Review: Belladonna’s Strapped Dykes (DVD)

I’ve had a copy of the 2-DVD set Belladonna’s Strapped Dykes for months, and still haven’t managed to finish it. That’s because it is damn hot. I keep getting distracted! Two whole discs of fucking? How can I last that long?

Clearly I need a new strategy. I’d like to get an external monitor for my laptop (someday) so I can watch porn while I work, but then again that might be too distracting.

This set features (pretty famous) porn star Belladonna, who has quite the empire of her own, though I don’t really follow the mainstream porn world so I know very little about her. Turns out she’s quite good at queer sex, and she brings along well-known queer porn favorites Jiz Lee & Syd Blakovich to help out in this film.

Also stars April Flores (who we are watching in Wednesday night’s porn party!), Bobbi Starr, and Sinn Sage. Aside from April, I’m not familiar with any of those porn actresses but they are quite fun to watch.

It’s clear everybody here is having a really good time. The fucking is dirty and real, with great noises from all involved—clearly they are enjoying it all. Especially worth checking out are Jiz Lee’s opening scene with Belladonna, which includes some very impressive throat fucking and finger (um, fist) sucking, and Syd Blakovich’s scene with Bobbi Starr which opens the second disc. In fact, the whole second disc features scenes with Syd, so if you’re a fan of her work—and hey why wouldn’t you be? She’s hot and talented and inspiring to watch as a porn performer—I especially recommend this for you.

Glad it’s in my library.

Belladonna’s Strapped Dykes DVD was sent to me from Babeland for review. Pick up other sex toys from Babeland, still my favorite feminist, queer, friendly, educational neighborhood sex shop.

    When I heard about this DVD I jumped right up to buy it cuz I have yet to see any real strap on pornos that are two femmes in a mainstream porn. Totally enjoyed it. In fact the scene between Jiz Lee and Belladonna me rewinding.

    Jay and I FINALLY broke down and ordered our copy of the original “Crash Pad” series. I’m super excited. It’s crazy, we both love porn. We used to watch it all the time together before we were a couple. Hell, he even did the camera work for my PSW Suicide Girls set. However, since we have been together our porn has mainly consisted of whatever goes on in our own dirty minds and every once in a while, some internet goodies. What gives? The other night I just decided to order “Crash Pad”. I’ve seen a few clips. I know it’s hot. And I have a goal of building up a good, queer porn collection. That is all.

      Shawna: Awesome! I’d be curious what you think about it. Also check out Tight Places: A Drop Of Color and Champion, I think those are my favorite queer porn DVDs.

    Speaking of being curious about my thoughts,I have decided to focus on your work a bit this week. No, I am not a stalker (I felt this a necessary statement). I’m an English student and your pieces often prompt me to write. That is the reason I chose my major. I tend to have a lot going on in my mind, all at once-eh. If I don’t have something in my life prompting me to write, I will end up the crazy, bag-lady who mutters something about cheese and panties (if this rabbit trail doesn’t show you how close I am to being “her” , I don’t know what will). Recently, I took a break from writing. I got fired, I had to move to a less than desirable home (the water only runs in the bathtub…I have to do dishes in my bathtub), my son started showing signs of stress, and blah blah blah-life happens to us all bullshit. You would think those things would be enough for me to truly need to write. However, I shut down. I started a nasty road of self-medication and seriously boring, pity parties. Things are clearing up now. I am making changes slowly and it’s working. I’m kind of using your blog to push me into writing more. I need to wake up and get back to real life. In a way, you’re helping. It’s going to be a goal of mine to focus on either one blog or one book for a week at a time and just write. Guess what? You’re first! Lucky. If you see random comments popping up from me in your older post, that’s why. I suppose you didn’t really need the details. I like details. (and sarcasm)
