What we have here is a real story in a video produced, directed and edited by women with couples in mind. Technically speaking, the music is great, the videography is right on, and the lighting is crystal clear throughout.
The opening narrative turns out to be the voice of piano player Dee Gordon who recounts how life used to be in the old days when he worked as entertainment for a house of ill repute. The setting has a New Orleans feeling. The Madame of the house is non other than Chi Chi La Rue, who plays the role as straight and wonderfully as Divine might have if we were still alive.
Marc Wallice and Nick East are sailors on shore-leave with Wallice being East's best man-to-be on the last bachelor night before the reluctant East's wedding day. Chi Chi sends both upstairs with tart-of-the-moment Tina Tyler.
Next guest of the house to show up is Colt Steele who has honorable intentions for Dyanna Lauren whom he's been a-courtin' and with whom he's fallen in love. They repair to the kitchen. Dyanna is soft & feminine, and Colt is a tribute to testosterone as they romantically dip into the throes of love making in the kitchen. Back in the parlor, Steven St. Croix enters with his wife, Anna Malle. They've been having sexual problems withing their marriage and their shrink feels they both need to learn what only Chi Chi and the girls can teach them. Chi Chi lays Asia Carrera on the troubled couple for training. Asia heads straight for Anna, then she does Steven and shows Anna how to make him happy. The sensuously romantic jaz refrain in the background frames this picture perfectly.
Out in the kitchen, Dyanna is using Colt's dick for an orange juice squeezer, and it's amazing how a little flavoring can fire up a love scene. He proposes marriage and she promises to love and cherish him if he can afford her.
Just in case you were wondering, Marc, Nick, and Tina have found their way upstairs and best-man Marc expertly demonstrates to the reluctant-to-cheat bridegroom-to-be, what he should be doing on his final night of singlehood. Tina gobbles his gourd in a way to make most men jealous, and then rides his post to the tune of some really sweet twelve-bar blues. Marc keeps pressing Nick and gets him to accede to a final fling by blind-folding him & leading him into a room filled with Dyanna, Tina, and Asia. This four-way works so well that when it's over he takes off his blindfold and decides he's not really ready to give up the bachelor life just yet. Who could blame him?
A steamy little torch song is sung by Dyanna to the blues piano playing of Dee. This could have been wonderful if only the sound would have been handled with dubbing in post-production instead of "live".
St. Croix and Malle thank La Rue for saving their marriage. Steele & Lauren announce their betrothal and leave. East and Wallice still have time to d.p. Dane before curfew.
The women who made this video have proven that it's possible to produce a high level, erotic value feature without being rough, gross, or having to depend on special effects. Cathouse is a standard setter; is a must stock for every retail operation in the country.
