In a Nutshell
- Glamorous and Groin Grabbing
One of the more intriguing things about the new digital medium is the way filmmakers are manipulating it, taking it and, in the process, redefining the language of film. Over the last decade, porn has gone from simple set-ups and occasional awkward angles to fluid POV shots and a real sense of intimacy. Ms. D’Nyle offers all this in her colorful 1.33:1 full screen image. The transfer is terrific, without many of the flaws we’ve come to expect for the new format (flaring, whiting out). The skintones are all accurate and the use of light is excellent. Overall this is good looking hardcore. As for the sound, the music is mostly the same old bump and thump, and when there’s dialogue, it is easily understood. 

Extras:
In a Nutshell
- A Basic Behind the Scenes, That’s It
Aside from the standard sex film extras – gallery, trailers, website info – we get a decent behind the scenes featurette. We watch as all the actors prepare for, and towel off from, their scenes. It is here where we learn of Ray’s new tats, Adriana’s anal fixation, and Van’s happiness with the casting. All in all, it’s informative and fun, but that’s about it.  

  

First Impressions:
There is something inherently interesting about a porn star who drops out of the limelight and heads behind the camera. The reasons usually differ – burn out, lucky in love, wanting a family, forging a future – but the most fascinating element is how the one time mattress master (or mistress) takes their on the job training and applies it to the medium. There are lots of established male performers who’ve made the jump, but when it comes to ladies, the reconfiguration seems more difficult. Stormy Daniels has had some great success, as has Veronica Hart and Candida Royalle. Now Jewel D’Nyle jumps onto the arena with her own Absolute Jewel line. And as an example of her work, the awkwardly titled For Once a Whore and Ever a Whore makes a good first impression. While the sex may not always be sizzling, it’s presented in a manner that indicates a real knowledge for the upper echelon of the business, as well as a huge potential for growth. If she stays on this path, this Jewel will definitely create some gems of her own.
 

The Sex Scenes:

-- sponsored by --

With each installment playing off the paid-to-love dynamic, this is pure prostitution fantasy, more or less aimed at the male side of the transaction. Our studs are all ready to be serviced, and there is much more balling that blowing here. In fact, the balance between oral and actual is pretty good. It helps build the eros and prepare us for some hot hardcore. Occasionally, the actors let Ms. D’Nyle down. They’re just not into it as much as her camera appears to be. Also, the premise grows a bit stale by the time Van Damage shows up to get his wiener waxed. The gals’ “I’m so slutty” routine almost always sounds fake and/or forced.

 

Scene 1: Tera Wray, Joey Ray
Acts Performed
: Fondling, Foreplay, Blowjob, Cunnilingus, Salad Tossing, Cowgirl, Reverse Cowgirl, V to M, Spooning, Mish, $hot on Tits
Score: 2 out of 5

As one of the better pairings in FOAWAEAW, you’d expect more out of contract gal Tera and poor old Joey. But something happens about halfway through this hindered humpathon. We notice that Mr. Ray ain’t disrobing, and the clothing non-optional element seems strange. Then, the couple only does female dominant for most of the scene. It also raises questions. Finally, after Joey gains sexual supremacy and delivers his derivative load, the issues seem more important than the physical interaction. We later learn that Mr. Ray has gotten some Jeanine-style body art (his entire right arm is covered in a weird leopard print pattern) and his director wanted to hide it. Maybe this explains the lax log jamming.

 
Scene 2: Candy Manson, Dale Dabone
Acts Performed
: Striptease, Blowjob, Cowgirl, Tit Fucking, Reverse Cowgirl, V to M, Mish, $hot on Tits
Score:2.5 out of 5

If you’re looking for a lady that perfectly encapsulates the FOAWAEAWdynamic, it would be Candy Manson. She looks like the kind of carnal cum-bucket you’d pick up outside a Whitesnake Concert and fuck just for a laugh. And she knows it, and plays the part to the hilt. The result is one of the better moments in the entire movie, a sex scene marginalized by the limited positions practiced. For a nearly 20 minute installment of boffing, three moves are not quite enough. Without doggy, or any ass play whatsoever, what starts out fiery grows flaccid rather quickly.

 

Scene 3: Adriana Deville, Tommy Pistol
Acts Performed
: Teasing, Blowjob, Nutjob, Salad Tossing, Spanking, Cunnilingus, Fingering, Cowgirl, V to M, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, A to M, Anal Doggy, Gaping, Anal Pile Driver, Anal Side Saddle, Anal Mish, $hot in Mouth
Score: 2.5 out of 5

Everything Scene 2 should have been is exactly what Scene 3 is. On the downside, the rather unappealing Ms. Deville and some suitcase pimp are the participants. It’s not that Adriana is ugly, she’s just the kind of skinny skank the Dirge just can’t get into. Even when she’s begging for more cock in the ass, it’s like experiencing your next door neighbor’s nookie proclivities. Still, you got to love the dumper drilling here. This gal loves shaft in the shitter and pleads for it over and over again. If you respond to her type, and enjoy some red hot anal, this is the sequence for you. If not…oh well.

 

Scene 4: Katarina Kat, Brooke Belle
Acts Performed
: Standard Girl/Girl Action including Tit Play and Cunnilingus, Foot Jobs, Grinding, 69, Salad Tossing
Score: 2 out of 5

Two girls. One old voyeur, nothing really remarkable except some intense bush burnishing. Same sex scenes do little to spark the Dirge’s desire, and yet every adult DVD seems to have one (or God forbid, more). Still, these blond bimbettes put on a decent show, especially for those who are so inclined. And luckily, our aging gentleman does little except leer.

 



Scene 5: Staci Thorn, Van Damage
Acts Performed
: Cunnilingus, Doggy, V to M, Blowjob, Deep Throating, Pile Driver, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, Anal Spooning, A to M, Anal Cowgirl, Gaping, Mish, $hot on Tits
Score: 3 out of 5

Perhaps the best overall sequence of sex on the disc, Ms. D’Nyle camera does an incredible job of keeping up with this couple. Since most of the action takes place on a kitchen island, the tenuous body positioning adds a level of suspense that really spices things up. Even better, you feel the connection between Van and Staci, much more than in any other pairing in the film. If all the sequences had been as good as this one, we’d have some wonderful XXX-citement. As its stands, it’s the exception that helps overcome the rest of the routine rule. 

 


Disco Dirge Peter Meter Rating: 3 out of 5 (Recommended)
Cohabitation Certification: Granted

If you want proof that ex-actor directors make really good XXX titles, especially female ones, look no further than the oeuvre of Ms. Jewel D’Nyle. While it’s far from perfect, and does contain a decided lack of chemistry between the performers most of the time, the skill and arousal acumen shown by this former fuck and suck fave more than makes up for it. Easily earning a Recommended rating, For Once a Whore and Ever a Whore stands as a fascinating example of an artistic work in progress. With time, Jewel will only get better, and when actors really what a good job she does of showcasing their “talents” she’ll have some sensational diddling duets. Couples will have nothing but praise for this rough but restrained hardcore. Therefore, a Cohabitation Certification is easily awarded. These fictional tramps may pledge their devotion to the world’s oldest profession, but the only thing guaranteed to exist “and ever” is Jewel D’Nyle’s career as a filmmaker.
