Tristan Taorminos Rough Sex Review
Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex (2009)
Director: Tristan Taormino
Cast: Adrianna Nicole, Christian XXX, Daniel Wylde, Derrick Pierce, Francesca Le, Julius Ceazher, Marco Banderas, Marie Luv, Mark Davis, Sasha Grey, Satine Phoenix
Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex is brutally sexy! It has a very cool and simple premise: five hot vixens dream up their best “rough sex” fantasies and get to live them out on camera with their most desired stud porn hunks. The idea itself is a wet dream come true, and when these sassy (or submissive) sex kittens team up with guys who like to play rough, the sparks begin to fly.
If you are into naughty role playing and hardcore, rough sex, this film is for you. They don’t fool around and there is plenty of face slapping, humiliation, degradation, whacking and general “man”-handling action going down. The sex is pretty rough and the fantasies are fairly common role-play scenarios that many women have. There are three fem-submissive scenes about being forced or taken like Adrianna Nicole’s intruder alert, Marie Luv’s punishment and Satine Phoenix’s stranded damsel meets dominant stranger. Then, there are the divas that turn the tables on their fuck obsessions such as Francesca Lee’s femdomme supremacy and Sasha Grey’s switch play. Each scene features a prelude interview of the female cast member as she talks about what’s hot and what’s not, and why “rough sex” makes her wet.
Scene 1- Adrianna and Marco
Adrianna longs for fantasy rape by an intruder who breaks into her apartment. Just as she gets out of the shower, Marco steals up behind her, grabs her, and then clasps a hand over her mouth warning her not to scream. Adrianna’s eyes go wide with fear and this scene looks like it is going to be really hot. He slaps her around a bit, chokes her, and then drags her into the bedroom like a dog on a leash. After that, the scene kind-of looses it raw edge and the intensity in those first few seconds is really never captured again. Sure, it’s rough, but there is something lacking, like my connection with the performers. While they both seem genuine, I never really get into it and I find myself critiquing it rather than enjoying the scene for what it is.
Scene 2- Satine and Derrick
Whoa! This scene is perhaps the best in the film. So fucking hot, it sizzles and the chemistry between Satine and Derrick is tangible. Not to mention that Derrick is to die for (bald, alt and tattooed, with a rock-hard body) and Satine is a sultry little minx. Satine’s fantasy is getting stranded on a lost desert road, where she meets a “kindly stranger” who offers to stay with her until someone comes for her vehicle. The sun is hot, the sand is dusty, they are sweating and flirting, and then things turn a bit dangerous. Derrick realizes no-one is coming for a while and he can have his way with her. There is a lot of foreplay which becomes increasingly rougher as he realizes, hey, she likes it. He starts pushing her around, groping her roughly, pulling her hair and smacking her face and tits and you can tell that Satine is getting so turned on and juicy before he ever starts fucking her. I can’t tell you how many times I watched this scene and came. Definitely jilling off material! Rough sex, lots of unique positions on the vintage jeep, and crowned by a choking messy forced blowjob. These two rock the screen with a riveting performance.
Scene 3 – Francesca and Christian
Christian is a magnificent brute of a man (again bald and sexy) and Francesca is a hot busty milf. She’s a bit fed up with her husband ignoring her all the time, being the perfect housewife and all, and thinks it’s time for a little pay-back. And, pay-back’s a BITCH in stilettos and corset, with a nasty attitude and the will to dominate her much larger opponent. I like my guys dominant and my bitches submissive, so for me this scene didn’t hold a lot of sexual pizzazz. Although, Christian is adorable and so submissive for such a big boy it was interesting seeing him dominated. Still, all the while she was crushing her tits and ass in his face, slapping him around, and spitting cum in his mouth (yuk!), I was wishing he’d grab her and give her a few smacks of her own. I guess for me there was a problem with the believability factor. I just didn’t believe she could dominate him in real life, and didn’t like the way she shrieked orders at him and brutalized him, when he was being such a good boy. Not that I don’t think that he can be dominated, as he seemed to like it. She just came across as a bit shrill and lacked authenticity. Still, I’m sure this is a fantasy that would appeal to many women and men who would find it hot.
Scene 4 – Marie and Julius
Marie wants to be punished for fucking around and treated like the slut she is. The fantasy sounded great and I was all for it. But, then the action starts happening, and there’s not much cussin’ and a fightin’ goin’ on here, and I’m like “Whoa, wait a minute?” Why isn’t he calling her nasty names and treating her like a little tramp, whore, slut, which she obviously wants and deserves? Man, give me ten minutes with her and I’ll have her crying and begging for more. Again, like the first scene there was no build-up, no sizzle, and it didn’t seem very rough to me, but maybe my finger pressed the fast forward button by mistake and I missed all the good stuff. Nope. Don’t think so. Weak scene, but too bad as it had potential.
Scene 5 – Sasha and Daniel
Okay, did I say that scene 2 was the best scene? Maybe I lied. To tell the truth, this scene is so hot that it rivals scene 2, and they both win best scene in my book. Smokin’ Sasha wants to play switch in a power play scenario and who does she pick?—my all-time favorite male porn star, Daniel. Daniel is known for his rough play style in many alt porn films, as much as for his playfulness. Sasha picked him because she thought he would let her slap him around, which he does and seems to like it too. They talk about what they’d like to do and Sasha defines her only limit—No tit slapping. So, the pair get it on and right from the beginning it’s a power struggle but Daniel takes over and does his nasty choking and slapping number on her. The scene has a series of peaks as it continually builds momentum, switching back and forth, while they get lost in the passion of each moment. And, then, Daniel forgets and slaps Sasha’s tits, immediately cringing like dog about to be punished. Sasha pins him on the pool table and Daniel starts apologizing profusely, and then they are snickering and laughing and back into the hot rough sex play. This scene was not only hot but so much fun. You can tell they are both getting off on it and are enjoying the ambiguity of working together for the first time.
Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex is overall a great porn if you like rough sex and some serious role-playing power exchange fantasies. It is worth it just for scene 2 and 5 alone. I applaud Tristan for giving the women in the film the chance to design their own scenarios and define what is rough and sexy to them. The production quality is pretty good in most places although the sound was off a bit sometimes and some of the camera work looked a bit shaky. The extras includes a Choking and Safety snippet with Penny Flame who teaches the proper way to choke to avoid injury which I thought was a very good idea, as no doubt a bunch of novices will see this film and want to start practicing without a clue.
