Audio/Video Quality: The Nikki Jayne Experiment Blu-ray was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition VC-1 codec in 1080i resolution. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in HD, a nice, if modest, upgrade to my previously reviewed SD version. The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore what was advertised as "the dirtiest Vivid girl I have ever seen" on the cover according to the director. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible. The fleshtones were accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done (if only in a bitrate hovering around 9.2 Mbps; jamming all the material onto a single disc rather than really letting loose in the upgrade), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent. I also noticed that some parts of the audio were not picked up by the microphone, giving some sections a dubbed look to them (like Megan's scene) but it still managed to sound okay despite the limitations.
Body of Review: B. Skow is not only a blogger here at Xcritic but he is also an award winning director working for Vivid Entertainment, his eye for the ladies always allowing him to find their most positive attributes and promote them like few others could dare. His talent with a camera is also renowned and few that see much of his work find fault with it, at least when he controls a project. His latest release is The Nikki Jayne Experiment Blu-ray, a single disc showcase piece starring the company's newest contract gal, a hot blond English export first seen in Gazzman's The Initiation of Nikki Jayne where she stunned the world with how into the nastiest sex she could get, proving that beauty does not preclude talent as so many suggest has to be the case. This time, Nikki gets a full work up of fun for hours of entertainment, from short solo scenes to lengthy bouts of boning the likes of which no one would have predicted coming from Vivid even a few years ago. With long blond hair and gorgeous blue eyes, the curvy babe also manages to prove Skow's summation of her nasty side, making her a contract starlet you'll want to keep an eye on in coming years. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Nikki Jayne, the sexy blond gal featured on the front cover, was up first as she described what she intended to do in the movie, sitting in an interview chair as she flashed her chest until Skow called for her to start the scene with Mick Blue on a bed in an industrial setting. The music was a bit heavy to start but the camera loved her, Nikki teasingly revealing glimpses of her chest and other body parts in a playful manner, her hair flowing as she caressed herself. Her yellow top and matching panties did not last long either, the short skirt disposed of even faster to allow access to her goodies. She masturbated for awhile and as the music stopped, Mick came into the picture, both of them feeling each other up until he went to finger her biscuit. Nikki provided some aural stimulation as he did so, the gal dropping down to slob his knob well before she positioned herself over him to get some oral from the well liked guy. Nikki was an active cock rider too, bouncing on his rod as she impaled herself soundly, her lips glowing pink as they continued their horizontal mambo. Nikki did some intermittent oral between positions too but it was clear to me that she enjoyed fucking more than anything. Mick then ate her ass and oiled it up, stretching her perfect pucker with his finger until it was time for something much larger, Nikki wanting him to stop teasing her when she could have the real deal. While Nikki was not as active anally, it was still a decent opening scene with some ATM, Mick rubbing out a load of genetic juice to her open mouth at the end. The scene ended after the 55 minute mark of the movie too, showing a lot of footage for a company once known as skimpy in their length. Nice!
Scene Two: Veronique Vega, a lean brunette with her bikini underwear on, was up next as she pranced around seductively in a living room setting with too much light pouring into it, the resulting colors being too saturated. I prefer gals with more meat on their bones too but she was definitely cute if you like them young looking. She continued her tease to the loud music and was soon masturbating on the couch, smiling at the camera as she gyrated and wiggled her ass, seeing that moper Trent Tesoro would be her partner. He kissed her and plunged his fingers into her snatch, moving into position to go down on her and feed her his juice soaked fingers, before he throat fucked her during the messy blowjob. The streamers flew about her face but she concentrated on the task at hand, looking at the camera far too much but showing a lot of skill with a meat pipe too. The hand assisted hummer resulted in her climbing onto his pecker, Veronique passively taking everything he offered but in a mechanical manner more than anything else (they lacked any chemistry together). The panting during his attempts to satiate her were fair and she did do some taste testing, the gal looking at the camera as if asking Skow for a better partner (maybe himself) until Trent jerked off a modest load of population pudding to her face.
Scene Three: Meggan Mallone, Nikki Jayne, and Jerry, were up next after Nikki gave a short solo warm up on a pink couch using a vibrator. The two ladies were in a claw foot tub bathing as they explored each other in heated fashion, a lot of oral provided by both of them enhanced by some kissing and wet looking body parts. They rubbed, sucked, caressed, and fingered one another, leaner Meggan learning from the newcomer more than the reverse. That was when Jerry walked in wearing a towel strategically placed to hide his erection, the ladies ripping it off him to gain access to his boner as they double teamed him orally. It became a contest of wills to see who could provide him with the most pleasure too, each of the gals treating him to a variation of the oral loving he has experienced so many times before. The ball licking, deep throating, shaft licking hummer was extremely well done too, the action moved to the dining area for Nikki to jump his rod vaginally. Megan followed suit and both gals worked on assisting each other during the penetrative sex, the audio a bit weird but otherwise showing the gals to be wise selections overall. The trio also showed the ladies in a 69 position where Jerry would plow them as the other gal would suck him clean or lick his nuts, this being the best portion of the riding as far as I was concerned. Nikki gave a bit of running commentary towards the end of the scene too, dropping it to concentrate on the mission at hand of milking Jerry dry. He started busting a nut early this time, unable to hold back as the ladies took the facial with smiles, limited chemistry but a willingness to swallow certainly not hurting them.
