Prior to receiving this DVD, I had never heard of Lust Cinema, an online adult movie theater. I’m incredibly pleased to know of it now! Cabaret Desire is just one of Erika Lust’s three erotic movies. It is beautifully, artistically filmed, opening with shots of women being laced into corsets and putting on make-up, and snippets of a bar full of people watching a man in a leotard (Luizo Vega) performing a lovely, powerful pole dance. The premise of this 75 minute film is that the bar is staffed with poets or storytellers who will read erotica, presenting patrons with imagery to tease and tantalize, thus setting the stage for a series of pornographic vignettes.
#1: The Two Alexes (17 minutes)
As a poet begins to read to one of the patrons, the scene cuts to a different bar where a cute, curvy blonde woman (Sofia Prada) bartends and gets the phone numbers of two of her smokin’ hot customers, a male Alex (Tony Fontana) and a female Alex (Saskia Condal). She later takes them on the same dates, sings them the same songs, and eroticizes the dichotomy – the fact that they each offer different experiences under the same name.
Following the pattern of showing bits and pieces with each Alex, the sex scene swaps back and forth between the male and female experience. For me, this mimics the way that I usually watch porn. I tend to patch together a few different films as I fantasize, hopping from one video to another. This movie has that built in. I love it. It makes for a very dynamic viewing experience. You get a taste of a little oral, manual, strap-on, penis-in-vagina, in various positions. It’s all beautiful and passionate. Wonderfully, it doesn’t end with a facial, but with cuddling instead.
