Since this is a double feature, and each side of the DVD is treated like its own DVD, Iím reviewing them as such.
Fresh, Sweet, and Natural
Running Time: 83 min.
Production Date: 11 / 20 / 2001
Director: Luc Wylder

Initial Expectations: Iíve had mixed luck out of Fallen Angel, so Iím keeping my mind open.
Initial Reaction: It beats getting hit by a truck.
Who Should Watch It : Insomniacs
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting complete sex scenes, high technical aspects, or anything close to the average porno
Audio /Video Quality: The audio varies quite a bit. In some places itís very poorly balanced, and in others itís balanced very nice. The video ranges from very clear to very grainy, and has quite a bit of soft focus problems.
Music: The music comes and goes. Some scenes have no music, and some have music thatís nicely balanced.
Disc Problems / Complaints: The authoring is pretty shoddy. Thereís no time stamp, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. I like to have an idea of how long a feature is and to be able to jump around throughout the movie or to a particular point in the movie. Without a time stamp, I canít do this.
Menus: The main menu is very simple and doesnít even have any real animation. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene by a small clip of the scene. Neither of them are that impressive.
The Feature: Fresh, Sweet, and Natural collects sixteen unrelated scenes. Each scene has a title screen with a name for the scene, but the performers arenít ever identified.
Alexandra Silk and Shaena Steel start things off in Southside Sexpots. Alexandra fucks Shaena with a purple double dildo before getting on the other end for a few pumps. The scene has some very good chemistry and a natural feel, but the heat lacks quite a bit. It also feels like thereís quite a bit more here.
Afternoon Delight has Charlene Aspen getting a quickie from Ronnie Cox. She gives him a blowjob with some decent eyes before hoping on to ride him reverse cowgirl. Ronnie doesnít last too long and pops on Charleneís bush, but goes back for a few more pumps. Once again thereís some good chemistry, which is to be expected since at least back then I think they were married, but the heat is only average.
Alexandra Silk joins a couple in Three-way Antics. Iím not really sure what the antics were, since Alexandra watches them fuck and then takes it in the ass. The girls share a facial to end things, in a very nice feeling scene. Thereís some very good chemistry and some decent energy as well.
Careena Ann plays with another implanted chick in Meadows of Lust. They work each other over with a double dildo before Careena takes a little ass play and a double penetration with the toys. Itís a good start, but feels like thereís a lot to go.
In Pump and Grind Ariana joins Chuck Martino and a chick. Chuck fucks the chick doggie style and then lets Ariana help suck him to an impressive shared facial. Itís an okay scene, but focused way too much on close-ups.
Four on the Floor puts Ariana with three other people. Luc joins in, and the scene ends almost immediately after one of the guys pop. Itís a very okay scene that is even better if skipped.
Anal Injection features Tom Byron probing a chick. She starts out sucking Tomís cock and rimming him before they go directly to the anal. Tom and the chick work through a couple positions before he pops on her butt. Itís a good scene with some decent enthusiasm, but the camera really holds it back.
Kyle Stone nails Shay Sweet as well as another girl in Shayís First Time. Kyle starts with the other girl, then fucks Shay while fingering her ass. The girls share a facial to end things in this decent scene.
Ariana and another chick take on an unnamed guy in Bedroom Sex Romp. Ariana starts out muff munching on the other chick and then lets the guy fuck her from behind. She finally takes her turn and lets the other have the facial. Itís another fairly forgettable scene.
Rowan and Luc Wylder start out Terrace of Sex fucking on the balcony. They head inside for Luc to fuck her ass and finish things with a good facial. Itís a good scene with some nice chemistry and obvious enjoyment between the performers.
Double Header Time puts a couple winning things together. You have Gina Ryder together with some toys, and throw in another chick for her to play with. Sadly, itís an okay at best scene.
Rod Fontana makes an appearance in Backdoor Lust with an unnamed girl. He fucks her ass in a couple positions before decorating her face. Itís an okay scene with good chemistry.
A chick joins Angelica Sin and Rich Handsome for Pumpiní and Bumpiní. Rich fucks Angelica missionary style before the girls grind their clits together. The girls then team up to suck Rich all over their faces. Itís a good scene, mostly due to the great chemistry between Rich and Angelica.
