The Overnight (2015)
Laugh-out loud funny sex comedy, a must watch !!
Excellent, smartly written very funny sex comedy.
Has none of the gross out teenage comedies type of humor.
Excellent and very funny script and dialogues - there were moments that actually made me laugh out loud !!
Those looking for erotic titillation move on - the themes, dialogues and settings are very adult but not erotic or softcore
They are more played out for laughs - and very effectively so!
There is one mildly sexy FMFM 4some scene that however quickly breaks up unexpectedly in a most funny way, in keeping with the spirit and theme of the movie.
And the twist near the end of the movie - nicely done !!!
Two thumbs up, definitely a must-watch!
Naked Snctm (2017)
Intriguing, at first, then rapidly boring after a few episodes ....
I watched this series on Showtime After Dark. I guess Showtime put it in that category more because most of the main "action" scenes are shot in low light rather than due to actual adult content which, while there is quite a bit of (especially female full frontal, and as is consistent with the current standards of hypocrisy, no male full frontal), the adult content is not in any way more explicit or shocking than any of the famous yet more "regular" cable shows.
The show runs one season only and has eight 30-min episodes. It follows the founder of Snctum and his crew. Snctum is an LA-based high-end Sex Club that creates sensual erotic black-tie masquerade party erotic experiences for so-called "elite" members who are willing to pony up many 1000's of dollars for a dip into this .......er ....forbidden pool ....??
Each episode takes you behind the scenes, the selection process, the work that goes into each party (obviously a LOT of hard work there) and it comes as NO SUPRISE that the "management" of this whole production obviously gets so busy putting it all together that they do not or cannot participate in the "festivities" except the founder who seems to get some action as well ..... hmmmm.... not much of leading by example here ....???
In between there is also the expected backstory about the founder trying to reconnect and make good with his family about the whole thing - an attempt to add some genuine emotional drama to the whole thing - but not sure if anyone is buying that including his own family, who obviously seems to be pushing back on this as a long-term life-strategy ....?
After a couple of episodes it becomes rapidly boring as there is nothing new to be said or seen. It is the same masked masquerade erotic party action that each episode ends with - a lot of people hanging around in semi-darkness just watching trying to figure out what to do or not do anything at all. Paid performers gamely and spiritedly do all they can to up the erotic atmosphere and create all kinds of action - most of it of the fetish kind (think all kinds of weird masks, whips, girls hanging and twirling etc etc). Everyone is masked all the time and the lighting is obviously purposely kept low - clearly the message is this is not something that can be brought out into the ....er...open sunlight...... Some brave souls jump in and turn into participants from voyeurs and the camera is pretty coy about showing any explicit action, which in any case is not helped by the fact of the low light and that before 27 mins are up the episode is over and the next episode is ready to start which feels more or less like the previous episode - not least because duh !!! its the same crew organizing the same things and everyone else is masked !!! ..... so nothing new to see here ......
Its not clear to me why I would fork out many many 1000's of dollars for a so-called exclusive high-end elite masked erotic experience when I can get MUCH MUCH better and hotter action in a privately organized swinger sex party or orgy with some of the hottest couples hand-picked which I do regularly and we all share and split the costs - and its way more hotter and sexier and we can all SEE each other clearly for heaven's sakes!! To me the KEY THING about sex, especially group sex, is I need to be able to see my partners faces, reactions everything - that is a HUGE part of the turn-on - and a black-tie masked party with people wearing weird masks in low light hanging around - does NOT help that at all.
5-stars for some quick entertainment - but thats all !!
Polyamory: Married & Dating (2012)
Fascinating, Intriguing, entertaining - and NOT for the obvious reasons you may think of
I watched this on Showtime After Dark which carries all the adult softcore content.
Lets get the elephant out of the room first - those looking for some, or lots of softcore/hardcore erotic action may be disappointed. Yes there is some good bit of erotic action and the action is almost all of the group sex kind but none of it is for gratuitous titillating viewing. In fact even the frequency of such "action" scenes is low and it is almost always short with quick editing and cuts. But what action there is full frontal with complete nudity.
Other more mainstream series - think GOT, Girls, Girlfriend experience etc - or some mainstream movies - have more hardcore action shown.
Lets come to the content and plot. Showtime is carrying two seasons with 8 episodes each.
The series follows a group of Polyamorists in Southern California (where else!!) - as they juggle their time, families, jobs etc along with following their hearts (& loins) chasing and trying to retain and juggle and negotiate multiple lovers at the same time. And you can expect all combinations of lovers !!
Kudos to the entire cast for putting it all "out there" and exposing themselves - literally and emotionally - on national TV holding nothing back.
Kudos to the crew directors and everyone for putting together a very slick documentary shot and edited extremely well.
Among the main protagonists is Kamala Devi - who is kind of the "Queen Mother" lets say over this commune of Polyamorists. There is a lot of material by her on the internet and mainstream media - check kamaladevi.com. Apparently she has even given TED talks on Sexuality and Polyamory
Polyamorists clearly want to differentiate themselves from and keep away from the label of Swingers. The former do not look upon their lifestyle as one for recreational sex. It is one for literally - having many lovers (hence the word) who or which is supposed to enhance your life - and after you watch the series you may find yourself compelled to grant them a few points and arguments.
However- and this is also the obvious reason why Polyamory is not and cannot be mainstream - the series neatly skirts all the obvious questions and problems related with legality and possessiveness - most obvious being the children.
Also - the TREMENDOUS AMOUNT of discussion and communication - what they call "processing" involved - and the slightest noise or perturbation that can cause emotional flare-ups or jealousy at the least - which they all gamely try to discuss and process their way through and out of - all this makes you think and wonder how emotionally draining all this could be and how much of one's time this might all take up. It all seems a bit too much !! And in fact season 2 ends with one Polyamory live-in threesome seriously reconsidering this Lifestyle.
Its hard enough with one family or partner and children etc etc. Imagine now every week or month you are trying to add new "Lovers" to the family .....is this a pursuit or rat race worth being in permanently in the grand scheme of things?
Isn't it not enough to settle with one family/spouse/partner - keeping to the elegant philosophy of "Less is More" (as also espoused by the Buddha and other religious leaders in history).
Also - you cannot help but think that all this is - at the end of it all - in the service of the itch of an unending Carnal drive - what they euphemistically call NRE - or New Relationship Energy (Great Word Spin there !!! one learns something new every day).
:Or - Like the regular monogamous sister of one of the polyamorists comments sarcastically - "Wow! your vagina must be quite sore from all the constant action with all of your lovers". Ouch!!
One cannot help but wonder whether this is a very clever and long-term strategy to legitimately and openly have as much sex as possible with as many partners as possible while at the same time not impacting your "primary" family - so why not try and make all of your lovers and sex partners (or f..k buddies) a part of your family too ???
Hmmm ....quite smart and clever if you strip away all of the pseudo spiritual, tantric, new-agey, soft-emotional touchy-feely language that this is all dressed up in, apparently.
Great vicarious viewing pleasure, lots of drama - but after two seasons it becomes repetitive.
At the end of it all - this cannot match the richness variety complexity and the compelling urgencies of the more regular "monogamous" world which has all the fascinating drama, excitement challenges and adventures you may want - to last you more than many lifetimes.
Otherwise good for some entertaining binge watching - definitely a well-done series.
I would say worth a look but see and decide for yourself!!!
