Review

This is a series of vignettes, of a more romantic sort.

Perhaps our main complaint here is that these vignettes seem "over produced", too planned, too performed. There's nothing offensive about them, but there just isn't much to get excited about, either. The camera work tends to be better than awful, without too prominent a male gaze, but it is not great. Most of the focus is still on the female performer, so that we see little of her partner's face, except when it happens to be in the line of the shot of her.

The music can be a bit loud here, too, obscuring the natural sounds of lovemaking, though it fades out as the scene progresses.

Scene 1: Iwia and Jay Dee

★★★☆☆
Time: 20:11
Features: Orgasm?
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ❌

Couple have sex in bed. She may have an orgasm at about 15:55, masturbating as he fucks her, but we are not sure.

There's some connection between them, and there is some passion to the sex, but it does not score highly on either of those scales. And she never really seems that aroused. He cums on her pussy.

The camera work is fairly varied, with a decent mix of shots. It's not as "artistic", though, as Lisa Loves or Kendo (which is not necessarily a bad thing). The gender balance, however, is not that great. The camera is very tight on her as she sucks him, for example, and if we see his face while they are fucking it is almost accidental. Also, when she is on top of him, it is shot from behind, so we really do not see either of them.

Synopsis

They awake in bed, with her in a baby doll and him naked. He strokes her ass as they kiss, and he starts to work his way down her body to her pussy, then eats her. He adds a couple fingers, and then kneels up so she can suck his cock. They start fucking in a spooning position, and then she sucks him again before getting astride him on her knees. They switch to doggy style, and then she is on her back with him in front of her. She reaches down and rubs her cit, and she may cum at about 15:55, but we are not sure. He then lifts her legs back and together, kneeling in front of her. She spreads her legs again, and he then cums on her pussy.

Scene 2: Lexi Belle and Chris Johnson

★★★½☆
Time: 20:07
Features: Orgasm?
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ✓

Couple have sex on a couch, undressing from a sweater and panties, for her, and sweats and a tank, for him. She may cum at about 19:20, just before he pulls out and cums on her stomach.

She is fairly active, which is nice, and there is a decent connection between them. But the sex lacks for passion, much of the time. She does seem to cum, though, just before he cums on her stomach.

The camera work here is similar to the first scene: not very well balanced.

Synopsis

She is lying on a couch in a lacy sweater and panties, and he joins her in sweats and a tank. They kiss, and he rubs her tits through her top and strokes her legs. He pushes her top aside and massages her tits, then sucks them. She rubs his cock through his sweats and pushes him back on the couch, then lifts his tank and kisses his stomach. She lowers his sweats and sucks his cock, and then she sits back on the couch as he eats her, her panties gone. She then gets astride him, on her knees, bouncing and rocking, then turns around, so she is reverse. He reaches down and rubs her clit, and then she leans back on her hands and thrusts at him. They switch to doggy style, as she leans over the edge of the couch. She sucks him again, then lies back on the couch, and he enters her while kneeling over her. She reaches down to rub her clit, briefly, and he grabs at her tits, then puts his thumb on her clit. She may cum at about 19:20, just before he pulls out and cums on her stomach.

Scene 3: Jessica Rox and Will C

★★½☆☆
Time: 19:37
Features: 69, Cum in Mouth, Orgasm?
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ❌

Couple have sex in bed after she awakes, naked, next to her lover, then rolls over to kiss him. She may cum at about 10:30, rubbing her pussy as he fucks her. He cums in her open mouth, masturbating himself.

That ending could have worked here, if it had been set up properly, e.g., with some communication between them, rather than just seeming like a standard porn ending. And we ought to see his face somewhere during the build up to his orgasm.

The obvious other complaint is that there is not enough foreplay. She is sucking him within a minute and a half, and they are 69ing before two minutes.

Somehow, the way this scene is shot, it is very hard for the viewer to identify much with the performers. It seems as if it is happening far away at times. So you do not get much of a sense for any connection between them, though there is some passion in the sex.

The gender balance, again, is not very good. She is entirely the focus.

Synopsis

They stroke each other, and she then sucks him. They then get into a 69, and then she turns around, and they kiss again. She then gets between his legs and sucks him again. She then lies on her back, and he gets in front of her and enters her. She reaches down and rubs her clit, but only briefly, but then starts to do so again a while later. She may cum around 10:30, but probably not. The switch to spooning, and she reaches down to rub her clit again. They switch to doggy style, and then she gets on her back as he kneels over her, sucking his cock and stroking him over her face. He takes over and cums in her open mouth.

Scene 4: Katie Jordin and Ryan McLane

★★☆☆☆
Time: 18:31

He is reclining on a couch by the pool, in just shorts, and she approaches in a pretty peach bra and panty set to initiate sex. Unfortunately, though, the sex feels quite programmed. There is not enough setup, and there is no real sense of connection between them. The sex completely lacks for passion, and her vocalizations seem to be forced. She never really seems very aroused.

Couples porn at its worst, basically.

Synopsis

She kisses him, then takes off her bra, and he sucks her tits as she rubs his cock through his shorts. She then sucks him as she leans over him, his shorts having vanished. She takes off her panties and leans over his face so he can lick her pussy, but the way he does so is standard pornish, without enough contact for the most part. She then lies on the couch, and he kneels in front of her and enters her. He then sits on the couch and she squats over him, reverse, then turns around and sort of sits on him. They switch to doggy style, and he cums on her ass.

Scene 5: Adele Sunshine and Angelo Godshack

★★★☆☆
Time: 22:00
Features: 69, Internal, Orgasm
Pleasure ♀, Passion ✓, Balance ✓

She is sitting on the back of a couch, naked, and he joins her for some fairly ordinary sex. What is at least a little unordinary is that he cums inside her, and she seems to cum just as he does.

This scene doesn't feel performed as much as it just lacks for passion. Badly.

The gender balance, as with the other vignettes, is not great, but it is marginally better here, and there is a bit more attention to her pleasure, as well.

Synopsis

They kiss, and she rubs his cock through his shorts. She takes off his shorts and strokes his cock as she kisses him, and he reaches down and strokes her pussy lightly. He then reclines on the couch and she leans over and sucks his cock, and then they get into a 69. She lifts up, kneeling over his face, and then she squats over him, reverse. She gets off him and sucks him again, and then they spoon. She sucks him again, and she leans over her and licks her pussy. She then lies on the couch, and he kneels over her and enters her. She reaches down and rubs her clit, and she cums just as he cums inside her.
