Not really rough...at all

This DVD disappoints me so severely, I could not even masturbate to it. Seriously, the poor camera angles and lack of significant rough sex makes this DVD seem almost soft core if not for the deep-throats.

extremely useful review
Plain and simple, this is almost like Playboy produced a rough sex DVD. This is the softest rough sex I have ever seen. Sure there is some spanking, hair pulling, and anal; however, this was few and far between. The roughest (if you care to call it that) sexual act is deep-throating, and even that is thoroughly watered down. Sure, I was not expecting Sasha Grey to get donkey punched, but I *did* expect some rough sex in there. What I got was standard, run of the mill sex with angry faces.

The first scene begins with Adrianna in the shower with Marco manhandling her. As with the rest of the DVD, this was really not rough at all with the exception of some spanking and hair pulling. Furthermore, Marco has such odd facial expressions that it takes more concentration to pay attention to the scene instead of laughing at him. The redeeming feature of this scene sees Marco blow his load in Adrianna's hair. Next, Satine and Derrick have the best scene with an encounter against a car in the middle of nowhere. My girlfriend and I felt this was the best scene on the DVD as it was rougher than the rest; however, shoddy camera work made it difficult to enjoy the scene.

Third, a couple partakes in a bit of Femdom. From my point of view, neither performer seemed into the scene which I took as them simply going through the motions. Finally, Sasha Grey's scene really let me down. Perhaps I have seen so much of her work, I had too high standards, but, no real pain was dished out nor did the scene seem any different than the "vanilla" porn you would see elsewhere.

I expected innovative scenes and creative camera work. I was very wrong. The scenes are nothing spectacular even in the porn world. Wow, some chick boned against her car. Whoppee fucking do. The camera work is atrocious. Seriously. At times, it is shaky, not focusing on the action, or focusing on the wrong part of the scene. In one instance, a female performer's ear was the center of attention for a few seconds during an oral sex scene. Sure, it was only for a few seconds, but I expect moderately professional camera work.
Experience
Though I appreciated the female's fantasys, this DVD had the vibe of being a how-to video while, at the same time, not being very informative. I assume Sasha Grey would have a plethora of knowledge to give on the subject, but it felt tedious. At first, I thought I was bored out of my mind because most guys are visually stimulated; however, my girlfriend watched it with me and she was the one suggesting we skip through their speeches. I ended up having sex with my girlfriend during the DVD; not because we were particularly turned on, but because we were both tremendously bored and wanted something to do.

If you are looking for a how-to on rough sex, do not use this DVD. If you are looking for material to get you and your significant other ideas and to get each other in the mood, skip this DVD. In fact, just skip this altogether.

    Great review! I am sorry you didn't like this one. I have had it on my wishlist for awhile, because so many others gave it a good review. Hmmm... will have to rethink this one.

    "Sure, I was not expecting Sasha Grey to get donkey punched, but I *did* expect some rough sex in there."

    This made my morning, gave me a giggle fit. Thanks for the review! I think I'd dislike this DVD just as much, since it doesn't exactly sound like "rough sex" to me, either.

    OUCH " I ended up having sex with my girlfriend during the DVD; not because we were particularly turned on, but because we were both tremendously bored and wanted something to do. " That SUX. Well it's great you had some sex but bored, need something to do sex while watching a porn is just the suxor!
    Thanks for the heads up and I think this deserves a nomination!
