|Sex Machines #2|
Studio: Homegrown SELECT
If You Dig Watching Women React...
Incredibly basic DVD. Same machine through the whole video. One guy with a camera and the controls. Loud machine noise throughout. Occasional (I thought endearing) technical difficulties. Still absolutely fucking fabulous. I love curvier women, and they're well represented here, the orgasms are plentiful and real, real, real, and there's lots of focus on the women's faces as they build toward them, too. As a woman who loves intensity, I could absolutely identify with this one, and bought it before I'd even gotten through the first scene. Also lots of laughing and grinning, and a bit of friendly chatter. Casual, and real, and remarkably sexy.

I was underwhelmed by Leatherpunks, by the same director, but this one had exactly the elements I was missing there. The audio is good and the performers are enthusiastic, with good chemistry. I particularly enjoyed the two gang-bang scenes.

For being a lot of perfectly attractive guys having a lot of sex, this one was oddly dull. I think a lot of what killed it for me was the relative lack of audible reaction to anything -- just a lot of banging away without being able to tell who's enjoying what just isn't all that interesting to me.

fascinating costumes, and the bicycle-fucking is... interesting, but i found i had very little patience for it, except as an interesting costuming experiment. it reminded me a great deal of zazel, which came out back when i was in college, and was a huge-budget, gorgeous, very stylized porn that got a lot of attention. in both cases, pretty and visually interesting is rather orthogonal to sexy for me. as insexts was described in the house: "party porn" -- fun to put on in the background just for the weirdness, but not an actual turn-on. lots of posing and porn-girl kissing ("stick out your tongues and wiggle them together -- oooh, sexy!" *eyeroll*), and all the sex noises were stylized and synthesized into the soundtrack, rather than being at all about how any of the individual performers were actually responding at any given time. that's a total killer for me, because i'm extremely auditory -- i love hearing people's breathing changing, moaning, sex noises, etc. without those, i don't react all that strongly the vast majority of the time. i ended up watching a good chunk of the movie on fast-forward looking for anything that really got me sexually, and just didn't find it. if you are mostly into visuals, and a more highly stylized sexuality, you might dig this one, but if you're looking for something with at least a touch of raunch and realistic fucking, this is a non-starter.

Honest, Real, And Fun.
I love seeing the porn that's coming out of the indie/queer/feminist community, and this one is a good example; I enjoyed it a great deal. It's got a good focus on real sex that obviously wasn't stopped every two minutes for camera adjustments (this does mean occasional unfortunate shadows and background noise, but I found that trade-off totally worth it).
The whole movie does have a rather friendly, relaxed, honest feel to it (although the dialogue is sadly just as stilted as in any porn), and it's a very nice smorgasboard of different pairing preferences. Its more natural timelines make me feel like it's really best-suited to watching with a partner, rather than as hardfastnow wank material, but I don't see that as a bad thing.
