Cool new German erotic site Lvstprinzip gave Silver Shoes a very nice review (German).
Editor Theresa Lachner recounts her frustration at being told that only women must want to see real orgasms and personal connection in their porn. She offers up the term “slow porn” (originally named by Sensate Films) as a genderless and accurate name for porn like Silver Shoes.
“One such example is Jennifer Lyon Bell, who’s doing a great (and slow) job as a film director. Her label Blue Artichoke Films stands for erotic film for people who love film. This arthouse approach (paired with authentic, hot sex scenes) is what makes here oevre so special, and her new movie, Silver Shoes, is no exception. It just came out and has already received tons of awards – and rightly so – it’s amazing! The loose plot deals with sexual fluidity and the erotic connotation of clothing. Bell studied in Harvard, and she’s not afraid to put some brains into her movies. Nothing wrong with that – and then you get to lean back and enjoy watching beautiful human beings doing sexy things in three different scenarios. The femme who likes to wear men’s underwear, the housesitter who gets overwhelmed by her emotions and the new gay friend who’s not that gay afer all. This is slow porn for you, ladies and (dare I say it) gentlemen! Sexual fantasies that appeal to your intellect and intimate areas in equal measures, whether the actors get married in the end or not.”
