AFTER looking back at the crop of fantasy-inspired titles by Digital Playground and celebrating its Blu-ray release, it was high time that we revisited Nurses.
This movie has it all: a starlet studded line-up; light S&M across the board; and attentive health practitioners to take your temperature orally, and reciprocate anally.
At more than three hours, this feature is the pinnacle of the DP series—quite possibly the best the studio has released. Almost every scene is a FFM threesome with plenty of hard sex, spanking, choking and enthusiastic participation on both sides.
Sasha Grey has a memorable moment as an incredibly helpful Candy Striper and the finale—with one lucky bastard molested by Jesse, Riley, Katsuni, Stoya and Shay—is enough to induce a genuine cardiac arrest.
Director: Antonio Adamo
Starring: Viva Style, Julia Taylor, Boroka Balls, Caty, Nikky Blond, Claudia Rossi
DARING is beginning to leave its mark as a producer of high quality porn. Consider it a European cousin to Digital Playground, with impressive production values, stunning women (most of whom are not silicon-enhanced—a pleasant change) and actors who really enjoy their work.
And it shows. This story, about fashion models-cum-porn stars, is full to bursting with non-stop hard action, and throws in a One Night in Paris night-vision camera rip into the mix.
The bevy of babes is mouth-watering, and Viva Style smoulders from her first moment on camera to her scorching DP. She is more than ably joined by Nikky Blond in a spirited anal romp, and Caty, who mesmerises throughout every second she is on screen.
THE slightly misleading title would have you think this was some schlock-horror porno. Instead, you get a mess of cheerleaders who swap the casting couch for a psychiatrist’s couch as they work through their many issues.
The Doctor’s attempts at comedic therapy are laughable (for all the wrong reasons) with B-boy impersonations and (our favourite) using an ass-mould to simulate bongo drums, leading to many groans, albeit none of the sexual variety.
The Doctor’s recommendations always lead to sexual adventurism and, more often than not, anal.
The only real performance of note is by Sindee Jennings, as the rest of the cast look a tad MILFy to pass as cheerleaders. Stick with Digital Playground’s Cheerleaders; it’s a superior film in every way.
THERE are times when the reviewer is entertained as much by the taglines of a stick-flick as he is by the action featured within—sometimes more so.
The Erotic Ghost Whisperer splits the difference, sitting somewhere in the middle. While guffawing at the brilliance of “I see hot people” or “She’s a medium—but not in bra size”, the premise of having sex with spirits of the deceased is either laughable or genius.
Considering the apparitions are occasionally ‘tingling’ or in a smoky background, it might be best to go with laughable.
The only real stand-out is Katie Morgan, who offers a (ahem) spirited performance in both scenes, let down only by extraneous chit-chat. Less words, more action should be every porn director’s mantra…that, and don’t bite it!

YOU have to admire Steven Soderbergh for trying something different with The Girlfriend Experience. It’s not often an Oscar-winning director (he picked up a gold statue for 2000’s Traffic) bucks the Hollywood system and goes low-budget just for the sake of experimentation.
Set in New York in the weeks leading up to the 2008 US presidential election, the movie revolves around a high-class hooker named ‘Chelsea’ (Grey) who prides herself on providing more than just sex, whether it be dinner and a movie or just an honest conversation. Money and greed are central themes—Chelsea is looking at ways of increasing her business, her boyfriend wants more cash as a personal trainer, and her wealthy clients are worried about losing the lot in the looming Global Financial Crisis.
Soderbergh took a risk in casting porn star Sasha Grey as the film’s heroine, but she delivers an understated and beguiling performance as the confused call girl.
Although short at 74 minutes, The Girlfriend Experience effectively captures an uncertain moment in time. Unfortunately, there are no extras on the DVD, which is disappointing. An interview with Soderbergh and Grey would have been appreciated.
