Boxcover for Truth About O, The
Truth About O, The 

Release date: 4/30/2012
Reviewed on: 8/4/2012

Starring: Claire Adams, Justine Joli, James Deen, Nat Turnher, Bobbi Starr, Danny Wylde, Asa Akira, Krissy Lynn, Michael Vegas, Jessie Andrews
Studio: Adam & Eve

Directed by: Ernest Greene
Review brief: It takes something pretty special to capture my attention nowadays. So, I'd like to share three reasons why I'm so keen on The Truth About O. (1) The relationships feel thoroughly real. (2) The audiovisual quality is admirable. (3) The sexual action flows smoothly in the direction of increasing intensity. There's a veritable constellation of kink. Claire's gorgeous shibari work shines foremost. Also included: a lit-up, wicked-looking fucking machine several pieces of novel sculptural furniture for bondage a suction machine whipping by floggers and by crop spanking by hand a satisfying selection of toys such as electric vibrators, a transparent buttplug, nipple clamps, and tasteful yet oh-so-naughty lingerie and fetishwear and a general plethora of sexual activity from vigorous anal poundings of the type best left to the professionals, to the flirtatious simple pleasures of dressing and undressing. The donning of the ballet booties in the third scene is especially nice.

Perfect Secretary, The: Training Day 

Release date: 6/1/2010
Reviewed on: 6/18/2010

Starring: Tom Byron, Randy Spears, Tommy Gunn, Mika Tan, Shyla Stylez, Claire Adams, Kayden Kross, Alexis Texas
Studio: Adam & Eve

Directed by: Ernest Greene
Review brief: Director Ernest Greene fondly refers to The Perfect Secretary: Training Day as "kink light." It agree that it's a fun movie, less ambitious than his O masterpieces, but still graced by rollicking sex, intriguing visuals, and an easygoing wit. In addition, the bonus disc is chockfull of entertaining and educational material. So I hope you get the memo and arrange a meeting with this movie soon!

Vintage Erotica Anno 1920 

Release date: 9/26/2007
Reviewed on: 6/29/2009


Studio: Rykodisc

Review brief: There was no shortage of jizz in the Jazz Age. While these films are quite brief compared to modern porn, it's nifty to see how the same themes which interest many viewers today were equally fascinating several generations ago. There's definitely some very explicit and taboo content in this collection.

Starring: Maggie, Claire Adams, Maria Shadoes
Studio: Bound N Determined

Review brief: The lack of pretension in this production is quite charming. Lew doesn't even attempt to concoct a flimsy fantasy on a shoestring budget. He instead wisely presents the action just as it is: straightforward bondage play as enjoyed by authentic kinksters. I respect the way he manages the scenes with kind-hearted attentiveness to the women's safety, but also with enough of a cruel streak to keep the situations interesting.

Studio: Adam & Eve

Directed by: Ernest Greene
Review brief: Authentic pleasure. Attention to detail. And an appealing plot with snappy dialog, too? I had to double check the 2257 statement on the box to make sure I was really watching porn. It's so rare for an adult movie to nail all three of those qualities. My girly bits are still tingly and happy. O2: The Surrender of O is quite a treat.

Dominatrix Waitrix 

Release date: 10/2/2005
Reviewed on: 12/30/2008

Starring: Eve Minax, Sache
Studio: Fatale Video

Directed by: Edith Edit
Review brief: It's an indie production, shot in Chicago. The participants are the right type of freaks who appeal to me (I had already encountered a couple of them online before hearing about the movie, in fact). The movie was a labor of love for the creator, who maxed out her credit card to make it. It was a labor of love for the cast, too, who reportedly worked for free. The credits are unusually robust and include a choreographer, several composers, and the longest list of thank yous that I've seen. The script is surreal and cerebral enough to reference both Busby Berkeley's "We're in the Money" and Leopold von Sacher Masoch's Venus in Furs. Clearly, this is not cookie cutter porn.

Review brief: Buck Off is a respectable effort with several sweet spots. I like the foreplay the best. The showering in the second scene, roughhousing in the third scene, and kinkstering in the fourth scene are especially lovely.

