Jenna's Provocateur was the first movie directed by Jenna Jameson. It's magnificent!
It's patently obvious that Jenna learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes while being in front of the camera for so many years. The result is not only downright gorgeous but also hotter than hell. Jenna's work is superb.
Jenna's Provocateur is an all-sex, wall-to-wall release with a twist. Instead of showing up at a location, throwing up some lights, and shouting "fuck," Jenna selected absolutely superb locations and sets, used the best of equipment (including film-based cameras instead of the more-common digital variety), lit her scenes with care usually reserved for major mainstream pictures, chose only the most gorgeous A-list girls (of course, most of them are Club Jenna contract girls), dressed her performers in stunning attire (the movie is billed as a "Couture Film"), had them made up impeccably, and then shouted "fuck!" The performers did as Jenna wanted...and fucked hard and passionately. No, this is not some soft-and-sweet pretty-sex movie. It's hard-hitting sex performed by gorgeous girls in sumptuous wardrobe and makeup. It's definitely a "keeper." Believe me, you'll want a copy of Jenna's Provocateur in your library. It's proof positive that Jenna is much more than just the world's most incomparable porn star.
Jenna's Provocateur is available in six versions, each featuring one of Club Jenna's contract girls (Ashton Moore, Chanel St. James, Jesse Capelli, Krystal Steal, McKenzie Lee, and Sophia Rossi). When you buy the two-disc DVD set, you choose your favorite girl's version of Provocateur so that you can enjoy her image on the menus, see additional photo galleries that feature her, and enjoy her full-length masturbation sequence. Everything else, including the main feature and the contents of disc two, remains the same from version to version. In my case, the folks at Club Jenna know that I'm partial to Krystal Steal. So, they sent me Krystal's version of Jenna's Provocateur. So, I'm writing this review based upon what I saw in that version.
Bottom line? If you like beautiful girls in beautiful attire fucking in beautiful places, you're gonna love Jenna's Provocateur. It's an experience...not just an adult movie!
Check out some photos of the girls in Provocateurhere. Pay particular attention to the photo of the incomparable Jenna Jameson and the shots of one of my all-time favorite girls, Krystal Steal! Enjoy!
Scene One is a four-way b/b/b/g scene featuring McKenzie Lee with Ben English, Marco Banderas, and Scott Nails. Once this five-star anal- and DP-intensive splashes across your screen, you'll realize that Jenna Jameson likes it hard as well as gorgeous.
Tease: McKenzie, dressed in fabulous evening attire and glittering jewels, enters through the front door of a beautiful mansion and poses seductively for us as wind tosses her hair and skirt provocatively. As the tease progresses, we get glimpses of more and more of McKenzie's hard and athletic body, including her clean-shaven pussy and never-ending legs.
Foreplay 1: Fingers and fondling. The tease morphs seamlessly into foreplay as McKenzie, seated on an elegant chair, is surrounded by the three guys. They lustily caress her body, slip her boobs out of her dress, multiple-finger-fuck her pussy, jack her clit, kiss her mouth, and squeeze her boobs. Of course, McKenzie reacts by groaning with pleasure.
Foreplay 2: Fellatio. Acting like a little girl in a candy store, McKenzie gobbles Scott's dick.
Position 1: Doggie. As McKenzie swallows Scott's rod--and makes spit stringers from it to her mouth--she bends over so that Marco can fuck her like a dog from behind. Superb close-ups capture McKenzie's dripping cunt as Marco pounds it balls-deep and when he gapes her gorgeous hole. Soon, McKenzie is so inflamed that she tosses her body back and forth to fuck Marco stroke-for-stroke. Meanwhile, she eagerly blows both Scott's and Ben's dicks. She also sucks her girl juice off of Marco's rod. Later, Ben, too, gets an opportunity to pound McKenzie's pussy doggie style (great camera work). She entertains him with a never-ending flow of deliciously naughty Brit-accented words. And, McKenzie keeps the other guys' rods happy with her mouth, too!
