Couples, and anybody who misses Melrose Place.
Taboo 19 is a throwback to those plot-driven features that helped define the '70's Golden Age. Chloe wants to have a baby, and his highly angered at hubby Mark Davis's inconvenient absences 'round ovulation time. She accuses him of "shooting blanks." Davis admits that he has a daughter, "Sweetie," (Melanie Stone) who turns up very soon after that and moves in with Dad and Chloe - but he's cavorting with her in a very un-fatherly way, unbeknownst to Chloe, who may be buying into Sweetie's doe-eyed you-wanna-kid-you-can-be-my-mom-adopt-me pitch. Meanwhile, Chloe is doing masseur Byron Long on the side and when Sweetie isn't sweet-talking Chloe, she's doing a bathtub bubble bounce with Amber Michaels and telling Amber that once the adoption is done they can get rid of that old coot Davis - who's really Amber's father, not Sweetie's - and live happily every after, just the two of them....
Chloe's desperate single-minded desire to have a child makes the whole thing female-friendly (if this were a book instead of a porn vid it would have a big fat "Oprah's Book Club®" logo on it) and the convoluted plot will keep viewers' eyes front and hands off the FF button. Occasional raucous side trips (like Madison, playing Chloe's mom, doing a scene with Dave Cummings, in which he dies of a heart attack in mid-fuck; she jumps on top of him and grabs him and says in anguish, "No! No!... I didn't get off yet!" and then she yanks out his dentures and diddles herself to orgasm with them) and Byron Long's duplicitous masseur wrap up the package into a satisfying whole.
Pre-nom to Chloe for acting, and one for Raven Touchstone's script.