Fountain Of Innocence

Reviewed on: 11/9/2008

Starring: Billy Glide, Tom Byron, Jeremy Steele, Juli Ashton, Shayla LaVeaux, Vince Vouyer, Steve Drake, Ron Jeremy, Nina Hartley, Toni James, Sean Rider, Taren Steele, Supremacy
Studio: VCA

Directed by: Veronica Hart
Review brief: Ah, the halcyon days of VCA features. How I miss them. As is typical for the movies I've seen from that not-long-ago era, Fountain of Innocence is a beautiful multi-camera production, attractively lit, skillfully edited, and boasting excellent sound that's enhanced by carefully selected music. The views of the sex are explicit yet pretty. The costumes are a hoot: the perfect swizzle of elegance and tackiness, just right for a porno about a porno. Ron Jeremy stars as a director who's taping History of the Sex World: Part 2. Taren Steele plays an aspiring actress who's about to perform for the first time. Our nervous heroine receives friendly advice and reassurance from a trio of hot blonde veterans: Juli Ashton, Shayla LaVeaux, and Nina Hartley. The conversational flow is pleasingly uncontrived. It sounds as though the performers are discussing their real and very positive experiences in the industry. It all leads to a happy heap of flesh by the swimming pool.

Release date: 4/17/2008
Reviewed on: 5/7/2008

Starring: Tiffany Mynx, Nina Hartley, Noname Jane, Dick Danger
Studio: Adam & Eve

Review brief: I've never been pregnant and probably never will be. Nonetheless, I believe that Nina Hartley's Guide to Great Sex During Pregnancy is the pinnacle of this series to date. The logistical obstacles to assembling this production surely must've been daunting. And yet, the result looks completely easy and natural. It's informative and erotic and classy and...dare I say...moving. If you have any interest in this topic whatsoever, this is the DVD you need. It will be a long time, if ever, before anyone surpasses what's been achieved here.

Review brief: If all educational productions were like this one, I'd be thrilled to watch nothing but instructional DVDs. Nina Hartley's Guide to Stripping for Your Partner is not heavy on technique, yet there's much to inspire would-be dancers (both guys and gals). And it all leads to such beautifully scorching sex! Nina makes me want to take it off, take it all off.

Starring: Evan Stone, Christian XXX, Eric Masterson, Faith, Kimberly Kane, August, Monica Sweetheart, Lucy Lee, Cassie Courtland
Studio: Playgirl

Review brief: So aside from the fact that Tantric Sex Secrets has no tantra, is it any good? Sorta. The quality is uneven, but three or four of the scenes are alright. Overall, the DVD might rate a little above average for couple's fare. Viewers who prefer exclusively straight sex without anal intercourse and without facial ejaculations are the audience members most likely to enjoy Tantric Sex Secrets.

Studio: Avalon

Directed by: Buck Angel
Review brief: This is not Buck's finest release (that honor would have to go to the luscious romantic comedy Buckback Mountain. V for Vagina is, however, a half-notch above average. Buck hasn't used an all-female cast or a butt plug in any other movies I've seen, so his fans might especially enjoy these special treats.

Studio: VCA

Directed by: Wesley Emerson
Review brief: Despite the screenplay credit for Martin Brimmer, the story is scanty. The dialog totals well under ten minutes and is not always convincing. Kelly O'Dell plays a movie star who flees Los Angeles for "Shithole, Montana" (as her friend Nina calls it). Feeling lonely, Kelly gets a notion to open a lesbian bar. The sole local protester is quickly seduced.

Reviewed on: 6/6/2007

Starring: Buck Angel, Sean Steele, Mylo Deren, Lobo
Studio: Buck Angel Entertainment

Directed by: Lawrence Roberts
Review brief: Buckback Mountain is a clever adaptation of the mainstream film Brokeback Mountain. This newest version happily tweaks Annie Proulx's tale of cowboy romance, chucking the tragedy and inserting a lot more humor (and a whole lot more explicit sex). The producer and award-winning star is Buck Angel, a hot and handsome FTM transsexual whose phenomenal work is among the best proof that porn can sometimes be ahead of the curve.

