The Movie:

This 2006 effort from Celeste and the Digital Playground contract players, Icon, puts pretty Teagan Presley front and center in a film that manages to find that rare but appreciated blend of artistry, class and hardcore sex. There's no plot at all, but each scene does have a quick set up to it to give it some context. Despite Teagan's prominence on the cover, however, she's only in two of the eight scenes. That said, they're two good ones, so that counts for something. This is one of those Digital Playground features that does not feature any dialogue or live sound, however, so be ready for no 'sounds of sex,' rather, prepare yourself for instrumental music and nothing more in that department.

Here's a rundown of who fucks who and who they do it:

Scene 1 - Marco Banderas And Teagan Presley: Teagan starts this scene off solo, using a glass dildo on herself and playing with her pussy and tits. She gets more into her toy and herself, looking very nice in the black lingerie she's wearing, and then you realize Marco is watching her. All of a sudden Marco is standing beside her, which is kinda creepy when you think about it, but she doesn't seem to mind. Instead, she lets him kiss her body all over and then gives him a blowjob. Marco eats her out as all good men should and then she slips him inside her and rides him reverse cowgirl style. They got at it a bit longer and he pulls out (the condom he was wearing disappears) to shoot onto her face to end a good opening scene.

Scene 2 - Kinzie Kenner And Scott Nails: When this scene starts, Scott is looking depressed. That changes when a scantily clad Kinzie comes down the stairs and gets his attention. He sucks her tits and really pays attention to her excellent rack and then heads south to eat her out for a little while. Scott gets her on all fours and fucks her from behind, and then she rides him reverse cowgirl. She pulls off of him to give him the first blowjob of the scene which she applies with some welcome enthusiasm, which causes Scott to squirt into her motuh and finish things off. Kinzie does fine work here, taking control of the scene and really enjoying herself.

Scene 3 - Jerry And Tory Lane: The camera follows Tory's ass as she crawls towards Jerry on the couch. They make out and he fondles her and he plays with her tits while she stroks his dick hard. She pulls his cock out and gives him a serious blowjob and then they get to fucking. She rides him cowgirl, with a butt plug up her ass, and then she rides him reverse cowgirl for a bit. She pulls off of him and gets his cock back in her mouth to finish him off as he blows his load inside of her and onto her face.

Scene 4 - Scott Nails And Sophia Lynn: Scott and Sophia are watching something together in a darkened room. The mood strikes and soon enough she starts vying for his affections. He touches her through her clothes and vice versa and then she gives him a nice little strip show. He sucks her tits and takes her pants down to go down on her and then she returns the favor by giving him head. He gets her on all fours and fucks her from behind and then she rides him cowgirl and reverse cowgirl. They finish up by spoon fucking, after which he pulls out and gets her on her knees for a bit facial finish.

Scene 5 - Marco Banderas And Skigh Phoxxx: We see Skigh wearing a mask when this scene starts. Marco once again mysteriously appears beside her and she grabs his dick through his pants. She gets those pants down and as he fondles her she gets his cock out and after she plays with him a bit he gets her on all fours and goes at her from behind. He eats her from behind and plays with her some more and then he fucks her missionary style. After that he pulls his cock out and puts it into her mouth. They fuck doggie style and then cowgirl and reverse cowgirl before finishing up with some ass-centric doggy style action which leads to the inevitable pop shot that lands atop her lovely ass.

Scene 6 - Jerry And Lindsey Meadows: Lindsey does a nice job teasing us in her slinky blue outfit. After that, she decides to get dressed and as she does, Jerry shows up. She decides to tease him with her ass and by showing him her pussy and after a fair bit of making out he throws her down and eats her out. She returns the oral favors and gives his cock a good tongue lashing and he pulls out of her mouth and pushes into her pussy for some standing doggy style action. He puts her on the counter and fucks her missionary style and then pulls out and comes all over her face.

Scene 7 - Daisy Marie And Scott Nails: Daisy's sitting on a glass chair showing off her backside and Scott's underneath trying to lick through to it with no luck. Poor bastard. Daisy teases him by grinding down and giving him (and us) a hell of a show, and then they trade spots so that Scott can tease her by rubbing his cock against the glass, which she can't get to. They decide to stop this nonsense and get down to business and she sucks his cock like she means it to get things moving along. He stands her up and bends her over and fucks her from behind and then she lies back and he fucks her missionary style. She flips him over and rides him cowgirl style and then she pulls off of him and sticks out her tongue so he can squirt his spunk right onto to it and into her mouth.

Scene 8 - Teagan Presley And Tory Lane: This last scene starts off with Teagan and Tory showing off their lingerie and teasing the camera quite nicely. Tory puts on a strap on and approaches Teagan moves in on her. She plays with her tits and gropes her a bit and starts sucking her nipples and heading south. Tory goes down and works her over and Teagan sucks the strap on really aggressively, gagging and spitting on it a bit as she goes down on it. Tory fucks her friend with the toy pretty roughly and goes at it good and hard for a while and then Teagan sucks it clean for her.

While the lack of live sound is a detriment, those who like their porn filtered and artsy will enjoy this one. It's nicely shot and very stylish and completely safe couples to enjoy. There's no real rough stuff here and some good build up that will appeal to your mind as well as your crotch. The girls look good, the chemistry you'd want to see is there, and even if the audio is hard to look past, this is a nice, soft, sexy production all the way around.The DVD


Icon looks very good in this 1080p AVC 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. There's an insane amount of detail present not only on the performers but also in the sets and backgrounds/sets used in the production. There aren't any issues at all with compression artifacts or edge enhancement while color reproduction and skin tones look excellent throughout. Eagle-eyed viewers may spot just a hint of shimmer here and there but you do have to be looking for it to notice it.


The sole audio track on this Blu-ray release is a 48 kHz 448 kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound mix in English. The audio on this release is fine but it isn't as impressive as the transfer is. There's no dialogue to worry about but the musical score stays clean and clear throughout and the levels are all properly balanced. The score's resonance and boucne sounds good and there aren't any problems with background hiss or distortion at all. The audio here won't blow you away but it certainly won't disappoint you either even if there isn't a whole lot of rear channel action worth noting.


As seems to be the norm with their Blu-ray releases, Digital Playground has supplied only one real extra, and it's not a particularly exciting one. The ten minute behind the scenes documentary shows the girls hanging out and prepping for their scenes and... that's about it. There's no substance here, just the usual low impact interviews you'd expect. You do get some alternate angle fly on the wall style sex footage, however, so check it out for that reason.

Motion menus, seven Digital Playground trailers, a still gallery, contact info, and scene selection round out the supplements on this release.

Final Thoughts:

Icon is a good, safe, couples friendly release from Digital Playground. The lack of live audio will definitely turn some off but those who like to use their minds to sort of get in the mood as they watch stuff like this might appreciate the change. The Blu-ray looks and sounds quite good and while the extras are slim, the presentation holds up. Recommended.
