Bright Desire

On the web: Subscription Site, 3 Hatterhouse Grind, Ms Naughty on the Web

Bright Desire is a subscription website run by a feminist (and female) pornographer who goes by the name of Ms Naughty. (She has also used the name "Louise Lush".) The site was nominated for a Feminist Porn Award in 2013 and 2014, and one of Ms Naughty's short films, "Dear Jiz" (with Jiz Lee), was nominated in 2014. A collection of her short films, "Connections: Real Couples, Joyful Sex", was awarded an Honorable Mention in 2013, and a documentary she made, "Something Better: Performers Talk About Feminism & Porn", won an Honorable Mention in 2014.

Ms Naughty has for some years now been running the site Porn Movies for Women, which has featured content she purchased and, in many cases, edited, to make it more appealing to her intended audience. Around 2012, though, she launched Bright Desire as a place to share her original films. But there is a great deal more content here, as well. There are dozens of short films by other directors, usually about sex, but not themselves sexual in content. There is also a section titled "Under the Bed", which features videos and photographs from elsewhere, similar to what can be found on Porn Movies for Women. And there are more than fifty erotic stories written by Ms Naughty, some of which, we must say, are extremely hot.

The real focus of Bright Desire, though, is on Ms Naughty's own work, and there are now quite a number of her films available. There are a handful of what one might call "films with a sexual theme", which have a very artsy feel, but are not necessarily focused on the act of sex. In a more traditional vein, there are quite a few masturbation videos, featuring both women and men. The latter are from a series Ms Naughty did titled "The Thought of Her", and the videos include voiceovers of the men describing their fantasies. There are a couple homosexual videos, as well: one featuring two women, and one featuring two men. And, finally, there are several heterosexual videos, all of which feature just two people. (NOTE: This description dates from 2013. There are presumably many more films available now.)

The videos are shot in a variety of styles, from artsy to realistic, and the production quality, overall, is very good. The cameras are often handheld, which gives the videos something of a "homemade" quality. (We don't meant that critically. Rather, it makes the scenes feel more realistic.) All the scenes seem to be available as MP4s in HD format (1280×720), though some are available in full HD (1920×1080), as well. Even more importantly, the sex itself tends to be unscripted and genuine, which is due in part to the fact that Ms Naughty often uses real life couples as her models. She has, in any event, frequently written about the importantce of "authenticity" for her conception of feminist porn.

Most of the films are just terrific, and the more recent ones are even better than the older ones. We are particularly fond of "Dirty Weekend Away", which is a black and white film that shows real-life couple Kara Dasha and Devon having sex in their hotel room during a romantic getaway.

Ms Naughty also runs a number of other sites: Real Sex Films, Sexy Short Films, Quirky Sex, and the Feminist Porn Guide, and you can find a lot of writing about feminist porn on her blog.

This is nice, passionate, creative sex. There is a great connection between them, and they are clearly having fun together. There is a lot of playful talking, too, which is very nice. She rubs her clit to at least one orgasm as he fucks her from behind, and he cums inside her.

The camera work has a very "realistic" feel. One very much has the sense of just watching two people fuck.

Note that this review is of the extended video. There is also a short film, "IM In Love", that features the same two performers and some of the same film.

Synopsis

He is reclining on the bed, in shorts and a T-shirt, and she, wearing shorts and a sweater, is kneeling over him and kissing him. He takes off her sweater, lowers her bra, andd sucks her tits, then unzips her shorts and rubs her ass. She sits up and tells him to lie on the bed, but he pushes her onto her back and takes off her short and panties, then kisses her thighs and rubs her pussy as he kisses her face. He then gets between her legs and eats her. He grabs her and rolls onto his back, pulling her up so she is stradding his face. She grinds onto him as he eats her, and she asks him to "suck it, gentle". She leans over onto her hands, then takes off his shirt and kisses him.

She takes off his shorts and gets atop him in a 69. She then lubes him up, gets atop him on her knees, and inserts him slowly, perhaps because he seems to be quite thick. She starts moving on him very slowly, leaning over to kiss him. She gets out a Hitachi-style vibrator, gets up onto her feet, and leans back on one hand as she applies the vibe to her clit. He then holds it for her, but he falls out, so she gets on her back as he kneels in front of her, so she can hold the vibrator more easily. They start laughing, then, because the plug pulls out of the socket. But he just lies over her and fucks her slowly but deeply.

She lifts her legs over his shoulders, and he lies down on her, doubling her over. She frees one leg, then reaches down to rub her clit. She stops, and he fucks her hard and fast for a time. She rolls onto her stomach, and he kneels behind her, with his legs around hers. She reaches under herself to rub her clit at first, but then stops as he starts to fuck her harder. She asks him to grab her butt, then reaches under herself again. She cums in there somewhere, but we are not sure when.

He rolls her onto her back and kneels in front of her, but she reaches up, pulling him down onto her. They kiss as they fuck harder, and he cums in her pussy. They stop and kiss, cuddling with him still inside her.

This is a very nice portrait of a real-life couple having sex in a hotel room on a romantic getaway.

The sex is very loving and passionate, with great communication between them, and a fair bit of giggling. She cums at least twice, once when he is eating her pussy and then again when riding his cock. She makes him cum inside her as he lies on his back, almost completely still, and she squats over him, reverse, and bounces on his cock.

