Tenderness, the second movie from female director Lisa Loves, continues to delve into the sensuousness of erotic play in and out of the bedroom. Exploring the beauty of the male and female form and the pleasures that can be experienced make this another sure hit with exploring couples.
A slow, sensual bit of eye candy, this Dutch import seeks to provide eroticism in small packages, with all-sex vignettes that feature seduction and foreplay which seem as important as the actual hardcore sex. With wall-to-wall music right out of a hotel spa, this is something best digested in small doses, perhaps as part of foreplay for couples. Stroking material this is not.
Beautiful blonde Vanessa Jordin sucks James Brossman’s big cock skillfully, if in slow motion, eventually fucking him in a very pretty scene. It’s the best coupling in the movie, although Madison Parker gets her ass fucked by Choky Ice in the most non-salacious anal scene I’ve ever watched. Zara and Bambi portray a cute female couple who passionately kiss and devour each other’s pussies. The other boy/girl scenes are similar to the first, with Sorana and Mugur providing a couple of sparks, and Cameron Cruise and John Cruise fucking for the sake of it. By that final scene, either they lacked energy or I was just worn out from the deliberate pacing, but it came off as the weakest of the five.
Nice to look at and definitely not offensive in any way, Tenderness probably plays best to the crowd that buys the Playgirl series. A very short BTS featuring an interview with director Lisa Loves highlights the extras.