Toys & Tongues puts two girls together by a pool to play with each other. They lick and play with a vibe before going inside for more, at which point the scene ends. Needless to say, this kind of ending pretty much killed the scene for me.
Grindiní and Windin; puts Michael Raven in front of the camera with then-wife Sydnee Steele. This is one of those rare instances Raven mentioned in my interview with him when he got in front of the camera without his clothes. Sydnee starts him off with a great facial before having him ream her rear and pop on her face. She even swallows a bit down. Itís a very good scene with great chemistry, and one of the best in the feature.
Finally, John Decker, Inari Vachs, and an unnamed chick finish things up with DP in the Den. Itís a very okay scene, and the DP is only a technical one since itís a cock and a toy.
Fresh, Sweet, and Natural was an almost complete disappointment. I was wide awake when I started, and by the end I was so bored I could barely keep my eyes open. The only reason I probably stayed awake through all of it was that I kept moving by checking my watch to see how much time had passed. The camera work almost always felt extremely limited, and I almost always wanted to see something else then what was being shown. The really sad thing is that many of the scenes felt like there was a good thing there. Many of them had great chemistry, but felt completely held back by the camera. Fresh, Sweet, and Natural might be natural, but it doesnít feel too fresh and thereís very little sweet about it.
Extras: The photo gallery lasts about three minutes with four seconds per full screen photo or snapshot. Trailers are included for Sex Across America: 1st Stop Las Vegas, Sex Across America Second Stop: New Orleans, Sex Across America Third Stop: San Francisco, Amateur Angels 1, and Forbidden Desires. Finally, thereís cumshot recaps and internet information.
Themes: Straight, lesbian, toys, group, anal, DP (toy), rimming (female > male), spanking, swallowing, and masturbation
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: This is basically a waste of DVD. The sex is lackluster and the transfer about as lackluster. Even the extras arenít up to average standards.
Note to Fallen Angel: I really donít know where to start on this one. Iíll stop by suggesting you put a little overall care into your DVDs to bring them up to the average quality of other companies so I donít go on too long.Overall - 1.5
Running Time: 115 min.
Production Date: 11 / 20 / 2001
Director: Luc Wylder
Initial Expectations: Iíve had mixed luck with Luc Wylderís features, but the cast in this one is giving me some hope.
Initial Reaction: Itís nice and fun.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody looking for more realistic sex but with stars they recognize
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for nasty sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear but occasionally off balance. The video is very clear with few shadows or soft focus problems.
Music: The music mixes some harder rock and typical porn music. It ranges from a decent balance to being a little on the loud side.
Menus: The menus are simple, but have a fun feel. The chapter menu lets you choose the scene by a small clip of the scene.
The Feature: Luc Wylder often makes his features with more of a common theme than a plot. This time around itís the internet. According to Luc, who introduces each scene, everybody in the feature e-mailed him with their porn fantasies, and he helped to make them come true. Iím not quite sure about this, since most of the scenes are obviously a few years old, but itís a nice idea and presented very well.
Julie Meadows, a cute blonde who still had her real breasts when this scene was shot, starts things off with Alex Sanders, who I think had some of his original hair from when he was born still on his head. Julie starts off giving him a blowjob with the great smile and eyes that first made me notice her before she lets Alex tongue her twat and ass as he pulls her shorts aside. Alex, apparently without the common porn star superpower of making condoms magically appear, sheathes his sword. He starts off fucking Julie missionary style before they strip all the way down and continue with a couple more common positions. Julie ends things taking a very good pop on her ass, which seems like kind of a natural feel. Alex and Julie give the feature a great start. Theyíve got great chemistry and enthusiasm, and it comes out with a lot of energy. Scenes like this are why I took such quick notice of Julie when I first saw her.
Kasorn Swan, a half black half Oriental cutie, visits Marc Anthony while still wearing her angel wings. She descends a staircase to suck Marcís cock, and then lets him return the oral favor. They work through many of the standard positions, such as the must have reverse cowgirl, before Marc decorates her tits. Itís a good scene, but Iíve rarely been overly impressed with Kasorn. She does a good job, but itís never been so amazing that Iíve felt like looking for more of her.
