Eddie Powell cranks out a feature a week for Digital Sin/New Sensations, making him a certifiably overworked hack. While he toils away building up a retirement nest egg, the viewer is subjected to junk like "I Seduced My Brother" (and its inevitable sequel), the porn label's typical running into the ground of its recently successful line of fake-incest sagas.
The theme of incest in cinema, a subject I've been studying for over four decades, is a rich one, with endless psychological possibilities. Once upon a time, mainstream films explored the topic, often with hugely successful results (a la "Chinatown"), but now that it is just a money-maker for XXX practitioners it has lost all its bite. Powell and his mentor on the subject Jacky St. James posit a parallel world where everyone has a step-mother or a step-sister, natural parents are nowhere to be found, and the remaining folk enjoy hopping in the sack with each other willy-nilly.
So these four unrelated episodes lamely go through the motions of crypto-incest. There's no script credit because this is a B-version of the slightly better, only slightly, effusions in this sub-genre executed by Jacky herself (for which dear Eddie only serves as cameraman or if he behaves himself is also permitted to supervise the music track too). Dialog is improvised by the cast, quite awkwardly in fact, as they are in a hurry (like the crew) to get to the sex footage and wrap the baby up - time is money.
The men are from Porno Central Casting, each of whom I've seen in hundreds of videos (two are already in the 1,000-plus club). The women, who from the title are supposedly representing the point-of-view of main protagonist, are a sorry lot, aspiring youngsters who have not heeded the frequent warnings of how the Adult industry is such a meat-grinder for susceptible newcomers. They do not display any special talents or outstanding physical characteristics to promise an actual porn actress career, though Cassidy Klein has already racked up numerous minor roles in an assortment of lousy productions: fetish, bondage, gonzo and kink. Take your pick: "A Long Dick in Cassidy's Ass" from the Mofos low-end label is typical. The other girls are generally cast in filler assignments - no Jenna Haze or Jenna Jameson of the future here.
Situations are lame: Cassidy getting a shoulder massage from bro Logan Pierce leading to deep-throat action; bosomy jail-bait Rahyndee James masturbating with (product plug) New Sensations sex toy, earning sex with voyeur bro Chad White, so she can do the "my what a big dick you have!" routine; Oriental talent Morgan Lee as a temptress who boldly assaults her sleeping bro Mr. Overworked James Deen; and strange-looking tattooed beanpole Kendra Cole feeling up bro Erik Everhard while he sleeps (I sense a pattern here), and of course he can't refuse a free hump.
But they are all step-siblings, so it doesn't count. Yes, that is the pornographer's mantra circa 2014, and sure enough it doesn't count. It doesn't matter since there's no incest involved -there's nothing involved but performers being paid to have sex together for an audience of voyeurs, myself included of course, to my way of thinking equivalent to prostitution whereby the john just likes to watch instead of participating. Only this is safely one-step removed, in the privacy of one's home.
The pretense of "acting" and "directing" has become paper-thin in depressing exercises like this video. The porn pioneering actresses like Annette Haven, Tina Russell and Rene Bond turned me on once upon a time and became objects of idol worship. The young women here merely inspire pity -couldn't they find something more productive to do with their lives than pretend at incest, get tied up, take it in the ass, or merely snuggle with another pretend-lesbian? Is that why people flock to La La Land in the first place?
