work with their partner(s) in the scene, centering the idea of rough sex on choice and consent. Being able to see the negotiation between the participants, as we are with most scenes, is really phenomenal and I think it adds a lot to the scene itself. It shows the intentionality and work that can go into creating the rough sex scene of your dreams, and that it doesn’t have to be completely spontaneous to be hot and sexy, though that can be really fun too. While Tristan’s Rough Sex Series isn’t exactly an educational series it does educate the viewer.

The sex in this second in the series (Rough Sex 3 is already out, btw!) is much more messy, kinky, and varied than the first one. There are two fetish-oriented scenes, two group sex scenes, and lots of slapping, spitting, squirting, and fucking.

[Dylan + Madison : Cake]

I was both exicited and unsure about this scene as it started, but upon watching and re-watching I have come to an understanding with it. I love both Dylan Ryan and Madison Young, and I knew that a scene with both of them would be awesome. I loved the concept of Madison as Dylan’s Submissive having baked her a birthday cake as a surprise and getting rewarded by being beaten and fucked. I was wary of the cake, since Madison talks about cake sitting specifically in the intro. Turns out, I’m not too keen on cake sitting (it makes me yell “That’s sugary! Don’t get that on your cunt! Yeast! Yeast!”01 at the screen.) However, Madison licking cake off of Dylan’s feet? Totally hot. Madison drinking milk out of a bowl on the floor? Super hot. Dylan shoving Madison’s face into the cake while she eats and fingers her ass? Also very hot. Dylan squirting all over Madison after being fucked by the njoy Eleven? I don’t think I need to even answer that one, it should be self-evident.

[Bobbi + James : Eyes]

If Onyx and I were filmed during our usual (rough) sex it would look a lot like this, especially if the Hitachi in the scene was replaced with the Eroscillator or Wahl. You may or may not have wanted to know that. In other words: this scene is amazingly hot (or, at least I think so). It is rough and messy with lots of gagging, breath play, deep thrusting, and orgasms. What’s not to love? The chemistry between Bobbi Star and James Deen is sizzling through the entire scene, and all of the things he does to her are simply exquisite. This is without a doubt my favorite scene in the bunch, although I really love all the scenes in this film. A few choice moments: James coating Bobbi’s face with her own saliva (ridiculously hot), Bobbi coming over and over while having the Hitachi used on her, and James telling Bobbi “don’t make me put it on high” (meaning the Hitachi). The only thing that irritates me about this scene is that most of the time it is impossible to hear the nasty somethings that James is saying to her.

[Claire + April : Petals]

There is so much awesome with this scene, I don’t know where to begin. I’m not a big fan of pink, but on April it is adorable and coupled with all the wonderfully nasty things they do to each other it is actually kind of radical. Pretty pink petals down on the floor and a pink room call up cutesy flowery images of soft sensual sex, not rough wrestling, slapping, and fucking. Seriously awesome. While their chemistry is nothing like Bobbi and James’ (though that’s not really a fair comparison) they are clearly having a great time together. I particularly enjoyed when April physically safewords and we get to see Claire stop and them nonverbally renegotiate during the scene, showing that safewording doesn’t have to be a big deal or stop a scene completely.

[Madison + Nathan : Pony]

I’ve not done much animal play, but I know people who have. What struck me with this scene was I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Here are some random thoughts about the scene. Getting off on being uncomfortable is hot. Double oral with a flesh cock and a carrot is actually pretty hot. Not so sure how I feel about the carrot being used vaginally, especially without a condom, but I didn’t mind it, and Nathan sucking the side of the carrot after it was in Madison’s cunt is hot. Saliva dribbling from Madison’s gagged mouth as she’s fucked is super hot. When I first saw the scene I wasn’t so sure how much Nathan was into it, he seemed distant through the whole scene which turned me off a bit. We also don’t really see his face that often, usually he’s either turned away from the camera or cut out of it, which is weird. This bothers me, but not enough to dislike the scene as a whole.

[Chayse + Adrianna + Mark : Squeeze]

The concept of this scene is fantastic, Adrianna getting topped by Chayse and Mark, though once sex comes in Chayse starts to submit too, but I didn’t mind that. Truthfully, I thought two-thirds of the execution of the scene is awesome, the other third left something to be desired. Mark and Adrianna are super hot in this scene, they have a great connection and Mark really knows what he is doing. He talks in the opening to the scene about looking at rough sex/power play as an opportunity for him to lead the Bottom in a journey, and that is definitely what he does. I had seen Adrianna in Rough Sex and I didn’t care too much for her, she just wasn’t that exciting for me, but in this scene that all changed, perhaps at least partially due to a better partner.

I just didn’t find Chayse sexy at all. During the interview she showed some promise, but her performance was the first and last time I was reminded I was watching a porno instead of a sexy documentary on people who have rough sex. By this I mean, she acted like a hegemonic porn star, or at least that was my perception. While she didn’t look at the camera or any of that nonsense it did seem like she was acting for it, having sex for the camera, as opposed to Mark and Adrianna who were there to have sex that just happened to be on camera. Perhaps this is really the way she has sex at home, but somehow I doubt it. I was mostly able to ignore my annoyance with this and focus on the extreme hotness that is Mark and Adrianna, but every once in a while it crept in.

[Sinnamon : Poker]

Sinnamon Love's Scene in Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex 2 Sinnamon Love's Scene in Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex 2 Sinnamon Love's Scene in Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex 2

The reason why there’s only one name for this one (I’m following the way the scenes are titled in the DVD) is because Sinnamon Love designed the scenario and there are four men with her: Orpheus Black, Richard Mann, Shane Diesel, and Alonzo Knight. Putting up five names would take up far too much space on the screen. Orpheus is a Pro Dom, as is revealed in the pre-scene negotiation, and Sinnamon’s Owner during the scene. I was highly impressed with his skill as a Dominant, including his flogging technique, and his props. He wielded many different styles of floggers, toys, and an amazing and wicked-looking knife during the scene. I also got a pleasant shudder every time he put his boot on her body. Yum.

I loved that one of the men attending the poker party decided not to participate, simply watch and interact briefly with Sinnamon right near the end. The other two got into “punishing” her for “accidentally” spilling a drink. As Sinnamon mentioned in the negotiation, it’s rare to see a Black couple engaging in D/s play in a film, probably even rarer for an all-Black D/s-fueled gangbang/threesome02. True to stereotype both the men’s cocks were ridiculously large, as evidenced by one spanning her head as she sucked his balls. I was highly impressed. Sinnamon also used her pre-negotiated safeword during the scene and it was immediately respected, of course. I really loved that returned to their poker game once they were done with her.

