Climactic Tales is part of a continuing line of co-productions by Playgirl DVD and Wicked Pictures, and so it’s understandable that the model viewers are going to be. As an example, the bonus scene is a solo male masturbation joint with a muscle bound guy named Geo.
Every scene is incredibly ornate, and the whole cast is top notch, in both physical appearance as well as performance. However, when the ‘the gloss factor’ (i.e. music, costumes, setting etc.) is turned up as high as it can go it can overshadow the sex.
Climactic Tales is about as glossy as you can get, so it’s either (a) some of the greatest couple-friendly porn ever made, or (b) washed out romanticism that plays more like a music video and loses sight of the animalism of sex … or both. On the quality of the talent alone, it’s worth picking up to render your own decision.
Retailing: Sophisticated and couple-friendly.
