The slick cover art with Ann Marie and Violet Blue sells it.
Total Exposure is the total package: superb directing, magnificent production design (by Nanette Chinchilla), gorgeous photography (by Perry Tratt), incredible women ... and of course, mind-blowing, utterly soul-rocking sex.
Director Nick Orleans is just a brilliant maker of high-class smut - there are no two ways about that. He has managed to cram seven fully contained vignettes into these 123 minutes, and not one of them is anything less than a marvel of eroticism. One of the most thrilling and original touches he gives the production is his use of "tease" headers before each scene, with the title of the vignette slowly appearing over a blurred-out snippet from what's about to come, while the raw audio of that snippet rolls. What a way to get the mouth watering and the blood pumping but hard.
Of course, once the scenes get going, that heart rate shoots through the roof, especially when Ann Marie - the undeniable star here - is on screen. The lovely and sensational porn goddess has two scenes in TE, and both are absolute knockouts. In the first, she has an extended and beautiful lesbian love session with Monica Mayhem, before Ben English enters the picture with a bone for them to share. And for the closer, Ann Marie returns to square off with Lee Stone, bending over a kitchen stove and lifting one leg up to let him slam his cock into her divine hole.
There isn't space enough to get into the many other virtues of this vid, but here are some pre-noms to consider: Best Vignette Tape, Orleans for Best Director, Chinchilla for Best Art Direction, Tratt for Best Videography, Peter Wood for Best Music, and Ann Marie and Lee Stone for Best Sex Scene.
