The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Adam & Eve’s compilations have been very hit or miss. I’m not sure what to expect here.
Initial Reaction: It’s okay, but not up to the level of some of Adam & Eve’s other recent comps.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a compilation with a focus on beauty
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a compilation focusing on passion and heat
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: As one would expect from a compilation, the technical aspects vary a little from scene to scene. That said, they don’t vary a lot. Most of the audio is clear and well balanced, and there are very few background noises or balance problems. The video is much the same way. The lighting varies a little, and some scenes are a little softer than others, but it never falls into a feeling of being poorly done.
Music: The music also varies from scene to scene. While some scenes go with heavier porno music, others go for soft country. It’s a nice variety, and helps the scenes to stand apart from each other.
Menus: The main menu is okay. It has an odd, simple, and slightly artistic feel, and for some reason it worked for me quite well. The chapter menu, however, is very basic and leaves plenty to be desired by just letting the viewer choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene.
The FeatureSlip Inside collects eleven scenes from Adam & Eve. The scenes are on the romantic side, and frequently feature water or the outdoors. As each scene starts, you’re told who’s in the scene.
|Scene 1 - Silvia Saint and Dale DaBone|
Dale and Silvia start things out in front of a waterfall with a scene from Devoured. Dale and Silvia kiss while sitting in a pair of chairs in front of a back yard pool and waterfall before he helps her strip down so he can kiss her a little lower. He lets his fingers help his mouth, and after a bit Silvia feels the need to reciprocate on him. They kick things up a notch with a little reverse cowgirl and some spooning, and even get in a little doggie fucking. Finally, Silvia takes a nice little spurt of spooge from Dale in her mouth.
This is a nice scene. It has a romantic feeling, but also has some okay chemistry between Silvia and Dale. Dale actually seems like he’s struggling trying to keep up at times, but I think this scene was fairly early in his career. I’m not sure how he couldn’t be a little nervous being paired with a superstar like Silvia. In addition to some nice action, the location and setting is very nice and helps with the romantic feeling. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 2 - Jessica Drake and Brick Majors|
Jessica Drake gets it on in a waterfall with Brick Majors in a scene from Sex Island. They warm up with a little slow kissing before Jessica drops down to mouth Brick’s manhood as the water pours over the both of them. Brick skips eating Jessica’s pussy, and goes directly to fucking her from behind before moving on to a standing frontal fuck and traditional cowgirl. Jessica finishes things up by having Brick add his spray to that of the waterfall and taking it on her face.
This is a very hot scene. It really starts things off right with great chemistry, and brings a very sexy feel along with it. So often scenes like this succumb to ‘pretty’ and artsy shots that kill the head, but thankfully that didn’t happen much here.
|Scene 3 - Cheila and Mark Davis|
Cheila and Mark’s scene comes from Sex Island’s companion porno, Caribbean Undercover. They kiss and fondle each other before Mark holds Cheila in the air to eat her pussy. She returns the favor by sucking his cock slowly and then lets Mark stab away on her snatch from behind. They move on to a little more athletic standing sex as well as Mark stretching out Cheila’s ass as she lays back on a conveniently blanket covered rock before Mark lets go with a fairly small pop on her stomach.
This is a good scene, and it has a nicely romantic feel. Sadly, the slow motion really started to get to me. It’s slowed just enough to notice, and after watching even half of the scene, the noticing turned from a mere comment to something that was fairly annoying at times. I can’t help but wonder what this scene could have been like done right.
|Scene 4 - Alexa and John Decker|
The next scene comes from The Fiesta. Alexa and John hook up in a jungle pool at the base of a waterfall. After diving in and swimming around a bit they head to the rocks alongside the pool to exchange oral favors. John gives it to Alexa both from behind and missionary style before blowing his ball butter on her stomach.
This is an okay scene . There seems to be almost as much attention given to the swimming in the pool as the sex, but it never acts like foreplay or tease. That gives this scene a very slow start, and Alexa doesn’t help it much with the sex. The biggest problem with the scene is that Alexa looks like this might be one of her first times on camera. She rarely acknowledges it, and often tends to look away from it. This is a fairly average scene.
|Scene 5 - Alexa and Evan Stone|
Alexa sticks around for the next scene, this time going with Emerald Rain and Evan Stone. Evan comes out of the woods looking like he’s gone native as Alexa washes her hair in a pool by a waterfall. He licks her pussy before fucking her face, and then fucks her from behind on some rocks. They get in a bit of missionary work before Evan fucks her ass doggie style. Finally, Alexa sucks and strokes Evan until he gives her a nice creamy load on her nicely natural tits.
