Emily (Tori Black) is still grieving, a year and a half after her husband Brian (Rocco Reed) died, and she is haunted by his memory. Her friend Sasha (Lexi Belle) decides to help by inviting her best friend Bobby (Johnny Castle) and his new friend Tommy (Danny Mountain) over for a pool party. Astonishingly (irony alert), two new couples form, and they all have sex.
This was the first of the story-based movies from New Sensations Romance, and that shows a bit. The story is miminal and cheezy, the acting is mediocre (at best), and the sex is pretty typical porn, minus the chichés most likely to annoy female viewers. Some attention is paid to making it at least seem as if the women are enjoying themselves, but there's not much here by way of authentic female pleasure, and there's not all that much pleasure period, to be honest. So it was maybe worth seeing once, but we'd not watch it again.
One difference between this and really good feminist porn is well illustrated by the last scene. Tori rubs herself quite hard while Danny is fucking her, and she seems to get quite close to cumming. But she never does get there. In other movies, her partner would make sure she did, or at least would encourage her to keep at it until she did, and the director would care enough to include her orgasm in the scene.
There was a sequel, An Eternal Love 2: Reckless Heart.
Scene 1: Tori Black and Rocco Reed (♀♂)
In the first scene, Emily is dreaming of her now dead husband Brian. The shots are generally pretty wide, so one gets some sense of them as a couple, but he is not as much a focus as he should be, especially when she is on her back. She is a bit too vocal as well, and not in a convincing way.
It is not a terrible scene, but it is pretty generic, and she never seems very aroused.
Scene 2: Jasmine Delaton and Danny Mountain (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Faked (Badly), Cumshot: Pussy
The second scene is a sort of imagining that Emily has while watching Tommy by the pool with her sister Mimi (Jasmine Delaton). It starts sweetly, with him putting lotion on her body by the pool, but it devolves into pretty standard porno sex, complete with an obviously faked orgasm from her. That tells you most of what you really need to know about this scene. The rest is that he is in complete control, dictating all the position switches. So there's very little sense of balance between them, and that is reflected in the camera work.
Scene 3: Lexi Belle and Johnny Castle (♀♂)
In the third scene, Bobby sees his long-time friend Sasha naked in the shower, then confesses his love for her. She comes out naked to meet him, and they have sex. It is fairly passionate, and it fits reasonably well into the story. And the sex is at least a little bit creative at the beginning, but we see too little of him once they start fucking. There could be a lot more communication, and passion, between these two long-time friends, as well.
Unfortunately, she never seems very aroused.
Scene 4: Tori Black and Danny Mountain (♀♂)
In the last scene, Emily and Tommy get together and have sex on a couch. There's some passion here, and they seem to be having a good time. But things move much too quickly, and it becomes predictable. The sex doesn't really fit the story, either. There's a lot more dirty talking than makes sense for two people having sex for the first (but not last) time.
And she, again, never seems very aroused.