Review: Sugar High Glitter City

sugarhigh

“Based on a true fantasy” Sugar High Glitter City is a futuristic land where sugar is outlawed. The film follows “sugar hos” as they go out and fuck for a fix while running into corrupt cops (who they happily fuck) and the Reverend Honey Dew, a reformed sugar ho who is trying to save the souls of the other sugar addicted girls. It’s wonderful campy sexy fun.

The first four scenes are rather short and including the interludes and narrated backstory into Glitter City they take up under a half hour of the film’s hour and thirteen minute running time. I love that a wide range of ethnicities, sizes, and gender presentations are represented through each of the scenes and that a gay boi/boi scene is included (my favorite scene of the film). Plus the music is great, I recognized only a few of the songs (Best Cock on the Block!) but they fit the theme of the movie and didn’t distract from it at all. The quality of the DVD isn’t great, but the scenes are exciting enough to make up for it.

Blue (Jackie Strano) and Stark (Stark) are cops known for “shaking down” the sugar hos and make Bitta Honey (Brooklyn Bloomberg) suck them off and fuck them so they don’t take her in. Jackie makes her beg for a blow pop he had in his pocket and has a gorgeous marbeled blue and white Vixen Creations cock (Leo?). The only thing that worried me a little was Jackie putting the blow pop against her clit, but the massive amount of ejaculate (“sugar water”) probably got rid of any trace of sugar.

Rev. Honey Dew (Shar Rednour) has renounced sugar but we get to see a glimpse of when she was just Honey Dew and she had a fondness for Cherry Glaze (Josephine X). They have wonderful chemistry throughout the short scene. They share a blow pop and Honey Dew is the Queen of Dirty Talk while she fucks Cherry. Both of them are covered in glitter, like most of the sugar hos throughout the film, which is only mildly distracting while watching Josephine come.

Gooden Plenty (Rocko Capital) picks up the sugar rent boy Blow Pop (Chester Drawers). Blow Pop happily sucks on Gooden’s liquorish sticks and ring pop, literally, before getting fucked. The shot gets weirdly distorted as they fuck, maybe representing the sugar high they’re both on? The scene is actually pretty short, which is regrettable because it’s ridiculously hot and I really want to see more of both of them.

Crem de la Marmalade (Simone de la Getto) is the Queen Sugar Mama of Glitter City and Salt Taffy (Hella Getto) is her favorite sugar ho. Simone’s glittery dreads are mesmerizing and their sweet nothings to each other (in addition to the same last name) makes me think they’re an item. Their connection is undeniable and their short scene fades away into a disco ball after Salt Taffy comes. Luckily we get to see more of them later.

Rock Candy (Charlie Skye) and Miss Goldie Icing (Aimee Pearl) give us a Daddy/girl scene with Rock sporting a gorgeous purple and pink marbled Leo. Unlike the previous scenes they take their time getting to the fucking. Goldie begs for Rock’s cock, they undress each other, and Rock licks sugar (his payment for his services) off of her breast and mons in lines like it’s coke. Again, the proximity of sugar to vagina took me out of the scene a bit, but it was definitely hot. Rock makes Goldie beg even more to be fucked and she continues as he’s fucking her, changing from asking to commanding as she gets close to orgasm.


Blue seduces Honey Dew from her sugar-free ways with the temptation of sugar and lots of wonderful kisses while Cherry watches. Naturally this leads to a long threesome, the longest scene of the film. Not surprisingly there is lots of dirty talk and it very much feels like Blue and Honey Dew are sharing Cherry, which makes sense since Jackie and Shar are partners. There are random close-up shots of Blue’s cock fucking Cherry which seem a little disjointed and awkward, but only take a little away from the overall scene.

The finale of the film is Salt Taffy returning the favor to Crem de la Marmalade. Again their chemistry is explosive, probably at least part of why they’re on the cover of the box. I probably don’t have to say it, but it’s amazingly hot.

I really enjoy Sugar High Glitter City, so much so that my biggest complaint with the movie is that many of the scenes are too short. I want more of it! However, due to being short every moment is full of sexy sugary goodness that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. Yes, I had to go there.

Review: Glamazons

If I had a crush April Flores before watching Glamazons I fucking love her now. It’s hard not to, after watching this porno film slash love letter to April. There’s no wonder in my mind why she was awarded Heartthrob of the Year at the 2010 Feminist Porn Awards. While there were plenty of things about the film that didn’t quite work for me, April sure wasn’t one of them.

Glamazons is an “art porn film,” and from what I gather is the third film by Carlos Batts featuring (his wife) April after Alter Ego and Voluptuous Life. From Violet Blue:

Carlos wrote me saying, “April and I first thought of this as an extension of the photography we’d created the first 4 years of our relationship. We shot so much, all the time; we just needed another medium to help document the speed at which we recorded our lives. After making Alter Ego we were hesitant about doing another video project because we were not trying to make a pseudo artist adult film, or gonzo porn. We just wanted to try to document our lives for artistic reasons. The video camera became a natural extension of the art.”

There are sort-of six scenes, or, really, five sex scenes: two partner scenes and three solo scenes. Every scene except for one features April Flores.

Review: Courtney Trouble’s Speakeasy

Speakeasy

I swear, it seems like Courtney Trouble is making films just for me. Queer Porn Noir? How does she know what I have always longed to see? This is the second film by Courtney that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing (the first being Nostalgia) and it won’t be the last.

The first line of Speakeasy kind of sums up what it is about: “Queer Speakeasy, a secret underground club famous for its hedonism, genderfucking, drama.” Based on real life Speakeasy clubs which were establishments during prohibition which served alcohol illegally. Of course this means all the characters are decked out in suspenders, fedoras, high heels, classy dresses, and look absolutely wonderful.

The only problem I had with it is that I didn’t care much for it’s leading lady, Lorelei Lee. While I do think she was a fit for the part and she did look the part she’s just not my kind of girl so I didn’t find her that attractive. She also frequently let off high pitched whimpers within her two scenes which was distracting, she kind of sounded like a dolphin.

Even though I didn’t care for her I did think her scenes were hot, especially the first one with Tomcat. Both of her scenes left me a little uneasy, however, as her character seemed to be out of control and often she didn’t seem like she was enjoying her lack of control instead she was burdened by it, especially with Tomcat. The two scenes without her were amazing and two of my favorite scenes in any porn I’ve ever watched. I fell head-over-heels with Speakeasy, as I have with everything by Courtney Trouble I’ve seen thus far (more reviews coming).

