The Short Story
Initial Expectations: The promise of BY LESBIAN FOR LESBIAN award winning porn, was more than enough to draw me in.
Initial Reaction: they're still in heels? you're kidding me?
Who Should Watch It : people who are tired of press on nails "weekend lesbians", and an industry driven by the ownership of testicles.
Who Should Avoid It: straight guys or anyone who want to see, "pretty girls" with their bleached blonde, dallas cheerleader makeup and fake orgasms...
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The audio levels overall were considerably low. I had to crank the volume to hear any conversation, but the slapping of skin on skin was more than ample sound recording, resulting in constant volume adjustment from scene to scene. The video is mainly natural , or highly diluted lighting in a small apartment. It has a very reality type feel to it because of this. The coloration is slightly dim, but with good contrast. It isn't a grainy picture or anything, the film just lacks some of the usual stage effects, most of the mainstreamers use.
Music: soft and unnoticeable
Menus: well designed and quite feminine, yet modern.
The action starts from the first moment as we see two fairly butch women in a small apartment, stripping each other down and beginning the fun. these two have already progressed to the strapon activities, before we get a clear idea what the movies gist is gonna be. a cutaway scene in an alley sums up the story, as we see a meeting of friends exchanging the key.
“This is the key to the crash pad and I want to give it to you...There’s only one small catch...”
The key is only supposed to be used three times before it is passed on. It is the key to a secret underground crash pad, a place that offers the freedom of a discreet locale for hookups to have uninhibited lesbian sex. There are rules though. You have to ring before you go in, if no one answers you're good to go, but if you interrupt anyone else's fun... they get to call the shots... and somehow the mysterious owners know when the rules are bent.
after the introduction cuts back to the apartment we see couple A. still inside lustfully continuing their fuckfest, as one girl is now riding the strapon with furious abandon... Another couple arriving at the door fails to get a response to their ring, and proceed to enter... An interracial threeway ensues giving a great show for a little blonde who watches from the sidelines.
A femme masturbates to a horny orgasm while a stone butch and chapstick gal, hover over her making out.
Next at the crash pad, a busty semi plump femme and her lover get down and dirty. the clothing between the two ranges from suspenders and slacks to one in the obligatory porno heels whic even here cannot be escaped. The pleasure from both is undeniable, but the butch seems more than content to give all she can. There are some great shots of the butch’s big black dildo slipping smuggly into the her girls shaved cunt lips. It actually finishes off with a squirting orgasm brought on by some skilled finger work. What a wonderful reprieve from weekender porn lesbians clumsy attampts to induce orgasm on another girl. this chick knows what she's doing and it shows.
The final scene takes place at night with two stone butches, one I gleefully report has hair short enough to be considered military... and the sex, isn't much of a let down either.
