Carla runs a whorehouse and she's afraid that a bad, bad man named Howie Mann is going to move in on it and take it over for himself. So what does Carla do? She hires a private detective named Mark Lowe (John Leslie) to watch over the joint and make sure that Howie doesn't pull any fast ones on them.
While Carla intends for Mark's relationships with the employees in her house of ill repute to be purely professional, what with this being a porno film and all, well let's just say that it doesn't quite work out that way.
Scene 1 –:A lucky employee of the whorehouse played by Joey Silvera lets Kristera Barrington sit on his face and wiggle while Pattie Petite goes to town with her mouth on his member. Eventually he bends Pattie over the desk and pounds away at her while Kristera and her swap spit. After a few minutes of that Billy has the girls switch spots, until he's ready to come, which he does all over the two lovely ladies.
Scene 2 –: Little Oral Annie and a few other working girls are giving multiple blowjobs to multiple patrons of the house in this quick scene that ends in much facial splattering.

Scene 3 – : John Leslie and a lingerie clad Gina Carrera let their professional relationship take a different turn. He fingers her and then lays her atop the bed, going at her with her legs behind her head for a few minutes. She gets on top and rides him until he's ready to unload, then she sucks him off and lets him spooge all over her boobies. A few minutes later, while he's in the tub cleaning off, she comes back for more and hops in the bath with him to give him a quick follow up suck job.
Scene 4 – : Seka and a lovely lady friend put on a show for the foreign TV repairman who has shown up to fix their unit. They begin by kissing and licking each other and then it quickly evolves into a full on rug munching session between the two of them. As their temperatures rise, they call over our intrepid repairman to take care of business for them and he proves quite capable as Seka mounts him while her friend tongue bathes the action area, holding everything open for the camera.
Scene 5 – : Gina Carrera gets double teamed by a pair of customers. She starts by blowing them at the same time, cramming her mouth with two cocks at once while the boys finger her. Then the pair takes turns banging her while the other strokes himself. Eventually she wants it up the ass and they're only too happy to oblige her, after which she has them both withdraw and then jack off all over her face.
Scene 6 – : Little Oral Annie and a bearded mystery man show that bananas are good for more than just eating when he probes her with one in the kitchen. This leads to a little pussy eating, then he puts her on the counter, pounds away at her missionary style, then pulls out and shoots on her belly.
Scene 7 - :Billy Dee and Vanessa Del Rio are getting it on in the office. He eats her clit and thumbs her ass then she blows him and her favorite strap on (which she's had him put on) at the same time. He puts both tools to use and fills her pussy with his dick and the plastic penis simultaneously. He pounds away at her then reaches the breaking point, pulls out and shoots on her tits.
Scene 8 - : The final scene finds Little Oral Annie showing John Leslie how she got her name. The two sixty-nine for a while, and then he winds up dead! Telling you anymore would ruin the ending of the film, so I'll leave it at that.
Beyond Desire was shot on film so it has a reasonable high level of detail in it. Some of the scenes aren't lit so well and so they look a little dark but other than that, the movie looks pretty decent. Skin tones look pretty lifelike and while there is some mild print damage evident from time to time none of it is too severe.
The Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack has both an English and Spanish language option. Dialogue is fine but there is some hiss on the track and the obviously low budget conditions under which the film was shot are audible in the mix. You can understand what's being said easily enough though and the levels are mixed and balanced properly. John Power's goofy score comes through nice and clear.
Extras on this release include a photo gallery consisting of fourteen images from the film, cast credits, an advertisement for three other VCD Classics titles, an internet link, and contact information for VCA.
While Beyond Desire isn't on par with some of the other XXX detective stories that came out of the era, the great cast and bad puns more than make the movie worth a look for fans of classic smut cinema. Recommended.