The scene is shot in black and white, and there is a fantastic mix of shots, including close-ups of each of their faces as they are pleasured by the other. It is has an extremely natural, and almost voyeuristic feel, which we found very sexy.

All porn should be this good.

Synopsis

They walk into their hotel room together, her in a cute dress and him in jeans and a T-shirt. She goes and changes into a cute lingerie set while he gets out a bottle of champagne. She sits on the bed and they share a toast and a kiss, and he then tosses her onto her stomach and rubs her back with massage oil. She leans up and kisses him, then rolls onto her back, and he lies over her. She takes off her bra and his shirt as they continue kissing, and he takes off her panties, kissing his way to her pussy. He adds a finger as she watches him, grabbing at the sheets as and she increasingly aroused. She cums at about 6:15.

She lies him back and removes his pants. They sort of roll around and cuddle, and she then sucks his cock as he smiles at her. She then gets atop him on her knees and rocks on his cock, then kneels up and bounces as he squeezes her nipples and she rubs her clit. She cums again at about 8:45 and collapses onto his chest, hugging him.

He flips them over, and she pulls her legs back. He then puts them up over his shoulders and fucks her hard. They pause and kiss, then roll over again so she can suck him. She then squats over him, bouncing up and down on his cock, and she tells him she wants him to cum that way, inside her. But she gets off him briefly and sucks him again, and then they switch to doggy style, with him leaning on her shoulders and pushing her into the bed. They switch back to the squatting position, with her resting her hands on his thighs. He cums with a start at about 15:05, and she falls back onto his chest.

A real-life couple have sex on a bed.

Loving, sexy, and passionate, with varied sex. The mutual masturbation sequence is particularly nice, as is the way he keeps with her as she struggles, it would seem, to cum. She finally does, masturbating after he has cum inside her.

Great, varied camera work, with a wide range of interesting shots, though there are a couple of glitches. Around 7:30 or so in the second video, there are a series of false starts, and it seems as if something went wrong with the editing. It's mostly for that reason that it is not five stars.

Note that this video is in two parts on the website. There is a 4:48 "bonus" video, as well, of oral sex scenes that were omitted.

Synopsis

They are sitting together on their bed and kissing, him in jeans and a shirt and her in a T-shirt and undies. She takes off her shirt and falls onto her stomach, and he straddles her thighs, unhooks her bra, and rubs her back with oil. She rolls onto her back, and he massages her stomach and then her breasts, kissing her torso. She takes off his shirt, and he lies over her, kissing her. She stands him up and takes off his pants, and she lies on her stomach as he kisses her ass, legs, and feet. She turns onto her back again, and he lies atop her, kissing her and stroking her face.

He takes off her panties and goes down on her as she pulls her legs back and open. He lies on his back, then, and she gets atop him, reaching back into his shorts to stroke his cock. She then gets over him in a 69, first kissing his cock through his shorts, then pushing them down and sucking him. He then kneels up on the bed, and she sucks him a bit more, then kneels up and kisses him while she strokes his cock and he rubs her clit. She then lubes his cock, and they start fucking with her on her back, reaching down to rub her clit.

He gets up and kneels in front of her as she pulls her legs back and puts her feet on his shoulders. She asks him to get behind her, so they switch to doggy style, and she reaches back to rub her clit. He then gets on his back, and she gets atop him on her knees, leaning over to kiss him as she rocks on his cock. They switch to spooning, then he pulls her up onto him, so she is lying on his chest as she rubs her clit again. She then lies on the bed, just masturbating, as he kisses her thighs and vulva. He then lies next to her and puts a finger into her pussy. After a few false starts, he kneels in front of her and fucks her again, cumming inside her. He then pulls out, and she continues to masurbate as he sits between her legs and fingers her. She cums, finally, at about 9:50 (into the second video). He lies next to her, and they kiss.

Features: Dildo, Orgasm, Vibrator

Viola uses two vibrators to masturbate, a phallic one that she never turns on, just using it as a dildo, and a small bullet vibrator with bunny ears that she does turn on. She cums as she holds the dildo deep in her pussy and uses the other one on her clit.

This is a very natural masturbation scene. The camera work is cinema verité, and slightly amateurish, in its feel, which gives the scene as a whole a very realistic vibe. It is intimate and voyeuristic, at the same time.

There are several versions of this video. What is reviewed here is the extended version, without the voiceover. There is also an extended version with a voiceover of Viola describing her fantasies. The original version, which is 10:17, edits out some of the middle portions, but does contain the voiceover. We prefer it without the voiceover, as that makes it feel more natural, but others may feel differently.

Synopsis

She strips out of her clothes until she is just in stockings on her bed. She lightly strokes her stomach, legs, and tits, then strokes up and down her vulva. She then grabs a purple vibrator and rubs it up and down her pussy, though she does not yet turn it on. She puts it into herself and fucks herself deeply with it, but slowly, with both hands. She leaves the vibrator in her pussy and gets a small bullet vibrator, with bunny ears, that she does turn on and uses on her clit, fucking herself again here and there. After fucking herself good and deep, she turns the vibrator up and starts rubbing it hard over her pussy. She starts fucking herself again, stopping and starting, then holding the vibrator deep in her pussy as she cums at about 17:05. She takes out the vibrator and rubs her vulva with it, then pushes it in and out of herself for a bit.
