Four scenes revolving around sex between steps. This was the first movie in the "Tabu Tales" series.
The first and last scene involve a woman and her step-son; the second, a man and his step-daughter; the third, step-siblings. All of the scenes are preceded by a short story, usually about five minutes, that establishes the relationship between the characters. The ones for the second and third scene carried a lot of sexual tension, and the one for the last at least helped make sense of what happened sexually. The story for the first was harder to get into, as neither of the characters was very sympathetic.
The last scene is really terrific, and somewhat unusual. You don't often see a woman in porn use a vibrator while she is fucking. But Brenda James uses two different ones, as well as a butt plug, and she has at least four orgasms. The way she and Logan Pierce talk to each other throughout the scene is great, as well.
The other three scenes, however, are not as good. The sex in the first, with India Summer and Van Wylde, is reasonably passionate, and she makes some attempt to carry the story through the scene, but the sex ends up becoming a bit rote. The second scene, with Penelope Stone and the inimitable Steven St Croix, is the best of the rest, and the restrained passion as they kiss at the beginning is very sexy. But once they start fucking, especially, the sex gets routine, again. The third scene, with Jessa Rhodes and Tyler Nixon, starts out very hot, too, as she discovers him sniffing her panties and finds she is turned on by it. But the heat doesn't continue. And none of these women ever seem to be anywhere near orgasm.
None of these scenes are bad, though, and all of them are enjoyable.
The camera work is a bit inconsistent. It tends to be really, really good at the beginnings of the scenes, but then to become more pornish—too focused on the woman—once they start fucking.
So the movie overall is good but not great. But, as we said, this was the first movie in this series, and our sense is definitely that they get better over time.
Family Business was nominated for best vignette release at the 2014 AVN Awards and 2014 XBiz Awards, and for Best Porn Movie at the TLA RAW Awards.
Scene 1: Hot and Bothered (India Summer and Van Wylde)
The woman of the house (India Summer) has a habit of asking her step-son Zack (Van Wylde) to do yard work in the summer so she can watch him. He catches her masturbating through her dress when he walks into the kitchen. The next day, he asks her what she was thinking about, then tells her he was thinking about her. So they start having sex.
The story lasts about four minutes. To be honest, we didn't find it all that exciting, as it doesn't really convey much of anyone's attraction to anyone else, and neither of the characters is particularly likeable.
The sex itself is reasonably passionate, and she makes some effort to continue the story through the scene. But he does little more than talk dirty to her, which doesn't add much, and there is not a great connection between them. She seems to enjoy herself somewhat, but never seems terribly aroused. The ending—he cums into her mouth and onto her chin—is not totally pornish, but it is a bit pornish.
The camera work is all right, but the focus is too much on her too often. When they are 69, for example, we only see her sucking him. There are also some weird lighting issues that lead to heavy pixelation in places.
They kiss standing, and she pulls his shirt over his head, then unbuckles his belt. He lifts her onto the counter and spreads her legs around his waist, then takes off her panties. He kneels in front of her and eats her pussy, putting a finger into her after a bit.
She hops down and takes off her dress, then gets on her knees and sucks his cock, taking him all the way into her mouth a few times and sucking his balls while he strokes himself. She then gets onto the island, and he stands in front of her and fucks her as she lifts a leg over his shoulder. She reaches down and rubs her clit, then rolls onto her side.
He lies on the island, and she gets astride him on her knees, riding him. She reaches down and rubs her clit, then turns around into a 69, again taking him all the way into her mouth.
She leans over the counter, and he fucks her from behind. He pulls out and licks her pussy from behind, then stands up again and re-enters her. She turns a bit to her side, lifting her left leg over his shoulder. She then tells him to "take it out", and she gets on her knees and sucks him again. She strokes him until he cums into her mouth and onto her chin.
Scene 2: Dancing Around the Truth (Penelope Stone and Steven St Croix)
Martina (Penelope Stone) is getting married, and she has asked her step-father (Steven St Croix) to walk her down the aisle. That means they need to practice dancing together, which they do, since he is not much of a dancer. They end up having a deep conversation about both of their relationships, and she confesses that there is no "heat", no "sexual energy" between her and her fiancé. They go back to dancing, and she says she wants to feel with her fiancé what she feels with her step-father. "We shouldn't be doing this", he says. "We're already doing this", she replies, and she kisses him.
The story is very well acted and lasts about 5:30. The sexual tension between them is very hot.
There is a terrific connection between them, which is well established by the story. The sex is passionate in a restrained sort of way at the beginning, with meaningful pauses and desperate glances. There are wonderful moments when they are about to kiss, then stop to look at each other, then do kiss, finally. But they do not do a terribly good job carrying the fantasy through the scene. There are moments when they do, but the overall sense is that they might as well just be lovers. The sex also seems to become a bit rote toward the end. The larger problem is that she never seems terribly aroused, though she does seem to enjoy herself
There is a wonderful intimacy to the camera work, especially at the beginning. There are some really excellent closeups of their faces and bodies. But it becomes a bit more predictable once they start fucking, and she is too much the focus at times, especially when they are doggy style.
They kiss, standing, and he picks her up and grabs her ass as she wraps her legs around his waist. He lies her on the couch and pulls down her dress, then sucks her tits. He kneels up and kisses the insides of her thighs, then lifts her dress and kisses her pussy through her panties. He pulls them aside and goes down on her, then takes them off and really sucks her clit. He goes up and kisses her, and she then sits up with him and unbuttons his shirt, slowly, as they kiss.
