Review

This is the first "lesbian" movie in the Wicked Passions series. And it is "all girl", as the usual sexist porn tag would have it. All the sex scenes involve women, and there is really only one guy in the entire movie.

The story revolves around problems that Jamie (Casey Calvert) is having coming to terms with her sexuality. She's recently realized she is a lesbian and is in her first relationship with a woman, Leslie (A.J. Applegate). But she hasn't told her parents yet, or anyone else, including her best friend Sarah. When Leslie threatens to leave unless she does, Jamie does tell her very conservative parents, who do not take it well, to say the least. So she goes to California to visit Sarah, where the rest of the story is told.

It is a sweet story, and the end is really touching. A fair bit of time is devoted to the story, too: about 30 minutes.

We definitely appreciate the effort to make a "lesbian" porno that is focused at least as much on relationships as on sex. In that way, this movie is way ahead of Hollywood. Other directors have been doing similar things in porn, though, and this movie does not probe nearly as deeply (heh heh) as Le Baiser.

The sex tends to be sensual and fairly gentle, as one would expect for this sort of movie, though there is quite a bit of analingus, which is less expected. There does seem to be some genuine attraction between the women, as well, but the sex is not as passionate as we would have liked. We also could have done with a bit more variety in the sex. The third scene, with Lily Cade and August Ames, does at least introduce a queer element, but it has other problems, unfortunately.

The big problem with this movie is that large parts of the second, third, and fourth scenes are repeated. We mean: The footage is literally recycled, so we see exactly the same thing more than once. We have of course seen this done in other pornos, but, to us, it is one of porn's worst technical sins. There are creative ways this sort of thing can be done—flashbacks, for example—but usually there seems to be no particular reason other than to pad the length of the movie, and that seems to be the case here. It makes very little sense, though, as the third and fourth scene would have been plenty long without the padding. The third, which has very little to do with the story, is really too long, anyway.

The acting is inconsistent, too. Very. There are times when it is quite good, and Casey Calvert and Scarlet Red are both terrific in the climactic scene. But there are other times that the acting is quite bad, such as when Jamie tells her parents she's gay.

Overall, then, we have mixed feelings about this movie. There are some very good things about it, and, as we said, we applaud the idea behind it. But the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

Scene 1: A.J. Applegate and Casey Calvert (⚢)

★★★★☆

Time: 10:00

Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀

Leslie (A.J. Applegate) is upset because Jamie (Casey Calvert) has not told her parents they are partners, so Jamie offers to show Leslie her birthday suit, to make her feel better.

The sex feels a bit restrained, though they do both seem to enjoy themselves. Some of the positions do not seem very effective for actual stimulation, though, but to be more for the camera.

But the camera work is generally very good, with a nice mix of different types of shots. There is a nasty technical glitch in this scene, however, with the camera moving suddenly in a way that makes no sense.

Synopsis

They kiss, and then Jamie takes off her pants and sits on the counter so Leslie can eat her pussy. Leslie puts a finger into her, and Jamie cums at about 5:50. Leslie stands up and they kiss again. Leslie then leans onto the counter, and Jamie takes off her pants and kisses her ass, then takes off her panties and goes down on her from behind, fingering her and licking her asshole.

They move to the floor and kiss again, and then Jamie lies on the floor, with Leslie squatting over her face. Jamie starts rubbing Leslie's clit while licking her entrance, and Leslie seems to cum at about 12:20 and then maybe again a bit later.

Scene 2: Casey Calvert and Sasha Heart (⚢)

★★★☆☆

Time: 9:00

Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀

Pam (Sasha Heart) and Jamie (Casey Calvert) have sex on Pam's bed after spending a day together.

The sex is reasonably natural, but it is not as passionate as we'd have expected it to be, given the story. Still, they do seem to enjoy having sex together, and there is plenty of genuine pleasure. Unfortunately, however, the scene is ruined for us by a straight replay of an entire sequence: where Pam is fingering and going down on Jamie. That sort of thing really makes it hard to suspend disbelief. It's too bad, because it is otherwise a very good scene.

The camera work is again very good.

Synopsis

Pam lies over Jamie and kisses her, licking her neck and chest. She gets Jamie naked, then gets between her legs and goes down on her. Pam puts a couple fingers into Jamie, licking and rubbing her clit. Pam then rolls Jamie onto all fours and tongues her anus while continuing to finger her. Jamie cums at about 35:35.

They switch positions, and Jamie fingers Pam from behind as she lies on her side. Pam cums hard, quivering, at about 37:00. She then fingers Jamie again as she reclines on the bed. Unfortunately, however, this sequence is just a repeat of the earlier one.

Scene 3: August Ames and Lily Cade (⚢)

★★★☆☆

Time: 20:00

Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm, Strap On

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ❌

Sarah goes to a lesbian bar and meets Angela (August Ames) and Lily (Lily Cade), then goes home with them. But she gets nervous and leaves, and so Angela and Lily have to have sex by themselves. It's actually very sweet how Angela reacts to Sarah's uncertainty.

The sex in this scene is more passionate than in the first two, and a bit more vigorous as well. But the scene is ruined for us by straight replays of two whole sequences: one where Angela is eating Lily and another where Lily is fucking her.

It is especially puzzling why these sequences needed to be repeated in this scene, since the entire scene is much longer than it needs to be, especially given how inessential it is to the plot. It really interrupts the story, and at a somewhat inconvenient time. If it is an attempt to sneak some queer porn into what is otherwise a pretty straight movie, then we welcome that, but, as we said, it could have been half the length.

The camera work is again very good, though.

Synopsis

They make out on the couch, and Lily sucks Angela's tits as she reclines. She gets between Angela's legs and goes down on her, then rises up and kisses her while fingering her pussy. Lily kneels up, and Angela takes off her pants and panties and sucks her tits, then makes her way to her pussy and eats her. Lily cums at about 54:45.

Angela then sits with her back to Lily, and Lily reaches around and rubs her pussy hard until she cums at about 56:20. Angela then goes down on Lily again, and Lily cums again.

Lily gets up and puts on a strap-on. She licks Angela's pussy a bit, then kneels up and enters her. Lily rolls Angela onto her back, and then they switch to spooning, then to doggy style, and Angela rolls onto her side again as Lily rubs her pussy. Angela says she is going to cum and does.

Scene 4: Casey Calvert and Scarlet Red (⚢)

★★★☆☆

Time: 15:00

Features: Analingus

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ❌

Sarah confesses to Jamie that she is in love with her, and Jamie tells her that she has been in love with her forever. They celebrate by having sex in the bathtub.

The sex is every bit as passionate, even desperate, as one would expect it to be. Unfortunately, however, parts of this scene get replayed as well. It once again really distracted us from what was happening, and it seemed to be completely unnecessary, too.

We'll say it one more time, though: The camera work is excellent.

Synopsis

Jamie takes off her clothes and gets into the tub with Sarah. They kiss, and Sarah reaches out to touch Jamie's breasts. Sarah leans back onto the edge of the tub and lifts her hips so Jamie can eat her pussy. Sarah then sinks back into the water, and Jamie lies back against her as Sarah rubs her clit, then kisses her neck and back.

Jamie gets onto all fours, lifting one leg over the edge of the tub, and Sarah licks her anus while fingering her. Jamie cums, then slips back into the water, and they kiss again.

Jamie then goes down on Sarah again—though this is a replay of an earlier part of the scene. Jamie then sits on the side of the tub, and Sarah goes down on her again.
