I hereby tender a Best Cinematography nomination to... Passion In Venice. The camera captures the ambiance of this Italian city's glory better than most mainstream attempts I've seen, and many of the eight sex scenes are set in sumptuous villas and attractive, secluded courtyards.
Juli Ashton, as an executive in town to bid for a huge contract, projects an innocence that seems at home in the lush settings, and her sexuality is at its peak in her three scenes with, respectively, Mark Davis and Anita Bond (look for a great ball-licking and b.j. action), Deborah Wells (very sensual kissing and labia-lapping), and Davis alone (check out the gooey facial finish). Also noteworthy is Kelly Trump's teasing dance, after which she's d.p.'d by Sean with and Valentino. Unfortunately, none of these scenes are a nomination with -- not even the masked orgy finale (wiht anal). They are, however, quite workmanlike, even artistic, and retailers should recommend this as a good couples film.
