Review: Sugar High Glitter City (VOD)

I know, I know: I already reviewed Sugar High Glitter City! What am I doing mentioning it again?

Well, it’s worth mentioning twice. Because holy crap, Shar and Jackie. Swoon. I wish they would make some more porn.

sugarBut also, Hot Movies 4 Her (which powers the video-on-demand Sugarbutch queer porn affiliate site) JUST added Sugar High Glitter City to their repertoire. Lucky you! That means you can buy some minutes, check out each of the scenes, and only pay for the minutes you watch—so instead of making the DVD $30 investment (or whatever it is, jeez porn is expensive) you can watch the first few minutes (or the middle few minutes) of each scene and decide whether it’s worth it to see the whole scene. Or fast forward when you’re not into it.

Here’s the HM4H writeup about the porn:

Sugar High Glitter City
Studio: S.I.R. Productions Directors: Jackie Strano & Shar Rednour

It’s the future. Sugar is outlawed. Cane-addicted dykes stop at nothing to get it – even selling their own bodies! The dynamic dyke team of SIR Video slams the dykespoitation genre into fast-forward with this sticky-fingered belly-crawl through Glitter City’s underworld of sugar-pimps and sandy hos. Fabulously diverse cast and multiple dyke sexualities crunch to the center in this fast-paced futuristic farce. Urban-encrusted glam, gutter-glitter lust, and candy-coated sleaze.

And if you click on over to the VOD site you’ll see some of the photos from each of the scenes, too. That first scene—the threesome with two butches and a femme, where Jackie is talking dirty the whole time? Holy crap I love that one. I think I studied it about eight or so years ago when I had a VHS copy of it in order to learn how to talk that way. She’s one of the best dirty talkers in porn I’ve ever seen.

Actually, speaking of dirty talk, S.I.R. Productions also has a “Talk Dirty To Me” film, which I’ve still never seen, but that I hear HM4H will be adding to their collection in the near future. Will most certainly watch that as soon as I can, and report back to y’all how it is.

    I remember ordering this for my gf b/c she really wanted to find some authentic lesbian porn. This film in particular got our attention because it also included black women. But we both felt like the performers simply weren't attractive and the scenes often cheesy. And unfortunantely, that seems to be a common trend in the "authentic" lesbian porn genre. It's great to see butch/femme dynamics played out on the screen, but too often it seems the sexiness gets lost in the realism.

    Just my 2 cents

  2. I've always wanted to see this one. I was introduced to it through some HBO special–possibly a Real Sex episode or a special about queer porn. I had an immediate desire to watch the whole thing, but my finances being what they were and are, the likelyhood of that is probably slim.

    Instead I was introduced to real lesbian porn via pink and white productions and their excellent Crash Pad and Superfreak movies. Ah, Jiz Lee. We will never be together and yet my love for you is endless.

    As far as performers not looking "attractive"; c'mon! I'd much rather see two plain looking folk having a real, passionate experience than some cookie cutter horseshit where the orgasms are faked. Authentic sex is hot, regardless of size or looks.

    The scenes were definitely cheesy sometimes, totally. But in a way I felt like it was making fun of the cheesy lesbian porn style by going way over the top, which you could argue did or didn't work, but I liked it. And maybe the attractiveness of the people is a personal taste issue, but I disagree, I think pretty much everyone in that video is really attractive. Especially because they are having real sex and really being turned on by it. Sure, some scenes are better (i.e. turn me on more) than others, but it's still one of my favorites.
