Fucking Mystic Review

The cover of the film Fucking Mystic, with a waist high photo of Chelsea Poe.I don’t know how or why my obsession with Chelsea Poe began, but almost everyone who knows I watch porn knows that she is my favourite performer. Not only is she incredibly attractive, but she also seems to really earnestly enjoy other people’s pleasure when she’s having sex with them. She is supremely talented, and has received deserved recognition for that. Fucking Mystic really shows her versatility, from vanilla scenes to submission to domination. The vague plot is that Chelsea has moved to the Bay Area, and that before she left, her girlfriend gave her a talisman that makes people really, really want to have sex with her. Some people might be uncomfortable with the way this could possibly be seen as non-consent, but I think the enthusiasm of the performers cuts through that. The plot is simple and not distracting from the main game, but there’s definite continuity of the plot through the scenes. This film has five scenes, but I feel like it’s more like four and a half. I don’t like every scene, but the ones that I do, I like a lot. Fucking Mystic is a really important film for me, because it really shaped my understanding of sexuality. It was the first time I had ever seen ball gags, fisting and squirting in porn, and these are all my favourite things to see in porn and in my real life sex life. Fucking Mystic is a whole hour long, was produced by Trouble Films in 2014, and directed by Courtney Trouble.

Scene 1: Chelsea Poe & Sandy Bottoms

A still from the first scene of Fucking Mystic, with Chelsea Poe and Sandy bottoms lying in bed together.

There’s no real lead in to this scene, other than a few stills of a window and a cat, but this isn’t jarring, as there is a slow build up before any sex happens. This is meant to be an early morning sex scene before Chelsea leaves to go to Oakland. The lighting makes this really convincing, with a natural, soft tone. The close ups of Sandy and Chelsea’s faces and body parts make it feel really intimate and tender. I really like Chelsea’s short snippets of dialogue in any scene she’s in, and this one is no different. The first thing you hear her say is a cheery “Good morning, you’re so cute when you cum!” There’s also good communication that continues throughout the film, especially when someone is fingering Chelsea and she tells them how many fingers to use. This is a nice bit of realism that usually gets edited out of mainstream porn. I have a few minor gripes, but they are very minor. Occasionally the camera will go in and out of focus, a problem that I have noticed in a lot of indie porn, but it’s not as distracting as in other films. There are also a few times when sound from one scene bleeds into the other, but it’s obvious that this is deliberate. It might not be distracting for you if you aren’t literally psychotic and hear voices that aren’t there on the daily, but I really really hate this in any kind of media. Also, I feel like Sandy said “fuck me like that” enough times that it stopped feeling like a heat-of-the-moment direction and more like a scripted line. There is nothing especially unique about this scene in my opinion, but if it’s trying to show comfortable, affectionate sex, it does that well. It’s the kind of scene I would recommend to someone just dipping their toes into queer porn, rather than drop them in the deep end of the squirt-pool.

Scene 2: Chelsea Poe & Courtney Trouble

A still from Fucking Mystic, where Courtney Trouble is uncuffing Chelsea Poe from a St Andrew's cross, while kissing.

Chelsea arrives in Oakland, meets her new roommate who is definitely a cameo from an important porn performer (possibly Kitty Stryker?) who I cannot recognise, and then Chelsea needs “to go get some fucking groceries”. These groceries involve a LOT of bacon, a jawbreaker gag, and a lovely femme dom Courtney Trouble. Cut to Courtney’s place, where Chelsea is cuffed to a St. Andrew’s Cross. This lead me to question if my bondage proclivities came from childhood exposure to paintings of Catholic martyrs tied to trees. This scene is incredibly hot. Courtney rips Chelsea’s underwear to shreds, Chelsea gets saliva absolutely all over herself, and Courtney goes down on her without so much as smudging her perfect red lipstick. There is fisting and squirting and Courtney Trouble’s signature giggle, all of which make for a very enjoyable scene. The only thing I didn’t like about this scene is that it felt short. Not in a “I liked this and wish it had gone on for longer” kind of way, but I felt that a lot of the build up was cut out of the scene. There was a lot of (very enjoyable) time spent on Courtney going down on Chelsea, but it seemed like there was not as much time and importance given to Courtney being fingered/fisted.

Scene 3: Chelsea Poe & Daisy Ducati

A still from Fucking Mystic, where Chelsea Poe throws Daisy Ducati onto a bare mattress, bathed in pink light. Daisy's head and torso are in shot, but only Chelsea's torso and arms visible.

