Luna has appeared in two previous Sexart productions – “Just the Beginning” and “Sound of Silence” – both solo masturbation films, and both directed by Alis Locanta. In his latest creation, “Approaching,” Locanta once more casts Luna, but this time she costars with Whitney Conroy. Rather than a straight-ahead, conventional girl/girl offering, “Approaching” boasts a non-linear narrative, overtones of kink, and complex, fluid, interpersonal relationships. As it opens, Whitney Conroy faces the camera, her face wearing an expression of anticipation and ambiguity. Luna approaches, from behind, and fastens a red leather collar around her neck setting up a mistress/servant dynamic.
And yet, defying expectation, even when Luna has Whitney on a leash, it is the former who services the latter. Indeed, when the setting and costumes change, it is Luna who is pleasuring Whitney. And pleasure she does! Even while cross-cutting from one location to another, Luna brings Whitney to several increasingly powerful orgasms – Luna may hold the leash, but Whitney reaps the benefits. It’s only in the closing moments of the film, under the end credits in fact, that Luna, under Whitney’s approving gaze, furiously frigs herself to ecstasy.
Approach “Approaching” with an open mind and be prepared for a beautiful, thought provoking, and thrilling lesbian experience.
