There’s something especially exciting about getting to peek into restricted places. Something about a door that says “Keep Out” just makes everything behind it seem more important and enticing! This is particularly true for parties; we all know that the parties we didn’t get invited to in school always seemed like they must be the very best ones. Well, Private Independent’s adult film, An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers’ Party in San Francisco gives you the opportunity to sneak a peek at en elite, invitation-only swingers’ party on the top floor of the Armory (leased by Kink.com), as well as view some hot couple’s sex with a fairly realistic and light plot.

The wordily-titled An Open Invitation: A Real Swingers’ Party in San Francisco, by Private Independent, has gotten some buzz for being a hot adult movie for couples to enjoy together. Its plot is light but realistic, detailing the adventures of a couple that start out having humdrum no-foreplay sex but end up getting seduced by another couple and introduced into an open relationship/swingers’ lifestyle. Along the way, of course, they have lots of steamy sex, culminating in a (long) final scene on the top floor of the San Francisco Armory with a real-live swingers’ party in full swing (forgive the pun!). The swingers’ party is made up of a handful of porn stars from the movie and a lot of real-life swingers brought from membership or invite-only swingers’ events, giving it a hot level of realness.
An Open Invitation is well-produced and well-directed, with a camera that gives a good view without intruding and pleasant music that doesn’t distract from the action. The actors and actresses seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves. Aside from occasional overuse of voice-dubbing during sex, An Open Invitation presents itself in a low-key, unintimidating fashion that lets the hotness on-screen speak for itself. There is a lot of sex toy use (of which I heartily approve, naturally) and good eye contact between partners. Of course, due to the subject matter, there is a lot of partner-switching and group-sex scenes (with some inspiring and unique positions), though there is a decent amount of coupled sex, as well. Everyone seems to be legitimately enjoying the sex, though there isn’t as much of a focus on female orgasm as I might have liked. There is only a light level of roughness to any of the sex, and it’s all in the “passionately rough” variety, rather than the “S&M or humiliation-oriented roughness” type. Although, as I said, there wasn’t a lot of female orgasms in the film, there is a fairly high amount of male orgasms, so if that’s something you, you won’t be disappointed; if you have a particular attraction to scenes of men ejaculating on women’s faces, there are a few such scenes in this movie (or, if you don’t like such scenes, consider yourself duly warned). The mix of porn stars and real swingers (admittedly, they seem to have hand-picked more porn-attractive swingers from their invitees) in the long final scene gives it a sexy voyeuristic quality. Finally, the fairly realistic plot gives the movie something to tie it together without being in the cheesy “sexy cable repair guy” vein and without tending to the extreme of overly artsy or depressing.
My qualms with the film were generally fairly minor. First, while there’s plenty of male/female and female/female interactions, there weren’t any male/male scenes; depending on your tastes, this may or may not be a negative factor. While there is some ethnic variety in the participants in the film, it’s generally a primarily-white affair. For the first hour and a half (leading up to the party), most of the male/female interactions tend to be pretty light on the foreplay and focused mostly on intercourse. The female/female scenes, on the other hand, have plenty of kissing and touching and more traditional foreplay. Finally, you all know that I am a heavy proponent of both lube and safer sex, so I was disappointed to see that on-camera lube use was almost non-existent, and condom use throughout the film was only sporadic.
Despite these few negative points, I would say that overall An Open Invitation is a hot film for you to enjoy alone or with a partner, particularly if you are interested in seeing some hot sex tricks and group scenes with a dash of reality by the addition of real swingers.
