And I wanted a nice erection to go to bed with, which was the main reason I used to watch soft porn in those days.
Appearance: Justine - In The Heat of Passion (1996)
Characters: Ursula & Unidentified Male #1 vs. Madame Souvray & Unidentified Male #2, plus Unidentified Male #3, plus Justine. Oh, and a bear.
I get the feeling I'm going to need to explain this one.
Justine is a series made by the same team behind Emmanuelle in Space (although I don't know if Siritzky had anything to do with it - I can't find any information that either confirms or denies this). It's filmed in the same style, featuring a lot of the same actors (minus Krista Allen), and - like those films - contains seven instalments, all with increasing amounts of sex in fairly exotic locations at the sacrifice of plot. Some of the scenes even have the same "carousel" effect - a slowly rotating camera cleverly positioned in front of some scenery, with a hidden 3D feature that appears if you don red/cyan glasses.
The difference - and it's quite a big difference, when you think about it - is that Justine herself (Daneen Boone), the eponymous main character, doesn't actually have a lot of sex. She's portrayed as a barely-legal college student who's on a research trip with her tutor, about whom she fantasises a lot. Most of the sex, at least in the first film in the series, is in dream sequences or performed by her openly sexual pal Ursula (Kimberley Rowe).
This scene is both.
It's a cluttered scene, bookended by Justine, on a bed in some sort of negligée, calling Ursula at their
|She's all heart. Heart and legs.|
As the camera rotates around, Ursula continuing to have sex while attempting to carry out a conversation, we see that, in the same room, their tutor Madame Souvray (yes, really), played by Jennifer Behr, is also in the room, riding another unidentified, uncredited male. This is, in fact, the position all participants stay in for the entirety of the scene, with plenty of mix shots and cuts, but never straying from the "woman astride" position which both ladies start off in.
Into this mix throw Unidentified Male #3, a man who comes in to take photographs ("Oh hai!" says
|'Phone bill must be enormous.|
Okay, so there are two hot women having bouncy sex with unidentified faceless men; why do I like this scene so much? Well, I've noticed some details, and they are:
- Ursula keeps the 'phone to her ear throughout the entire scene, complete with cord. She even attempts a few snatches of conversation with Justine - which I quite like. Justine's interrupted her in flagrante delicto and she just keeps going!
- Ursula and Madame Souvray are both in the cowgirl position, but they're facing in different directions: Ursula's facing his head; Madame Souvray's facing his feet.
- Unidentified Male #1 spends the whole of his time holding a large, conspicuous teddy bear (he hits Ursula over the head with it at one point, presumably in a failed donkey punch attempt...), usually in front of Ursula's vulva. We don't get to see any of it - but I suppose it's a better form of censorship than pixelisation, or just pretending she doesn't have one...
- The sex itself is quite fun. It's just riding, but there's a lot of effort put into it.
- Justine is completely oblivious, even though it should be perfectly clear what's going on.
"Ursula, have you got boys in there again?" she eventually gets around to saying. "You'll get in trouble with Madame Souvray."
"Hold on, I'll check," Ursula replied between moans, before she turns and shouts, "Madame Souvray? Am I in trouble?"
At which point Justine wakes up. It was all a dream, you see, a glorious dream, like the ending of Super Mario Bros. 2, except with more sex and a teddy bear for no apparent reason.
I've always thought this scene was hot (creepy photographer guy notwithstanding, that bit's strange).
|It's a jungle out there!|
Rowe, in particular, is giving it her all, riding away lustfully, making most of the noises (there are a lot of noises...). Were it just her, I'd probably enjoy this scene more, actually - as what she's doing is enough. Jennifer Behr is pretty too, but would it kill you to have two separate scenes for each, without a creepy photographer guy?
But it's all pretty well-put-together, as a whole. There's just as much thought in this as there is in the Emmanuelle scenes. Maybe it isn't quite as good in some areas, but it's not really the same, so you can't blame Justine. It's not as well-established a series and was bound to get lower viewing figures. That we get a sex scene this good in the first episode is something of a blessing, actually.
I just wish I had a version in English, though! My one's in German!