This is my absolute favourite scene in the whole film. That’s not to say that the previous scene isn’t a close second, but this scene hits more of my switches. (Switches, geddit?) Namely, strap on sex. It just starts out fantastically, with Chelsea marching into the Feelmore Adult Gallery in a “Kill Me” shirt. Daisy Ducati has a really expressive face and I especially love the enthusiastic “fuck yeah” she gives when Chelsea asks if she wants to fuck. The end up in someone’s bedroom, which consists of a clothes-covered floor, a bare mattress and harsh pink light. This feels really dirty and rough from the beginning, and the rest of the scene doesn’t disappoint. At first, the angled shot and the moving camera made me a little dizzy, but this seems to even out as the scene progresses. There are so many things to like about this scene: the rope harness that Chelsea uses to yank Daisy around with, Chelsea wearing an Aslan Leather Jaguar harness to fuck Daisy with the longest dildo I have ever seen, more clothes ripping, and Chelsea commanding Daisy to keep her attention focused solely on her. The synopsis of this film says that Chelsea is a “bratty” top in this scene, and I really appreciate the self-confidence and energy it takes to pull that off. It’s obvious that these performers are incredibly physically talented as well, and Daisy seems to constantly be stretching her legs at difficult angles, which makes this scene even more impressive. Yet again this scene had a minor audio issue, where there was a disconnect between the sound and the words Chelsea’s lips were forming on screen. Also, I was disappointed with the extended close up shot of Daisy being fucked when it was obvious that Chelsea was fucking Daisy’s throat with her fingers, which would have been much more interesting to watch in my opinion. Plus, I was a little let down that Daisy bought a ball gag earlier in the scene but it never got to be used. There was just some incredible chemistry in this scene and the artistic choices really enhanced the mood of it all. I love a scene where I can appreciate the physical abilities of the performers while still being very turned on.

Scene 4: Chelsea Poe & Ruckus & Nefarious

A still from Fucking Mystic. Chelsea Poe is lying on a couch. The text over the top is an IM conversation. It reads "ChelseaPoe666: wanna listen to some records and makeout?" "RuckusXXX: sure, that sounds fucking great!" "B_Nefarious: yeahhhhh c u later bb."

When talking about Fucking Mystic with friends, regardless of whether they have watched it or if I am trying to convince them that they need to, I almost always forget about this scene. It’s at best boring, and, at worst, physically painful to watch. If you are into serious tattoos, or just really want to see two cis dudes get it on, you might like this scene, but I felt pretty let down with this one. The worst part is the visual effect which continues throughout the whole scene, which is kind of like a 3D effect, except instead of a blue and red overlay, it is a yellow and green overlay. The colour choice feels really appropriate for the scene, and they use the exact shade of lime green that my punkiest friend has for his spacers. However, it really hurts my eyes, and if I have even the inkling of a headache, this scene is guaranteed to bring it on full force. If I can get over that, though, then I can sit through the rest of the scene, but even then it isn’t anything to write home about. Both Ruckus and Nefarious are very quiet, and hardly ever moan unless they’re cumming. This is disappointing – if I wanted to watch silent dudes, I’d stick with mainstream porn. They also don’t have very expressive faces, almost like they don’t care about what they’re doing. Chelsea has an incredibly enthusiastic face when she’s performing, but you rarely get to see any of that. There are some nice shots of her ass and her face when Ruckus and Nefarious cum on her tits though, but those moments don’t redeem this scene for me.

Scene 4.5: Orgy

Andre Shakti, Lyric Seal, Chelsea Poe, and Kitty Stryker walk (and wheel) down a street.

The beginning of this scene is super grungy and I am so into it. Also, there’s a fun little plot point where Chelsea drops the amulet thing and it’s revealed that actually, it’s not magic, she is just irresistible to the people of Oakland. This orgy is really diverse, and it’s fun to see who you can recognise from just a few seconds of screen time. I recognised Chelsea Poe, Lyric Seal, James Darling (in his really cute chest harness), Jiz Lee, Rameses Rodstein, Cinnamon Maxxine, and Cyn. Other performers in the scene are Ivy Dykes, Jeze Bell, Indigo, April Flores, Betty Blac, Juba, Vivenne Dawn, Nefarious, Kitty Stryker, and Andre Shakti. The reason I only count this as half a scene is that every shot has another shot over the top, so you have to look through an entirely different scene to see the one you want to focus on. It’s hard to see what exactly is happening, and the shots are often cut quite short. Obviously it’s hard to do in exactly the same way because this is much shorter, but I expected something more like Jiz Lee’s Dirty 30 Birthday Orgy. However, you can still hear a lot of slapping and moaning, and the music is really well selected, so it is still pretty sexy. The scene ends with Rameses Rodstein sucking on Chelsea’s tits and Andre Shakti fucking Chelsea until she cums.

I really love Fucking Mystic. I think it really ties together well as a film, and Chelsea Poe gets to show off her incredible talent. It’s a good sampling platter, especially when it comes to BDSM stuff. If you’re not quite sure what kind of porn you prefer, but you know you like rough sex and dominance, this film has a lot to offer. Even though I’m not 100% on two of the scenes in this film, I adore everything else, and think it’s well worth the price.
