Critical Rating: AAA 1/2
Despite the girl/girl shaving scene, Rocki Roads solo hot-waxing, and a parade of latex and spiked heels, Fetish is more of a straight-ahead sex video than it is a specialty tape —probably due to the unfortunate paranoia regarding the union of hardcore with B&D/S&M.
Except for a hiccup or two in editing at the end, the video is technically sound, with videography and music both worthy of pre-noms. Best of the sex includes Samantha Strong and Mark Davis in an energetic table-top twosome, and boxcover girl Chloe giving her usual volcanic performance as she takes on Valentino, Dick Nasty and Rick Masters in a photo studio. Pre-noms this tryst for Best Group Scene.
There's little here to sustain the interests of dedicated fetishists, but couples who are taking their first steps beyond the realm of vanilla sex may find Fetish a useful primer for further exploration. The collectible, pre-nom-worthy "boxcover within a box" (see Boxcover of the Month —Ed.) will doubtless ring up a few additional sales as well.