She kisses his chest and neck, then he picks her up and lies her across his lap as he sits on the couch. He reaches down and rubs her clit as he kisses her, then says that he wants to be inside her, which she says she wants, too. So she sits up and kisses him as he quickly takes off his shoes and undoes his pants. She straddles him, and he lifts her dress over her head. She slides down his legs and leans over to suck him, then slips to the floor between his legs. He pulls her up onto the couch next to him, apparently to make it easier for her to deepthroat him, which he encourages her to do, and which she does repeatedly.
She turns around and gets astride him on her knees, lowering herself over him and riding his cock. She gets up onto her feet and bounces on him as she leans back on her hands, and he sits up with her and holds her as they kiss. He then stands up, lifting her by the hips and bouncing her on his cock as she wraps her legs around her waist.
They switch to doggy style, with her kneeling on the couch. She sucks him again, as he sits back on the couch, then squats over him, reverse, and reaches down to rub her clit.
She gets on her knees and sucks him again, deepthroating him a few more times. He then says he wants to fuck her some more, so she stands up and he fucks her from behind as he holds her arms behind her. He tosses her on the couch and leans over her, fucking her as she puts her feet on his chest. He fucks her really hard, then pulls out and cums on her tits and stomach.
Scene 3: Airing Dirty Laundry (Jessa Rhodes and Tyler Nixon)
Ashley (Jessa Rhodes) discovers her step-brother Jason (Tyler Nixon) sniffing her panties while doing the laundry—and she finds she likes the idea. She tries to get him to act on his fantasies, but without success, until she confronts him with a pair of dirty panties she finds in his room. She confesses that she saw him, and that she went back to her room and masturbated thinking about it. He thinks she's fucking with him, so she lifts her skirt, takes off her panties, and sticks them in his face.
The story, which lasts about four mintues, is really sexy, and very well acted. They make some effort to carry it through, but they do not do so as well as they might. They keep grabbing her panties, as if they might do something with them, but they never really do, and they do not really talk to each other as brother and sister.
There is some passion in the sex, but the heat that is established by the story doesn't really continue, which is too bad. In the end, it just feels quite routine.
The camera work is very good, with a nice mix of shots, especially at the beginning. Once they start fucking, though, it becomes a more standard, and we lose him from time to time.
She pushes him back onto the bed, leans over him and kisses him, then pulls down his pants and sucks his cock. She kneels up and pushes down her bandeau top, kisses him, and goes back to sucking him. She asks him if he'll sniff her underwear for her, which he does. He sits up and sucks her tit quickly, then tosses her on her back and eats her pussy.
They kneel up together and kiss as she takes off his shirt, and she then lies back as he leans over her and enters her. He disengages and goes down on her briefly, then lies on his back, and she sucks him again. She then gets astride him on her knees and rides him.
He turns her onto her side and licks her pussy from behind, then spoons with her. She reaches down and rubs her clit, and he then gets up on his knees over her as she lifts her right leg over his shoulder. They switch to doggy style, and she asks him to spank her ass, which he does once or twice. He flips her onto her back again and re-enters her, then pulls out and cums on her pussy.
She uses her panties to wipe up his cum.
Scene 4: The Awakening (Brenda James and Logan Pierce)
Donna (Brenda James) has started selling sex toys at "parties", but she is somewhat nervous about her own sexuality. It turns out that she hasn't tried the toys herself, but when her step-son (Logan Pierce) convinces her to do so, it leads to a sexual awakening—much of which he overhears—and she becomes a "confident sexual force". So he gets her to use some of the toys with him.
The story, which lasts about five and a half minutes, is sexy and well done. They carry it through the scene, in so far as they continue to use toys, but there is no further sign that she is his step-mother.
There is a pretty good connection between them, and it is great how they talk to each other throughout, in a very natural way. The sex is passionate, as well. It is very unusual, and very nice, to see a woman use a vibrator the way she does, while she is fucking him. She has four orgasms, at least. The blowjob at the end, with him cumming in her mouth, is completely natural, too.
The camera work is pretty good, though there is something close to a POV shot when she is sucking him, and we do lose him at times, especially when she is reverse at the end.
They kiss standing, and he turns her around and unzips her dress and rubs her tits. They turn on a "couples vibrator", and she puts it between her legs as he kisses her from behind. He sits her on a desk and kisses her legs, taking off her shoes as she masturbates with the toy, then kissing her feet. She puts the toy into her pussy as he licks her clit, then asks him to put it into her as he eats her. She cums at about 9:30.
He stands up and rubs his cock up and down her pussy, then enters her. She turns the vibrator back on and puts it on her clit as he fucks her, and she cums again at about 12:50.
She squats in front of him and sucks his cock. She then stands up, with her back to him, and he takes off her dress and panties, then kisses her pussy from behind. He enters her as she lies over the desk and pushes a butt plug into her ass as she uses as different vibrator on her clit. She cums again at about 17:40.
He then sits in a desk chair as she squats over him and uses the first vibrator again. "Grab my ass and bounce me up and down on your cock", she asks him, which he does as she rubs her clit. "Can you feel that plug in there still?"
She sucks him again as he stands, and she then straddles him, reverse, as he lies on the desk. She reaches down and rubs her clit again, and she cums one last time at about 22:40. She gets off him and sucks him again, and he cums in her closed mouth, with her dribbling some of it back onto his cock.
