Hot and even hotter sex which benefits from the familiarity and genuine affection between the participants should interest the porn fans who want more from their stars.
Under the guise of docudrama, director Michael Zen has delivered a compelling bit of viewing pleasure. Composed of set up interviews with five actual porn couples, and shot in direct cinema style, Expose; Behind Porn Doors takes the viewer into the personal lives and relationships of some of the best known personalities in gay porn today.
What, for most people, is the most private and intimate aspect of life, the porn star puts on the screen for the enjoyment of millions. Conversely, what is public in most people's lives is shoved behind the scenes for a porn star. It is this reality, which goes unnoticed in the lives of porn stars, that is the subject of Expose.
The tape opens with the individual couples talking to each other and to the camera. The performers discuss themselves, their relationships, their initial contacts with one another, their sex lives and other various and sundry anecdotes in a thoroughly amusing manner. The variety and scope of the personal relationships becomes quickly evident, as does the ease and openness with which some of the couples relate. Then they do what they are best known for: They have sex.
Steve Cannon and significant other Brian Anger adjourn to the garage to co-mingle. Nasty boy Cannon has already told us how he fantasizes about and enjoys getting fisted and how he first wanted to get fucked after watching his dog get it -- hence his love of "doggie style." One cannot help but be aroused while watching him drool uncontrollably as Anger plays with and then literally pounds his ass. The lust between this couple leaps off the screen quite unlike what the viewer is used to seeing.
John Ross and Jack Simmons are the other truly noteworthy couple. They talk candidly about their purported "on-again, off-again" relationship, claiming to actually never have been off. Their volatile natures have been misunderstood, unfortunately in the presence of gossip mongers and cameras. The telling of their arrest after a domestic squabble is both funny and endearing. Their sex is combustible.
