Cast: Michelle B., Hailey Paige, Vincent Vega, Carmen Luvana, Angela Stone, Tommy Gunn, Jassie, Julie Night, Tony Tedeschi, Reno, Trinity, Samantha Ryan, Brittany Andrews, Sal Correlli (last two in bonus scene only)
Non-sex roles by: Bianca Pureheart, Sir Nik
Length: 112 minutes
Date of Production: 2/1/2005
Extra's: The best extra for most consumers will be the S&M bonus scene from Erosity between Brittany Andrews and Sal Correlli. This was far harder than the material I've come to expect from Adam & Eve, including old Sal being as submissive as could be when she slammed it home in his ass. I think fans of the cast will really the 14.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature a lot too since the cast had a chance to describe their roles. Carmen appeared to be in the BTS feature more than the movie itself but that was simply my impression since she wasn't the true lead of the movie. The other extras included some trailers, and a lengthy photogallery.

Audio/Video Quality: The Perfect Secretary was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Nick Orleans for Adam & Eve. The movie looked a bit saturated in terms of colors since the lighting was lower than I prefer but the slightly soft focus didn't really hurt the visual aspects of the sex in most cases. The composition of the shots was generally complimentary to the women and although the lower lighting did cause some grain, it wasn't as bad as I had expected going into the movie (director Nick Orleans has a different style than I consider optimal). There were no compression artifacts observed and the other flaws weren't so bad as to get in the way. The stereo audio was a decent mix of vocals and music, although the music was kind of droning and minimal, and I could hear everything they said. The dynamic range here was kind of weak since it usually sounded like the cast was in a well but I didn't mind that too much since the visuals were generally interesting.
Body of Review: One of the contract performers I rarely get to see these days is Carmen Luvana. She's the Puerto Rican bleach blonde with implants that uses her throaty vocals and playful attitude to generate heat in a manner that makes me realize the wisdom of Adam & Eve employing her a few years back. Since she's locked into a contract that limits how much she does, every release of hers is considered special by her group of fans. Her latest movie is The Perfect Secretary by director Nick Orleans for Adam & Eve. The movie itself was actually led by hot young cutie Hailey Paige, a gal that couldn't stop masturbating at work so she is sent to a consulting group that cures her of her dilemma. Yeah, it bugged me that Carmen wasn't the lead but this seems to be a practice dating back to before I started watching porn and Carmen's two scenes were pretty good even if she wasn't the star of the show. If this sounds interesting to you, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms were used a lot:
Scene One: Michelle B., everyone's favorite British blonde, and cute lead performer Haley Paige, were up first in a scene with Vincent Vega in the office. Michelle took lead of the sexuality in that she partnered up with him as Haley masturbated off to the side. Michelle's oral skills have long been accepted as top notch and she even gave a titty fuck but that was all she did; a shame since she is considered one of the best lays in porn. Her dirty mouth helped give the scene a bit of passion but that was all there was going on here.
Scene Two: Carmen Luvana, the attractive blonde contract star on the front DVD cover, cute and lean Angela Stone, Hailey Paige giving another solo performance as she watched, and muscular Tommy Gunn, were up next after Carmen and Angela warmed one another up on a desk top. The licking and rubbing the gals did was passionate but it wasn't until Tommy joined them that the scene started to really kick in (in terms of chemistry and energy at least). The two primary gals of the scene were good in that they kept working one another over as he boned them and if you like oral with straight sex, you'd be hard pressed to find a much better scene in the movie.
Scene Three: Jassie, looking super hot, Julie Night, sporting dark hair and also looking very sweet, and Hailey Paige, looking like the freshest of the bunch, were up next in another all oral scene where the tease footage was nice but the oral was better. The guys for the scene weren't exactly the best in the business but Tony Tedeschi and Vincent Vega aren't the worst performers I've seen either. The oral was very solid with Julie giving the best head of the three but all the gals actively inhaled as they licked and sucked anything coming even close to their mouths. I wanted more from the scene but thought for an all oral act, it was very well done.
Scene Four: Carmen Luvana, in the advertised "first" anal scene of her porn career, gave it up while Hailey Paige was bound with red rope. Hailey was almost completely a bystander this time but Carmen really shined with Vincent Vega giving her the high, hard one. The oral was fair, with Tony Tedeschi getting a little too, and the anal wasn't all that great but fans of Carmen's probably don't care that they can find dozens of better anal performers out there since she's the reason most people would buy this DVD in the first place. Hailey did some pissing and a little sucking but she mostly watched the very vocal Carmen take the slowly porking penis inside her backside. There wasn't much energy this time but it wasn't as lame as some folks had suggested on the internet either.
Scene Five: Hailey Paige, finally getting to strut her considerable sexual skills, had a scene while Michelle B. was limited in terms of action as they took on Reno and Tommy Gunn in the office. Michelle was left to masturbate this time (another weak use of her keen abilities) but Hailey truly shined as the best fuck of the show with some solid oral, playful vaginal and passionate anal like I'd have expected of Carmen. The guys dropped their loads on her ass and chest but the strong point was in how well she actively participated. Yum!
Scene Six: Trinity, Julie Night, Samantha Ryan, and Hailey Paige then finished off the movie by engaging in sexual activity with Tommy Gunn and Tony Tedeschi. Hailey seemed to now be in charge and the other gals all tied up and vocally asking for some meat as they masturbated or squirmed about. The lead gal of this scene was the lovely Julie but the others contributed too with some lesbian licking, decent blowjobs and hard slamming screwing to make this a very good scene too. The weakest thing about this scene was how lame the pop shots were but only a handful of people are that much in the closet to care.
Summary: The Perfect Secretary wasn't perfect in all ways but it had enough strengths to warrant a rating of Recommended if you aren't overly picky. Carmen's scenes will appease her fans and Hailey Paige could easily become a big name in porn if handled properly so the passion, the energy, and the chemistry she showed in her many scenes might be enough for those of you not needing circus act sex to pick this one up. The technical values were mixed but I enjoyed most of the sex here and the cast seemed to as well. In short, The Perfect Secretary was fun to watch with enough fuck for the buck to keep you busy awhile.
