Abel Semen (3) These videos and the "original series" I mention in my review are one and the same. For whatever it's worth, King's passing shouldn't affect either of them as far as I know.

I believe Kamikaze Love was shot in its entirety late last year, and they're just taking their time rolling it out. So it's not like the loss of King affects their ability to finish the story as intended, because that has already happened.

BTW, while I don't find it sexy in the slightest, it seems to be a decent psychological thriller so far. He could certainly have had a worse swan song.

(There are three episodes out so far, if it's feature length that would point to a total of about twelve episodes. It's clear from the trailer that a lot of footage exists, and existed before King died, that's not in those three episodes.)

As for Girls Love Sex, that is more of a loose concept than anything, and consists mainly of unscripted interviews. It may have been his idea, but it can chug along fine without his direct involvement. I would in fact assume it was doing so even when he was alive.

Basically I agree with everything you wrote.
The purpose of my comment was to let people know who Zalman King was, in case they forgot his name.
His death will probably have very little impact on any content being posted at sexart.

I saw the movies of his that I listed, and enjoyed them as softcore eroticism.

I actually find that Zalman King series quite erotic - but I really liked the original Red Shoe Diaries film as well with Brigitte Bako - mmmm - and this series has that same feel.

Abel Semen (3) Actually, after tonight's update I think the main - or at least, another major - problem I have with Kamizake Love concerns the male lead.

He's clearly a character you're supposed to have mixed emotions about - simultaneous attraction and repulsion, that sort of thing. I suspect many *women* viewing the series will indeed have such a response.

I, on the other hand, don't have mixed feelings about him at all. I just plain hate his guts. He's a smug, arrogant, self-obsessed, manipulative, psychologically abusive asshole and I want him to die and the heroes to have a party to celebrate.

But there ARE no heroes in this story, and even if he does die at the end (I have no idea whether he does or doesn't) this is sure to be depicted as tragic or at best having a mixed upshot.

Still... find me another piece on a porno site that could even ignite such a debate in the first place. Take your time, I'll wait.

On that level, Kamikaze Love is an unqualified success.

Abel Semen (3) Come to think of it, that's also what makes it impossible for me to view Kamikaze Love as porn, no matter how many tits there are in it.

You hear comments all the time on sites like this that male porn actors are essentially scenery (in mainstream porn aimed at straight dudes, and for that matter probably in gay porn as well). The reason for this is that, for male viewers, the idea is usually to imagine YOURSELF as the guy (or one of them) in the scene. All else being equal, this is easier to do the more generic the male characters are.

Male characters with strong personalities CAN be at loggerheads with this goal. They don't have to be; I can imagine enjoying porn with a well-defined male character that I *LIKED*. But with this guy as the only male point of identification? No way. I don't understand his motivations and what I see of his actions mostly disgusts me. That he is rewarded for this with a small army of hot women (three that we've met so far if I've succeeded in keeping my characters straight), which I'd be particularly happy about if he were someone I could identify with, instead just makes me angry.

To be honest I prefer porn where the male performer isn't just "scenery" (this is the main reason why I don't really like X-Art). I hope they don't end up caving in.

Abel Semen (3) REPLY TO #6 - cjd2004 :

What are some good examples of such porn that don't fall under my other objections? (I.e., should be hardcore, and male characters should be more sympathetic than I currently find Jack to be - I realize the latter is somewhat subjective, but that shouldn't mean there isn't enough common ground to make an educated guess...) I'd be genuinely interested in checking such material out, for lots of reasons not the least of which is that people seem to think I should do more reviews. (There is one that I am *ahem* researching that I hope to write up soon - probably in about three weeks, but more likely to be sooner than later. But more suggestions would be good.)

Drooler (220) I remember being dazzled by Sherilyn Fenn (Two Moon Junction, Twin Peaks, etc.). I didn't realize that she's the niece of Suzi Quatro.

Yes, I first noticed Sherilyn Fenn either in the The Wraith (with Charlie Sheen) or Two Moon Junction. Like you, I found her extremely attractive.

A very young Milla Jovovich (she was around 11 years old) was also in Two Moon Junction. Actually, a number of very good actors were also in Two Moon Junction, so although erotic, it wasn't the cheap brand of erotic movies.

I would suggest orgasms.xxx, since it recently won a Feminist Porn Award, and is crying out for a review. Now sure how sympathetic the males are, but the content doesn't seem to be story based so it's probably not an issue..,

I've seen bits of their stuff, they often get recommended in the same breath as sites I know I like. Unfortunately I don't find the ladies they use as attractive, on average, as those at a lot of other site. Still, they might be worth checking out.
