Review

A collection of stories about romantic and sexual relationships that trans-women have with men.

The first scene stands alone and tells the story of a transexual woman's coming-out to her boyfriend. It is extremely moving and might even serve as a kind of manifesto for trans-porn of the future. Amy Daly is fantastic as Lisa and, while Christian is not as good as her boyfriend, he is good enough.

The second to fourth scene, together, constitute a kind of trilogy, which is titled "Office Affair". It concerns a quadrangle: Robert Christian has sex with his assistant, Brittany St Jordan, while his girlfriend, Sarina Valentina, is having sex with her lover, Spencer Fox. Robert and Sarina then have make-up sex at home. The first two of these are fine but not great. The last one is terrific, with great chemistry and some very hot sex. We'll note that nothing is made in these scenes of the fact that the women are transexual. That seems appropriate, since they are well-known to their male lovers.

If we have a main criticism, it is that there is not a lot of female pleasure here. Daly certainly seems to enjoy herself in the first scene, but St. Jordan and Valentina never seem to be very aroused in the next two. Valentina's orgasm in the last scene is the only female orgasm in the movie.

To be honest, one of the reasons we rated this movie as highly as we did is simply because it is so important, as a film. Transexual women are rarely treated as women in porn, or even as people. Here, though, they are all treated as real human beings with feelings and interests, and that is extremely refreshing.

This movie won the 2013 Feminist Porn Award for Steamiest Romantic Movie.

Scene 1: Meeting the Parents (Amy Daly and Christian XXX)

★★★★½
Time: 39:58
Features: Anal, Analingus
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ♀

Lisa (Amy Daly) and Christian have been dating for some time, but they have not yet been intimate. When he takes her to meet his parents, though, a storm forces them to stay the night, which forces Amy to share her "secret" with him. His reaction is beautiful, and he does an amazing job conveying his confusion, but then confirms his love for her. They end up, of course, having sex.

The acting is generally very good. Erica Lauren and Ian Whitcomb are fantastic as Christian's parents. They are really quite funny, and very natural. But there are times when Christian's dialogue seems a little forced, though he is never terrible. Daly is amazing, especially in the crucial scene, when she conveys perfectly how scared and vulnerable she is.

The backstory consumes about 16:00, so the sex lasts about 24:00. And the sex is generally quite realistic and passionate. She seems to enjoy herself, but she never really seems all that aroused. That struck us as wrong, since this is the first time she's having sex with her some-time boyfriend, who really cares about her. But they do a very good job staying in role, and there is some nice communication between them, though not quite as much as we would have liked.

The camera work is, as usual with Noelle, terrific, though there are a few more "medical" shots than we would prefer.

Synopsis

They kiss as they stand, and he holds her genitals. They wrap their arms around each other as they stand, and she then drops to her knees in front of him and undoes his pants. She sucks him, and he leans over and kisses her, then stands her up and takes off her nightgown. He lies her back on the bed and sucks her tits, then takes off her panties and licks her asshole as she pulls her legs back.

He kneels over her and kisses her, then slowly enters her ass. He fucks her softly, still kissing her, and they hold each other tightly. He kneels up and fucks her a bit faster, then disengages and sucks her tits again. He rolls her onto her side and re-enters her. He then lies on his back, and she strokes his cock and kisses him, then gets astride him on her knees. She rides his cock, grinding her cock against his stomach. She gets off him, and they switch to spooning. He then pulls out and cums on her dick.

They finish by kissing and cuddling.

Scene 2: Office Affair Part 1 (Brittany St. Jordan and Robert Christian)

★★★½☆
Time: 35:40
Features: 96, Anal, Analingus
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ♀

Brittany and Robert are co-workers, and they go have a drink together. They end up in bed.

The sex is fine, but we thought the fucking sequences went on a bit too long and became a bit monotonous. She also never seems all that aroused.

The camera work is quite good, as usual, though we lose him when the are doggy style. There were also a few too many medical shots for us.

Synopsis

They kiss at the bar, and then we join them in someone's bedroom. He tosses her onto the bed as he undoes his jacket and she undoes her top. He kisses her chest, then her face and neck, and she undoes his pants. He pulls her up with him, and she kisses his chest as he removes her bra. He pushes her back onto the bed and sucks her tits, then pulls down her pants.

