|Boobs! Read the post for more boobs!|
Why am I doing this scene? Simple. I think it's really hot.
Appearance: Pray for Power (2001)
Characters: Heather Leighton & Neil Soloman
Given the nature of soft porn lighting, it's actually genuinely quite difficult to divine the name of the male lead actor here, since Christopher Roblee and Charley Broderick (aka "him out of American Hustle") are in it too. I'm going to assume, however naïvely, that the actor here is Jonathan Slater, playing character Neil Soloman.
Why? Because he's also in Leaving Scars (1997), which also stars Lisa Boyle, is made by the same production company, and is basically the same concept, if not the entire same movie: soft porn dressed as an action thriller. Lisa Boyle is a badass with a gun, some stuff happens with money and people pursuing people, there's some questionable dialogue and she sleeps with someone at at least one point. It happens in The Night That Never Happened (1997), it happens in Leaving Scars, and it happens here.
Hey, if it works...
|Lots of hair, a sultry look and a bra.|
This scene is fairly sequential - even episodic. One could even make a list:
Heather takes her top off;
Heather takes her bra off;
Heather takes Neil's trousers off;
Neil takes Heather's trousers off;
The scene doesn't show either of them taking off their underwear, although she's wearing sexy knickers and he's wearing boxers from GAP (overtly - maybe there's a deal going on?) and jumps straight to the sex at around the 00:38 mark. It gets in some kisses and some disrobing, but I think it knows its main focus, which is pleasing enough in itself.
At this point the drums start.
|Lisa Boyle's actually very pretty when you see her up close.|
I should mention the music, really. There's a recurring plinky piano motif which is repeated on a loop throughout the entire scene - nothing special, just a few notes, but just as you start to get used to it (it's quite soporific; I could sleep to this...), someone on an electric guitar plays a few chords. Right at the instant the actual simulated sex happens, the drums kick in - it's very nicely timed, even if (after a few powerful beats) there's nothing but an extra rhythm along with the motif!
I'm assuming this is meant to be, to some extent, relatively passionate sex, even romantic. There's a
|Help! They've put Miley Cyrus in soft porn!|
Oh, hai more drums and somebody pratting about with a slide guitar.
Just after a minute in and the scene changes (in fact, it actually gets a little brighter). In a wider shot of the room they're in - don't get excited, it's just a room - they switch... gradually, although there's some ficker-lickin'
|Riding, with boobs.|
That's about it. Heather throws her head back (lolz! orgasm?!) and we fade to black over another off guitar ululation.
I really like this - it's short, but there's a lot of skin, and a healthy amount of boobs, and Lisa Boyle is
|Head back. Boobs.|
However, there is one thing which is much, much better than everything else in this scene put together: it's the music... or, more specifically, the music when sped up. Original speed, it fits the scene, okay, fine. Speed everything up 100% and it sounds almost exactly like it would fit the African chants from the end of The Lion King. Another 100% and it sounds like it would fit better in a video game, maybe something water-themed from a Zelda title. Another 100% and we get some fast, repeated beats, over which you could lay down some samples and lyrics and get a pretty decent electropop song. Another 100% and... well... then it gets messy. Still, that's four speedups and it works in a different way each time, so that's something.
Soft porn! Kisses, skin, boobs, sex and UNIVERSALLY APPLICABLE MUSIC! Is there anything it can't do?
