I found that I am bit behind everyone else in heaping praise upon this very personal project from performer, director, artist, published writer and self-professed "rope slut" Madison Young, seeing as how it has already won acclaim last year from Cinekink in New York, Fleshbot and the San Francisco-based Good Vibrations Erotic Film Festival. Ms. Young is always an inventive, wonderfully intense performer onscreen, specializing in bondage/fetish material. Eagerly exploring and pushing her boundaries to the limits in such documented exploits, she allows her sexual energy free reign to lead. She has appeared in releases from noted big name studios such as Evil Angel and Ninn Worx, but "Writers & Rockstars" is a smaller, more intimate release from her own Madison Bound Productions company, preceding the kinky, edgy, spank-y and all-together fetish-y 2008 title "Undone".
At the start of the first chapter, "Madison & James", we find Madison working at her desk, seen first through the lens of James's digital camera. She provides insight into the performance piece she working on, pontificating how rock stars fuck the same way they make music – could be hard, could be gentle, but before long their playful banter leads to an extended blow job sequence, all while James continues filming his POV. One of the songs by The Casual Lust drives along purposefully in the background to accompany the frantic sucking, Madison removes her shirt, the pace settles a bit and they stretch out on the futon. His climax into Madison's mouth is seen though his camera's POV, a nice intimate fashion to open the DVD.
In "Madison and Daniel", the story and setting advance to Madison's performance piece, taking place on a darkened stage at The Climate Theater with a close-up on her raspberry red lips and the microphone as she reads. We watch her detail the lovemaking process of rock stars and then jump cut to Madison and Daniel feverishly kissing and groping each other, her panties soon torn off so his fingers plunge inside her. During oral for Daniel, he is able to remove some of his clothing, before turning Madison to face the wall for fucking, his jeans still on, as is her black bra. Very hot stuff, I think many viewers love when the sex occurs at such a frenzied pace that the performers remain half-dressed! There is a blow job break and then they hit the floor for missionary and doggie, another great Casual Lust song galloping along on the soundtrack, great chemistry and heat on display from Madison and Daniel.
The subsequent scene stars Madison and tall blonde Dia Zerva, obviously very friendly with each other, in an empty bar, setting up for the night's entertainment. Dia tunes up her electric guitar while Madison watches from the bar area, visibly aroused. She soon hikes up her skirt and begins to masturbate, able to seduce Dia back over to her so they move things to the next level. Dia sits up on the bar, granting Madison access to her pussy, which she eagerly tongued and fingers. The trade positions, Madison up on the bar, but on all fours, Dia able to dive right in, soon working in eight fingers. The action shifts up another notch when Madison pulls out a Hitachi vibrator and Dia grabs a nearby candle, the former applied to Madison's clit while the latter has its hot wax drizzled across her breasts. Dia finally removes her outfit, then adds a multi-colored dildo to the play, inserting this into Madison's pussy while her clit continues to receive its Hitachi massage, covering her in more hot wax (love the tabla rhythms on the soundtrack). Once Madison orgasms, Dia excuses herself to prepare for her show…
And we move directly into the last chapter, "Dia & Dylan", the chain of love & sex wrapping up, seeing as we followed Madison and James, then Madison and Daniel, then Madison moving on to Dia and Dia carrying the sexual energy forward to Dylan. The scene opens in the ladies' room, as Dia interrupts Dylan Ryan on the toilet. There is a moment of star shock as Dia tells Dylan she is a huge fan of her music. Dylan, being suitably flattered, decides to have Dia right then and there, in the ladies' room. Dia is hoisted onto the sink and receives good tonguing and fingering from Dylan, who then strips off her studded belt and wraps it around Dia's neck as a makeshift leash. This allows her to pull Dia down to return the favors, but soon Dylan whips out a surprise in the form of a strap-on dildo. The excitement builds as she has takes a seat and has Dia ride her in a scorching scene made hotter due to the cramped quarters. Madison suddenly walks into the ladies' room, however, sees what is happening and departs immediately, obviously hurt and dejected…
The scene then fades back to Madison on the stage, reading again from her "Writers & Rockstars" piece, to great applause, but there appears no joy on her face.
Now this might sound silly to say, but I was pretty much sold on "Writers & Rockstars" from watching the title menu. There is a montage of images from the film, sex scenes cross-fading into Madison writing at her desk, all set to an original, lovely, female-led pop song, performed by The Casual Lust. I appreciate Madison highlighting and allowing distinct musical accompaniment to the film, myself being a life-long fan of great film scores, thus granting the projects a unique tone and feel, standing out from porn crowd like Gulliver among the Lilliputians. I loved the playful, intimate start between Madison and James, the hot pairing of her and James and then the double shot of hungry girl/girl sequences. Great performances from everyone involved and then there is the two moments of Madison reading from work, in which the same passage is read but the tone is different both times, one as foreplay for the sex between her and James, the other as a reflective coda, imbued with melancholy from witnesses one's lover with another.
Extras include a behind the scenes featurette (Daniel discussing how he entered porn, photo shoot, he and Madison goofing around and Madison discussing the scene) and trailer for Madison's "Undone".
