I’ve wanted to check out the movie Pure ever since I had the pleasure of interviewing Asa Akira in January, but I had no idea just how much I was missing out on until now. Read on for a preview of the late, great David Aaron Clark’s final masterpiece – arriving on the Evil Angel channel next weekend.
Sada (Asa Akira) is a receptionist at a dungeon. She claimed not to want anything to do with the actual sessions, she just needed money to pay the bills. Mistress Sun (Jessica Bangkok) and Mistress Sayori (Lana Violet) did the dirty work – including breaking in a new submissive named Cherry (Destiny).
As part of her job, Sada attends the occasional BDSM event. Upon arriving at an art opening/BDSM soiree, she sidles up to Mistress Sun;s husband Kichi (Keni Styles), whom she has a thing for. In the background, the two dommes and Cherry put on a little show of their own.
After the show, Mistress Sun gets down to a little side action in the bathroom, unbeknownst to her husband, with a gentleman (Valentio) Kichi had met a few minutes before. Sun’s wearing a very hot latex outfit and seems to be trying to get what looks like a good 10 inches of dick down her throat.
Sayori in an equally hot latex outfit (with thigh highs with a garter belt) invites Kichi and Sada back to the dungeon where Mr. Marcus is locked in a cage. Sayori fucks Mr. Marcus while Sada sits in Kichi’s lap in the corner. They seem to have some serious chemistry.
Kichi and Sada eventually start getting undressed and rubbing each others’ business while the other two are still going at it. You can see they’re turned on by watching them. It’s hot because they’re not just naked and fucking all of a sudden – you can imagine that might be how it’d really happen. As the vouyerism causes the tension to build between Sada and Kichi, it feels like you’re a vouyer too.
They don’t have sex in this scene, however. That said, even though she just gives him a handjob, it’s a damn hot handjob. She finishes him, licks his cum off her hand and Mr. Marcus cums on Sayori’s stomach.
Sada comes to work the next day and is embarrassed/upset when Sun called her in to see her fucking Kichi. Later, Sada calls Kichi from home and gets explicit about the things she’d like to do to him. Obviously, he comes to collect.
When he arrives, she greets him with a big knife. (Foreshadowing, anyone?) Cut to them naked on an air mattress, he’s eating her ass. They’re backlit, so it’s hard to see anything for a while, but I guess that was an artistic choice.
One thing that stood out to me during this scene was that, unlike other features, there weren’t people trying to act and then breaking character to have sex. Additionally, the filming style isn’t all close-up on the junk shots and they don’t have sex like they’re just going through positions – they have the kind of sex you never see in porn because it doesn’t offer an unobstructed view of a pussy with a dick in it. The sex is a little rough, but Sada seems to enjoy it.
After the sexing, we learn that Kichi has moved in with Sada and she’s been fired by Mistress Sun as a consequence. They lie in bed smoking pot together and Kichi tells Sada how he met Sun. Their relationship seemed more business than pleasure. Then we see scenes of Sada and Kichi having fun and being in love. A few shots of them having sex, although nothing super explicit.
Cherry shows up on a motorcycle and brings Kichi an envelope of money – a bribe from Sun to entice him back to her. Sada and Kichi are naked and Sada starts sucking Kichi’s cock in front of Cherry. Then she invites Cherry to join them. She agrees and Sada kisses and touches him while Cherry blows him. Sada seems upset that Kichi’s paying more attention to Cherry than to her. It’s kind of uncomfortable to watch. Sada grabs Kichi’s dick from Cherry when he says he’s going to cum. She takes a nice oral creampie while shooting nasty looks at Cherry.
Kichi walks Cherry out and she mentions that he seems to have dangerous tastes in women. Sada later tells Kichi that she has a “friend” who helps her out financially that she can call on because they’ve been too busy fucking to actually work. They have some sex on the air mattress, surrounded by candles, drinking wine. It turns really rough, but Sada smiles at the end.
The old white man “friend” comes by and doses Sada with LSD. Cut to Sada all shibari’d up and her friend in leather daddy gear. She’s giggly at first but she earns her money by submitting completely to him. There’s a lot of oral sex in this scene and the guy really dominates the crap out of Sada. Toward the end she’s rimming him, sticking her fingers in his ass and sucking his balls. It’s a serious D/s scene with breath play, slapping, the works.
The next morning, Sada’s “friend” heads to a faculty meeting and she counts her money. Later, she gets back from grocery shopping in a bad mood, and pulls a knife on Kichi. Apparently being threatened with a knife gets him hot and she jerks him off (left handed!) while holding the knife to his cock. He cums and then they get to the fucking. And the near-fatal choking.
Things progress rapidly into ever more deviant sex. Cherry calls to check up on them because no one’s heard from Kichi or Sada in weeks and Sada gets jealous. They spend the night having transcendent sex. Things go downhill for Kichi from there. I don’t want to give the whole plot away, but I’ll simply say that knives and penises are involved.
Overall, Pure was the most enjoyable feature I’ve seen in years despite the rather graphic ending. My personal taste is strictly gonzo, but there was a lot to like about this film that transcended genre.
My kudos to Asa Akira, Keni Styles and the rest of the cast for turning the late David Aaron Clark’s take on a true story of sex, obsession and murder into what I consider one of the best porn features ever made.
Watching Pure obviously requires a subscription to the Evil Angel channel, but to me, this movie alone is worth the price of admission.
