Scripted and directed scenes never work. It's too obvious and awkward, and these ladies are not experienced actresses anyway. Since we know in advance that the scene will eventually and always lead to sex, these scripted and made up scenarios are silly and unnecessary. You simply cannot script and direct an erotic act and make it hot. Only the two women can do that.
On the other hand, a broad story or story arc can give some substance to the relationship between the women. A deep and romantic relationship can be very erotic and hot, but making some women appear as unwilling playthings to other women is not.
I agree...99% of porn performers can't pull off acting anyway...you can't have a 5 minute set-up and expect it to work...the entire movie has to be built around the sex...I say leave the acting to the professionals who can pull it off.
"Scripted and directed scenes never work. It's too obvious and awkward, and these ladies are not experienced actresses anyway."
That's ridiculous, and a smear on those who (albeit rarely) have made the effort and succeeded.
If the court please, I refer the jury to a goodly number of the earlier GFF Lesbian Seduction scenes. Go all the way back and review Lola, Karin and Holly on LS 1, for starters - case closed.
" I've viewed enough story based porn to know that most of it doesn't work. In fact much of it is embarrassingly bad. Anyway, what do you think?"Agree, but it is more likely due to the lack of talent of people behind the cameras rather than lack of acting skills of the performers. I think we still are focusing too much on our preferences, whether it is a specific fetish/scenario, subject matter, realism; and forgetting to demand quality. It is very comfortable to the producers.
I've seen Adriana Chechik do the naive girl twice for Webyoung's "Naked Yoga" and "Lady Lessons: The Player #1." Lily Carter's also been kinda innocent and virginal, too.
I've been for tropical vacation or Arab harem stuff, generally a situation where the girls are just soaking up so much relaxation that they want to have some wild lesbian sex with no concern for others seeing them. Doesn't matter if they're already lovers, or longtime friends deciding to go to the next level, or total DTF strangers, but I do say that I'd like some sisters.