The music helps to set the mood as well, but I don’t mean the bow chicka bow wow style mood, but rather it is mostly piano-based period music which fades when the scene is colorful and helps the sex scenes connect with the rest of the movie. All non-sex scenes are in black and white and are wonderful at framing the sex as well as giving a feel for the period the piece is imitating. When the black and white scenes change to color everyone else we see in the establishment disappears aside from the couple in the scene, which gives the sex scenes the feeling of fantasy.

I especially love watching Jiz Lee and Dallas Fivestar enter the club at the beginning of the film: once inside Dallas hands Jiz the purse Dallas was carrying, takes the flower out of hir hair, takes of the feminine looking coat ze is wearing to reveal a white button-up shirt and suspenders, and slips a cap on hir head as an added touch. Ze successfully goes from a socially acceptable feminine appearance to one more masculine, which would have been appropriate for the time period.

Synopsis

A mysterious detective with a heart of gold and a fist of honey discovers an underground queer speakeasy, filled to the brim with hedonism and topped with a cherry bomb. Lorelei is a drop dead gorgeous femme fatale ignored by her misfit man, who would rather guzzle ale and arm wrestle than please his lady. She takes matters into her own hands with the elusive detective, who’s more than willing to fight for a chance to dance. Meanwhile, the bar heats up as Jiz Lee and Dallas Fivestar seductively play with suspension and sex – and the Speakeasy’s bartenders split the tips the hard way. Shot in the style of classic film noir and reminiscent of the 1940’s, Speakeasy draws you inside it’s secret world of rough sex, queer fetish, and fearlessness.
-via Courtney Trouble

Scene-by-scene

speakeasy

The first scene has no real lead in, it just drops us in the action of Lorelei Lee and Tomcat going at it in a hallway. There is an obvious power dynamic from the start between the two of them, and at points Tomcat is pretty rough with Lorelei including choking, much slapping, and dirty talk.

Most of the scene is extremely enjoyable, but when Lorelei gets really excited she seems to make that squeal/whimper sound that is pretty common, and while I’m sure in the moment it is hot it doesn’t do anything for me, so I end up watching a lot of the scene with the sound down. The other thing that I noticed is there seems to be two different camera angles in the scene, and the lighting is different depending on the angle, which is slightly distracting to the scene as a whole.

I do really like it, though, even if I have to turn the sound down.

speakeasy

This may possibly be my favorite scene in any porn I have ever seen thus far. Jiz Lee is rope suspended by Dallas Fivestar first partially and then fully. Jiz and Dallas work off of each other wonderfully and it’s obvious that they are both enjoying the scene and genuinely having fun. At one point after Jiz is tied up but before they are suspended Dallas puts hir cap on them, which is adorable.

There is a lot of wonderful rope work in the scene, and it gives a great example of how rope can take a while but there are plenty of things to while tying someone up to keep things interesting. This scene also has a bit of strange lighting disparities, but the beauty of the suspension is so great that it didn’t bother me while watching it, though I did notice it.

speakeasy

Another favorite scene of mine is a bit of the opposite of the last one, the bartenders Mustache Malone and Cyd can’t keep their hands off of each other and have some excellent gay FTM strap-on fucking behind the bar. It is a wonderfully queer scene, with two realistic colored Vixen Creations cocks (a Leo and another VixSkin one I’m not sure of). Mustache’s harness seems to slip down while he’s fucking Cyd bent over the bar, but that is the only thing that distracts from the extremely hot scene.

speakeasy4

The final scene comes after a fight between Billy Castro and Tomcat which results in both of them on the floor. Essentially they are fighting over Lorelei Lee, and she shows her appreciation to Billy in this final scene. He is equipped with what looks like a Vixen Creations Brando, a monster cock if ever there was, which makes an obscene bulge in his pants which made me exclaim “let it out already!” before Lorelei has the good sense to let the beast free.

Unfortunately this is another scene where I had to turn the volume down, and this one pretty much the entire time. I enjoy her sounds most of the time, but Billy’s guttural grunts added to her dolphin squeaks just did not do it for me. The scene in general seemed very odd to me as well, maybe because she is pushed around so much during the duration of the film and even though she is choosing to be with Billy and their interaction is much more tender than hers with Tomcat it still seems more of a helpless action than a chosen one. I’m not entirely sure why, I’m still thinking about that one.

There was also a part of the scene where a DO NOT URINATE in building sign was on the ceiling directly above Lorelei, and I couldn’t help but be amused when it caught my eye. Why? I’m not sure.

Despite not being fond of the lead actress still I absolutely adore Speakeasy, and I do think that other people would enjoy the sounds in the first and last scene even though I didn’t. The suspension scene is amazing, though, too, and if nothing else, this scene is worth getting the movie (though there are plenty of other reasons).

Much thanks to Good Releasing for sending me Speakeasy! (It can also be found for purchase GoodVibes)

Review: Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

Chemistry is, of course, the watchword, especially considering it comes from the director of the series of the same name it’s no surprise that every scene in Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex is full of it. Full of chemistry, that is. It’s also no wonder considering the female stars were asked to choose their male counterparts, which means they’re only working with people they want to work with, and which also means the scenes are capitol H-O-T.

Every scene starts with each of the two actors in the scene to come talking about what they like when it comes to rough sex, what turns them on, what they desire. The first four scenes are all roleplay scenarios set up by the women, the last is more of a flying by the seat of your pants situation where they just go with whatever happens in the moment.

While I didn’t care for every scene the five together give a well-rounded idea of different types of rough sex and different ways couples can play with power. Three of the five are male top/female bottom situations, one is a female top/male bottom, and in the last they both switch back and forth. I really loved the variety shown throughout the scenes and because everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves even the scenes I didn’t care for due to personal reasons I thought were extremely well done.

There is also an extra “Erotic Choking and Safety with Penny Flame” which teaches the basic safety of how to choke someone or how to be choked in an erotic fashion (as one may assume from the name). I thought it was an excellent addition to the DVD especially since there is a lot of choking that takes place during the movie. The “Safer Sex Feature” gives great safer sex tips and info on when using barriers is okay. Basically it was sort of a PSA, probably at least partially included because the performers in the scenes did not use protection.

My two favorite scenes are ones I will watch again and again, and I think the DVD is worth it just for those (for me). The other plus of having different types of scenes is that since not everyone is going to enjoy the same scene or scenes there may just be something for everyone. I’m extremely picky with my porn, especially straight porn, it has to be just right for me to really get into it, and two out of five ain’t bad.