This is a very warm scene. It seems like it’s more concerned with being pretty and capturing the scenery than showing passionate sex, and it isn’t helped out by the technical aspects. There’s no audio from Alexa and Evan, and the picture looks like it was stretched from a widescreen aspect to a full screen aspect. Although there’s anal, even that seems like it was trying to be softened as much as possible. This could have been a pretty good scene, but it just feels too pretty and sanitized.
|Scene 6 - Keri Windsor and Jason McCain|
The sex slips inside Naked Hollywood 1: Faking It next, with Jason McCain taking Keri Windsor in the shower. Jason starts out fucking Keri’s pussy with his tongue and fingers as well as moving back to tongue fuck her ass. She repays him with a vigorous blowjob that takes him all the way in and by letting him fuck her face good and hard. They move out of the shower for Jason to take Keri from behind, caressing, spanking, and grabbing her ass as he fucks her pussy. She rolls over for a little mish action before finishing by taking Jason’s pop on her chin and tits. It’s a very odd facial since Keri seems very afraid and unsure of it. It’s a little bit of a letdown as an ending, but the rest of the scene is really good. The ending fits in very well with the start of the next dialogue scene, which made any hesitation I had about it.
|Scene 7 - Tawny Roberts and Ricky Roberts|
Tawny Roberts and her real life hubby Ricky Roberts get it on in a scene from Photogenic next. They start out kissing in a swimming pool before Ricky holds Tawny up and eats her out in the shallow end. Ricky sits on the edge of the pool for Tawny to suck his cock before letting her ride it reverse cowgirl style. Ricky also gives it to her from behind, spanking her when she asks for it, before finally stuccoing her ass.
This was an okay scene. This is one of Tawny and Ricky’s early scenes, and it often gave me the feeling that they weren’t as comfortable in front of the camera as they are now. Rick’s much worse than Tawny when it comes to this, but at least he looked into it this time rather than looking like he was playing for the wrong team. The bigger problem, however, is that the camera work softened things up a bit too much. It seemed more concerned with capturing the entire pool area than the sex, and I found myself getting a bit bored several times during the scene.
|Scene 8 - Kaylynn and Randy Spears|
Kaylynn and Randy’s scene comes from The Collector. Kaylynn and Randy start things out in the shower holding each other with Randy slowly rubbing a bar of soap across her great ass. They continue to wash each other before Randy slides down to lick Kaylynn’s pussy. She sucks him in return before letting him fuck her from behind in the shower. They move to a bench by the windows outside the shower for a little reverse cowgirl and a bit of missionary work. Finally, Randy pops all around Kaylynn’s pussy.
Randy and Kaylynn look to be really into each other, but sadly the scene never works that well. Once again the style of the scene holds it back and sanitizes it with beauty rather than capturing the passion. It’s a beautifully shot scene, but it’s often slow with very little audio from Randy and Kaylynn. She looks like she’s loving every thrust and lick from Randy, but rather than feeling hot the entire scene seems like it’s trying to be a high class magazine. This is an okay scene.
|Scene 9 - Flick Shagwell and Evan Stone|
While hiking through the great outdoors, Evan spots hot brunette ranger Flick. He helps her across a stream and kisses her while groping her tits standing on some rocks near a small waterfall. He slides a hand into her khaki shorts and helps her strip down while kissing the back of her neck before sliding underneath her to warm up her pussy with his tongue. Flick sucks his cock while giving Evan some great eyes in return while he fingers her, and even lets him have a little throat before riding him reverse cowgirl style. Evan rearranges their clothes so Flick can have something soft to kneel on as he nails her doggie style. Finally, he pulls out and blows his load on her butt.
This is a pretty good scene. The camera work is a bit soft, especially during the pussy eating. Thankfully, it picks up as it goes and lets you see a bit of the action as well as the great chemistry between Flick and Evan. It’s a nice couples scene, but it also gave me the feeling that Flick and Evan were told to tone it down several times. Evan and Flick start off the movie pretty well.
|Scene 10 - Cameron and Joey Ray|
The penultimate scene comes from Amateur Angels 7. The action starts out on the patio next to the pool where Cameron gives Joey a little oral warmup before Joey gets into the pool to eat Cameron while she sits on the edge. Not wanting to work her too hard early into her career, he lets Cameron continue to lay there as he starts fucking her. They get in a little doggie style in the pool as well before moving back onto the concrete for some cowgirl before Joey decorates Cameron’s nicely natural chest.
