XCritic's Advice: Skip It

Toni English
CAST: Adajja, Ava Vincent, Dale DaBone, Farrah, John Decker, Michael J. Cox, Monique Demoan, Olivia, Randy Spears

The Main Event
Originally released in 2000, No Strings is a masterpiece of bad acting, in a story that's a little too complex for an adult flick. The story is so complex that I don't think it's even really told in full by the time the movie is over. Annoyingly, the ads that are normally at the front of the disc are part of the main feature, taking up the first seven minutes. There's not much to the menu (which simply says Vivid and No Strings) and there are no scene selections. This disc isn't cheap, so you can't even call it a budget line. For a Vivid DVD, it was a real disappointment.

While on the phone with a friend, Monique gets her pussy eaten out, but once the call is done, she takes control and sucks Spears' spear with delight. A reverse ride follows, and is filmed almost entirely in a crotch close-up, showing the cock cramming in all its glory. Switching to some standard missionary banging is all it takes to get Spears to pop his cork, which he does, all over her tits. A short but hot scene.

Farrah kicks off the second scene with a by-the-book blowjob, with plenty of eye contact and hand work. I just didn't feel the passion was really there, despite some ball licking. It just seemed a bit robotic. DaBone returns the oral favors, working her clit with his mouth and fingers, before filling her full of his pussy probe. Like Farrah's BJ, the sex is very methodical, with long hard strokes, and the rare bit of rabbit-fucking. Pounding away at her from behind is the motivation DaBone needs to get his rocks off, as he sprays down her chest with his pud pudding. This scene has some well-filmed sex, but lacks real heat.

Olivia's got a great set of tits on her, and she is nice enough to put them on display first before getting down to business on Decker's dick, in a sensual bit of oral. She trades her mouth for her mound, riding his rod with her pierced pussy with true enthusiasm. The way she rolls her hips had me standing at attention. That heat doesn't diminish when he takes her from behind, as he slams her honey pot just as hard as she rode him. Sliding to the backdoor just makes the whole thing that much hotter, ending with a liberal coating of cum on her ass. A very hot scene, and the most varied until this point in the movie.

A pair of lesbians renting a nearby guest house puts on a show outside, getting into some sapphic hijinks. Adajja is a bit too old, with freckles and badly enhanced titties, but that doesn't matter to Ava, who bangs her bejeweled twat with a lengthy blue double dong. Afterwards, it's Ava's turn to have her well-trimmed, yet still hairy fun factory tongue-fucked. Unfortunately, at one point, the party stops as Adajja pulls a hair from her mouth. Lovely. Ava gets a dildo in her love nest too, but it doesn't stay there long, as she takes it out and uses it on Adajja, creating a weed-whacker sound with her pussy piercings. It's a duel to the drip from there as the two girls assault each other's cunts with their weapons of choice. If you're into lesbian scenes, this one's pretty active, though Adajja is not very attractive.

Formerly enemies, Monique and Cox become lovers, with Monique smoking his peace pipe with gusto. He's just as excited to lick her lips, chowing down on her box in a wonderfully involved oral romp. Down on the floor, he replaces his tongue with his cockm and plows her almost hairless hole. A spoons-style screw gives a great view of the action, and is trailed by a hard bit of doggie-style dicking. A less than impressive cum shot brings things down a notch, but the sex was hot.

The color and detail on this video is quite good, with every coupling clearly shown. Occasionally, the lighting will become inconsistent, thanks to a very bright light used for crotch shots. Overall, this flick looks beautiful. The sound, a standard 2.0 mix, is good as well, mixing a cheesy music track with clear sex sounds.


It seems like there's only one extra, but that extra is over an hour of bonus scenes. Included are a scene from The Agent, with Tawny Roberts and Eric Masterson; Kira Kener and Nick Manning from All About Kira; a clip from Before I Wake, with Mercedez and Nicole Sheridan; Dasha and Dillion Day in Implode and Ticket to Ride's Briana Banks and Bobby Vitale. It's a nice bonus, but the lack of scene selection options is very annoying. Isn't that why we own DVDs?

Concluding Words

This is a very conflicting DVD, because the main feature is decent, and the extras are pretty good, but the presentation is terrible. No specific menus, no scene selections...for a Vivid DVD, this was a huge let-down. Considering the other discs on the market, this one doesn't make the grade to be worthy of your time or your fast-forwarding efforts.
