Stiff (Butterflies), 30 May 2014
Author: kosmasp

First up, there are two versions of this movie. One is soft-core and the other (you guessed it) is hardcore. Or explicit if you want to call it that. The soft version is for some reason longer (no pun intended) than the other version. I didn't do a frame by frame comparison or looked for it on any site, because I wasn't really interested in that.

Having said that, the movie is a classic story (sex scenes left out of that equation) of a village girl dreaming big (again no pun) and going out to the big world. In this case the very beautiful (and blonde) main character can not convince her friend to follow her, but her encounters are plentiful. This is above average, with or without actual penetration, but the story itself still is not that revealing or great to get too excited about ... worth a look for curious persons and there is always the fast forward button for the scenes you want to leave out
