“Gem vs. The Dream Catcher” from Superheroine World

SHW 15 08 175x131 Gem vs. The Dream Catcher from Superheroine WorldIt’s been quite some time since the last superheroine release from the Slayer Paris team, but Gem vs. The Dream Catcher returns to the familiar formula of a hot superheroine facing off against a powerful opponent… and losing.  This particular video is noteworthy because: a) it’s written and directed by none other than Paris Kennedy, and b) it features an uncommonly hot superheroine played by Lux Kassidy.  If you want a brief plot introduction followed by non-stop peril, you should check out Gem vs. The Dream Catcher.

We’re introduced to the title character, Gem, in an introductory sequence with the superheroine (sexily dressed in pajamas) receiving instructions over the telephone from the police commissioner.  Oddly, this expository information really has nothing to do with the adventure we’re about to see, but I guess it establishes the character as a trusted, crime-fighting superherione.

Lux falls asleep and finds herself mysteriously transported to what appears to be her childhood home.  Here, she encounters The Dream Catcher, played by Stacy Burke.  The two exchange some dialogue and start fighting.  At about the video’s four-minute mark, The Dream Cather gains the advantage, and from that point on (for about the next 18 minutes or so), Gem is beaten, punched, de-booted, stripped, spanked, tied up with hands behind her back (and then her feet as well), and is fondled and otherwise sexually abused.  Eventually, she’s left unconscious and writhing around on the ground.

So, that’s about it for the plot.  I thought the acting during the dialogue scenes was okay (not spectacular by any means), but Lux Kassidy looks really, really hot as Gem, and her performance during peril scenes is really pretty good.  The plot is pretty simple, and I thought the recent Black Falcon series had more dramatic intrigue, but still, it’s a really enjoyable video for fans of the genre.  And it’s written and directed by Paris Kennedy, who shows a lot of talent behind the camera.  So check it out!

  1. Thank you for the review HM! Thanks for the kind words and I agree with you on the areas where the video was weak.

    I knew Lux Kassidy was an amazing beauty but when working for a model for the first time (especially when they haven’t done this kind of shoot before), I am hesitant to do a big budget production, just incase she can’t act, fight or the fans simply don’t like her. I guess I kind of looked at this video as an audition for Lux and focused on heavy peril, less on storyline. But if the fans like her ( it’s all about what the fans want to see), I will definitely make the next installment of the “Gem” storyline something more epic and dramatic, along the lines of the “Black Falcon” series. We have a new studio with sets being built this month and I would love to bring more depth to her story.

    Would love to know what the fans think of Lux, and if they would like to see her in a longer, higher budget production. =) I personally think she has a lot of potential to grow to be an excellent superheroine. I remember being a “deer in the headlights” when shooting my first superheroine video ever, back in the day, haha.

    Thanks again!

  2. More Lux! More Lux!
    This was a good introduction from her, she was awasome!
    Next “Gem” story is a good plan. Could she meet with the also fantastic Black Falcon?

  3. saxman314

    Great! I don’t really go for the f/f stuff so much, but it’s not like you’ve gotta twist my arm to make me watch… Lux is a bombshell. +1 for bringing her back.

    Out of curiosity, Paris, what was your first superheroine video?

  4. My pleasure, Paris! I really wouldn’t call the video “weak.” I think fans will really enjoy it. Lux is super hot and there’s a ton of peril, so I’d say it’s a successful video. :)

    Can’t wait to see what you guys do with a new studio, new sets, feature length films, etc.

  5. Oooh….Black Falcon and Gem together? As a performer and a pervert I wouldn’t mind that. >:) It wont be the next Lux movie, I already wrote that one, but maybe the one after! I like the idea!

    So glad you guys like her! Sadly she only works with girls or I would have definitely paired her with a male villain!

    Saxman314- The first ever superheroine video I ever did was for Punished Heroines. I was soooo nervous, LOL. But I learned a lot!

    That kinda sucks…my 2 favorite models of yours (other than you) are Cali Logan and now Lux Cassidy. My favorite content is the forced sim-sex. Sadly, neither of these 2 models will apparently ever do the forced ravishing…sigh. Right now, the only models you that I think do are you, of course, and Nicole Oring….I guess I’ll have to settle with forced orgasms with Lux’s future vids. Anyway, best of luck.

  7. Oh, you already wrote the next Lux movie?
    Can you give us some spilers?

    And I’m glad you like the Gem+Black Falcon idea.

