Extra's: The best extra for me was the 13.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature with the cast and crew. Most of it consisted of sex footage seen in the movie from a different perspective. There was also a bonus scene from the movie Desiree with Stephanie Swift and Colt Steele, some trailers and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as originally shot. The visual flaws were intentional much of the time here with weak lighting causing grain, video noise, and over-saturation as well as fleshtones looking bizarre more often than not. The artistic approach can work if done properly but it was not handled well this time. The less said the better here. The audio was presented in the usual stereo English but it was not mixed well, had varying (bad) music, and while it wasn't as bad as the picture, it wasn't the best I've seen from Adam & Eve.

Body of Review: I've always said that every porno has an audience by virtue of cast, genre, or types of sex and this even applies to some of the lighter versions of releases. Adam & Eve generally shoot for a couples market, a market that actually has a whole lot of potential since so many people are total perverts like aficionados like myself. Their latest release, The Panty Drawer, was a bit weak on many levels, especially the technical ones, but here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast:
Scene One: Exhibitionists: Carmen, Adam & Eve's contract performer that was on the front DVD cover, and Allysin started off a lesbian scene on a strip club dance floor, going down on one another and getting cheers from the crowd, before allowing Joey Ray to join them. Most of the action was oral but some straight boning took place too. I liked the lingerie and thought the gals looked nice but the energy was somewhat lacking at times.
Scene Two: Face Sitting: Monica, a curvy blonde that has a look I want to know better, sat in a chair as she teased the camera. It looked like she added some more purple streaks to her hair (a lot of other performers have followed suit) but I didn't care if she was bald when I watched her getting warmed up. Her partner must've been Dan (the only guy I was unfamiliar with) and he took her orally as he fingered her through her panties. They did some oral, especially with her sitting on his face, but the screwing was very short-lived and weak.
Scene Three: Hose Show: Taylor and Sabre, both brunettes with curvy bodies, and muscular black Byron had a stylish scene on a stage after the gals warmed up together. This was one of the weaker scenes for me, due in large part to the special effects but the standard positions and sex acts applied if you're a fan of the cast.
Scene Four: Skin Tone Club: Carmen and Stephanie, a couple of blondes with attractive bodies, started off the scene with some rug munching as they posed with lingerie. They were joined by Eric and did some PTM as Carmen rode him pretty hard. It wasn't a bad scene but the sex never achieved half the heat it could have and the limited energy suffered as a result.
Scene Five: Total Immersion: Pason and Maya, a study in contrasts as Pason was tall with reddish hair and Maya was short with dark hair, had some lesbian action on a table as they wiggled around in hosiery that looked like ninja slutwear. They were joined by muscular John after getting warmed up and the sex included the usual oral and straight. It was one of the better scenes of the movie.
Scene Six: Fashion Shoot: Aria, Sabre, Ana, Eric, and Joel had an orgy at a club in front of a lot of people after the gals modeled some lingerie. The scene included the hardest forms of sex, including some vicious anal, with Ana and Aria vying for the hottest woman of the movie title. It was a tossup for me as I think both were fine as heck and all of their lingerie was bone inducing.
Summary: The show was mostly a bunch of weak scenes that were technically deficient so I'm going to rate this one as a Skip It. I like many of the cast but each of them has been better elsewhere and the sex here just didn't justify buying second-rate material tossed together. I've seen a lot of decent titles from Adam & Eve and have enjoyed many other scenes with this cast but this one wasn't a DVD I can suggest getting unless you're fixated on panties and weak sex.
