As viewers of Nick Orleans' Virtual Sex know, he is in love with optical effects. But we're not talking the cheesy, irritating, Video Toaster claptrap that too often just torpedoes sexual pacing and induces headache; we're talking a sophisticated array of lushly-colored, imaginative, symbolic armature of sexual imagery that brings to mind the best of Ken Russell. Orleans, like Blake, Ninn, Grant, and Zen, links steamy, beautifully-staged sex with these images — here, outer-space images — that give the flimsy moving-between-two-worlds motif of this video visual substance and an added fillip of sexual verve. The thin story centers on a CD-ROM disc, which is an object of worship and source of male power in the misty "Underworld", but when the disc goes missing into our world, it becomes a vehicle for both sexual fantasy, and for moving between the two worlds to help free the women of the Underworld through sexual empowerment. Yes, it's a more-than-a-slightly pompous theme,- and mystical psychobabble that would delight Jim Holliday abounds,-but, aided by intense sex performances, excellent art direction, and (an essential for this style of vid) topnotch music, it all works.
Sarah-Jane Hamilton is superb as the carnal centerpiece. Clad in a clingy russet gown, her initial foray into CD-ROM-wired fantasy has her paired with statuesque Sally Layd for some silver bullet action, followed by Sarah-Jane lavishing oral attentions on Adam Voughn, ending with a facial for the fiery redhead.
Sarah's partner, blonde buxom, full-lipped newcomer Olivia, finds herself clad in a white catsuit, which she sheds for a fervid armchair bout with Joey Verducci, performed side-by-side with Chase servicing Rick O'Shea (in bizarre black-and-white makeup and court jester garb). The two "earthgirls" share an intense girl/girler with the telepathic aid of the disc, which inspires them to aid the female Underworld slaves, via an orgy, of course, whose highlight again pairs Joey and Olivia in jaw-dropping doggie action. The end of slavery is celebrated by Santino Lee drilling Isis Nile in an anticlimactic windup.
Despite that Olivia's outstanding features (blonde, big fake boobs, a curvy rather than long graceful torso) don't match my personal preferences, her loose-lipped, breast-heaving style made a real impression on me — she's a performer to watch for. Sarah-Jane is more effective here than in a similar role in Immortal Desire. And this video, which spent an inexplicable length of time finding distribution, confirms Nick Orleans' place in the first rank of adult directors.
