If you aren't already familiar with Petra Joy, then I can tell you that she spent two years directing documentaries centered around sexuality. She produced and directed her first porn back in 2004 called "Sexual Sushi," bringing her vision of female-centered sexuality to the silver screen. If you haven't heard of it, then head on over to Cinema Joy where you can not only enjoy Petra's films, but also films from other directors.
Since our last visit the collection increased to include 154 scenes, which includes behind-the-scenes footage for certain ones as well as interviews. You can also choose to watch the full films in the "films" section where they're divided between the ones shot by Petra and the ones from other directors.
You'll also find 23 photo galleries. The photos are high-res and you can save them in Zip files. It appears the numbers have decreased here but I couldn't figure out why. It's possible this is due to a miscount so I won't worry about it too much. On that note, it's unclear how often they're updating as the only date you'll get is the year the movie was released.
You also can't download any of the scenes as the site is streaming-only and you can choose from SD, HD or Full HD playback. You're free to "like" the movies, but users can't leave comments or save their favorites. There also aren't any sorting options. What I did appreciate though was that the scenes come with a detailed write-ups.
I wish there were more bonuses available to members. You do get trailers where you can get a sneaky peek of a movie you want to watch, but it would be nice if users could build a profile or participate in a forum or even check out a blog.
I checked out Petra's signature film "Sexual Sushi." It features real couples having real orgasms and I appreciated the lighting that was used and the music that plays over it. I also watched some scenes from the other directors, like "The Black Widow" by Maria Beatty - for those of you into lesbian noir and BDSM you will appreciate the celebration of dominance and submission.
Fans of Petra Joy will like this site as it contains all her fabulous films for your viewing pleasure, so if you're in the mood for tasteful, erotic and artsy porn that celebrates all kinds of orientations and fetishes, then this is the site for you. I only wish I knew how often they were updating, but at least there is a little more to enjoy this time.
