Review

This is a collection of some of Erika Lust's earliest films. It seems almost unfair to review this now. There's a lot more promise here than there is achievement, and of course we know now that this promise would be realized before long. Lust has since, of course, become a feminist porn legend.
The dialog is dubbed in the first, second, and fifth, with all the problems that brings, especially during the sex scenes. And, as the more detailed reviews below will explain, we found the first and second scenes a bit unsatisfying. But the third, "Married with Children", with Julia Taylor and Ramon Nomar, is a wonderful little story of a couple who, once a week, escape from their domestic life together to have wild, kinky sex at a hotel. And the fourth, "To Be Or Not To Be a Good Girl", is even better. This is an extended version of Lust's first sexually explicit film, "The Good Girl", which was released for free on the web (under a Creative Commons licence) in 2004. The story parts are pretty much the same, but there is more sex here, and it's just excellent. The moment where Alex drops her towel, then waits for her soon-to-be lover's reaction, is amazing.
So, well, it's a mixed bag. But if you have never seen "The Good Girl", you really must.

Scene 1: Nadia and the Women (Sandra G, Lady Mai, and Bobbi Eden, ♀♀)

★★★½☆
Time: 21:20
Features: 69, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Orgasm
A story of three women, all obsessed with Nadia. They have all met her in different settings—the beach, the sex toy shop where she works, the subway—but all have found her irresistable. And then each of them, after a long seduction, finds themselves invited to Nadia's apartment. We only see the first of these women have sex with Nadia, but the implication is that the others did, too.
The sex itself is fairly inexplicit, as porn goes, much less explicit than in Lust's later movies. We also found the music distracting: It completely obscures any sound the women might make. That, and the dance-like quality of the sex, made it hard to identify, however fleetingly, with the performers and to have any real sense for what they might be feeling. In the end, then, we really didn't find it to be all that hot, though it is visually quite beautiful.
The camera work, as one would expect, is very good. There are all kinds of angles and views, which gives us a very good sense for people, and not just body parts, having sex.

Scene 2: Fuck You, Carlos (Sonia Baby, Eduardo Romo, Rafa Garcia, Nacho Coralini, and Karnya, ♀♂♂)

★★★½☆
Time: 22:05 (Sex: 12:00)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ♀
Carlos is a famous soccer player who has a habit of cheating on his wife, Sonia, who has now caught him in bed with another woman. So, to celebrate the end of their marriage, she arranges a big party where she has sex with two players from his team's arch-rival, and then posts the video on the internet.
We thought maybe a bit too much time was spent on the party itself, which didn't add a lot to the eroticism. But it's a very amusing premise, and a creative way for her to exact her revenge.
The sex is entirely orchestrated by Sonia, and much of it is focused on her pleasure, with the guys going down on her at the same time. But it never feels very passionate, and she never really seems very aroused. We suppose that is not the point, but it made it difficult for us to get into the scene.
The camera work is very good, again as one would expect.

Scene 3: Married With Children (Julia Taylor and Ramon Nomar, ♀♂)

★★★★½
Time: 26:21 (Sex: 19:00)
Features: Bondage, Orgasm, Spanking
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
Frank is trying very hard to interest his wife in sex, but it is not going very well, partly due to their young children. One night, though, they get a babysitter, and she goes to a secret hideaway, where she is transformed into a submissive. He arrives, masked, some time later, as her dominant. It is a game they play once a week.
It's a very sexy story, and one that throws an interesting twist on what comes before. It's a nice portrait of BDSM as a loving interaction.
The sex itself is very hot, as well. She seems very aroused throughout much of the scene, and there is an obvious connection between them, with the sex flowing very naturally.
The camera work is the best of any of the scenes so far in this movie. It is more varied, and more interesting, while also feeling more intimate. And the music, while a bit typical-pornish, at least isn't so loud that it obscures their sounds.
Synopsis
He spanks her, first with his hand and then with a paddle, then stands up and has her suck his cock. He orders her onto the bed, on all fours, and slaps her ass again, then binds her hands behind her back and spanks her with a strap, pulling on her neck with a leash. He puts a finger into her, then another, then kneels up and, taking off his clothes, puts himself into her from behind, and spanks her with a paddle while fucking her.
He unbinds her hands and turns her over, then pushes her legs back and goes down on her. He takes off her bustier and squeezes her tits roughly, then kneels up and fucks her again. She dares to say something, so he silences her with a ball gag, then switches positions so she is squatting over him, reverse, and he removes the gag after a while.
They turn over again, and he fucks her hard, then harder, at her request, and she cums, which he reminds her he had not told her should could do. He then rolls her onto her side and fucks her from behind, pulling out and cumming on her hip.
He wipes a bit of his cum onto his finger and goes as if to feed it to her, then licks his finger himself and kisses her.