Position 2: Missionary/popshot 1. McKenzie lies on her back and spreads her legs wide open so that Scott can fuck her luscious cunt from above. Meanwhile, the other guys take turns fucking her mouth. Ben gets so enraged that he simply cannot hold back...he pops all over McKenzie's enhanced boobs as she giggles with delight.
Position 3: Standing doggie anal. While McKenzie stands upright, Marco, standing behind her, slips his cock into her tight asshole and pounds her relentlessly as her labia wink open and close in sync with his thrusts (fantastic camera angles and close-ups). Meanwhile, McKenzie keeps her clit happy by stroking it. And, she keeps her mouth busy by sucking her ass juices off of Marco's cock using a very slobbery ATM technique. During this segment, McKenzie multiple-finger-fucks her juicy pussy while Marco fucks her asshole. The result? Repeated body-shaking orgasms that look sweeter than sugar!
Position 4: Piledriver anal. McKenzie, sitting on her shoulders atop an elegant pillow tossed on the marble floor, looks stunning as Scott "nails" her asshole with his super sized dick while standing above her. More superb footage captures the action as Scott reams McKenzie's gorgeous genitals. Even though the action is unquestionably beautiful, it's also nasty...especially when naughty Scott slips his ass-covered cock out of McKenzie's asshole and directly into her drenched pink vagina. Wow! As the scene continues, Scott repeatedly fucks her holes ass-to-pussy. Believe me, McKenzie and Scott certainly aren't content with soft-core sex! I loved it!
Position 5: Cowgirl DP. Scott lies on his back atop a marble floor and fucks McKenzie's juicy pussy as she straddles him cowgirl style. Meanwhile, Marco pounds her asshole from above. While they fuck her, the guys increase McKenzie's pleasure by caressing her flesh and by squeezing her boobs. And, when McKenzie nears orgasm, Marco chokes her throat to push her over the edge. Again, great camerawork highlights the action as the guys make McKenzie cry out, pant, and giggle with pleasure.
Popshots 2 and 3: McKenzie kneels between the guys as they stand and jack off onto her face and into her greedy mouth. McKenzie uses her fingers to wipe wayward semen into her mouth, blows bubbles with the cum, and swallows every drop. Good girl! Afterward, we're treated to some more glamour clips of pretty McKenzie as she teases and pleases.
In contrast to orgy-like Scene One, Scene Two is a conventional boy/girl featuring Evan Stone and Sophia Rossi. It's a hot vaginal-only scene that rates four and one-half stars on my boy/girl scale.
Tease: This is my first look at busty blond Sophia, so I'm pleased that she spends several minutes erotically dancing for us while dressed in a very chic, yet surprisingly erotic, red and black outfit.
Tease 2: Things get even hotter when Sophia dreams about stripping down to her underwear and riding one of the most incendiary "workout machines" I've ever seen. Although it appears much like an exercise machine, the device has a huge dildo attached to it that, you guessed it, fucks Sophia's sweet hole while she rocks her pretty ass back and forth. This footage alone is almost worth the purchase price of the movie!If I had a cunt, I'd simply HAVE to get one of those toys! Clips of Sophia writhing in ecstasy should be the sales video for the manufacturer!
Foreplay 1: Cunnilingus. Back in the present, Sophia, again dressed in her bright red outfit, is joined by Evan Stone. Evan soon lies down on the floor so that Sophia can straddle and fuck his face (nice close-ups of Sophia's bald-shaven pussy). Evan licks and bites her labia, tongue- and multiple-finger-fucks her vagina, and tickles her clit with the tip of his tongue.
Foreplay 2: 69. While continuing to fuck Evan's face, Sophia bends down and begins to lick and stroke his hugely-engorged cock. Of course, she also shoves damn near all of its length down her insatiable throat. Damn, she looks good worshiping a cock! Fuck, I love 69 and wish it were more often used in adult movies. This is a superb example of intense 69 at its best.
