This was the first "boy-girl" movie from Girlfriends Films, and the first of a series of ambitious films directed for them by B Skow.

The story starts abruptly with a couple, Liz (Penny Pax) and Tony (Kris Slater), in bed having sex and talking about the "big night" ahead of them. This involves hooking up with two pretty wild women, played by Yurizan Beltran and Gigi, whom they have hired to put on a show and have sex with them. It doesn't work out well, so they decide to try again with one woman, someone they trust, and meet up with "Voila" (Veruca James). They trade stories and end up in bed together. As Tony had feared, though, Liz ends up falling in love with Voila and leaving him. The remainder of the movie revolves around his crazy cousin Amy (Dana DeArmond) and her attempts to get him over it—as well as Voila's apology, when Liz leaves her, too.

This is a fantastic movie, which richly deserved its nomination for Best Romance Release at the 2013 AVN awards. The story is interesting, and the sex scenes, for the most part, are very well integrated into it. They are well shot, from a wide variety of angles, and, while the gaze is occasionally more male than it might be, my overall sense was that the presentation will appeal to people of all genders. The focus in the second scene, for example, is very much on what the two women are doing together, but that is completely appropriate to the story, and the scene is amazingly realistic.

My only complaint here, and what keeps the film from getting a higher rating, is that there is not as much female pleasure as there could be. No doubt, part of the point of the first scene is that it is a performance. But, in the fourth scene, the women almost seem to be waiting for Kris Slater to re-appear, which he never quite does. So, while they seem to be enjoying what they are doing, neither of them every seems all that aroused. Moreover, as another reviewer noted, this particular scene feels a bit gratuitous. It would have been much better had we been shown the sexual interaction with Voila that leads to Liz's departure. But the story is told from Tony's point of view, so maybe that is why we don't see it.

Overall, we would regard this as one of the best pornos we have ever seen. Highly recommended.

Scene 1: Yurizan Beltran and Gigi (♀♀)


Time: 20:00

Female Orgasm: Maybe

Features: Analingus, Tribadism

Pleasure ✓, Passion

Tony (Kris Slater) and Liz (Penny Pax) have hired Rose (Yuziran Beltran) and Dina (Gigi) to perform for them, and possibly to have sex with them. When they start performing, though, Tony ends up cumming very quickly from a lap dance Rose gives him. He vanishes for a while while Liz plays with herself as she watches, but when they call "Leslie" over to join them, she gets pissed and leaves.

The interaction between the two women is a bit pornish, but they have been hired to perform, so perhaps that isn't unrealistic. Still, the sex could be a bit more varied. It's not bad, but they seem to do more or less the same thing over and over. So, although it starts out very arousing, it loses steam a bit as it progresses.

The photography here is a bit closer than I expected, but it is not bad, in that regard, and there are a lot of wider shots. It would have been nice to see more of Penny Pax as she watches, though.

Scene 2: Veruca James, Penny Pax, and Kris Slater (♀♀♂)


Time: 39:00

Female Orgasm: Multiple, Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Liz and Tony have sex with their new friend Voila. This is the realization of a fantasy for them and especially for Liz: a threesome with another woman.

The way this scene is performed is incredibly authentic. The women almost ignore Tony at first, and there is a certain nervousness that runs through the beginning, too. They ask each other about what they are about to do, getting consent, which is, of course, very sexy. And there is a lot of communication, with the "partners" talking to each other in a way that is very believable, and their new friend talking about how sexy they are together, etc. The whole scene is just completely wonderful, and that makes it incredibly hot. It's amazing how that level of passion is sustained, on screen, for all of thirty-nine minutes.

The photography here is outstanding, with wide shots of everyone and nicely chosen closeups, though we do lose sight of him a bit when they start fucking, largely because he is buried by the two women. But the sex is totally realistic. There may have been some editing or direction, but one does not sense it at all.

So it's an absolutely amazing scene, with who knows how many orgasms from the two women. A particularly nice feature is that the sex does not stop when he cums.

Scene 3: Penny Pax (♀)


Time: 4:00

Female Orgasm: Yes

Liz masturbates in the shower as she remembers the night with Voila. It is hardly long enough to count as a scene, but it is wonderfully shot and fits perfectly into the story.

Scene 4: Dana DeArmond, Kris Slater, and Earl Slate (♀♂)


Time: 22:00

Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Footjob

Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance

Amy (Dana DeArmond) is Tony's kissing cousin, with whom he has a history from when they were younger. She comes over on his birthday, teases him with memories of their youth, and then offers to give him a footjob as a present. But her husband Richard (Earl Slate), who is with her, wakes up, and Tony disappears, leaving them to have sex on the couch.

The photography here is excellent, with a great mix of shots. We lose him a bit once they start fucking, though, as he ends up kind of in a shadow, and she is a bit more the focus than he is, but not overly so.

The sex is pretty good, too, but not quite as convincing as in the second scene. The bit with Slater is excellent, but there is not as much of a connection between DeArmond and Slate. DeArmond is fantastic, though, teasing Kris and talking to him before Slate wakes up, then telling him that he is having a dream and should go back to sleep.

She seems to have a reasonably good time, but never seems all that aroused. Still, overall, it is a pretty good scene.

Scene 5: Dana DeArmond and Dani Daniels (♀♀)


Time: 18:00

Features: Analingus, Tribadism

Pleasure ✓, Passion

Amy (Dana DeArmond) comes over with her friend Gina (Dani Daniels), offering to have sex with Tony (Kris Slater) to help him feel better. He more or less puts them off, though, so they have sex on his couch.

Unfortunately, this scene does not fit the story very well at all and feels a bit gratuitous. But the sex is reasonably authentic, and the women seem to have a pretty good time, though neither of them ever seems terribly aroused. They seem to spend much of their time waiting for Tony to re-appear, which he never does.

The photography, though, is excellent again, with a great mix of shots.

Scene 6: Veruca James and Kris Slater (♀♂)


Time: 24:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Analingus, Deepthroat

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Voila (Veruca James) shows up to apologize to Tony (Kris Slater) for stealing Liz away from him, but it turns out she is really looking for Liz, who has left her, too. They end up having sex.

The sex is reasonably authentic, and there is a pretty good connection between them, with some excellent communication and a generally playful attitude. She seems to have a great time and cums hard, masturbating as he fucks her.

The photography here is again excellent, too, with a great mix of shots.
