Aurora Snow is the cutest thing in porn right now, and she's so deliciously dirty that her films are immensely watchable. Team her up with a couple of other hot to troy Sin City girls and put them into a soap opera style story that forces the characters to explore their own sexuality and you've got a winner, especially when it has decent production values and nice camera work like Harlot does. The plot? Chris Cannon gets upset when he finds out his wife, Aurora Snow, is hanging out at a sex club, which explains her lack of enthusiasm in the bedroom with him. He calls in a psychic played by Brittney Skye who explains all of this to him, and he comes up with a plan to win her back and have some fun of his own.
Chapter 1 – Kimberly Kane: Her boss needs her to take some dick-tation, if you catch my drift and soon enough she's got his cock out and her skirt up. She rides him cowgirl style for a little while, and they actually carry on a legitimate conversation about his life. She tells him, while she's boffing him, about a psychic friend of hers who is a psychic detective who could help him out with his dilemma. She takes off her dress after the plot devices are dealt with and he reems her doggy-style. He flips her over on her back and bangs her missionary for a few minutes while she fingers her clit, and then he pulls out and grunts a lot until he shoots on her mound. Not a particularly hot scene, but one that does get a lot of the expository dialogue out of the way for the coming ones.
Chapter 2 – Aurora Snow, Holly Wellin: The adulterous Ms. Snow hops into bed with her husband assuming that he knows nothing of her extra marital affairs but once he's gone to bed she runs off with Ms. Wellin to go suck dick at the sex club she's frequenting. The two gals administer a double blowjob and then Aurora gets on all fours to take it from behind. After that it's Holly's turn to get banged, so she lays back and lets him at it. Once Holly's cum, he's back inside Aurora who grunts and groans and makes those really cool squeaky noises that she's so good at until the girls decide to double team him. Aurora sits on his face while Holly rides his dong, then he pulls out to shoot all over Holly's fine, fine boobies so that Aurora can like it all off of her. The two girls are obviously having a good time here, taking turns on the cock like two old pals who are perfectly comfortable doing what they're doing.

Chapter 3 – Kinzie: She starts the scene on all fours, being lead around by a leash like a dog. Her master spanks her ass (which is quite fantastic, I might add), while some onlookers gaze in wonderment at their activities. Soon he's got her on all fours and starts tonguing her portals of fun. After he's got her warmed up, it's time for doggy style high jinks, which she's only too happy to receive. After that she sucks his dick for a while, gagging on it and spitting on him as she does so. After a really long hummer he lays her on her back and bangs her the old school way. She flips him over and rides him from above, and then finally dismounts so that she can jerk him to a finish and smother her pretty little face in goop.
Chapter 4 – Brittney Skye: Brittney starts things off by sucking Chris Cannon's dick like a starving maniac. She deep throats him and gags on him and licks him all over, working him with her mouth and throat and hands all at the same time. He gets into it and soon she mounts him to ride him reverse cowgirl style. She bends over for doggy style action and then he pulls out to eat on pussy for a couple of minutes. He mounts her again, and pumps away at her until he can't take anymore at which point he unloads all over her face.
Chapter 5 – Aurora Snow: Blindfolded, Aurora takes on two guys who start things off by using ice cubes on her perky little breasts. One of them eats her while she blows the second, then soon she's giving them both super ultra aggressive head at the same time. She takes the blindfold off and gets down on all fours so that she can blow one of them while sucking off the other. After that she mounts one, and blows the other. Finally she lays down on a black fur rug while one man pounds her missionary style and she deep throats the other guys cock. The scene finishes like this when the two men pull out and cover her face in goop.
This shot on digital video production looks pretty clean presented here in a reasonably stable 1.85.1 anamorphic widescreen presentation. There is some mild edge enhancement in a couple of spots and a noticeable bit of mpeg compression evident in some of the darker colors and the blacks but other than that, there's not a lot to complain about. Skin tones look nice and natural, the compositions are dead on, and aside from the fact that this digital video production looks like a digital video production and as such suffers from the minor defects usually associated with the format, everything is coming up roses as far as the look of the film is concerned.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is quite sufficient. The dialogue comes through cleanly and clearly as do all of the moans and groans. The soundtrack is mixed in properly at a respectable level so as not to overshadow the speaking parts when they do occur. Bass response is nice and lively and overall, for a porno movie, this is a better than average effort. The audio does go out of synch in during the dialogue that occurs after the final sex scene, but it's only for a few seconds and odds are you won't make it to that point anyway.
First up is a full length commentary track with director James Avalon, joined by Richard Banks, the director of photography. The begin by explaining the genesis of the film's name and then dive right into some fun and interesting details about the various sex scenes in the film. The pair are interesting to listen to when they're talking, but there are a few periods of dead air that do drag this track down a little bit. These instances mostly occur in and around the sex scenes, so it might be intentional, but the reality of the situation is that this track really only adds up to about half the running time of the film itself.
A Behind The Scenes documentary features some backstage interviews with the cast (including Ms. Snow, who I want to come live with me forever and ever – has there ever been a cuter porn star than her???) and the crew as well as plenty of candid backstage footage of the girls posing for photo shoots and in action in front of the camera. A few clips from the film put this well edited segment into context, and at just under twelve minutes it runs long enough to be informative but no so long as to overstay its welcome.
Up next are on camera video interviews with all six of the girls involved in the film. While these might have been interesting, unfortunately the audio quality on them leaves a little to be desired as it sounds like they were just recorded live off the floor with a camcorder. The run in length from three to six minutes and each of the girls – Aurora Snow, Brittney Skye, Dillan Lauren, Holly Wellin, Kimberly Kane and Kinzie Kenner – gets a chance to talk about themselves and their work a little bit.
Rounding out the extra features is a pop-shot access option, biographies for all of the cast members in text format, three photo galleries (a glamour gallery, a hardcore gallery, and a behind the scenes gallery) that contain a wealth of photos from the movie, a company profile, a weblink, a phone sex advertisement, and trailers for Barely 18 #16, Digital Daydreams, Stalker, Dream Teens 2 and Undertow.
An interesting porno with a plot that combines a reasonably interesting story that examines some unique psychological aspects of sexuality in a roundabout way, with some truly steamy sex scenes. The more Aurora Snow in anyone's smut collection, the better I say. Good video quality, good audio quality, and way better than average extra features make Harlot highly recommended.
