Interracial Sex Havoc #10: 1991 – 1995

The Interracial Sex Havoc project is a reviews selection of films that contain at least one interracial sex scene. I am focusing on regular films (both independent and major studios’ productions), but select adult films are also included (there are tens of thousands of interracial sex scenes out there so it is impossible for one person to watch all of them – although I suspect that I’ve seen more than any sane person on earth). The present chapter is about movies released from 1991 to 1995. Many goodies are presented, including an Oliver Stone film and an Al Pacino flick. So, enjoy what is the present column’s longest chapter yet!

Introduction on Categorizing

Each month when I’m trying to make a choice of what interracial adult films I will include in my research, I find it peculiar that it is so easy to sort out what porn you want to watch with lists that divide the scenes in looks, ethnicities, sex acts, and whatnot. One would say that this is almost offensive. Then, I thought of what that is: Categorizing. And I thought of how useful this is with regular films. Because, simply put, when I browse the internet looking for a film, I like categorization. When I want to see horror, I want the rest of the stuff to be put aside. Heck, categorization goes back to Aristotle! I came to the conclusion that categorization is abusive only on dating sites and social media. I find it really cruel that corporations thought that we need to divide people by whatever means. Because, let’s face it, when you like or dislike someone, all those “options” are irrelevant.

The Reviews

Jungle Fever (1991)

A black man [Wesley Snipes, around the same time he was in King of New York (1990)] is happily married to a mixed race woman [Lonette McKee from Men of Honor (2000)] but he will soon find himself to a relationship with his white secretary [Annabella Sciorra from Cop Land (1997)].

What starts out as a film about sexual relationships (interracial ones at that), it then becomes much more; to be precise, a social commentary unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Writer/director Spike Lee delivered the most important ‘90s film on the subject, and it deservedly won several awards the world over. It is hands down the best film in the present list.

The cast is impressive too and it also includes Samuel Jackson [shortly after he did Def by Temptation (1990)], Halle Berry [almost a decade before X-Men (2000)], Tim Robbins [The Shawshank Redemption (1994)], and Anthony Quinn.

In Loving Color 1 (1992)

This is the porn parody of the same-titled Keenen Ivory Wayans TV show (1990 – 1994) which I have not seen. It consists of five sketches that don’t run for more than 20 minutes each (all divided by the same ‘spot’ that is repeated again and again), but still they feel lengthy.


The first sex scene is between the TV show’s host (Sean Michaels, who also directed) and the guest (Keisha). The second scene takes place in a film set and ‘90s humor is incorporated with wordplay; “forehead” was mistaken for “for head”. The third scene is quite creepy as it involves Julian St. Jox dressed (and then undressed) as a clown. The best scene by far is the last one, and that is because Bianca Trump is involved, and she’s hot as usual.

Three “sequels” followed between 1992 and 1993, but as of this writing, I was unable to track them down.

Zebrahead (1992)

Zack [Michael Rapaport from Men of Honor (2000)] is a white guy living in Detroit and he starts dating Nikki, a gorgeous black girl [N’Bushe Wright from Blade (1998)] from the high school they both attend. There is no interracial sex scene to speak of here, but you do get to see the lead couple in bed and so it is implied.

This would make a good double-bill with Jungle Fever (1991), although it is focusing more on the importance of music and geography and how these two aspects shape culture and racial conflicts. The film also becomes very romantic when the lead couple’s first kiss takes place in a record store; romance both for barrier-breaking love and music as well.

This was written and directed by Anthony Drazan who then went on to helm Imaginary Crimes (1994). It was executive produced by Janet Yang [The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996)] and Oliver Stone [shortly before he directed Natural Born Killers (1994)].

Peter’s Friends (1992)
 
The British film industry is known for delivering one-location talk-fests that are all depressing and bad. The one exception in this genre is little movie (it cost $5,000,000 to make) by director Kenneth Branagh. I know it is criminal that his only film that I had seen prior to this was Frankenstein (1994). If only for the fabulous one-shot with which the first scene is set.

Peter’s Friends (1992) is obviously about Peter [Stephen Fry from Alice in Wonderland (2010)] and his few friends – they are all actors – that he invited to spend a reunion weekend with because they hadn’t seen each other for ten years (the titles offer a very good montage of news footage from 1982, the time the group had their last stage performance together).

What is of concern to this column though is the presence of Sarah [Alphonsia Emmanuel from Still Crazy (1998)] who is a gorgeous black woman currently dating a white man [Tony Slattery from The Crying Game (1992)]. There may be no interracial sex scene to speak of, but everybody in the group seems to be talking about her sexuality all the time (the many lovers she had off-screen are a constant reference point) so much that it is presented as an integral part of her existence. The film is indeed a masterpiece and all of that is portrayed very elegantly.

