Story driven porn that\'s perfect for the couples market.
Perceptions is a porn remake of What Women Want, the movie that granted Mel Gibson the ability to hear women's thoughts. The screenplay is surprisingly good, with actual effort being thrown into developing a storyline. The fact that it's dubbed in English is a detraction, since the dubbing makes you laugh; but the video is still an standout; they managed to put seven sex scenes into a video a that's only 100 minutes long and still tell a story.
Alex is the ad exec who is passed over for a promotion by Julia. The story follows the mainstream movie it was based on pretty well, except you're able to see Julia actually get fucked by Alex when the two enemies eventually hook up. Or maybe we saw Alex get fucked by Julia, she's a very assertive character. The video ends setting her up as the predator - she can hear men's thoughts and promises to take each up on their lustful thoughts, eventually.
The sex is good, with beautiful women that can act having sex that fits into the storyline. Julia Taylor, the woman who played Julia, is fascinating to watch as she stares into a camera while devouring a dick; because there's a story in a porn doesn't mean you can't jerk off to it. And Sandra Russo has gorgeous hair that bounces across her face as she fucks her boss on a desk to keep her job. Lots of foreplay as well - this is for couples.
Pre-nom for Best Screenplay, Best Foreign Feature Video, and Taylor gets a pre-nom for her acting and for her scene with Alex for Best Couples Sex.
