This collection of plotted mini-features varies in interest and sexual intensity. Dirty Stories attempts to tell five sexually-oriented tales with as little dialogue as possible, while still delivering the hardcore goods.
The better sequences involve an artist, Marco Banderas, and two lovelies (Victoria Sin and Jennifer Dark) who get banged in his studio; Brooke Banner and James Deen pulling up next to each other in their cars, making eye contact and each masturbating until they rendezvous for a rambunctious hardcore scene; and a very basic but sexy scene with Monique Alexander and Trent Tesoro. Two other three-way scenes (one with Monique, Courtney James and Voodoo and the other involving Maria Bellucci, Banderas and Jenner in a boxing ring) have lots of sex, anal included, but are shot lazily with long, repetitive sequences and seem to fall flat.
Vignettes are economical and if well produced can provide as much spark in one scene as they do in a whole feature. That being the case, three out of five ain't bad.
