One House + One Day = One A.
The above formula is starting to prove true as the cheap look of some of these sexvids, along with the apparent quickness that they are being done, wears on one's nerves. Joanna's Dreams was viewed by this reviewer and a lady friend who kept begging that I turn it off.
The tried-and-true (and worn thin) premise has Tiffany Blake unable to enjoy sex and after a lesbian sequence with friend Gayle Sterling, is enticed to see psychiatrist Joey Silvera. Guess what? She recounts her fantasies. That's where the one house part of the formula comes in (all of the sex is shot in the same house), making for very boring settings. And the performers are often listless during the sex.
For example, John Leslie really looks like he's having a tough time with Nikki Knights in a very long and dull scene. When Billy Dee seduces Tiffany in yet another living room stint, she seems tired and ready for anything else to do. Hey, even the orgy brings little eroticism.
After a boring opening the tape shapes up technically, displaying some well done juxtapositioning in the sex scenes. But Joanna's Dreams shapes up as a sexual nightmare, especially if you want to be subjected to the near impossible - dull sex.