He kisses her legs, then kisses her thighs and cock through her panties. He pushes down his pants, then pulls off her panties and sucks her cock. She rolls onto her stomach, and he licks her asshole, then sucks her cock. He then kneels up and enters her, though only briefly. She gets up on all fours and sucks him as he kneels.

They kneel together and kiss, and she sucks him again, and then they get into a 69 with him on top. He moves between her legs as she pulls them back, and he rubs their cocks together.

They start fucking with him lying over her, then roll over so she is atop him, then roll back over again. She throws her legs to one side, then gets onto her knees, and he fucks her doggy style, pulling out and cumming on her ass.

Scene 3: Office Affair Part 2 (Sarina Valentina and Spencer Fox)

★★★½☆
Time: 24:11
Features: Anal, Analingus, Ass to Mouth
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ♀

Sabrina's partner Robert is working late, as expected, which gives her time to have sex with her lover Spencer. They talk about when she might split up with him, and she tells him to "put his mouth to better use".

The story lasts about two minutes, leaving 22 minutes for sex. There isn't much to the story, obviously, and the acting is pretty poor.

The sex does not feel routine, but it does not feel terribly natural or passionate, either, though there is some chemistry between them. But she never seems terribly aroused.

The camera work is very good, but we do lose him a bit at times when they are fucking.

Synopsis

They kiss in bed, then kneel up together, and she reaches down and grabs his cock. He leans over and sucks her tits, and she then leans over and sucks him. He leans over her and kisses her ass, then pulls her up with him, turns her around, and gets her to take off her panties. He then kisses and licks her ass from behind.

He lies on the bed and playus with his cock while she kisses him, and she then sucks him again. She then lies on her back, and he kneels in front of her and rubs his cock against hers as he sucks her tits. He rolls her legs back and licks her ass again, and she reaches down and plays with her dick.

He puts himself into her and starts fucking her. They disengage, and she sucks him a bit more, then gets astride him on her knees, leaning over to kiss him. He reaches around and slaps her ass a few times, thrusting hard up into her. He tosses her onto her back again and lifts her legs to lick her ass.

He re-enters her, spooning, then gets up on his knees as she lies on her side. They switch to doggy style, then go back to spooning. He leans over and sucks her tits as he fucks her, then kneels up behind her again. He pulls out and cums on her cock and stomach.

Scene 4: Office Affair Part 3 (Sarina Valentina and Robert Christian)

★★★★½
Time: 33:27
Features: Anal, Analingus, Orgasm, Penis Masturbation
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀

Robert comes home very late, and they have a fight, since both of them know that the other has been fucking their respective lover. So they have makeup sex.

The story, such as it is, consumes barely two minutes, so there is 31 minutes of sex. That makes this a very long scene, so it needs to be really good. And it is quite good. The sex is extremely natural and loving, and they are very convincing as a couple. There is a lot of kissing at the beginning, maybe six minutes, interspresed with their undressing and his sucking her tits. He is wonderfully attentive to her pleasure, and she does seem to enjoy herself. Still, a lot of the sequences seem to go on a bit longer than need be and might have been edited a bit. The doggy style fucking gets quite monotonous, for example. But she does cum—which is the only female orgasm in either of the two Trans Romantic movies.

The camera work is very good, and better than in the previous two scenes. There is a better mix of shots and a more intimate feel—though there are, again, a few more medical shots than we would prefer.

Synopsis

They kiss as he lies over her, and her pulls down her camisole and sucks her tits. He then kneels up and undoes his pants as they continue to kiss. He kneels at the edge of the bed as she kneels on it and sucks her tits, taking off her panties and then her camisole as well. They kiss again, and he sucks her tits, then stands up, and she pulls down his shorts and strokes his cock. He reaches down and strokes her cock, as well, which is hard.

He leans over and starts sucking her cock as she reclines on the bed. He then asks her to lie back, and he kisses her legs, then sucks her again, taking her (small) cock all the way into his mouth. She thrusts up into his mouth a bit, and he then goes up to suck her tits as she rubs their cocks together.

He kneels up and presses himself into her as she reaches down and strokes her cock. He starts fucking her slowly, and she rubs her cock until he lies over her and starts kissing her. They switch to spooning, and she turns back to kiss him as he reaches around to touch her cock. They then switch to doggy style.

She rolls onto her back and he sucks her cock again, then re-enters her, kneeling over her. She reaches between them and masturbates her cock as he leans over to kiss her, and we think she cums at about 30:10, but without ejaculating very much. He pulls out and cums on her cock.
