Synopsis: Lovers share secrets, intimacy, and the pleasures of the body. We hunger and yearn for the ultimate connection that lets sex, passion and all that infatuates to bind us together in an explosion of animal instincts. Let's all behave like lovers do...
Audio/Video: Playgirl's Like Lovers Do is distributed by Wicked Pictures for Playgirl TV, and is presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Full Screen format. The lighting in each scene was decent with some minor shadowing. In each scene lighting differed due to the nature surroundings of the scene especially if it was filmed outdoors and in keeping with the romantic and sensual aspect of setting. The flesh tone was realistic, clear, and crisp and even toned. The background music did not drown out the vocals of the cast on account that no words were exchanged.
Performers: Alexander, Cassie Courtland, Chris Cannon, Faith Leon, Gabriella Banks, Joey Lawford, Kelly Kline, Levi Green, Manuel Ferrara, Marco Banderas, Marie Luv, Randy Spears, Rita Faltoyano, Scott Nails, T.J. Cummings, T.J. Hart, Toni Ribas
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 Like Lovers Do 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 this time with Manuel Ferrara gracing the cover. 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 3/28/05 and as late as 06/21/07, you might find a scene or two with some male cast members that you are not all too familiar with.
Extras: There is an abundance of bonus material including a solo male masturbation scene with Alexander which did not hold my attention at all. Granted the concept of the mirror was decent but the jock strap on the Alexander wasn't working for me. As I've said before the solo scenes appeal to so many others with different taste, this time it didn't work for me.
Posing for the Camera
Behind the Scenes: Audition Upstate New York w/ Levi Green
Continuing from a previous DVD the Campus Hunk Auditions, this time showcasing Levi Green. There is nothing different here at all. What you have here is a bunch of men trying out for the Playgirl Magazine showing off their manly abilities playing football etc.
Bonus Sex Scene: Cumming of Age w/ TJ Hart & Joey Lawford
A lonely desperate housewife played by TJ Hart, seduces the grocery store delivery boy (Joey Lawford). I don't know how Playgirl got this scene to work. Lacking enthusiasm and leaving the viewer feeling totally unsatisfied. Joey wasn't the typical male eye candy for the role.TJ on the other hand fit her role perfectly as the horny housewife which many of us ladies can relate too.
Scene 1: My Secret Hiding Place - Mikayla & TJ Cummings
The scene opens with Mikayla who is wearing a white flowing dress waiting on the porch of a rustic cabin by a pond. A shirtless TJ Cummings wearing tight jeans makes his way over to her.TJ from afar has a nice body and you can see his nice broad shoulder and tight ass. Everything is fine until the camera person cuts away from the couple repeatedly. First off what's with the cutting away from watching TJ going down on Mikayla over to the bird?? I counted at least six times that they cut over to the bird while positions were switch by TJ. Who wants to see the bird sitting on as tree limb when you have two very good looking people outside of as cabin trying to get busy? Trying to watching the couple is almost impossible with the constant cutting away to the bird sitting on the tree limb. After she sucks him off for a bit they go straight into doggie style with the pop shot going on her ass. TJ didn't look all to interested in what he was doing where as Mikayla put more effort into the scene.
Scene 2: Perfect Elixir - Rita Faltoyano & Scott Nails
Working long hours at a bar doesn't leave much for a social life as Scott has come to find out. Scott is cleaning up at closing time when Rita sneaks in through the side door and is busted by Scott. Rita walks up to him and admits that she has come to see him. The little black dress she's wearing makes it very difficult for him to send her away. Rita uses her womanly charms on Scott. Scott lifts her onto the bar and does some teasing of his own through the black panties. Having her right at the edge, he slides the panties over to the side to eats her out. Rita does some teasing of her own with her mouth before sucking him off. They go at it in doggie and missionary with the pop shot going on her stomach. Very nice scene... I liked the chemistry they had together.
Scene 3: Casablanca - Cassie Courtland & Randy Spears
In a previous PlayGirl DVD which I reviewed Playgirl did their own version of "Gone With the Wind" and it was great! This time Playgirl went and redid one of my other favorite classics with one of my favorite male performers Randy Spears they even went as far as using the line used by Bogart about the gin joints. The scene starts in b/w with Randy sitting at the bar having a drink. He spots Cassie entering the bar wearing a trench coat and hat trying to hide her identity from him. The two do not waste any time at all and start fooling around at the bar. Cassie is wearing just her bra and panties under the trench coat making it very easy for Randy to do his own special kind of detective work. She sits on a bar stool spreading her legs letting Randy's finger roam inside of her aimlessly. Randy and Cassie heat it up some more when they give the other some oral before he takes her from behind up against the bar doggie style. Randy and Cassie finish off the scene in mish were he unloads on her stomach.
Scene 4: Short Story - Gabriella Banks & Manuel Ferrara
Gabriella opens the scene with her sitting at her desk writing down her deepest fantasies. She imagines herself in a white room with Manuel Ferrara then again what woman wouldn't want to be alone in a room with him!. Manuel does what he does best in seducing every part of her body with his hands and mouth. They engage in some quick foreplay on a white bed with clean white sheets. Gabrielle then mounts up to ride his cock and is then flipped over for Manuel to take control bringing them both to an earth shattering orgasm.
Scene 5: Jail Cell - Marie Luv & Toni Ribas
In a poorly lit jail cell, Officer Ribas holds Marie's body down against a table and precedes to feels her up. He removes the handcuffs and rubs his nightstick up and around her petite yet well toned body. Both incredibly turned on by the fact that Marie struggles a bit it before giving in and sucks him off. Toni then turns the table on Marie and goes down on her. This scene is very intense as they both go at it rather rough in both mish and doggie style ending with the pop shot going on her ass.
Scene 6: By the Lake - Kelly Kline & Chris Cannon
In typical romantic night under the moonlight sky Kelly and Chris give into their nocturnal desires. The fact that this is a night scene gives it a very romantic and sensual air about it. But being that Chris rushes through on the oral action on Kelly and vice versa doesn't s core it high on arousal points with me. Alot of it is filmed at a distance taking away from it. Like the perfect gentlemen Chris seduces Kelly and makes love to her on a long tree branch by the lake. Kelly take the lead by riding him RCG at first then Chris grabs her in standing doggie unloading on her ass.
Scene 7: Raunchy Ranch - Faith Leon & Marco Banderas
Marco is outside in the hot sun chopping wood. Faith brings him some water the first time around and likes what she sees. She is after a different type of wood as she comes back to caresses his sweaty body. Marco leans into her to kiss her. He props her up on the hood of an old pickup and eats her out. Faith then reciprocates and sucks him off . Marco then grabs her in a standing doggy and mish up against the truck. He pulls out and unloads on her stomach.
Final Thoughts: Playgirl's Like Lovers Do caught my eye by just the cover alone. Playgirl /Wicked Pictures are well known for that. With Manuel Ferrera was on the cover made me think I was in for one hell of treat. Being disappointed with the extras, the rest of the DVD made up for it. I did have a few issues with a few of them especially the opening one with the constant cutting away to the bird( see pic below) and the rush job Chris Cannon did in his scene with Kelly. Another thing that bothered me was the fact that the person behind the camera didn't pan in close enough to show the performers giving oral to the other. Putting all that a side , the sexuality between the performers came through nicely with the exception being the first scene where to me it appeared that TJ Cummings isn't to fond of giving oral to the ladies. That seems to be the on going issue I seem to be finding in the majority of porn not just only with Playgirl. With 6 out of 7 scenes that I enjoyed I still can say I can Recommend It for a lazy day watch with your significant other to enjoy with the room filled with candles.
