As with the last Private Life of… DVD I reviewed, this is a mammoth two DVD set, containing all of Laura’s best scenes for the studio. There are 6 scenes on DVD one, and 10 on DVD two.
As this is such a big DVD to get through, I have chosen to condense it this time by highlighting my favorite scenes and what I do or do not like about the set in general. For me, Laura Angel is one of the sexiest performers currently working (she has recently starred in titles for Evil Angel), what with her perfect body, long legs often clad in stockings or fetish wear, jet-black hair and wickedly defined eye brows. Her scenes on this release are all very glossy and well filmed, working with directors of such caliber as Tanya Hyde and Antonio Adamo.
There is lots of bang for your buck here, and I must admit there is very little bad about the product as each scene offers very explicit (including lots of anal) and stylishly-done sex (good make-up, interesting sets etc), especially the rain-soaked scene from Sex Shot and the Fetish stuff from Helles Bells and Xtreme Desires. Laura mugs to the camera, but is not off-putting, and I was especially impressed with how she kept her high heels or stockings on throughout.
Like the Monique Covet release, we get brief interview footage, but this time little or no behind the scenes stuff, which is good or bad depending on how quickly you want the sex to begin. I don’t mind, but the sex is so good in this DVD, quicker was probably best. It was also good to see Laura in scenes with Silvia Saint and the aforementioned Monique, as she seemed to work well with these two equally hot stars, and the scenes made me want to check out more of Silvia Saint (as I’m sure they would anybody). Also of important note is the cum shots – we get some great moments in nearly all the scenes, and some heavy loads splash Laura’s face from many angles, despite her mostly letting the cum dribble out other than swallowing it. This is always a good way to end a scene, and this DVD never disappoints in that respect.
It has to be said some of the scenes are very similar, with the location being the only change, but with added variety in the shape of group scenes and a beautiful but too short poolside lesbian scene (Italian Flair), there should be something for nearly everyone.
On the extras front this isn’t quite as impressive as Monique Covet’s set (pardon the pun), but we get a few trailers, plenty of magazine photo shoots and Internet Activated catalogue. We also get another chance to see the same footage interplayed into the first DVD, by itself, with Laura not exactly looking her best, yet speaking good English, even if I had trouble understanding the guy interviewing her. The soundtrack is in Digital 2 channel stereo and split into a variety of languages as always on Private releases. The menu’s are done exactly the same as The Private Life of Monique Covet, and are functional rather than flashy, but do have animated scene selection and cast details for each scene. The short quiz was fun, but I didn’t like how you had to go through this every time to see one of two bonus scenes.
Fans of Laura Angel will probably have this set already. It boasts quality sex throughout, some insight into the woman herself, and will appeal mostly to fans of Private, fetish, high heels / lingerie and decent cum shots. I have no hesitation in recommending this, but those who go for Gonzo style may find some of the stuff in this a little too glossy. I preferred it.
Verdict: 5 /5
