Vivid-Alt's latest title – also its first offering from director Vena Virago – sees the company creating porn that is both thoughtful (gasp) and sexy.
Virago is an artist, that's for sure, and not in that horrible, idiosyncratic one-man-show type of way. She's actually able to take what might have become gonzo fodder and created something incisive and fun. Those who are interested in what actually brings two fuck birds together to their cum-stained bed need to check Virago's work out.
Each scene is preceded by an interview with the cast; the performers discuss everything from personal background to personal turn-on's – and the sex is hot too!
Lexi Bardot's tryst with Alex Gonz is a sure stand-out. Bardot is a bonified slut and Gonz does a great job at bringing the sex pot out of her.
Michelle Aston puts the synthetic wood to Page Morgan. Tyler Knight gets a pair of hot scenes; one with Dana DeArmond and another the gorgeous Rebeca Linares.
Eastside Story is topped off with some great music, slick DVD menus and excellent packaging; the proverbial topping on this pornographic cake.
