Review

Jess (Sicilia) has had her boyfriend cheat on her with her best friend, so she has left her hometown and moved to London, and moved into a flat with four other people. The movie tells the story of her experience there. Really, though, this is just a collection of five vignettes with a common thread. There is not much to the story.

The introductory sequence, during which Jess tells us about how her boyfriend cheated on her, and she moved to London, is repeated five times, once at the beginning of each scene. So are the titles. So it feels as if perhaps these were orignally produced as five separate scenes, that were then compiled into a movie, but we do not know.

The sex scenes are on the shorter side, around 15 minutes each, which is good, really. It's enough time for them to build some momentum, but not so long that they start to feel monotonous. The challenge with such scenes is that they can start to feel choppy, but for the most part—the exception is the last scene—that is avoided here. The scenes develop in a natural way.

The best of the five scenes is the fourth, with Adreena Winters and Peter Oh Tool. The sex is extremely playful, and they both seem to have a great time. The first and third scenes are also very good. The first is an FFM threesome, and again there is a wonderful sense of play and fun. The third features Jess hooking up with the rock star (Sean) who owns the place. We have seen these two together before, in the XConfessions video "Obsession", and it is obvious that there is a real spark between them.

Another thing we appreciated about this movie is that, while all the performers are attractive, they also seem very much like real people. Many of them have a boy- or girl-next-door sort of look, which we found very sexy and that made it easier for us to relate to the characters.

One minor complaint we had is that all four hetero scenes end exactly the same way, with the guy pulling out and cumming on his partner's stomach while she masturbates him. Maybe that's just some kind of weird accident, but a little variation would have been nice.

Overall, then, we enjoyed this movie quite a bit.

Scene 1: Anna Darling, Satine Spark, and Ryan Ryder (♀♀♂)

★★★★½

Time: 15:00

Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Ollie (Ryan Ryder), Saskia (Satine Spark), and Jess (Sicilia) went out to a bar, and Saskia started flirting with a woman (Anna Darling) there. They bring her home, and Ollie, Saskia, and she start playing spin the bottle, then end up having sex, while Jess watches them.

The acting during this scene is really good, as they all stay in role. That makes the sex feel very natural. It's more playful than passionate, but they are having so much fun that it is very sexy. They all seem to have quite a good time, though Anna never seems very near orgasm.

The camera work is very, very good. There are some close-ups from time to time, but they are nicely balanced by wider shots. He is occasionally out of frame, but not much more so, really, than the women are, though certainly they are a bit more of the focus than he is. But the variety of shots makes the scene interesting to watch, and there are some terrific shots here and there, as well.

Scene 2: Domestic Bliss (Chessie Kay and Luke Hotrod, ♀♂)

★★★½☆

Time: 15:00

Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

Billy (Luke Hotrod) is working from home, and his girlfriend Annalise (Chessie Kay) has decided to distract him.

They again do a terrific job staying in role during the scene. We liked how they talked to each other throughout, in a very affectionate way. But the sex felt a bit routine. Not planned but, to be honest, the sort of not very exciting sex you might imagine (or maybe worry) a long-time couple might have. It doesn't help that she seems to overdo the moaning a bit. As a result, the scene just seemed to go on too long. So it's not bad, but it isn't great, either.

The camera work is pretty good, but not as good as in the first scene. There are a more close-ups here, and the shots just aren't quite as interesting.

Scene 3: Kindness to Strangers (Sicilia and Sean, ♀♂)

★★★★½

Time: 16:00

Cumshot: Stomach

Features: Analingus, Footjob

Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance

Jess has sex with her new obsession, the rock star, and owner of her house, Bradley Michaels.

The sex here is very natural, but maybe not as passionate as one would expect it to be from the story. Still, there is very good chemistry between them, and they seem to enjoy having sex together. Though she never seems very near orgasm, she seems quite aroused throughout much of the scene. That's certainly better than a badly faked orgasm.

The camera work in this scene is once again excellent. There is a wonderful variety to the shots, and the entire scene has an intimate feel.

Scene 4: Spring Cleaning (Adreena Winters and Peter Oh Tool, ♀♂)

★★★★★

Time: 16:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach

Features: 69, Cunnilingus Orgasm

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

The woman who cleans the house (Adreena Winters) has a random fling with Bradley's drummer Miles (Peter Oh Tool).

The sex is again more playful than passionate, but they both seem to have a very good time playing. There is excellent chemistry between them, and the sex is really natural. They are very tender with each other, too. We loved how, when she started to get close to cumming as they fucked, he pulled out suddenly and went down on her, bringing her all the way to orgasm with his mouth. The only thing we might have liked better is if there was more kissing.

The camera work is again quite interesting, though there are some minor continuity issues. There are also a few more shots that we'd categorize as 'pornish'. But we do see a fair bit of him, and the overall feel is very well balanced.

Scene 5: Home Improvement (Sicilia and Satine Spark, ♀♀)

★★★★☆

Time: 15:30

Female Orgasm: Multiple

Features: 69, Mutual Masturbation

Pleasure ♀, Passion

Jess (Sicilia) is depressed, because nothing more has happened between her and Bradley. Saskia (Satine Spark) decides to try to cheer her up, and they spend an evening together, talking and drinking wine. As they do, Jess realizes her attraction to Saskia, whom she'd earlier seen in a threesome with another woman. So, when Saskia heads up to bed, Jess follows her, crawls on the bed, and kisses her.

The sex here feels reasonably natural, but it is not as playful as we would have expected it to be—or, on the other end, as passionate. There is pretty good chemistry between them, but somehow the scene just never seemed to us to take off. We did, though, really enjoy the sequence where they wach each other masturbate.

The camera work is very, very good. There is an excellent mix of closer and wider shots, but there are also some very abrupt edits, which distracted from the sense of realism.
