Platonic (2023)


Latest Mike Quasar's production for Sweet Sinners and this one is more personal for him than what he usually does since it is an alternate version of his personal life (at least the way it ends is). So let see if it will compare with the fictional film he normally write and direct.

Melissa Stratton and Ryan McLane

Ryan (Ryan McLane) and Melissa (Melissa Stratton) are friends since more than ten years and this is all there relation is. Ryan is pretty much the good friend who are there to listen Melissa's problems even if it's obvious that he wants more than just being stuck in the friend zone (this is something that every guys experience at one point or another of his life and honestly that suck).

Aiden Ashley

Not only his dating life isn't great but he must suffer daily the story of his coworker Tommy (Tommy Pistol) who see no problem with jumping from one woman to another constantly. Melissa dating isn't much better since her choices aren't that great and her girlfriend (Skylar Snow) try to cheer her up by telling her that it isn't important to have a date who can have interesting conversations.

Skylar Snow

Following Tommy's advice Ryan goes on a date and to be honest the date feels more like a chore than anything else... the discussion at the bar sure sound boring but at least there is a happy ending. The following morning Ryan's date has barely the time to leave that he gets a call from Melissa who wants to see him immediately.

Kylie Rocket

Yep no surprise here, Melissa doesn't feel good and need Ryan ears and attention. After their discussion or, to be more precise, Melissa self dialogue he set her on his sofa to sleep. The following day she feels more better, she gets a date and it looks like the perfect guy... except that it's Tommy and we know it's far from being the case. When Ryan learns it he takes the news badly to say the least.

Tommy Pistol

Tommy and Melissa go on their date as planned... Will Tommy be the prince charming that Melissa wants so much? Will Ryan finally tells his sentiments to Melissa? Will the friend zone barrier jump over and Ryan and Melissa will realize that they are made to be with each other? I won't spoil the end but you certainly know how the answers to those questions already or you haven't watch many romantic story before.

I knew I would like that one from the moment I heard about it... in fact I bought it immediately when it was released last week. Mike Quasar original movies are always enjoyable and well done, this film isn't an exception. Ryan McLane who is pretty much the Sweet Sinners go to actor is a great leading man and he is sure credible in his role and Tommy Pistol is good as always and his date with Aiden is one of the highlight of the film. In fact everybody in the cast did a damn good job... Aiden, even if her part is minor, shine as usual and Melissa Stratton I have never seen before was a perfect casting choice. Sexually speaking we know that every scene will be good since it's a Mike Quasar's production but for me the highlights are the scene between Aiden Ashley and Tommy Pistol (I have never seen a bad scene with Aiden and her selfie session to start it sure is a feast for the eyes) and the scene between Ryan McLane and Melissa Stratton (come on you knew they would end together) who get the conclusion we would all wanted to get in our life when we were stuck in the friend zone.

David Lord

The best film I have watch this year and obviously this is a must buy... Available on VOD and DVD or on the Sweet Sinners streaming platform if you are a member.

Our Mid-Day Ritual (2022)


Something different today since this isn't a film or a short feature like I review usually, in fact I could say that it's an modern old school loop so no real story here but a situation leading to a sex scene.

Kira noir and Anna Claire Clouds

Anna and Kira while doing their morning jog in their new neighborhood surprise one of their neighbor outside with her slave. They spied on the couple until Lumi notices them and invites the duo inside after some shenanigans it's time for a foursome. It's a loop so there aren't much to recap here...

Codey Steele

I like how they did the intro going all musical (no nobody sing here) and exaggerated facial expressions and reactions, as I say it's an old school loop so no dialogue (except for the sex but I wouldn't call sex talk dialogue). The tone is comical so no domination play on the screen, even if I was hoping for this since Lumi Ray wear a fricking sexy domination outfit and Codey is supposed to be a slave. The sex is enjoyable and there is a little bit of everything for everybody (as long as you are in regular sex). Sometimes the action is a little bit tight since they are four on a sofa but you have some very good point of view (especially when Anna Claire Clouds rides Codey Steele) and lumi Ray squirts twice at the end.

Lumi Ray

To be honest I'd have like to see Lumi dominates her slave a little but I think it's not the point of that series... anyway it certainly worth a watch since the setting is different, funny and the sex is good. No idea if Adult time will release some episodes of that series on VOD at one point or another so the only way to watch this one is to be a member of their streaming service.