Scene-by-scene

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

After we learn a little about Adrianna Nicole and Marco Banderas we watch Adrianna shower before Marco sneaks up from behind her and captures her, slapping her around and choking her. While the two worked well together I had a difficult time getting into the scene because I didn’t find either of them very attractive and they both kept making faces which turned me off, especially him. Every time their actions brought me into the mood their faces brought me out of it.

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

Satine Phoenix and Derrick Pierce are both a little more my style in general. Satine is stranded with car troubles and Derrick drives up, lets her use his cell phone, then decides to keep her company for the three hours until the tow truck comes. They start with flirting and (I believe) ad-libbed dialogue, showing each other their tattoos until Derrick propositions her for a kiss. One thing leads to another and soon he’s grabbing her hair and smacking her around.

Their chemistry together is amazing and his style of dominance is pretty much exactly what I desire so this scene really got me going. I was hanging on every slap and every dirty word wondering what would come next. It was phenomenal, and I don’t use that word lightly.

The action in the scene is pretty intense in general, and one of the hottest moments is while he’s fucking her on the hood of her jeep: he reaches down and ends up breaking her necklace off of her, beads fly and roll down her body and he just continues on. There is a lot of grabbing, gripping, and slapping, a rough blow job and generally rough fucking, and more than once Satine looks like she is in real pain, but also looks like she is enjoying it. I absolutely loved this entire scene.

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

Francesca Le is a housewife who is constantly ignored and Christian is the powerful business man who “gets what’s coming to him.” We watch her strip from her housewife drag into a black and white corsetted ensamble while he’s on the phone being toppy with his assistant. I think I liked the build-up better than the actual scene, though, possibly because of the anticipation of what was coming and because she wasn’t talking.

I really liked him, but she was a little too annoying for me to actually get in to. There were some things she did which I really enjoyed, some of the chastising she did of him and her language use, but when she punished him for making her come I was thoroughly confused. Her style of domination, as well, just didn’t jive with me as well as her attitude. He was adorable, however, and I actually wish I had seen more of his reactions but most of the time his face wasn’t able to be seen very well.

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

Although I liked them both in the interviews I was disappointed with the scene in general. Julius Ceazher is supposed to accuse Marie Luv of cheating, basically she wants a grudge fuck or make-up sex for her scinario. I wasn’t too impressed with their dialogue, though I was willing to forgive it because it was ad-libbed, but then I didn’t think the scene itself was that exciting. She mentions loving dirty talk but there is hardly any once they actually get to it.

While their positions are impressive–at one point he is standing and her legs are around him while he supports her fucking against him–and the chemistry is there for the most part there are many moments when she seems more interested in herself than Julius, especially after they move to in front of the mirror. There are moments when they interact really well, however, their fucking in general is intense as well and they do work well together, so the scene isn’t a complete loss, I just had a difficult time getting into it.

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

The final scene is definitely tied for my favorite in the bunch. It also starts out a little slow, after we hear Sasha Grey and Danny Wylde talking about their rough sex desires in their interviews we watch them play pool while conversing on the subject of rough sex. They talk about what they do and don’t like and Sasha outlines her two limits for Danny before they get to it: no slapping her tits, and no fingering.

They both obviously enjoy each other once they get started and are able to play off of each other very well. There isn’t a moment where they don’t look like they are having fun, and there are plenty of power switches throughout the scene. It starts off with Danny topping Sasha then at some point the power kind of balances out and they are both slapping each other and exchanging dirty talk until Danny slaps one of her tits. Big mistake.

Tristan Taormino's Rough Sex

He immediately knows hs mistake. She perches on him and muses over the way to punish him for crossing the very clear boundry she set. After a few minutes he apologizes, which she says is all she really needed to hear, and they continue on their merry switching way. I constantly get distracted with how long her hair is, how skinny they both are, and how long and thin his cock is (just like the rest of him, really), but none of those are bad things. Those are really the only things that distract me from the filthy sexy action, however.

Personally, I would get the DVD for the second and last scenes alone, that’s how much I love both of them. I think everyone who likes rough sex would be able to find something they like within the five scenes, even if they aren’t the ones I did.

Much thanks to Tristan Taormino for sending me Rough Sex!

Review: Courtney Trouble’s Nostalgia

nostalgia

How could I resist looking into Nostalgia when I discovered it was not only written and directed by the awesome Courtney Trouble, genious behind No Fauxxx, but also starring some of my favorite people including my personal idols April Flores and “Carol Queen herself,” as well as a few people I’d seen in previous movies such as Jiz Lee, Syd Blakovich, and Madison Young. I was intrigued the first time I watched the trailer (below) and knew I had to see it.

Upon watching it I realized that it was far more bizarre than I ever thought it would be, far more queer if you will, and simply amazing. I’ve actually watched it multiple times for pleasure not just for review purposes. It’s hard to describe what it is about the movie which I love so much, though it’s not exactly what I thought I would love from the trailer of it (below).

The premise is: “Trouble and Pepper are at home fooling around and watching porn, only to find that all of their favorite classic titles have been queered.” Not quite yet being a porn connoisseur I couldn’t pinpoint the classic titles that were queered in this movie when I first watched it. I was, however, able to appreciate them as queered versions of rather well-known scenarios: a exhibitionistic/voyeuristic almost-group-sex scene, a doctor/nurse/patient three-way, a daydream of a sexy power laden threesome, and a last request to be able to sample one of life’s decadent pleasures before being whisked away to the afterlife.

After some investigation I discovered the first scene is a queering of Behind the Green Door, the second a queering of Deep Throat, the third of Babylon Pink, and the last of The Devil in Miss Jones. All are films which are part of the “Golden Age of Porn,” made in the 70s. Nostalgia itself is dedicated to Marilyn Chambers, who starred in Behind the Green Door and died shortly before Nostalgia was shot.

Some of the scenarios are campy and others are downright bizarre, but they are all sexy and fun. I really enjoyed the soundtrack of Nostalgia as well, dubbed “glitter thrash” on the Nostalgia site. Each of the four scenes are lit dramatically differently, which gives them each their own unique feeling, but does little to tie the scenes together. As a whole the film has a very artsy feel to it in addition to the wonderfully hot scenes.

Nostalgia is a movie I would gladly watch at a porn night with friends or pop in when wanting something sexy to get off to. However, I want to emphasize that this movie is not for everyone, though that’s true with every porn movie I think it is especially true with one as quirky and queer as this one. However, if you like your queer porn campy and bizarre I would check it out.

