Review

Jane (Sienna Day) and Tom (Max Deeds) have gone away for a romantic weekend, to try to rekindle the flame. Their car breaks down, and they seek help at a nearby house. Stella (Amber Nevada) and Bill (Ryan Ryder) are on their way to a swingers party, for which they just happen to have two extra tickets. They invite Jane and Tom to go with them, and they do, but not before having sex in an upstairs bedroom. The rest of the story concerns what happens at the party.

As with the other movies from Joy Bear we have seen, there really is not much to the story. No more than about 10 minutes is actually spent on it. So this is really more like a series of connected vignettes, and it has to be judged almost entirely on the quality of the sex scenes. We did appreciate, though, how it was the men who turned out to be the most nervous.

The sex scenes are somewhat mixed. In the last two, the sex feels quite routine, though it's not so passionless as to feel performed. There are two very good ones, though. The way Stella takes the initiative in the second scene is terrific, and the third (Ava Austen, Carly Rae, Luke Hotrod) is one of the rare porn threesomes that actually works. Our main complaint with all of the scenes concerns the camera work. It is not bad, but, as with the other JoyBear movies we have seen, the men are very often out of frame once the fucking starts.

We also thought the sex scenes ended too abruptly. It would have been nice, for example, to see Emma and Jonathan reunited at the end of the fourth scene, perhaps with her giving him a sly, teasing look, or something like that, and perhaps with some later indication of where she would get hers. And it would really have been nice had Jane and Tom has some kind of discussion of their first swinging experience, so that we might have some sense of how they felt about it.

Overall, then, we did like this movie, but the mediocre quality of the last two sex scenes was a bit of a let-down.

Scene 1: Diversion Ahead (Sienna Day and Max Deeds, ♀♂)

★★★★☆

Time: 16:00

Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: Ass

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

Jane (Sienna Day) and Tom (Max Deeds) have sex before going to the swingers party.

There is decent chemistry between them, but the sex is predictable and not terribly passionate. We suppose one could think that was part of the story: Maybe they really do need to rekindle the flame.

The camera work is pretty good. There are relatively few genital closeups, but he is often out of frame once they start fucking. Ee did not find the shot from behind him, when he is on top of her, terribly sexy. And there is a similar shot from behind here, when she is on top. We find it much more appealing to see them from the side in these positions.

Scene 2: The U-Turn (Amber Nevada and Ryan Ryder, ♀♂)

★★★★½

Time: 18:00

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Pussy

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

The swingers party is making Bill (Luke Hotrod) nervous, so he asks Stella if they can't just leave. She instead drags him upstairs to a bedroom and fucks him.

The sex is much more passionate than in the first scene. We liked her initiative, and both of them clearly enjoy themselves. There's not a huge amount of variety, but there is enough. And we really liked how he encouraged her as she approached orgasm, then held her as she came. It was really cute, too, how she giggled as he finished eating her.

The camera work in this scene was merely all right. When she is atop him reverse, the shot is from in front of her almost the whole time, so we barely see him. It is better when she is on her back, though, and there is a very nice shot from behind his head that shows both their faces. But there are several very abrupt edits that had us feeling like we needed to figure out what had happened exactly.

Scene 3: Mixing Things Up (Ava Austen, Carly Rae, and Luke Hotrod, ♀♀♂)

★★★★½

Time: 18:00

Female Orgasm: Maybe, Cumshot: Tits, Handjob

Features: Handjob

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

Jane and Tom take a break together in the bathroom and then, as they emerge, see two women (Ava Austen and Carly Rae) making out on the staircase. Jane kneels down and rubs Tom's cock through his pants as they watch, and eventually a guy (Luke Hotrod) joins them.

As we've often said, threesomes can be dangerous in porn, but this one is pretty good. There's good chemistry among them, and the women are as interested in each other as they are in him. The sex is very natural, and even a bit creative at times, and we enjoyed how active the women both were. Only Carly seems to cum, though, and we are not sure she does, but they still both seem to enjoy themselves a great deal whether they're having orgasms or not.

The camera work is once again good but not great. When Luke is fucking Carly and she is eating Ava, the women are both in frame, but he is out of it. The same is true when he and Ava start fucking.

Scene 4: Good Things Come To Those Who Wait (Lola Gatsby and Dean Van Damme, ♀♂)

★★★½☆

Time: 17:00

Cumshot: Pussy

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

Emma and Jonathan (Dean Van Damme) seem to need a bit of help, so Lola asks them to join her. Emma and Lola make out a bit at the top of a staircase, and Emma undresses her, then pats her ass and leaves her to Jonathan, remaining on the stairs herself to watch.

Unfortunately, the sex here feels completely routine. There is no sense of real passion between them, which does not fit the story at all. They do both seem to enjoy themselves at least somewhat, but she never seems very near orgasm.

The camera work is similar to that in previous scenes. He is out of frame too often when they are fucking, but we did really like the shots from Emma's point of view. It would have been really nice if she had masturbated or something, at least lightly and distractedly.

Scene 5: The Quiet Ones (Emma Leigh, Sienna Day, Alexei Jackson, and Max Deeds, ♀♀♂♂)

★★★½☆

Time: 17:00

Cumshot: Tits, Ass

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

Jane and Tom are approached by another couple, Georgina (Emma Leigh) and Augustus (Alexei Jackson), who are experienced swingers. Georgina sits next to Tom and kisses him, and Augustus does the same with Jane.

Sadly, the sex again feels very routine. There is not nearly as much passion and excitement as you would expect from Jane and Tom, who are supposed to be having their first swinging experience. There's also very little connection between Jane and Tom, when you would, again, have expected them to talk to each other, or at least look at each other. The "hotwife" movies that Jacky St James has done get this part right, whatever their other flaws.

There ought to have been more preparation for Jane's experience with Georgina, too. Is this her first time with another woman? Or is she more experienced? We also didn't care for how the women stop paying attention to each other the moment the men show up. So we thought there were a lot of missed opportunities here to do something a bit different from the norm.

The camera work is not as good as in the other scenes. THe men are very often out of frame, and the angles (such as from behind Augustus when he and Jane are fucking doggy style) were not very appealing to us.
