Scarborough may well be the Quentin Tarantino of all-male vids (without the violence). Friction oozes sensuality and, like its namesake, delivers an unpredictable plot. Just as Tarantino is out to just make a good movie, Scarborough is out to just shoot great sex. This one also has a romance going between studs Blade Thompson (thankfully making a comeback) and Jake Andrews (whose new moustache look on the boxcover is enough to sell videos itself).
A showering Jake tries to awaken his slumbering lover Blade, naked in bed, and they mess around just before Blade's plan takes off. Jake's slapping it in and butt-pumping culminates in a rewind-worthy cumshot.
Worthy of note is Scarborough's new dude Rick Drake, who's setting a new standard in porn. The scene of Drake in the shower, watching himself in the mirror as Jake sneaks a peek, is both nasty and tender. Jake does some serious kissing, which shows that tenderness and raw sex can go together. Scripted by Craig Latker and videotaped by Marc Fredrics, Scarborough seems to have compiled a hardhitting A-team.