Position 1: Reverse cowgirl. As Sophia tosses her hot body up and down on Evan's rod, the camera zooms in to pay homage to both her huge and shapely tits and her hungry pussy. Sophia's luscious labia look magnificent as they wrap themselves around Evan's lucky cock as she fucks him balls-deep. Even better, stunning super close-ups capture this hot in-and-out action larger than life. Sophia hurls herself up and down with an incredible amount of energy--causing her huge tits to bounce joyfully--as she ramps up to a screaming orgasm. Wow, she's a fabulous fuck!
Position 2: Doggie. As Evan pounds Sophia's sweet pink hole doggie style with redline-speed strokes, her ample juices soak his rod and drip down her body. And, her incoherent screams and shouts reveal her pleasure and passion.
Position 3: Standing doggie. Sophia stands on her right leg and lifts her right leg high onto Evan's shoulder. This position provides a superb look at Sophia's stunning physique (her boobs are sumptuous) as well as Evan's first class fucking technique. While Evan fucks her, Sophia frantically jacks her clit...the combination fucking/jacking action makes Sophia cum like a volcano. Of course, tight close-ups highlight the in-and-out action.
Popshot: Sophia kneels on the floor and looks up imploringly at Evan as he strokes his cock inches from her wide-open mouth. Soon, his pop fills her mouth and splatters her face and chin. She then sucks his cock dry and swallows his load. As in Scene One, this scene concludes with some more erotic and glamorous footage of Sophia--she even kisses her own reflection in a mirror!

I've collected photos of stunningly beautiful Jesse Capelli for several years. Now, thanks to Club Jenna, I get to see her do more than pose in sexy still photos...albeit she only performs with women on screen. However, being a major fan of girl/girl sex, I'm definitely not complaining. In Scene Three, Jesse has a Sapphic encounter with one of the nastiest girls in the business, Melissa Lauren. Again, this beautifully shot scene proves that director Jenna Jameson can serve up scenes that are not only hotter than hell, but also aesthetically pleasing as well. This beautiful scene does, however, lack one important ingredient. As a female orgasm junkie, I'm disappointed that the hot sex shared by Melissa and Jesse didn't end in an orgasm for either of them. And, I wish there were more than two positions in the scene. Three and one-half stars.
Tease: Feeling more like behind-the-scenes than a tease, images of Jesse on and around a magnificent staircase splash across the scene. She licks her lips (God, that's sexy footage!), poses seductively, caresses her superb flesh, and strokes her hair. She also rides a mechanical bull (you know, like the kind they have in country-western bars) in slow motion.
Foreplay 1: Cunnilingus. While Jesse continues to ride the bull, Melissa, dressed in an outfit that matches Jesse's, steps behind the bull. Melissa bends Jesse down onto her belly so that her ass is high in the air and her delicious genitals are easily accessible. Then, Melissa gorges herself on Jesse's pussy. The girls take turns "riding" atop the bull...when one girl rides, the other girl eats her out and strokes her flesh. There is a particularly compelling segment in which Melissa's pussy and Jesse's pierced tongue literally fill the widescreen display. Of course, Jesse's tongue disappears into Melissa's succulent folds. As you might imagine, Melissa loves Jesse's tongue and squeals with delight. Later, Jesse four-finger-fucks Melissa's cunt and jacks her clit while inflaming her lust with lots of naughty language and intense eye contact.
Position 1: Reverse cowgirl. Melissa, wearing a strap-on cock, lies back on a staircase. Jesse straddles Melissa reverse cowgirl style, and fucks the toy with long strokes as the camera zooms in on her nicely manicured vagina. In due course, the camera zooms back out so that we can savor Jesse's alluring breasts and oh-so-womanly belly. Damn, I LOVE this...and I've been waiting a long time to see it! Jesse continues to fuck Melissa's strap-on dick while, at the same time, jacking her own clit. This, of course, causes Jesse's blood to boil...and her pussy to drip.
