Looking for Porn With Something Different? Check out Erika Lust!

I want to pay some serious tribute to Erika Lust, she’s put out several erotic films and guide books, and from what I’ve seen it seems to me like she’s got a bit of magic up her sleeve like she’s been able to tap into something fresh and new. I must admit, I haven’t seen or read everything she’s done, but again, from what I have seen and read it’s been something worth talking about, which is why I want to tip my hat and scream to the world “this is amazing!”

The three items I want to focus on in this review are Life Love Lust DVD, Five Hot Stories for Her DVD, and GOOD PORN: A Woman’s Guide Book .

My first experience with something that Erika Lust had done was the book GOOD PORN: A Woman’s Guide; it was given to me by a friend of mine who insisted I read it. The book is full of diverse resources for really awesome female-focused and feminist porn. Since I work in a store full of great feminist porn it had never really occurred to me to search for what else is out there, but I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself saying “I really need to bookmark these websites, they sound amazing!”.

There are also helpful tables, charts, and a glossary to help distinguish what you may or may not be looking for in certain genres of porn. When reading the first quarter of the book I could tell she was very passionate about having good feminist porn readily available. I could also tell she was very frustrated with most of the porn out there, especially in the mainstream, that isn’t female-friendly. Sometimes I felt like her frustration with mainstream porn overshadowed the message she was trying to convey, but after pushing through, I finished reading the book I really understood my friend’s admiration.

After reading about Erika Lust’s erotic films in her book I had high expectations when I finally got to watch Life Love Lust and I was not disappointed. I immediately fell in love. The film has a completely different style and presentation then I’ve seen in other films. I was amazed at how effortlessly each story was created with little to no dialogue, and even though they were each short, I felt like they were complete, whole and interesting enough to hold my attention through to the end. For the first time when watching porn I was sad that the movie was over because I wanted more scenes! I would definitely say my motto for this film is “quality over quantity.

The first scene in this film is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in porn. Without giving away too much of the good stuff I will say that the couple in the first scene have really good chemistry and a very seemingly genuine interaction. It was just enough plot that it made my little heart melt for the sappy stuff, and also to get invested in the sex and why they were having it. The two other scenes in this film are also pretty steamy. The second scene is a little hard to follow if you don’t pay attention because there’s no dialogue (and if there is it’s in Spanish); so if you’re a plot nerd like me make sure to keep your eyes peeled in this scene.

In the last scene there are two foxy ladies who have a super hot sensual massage. But let’s not forget about the bonus scene in the extra’s menu, called handcuffed. I’m sure you won’t need a whole lot of guesses to figure out what it’s about. I really appreciate that this scene is in the extra’s menu. It means you can intentionally choose to watch it instead of being surprised. There are some folks who are not into BDSM, and for those folks having a rough scene in the middle of the movie can really take away from the whole film.

At this point, after having 2 items from Erika Lust knock my socks off, I was willing to watch anything else that came my way. I didn’t have to wait long before I got my hands on the movie Five Hot Stories for Her. This movie has 5 scenes in it, the first scene is with 2 female-bodied folks, 3 hetero-focused scenes, and the last scene has 2 male-bodied folks. That description is pretty exciting all by itself because it’s very rare to see that kind of diversity in the same movie!

Ok, so to give you some context of how awesome the first scene was for me I would like to say that I typically do not like watching scenes with 2 female-bodied folks in it. For me what is hot about porn is the fantasy and novelty of it; so I tend to not get into dyke porn. But when I started watching Five Hot Stories for Her and the first scene came on my jaw dropped to the floor and I literally started drooling. Needless to say, it’s pretty freakin’ amazing visually as well as how the plot draws you in and builds up the main character. The four other scenes are full of beautiful shots with beautiful people, and the story-lines lived up to my expectation. But what I keep coming back to in this movie is that first incredible scene.

Everything gets a big hearty two thumbs-up from me!
