Cast: Nikki Jayne, Tommy Gunn, Alexis Texas, Mick Blue, Tori Black, Steve Holmes, Prinzzess, Chayse Evans, Christian XXX, James Deen
Length: 176:15 minutes
Date of Production: 1/28/2009
Extras: My favorite related extra was the 15:27 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Shylar Cobi. The footage was surprisingly light on showcasing Nikki Jayne but all the ladies got some camera time, the lotioning Alexis Texas really hot. There was then a sort of highlight reel from five scenes on the SD version of the release, lasting 25:28 minutes and showing some of the best parts of the action (scene clips from Damaged Goods, The Nikki Jayne Experiment, Strip Tease, Sugar Town, and Touch Me). The Blu-ray version included two scenes: The Nikki Jayne Experiment (10:12 minutes) and Touch Me (10:14 minutes), still edited but in high definition to look even better. There was then a biography for Nikki Jayne, some trailers, spam, and a photogallery (the Blu-ray dropping the minimalist stuff though, just offering the photogallery).
Audio/Video Quality: Centerfolds Exposed was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480p resolution for the SD version and the 1080i/VC-1 codec for the superior looking Blu-ray version. 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 it was shot in 1080i high definition (using those handheld Canon's Skow favors to provide fluid movement), making the Blu-ray version of it look much better. The editing was nicely done by "TBird Meadows", and post production was again handled by Kyle Caruso. The composition of the camera angles was generally optimal to capture the raw energy of the scenes but frequently required shooting into the light causing color saturation issues, giving it a similar look than many of Skow's previous showcase efforts. The fleshtones were accurate and the DVD mastering was well done (if only in a bitrate hovering around 3.4 Mbps in SD and 14.1 Mbps in the high definition Blu-ray), giving it some appealing visual quality; leaning towards above-average (if on the low side for Skow himself). There was a company watermark that I wasn't too keen on but most of the camera work seemed to keep this in mind, keeping the majority of action far away from the lower right hand corner. I really preferred the high definition version this time, the problems with the technical aspects mitigated somewhat but I will go on record as preferring the director's more polished efforts over the various experiments he tried here. 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. For an all sex vignette though, it was a sufficient soundtrack with minimalist leanings most of you will appreciate over loud generic music found elsewhere.

Body of Review: B. Skow is rapidly growing popular as a director for Vivid Entertainment, his showcase efforts such that every woman he focuses on becomes more appealing. This is not a new phenomenon either, the director largely responsible for enhancing the stature of Lanny Barby back a few years ago. His latest title making it my way is no different in that sense either, the movie called Centerfolds Exposed (SD & Blu-ray) and starring uber hotty Nikki Jayne. Nikki is a blond babe with a lean physique, beautiful eyes, and the kind of sexual appetite very few people associate with contract performers; the gal among the best performers in porn with that level of appeal. The six scenes of the movie included three starring Nikki but also three others with performers such as Alexis Texas, Tori Black, and Chayse Evans so going in to watching the movie, I felt strongly that this would be a top flight offering, especially in the high definition Blu-ray version. The back cover said it like this: "Have you ever wondered what goes on at a high profile photo shoot? Let CENTERFOLDS EXPOSED answer all your questions. Director B. Skow takes you behind the scenes with six top models who bare it all for a camera. Be there when they apply their make-up, put on their clothes, and best of all, when they take them off. And as the lights lights heat up heat up the set, the girls heat up the shoot and the session goes porno! With superstars like Nikki Jayne, Tori Black and Chayse Evans all trying to out-nasty each other! With toys, solos, big butts, costumes, crazy come shots, amazing teases and some of the hottest boy-girl action B. Skow has ever shot. CENTERFOLDS EXPOSED. Expose yourself immediately." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Nikki Jayne and Prinzzess
Scene One: Nikki Jayne, the stunningly attractive blond from England known to "do it all", was up first, her alluring picture on the front cover only a sample of what she brought to the show. She teased in the living room to some upbeat music, her clothing falling to the wayside in no time as the montage edited in some stills along with action shots of the babe. Once this strokable piece of heat was over, Tommy Gunn came in to eat her out, his tongue finding her perfect pucker and pussy to Nikki's delight. That led to her inhaling his knob, sucking him off and licking his gonads, all while she looked up into his eyes in some POV footage I truly enjoyed. The two added in some oral throughout the scene though but their strongest parts were yet to come in the extremely active penetrative portions of the scene, Nikki impaling herself rapidly on his pecker. She stuck with vaginal sex this time, eventually taking the facial of genetic juice as expected, her enthusiasm never waning even once she swallowed his wad. There was a modicum of chemistry here too but it struck me that they were pushing for a more pounding scene than romance.
