Audio/Video: The video is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen color. The picture quality is decent. There are some lighting issues, which is mostly due to the artistic attempt to make the picture look older. The audio is presented in 2-channel stereo and sounds very good.
Body of Review: This review is for Skin Trade, which shouldn't be confused with the Vivid release of the same name. This one comes from Bad Seed and I'll be honest, I don't really know how to describe it. It is a vignette feature that has (as described by the DVD cover) "a dark, gritty, retro exploration of LA's adult film scene". What that means exactly, I'm still not entirely sure beyond an artistic attempt at a porno. Anyways, here's the scene by scene.
Scene 1: Kelly Wells & Natasha Stone
Kelly and Natasha are attractive blondes with nice bodies. The scene opens with the girls wandering the streets. They find their way to Brian Surewood and some other dude. The girls pair up with the guys and go for their cocks. The oral action starts off with a nice intensity. The girls get really into it and include some nice gagging. Next sex comes into play. They get worked in straight and anal. It's decent stuff.

Scene 2: Laurie Vargas
Laurie is the next girl up. She is a good looking babe with a decent body and plump tits. The scene opens with Laurie working out a deal with some dude on the phone. Next we find her naked and getting her pussy eaten out. Afterwards she returns the favor and gives him a hearty blow job. The action continues with some heated sex. The dude works her at a good pace and it leaves her tits bouncing like crazy. There is both straight and anal action.
Scene 3: Sasha Grey
In this next scene the very sexy Sasha Grey poses for some nude photos. Next we find her getting fucked by some dude. He works her at a good pace and she looks great. As the scene continues there is more sex and several oral interludes. Sasha has a good energy and makes for a hot fuck. However I would have liked more oral sex.
Scene 4: Rachel Luv
Rachel is the next babe up and she is a pretty attractive gal. Her firm tits are her nicer features. We find her giving some dude a blow job. She takes a slow approach and her pretty face looks great filled with cock. Next they engage in sex and have some decent fucking. Seeing her get worked in reverse cowgirl is pretty nice. The scene includes straight and anal.
Scene 5: Sasha Grey & Lexi Bardot
In this final scene Sasha joins Lexi to fuck Brian Surewood in a trailer park. The action kicks off with Lexi giving Brian a blow job while Sasha watches from the side. Next Brian fucks Lexi. Eventually they go over to Sasha and get her involved in the action. There's a lot of girl/girl oral sex, blow jobs and fucking with straight and anal. It is a decent scene.
Concluding Words: I wasn't really impressed with Skin Trade. While the girls are all pretty cute, the action itself didn't do a whole lot for me. I enjoyed seeing Rachel Luv, but even that scene doesn't seem to have much replay value. The other scenes are average to decent. Nothing really stands out. This DVD is probably best as a rental if you like any of the girls on cast or this director.
