The Films
Taboo reigns supreme in the first title on this double bill of smut from famed adult filmmaker Carlos Tobalina. MY SINFUL LIFE follows Danielle as she recounts the stories of her adoptive parents constantly having sex with her and then her leaving home to live with an aunt to go to college and do something for herself. She ends up working in a high end brothel where the kink factor is upped ten fold.

There's nothing to complain about here as the 83 minute runtime is filled with skin, sex and $$$ shots. The little twist at the end makes the entire thing feel even dirtier. Having sex with your adoptive parents is one thing but MY SINFUL LIFE goes beyond the beyond! It's amazing how these stag films take the raunchiest material and manage to make it hot and interesting without a second thought of how morally wrong it may be! Oh and I can't forget to mention how fantastic the opening and closing songs are in this, pure gold!

The great theme songs continue in LAS VEGAS GIRLS where a rich Texas oil tycoon hires a pair of private investigators to find his daughter who has runaway to turn tricks in Sin City. While there the detectives talk to every prostitute they can find and usually end up in some sort of sexual encounter, an orgy more often than not, or at least watching what is going on. Do they find the girl? Or do they find each other? Do we really care about anything other than the damn near endless group scenes filled with gorgeous people? No not really, but it's an interesting little flick with fun inserts of early 80s Vegas in all of its colorful neon glory and then there's the countless other... ahem... inserts.

LAS VEGAS GIRLS doesn't have the raunch factor that MY SINFUL LIFE has but it doesn't need it. If you want your sex free of any awkward dinner time conversations LAS VEGAS GIRLS will be the title for you.

The Audio & Video
A really nice DVD presentation from Vinegar Syndrome as they continue to prove themselves to be exploitation royalty. The 16x9 widescreen transfers maintain both films' original aspect ratios and have really good PQ for 30+ year old pornos. Colors are vibrant and there's a nice sharpness to the picture while there's only minimal wear to the source material with a bit of speckling as well but I am fully satisfied with how these movies look. The audio is in great shape with both films using English mono tracks that sound full and clear. There's no distracting background noise or any damage such as crackling or popping to speak of.

The Extras
A trailer for each film is included as the lone extras

The Bottom Line
This is yet another winning double feature from VinSyn and has a little bit of something for everyone.
