It's Sasha Grey's birthday, apparently. She sits in a basement, gagged,
trying to eat a creampie (a real creampie, not a porn one). Then a guy
(Chris Johnson) comes by, the gag is removed, the creampie is eaten and
the two have sex. Next it's a spanking session between Alyssa Reece and

arthouse and avant garde cinema like Sasha Grey (co-)directs a (hardcore
porn-)movie, you expect it to look at least a little artsy - and in this
respect, Ms grey does not disappoint, the film's setting, a rundown
basement/warehouse including boiler room is at least out of the ordinary

a Sasha Grey film for its porn content than for its artistic aspirations,