  8. Warren Griffin

    Paris,

    For balance, since you and Alex obviously really listen to fans here, I’ll just put in a plug for the camp that thinks FF peril is *totally fine* and would like to see you keep it in the options for some of your vids, like this one. So Lux wanting to stick to FF plots is not a detractor for everyone, and she is SO good, you really just have to keep her regardless. ;) If this was just an “audition video” for her, I can’t wait to see Lux rock the house in a fully developed performance!

    I’m also keen on spoilers for her next video for you! hehe

  9. Afternoon!

    I know it’s a bummer, I personally prefer M/F scenarios. But when you run into girls like Cali Logan and Lux Kassidy who are so good, you gotta work around their limits. I will definitely be on the hunt for a new girl who has the acting/fighting chops, but is also cool with M/F sexual scenarios! I guess i’m really picky. It’s REALLY important to me that they can do the reactions right. Or sell a punch. If they can’t it just ruins the scene for me.

    The movie will be my first under my new adult feature company. I figured my first movie should be a subject I am really comfortable with. Superheroines! I cast Lux in the lead immediately after shooting her in “Gem”.

    The movie will be shot in softcore AND hardcore, so those of you fetishists who don’t care to see real sex, you will be able to download an edited version at http://www.superheroineworld.com, and the hardcore will be released on DVD for more mainstream porn fans. Lux will be in only F/F scenarios of course, but there will be lots of other M/F fight and sexual scenes in the movie. I’ll be playing a villainess bounty hunter. =D

    Ok, that’s all I can say for now! If you need your Lux fix, I know Alex Bettinger is shooting her for X-Club wrestling next week! So there will be more Lux VERY soon!

    Dude, that sounds AWESOME!

    Dunno how easy it is to get mainstream porn stars to do these videos, but a few you could consider are:
    Bree Olsen
    Sienna West
    Rachel Starr
    Abbey Brooks
    Carmella Bing
    Eva Angelina
    Charley Chase
    Sophie Dee
    Trina Michaels
    Bobbi Starr

    Dunno how well all of those could pull off a superheroine role, but I’ve seen all of them get dominated and enjoy it in some video or another. I feel like Bree Olsen or Bobbi Starr in particular would have the acting chops to do it right. Or someone like Dragonlily from kink.com who could easily sell the fight scenes and top aspect, but totally gets off on domination, too.

    Well said Paris. This is so very true.

  12. drh1966

    Sorry Paris, but have to disagree with you when you said when you have girls who are that good, you work within their limits. What is it with these girls who are getting into porn, yet their laundry list of what they won’t do far exceeds what they will do? This seems to be a common trait among the newer girls coming into the business the last few years and it’s seriously ruining the genre for the majority that does enjoy M/F scenarios. Seems like its all F/F soft core lesbian porn and foot worship, none of which really has anything to do with superheroine peril. I feel that if you’re going to work in porn, especially a niche or fetish, then you should do what is expected by those who buy the material. I can see 2 girls going down on each other anywhere on the ‘net, what I’d like to see is some heroine peril!

    And Ranger87, try Rachel Steele for forced stuff. One of the few who actually give us fans what we really want. Wish Paris would do more WW stuff. I really enjoyed her Punished Heroines vid from a few years back.

  13. saxman314

    Well, it’s not like you can FORCE them to do something they don’t want to do. That aspect has to remain fantasy. I agree it’s annoying to see what looks like it’s gonna be a hot video only to find it’s lukewarm because it’s F/F, but I wouldn’t assume that my preference dictates what a girl “should” do if she’s making a living the way she wants to.

  14. rangerian

    Watched the clip last night and I am going to have to chime in with drh1966, for the last part of the production. There is already a tonn of this porn stuff around which we can buy elsewhere (and pay less).

    Agree, Lux is gorgeous.

    I’m a big fan of peril, but sick to death of the typlical Wonder Woman outfit that is so over used in peril productions. Such a boring (yawn) costume.

  15. drh1966

    Nobody is suggesting a producer force anyone to do anything. But if you are not willing to go along with what many fans want to see, then maybe you should find something else to do Sure there are guys who like the F/F stuff but what does it have to do with heroine peril?

    I’m willing to bet most of us discovered our taste for this from the old Batman and Wonder Woman TV series, not to mention comics themselves. There was no lesbian porn going on, no foot worship, none of the stuff we’re being fed these days. Most times, if not all, it was a male villain (relatable for us guys), chloro or gassing, traps, bondage, peril. It wasn’t that long ago that it dominated the landscape. Now, it’s been changed and watered down, mostly due to the girls coming in who won’t do this, won’t do that, I mean WTF!?!

