Cast: Isabella, Felecia, Kylie Ireland, Sindee Coxx, Kelsey Heart, Azlea Antisia, Zana, Jewell Marceau, Brittany Skye, Billy Glide, Chloe, Alexandra Silk, Keri Windsor, Chelsea Blue, Jackie Daniels, Aria, Monique Alexander, Gina Ryder, Taylor St. Claire, Alexis Amore, Alexis Fire
Length: 124 minutes
Date of Production: 1/30/2004 (compilation only, not the scenes)
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as the scenes were originally shot over the years. The grain and minor video noise were present in most of the scenes, especially the older ones, but the slow motion photography was the most bothersome aspect of the picture. There was also a problem playing the DVD in my Toshiba home DVD player but it looked okay on my computer. The audio was presented in the usual stereo English with limited dynamic range and stereo separation but aside from some moments that sounded hollow, it wasn't too bad on the ears.

Body of Review: Compilations are one of the most talked about genres in porn these days. Some are much better than others and the old way of just tossing a bunch of scenes on a DVD in hopes that some sucker will buy it are surely coming to an end as consumers wise up and decide to expect more quality in their porn. The latest such release by Adam & Eve is Strapped a series of ten scenes that all had a strap on dildo used, mostly between women. If you like toys being used on your gals, check out the following breakdown of scenes by cast:
Scene One: Isabella and Felecia, dressed up in some high-tech metallic bras and tons of makeup, had a futuristic scene in a dark room. Neither really turns me on much these days but I think they had fun together licking, sucking and using the strap on dildo.
Scene Two: Kylie, looking hot and curvy, and Sindee, looking interesting in a black wig, had an outdoor lesbian scene with Sindee dominating the cute Kylie. There was some hair pulling and spanking but most of the scene was the same type of action you'd expect.
Scene Three: Kelsey, an attractive blonde, and Azlea, a curvy brunette, were next up in this parade of pussy, sharing an outdoor scene that was on the tender side. Most of the action was oral but there was some of the obligatory strap on dildo action too.
Scene Four: Zana, as a dominant gal, took charge of Brittney, Jewell, and Billy as the trio were in some old fashioned masks. It was the most hardcore scene of the show with Billy providing some meat to the gals and a technical DP on Zana being the focal point.
Scene Five: Chloe, in a scene from No Regrets (I think) had a scene with Alexandra Silk on a couch. Each of them are vocal-queens, yelling as they get off in all their scenes, and it didn't take long for the plastic dick to tap these chicks when they strapped it on after some minor oral sex between them. Lesbian sex is always good between two gals who really like sex with women and this scene was no exception although they've done better elsewhere.
Scene Six: Keri, a lean blonde lesbian from way back, and Chelsea, a brunette that never shies away from the salty taste of clam in her mouth, had an erotic scene together that used slow motion photography to enhance the action (well, not me for but some of you enjoy it) as they ate their way to orgasmic heaven. The strap on dildo action seemed almost like a let down after that but they were quite capable with the toy and I thought the scene was okay.
Scene Seven: Alexandra and Jackie were up next as the couple enjoyed some time together on a couch. Jackie dove first, getting Alexandra off at least twice but likely more times as they did some oral together. The toy usage was up after each had their shot and Jackie sported some sweet breasts to go with her curvy ass.
Scene Eight: Aria, one of the hottest bodybuilders in porn, played a cop to Monique's prisoner in an interrogation room. I've seen this one a lot in compilations and I like the scene as it has a sense of style but acknowledge the limitations of the action since each gal has been fiery in other scenes.
Scene Nine: Gina, wearing some blue jean shorts and a tiny top, had a lesbian scene with Taylor, outside. The slow motion photography weakened the scene but otherwise I like both of the gals so I can't complaint too loudly at the technical limitations when the scene got me warm enough to take care of business. Each gal had some energy and the chemistry made it work for me.
Scene Ten: Alexis Amore and Alexis Fire had a scene with Alexandra on a couch using various toys as Luc (her husband) recorded them in action in a cigar shop (New Orleans). I believe this was taken from their travel-series and was pleasant to watch more than once, even though I had seen it several times before. In all, it was one of the better scenes of the compilation and fans of the ladies will enjoy it.
Summary: It wouldn't play in my home player but it was cute enough that when the price drops I'd suggest it as more than a Rent It for owners of newer DVD players. The gals were often cute and each scene had the advertised action including a strap on dildo, making it a fair bargain in some sectors. I thought the minimalist cover was interesting to look at and there was enough heat between the cast to appreciate watching, even on my computer. Check it out first though since very few DVD's have been a problem in my current home theatre set up.
