D'Salvo's Perceptions
Pure Play

Director: D'Salvo

Date of Production: 06/17/02

Length: 1 hours 41 minutes

Genre: Feature, Comedy

Cast: Alissa, Sandra Russo, Julia Taylor, Jessica May, Michael (Mick) Blu, Nicole Kiss, David Perry, Franco Roccaforte, Alberto Rey, Luisa Forti

Video/Audio: The video is presented in 1.33:1 full frame color. The image is a pretty nice transfer with very little grain. Darker scenes, however, show more artifacts than others. The audio is Dolby Digital 2 channel and is crisp and clear. The dubbed dialogue isn't all that bad. Sure it's not great, but I've heard worse.

Extras: Photo Gallery, Cumshot Recap, Trailers

The DVD: Pure Play's DVDs have generally well built. The look of the menus vary from sleek to pretty plain or sometimes amateurish. This one is pretty plain. It's easy to navigate though, so that in itself is a definite plus. Where this and most of the other Pure Play releases fail is in the chapter category. Breaking the sex scenes down is just one of those things everyone should be doing.

Review: Alex (Michael) is a promising advertising writer on his way to becoming Creative Director for the firm he works for. Arrogant and cocky, he has his ass handed to him on a platter when a rival company's creative director (Jessica May) jumps on board at his firm taking his promotion away. The story turns into a fairy tale of sorts when Alex receives an amulet that allows him to hear women's thoughts in addition to seeing them nude! With this new insight into the minds of women, Alex has a growing chance to finally get that promotion he's been after.

Scene Breakdown:

Scene 1: Alissa, ?
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Anal, Facial
Positions Used: Missionary, Reverse Cowgirl, Doggy

Earlier in the day Alissa was told by the head honcho himself to reevaluate what she, as a woman, can do for the firm. Later that night, she returns to his office to showcase her talents. Both of them take a little time to warm each other up with some oral demonstrations before moving into the main presentation of straight and anal sex. They top it all off with a facial finish.

Nice scene. The set, the lighting and the sex all combine well to make a sexy scene.


Scene 2: Sandra Russo, Michael Blu
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Anal, Facial
Positions Used: Spoon, Doggy, Reverse Cowgirl
Sandra Russo

-- sponsored by --

Down on his luck and drunk, Michael wishes for a "fairy" to help him out. In walks a fairy like no other, the sexy Sandra Russo shows up to lend a helping hand, mouth, pussy and ass then gives him the thing that will help out his workplace woes.

Hot scene! Sandra looks a little more like a super hero than a fairy godmother, but who cares? She's hot! I've tried to wish for this before...it doesn't work.

Scene 3: Julia Taylor, David Perry

Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, PTM
Positions Used: Doggy, Reverse Cowgirl, Cowgirl, Standing Doggy
Julia Taylor

After seeing the powers of his new "tool", Michael decides he needs to visit a shrink. Julia is starting to administer some physical therapy to David, but it's cut short when Michael shows up. After a brief, but successful session, Julia and David get back to their own therapy. A little head for both of them moves into a sexy straight sex romp that ends with a sticky chest for Julia.

Hot scene! Julia is just too sexy.

Scene 4: Jessica May, Michael Blu
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, PTM, Facial
Positions Used: Doggy, Cowgirl, Reverse Cowgirl
Jessica May

Putting their rivalry aside for the time being, Jess and Mick get to know one another on a very personal level back and Michael's place. Mick takes a chance at being a gentleman by offering up some oral servicing to Jessica first. She repays his kindness a little later before getting to some nicely done vaginal sex in various positions.

Hot scene! Well shot and edited, this is probably the sexiest scene of the movie.

Scene 5: Luisa Forti, Alberto Rey
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Anal, Facial
Positions Used: Missionary, Doggy, Reverse Cowgirl
Luisa Forti

Luisa tries to cheer up Alberto after he receives a phone call from his lawyer saying his current wife won't sign divorce papers. Her attempt to produce a happy man begins with some head and proceeds through vaginal and anal sex with a cum covered face end with not one, but two cumshots.

OK scene. After the excellent scene before this one, the editing for this one makes the scene feel too jerky and rushed.

Scene 6: Nicole Kiss, Franco Roccaforte
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Facial
Positions Used: Reverse Cowgirl, Spoon, Missionary, Doggy
Nicole Kiss

Michael's sister and Franco use Michael's apartment for some fun time while he is out. Oral is once again the appetizer before the main dish is served up in some tasty positions. The final course is a messy face for Nicole who continues sucking before the scene changes.

Nice Scene.

Scene 7: Jessica May, Michael Blu
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Facial
Positions Used: Missionary, Reverse Cowgirl, Doggy
Jessica May

Once he finds out what has happened because of his actions, Michael rushes to Jessica to explain everything to her. The apology and explanations take a back seat for some more one on one time for these two budding lovebirds. The action is a lot like their previous scene.

Hot scene! Once again, these two produce a sexy scene.

Overall Thoughts: This was a nice surprise for me. I wasn't sure what to expect when I originally saw it, but decided to take a chance. The main thing that I enjoyed so much about it was the fact it is so much more relaxed than a lot of the stuff being made today. Another thing that sets it apart is the fact it is one on one scenes for the entire movie. The scenes with Jessica and Sandra in them are the ones that stand out in my opinion, but for the most part all of the scenes are all pretty good. The worst thing about the DVD is the lack of extra chapter breaks.

Simply put, Perceptions is a well done comedic feature that will please many couples. Recommended.
