Top of the line erotica
Some of the more talented women knocking aroudn in show business apparently decided to see if they could produce some top of the line erotica and the result was Women: Stories of Passion. The stories are uneven, but almost always have the strength that they focus on the psychology of the characters and get their eroticism from the characters' erotic responses rather than from some abstract sex act or fetish, as many other Skinamax series and films do.
Two of my favorite episodes are "The Gigolo" and (can't recall the name exactly, think it had "Paradise" in it somewhere). In "The Gigolo" a top female studio executive likes to script bondage scenarios in which she's a damsel in distress. She has a gigolo who acts them out for her, and who eventually teaches her the pleasure of losing control for real, rather than in her carefully scripted fantasies. Nice story with some lively acting by the female lead. "Paradise" follows a young woman's fascination with what goes on in a bordello, a fascination which eventually leads exactly where you think it will. But instead of having the dark overtones of "Belle du Jour" it has a lively feel for the erotic fantasies that drive the woman, making it a pleasant watch.
It's an ambitious series, watching it with your eyes open will be rewarding.
