Extras: For most of you, the bonus scene starring Bree Olson from "Before They Were Stars 3" will be the best extra. Clocking in at 15:47 minutes and displayed in high definition VC-1/1080i, the scene showed then-newcomer Bree engaging in generic oral/vaginal sex and I doubt the scene had much exposure compared to her current works under contract for Adam & Eve. The rest of the extras were kind of weird in that they were not tied to this release, the 9:09 minute Behind the Scenes clearly from another production as was the 7:42 minute Strip Tease by Summer and Kayla (who were otherwise not in this movie). There were some trailers too but what caught my eye the most was a 3:34 minute session of footage taken from the 2008 AEE show where the company provided some material straight from the showroom floor of their large presence, even good old me, Don Houston, clearly visible in the background a time or two. Otherwise, the case had a true double sided cover and that was it.
Audio/Video Quality: Couples Seduce Teens 10 (Blu-ray) was presented by Pink Visual in a VC-1 encoded high definition, 1080i resolution widescreen with an aspect ratio of 1.78:1. There were no directors credited this time though I got the impression a standard crew was employed given the chat with the cameraman and the scenes appeared to be shot for release on the internet rather than primarily for this DVD, the simplistic situations generally involving one of the two leading couples picking up a "teen" and taking her home to screw. The lighting was usually flat and decent, the camerawork itself not the most flattering for the ladies but hardly the worst I've seen in the last 25+ years. The video bitrate was all over the place this time, generally hovering in the 17.2 Mbps area when I spot checked it but overall I did not get the impression that it made a lot of difference given the original intention for the footage. There were some compression artifacts and grain at times but I was most bothered by the color saturation seen in numerous areas. Still, I imagine the Blu-ray version looked better than the SD release, the amount of detail in the better lit portions proving the enhancement over similar projects. The audio was presented in a standard 2.0 Dolby Digital using a 48 kHz sampling rate and 192 Kbps audio bitrate, there being no discernable separation between the channels or significant dynamic range worth mentioning. It sounded as though the microphone attached to the camera was the manner in which all audio was recorded, the aural portions an afterthought at best.

Body of Review: Pink Visual is one of those companies I know more about from my journeys to the yearly convention in Las Vegas (the infamous AEE) than seeing their product as my tastes tend to be for different genres than they cater to. For the most part, they release amateurish looking material shot for the internet, double dipping on the revenue streams with their DVD titles. In their favor, their no-frills approach is sometimes quite interesting, often invoking a more natural feeling than the generic couplings of the usual gonzo crowd or the feature producers, fans appreciating it as more appealing from what I've seen. Their recent decision to get into the high definition market interested me though and the resulting title, Couples Seduce Teens 10 (Blu-ray) struck me as worth looking into in deeper fashion, the casting including a variety of ladies I found likeable enough to add replay value to the production, the levels of fuck for the buck pretty solid if you search out the best price you can find for the movie. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Tori Black, a major cutie who has some plans to affiliate with Xcritic in the near future, was up first in a scene where she was essentially seduced by curvaceous Devon Lee and muscular London Marcus. They played some basketball on the backyard court and ended up stripping on the living room couch, the ladies doing oral on each other and his meat pipe before he took turns vaginally boning them. Both ladies appealed to different sensibilities here, Tori to the youthful theme and Devon to the MILF/Cougar aspect of the series, some chemistry between the trio noticed in their various positions. Tori was given ample opportunity to actively ride his cock while Devon was set to more passive poses but it wasn't a bad opening scene at all and ended when his genetic juice was swallowed down by Tori, no sharing with Devon observed before the camera faded out.
Scene Two: Tatiana Kush, a pale redhead wearing a pink top and blue jean skirt, was up next as she was approached by older blond Lexi Lamour and moper Ethan Cage, at a public park. The older couple was scouting a movie location and Tatiana, as an aspiring actress, was interested in auditioning for them (at least until she found out what kind of movie was being shot). The "documentary" was described as a "high energy, very sexual" production, Tatiana's girlish curiosity invoked as they all moved to the indoor couch so overly used in the series. The tease was minimal and they interviewed her for those wanting to get down to the action, the clothing discarded before the ladies gave Ethan some head as the ladies double teamed him. There was again some lesbian action to the scene and Ethan managed to bone both gals, Tatiana getting the lion share of his pecker in some moderately active positions. There was not much penetrative sex here, at least until the second half of the production, but the women played well together and that enhanced the appeal to me enough to want to watch it more than a few times. The ending wad of population pudding landed all over Tatiana's upper torso and breasts, Lexi rubbing it in as they all agreed to give her the part.