Scene Two: Alexis Texas, a curvy blond with great curves including a fine ass, was up next as she teased in the household game room, standing beside two popular pinball machines as she followed the formula during the tease montage. She left a small patch of pubic hair and this was the leanest I recall ever seeing her, the sensual little babe masturbating until studly Mick Blue came over to assist her. The air conditioner was a bit louder than I like but the sweat glistening off their bodies suggested it was already a pretty hot warm location, their sexual chemistry and energy levels high enough to distract my attention away from minor problems. Mick sucked her ass crack and she rubbed it all over his shaven head too, the guy hammering her pussy until she was ready to give him a respectably decent hummer. They kissed and mutually masturbated on the blue love seat, Alexis spreading her legs to show her love for his cock as her booty shook during the ride. The dirty talk she put forth was minimal in terms of volume but it added something to the mix, some taste testing and varied positions making this another highly appreciated scene. It ended when Mick jerked out a load of population pudding to her torso, Alexis looking up at him from the pile driver position as if satiated by her experience even as he went back for sloppy seconds.
Scene Three: Tori Black, a sexy brunette with a lean figure, was up next as she shook her curves during the montage, the stills mixed in with the action working a bit better for me. Tori is one of the most popular gals in porn these days and while I have my reservations about most of her performances (thinking she relies more on looks than ability), there is no denying her slutty appeal (from the tip of her head to her beef curtains, all the way to her feet). She masturbated with a hairbrush and her glistening pink labia looked inviting, her knowing glances projecting a tremendous amount of sexual self confidence. Before she was really done with her bout of self love though, Steve Holmes stuck his pecker in her mouth, the gal greedily gobbling it up before allowing him to assist her in getting off. He diddled her and ate her snatch, Tori giving a short hummer before showing that despite my reservations, she could really turn up the heat by actively riding him. The vaginal sex was among her best scenes to date too; Tory scratching an itch deep inside her before Steve gave her feet some love. I'm not into foot fetish stuff but it was nice to see Skow reaching out to the fetish market as his stature grows, the oral and vaginal sex continuing in various positions in the living room setting before she milked him dry with a super blowjob. I admit to not expecting much from the scene initially but she was nearly as appealing as Alexis and Chayse here, the passion she poured into the performance certainly helping it.
Scene Four: Nikki Jayne, this time playing second fiddle to slutty Prinzzess, was up next after her new friend followed the tease montage formula successfully. Nikki brought a Vivid Bullette vibrator to juice her friend up and aggressively took the lead, tossing Prinzzess around on the bed as the two of them went down on each other front and back. I got mixed impressions about their personal chemistry and compatibility with one another but at the same time, both appeared to be highly fuckable and able to deliver the goods. As a supplement to the other scenes starring Nikki, it was a nice add in but the camera and lighting work looked more like what I expect from Shylar than Skow, the medium shot handled well enough just without as much flair as usual. The scene continued to find the ladies using other toys too, kissing and rimming as much as anything else. They even laid next to each other as they masturbated with toys but Prinzzess just could not resist sucking on Nikki's titty, and frankly, I can't blame her. The scene ended with a kiss and was pretty decent for a lipstick lesbian pairing.
