A very appealing spanking and paddling video with some sex.
What appears at first blush to be a montage of paddling and spanking outtakes from other Close-Up productions turns into a very hot video for refined tastes. If spanking and paddling lights your fire, you will most likely enjoy this video... but be patient. The best sections are toward the end.
The video opens with a sequence called "The Dreamer," showing a delectable Brad Davis in T-shirt and jock strap lounging on his bed flipping through a catalogue of S/M videos (this sequence was reminiscent of the way 1950s TV shows built advertising into sitcoms). His "dreams" show us Ryan Wagner, spread-eagled and ball-gagged, getting a smacking from husky Anthony Gallo. In another of Brad Davis' dreams we see round-assed Kyle McKenna on his knees, with a collar and wrist cuffs connected by a chain, getting a solid pounding from Matt Bradshaw. McKenna is always a delight, but this segment is too abbreviated. Finally Brad Davis ideates himself into his dreams. A mystery man arrives to deliver a good spanking and dildo-fucking as our boy groans happily. While the opening sequence has its moments, the effect is somewhat disjointed.
In the next segment, "The Salesman," apparently recommended by a Close-Up fan, an overeager insurance salesman Chas Carlton keeps calling hunky Mark Anthony to sell insurance. Trouble is, Anthony is in the shower and pissed about having to keep rushing out to get the phone. Repeated denials of interest in insurance only produce a visit to the apartment by the tenacious Carlton. Anthony answers the door (towel wrapped about his waist), expresses his irritation and gets the salesman handcuffed to an end table. Out come the scissors, off come the trousers, and, in a delightful moment, Anthony pours ice-cold spring water onto Carlton's tightie-whities as a prep for a good hand-spanking. Carlton loves his punishment and when later uncuffed, delivers an appreciative blowjob and receives a solid fucking.
The final sequence, "The Leatherman," has a direct, ball-grabbing appeal. Wiry master Mondo phones exquisite Connor Davis, ordering him to be prepped and ready when he arrives, and when he does we find our bottom hooded, gagged, wrists bound behind the back, and legs secured to a whipping bench (how, exactly, Davis got himself into this secured position is somewhat unclear). Davis has a simply beautiful ass and he gets it thoroughly and convincingly paddled by Mondo in one of the video's best scenes. Mondo follows up with some hot wax on the blistered bottom, and the two finish with some sucking and fucking.
Close-Up gives us what every S/M enthusiast wants: a beautiful bottom strapped down for the punishment he so richly deserves and so eagerly awaits.
