"Art of Romance" is an intimate portrayal of loving and sensual erotica, directed by the AVN Award winning Mason. Starring Anna Morna, Mia Malkova, Lia Lor and Capri Anderson, "Art of Romance" features stunning visuals, powerfully passionate sex scenes and unforgettably beautiful locations. From an erotic lingerie tease, to a gorgeous beach-side tryst, this movie is a celebration of courtship and devotion.
It’s no surprise really that veteran director Mason would want to branch out and expand into new territory. After one of the most successful directorial runs at Elegant Angel, Mason now calls the shots at Erotica X, developing a new couples line that, upon initial viewing, still carries her remarkable talent as a director, videographer and editor. Her first title out of the gate is Art of Romance, and if you thought her gonzo work was incredible, you'll find her couples fare to be nothing less.
Anna Morna gives James Deen plenty to get excited about, undressing herself and showing off her goods while James looks her over and sensually works her over well. He holds back a lot of his roughness to make the scene fit the format, and both he and Anna end this opening scene on a high sticky point. It’s followed by another sizzling scene, this time featuring Seth Gamble and Mia Malkova, who forget the camera is there and just go at it in a pretty hard-charging manner. Mason, as she learned during her days at EA, just lets the two create their own magic with little interference. Lia Lor and Giovanni Francesco also bring plenty of steamy passion and foreplay for another incredibly hot sex scene.
Mason proves to be a director who still has plenty of creative vision in her. Taking the same formula of her beautifully shot high-end gonzo productions, she tames it down and produces a softer, kinder version that will most certainly appeal to couples.
