New Sensations teamed up with AVN Award-winning director James Avalon to create Erotic Stories, a two-volume production that features five women’s stories of “forbidden lust” on each volume.
“The opportunity to work with James Avalon was one that I was not going to pass up,” said Scott Taylor, president of New Sensations, in a statement released to the press. “I had storyboarded some ideas that he then took and added dialogue to, and it was then that I was even more comfortable working with him because he was able to accurately represent what I had conceptualized through the dialogue he was creating. I’m definitely proud of the final product.”
After scripting the stories, Avalon set to work and shot parts one and two of the title back-to-back using his signature artistic detail.
“It’s kind of an interesting project,” he said. “The first volume is about games lovers play kind of cheating on your partner. It’s sophisticated and it’s more couple’s oriented – a lot more foreplay and build-up went into the set up, but once we get into the sex we keep the same intensity as the guys who just shoot for sex. We went for a bit more developed characters than normal in adult movies – real people in erotic situations rather than having people have an excuse to have a sex scene. It’s classic James Avalon.”
The first volume of Erotic Stories features Monica Sweetheart, Aria, Sabrina Snow, Jasmine Lynn, Lee Stone and Julian, but for Avalon there was one scene in particular that stood out from the crowd.
“In one episode a husband comes home and the wife has a boyfriend in the other room,” Avalon explains. “So she plays games with the husband. When he hears noise coming from the other room she says it’s a porno, but he can’t go look because he’s tied up, so then she goes to deal with the boyfriend… It was a really hot scene, and just because there’s three people in the scene doesn’t mean it turns into a DP. Some of it gets quite creative. Dani Woodward, Barrett Blade and Kurt Lockwood were involved in that one– all three great actors and stellar sexual performers.”
