PlayGirl Teaser: Resistance Is Futile! There is an ancient principle that each of us contains within themselves - a unique source of energy. Use your power to cast your sex spell."Possessed by a burning love, this love must come to me. Let them yearn for me, desire me. Let their love enter me. I must have them. They must have me. Let us burn with love for one another."Just remember, play with fire...and you will get burned.
The Movie: Playgirl has gone back once again into their secret vault of goodies using footage shot back in 2004. As I have mentioned in numerous reviews, there is always a Hit or Miss Quality with them. Each of the vignettes was well done though the footage was either a bit too dark or didn't use enough light filters to block out the strong rays of the sun. PlayGirl's Sex Spells is an erotic soft core DVD made for women and couples that do not enjoy the hard core genre of the adult movies but want something to put them in the mood. Even the cover of the DVD is especially designed to attract a woman's desires at the point of purchase.
Audio/Video: PlayGirl's Sex Spells is distributed by Wicked Pictures for Playgirl TV, and presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Full Screen format. The lighting in each scene was decent with some minor shadowing. Each scenes lighting was different due to the nature of the scene and trying to keep with the romantic and sensual aspect of setting. The colors appeared to be very dull and the picture at times was very grainy. The camera when it should have panned in closer always was too far away making the picture fuzzy at times.

Bonus Scene: Saddle w/Nick Manning &Harmony:
-- sponsored by --
Outdoors with a younger Nick Manning, he and his gal Harmony bring up the heat index up a few notches. They start off with the foreplay on top of a long tin tub and end up having Harmony laying over the saddle with Nick behind her. While the couple looked good together the scene was way too short for anyone to enjoy.
Solo Audition: Aaron King:
If you have been reading all of my previous PlayGirl DVD's reviews, you know that my major pet peeves with them are the bonus solos or as they call them auditions. The young man totally disinterested and you can see that from the beginning he was already bored with the scene with his yawning. What makes you think that spending a total of 15:40 minutes watching him trying to get your juices flowing is actually worth the watch? Aaron King showed no enthusiasm nor does he have what it takes to have a solo for PlayGirl TV DVD. Maybe I'm wrong but his lack luster performance is a mood killer. Where do they find these guys???
Bonus Solo: Derrick Pierce:
Poolside and dressed in a nice dark pinstripe suit, Derrick has what it takes and them so to keep you solely focused on him while dancing in your seat to the techno music as he starts to slowly take it off. Derrick knows how to work the camera to his advantage even though the camera person should have come in a lot closer. Now this is something that I would love to see more in a PlayGirl DVD instead of the wannabee's they have been previously using.
Scene 1: Moving In - Charmane & Alex Rox:
Moving in together seems to be a lot more work than what Charmane planned. Her plan of distracting Alex works to her advantage once the clothes comes off and the individual foreplay begins. Once done with pleasuring themselves they go on to mutual foreplay taking it then to some ok vaginal sex.
Scene 2: Take Me Away - Roxy & Jay Huntington:
Roxy is at home tapping away on her laptop chatting it up with someone she has the hots for and hasn't met yet. Finding herself very aroused she invites him over and they both give into their desires living up to what they spoke about over instant messenger.
Scene 3: Snow Job - Penny & Marco Banderas:
Marco wants to prove to his girlfriend once and for all that having a dancer's body and talent doesn't mean he is gay. Penny sets up the backdrop for him with a snow blowing machine and a daybed to be proven wrong by Marco. The camera in this scene was so off that you couldn't even make out that it was Penny Flame with Marco.
Scene 4: Returning the Favor - Alexis & Hershel Savage:
Remarrying and still not being sexually satisfied is what is on Alexis's mind. As she states " Its good to be bad" and that they were. Again the camera doesn't do either of them justice. Hershel gave into her naughty seduction taking his mind of doing her taxes and ends up doing her.
Scene 5: A Bath Before Bed - Claire & Steven St. Croix:
Make up sex is so much better after you work up a sweat first. Claire and Steven get all worked up and sweaty after a big fight which has them in the tub lathering the other up first before they really make up. Again the picture quality was very poor and the chemistry just didn't work with Claire & Steven.
Scene 6: Jacuzzi - Marie & Chris Dano:
Marie is off on her own and looking to get into some good kind of trouble while at the beach. Chris comes along and peaks her curiosity and ends up going back to his place for some fun of their own in the pool. OK scene but would have enjoyed watching Marie with someone more her equal sex wise.
Final Thoughts: Being consistent is something that PlayGirl TV is not readily known for. In my previous review of PlayGirl's Dirty Delights which got a Recommended from me, Sex Spells gets a "Rent it" from me. I found it to be very corny in their ideas of what women want to see in porn. Granted this is soft core but still.. Not all women want luke warm erotica that doesn't even get them damp. Even though the scenes date back to as early as 2004, it still doesn't explain the picture quality and lack of chemistry between the performers. Hopefully their next title "Sensual Ecstasy is better than this one..