    Too many of the genre producers simply aren’t making peril anymore, they’re making soft core lesbian porn, the girl just happens to be in a costume, and often its not even a costume, just some leotard or a bikini. It’s hard when you have money to spend but very little to spend it on.

  16. Paris is in Vegas at AVN, so I’ll field this one.

    I think the whole F/F vs. M/F debate is one of those that you can group with other endless (and probably fruitless) debates in this genre: cape vs. no cape; mask vs. no mask; hose vs. bare legs, and so forth. Some people like apples, others like pears. It’s really that simple.

    The fact is that we do both M/F and F/F videos–and whenever we do one, we always get requests to do the other. When we spent a lot of time doing the Black Falcon series (which was all M/F), we got tons of requests asking for more F/F vids. Sure, many fans want M/F; but trust me, just as many fans want F/F. I know this from getting request emails for the past 4 years–it’s split pretty much down the middle. If you don’t care for F/F, no worries! Just keep an eye on the site, we’re sure to do another M/F vid soon enough. In fact, the feature that we’re shooting in February will have both F/F and M/F.

    I’m not entirely confident I understand your other arguments, drh1966. I mean, in this Gem video, Gem was beat up and her power stone bashed in; then she was stripped, bound, humiliated, forced to orgasm, etc. I’m not sure I understand what you mean when you ask what this has to do with heroine peril. Could you clarify? Because to me, it’s pretty obvious…

    It might be the case that your personal preference for the type of peril wasn’t included in this video–but that’s a lot different than there being *no* peril. Know what I mean? But feel free to make a request! What kind of peril would you really like to see?

  17. ranger87

    Alex, I appreciate both you and Paris taking the time to post on these sites. I’m somewhere down the middle. I absolutely hate debooting and foot worship. I agree the first part of the vid was fantastic! The fighting, the domination, it was all great. But the last part, with the debooting and scissoring…it’s sooo…It may be just me, but I think scissoring just looks awkward and weird.

    One solution I like for those of us who are fans of the forced sex, but the models we like only do G/G is this: Remember the old Dark Hawk vids with the “lightsaber” strap-on? I think using this for girl on girl forced sex scenarios would be great, especially with Cali or Lux, who are iffy on letting guys do that to them on screen.

    But to drh1966’s credit, there are a lot of OTHER producers out there that just settle for doing softcore porn with superhero outfits and barely any peril…

  18. Thanks to Alex and Paris for providing such thoughtful commentary from “within” the industry. It’s very much appreciated.
    I guess as a longtime follower of this genre, what distinguishes the SH fetish from most, if not all, bondage, foot worship, tickling, or whatever else happens to float someone’s individual boat, is that it depends upon the establishment of some sort of framing and character development to “work”, at least for me.A good PLOT is sexy,which is why I think that most “adult entertainment ” is almost universally boring.

    SHW’s new film ‘Jem’ is, I think, a step in the right direction. It just seems to me that so much more could have been done with the framing devise of “The Dream”.(SPOILERS AHEAD): Dreamcatcher has suceceded in depowering the dreaming superheroine; and all she does is de-boot, fondle, bind and climax her? It seemed kind of silly…why go through all that trouble? After the initial confrontation, the film seems to take a “lowest common denominator” approach by touching on as many “closely related” festishes (de-booting, bondage, forced climax, sleepy, etc) as it can squeeze in. To me, these are things you can find ANYWHERE, particularly on the net! That said, I thought the first seven minutes or so were some of the strongest Alex’s site has ever put together…and Lux Kassiddy looks like she stepped straight out of one of Image Comics books from the 90’s! I’m looking forward to what’s on the plate for 2011.

  19. drh1966

    Hi Alex,
    Agreed that M/F and F/F thing is an endless debate, it just seems that the genre has gone too far into the F/F thing the last few years. As far as the lack of peril I referred to, I meant the F/F may start with the heroine being captured somehow but the majority of the clips tend to be soft core lesbian porn. You may consider it peril, and I guess in some ways it is, but it just seems to be an excuse for the girls to get it on with each other which we can find in abundance on the net. Lovers of heroine peril want to see story, setup, traps, peril. Sure some want girl on girl action, but isn’t that where different fetishes are bleeding into one another? Too many vids are a mishmash of fetishes, too much squeezed in in an effort to appeal to as many fans as possible thereby watering down the vid. Why, as a consumer, should I pay $20-$40 for a 20-45 min. clip that only contains 3 or 4 minutes of what I may like and the balance being stuff I have absolutely no interest in?

