Initial Expectations: Iíve really enjoyed a lot of Nick Orleansí features, which gives me good hopes here as well.
Initial Reaction: Itís not the most impressive DVD overall, but the feature is typical for Nick Orleans, whose style Iíve always enjoyed.
Who Should Watch It : Couples looking for slightly artistic sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for very hardcore sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is nicely balanced and clear. As usual with Nick Orleans features, thereís quite a bit of dubbing, but he handles it much better than most. Thereís a lot of the video thatís slowed slightly to help with the mood, so there has to be some dubbing if thereís to be any sexual sounds. He handles it very nicely by having most of the dubbing occur when the camera isnít focusing on the peopleís faces, which makes it not quite as noticeable. The video is a little grainy, but Iíve come to expect this from Adam & Eveís older DVDs. Thereís a few soft focus problems but very few shadow problems.
Music: In a common occurrence when guys named Nick do movies for Adam & Eve, Saint does the music. This is always a big plus for me as I find Saintís music very sexy. The music varies from being nicely balanced with the rest of the audio to being the only audio. It fits most of the scene and greatly helps them out.
Menus: The menus have a small clip from the start of the feature and is surrounded by pink. Although it fits the name of the movie, itís not that pleasing to the eye and knocked my expectations down a little. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a clip and a scene number.
The Feature: When driving down the road in her pink convertible, and wearing her pink gloves, bra, and stockings, Shayla LaVeaux gets lost and finds herself in Pinkville. People are a little different in Pinkville, and have no problem having sex in front of newcomers. In fact, the visitors seem to find new sexuality in themselves, including their dreams.
Amber Michaels, who starts out in a black and pink dress, and Alec Metro, dressed all in pink, start things off showing Shayla how different Pinkville is by having sex in front of her. Amber, a nice looking dirty blonde with some not so nice implants, energetically works Alec over orally before letting him lick her pierced and bald beaver as she lays back on Shaylaís car. Alec moves into the back seat so he can fuck her where she lies, and gives her nipples a little sucking as he pumps away on her. They change things around so Amber can be in control with a reverse cowgirl and then finish things off with a very impressive pop on her face. Itís a very warm scene that borders on hot.
Alyssa Allure, a brunette who looks a little on the trampy side but has some nice real tits, gets a massage from her servant Ian Daniels. He starts massaging her pussy with his tongue and then works his fingers in. Like any good servant, her strives to please his madame, and lets her suck his cock when she tells him that she needs to. He works her pussy over in both the missionary and doggie positions before she lays back to let him take her in the ass. Alyssa ends things by taking a fair pop from Ian on her chest. Thereís some very nice chemistry in this scene, and itís pace also builds some very nice heat through the scene.
Stephanie Swift, looking ever bit as tasty as ever, checks to see if blonde Elena is special enough to work in their bakery. She frosts the word ďpussyĒ on a cake and then checks to see if Elena would like to try it herself. Elena frosts a ďcockĒ on her cake and then strips down Stephanie to try the pussy. She teasingly licks around Stephanieís ass before going down further to lick her pussy. Stephanie repays her by working over Elenaís tits before dropping down to finger and lick her pussy. Itís a nice little warmup to the double dildo action that Stephanie leads before the girls finish things out in a sixty nine. As frequently and unfortunately occurs with girl - girl scenes, itís cut off pretty sharply without really feeling finished. As usual it hurts the scene, which was pretty hot beforehand.
Shayla LaVeaux finally gets in on a little action with Mark Davis in her dreams. Shayla wraps her legs around Mark and brings herself down on him to get him to eat her pussy. Unfortunately very little of Shayla getting her pussy eaten is shown, with the action turning to Shayla sucking Markís cock after rotating around on him. They work through a few of the standard positions while building some nice heat and looking like theyíre enjoying themselves quite a bit. Mark ends things by giving Shayla a nice face full of spunk that she takes extremely well. As Mark and Shayla work each other over, several other couples are also getting busy around them, who we are also given glimpses of here and there. Itís a nicely done dream sequence and fits some of the odd feel of the feature.
Charlie, a gorgeous brunette who seems to be highly underrated, gets herself taken care of by Dante, the head of Pinkville who ironically looks like hell. He starts out eating and fingering her pussy but takes frequent breaks to kiss her on the mouth and suck her great tits. Charlie returns the favor by working over his cock and balls with her pierced tongue and mouth while frequently smiling and giving him some great eye contact. Charlie lies back to let Dante fuck her while sucking on her toes, and sucks her juices off his cock before letting him fuck her from behind. Charlie even fingers her own ass as he pumps and spanks her before letting Dante finger and then anally pile driver her ass. She finishes him off with a little tit fucking and sucking on the head of his cock that leads to a nice pop on her tits. Itís an extremely hot scene with great chemistry that reminds me why I always look forward to watching Charlie.
Shayla LaVeaux returns for the final scene, this time with Temptress, one of the most natural beautiful women to star in adult films in the last decade, and Johnny Packwood. Shayla starts things off sucking on and masturbating with a pink dildo for Johnny and Temptress, who soon joins in on the diddling and soon comes over to work on Shayla herself. Of course, Johnny isnít to be left out and starts taking care of Temptress as she works on Shayla. The girls soon team up to work on Johnny as he works on Shaylaís holes with his tongue and then each take a turn getting fucked by Johnny while working on the other. Johnny brings thing to a close by blowing a slightly below average load over the girls as they cuddle together. Itís another pretty hot scene that has some pretty good chemistry.
Although nothing thatís going to set the world afire, Tales From the Pink is a nice piece of erotica. There isnít much of a plot, but the sex works nicely throughout the feature. Alyssa Allure and especially Charlie really stand out nicely in their scenes, which are have a nice artistic feel that doesnít get so artistic that it ruins the sexuality. Itís all pretty standard for Nick Orleans, and should please anybody whoís become a fan of his style. Tales From the Pink will give you a new appreciation for the color.
Extras: Starting things off is a trailer for Serenade which occurs before the feature starts and isnít located on the main menu. There are also trailers included for Caribbean Undercover and Taboo of Tarot which you get to from the main menu, although you donít get a submenu to choose a specific trailer. Instead you get one after the other. Bios are included for Alec Metro, Charlie, Mark Davis, Rayveness, Shayla LaVeaux, Stephanie Swift, and Temptress. The age of the DVD is obvious here since thereís only text biographies and not even a picture of the star in them. The photo gallery contains about twenty snapshots and full screen photos, most of which look extremely blurry. Finally, thereís website information.
Themes: Straight, masturbation, anal, lesbian, rimming (female > female and male > female), toys, spanking, and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Overall: Currently, Tales From the Pink can be found online for between $8 and $22 with several stores offering it for under $10. Although not much of an overall DVD, itís hard to not recommend it at the lower end. The sex is very erotic and drives the feature. Unfortunately the extras lack quite a bit, but the transfer is still pretty average. For ten bucks, however, you can do a heck of a lot worse.
Note to Adam & Eve: Itís great to see that youíre lowering the prices on some of your older releases to the point that stores can offer them for this low of a price. Itís also nice to see how far youíve come with your DVDs.
