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]

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: 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.

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.

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.

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!
