As usual with the Erotica X "movies", this one consists of four vignettes. And as with the earlier Sensual Moments 1, these all have a fairly sensual, loving feel.
There is one fantastic scene here: the first, with Emma Stoned and James Deen. It's great for the simple reason that Deen takes such obvious joy in pleasuring his partner. We loved how he masturbated her while holding her, and how long he did it before going down on her. She seems to reach quite amazing levels of arousal and has at least four or five orgasms. The kissing at the end is great, too.
The second scene, with Valentina Nappi and Danny Mountain, is also very good. We join them as they make love in their bed in the morning. We really liked how active she was. She fucks him at least as much as he fucks her. And none of that makes the sex feel any less loving. The fourth, with Aidra Fox and Seth Gamble,
The fourth scene, with Aidra Fox and Seth Gamble, is also pretty good. There is decent chemistry between them, but the sex just never felt terribly passionate, and there were some issues with the camera work. It isn't bad, but it just isn't as good as we have come to expect from Mason.
The third scene, with Dakota Skye and Michael Vegas, was a bit of a disappointment. We love these two. Dakota is amazingly cute, and Michael is devastatingly handsome in that boyish sort of way—as well as a caring, skillful lover. So we were really looking forward to this scene. The sex is actually pretty good. She is very natural, rubbing or at least holding her pussy almost the entire time they are fucking. The problem is with the camera work, which is not very good at all. Once they start fucking, we see so little of him that it's almost as if we are watching her have sex with no-one in particular.
As we've said, there are some serious issues with the camera work in the third scene. But in the first and second scenes, and for the most part in the fourth scene, there is great balance between wider and closer shots, and what close-ups there are don't make it feel like there are just bodies fucking, but augment the sense of what the people are doing. Towards the end, the camera often starts to focus too much on the woman's body, so her partner disappears, but there is far less of that sort of shot than one often sees.
Our main complaint, really, is that the stories that introduce the first and third scenes—there are no stories for the second and fourth scenes—are focused almost exclusively on the women. It's all very "male gaze". It's not that there is nothing here that a woman might enjoy, but we didn't find it very welcoming and often felt like we should just skip over that part.
(This was written before the revelations about Deen's behavior. But we continue to believe studios should not be punished for working with him before that.)
Scene 1: Ocean's Edge (Emma Stoned and James Deen, ⚤)
Features: Deepthroat, Handjob, Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
She is walking along the beach below the cliffs (a very California scene) and playing at the edge of the water. After five minutes or so, this comes to an end, and she and James are somewhere else, kissing. This leaves about 28 minutes for sex.
The beginning is way too "male gaze" for our tastes. It's not impossible for a female viewer to enjoy it, but it doesn't really offer much to women. The whole thing feels a bit overdone—and the top of her bikini doesn't seem to fit very well, either. OK, that was snarky. (We actually love her athletic body, not to mention her 'girl next door' looks.) But seriously: What is the point? We basically recommend skipping to 4:40 or so.
Why? Because the sex is fantastic. Why? Two words: James Deen. What other guy in (hetero) porn takes so much pleasure in pleasuring his partner? And damn if he doesn't know how to do it. No offense to all the other men out there, but seriously: Watch and learn. If there were a pussy-eating event at the Olympics, he'd be the gold medal favorite.
Here's another thing to know: It's almost 18 minutes into the scene before his pants come off. It's over 20 minutes before they start fucking. That all makes what is a very long scene not seem that way at all. We often find the 'foreplay' to be more interesting to watch.
The camera work is great. Even when she is sucking him, we see a lot of his face, and there is no need for us to make our usual complaint about what happens when they start fucking. There are a few such issues toward the end, though.
They kiss, kneeling, on a mattress on the floor. He kisses her neck and chest, then lies her back and continues kissing her. He pulls down her top and sucks her tits, then lies next to her and strokes her torso while kissing her.
He undoes her bottoms, which leaves her naked, and strokes her pussy while sucking on her tits and kissing her. She reaches down and grabs his cock through his jeans, and he then pulls off his shirt and lies over her, still rubbing her pussy. He sits back on the bed, pulling her with him, so he is cuddling her from behind, and he is still rubbing her clit. She cums hard at about 11:15 and then again at about 11:50, or so we thought.
She turns around and kisses him, then pushes him back on the bed and lies over him. He sucks her tits, then rolls them over and makes his way down her body to her pussy, which he commences to lick and suck. She is quickly back at the verge of orgasm, but she does not quite seem to get there.
He lies on his back and, finally, sheds his pants. She gets between his legs and sucks him, taking him almost all the way into her mouth. She then lies on her side, and he gets behind her for spooning. He reaches down and rubs her clit, and she cums hard, again, at about 22:55.
They continue fucking, and he stares deeply into her eyes as they do. He reaches down and rubs her clit again, and she seems to be on another planet, completely lost in overwhelming sensation. He then pulls her up on top of him, so she is lying along his chest. She reaches down and rubs her clit as he thrusts into her, and she cums yet again, and explosively, at about 27:00.
He tosses her onto her back—she's a quivering lump of ecstasy at this point—then kisses her pussy and gets on his knees in front of her. He slows and lies over her to kiss her, then speeds up again. He reaches down and rubs her clit, and she has yet another orgasm at about 30:50.
He kneels up again, and she starts rubbing her pussy, with his encouragement. He pulls out, and she strokes him until he cums on her stomach.
He lies over her, and they kiss. A lot.
Scene 2: An Early Embrace (Valentina Nappi and Danny Mountain, ⚤)
Features: Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
Couple make love upon waking. There is no otherwise backstory at all, unusually for these videos.
