Once in a blue moon you find an industry performer who soars beyond the banality of their material. One such performer is the beautiful Ashlyn Gere. You can give her the instructions to a baseball bat, and she can turn it a medley of currents spinning into a huge thunderclap of raw sex.
Ashlyn has more than ample opportunity in Realitiesto stretch her video presence to the limits. In what's tantamount to a series of sophisticated custom videos, Realities is probably the next turn that the adult video industry is likely to take in an attempt to rescue itself from mummification.
In an introduction that's as contrived and corny as Kansas in August, lovely Ashlyn explains that this feature represents six different ideas submitted to her by her fans. Now it's the fans who have to come charging in like the Seventh Cavalry to the rescue. Actaully, Ashlyn should sue them for non-support. But what she does in spite of ideas that have been rendered on the sex-screen time and again, is timeless. The woman (and the videographer) should get an award for turning in a stale roll into a Rolls Royce.
In a bachelor party sequence, Ashlyn performs before eight guys which turns into an almost savage ritual of oral sex. While engulfing copious quantities of penis, there's more facial close-ups of Ashlyn than the LAPD has of Charles Manson.
The next sequence asks the musical question, have you ever given anyone a blow job for a part? Ashlyn says, personally, no, but of course you know what's coming next – she gets interviewed before this tribunal which includes Buck Adams and Trixie Tyler followed by sequences (the girl-girler with Tyler is a real angst probe of Gere's kisser) in which she does the very thing. Imagine if there was only one person interviewing Ashlyn. That means you'd have two less sex scenes. Nonetheless, the Adams scene records one of the best (bendover) sex angles ever witnessed on tape.
Gere and Sean Michaels recreate a scene from 9 ½ Weeks There's also an outdoor orgy involving Trixie Tyler, Marc Wallice and Buck adams, A contestable point comes about when Ashlyn goes into a whole big to-do about doing IT, you know IT. Even Ginger Lynn did IT. (An anal scene). The only problem here is Ashlyn tells you she's doing it for the first time a fact which has been post-dated by at least two previous features already on the market.
Ashlyn is superb, sensuous, beautiful and ravenously convincing in a tape that's full of spontaneous eruptions of energy. Imagine what she could do with some original ideas.
