Audio/Video Quality: Jesse Jane: Lust was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Celeste for Digital Playground. The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release another of his more artistic attempts for Celeste, never going too far in the process as he stuck firmly to his gonzo roots as best he could under her guidelines. The lighting was reasonably solid here, Robby handling the technical matters for gal-pal Celeste, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question (though the colors were a bit more washed out than usual). The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies thanks to Joey Pulgadas at the helm of the editing board and related duties; with the DVD mastering revealing no obvious compression artifacts. The bitrate for the visuals hovered around the mid 6 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as high in resolution as previous efforts in the series. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 384 Kbps bitrate; twice that of most porn made these days, with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were almost always clearly heard here.
Bree Olson looked surprised here.
Body of Review: Celeste is the conceptual director at Digital Playground best known for eschewing the basic gonzo fare they focus on these days in favor of providing movies a bit more stylish. To that end, she provides extensive input to her cameraman Robby so he can get all the footage needed for the editors to assemble her works that tend to work best for couples. This is not to say her work isn’t strokable for men as well but I don’t recall ever hearing someone tell me Celeste’s titles are too hardcore so your mileage may well vary. Her latest title was released today and it showcased not only the most popular contract girl in all of porn but an up & comer as well; the title called Jesse Jane: Lust. The movie was a series of erotic vignettes with Jesse starring in three full scenes and the icing on the cake proving to be lovely Stoya; the “force of nature” they hired late last year. Say what you will about Celeste’s works but given her recent track record combined with the quality of these two performers alone and you have the makings of a very appealing little stroke flick. If you’re still interested, here’s a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used and this was reported to be Stoya’s first on camera anal scene:
Jesse Jane wanted Charles Dera, a lot!
Scene One: Jesse Jane, the busty little blond spitfire featured on the front DVD cover, was up first along with curvy lass Nikki Benz as the ladies took care of Ben English. The ladies wore minimal clothing that did little to hide their assets, following the man into the bedroom where they took turns sucking his dick. The scene started off slowly but soon had the gals fighting over him, Nikki’s slave attire looking nice on her (though her breasts looked like something was wrong with them). Jesse fought for first dibs on the cock and aggressively blew the man, Nikki getting her turn where she took her time to enhance the action in a more seductive manner. The gals went from knob slobbing to face sitting but the vaginal penetration was clearly on their mind as the ladies continued their rivalry by seeing who could be more active at riding the penis. There was some taste testing alone the way and it was a split call as far as I was concerned, Jesse winning for overall points but Nikki right up with her for the quality of the action. It ended when he rubbed out the load of population pudding to their faces, the gals sharing it to the best of their abilities after some post coital sucking. Yum!
Scene Two: Stoya, professing her love of scissors while wearing her tiny yellow dress, bested Johnny Sins in a contest of rock/paper/scissors before some hide and seek took place. The camera made her look almost surreal with the glowing white skin she possessed enhancing her playful nature before the game turned to sexual fun. Her coy attitude was appealing and her oral skills were given a chance to shine as she polished his pecker orally; looking into his eyes for guidance as he fingered her dripping cookie. Johnny spent far too little time going down on her in return but the two were bumping uglies so effectively that I really didn’t mind; the vaginal romp soon replaced as advertised by Stoya’s first anal scene. As she has displayed in the past, she was an active rider of cock during the vaginal parts of the scene but she became extremely passive when he slid into her backdoor. I’d have preferred they stick with the vaginal work for the most part but in their defense, the level of intensity increased so it was a good first effort; making me wonder just how many more times it will take until she is up to Belladonna’s skill level (I suspect a lot, though practice makes perfect and the line to help the lady is probably quite long). The ending pop shot covered her face, Stoya never shying away or even closing her eyes as she took the modest offering. Whew!
Scene Three: Jesse Jane, dressed in slutty attire and brandishing some plastic pistols, snuck up on a sleeping Tony DeSergio in bed during the next scene. He was startled and she laughed at him, the gal accepting her punishment in the form of a spanking that turned her on. The couple kissed and she started aggressively inhaling his manhood, using her hand and mouth in conjunction to try and suck his balls through his pecker. Rather than wait for him to go down on her, she had an itch in need of scratching so she mounted him, actively taking his cock in her cookie while bucking her hips. It was actually a little over the top for me but while I didn’t detect a lot of chemistry between them, Jesse was going nonstop as she changed positions to get some more from him. The wad came quickly to her face and the scene faded out with Jesse smiling at her handiwork.
Scene Four: Kimberly Kole, a sexy brunette masturbating in a closet, was up next when Marco Banderas donned a mask and snuck up on her. She invited him to join her and the two moved to the living room where she proved to be a handy little cocksucker herself, teasing him as she went down on his dick until he couldn’t stand it any more. That meant he mounted her in doggy style (from behind) as they kissed. He did most of the work initially but she got into the rhythm of things (when she was on top of him) and my only complaint with the scene was the way the colors looked so saturated. To my way of thinking, if I want to see a painting, I’ll go to an art museum but it did provide a different color palate to appreciate and her performance was not bad, if a bit weaker than what had come before. Her repetitive moans were eventually silenced when he rubbed out his load to her mouth, Kimberly clamping down her eyes to avoid getting plastered before the scene faded away.
Scene Five: Bree Olson, a very sexy blond that is now under contract elsewhere, was up next in the bedroom as she attempted to hide from Tony DeSergio while she was wearing her tiny white top and muff buffer yellow skirt. She was easy to find and acted in a giggling girl manner as the couple moved to the top of the bed where they kissed and pawed each other. His attempts at oral were again lame but Bree showed a lot of flair as she worked his rod over in her mouth. The splendid hummer than became an active vaginal ride before she became passive during the anal. Bree was sweet and seemed at home with his dick in her ass, warming up to it for a better ride when she went on top of him. The scene ended when she took his semen into her mouth with some dirty talk, swallowing his remains before the scene faded out.
Scene Six: Jesse Jane, wearing her cover outfit (not much, huh?), was up last in the bathroom with Charles Dera. He was cleaning up when she interrupted him, Jesse masturbating herself into a frenzy until he grabbed her by the throat and threw her to the floor in the adjoining bedroom where she blew him briefly until they began bumping uglies. She used her mouth and pussy to get him off but she was also in the throws of passion from the looks of it, her lithe frame shaking as a result of the rough treatment. She was passive until she was on top of him though, that was when she kicked into overdrive to crank up the heat. They shared some passion together and while it wasn’t the best I’ve seen out of a movie by the company this week, it was right up there as far as I was concerned. The way the two fucked, she drained his balls dry by the end of the scene, Jesse taking the facial and continuing to suck him off as if another was forthcoming.
Summary: Jesse Jane: Lust by director Celeste for Digital Playground had all the stylish leanings she likes to use by more of a gonzo dynamic, thanks in no small part to the superior editing job I’m sure. The cast was well chosen with Jesse Jane proving herself yet again and lovely Stoya enhancing things nicely with her single scene too. The technical matters were nicely done and the BTS was a cute extra, the balance of the entire package amounting to a rating of Recommended. In short, Jesse Jane: Lust did appear to show her repeatedly in the grips of a lustful emotional state of mind, the movie being something of a cross hit for me as Celeste met Robby half way to provide the best of both worlds as often as not.
