LookBack (VHS porn): Loopholes


As described in my weekly updates of around Feb 18 & 25 2013, I was lucky to be exposed to thousands of original VHS porn tapes from the 80s, 90s and earlier Y2K, most if which were never re-issued on DVD or simply unavailable in Canada. These little blurbs and excerpts are strictly meant as a one-shot update on some of these titles which came through my hands at one point or another.



I do not remember if I already reviewed the film "Loopholes" in these little blurbs so I apologize if this feels Like a rehash or a repost! Back in the days before the internet (!!!) or just when it was starting, I used to shop at a comic book store downtown called "Empire", which has long since died out & folded into the void of oblivion where most 90s comic shops went. "Empire" had an extra room where they kept their more adult oriented comics (read: explicit sexuality) and for a while they even had a small rack in the middle of the room where they sold a few porn VHS tapes. One day I walked in, and decided to sort through the tapes, thinking I wouldn't find anything as it was generally the case in most shops. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon "Loopholes" and immediately picked it up after seeing the case featured both Tiffany Mynx and Peter North. There was no way to know if these two performers were in the same scene but at the very least, I would have one scene of each!


For the purposes for this little review all that is important to remember is that the story revolves around legal issues, lawyers, and the backdoor (pun intended) shenanigans of a courtroom thematic, complete with cheesy dialogue and not-so subtle puns which are quite kitsch in their phrasing and delivery. The only worthwhile moments in the release are the 3-way between Tiffany Mynx (who plays a legal tender in the making called Gwen), Crystal Wilder, and Peter North, and the final scene of the feature between the ever delightful to watch Rebecca Bardoux and Peter again. So just with this in mind, I shouldn't have to specify why this tape has always been in a high place in my book! As a drawback, the North-Mynx-Wilder 3-way is a bit of a let down seeing as how there is absolutely no anal involved whatsoever even if two well-known backdoor queens are the center of the scene! But on a good note, the oral is quite delicious and it ends with a very decent Peter pop: as he's fucking Tiffany on a desk who was eating out the Y of Crystal, they start saying how much they want to taste his cum and so he pulls out and manages to give a very decent facial to Tiffany from a distance, which is quickly followed by an taste test from Ms Wilder who does some minimal cleanup on the sticky Tiffany! This has always been one of my favorite Mynx-North facials, alongside the bathroom classic face paste in "House Arrest" and the quite infernal mind-numbing facial drenching in "CumBack Pussy #9". Also a kudos should go to the facial in "I Am Desire: The True Story Of Julia Black" but perhaps one day we'll get to that. Anyhow (!!!) Peter returns for the final scene with Rebecca Bardoux in the courtroom, in which she delivers a moist beautiful blowjob complete with slight slobbering and saliva bubbles, although it lasts much too short for anyone's tastes. After some rug munching and standard pussy fuck, Rebecca gives her poop chute over to Peter's perforations which culminates in a butt pasting. Not a bad scene at all, and let's not forget that it is always a joy to watch these two performers appear together!



Originally I thought my original tape purchased at "Empire" was slightly defective. There were slight imperfections in the image, like surface noise or such, little areas of slight distortions and such. So after I made VHS copies of the cumshots only (... Shortsightedness on my part), I decided to recycle the tape by erasing over it, thinking I could find this tape in a better quality anytime in the future. Back then I was unaware of the highly volatile and quickly turned over/obsolete nature of porn releases. So of course you can imagine my personal frustration over my own stupidity of recording over the original tape, especially since I have been dreaming of re-finding "Loopholes" on DVD for well over a decade now (if not more!). You can imagine my heart skipping a few beats and its pace racing when I saw this tape on the top of a box when I moved that private collection a few weeks back. This was obviously a no-brainer and a must pick up immediately without a moment's hesitation! Well recently I decided to transfer the two Peter North scenes (Butter re-edited of course) onto DVDr and noticed something strange. Those slight analogue tape hiss imperfections were on this cassette as well. Of course the chances of this being the exact same tape I used to have were impossible since I erased that original tape long ago. So the only explanation is that when the company mass produced the release that the original master tapes had these "scuffs" and damages making such "glitches" part of every single tape release out there! In conclusion all I can say is that this one is truly one of those "I can't believe I was lucky enough to have stumbled upon this a second time in my lifetime" tapes which will obviously now remain part of my treasures analogue collection of porn now long discontinued!

  2. Daniel, the only file I have is the scene with Peter North, Tiffany Mynx and Crystal Wilder. I do not have the other scenes on "digital". I have been wishing to own this film on DVD for AGES now, but I feel lucky enough to have found it on VHS last year in that personnal collection. Thanks for inquiring!