    My tastes are pretty simple I think: chloro play, a WW type character, male villain, some simple bondage, gagging, groping, good struggling and even better if it contains some forced sexual action. I’ve been thinking that if you mixed the Paragon style with what Rachel Steele is doing, that would be my ideal. After all, a male villain that decides to capture WW would most likely not simply deboot her, give her a foot rub or the magic want treatment and be happy with that. He’d probably take full advantage of her, think the Fausta episode. Do you really think Rojak, the guy under the stage, wouldn’t take some liberties with a half conscious WW in his arms while nobody is looking? For me, it’s going where the TV show couldn’t. That’s all I really want to see.

    Christina Carter posted something yesterday over at Hypnotics forum wanting to know why a custom she did, and has since made available on C4S, is doing so well when it is, as she calls it, “vanilla”. It contains simple setup, story, male villain, basic bondage, capture. No forced orgasms, foot worship or any of the other typical things we seem to get, yet its selling quite well. I think that speaks volumes and I’m hoping producers take notice.

  20. Paris Kennedy

    Hey guys. Just got back to L.A. I am thinking about everything everyone said and suggested. I try and base each new movie on suggestions I get from the fans, so I adjust accordingly. I’m happy to read what you guys want to see more of, and also what you want to see LESS of. It helps me plan each new movie. And I hear where some of you guys are coming from. I think superheroineworld.com is still finding it’s true niche, i’ve experimented a lot with themes. But I think a lot of you will be pleased with the direction we are headed!

    I can’t please everyone, but I just want to make great movies for the people that are into what we do! =)

    xoxoxo
    Paris

  21. Glad you are back, Paris!
    You mentioned you have already plans for the next episode with Gem/Lux Kassidy. Can you give us some spoilers?

  22. shadowlight

    I really liked the part where the power gem was being bashed in and hope there can be more torture and weakening of her power source in the next video! Perhaps some tie-in with how sexually arousing her will cause the gem to fade in color before ultimately being forced to detransform will be nice!

  23. Warren Griffin

    Hi Paris,

    I really appreciate you listening to your fans. And because you’re really listening, it encourages people to actually speak up and say what they think, so I will too! :)

    Even though I am a fan of FF peril (and maybe I happen to be in the minority about that on this particular board, though I agree with Alex that MF vs FF is probably pretty balanced in the broader context), I still relate to some points drh1966 was making. Basically, I watch superheroine peril videos for the peril angle. I guess that sounds obvious, but for whatever reason, girl-girl sex in and of itself is harder to accept as peril. I think this is both anatomical and psychological, but even if you say the orgasm was “forced,” it’s just harder to depict lesbian sex in a way that really bespeaks domination in these videos. If you took the exact same video plot (say, this one, Dream Catcher) and shot it once as FF and once as MF, it’s obvious that the combat/depowering/beating parts of the storyline could be depicted identically in both versions, but the parts of the plot more devoted to sex would probably come off looking a lot more violent/dominating/abusive in the MF version and therefore would much more easily seem like an extension of the peril itself in that version, compared to the softcore FF sex resulting in “forced” orgasm in the FF version, which just seems so tame and generic and always at least quasi-consensual by comparison to forced MF sim-sex. So once a FF heroine video moves on from the unequivocally perilous parts (power drains and beatdowns, etc.) and starts focusing on lesbian erotica, it does seem to lose some of the peril energy that brought me to the video in the first place, in a way that a MF video might not during an equivalent forced sex scene.

    So here’s where I come down: I happen to like (yes, even prefer) FF action when it comes to the straight peril stuff, and you and Alex know how to present females in fantasy fights like nobody else, so I really am a fan of your FF heroine *peril* work, like the first part of the Dream Catcher video. But when you do make such FF peril videos (and I really hope you keep them in your repertoire), I would suggest spending less time on softcore sex and instead staying more focused on truly frank peril action that highlights the heroine’s vulnerability as she is overpowered, dominated, and brutally beaten and otherwise abused (rather than pleasured) by a powerful female opponent.

    On the other hand, when you are doing a MF peril video or scene, I think forced sex can flow much more naturally and convincingly as part and parcel of the peril action itself, so I think you can spend more time on the sex elements in a MF scene without detracting from the peril vibe that your fans are watching for.

    So it’s not so much whether you do FF scenes or MF scenes–please do BOTH. It’s what you DO with those scenes that matters, and I think you need to handle them differently if you want the peril meter to remain maximally high in both types of scenes.

