The box is more attractive than the tape itself, even if the hype -- \"running wide-open in the fast lane\" -- makes it sound like it\'s the porn version of The Wild Angels.
The title refers to an herbal substance that fixes the male characters’ wood problems. Too bad the vid itself isn’t likely to do the same for male viewers (it’s doubtful it’ll moisten too many customer pussies either).
That’s because, while well-energized, the tape’s five sex scenes – four pairing and one threeway – are strictly of the by-the-numbers, middle-of-the-road variety.
They’re an improvement, however, over the negligible plot, which, even for a porn tape, is used in an unusually superficial fashion simply to string together the fucking (i.e., the guys take the herbal boner tabs and then screw with supposedly renewed vigor).
Points off, too, for some questionable technical prowess – the sound drops out briefly in the middle of a snippet of dialogue – and the fact that while the vid is called Sex Drives, plural, on the box and the statement of record, it’s entitled Sex Drive, singular, in the credits themselves. Oy vey.
But hey, it’s great to see the still extremely cute Kelly O’Dell back in action – she doesn’t work that much since giving birth – despite her choice of this particular vehicle.
