Why to watch: The cover and title make the movie sound like an instructional film, but it’s actually a full-length feature, complete with locations as colorful as the exotic positions contained in the Kama Sutra itself. The opening scene finds Dyanna Lauren and Vince Vouyer checking out a bookstore in the hopes of discovering a sexual manual that can spice up their love life. Veronica Hart (looking very fetching in a non-sex role) guides them to the one and only Kama Sutra! The plot is entertaining, but we know why you’ve come here: to see all those twisty, bizarre positions the Kama Sutra is known for! Surprisingly, you won’t find much in the way of pretzel-positioned pornstars, but that doesn’t mean Kama Sutra: Ultimate Orgasm Guide doesn’t deliver as an overall erotic experience. Quite the opposite, in fact! Couples demonstrate 16 positions across five scenes and 70 minutes of run time. It’s the next best thing to keeping a copy of the Kama Sutra next to your nightstand (and no need to turn the pages!).
Why to watch: “You don’t need a bathing suit! Just take your clothes off!” If you’re a sexy little starlet and you stop by the pool of one of the cougars in this movie, you’re likely to hear those words. The casting in these older/younger lesbian scenes is spot on in every case: a sweet and petite younger beauty with a trim frame, paired with a mature, big-chested MILF. In some cases, the age gaps between the performers aren’t actually all that enormous, but the contrast in body sizes and demeanor helps sell the difference in experience and sexual know-how. The Krissy Lynn/Xandra Sixx scene is a scorcher, featuring some very intense tribbing and some tongue-twirling oral action. (We were mildly distracted by the creaking wicker chair that Mercedes Carrera and Carolina Sweets sit on, which makes so much noise it almost seems like a third character in the scene!)
Why to watch: Just another lesbian teen adventure? Not quite! Yes, Girls Kick Ass XXX contains plenty of girl-on-girl action, but it sets things up in a most unusual manner. Tiffany Star plays an apparent sociopath whose confession to an unseen investigator (or is it just a voice in her head?) forms the basis for each scene. Squeezed in between the lesbian makeout sessions, masturbation, oral sex, and finger-banging are surreal moments such as a dead body floating in a pool, a hacksaw decapitation in the back of a car, and a character getting sexually aroused by the sight of a house up in flames. The violence is all stylized and dreamlike, but it’s still enough to be somewhat shocking in the context of a mainline porn movie. Star is loads of fun in the primary role, snarling at her inquisitor and approaching both the sex and dialogue with a devilish enthusiasm that befits her character.
Why to watch: Chance Encounters is billed as a movie “by a couple for couples.” And while it certainly has many of the usual features of a couples movie — vignette plots to set up the chemistry of the performers, a glossy visual style — it also doesn’t compromise in terms of action. This is not the sort of movie that favors artsy shots of champagne glasses over explicit sex, meaning it should appeal to a wide range of porn audiences, not simply couples alone. Natalia Starr opens the movie with some very sexy masturbation that eventually gives way to a fantasy pairing with Karlo Karrera. Some light BDSM makes an appearance in scene two, as Anthony Rosano answers a personals ad only to be confronted by a bound-up Capri Anderson. Scene three is probably the blockbuster sequence of the movie, featuring the gorgeous Dani Daniels in a threesome with April O’Neil and Erik Everhard. Alice March and Jordan Ash wrap things up in scene four, which finds an embarrassing chance encounter in a bathroom leading to forbidden bedroom romp.