    Interestingly, ranger87 mentioned the old lightsaber strapon, which sort of bridges the categories a bit. Give the villainess a cock (or something like it), and suddenly the perilous aspects of the forced sex action can be much more similar in a FF scenario to what they would be in a corresponding MF scenario. I think I’d agree with that observation.

    Hopefully some of that makes sense.

  24. I always thought the “lightsaber strap on” worked well. I’d like to see it used more.

  25. Bob Loblaw

    Sorry if this isn’t the right place for this, but I tried to contact you through e-mail and have received no response. I’m looking to purchase an episode of x club wrestling. Please send me an e-mail. Thanks.

    [ EDIT: I have forwarded your email address to Alex. - HM ]

  26. Gorleser

    Heck, I remember when there was *no* Superheroine Peril widely available.

    Porn is amazing, because the consumers are insatiable– almost nobody goes back and looks at old material. It’s always about the drive to get the “new”.

    I don’t know what to make of it that it’s so widely available now (and that the producers are so available for feedback) that each individual can request customization down to fine details.

    Alex and Paris have a big problem– their stuff is so good and so exceedingly well-done that we all want them to do exactly what each of us as individuals want, when really what I think would be the best for the product if they by and large followed their own vision. Too much customization leads to a watered down product!

  27. Second the idea, Gorleser! I think the only comparable productions are being done by the Zen/Giga crew in Japan, and they have the advantages of much bigger budgets and seemingly fewer cultural tabooes around M/F peril. It seems to me, though, that in the better Japanese productions, the plot drives the peril/fetishes, rather than the peril/fetishes driving the plot..I think that represents the next level in the genre, one that the better American houses (Dano at SHC, for a long time, and Alex/Paris at SHW recently) seem to be moving towards. Read the descrptions on the Zen website, and it’s always a summary of the plot..not “contains sleepy, girl-girl sex, strap-ons” etc. They seem to have more trust in the intuitive intelligence of their audience!

  28. I too prefer MF, however FF sex resulting in “forced” orgasms is not only visually stimulating for many viewers but undoubtedly humiliating for the bound heroine.

    If you’re male, ask yourself this question. If I was tied up and another male made me cum with the use of sex toys, would I regard that as “tame” or in any way quasi-consensual, even if only in comparison to forced MF simulated sex.

    Why would it be any different for a straight female. Do you honestly think all women are kinda gay, Bi-sexual.

    Both MF and FF domination is extremely arousing if viewed correctly.

  29. drh1966

    I find too many producers try to squeeze in as many fetishes as they can in an effort to cast a larger net and appeal to the maximum number of fans. This does water down the product greatly. A producer who creates vids based on his/her own fetish and vision, will probably produce something much better because at least their heart will be in it. It may not appeal to as many people, but how many people are not buying these mishmash vids because they are watered down? The producer only knows what they sold, not what they could have sold. Quality products will rise to the top and attract viewers. Sometimes a niche can be more profitable and rewarding than being generic. I cite Paragon vids as an example. Niche but extremely well done. Repetitive, but remains vital because of the chase for something new.

  30. drh1966

    Correctly? Is there even such a thing in viewing porn? You either get off on something or you don’t.

  31. Correctly as in your presumptions.

    If you presume all female participants to be lesbians or bi-sexual, then the situation is less intense because on some level you surmise she’s partially enjoying what’s transpiring.

    However, if you go into it presuming the heroine at hand is completely straight 100% heterosexual and she’s being ravished by villainous lesbians, THEN the situation becomes extremely hot, because it’s even more traumatic for the heroine than if she was assaulted by someone of the opposite sex who she has a natural attraction for and could in the viewers mind be partially attracted to, therefore maintaining the possibility she could be somewhat enjoying the occurring violation of her body.

    You’re familiar with the term (She wanted it.) If the heroine is straight and she’s violated by lesbians, than NO she definitely in no way wanted it, which makes the deed Hot.

    Parenthetically, I’d like to reiterate I prefer MF. Mainly because most men are far more physically imposing and the disparity in size leads one to believe the targeted heroine is doomed from the start. Her subjugation an inextricably preordained procession of lascivious lamentation.

  32. ranger87

    Technically, the same thing could be said, James, about a lesbian superheroine being violated by a male viallain. But yes, I get your point.

  33. Precisely, a lesbian heroine taken by male villains is equally if not more so arousing, excellent point. Knowing the heroine is in no way on any level a willing participant, magnifies the allure immensely.

