Cast: Maya Hills, Steven French, Carmella Bing, Mark Wood, Jaclyn Case, Mr. Pete, Bella Lynn, McKenzee Miles, Sierra Sinn, Chris Charming
Length: 157:06 minutes
Date of Production: 5/21/2007
Extra's: The best extra was the 18:02 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage by Francesca Le with some help from her husband Mark Wood (even though he wasn't credited as such, his voice readily apparent to those of us watching porn for any length of time). All the ladies of the cast were given an interview with their skimpy or nonexistent attire showing them off nicely. It wasn't the best I've seen from Francesca of late but it was good fodder for the fans of the ladies. There was also a photogallery, a pop shot recap from the scenes, and a double sided DVD cover with other titles featured on the second side.
Audio/Video Quality: Sex Fiends 5 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Francesca Le for Platinum X Pictures. The lighting was very good and that helped keep the grain, video noise, and other flaws to a minimum. The fleshtones were accurate and the camera work was as solid as ever with the composition of the shots enhancing the ladies' looks all of the time. There were no compression artifacts or significant shadows to contend with so I found the picture appealing as expected; the bitrate hovering around the lower 5 Mbps area much of the time. The audio was nothing special although encoded in 2.0 Dolby Digital English and provided in a 192 Kbps offering. With the processing done in post production aside, the vocals were seemingly recorded in monaural and the music not a big factor so it wasn't a problem but it wasn't anything worth extra points either. In all, I wasn't surprised by the quality of the technical attributes of the movie given Francesca's lengthy presence in the industry and the quality control at PXP.

Body of Review: Francesca Le might be known as a performer in BDSM fuck flicks or kinky fetish outings made by her own company but she also has directed for companies like Platinum X Pictures in the recent past. Trying out new things, she has a true love of lesbian sex that is unmistakable but also enjoys a stiffy when given the opportunity to work with a big one as well. Her latest title for the company is Sex Fiends 5, a series I last saw with John Strong's Sex Fiends 1 a long time ago. The original premise of the series was to show ladies that were exceptionally kinky and outlandish, falling short for me then as it was primarily a generic gonzo movie. Now that Francesca is in charge of the series, I wondered if it would much different, PXP showing less kink in their projects of late. If you're interested in finding out the answer, you'll simply have to read the rest of the review. That said, here is a quick glimpse of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Maya Hills, the exotic hotty on the front cover of the DVD case, was up first as she teased the camera in the messy garage; showing grease and grime on her legs as the camera gave her a closer look. The minimalist scenario had Steven French using the pay phone but Maya deciding to show him a good time nonetheless, pawing him and pulling off his clothing in order to gain access to his cock. She started sucking well enough, her fetish slowly coming off as she aggressively slobbed his knob, the gal demanding he fuck her hard as she bent over. The sex was oral and vaginal only with Maya showing a lot of energy and enthusiasm during her performance; the scene staying a bit mechanical as there was so little chemistry between them. The mattress tossed on the floor furthered the scene in some ways and she did a great job doing the PTM off his cock but as cute as she may be, the scene was only pretty good overall. It ended as expected with the population pudding gracing her mouth, the gal appearing to lick up any that missed before the camera faded out and he tossed her some money.
Scene Two: Carmella Bing, a curvy brunette wearing thigh high black boots and a tiny silver top, was up next on the couch as she masturbated while talking to Francesca (who was holding the camera). When she rolled over a bit, her red skirt was in evidence but he desire for cock soon had her sucking off Mark Wood; her tease truncated as she licked the tip of his rod while looking straight at the camera. The couple did some lizard lick kissing and he gave her ample chest a bit of play but she wanted cock gracing her pussy and ass so she leapt onto it to impale herself soundly as she pumped up and down on his dick. The way her ass cheeks rippled looked nice and nasty at the same time, the pair getting slightly rough with each other as the heat elevated between them. She let him do most of the work during the anal, even to the point of letting him rub out the load but at least they appeared to have fun working together and not relying strictly on the sexual athleticism of the first scene to make it work. Visitors to Las Vegas might know her as the Seamless billboard gal (the large breasted brunette); the owner of the club finding her quite fetching from what I recall.
Scene Three: Jaclyn Case, wearing a sheer bra and thong to adorn her sweet frame, also wore a muff buffer skirt and fishnet stockings as she rubbed herself slowly to some lame music in the living room. Unlike the others, my experience with her is limited so I found her attractive face to work for me especially well, her scene partner being Mr. Pete. The orange love seat they performed on was just big enough to give them room to move about; her pussy rubbing his cock really nicely before she slobbed his knob like an old professional. She might not have had the same levels of polish the others had but her hand to gland action was good enough that she can jerk me off any time she likes and the intermittent oral pretty decent too. Pete started banging her doggy style while spanking her ass, Jaclyn seeming to like his cock better when coated with her own juices. While one of the leanest gals of the show, she showed that being built for speed over comfort did not have to be a bad thing as she passionately worked his dick in her cookie. The varied positions showed she isn't a consistent ride but pleasing nonetheless with the scene ending after she swallowed most of his spew. I hope to see more of her as she develops her skills though this scene was still pretty heated in my opinion.
Scene Four: Bella Lynn, a very lean blond with an attractive face, was up next as Mark Wood burst inside the bathroom to find her copping a squat. They were supposedly at a party and that was the only toilet, her belt around her hips and light blue top not covering much with her panties around her ankles. He propositioned her and took a chance she wouldn't bite it off, resulting in her blowing him while on the throne. The cramped quarters of the bathroom aside, they went outside where no party was in evidence (so much for continuity) but they didn't care as they continued the oral and vaginal antics that I knew would take place next. He spanked her a few times during the scene and she really pounded herself on top of him, showing the kind of ride that would lead to most men not using performance drugs into becoming two pump chumps themselves. The gal has a lot of potential and while I think I've seen her somewhere before, she should get more work considering how she really tore up the scene. The scene ended with the mouth pop and some post coital sucking, her all natural frame getting some attention by the camera as she laughed it off.
Scene Five: McKenzee Miles, a bleach blond with a great ass and legs, was up next with darker haired Sierra Sinn; the first wearing skimpy white attire and the latter wearing a red outfit with both including a thong and fishnet material. They did some lesbian licking and made sure to include anal, leading to studly charmer Chris Charming joining them on the maroon couch. I would have preferred the gals have a couple extra pounds to play with but they seemed to like the toys and cock that started entering them after they got warmed up. I was surprised that there was anal this time thanks to Sierra but both gals did taste testing as though into it and the vaginal riding was quite energetic most of the time. I would place this scene in the middle of the pack from the flick overall but the over the top dynamic that works better for some of you than it does for me might make this a winner if that's what you like. The scene ended with the gals cumswapping and swallowing, their ravaged holes looking red and puffy before the credits rolled.
Summary: Sex Fiends 5 by director Francesca Le for Platinum X Pictures benefited by a healthy mix of females with a good combination of looks and sexual skills as well as Francesca's ability with a camera. The heat and chemistry levels were not always consistent but even the weakest of the scenes had a fair amount of replay and stroke value; lending an air of fuck for the buck to the show. In short, Sex Fiends 5 was better than Sex Fiends 1 by a nice margin although not the best presentation I've seen from the director in the past.
