CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Once the romance has cooled off, how do couples keep the fire burning? That's what New Sensations intends to explore with its newest series, aptly dubbed "Couples," an offshoot of its AVN Award winning Romance Series that will address real-life issues couples face after the honeymoon is over.
The first installment of the series, Torn, comes from acclaimed team Eddie Powell and Jacky St. James, and stars such noted industry thespians as Steven St. Croix, India Summer, Remy LaCroix, Raylene, Tom Byron, Samantha Ryan and Chad Alva.
The recently back-in-action St. Croix, for one, calls Torn "one of the highlights of my career," adding, "This is the future of adult features. In all my years, I've never seen a better made film in this industry."
Narrated by "Drew" (St. Croix), Torn tells the story of a man whose marriage to "Christine" (Summer) has lost its spark and intimacy. After a chance encounter with "Mimi" (LaCroix), an enthusiastic young art student who introduces a refreshing level of passion and honesty into his life, he's inspired to try and salvage his own relationship. But when Christine resists his romantic advances, Drew finds solace in Mimi and their attraction evolves into an illicit affair. Facing society’s judgment and the possibility of hurting Christine, with whom he’s spent so much of his life, Drew is torn. Is the pursuit of true happiness and a love one never thought possible ultimately worth it when so much else is at stake?
St. Croix will be promoting Torn on Sirius' Spice Radio show "Legends" today at 11 am PST. Fans are encouraged to call Steven during the show at (800) 774-2388. Torn releases in late August. Stay tuned for the trailer, which will be available for viewing next week.