Scene Four: Allyssa Hall, a cute brunette with an all natural body, was up next on a colorful couch outside as she masturbated, the short tease footage handled in a dreamy soft focus before it was thankfully dropped when moper Alec Knight came to eat her out. Allyssa seemed to appreciate his oral attentions but much of it struck me as faked, the semi-POV way it was shot adding some heat for me even if they had no chemistry. She watched the camera intensely as she slobbed his knob too, her vaginal screwing quite passive until she was on top of his lap. Allyssa did some oral clean up a few times (PTM) between positions but she was not enthusiastic about working with the guy from what I could see, still looking fetching to me though even if it wasn't very strokable. The junkyard look of the setting was kind of interesting too and if you read between the lines very well, a reviewer describing the setting this far into the scene should tell you a few things about the relative filler nature of the scene itself. Allyssa has untapped potential but it wasn't put to use here, this being the first scene of the second disc did not help matters much and I did not believe her in the slightest when she claimed to be ready to "come again" since there was no evidence of her ever coming in the scene. Alec jerked off to her mouth at the end of the scene but she focused on the camera as if skeptical about her partner's prowess.
Scene Five: Nikki Jayne, once again showing why all the scenes without her presence were a waste of time, began her next tease session in heated fashion, the canned music complementing her doe eyed look and winning smile as she ever so slowly removed her skimpy underwear to masturbate. A hard edit then resulted in both Ben English and Mick Blue joining her on the mattress, the men feeling her up as she stroked their cocks rapidly. She went back and forth between them when it came to kissing but also when the inevitable sword swallowing took place, the dynamic soon showing her do the same with vaginally riding the peckers plunging deep inside of her from various angles. At some point, they oiled up her ass too, this leading to Nikki doing a double penetration (DP) as Mick tore into her ass while Ben pummeled her pussy. Nikki held on for dear life as the men drilled her so rapidly and the rest of the scene showed them all swapping roles with one guy in her pussy, ass, or mouth, while the other took a different hole. Nikki loved sucking them clean too, savoring her own juices off their meat sticks until the men unleashed their seed upon her face at the very end of the action. Whew!
Scene Six: Nikki Jayne, naked and looking very sexy once more, then closed out the movie with a semi-POV blowjob to the mighty Evan Stone as she knelt before his clean shaven crotch to start inhaling his cock. The gal smiled at him and he could not keep quiet, even using his legs to wrap around her head in a display of trying to hold off from busting a nut. Nikki blew him as if possessed and spent ample time cleaning his nuts, eventually jerking out his spew while he whispered numerous comments to her. Cool!
Bonus Scene: Brand New Faces 1: Courtney James, the fresh young face seen on the upper right hand corner of the cover from Blythewod SC, was up last and I was surprised that the movie had already gone on for almost 2 hours and 45 minutes. She claimed to be 18 years old and have 34C tits, the age looking about right as she reminded me of a young version of Cheyenne as she followed the formula. The lucky guy this time was again Sascha and she had the slightly nervous anticipation of a newcomer. The other gals all appeared to be more experienced and older but Courtney seemed to be the freshest peach of the patch, combined with her open sexuality making her another gal to keep an eye out for in the future. The tease, interview, solo, and partner entry went without a hitch this time too; the couple taking their time to get to know each other better orally at first. She concentrated her oral on his head, wrapping her lips around his cock as she worked his shaft over with her hand. She was not as active a rider as most of the others in the movie but this only gives her room to grow as a performer; her ass stretched by his fingers in what could have been a first anal too. She grunted and groaned a lot during the scene but I did get the impression that she was new to porn and that made it more fun to watch for the kind of movie this was meant to be; showcasing newcomers at work rather than display an array of cunning stunts busting loose. Sascha popped a load into her mouth and she spit it out on her titties to massage it in; not having much to swallow as Skow asked of her.
Bonus Scene: Brand New Faces 7: Jean LaConia, the sexy brunette seen on the lower right hand corner coming from Putnam Connecticut in a scene with Sascha shot on January 14, 2008. She was a busty gal with French braids, possessing the outgoing nature more common to porn than Estrella showed; her fleshy ass in great need of my face to press against. Her sense of nervous energy worked really well for me, projecting her work as a nude dancer well ahead of time with her animated interview. She liked masturbating and even gave Skow a lap dance, the lack of a pole limiting how much she could do but she is also welcome to gyrate in my lap some day should she come to Houston. She moved to the bedroom set for her meeting with Sascha, going right to work on him as they kissed and she grabbed his cock to stroke it. She inhaled his meat pipe and proved she was no stranger to cock, the pair getting into a 69 that really didn't show a lot of him eating her out in this single camera scene. While Jean was not especially fluid in changing vaginal positions, she had a time of it with the guy though, appreciating his skill as he drilled her so well. She could have been slightly more active but I liked the way her "fantastic titties" bounced as they fucked, the gal's tiny cookie accommodating his rod as she made minimal grunts and groans. The scene ended with a titty pop but Sascha was off his game that day, needing Jean to repeatedly do PTM to keep him hard. I think she has tremendous potential though, displaying a sense of enthusiasm and energy with just enough rough edges to make her a newcomer winner.