Position 2: Doggie anal. After some transitioning footage that features glamour clips of Jesse modeling for us, Melissa lies on her belly on a staircase so that her head is toward the bottom of the stairs and her ass higher. Then, while roughly pulling on Melissa's hair, Jesse forcefully pounds her asshole with a long and fat dildo. While reaming Melissa's anus, Jesse sharply spanks her butt cheeks. And, she makes Melissa clean the dildo using ATM. Those of you who have foot fetishes will appreciate how Jesse suckles the long heels of Melissa's shoes during this segment. For my part, I really enjoyed the fucking nasty commentary the girls share while they please each other. And, I enjoyed watching their bare asses as they walked hand-in-hand up the staircase after they've sated one another.
Ashton Moore and Manuel Ferrara share a delicious one-on-one in Scene Four. This all-vaginal squirt-inducing boy/girl scene features lots of delicious foreplay and rates a solid five stars.
Tease: Outside, against a backdrop of a decadent Romanesque courtyard and pool, stunning and voluptuous blond Ashton Moore, dressed in blue satin bra and panties and "covered" with a feathery boa, dances and moves erotically as the camera pans across her muscular body and tight ass. Interspersed with this tease footage are clips of Ashton primping in front of a mirror, getting ready, as it were, for sex with Manuel. Then, to lure her man with music, Ashton sits on an attractive couch and plays the cello!
Foreplay 1: Kissing. Ashton's ploy reaps major benefits when Manuel joins her, sits behind her on the couch, strokes her hair and luscious curves and sensuously licks her neck. Soon, all thoughts of the cello are banished from Ashton's mind as she and Manuel share a very serious--yet playful--kiss.
Foreplay 2: Fellatio. Amorous Ashton soon tires of kissing...she wants something more in her mouth. So, she bends down, takes Manuel's already engorged cock out of his pants, and gobbles it like it was a lollypop! While Ashton lovingly sucks, licks, and strokes Manuel's lucky penis, he, in turn, squeezes her ripe ass cheeks, plays with her golden locks, and caresses her flesh. During fellatio, Manuel and Ashton share sweet kisses and lots of endearing words.
Foreplay 3: Cunnilingus. Ashton sheds her clothes, leans back on the couch, and spreads her legs wide so that Manuel can kneel before her and worship her vagina with his tongue. Manuel must like pussy as much as I do because he literally attacks her stunning and dripping pink vagina and bejeweled clit with his gluttonous tongue. Of course, Ashton really likes his technique and proves it by arching her back and squealing with delight.
Foreplay 4: Finger-fucking. This segment is truly one of the highlights of Jenna's Provocateur. As Ashton balances herself above the couch, Manuel works his wonders by pounding her pussy and massaging her G-Spot until she squirts and squirts and squirts--all over the fucking couch! This footage is yet another reason to put Jenna's Provocateur on your must-have list.
Position 1: Doggie. Once Ashton's squirting spasms have receded, Manuel bends her over the couch and fucks her like a dog from behind. Manuel is absolutely relentless and pounds her with insatiable force and vigor...leaving her breathless. And, to increase her pleasure even more, he spanks her ass and pulls her blond hair. Ashton loves it and screams for him to "Fuck me harder."
Position 2: Reverse cowgirl. Ashton really shines in reverse...her insatiable cunt completely swallows Manuel's huge cock as she tosses her hot, shapely, and lithe body up and down like a jack-in-the-box on steroids. Soon, Manuel becomes so enraged that he fucks her back. Frankly, it's amazing that they never uncoupled during this frenzy...perhaps it's because Manuel's cock is so long.
Position 3: Cowgirl. After an abrupt edit, Ashton and Manuel wildly fuck each other cowgirl style. As she tosses her super-sexed body up and down, Ashton's long and curly blond locks bounce and gyrate attractively while she encourages Manuel with lots of provocative words.
