You can tell a bit of effort was put into the scenery and camera angles. They're excellent. The clothing is well-suited to each time period and scene, and we even get to see bare feet and not all high heels during sex, which makes me cringe. Stilettos and bare flesh? *shudder* The music is tasteful, not the standard bump and grind porno sound.
The sex is...better. A bit more time is spent on foreplay than a typical porn movie and the scenes don't run overly long. One of my pet peeves with erotic movies is a sex event that goes on and on. After a while, it just gets boring. My honey, who is male, agrees with me on this so it's not just a woman's perspective. Condoms are used discreetly throughout, another plus in my book.
While not award-winning material, the acting is well done and not every single female actor has implants. Again, it's obvious some effort was made to come up with a story and a plot and to give us a variety of body shapes. Yes, they're all hot, but not all the same.
The first DVD we viewed was Taste of a Woman. The costumes in this are first-rate. We know the actors are going to be naked most of the time, but it's nice to see clothing being removed and period pieces are especially fun. The scenery was perfect and the lighting just right to give the feeling of a different time and place.
Whispering Hearts was next. I'm not into cowboys, but I enjoyed the story line, the gorgeous scenery, and shots of a bare-chested man on his horse. There's a nice round of sex in the dining room between a cute couple, with great camera angles looking down on the woman. I love the bare feet in this one, don't care for the boots worn in several of the other shots. This tale has an FFM and an MFM scene for a little variety, though the main story is about the lonely cowboy and a rich woman.
This set of DVDs is still geared more towards men than women, as are most erotic movies. See my previous post about porn. The filmmakers do a nice job with these flicks, however, and we'll be purchasing more. I'll review the other two discs, which were my favorites, in a later post.
