Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀-
Linda "Lefty" Lumaban (Dana Vespoli) is a successful boxer, so far undefeated, and Alexis Texas, playing herself, is her girlfriend. Now she has agreed to do another fight very soon after her last one, which does not necessarily make her coach, and father figure, Sully, happy. The day of that fight, though, he has a heart attack and dies—and she, very suddenly, retires, and vanishes.
Intrepid reporter Erin (Bree Daniels) decides to try to find Lefty and uncover her story. She gets an interview with Alexis Texas, after a stripshow, but has trouble finding Lefty herself until she gets a call from one of Lefty's old assistants. Erin eventually is able to talk to Lefty, and even tries to talk her into coming out of retirement, but she has no luck...or so she thinks. And she ends up with a great story when Lefty tells her some secrets from her past, and really opens up to her.
It is a really good story, as porn stories go, with more nuance than you might expect. And a good bit of time is spent on the story, nearly forty minutes. The acting is spotty. Alexis Texas should probably stick to fucking. But Bree Daniels and Julia Ann are both very good, as are some of the non-sex actors, for example, James Avalon, who makes a great boxing coach. The interview scene is especially good. And Dana Vespoli's performance is fantastic, with her award for Best Actress in an All-Girl release at the 2017 XBiz Awards being richly deserved. (The film itself was also nominated for All-Girl Release of the Year.)
As for the sex, the last scene, with Dana Vespoli and Bree Daniels, is excellent. It's intense, and yet it happens at a relaxed pace. The second scene, with Daniels and Julia Ann, is almost as good. It's really gentle at first, and they are very convincing as a couple. The first scene, with Vespoli and Alexis Texas, is also pretty good, but the third scene, with Texas, AJ Applegate, and Dani Daniels wasn't very good at all, and it felt a bit gratuitous in the context of the movie.
The camera work was very good throughout, and the sound problems we have often noted with Sweetheart Video, and Sweet Sinner, we largely absent.
Scene 1: Alexis Texas and Dana Vespoli (♀♀)
Features: 69, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
Lefty is lying on the bed when Alexis comes into the room and strips for her, then crawls on the bed herself, and the two of them proceed to make love.
The sex is reasonably natural and convincing. There's a good amount of kissing and talking, with plenty of mutual masturbation and cunnilingus. They seemed very much to be doing what they wanted to be doing. But we've always thought Texas overplayed her pleasure, and she does here, too. So, while they both seem to enjoy themselves—Alexis has several orgasms—there just isn't as much passion, or affection, as we would have liked.
Scene 2: Bree Daniels and Julia Ann (♀♀)
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
Erin has sex with her girlfriend, and apparently one-time teacher, Elena, on their bed.
We loved the gentleness at the beginning, and the great communication between them. It made them very convincing as a couple. The sex feels really natural, too, when it heats up, and it's passionate, even though it has a very relaxed pace. The teasing really had an effect on us. The very last sequence, where Elena finger-fucks Erin to several orgasms, is as intense as we remember seeing for a while.
Scene 3: A.J. Applegate, Alexis Texas, and Dani Daniels (♀♀)
Features: Analingus, Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms, Rough Sex
Pleasure ♀, Passion ✓
Lefty and Alexis are having a sort of "private show" with A.J. and Dani, when Lefty suggests that Alexis join them. That leads to her having sex with them while Lefty watches, at first, but she then just leaves.
The first few minutes are very dance-like, with loud music. We did not find that part terribly interesting, though it had something to say about Lefty. The sex that follows is not terrible. There are plenty of apparently genuine orgasms. But there's little sense of connection between these three, as well there might not be, given the story. As a result, it has a very pornish feel, as threesomes often do. It doesn't help that the whole scene just feels gratuitous in the context of the movie.
Scene 4: Bree Daniels and Dana Vespoli (♀♀)
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm, Multiple Female Orgasms, Tribadism
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀
When BB takes a break to go to the bathroom, Lefty suprises her, and kisses her.
The sex in this scene is a lot like that in the second scene. It's intense, and yet it happens at a relaxed pace. It's great proof that 'fast and hard' isn't the only form of passionate sex. Erin keeps Lefty right on the edge for a long time, and we really felt it when she reached out for Erin's hand, just as she was, finally, about to cum.
And it's a really great scene.
