Donkey Punch (2005 film)

Donkey Punch is a 2005 American pornographic film directed by Grip Johnson and starring Deja Dare, Rachel Luv, Alex Divine, and Haley Scott.[1] Synopsis Donkey Punch is divided into four scenes[1] that are each roughly thirty minutes in length and which consist of vaginal and anal intercourse,[1] as well as acts such as irrumatio, cunnilingus, anilingus, and penetration with fingers and toes. Throughout each sequence, the male performers slap, punch, gag, kick, stomp, strangle, yell at, pull the hair of, and spit on their female co-stars. The segments conclude with the actor ejaculating into the actress's anus as he repeatedly strikes the back of the woman's head (the eponymous "donkey punches"). The exception to this is the third scene, which ends prematurely due to Alex Devine forcing Steven French (who she had repeatedly requested remove his ring, and to not punch "the wrong side" of her head) to stop. This leads to a short intermission (shot by French) in which directors Grip and Cram Johnson mock Devin
