Penny Flame's Guide to Rough Sex - dvd by Vivid - review by Beautiful Dreamer

Rough Sex is oh so good!

This DVD goes over rough sex in a very basic manner. It goes over safety, communication, and consenting- which are key in any sexual relationship especially one involving rough sex. The educational pieces are informative and sure to especially help those just getting into rough sex. The scenes are not only informative, but also hot as hell to watch.
Couples seem into it, educational piece is useful, commentary during the scenes can be turned off.
No condoms used though there was a safe sex educational piece at the end.

I’m into rough sex. Biting, slapping, choking, pulling hair, dirty talk: count me in. So when I that Vivid was releasing a Rough Sex DVD directed by Penny Flame and shot by Tristan Taormino: I knew I had to get this.

The DVD starts with short interviews about how the performers all genuinely enjoy rough sex- something important in any adult DVD. This carries throughout the DVD- you can really tell all partners are truly into it. After a short intro from Penny, they go over the fact that Rough sex involves a lot of communication and a lot of trust. It isn’t about violence, abuse, or force: this is important to me that this was addressed.

Safe words are gone over: Red, Mercy, Red light are all mentioned. Penny reminds us to make sure to take off all jewelry before sex- something I can personally attest to (a solitaire to the face hurts). She also goes over the importance of hydration (protect those kidneys!) and safety with bondage. I wish they would have gone over choking right with the rest of the educational portion of this DVD. The choking demonstration is in the bonus area.

The beginning segment is very basic, but even for more experienced people, it’s a good watch, though I probably won’t watch it again. It’s fun, yet educational. It’s about 15 minutes long, so not so long that you get bored. Mia, the assistant, is very hot and the fun chemistry between her and Penny makes it more enjoyable.

The first scene starts with interviews with both people participating. I think this is excellent as rough sex requires knowing each other, trusting each other, and communicating. We can see where each participant is coming from. And now for the good stuff- the actual sex rocks in this DVD. It’s refreshing to see couples go at it like I do in my bedroom. You can watch the scenes with or without instruction.

There are some scenes I don’t care for- rough blow jobs being one of them. But others may enjoy these. If you are someone who likes rough sex or are curious, this is definitely a good choice as there are three different scenes and as well as a short bonus scene. This DVD is lacking in a scene that both partners are rough with each other, rather than just one being the more dominant.

The fact there is a condom over the Hitachi is priceless, as condoms aren’t actually used during the scenes. They do have a safer sex tid bit hidden in the bonus features, though it seems odd that it’s there as the DVD doesn’t practice what it preaches. The actually information given for the safe sex piece is good though. It’s one of the few places I’ve seen safer oral sex, rimming, hand jobs, and fingering promoted and demonstrated, so bonus points. AND they went over safe sex practices with toys.

    Good point; it would be nice to see a scene where both participants are rough. But still, it's totally awesome. I'm glad you liked it as much as I did!
  • Beautiful Dreamer
    It is still undeniably good. Thanks for the comment!

    Strange that the Hitachi is all that gets the condom Smile

    This sounds like a good one for my wish list - about how long is the runtime?

    There has been quite a bit of discussion going on lately about use of safety products in porn...or extreme lack thereof. The overwhelming convention wisdom is that the customer doesn't want to see condoms in porn. I am glad to see they included something, even if they didn't practice it themselves. I think if the industry just made it a point to change, the "customer" would get over it.

    Sammi- It is close to 90 minutes long, excluding bonus scenes.
    LicentiouslyYours- I entirely agree about the condoms. They should be used. I can't say everyone feels the same as me, but I cringe every time I realize they are not using protection. It's literally playing Russian Roulette with your health. Thanks for the comment.