Chocolate and Vanilla Twist (1992)

When you have an awesome title like that, what can go wrong? Apparently everything, as this is as bad as they get. The dialogue is inaudible seemingly because it was recorded with the camcorder’s mike. Also, whoever was using said camcorder was an obvious amateur, what with the random zooms and pans or the disastrous auto adjustments of the brightness. I only wish it wasn’t the work of director Stilskin, because frankly he is quite prolific.

You would also think that only in the ‘70s pornographers would use eerie music, but no, it is done here too, it is creepy, and it is definitely off-putting. Unfortunately, there is nothing erotic about this video; even the stars look bored. Once I noticed that the performers often look at the camera as if to say “What am I doing here?” or “Do you even know how to use this thing?” I became very tempted to use the ‘Fast Forward’ button, but I did not, because I believe that all films deserve equal chance; I know, how naïve on my part. I know that those videos were not meant as review material, but still…

This is an all-girl affair, and girls of all sorts of races have their ways with each other, so there is plenty of interracial sex for your fix.

Full Eclipse (1993)

Jim Sheldon [Tony Denison from Wild Things 2 (2004)] and Max Dire [Mario Van Peebles from Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song (1971)] are partners in the police force. After a shootout with baddies, the former ends up in hospital really bad, but he mysteriously wakes up from the dead and is stronger than ever before; almost like a werewolf. He soon will not be able to handle his new self and commits suicide with a silver bullet to his head. Adam Garou [Bruce Payne from Necronomicon (1993)] is a cop counsellor who will offer advice to Max regarding his life (he also recently separated with his wife), but also wants him to join a pact of vigilantes with special powers. In that journey he will also be sexually seduced by Casey Spencer [Patsy Kensit, being insanely hot], and the two of them provide with the sole interracial sex scene of interest (and a very passionate one at that).

This is a ‘90s TV movie, but it was produced by HBO, and although I don’t know what the budget was, it very often looks spectacular; so much that it reminded me of William Lustig’s films, and this is always a good thing. This should come as no surprise as it was written Michael Reaves [who penned all of your childhood’s favourite animated TV series] and Richard Christian Matheson [son of the Richard Matheson], and it was directed by Anthony Hickox [not too long after he did Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992)].

M Series 4 (1993)

The M Series was a long line of videos (I believe that 30 were released in a very short period of time) but this is the only one that I managed to track down as of this writing. It consists of three unrelated vignettes.

The first scene finds Sean Michaels delivering the unmatchable “Show me your pussy, I’ll show you my dick” line, and it is also featuring Lynn LeMay giving passionate head in what has to be the hottest moment in this list. It is for scenes like this that I decided to take this journey in the first place.

The second scene is featuring Angella Faith (who has the finest pair of small tits) but is unintentionally hilarious as nobody bothered to exclude the still photographer’s camera clicks in the post or the directions that the person behind the camera was giving.

The final scene involves Jake Steed and one mysterious La Tusche who is nevertheless very hot.
 
The Ballad of Little Jo (1993)

Set in mid-19th century USA this western has the titular character [an incredible performance by Suzi Amis from The Usual Suspects (1995)] forced away from her aristocratic environment due to a series of events and on she goes to live disguised as a man.

Jo (now a rancher) is very sensitive about subjects such as rape (which seems to be prevalent) and she even saves a Chinese immigrant [David Chung from Repo Man (1984)] from the hands of a redneck lynch mob. She then hires him as a cook, and the two of them develop a romantic and sexual relationship.

This is clearly one of the finest films I watched for my research, and to think that it is “Inspired by a real life” (as the titles state) makes it even more relevant. That is if you like thinking-man’s westerns such as Brokeback Mountain (2005). It was written and directed by Maggie Greenwald [Songcatcher (2000)].

Wide Sargasso Sea (1993)

This was adapted by the same-titled 1966 novel by Jean Rhys, and it was directed by John Duigan [Head in the Clouds (2004)]. It is set in 1840s Jamaica and it concerns Antoinette Cosway [Karina Lombard, who has a gorgeous body which she keeps naked for much of the film’s running time] who gets married to Edward Rochester [Nathaniel Parker from Stardust (2007)] who will later cheat on her with Amelie [Rowena King from The Bucket List (2007)] in what is the sole scene of interest to the present column. This NC-17 flick is actually very erotic, but its focus is the mental collapse of the leading lady so it is more appropriate for the art-house crowd.

Carlito’s Way (1993)

There’s nothing to be said about this film that hasn’t already been said, but in case you live under a rock (and for the purpose of starting this review), this is a ‘one last job’ film (a common scenario within the ‘crime’ genre), but plays mostly like a gangster affair; and it is one of the best ones at that.

