Despite typical superslick packaging and big-beef star power, this is mostly a ho-hum release from the house of John Summers. The connecting device for a series of otherwise unrelated vignettes is a purported look inside the erotic fantasies of newcomer and headliner Vladimir Correa. While hunky young "Vlad" (surely the most unlikely star moniker of the '80s) strips and heats himself up, a breathy voice-over narration segues into fairly pedestrian encounters between established gayporn idols like John Davenport and Chris Thompson.
Vlad is certainly worth looking at -photography in his segments is excellent, and the guy hasn't got a bad angle - but viewers may grow impatient to see him actually do something. In one scene he supposedly imagines his ideal partner, who turns out to be straight superstar Francois Papillon, billed as Jean- Jacques LeBon. Will gay viewers really go for cameo appearances by touch-me-not hunks who won't even share a kissing scene with another man?
The video climaxes (finally) with Vlad's rendezvous with tattooed muscleboy Cole Taylor, who isn't exactly Francois Papillon but nevertheless elicits some breathtakingly acute passion from our star. This segment is dynamite - and please, no jokes about Vlad the Impaler.
Hopefully, Vladimir Correa's next appearance will concentrate more on pleasing and less on teasing the audience.
