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 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 we have not tried them. It can now also be downloaded from the Lust Cinema subscription site at 1920×1080.

Scene 1: Velicity Von and Evan Stone (♀♂)


Time: 16:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Tits

Features: 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.

Scene 2: Heather Summers and Charles Dera (♀♂)


Time: 15:30

Female Orgasm: Faked (Badly), Cumshot: Tits

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.

Scene 3: Gracie Glam and Joey Brass (♀♂)


Time: 18:00

Cumshot: Ass

Features: Deepthroat

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

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.

Scene 4: Monique Alexander and Niko (♀♂)


Time: 15:00

Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: Hip

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.

Scene 5: Monique Alexander and Charles Dera (♀♂)


Time: 19:00

Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Deepthroat

Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance

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.
