XCritic's Advice: Recommended

Skin Trade

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: Feature

Director: Chi Chi LaRue

Cast: Sunrise Adams, Evan Stone, Layla Jade, Randy Spears, Cherokee, Nic Wilde, Ava Vincent, Kurt Lockwood, Nicole Sheridan, Voodoo, Trevor Zen

Length: 86.5 minutes

Date of Production: 8/5/2003 (box), 12/2/2003 (credits)

Extra's: The best extra for fans of Sunrise Adams will be the five bonus sex scenes from various Vivid movies that all have her in them. This is a pleasant change for the better in terms of extras by the longstanding company and I hope it continues. There was also a short biography of the cute Texas and my only gripe about it was that it faded out with text still remaining. I also liked the 11 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage since it had a lot of little insights into the performers and the movie. The balance of the extras were the usual trailers, double sided DVD cover, positions room, two photogalleries, and spam.

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected and originally shot. There was a considerable attempt to make this look airbrushed or like film, depending on whom you talk to, but aside from some major grain and video noise, (caused by lighting I'm guessing), it wasn't bad. There were no compression artifacts that I saw but the other flaws stood out much of the time. The audio was presented in stereo English but I didn't hear any separation of the channels wearing headphones, never mind out of my home theatre set up. The mix of music to vocals was also a little skewed since the music took precedence and I prefer the groans of couples enjoying the action firsthand.

Body of Review: Sunrise Adams is one of the hottest contract stars working for Vivid in a long time. Her combination of a great body, fresh but beautiful face and sexual energy make men and women alike drool with desire (I've seen it up close and personal) so it's no wonder that Vivid has been spending some major money promoting this hotty in a variety of venues. Her latest movie for the company is Skin Trade, a movie dealing with a bordello run by Nicole Sheridan that provides men for her female client's pleasure. There really wasn't much of a story behind this vignette oriented movie but the cast was all talented and attractive, having some pretty warm sex in a number of circumstances. If this appeals to you, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast:

Scene One: Sunrise, the hot young blonde on the front DVD cover, and the mighty Evan, had a scene on a couch. They started in by kissing and rubbing each other; something I don't see enough of in porn these days. They slowly stripped as he went down on her, tasting her crotch as though it were a tasty treat to be savored. There was some dry humping before she unleashed his massive member for oral pleasuring and once ready, he boned her hard and deep. The two shared some chemistry together and while the photography seemed more suited to late night cable at times, overall it was fun to watch.

Scene Two: Layla, a blonde tart from England, and Randy, had a scene in a medical office. She was a nurse and he was the one who gave the injection (a hot beef injection) when the time called for it. They playfully toyed with one another and kissed before she blew him on the table. The blowjob lasted a lot longer than usual (at least it seemed to) and was fun to watch before he returned the favor, jerking off as he did so. She then gave him some more oral, rimming him along the way. They boned for a few minutes and that action didn't seem to be energetic but I liked the scene nonetheless. It ended when she jerked him off on her ample bosoms.

Scene Three: Cherokee was next up in this pantheon of pussy. I've enjoyed virtually every scene of hers I've watched and most of that has to do with her energy and love of sex. Her long, black hair, squeaky voice, and muscular legs added up to make her a compact treat for the eyes. She was dressed in a fetish outfit here and Nic had the honors of pleasuring her, initially orally and then by boning her. She gave a great view of her ass as she went down on him and I wished the screwing lasted longer since she seemed to get into it but while it wasn't her best scene, it wasn't bad either.

Scene Four: Ava, made to look like a prissy librarian, had a scene in a nasty looking bathroom with Kurt. Her character was super shy and he played all his moves on her to get her ready. Once into the scene though, she took over and showed she was no meek gal but a hotty trolling for trouser trout. After she stripped and teased him, he went down on her on the sink with her giving some great head in return. After that, she rimmed him as he sat on her face, something I really didn't expect to see in a Vivid movie. The sex was warm but almost anticlimactic after seeing such a cutie suck man-ass. He then rubbed out a load onto her face to finish up the scene.

Scene Five: Sunrise and Nicole were in the last scene. Trevor and Voodoo joined them in a living room on the couch in something of a mini-orgy. As Nicole and Voodoo paired off for some romantic loving, Sunrise and Trevor took advantage of the opportunity to meat each other (I spelled that correctly by the way). The gals were still playful in their approach to the sexual antics and the majority of action seemed oral in nature with everyone getting some and giving more. The sex was vaginal only but they all seemed to have a good time with one another, and Nicole/Voodoo's pairing the best of the bunch.

Summary: I liked the sex and the extras were solid with all the bonus scenes containing Sunrise in them. That kind of touch goes a long way in making this reviewer happy and while I wish the feature itself was longer, the technical aspects better and the extras were more plentiful, I feel compelled to give this one a rating of Recommended. Vivid is trying to improve on several levels and this release gives me hope that they are paying attention in some small way to what fans and critics alike are saying. Thankfully, they had a good cast to work with and one of the wackier directors in Chatsworth to helm this release, making it stand out from the pack.
