Critical Rating: AAAA
Sexephrenia is a "mock-umentary" taking place in a welfare hotel, which houses numerous dysfunctionals who've succumbed to a strain of nymphomania/satyriasis. Sort of One Blew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, if you will. They're a fascinating but ultimately pathetic batch of losers – paranoids, mutes, alcoholics, and a congenital idiot who sings a karaoke a cappella. (Finally! The role Hank Rose was born to play.)
Of the seven erotic sexual encounters contained within, we must mention: sweat-drenched Rocco ramrodding Cody O'Connor; Tom Byron ferociously 69'ing with Brittany O'Connell; and Debi Diamond giving her patented upside-down blowjob to T.T. Boy – who then reams Beatrice Valle's porthole. There's three other scenes of equal merit, and only one dog in the lot. (A certain aforementioned gentleman who can hold a tune far longer than his erection.)
What prevents this feature from garnering even more points is the singularly depressing nature of the drama, which dwells far too long on the terrible pasts of the "interviewees". Ironically, AVN acting nominations should abound from Sexephrenia – particularly Silvera, who's absolutely chilling as the paranoid.
Technically, as with all John Leslie features, everything is excellent. And extra points for trying something different and still maintaining a superb level of heat.
Definitely one to stock for your John Leslie section.
