Behind-The-Scenes : Ava Ramon sounds artificially amped, Brittaney repeats her few lines with director Blue, Nicole & Brandi flirt outrageously with the camera. Priceless for its last few minutes, as Nicole, all red-faced and overexcited, goes bananas and embarks on a silly choreography rampage. This girl is bona-fide.
WHO’S DOING WHO ?
1) ARIANNA ALYSE & ARIK ALYSE
A leather mattress lies in the center of a spare room. A fan winds a dim, peach-tinted light over latex-clad Aryanna, a nondescript dirty blonde with long curly hair. She’s joined by some tattoo-crazed fake blonde guy, who spends some time opening her up with a dildo. The filtered, dampening lights try to end intimacy, but the sex is joyless and mechanical, partly due to Skye Blue’s sparse use of natural sounds, partly due to Arianna & Arik’s lack of charisma. He spanks her in doggy, interrupts her mish to spank her some more with the dildo, then pops on her breasts.
2) VERONICA JETT & NICK JACOBS
Nick Jacobs is bare-chested, which is always a good thing, and wears a gas mask as he sniffs red & black latex dominatrix Veronica. Why the gas mask, I don’t want to know. After very long foreplay and a bit of gagging, she climbs on his cock in reverse cowgirl. The open-entry stockings are a nice touch, but once again there’s no heat. Too (wilfully?) disincarnate. They switch to doggy (Veronica keeps her stockings throughout) and anal spoon before he comes a copious load on her face.
3) NICOLE SHERIDAN & BRANDI WYLDE
Praise the Lord for Nicole Sheridan. She just can’t go wrong. Both her & stripper blonde Brandi look positively stunning in corsets & garter belts, sporting big sexy hair with fine jewelry. The surroundings themselves (a velvety, cabaret bar with a dildo rack) add to the luscious mystique. The sequence is rather long, bordering on 25 minutes, and is a lipstick lesbian bonanza. Brandi bends over a chair and squeals with delight as Nicole expertly fingers her twat, then replaces her probing fingernails with a colourful dildo in a variety of positions. It may all be an act or it may not, the fact is Brandi’s cries of enthusiasm are highly contagious, and Nicole is an expert top. They try on more toys, then end this marathon in a hot & memorable scissor lock, where they both lick their own feet while a dildo penetrates them from each of its end.
4) HALEY SCOTT & T.J CUMMINGS
Teeny blonde Haley caresses herself through her pink corset in the middle of a rococo living-room when in comes bubble butt T.J Cummings. She gags. Why of why do they all have to gag? Where oh where has the blow-job gone? This is so out of place with the otherwise romantic settings and fine lingerie. Oh darn. He takes her in scissor mish, doggy & reverse cowgirl for the brief anal finale. T.J’s bubble butt is a no-show, Haley is too young and generic and it all goes nowhere.
5) BRITTANEY STARR, AVA RAMON & MARCO DUATO
A duo of buxom blondes & their steroid lover nicely rounds up this unequal collection. Skye Blue works best with porn stereotypes, and Brittaney, Ava & Marco’s inflatable looks certainly are highly desirable ones. After a sexy double header, Marco takes Britt from behind while she fingers Ava’s snatch, then she climbs on his cock in reverse cowgirl. A fast P2M later, Ava gets missionary honours (more timid P2M). The girls lie next to each other and lift their gorgeous gams up in the air for a hot & sexy jackhammer before Britt ends up sharing the load with her girlfriend.
SO ? : Slick & soulless. Skye Blue surrounds herself with the best videographers, the most gorgeous cast and props but everything is so controlled and flawless that there’s no room for human behaviour. Even the attempts at more anarchic blow-jobs fall to the ground, watered down by the slow camera pans & classic framework. Still, the work on muted, faded colours is brilliant and may encourage an audience more interested by beauty than by passion to give this craftily executed but sexually mundane effort a look. A minor disappointment.