Popshot: Ashton, kneeling on the floor, looks up expectantly and longingly to Manuel as he explodes all over her face and into her wide-open and greedy mouth. Manuel's powerful, explosive, and voluminous popshot keeps cumming and cumming until sweet Ashton's face is plastered white. Ashton then licks and strokes Manuel's quivering rod as his spasms recede. As was the case in previous scenes, we are then treated to some more glamour shots of pretty Ashton.
If you have read my reviews for the past few years, you know I'm a major fan of Krystal Steal. I've been disappointed that she hasn't appeared in too many movies lately. However, her performance in Scene Five of Jenna's Provocateur is so stellar--perhaps one of the best of her career--that I can almost forgive the gods for keeping Krystal out of the limelight for the past couple of years. In this scene, with Barrett Blade, Krystal looks and performs at the top of her career. Five stars.
Tease: As in the previous scenes, Scene Five begins with an MTV-style glamour shoot featuring Krystal Steal as she poses, moves erotically, and caresses her own superb curves. Krystal appears in more than one alluring outfit--and wears lots of attractive jewelry--as sexy clips of her are stitched together effectively.
Foreplay: Cunnilingus. Barrett joins Krystal, slips her sculpted boob out of her dress so he can squeeze it, nuzzles her inviting neck, and kisses her welcoming open mouth. Then, he bends her over, doggie style, to reveal her gorgeous panty-less butt and scrumptious genitals. He squeezes and caresses her perfect ass cheeks and shapely thighs and then kneels behind her so that he can gorge himself on her tasty twat. Barrett attacks Krystal's pussy in much the same way I would...he uses his tongue to tease her labia, to rim her asshole, and to probe her delicious vagina. He also finger-fucks her pussy and asshole (I don't think I've ever seen her take fingers in her ass before.). Krystal's body reacts volcanically as her groans and shouts betray her lust. God, I wish I were in Barrett's place right now!
Foreplay 2: Fellatio. Krystal literally devours Barrett's cock balls deep as she attacks it with her commodious mouth. In addition to using her mouth very effectively, Krystal also uses her hands to twist around Barrett's shaft. Damn, that must feel good! And, she even lets him fuck her throat!
Position 1: Missionary. Barrett slips his cock into Krystal's superb vagina and pounds her relentlessly as she lies back on a satin-covered bed and groans ecstatically and encourages him, "Yeah, fuck my pussy! Gimme that fuckin' cock!" Barrett does the lady's bidding and pounds her through a prolonged screaming orgasm that leaves her babbling incoherently. Meanwhile, we get to savor Krystal's superb body as the camera pans back and forth across her curves.
Position 2: Doggie. Did you ever think about how fine it must be to fuck Krystal doggie style? Her gnarly tailbone tattoo gives me a hard-on every time I think about it. Consider how much better it would be to fuck her tight cunt while savoring that ornate inking! Barrett must agree because the pounding he gives her is frantic and very physical--and very well photographed!
Position 3: Reverse cowgirl. If you want to know why I adore Krystal Steal, just watch her magnificent body as she fucks the shit out of Barrett reverse cowgirl style while he basically lies back and enjoys the ride. Well, Barrett's not entirelyinert...he grabs hold of--and squeezes--Krystal's muscular butt cheeks and shapely waist. While she acrobatically fucks Barrett, Krystal makes the action even more bone-stiffening by stroking her own flesh and by talking nasty as she pounds him to heaven and back.
Position 4: Cowgirl. Barrett gets a chance to do the thrusting when Krystal mounts him cowgirl style. As he hurls his cock in-and-out of Krystal's pussy at redline speed, Barrett gets to savor her perfectly-sculpted tits, hard belly, long, flowing, blond hair, and mischievous face. And, he gets to kiss her mouth and rub his hands all over her delectable body, too. What a ride! Unlike Barrett, however, I would have suckled Krystal's tits. I can't understand why he didn't!
