Vivid kicks off a new imprint, Vivid Ed, with some top-of-the-line erotic instruction from Tristan Taormino, a sex educator and writer who's also an AVN award-winning director.
Genial and gentle, she begins with a workshop, with real people. Charts at the ready, she discusses the how and why of anal pleasure. Lorelei Lee and Ariel X demonstrate with their fingers, getting warmed up and turned on.
Two full sex scenes follow. Beginner Couple Ricki White and Marcos Leon show the basic positions, what lubes to use, how sex toys can facilitate the process.
Adrianna Nicole and Manuel Ferrara are the Experienced Couple, and they'd be hot in any kind of movie. Nicole, aided by a large vibrator, has a long, shuddering orgasm in the spoon position.
As the couples fuck, tips like "Explore her ass with your mouth" pop up in text boxes and voice-overs. Both scenes, though, can be viewed without the instructions. Extras include an "Enema How To" and Safer Sex tips.
This is not for the general porn consumer, but there are viewers — couples, sexual beginners — who will find it of great value, and they will always be around.
