Synopsis:Affairs of the
Heart. The film that starts at the end and ends at the beginning.
Chronicling in flashback, the relationship of porn's new superstar, Lene,
and the ubiquitous Jon Dough. Bud Lee takes some of the hottest scenes that
can happen between a man and a woman, and plays them out with beautiful Lene,
nasty Alex Jordan and redhot redhead Brittany O'Connell. Have an Affair you
won't mind getting caught with. Affairs of the Heart. No explanation. No
excuses. Just sex.
Our Review: Though dated, this title turned an evening we'd normally roll over
and go to sleep into a nicely warm romp in the sack. Produced back
in 1993, "Affairs of the Heart" brings back a simpler time in
adult movies, when shaving was just becoming the norm and
performers gave their all and looked like they were having the
time of their lives. Without any anal or rough sex, this film
manages to keep things lively through a great looking cast having
very hot sexual encounters.
The plot is one
of those "we hate each other at first but then we find out we're
meant to be together" sort of things, where a bitchy Lene Hefner
recounts how she met her soul mate (played by Jon Dough) and their
subsequent courtship over a two year period. When they first meet
at a party, he's a slick talking entertainment industry type who
arrives with a young naive hottie (played by a convincing Brittany
O'Connell), who tries to strike up a conversation with Lene, only
to be rebuffed harshly. It seems she objects to Jon's young
companion and his superficiality, thereby causing her to take her
leave. This leads to a nice scene between Dough and O'Connell, in
which they run through the usual oral prelude, progressing to a
nice money shot from behind.
later, Dough calls on Lene again, receiving the same rejection,
though she is then shown in phone calls defending herself against
obvious attraction to him. Of course, she is having an affair with
an extremely handsome Marc Davis and the two of them turn in the
movie's best scene - a scorcher in which he actually climaxes
inside her while wearing a condom. This one ranks among our all
time favorites for its sheer authenticity and great chemistry.
An odd scene
follows with a girl/girl interlude involving Hefner and blonde
Alex Jordan, which is well done, leading to a conversation in
which Jordan and her now fiancÚ' Nick East discuss the matchmaking
possibilities of finally putting Dough and Hefner together. The
plan is to invite them to their engagement party, where they hope
the two will finally make that "love connection." Before that,
however, they make their own connection with a nice scene between
them, notable for the ferocity of Jordan's oral skills on Mr.
East's wanker, which she attacks like a staving animal. Very
nicely done, even if the scene runs a tad long.
Finally, our two
main characters hook up and discover their mutual attraction,
laughing at how they failed to hit it off over the past couple of
years. The requisite love scene follows and it was worth the wait,
as our two leads turn in great performances and finish the movie
with a flourish. In keeping with the spirit of the film, we
finished with our own flourish as well, and the lost hour of sleep
was well worth it.
In summary, we
really love this title, even if it is a bit older and less
explicit than most of the fare being produced today. There's no
anal, no rough stuff, very few extras on the DVD, and the music is
downright horrid (think bad 80's music and you get the idea).
However, with the attractive performers, great chemistry, and good
camera work, we recommend it highly.
