In "Vanity," acclaimed actor/director Seth Gamble returns to the world of sophisticated visual erotica he's depicted in such stylish cinemacore releases as "Money" and "The Red Room." Produced by Axel Braun and featuring an A-list cast including AVN Best New Starlet Blake Blossom, "Vanity" holds a darkly sensual mirror up to the situations women can face when excessive desires to be loved, admired or idolized by others manifest in relationships.


It is easy to see how a release titled Vanity could be mistaken for an actual vanity project—especially when the sole male (Seth Gamble) directs AND gets all of the girls.

Fortunately, that is not the case here. Rather, Gamble allows his female performers total control of the visual narrative in a slick, sophisticated manner.

Blake Blossom starts things off making intense yet playful POV contact with the viewer as a great soundtrack accompanies her striptease. When the song ends, all that can be heard is the white noise susurrus of her movements intermixed with staccato blasts of vocalized pleasure as Blossom really takes matters in hand by fingering herself in explicit close-up to a moisture-laden orgasm. But she wants more—and gets it by using Gamble as a tool to give her even more pleasure, and throughout the multiple positions—from oral to pounding to a final pop above the puss—Blossom shifts her direct eye contact to Gamble, at times appearing to be fighting a full smile, but consistently giving him demanding grins of pleasure.

Through varying degrees, this continues with similar scenes featuring Maddy May, Charlotte Sins and Ryan Reid. May, starting out as a restrained misbehaving slave, flips her role and adds an extra twist by being especially demanding of Gamble to be rough and indirectly subservient, while at the same time remaining aware and accommodating of her overpowering predilection to be moderately yet firmly manhandled.
