The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Adam & Eve compilations can be fairly hit or miss. It's been a while since I checked one out, so I'm a little curious here.
Initial Reaction: Although the scenes were a bit hit or miss for me, for a compilation it shows some good care.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who's curious about what Adam & Eve's putting out recently
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting all smoking hot scenes or a compilation with a focus on a specific sex act
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: As with all compilations, there's a bit of variety to the technical aspects. The audio is pretty clear and well balanced throughout the release, due to most of the scenes being fairly recent, but there are a few minor background noises. The video is a mix of full screen and non-anamorphic widescreen formats. It's normally nicely lit with smooth camera work, but there are a few scenes that get a bit grainy or muddy.
Music: As with all compilations, there's a bit of variety to the music as well. Most of it is very well balanced with the rest of the audio, but none of it gets overly loud or interferes with the action much.
Deceptive Advertising: The cover lists “Miss Devine” and the director, but this is a compilation. Maybe “Miss Devine” picked the scenes and had good taste or maybe “she” had something else to do with it, but by listing her as a director makes this look more like an all sex or gonzo movie than it does a compilation. It can also be taken as a slap in the face to those who really directed the scenes in this release. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
Menus: The main menu is a bit generic, and blends a little animation with a clip from the movie. The chapter menu is very generic, and just gives s clip of each scene along with a scene number.
The FeatureKnobbin' & Slobbin' collects eight unrelated sex scenes. Each scene nicely begins tastefully letting you know who the performers are in each scene and where the scene came from in the lower left corner.
|Scene 1 – Cytherea and Dez|
The opening scene comes from True Hardwood Stories and starts out with Dez and cute brunette Cytherea kissing passionately on the couch while groping each other a little. Dez pulls Cytherea's lingerie aside to kiss one of her nipples before she slides all the way out and drops down to start slobbering on his knob with plenty of stroking and a few throat attempts. Dez lets Cytherea lay back so he can tongue her holes before she rides him cowgirl style and let him take her from behind. She lets go with a couple good squirts as he fucks her, and finishes things up taking a good facial finish before sucking out what's left.
This is an okay scene. There's some nice chemistry to start the scene out between Cytherea and Dez, but the camera gets so close as soon as it starts the blowjob that you can barely even tell that it's Cytherea sucking his cock. The scene moves along at a pretty good pace, and for its length it works. It does have some of the “it's just porn, don't put in too much effort” feeling that permeates about 99% of Roy Karch's work, but also comes out as one of the better scenes he's directed. This is a pretty average couples scene.
|Scene 2 – Lucy Lee and Mark Ashley|
Lucy starts out in pink gloves with a transparent black bra and panties, wide black fishnets, and black porno pumps to start out a scene from Dirty Little Devils 2. Mark peeps in from behind as she plays with herself and rubs his cock a little before moving in to eat her pussy and ass. Mark stands up so Lucy can help him out of his pants and into her mouth, and gives her a bit of help to take him down her throat a few times. Lucy lets him take her from behind first and then lays back for some missionary fucking. She gets on all fours for Mark to fuck her ass, and gapes nicely when he pulls out. Finally Mark sprays an impressive load all over Lucy's ass.
This is a pretty good scene. Lucy looks darn nice in her little black outfit, and I love Mark's watching her play with herself before coming in to help out. The scene is surprisingly light on the anal, but there is some good chemistry to help it out. This is a pretty good scene, but felt like it could have been much better.
|Scene 3 – Deja Daire and Rod Fontana|
Next up is a scene from Big Gulps 2 which starts with brunette Deja on her knees next to a bed showing off her pretty little titties while talking dirty. The scene moves to the couch where she leans over and goes right to sucking Rod's cock with Deja not wasting any time before trying to take it down her throat. She also sits back on the couch to let Rod fuck her face before laying upside down and letting him fuck her throat. Finally, Rod appears to pop in Deja's mouth as he fucks it.
This scene did nothing for me. I'm not a big fan of oral scenes to begin with, but this one seemed to give you more man-ass for your money than any other scene in recent memory. Deja looks to just lay there for most of it, which also did nothing for me. I'm very thankful for the remote with this scene.
|Scene 4 – Sunshine and Max Steele|
The next scene backs up a notch to go to the original Big Gulps. Brunette Sunshine starts out in a pair of black panties and heels next to a bathtub. She talks dirty to the camera while giving her pussy a quick rub before Max walks in and lets her go right to sucking his cock. Sunshine gives Max plenty of eyes as she sucks him, and mixes in a little stroking and ball licking as well. She moves back to play with herself a little as Max gives himself a hand, and barely makes it there in time to get a small facial.
