When Candida Royalle stated in an interview with AVN, that she was making erotic films especially for women, I thought. “Yeah, right. Well, we’ll see.” And see, I did. Urban Heat is one of the most erotic, sensual, passion-filled, pleasurable XXX-rated tapes this reviewer has seen in quite awhile. The acting is fine, the visual quality excellent, and most importantly, the sex is fantastic! It’s hot, exciting, and also, nice!
Basically, Urban Heat consists of a sexual music video. The tape consists of seven vignettes, all set to music, with no dialogue and no connecting storyline. The action is all heterosexual, two people making love. And this is vital to the attractiveness of this feature. The sex shown is not just blind, agitated, “let’s go for the most movement and most unusual position f**king.” (Although I will admit, that does have its place.) It is lovemaking, between two involved persons. What a great idea for porn… real people, in realistic situations, doing real things to each other. How unusual!
The action takes place in a variety of settings… we open at a disco, with a very hot scene between two dancers (Sharon Kane and David Israel-Sandler, who both look great), and go to a couple, gently waking each other up (Taija Rae and Scott Baker), to a chance encounter on an elevator, through a number of others. The scene in a kitchen between Carol Cross and Bernard Daniels is especially well done. Throughout, there remains a sense of mutual gratification and pleasure-giving. There are no requisite close-up insertion shots, no graphic come shots, no horrible overdubbing, and there is no stupidity… just passionate, sensual encounters, among the hottest and most erotic to hit video in years.
Now granted, Urban Heat won’t appeal to everyone’s taste. There are probably those of you who like seeing men come on women’s faces, who like threesomes, lesbian scenes, mild bondage, etc. But Urban Heat proves that sex can be nice, and wholesome, and still be extraordinarily exciting. If you want an adult tape to share with your female mate, or are female and looking for something truly sensual and erotic (and not just male fantasies splayed across the screen) then get Urban Heat. It is truly a rare treat.