Terminal List (2023)


After a six months mission Special Agent Adam Pearson (Nathan Bronson) is back for his debriefing and quickly we see that the tension between him and the debriefer (Vanna Bardot) is very high... in fact they have an history together and Pearson left her without notice to go undercover.

Nathan Bronson

As the debriefing goes we learn more about the special assignment who is about a list of target to kill (at least this is what I have understood). When the procedure is over it's time to talk of the elephant in the room who is... you guess it... them.

Vanna Bardot

After taking care of that elephant one question remains, who is the last name on the list?

I like this one but I feel like something is missing because of the short 31 minutes running time... the story just isn't developed enough, the end is very abrupt and there is no resolution per se (so is up to you to imagine the end). Personally I think that a very good full length feature could have been made with that story line. Enough negative... this isn't really the way I work so let's talk about the positive. The acting from Nathan and Vanna is very good, their sex scene is quite enjoyable since they have a perfect chemistry so it's believable.

I won't say it's an essential watch but if you are a fan of Vanna Bardot or Nathan Bronson this sure worth a watch... so maybe not a must purchase but at least a rent (this is how I watched it since Delphine Films is part of Gamelink Unlimited) and of course you can view the feature via their streaming service if you are a member.

The Blind Date (2023)


It's been a while since my last review of a Lust Cinema production, so why not remedy this situation with their latest one... a short romantic comedy directed by Mandi Slate (her first directorial work I think).

Lumi Ray

Sam (Lumi Ray) is in a between relations situation and on those occasions she can't count on her best friend Todd (Michael Vegas) to comfort her since he ain't only a friend but also a fuckbuddy. One morning he comes to tell her something, but before he get the chance to talk about it they jump in the bed. When the fun ends it's time for Todd to tell why he came to see Sam... he is seeing someone and she wants to be exclusive so their friendly sex encounter days are over.

Casey Calvert and Michael Vegas

He offers to set a blind date for her but she isn't interested... that won't prevent Todd to bring someone with Linda (Casey Calvert) and him to spend the evening at Sam's house. Surprise Jessie, the blind date, is a girl.

Lumi Ray and Alexis Tae

They don't hit romantically because Sam had never been with a girl alone, not that she doesn't have previous experience but a man was involved in the mix. At the end of the evening they exchange their numbers to meet again. Obviously they do and via a montage we witness their feelings for each other growing up.

The relation reaches the point where it's time for a more physical situation... surprisingly when the moment happens Sam froze and everything goes to hell and the relation is over. But is it really? It's a romantic comedy so if you have watched one before you already know answer.

For a first directorial effort Mandi Slate did a very good job, not only in the directing chair but also as the writer since this is a beautiful romantic story. Lumi Ray I haven't seen in a feature film before is very good and believable in the leading role (I really hope that she will continue to star in more narratives films) and Alexis Tae also does a good job playing the romantic interest. As usual with the Lust Cinema movies there is a lot of production values that made the film felt high budget... other studios should take a page from their book, when you shoot outside and not only in a house the result doesn't look cheap. The sex scenes are on the short side which is normal since the film is only 62 minutes long, but the romanticism and realism of the last scene between Lumi Ray and Alexis Tae worth the entry price by itself. 

At this time the film is exclusive on the Lust Cinema streaming service since it was released only a couple of days ago... usually they aren't the fastest to release their films so my suggestion would be to become a member of their service, believe me it worth the price since most of the time their films are very good and enjoyable if like me you enjoy adult cinema.

Hook, Line and Sinker (2022)


After an evening at a club Maggie (Codi Vore) is waiting for a taxi to stop to pick her up with no luck. Meanwhile Kyle (Jay Romero) another customer exit the club too and Maggie and him start talking together while they wait for a taxi to stop.

Codi Vore and Jay Romero

During their conversation Kyle reveals that it's his last civilian evening for a while since he will be deployed for six months the following day. Maggie is impress by his military involvement and wants to thank him for his service so she invite him at her place since they don't live far from each other.

At Maggie's place they waste no time to jump in the action since she wants to give him a night he won't forget for the next six months. The fun doesn't last long before it's over and Kyle left her. A few weeks later Maggie is at a cafe and, surprise, Kyle shows up... turn up that his soldier story was a complete lie, in fact this is his way to pick girls. Strangely she isn't angry that he is a liar and tells him that they should go at his place for a sequel since the first time was great (she over sale the previous night they shared since it was super quick if you ask me).

