Satisfaction Series 1 to 3
BOX SET

Ever wanted to know what goes on behind the closed doors of a high class brothel? Well look no further because Roadshow have released the entire three series of Satisfaction on DVD in one fantastic box set. Featuring a bevy of amazing Australian actresses, Satisfaction takes viewers inside 232, a high class brothel in Melbourne.

Whether there is any truth behind the stories, it will probably never be revealed but certain scenes of the series were actually filmed in one of the "up-market" brothels in Melbourne to assist with the realism. Imagine Sex in the City meets Hung meets Californication and that's the amalgam of stories you'll get in Satisfaction but unlike their American counterparts, it is somehow easier to relate to these stories and characters.

The story of Satisfaction revolves around a group of high class courtesans or more specifically, women who sell their bodies to men. Of course with the "sex" word a main theme in his series, there is quite a bit of nudity and simulated sex scenes as the actresses are scantily dressed in the world's best lingerie as they attempt to satisfy their clients.

The drama of Satisfaction is quite engaging and it's not all about sex, sex and more sex, even though it's a common theme. These women also have their own lives as they attempt to juggle their time in the sex industry with an attempt to live an everyday life. With their upper class of clientele, to some extent, this series does glamorise the sex industry but their are enough stories in this series to really raise your eyebrow to the darker side.

In the three seasons of Satisfaction, we have seen quite a few of the escorts come and go but the main stayers are Natalie (Kestie Morassi), Mel (Madeline West) and Lauren (Alison Whyte) which the series revolves around. As they fall for clients, becoming counsellors for both themselves and their clients plus dodge the bullets in the sex industry, it's quite warming to watch these characters grow.

Whether it's the girls keeping the secret from their friends or family or getting involved with celebrities and politicians, there are at times a tinge of comedy and wit which will keep you yearning for more. My favourite season was the third season which saw two new working girls come into the mix, such as Amy (Camille Keenan), a university student who crosses the boundaries of what is acceptable behaviour in this high class brothel. It's these unusual stories and history of the characters that makes Satisfaction such as "satisfying" experience. Just be warned that some of the scenes can be quite explicit and then other scenes are quite comedic with the stranger clientele.

The video and audio quality of Satisfaction is perfect and looks amazing on DVD with vibrant colours, sharp images and image clarity to die for. Add in Dolby Digital 5.1 and you have a well made drama series. There's a bevy of extras to help round out this wonderful presentation. What Satisfaction does is give the viewer a snapshot into the lives of the women who work in this industry and best of all, it's quite down to Earth. It may be shocking but it's great Australian drama!