This was an okay blowjob scene. Sunshine is easy on the eyes and gets into the cocksucking nicely. I like that she mixes things up a little working on Max, and her moving back to give him a bit of a show to get him to pop is one of those blessings and a curse. On one side it mixes up the scene a little more, but on the other it doesn't say much about her oral skills if her sitting back playing with herself works more for Max than having her wrapped around his cock. Once again, I'm not a big fan of oral scenes, but this one makes it up near the average level.
|Scene 5 – Goldie Coxx, Veronica Jett, and Talon|
Anal Cherry Busters checks in next with blonde Goldie, brunette Veronica, and plastic surgery gone wrong poster boy Talon. Goldie starts out bent over a pool table as Veronica checks her out from behind and lets her have a sniff of her panties. Veronica strips down and gets on the table for Goldie to tongue her ass before she works on it with a glass toy and they each suck it clean. As Goldie goes back to playing with Veronica from behind Talon arrives with a cock for Veronica to suck. The girls drop to their knees to work Talon over orally, and he helps them to each take it down their throat repeatedly. Veronica bends over the pool table for Talon to start taking her from behind with Goldie staying right there to offer up a bit of oral help cleaning off his cock. They move to the couch where Veronica impales her shitpussy on Talon's cock reverse cowgirl style as Goldie rubs her pussy and sucks Talon's cock clean again. Veronica continues to take it in her shitpussy missionary style before they head back to the pool table for Goldie to get her pussy fucked missionary style. Goldie also lets Talon fuck her pussy from behind before she gets down to take a nice pop from Talon and then swaps it back and forth with Veronica.
This is an okay scene. The focus seems to lean heavily towards Veronica, and although Goldie does get into the opening play pretty well she rarely brought much to the scene. Her lack of taking it in the ass in what sounds to be a heavy anal movie made her very forgettable here, and with the weak editing and camera work that seemed to be all over the place in the scene that forgettable feeling grew quite a bit throughout the scene. In fact, the only thing I really wanted more of in this scene was Veronica, who did do a very nice job throughout the entire scene. This was a very average scene.
|Scene 6 – Marie Luv and Jerry|
Knockout black babe Marie starts out the next scene in a little pink bikini waving her fine fanny all around and giving it a few slaps. She works it all around and plays with herself lightly before announcing that she's ready for her tight black ass to get fucked, at which point Jerry arrives. They kiss a bit before Marie drops down to put her mouth to work on his cock giving him plenty of eyes, stroking, and even some throat. Jerry sits back and helps Marie take it down her throat a little before she stands up so they can fuck standing up and facing each other. She lays back for Jerry to fuck her missionary style in each of her holes. Jerry lets her suck on a pink dildo before he fucks her pussy with it while fucking her ass, and has Marie suck it clean again before he gives her ass a good spooning and lets her work it into her pussy again. Marie gets up for a reverse cowgirl shitpussy spearing next, and also lets Jerry pound her ass from behind before she gets down to take a great pop in her mouth and on her face. Afterwards she swallows it down with a smile before sucking every last bit out.
This is a great anal scene. Marie looks as fantastic as ever and she and Jerry have great chemistry through the entire scene. The reverse cowgirl anal might last a little long, but with how much Marie looks to be enjoying it I really can't get down on it. I love her happy swallow at the end, and the camera completely eats her up from start to finish. This is a very hot anal scene, and easily one of the best in the movie. With how often Marie puts out scorching hot anal scenes like this (as well as non-anal scenes), it's sad that she doesn't get more of the attention she so much deserves.
|Scene 7 – Lezley Zen and Tyce Bune|
The penultimate scene comes from Stripped: Carmen Luvana. Lezley Zen starts things out with Tyce Bune running through the rain and getting into an elevator. They suck on each other’s tongue before Lezley drops down to mouth something longer and stiffer. She stands up and lets Tyce fuck her as she removes his shirt before bending over so Tyce can eat her ass. Tyce fucks Lezley from behind before decorating her chest.
