audio commentary with Justine Joli and the Director, various short interviews with the cast (behind the scenes), and a photo gallery
The video was presented in full frame color. The picture quality looks decent. The problem is mainly the camera work and lighting. At times the camera goes out of focus or shakes a bit too much. The lighting doesn't seem to have been done very well. Each scene is plagued with lack of light, which results with detail being hard to see. Shadowing also occurs far too often. The audio was presented in 2-channel stereo. The sounds of sex are easily heard and the background music does not interfere.
Body of Review:
Danni Ashe has been a staple within the adult industry. For many years, she has had a very successful softcore adult porn site, danni.com. By Invitation Only is the first "hardcore" release from Danni Ashe and friends. Because there's such a huge market for adult video, it was only a matter of time before the softcore pornographer jumped ship. In By Invitation Only, we get a little over an hour of "hardcore" girl on girl action that feels a bit too artsy. Fortunately, the girls all are pretty hot and very easy on the eyes. Overall, it's a decent title that fans of girl on girl action should enjoy. Here's the scene by scene.
This isn't really much of a scene. The plot of the movie is introduced, which isn't much of a plot. Justine gets an invitation and shows up. She's a bit nervous, as she's about to get banged by a bunch of chicks. After the "plot" gets set up, Justine meets her 5 playmates. Each girl gives Justine a nice passionate kiss.

A Good Scrubbing
This is the fabled shower scene. The scene opens with three girls in the shower getting hot and heavy. They wet each other down, kiss, rub, suck, and lick. Most of the attention is focused on Justine. The unfortunate part is that the scene is pretty dark and it's hard to clearly see the action. However, what you can see, there is some pretty enjoyable girl/girl fun. I liked watching the girls suck on each others breasts. Overall, it was a decent scene that could have been a lot better.
In this scene, Justine and Jana Cova watch three girls get busy. The gals are all pretty attractive and jump right into action. They open with a lot of foreplay and move into a little oral sex. Most of the action has two girls teaming up against one. Eventually a dildo comes into play and the girls take turns banging each other. One of them squirts like crazy. Overall it was a nice watch.
It's rest time and we find Justine sleeping. She awakes and walks around to find the lovely Jana Cova getting down and dirty with some other chick. The two open with some foreplay and move into oral sex and conclude with toys. This scene could have been really hot. I liked both of the girls in it, but it lacked really good close-ups. I wanted to see the girls suck on each other's tits and taste each other's pussy up close.
In this scene, we find Justine in bed. Jana shows up and joins her. The two open with a bit of kissing and Jana quickly gets between Justine's legs. There's a little more oral sex, with Java at the receiving end. Afterwards, the girls use toys of each other and conclude jerking themselves off with dildos. The scene was okay, but I would have enjoyed seeing more interaction between the two.
This is the very end. Justine has survived and now has a mask. We get to watch her put it on. Sweet, huh? Sorry no more sex.
I'm not a huge fan of girl on girl action. However, I'm never opposed to watching a few hot babes go at it. Unfortunately, By Invitation Only didn't have any of those rare scenes hot and steamy girl/girl scenes. For the most part, the action was pretty clean and straightforward, a bit too artsy for my tastes. I did think that it had some great potential. The girls were all relatively easy on the eyes. However, the major problem that I had with this release (besides its short runtime) was the technical aspects. The video quality seemed to vary, which was mainly due to camera work and poor lighting. I also feel that the lack of stripteases in each scene was a problem. Overall, I think this title would make for a decent rental for fans of girl on girl action. However, if you do not regularly tune in to watch girl on girl action, skip it.
