Simulated or Real?
27 November 2005 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Of all the erotic films I've directed I'd have to say that "The Key to Sex" is one of my favorites. I had a gorgeous and talented cast starring; Maria Ford, Scott Carson, Jennie Millar, Monique Parent and Jacqueline Lovell. I got a clever and funny script from Chris Byrne, beautiful photography from Harris Done and a great musical score from Carl Schurtz. Plus I got tremendous producing support from Bill Burke and Eddie Holzman. All of us worked hard to make this an entertaining, funny and erotic film. And in my opinion, it is one of the best low budget erotic films out there.

I've been reading the IMDb comments and it seems a lot of people have enjoyed the film. As the director, I'm very pleased that so many people have a positive response to it.

There is one comment; however, that I'd like to clarify. It is the comment by some reviewers that the sex scenes are real. I'm referring specifically to the lesbian scene between Maria Ford and Amber Herrel that took place out by the pool. As with all of the erotic films I've directed or produced, none of the sex scenes are real. They're simulated! I just think it says a lot about Maria Ford's acting ability that so many people think she's really having sex. She's incredible talented and always delivers 100% in every scene she's in; whether it be comedic, dramatic or romantic. I'm sorry to disappoint those reviews who think she's really doing it, but guys, it's called "Acting".
