Solid if unremarkable S/M video.


This video represents a good solid effort from Close-Up, but doesn't reach the heights Close-Up has visited before.

Not for want of a good top. The first installment, with Dino DiMarco and Sweet Williams, sizzles at points. DiMarco is a hot top, impressively decked in chaps, leather cap, and other hallmarks of a leather Master. But Sweet Williams just doesn't burn as the bottom

We greet the two as Williams is already spread-eagled, balled-gagged and waiting for punishment. DiMarco obliges by torturing his tits, hanging weights from his balls and slapping him around when required. Williams twists and groans in appropriate ways, but the scene never quite gains the intensity it needs. Williams is later unchained and given a good fucking by DiMarco, and here the video takes an some electricity. DiMarco obviously enjoys his work, and Williams likes it too. But the video needs a little more imaginative camera-work - too many straight-on shots. It's only in the interesting scene that we get some itneresting angels, and those "balls-under" shots are well worth the wait.

secondcond-half with McKenna feels mechanical, McKenna is a bleached blond in this video, and he's too much the veteran; knows what's coming. Romero lacks some of the appeal of DiMarco, and the combination leaves the second half flat. McKenna is strapped to a post and gets some tit-, cock- and ball- torture. He then turns around a gets cellophane-wrapped to a post before getting flogged. McKenna just doesn't seem to have the enthusiasm he's shown in other Close-Up productions, and it's wanted.