This is a pretty good scene. Cameron and Joey seem to be into it okay, and Cameron still has much of the “new girl” feel where she’s not quite sure whether to look into the camera, pay attention to her partner, or what. The confusion didn’t do a lot for me, but you can tell that she’s enjoying herself which did work for me. It’s a good way to start off the feature, and I’m sure Cameron’s fans will enjoy seeing her as she’s still getting her feet on the ground here.
|Scene 11 - Lyla Lei and Devlin Weed|
Lyla hooks up with Devlin weed for a scene from Tell Me What You Want 5. She gives Weed a bit of a tease standing outside a shower with the water running before stooping down and letting him fuck her face. Lyla lies back and grinds her pussy against Weed’s face as he licks her, and then moans away as he fucks her from behind in the shower. She keeps it up with a reverse cowgirl ride outside the shower, and takes a couple breaks in both places to give Weed a little oral break. Finally, they get back in the shower for Lyla to take a facial.
This scene doesn’t even make it to the average mark for me. Lyla looks great, and the setup with him kind of being in control is a nice change for what I’ve seen from this series. Unfortunately, Lyla seems to play to the camera even more than Weed does, and she completely ruined the scene for me. Some of the playing to the camera has worked for me in this series, but not here.
Slip Inside is a fairly average compilation. It has some beautifully shot scenes, but sadly the chemistry and heat don’t keep up with the beauty. There are several scenes which almost get boring because of it, and there isn’t as much variety here as I’ve seen in many other Adam & Eve comps. The other thing that was missing for me was all the information. After watching a comp, the viewer should want to see more of the movie that some of the scenes came from, and if that’s given I think that there’s a good chance they will. It doesn’t matter if it’s done at the start of the scene, at the end of the movie with a scene by scene breakdown with performers and directors, or even in the chapter menu. I’m sure part of my dislike for Slip Inside is due to my wanting to feel the passion between the performers rather than seeing a cleaned up piece of beauty, but Slip Inside also didn’t show the care that I think should be shown to a compilation. Sadly, it’s also the care that I used to see from Adam & Eve and haven’t been lately.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts a little over two and a half minutes, and takes about five seconds to annoyingly pan or zoom in on each photo rather than just letting you see it. Trailers are included for Amateur Angels 19, Camera Club, Dirty Girlz, Fit to be Tied, Over 30 and Dirty, and Tell Me What You Want 5. There’s also weblinks and a bonus scene.
|Bonus Scene 1 - Gauge, Bridgette Kerkove, and Lee Stone|
The first scene comes from the easily skipped The Real Thing. Bridgette Kerkove and Gauge, who in my opinion is highly overrated even though she does have an amazing body, start the next scene off with a little kissing as butcher Lee Stone watches from behind the counter. Bridgette helps Gauge out of her fast food burger joint outfit to kiss and caress her better before Gauge’s tongue tempts Bridgette’s bald beaver. It doesn’t last long before Lee magically appears beside them and they team up to work on his cock. The girls give him a great warmup before Gauge lays on her back for Lee to fuck her as she eats Bridgette’s pussy. Gauge spreads her legs while sitting in the produce rack so Bridgette can fuck her while Lee pounds away on her pussy from behind. The girls finally team up to share an above average pop from Lee between their mouths.
There’s a little to like about this scene, and sadly most of it ends at the humor of Gauge’s burger joint outfit. Other than that, it’s a pretty average scene that doesn’t have much of anything you’d think of from either of the girls. It’s also held back some by the camera work and editing.
|Bonus Scene 2 - Ann Marie, Cindy Crawford, Melanie Jagger, and Steven St. Croix|
The second bonus scene comes from Secret Suburban Sex Parties. The scene starts things off with Cindy Crawford, Melanie Jagger, and Ann Marie. The girls show off their panties and diddle themselves with one girl sitting in a chair and the other two on a couch facing each other. They’re joined by Steven St. Croix, who Melanie goes down on immediately before climbing up to ride him cowgirl style. She turns around to let Steven fuck her ass while she plays the banjo while Ann and Cindy watch and diddle themselves. Steven finishes things up taking Melanie’s ass missionary style before backing out and hosing her down.
This is a pretty hot scene! It seems a little weird with Steven and Melanie being the only ones getting it on here, but it also helps to set the scene apart from so many of the other scenes out there. This leaves me torn because as much as I would have liked to see Cindy and Ann get in on the action, I also really like the uniqueness of the scene.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interracial, and anal
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: Very high
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Adam & Eve’s DVDs can be found online for between about $8 and $25 with several stores offering them for around $15. Aim low or rent this one first. There’s some okay sex, but not much. The technical aspects are normally pretty good, and there is a bit of care put into the extras. This is an okay compilation.
Note to Adam & Eve: I can easily admit that this one didn’t work as well for me due to the choice of scenes here, but a little more care could go a long way by listing more information about the movies somewhere on the DVD.
