Retailers should be aware of the brief pissing scene... and should expect kudos from every horndog and music aficionado in the customer base.
When it comes to shooting tease, Michael Raven is fast becoming The Man – and Blondes might just be The (Most Recent) Tape that captures Raven's skill at its best. The teasing dance openings of each of the five scenes presented here are so good, in fact, the producers could probably make a few bucks compiling it into some sort of music video collage, even without any of the terrific sex which follows.
Simply put, there isn't a bad scene in here – the sex is hot, hot, hot from stem to stern. For instance, if you'd agree that one of the hallmarks of a good cowgirl or reverse cowgirl scene is the motion of the gal's hips, jamming down on the cock and/or rubbing her clit on his balls or groin, this is the video to beat. April, after an attractive, exquisitely-edited tease/peeing scene, does it with Eric Masterson, on a mattress in an alley setting – but that's only after she gets done being mished and doggie-pounded by James Bonn. Also riding the fleshy saddle horn (to a background of sedate guitar music) is Jodi Roxx, in a barn; with a quiet mish and doggie banging as well. One almost expects the camera to pan over to reveal Garth Brooks sitting on a hay bale. And in the finale, Silvia Saint seems to get almost as much pleasure from rubbing herself as from Eric Price licking her box, and her up-and-down motion during doggie and mish suggests she also knows how to stimulate her own G-spot. But again, it's her mastery of the vertical ride that's likely to turn viewers on the most – and garner a pre-nom for Best Couples Sex Scene.
Katja Kean, surely one of the sexiest Euros we've seen in a while, can't keep her hands off her button when Mr. Marcus pounds away in mish position. Of course, he's helped turn her on with his fingers, a long horsie fuck and doggie. And while not quite nom-worthy, the art direction here is well worth mentioning, particularly the feral shadow stripes playing across Katja's bod, against a gold Mylar background, during much of their scene.
Another interesting artistic choice was placing Maya Devine's dance/tease number in the men's urinal at an adult bookstore – and watching her get pounded, mish, doggie, cowgirl and "up and over," on the mattress where she's just completed her solo pleasuring – a real turn-on as well.
Beyond the hot babes, however, is the nomination-worthy editing, of which Raven is a past master. He knows just how to string shots together so the whole is much greater than the sum of its dozens of parts – and that takes a true artist. We're also nodding in the direction of Best All-Sex Video, though this tape is more than that. And on the off-chance that the Powers That Be will reintroduce a music or "sound design" category into the AVN awards, this feature deserves a nod for that as well.
