Critical Rating: AAA 1/2

We at AVN support pornography for everyone -- regardless of race, creed, gender, inclination or genetic disposition.  Everyone deserves to become aroused and everyone deserves to get off.  The thing of it is, pornography cannot be all things to all people.  That's why there's specialty product, Afrocentric fare, and gay hay rides.  And that's why Candida Royalle makes porn for women.  Which brings us to the topic of the day: Context. Context is everything.

The Bridal Shower could be -- and probably is -- a terrific arousal feature for women, but as a stroke vid, it's as frustrating as the guy with the hook-hands in The Fugitive.  Unlike another fine vid for women -- one of this month's Editor's Choices, Kama Sutra -- the sex in Royalle's feature is haltingly tame.  Tame to a point that we suspect Bridal Shower would appeal more to the woman who sits at home reading Barbara Cartland novels and masturbating to Fabio's pics than the horny gal on a last-call pickup in the local singles bar.

Unlike My Surrender, this feature doesn't probe any psychological depths.  Essentially it's a round table discussion of sex over fresh fruit plates and shower gifts.  This kind of scenario may elicit hot pants from the yenta club, but it's death to an erection.

However, females may find themselves drawn to such outings as a romantic mountain picnic with Sharon Kane and hunky John Curtis... or a touchy-feely-session with blindfolded Melissa Hill and a goateed Jonathan Morgan... or a gentle poolside session with Porsche Lynn and Mike Horner.  Like so many purported Elvis sightings, genitalia are glimpsed only briefly.  The real star of the vid is not the talent, but rather the copious amounts of food that they ingest while having sex, such as a banana triple-split threesome with Mickey G., Missy and Nina Hartley.

If you have a target audience of women, you should definitely stock and recommend this tape.  The male gender may be a bit less interested.
