“Getting Off with Monique” is a very good production from B. Skow and Vivid that features former contract performer, Monique Alexander, in half of its four scenes. The general theme for this movie revolves around the actresses getting themselves, their partners, and the viewer off—hence, the title. Along these lines, the boy-girl sequences all start off with the relevant female performer doing some sexy posing, stripping, teasing, talking to the camera, and / or masturbating to try to both work the viewer up and also include him (or her) in the segment that is to follow. For the one girl-girl scene, the ladies strip down together prior to the action, and there is still plenty of speaking directly to the camera on their parts. Typically, this all works to good effect and adds to the overall production.
In terms of the sex, Scene One features Monique Alexander getting it on with Marco Banderas in a bedroom with a circular, brown bed and a dark, furry carpet. The 69 and oral action here are highlights, as are the cowgirl and missionary-like positionings. The pop-shot is delivered to Monique’s breasts and chest to close out this very good encounter. Scene Two brings together Renae Cruz—who starts out in some sexy, crotchless leopard-print lingerie—with ubiquitous European actor, Jerry, in a room with a white leather sectional sofa. The blowjob work in this excellent sequence includes some face-fucking, semi-gagging, and spit, while the missionary-like, doggie-style, and cowgirl fucking is all top-notch. A cum-shot to Renae’s face, mouth, chest, and hair—followed up by some oral cock clean-off—closes out this steamy romp.
In Scene Three, Maya Gates takes on Mick Blue in the film’s final boy-girl segment and also its only anal sequence. During the warm-up tease material, Maya does some anal fingering, and Mick continues with the ass-centric theme by administering some hot rimming at various points throughout the scene. The festivities take place inside on a dark blue sofa by a fireplace in a marble-tiled room and include some hot doggie-style, reverse-cowgirl, and multiple positions of anal sex amongst their highlights. There’s even some ass-to-mouth in this very good segment, which ultimately finishes off with a facial for Maya and some oral cock clean-off—hot stuff! A good girl-girl encounter is brought in to close out the disc, with Monique Alexander getting it on with Carmen McCarthy (Scene Four). This one is fairly hot and sensual, though it involves relatively standard girl-girl fare—fingers, tongues, and the ladies using a couple of vibrators on one another. A side-by-side vibrator masturbate-a-thon caps this one off. It’s good but not great.
Some other items should also be mentioned. Advertisements play when the disc is inserted, but these can be skipped by hitting the “Menu” button on the remote. The Vivid website watermark is still present in this production at the bottom of the screen. As always, this doesn’t make much of a difference due to its tiny size, though it would be better if it were absent. As a note, the film clocks in at around the 2.5 hour mark—which is a nice length. Finally, it should be noted that the settings for the action are realistic, and the camerawork and production values are quite good.
In terms of bonus materials and other options, there is some nice extra material presented here. One finds a “Photo Gallery”—which puts forth a slideshow of “pretty-girl” shots and stills from the production—as well as a “Previews” section—which gives a choice of four Vivid trailers. Also present are a “Vivid Extras” option—which plays through various Vivid-related advertisements and an anti-piracy public service announcement—and a “Behind the Scenes” featurette that is about 27 minutes long and is fun and interesting. Finally, there is a “Bonus Scene”—a boy/boy/girl, interracial sequence featuring Monique Alexander (from “Monique’s Been Blackmaled”). This is a nice bonus.
Overall, this disc is very good and features one of the best of Vivid’s former contract performers—Monique Alexander. The three boy-girl encounters range from very good to excellent, and the girl-girl segment is no slouch, either. For fans of Monique, Vivid, B. Skow, and one-on-one sex, I would recommend this title.