To be honest, we did miss the story. Who are these people? What is their relationship? Are they partners? Or is this the morning after? Is it the beginning of something new? Or just something memorable? There is very good chemistry between them, though, and we loved how active she is. Really, she fucks him a lot more than he fucks her. And she does get her fill of orgasms.
Overall, the camera work is excellent. There are some very creative shots, with the camera behind a curtain that is blowing in the breeze, which keeps obscuring our two lovers, as if we were watching from a distance. We also loved the closeups of their faces as they fuck, and of their hands, held tightly together. But we do lose him when they are fucking doggy style and in the sequence afterwards, when she is on her back. At least some wider shots would have been welcome.
Honestly, we could have rated this scene five stars, but we felt the camera work held it back a bit, and it may have gone on slightly too long.
They awake, holding hands, in bed, naked. They kiss as he strokes her body, especially her breasts. He runs his hands over her torso, sensually, then leans over to suck her tits. He teases her pussy with his cock, then slips himself into her as she lies on her back, and he lies next to her, and they fuck slow then fast.
They roll over, so she is atop him, and she slides down his body and sucks his balls, then his cock, all while holding one of his hands. She then climbs on top of him, lowers herself onto him, and thrusts at him with her hips. He whipsers encouragement into her ear as she approaches orgasm, and she cums hard at about 13:10, going quite still as he takes over the movement. He reaches around and rubs her anus, and she then starts thrusting again as she kisses him hard. She squats over him, and they trade active and receptive roles. She sits up and rocks onto him hard, and she cums again at about 16:55.
She pauses, then gets back atop him on her knees and goes at him some more. (Well done by him to last through such a thrashing.) She cums yet again at about 19:00, or at least has a minigasm.
Someone needed a break at this point, unsurprisingly.
We next see her on all fours, with him licking her ass while stroking her pussy. He kneels up behind her and fucks her doggy style, then eats her pussy again as she lies on her back with her legs spread wide. He kneels up and re-enters her, leaning over to look into her eyes. He pulls out and cums on her stomach, shooting up onto her tits.
Scene 3: Softly She Moves (Dakota Skye and Michael Vegas, ⚤)
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ✓
We love both of these performers, but we found this scene a bit disappointing. The first 4:15 consists of her writhing for unknown reasons in panties and a sweater. It's very male gaze, so we skipped it.
There is very nice chemistry between them, though, and the sex is quite passionate. We like the fact that she rubs or at least holds her clit almost the entire time he is fucking her. If that's what does it for her, why not? She has at least two orgasms that way. She is very loud, which is a bit disracting, but we have seen of her enough to know that this is just how she is.
The problem with this scene is the camera work. We see very little of him once they start fucking, and there are too many closeups then, too.
They kiss on the bed, with her in panties and him in jeans and a shirt. He kisses her tits, and they take off his shirt. He pulls her up onto his lap, and they kiss, and he then pushes her back onto the bed, gets between her legs, and kisses her pussy through her panties. He then takes them off and goes down on her, adding a finger and then another. He clamps his mouth on her vulva, and she cums at about 8:25.
He goes back at her pussy a bit, and he then lies on his back, and she sucks him. They start fucking spooning, and she reaches down and touches her clit. She cums at about 11:45.
She rolls onto her back, and he kneels up in front of her and re-enters her. She rolls onto all fours, and he licks her from behind, then fucks her doggy style. She gets astride him on her knees for a bit, and he thrusts hard up into her as she lies over him. He picks her up and lies her on her back, kneeling over her again. She reaches down to hold her clit again, and she cums at about 21:40. He pulls out and cums on her stomach.
Scene 4: An Affair in the Hills (Aidra Fox and Seth Gamble, ⚤)
Features: Deepthroat, Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ✓
Couple make love for no particular reason. Which, of course, is fine, though, as we said with the second scene, we do like having at least a little bit of story to set the scene. One might nonetheless think of the first five minutes or so as a kind of introductory sequence, so the sex really only lasts about 24 minutes.
And the sex is pretty good. There is very good chemistry between them, and they both seem to have a very nice time. There isn't as much passion as we would have liked at the beginning, but the spoon-like position seems to work very well for her, and they stay with that position a long time for that reason. Overall, though, it felt to us as if the scene went on a bit long, without enough variation.
The camera work at the beginning is really terrific: very intimate and close. But we do not see much of him when she is sucking him. There are several shots, for example, where her whole body is in frame, but he is only in frame from his stomach to his toes, so we do not see his face. This is all much better in the spoon-like position, but we have the same problem when he is atop her.
She is wandering around in lingerie and looking out the window when he comes up behind her and strokes her back. She turns, and they kiss, and she reaches down and strokes his cock through his pants. He lowers her top and sucks her tits, and she takes off his shirt. He reaches into her panties and strokes her pussy, and she undoes his pants enough to get her hand into them.
They move to a mattress on the floor—how convenient—and she kisses his stomach. He lies back on the bed, and she lies over him and kisses him, then works her way down his body, pulls his pants off, and sucks his cock. He sits up and reaches over to stroke her ass, then flops her onto her back and goes down on her, pulling her bottoms aside. He puts a finger into her, then another, and another.
He falls onto his back, and she gets astride him on her knees. Her bottoms are in the way, so she gets off him and they quickly pull them off, and she gets back on top of him and rides his cock. She holds still, and he thrusts hard into her, and she falls atop him, holding him, and probably cumming once or twice.
She gets off him and lies on her back, and he lies beside her and re-enters her while reaching down to rubs her clit, which she does as well. She seems to cum in here a few more times, though it is hard to tell exactly when.
He gets atop her, and they fuck harder, with him leaning over to kiss her from time to time. She reaches down and strokes herself to an orgasm, and he leans over and gazes into her eyes as he keeps pumping her. He then pulls out and cums on her stomach, shooting up onto her tits.