Popshot: Barrett shocks the hell out of Krystal when his extremely high-velocity and very voluminous ejaculation splatters her face, eyes, and hair with semen. After his seemingly never-ending spasms subside, Krystal sucks him dry. Then, we're treated to some more glamorous footage of Krystal posing and teasing.
McKenzie Lee and Chanel St. James (Club Jenna's newest contract girl in purportedly her first-ever sex scene) share some intense girl-on-girl action in this four-and-one-half-star scene.
Tease: Both McKenzie and Chanel strut their stuff for us--in varying stages of undress--as hard-driving music fills the air. We get to see glimpses of their "assets" as this special-effects-enhanced footage splashes across the screen.
Foreplay: Cunnilingus and fingers. The girls begin by kissing passionately and then McKenzie takes the lead by licking and hungrily suckling Chanel's erect nipples (McKenzie uses lots of saliva to lubricate the works!). Meanwhile, each girl uses her hands to please the other girl's panty-clad pussy. Then, McKenzie bends Chanel over, doggie style, so that she can spread her labia and then stroke, lick, suckle, and tongue- and multiple-finger-fuck her spit-soaked pussy. McKenzie also rims Chanel's pretty asshole and spanks her shapely butt cheeks. Meanwhile, the girls motivate each other with nasty talk: "Fuck me like a bad little bitch!" Later, Chanel repays McKenzie's kindness by ravenously eating McKenzie's pussy while squatting beneath her. McKenzie ups the stakes substantially by rubbing her scrumptious cunt all over Chanel's pretty face. Wow! McKenzie really knows how to fuck a face! In due course, Chanel expertly uses her fingers to rub McKenzie's slippery labia and jack her clit. And, she vigorously squeezes McKenzie's boobs, too. Of course, McKenzie reacts with insatiable passion. Very effective camera angles and close-ups keep the action in-your-face at all times throughout this segment.
Position 1: Standing. Chanel leans against a windowsill and McKenzie kneels at her feet. Then, McKenzie again attacks Chanel's pussy with her tongue, fingers, and spanks. Chanel loves it so much that her entire body trembles: "I fuckin' like it...a LOT!" Emboldened, wicked McKenzie then multiple-finger-fucks Chanel's pussy while, at the same time, using other fingers to frantically jack her clit. Chanel's body responds by undulating erotically and by climaxing. Afterward, McKenzie gives Chanel fingersful of her own cum to eat.
Position 2: Reverse cowgirl anal. McKenzie, sporting a bright red strap-on cock, sits on a stark black chair while McKenzie straddles her and anally fucks the shit out of the toy cock. Superb camera angles and close-ups capture the action as McKenzie thrusts and undulates her body to force the dildo ever deeper into her tight asshole. Meanwhile, Chanel reaches around from behind to stroke and spank McKenzie's fleshy labia and to spread them wide so we can see deep into her tempting hole. Throughout this segment, the girls inflame each others' lust with naughty talk: "You're my dirty fucking whore!" This is VERY erotic footage!
Position 3: Reverse cowgirl DP. While continuing to fuck Chanel's strap-on, McKenzie shoves another toy into her drenched pussy and fucks herself forcefully while simultaneously jacking her own clit. Chanel gets really turned on by the wickedness: "I want you to cum all over that thing." Soon later, McKenzie does just that...and then gives Chanel the dildo to suck clean. Then, after shoving the dildo back into her cunt to get it covered with her own cum, McKenzie takes both the dildo and the strap-on toys into her mouth at the same time and sucks them clean.
Position 4: Doggie. McKenzie dons the strap-on and then, after bending Chanel over into the doggie positions, reams her juicy pussy from behind. And, McKenzie spanks Chanel's pretty butt and makes her lick the toy clean, too. Chanel loves it and, in due course, cums again. Then, she again sucks the toy cock squeaky clean and then shows her appreciation by gobbling McKenzie's erect nipples. Absolutely superb camera work highlights this incendiary action. If you like girl/girl action, you're gonna be in heaven!
