Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Pegging

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Pegging

Do you know how many years it’s been since Bend Over Boyfriend? I hate to break it to you (and myself), but 1998 was 14 years ago. While you were suffering through “Hooch” and “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It,” while Bill Clinton was not having sexual relations with that woman, and while some dumb new search engine was launching, Carol Queen and some couples were making a video that was soon to change the landscape of sexuality. They didn’t know what to call their crazy groundbreaking sex act or how to make a video without neon lights and jug-jug-a-jug guitar noodling in the background, but by golly, they were into it. And ahead of the curve: the term “pegging” wouldn’t be coined . . . read more

Review: Wolf Hudson Is Bad .com

Review: Wolf Hudson Is Bad .com

[Wolf’s site no longer exists, but you can still stream his performances here or on Kink.com. ] Wolf Hudson looks like the kind of guy who owns more than a few sets of brass knuckles, but in actuality, he is a sweetheart with killer dance moves who hangs out with cats and tweets mouthwatering pictures of his mom’s Dominican food. I first laid eyes on him in Shifting Gears, and I’ve considered him a BAMF ever since his scene in My Own Master, so when he asked me to review his newly-launched paysite, I had to say yes. I have never reviewed a website before, but DON’T WORRY I AM VERY CRITICAL OF THEM TOO. Wolf Hudson Is Bad is still in its infancy — it . . . read more

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Advanced Anal Sex

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Advanced Anal Sex

[This post contains mentions of James Deen. I no longer support him or his work.] Tristan Taormino is obsessed with the butt. This is a known fact. But somehow it’s been four years since her original guide to anal sex. Therefore, Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Advanced Anal Sex is a mouthful, but what else was she gonna call it? Like all the Expert Guide movies, this one begins with a workshop in which Tristan dispenses info on anatomy (including the prostate), preparation, lube, lots o’ positions, and double penetration. In a much-appreciated attempt at inclusivity, Tristan notes that “while these will be demonstrated with a male giver and a female receiver, people of all genders can try these. Most also work well for . . . read more

Review: Rough Sex 3

Review: Rough Sex 3

This may be the right time to admit that I don’t find Adrianna Nicole’s face terribly attractive. However, her body is smokin’, her tattoos are fabulous, and I definitely know why she got her own porno: she’s a powerhouse. She gives her scenes everything she’s got. She does not let up. She never looks bored. And — especially important for this series — she knows what she wants. Directed by Tristan Taormino, Rough Sex 3: Adrianna’s Dangerous Mind comes on the heels of Rough Sex and Rough Sex 2, movies that revolve around female performers’ desires. Rough Sex and Rough Sex 2 each had a couple epic (read: up to my very high standards) scenes. Rough Sex 3 has just one epic scene, . . . read more

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Female Orgasms

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Female Orgasms

[This post contains mentions of James Deen. I no longer support him or his work.] Tristan Taormino does incredibly important work with her Expert Guide series of porn movies. So many “how-to” movies are yawn-inducing, but Tristan realizes that she must mix education with super-smokin’-hot sex. Sure, if you’re looking for an in-depth run-down of how to achieve orgasm, you’d be better off reading a book, but The Expert Guide to Female Orgasms does what a book can’t: it proves Tristan’s point — that orgasms come in many shapes and sizes — with moving images. Tristan’s 34-minute educational workshop is as helpful and non-judgmental as always. She discusses the phases of female sexual response: arousal, plateau, orgasm (“Women may make strange faces . . . read more

Review: Rough Sex 2

Review: Rough Sex 2

[This post contains mentions of James Deen. I no longer support him or his work.] Tristan Taormino has upped the ante. After the greatness that was Rough Sex, she has created a sequel that is longer (3.5 hours, yo), kinkier, and more creative. It still follows the same format: awesome women tell Tristan a specific fantasy of theirs, and Tristan makes it happen. Before the scenes, there are interviews with the performers and/or footage of negotiations. I saw some complaints that Rough Sex wasn’t “actually rough,” by which people probably meant it wasn’t kinky enough. Rough Sex 2 definitely fills in that gap, and brings the kink in spades. But that is partly the problem, at least for me. I’m more . . . read more

Review: My Own Master

Review: My Own Master

There is something about Kimberly Kane’s brain that I really like. My Own Master, her latest directorial movie, reminds me exactly why. Static on the TV in the background? Sailor hats? Music that I actually like? What is this? Surely it cannot be a porno. A little creativity goes a long way in porn. Remember Kimberly’s Live In My Secrets, with a Jesus painting, a gumball gag, a dude in a horse sling, and fake blood? Yeah, that was awesome. And so is My Own Master. My Own Master (which is shot by Eon McKai) begins with an awesome song by Deathelectric, and Kimberly smoking and making sexyfaces at the camera while wearing a sailor hat, denim jacket, a collar . . . read more

Review: Seven Minutes in Heaven 3: Fuck Yeah!

Review: Seven Minutes in Heaven 3: Fuck Yeah!

Courtney Trouble’s Seven Minutes in Heaven is a queer reality porn series. I am enamored with the first Seven Minutes in Heaven, and I thought Seven Minutes in Heaven 2 was pretty good as well. Seven Minutes in Heaven 3, however, feels like a step backward in ways that are difficult to articulate. The thing is, I don’t connect with many of the performers. The exceptions are the adorable and endearing Cyd Loverboy (duh, he’s amazing) and Drew Deveaux. I like Red Jackhammer, too, but Red doesn’t really do anything exciting in this installment. The rest just don’t strike me as people I want to watch fucking. Let’s leave it at that.1 I was excited about the length of Seven . . . read more

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Advanced Fellatio

Review: Tristan Taormino's Expert Guide to Advanced Fellatio

I’m not big on blowjobs in porn. I don’t hate them, but I’ll usually only watch a couple minutes of a blowjob, then fast-forward to whatever’s next. Thus, I wasn’t as excited for Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Advanced Fellatio as I was for, say, Rough Sex. And while Advanced Fellatio isn’t typical-porn-blowjob boring, it’s very much a niche movie. You need to love watching blowjobs to thoroughly enjoy it. Advanced Fellatio begins with a 50-minute workshop. The anatomy section is actually pleasurable to watch, as snippets from pornstars are interspersed throughout Tristan’s lesson. Also, this probably shouldn’t have made me laugh, but it did: “the prostate is about the size and shape of a walnut. But it shouldn’t feel like . . . read more
