Lilith Likes to Watch - Sex Wish

"I did it because I love you." Consider your favourite porn star. Hell, let's be generous and add a second favourite porn star, along with a well known third porn actor. Now, consider a fetish you like. Finally, add something that would be an instant hard-no turn off. Something that would make your genitals turtle back into your body cavity. Congratulations, you just experienced Sex Wish . Harry Reems plays Ken, a man who's very much in love with his wife Faye, played by C. J. Laing. One day while Ken is at work, Faye is raped and murdered by the Night Walker, played by Zebedy Colt. Ken then pr

Lilith Likes to Watch - Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

Title:  Beyond the Valley of the Dolls Year: 1970 Starring:  Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers, Marcia McBroom Director:  Russ Meyer, Written by Roger Ebert Synopsis:   Three girls come to Hollywood to make it big, but find only sex, drugs and sleaze. - Via IMDB Lilith's Notes:  It was written by seminal movie critic Roger Ebert. "Come into my den, said the spider, etcetera..." This Tuesday, influential film critic Roger Ebert would have be 77 years old. If I might be so bold, every single one of us internet reviewers, critics, bloggers and hot-takers owe Ebert a debt of thanks. He paved the way for all of us, no matter if we write take downs, rants or think pieces. He, and his compatriots like Gene Siskel and Leonard Maltin proved that critique is a valid form of writing and discussion. A lot of critique is met with "Well, I'd like to see you make a book/movie/art/clothes.", and yet still many people counter with "You don't have to make a th

Lilith Likes to Watch - Melody in Love

Title:  Melody in Love Year:  1978 Starring:  Britta Glatzeder, Sascha Hehn, Claudine Bird. Director:  Hubert Frank Synopsis:   Melody arrives on Mauritius to visit her glamorous female cousin. Her sexual awakening begins there as she becomes fascinated with the island, the beautiful sexually liberated cousin, the cousin's lover and other characters. - Via IMDB Lilith's Notes:  I saw it once with a friend when I was a kid. It burrowed itself into my memory like a forgotten, faded dream. "Melody in love, you've found your way." I've made it a well-known fact that, when I was younger, way too young for such movies, I used to sneak and watch them. Melody in Love  was one such movie. A friend of mine was sleeping over and it was on tv. We sneakily watched it. All I remembered was the theme song and ...a blood ritual? This movie became an elusive treasure. Something obscure and a little hard to find. I managed to acquire a VHS copy of it, because I ha

Lilith Likes to Watch - The Story of Joanna

Title:  The Story of Joanna Year:  1975 Starring:  Jamie Gillis, Terri Hall, Zebedy Colt Director:  Gerard Damiano Synopsis:   A millionaire begins a sadomasochistic relationship with a naive young woman. - Via IMDB Lilith's Notes:  The debut of Terri Hall, directed by the director of classic pornos, Deep Throat  and Devil in Mrs. Jones "Every hole I have has been used. What's your specialty, ground glass in my douche?" Marketing can be a powerful thing. While browsing around for what next to review, I came upon the striking poster for The Story of Joanna . I did a little bit of investigating and learned Zebedy Colt was in this film so instantly It was slotted in as the next watch. The Story of Joanna  is the typical tale of a rich, powerful man who wants to own his own naive fuckpuppet and punching bag. It has the same problems 50 Shades, The Opening of Misty Beethoven ,  and  The Image have. They're not tales of BDSM, they're stories of sexu
