March may be cold, but it's hot and heavy here at OnMilwaukee.com as we celebrate our first-ever Sex Week. We're taking a mature look at local video and sex toy shops, area strip clubs, sexy Milwaukee events -- and even some connections between Brew City and Playboy magazine. It's serious, responsible, adult-themed content -- but don't worry, parents, we'll keep it PG-13 in case junior stumbles upon these stories as OnMilwaukee.com turns a pale shade of blue for seven days.
When I received this assignment -- to write a blog about my favorite sexy movie -- I decided it was time to review some new porn and perhaps find a new fave.
After Googling around a bit, I decided to get the advice of an expert, so I called the erotic shop A Woman’s Touch and spoke to "pleasure specialist" Emily Jansen.
I asked Jansen to recommend sexy films, and she readily made a few suggestions. Her first suggestion was the Comstock Film series, which features real couples -- both gay and straight -- discussing their relationship followed by a sex scene.
She also suggested the Chemistry series, which takes the reality TV concept to the adult entertainment world. In this series, adult film stars meet in a house filled with sex toys and spend 36 hours exploring all of their sexual options.
However, I decided to check out her final suggestion, "The Opening of Misty Beethoven." Jansen described it as a "classic remake of ‘My Fair Lady’," which piqued my interest. I also read it was pornography meets "Pygmalion," and I was sold.
The film, released in 1975, is about a sexologist (Jamie Gillis) who attempts to transform a hooker, Misty (Constance Money), into the role of a sex goddess who spreads passion to a variety people. The film has more plot than most pornos, and the comedic writing is actually successful at times.
"The Opening of Misty Beethoven" was the first pornographic film to feature a woman dominating a man with the help of a sex toy.
Overall, I found the writing and acting to be a cut above the average skin flick, but most of all I liked the campy, ‘70s feel to this film.
If you want to check out "The Opening of Misty Beethoven," it’s available for $19.95 at A Woman’s Touch.
