Review

Paulina (Natasha Nice) is the author of a successful series of children's books but wants to write something for adults: a horror novel. So she gets in touch with her favorite author, Wes Mueller (Richie Calhoun), and more or less falls in love with him on the phone. But her peculiar sister Sara (Kimberly Kane) thinks anyone who writes what Wes does must be deranged. Paulina gets scared herself when Sara digs up an old magazine cover showing Wes being committed to a psychiatric institution, and she stops calling him. Eventually, though, he shows up at her house to check if she is all right, and the two of them go to dinner with Sara and her husband (Rocco Reed) with the intention of scaring the crap out of them. Afterwards, Paulina and Wes heave a heart-to-heart and get together.

The story was written by Jacky St James (who is also credited as Assistant Director and Production Manager), and quite a bit of time is devoted to it: about 35 minutes. We actually wouldn't have minded even a bit more of the story, which is quite good.

Overall, we thought this movie was really quite good. It fully deserved to win the 2012 XBiz Award for Best Couples-Themed Release. It's very funny in places, and the two scenes at the end, when Wes and Paulina finally meet and then when they confess their love for one another, are romantic yet realistic.

One of our favorite little touches is the back cover of Wes's novel, as we see it, over Paulina's shoulder, after the first sex scene. It reads: "Wes Mueller is the #1 Best Selling Horror Novelist in the known universe. Everyone should own his books. Also, I think Jacky St. James is hot."

The sex scenes, for the most part, are well-integrated into the movie, and they are realistic and passionate. The exception is the third scene, which feels a bit gratuitous. But the other three are all terrific, and the last scene, in which Paulina and Wes finally have sex, is outstanding.

The photography during the sex scenes is very, very good, especially, again, in the last scene. There is a really excellent mix of wider and closer shots, and there are not many "medical" shots at all. The female performers are more the focus than their male counterparts, but there is plenty of attention to the men, for example, some nice shots of men's faces while their partners are blowing them.

Our only complaint about the movie is that the acting is a little inconsistent. Richie Calhoun is excellent as the male lead, and Natasha Nice is good in places. But sometimes her dialog feels a bit rushed, and Jack Lawrence is not great as her agent. But Kimberly Kane is very good as her sister. She often seems a bit over the top, but that's the role.

Overall, then, we really enjoyed this movie and perhaps enjoyed it even more the second time.

Scene 1: Alyssa Branch and Xander Corvus (♀♂)

★★★★☆

Time: 13:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Ass

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

The first sex scene, with which the movie opens, is a story within the story. A couple (Alyssa Branch, Xander Corvus) are being chased by a killer and have sex in a store room as their last act on earth. The story itself is cliché and over the top, but it is supposed to be, and it is very funny.

The sex itself is reasonably passionate, and there is excellent chemistry between them. There is a lot of kissing, and she really seems to enjoy his eating her pussy. Some of the positions are a bit pornish, but they somehow seem to fit the cartoonish character of the entire scene. Our only complaint here is that the fucking sequence seems to go on just a bit too long.

Scene 2: Kimberly Kane and Rocco Reed (♀♂)

★★★★½

Time: 19:00

Female Orgasm: Multiple, Cumshot: Pussy

Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Rough Sex

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

The second scene features Paulina's sister Sara (Kimberly Kane), who is role playing a horror fantasy with her husband Craig (Rocco Reed). He comes into the room and "attacks" her as she reads, but then they just start laughing. She liked his looking dominant, though, so they have sex with her being a bit submissive.

There os excellent chemistry between them. We especially liked how much they talked to each other while they were making love. The sex is very passionate, too. Kane cums at least twice, once while Reed is eating her, and then again as she is on top of him, slapping his chest as she rides him to an orgasm.

There are a few other touches of roughness, as well: he holds her arms down at one point; spanks her, at her request, at another; and pulls her hair. But it never gets terribly rough, and this is clearly something they both enjoy, and that fits the scenario with which they were playing.

Scene 3: Kelly Klass and Jack Lawrence (♀♂)

★★★½☆

Time: 10:00

Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

The third scene involves a woman, Bonnie (Kelly Klass), who has sex with her literary agent, Donald (Jack Lawrence). The seduction at the beginning is sexy, but the rest is pretty generic, and the scene just doesn't fit into the movie very well at all. Perhaps that is why it was edited down to just ten minutes.

Scene 4: Natasha Nice and Richie Calhoun (♀♂)

★★★★★

Time: 16:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

In the last scene, of course, Paulina and Wes finally hook up, in a very sweet and romantic way. They start off kissing on her couch, then go at each other passionately in the hallway, kissing and groping as their clothes fly off, eventually finding their way to her bed.

There is really amazing chemistry between them, but what really makes the scene is the tension that has been building between these two. We expected them to jump into bed together when she was sitting on her couch with him, in nothing but a towel, but she ended up inviting him to dinner at Sara's instead. And the confessions of love that precede the sex are romantic and sweet.

The sex is passionate and realistic, and they seem very into having sex together. She seems to cum near the end, prone on the bed and grinding against it as he fucks her from behind. It's an extremely sexy, passionate, and convincing scene.

The photography in this scene is absolutely fantastic, especially at the beginning.

  1. I love it. The final sex scene between Paulina and Wes (Natasha and Richie) is by far the hottest of the four. The tension built up between these two over the course of the film is palpable, their make-out foreplay is very very hott .

    1. I agree. And I think it's really important to note how, as you say, part of what makes it so hot is all the sexual tension that has been built up. We, as viewers, can almost feel how badly they want each other, and the kissing and such at the beginning helps sustain that feeling just a little bit longer!