Scene 4: To Be or Not To Be a Good Girl (Claudia Claire and Lucas Foz, ♀♂)

★★★★½
Time: 30:47
Features: Analingus, Facial, Orgasm
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
This is a longer version of Erika Lust's first film, "The Good Girl", which she released for free on the internet in 2004 under a Creative Commons License. As she describes in her TedX talk, the movie was a huge sensation, which launched her career.
There is a somewhat ironic aspect to the story: On the surface, it's a standard "horny girl fucks the pizza delivery guy" porn plot. But, of course, it's not really that.
Alex (Claudia Claire) has a friend Julie (actress not credited) who is extremely sexually adventurous. She is always sharing her stories with Alex, who has been much less adventurous, but who often dreams of doing something a "good girl" would not. So, one night after she has been on the phone with Julie, she orders a pizza and hops into the shower—only to be not quite done when the pizza arrives. She asks him to come into her apartment while she looks for the money, accidentally letting her towel slip, and then shows him out, only then to slink down in disappointment. When he returns, though, to retrieve his forgotten helmet, she gathers the courage to drop her towel and invite him to her bed.
The sex is natural and passionate. They do go through quite a few positions, which can seem quite pornish, but it does not here.
As one would expect, the film is beautifully shot. The subtlety of some of Lust's later work is missing, and, as I have seen others say, it is sometimes edited too jerkily. But it is intimate without being intrusive, and it conveys a real sense for their passion.
As I side note, Lucas Foz performed almost exclusively in gay porn. This is one of only three straight movies he made, and the other two are fetish films.
Synopsis
They kiss and caress for some time on her bed, and he takes off his shirt. He kisses her all over her body, she tells us, then finds his way to her pussy. He then rolls her onto her side and kisses her ass, then starts to lick her anus, which shocks her. But his kind reaction lets her settle back into what they are doing, and she starts to enjoy that activity.
She rolls him onto his back and unbuckles his pants, grinding against his cock through his shorts. They have a quick disagreement about whether the light should stay on, as she feels a bit self-conscious. But then she decides to imagine that she is Julie, and to do what she would do: rip off his shorts (almost), take his cock into her mouth, and suck him with enthusiasm.
"Now, fuck me", she says, and he rolls them over and does as she demanded. They start slowly, her legs pulled back, and then she rolls them over and rides him. He sits up with her and tosses her onto her back, kneeling over her, then leaning over to kiss her; then they roll onto their sides and fuck face-to-face before he turns her around so they are spooning. He then rolls onto his back, so she is lying on top of him on hers, and he raches down and rubs her clit. She squats up and over him, leaning back onto his chest, and they thrust at each other.
She lies on her stomach, and he lies over her and fucks her from behind. They then stand up on the bed, and he lifts one of her legs as she leans against the wall, re-entering her. She turns around, and then they fall onto the bed together, back into a spooning position. She cums hard, quivering, as he fucks her from behind. He then straddles her chest, and she tells him, "I want you to cum in my face like in porn movies!" Which he does.
He leans down and kisses her, and then they cuddle...and introduce themselves.

Scene 5: I Love You, I Hate You (Anthony Martinez and Daniel Royter, ⚣)

U☆N☆R
Time: 10:30
Features: Anal
Things are apparently not going so well between these two lovers, who are having a big fight, partly because of Miguel's having an affair. It almost gets violent, but then they fall onto the couch and start kissing.
To be honest, we don't really feel competent to rate this scene. Gay male sex isn't our thing, at least not in this form. We do appreciate the way Erika Lust shoots it, though, and also her willingness to include gay male sex at all in this movie.
That said, the over-dubbing is really bad. We obviously can't know, but we expect that the emotion would have come through more clearly had sub-titles been used, and we expect that would have been a better choice for other reasons, too.