Tina Thomas and Alexandra Silk, both extremely cute brunettes, get busy in the third scene. Tina starts the munch-fest on Alexandra naturally before they move on to toys to further pleasure her. Alexandra returns the favor in kind, first with fingers and then with toys when Tina asks her to. They look like theyíre going to end things with some nice kissing, but rather than stopping, Tina grabs a DP toy to pleasure Alexandra even more. After making sure Alexandra and both her holes are fully satisfied, Tina and Alex go back to kissing, and end things for real. This is another very good scene. Thereís great chemistry and some nice energy. The toy usage is also nicely balanced, so that fans of both styles should be able to appreciate the scene.
Natasha Blake and her suitcase pimp Geiger, both of whom have a ton of tattoos, team up for the next scene. Geiger starts out warming up both of Natashaís holes with his tongue and fingers, and actually makes sure she has a good orgasm (which obviously isnít faked) before they move on. Natasha thanks Geiger properly with a slow blowjob with great eyes before they start fucking doggie style. They work through a few more common positions, with Geiger fingering Natashaís ass for part of it. Geiger finish this hot scene off with a decent pop on Natashaís stomach. As it should be, thereís some decent chemistry between Geiger and Natasha, and although I wasnít originally impressed with her looks, I ended up very impressed with Natasha by the end of the scene. She has a nice feeling of reality to her, and obviously loves to fuck.
Finally, Chris Cannon bangs Cheyenne Silver, a gorgeous girl next door type brunette. They start things out giving a short interview and kissing and playing back and forth. Chris eventually plays the gentleman and starts eating Cheyenne out, only stopping when Cheyenne asks ďWhy donít you put your cock between my lips?Ē and a few seconds later adds ďThatís not a request, itís a demand!Ē. The entire scene continued with this kind of fun spirit, starting with Cheyenneís blowjob and continuing through most of the common positions. Cheyenne adds a little anal to the mix by fingering her ass as Chris fucks her and later having him fuck her ass with the dildo as he fucks her pussy with his cock. Chris finally ends the scene decorating Cheyenneís back and ass, and I have to admit that I was disappointed to see it end. Chris and Cheyenne had such great chemistry and enthusiasm that this easily became my favorite scene. How could it not? It has such real energy, and is filled with two people who are obviously having the time of their lives fucking each other. This is what porn should be like!
Nymphos.cum is a very enjoyable fuck flick. Luc makes a great host, and shows why heís often referred to as one of the nicest guys in porn. Heís very gracious, and never feels like heís trying to hog the attention. He does a great job of giving the entire feature a very realistic feel and showing that the people are really having fun. It ends up giving the entire feature a feel thatís halfway between home video and the standard studio porn, and showing the best of both of them. The only complaint I have about the scenes is that they feel a little limited at times. The camera seems to take a long time with each shot, and thereís not a lot of editing them together. This holds back the scenes a little at times, but the overall feel worked so well that I forgot about the limited editing almost as soon as the feature stopped, while the overall feel stuck with me. Nymphos.cum is a great alternative to the business as usual porn thatís everywhere else.
Extras: Fairly average bios are included for Cheyenne Silver, Alexandra Silk, Julie Meadows, Kasorn Swan, Natasha Blake, and Tina Thomas. Trailers are included for Internal Affairs, Silk Ties , and Dirty Dancers 13. The ďSilk ShotĒ option gives you the chance to jump directly to the pop shot at several points throughout the scenes, but unfortunately the icon cannot be turned off. The photo gallery contains thirty decent pictures, and thereís also the standard internet and phone sex information.
Themes: Straight, rimming (male > female), lesbian, inter-racial, toys, DP (toy), spanking, and anal (toy)
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Overall: Nymphos.cum is a fun fuck flick. It nicely blends a decent idea with a fun attitude and some good sex scenes. The transfer is pretty good, and there are also some pretty average extras.
Note to Fallen Angel: This is a huge improvement over some of your other DVDs. Itís great to see you including a time stamp, and I hope in the future youíll also give the viewer the ability to turn off the ďSilk ShotĒ icon.Overall - 3.5