Kyle can't resist the invitation and it's time for round two and that sequel is far superior to the original since Maggie undress this time... when it's over she has a revelation for him and it could be the end of his fake soldier days.

To be honest I picked that one for one reason alone... Codi Vore. I always enjoy her works with Summer Hart and it was a rare occasion to see her in a feature. It was an average Pure Taboo short feature story wise but the final act sure made it worthwhile, Codi is just stunning and her acting was surprisingly good. The end could had been better not the conclusion per se but more how quickly it's done and how nothing is shown (that card provider excuse is a lame excuse in that case and Gamma played it safe to a ridiculous level).

At the best of my knowledge, at this time, the feature is a streaming exclusive... if you are a member give it go since it's certainly worthy of a watch.

Sally Mae: Revenge of the Twin Dragons (2022)


More blaxsploitation today with the sequel of Sweet Sweet Sally Mae and it's a direct continuation of the original so it could be a good idea to watch it first since it will help you to understand the events of this one... not that you can't enjoy the film going blind, this is just a friendly advice and Sweet Sweet Sally Mae is excellent so you won't waste your time watching or rewatching it anyway.

Cali Caliente

We start at a crime scene and this isn't some random scene... one of the murder victim is Miss Jane so this is the aftermath of Sweet Sweet Sally Mae. Miss Jane was an important member of the Blackground Family so that double murder could result to an all-out gang war. Luckily Detective Stone (Cali Caliente) finds a piece of evidence the scene, a towel with the name S Mae written on it.

Alexis Tae, Scotty P and Alina Ali

Meanwhile at New York Scotty informs the family boss about the murder of his wife, Miss Jane, at Los Angeles and asks his help to get his revenge. His guards throw Scotty out and he decides to take the matter in his own hands by putting a million dollar bounty on Sally Mae (Ana Foxxx) head... dead or alive.

Isiah Maxwell

When coming back to her apartment Sally see a familiar figure walking to her from the dark alley... Trevor who taught her how to fight, but it could be since he was killed. In fact it's Isiah his bother who is here to warn Sally Mae that everybody is after her. She follows him to his place so he will be able to protect her.

Ana Foxxx

Sound fine but all this sound kind of fishy when someone calls Isiah and his answering machine took the call... Sally Mae learns about the bounty and becomes suspicious of him and leave in a rush. But she is dead wrong, Isiah really wants to protect her, he lied to the cops and even to Bella (Alina Ali) who came to question him... until the phone fucks everything again. 

Misty Stone

Things sound very bad for Isiah but the cops show up to save the day... now it's time to go after Gabriel (the boss of the Blackground family), but to get to him they (Stone, Sally and Isiah) must pass through his guards first and going though they sure will. After dealing with the two guards the identity of the boss is revealed and Sally Mae finally gets her revenge for her sister... or did she?


What an amazing sequel it was! The story is really good and full of surprises, the boss reveal sure was for me and no I won't spoil it. Also going by the ending it's obvious that we will get another chapter with Sally Mae in the future (maybe later this year?). Solid performances by everyone but specially from Isiah Maxwell, seriously he really shines in this film. The sex is solid from the start with a great lesbian scene between Caliente and Stone through through the end with a foursome between Foxxx, Caliente, Scotty P and Thrillmonger (that guy could have starred easilly in an eighties action film, he sure have the muscular look).  

Cali Caliente, Ana Foxxx and Isiah Maxwell

The film is a huge Ricky Greenwood's love letter to the genre and I highly recommend it (as I do for the original). You can stream the movie on the Adult Time platform if you are a member (fun fact: I became a member to watch Sweet Sweet Sally Mae when it was originally release and I'm always is) or you can buy it online at your usual store on VOD or DVD.

Sugar Town (2008)


Today I go back in time since I haven't watch something older in a while, but too be honest the real reasons why I picked this one are the cover art and Whitney Stevens... if someone would ask me who is my all-time my answer would be Whitney, one of the most beautiful and hottest woman who was in the adult industry but in the wrong era since 99% of what she did was fuck scenes (this time it felt like it could be a feature).

Britney Stevens and Mr. Marcus

Sadly as I should have guessed since this isn't nineties Vivid but mid 2000 at the end of their successful run Vivid this is more a vignettes film with a very small blaxsploitation theme to link the scenes (more or less, since it's like saying interracial sex scenes equals blaxsploitation). So, to be honest, talking about the synopsis isn't really important here so let's talk about the sex... 

