Cast: Samantha Ryan, Kurt Lockwood, Jessie Capelli, Charlie Laine, Sarah Blake, Avy Lee Roth, Nick Manning, Holly Wellin, Alex Devine, Byron Long
Non-sex roles: Dick Smothers Jr., Billy Glide, Talon, Brittney Andrews, Chi Chi LaRue, various others from the 2005 AEE show in Las Vegas
Length: 110.5 minutes
Date of Production: 2/1/2005
Extra's: The best extra of the bunch was 11 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage. The cast had a chance to show their silly side and there was a fair amount of nudity. Most of it centered on Avy Lee Roth and Nick Manning but I even saw some notable people (and acquaintances) from the last AVN show in Vegas (wish I could have gone myself). The other extras included trailers and a photogallery; making the package still light on extras in my book.
Audio/Video Quality: Welcome To The Valley 6 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio it was shot in by director Johnny Diablo. I thought this volume looked the same as Volume 5 as there were no compression artifacts to be seen and the overall lighting levels were solid. There was a bit of grain at times and some of the scenes looked better than others but the fleshtones looked good and the composition of the shots appeared to have some more thought given to them (on average at least) than the earlier volumes in the series so I was once again happy. The stereo English audio was about the same with the music given more space than the vocals but otherwise the audio was about average.

Body of Review: As a fan of playfully made porn, I rarely get to see much creativity used these days since companies tend to focus too much on the short term profit margin rather than building up a following by going the extra mile. This is especially true in comedy porn so I was pleasantly surprised to see the latest release from Nectar Entertainment, Welcome To The Valley 6, this week in my review pile. Like Welcome To The Valley 5 and earlier volumes, the premise was a parody of Nectar itself, using Dick Smothers Jr. to portray marketing genius (and CEO) Sean Logan as the harried owner of the company trying to deal with an employee (Billy Glide) at the 2005 AEE show in Las Vegas. In many ways, the general premise is better than the concept used by a similar series put out by Digital Playground, although each of them have had their weak points over the course of their series. This particular volume had a lot to like with an excellent cast, superior technical values, and some real heat so here's a breakdown of the scenes to give you an idea of what took place:
Scene One: Samantha Ryan, a very lean blonde with an all natural rack, was up first on a couch with studly Kurt Lockwood as her partner. While she spent too much time looking at the camera, the energy levels were high between the couple and I thought they shared some chemistry to boot. They each gave the other some oral, with her displaying solid talents (she even rimmed him), and him giving some good head too. The boning was fun to watch in the cowgirl position (where she was aggressively enjoying the ride) but it slowed down a bit when she then made him do all the work. If you like them built for speed, she should be on your list of gals to watch for. It ended when she swallowed the part of his load that went into her mouth.
Scene Two: Jessie Capelli, the hotty on the front DVD cover, was up next in a solo masturbation scene that started off with her stripping on a stage. Her look was slightly exotic and the fishnets (and other accessories) enhanced her appeal as she pumped and grinded her body to the music. While I was left wanting more, I relished the experience of seeing her in action, something all good porn should offer the jaded masses. It was hot enough that I'd have licked the glass dildo she used clean although I wish the vocals were better too.
Scene Three: Charlie Laine and Sarah Blake were up next in a shower scene that used some interesting tease footage. Both gals are well known for the manner in which they entice the camera as well as their lean bodies and seductive demeanor so it came as no surprise that they nearly had me rubbing out a load as Charlie's schoolgirl outfit competed for my attention with Sarah's wet action before they got together. After some heated rubbing, licking and sucking, Sarah donned a strap on dildo to bone her pal in a very pleasing scene.
Scene Four: Avy Lee Roth, a curvy brunette that has really shown a lot of promise this past year in numerous scenes, and boy-toy Nick Manning, were up next in a scene on a bed in a hotel room. She initiated the dirty talk (usually, he does this) but he of course had to add his own bit of talking after going down on her fine pussy. Her oral was better done than his as she jerked him off and otherwise tore into him before giving the most energetic ride of the show. While I thought some of the other gals looked more attractive (I like blondes better in general), she was easily the best sexually as she actively participated in the entire scene; refusing to lay back and let him do all the work. It did end in the vaginal creampie advertised on the front DVD cover, as she pushed it out into a glass (but didn't consume it). Yum!
Scene Five: Holly Wellin, a slightly harsh looking blonde, had a solo masturbation scene with a vibrator after teasing the camera in her "I 'heart' my rubber duckie panties. The scene was short and I think she would have benefited from a better make up job (and/or more sleep), it was still fun to watch as she tore into herself with the purple pal.
Scene Six: Alex Devine, a sort of generic looking porn gal with an ample set of breasts, and huge Byron Long were up last in a scene on the couch. There was no introduction other than the two of them trying to get each other off as they engaged in some okay foreplay before she slobbed his knob with a vigor reserved for some of the best cock suckers in the jizz biz. This was the advertised interracial scene and while it couldn't match the heat of Avy's scene, it was still fun to watch, right up until he jerked off onto her face. She did swallow but it seemed a bit tame in most ways, losing points for lack of creativity.
Summary: Welcome To The Valley 6 was easily a step up in many ways from the last volume and I'm going to rate it as Recommended for the attractive cast, the playful manner in which they boned and otherwise got one another off, and the truth in advertising as described in the above scene descriptions. It still had some rough edges and I still wanted to see more from some of them but the replay value was decent and the comedic bits were very cute this time, making me just want a few more extras to boost up the rating. I hope that Nectar decides to shoot another "season" of the show but time will tell since fans can be as fickle as reviewers when it comes to porn. In short, Welcome to the Valley 6 offered a solid package of fuck for the buck with plenty to like, over and over again.
