Dry Martina—Shayne’s Sexy Movie Recs

by | Aug 23, 2022 | Movies

This erotic movie from South America is about a woman’s sexual journey and return home.

Netflix synopsis:

An odd encounter with a fan and a tryst with that fan’s ex-boyfriend leads a sexually adventurous singer on an escapade in Chile.


Let’s get a couple things out of the way:

It’s a Spanish language movie. I watched it in Spanish with English subtitles. (There’s also the option to watch it dubbed in English.) There were a few times I had to rewind because the dialogue and the subtitles were going by at lightning speed but it’s worth it to catch everything. 

This movie is not a romance. By that I mean that there’s no emotionally satisfying coupling at the end of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed it anyway because it’s a woman’s sexual journey story. It’s centered on a woman going on an adventure, led by her libido. There just aren’t enough of those movies in my opinion. And I’m here for it.

I appreciated the depiction of the visceral nature of a woman’s arousal and how the story honors a woman’s need to be genuinely turned on. 

There’s a scene where Martina says, “I trust my vagina’s natural reactions. I’ve always been loyal to her.“

Talk about an announcement of the protagonist’s decision to enter the extraordinary world. I was like yes! I’m ready for this ride. 🙂

I enjoyed the comedic, human elements of the story. Her only confidant is her comatose father. She’s fiercely devoted to her cat. I’m an animal lover so that sealed my bond to the main character. 

Martina’s an active protagonist, with a strong sexual appetite. She loves sex, she loves love. She reminds me of my protagonist in my Reveal Me series. Martina actively pursues pleasure with wild abandon. She’s not punished for it. She does find, sadly, that too many men are intimidated by, downright scared of, sexually unrestrained women. It reminded me of the book Fear of Flying, also a female-led erotic journey that deals with the f-d up sexual politics between men and women.

If you’re looking for lust to love, this isn’t it. If you’re looking to follow a sexually free woman on an adventure that includes hot sex, nightclub dancing, smoky torch songs, hijinks, female bonding, and found family, then check out Dirty Martina.
