Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀-, Balance ♀
Courtney (Anna Morna) has been away for some time, and when she gets back, her friend James (Seth Gamble) picks her up at the airport. Shortly thereafter, there is a party to celebrate the publication of his book, and James ends up proposing to his girlfriend, which does not make Courtney very happy. What makes things worse is that her boyfriend has been sleeping with someone else, which she discovers when she goes home unexpectedly. The rest of the story concerns how James and Courtney sort out their feelings for one another, with a fairly predictable ending.
The acting is a bit inconsistent, especially at the beginning, and especially from Anna Morna. But it gets a lot better as the movie goes on, and the core part of the story, which follows the third sex scene, is very well done, with some really funny bits.
There are two really good sex scenes here, the first and the third, with very good camera work throughout. There is a weird kind of imbalance, thought. Much more time is spent on the first few scenes, which are less central to the story, than on the later ones. This made the end of the movie seem rushed. It's kind of ridiculous, in fact, how James's and Courtney's clothes just disappear in the final scene.
Overall, then, we did enjoy this movie, though we also had some issues with it.
Scene 1: Belle Noire and TJ Cummings (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Ass
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ♀
Guy has sex with his new girlfriend Carla (Belle Noire) while his not yet old one is at a party.
There is not a whole lot of passion between them at the beginning, and the sex feels somewhat restrained for a while. But there is a great sequence where he lies next to her, humping her leg as she masturbates to orgasm, and things continue to get better after that. So, in the end, the sex feels very loving and connected, and overall it's a terrific scene even if it does start off slowly.
The camera work is pretty good, too, with a nice mix of wider and closer shots.
Scene 2: Allie James and Giovanni Francisco (♀♂)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ✓
Two people who have just met find a private place at the party to have sex.
Unfortunately, there is not as much of a connection between them as one would expect, and the sex is not as passionate as it should be for the situation, though it is not boring, by any means. But the fucking segments all last too long—sometimes much too long—and should have been edited a bit. So the whole scene ends up going on much too long. That is especially true since, while she does seem to enjoy herself at least somewhat, she never seems terribly aroused.
There's an interesting sort of amateur feel to how this is shot, almost as if it is being recorded in the bedroom by someone else at the party. That adds a good deal of interest to the scene. But we really do lose him when they start fucking, especially when they are doggy style, and the camera work generally becomes a bit more predictable then.
It is a little bit silly that she keeps both her shoes and her glasses on the entire time.
Scene 3: Addie Juniper and Nick Jacobs (♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
James's brother and his wife (Addie Juniper) are cleaning up after the party when he decides there is something better they could do. Interestingly, she is wearing a cute panty and camisole set to do the cleaning.
There's really a great connection between them, and they are very convincing as a couple. The way they talk to each other throughout the scene is excellent. They both really seem to enjoy themselves, and she has at least one orgasm, maybe more.
The camera work here is really terrific, with a great mix of shots and some very nice closeups of his face. She is a bit more the focus, but not too much so. There are some more creative shots, too: silhouettes.
Scene 4: Kaylani Lei and Romeo Price (♀♂)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
Lani (Kaylani Lei) and her boyfriend have sex in the shower.
There's a pretty good connection between them, but the sex feels a bit rushed. If the various segments in earlier scenes seemed to last too long, here they are too short, and the entire scene is only ten minutes long.
She seems to have a fairly good time, but she never seems very aroused.
Scene 5: Anna Morna and Seth Gamble (♀♂)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ♀
Courtney and James finally get together.
The main problem here is that this just doesn't feel like two long-time friends, who have just confessed their love for each other, having sex for the first time. There are almost no expressions of affection as they have sex.
The way their clothes just vanish in the first minute is disappointing. We ought at least to see them disrobe in a hurry, if that is what they need to do. Better would have been to see some passionate kissing, though we suppose it would be understandable if they just needed to get to something else.
The sex overall is good at times, but in the end it feels routine and performed. There is a pretty good connection between them, and they communicate fairly well. But her vocalizations seem overdone. That may just be how she is, but she never seems very close to orgasm, despite all her moaning and her saying that she is going to "cum again".
The camera work is again very good, though.
