Kimberly Kane’s Been Blackmaled
Director: Kimberly Kane
Cast: Kimberly Kane, Prince Yahshua, Lily LaBeau, Naomi Banxxx, Bobbi Starr, Lexington Steele, Asphyxia Noir, Skin Diamond, Tee Reel, Jon Jon
Length: 175:57 minutes
Kimberly Kane with Prince
Date of Production: 4/7/2011 to 4/9/2011
Extras: For many, the best extra will be the scene between Aiden Starr and Tyler Knight from “Live In My Secrets” that lasted 17:49 minutes. A stylish little scene shot in 8mm film, the scene was admittedly quirky and artistic, getting better for me when it reverted to video and the BDSM aspects were slightly less dominating. There was also a 26:42 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, a lot of fun footage of Kimberly and the others in the cast offered up. Then came some trailers, a photogallery, some spam and even a “special offer” for those with a smart phone.

Audio/Video Quality: Kimberly Kane’s Been Blackmaled was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Kimberly Kane for Vivid. This standard definition project was actually shot in high definition by camera operators B. Skow and Scarlett Von Cutter, some portions using an artistic 8mm film while the majority relied on the usual video to capture the interracial action of the director and her pals. As such, the production was not nearly as cookie cutter formulaic as most such releases to date, the editing by Jack Freedom and art direction by Aiden Starr showing that a variety of input allowed some visually appealing antics to enhance the replay value and strokability of the otherwise standard interracial affair, the emphasis on enhancing the look of the ladies a definite plus as far as I was concerned. The fleshtones were accurate and the various measures used to keep the action flowing made this one well worth watching repeatedly though, a step or two up from some of the previous volumes in the series. The only consistent visual flaw would be the company logo watermark in the lower right hand corner. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 48 kHz sampling rate and 256 Kbps bitrate, the audio sometimes not as impressive as the often 4.6+ Mbps video bitrate in terms of quality but some care surely shown here as well. The music and vocals were blended nicely, little touches standing out as proving someone paid attention to the outcome.

Body of Review: Kimberly Kane has long been on the radar here at Xcritic as a “must see” performer able to combine actual acting talent with a wide variety of sexual skills to stand out from the crowd over the multitude of “flavor of the month” type of performers. This has given her some career longevity well beyond the average 6 months so many of her peers have enjoyed, the young lady enjoying herself in scores of performances to the point where she is literally always up for numerous awards. While her exploits in front of the camera lens are what draws her legion of fans, she has also displayed some talent behind the scenes as a director, her latest release for Vivid called Kimberly Kane’s Been Blackmaled. Like previous releases in the series, it shows Kimberly encountering black male partners in full trysts, forever casting aside the naysayers who fuss because she has not done a lot of interracial in her public performances. Given the strength of past volumes (including Savanna Samson and Janine), I knew that Kimberly would knock it out of the park sexually, her wisdom in selecting a great crew and some equally interesting performers to round out the scenes (a few appealing lesbian scenes with babes like Lily LaBeau, Skin Diamond, and Asphyxia Noir; Bobbi Starr doing the infamous Lexington Steele) making this all the more likely to generate some favorable buzz. The back cover described it like this: “Kimberly Kane takes on her darkest challenge yet! In this voodoo style fuck fantasy shot in (Super 8mm film & HD video) every scene is it's own world of mysterious creation. The fetish of interracial sex has always been Kane's most coveted desire. Pull back the red velvet curtain, destroy your inhibitions and witness Kimberly Kane being Blackmaled.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Skin Diamond and Asphyxia Noir
Scene One: Kimberly Kane, the brunette featured on the front cover, was up first with Prince Yahshua, her makeup done and the gal kissing him until kneeling down to slob his knob. She couldn’t wait to get his big black cock into her mouth, Kimberly begging him and offering extra pay for some POV footage as she rubbed her pussy. The jaded reviewer in me would suggest the level of her excitement was directly tied to her paycheck except she savored his rod and balls so thoroughly, lingering in all the right places, offering superior eye contact, and all the little touches you just don’t see from those faking it, that it came across as genuine. The initial portion of the tryst was shot in black & white too, the gal taking him in hand to tease on her thick pubic mound of hair before some vaginal plowing took place. The couple then went into a small bathroom to show their need for expediency, her boots, thigh high fishnet stockings, and minimal top left on as he drilled her on the toilet. Kimberly was an active rider and Prince was up to the task of satisfying her too, her repeated taste testing of his package eventually leading to his load of genetic juice plastered all across her face. The chemistry and energy levels of the scene were terrific, even the stabs at humor enough to make me smile.
