Portrait of an Affair

Starting last week, when we reviewed My Mother’s Best Friend 4, and continuing today with Anthony Spinelli’s award-winning classic, Portrait of an Affair, you might have started noticing the term “love story” cropping up in this blog lately. Have we gone mad, or have we gone soft is probably the question at the tip of everyone’s tongue right about now, and that’s okay. Rest assured, we certainly have not done the latter, though we must admit we succumbed to the former a long, long time ago.

The key thing to remember at a time like this, however, is whether or not YOU have gone soft. Our best guess is that once you see the muff dive that Nina Hartley performs on Ona Zee in Portrait of an Affair the answer will be a resounding “no” and all will be forgiven for our perceived mildness of late. In fact, it may be arguably the best female-female cunnilingus scene ever filmed. The catch is you have to watch it to find out. Gee, didn’t see that one coming did you? Thankfully, you’ll be seeing yourself doing just that once you hit “play.”

Vista Valley PTA

Remember that song Harper Valley PTA? You know … the 1968 country chart-topper sung by Jeannie C. Riley? You know … the song that inspired the 1978 motion picture and 1981 television series starring Barbara Eden? You know … the woman who played Jeannie in the I Dream of Jeannie sitcom?

Oh, you don’t. Well, that means you’re young and all of us old people are shaking our fists at you right now … well, if we still had elbow joints, that is. Despite our physical infirmities, we can assure you that the song, the television series and Barbara Eden are all classics as is this film, Vista Valley PTA, a rather loose reconstruction of the Harper Valley premise.

Directed by Anthony Spinelli and released by Cal Vista, the film centers around the blonde, lovely Jessie St. James, an educator who arrives in Vista Valley to help clean up the image of the local high school. Two of its female teachers have suffered forcible sex at the hands of students in recent months and one of the male teachers has been beaten to within an inch of his life. Why a beautiful woman such as she is sent to the frontlines to shape up a bunch of derelicts is beyond us, but it does prove to dredge up a lot of conflict, always a good thing for a porn flick because it leads to torrid sex more times than not. But she’s not the only one responsible for the great fucking.

Richard Pacheco and Dorothy Lemay are a truant couple messing around in a convertible before class. Dorothy is coerced into playing with herself by her delinquent boyfriend. Both she and he slide their fingers through her furry pussy, loosening her up enough for her to go down on the impatient Richard. The bell rings as she lowers her mouth over the head of his cock, but she quickly sucks and jerks him to orgasm.

The late, great Jamie Gillis plays a sexually repressed religious zealot who hires a hooker (Desiree West) for his enjoyment. He prefers she finger fuck herself while he sits and masturbates into a Kleenex. She’s a bit creeped out as you too will be by his performance, especially when he grabs her hair and yells at her to repent for her wickedness. Even creepier is when he goes home and bursts in on his topless daughter (Sharon Kane), yet lingers in the room while she hurries to get dressed, even feeling her up in the process. Gillis’ versatility made him one of the best in the biz.

The incredible Kay Parker and her husband, Aaron Stuart are a married couple who hate each other, though he still wants on-demand sex when he gets home from work. He bullies Kay out of her one-piece jumpsuit, releasing her stupendously large tits and full bush, then fucking her silly before spurting cum up her belly. In true selfish form, he rolls over and falls asleep leaving her to finger her gorgeous slit to orgasm.

As stellar as are those first few scenes, the real fireworks begin after St. James calls a PTA meeting to discuss the current state of the school. While she preaches the necessity for strong parenting and ethics, what transpires afterward is anything but. Jamie Gillis fills his daughter’s mouth with cum; John Leslie fucks Juliet Anderson and then her daughter, Dorothy, as mom masturbates outside the room. Then, mom and daughter hook up with mom burying her face in Dorothy’s twat; Pacheco hooks up with St. James after he reads his overtly sexual report to her; and in the last scene Leslie, Ken Scudder, Lee LeMay and John Seeman gangbang St. James under threat of running her and her hoity-toity moral code out of town on a rail.

An astonishing adult film ‘Vista Valley P.T.A.’ unflinchingly brings the sin in the suburbs to the screen with amazing realism as the students of Vista Valley High School and their parents mix it up sexually among themselves and each other! It’s a nest of sex perversion, greed and out-and-out lust. From classroom to boardrooms to bedrooms, ‘Vista Valley P.T.A.’ is simply amazing.
