Good cast, boring & repetitive presentation
This lesbian compilation video, including the separately listed by IMDb "My Personal Trainer" vignette, is a typical high-concept issue. Jail-bait appearing young beauties dressed in yoga gear exercising and stretching segue without much ado to XXX sex, the update of the formula David Hamilton pioneered in his dreamy soft-core features of the '70s into '80s. I've forgotten his name but Ron so-and-so did trademark sex exercise short videos around that time which were hypnotic to watch on TV: beauties in exercise poses spinning around on special revolving platforms. This is generic "soft XXX" porn for today's horny couch potato.
The Bree Mills/Stills by Alan team is joined by David Lee to fill out the show, with filler. Problem in watching these, and I'm probably their most loyal fan in the DVD sphere, not having any interest whatsoever in joining the streaming craze, is that you can't separate the filler from the meat - porn's Hamburger Helper syndrome. Like the hundreds of massage videos these folks produce, the endless soft-core tease build-up is present here, before pornography rears its beautiful (in this case given these lovely participants) head.
Aforementioned "My First Trainer" has porn's current #1 star Riley Reid doing yoga stretching next to Sam Rone, and then helping her out as unofficial personal trainer. Rone is so beautiful the segment is carried on her back, but suffers as does 90% of this sort of porn with incredible segues from innocence to full-blown sex acts. Rone's balking at Riley's sexual aggression is completely token and unbelievable, for the thousandth time in recent memory.
My theory is that all-sex pornographers, of whom Mills & Stills are clearly pigeonholed, resent their being lumped in with the post-Max Hardcore gonzo revolution and feel the need to deliver paper-thin, insincere story lines for some sort of cred. It may fool the critics and industry award bodies (see Greg Lansky's "story content" as a prime example), but it can't fool any astute viewer - what we get is stalling before the inevitable delivery of "the goods". Interestingly, Dave Lee's segment "Treatment with Pleasure" starring Alexis Crystal and Taylor Sands, dispenses with prologue and starts off with the sex in progress, wall-to-wall without apology or fraud. They don't give out honors for truthiness, but even an old story line fanatic like me applauds Lee's honesty.
Since I've recently drunk the Piper Perri Kool-Aid, her segment opposite Jenna Sativa is my favorite -poetic synchronized exercising in their fancy athletic wear, and then the usual lick and finger action for orgasms' sake. Piper's dialog delivery and making faces is not worthy of Stella Adler, but she's cemented her place in porn history from an image/sexual performance standpoint, and is unlikely to graduate from model to "actress" status.
