There is a breed of female porn consumer that wants to ogle the beefcake that appears in adult product, and they tend to do so pretty covertly in your store, for the most part. This is a DVD you can push across the counter to those women with confidence. It's beautifully shot, interestingly edited and women who may have inhabited your gay section previously in search of porn that focuses on hunky men will be in bliss.
Couples are another story, though. The camerawork is so catered to showcasing the men during the scene that tease shots of the women's bodies and some of the penetration shots are lost and, well, some men and women might not appreciate the copious amount of attractive male faces in sexual bliss shown here.
The women overall are props, set dressing and seemingly deliberately forgettable in a lot of ways, which is disappointing. This might have been done to make some women feel less intimidated by the action on screen, but the approach also gives the female viewer less to identify with.
Julian's intro scene with Cynara Fox is wonderful with water glistening off them in the shower. The camera pans off Julian's shoulders, torso and frame, consistently showing him looking his best. His closer with Rhiannon Bray is good with his cock gleaming as he shoots his load over and over in three looped segments.
A thick music track and occasional slo-mo editing messes with the heat for any viewer, but this is still a noble concept .This reviewer looks forward to seeing what Inpulse produces in the future.
