Regarding the subject title of this thread, the common sense adage, "You can't judge a book by its cover", has always struck me as sage advice for any potential buyer.

Marketers are happy that some people will purchase a video sight unseen, based solely on the cover pics. Sex, or sexiness, sells, and has for some time.

Marketers are all about ADVERTISING products to increase sales, and they only make money if the product they're advertising is purchased! For this reason, advertisers & marketers have to be SHARP, and they need to know in advance what their consumers WANT!

I remember when actress Julia Roberts first hit it really big (it was in 1990, right after "Pretty Woman" was released), the VHS tape for 1988's "Mystic Pizza" was re-packaged with Julia Robert's name & picture dominating the box cover, as if SHE was the star of that particular film (she wasn't!) But the marketers understood that SHE was a hot property, which is why they did what they did!

I guess what bothers me about adult-video marketers is that THEY seemingly know full-well what the customers want to see more of, but it's sometimes painfully apparent that the directors, writers, & producers of these same videos DO NOT! The cover illustrations for so many adult videos look exceedingly HOT, until you begin watching them, and realize that once again you've been led down the garden path...

Maybe it's time for the directors, writers, & producers of girl/girl videos to give their marketing people an actual say in what it is that they're producing. I mean, how could they possibly make it worse? My guess is that the advertisers just might have some creative ideas, especially regarding that whole lost concept of erotic intros. And, if not, well at least the video itself might resemble somewhat better what's on the boxcover more than is currently the case?

I do agree that the designer creating those covers does have more idea about what is actually erotic and not.

Thankfully unlike 2007 today most of the covers do match the erotic nature of the content contained within those covers, no pun intended.

One of my favorite DVD boxcovers of recent years. Here are my three reasons why:

-You know it is going to be strictly g/g because the showcase model is Vanessa Veracruz, who is a girls only adult star.

-All four of Vanessa's scene partners are on the cover, so you know who exactly is in the movie by name, face, and body.

-Even though there is no kissing or sexual act on the front cover, it is a very enticing pose.

So yes, I do consider this cover to be an excellent one. NO misrepresentation or artificial gimmicks to sell the video. What you see here is what you get.

While I've learned (the hard way) to avoid purchasing girl/girl videos based solely on the quality of the DVD cover-pic, it's still occasionally very difficult NOT to order a particular DVD, especially after looking at some of the beautiful cover-pics on a few of these new releases!

LLV has just announced a slew of new videos for sale, three of which IMMEDIATELY caught my eye, if only because the marketing people who designed & created their box-covers are especially talented and/or creative. They are:

The Lesbian Experience: A Soft Touch - Digital Sin

The cover-pic shows two very pretty young blondes, Blake Eden & Kenna James (I'm not sure which is which) - anyway, one girl is standing closely behind the other, her hand lovingly caressing the other girl's incredibly nice, curvy little butt! This video is directed by Eddie Powell, whom I know nothing about. A part of me wanted to purchase this one the second I saw it, but experience has taught me that perhaps it would be better to wait until somebody writes a customer review, and I can get a better assessment regarding Mr. Powell's approach on the creation of quality-lesbian-erotica.

Lesbian Girlfriends (4 Hour comp) - Elegant Angel

Experience has taught me over the years that these four-hour compilation videos can be a mixed bag, quality-wise; still, this one's got a really NICE cover-pic showing two beautiful nude-young hotties, one girl with her hands possessively gripping her hot blonde girlfriend's gorgeous derriere! Very nice! On the negative side is the porny blurb accompanying this release: "These ladies are primed and wet, ready to attack each other's pussies as if their lives depended on it!" Yeah, thanks for the heads-up (aka: warning), guys! I'm going to pass on this one (for now!) But that's still an AWESOME-HOT DVD cover-pic!

Her First Milf 21 - Doghouse Digital

I haven't watched all that many videos from this particular company, but SINCERE KUDOS to whomever they've got designing their box-covers, as I REALLY wanted to purchase this one if only to see if it lives up to that highly erotic cover-illustration, showing what appears to be a fully-clothed dominant older woman (Lady Dee) sitting in a chair, with a very pretty younger girl (Karol Lilien, wearing short-short-shorts that do a great job of showing off her sexy legs) posed at her feet! There's an implied sub/dom element here that may-or-may-not actually accompany their scene together! If it's actually there, you can bet that I will be ordering this one soon enough!

- Well done, marketing people!

Ah, ya got it backwards, dude, Lady Dee is the one on the floor, with Karol sitting in the chair behind her. They're all Euro girls, if that makes a difference to you.

Anyway, there is a short discussion thread about TLE(huh, what an odd coincidence): A Soft Touch in the General Discussions section, along with a link to the trailer, if you'd like more info. The trailer is in 1080p, so it's nothing but a series of disconnected images on this laptop, but you may have more luck. It sounds more like a romantic/soap opera type of movie than something you'd be interested in, but it never hurts to check it out. Eddie has done some interesting work, but he can be uneven. Oh, btw, Kenna is the one with her hand on Blake's bottom.

That Elegant Angel comp does look intriguing, and I often like the way they shoot their content, so I may give it a shot. Hard to see how they can go wrong with Mia and Jessie, but just like life in Jurassic Park, they can find a way.

If I was going to rate DVDs strictly by their covers, I would have to give the award to Viv Thomas/Met Art. On Lezlove's Home page alone, I find three Viv Thomas covers that have, what I think is, sensational cover art, that continually draw my attention to the titles. My top three picks would be:

"Don't Stop"
"REM"
"Sex, Lust, and Videotape"
(with "Discreet Service" being a close fourth)

(BTW, I agree that Mia Malkova and Jessie Andrews on the cover of "Lesbian Girlfriends" makes for a hot cover, as well--and that was a great scene that they had together in Elegant Angel's "Girl Crush 3")

>Lesbian Beauties 16: Interracial - from Sweetheart Video, directed by Dana Vespoli. The intriguing cover-pic shows a black girl closely positioned behind a beautiful white girl, with her arms holding her possessively. I very much LOVE black/white interracial lesbianism, but the description of this scene as written on the box simply mentions that "personal trainers and rivals Kira Noir and Kelsi Monroe go head to head in a turf war, and battle it out till the very end..." I'm sorry, but that sounds WAY TOO MUCH like two girls shown arguing for five minutes about who's the better trainer before then engaging in everyday lezzie-sex. Maybe somebody will write a customer review and clarify what actually happens.

I thought it was a disappointment. This is the first Sweetheart IR video where I can say I didn't like any of the scenes. I'm sure there were people who liked it, but I just found it boring. It's sad that Dana can direct herself in kick-ass scenes like the one she did with Jessie Andrews (one of only two times I actually liked Jessie Andrews in anything), but gets all safe and boring when she shoots IR.