Kleinfield [Sean Penn, whose Colors (1988) was previously reviewed by this column] is a gangsters’ lawyer and he just released the titular Puerto Rican gangster [Al Pacino, a couple of years before Heat (1995)] from prison. Carlito now wants to quit the ‘business’ and retire abroad, but in order to do that he
has to first put together a little money. He’s trying to acquire the cash without getting his feet very deep back in the underworld, but this is not as easy as he thought.

Carlito’s journey is a pleasure to watch, but his lawyer has a very interesting story too and it is more than pivotal to David Koepp’s screenplay (which was based on two novels by Edwin Torres). What is of interest to this column is that said lawyer fucks Steffie [Ingrid Rogers from Angel of Death (2009)] in a toilet. And Carlito beds Gail [Penelope Ann Miller, three years after Kindergarten Cop (1990)] who is his source of motivation for much of the film (mainly in the second and third acts).

This is set in New York and it was directed by Brian De Palma [one of the first choices before him was Abel Ferrara, but for whatever reason that didn’t happen], and bears a feeling of contempt for organized crime (mainly through Carlito’s character) which is something that doesn’t happen a lot in the films of Martin Scorsese.

Many awards later, and a $60 million gross on a $30 million budget, this is one of the masterworks of ‘90s American cinema.

The Adventures of Buck Naked (1994)

This spy adventure (by director Stuart Canterbury) is set in an imaginary Eastern European country by the name of Clitorania. Most of it is explained in the small breaks between the fine sex scenes.

The first scene (between Sean Michaels and Rebecca Wild) is one of the greatest moments in the present list. The second scene is a girl/girl one (featuring Veronica Sage and Lana Sands). In the third scene Peter North does Angel Bust. The fourth scene is featuring Lilli Xene who has an amazing body and is a joy to watch. The fifth scene is quite hot too as both performers (Sean Michaels and Valeria) seem to express genuine lust.

The Players Club (1994)

This film’s release date is erroneously listed on IMDb as 1998, although it is 1994. Both the Adult Film Database and the Internet Adult Film Database list the title as Players Club although the DVD cover says it is The Players Club (1994). A director is not listed in any of those online sources, nor is it anywhere on the actual film.

This is a good example of being cheap as the whole thing was shot literally on two couches. The film industry is often referring to the “10 Little Indians in a supermarket” concept as a joke, but porn found ways to prove cheaper several times over.

A white receptionist [Don Fernando] is offering a couch to a gorgeous black girl [Sinnamon Love] and once she falls asleep she starts masturbating; needless to say the two of them soon have a sex scene together. The second scene involves Spantaneeus Xtasty who has incredibly big tits and that’s all you need to know. The third and fourth scenes are of the girl/girl variety. The fifth scene is a quite standard boy/girl affair.

Freak dat Booty (1994)

This film by director Jim Enright is about blackmail and incriminating videotapes. After all, it wasn’t too long ago that Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989) proved to be a huge hit.

In the first scene we see a potential tenant (Domonique Simone) seducing a property manager (Jonathan Morgan). The second scene involves Kitty Yung who has a stunning body. The third sex scene is between Janet Jacme and Alex Sanders. The fourth scene involves Micki Lynn who is as hot as they get. And the fifth scene is set by a fireplace and has Marc Wallice doing Domonique Simone. Save for one scene, the entire film consists of interracial sex.

Hollywood on Ice (1995)

This adult film by director Tom Stone has Mr. Marcus playing himself basically, wandering around Hollywood and explaining the rich lifestyle of the porn business while telling us stories of sexual nature and showing us the relevant scenes. The first scene has him doing Lana Sands at his office. Soon (in the second scene) the duo is joined by Ice and the three of them have some fun together that includes some very creative positioning.

The third scene has Jake Steed doing Tabitha who has a killer body. The fourth scene is featuring Lennox who looks like an Aerosmith groupie, which in my book is a good thing. The fifth scene has Mr. Marcus picking Nici Sterling off the streets, as if you can find girls that hot in the streets. And in the sixth scene Peter North does Ice (her tits are beautiful).

How to Make an American Quilt (1995)

This film is about Finn [Winona Ryder from Beetlejuice (1988)] who is in a relationship – and about to get married – with Sam [Dermot Mulroney from Zodiac (2007)] but also gets attracted by another young man [Jonathon Schaech from Quarantine (2008)]. She gets confused and questions on marriage and monogamy bother her. So what she does is she’s sits down and is listening to her older friends’ stories about their marriages. These long conversations lead to flashbacks that are often accompanied by the protagonist’s voice over. One of those past connections concern soul-mates Back [Jared Leto from Requiem for a Dream (2000)] and Anna [her young self played by Rae’Ven Larrymore Kelly from Ghosts of Mississippi (1996)]; and the two of them have the sole sex scene of interest.

