Review

This was the third movie in the New Sensations Romance series, and it is about average for the ones directed by Lee Roy Myers. The story revolves around two co-workers who long for each other, though each is ignorant of the other's desires. The story is less developed story than in most of the other movies in the series, though, with only about twenty minutes or so being devoted to it.

The sex is a mixed bag. The first scene, with Evan Stone and Velicity Von, is really excellent at times, though it ends less strongly than it began. The fourth scene, with Monique Alexander and Niko, is also really passionate, and the last one, with her and Charles Dera, is all right. But the other two are fairly weak. Nothing ruins a scene like a badly faked orgasm.

The camera work in the sex scenes is overall pretty good. The weaker scenes also tend to feature more stereotypical shots, but for the most part a real effort is made to show both performers, including their faces.

So, this is worth watching, but primarily for historical interest.

On a slightly different note, we have bought two DVDs of this movie, and both of them were defective. The copy we watched was downloaded from Gamelink some time ago. Unfortunately, this particular copy, which is in WMV format at 852x480, is very heavily pixelated, since the bitrate is barely 1200Kbps, which is very low for such a resoution. It is alleged to be available at higher resolutions now, but I have not tried them. It can also be downloaded from the New Sensations subscription site, though only at 640x360, as of this writing, though I am told that they are re-encoding a lot of the older films, so it should be available in higher resolution at some point.

Scene 1: Velicity Von and Evan Stone

★★★★☆
Time: 16:00
Features: Orgasm, Tit Fuck
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀

Max (Evan Stone) is upset at himself after the way he dismisses an employee. So his boss Wendy (Velicity Von) makes him feel better by having sex with him in the office.

The sex here is reasonably passionate, and the camera work is quite good. The shots are generally pretty wide, so we have a sense of the performers' bodies, and not just their genitals. And there are some great shots of her face as he eats her pussy, and of his face as they fuck. (There are even what might be called POV shots, from her point of view.) But once he starts fucking her from behind, there are some really unnecessary "medical" shots, the camera work as a whole is less good, and the sex becomes less passionate, and a bit less convincing, too. But it is, overall, a really sexy scene, and there's a nice connection between them.

Synopsis

He kisses her from behind, taking down her blouse, and then pulling off her bra. He sucks her tits and takes off his shirt, and she turns around and kisses him. He puts his hand between her legs and rubs her pussy. He sits her on the desk and licks her pussy around her panties, then takes off her panties, adding a finger as she gets quite aroused. He stands up and pulls her to him, kissing her, and they switch positions. She sucks his cock, then gives him a bit of a titjob.

He lies on the desk, and she rubs her pussy along his cock, then puts him into her as she squats over him. She bounces on his cock, then leans back on her hands as he rubs her clit with his thumb. She then squats up again, leaning over to kiss him, and she rides her way to an orgasm at about 16:15. She then leans over the desk, and he fucks her from behind. He pulls her up with him, cupping her breasts with his hands, and she then leans over onto the desk again. He lies her back on the desk and re-enters her. She reaches down and rubs her clit hard, and he seems almost to be waiting for her to cum again. But she stops trying to do so, and all of a sudden he is cumming on her tits. She then takes him into her mouth briefly.

Scene 2: Heather Summers and Charles Dera

★★½☆☆
Time: 15:30
Pleasure ❌, Passion ✓, Balance ✓

Janet has been lusting after Mark, but just as she tries to talk to him, her co-worker Samantha (Heather Summers) rushes up and kisses him. This is her imagination running wild.

The sex here feels routine and programmatic, and there is not much of a connection between them. She never really seems very aroused, either, which is probably why she fakes an orgasm. He cums on her tits.

Generally speaking, there are too many edits, and they are too abrupt, so there is very little narrative (or other) flow to the scene. This is worst at the end, when he is just all of a sudden cumming. A lot of the positions are pornish, too, and so is the way the scene is photographed. We do see his face from time to time, but the focus is very much on her, and he is out of frame too often.

Synopsis

They kiss, standing, and she takes off his jacket and tie, then unbuttons his shirt as he starts unbuttoning her blouse. He pats her tits, then takes off her bra and sucks them. She then takes off his shirt, and he pulls up her skirt and slaps her ass, then lies her back on a desk. He rubs her pussy through her panties, then takes them off and goes down on her, fingering her as he rubs her clit with his thumb. She squats on the floor and sucks him, then lies on the desk as he stands in front of her and fucks her. She leans over the desk, and he fucks her from behind. He then lies on the floor, and she gets atop him on her knees, first leaning over him and then more upright. She says she is going to cum, and then fakes an orgasm, badly. She turns around, squatting over him and leaning back on her hands. She bounces on his cock, aand then all of a sudden he is standing up and cumming on her tits.

