Brand Ambassador Reviews: Carnivalesq reviews 7 Minutes in Heaven

Seven Minutes in Heaven, courtesy of GoodVibes, starts out with an intro with each of the seven cast members which is interesting. Many were kind of nervous, but some people were just excited to get down to business. It’s an all amateur cast, and for some this is their first porn film. Some “ I was surprised “ experienced their first queer encounters on this film. Also, this movie, Seven Minutes in Heaven, is the first queer gonzo-style porn ever, which means it’s all sex and no plot, and endeavors to put the viewer in the scene (that’s what “Gonzo refers to). The movie is unscripted, the performers chose who they would have sex with, and what they wanted to do “ the way real life sex should be. This porn is exactly the opposite of pretty much everything in existence. It’s queer, it’s messy, it’s unscripted, the performers don’t seem focused on doing what will look good on film, but instead, are focused on what feels good for them. It’s fantastic.

I was so excited about this film before watching it, just from looking at the cover. The cast is hip, they’re nerdy, they’re funky, they’re diverse. Racially, they’re only black and white, but I feel the cast is as varied and interesting as a seven actor cast can be, with respect to the many intersecting identities and desires of each person, which include race, sexual orientation, gender identity, role (top, bottom, switch) etc. After watching it now twice three times, I can say that I really and truly loved it. There were some things I didn’t care for, though. I don’t like all the talking between sex scenes, and wish that had been saved as bonus material. I also don’t like that we never get to see Carson orgasm (THIS IS A CRIME). I love everything else without fail. I love the diversity of the actors in what they like to do and have done to them, I love the chemistry, I love the sex toys, I love the setting, I love the laughter, I love the interplay of personalities and desires.

I love Seven Minutes in Heaven.
