“Lies: Diary of an Escort” is a very good production from director Sunny Leone and her production company, Sun Lust, that features Breanne Benson as an escort who, like a moth to the flame, is ultimately burned by the double-edged sword that is her double-life. On the one hand, she has a girlfriend (Sunny Leone) who cares for her deeply and has a strong desire to pull her out of her potentially-deleterious profession. On the other hand, however, Breanne has an addiction to the “easy” money that her lifestyle seemingly drops on her by the bucket-full. As might be expected, the attempted reconciliation of these two opposing aspects of her existence forms the underlying basis for the storyline throughout the production, and the resultant conflict builds as Sunny’s feelings for Breanne grow and as Breanne concomitantly takes on more and more risky jobs. Ultimately, this all builds to a crescendo, and final decisions are made. In the interest of not introducing any spoilers, I’ll leave it at that. Now… how about the fucking?
In terms of the sex, things are generally hot, though it’s clear that the production values could be turned up a notch, and the camera work could be improved in some places. In Scene One, Sunny Leone puts forth an ultra-hot shower masturbation sequence after Breanne has put on a bit of a lingerie fashion show for her. Sunny not only does a good deal of seductive posing in this one, but she also uses her fingers and a suction-cup dildo on herself. Typically, I find solo-girl sequences to be a bit on the tepid side. This one, however, is far from it and is definitely as sexy as they come—excellent material! Scene Two involves a very good vaginal romp between Breanne and her married client, Ryan McLane, in a hotel room. This one closes out with a cum-shot delivered to Breanne’s ass and ass-crack. In Scene Three, Sunny lets her friend (Monique Alexander) know that she has fallen in love with Breanne, and then Sunny and Monique proceed to get it on (?) in a brick-walled area with a bed. Fingers and tongues are made good use of here, as are a purple double-headed dildo that the two ladies share and a pink strap-on that Monique nails Sunny with. Overall—and maybe it’s my bias for all things Monique Alexander—but this is an excellent segment.
Scene Four features Breanne with Bruce Ventura on another job at a hotel. Bruce plays the part of an insensitive (and a touch rough) john who simply takes what he wants from his escorts…Breanne included. Overall, the vaginal encounter that ensues falls into the very-good-to-excellent range as it pertains to its heat, and it closes out with a pop-shot meant for Breanne’s chest but that Bruce forces partly to her face. Breanne is the one who jerks Bruce to orgasm in this one. In Scene Five, Sunny and Breanne get it on after Sunny professes her love for her and lets her know that she wants her out of the hooking life. The girl/girl romp that follows involves fingers, tongues, and the women using dildos and vibrators on one another before closing out. This one taps the very good level on the heat index.
Scene Six brings Breanne to a private home on a job, in which she’s there to service a husband (Tommy Pistol) and his wife (Sienna Milano). Upon entering, Breanne finds that Sienna is tied up and ball-gagged…so it’s clear that this couple is a bit on the kinky side…but she decides to stick with it, anyway. With this, the festivities get started with a good deal of girl/girl action—some of which occurs while Sienna is still tied up—and that predominantly takes the form of Breanne working her over, mostly in an oral fashion. After a good deal of this action, Tommy gets in on the mix and ultimately nails both of them vaginally before unloading on Sienna’s face and mouth…which she follows up with some oral cock clean-off. All in all, this is a very good sequence. In Scene Seven, Breanne takes yet another job at a private residence—this time at the rural home of Will Power. Will comes off as a real creeper in this one from the onset and only gets worse by the time all is said and done…much worse. Before totally losing it, though, he does manage to bang Breanne in a few vaginal positions and be the recipient of some awesome-looking head. The cum-shot here is a bit of a let-down, as it involves a faked cream-pie after a supposed condom break. Still, this is a very good scene.
In terms of the plot, the premise is pretty much as noted in the opening paragraph of this review. It’s a cool idea, and it does—overall—work out decently. That said, more effort could have gone into the production, and it’s clear that the storyline could have been given a bit more depth relative to the actual events in the film. So…it’s good (for an adult film), but it could have been brought to fruition better…and there are certainly much better-enacted stories out there.
As for bonuses, they’re better than usual for Sun Lust productions—which is a plus—but still nothing to write home about. The “Behind the Scenes” is a welcomed addition, and the “Photo Gallery” is well done. That said, these are the only two extras presented. (It should also be noted that a couple of advertisements run upon playing the movie. These are something of an annoyance but not a major one.)
All in all, this production is worth checking out—particularly for fans of Breanne Benson and Sunny Leone—but it is hampered a bit in terms of production values (not horribly, but it’s noticeable) and in terms of how the storyline has been enacted. For fans of gonzo, it’s obvious that this isn’t a good choice. For people interested in features, it’s strong enough to be worthwhile. Overall—check it out if you like the description.
