Cast: Ariana Jollee, Ariel Alexus, Mark Ashley, Candace Von, Marco Duato/Banderas, Jade Russell, LT, Odessa, Derrick Pierce, Naomi Banxxx
Length: 129.5 minutes
Date of Production: 8/5/2006
Extra's: I would have liked the masturbation/tease scenes by the ladies the best since they were advertised on the back DVD cover but none were present. I appreciated the 29 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that wasn't advertised on the cover (this is a first, huh?). There was a combination of interview footage, photogallery material, and more sex; making it quite worth checking out in my book; though I wish it spent more time with the sexual material. There was also a photogallery, a set of pop shots from the movie called Hot Shots, a double sided DVD cover, and trailers to shows like Pass the Creme, Ass Factor, Sick Girls Need Sick Boys, Fine Ass Bitches, Double Parked, Off The Rack.

Audio/Video Quality: Dressed 4 Sexcess was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by veteran director Vanessa Blue for release by DVSX. I know she's made numerous movies for Mercenary Pictures that have met with critical praise but I can't say that I've seen many of them in the recent past (though some are supposedly enroute to me at this writing). This time, she had good lighting that led to minimal grain and video noise; while not as skillfully made as a few of the previous directors at the company, the movie's scenes were well within the usual parameters for a decent rating. The composition of the shots was a bit rough at times but some care was given to at least try and make the ladies look their best. There were no compression artifacts although the black levels weren't as accurate as they could have been if you're going to watch this on a high end set up. The audio was presented in a 2.0 pulse code modulated (PCM) stereo, that was okay for the vocals as well as the tease music at the front of the scenes but not particularly distinctive in any major way.
Body of Review: Vanessa Blue has long been a hotty worth paying attention too, typically directing movies under her Domina X alias and performing as Vanessa. As I recall, she has roots in the Houston area (Beaumont?) but the curvy hotty shows that everything is bigger (and better) in Texas, drawing huge crowds this past January when I asked her for a butt shot (look them up at My 2006 Photo Collection). Now that she's free of Lexington, she has worked for several companies, her latest being at DVSX in a small title called Dressed 4 Sexcess. The idea is an interracial title with all the ladies wearing lingerie to enhance their ample curvature before having sex; a noble undertaking given the appealing cast. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Ariana Jollee, an incredibly talented award winning hotty, Ariel Alexus, the curvy gal on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, and Mark Ashley, were up first. Ariana fantasized about making out with Ariel as her dark skinned pal was outside attending to her chores. This led to a masturbation sequencethat included squirting before the lesbian tricks began. Ariel seemed to like the oral attention and Ariana went and got mark to assist with the meat puppetry. The ladies blew him in alternating fashion and then the gals took turns riding his cock vaginally. I liked Ariel's curves a whole lot but Ariana was clearly the better rider of the two here, even doing anal as though born to it but all aspects of the scene reflected their comparative skills too. It was a great scene to open with though I wish the ladies were closer in terms of skill levels thanks to the way it was shot. Ariana dominated throughout the scene and Mark complied as he tapped both of them, ending with a facial to Ariel's face that surprised her. There was good chemistry, a nice mix of experience levels, and minor criticisms aside, it was a solid opening scene for the movie.
Scene Two: Candace Von, another meaty gal that I'd like to "meat", was up next in sexy lingerie that barely covered her ample sample as Marco Duato/Banderas watched her. She was cleaning by the pool outside and caught him peeping on her, putting on a tease show for him as a result. If you like naturally tig old bitties, she'll be one you want to check out but her ass was worth a few loads too, friends. She then came inside and started sucking him off in the bed, showing that she earned her curves the old fashioned way, watching him grow inside of her mouth rapidly. He then did some titty fucking before spreading her legs and diving into that sweet pussy of hers. They tried several positions and the cowgirl related ones allowed her to most actively ride. It ended when he rubbed out a load to her breasts; a modest load that she asked for but nothing like I've seen him lose in the past.
Scene Three: Jade Russell, a white gal with some decent curves of her own, was up next as she teased in a black & white corset with matching thong, with LT tentatively controlling her with his television's remote control (a funny bit happened when he hit the wrong button and ended up with her in dominatrix mode too). Physically, she wasn't exactly my type but she seemed to crave his cock and he always seems ready to snack on a gal so they were a match made in Chatsworth to say the least. He may not be the biggest guy in porn but he worked her over well enough, pounding her pussy in several positions before she reciprocated with a bit of active riding on her own. She never lived up to her full potential in that sense but I'd hit it at closing time if given the chance. He spewed his load onto her abdomen but her mechanical dirty talk weakened the scene more than a little bit.
Scene Four: Odessa, a thick gal with some nice dance moves, was up next in a small bedroom converted into a mini-strip club; complete with pole, as she gave Derrick Pierce a lap dance with all the trimmings. The build up could've used some more polishing up but she seemed equipped with DSLs that knew how to work a cock, probably from lots of experience. He returned the oral favors as he went down on her, licking her clam until she was ready to ride. She gave a decent ride with a lot of active bouncing and some care given to show off her form as she did so, making me appreciate her as much as the gals in the first scene. It ended when he jerked off to her chest and face but she seemed so out of it that I wondered what happened to her.
Scene Five: Naomi Banxxx, the attractive gal in the blue lingerie on the front DVD cover, was up last as she masturbated in the living room while fantasizing about something she saw in her magazine (maybe a picture of director Vanessa blue). Peeping tom Derrick Pierce jerked off while he watched her, sneaking in to see if she wanted some help, using force to subdue her in a manner that most companies tend to shy away from these days. He dominated her and felt her up by the couch as he orally worked her over, then giving her his cock for good measure. She sucked him fairly well and moved on to riding him actively with her vagina. I got the impression that she was used to a larger cock inside of her but she treated him well before he cut loose and dropped his load on her body.
Summary: Dressed 4 Sexcess was not the best title I've seen from director Vanessa Blue or DVSX but it showed a lot of potential worth keeping tabs on given her entire body of work. I wished she actually participated in a scene or three but we take what we can get these days and she did a solid job on her end of things. The cast wasn't as well selected for chemistry and enthusiasm as I would have liked but the extras, the fun factor and strokability combined to make Dressed 4 Sexcess at least worthy of a Rent It if not even more for fans of the ladies. Vanessa has an eye for capturing scenes but a lot of her best work relied on the cast being in synch with one another so I hope she gets to pick the cast next time.
