LOS ANGELES — Tristan Taormino brings an element of documentary filmmaking to her new “Rough Sex” series from Vivid Entertainment. The writer and director based the movies’ scenes entirely on the real-life fantasies of the female performers.

“So much has been made about how rough gonzo, and porn in general, has gotten in the past few years,” Taormino said. “But is rough sex by its very nature harmful and degrading? Or can it be sexy, empowering and even feminist? I challenged myself to explore these issues in this new series.”

Each scene begins with a personal interview of the female performer through which the viewer discovers “their definitions of rough sex, why they love it, how they establish trust with their partners and what they need to feel safe to play on the edge.”

“Rough Sex” stars Sasha Grey, Adrianna Nicole, Marie Luv, Satine Phoenix, Francesca Le, Derrick Pierce, Christian, Marco Banderas, Danny Wylde and Julius Ceazher.

With the casting of Grey to topline the release, Taormino probed the ingenue’s sexuality more in-depth — and perhaps more realistically — than she’s ever seen.

“When I approached Sasha Grey to do the movie, I knew she had already done lots of rough sex on camera; she’s never been afraid to explore her submissive desires,” Taormino explained. “But one thing she has never done on camera — until now — is a ‘switch’ scene where she switches between the dominant and submissive roles. Sasha is a switch in real life, so this was an opportunity to explore a real part of her sexuality. The results are an explosive scene with Danny Wylde where you’ll see a side of Sasha you’ve never witnessed before.”

“Rough Sex” ships Wednesday for a July 22 street date. To order, call Pulse Distribution’s Howard Levine at (818) 435-1607.