This is a pretty good scene. Lezley and Tyce put some nice energy into it, but the chemistry seems to lack at times. Most of this seems to be due to Lezley overdoing things, but that also fit her character as she’s a stripper who hooks on the side. Lezley is another girl who rarely disappoints me, and she does another nice job here.
|Scene 8 – Sabre, Stephanie Tripp, and Byron Long|
The final scene comes from The Panty Drawer and starts with Stephanie and Sabre each in a bra, panties, stockings, and clear porno pumps bent over in a large box. They hit a few more poses before they start sixty-nining very lightly with Stephanie on top. They sit back and grind their pussies together a bit before Byron walks in, at which point they turn their attention to him and his big black cock. They admire it visually before teaming up on it orally, and after a while Byron lays back so Sabre can ride his tongue as Stephanie continues to work over his cock. Byron gets up to fuck Stephanie doggie style as she sixty-nines Sabre, and lets Sabre have a good taste of Stephanie's pussy from his cock as well. He moves over to fuck Sabre missionary style as Stephanie watches and plays with herself, and finishes things up popping on Sabre's stomach as Stephanie laps at the cum. Stephanie lets Sabre have a little of the cum with a kiss, and then gives her even more after going after Byron's cock.
This scene didn't do much for me. The similar looks of the girls is cool, but the artistic style of the scene just didn't do anything for me. The scene also seemed overly slow and soft with the chemistry lacking all around. This scene ended this release on a low note.
Knobbin' & Slobbin' is a decent compilation. Marie Luv's scene with Jerry and Lezley Zen's scene with Tyce Bune are easily the best here, with most of the other scenes coming out around the average mark. That said, there is a very nice mix of action here, with anal, interracial, cum swapping, lesbian, and oral action all mixed together. This should let most anybody who picks this release up find something they like, and it gives a very nice look all around what Adam & Eve is doing with their title studio as well as their Bad Seed offshoot. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this release is something I've harped about in other compilation reviews that nobody seems to get. Every scene lets you know not just who's in it, but where the scene comes from. I've said time and again that compilations act like a huge commercial for other releases, and Adam & Eve gets that here and lets the viewer know where they can see more. That care combined with the variety here raises Knobbin' & Slobbin' above the standard compilation even though it's not quite two hours long and the scenes didn't all work for me. This is a release that's to let you know some of what you might be missing with Adam & Eve across the board, and it does a very good job of it.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts about four and a half minutes, and zooms in or out on photos for about five seconds each. I absolutely loathe this style, and didn't last fifteen seconds before passing it by. Trailers are included for Black in White 3, Carmen's Dirty Secrets, Casual Sex, Jane Blonde DD7, Dirty Love, and O: The Power of Submission. There's also a bonus scene, internet information, and phone sex crap.
|Bonus Scene – Sandra Romain|
The bonus scene comes from Toy Boxes. Sandra starts out in a little pink lingerie talking about how she loves her job as well as a little about learning about her sexuality and masturbation. She rubs herself lightly as she talks with some of the footage being mixed together with her stripping and playing with her nipples. She squats down and fucks herself with a dark vibe that she also sucks clean before putting her fingers to work again for a moment and then fucking herself with a purple double dong that's a little bigger. Sandra sucks it clean before bending over to fuck her ass with it, and after taking it deep in her ass makes sure to give it another good suck clean. She also makes sure to include plenty of dirty talk as she takes care of herself, and finishes things up with a great smile.
This is a pretty good solo scene. As usual, Sandra looks darn good and takes it up the ass like a champ. The scene moves along at a pretty good pace, and Sandra's vocals definitely help it out. There's nothing overly special about this scene, but it does come in above the average mark.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, rimming (male > female and female > female), squirting, interracial, anal, group, lesbian, toys, ass to mouth, DP (technical), swallowing, and cum swapping
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Adam & Eve's DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with a few stores offering them near the low end. Aim low here. The overall compilation shows some nice care, but due to the variety in it while you might find a few scenes to your liking you'll probably find quite a few that don't do much for you as well. The technical aspects are pretty good, and there's a bit of effort put into the extras as well. This is a pretty good compilation.
Note to Adam & Eve: It's great to see you putting some nice effort into letting the viewers know where they can see more like the scenes here, but please don't put a name on a compilation other than those who directed the actual scenes.