  34. As a female who enjoys superheroine peril, the whole F/F thing is a real bummer. Women tend to be evenly matched in fighting, I think most of us want to see an unfair fight where the villain is much stronger than the heroine. F/F stuff really is “vanilla”, there is no real stigma against it because it occurs everyday in modern society. Whereas, someone mentioned how men would feel to be beaten up by other men and forced to orgasm, there is a much larger taboo against it because its not socially acceptable and the two really aren’t comparable. I’m completely straight and had lots of lesbian experiences (I will admit there was often alcohol involved), but I’m just saying that men don’t sit around and make out with each other and feel each other up. Most women have tried it.

    It is also disappointing to me that a lot of the “models” and actresses have these limitations. And the reasons they have these limitations because F/F is safe and more socially acceptable. You really aren’t dirtying your hands if you just try some F/F movies.

    In regards to Gem, the fact that its two women just holds no stimulation for me and most women like me. We want to watch men abusing and taking advantage of women. Gem is a gorgeous girl and I’d love to see her pitted against a man anyday, but it just doesn’t feel like she’s in that much peril against a woman. I would be way more afraid of a man attacking me than a woman. And that is where the unbelievability of F/F superheroine peril comes from. Women are physically weaker than men and that is what makes the superheroine peril so much better.

  35. ranger87

    Very well put, Britt. As a guy, I feel the same way. Of course I know it’s just fantasy, and would never want a girl forced like that, but the FANTASY of a guy dominating a girl is so much more arousing and intense…going into the psychological aspect, it’s probably because of the real danger of men doing that to women. Like I said, I don’t condone it, but there is nothing wrong with the fantasy. I know it’s not a perfect analagy, but I compare it to people watching horror movies. Most would never really wish for real people to die in a horrific manner, but watching the fantasy of it, for a lot of people, is fun.

    Enough psycho analysis from me. Basically, I also think that a female superheroine being dominated and forced on by a male villain is a lot better than a female villain, for all the reasons you said, and more.

  36. Yes indeed, very well put. BTW, real life non consensual sex is as you know a crime. Whether it’s committed by a male or female, the response should be the same.

    Regarding alcohol, alcohol does many things including erasing inhibitions and making people vulnerable. Therefore, either you’ve been sexually assaulted numerous times or you’re Bi-sexual not straight.

    Going beyond a societal standpoint, looking at it from a personal viewpoint, if your boyfriend told you he’s not gay or Bi-sexual but informed you, every time he got drunk in college, he had consensual sex with his best friend and roommate Peter, the only rational response would be, SURE you’re not gay or Bi-sexual, you’re totally straight, yeah, that’s the ticket. I was born at night, but not last night.

  37. James,

    Can you explain how your post is relevant to “Gem vs. the Dream Catcher”? It seems to me that you’re simply attacking another poster and making some pretty ugly remarks in the process. I’m pretty sure no one here is the least bit interested in your opinion of Britt’s sexual orientation.

    You’ve also continued the unfortunate tradition of welcoming new female commenters with unprovoked hostility. Gee, I wonder why we don’t get more girls posting here…

  38. This is turning into a pretty interesting discussion of the roots of superheroine peril. It’s cool to get the perspectives of women as well, both producer and fan. I’ve read that many women have a sexual fantasy of being overpowered and taken by a man, so I guess it isn’t that surprising that some women would enjoy this fetish, but it’s nice to have feedback from that angle.

    My thoughts on the topic are pretty straightforward. The idea of heroic crime fighters is appealing because it would be so risky to do. The idea of women putting on a costume and battling the bad guys is even more appealing. Women are generally less powerful fighters than men, so a heroine might more easily be viewed as the underdog, and be taking an even greater risk of defeat than a man. Also unique for heroines is what the bad guy might do if the heroine is actually defeated.

    My favorite scenario is a heroine battling a guy (or guys) who seems to have the advantage in strength, skill or brutality. After a back and forth fight, the heroine is slowly overcome and has to deal with the possibility of losing the fight and what might happen as a result. My preferred outcome is the heroine finding reserves of strength she has to dig deep to harness, and prevailing from what appeared a hopeless situation. The “Oh my god, he’s got me…what’s he going to do now…” moment is a thrilling thing.

  39. Anyways.. Paris Id like to see more fighting and less sexual acts, I might probably be alone on that but it is a superheroine movie after all haha. And i definitely prefer one sided fights where the heroine is getting brutally beaten the entire time too. Gem is hands down one of the sexiest heroines ive seen id like to see her getting tortured alot more:) also more low blows:) and shes got a really nice stomach that should be targeted a lot too.

  40. Hi HM

    “Can you explain how your post is relevant to “Gem vs. the Dream Catcher”?”