First one is between a pimp and one of his girl. This one isn't for me, Mr. Marcus is too big for Britney Stevens, she doesn't feel comfortable and I can't enjoy watching sex when a performer doesn't seem to have a good time.

Ashley Blue and Tyler Knight

Next we have Tyler Knight who looks cool as hell driving a vintage car visiting Ashley Blue. This scene is all anal something I ain't a big fan of usually but it was quite enjoyable to watch... Ashley sure produce the hugest amount of saliva I haven't seen when she gives a blowjob.

Tony T. and Whitney Stevens

Next the moment I was waiting for... after a short introduction in which Dirty Harry come to pick Whitney's mother (Veronica Hart) for a date she have the house for herself after they left. Her boyfriend shows up and it's time for act three, nothing to complain here... one of the greatest Whitney's scene and believe me I have more than one hundred of her film (it's not because I review only feature films that I don't buy sex only VOD). Great sex, awesome visual position and, for a change, the person in charge of her make-up didn't go over the top with the eyes shadow so it's a natural looking Whitney that we get.

Julius Ceazher and Tori Black

Next we are back with the theme, as good as the previous scene was it didn't really fit with the rest, with Julius outside watching three girls to pick one... Britney and Ashley already got their scene so obviously the picked one is a young Tori Black. The scene is conventional and nothing out of the ordinary, but it's Tori so the scene is enjoyable.

Jada Fire

It's time to close the program with a scene between Jada Fire and Julius Ceazher that feel a little bit like a filler. Not that it isn't a good scene since Jada is curvy at all the right places so it's a win for me... filler or not.

Veronica Hart

I won't lie... the deceptive cover art promising a blaxsploitation feature but delivering a vignette film isn't cool. But almost all the sex scenes are enjoyable, some efforts were made using seventies car and clothes (for the most part) and I we got an amazing scene with Whitney so I can't complain. On the other hand that would have been nice to have a score fitting with the seventies sound and a much better cameo from Veronica Hart (seriously she got more screen time in the behind the scenes featurette than what she got in the film).

More a rent than a purchase recommendation since this doesn't have that much rewatchability unless you are a big fan of one of the actresses. Since they bought the Vivid library the film is available to stream for free on Adult Time if you are a member of course.

Privilege (2022)


Since the second half of the series will be gradually release at the end of the month (the 24) on the Wicked Pictures streaming service I think it's time to review the first half of the last Seth Gamble latest directorial effort.

Evan Stone

Alexander Nash (Evan Stone) is a very successful multi-millionaires businessman working on a very big financial transaction, the deal is looking kind of shady at first glance but it could be is way out since he plans for his son Liam (Nathan Bronson) to replace him. He doesn't have the best family around him... his second wife Isabella (Julia Ann) is without a doubt a gold digger, his second son Lucas (Lucky Fate) is a gambler and a scam artist leaching his money, his step-daughter Nicole (Lilly Bell) is also like her mother after his money but, at least for now, his two daughters Emma (April Olsen) and Freya Parker (I didn't catch her character name) seem fine.

Lucky Fate and Lilly Bell

Alexander hides a large sum of cash with all his offshore bank account in a safe at his office and we discover another member of his entourage who is after his money... Meghan (Vanna Bardot) who is an employee at his business office. 

Vanna Bardot

Freya Parker and Oliver Davis

It won't take long for what we expected to happen... no Alexander isn't killed but someone break into his office and take the money from the safe making it looks like a random theft, obviously nobody believe that.

Damon Dice and April Olsen

The first half ends with Alexander in jail receiving the visit of his son Liam after his wife set him up... which should gave her time to find some money and run. 

Julia Ann

Obviously this is the biggest project, at this time, that Seth Gamble did for Wicked... Axel Braun sure knew that he had a superstar director in the making when he gave him his chance to direct. The story is very interesting and the number of suspects is sure high and I'm not sure the thieve is really the obvious ones... we will know in a month or so. The cast is quite big contrary to what we usually see in the Wicked productions since Gamma bought them (there are more characters who haven't made their apparition yet), the locations aren't cheap like the set dressing so the budget must have been pretty good and the acting is solid from everybody. The sex even if it's conventional (I don't say that in a negative way, I only mean that there is no anal or rough play just regular sex) is good, arousing and realist.

Nathan Bronson

At this time this is only available via the Wicked streaming service, I suppose a wide release will be made not too long after the series will be completed exclusively for the members, and I can certainly tell you to watch it before the last half start streaming next week to refresh your memory... Great work on this one Seth!
