Swingers (DVD+ Blu-Ray Combo)
click for link to trailer
Director: Robby D.
Cast: Jesse Jane, Manuel Ferrara, Riley Steele, Vicki Chase, James Deen, Pauly Harkness, Kayden Kross, Marcus London
Length: 107:49 minutes
Date of Production: 4/29/2011
Extras: In terms of extras, the 9:57 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jamall Johnson (and edited by Ryder) was the best for me. It was cute and allowed the contract ladies to have some fun, the special effects applied in curious manner but never really weakening the fun factor the ladies appeared to be having on set. The inclusion of a standard DVD copy was nice too but I’m a Blu-ray fan thanks to the enhanced technical values, perhaps those who prefer one format might get with someone that likes the other to each get what they want. There was a photogallery and some trailers but that was all.
Jesse Jane with Manuel
Audio/Video Quality: Swingers was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 widescreen as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The movie package included both the standard definition DVD as well as the Blu-ray disc, each looking exceptionally sharp and clear though the high definition version was a really nice upgrade. Evul Atheng handled the editing here, his talents making this one stand out in a favorable manner. The audio was also clear in both versions (post production added surround sound), the difference less striking but the production sounded like the vocals, music, and ambient noises were all put together well enough, nobody credited with the overall sound elements. The high definition version of this movie was a decidedly minor upgrade this time, some portions of the show seemingly rushed or otherwise not cared for as much as usual but the feature elements seemed more pronounced too.
Body of Review: Robby D. is the director responsible for most movies coming out of Digital Playground these days, the resulting titles showing a great deal of technical care while showcasing some of the hottest ladies currently in porn. Such was the case with pleasing Swingers, a showcase title for contract hotties Jesse Jane, Kayden Kross, and Riley Steele. The feature elements were centered on a kind of mind fuck by one of the new roommates, the consequences unfolding in heated sexual manner but ultimately leaving me wanting better closure (I know it’s porn but feature porn requires something more to work right). The back cover described the movie like this: “The gorgeous Riley Steele plays a naughty game on her new roommates. By acting like she and her sexy stud are hot for swinging with other horny couples, she convinces the beautiful ladies that live with her, Jesse Jane and Kayden Kross, to screw each other's hung boyfriends, Marcus London and Manuel Ferrara, for a night of wild sex. The party begins as curious minds meet perverted intentions and teasing turns into deep sucking and hand banging. Lusty temptation rocks Riley's house when fucking erupts in every room.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Vicki Chase with Pauly
Scene One: Jesse Jane, the reigning contract performer featured on the lower half of the front cover, was up first after Manuel Ferrara started going through her box of college mementos. He found a pocket rocket vibrator and their discussion led to them making out on a bed, Manuel gobbling her gash aggressively and savoring her ass as she moaned loudly. Jesse than inhaled his pecker before jumping on it to ride actively, her passion for penis again established as she bounced on his cock. Manuel then started rubbing the small vibrator on her asshole as they fucked, even Jesse inserting it for a technical DP as her sweet ass rippled delightfully well. The positions changed at times and they kissed some more, additional chemistry displayed by their eye contact and further taste testing (Jesse appearing to toss his salad briefly as well). The scene ended when she gave him a foot job, Jesse licking his population pudding off her feet to impress him.
Kayden Kross with Marcus
Scene Two: Riley Steele (the babe on the upper left corner of the front cover), Vicki Chase, James Deen, and Pauly Harkness, were up next. While the scene was actually two scenes edited into one (they kept bouncing back and forth between each other), I count it as one for the purposes of this review. Vicki did Pauly on the bed while Riley took care of James on the garish red furniture, the men gobbling gash and eating lady ass before the couples vaginally fucked in a largely active vaginal manner. There were some blowjobs too but they seemed edited down to the absolute bare minimum, the active riding taking more of an important role at this point in the movie. Riley always seems to enjoy working with James and this scene was no different, her eye contact perhaps not as good but still enough to establish this was a well liked partner. Vicki was a little fuck bunny too, better built Pauly coming across as a lower tier worker this time but having plenty to work with given Vicki’s wonderfully ripe ass. Vicki then took a wad of spunk to her face while Riley knelt for her dose of ball batter in the living room, Riley given more time to provide some post coital head as a result of editing.
Scene Three: Kayden Kross, the deliciously sexy blond seen on the upper middle of the front cover, was up next in bed with muscular Marcus London, the two cuddling before turning up the heat on each other. Some kissing led to Marcus orally pleasing her, Kayden’s wisp of pubic hair providing some contrast to her peers though her bunny tattoo seemed faded. Marcus worked her slit for a lengthy period of time compared to her coy teasing of the head of his pecker, some active vaginal positions showcasing Kayden’s wonderfully appealing ass. The dynamic showing a decidedly more likely pairing in terms of realistic couples interacting in bed, a long shot allowing her full glory to be on display rather than just a series of disconnected body parts as I have complained about in the past. She was overly loud but he was tearing into her soundly, Marcus pulling out to jizz all over her lower abdomen and provide her with the genetic juice she required.
Jesse Jane with Marcus
Scene Four: Kayden Kross, next in some skimpy black lingerie, was up immediately afterwards in bed with Manuel Ferrara, the man an upgrade according to most sources. He gobbled her gash at length and cuddled with her as they embraced, their newfound “friends with benefits” stance showing some pre-existing built up desire both thematically as well as on screen. Kayden again deployed a coyly teasing blowjob, almost a trademark move for her these days, looking at Manuel while she slowly worked his cock using her hand and mouth in unison. There appeared to be some salad tossing too but it could have been Kayden nuzzling his nuts before she jumped onto his cock to actively ride, the pair getting more into it and active as the scene progressed. There was more blowjob action between positions and Kayden found out it did take two hands to handle his whopper before more fucking. The scene closed up with Kayden kneeling at his feet to be glazed by his splooge, her eye contact sealing the deal with a squeal.
Scene Five: Jesse Jane, wearing tight jeans and a black tank top, was up last with Marcus London on a couch. Within moments of talking, she was inhaling his knob like none of the other ladies seemed willing to do, her oral superiority score rising as a result. She throated the guy and jerked him off like a truly seasoned professional, teasing him with her tongue but never for long. She provided okay eye contact but not the very best of the pack, Jesse presumably savoring the rod too much to worry about minor details as the lustful tryst continued. Marcus went back down on her cleanly shaven snatch and they then bumped uglies in close up, Jesse making all sorts of noise as he worked to get her off with hand and cock alike. Jesse was an active rider though and each of the couple gave more head, her puffy pussy the target of his seed when he tossed it out to drain his gonads.
Summary: Swingers by director Robby D. for Digital Playground earned a rating of Recommended, the trio of admired contract babes including Kayden Kross, Riley Steele, and Jesse Jane supplemented by Vicki Chase. I’d fuck any of them and each offered something different to the mix here, the feature elements of the story not quite working for me enough to consider the next level of grading. Kayden was the most fuckable to me this time in both her scenes, Jesse the most energetic, and Riley as cute a fuck bunny as you will likely ever meet (if you are so lucky) but the company has had such a strong run with these light couples features that it did not distinguish itself as readily, fans of the contract stars certainly wanting the movie for their collections. In short, Swingers gave half the contract staff another wonderful chance to fuck, the ladies coming through in spades to overcast the feature elements this time. If it had an all girl orgy at the end, it could have been mistaken as a smaller version of Digital Playground’s exceptional blockbusters of late.
