Critical Rating: AAA
Draped in black silk and lace, Amber Lynn, that tall, blonde sexual dynamo whose presence on the screen commands the viewer’s respect in a manner similar to Seka (the former world-champion blonde goddess), finally comes into her own in Futuresex. The AVN staff has watched her progress for the last year and this somewhat original sci-fi spoof provides the forum for her first good starring role. Her incredibly wonderful body and carnal abilities rivals any actress working the adult circuit today.
Futuresex deals in a world where “lust is bliss” and love, along with everything that goes along with it, is illegal. Many of this future world’s inhabitants look like members of the race group Devo. Amber portrays the commander of a room where those afflicted by love get “cured,” under the watchful eye of leader Older Brother. People engage in sex with androids, often dressed with Saran Wrap on their noses. Paul Thomas, in a decently witty role, serves as Amber’s assistant and link to a surprise ending.
While the story borrows from other porno fantasies such as Sex World, director Lawrence Cole films his sex scenes in a wholly original manner that makes most of the action extremely hot. Amidst a world where androids measure women for their moisture content, it’s essential to the viewer that at least the hardcore scenes provide a normal escape. The only question remaining is why Futuresex came out in ’85 rather than 1984? Older Brother is watching!