Scene 3: Gracie Glam and Joey Brass

★★★☆☆
Time: 18:00
Features: Deepthroat

This is a really sweet scene. Melissa tells Steve that, if he's ever lusting after someone in the office, he should just tell them. So he takes a bit of time, but then sits next to her and tells her he is "mad" about her. So they have sex in the breakroom.

Unfortunately, the sex does not live up to the setup. There is some passion between them, but there are, again, too many abrupt edits, which interrupt the flow. And to be honest, there isn't nearly enough passion, given what the circumstances are supposed to be. They do not speak to each other much at all, for example. And she never really seems all that aroused, though she does seem to enjoy herself somewhat. He, at least, gets to cum on her ass.

The camera work is not bad, and there is a nice mix of shots. But the focus is again very much on her, with too many shots in which he is out of frame.

Synopsis

They kiss, sitting on the couch, and she takes off his tie and unbuttons his shirt, then pushes it off his shoulders. He lifts her top over her head, then turns her around and rubs her tits as he slides her bra off her shoulders—which, when he takes off her skirt, turns out to be the top of a teddy that she is wearing under her work clothes. (Right.) He stands up, and she sucks his cock, bobbing on it and taking him most of the way into her mouth. She stands up and takes off the teddy, then lies on the couch so he can eat her pussy. He kisses his way up her body, then rubs his cock along her labia, and enters her. They switch to spooning, and he then reclines on the couch, with her kneeling over him and riding his cock. They turn over, and he fucks her from behind, then pulls out and cums on her ass.

Scene 4: Monique Alexander and Niko

★★★★☆
Time: 15:00
Features: Orgasm?
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ✓

This is Mark's paranoid fantasy about Janet and their co-worker, Walter.

The camera work at the beginning is all very close and intimate, and it is effective. It continues to be pretty good as the scene progresses, though she does become more of the focus, and there are some useless "medical" shots occasionally.

Monique seems really into having sex with Niko, and she is making genuine, contented little sounds very early on. And the sex retains some level of passion, with some excellent communication between them. ("Office work! I like my job now!" he says.) She cums at least once and probably twice, and he cums from behind her onto her hip, leg, and ass.

Synopsis

They kiss, and he runs his hands over her body as she turns her back to him. She turns around again and unbuttons his shirt, and he then pulls down her bra and sucks her tits and kisses her stomach. She gets onto the desk, and he pulls off her panties and goes down on her, licking her and then fucking her with his tongue. He stands up and kisses her, and she then gets on her knees and sucks his cock as he stands. She then lies on the desk again, and he enters her as she reaches down to rub her clit. She leans over the desk, and he fucks her from behind. He then lies on the desk, and she gets atop him on her knees. She lies on the desk on her side, and he fucks her from behind as she rubs her clit again. She says she is going to cum "again" and seems as if she may well, at about 1:19:00. He then pulls out and cums on her hip, leg, and ass.

Scene 5: Monique Alexander and Charles Dera

★★★½☆
Time: 19:00
Features: Deepthroat

The two of them have sex in his office when he moves back to Marketing.

This is a nice scene, but it seems never really to take off. There is a pretty good connection between them, and she seems to enjoy herself, but she never really seems terribly aroused. He cums on her stomach.

The camera work in this scene is pretty much as it is in the better of the other scenes: Good, but not great.

Synopsis

They kiss, standing, and she takes off his tie and unbuttons his shirt, giggling as she does so. He helps her out of her jacket, then sits her on the desk and pulls off her top. He takes off her bra, kneels down, unzips and lowers her skirt, and sucks her tits. She kneels down and kisses his stomach, then unzips his pants and sucks him, taking him deep into her mouth. She reclines on the desk, and he slaps her ass and kisses her thighs, then takes off her panties and goes down on her. He goes up and kisses her, and they start fucking with her leaning over the desk and him behind her. She reaches back to rub her clit a bit. He then lies on the desk, and she gets atop him on her knees. They swtich to spooning, both of them on the desk, and she rubs her clit again. She then gets on her back again, and he stands in front of her, then pulls out and cums on her stomach.
