Audio/Video Quality: Jana Cova: Erotique 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 look okay; a return to the more distinctive Celeste look that marked her flicks from prior to last year where Robby asserted his own style more frequently. In fact, the technical matters and editing by Sidney Michaels aside, I would have said that Celeste might have even been on set for these scenes given how different they looked but for the time frame when they were shot. The lighting was generally solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget; favoring a soft focus in some cases that I wasn't convinced worked too well. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts; with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the low 6 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related 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 always clearly heard here.
Body of Review: Celeste is the best looking director at Digital Playground as far as I'm concerned and my assorted female friends almost all appreciate her works more than I do given the emphasis on erotic elements that are sometimes lacking in other titles by the company. Over the years that she has directed, she thankfully gave up most of the "music instead of vocals" angle, and to say that her director of photography gives up some of his best nods to the performers under her direction is an understatement. The next example of her erotica in action comes out in the middle of next month and is called Jana Cova: Erotique. Much like the other volumes in the series, I got the impression that Celeste was shooting for a particular feel over a specific look most of the time, lovely Jana Cova certainly benefiting from the treatment given her in the movie. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested, but keep in mind that Jana did not do men here so don't expect any surprises:
Charlie Laine, Jana Cova, and Karlie Montana
Scene One: Jana Cova, the blond Czech Republic babe featured on the front cover, was up first with appealing Sophia Santi, and Jamie Lynn; her partners sporting minimal clothing in the blackened room. Sophia had on a small black strap on dildo and all three of them seemed lost in the moment as they pawed each other; kissing and using breasts to smother with as a heated form of foreplay. The camera work was less explicit than usual but there was no doubt that the ladies were into the sexual depravity taking place; Jana getting most of the attention and showing why she was such a valued member of the team despite her limitations. The chemistry between them seemed real enough and I appreciated how active all of them were in the various forms of engagement they pursued.
Scene Two: Lexi Love, one of the most popular gals at the AEE earlier this year, was up next in a medical themed scene with Scott Nails. She had on a fetish outfit and he played at being a doctor, his gloves finding her every nook and cranny as he explored her body. The scene used medical instruments like the enema plunger and glass sex toys to prepare her ass; Scott diving right in to nail her backside and stay there rather than test her vaginal proclivities too. Lexi did some oral on him in the form of ATM but the majority of the scene was dedicated to the anal action that she is so perfectly suited for, Lexi appearing to get into the pounding of her perfect pucker quite nicely. Her active riding and dirty talk eventually led to a moderate facial; most of the population pudding gracing her mouth.
Scene Three: Jana Cova, dressed in blue collar undies, was up next on the toilet as Renee Perez knelt in front of her to drink her beer via a straw from the can of Budweiser so precariously situated. The ladies then took turns going down on each other, leaving their panties on but off to the side for easier access, their looks of desire towards each other saying a lot more than I could in this brief scene description. The toys came into play as well, particularly a large black curved dildo, both of them appearing to get off at least once.
Scene Four: Kelly Kline, a lovely lady that has been in porn for years, was up next as she gave Marco Banderas a present of a jock strap. The apparel turned her on and she started tossing around a football, stripping off her own clothes to encourage him out of his shyness. She liked playing with his ass and the tightly held package just as much as he liked her doing what she wanted with it; the living room couch perfect for the couple to play on. This foreplay continued until both of them were all over each other, Kelly manually handling his cock before aggressively sucking him off and Marco reciprocating to her pleasing. She then actively rode his rod and he eventually removed her pantyhose, licking her feet before letting loose on her some more. Kelly gave him a foot job and they boned some more, ending with a modest load on her upper chest that she wiped away with his jock strap.
Scene Five: Harmony, a sexually aggressive gal with blond highlights, was up next in bed with studly Mick Blue. She sat on top of him as she removed her top, the two getting frisky about what would happen and who was in charge. He ate her, she blew him, and then she started diddling herself anally with a large red toy as he fingered her. That stretched her out enough to ready her ass for him to penetrate, Harmony always most active when on top of Mick. I liked watching her ass cheeks shake as the pair fucked, the ending load of spew going to her willing mouth.
Scene Six: Jana Cova, wearing red fishnet stockings and a loose dress, was up next as she lined up a series of glass dildos to play with; giving each a name as she extolled their individual virtues. What followed was a sultry solo scene where she sucked and fucked a bunch of the toys, the camera close up on her face as often as not.
Scene Seven: Cayton Caley, a cute brunette with a sweet little ass, was supposed to be up next with moper John Esposito, but he couldn't handle it so Scott Nails assumed the role of her sexual plaything in the bed. Her red panties were swallowed whole by her ass crack and she wanted him to spank her with a red plastic paddle but he was busy reading his magazine so it took some persuading to get him interested. Almost by definition, this kind of dynamic is alien to most men, a willing hotty always held dear by those of us that don't get a bevy of beauties to bone but after some minimal oral he was drilling her pussy like he owned it and she was screaming in pleasure. Cayton was in her groove and showed some heated sparks worthy of replay value, her vocals alone elevating the scene for me as much as her skillful performance before the facial came flying out of his penis.
Scene Eight: Jana Cova, Charlie Laine, and Karlie Montana were up last in another lesbian group grope. This one was toy heavy, even more than usual, with the ladies fighting over various fake dicks to suck as they felt each other up. Jana was as incredible looking as ever and her gal pals knew it, reveling in how they got to appreciate her first hand, licking, kissing, and pawing her at will as she purred in delight. The scene ended when Charlie and Karlie wore small red strap on dildos that spurted out a milky white substance for Jana to get bathed in; the idea being she was being bathed in a substance she has yet to take to on camera.
Summary: Jana Cova: Erotique by director Celeste for Digital Playground had a whole lot of lovely Jana Cova being showcased and for that alone, it earned a rating of Recommended from me. I'm a fan of hers for good reason and the use of textures, different types of sexual imagery, and creative situations all contributed to make this a solid little offering for like minded consumers to appreciate. In short, Jana Cova: Erotique was the type of porno that combined a lot of variety to appeal to a wider audience, the erotic nature of the material undeniably appealing on multiple levels.
