Toss a disc of “Midnight at the Oasis” on your CD player, sit back, and get ready for what may very well be the first “couples” vid from Private! That’s right, the company known for scorching d.p. action and gorgeous, smiling jizz-guzzlers, has—by intent or default, who knows?—created a magnum opus of romantic, sensual adventure.
Taking a cue from that old Universal Films chestnut The Mummy (and especially its sequels), we find an appealing male/female archaeologist team on the hunt for an ancient tablet which will divine the location of (quite literally) a Pharaoh’s ransom in buried treasure. Hot on their heels is a trio of Egyptian policemen; at least they appear to be cops in this, the first installment, but we suspect otherwise, particularly since they’re sidetracked to frolic in the hills with an exotic concubine who requires an ass-fucking with the same obsessive fervor that possessed Yule Brynner in The Ten Commandments.
Our duo of well-meaning grave robbers eventually find their goal, but not before taking a few erotic excursions with their guide and his girlfriend, resulting in a double reverse cowgirl anal swap-a-thon. Aside from the glittering Arabic swag, they find a sarcophagus containing a perfectly preserved woman, who reveals herself to be the entombed Goddess of Sensuality.
Faster than you can say de-Nile, it’s flashback time, as the Goddess regales her saviors with lusty ancient tales where nubile maidens served their masters by sucking uncut dick and bending their hieroglyphic haunches over for some serious butt-cramming. Alas, “To be continued…”
To its credit, The Pyramid pulls out all the stops with authentic costumes, locations and frequent sex among the ruins. For American audiences, the fact that the spoken language is French may be off-putting at first, but the English narration helps smooth the way, even if it sounds like a phonetic translation for the mentally challenged. Besides, it’s such a visual piece that it practically doesn’t need the help.
Stock deep and keep the recommendations flowing at a rapid clip, ‘cause The Pyramid won’t disappoint regular Private viewers (it’s still as nasty as their other vids) but it could easily corral some extra revenue from those hand-holding twosomes wandering around your aisles, searching for just the right video for both of them.
