After his company received a whopping 30 nominations for the 2009 AVN Adult Movie Awards earlier this year, Vivid-Alt head and alt-porn auteur Eon McKai shot Content, his fifth directorial effort for the Vivid Entertainment imprint. During the making of the movie, McKai often deadpanned that "It's just content."

And yet Content is more than just paint-by-numbers gonzo pornography, as Fleshbot editor-in-chief Lux Alptraum described in her review yesterday: "Translation: this is just stripped down sex. There's no plot, there's no 'meaning,' there are no grand conceits (well, aside from the general conceit of this being a stripped down, bare bones, sex-only release, which is certainly played up knowingly). Granted, this is not just another gonzo release: Eon's signature style is ever present. Even when it's just 'content,' it's style Eon's content. So how does Eon's work [fare] when it's nothing but content? Quite well, actually. Eon elicits stellar performances from each and every cast member: from the almost-possessed Kimberly Kane, who shot Content after a month of no sex; to the playfully rough Madison Young and Dane Cross; to the top-notch final scene featuring Kitty 'Meow' McMuffin and Sherwood getting rough and nasty with each other... But unlike some releases, where this kind of affectation seems put on, a bit of a performance, most everything we see in Content feels extremely real."

So it was rather appropriate that Vivid-Alt returned late last month to Miss Kitty's Parlour, aka Dragonfly in Hollywood, for Content's release party, where in attendance were McKai and girlfriend Pixie Pearl as well as stars Kimberly Kane with Dennis McGrath and Coco Velvett. Also present were stars Charlotte Vale and Debbie Lynn, model Melodie Gore, director Dave Naz with fiancee (now wife) Ashley Blue, and photographers Gia Jordan (shooting for AVN), Rae Threat, and Dean MacKay.

Content is available now from Vivid-Alt.