Aside of all the above, this is a very good women’s film and it is worthy of deep analysis and thinking, especially when it talks about commitment. It was directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse [Proof (1991)].

The Adventures of Tootsie Pole Volume 1 (1995)

Despite what the title is suggesting there is no story here and the whole thing has the feeling of a compilation, although it is not one. Tootsie Pole’s [Sean Michaels] adventures are of the kind you can imagine and he bangs Brigitte Aime, Brittany O'Connell (he caught her masturbating to a dirty magazine), Sally Layd (she caught him masturbating to a dirty magazine), Kimberly Dawn (using a weird “Nurse Lay” pseudonym), Jasper, and Tiffany Million; in that order.
 
But, in the last scene and while Tootsie is doing Marilyn Martyn, the person behind the camera is suggesting that they should DP her. Well, what do you know, that person is Max Hardcore! The scene then goes on with the three of them, and while it started in broad daylight it ends in the night! Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is sex from dawn till dusk.

The Adventures of Tootsie Pole Volume 2 (1995)

Refer to the above review and you get more of the same here; Sean Michaels is doing quite a few white women. The scenes in both features come with title cards in the beginning that tell us who each performer is.

Money Train (1995)

This being an action/comedy directed by Joseph Ruben [who replaced Tony Scott] has a lot of things going on in it story-wise, but what is of interest in Interracial Sex Havoc is the love triangle that is formed by a white guy [Woody Harrelson, fresh from Natural Born Killers (1994)], a black guy [Wesley Snipes], and a Latina lady [Jennifer Lopez, who much to my surprise can indeed act]. It is actually not much of a triangle as the thing goes like this: the two guys are foster brothers and they are both interested in Jennifer Lopez, but Wesley Snipes wins her pretty early in the script. Needless to say the brief sex scene the two of them is quite awesome, because both performers are very hot.

In other news, one of the villains in the film is Torch [Chris Cooper from This Boy’s Life (1993)] and what he does is he sets underground ticket booths on fire (with the attendant still inside). Not too long after the film’s release a similar crime was committed, and several relevant people such as Bob Dole wanted to boycott showings of the movie. Nevertheless the movie itself didn’t make a lot of money, considering the $68 million that it cost to produce it.

Othello (1995)

This is of course the famous play by William Shakespeare as adapted by writer/director Oliver Parker [An Ideal Husband (1999)]. It often tries to maintain a stage-play feel with having an actor addressing the audience as if in a theatre, but the attempt looked kitsch to me. But take your own pick as this has 7.0 stars on IMDb. I personally don’t like period pieces, and even more so when those employ difficult language.

The $11 million film, despite having many name actors at its disposal, including Laurence Fishburne [A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)] and Kenneth Branagh [Frankenstein (1994)], it failed at the box-office grossing a little more than $2 million.

Delta of Venus (1995)

This is of course based on the Delta of Venus novel by Anaïs Nin, and it was directed by Zalman King who has delivered similar films such as Wild Orchid (1989). It is essentially a passionate love story between Lawrence Walters [Costas Mandylor from the Saw franchise] and Elena Martin [Audie England from A Place Called Truth (1998)]. Elena is a writer and she pens a series of erotic fantasies that she has and one of them includes The Clairvoyant [Adewale Akinnuoye-Agabaje from Killer Elite (2011)]. The whole attempt is often very erotic and even poetic at times, but I would not call it a good movie by any stretch of the word.

National Lampoon’s Senior Trip (1995)

In a weird turn of events, the President of USA [George Robertson from the Police Academy franchise] invites some rebellious students from Fairmount High School, to a discussion on the future of education. The trip itself is a peculiar outfit for them to be as outrageous as they were back in class.

This is obviously an uninteresting ‘90s trash comedy full of stereotypes, including the character of the fat student [Eric Edwards from Candyman (1992)] who apparently has sex with an Asian lady, but the incident is rather implied and we don’t really see it. It was directed by Kelly Makin [Mickey Blue Eyes (1999)].

When Night is Falling (1995)

Camille Baker [Pascale Bussières from Bittersweet Memories (2004)] is a teacher at a Christian school. Petra Soft [Rachel Crawford from The Man (2005)] is a performer at a carnival. They fall in love with each other, and Camille has to fight her conservative background as well as the terrible people that surround her. It’s an uphill battle and while her environment is seeking for god, she found something more important: love.


Writer/director Patricia Rozema [Mansfield Park (1999)] delivered a film that is on one hand erotic beyond words, but on the other hand – and most importantly – it is a film that shows genuine affection (in a very cute way) which makes it not only the best lesbian film I’ve ever seen, but also the most touching romance film I came across in many years. It went unrated in theatres despite originally receiving a NC-17, and we should be glad that some filmmakers still have such guts. Do yourself a favour and buy a copy of this masterpiece.
