Janine is one of the pillars the current Vivid empire was built on. This video was produced as a combination road tour/interview tape highlighting Janine's dance act with her then-partner, and reported girlfriend, Julia Ann. As porn's answer to concert films like Truth or Dare, this is an interesting, if more choreographed, look at two of porn's most famous blondes. The disc features Vivid's usual broad palette of extras, but spread over two disc sides, which keeps the picture crisp and clean for most of the disc.
Once upon a time, Janine and then-gal-pal Julia Ann were not only a frequent on-screen (and supposedly offscreen) couple, they were also the dance duo "Blondage." When they had finished tearing up strip clubs all across the country, Vivid released Blondage to capitalize on the act's high-profile success. Equal parts dance footage and sex, the video is only moderately successful as a porn feature. The disc itself also leaves something to be desired. While it has all the usual Vivid extras, Vivid often skirts the edge when compiling its DVDs, balancing picture quality with additional features. Blondage was certainly bitten by the compression bug, as several darker scenes have moderate pixelation problems.
Excuse me as I proceed to recommend multiple AVN nominations for a fine piece of erotica that just misses a five "A" status.
"Blondage" is the name of the hottest dance duo in the country, Janine and Julia Ann. Businessman Steve Drake is about to open his own club and wants the ladies to work for him, but alas, they are under contract to another club run by Marc Wallice and Tom Byron. Drake enlists fiancee Leena, another one of the hottest performers in XXX today, to help break up the act so he can sign at least one of the girls.
The opening dance between the flawlessly sculptured Janine and the lovely curvaceous Julia Ann is electrifying. The two are perfectly synchronized and drip sensuality and fire. I have never seen Janine so awake and alive. She prances around the stage soaking in the audience's obvious appreciation. The girls are beautiful, they know it, and they are having fun.
During the gradual shedding of their clothes, Janine licks Julia Ann's pussy and then leads her around by the hair, pushing her face into her (Janine's) ass. They simulate aggressive fucking, and pour hot candle wax onto each other. There are great shots of Julia Ann's ass during this, and Janine's thighs tremble in anticipation as the wax drips down onto her pussy. Even a few willing customers get in on the session as Janine pours wax on their chests. This scene should easily be nominated for a best tease scene. It is truly incredible.
The girls go back stage and continue their antics, pouring champagne all over each other, eating pussy with reckless abandon, and enjoying a bit of 69. This is a great scene, but is arguably short on hardcore. Still, it's wonderfully shot and highly energetic.
Leena auditions for Wallice and Byron, and an incendiary sex scene ensues. She strips for the boys and probes her snatch with a dildo until they join her for some doggie and head — each fellow taking his turn at each end. Wallice fucks her missionary, while Byron jerks off, and then Wallice goes backside for a smokin' anal sequence. Leena holds onto a pole with one leg in the air, lapping at Byron's cock, while Wallice pounds her from the rear. The fellows finish with a double pop on Leena's sweaty, lust filled face. You got it: another nomination worthy sex scene. Leena is burning and her fans will love it.
After another "Blondage" dance number in which a lucky customer gets flogged, Leena has an intense dressing room encounter with the girls. She and Julia Ann do 69, and Janine rams Leena's pussy with a dildo. Later, as Julia Ann eats Leena, Janine fantasizes about wanting a cock (don't we wish) as she stuffs electronic balls up her quim and masturbates furiously. It's a supercharged girlie scene and (dare I say it?) nomination worthy.
A sensual scene between Julia Ann and Drake with lots of kissing and touching plays counterpoint to all of the preceding intensity. Julia Ann begins to consider leaving Janine.
Meanwhile, Leena moves in on Janine at a "Blondage" rehearsal that Julia has missed. Here is where the pacing abruptly falls apart. Suddenly things work out far too quickly. In the space of barely a minute, the girls are about to break up, Leena turns on Drake, Wallice pounces on him, and the girls are back together. Talk about running out of time!
The girls throw in one more dance number including leather, and use of a bridle. The dance is great, of course, but what we really needed was one more sex scene. Even another girl/girl would have worked, but this time it's more tenderness, aiming to soothe the emotional wounds. The absence of a great plot/script, and the feeling of being short on sex in favor of one too many dance routines cause this tape to miss a five "A" rating. However, this project has superior direction, videography, editing, and for the most part, good music. Nominations should follow for these technical aspects as well.
I highly recommend this refreshingly well-done video. It will be one of the ones to beat in January