    I’m only responding to what someone said in the thread. How is her having drunk lesbian sex relevant to Gem vs the Dream Catcher? She responded to what I said and I’m responding to what she said.

    “It seems to me that you’re simply attacking another poster and making some pretty ugly remarks in the process.”

    I’m not attacking. How is disagreeing attacking? She said she’s completely straight and had lots of lesbian experiences. That’s an oxymoron. All I was saying is, you’re not completely straight if you’ve had numerous lesbian sexual encounters. And, if you can be specific in regards to ugly remarks I’ll gladly apologize.

    “I’m pretty sure no one here is the least bit interested in your opinion of Britt’s sexual orientation.”

    Wow, omniscient or pretentious.

    “You’ve also continued the unfortunate tradition of welcoming new female commenters with unprovoked hostility.”

    Unprovoked hostility? “Yes indeed, very well put” Is that unprovoked hostility? … Disagreeing with a statement is not unprovoked hostility.

    “Gee, I wonder why we don’t get more girls posting here

  41. “Gee, I wonder why we don’t get more girls posting here

  42. It’s worth pondering.

    Lastly, If someone says they have had lots of lesbian experiences but they’re completely straight, that makes sense to you? I was simply questioning that assertion.

    HM

    If you don’t want me to comment on capricious statements, just say so, and I’ll refrain, I respect your authority.

  43. James,

    Three posts in a row? Really? All attacking another poster and the administrator? And finishing with that incredibly self-righteous statement? You better come up with a new alias, because “James” is never going to be taken seriously around here again.

  44. Three posts… Bert you have my sympathies If you actually don’t have the intellectual capacity to tell I was responding to a single post and the site separated my response.

    Attacking? Be specific. You can’t, so you won’t. You’re making an obvious attempt at fanning the flames, Pathetic.

    I don’t find your post complimentary “Bert”, I guess you’re attacking another poster, interjecting your comments into a conversation to, what? Cast a cowardly aspersion. Congratulations, mission accomplished, Einstein.

  45. Your gift of talking down to people is sure to win you many supporters. In the unlikely event you could escape from your narcissism for a few minutes and actually comprehend how your posts make you look, you’d probably shut the hell up. I won’t be holding my breath.

  46. James,

    Britt’s point was about the social acceptability of female homosexuality compared to that of male homosexuality, and how that impacts many viewers’ preferences regarding superheroine peril videos. You ignored all of that and focused on a throwaway comment she made about her own personal sexual experiences. Your entire post was an attack on this one issue, in which you implicitly accused her of lying about her sexual orientation and history. You said:

    “…either you’ve been sexually assaulted numerous times or you’re Bi-sexual not straight.”

    What a rude, tactless (and just plain stupid) thing to say. This was the ugly remark I referred to, so you can now gladly apologize to Britt whenever you’d like.

    As for the rest, I’m not interested in negotiating any of this with you. You can post whatever you’d like, and if you act like a douche, you’ll be banned. This is not about my “authority” (I’m not running for congress; I’m running a blog about superheroine videos); rather, it’s about providing a forum where fans can discuss these videos without being personally attacked by people who never learned basic rules of common decency.

    It’s also just a waste of everyone’s time to have to read through discussions like this, so I would rather avoid it altogether. Hence, the easy-to-understand rule(s) for posting comments. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Thought this was to discuss superheroine movies (agree with HM), and comment on the actual movie? Really not the place to be going off topic really, as it bumps off other superheroine movies related comments on the side panel. As this blog doesn’t list new comments anywhere else, it’s kind of annoying. No offense!

  48. No problem, You’re welcome.

    Britt, If you took offense to what I said, I apologize. I didn’t ignore what you said, I said, “Yes indeed, very well put.” And I don’t consider what you said about your own personal sexual experiences, a throwaway comment. Others may not care about your safety, but I do. These movies are just for fun, what’s happened or happening in your life is what’s truly important. If girls are taking advantage of you when you’re drunk, forcing themselves on you without your consent, it’s wrong and illegal. I wasn’t attacking you on this issue, I was attempting to help you see that. And I never called you a liar. I was simply stating a fact, individuals who are consensually intimate with both sexes are by definition Bi-sexual. There’s nothing wrong with being Bi-sexual, if it’s what you are. Facts aren’t rude, tactless, or stupid, they’re informative. Again if you were offended, I’m sorry and I apologize.

    Wow, way to maintain free and open discussion… Maybe an addendum to the ONE RULE should be made:

    All replies should be only to the original review, not to comments by other posters.

    That way we can never go off-topic, however minutely.