Scene-by-scene

nostalgia1

We start with Trouble and Pepper laying in bed with the familiar glow of the laptop illuminating them (not unlike my own is currently doing to me). We watch them pop in a DVD and get comfortable as the credits roll. This sets the stage for the rest of the movie, and we now know that we are watching what they are watching.

nostalgia2

The first scene is the most bizarre. I was also less impressed of it than I was with the others despite it having Carol Queen in the background… but I am getting ahead of myself.

For those of us who are me and who haven’t seen the movie it’s queering the premise is still fairly simple, albeit strange. A woman is kidnapped and then taken advantage of in front of a crowd of masked spectators who are also playing with themselves and each other. It has a very voyeuristic feel to it, obviously, as a crowd is gathered around them to watch.

At one point Jiz Lee comes up all in white and fucks the kidnappee. I thought Jiz’s lack of expression while fucking was jarring, though it’s obviously purposeful, but that took me out of the scene while watching it. As I mentioned, you can see Carol Queen at many times just to the left of the action (such as in the picture above), and although she is wearing clothing you can see her using a pink LELO Iris on herself.

The scene ends with Jiz and the other woman ejaculating on the kidnappee, which is quite impressive.

nostalgia3

The second scene was probably either my favorite or tied for favorite, a doctor/nurse/patient scenario with Jiz Lee, Syd Blakovich, and Madison Young. I had seen all three actors in Champion prior to their appearance in this movie so I was already familiar with their chemistry. It was somewhat campy which was extremely fun. The movie it is parodying has the same premise: a woman (Madison) enjoys sex but has never had an orgasm, so she goes to the doctor to determine the issue.

The doctor (Syd) attacks the problem with some black-gloved examination with the help of his nurse (Jiz Lee) before bringing out a vibrator and dildo to examine Madison’s lack of orgasm. When they do not work they bring out “the big guns,” meaning the Hitachi, and although it’s pretty obvious that the Hitachi isn’t put against Madison’s clit when “testing” (as if it was she probably wouldn’t be able to look so bored as in the image above) it’s easy to suspend one’s disbelief for the sake of the story. They attempt some bondage as well before the doctor whips out his cock and they discover the issue. It turns out her clitoris is in her throat.

nostalgia4

Of course there is much cock sucking in the scene, considering she gets pleasure from it and even “squirts glitter” when she comes all over the doctor’s cock, complete with fireworks bursting on the screen when she finally has an orgasm. It’s at once hilarious and hot and, as I mentioned, extremely campy. At one point they even fuck Madison with the handle of a golf club (with a condom on it) in true doctor stereotype fashion. It’s wonderful.

nostalgia5

The next scene is a little sudden. Starting with a dinner party of three women, two talking about meat and the other one a vegan. The vegan drifts off into a fantasy of a fabulous threesome complete with a njoy Pure Wand and njoy Eleven in the mix. Oh baby. The scene was good until the gorgeous steel dildos were added into the mix, and then it was delightful.

The scene is kind of white washed, which was interesting but kind of distracting for me, it made all three women extremely pale (not that they weren’t already), and is a striking difference to the lighting of the first two and the last scene. The scene ends after the vegan gives the omnivores some vegan cake only then to be snapped out of her fantasy, at which time she asks “what’s for dessert?”

nostalgia6

The final scene mixes the fantasy porn world with the “reality” of Pepper and Trouble watching it. This would be my other favorite scene of the bunch.

First we see April Flores committing suicide (you can actually watch the glitter suicide scene here, provided by Courtney Trouble), and then she meets Kimberly Kane in purgatory who informs her that she is not worthy of heaven due to the way she died and not worthy of hell because she lived a pure life. Dedicated to get into one or the other April decides to embark on a journey of lust, a journey of queer lust to be exact. They appear in Pepper and Trouble’s bedroom finding the two already in the middle of lusting and join right in.

The pleasure of watching two sexy fatties getting it on with their (skinnier) partners is absolutely wonderful in and of itself. The lucky devils in this scene also use the Eleven and Pure Wand on each other, which jacked up the lust factor for me as well. There’s something gorgeous about watching shiny steel dildos being used on someone. The entire scene was sexy as the four switched between various positions and everyone pretty much lusted with everyone else. I really love the lighting of the scene as well, which is all in red as you can see in the picture above and the box cover (at the top).

Also, after the credits roll there’s a little bonus scene which shouldn’t be missed! It ties in with the Madison/Syd/Jiz scene and is hilarious and sexy. Similarly, the behind the scenes feature on the disc is really fun to watch as well.

Review: Hard Love & How to Fuck in High Heels

Hard Love & How to Fuck in High Heels is a two-for-the-price-of-one DVD from Jackie Strano and Shar Rednour by their production company S.I.R. Video Productions. It was the 2001 AVN Winner of Best All-Girl Feature and is a DVD I’ve been lusting after for almost that long.

I remember walking into the Babeland here in Seattle many many years ago and seeing a display of queer porn including this DVD and one of their other productions Sugar High Glitter City. Immediately I was drawn to it, a budding femme at the time, and I longed to buy it but I was broke at the time. It’s been on my mind many times since that day so long ago, but I never got around to picking it up, until now.

I’ve only recently become aware of the many wonderful porn companies out there who are, as S.I.R. Video proudly proclaims, “100% dyke produced.” My other two porn reviews are of similarly queer productions and I enjoyed them immensely.

Shar Rednour wrote the book on femme (quite literally in fact–she wrote The Femme’s Guide to the Universe) so I knew these movies would be full of butch/femme goodness, and I was not disappointed. Both films were very much butch/femme based, and How to Fuck in High Heels shows us femme in a way that’s unusual to see (but not unusual to happen): Shar Rednour is the ultimate femme top.

In both Hard Love and How to Fuck in High Heels all the dildos are made by Vixen Creations, and when we watched it Marla and I were trying to figure out which toy was which. Some of them look specially made in gorgeous marbled colors like pink and black, teal, brown, and black (which is gorgeous), and blue and white; others are solid colors like black and hot pink.

Also, gloves are used for digital penetration, dental dams are used for oral sex, and condoms are used for anal penetration, which is wonderful to see in any porn.

Title: Hard Love
Tagline: “Carnal Dyke Lust, Fiery Drama, & Passionate Hardcore Sex!!!”