Video (technical): I have mixed thoughts related to the video. In commentary I've read about Jenna's Provocateur, Jenna has expounded upon the virtues of using film--rather than digital video--to capture movies. I know that many "purist" photographers prefer the so-called "lushness" of film over the "perfection" of digital. I, on the other hand, have worked with both film and digital-based images for over 30 years and I must admit that I like digital much better than film. In particular, film grain has always annoyed me...especially in portions of images that are dark. Footage in Jenna's Provocateur exhibits a great deal of grain. Yes, the image is luxuriant and rich. Yet, it's also soft and "noisy." Digital video--and high-definition in particular--is grain free and exhibits almost no noise. So, being a techno-photographer, I prefer HD DV to film. That said, the lighting, special effects, camera angles, and photography are really very good. I really suggest you watch the behind-the-scenes feature that appears on Disc 2. It shows just how much care was given to the technical aspects of filming Jenna's Provocateur. I must hand it to Jenna and her husband Justin Sterling...job well done! Overall, I liked the music-video-style editing and post-production special effects. I must admit, however, that I didn't care for some of the transitioning footage between positions. For example, sometimes a transition will consist of some shaky camera motions. Other times, footage of the electronic "clapper" (you know, the black and white board with a hinged stick on top that is clapped at the beginning of a take) will be used to transition from one position to another. I think that's corny, to say the least. And, old-fashioned footage of text announcing "Act One," "Act Two," and so forth begin each sex scene. On the other hand, I am pleased to report that the film imagery was digitized very nicely and is displayed in wide-screen format (letterboxed) on my computer monitor. Bottom line, I think the video was well done, although I disagree with both the use of film and the transitioning footage. Four and one-half stars.
Audio (technical): Although I have mixed emotions about the video, I believe the 5.1 digital audio is absolutely outstanding. First, the musical soundtrack, while being extremely supportive of the action, does not overpower the sounds of the performers. Second, although there is no "plot," per se, the words and sounds uttered by the performers are perfectly clear and audible. Finally, the audio is provided in four versions: English 5.1 Dolby Digital (both music and moans/groans), 5.1 that emphasizes the moans and groans, 5.1 that emphasizes the music, and a commentary version featuring Jenna Jameson and Justin Sterling. Five stars.
Extras: The Extras are spread across both of the two DVDs included in the collector's edition box. Disc one contains the movie and star-specific special features. For example, my "Krystal Steal" version of Jenna's Provocateur contains a nearly six-minute self-running slide show of Krystal-specific photos and an eight and one-half up-close-and personal masturbation scene that, of course, features Krystal. Disc One also contains links to several Club Jenna-related websites. Disc two contains a very informative Behind-the-Scenes featurette. It includes lots of interviews with Jenna as well as highlights of the processes (including lots of "waiting") that occurred during filming. In one tense situation, the neighbors complained about the noise the "fuckers" were making and almost shut down production. There are also trailers for several recent Club Jenna releases, six self-running photo galleries featuring the Club Jenna contract girls, and a song-by-song selection of the music, performed by Spout, that comprises the soundtrack of Jenna's Provocateur. Five stars.
Aesthetics: The production values in Jenna's Provocateur are all first class. I've already mentioned the sumptuous locations, stunning wardrobe, shimmering jewelry, and superb make-up. In addition, the music is superb. Not only are the individual pieces well written and performed, but they also expertly support the on-screen action with just the right feel at the right time. Finally, the "Special Limited Edition Collector's Series" packaging is among the best I've seen. Not only is the box itself well made and very attractive, but it also contains a 16-page booklet that recaps the scenes and the girls who make up Jenna's Provocateur. Five stars.
