Review

The first 55 minutes of the movie are devoted to nothing but three sex scenes. This establishes Luke (Steven St Croix) as an asshole who has hired a bunch of hookers for a sex-crazed weekend, but it takes way too long, and it does not really do much else for the story. What's worse is that all three scenes are completely pornish, both in terms of their content and in terms of how they are shot. Not to mention the pornzak music.

We then finally get a few minutes of dialogue before the next sex scene, which is no better. That takes us up to about an hour and fifteen minutes.

At that point, we actually do get to the story. It is well acted by St Croix and McCray, though it is also extremely twisted. But there really isn't much of it, and only St Croix's character is developed at all. Indeed, few of the characters even seem to have names, so we'll have to refer to them below by the performers' names.

Overall, then, we did not care for this movie. If there were a lot to the story, as in, say, Diary of Love, then we might be able to overlook how pornish most of the sex is. But there is not enough of a story to justify watching over an hour of bad sex.

Other people clearly feel differently, however, since this movie was nominated for several awards: Best Drama at the 2014 AVN Awards, where Steven St Croix was also nominated for Best Actor; Couples-Themed Release of the Year at the 2014 XBiz Awards, where St Croix and Marie McCray were also nominated for Best Actor and Actress in a Couples-Themed Release; and Best Release at the 2014 XRCO Awards, where St Croix was again nominated for Best Actor. But it didn't win any of those awards, did it?

Scene 1: Jessie Rogers, Kurt Lockwood, and Steven St Croix (♀♂)

★★½☆☆

Time: 25:00

Cumshot: Face

Features: Anal, Ass to Mouth, Deepthroat, Rough Sex, Spanking

Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance

Some acquaintance of Luke's has sex with some woman who has had some kind of relationship with him. When he's done with her, Luke takes over.

This is a completely pornish scene. We literally do not see Lockwood's face until nearly three minutes in, and that is almost by accident.

Rogers's moaning is very unconvincing, and there is a lot of degrading language. That does fit the movie, but there is not enough context before the scene—there is no context before the scene—to make it seem that she might actually be enjoying herself, and it is pretty clear in the end that she is being exploited by Luke.

The sex is very rough, as both men more or less force their cocks down her throat, and St Croix slaps and spanks her. It is clearly established as consensual, at least, but we did not find it sexy. Unlike, say, in the final scene from The Sexual Liberation of Anna Lee.

Scene 2: Diana Prince and Jayden Jaymes (♀♂)

★★½☆☆

Time: 14:00

Female Orgasm: Yes

Features: 69, Analingus, Tribadism

Pleasure ✓, Passion

Two prostitutes, we think, that Luke has invited over to his pad, have sex on a pool table.

This entire sequence is much more stylized than one would expect from Girlfriends Films, and, while the two women seem to be having some fun, neither of them ever seems very aroused much of the time. Diana does seem to cum, though.

Scene 3: Diana Prince, Jayden Jaymes, Steven St Croix, Marie McCray, and Tommy Pistol (♀♂)

★★½☆☆

Time: 10:00

Cumshot: Face

Features: Blowjob

Cindy (Marie McCray), whom Luke has apparently hired, arrives as he is messing with the other two prostitutes and more or less has to wait. Eventually, he gets her involved with the other two women and joins in himself, as does Tommy (Tommy Pistol). Toward the end of the scene, Cindy and Tommy wander off by themselves, and she blows him.

There is really not much to this scene, and it is as pornish as the others.

Scene 4: Marie McCray and Steven St Croix (♀♂)

★★☆☆☆

Time: 17:00

Cumshot: Tits

Features: Analingus

Cindy (Marie McCray), we will later learn, is here to take revenge upon Luke for what he did years ago to her girlfriend. She sets him up by having sex with him.

There is very little passion in this scene, and the degrading language put us off. We really did not find it very sexy at all.

The camera work is somewhat better than elsewhere in this movie. There are a lot more wide shots, for example. But it is still somewhat pornish.

Scene 5: Marie McCray and Zoey Holloway (♀♂)

★★★★☆

Time: 16:00

Female Orgasm: Yes

It turns out that Cindy is the current girlfriend of a woman, Zoey (Zoey Hollway), that Luke had dated long ago and badly mistreated, possibly even raped. Having had revenge on Zoey's behalf, she tells her what she's done, and they have sex.

The sex is reasonably passionate, but there is not a great connection between these two women.

The camera work here is quite good, for the most part, and interesting, But there are some continuity issues when they are 69, and the cartoonish way the tribbing is shot does not do much for us.
