Audio/Video: Behind Closed Doors is distributed by Wicked Pictures for Playgirl TV, and is presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound in Full Screen format. The lighting in each scene was decent with some minor shadowing. In some scenes, the lighting was so overpowering, t even with use natural light it still looked very blurred. Each scene lighting was different due to the nature of the scene and trying to keep with the romantic aspect of setting. The flesh tone was realistic, clear, and crisp
Cast: Haley Paige ,Roxanne Hall , Vanessa Lane , Victoria Sin , Dani Woodward , Tiffany Taylor , Selena Silver , Sarah Blake , Shannon ,Randy Spears, Jean Val Jean , Reno, Brad Baldwin, Grant Michaels , Johnny Castle, Dante , Niko, Alexander.
Overview: Playgirl's titles seem to have a hit or miss quality about them. Not much changes with each release nor does the cast. Playgirl's Behind Closed Doors is an erotic and alluring soft core DVD made for first timers and women that do not enjoy the hard core genre of the adult movies. They will find this title more than suitable for their taste. Even the cover of the DVD is made specially to attract a woman's desires at the point of purchase. Playgirl gives you the typical romantic get-together without the intense circus acts that are a turn off for so many. Dating back to as early as 7/20/04 some of the scenes have male cast members that I am not familiar with .
Extras: There is also abundance bonus material including a solo male masturbation scene with Alexander which you can either pass or watch. The Solo Sex Scene w/ Alexander had the New York City skyline as its background but this young man just didn't do it for me. I was intrigued by the fact that he was facing a large, uncovered window in his apartment facing the Manhattan skyline showing just how much of an exhibitionist that he is. Even after getting himself so worked up there was no clear cumshot at the end.
BTS: from First Vacation with Niko & Selena Silver
-- sponsored by --
In an outdoor scene Niko speaks about his scene and what he looks for in a woman. He shows off his body showing how strong her is by doing some push up with Selena on his shoulders . He goes on to say about what he enjoys the most about being a Playgirl model and his life in porn. You can see and red more about Niko in my review for Playgirl's Addicted to Niko
Bonus Sex Scene w/ Reno & Tiffany Taylor "Getting Off the Record"
Reno plays a hunky, Italian soccer star that gets up close and personal with a young, blonde reporter who is interested in getting to know him in more than just one way .Its the typical locker room scene with them going at on the locker room bench.
Scene 1: Day in the Park w/ Sarah Blake & Jean Val Jean
Sarah answers a "help wanted ad" for a nude model to pose for a male artist Jean Val Jean. She meets him in the park and she removes her robe to reveal a small white corset with garter belt. She takes a seat on the bench opposite from him for a bit as he begins to sketch her. One ting leads to another and they are making love on the larger of the two benches. The one big problem with the scene was the poor editing and being that it was shot outdoors the bright sun light reflected back into the camera. Other than that it was decent.
Scene 2: Turbo Love w/ Dani & Brad Baldwin
The mechanics assistant Dani does more than just bring lunch to her man Brad who's getting dirty while working on an engine. Brad is very sensitive and in touch with her needs as he as they are making out and getting undressed in the garage. During the foreplay I noticed that Brad wasn't to into going down on her at first then changed his method in satisfying her orally. The rest of the scene was decent yet there wasn't a decent amount of chemistry between them.
Scene 3: Fetish Chains w/ Victoria & Grant Mathews
Victoria Sin plays the dominatrix role and she has her man Grant Michaels all chained up in a smoky, gritty, industrial warehouse setting. She takes him off the chains, then quickly gets out of her outfit keeping only her boots on. Victoria has her way with him and when done she chains him back up. I like the D/s idea but.. The video was far too fuzzy. I know it's supposed to be a dream sequence but being that you couldn't see what was going on, didn't raise any heat level for me.. Better lighting would have made this one hell of a watch!
Scene 4: Dirty Laundry w/ Vanessa & Randy Spears
Doing the laundry always seemed as a chore rather than a welcomed task. In this next scene we have Vanessa in a poorly lit Laundromat all alone. In comes Randy Spears and doing the wash takes on a totally different role. Randy and Vanessa get wrapped up in themselves as they go at it on top of the washings machines where he take her through the entire spin cycle. This is one of the better scenes, I like the idea behind it and the concept of screwing on top of the washing machine for added fun.
Scene 5: Morning Love w/ Roxanne & Alexander
This next scene is somewhat slow, and a bit on the boring side. Roxanna and Alexander wake up and hop into the shower together for some water playtime. It gets nice and steamy once they really get into some nice foreplay in the huge shower. It gets even hotter when he takes her from behind with the water hitting them both.
Scene 6: Haley Gets a Jump w/ Haley &Dante
Haley's SUV has broken down on a country road in the middle of a hot, humid day. She seems to be having trouble finding someone to give her a hand. While she sits and waits for help her thoughts run away fro her and she is daydreaming about the hottie that is coming to get her with the tow truck. Her day dream has her banging the daylights out of Dante on top of his tow truck with the sun beating down on them. This one is another one of the better one to enjoy.. plus I think the ladies have had similar day dreams like this one ... *eg*
Scene 7: Riding Stick Shift w/ Shannon & Johnny Castle
On her way to see her man.. Shannon has some fun shifting gears and thinking of the naughty things she will be doing to Johnny when she get her claws into him. Once there the gloves come off with Shannon taking control. Johnny being the gentlemen as he is doesn't let her do all the work. He makes sure that she is equally pleased orally before he bring to an orgasm. The one main flaw was that you could see that Shannon wasn't into Johnny and there was no chemistry or passion between them. Her faking the moaning was a dead give away.
Final Thoughts: There was nothing going on Behind Closed Doors more like Sex In Public Places. There is more action going on outdoors and in other places couples could and would get caught than behind closed doors. Out of seven scenes only four are worth watching. It seems that Playgirl TV went into its vast collection of old content and decided to use it. What disappoints me is that time wasn't taken when it came to the editing and the audio portion making it difficult to watch with all the changes in background music. I dislike it when a company that thrives itself in making porn for the ladies does such a shabby job in several key areas. Playgirl's Behind Closed Doors gets a " Rent It" from me..
