The first release from Platinum X Pictures (the new production company founded by Jewel De'Nyle, Michael Stefano, Brandon Iron, Steve Holmes and Manuel Ferrara), I Love It Rough most definitely delivers truth in advertising.
A - sorry, can't resist - slap in the face to white bread, politically correct couples porn, the Iron-directed ILIR is chock full of hard-edged staples such as choking, spitting, A2M, rimming and massive facials, as well as testimonials from each female cast member about how rough they indeed like it. Just about everything your customers need to know about this production can be summed up by the rear box cover shot of Ashley Moore's kisser virtually buried beneath a torrent of glistening man muck.
The sex isn't consistently sizzling - some scenes work better than others - but taken as a whole, the tape is a strong piece of work, heralding the arrival of a new hardcore porn powerhouse. Expect lots more where this came from.
Mega-slut Moore is the perfect choice to start off this particular line, but her coupling with Nacho Vidal, while rough enough, is a bit generic. What makes the scene memorable is the coda in which half a dozen other guys blow all over her face. This reviewer has seen lots of very messy money shots in his day, but can't recall anything quite this copious this side of a full-fledged bukkake. Pre-nom it for Best Facial. Wait, we don't have that category. Well, after watching this thing, maybe we just should.
Next up is De'Nyle, who, in full-on, very convincing Dominatrix mode, verbally and physically abuses Holmes (she pisses all over his face, but this being Bush/Ashcroft era America, it's naturally blacked out), then allows him to fuck her pussy and ass, loudly getting off at the end. "I'm cumming, motherfucker," De'Nyle screams as only she can deliver such a line.
Scene three has Iron putting on a rough sex clinic with very cute Brit-whore Claire Ryder, d.p.ing her holes with twin dils, face-fucking her while pinching her nose, nailing her booty, making her bark like a dog while he walks her on all fours, shooting his thick, white spunk on her kisser, then dunking her head in the toilet to wash the funky stuff off. It's certainly not for everybody, but it's undeniably the tape's strongest scene.
The closer has another very nasty filly, Julie Night, being dragged down some stairs by Ferrara (even this grizzled reviewer had to wince at that particular bit), who takes her ass, then blows on her face. Like the opener, it's a bit generic, but becomes more memorable when he hauls her outside, where this time, a dozen guys frost her face in fine tsunami fashion.
Much of ILIR, obviously, is edgy, and Iron is careful to include disclaimers - actually, a few too many disclaimers - from all the girls that everything they're depicted doing is voluntary and of their own free will. The tape, as a matter of fact, opens with Iron asking Ryder how she responds to critics who say rough sex abuses women.
"They're wrong," she says emphatically. "They are so wrong. Because...a lot of girls like being treated rough."
ILIR also includes interviews on the same subject with the Godfather of rough sex, Max Hardcore, and one if its leading practitioners, Belladonna. But it's De'Nyle who perhaps sums it up best when she says, "If the women think they are being victimized or abused, then they need to go flip burgers for a living, because this isn't the business for them."
Brutally frank as always. Just like this tape.