Writer & Director: Shar Rednour
Cast: Jackie Strano, CC Belle, Tina D’Elia, and Johnny Fremont

Length: 51 minutes
Year: 2000

Synopsis

A dyke drama-licious tale of ex-lovers Jaz (Jackie Strano) and Renee (CC Belle) and their final goodbye sex, or possibly make-up sex, or possibly… whatever it ends up being, that we don’t really see. Jaz is now with Talia (Tina D’Elia), and Renee is with Devon (Johnny Fremont), so we get to see them with their respective honeys, but Renee is moving and has solicited the help of her old flame Jaz. Of course, Talia has something to say about this, and Renee doesn’t use the fact that Jaz is coming over to stop her from fooling around with Devon. Once all the dust clears we have Jaz and Renee packing up Renee’s things and reminiscing about old times, which, of course, leads to more sex.

Scene-by-scene

Hard Love Screenshot 01

We start with Jaz and Talia, going right into the fucking, no back story, no information except for these two black-clad people fucking on a gorgeous wooden kitchen island. The chemistry between the two is unmistakable, which is what I really go for in any porno. If the chemistry is good then the scenes are worth watching.

Hard Love Screenshot 02

The scene cuts to Renee and Devon coming in to Renee’s apartment, after lamenting having no time to do anything because she needs to pack Devon talks Renee into doing a strip-tease for him. It’s very cute and very cheesy, and when Marla and I watched it together we were amused at the cheesyness and how much the dialogue sounded like a conversation we would have. Renee strips down from her “corporate drag” until she’s in nothing but stockings, a garter, and panties.

Hard Love Screenshot 03

Before long she has Devon’s cock out from under his chaps and jeans and is sucking it with extreme close-ups such as above. While a lot of the shots are acceptable, the extreme close-ups were not appealing, they were just too close and not really sexy at all. Luckily it continually switched between different viewpoints, but every time it got so close we both were taken out of the storyline.

Hard Love Screenshot 04 Hard Love Screenshot 05

The other shots that really irked us while watching were the two above. Separately they would be fine, but they switched between those two views as if they were the same scene and Renee wasn’t in a radically different position in each of them. I realize the reason for this, to give a better shot of the big black Vixen Creations cock, but it was still irritating to watch. However, it didn’t take away too much from the movie as a whole, but it was enough to mention.

Hard Love Screenshot 06 Hard Love Screenshot 07

Cock riding changes into some doggy-style fingering (with gloves on) after which Renee convinces Devon to give her a strip-tease since she gave him one and turnabout is, as they say, fair play. I was a big fan of this butch strip-tease, done in a very casual and teasing manner, you can tell that both actors were enjoying themselves. Moving from chaps to jeans to tighty whities and plain white tank top and just tighty whities and cock sticking out.

Hard Love Screenshot 08 Hard Love Screenshot 09

Devon crawls back onto the bed with Renee before the scene cuts back to Jaz and Talia, giving us more of that extreme close-up with Talia this time as we watch some delicious mutual masturbation. At least the extreme close-ups don’t last for too long in this scene either, and we get to watch Jaz jacking off with a cock that looks suspiciously like Brando.

Hard Love Screenshot 10

Once they’re finished the drama begins, and we learn that Jaz is supposed to go help her ex (Renee) move, and now the plot starts falling in to place. There’s bickering and fighting that’s all too realistic and Jaz is heading out the door when he changes his mind and turns around, heading to where Talia is taking a bath and jumping in with her fully clothed, which I found incredibly sweet and cheesy, which seems to be a theme.

Hard Love Screenshot 11

After a zig-zag swipe (kinda like a star swipe but different) we come back to Renee and Devon, seeming to pick up where the last shot of them left off, and not a moment later Jaz bursts through the door. Devon promptly high-tails it so that Renee and Jaz can have a nice drama-licious fight. After much yelling and back-and-forth things settle down to packing up Renee’s stuff, proving that Jaz is still her bitch… er… butch, her butch. That’s it, yeah.

Of course, the calmer atmosphere post-fight is conductive to some sweet goodbye/make-up/break-up/something-or-other sex, which was predictable and I groaned as they started reminiscing and touching, the obvious signs that sexing was on the way.

Hard Love Screenshot 12

It starts sweet, and just like every other pairing there is obvious chemistry and feelings flying between them. They strip each other while laying in to it with a mix of passion and remorse for the relationship they once had, it’s pretty emotional which I found surprising to find in a porno. There is some gloveless fingering, the only we see in either of the movies, and before long Renee is scooting back to the edge of the bed.

Hard Love Screenshot 13 Hard Love Screenshot 14

Not only do we see the only gloveless fingering in the movies, but we also see the only anal sex, perhaps showing just how connected they are, able to engage in such an intimate act. It is sexy and intimate, a great farewell to a great relationship.

Synopsis

Based on a performance piece by Shar Rednour in which she explains how to fuck in high heels and the virtues of doing so. Includes a recording of her performance piece spliced with an “interview” of the cast and crew. After the interview and performance piece is over we get three delicious scenes of Shar Rednour calling the shots in gorgeous lingerie, flawless make-up, glitter, and high heels to die for.

Scene-by-scene

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 03 How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 02

The first 10 or so minutes is Shar’s performance piece spliced with an “interview” of the cast and crew of How to Fuck in High Heels. The interview is clearly satirical and pretty amusing.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 04

The first scene is between Shar and Simone in which Shar is sporting a glittery red bra, a gorgeous red cock and the matching red glittery Wonder Woman Harness by Aslan Leather, both of which I immediately wanted to reach into the screen and have for myself.

After an impressive blowjob and some titfucking during which Shar is leaning against a ladder looking very sexy–a necessary sex accessory according to her performance piece–the positions switch to Shar fucking Simone from behind wearing a camo bikini top, a thin black leather harness, and a thick teal, brown, and black marbled cock (you’ll have to get the movie to see that one, but trust me when I say it’s GORGEOUS).

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 05

Simone is also gorgeous in her hot pink babydoll that looks lovely against her skin, and knee-high black leather boots with impressive heels. In case you haven’t noticed I’m highlighting the lingerie, heels, and cocks that are displayed because it’s pretty much necessary in a piece called How to Fuck in High Heels.