  50. Thanks for your apology and for your concern about Britt’s safety. Although I do have to point out that obviously nothing in Britt’s post indicates in any way that she is in danger or has ever been in danger of any kind, ever. Nor is there any reason to believe she’s suffered the kind of traumatic experiences you’ve described. Her “safety” has never been an issue in this discussion and has nothing to do with any of this. I do appreciate your apology nonetheless.

  51. I appreciate your suggestion, saxman, but I would rather not impose a rule like that because it would effectively end the possibility of having discussions of any kind. As long as there are no personal insults or other douche-like comments, there should be no problem having free and open discussions without any problems at all.

  52. HM You’re welcome. Just to let you know, Britt’s one line really caught my attention because guys are notorious for getting girls drunk and then taking advantage of them.

    Since Britt said she’s completely straight but has had lots of lesbian experiences when alcohol was involved, I didn’t know if the alcohol simply washed away her inhibitions or if she was taken advantage of while intoxicated, and I wanted to let her know in case it was the latter, guys doing that to her or girls doing that to her is equally wrong.

    But like you said, she never said anything bad happened, she never specified if she was just buzzed or totally drunk, if things were consensual or non consensual. Hopefully, the alcohol just erased her inhibitions and she had lots of awesome nights.

  53. Fair enough, James. I didn’t really read her comments that way and thought she was simply implying that while she may have had various homosexual experiences in her past, she now considers herself strictly heterosexual. I know you don’t seem to consider that a possibility, but if Britt describes herself that way, how can anyone else presume to know more about her sexual orientation than she does?

    It just seems to me that with all of the social and biological complexities that comprise a person’s psyche, there are all sorts of influences and social mechanisms that might influence a person’s sexual orientation at any given time. Maybe there’s some validity to the concept of the heterosexual-homosexual continuum, which postulates that each of us resides somewhere on a spectrum between heterosexual and homosexual, even if we’re not consciously aware of it. I can’t claim any expertise on any of this, but it seems to me that these issues are far from decided and leave open lots of possibilities for all manner of sexual orientation. But the bottom line is that if Britt tells us what she is, I think we should take her at her word rather than claim to know more about her sexuality than she does.

  54. I just want to thank Alex and Paris for taking the time to read and answer fan input. Most producers do not take anytime and it is very cool of you guys to do so. I passed on Gem vs The Dream Catcher video mainly because of the costume but I can’t wait to see what else you guys have planned for Lux Cassidy. She does make one sexy super heroine.

  55. I totally see what you’re saying, no one knows you better than yourself.

    I only questioned what she said because I thought her lesbian experiences were ongoing, and it didn’t make sense to me how you can say you’re completely straight but still be having lesbian experiences. But yeah, if her lesbian experiences are in her distant past it changes everything, and I can easily see how she now considers herself to be strictly heterosexual.

    And Britt never posted again…seriously, if she wasn’t scared off before, she is now. Too much discussion centered on her one post, IMO. If I had a board of dudes psychoanalysing everything I said, I’d bail, too.

  57. Contrary to popular belief, I’m not being held captive by lesbians. Nor have I ever been sexually assaulted against my will. Thank you for your concerns. I am quite dismayed to see someone so ardent about my affairs and sexual orientation. I just wanted to get my opinion out there for Paris to use in her next Gem movie. Not be fodder for a discussion on the definitions of homosexuality.

    I will mention that I do not believe the world is so black and white that we have to be either or. I am not a lesbian nor have I ever been, even when I was experimenting. I am not bi-curious either. It doesn’t matter if I kissed a girl last week or last year. I don’t get off on sexual encounters with women. It can be fun and it can get men to notice you quickly, but its not my cup of tea.

    And finally, I confess to imbibing more than I should on occasion, but no one has ever forced me to do something I did not want to do.

    HM, thank you for coming to my defense, I feel that my post was misconstrued and used a soap box for someone else’s own issues, no one wants to see that. I appreciate your care and concern in governing over this forum so that we can each say what we like in a constructive manner.

    Sadly, Ranger, I will be more reserved in my next post because I don’t feel comfortable with people using my comments against me. Thanks for looking out, Bert. ;-)

    Now let’s return to our regularly scheduled programming.

  58. ranger87

    Well said, Britt. I’m just glad you weren’t scared away. It’s really nice to get a female’s opinions on these vids once in a while.

  59. Okay everybody, let’s get back to the board’s topic. :D
    Any information about the next Superheroine World video?
    Black Falcon? I miss Paris very much…
    Gem again? I like her very much…
    Mix of the two? I would like it very much…
