Four vignettes, all "romantic" scenes involving lesbian couples.

The stories are all very sweet, and the sex is romantic and loving. We really appreciated the way the relationships between the women were made the focus, and all the performers did a good job carrying the stories into the sex. But, overall, the sex just wasn't as "hot" as we would have liked. The first scene, with Mia Malkova and Shyla Jennings, is fantastic, and the second, with Penny Pax and Riley Reid, is very good, too, except for the fact that it is just too long. The last scene is also pretty good, though it also may be a bit long. But the third scene feels very restrained. We had the sense that many of the performers were kind of holding themselves back. This is meant to be a "romance" movie, which in practice means that the sex has to be a bit more vanilla than the performers themselves might prefer.

The camera work is overall pretty good, but it too is a bit mixed. There are more pornish angles than we would prefer, and the second scene contains more closeups than we would like, too.

So we thought this movie was promising, but it is not as good as the "lesbian" movies that Jacky St James did in the Tabu Tales line, for example, "A Mother Daughter Thing" and "Sisterly Love".

Scene 1: Mia Malkova and Shyla Jennings (♀♀)


Time: 24:54

Female Orgasm: Multiple

Features: 69, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Tribadism

Shyla and Mia have been together for six years, and now they can be married, legally. But Shyla is struggling with how to ask Mia, and then one thing and another interrupts her plans. Finally, though, she finds a way to ask her, and of course that leads to passionate lovemaking.

It's a very sweet story. It lasts about three and a half minutes, which leaves about 21 minutes for sex.

They do a bit, but not much, to continue the story into the scene. But there is an excellent sense of connection between them, and they communicate very well. The sex ends up feeling very passionate, and very natural, too.

The photography is very good. The focus is much more on Mia and Shyla as people than on their body parts. The camera moves very nicely between more intimate shots and wider, more voyeuristic ones.

Scene 2: Penny Pax and Riley Reid (♀♀)


Time: 36:28

Female Orgasm: Multiple

Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Footjob

Erin (Penny Pax) is about to leave for Europe, and before she leaves she wants to tell her roommate Kim (Riley Reid) about her true feelings for her. She does finally tell her, and Kim runs off to get a card that she gives to Erin, in which she also confesses her love. So, well, you know what happens next.

The story lasts a little less than four minutes, which leaves 32 minutes for sex. There is a lot of kissing and foreplay, and the sex is quite varied. But in the end, it does feel as if it is a bit too long.

They do a great job carrying the story into the scene, which makes it feel all the more realistic and passionate. And they are very cute together: loving yet sexy, and clearly enjoying themselves.

The camera work is again very good, but there are more closeups here than in the first scene. The camera angles are also a bit more pornish. But there are a lot of wider shots, too.

Scene 3: Jenna Sativa and Kenna James (♀♀)


Time: 21:26

Female Orgasm: Maybe

Features: Analingus, Dildo

Pleasure ♀, Passion ✓, Balance

It started as a one-night stand but became a regular booty call, and now Kenna has expressed interest in a relationship. But Jenna is not "out", and she is worried about how her parents will react. But Kenna says just the right thing, Jenna agrees to go on a "date" with her, and so they have sex again.

The story lasts almost four minutes, so there is about 17 minutes of sex. The sex is reasonably natural, but it isn't terribly passionate. They make some pretty creative use of a dildo, but, while they do seem to enjoy themselves, we're not sure either of them gets very close to orgasm.

The camera work is similar to that in the second scene, though a bit better. It's good, but there are more pornish angles than we'd prefer.

Scene 4: Kleio Valentien and Skin Diamond (♀♀)


Time: 29:13

Female Orgasm: Multiple

Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Vibrator

Pleasure ♀, Passion ✓, Balance

Kleio and Skin lived together for three years, but now their relationship has ended, in large part because Skin would never tell Kleio how she felt about her. "If only", she thinks, and then imagines how things might have been different—and, sadly, she seems to know how much it would have meant to Kleio.

The story last about four minutes, so there is about 25 minutes for sex. They really do a great job carrying the story into the sex, but the sex just never felt quite as passionate to us as we wanted. It's not unnatural, but it does feel restrained, as if they'd prefer to be doing something a bit wilder. But it gets hotter toward the end, especially once they get out the Orgasmatron Hitachi. The very last bit, where they put it between them, is very hot indeed.

The camera work is similar to that in the third scene.