Kimberly Kane with Tee and Jon
Scene Two: Lily LaBeau, one of the hottest newcomer babes in porn, was then served up as a ponygirl for more experienced Naomi Banxxx, the interracial theme continued as Naomi dominated Lily on a ranch setting outside. I know that lipstick lesbian scenes have long been a staple in the industry but this was something different, the BDSM aspects believable enough to make it stand out from the crowded pack. The fetish attire helped support the action but it was the dynamic between the two ladies that made it worthwhile. Lily’s reddened ass cheeks and Naomi’s use of a strap on dildo were stirring and the amount of dirty talk elevated the tryst, the oral pleasuring by both of them certainly worthy of some notice.
Scene Three: Bobbi Starr, one of the most popular extreme queens in porn these days, was up next with the infamous Lexington Steele. The opening tease was shot in super 8mm like many other parts of the movie, conveying enough artful eroticism to make the most snobbish auteur types appreciate it while the rest of the world will be gladly working their junk over to fruitful bliss. That led to Bobbi slowly walking over to the bed where Lex was resting, her fleshy ass looking ripe for the plucking as she sauntered just slowly enough to generate some sexual tension. She then gave him a sloppy hummer, Lex briefly reciprocating to get her wet, and the vaginal boning proceeded in earnest. While Bobbi did not throat him as I would have liked, she made up for it in how easily she took him inside her snatch, the thick pubic hair left on top of her crotch punctuating the pussy play as she felt his entire manhood rise up inside of her. This soon led to the anal action one would expect of the two, Bobbi becoming even more active and engaging in a multitude of taste testing (both PTM and ATM) along the way. While Lex remained naked, Bobbi favored keeping her thigh high boots and eccentric necklace on too, the cameras catching the action from a variety of angles and never relying so heavily on close ups as weaker competitors seem so willing to do. By the time this chemistry filled tryst ended, Lex blasting his wealth of population pudding all over her torso and pussy, the smile on her face was as prominent as her look of satisfaction (not to mention exhaustion).
Scene Four: Asphyxia Noir and Skin Diamond were up next in another lesbian pairing, the couple certainly making my “weirdest coupling of the week” list. There was a voodoo/witchcraft vibe given off by the makeup and surroundings but it was the playfulness of their pairing that worked best for me. They used toys vaginally and anally to compliment the oral tricks here, Skin’s ass looking perfect as the rounded rump was penetrated from behind by the alt-ish Asphyxia. The slow, sensual dynamic involved did not change when they switched roles on the toy use either, the use of leg strap on dildos curious compared to their more common version but still a welcome sight given the manner in which they were used. In all, I found the previous lesbian scene in the movie hotter (and kinkier) but I found no fault with this one outside of some minor artistic choices.
Scene Five: Kimberly Kane, up again to explore her interracial fantasies, was tied up and blindfolded as she was ravaged by Tee Reel and Jon Jon. While completely consensual, there was a definite edge to the artistic opening, the men enjoying their roles in satisfying her desires. They freed her to help her clean up in a small bathroom, their hands working her over until she reciprocated orally on their peckers from a wash tub and standing position. Then Tee took her from behind as she blew Jon, the trio moving to a bed to go further with anal and a DP (Kimberly’s first listed interracial DP from what the cover stated) using all the trimmings. Kimberly did some solid oral on her partners and gave off a vibe that she was into the scene, some throating lying on her stomach while getting fucked hard a favorite position for me to watch. Kimberly was an active rider and provided a stream of dirty talk that would cause a sailor to blush, one load of spunk landing on her face with the other was jerked off using her feet to conclude a very solid offering (interracial or otherwise).
Summary: Kimberly Kane’s Been Blackmaled by director Kimberly Kane for Vivid was a far cry from the movies the company put out for some many years, the kinkier edges on par with anything else the market has to offer but done in such a way that fans of hers will definitely need to pick up a copy of their own. The chemistry and energy in each scene was excellent, the strokability and replay value superior, and the diversity of action a major upgrade from previous volumes in the series. The many creative touches included here (courtesy of the crew mentioned prominently above) also added something special to the release as well, so I rated it as an Xcritic Pick because it earned the title beyond her established fan base or those seeking some heated interracial action, it was a showstopper that could ignite more interest in the genre. In short, Kimberly Kane’s Been Blackmaled had everything advertised and more, the wealth of sex positive aspects it provided shoring up Kimberly’s status as going beyond mere strumpet with a smoking hot (all natural) body. It should also be mentioned that her peers generated significant heat in their trysts as well, marking this release as one well worth picking up for your collections.
