I have to say, this is one of my favorite episodes of Crash Pad in a while… To be fair, I love every episode of Crash Pad I’ve watched. I am completely enamored with this idea of Sex Worker porn. In short, episode 237 is femme on femme, tatted, fully accessorized, playful, throaty, and expressive. The communication is on point, both in terms of expressing how they want it and…

Review: Crash Pad Series Episode 230: Kitty Stryker & Jetta Rae

Kitty Stryker-Jetta Rae Crash Pad Series Ep230
January 10, 2017

As always, I have to gush over Crash Pad. Episode 230 was phenomenal as ever, but not for the obvious reasons. I’ll mention the unexpected first. It’s not so much bad, as I kind of wish there had been more “sex.” But that’s a me problem, not a them problem. And to be clear, it’s not even a problem. The sex felt a little like an afterthought to me. It turns…

Review: Happy New Year from Crash Pad (2017)

January 10, 2017

How effing awesome is this 5 minute clip?  It perfectly captures the sexiness, diversity, queerness, individuality, fun, playfulness, creativity, and care both among the performers and those behind the camera, all set to a classical music piece. That it was set to classical music took me back to my grad school days at the Institute where we watched the “Fuck-a-rama” (also sometimes known as “Pornucopia”).  I kind of feel like there needs…

Crash Pad Series Episode 220: Mistress Kara & Stefani Special

Crash Pad Series Ep 220
August 6, 2016

One of my favorite things that I get to see in Crash Pad is playing with gender and titles, specifically in this episode, using the title “Sir” to address someone who is femme presenting. It throws sand in the face of hetero- and cis-normativity, and I’m all for that.  There’s nothing quite like the zap of the Neon Wand. (Funnily, I attended a class earlier today on ElectroSex.) I seriously…

Crash Pad Series Episode 219: Chocolate Chip and Eros LaFemme

July 18, 2016

First, before I share my thoughts on Episode 219, I have to say that I really appreciate that Crash Pad has encouraged this new wave of Sex Educators Review Porn. You should definitely check out the hashtag #SexEdPornReviews on Twitter as well as their blog posts for past episodes.  Secondly, I’ve totally slacked on my monthly reviewing of Crash Pad Episodes and I apologize. I have, however, participated in several of the…

Review: CrashPad’s Guide to Fisting

May 29, 2016

I’ve been so swamped and had various life/family issues over the past couple of months, I somehow managed to miss one of my monthly Crash Pad reviews. I haven’t been watching much porn lately, unfortunately, but that’s the ebb and flow of life. I had every intention to review the Guide to Fisting and post it in April, but it just didn’t happen. So, here it is finally. The Crash Pad…

Review: Crash Pad Series Episode 194: Kay Kardia & Lux Fury

CrashPadSeries Episode 194 KayKardia-Lux Fury
March 30, 2016

So, I’m browsing Crash Pad wondering what I will review next. I have some favorites saved which either I love, or I’ve been meaning to watch. I haven’t watched much porn at all in the last few weeks, to be honest, but there I was scrolling through the episodes, when something colorful and bright jumps out at me. I’m drawn in right away to episode 194.  No kidding, I have some serious hair envy watching Lux…

Review: Crash Pad Series Episode 100: Jiz Lee and Nina Hartley

January 11, 2016

How do I convey to you the hottest, queer porn scene I’ve seen to date? The fact that both of these performers are Pretty Big Deals and they are super cool, down-to-earth people just makes it that much better (Not to be a name dropper, but I’ve met Nina Hartley several times in person, gone to a class of hers and she’s just lovely. So sweet. I have yet to meet Jiz…

Review: Crash Pad Series Episode 131: April Flores’ solo

December 22, 2015

Episode 131 was the first Crash Pad episode I’d ever seen.  There’s something intensely validating in getting to watch porn that features a performer with a body that looks similar to mine.  Many of the Crash Pad’s episodes hold this element of exhibitionism and voyeurism that I don’t recall seeing in more mainstream porn. In Episode 131, April Flores breaks down that fourth wall right from the get-go when she acknowledges…