Review brief: I've watched four installments in this series: 3, 12, 16, and 19. Each has its strong points, but the edge goes to volume 16 as my personal favorite. It's consistently satisfying from start to finish. Viewers who enjoy this style of BDSM will find lots to love in Nina Hartley's Private Sessions 16.

Audiovisual quality: The camerawork is professional and fluid, skillfully incorporating mirrors for a subtle multi-angle effect. The lighting in the first scene has a tungsteny golden hue. That's not necessarily a bad thingit just gives a cozy-homey feel. The location is essentially noiseless; dialog is easily heard and understood. A 15-minute piece of electronica backs Marie's striptease and massage.

Starring: Midori, Mayan
Studio: Bleu Productions

Directed by: Maria Beatty
Review brief: Silken Sleeves Cast: Midori (aka Fetish Diva Midori) and Mayan. Director and editor: Maria Beatty Production date: 2006 Length: 49 min. Extras: Eight trailers totaling twenty minutes (The Black Glove, The Elegant Spanking, Ladies of the Night, Let the Punishment Fit the Child, 7 Deadly Sins, Lust, Ecstasy in Berlin 1926, and The Boiler Room), an eleven-minute bondage tutorial, a two-minute slide show of Midori's photos (34 images), and a one-minute biography of Maria Beatty. Audiovisual quality: The camerawork somewhat favors the submissive's experience. Facial close-ups are more common for Mayan; in the first scene, Midori's head often isn't even in the frame. That imbalance aside, the visual quality is very good. The lighting is subdued, with a red filter for autumn, blue for winter, and yellow for spring. The minimalist set evokes a Japanese garden, consisting of rough plaster walls, a sand floor, a simple rock "river," a pair of empty bird cages, and a small stand of trees (the foliage changes according to season).

Off-camera directions are also audible in a couple of places, which is my biggest criticism of the technical aspects of this production.

Review brief: Zen Pussy: A Meditation on Eleven Vulvas Cast: Revi Airborne, Oriana Bolden, Kate Bornstein, Emilie Brough, Barbara Carrellas, Betsy Caygill, Brett Isis Fisher, Celine Germain, Kaos Kitty, Letty Neely, Annie Sprinkle. Director: Joseph Kramer Production date: 1999 Length: 60 min. Extras: Eleven minutes of ads for various workshops, books, and movies. Audiovisual quality: The video consists entirely of crisply focused close-ups. The lighting is pleasant and natural-looking. The locations are quiet, with very little background noise of any kind. The audio consists of deep breathing, thrilled sighs, uninhibited giggles, and the odd tummy grumble, plus the ring of a chime to herald each vulva as she first appears. Ratings note: There's no sex in the usual sense, not even masturbation. The "sex rating" above refers to the overall erotic and inspirational vibe of this movie. The concept: The movie opens with one-minute previews of each vulva, followed by the main sequence in which each view lasts about four minutes. The women and the camera are both stationary.

False advertising: The box cover describes this movie as "A 35mm Feature Film," which is only partly true. The three main sex scenes were shot on video. The reasons for this mixed format are disclosed in the documentary. The overall audiovisual quality is exceptionally good, so I believe relatively few viewers will take offense at the "cheated" footage. Audiovisual quality: Wow.

False Advertising: The cover incorrectly claims this is "The First FTM Porno Movie." Actually, it's not even Buck's firsthe has at least three previous releases through Mr. Bad Daddy Entertainment. In fact, the Buck's Beaver interviewer mentions seeing one of those movies. Whatever. If I were to deduct points every time I read hyperbole on an adult movie box cover, I doubt I'd ever award any five-star ratings. Audio/visual quality: The videography is disappointing. The problems are most apparent in the cringe-inducing second scene. The camera operator appears to be either (a) unfamiliar with the equipment or (b) higher than a weather balloon.