Scene Three: Nikki Flame, a blond with a slight overbite, was up next as Lexi Lamour and Ethan Cage engaged her to assist them with their dying roses outside of an Oshman's(?) store. She went back to the house with them, took a glance at the flowers, gave some generic advice, and they rewarded her with Lexi pouncing on her inside on the couch. All three of them were on the couch when Lexi made her move too, the generic manner of the setting starting to bug me a bit. They felt Nikki up and the nervous gal played along, not saying nearly as much when vulnerable (no clothing on) but the gal clearly interested in what was to happen. Lexi began by demonstrating the blowjob and shy Nikki joined in to assist, some POV-ish footage shot before the ladies tasted each other a little, some intermittent vaginal screwing showing cute Nikki someone to look for in other productions. The bouncing on cock was pretty active and while there was no chemistry to speak of, Nikki's tight body showed me she was a good choice to place on the cover. The eventual pop shot landed on Nikki's lower abdomen and the scene faded out before much could be done with it.
Scene Four: Marie McCray, a skinny redhead with a big smile, was up next as she returned a missing dog to worried Lexi Lamour and Ethan Cage. As expected, they ended up chatting on the couch, some "getting to know each other" footage a staple of the series and a means to show a connection. Lexi was pouring it on aggressively as the shy lady leaned increasingly away from her advances, Lexi slowly pulling off Marie's clothing before showing she was not adverse to doing so herself. The ladies felt each other up and kissed a little before Ethan whipped out his cock for them to team up on, the resulting vaginal sex showing neither of the gals to be particularly into the moment. In the bigger picture, the goofy banter explaining away the presence of the cameraman was the biggest thematic problem. It wasn't a mechanically bad scene but compared to some of the other scenes, I felt less inclined to care about watching it a second or third time. The scene closed up with a titty pop to Marie's breasts, the camera fading out before anything could be done with the resulting spew.
Scene Five: Natasha Nice, an attractive brunette needing directions, walked over to Devon Lee and Marcus London as he gassed up his SUV, the cameraman and Marcus giving limited directions to her. She claimed to be 19 years old and explained how her friends had left her from the party the night before, the couple generously giving her a ride to help her save the $100 ("at least") cabby charge by giving her a ride. They made a stop at the house and ended up on a couch (at least it was a newer, cleaner looking couch, blue in color) where they got acquainted before they finished dropping her off at her place. Once Marcus left the room, Devon asked Natasha if she had ever been with a woman before, the newcomer's only real issue was the cameraman shooting the entire stripping sequence. Other than having moderately larger breasts, Natasha looked much like performer Violet Blue (now referred to as "No Name Jane" due to a lame legal effort by a writer) in her prime, fans taking note that Natasha was further along the learning curve here by far. In any case, there was the similar gal on gal action and Marcus loved drilling her tight young pussy even more than Devon's, my own taste being for the experience over youth but that was as much due to the manner in which they performed as well. The ending nut of semen landed on Natasha's chest and the scene ended the movie on a high point due to some established chemistry.
Summary: Couples Seduce Teens 10 (Blu-ray) by Pink Visual was their first foray into the high definition market (from what I understand) and while it did not take full advantage of the visual enhancements of the medium, the casting was pretty solid in 80% of the scenes and there was enough replay value to merit a rating of Recommended if you enjoy internet to DVD releases featuring newcomers. The back to basics approach generally worked for me too though and even though I wanted more variety in the setting of the sex (maybe the pool, the car as they drive along, a private nook in a park, or even the freaking kitchen counter), I cannot deny that four of the scenes seemed to work on some level. In short, Couples Seduce Teens 10 (Blu-ray) was truthfully advertised, had me as an unwanted extra in a special feature, and despite the extras being unrelated to the show itself, they added some value to the production so check it out.
