The Short Story
Initial Expectations: This series has been pretty good, and going with something this different I can't help but be a bit curious here.
Initial Reaction: It's a very nicely done instructional release.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody interested in tongue piercing
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting the subject to look hard and freaky
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are okay. The audio is free of background noises, but the balance varies a bit throughout the release and it's sometimes a little hard to understand. The video is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, and is okay. It's nicely lit, but has a touch of grain that's definitely noticeable.
Menus: The main menu is okay, and just gives a little background animation with the choices. The chapter menu Is very basic and lets you choose a scene based on a series of text choices.
The FeatureOSK Productions' instructional release go the hardcore route. In addition to having porn stars to talk about the subjects, there are hardcore demonstrations. Here the subject is tongue piercings.
|Scene 1 and Framework – Jennah Adams and Maxwell Schmart|
Jennah starts out talking with Maxwell about her piercing experiences in a kind of talk-show style environment complete with bad laugh track. She talks about the process about getting her tongue pierced and even shows off some of the equipment. After an interview between Lexi and Pierre, Jennah talks about why men should get tongue piercings as well and then lets Monika Maple demonstrate it. Jennah talks about fellatio with tongue piercings, and demonstrates on a banana before demonstrating on a real cock. Finally, they show an actual tongue piercing with Lexi's help.
This is a very nice framework for the release. Jennah and Maxwell look like they're having a lot of fun with the subject, and Jennah adds some nice eye candy as well. They keep most of their segments short, but normally add a bit to the release with each appearance. This is a very nice start to the movie as well as a nice framework as it goes on.
|Scene 2 – Lexi and Pierre Black|
Lexi, a nice looking black chick with a couple noticeable piercings, chats with Pierre, a well known piercer. He talks about when he grew interested with piercing, training, and the piercing sensation and what can affect it. He also talks about piercings he won't do as well as some of his most memorable piercing experiences and questions he's received in the past. Pierre even talks about things that can go wrong, why he thinks tongue piercings have become so popular lately, and care after tongue piercings. Finally, Lexi talks about going off to have her tongue pierced.
This is a very well done segment. Pierre comes across as being very knowledgeable and competent, and they cover a heck of a lot of information here. He covers the subject with a lot of ease, and makes it very easy to become comfortable with the subject. My only complaint here is that after Lexi talked a couple times about having him pierce her tongue, we never got to see it. This is a great interview that would have been even better with a demonstration, but thankfully it happens later in the movie to not leave the viewer feeling cheated of it.
|Scene 3 – Monika Maple and Caren Caan|
Monika covers the subject of pussy eating with a tongue piercing. After showing off her tongue piercing she talks about cunnilingus in general with the importance of communication and how to get things started. She talks about the differences between oral for men and women, taboos about eating pussy, and adapting to the tongue piercing. Finally she covers things you should look for during cunnilingus.
This is an okay segment. If you haven't watched instructional releases on cunnilingus before then this might be a worthwhile segment. For me, this segment seemed like it was there to stretch out the feature length as very little of it corresponded to tongue piercings. It lasted almost twenty minutes and could have easily been trimmed down to about five. It also didn't help that Monika looked a bit clueless and like she was reading off cue cards or other things stuck around the bed throughout the segment. This wouldn't be a bad segment in a general cunnilingus instructional release, but on a piercing release it had way too much information that didn't pertain to the subject.
|Scene 4 – Jennah Adams and Maxwell Schmart|
Jennah starts out running her hands around Maxwell's pants before pulling his cock out while talking about the importance of foreplay, why you should want to give oral pleasure, and the benefits and dangers of blowjobs with tongue piercings. Jennah talks about deep throating and other techniques for cocksucking, and finishes things up taking Maxwell's load over her tongue and hand before swallowing a little down.
This is another segment that felt like it was there to stretch out the release. Jennah gets into the cocksucking very well and looks like she's having a great time talking about it. She shows some nice techniques, but once again the tongue piercing portion is pretty minimal. This is a good segment, but it just doesn't pertain to the subject that much.
|Scene 5 – Lexi and Pierre Black; Lexi and Maxwell Schmart|
Lexi returns, this time to have Pierre give her the tongue piercing they earlier discussed. He double checks on the piercing she wanted and answers a couple questions. Pierre talks his way through the piercing fairly well, and goes over things to make sure to do and things to avoid after the piercing.
After she's done with the piercing, Lexi talks about the healing process, adjustments she had to make, and things she had difficulties with. She talks talks about what she likes sexually, liking sex rougher, and ways to spice things up. As Lexi talks, she gives Maxwell a blowjob and rides him cowgirl style. They mix in plenty of sixty-nining and a little of the rougher, deep throat action that Lexi talks about liking. Finally, Maxwell pops in her mouth with Lexi going after him with a bit more oral as they laugh.
This is a very well done segment. Pierre does a great job covering all the bases, and makes it look relatively painless. I also really liked Lexi's post-piercing talk, and putting it with her getting some action was also a nice touch. This was a very good way to finish off the feature.
How To Get & Use Tongue Piercings is a surprisingly good instructional release. It does drag a bit in the middle with the segments on oral sex, but if one would take all the extra information out you'd still have a release that lasts over an hour and with something like this that seems like a very reasonable length. The release does a great job of making the subject very friendly, and the interview and personal stories do a great job of covering most everything one might want to know about the subject. The demonstration was also very nicely handled, and I love that Lexi covered the subject with the interview before being pierced, through the piercing, and then talking about it after the piercing once she had a little experience with it. The talk show format was a little cheesy, but once again, it helped to make the subject very approachable and lightened it up rather than making it hard and a bit freaky. Yes, How To Get & Use Tongue Piercings could have been a bit shorter, but there's very good information throughout the entire release that's very nicely presented. If you're at all interested in tongue piercings but have questions or are a bit nervous about it, check this release out.

The Bottom Line:Currently, many of OSK Productions' DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $18. If you're interested in tongue piercings and want more information, this is a great release to pick up. It's a bit long, but also has a lot of good information. The technical aspects are a little on the weak side and there isn't much for extras, but that's not too unusual for instructional releases. This is a well done instructional release.
Note to OSK Productions: You did a very nice job here, but it would have been even nicer with an anamorphic transfer.
