  1. Jobsdone's rating of the film Tipping The Velvet

    Tipping the Velvet makes historic dramas fun, for me mainly because of the lesbian element. Tipping the Velvet tells the interesting life story of Nan King, from Oyster girl to rent boy to theatre star. More importantly, it has some really hot sex scenes.

  2. fleur de chair's rating of the film Tipping The Velvet

    It's got girls in suits, lesbians, Victoriana, vaudeville, decadent parties, kink, and an old-fashioned strap on. In other words, it should be AWESOME. Sadly, I can't sit through this without laughing. Even though the subject matter is dark, the writing is painfully twee and the acting is hammy and heavy-handed.
