The Little Details

Running Time: 79 min.

Production Date: 3 / 7 / 2007

Director: None credited

Cast: Caren Caan, Kelly Wells, Sharmane Lynn, and Maxwell Schmart

The Short Story

Initial Expectations: OSK's How to Perform series has been pretty good and although Kelly Wells often doesn't do much for me, I've been impressed enough with Caren Caan that I can't help but have a bit of hope again here.

Initial Reaction: It's okay, but the surprisingly weak technical aspects and Sharmane's horrible job really hold it back.

Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting help with handjobs

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting plenty of care put through the entire DVD

The Technical Stuff

Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects leave a bit to be desired. The audio is easily the weakest in any OSK release I've seen, starting off with being at a very low level that makes you crank up the volume to hear it. The balance is also a bit off so in the music only segments you have to turn it back down, but the worst is during the final segment with Kelly Wells where you can barely hear her and the hiss in the background and the snapping of the cap on the lube bottle are louder than she is. The video is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen and looks okay. It's pretty well lit, but there are a few bright areas and there's also a varying degree of pixelation throughout the release. The technical aspects don't make it to the average level.

Music: There's a little music here and there. It's always very soft in feeling, and often works as the only audio in the segment.

Menus: The main menu is very simple, and just gives a still of the boxcover with the choices. The chapter menu is also very simple, and lets you choose a segment based on the girl in it.

The Feature

OSK's How to Perform series covers different sex subjects and acts with a little different approach. Rather than seeing how clinical and sterile they can make the subjects, they bring in a few porn stars and let them talk about the subject while demonstrating. This time porn chicks Caren Caan, Kelly Wells, and Sharmane Lynn talk about handjobs.

Scene 1 Caren Caan and Maxwell Schmart

Caren starts out talking about a little preparation before starting things out nice and slow. She talks about what she's doing and why as she plays with Maxwell's cock, and gradually picks things up while talking about what's often right to do at what point. Caren even talks about some of the control issues with handjobs as she works him to a pop in her mouth that she spits back out over his cock.

This is an okay scene. Caren looks to have fun stroking Maxwell off, and there's some great play at the end between them after he pops with both of them laughing like crazy. That enthusiasm makes this scene work nicely, but there aren't a lot of great tips for handjobs. Caren has a couple nice tips, but for the most part the information is very basic and the camera work is a bit tight. This scene might make it to the average mark.

Scene 2 Sharmane Lynn and Maxwell Schmart

Brunette Sharmane joins Maxwell for the next handjob segment. She talks about the joys of mutual masturbation as well as some of the psychological issues between partners and basic anatomy. Sharmane also talks about how to treat the balls, lubricants, and precum before moving on to talk about and demonstrate a few specific techniques.

This scene just doesn't do it. Sharmane does an okay job stroking the cock, but she can't take her eyes off the script that's obviously sitting next to Maxwell. She steals a few glances to Maxwell, but gives the camera far less attention anytime she has a cock in her hands. This makes her look not just like she doesn't know what she's talking about, but like she's almost an idiot in general. Sharmane also gives plenty of looks at the camera that make her look like she isn't sure what they're talking about to make things even worse. Beyond that, the scene works through several nice positions but as an authoring issue, lumps everything into one chapter so people who want to try something different now and then have to go through most of the scene to find something they might have missed rather than having a different chapter for each method that would make it easy for people to skim through. There's some good information in this scene, but Sharmane and the authoring of the movie hold it back badly.

Scene 3 Kelly Wells and Maxwell Schmart

Kelly starts off the final segment talking about how there's so many more ways to give a handjob than to have strictly vaginal or oral sex before joining Maxwell on the bed. She teases him a little through his pants before sliding them off, and then starts stroking his cock while describing what she's doing and why. Finally, she looks to get a very small pop on her hands.

This is another okay scene. Kelly gets into the handjob nicely and talks her way through it very well. Sadly, the horrible audio in the scene and Maxwell's limp cock didn't do a thing to help the scene. He does chuckle a bit to show he's having a good time, but the bad of the scene held back the good quite a bit.

How to Perform a Handjob is a pretty average instructional release. There's some nice tips throughout the movie, and I like how OSK brings in several different performers to talk about the subject rather than just seeing how far things can be stretched out with one couple. On the other hand, having different people present the material means that some of it is always repeated, but that's not always a bad thing. Sadly, this release didn't work as well as many of OSK's other instructional releases have for me for a couple reasons. The first is the technical aspects, as the audio here is the worst I've experienced in any OSK release and made it very hard to hear the girls (especially Kelly). The other problem is Sharmane, who comes off at best as being completely clueless about what to do in front of a camera unless there's a dick going into her and who's scene went for a completely different style possibly because of it. If you're lost when it comes to handjobs and would like a little help, How to Perform a Handjob is probably worth checking out, but don't go into it with the same expectations you'd have for most of OSK's other instructional releases.

The Extra Stuff

The photo gallery lasts a little over eight minutes with about three seconds per fair to poor looking screen capture. Trailers are included for Black Velvet, Tortia, How to Perform Cock and Ball Torture, How to Perform Rope Bondage, Ride of Your Life, Keep on Rollin', Car is a Rockin', Sexy Girl, and All the Way.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

Themes: Straight, instructional, handjobs, interracial, and oral (minor)

Raincoat Factor: Medium high

Condom Usage: None

The Bottom Line:

Currently, many of OSK Productions' DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $18. If you're wanting help when it comes to handjobs, this one's worth a rental. There's some good tips, but Sharmane (who does most of the demonstrations) seems completely lost and the technical aspects are very inconsistent. There's also no real effort put into the extras. This is a pretty average instructional release.

Note to OSK Productions: I love how you bring in porn babes to help demonstrate the different subjects in this series, but in the future I hope you make sure all of them know what they're doing and talking about.