Here we get start getting used to Shar’s almost constant stream of dirty talk, which was unexpected and somewhat annoying at first until I was used to it. She uses her dirty talk to make sure to keep her Top energy going through every moment of her scenes, helping her bottoms do exactly what she wants, and making sure her bottoms are in the right headspace, which is the mark of a truly good Top.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 06

The next scene finds Shar back against that ladder again, looking fabulous while she gets her pink and black cock sucked by Chester Drawers and her shiny vinyl buckle-laden high heeled boots shined by two dutiful butches, busting the worn Butch Top/femme bottom stereotype easily with the way she commands them both.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 07

We switch to Shar laying gracefully on a bed with great see-through spike heels which she promptly instructs Chester to suck, giving us a good taste of high heel worship and then feet worship while he then moves on to lick and suck her well manicured toes. Of course a movie about High Heels must include some shoe and feet worship.

This was the only part of the movie that didn’t quite jive with me. While seeing Chester sucking and licking on the heel of her shoe was mildly sexy when he moved on to the toes it dropped in sexyness. Not to say there’s anything wrong with some feet worship if you’re in to that, but it doesn’t turn me on.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 08

Finally, we cut to Chester lying down while Shar works him up to taking her gloved hand inside of him while he continues to lick and suck her toes. Her dirty talk is continuing throughout all of this, of course, and the look in Chester’s eyes is one of submission and really a beautiful sight to see.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 09

Our introduction to Josephine is in a brief interview clip before getting down and dirty. We meet a curly-haired pink-clad tattooed and pierced woman who is a “recent convert to the Shar Church of High Heels” and proud of it. She is passionate and enthusiastic as well as adorable and that all comes through in her scene with Shar.

They start off with some oral sex with a dental dam, showing that with enough lube dental dams can be sexy and show everything while making sex safer. They move to some combined analingus and cunnilingus, switching between the two and getting Josephine worked up to take Shar’s cock.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 10

Shar straps on a black and white marbled Nexus, a double-ended dildo made for strap-on play, along with the still gorgeous Wonder Woman Harness and lays down so Josephine can straddle her and ride her cock. This makes it clear that Josephine is covered in glitter, matching Shar’s harness and her own pink glitter collar wonderfully.

They decide Josephine should have something a little bit bigger, and since Shar has a hot pink cock that matches Josephine’s collar that seems to be the perfect cock for her. Throughout the entire scene they swap dirty talk wonderfully, and it’s clear that they both enjoy each other quite a bit.

How to Fuck in High Heels Screenshot 11

In the final scene the tables turn and Shar is the one taking a marbled blue and white cock from Josephine while they both wear matching silver glittery heels and Josephine is sporting a gorgeous silver glittery harness, absolutely femmetastic. Part way through the scene a rosy glow comes over them, literally, like you can see in the image above.

The image fades with the pair still fucking away, and the credits roll for both the movies. Overall Hard Love & How to Fuck in High Heels definitely met and exceeded the expectations I’ve been building of it over the past half-dozen years since I first saw it. It was cheesy (though I like cheesy), and the camera work wasn’t the best I’ve ever seen, but the connections between actors and the sexy, well, everything was enough to keep me hooked until the end.

Review: Champion

champion

I haven’t been watching as much porn lately as I used to. Really I haven’t watched that much porn since Onyx and I got together, but I used to watch it a lot, and this is something I want to change. I’ve never been huge into storyline porn for getting off to, though. I always prefer to just watch fucking, and usually a small clip of fucking to just get myself off and then go about my business, so Champion was a definite departure for me in that aspect.

I have lusted over Pink & White productions since I first heard about them which is why Champion was my first pick of DVD to review from Early to Bed. I’ve heard wonderful things about Champion as well as Crash Pad and the Crash Pad Series among others.

Like all porn movies I’ve ever seen (years ago) the acting isn’t wonderful. While it’s also better than a lot of porn acting Champion still has it’s share of flatly delivered lines and wrong inflection of words. I was happy that every sex scene seemed to have a purpose to either further the plot or give some sort of believable reference to it.

I don’t care too much for the storyline, but part of that was just not being that into storylines in general, I didn’t expect much from it because it is porn first and foremost and it wasn’t horrible just not great either. The fucking, however, was delicious and delightful.

While the story itself is somewhat believable I lost interest in it pretty quickly once the fucking started anyway. And, oh, the fucking. The chemistry between couples was right on for what they were trying to do in each scene, giving an idea of the character or somehow referencing back to the plot. Every coupling had it’s own unique feeling to it which made sense for the scene and characters.

Scene-by-scene

champion still

The movie opens with Jessie (Syd Blakovich) fucking her (ex-)girlfriend Kathy (Jiz Lee) quite vigorously while what sounds like a phone rings. The phone sound is actually an alarm or possibly text message signaling Jessie to go train. Jessie leaves quite abruptly leaving a frustrated Kathy who takes matters into her own hands, as they say. As the credits roll the shots alternate between watching Jessie train and Kathy fucking herself, giving us a good juxtaposition between fighting and fucking which we will get a few more times throughout the movie. It’s only a couple of minutes before Kathy comes and the rest of the movie begins.

champion still

After some fighting and badgering of Jessie from her manager we get to the next sex scene which starts with a quick hot deep-throating blowjob. We watch as a presumably drunk Jessie fucks Girl #1 (Madison Young). Yes, that is seriously her name in the titles: Girl #1, though there’s no Girl #anything-else, but I shall call her Madison from now on.

We see Jessie being extremely toppy and basically using Madison to satisfy her desire to fuck, not really paying attention to Madison as much as her cunt and her reactions which is rather hot. Madison is obviously into Jessie and enjoying herself immensely. The chemistry between the two is that of an incredibly electric one-night stand and absolutely fitting for the scene as well as very hot.

The scene itself is gorgeous, too, in a bed in front of a huge window which really made me want to move into the apartment. The only thing that detracts me from it is Madison has a tendency to let out little squeaky whimpers that kind of irritate me, but not enough to keep me from loving the scene. After much thigh-smacking, abdomen-scratching, fervent fucking we see Jessie waking up and remarking to Madison “what’s keeping you, honey?” Possibly my favorite line in the movie.

champion still 3

After suffering wearing a dress for a photoshoot then flirting and being rejected by her opponent in her next fight Violet (Dallas) Jessie comes home to Kathy with a bit of a bruised ego and takes that frustration out on her. We see her fucking Kathy much more tenderly than we saw her with Madison. The two have wonderful chemistry as lovers, which makes sense because they are lovers in real life. After a long intimate sex scene (yes, I said intimate) Jessie quickly up and leaves, which is as per usual from Kathy’s reaction.

champion still

In between clips of Jessie watching videos of old fights we come to what is quite possibly my favorite scene in the film. Jessie’s manager Tiny (Dylan Ryan) comes to see Jessie’s nemisis Bobby (Javier). From the request Tiny makes at the end it seems her reason to come see Bobby is to ask him to not fuck up Jessie’s chance of winning her fight against Violet, not knowing that Bobby has already talked to Jessie and rigged the fight. It’s a good excuse, though, to get these two in a van together.

