This was a good softcore video from Playboy/Image. They've done better, but this is still easy to recommend. There's a little threadbare story to tie all the action together. The tone of the video is upbeat throughout. Nobody gets mad at anybody, nobody's life is in danger, and there are no bad guys. The sex scenes were good, but I've seen better in other Playboy/Image videos. A lot of them seemed to end too soon... that is, there was no "climax", or it was so underplayed that I must have missed it. If these scenes had been longer and ended better, I would have given it a higher rating. The actresses were all attractive. Holly Sampson was the real highlight for me. She is in two scenes. Catalina Larranaga has one scene that was excellent. Amber Karney, who I've never seen before, was in several scenes, and was good. She put a lot of energy into her performances.
