“Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Advanced Fellatio” from Vivid-Ed is an overall good educational video dealing with the topic of sucking dick—the “advanced” sucking of dick, that is. Indeed, the viewer gets what he / she expects here and that is instruction on the art of fellatio—which, of course, has nothing to do with the paintings of an ancient Roman-era artist, but, instead, with the far more entertaining art of women putting penises in their mouths and working them over in various tawdry ways. Also included here—after the educational material (~55 min. in)—are a trio of scenes that serve to demonstrate the intoxicating power of this act on men and women alike. While the source of the intoxication on the men is overtly obvious, it is not so clear on the women. Regardless, its presence—albeit mystifying and of unknown origin—is still clear, as is evidenced by the unladylike behavior of the three actresses in their respective sequences. Indeed, one of them (Charley Chase; Scene One; excellent) appears to literally become drunk on cock—her apparent, diminished state being complete with a tremendous amount of drooling and a smearing of her makeup found otherwise only after a difficult night of heavy drinking and partying, both. Indeed, she lights up the screen with her passionate love of the male anatomy in her segment with Christian, which includes some POV action, a standing-69 position (no worries it is he who holds her up and not the reverse), and a scorching finish in which Charley brings him to orgasm with her hands and between her breasts—all followed up by some oral cock clean-off and kissing (Christian has few inhibitions) between the pair.
While not quite as intoxicated by having a penis in their mouths as Charley appears to have been, both Adrianna Nicole and Satine Phoenix do show signs of inebriation from—or, at the minimum, a great fondness for—the love-fountains of their partners—Evan Stone and Danny Wylde, respectively. In her sequence with Evan Stone (Scene Two; good-to-very good), Adrianna clearly has an oral fixation when it comes to the most relevant parts of the male anatomy. She blows Evan, rims him, and even works over his taint for good measure. There is some face-fucking and deep-throating here, and even what’s termed a “reverse-69”—which is a death-defying, contortionist’s way of enacting mutual oral sex with her partner. In such a position, the woman is on top, straddling the man’s face—facing forward and away from his body and also getting her pleasure—whilst simultaneously bending over backwards to suck his schlong. What a marvel this is, and Adrianna pulls it off with perfection! Sadly, by the end of the segment, the pair breaks fu_q’s Rule #1 regarding blowjob scenes—they remember that Ms. Nicole both has a vagina and that its primary sexual function is to have a penis inside of it. As such, the sequence closes out with Evan taking Adrianna in a missionary-like position before pulling out and letting her finish him off on her tummy—followed up, of course, by some oral cock clean-off. No scene would be complete without it, you know.
In Scene Three (good-to-very good), Satine Phoenix worships at the altar of Danny Wylde’s knightly manhood. Indeed, her devotion is quite evident, as she even takes to swallowing his saber in a risky oral maneuver known as “the sword”. In this stunning act of courage and daring, she lies back on the bed, with her head over its edge, and takes Danny’s weapon deeply into her mouth and throat. Including this feat, this segment, overall, is quite sensual and even has a tinge of domination by Danny at times. Again, however, fu_q’s Rule #1 of blowjob movies is violated here—this time flagrantly. Not only do Satine and Danny make use of her womanhood in the “appropriate” way, but they do so in a manner that flouts the entire notion of an oral sex scene—they do it a lot. At the end of the sequence, they move through reverse-cowgirl, doggie-style, missionary-like, and cowgirl positions before Satine blows and jerks Danny to a near-pop. At this point, he takes over and finishes himself off on her face and mouth. Guess what? Some oral cock clean-off ensues. Even with the undignified violation of Rule #1 that occurs in this sequence, the vaginal action is, indeed, quite hot…so I forgive them (amnesty for both!).
At this juncture, I will forego the humor in order for a serious discussion of the educational merits of this work to occur. The first ~55 minutes involve a segment narrated by Tristan Taormino—Vivid’s primary sex expert—that delineates the myriad aspects of “advanced fellatio”. Various techniques and styles are detailed, with these items often punctuated by clips of the corresponding activities—the bulk of which are taken from the three subsequent segments (described in the paragraphs above). Also sprinkled in are a variety of testimonials from different adult stars who, from all outward appearances, also enjoy oral copulation. Split-screens to show different angles of a given act are also employed to good effect. While it is, quite honestly, difficult to really say a tremendous amount about the how-to’s of oral sex on a man, Tristan does manage to put together a number of useful tips. Many of these items may well be “common sense”, but there is at least something to be learned here by just about everyone.
One should note that there are no advertisements that play when the disc is inserted, but the watermark in the lower-right portion of the screen—as unobtrusive as it is—is still present. The camerawork is very solid, as well, and there are a few “Special Features” included. There is a choice of four, related “Previews”, and there is a “Safer Sex” segment (~5 min. in length) that is as its namesake implies. Further, there is a “Photo Gallery” with “pretty-girl” shots and stills from the production, and a “Vivid Products” link that plays through advertisements. Finally, there is a “Vivid-Ed.com” option that gives an ad for the website that constitutes its namesake. A BTS segment and / or some bonus scenes would have made for more appealing bonuses here.
In all—and all kidding and / or super-seriousness aside—this disc is a good, educational one that is also hot in terms of the sex. In all honesty, it hits harder on the sex side than the instructional side, but there are still things that can be learned from viewing it. I would recommend it for those who are interested in educational porn, hot blowjobs, or who are fans of Ms. Chase.