Bonus Scene: Brand New Faces 2: Phoenix Marie, the cutie on the lower left hand corner of the front cover with the 36-C bra size, was first up as the Golden Valley Arizona native showed all her goodies on 10/11/2007 in a scene with Voodoo. The series formula is to have the gals talk about themselves and while she seemed kind of shy, Phoenix liked the director's touch even before she had Voodoo lying his skills to make her wet. Aside from her implants, she seemed to be a naturally playful gal and not so skinny as some in the industry appear to favor. She masturbated and was clearly wet without any assistance, her career as a stripper probably about to take off if she continues making a few more pornos. They left the couch to go to the well lit bed to play; the gal anxious to undress him to see the kind of package she was about to work with. The size caused her eyes to light up just a bit before she started sucking him off, licking his balls and actively enjoying the taste of his member as she got into the scene. He fingered her and was also appreciative for the newcomer coochie, pounding away on her cookie in no time as her juices flowed nicely (but not the fake "squirting" kind too common elsewhere). Their respiration rates elevated as the scene continued and they showed some chemistry for one another as they bumped uglies, Phoenix doing some PTM between vaginal positions until climbing on top of him. The scene lasted almost a full hour and she was raw as could be but positively glowing when he rubbed out the load of population pudding to her chest and mouth; the lady doing some post coital sucking and laughing to close things out (she even swallowed what limited load went to her mouth). Whew!
Bonus Scene: Brand New Faces 1: Ruby Rider, a 20 year old blond seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, was up next in a scene shot on 9/24/2007, with Donny Long as her partner. There has been some discussion about this pair online but judging from the scene itself, they seemed to get along fine after she followed the same basic formula. Her thick hips enhanced her look for me more than her smallish 34B rack, Skow teaching her how to effectively masturbate on camera as she playfully complied. Her tight pussy was sweet looking too as she stuck her finger in to begin making it wet. She even used a vibrator to masturbate with, tasting it before moving to the bed to work with Donny. He took his time with her instead of rushing like he usually does; Ruby pressing her hips up against his hand as he struck a positive nerve on her. They moved into a 69 position after that and after some face sitting on him, they took time for a proper boning. She was active from the beginning and even though they seemed to have limited chemistry together (not to mention no rhythm with each other), she was wet enough to cover the camera lens with her juices (not piss on it as others do). They performed in numerous positions before some PTM and the ending facial; Donny glazing her well enough that I thought he must have taken a month off to accomplish the task.
Bonus Scene: Brand New Faces 7: Sasha Sin, the sweet looking blond seen on the upper left hand corner from Mesa Arizona, was up last in a scene shot with James Deen on December 19, 2007. Sasha looked the part as a tanned, very lean bleach blond, having a healthy sense of nervous energy for a 19 year old. Skow kept her from speeding through the series dynamic too, something he has to do from time to time when a gal is unable to catch how quickly she tries to progress through the standardized formula. I think I'd find her more attractive if she gained a few pounds but Skow worked his magic to get a decent performance out of her, proving his value to the series yet again as he coaxed her to do it all better than I think she would have otherwise. She teased, masturbated, and then found her niche working with James on the bedroom set; her facial features reminding me of Jenna Jameson when she turned the right way. She must have tasted pretty good too because James was chowing down like crazy on her box before she gave a fairly short, inexperienced blowjob to the guy (making me believe that she had only been with "two guys" in the past). She was the most passive ride of the show too, letting James do all the work and lowering what could have been a highly recommended rating from me, but this might serve fans of the newcomer dynamic even better since she struck me as having very little experience sexually before her scene. Perhaps with some practice, maybe making POV scenes with a reviewer friend of mine at another website or something, she will show up all the others but while it wasn't a great scene, she showed a decent amount of potential before taking the mouth pop.
Summary: The Nikki Jayne Experiment Blu-ray by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment proved that Nikki Jayne's debut appearance last year was no fluke and that fans can expect a lot more from her than her associate contract gals. The quality of the scenes revolving around Nikki would have sent the rating even higher had the weaker scenes been left behind (and the extras fleshed out more; I hate edited scenes) but due to the technical aspects and amount of quality fuck for the buck, it still merited a rating of Recommended from me. I don't need a lady to be an extreme queen to appreciate her performances and Nikki's beauty alone should elevate sales of her works, but suffice it to say that Nikki Jayne is something special and I expect a whole lot of her contract with Vivid. In short, The Nikki Jayne Experiment Blu-ray showed Vivid thinking outside their usual parameters as they seek to appease the fans, her signing likely proving to be a move we can all find very wise indeed.My only concerns were that the upgrade, while showing Nikki Jayne in glorious high definition, would have been better served with a high bitrate, a full 1080p resolution, and unique extras instead of truncated bonus scenes from the Brand New Faces series.
