The Short Story
Initial Expectations: New Sensations' Romance line has been extremely impressive. I'm going into this one with high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It's another great addition to the Romance line that's well worth picking up.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting characters, story, and romance with their sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting anything as nasty as a facial
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are excellent. The audio is extremely well balanced and clear. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great. The camera work is smooth, the picture is clear, and the lighting is very well done. Dear Abby looks and sounds every bit as good if not better than some of the late night cable erotic fare.
Music: The music is very well done and well balanced with the rest of the audio. It has a perfect style for the feel of the movie, and knows when it can enhance the movie and when it's best to disappear.
Menus: The main menu nicely works together a still with a little animation for a nice first impression. The chapter menu shows some very good care, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and either a title for the scene or the name of the performers in the scene.
The FeatureAlthough Giovanni might be a highly thought of as a romantic advice columnist, he might not have the following he does if they knew when he was really like. He shares a house with his ex, has slept with most of his office, and claims to be a “realist” when it comes to love knowing just how bad it can get. Still he has guys like Michael who can't help but rely on him to help them out with girls like his intern Zoe, and he just can't give up hope with his ex and roommate Natasha.
|Scene 1 – Ash Hollywood and Xander Corvus|
When bottle blonde Ash thinks she and hubby Xavier are in a rut, she takes a little advice and initiates a little morning sex wearing a baby blue bra and panties while Xander washes up. They quickly head to bed where he worships her feet before moving in to eat her pussy. Ash rolls him to his back to kiss him and strip him down before kissing his way across his chest and stomach to start sucking his cock. She mixes things up a bit covering his eyes with his shirt and laying her string of pearls over his stomach before he strips her down and orally worships her from behind. Xander quickly goes from taking Ash from behind to spooning her, and when Ash gets on top for a cowgirl ride she mixes things up a little wrapping her pearls around Xander's wrists. She gets the table turned on her a little with her bra stuffed in her mouth as he fucks her missionary style, and finally gets a nice dose of dick droppings on her stomach as Xander pulls out.
This is a very nice opening scene. Ash looks great in her little underthings, and there's great chemistry between them. I love how they mixed things up a little with the shirt blindfold, pearl cuffs, and panties in the mouth with the scene being about spicing things up. This is a very good scene to open the movie with.
|Scene 2 – Alyssa Branch and Ramon Nomar|
Bottle blonde Alyssa swoops in to go after Natasha's date Ramon as soon as she's out of site. She takes him back to an unoccupied bedroom and starts stripping him down as he returns the favor and kisses his way around her nicely natural tits. Ramon lays back for Alyssa to kiss her way across his chest as she makes her way down to suck his cock before letting her lay back for him to eat her box and fuck it missionary style. He rolls around to spoon her before letting Alyssa get on top for a cowgirl ride. Alyssa also lets Ramon take her from behind before he pulls out to pop on her ass.
This is another well done scene. Alyssa plays up the slutty backstabbing friend quite well and does a great job taking on Ramon and his oversized cock. I would have liked them to kick up the nasty a little more with a facial, which would have fit her slutty personality, but this is still a hot and nicely done scene.
|Scene 3 – Zoe Voss and Michael Vegas|
When dorky Michael throws himself at stunning redhead Zoe, he's amazed when she kisses him and returns his feelings. They continue to kiss as she lays back on a desk and lets him strip her down to kiss her tits and eat her pussy. Zoe turns Michael around and strips him down to kiss her way across his chest as she works her way down to sucking his cock. Michael takes Zoe from behind over the desk before she rides him cowgirl style in the office chair. He also takes her missionary style on the desk before pulling out to pop on her stomach.
This is a great scene. Michael does a great job in his role as a dork in love, and I'm pretty sure you could put Zoe in a burlap sack and she'd look amazing. There's great chemistry between them once the fucking starts as well as a fantastic romantic feeling as Michael professes his love. This is an excellent scene.
|Scene 4 – Natasha Nice and Giovanni Francisco|
Finally Natasha and Giovanni hook up and quickly head to the bed. They kiss and grind against each other passionately before Giovanni gets Natasha out of her shirt to go after her big fat natural titties. He keeps moving down to eat her bald pussy before Natasha sucks his cock in reciprocation and moves around for a bit of sixty-nining. Natasha rides Giovanni cowgirl style before letting him spoon her and fuck her missionary style. They also get in a doggie style fuck before going back to missionary with Giovanni popping on Natasha's stomach.
This is a great final scene. Yes, it can seem a bit rushed, but so does the climax in so many of the mainstream romantic comedies. As always Natasha looks fantastic, and Giovanni does a nice job as well. There's great chemistry between them from start to finish, and once again the action is very well captured. This scene fits the movie very well.
Dear Abby is another great addition to New Sensations' Romance series. The story is romantic, very enjoyable, and every bit as solid as a lot of what you find on late night cable for erotica. For that matter, it's also as solid as the last few mainstream romantic comedies I watched. Giovanni Francisco and Natasha Nice do a very nice job in the leads, and Micheal Vegas and Zoe Voss are great in their supporting roles. The sex is every bit as solid as the story, and every scene is extremely well captured while fitting into the overall story very well. With the track record behind New Sensations' Romance series I can't help but to into each new release with high expectations, and once again they were not only easily met but exceeded with Dear Abby.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for eight other releases in the Romance line, but sadly there's not a menu or any way to easily choose which trailers you'd like to view. The photo gallery lasts about two and a quarter minutes. There's also a “Pick Your Pleasure” option, the option to watch the story portion of the movie only, internet and company information, and outtakes.
The outtakes last about two and a half minutes. You get plenty of flubbed lines and a bit of the cast messing around on the set. This is a nice little bonus that gives a touch of personality from the performers and a few chuckles.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many New Sensations DVDs can be found online for between about $16 and $25 with most stores offering them for under $20. As usual with New Sensations' Romance line, this one's well worth the money. The movie is very well done with a well done story as well as very nicely done sex. The technical aspects show plenty of care and there's also a bit of effort put into the extras. Make sure you check this one out.
Note to New Sensations: With releases as well done as this it's very easy to see why other studios are trying so hard to copy this line. Thanks for starting this trend.
