Just...just buy it. you will not be disappointed. It is so hot, the cast is hot. There's butches and femmes and all those between, and they all fuck eachother. There's different races...just buy it.
Shine Louise Houston is the Director of The Crash Pad, one of the hottest queer porns on the market. She's also done another film, SuperFreak, but The Crash Pad is by far the best erotic video to come out of the queer community, in my opinion.
My wife and I, as a rather mainstream heterosexual couple, were not turned on by this movie. Although we appreciate what this film is attempting, we were both surprised by how much action was focused on stap-ons. Also, the set was small and the actors looked uncomforably hot (as in temperature hot).
HAWT! I recommend this to ANYONE interested in reviewing authentic queer and/or female sexuality or people who just love porn. Butches, femmes, bois, people of color, 3-way double penetration, gallons of female ejaculation, and fistfuls of orgasms are what's in store for you. Check out their other videos: "Superfreak and soon to be released "In Search of the Wild Kingdom."
Every once in a while, among the hundreds or thousands of sexually explicit video releases each year, there comes along a truly great offering that rises head and shoulders above that crowd. The Crash Pad is one of those rare gems. Those were some beautiful, gloriously queer women making this video, more power to them. As a calibration point, I think the last video that provoked that response from me was Hard Love/How to Fuck in High Heels (especially the former). Under Pros I included authenticity. In her director's interview, Ms. Houston spoke of things like the long fingernails common in many mainstream, phony-feeling girl-girl porn scenes - none of those here. Beyond such obvious markers it is more difficult to be specific, but the feeling watching this video is the cast is doing things they find pleasurable (very much so!) rather than what the San Fernando Valley formula for making a porn says should be pleasurable or included in the video. Perhaps one of the highest callings of porn is helping us all share our humanity. (If you don't think that makes any sense just listen to Betty Dotson explain how girly magazines relieved her of fears that her genitals were deformed.) Kudos to director Houston for being such an effective conduit for shared humanity between her cast and viewers.
Okay, so I got this thinking I might catch a hot Butch/femme couple get it on. I much prefer the realistic look of Butch cock over what was presented. The "dildo" scenes were not sexy. Some scenes were okay, but mostly the chemistry was not there. I really expected more. Honestly most of the scenes just had a weird energy about them. I am no porn connoisseur but I have to say, this one did not deserve the accolades it got.
My friend bought this movie recently and lent it to me to borrow, telling me that it was really hot. I had no idea! Perhaps it's because I've become too used to the trash that's generally out there (most notably the free online stuff) but I got so turned on by this movie.
This is what porn should be.
