This Zane series is daring by bringing Black people into this softcore genre. Is the series trying to do what "The Cosby Show" did for sitcoms in the 1980s? Is it possible for softcore to have a multi-ethnic and large audience?
My point in bringing up blue-movie places is that viewers, for the most part, want to see one type of couple, and only that type, when they are renting. This Zane series is so diverse that you never know what the composition of the next couple to get busy will be. Each episode that I've seen has shown some Black nudity and some white nudity in an unpredictable order. So you have to love the smorgasbord: you have to be cool with all body colors and freaky combos when watching this show. This show pushes the envelopes in many ways. If you only like seeing one type of couple, then this is not for you. You have to like everything on the platter in order to get into this series.
This series is for the open-minded and the sex-positive. I enjoy how it is exploring unconventional territory. I hope the squeamish or narrow-minded will consider the voyage that this series wants you to take.
Meanwhile, her friends are going through trials of love of their own. Maricruz (played by Joanna Quintero) plays a divorcee who is still in love with her ex-husband but wants to branch out and find her own sexuality. This road leads her to fall in love with a handsome beau named Charles (played by Jeff Pickel) but he has his own dark secret which leads to a collision course with Maricruz' ex-husband.
Lyric (played by Maya Gilbert) is married and both she and her husband (played by Damian T. Raven) are succesful doctors but the action at home is anything but hot. This leads Lyric to contemplate an affair with a co-worker but the results could cost her her marriage.
Laila Odom plays Ana. A budding stand up comedian who's constant affairs on her boyfriend Tarriq (played by Amin Joseph) may end up sabatoging her relationship.
Eboni (played by Christina DeRosa) runs a gym but may lose it due to a lack of money. She makes a deal to get a loan but gets in over her head. Meanwhile she meets a man that she fall in love with but he's made a vow of celebacy. This creates a problem for Eboni as she isn't sure she can wait for marriage for sex.
Overall, this trip down erotica is smartly written and tastefully done. Plus, for me personally, seeing African-American women (in this case, Patrice, Maya & Lyric) in this way is rather refreshing rather than just pure base sex.Read more ›
