In the '20s the Academy gave an Oscar(r) in the short-lived category "Artistic Quality of Production." It may be time to reinstate this category at the AVN Awards: This is one gorgeous video. Shot in Hawaii, with one desert scene that was probably shot stateside, it combines beautiful scenery with hot, albeit couples-friendly, sex. Not here the closed-eyed let's-get-it-over-with tepid encounters familiar from "couples videos," but enthusiastic couplings with people who like to fuck and enjoy what they're doing.
Thankfully, Tera Patrick is in three of the five scenes, giving credibility to her top billing and featured status on the box. She trysts with Devin Wolf twice, on a windswept cliff and under a waterfall, and once with Bobby Vitale on a Persian rug in the desert. Supporting player Julia Ann gets Wolf in a pool by a waterfall, and Briana Banks takes her pleasure with Vitale on a rocky beach. Director Joone uses every trick in the book, including slow motion and reversing the tape (If you can take your eyes off Tera in the waterfall, you'll notice the water is falling up in some shots), aided by the supremely talented Sidney Michaels at the editing controls.