Bobby and Tiny, like the rest of the couples, have wonderful chemistry and are spectacular to watch. As I mentioned, I think this is my favorite of the scenes, not just because Bobby is a transman and Tiny leaves her shoes on the entire scene which was very butch/femme and very hot, but also because the fucking is simply phenomenal. Bobby uses his cane as a spreader bar on Tiny’s knees (a trick I’m going to have to try) which keeps her wide open for so he can fuck her easily and enables us to watch her ejaculate not once but twice.

champion still

Once she’s been sated the tables turn and she’s strapped on with a glittery red harness to fuck him with. Both him fucking her and her fucking him is amazingly hot and I think it’s the combination of the two that really makes it my favorite scene.

champion still 2

After the fight, which in theory is the climax of the film (as opposed to the many climaxes the performers have within it) Jessie and her opponent Violet (Dallas) get down and dirty. This is the first time that we have seen Jessie get fucked, in all her other scenes she is the one doing the fucking but in this scene they are fucking each other.

It is a nearly twenty minute fuckfest of the two of them exploring each others bodies somewhat tenderly before really getting into it. The length was a little long for me, but they kept switching positions and keeping it fresh so it didn’t drag exactly or get repetative. Again, the chemistry here is wonderful and it definitely has that feeling of newness and wonder at a first intimate experience with someone you’ve been lusting at from afar.

Obviously I’m a big fan of the movie. Like I said, I wasn’t too into the plot, but it did give the movie excuse to have a couple fight scenes which were great to watch and to build up the tension between Jessie and Violet for the final scene. Just in case I haven’t raved about it enough, I thought the sex was wonderful and fit the attitudes of the characters and the movie itself. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys hot queer sex and a fairly good storyline.

from the official site

Jessie Eaton (Syd Blakovich) is a hotshot jock who can’t let go of her ex-girlfriend, Cathy Summers (Jiz Lee) while making her way into women’s professional Mixed Martial Arts boxing.

Her plans hit a snag when a run in with an old nemesis, Bobby Malone (Javier) blocks her way to the top. To save her career she must throw the match that would surely be her ticket into the professional arena. Even trickier is her attraction to the women she is suppose to beat, Violet Vahn (Dallas) who is Jessie’s toughest opponent inside and outside the ring.

It’s a big lesson in humility and integrity for Jessie as she juggles her relationships and her career. Will she win or will she lose? What does winning and losing mean?

Review: Good Dyke Porn


From Video “Twelve – Pussy Home Invasion – Part 2” on Good Dyke Porn

Each time I start writing this review of Good Dyke Porn I have to stop and start over, because I keep on not being able to convey just how much I’ve enjoyed this site, and how wonderful I believe this site and these videos are. Not only does every video look like real dykes having real dyke sex (interpret that as you wish) and actually genuinely enjoying themselves, they are doing it in a way that is incredibly enjoyable to watch as well.

The only negative I can say about the site at all is that I found myself getting so turned on by it that I got turned around on it, unsure of how to get back to a page I was on before without the back button or scrolling through multiple pages. Part of that was me forgetting how I got to a page after watching a video, cumming, and being generally brain-addled from that.

Even with the slightly confusing navigation videos aren’t at all difficult to find, just getting back to a specific video or page was difficult for me, and I enjoy the general layout and the way each video is laid out, with the ability to watch or save each clip from each scenario. Another nice thing about the way it’s set up is that you can choose get a general membership to the site or just buy individual clips that pique your interest, which is extremely handy because not everyone is into all the same things, so you can just pick and choose what you want to watch and what you don’t. Of course, the more clips you buy the more you would save by just buying a membership.

I’ve watched a number of different clips and different scenarios, from a familiar pizza boy scenario to a femme circle jerk to a femmed up male-bodied dyke and his lover engaging in play, and many more! Each one was strikingly different but they all were exactly what the title indicates: good (or great) dyke porn. I loved the feeling that I got from watching these, not just the turned on feeling but like I was peeking in on what these dykes normally did with each other, not that I was watching some elaborately staged visual adult entertainment that was trying to be anything other than real dykes getting it on.

I especially loved that everyone looked like they were real people, with all different breast sizes, body types, and skin tones. Like I said, every scenario is different, with a variety of tones, toys, and activities. Some have strap-ons and other toys introduced into the mix, some are just dyke-on-dyke fingers and mouth on cunt action, some have restraints and BDSM or D/s overtones, some have all three. They are all in various locations both outdoors (hot!) and indoors and each one of them is extremely fun to watch.

Some of the videos even have extra ‘behind the scenes’ clips as a seperate clip after the hot action, where you get to talk with those involved in the scene and learn a little more about them. I loved this, almost more than the actual videos (though not quite–I did say almost!) because it just emphasizes that these are real people that you’re watching having sex and having fun. Hearing the participants explain what made them want to do porn and how they were feeling post-scene was a wonderful experience that I really appreciated being able to see.

I also love that there is a male-bodied individual in one of the scenarios. I noticed a post on the forum about this as well (another great feature to have on a sex-positive very women-friendly porn site, the ability to converse with other members about the porn and just about anything). The forum post had the title “Do men belong in dyke porn?” It wasn’t someone complaining, just wanting to know what the others there thought. There were quite a few responses, including this one from Bren Ryder the creator of GDP:

“Women like different things and some may argue that there shouldn’t be a dildo or there shouldn’t be cake or there shouldn’t be young beautiful femme women with perfect bodies or there shouldn’t be a scene where a bio-guy is dressed up like a woman and then gets fucked in the ass.
I say there absolutely should be all of those things and MORE. Anything that serves our queer fantasies. ”

The majority of others on the forum agreed with her and I couldn’t agree with her more. I was extremely surprised and excited to see a femmed-up male-bodied person in dyke porn! If you’ve been reading me for a while you know that I’ve been talking a lot recently about the queer ways in which males and females can interact sexually, so I love having a video on a dyke site to point to exactly that!

I think Good Dyke Porn is an amazing site full of wonderful videos enjoyable to everyone even remotely queer (and in my world that’s just about everyone). If you haven’t, I highly recommend you go check out the site, look at the samples, sign up for the forums, and maybe even buy some clips. You know you want to.
