As with many of the Joy Bear movies, there is a story here, but there is not much to it. Tyler (Nixon) has gone to London, following his ex-girlfriend, Alyssia (Ava Dalush), who has left him after he cheated on her. He finds an apartment with four women, whose sexual exploits keep him totally on edge. He does eventually find Alyssia, or rather she finds him, though only to have sex with him one last time, "for closure".
In the end, though, he finds true love, or at least hot sex, with his roommate Heidi (Samantha Bentley). There's really no explanation at all for why Tyler might fall for Heidi, though. That's probably because hardly any time is spent on the story: only about 15 minutes, in fact. So one might well think of this as more a collection of related vignettes than as a movie.
There are two very good scenes here: the third, with Tyler Nixon and Ava Dalush, and the last, with Tyler Nixon and Samantha Bentley. Nixon and Dalush do a great job playing one-time lovers who are now briefly re-united, and Nixon and Bentley are convincing, too, as new lovers having sex for the first time. What makes both of these scenes so good, though, is the sense of chemistry between the performers, something we sensed especially from how much they talked to each other.
A general problem with all of these scenes, though, is that there is too little attention paid to the build-up, and the genital sex starts much too quickly. This is especially sad in the fourth scene. Tyler's roommate Annabelle (Satine Spark) tells him a story about when she seduced her college professor (Seth Strong). It's a very sexy idea, but hardly any time is spent showing us the seduction. We would much have preferred to see him trying to resist her despite his hardening cock. But just three minutes into the scene they are already fucking.
The camera work is pretty good, but there are the usual sorts of issues once the fucking starts, namely, that the male performer tends to be out of frame too often. Things are much better in this respect, though, in the final three scenes.
Scene 1: Creative Genius (Amber Nevada, Stella Cox, and Alexei Jackson, ♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach
Features: Cunnilingus Orgasm
Pleasure ♀, Passion ✓, Balance ♀
Mary (Amber Nevada) and Lola (Stella Cox) have been working on their art, critiqued by their landlord Gabriel (Alexie Jackson). So obviously the three of them need to have sex.
The beginning has very much a "music video" feel, with music to match, though the music cuts out once the sex starts to get serious. But the sex still feels much too stylized: not very natural, and not very passionate. It started to feel a bit monotonous after about 10 minutes.
The camera work is pretty good, and we see plenty of all of them, though there may be a bit more focus on the women. We would have preferred fewer closeups, though, and we also would have a liked a few more wider shots, from far enough away that we can see all of them. Many of the edits are also very abrupt.
Scene 2: Jekyll and Heidi (Samantha Bentley and Luke Hotrod, ♀♂)
Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance ✓
Heidi (Samantha Bentley) is another of Tyler's roommates, a model. Her boyfriend, Mike (Luke Hotrod), is a photographer of sorts, and he shows up to shoot her in lingerie, which leads to sex.
The sex isn't bad, but it does feel somewhat routine, and even close to performed. The highlight is certainly the second time she sucks him, which is very sexy—as Ms Naughty often says, porn blowjobs can be really boring—but the scene ends badly, with him cumming on her tits in a very unnatural way. And she never seems close to cumming.
The camera work during the initial fellatio sequence is all right, but not great. We do not see much of him at all. And things do not really improve, in that respect, once they start fucking. It's not bad, by any means, and it does have its moments. As in the first scene, though, there are too many closeups and not enough wider shots. The whole thing feels very "matter of fact", somehow, and not terribly sexy.
Scene 3: One Last Time (Ava Dalush and Tyler Nixon, ♀♂)
Features: Analingus, Rough Sex
Pleasure ✓, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
Alyssia (Ava Dalush) texts Tyler (Nixon), calling him to her apartment so she can have sex with him one last time.
We really appreciated how much they talk to each other. There is a passion to the sex, and a chemistry between them, that was noticeably missing from the first two scenes. She seems very aroused for much of the time, though she never seems terribly close to orgasm.
The camera work is much better in this scene, as well. We especially liked how the fellatio sequence was shot, much of the time from behind her, so the focus is on his face. But there are, again, a few too many "meat shots" once they start fucking, and we see less of him, then, especially when they are doggy style. Some of the edits are once again a bit abrupt, as well, and it seems like there are some continuity issues.
Scene 4: O'Madly (Satine Spark and Seth Strong, ♀♂)
Annabelle (Satine Spark) remembers seducing her college professor (Seth Strong)---not because it would lead to anything, but so she could get him out of her system.
The sex is again natural and passionate, and there is good chemistry between them. But the real problem here, to us, is that not nearly enough time is spent on the build-up. The idea of her seducing her professor is really sexy, but only a couple minutes are spent on the seduction. It would have been much hotter to see him getting hot and bothered, trying to resist her, and slowly giving into his desires. Instead, they are already fucking three minutes into the scene. The end is a bit pornish, as well.
The camera work is pretty good, more like in the third scene than in the first two. But once again, many of the edits just don't make much sense, and as a result the scene feels a bit disjointed.
Scene 5: Two of a Kind (Samantha Bentley and Tyler Nixon, ♀♂)
Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach
Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance ♀
Tyler (Nixon) is painting his roommate Heidi (Samantha Bentley), who is just back from a photoshoot in Rome, but she gets up, walks over to him, and starts kissing him.
The sex is again very natural and passionate, and there is terrific chemistry between them. There is also, again, a lot of talking in this scene, which we really liked. She cums very hard while stroking her clit while riding him.
The camera work is on the good side, as far as the movie is concerned, but there were many of the same problems as in earlier scenes, and there was something close to a POV shot—not balanced by one from her POV—when she was sucking him.
