Soft as Silk, Sweet as Honey is a pleasing diversion that could have been much more. But as one of the characters in the film wisely states, "The story is kind of cliché. But it's only a sex movie, so that's okay."
Leslie (Lori Smith) has the hots for her girlfriend Andrea's husband. Not having had any good sex for quite a while drives her to fantasize in various manners. Sharing this with her girlfriend (Karen Summer) it leads them to conclude that they both have similar sexual taste, and their dreams are realized visually as they speak. The fantasy extensions include a lesbian interlude, a fireside gothic romance, and a raunchy four-way with Jamie Gillis and three other women.
This is one of those rare adult flicks where the characters spend almost as much time talking about sex as performing it, and had the dialogue been a wee bit sharper, this spin-off of the (non-sexual) feature film My Dinner With Andre would have proved an overwhelming success. As it stands, Soft as Silk has some smooth sex. But in building up to a climax where Leslie, Andrea, and her husband Michael share themselves – the action becomes less frenzied and uninhibited than it could (and should) have been.
