SCENE BREAKDOWN :
1) MALEZIA & JULIAN
Porn starlet Malezia will perform private shows for privileged fans, but they’d better tip generously. She strips & gets her picture taken by Julian in a velvet booth. With his buff body and his big dick, this fan should consider a career in porn. Anyway, it doesn’t take long for Malezia to go the extra mile for her unusually attractive admirer, and it’s only minutes before she’s gyrating her taut, tight buns over his massive member. She bumps & grinds that small tushy until he’s all the way in, then he takes charge in hard-hitting missionary. Great work on the close-ups. Then something happens. Cut to Julian inserting a rocket dildo in Malezia’s backdoor while she’s 69-ing his deflating dick (which was rock-hard seconds before the cut). Could it be the stud prematurely released himself inside the lithe beauty & they had to build the passion all over again ? Anyway, she stiffens that cock in no time, and he climbs over her chest to pop on her face. A good scene (Malezia riding & grinding is a sight to see !), but the break in rhythm is definitely unsettling.
2) ALEXIS MALONE, JULIAN & TOMMY GUNN
The cash is nice, but street worker Alexis Malone is really in it for the sex. Erm, well it’s a porn movie, so we’re allowed to believe that. She services mega-hunks Julian & Tommy Gunn in a graffiti-strewn alley, pulling her fishnet top over her B-cup breasts & kneeling to suck both hard dicks. Then Tommy munches on her twat while she bends in doggy to drool some more on Julian’s cock. Nice low-angle close-ups of Alexis spreading her labia very wide to ease Tommy’s tongue in. The guys are very pleasant to the eye too. Julian takes her from behind as she bends over Tommy’s dick, then she bumps on the latter’s pumping tool in cowgirl, Julian’s biggie filling her mouth. Alexis goes a bit through the motions, but the guys (especially Tommy) really elevate the scene with their energy. She jacks them to release.
3) MALEZIA & KRIS KNIGHT
Malezia & Kris are bound to prove you can perform for a camera and enjoy yourself. Kris is a tall, good-looking stud with a toned body & a dragon tattooed on his right pec. There’s a lot of foreplay & dry-humping going on, most notably when Malezia rides his leg then rubs her pussy against his erected shaft in cowgirl, which is very sexy. A lot of oral sex ensue, then they get down to it in cowgirl & reverse CG, and he comes on her butt. The demonstration of “mixing business with pleasure” is not entirely convincing. It’s a nice scene, but it strives to get off the ground, and Malezia actually looks like she was taking more pleasure with Julian.
4) DANI WOODWARD & SCOTT NAILS / KELLI TYLER & FRANCO DEL TORO
In the next vignette, Scott & Kelli, separated by a studio wall but on the phone with each other, tell one another what their respective sex partners are doing to them. After a wide shot establishing that all 4 performers are indeed in the same studio set having simultaneous sex, Chi Chi craftily alternates camera time between both couples, succeeding with a simple color scheme that divides as well as unites, and a common energy that elevates the unlikely set-up into a balls-draining, lust-driven grind-a-thon. Dani & Scott, particularly, engage in a lengthy, steamy oral session, the kind that puts blow-job tapes to shame and that will inevitably drain the viewer’s resources before the “real” sex has even begun. On the other side of the wall, nubile newbie Franco plows into gorgeous, white-clad Kelli, who grabs her heels & spreads her legs as wide as possible to ease the intrusion. It’s useless describing all positions (spoon, mish, cowgirl…), let’s just say that’s there’s no anal, since people seem to give such a fuck these days, and that Dani takes a facial (Franco misses Kelli’s face), but this hot, heavy, passionate 30-minutes hump-a-rama is so high on chemistry that it’s worth alone the price of admission, and if all parallel, simultaneous sex scenes were that hot & cohesive, well I don’t know what would happen, but I’d sure be happy. Simply awesome !
5) MALEZIA & MONIQUE ALEXANDER
Just because the club closes doesn’t mean Malezia & Monique have to stop dancing. The lithe brunette & the lither blonde, both wearing leopard bodysuits, gyrate around the pole of a dimly lit stage. The red filters, the saturation of which is perfectly controlled, lend this dance of love an intimate & erotic edge. Kudos to the D.P for his mastery of shades & colours. Malezia lays to let Monique tongue her pussy & pierced clit. Both girls look absolutely amazing, images of naked sophistication licking & fingering each other. If you’re in the mood for bubbly bimbos, pass your way. Malezia whips Monique’s pussy with her long hair, then gives her new Vivid colleague her own kind of oral attention. The beauties lock into a steamy scissor before Malezia puts a dildo in her mouth, which Monique craftily impales herself on. A fabulous idea that is repeated twice and gives way to more classic toy play. A slow builder but a visual coup de maître.
PARTING THOUGHTS : First, a round of applause to Vivid for finally getting rid of the multiple angles. "VIP 54" was already bereft of it, and here we have the confirmation of its definite demise. The device was pointless & ridiculous. On with the show, which is neither better nor worse than the average LaRue vignette, A safe rental option for couples & a very honourable showcase for contract girl Malezia, "X Marks the Spot", with minimal settings & broad-reaching sexual scenarios, covers the requisite bases with varying degrees of heat, ranging from lukewarm to blistering. Its bare aesthetics send back to the same director’s earlier effort "Woman under Glass", but whereas minimalism worked against Savanna Samson’s All-American-Girl looks, it enhances Malezia’s urban, City Girl sophistication. As for the Woodward / Tyler foursome, it is reason enough to sample this release. All in all, a valid addition to your LaRue collection.
