Intimate Strangers, Vol. 2: Little Acts of Naughtiness (2000) from Tuna
As a quick review, this Skinemax series takes place
in a bar (Intimate Strangers) owned and operated by Nikki Fritz, Kim
Dawson, Tane McClure and Kim Yates. Each episode tells a tale about
one or more of them and/or guest stars. The stories, while simple,
are somewhat interesting, the photography is straightforward,
without a million cross fades, swirling lights, or the ol' "drag
scenery by the camera to look like they have a dolly shot" trick,
and the sound track is not as obnoxious as is the norm for softcore.
The set design is more lavish than expected, and the women always
show everything. In short, this is a very well made series.
2. Double Image is the second episode. This time Tane McClure entertains an old college boyfriend, and thinks she is still in love with him. She had a previous engagement for the following night, but won't tell him she is going out, telling him instead that she has to work a double shift. He stops in at Intimate Strangers looking for her, she isn't there, so he ends up taking her roommate, Kim Yates, home for the night. The shit hits the fan when the roomies compare notes. My favorite line from the film was McClure's answer to the question, "How was the opera." "It was all in Italian, but it was ok." Again, both women show everything.
3. The third episode is called Making Believe. This film opens with Stella Porter having sex. This scene didn't seem to have anything to do with the plot. When they finally start a story, Tane McClure is seeing someone but not really clicking with him, especially in bed. She is complaining to Kim Yates about it, and a customer within earshot suggests she try a male gigolo, namely him, who has a business called Making Believe. She goes for it, and it is everything she hoped. The episode ends with Kim asking for his phone number. Porter and McClure show everything, as is the norm for this series.
4. One Night Affair is the final episode. In this one, Dana Robbins is to be married in two days. She and her intended have agreed that they can each have a final fling the night before the wedding with no recriminations. She tells Tane McClure and Kim Yates about this, and they help her figure out a good fantasy to act out. First, Tane recounts a fantasy of a strange man staying after closing in the bar and seducing her, then Kim talks about watching her boyfriend with another woman (Fabiola). Finally, Dana chooses her own fantasy. She will wear a wig and visit the groom, pretending to be someone else, but have Kim watching from outside. I didn't find the story especially interesting this time, but again, it delivered on nudity and simulated sex, with Robbins, McClure and Fabiola showing everything.
This DVD is a real bargain, with no less than nine
different women showing everything in couples-type erotic stories,
all in good light, and in four bite-size independent stories.
