When thinking of Penny Flame (and we are), her hands aren’t the first things that come to mind. “We already know she isn’t a transsexual,” we say. “Concentrate on other parts.” But now we’ve reconsidered.
Penny Flame’s Expert Guide to Handjobs for Men & Women
Cast: Penny Flame, Harmony, Justice Young, Anthony Rosano
Review by: Gram Ponante
Ms. Flame proves an excellent teacher in “Penny Flame’s Expert Guide to Handjobs for Men & Women,” which delivers the sexy without skimping on the science.
Appearing before a multi-ethnic and multigenerational classroom, Flame whips out the visual aids, both tasteful black-and-white drawings and flesh-and-blood subjects Harmony and Justice Young, to demonstrate that handjobs are more than masturbation plus distance.
Flame emphasizes lube, hand hygiene, and taking it slow (but firm) with guest Harmony, who allows Flame to squeeze her labia together for the hushed onlookers (“Don’t go straight for the clit before it’s warmed up,” Flame tells you sternly). But tragedy strikes when Justice Young appears for the male component, because Flame only gets him hard – she doesn’t allow a release. That, my friends, is not Justice.
And this is the only drawback to the movie. The 30-minute classroom portion is filmed and edited like an infomercial for softcore late-night cable, with all the applause sound effects, approving audience shots, cheesy voiceover, and canned music. The artifice threatens to overwhelm the naturally compelling Flame and make her seem like more of a prop, when in fact her teaching style – when she’s allowed to do it – is helpful and personable.
The infomercial gives way to several annotated hardcore scenes, including one with Flame and Anthony Rosano, that fill out the DVD.
