Running Time: 86 min. (includes approx. 5 min. recap from Naked Hollywood 6: Money)
Production Date: 2 / 25 / 2002
Director: Toni English
Initial Expectations: Iíve been very impressed with most of this series, and have high expectations here as well.
Initial Reaction: It does a nice job of tying together the cast change while also giving some good sex.
Who Should Watch It : Couples looking for something light and with a bit of plot
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants a strong plot or sex a little on the racier side
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is pretty clear, but there is a little thatís obviously been dubbed, a little thatís slightly off balance, and a little that sounds hollow. The video is very well lit, but does show some very slight grain.
Music: The music is the same as Iíve heard in the rest of this series, and rests nicely in the background. This isnít necessarily a bad thing here since it helps hold the scenes together as part of something bigger, but it doesnít always fit the feel of the scenes either.
Menus: The menus have the same style as the rest of the series. The main menu has some decent animation and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of the scene and a scene number.
The Feature: Nina, Keri, and Dee are back. Laurenís also here, but sheís getting ready to change jobs, as well as towns. The girls get together to send her off, while also meeting Asia Carrera (who becomes Laurenís replacement in the foursome in the series).
Nina Hartley starts things out with Dale DaBone in a limo. She sucks and strokes Dale as he lays back in his seat, pausing only to let him concentrate on his cell phone when somebody calls. She finally strokes him and lets him pop in the air and on her tits.
Itís a very nice scene thatís a lot of fun. Nina clearly enjoys what sheís doing, and Dale squirms so much as sheís working him over that you canít think that sheís not driving him wild. Itís a short scene, but a great way to start the movie.
Keri Windsor hooks up with Pat Myne for the second scene. Keri orally attacks Patís organ right away, and takes him down her throat several times before letting him return the favor. She lets Pat move up to fuck her as she lays back and then turns around to let him fuck her from behind. She even rides him a little reverse cowgirl before Pat jerks himself onto her face.
Itís a pretty good scene, but feels a little off. Both Keri and Pat normally give a very energetic and intense performance, yet here Keri constantly has to tell Pat to smack her harder (spanking her, not treating her as if she was the wife of a professional athlete) which makes things feel odd here. Itís still a pretty good scene, just not as intense as I would have expected from these performers.
Asia Carrera and Steven St. Croix get it on in the third scene as Asia puts off going to a party. She and Steven start off with some passionate kissing before he drops between her legs and lets her grind her gash against his gums. Asia returns the favor with her normal amazing cocksucking abilities before Steven spoons her. They keep things going missionary style before Steven pops on Asiaís stomach.
This is a nice scene. Steven and Asia have great chemistry together, and both look incredibly happy throughout the entire scene. It has a very nice flow to it, but Asia occasionally goes a little over the top in her enjoyment. It gives things a slightly fake feel, but thankfully is early enough in the scene that by the end of the scene I had nearly forgotten about it.
Dale DaBone and blonde Nicole Moore get it on in the next scene. Nicole goes right to work on Daleís dick with a nearly hands-free hummer before laying back on the couch and letting Dale bone her bald beaver. She also rides him cowgirl style before taking a nice facial.
This is a straightforward and pretty average scene. Nicole and Dale have decent chemistry together, and the scene seems to fit the personality of their characters in the movie. My biggest problem with the scene was that Dale played with Nicoleís ass a little without it going anywhere. I donít know why, but she seemed like sheíd be a great butt slut, and it would fit in nicely with her character. I know that this is to be a couples oriented feature, but this really would have seemed like a great place to bring in a little anal.
Dee gets it on with Anthony Crane and Lola after they both make it clear theyíd like her to stay the night in the next scene. They let the warmups wander around between them, sometimes teaming up on each other but mostly working on each other in a line with Dee in the middle. They make sure that Dee feels welcome by letting her get fucked from behind before Lola gets it missionary style. Finally, Anthony gives Deeís beautiful breasticles and Lolaís mouth a very small pop before they kiss to finish things up.
This is a very nice scene. It maintains a nice swinging feel and a very good balance between Lola and Dee. It also works very well because everybody in the scene looks to be into everybody else. Anthony and Lola have made a good couple in this series, and they both look very excited to have Dee join them. Itís a very nice way to do things and still maintain a fairly couples-friendly feel to the scene.
Finally, Keri Windsor and Asia Carrera get it on after a little talk about bikini waxes. They explore each other while stripping down before Keri gives Asiaís pussy some tongue loving, Asia returns the favor to Keri, along with spanking her pussy, before riding Keriís tongue and letting her finger her from behind. They finally finish things up with some passionate kissing.
Just the thought of these two ladies getting it on immediately forms a tent in my jeans. Keri and Asia play off each other every bit as well as I could have hoped, and turn out one heck of a great scene here. Keri plays the dominant one just as well as Asia plays the slightly submissive one whoís willing to learn. Itís a great scene and should please anybody wanting to see these two ladies together.
Naked Hollywood 7: Never Say Goodbye is a nice piece of transition porn. It relies on a little knowledge of the previous episodes much more than the others in the series, which stand on their own very well. Much of what goes on with Nina Hartleyís character is building on the last episode, as is Asia Carreraís entrance. Sadly, Lauren Montgomery isnít in this one that much, but Asia Carrera comes into it very well and blends with the cast every bit as well as Lauren did in the past. Laurenís farewell scene is really excellent here, and the emotions of the girls seemed like they went far beyond just acting. Sexually, Naked Hollywood 7 stands nicely against the others in the series. The sex seemed like it was trying to stay very couples friendly at a couple points, such as in Keri Windsorís scene with Pat Myne and Dale DaBone nailing of Nicole Moore, but other than that it has nice chemistry and fits the scenes and characters very well. If youíre a fan of the Naked Hollywood series, Naked Hollywood 7: Never Say Goodbye is well worth checking out, but if youíre new to it you might want to start elsewhere.
Extras: Bios containing a photo and a little personal information are included for Nina Hartley, Dee, Lauren Montgomery, Keri Windsor, Asia Carrera, Lola, Evan Stone, Dale DaBone, and Steven St. Croix. The photo gallery lasts a little under a minute and a half, with about four seconds per slightly dark and grainy photo. Thereís also internet information and trailers for X Professionals, The Real Thing, All the Rave, and Design for Desire, as well as a trailer for Naked Hollywood 8 after the feature.
The bonus scene comes from The Third Eye and features Dale DaBone taking on the always enchanting April. They skip the foreplay stuff and get right to the fucking with Dale pounding away on her from behind. Dale stops to eat and finger Aprilís pussy a little before she hops on him for a ride. April finishes him off with some great head and even manages to take Dale all the way in her mouth a few times before taking him all over her face and in her mouth. Itís a very hot scene, just as Iíve come to expect from April.
Themes: Straight, oral, spanking, interracial, lesbian, and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: All except between Asia Carrera and Steven St. Croix
Overall: Currently, most of the Naked Hollywood series can be found online for between $8 and $22, with a couple stores offering them near the low end. This one is well worth the money for couples wanting something they donít have to be afraid of. Thereís some lesbian action, but itís handled nicely, and the rest is very couples friendly. The technical aspects are also nicely done, and thereís good care in the extras. This is a nicely done DVD.
Note to Adam & Eve: A couple other chapters on this DVD would be nice. The recap of the previous episode and the preview for the next episode are great additions, but would be much better as their own chapters. The same can be said about the credits, as both the opening and closing credits are pretty sizable.