Scene Five: Chayse Evans, a curvy brunette with a growing shoulder tattoo and nasty sexual appetite, was up next as she was seen during a photoshoot in sexy white lingerie. The disposable theme of the day was at least attended to here and her focused mannerisms were telling, Chayse truly wanting some cock to play with. Lucky for her, she got some in the form of Christian XXX, the second tier stud all over her before she delivered a messy blowjob worthy of her past efforts. He kicked back to enjoy her efforts, Chayse able to wake the dead with her hand to gland action enhanced by her oral skills substantially. It took Christian awhile to recover from her oral efforts too, the guy mechanically going down on her slowly as he beat his meat. It was a short burst of oral for him but Chayse was okay with it as she wanted him inside of her, the lady diddling her pussy as he banged away with mediocre rhythm. While their chemistry was not exactly great, Chayse elevated the quality of the scene a whole lot, pushing herself into a frenzy as her all natural tits bounced around and her pussy dripped with juices. Her active riding and oral soon led to her jerking him off to her mouth, Chayse licking him to elicit even more spew before swallowing it down in a decadent manner.
Scene Six: Nikki Jayne, up last as she massaged lotion into her skin, was even more desirable than ever, showing her flesh was built for speed but contained enough curvature for comfort too. There was a lot of footage of her getting made up and otherwise preparing for the scene here, the upbeat music replacing the vocals yet again during the tease portion of the scene. The Blu-ray version was so detailed that I could clearly see the small hairs on her ass as she wore her muff buffer skirt, the change of lingerie showing something for everyone as she masturbated. Once this portion was over, she was paired off with James Deen, the two seemingly engaging in a grudge fuck of sorts with him fingering her to a juicy orgasm and feeding her a taste before she slobbed his knob in epic fashion. Nikki was all over his cock like a shark in a feeding frenzy, throwing herself into his pleasure as she looked knowingly at the camera. The editing seemed different this time, as did the camera work, not worse but decidedly different and Nikki went back to her bad girl roots as she tossed his salad, James barely able to control himself as she snacked on his crack. That was enough to end the oral portion of the scene for the moment, James taking her in doggy with her hands held behind her back and some ass slapping as he pounded away at her pussy. Nikki pushed back to meet his thrusts and rolled her eyes as though into it on a deeper level, her dirty talk enhancing the replay value for me a bunch. Nikki then blew him to completion without using her hands, fingering her ass as he drilled her one last time. The scene ended with her swallowing his load of semen, licking her fingers as the camera faded out.
Bonus Scene: The Nikki Jayne Experiment: 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.
Bonus Scene: Touch Me: Alexis Texas, the curvy blond hotty that has been featured in scores of titles due to her large but sweet ass, was up next as she provided a lengthy bout of tease in her black & white striped bikini undies. Her makeup looked a lot better than average and her sex kitten routine was anything but a routine, her sensual side coming out as the cameras caught her warming up very nicely indeed. Her facial freckles, her patch of pubic hair, and her round ass enhanced by high definition all served to make her look better than ever, the solo work leading to Voodoo coming up behind her to feel her up. He savored the experience of going down on her ass and cookie too, getting her moist as needed to take his pecker deep inside her pussy. For all her positive traits, Alexis is not known for her advanced oral skills but she gave a decent hummer to the guy as well, focusing her efforts on the top few inches with her mouth as her hand gave the shaft some additional friction before they fucked vaginally (her first anal scene is about to come out on another title from what I hear). Alexis was most active during the cowgirl variations but managed to push back to meet the thrusts during the doggy too, leaving the spooning and missionary positions to be the passive fuck doll some fans prefer. Watching her ass cheeks ripple as she rode was a very inspirational moment for me and the length of time spent on this portion of the scene (in each scene in fact) gave the title some serious legs as far as I was concerned when evaluating replay value for future use. While Alexis will probably never be as good a performer as Briana, this scene was another example of how Skow brings out the best in his people, her ass taking the stream of population pudding before she kissed the air to signify she was done. Yum!
Summary: Centerfolds Exposed by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment was not a perfect fuck flick but the director kept quite as the performers went at one another, the degree of enthusiasm, energy, and chemistry enough to merit a rating of Highly Recommended, in large part due to the appeal of Nikki Jayne's splendid performances. She was in half the scenes and the other ladies, such as Alexis Texas, Tori Black, Chayse Evans, and Prinzzess were all well suited for way the director shot the scenes. In short, Centerfolds Exposed (SD & Blu-ray) brought it home with a lot of fuck for the buck, the all sex production showing the cast excelling at their craft as they delivered some of their best performances to date. Good job!
