Soft Porn Sunday: Jenna Jameson & Danny Masterson

Yeah, I know what you're thinking, right? Jenna Jameson, hardcore. But I'm reading How To Make Love Like A Porn Star at the moment and, as it turns out, she did a lot of softcore in her earlier days. Not that it is particularly early days for Jenna at the moment, but this is, perhaps, the first softcore scene I've ever heard her do. And it's very tongue-in-cheek, as well.
Jenna comes across as a really affable person in her book, which is good, because it's always a shame when you come into contact with someone you've long admired from afar, and they turn out to be a bit of a prat. I haven't experienced that so much (
I've even met Boris Johnson - in the street - and he was nice enough even though I wouldn't vote for him), and I'd imagine (although I'd need to meet one to actually know) that porn stars, who have to put up with a lot, might be some of the nicest of all. In any case, here's the scene.

Appearance: Dirt Merchant (1999)
Characters: Dirt Merchant & Holly So Tightly

"Sorry for using you like a helpless sack of meat, but, y'know, sometimes a girl's just gotta have it." Holly
gives the Dirt Merchant a consoling smile and floats away.
I wouldn't need an apology if I were the eponymous Dirt Merchant. Holly So Tightly (what a name - cheesy as hell, but if you've ever seen Buford's Beach Bunnies, you will have had to put up with Amber Dextrous for an hour and a half, so you'll forgive that) has been vigorously riding him in her swimming pool, letting out apoplectic grunts of lust - as you do, you know. The Dirt Merchant looks as if he's having fun, but taking a bit of a battering. All in all, it's good sex.

This is an odd film, to be sure. Slacker-turns-PI goes off to solve a rock star's murder. And billed as a comedy. But I may have to dig out a copy and give it a watch, because I like some of the lines I've heard from it (see above), and
I like this scene, even though it may not strictly be softcore. The sex bit is very brief and it's hammed up beyond all measure (think Sex and the City without trying to work out why it's Sarah Jessica Parker), but then again, that's not what this film is for.

Jenna looks really nice here. I'll admit to having enjoyed a few of her harder scenes - they're all over the darker corners of the Internet - and she looks OK in those (she's a very attractive lady). But here she looks especially nice. It's a good bit of inoffensive nudity and, under the careful narration of the Dirt Merchant, we get a gratuitous
naked swimming scene. Hooray!

But what really wins me over about this scene is the quality of the acting. It's actually really good. It's real acting, with real dialogue and real cinematography. Both Jenna and Masterson are putting in good performances. The voices, the body language, the situation - even the relevance to the plot. It all fits together like a jigsaw. With boobs. And togerher, Jenna and Masterson have good chemistry - their act is particularly good when they are bouncing lines off each other.

So, all in all, this isn't a scene which I'd use when I'm wanting to get particularly het up. It may work to get me a little hot under the collar, but what I present it here as is a good example of how sex scenes don't need to be cheesy or irrelevant, very brief flashes of sex can be hot, films can take you by surprise...

...and that the world's favourite porn star can really act.
