Diva is, if not the finest all-girl series entry I've yet seen, certainly damn close. Almost every scene smokes, and perhaps more importantly, every scene is different. So whether you're jones-ing for gritty hyper-realism or warm pink fuzzies, stark near-B&D in B&W or the Catholic schoolgirl look, it's here.
Once you're past the excellent opening-credits collage, the "contrasts" theme rears its pretty head immediately. Picture a white decor with two demure, short-skirted vixens (Juli Ashton, Taren Steele) watching two slick-haired, horny seductresses (Monique DeMoan, Misty Rain) ply each other's pussy with tongue and dildos. It's called "The Lesson," and it's not long before Ashton and Steele almost absent-mindedly let their fingers do the walking though each other's cotton panties. Lesson learned, Steele quickly finds herself writhing at the labial ministrations of her three cohorts.
Two solo scenes follow, featuring Vicka and Laura Palmer, and they're easily worthy, if we had such a thing, of Best Female Masturbation Scene of the year. Of course, when these two Euro knock-outs get together for a duet, it's Dante's Peak all over again. And it's not just the raw sexual action that makes this scene a winner. It's little touches like tight shots of Vicka smouldering and licking her lips; Palmer's tiny slaps and caresses of Vicka's thighs; editing that slows down and speeds up the action at just the right points; and even color-coordinating Vicka's dildo with her dark blue vinyl outfit.
While neither the Sindee Coxx nor Taren Steele solos which follow generate the heat of the rest of this tape, their scene together, "Pink Electric," smokes. Steele videotapes Coxx undressing, fingering herself and sucking a pink dildo, then moves in to ram the rubber rod up Coxx's cubbyhole.
It'll feel like the old Michael Ninn again when you see Jeanna Fine, clad in vinyl Boots and a teddy-boy hat, video'd in glorious black-and-white, talking hot to the camera. And Lauren Montgomery's and Anna Malle's solos which follow aren't chopped liver either. But when the three get together for Montgomery's dream sequence, you'll be on the edge of your seat, cock (or pussy) in hand, keening toward climax. How will you be able to resist when " i n q u i s i t o r " Fine intones to " p r i s o n e r " Montgomery, "Do you need us to take the pain away... or do you need a little physical pain to make the mental not feel so bad? 'Cause we can do that... very well. And it's your dream, after all... so you must want it real bad."
The final sequence features solos by Ashton, in plaid mini-skirt and jean blouse, and Kim Kataine, complete with saddle shoes and anklets. If you haven't shot your load already, watching Ashton strip should make it happen pretty quickly. But if you do survive to their "Cool White" scene together, be prepared for lots of labia-lapping and mutual dildo pleasuring.
I hereby pre-nominate this tape as Best All Girl Feature; Best Continuing Video Series; Best Art Direction-Video; Best Editing-Video; Best Direction-Video; Best Videography; Best Girl/Girl Scene (Vicka and Palmer); and several of the solos for Best Tease Performance. And based on this tape and other parts she's played, I wouldn't be surprised to find Vicka's name on the Best New Starlet list. Michael Ninn and company, you've done it again!
Director Michael Ninn counted the all-girl Diva series' four volumes among his favorite productions. In this series opener, almost every scene smokes, so whether you're jonesing for gritty hyper-realism or warm pink fuzzies, stark near-B&D in B&W or the Catholic schoolgirl look, it's here.
While nearly everything here smokes, fans will most want to see Jeanna Fine (clad in vinyl boots and a teddy-boy hat), Lauren Montgomery and Anna Malle doing solos, then getting together for Montgomery's dream sequence, where Fine and Malle play inquisitors to "prisoner" Montgomery. Mini-skirted Juli Ashton and saddle-shoe-clad Kim Kataine have hot solos as well, and their scene together features lots of labia-lapping and mutual dildo pleasuring.
