Extras: The separate extras included a cast list, a company promotional trailer, a photogallery, some websites, and trailers. Unlike most companies, Aiden adds the behind the scenes footage into the movie itself (which boosts running time though it means repeated viewings tend to force one to skip that material). For the most part, the BTS showed the chemistry of the cast as they chatted, enjoyed each other’s presence, and showed a ton of nudity but it added to the value of the show for me regardless of the placement.
Audio/Video Quality: Aiden Riley’s Snail Trails was presented in the usual 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Aiden Riley for Evil Angel. The camera work seemed to rely on a single camera shooting the trysts in basic settings, be they a white room with no distractions or contemporary living room (especially for the BTS material included). The lighting was not bad as a result but the resolution of the camera was well below what I am used to elsewhere, the raw energy captured well enough either way. The camera angles were a mixed batch and the relative lack of editing an interesting approach, a company watermark located on the lower right corner for those keeping track. In any case, the audio was presented in a similar fashion with a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering that sounded hollow with no separation between the channels and no music to bore you with. Still, it was similar to most gonzo titles out at this time, the sonic portion less important to most fans than the visuals.
Body of Review: Aiden Riley is often considered a behind the scenes guy at Evil Angel, but these days the man has taken over production of their movies earning him full cover credits. His latest sent for review is called Aiden Riley’s Snail Trails, a decidedly different kind of lesbian outing that expands on some themes from earlier shows, your mileage may vary as to how hot the acts are. The double disc set is a series of four lengthy lesbian scenes showcasing women who enjoy oral (giving and getting) but also using some slimy lubricant to diddle and otherwise slime each other with, this type of thing done previously on a smaller scale. There were some toys this time and the four primary scenes had some passionate moments, fans of hardcore lesbian action sure to appreciate this. For me, the stand out scenes were Chastity Lynn doing Kristina Rose and Chanel Preston with Dana DeArmond but all four scenes included the same basic type of thing so you might either like it completely or not, it will depend on what you like to see.
The company website described the title like this: “As porn icon Belladonna's partner in crime, it's no surprise that director Aiden Riley has developed some kinky fetishes. With "Snail Trails," Aiden's newest two-disc release, he's created a special niche for fans devoted to sloppy lesbian play. The "Snail Trails" of the title happen when gorgeous, young girls fill each other's messy pussy and asshole with thick, drippy, slimy lube ... then queef out clear, gluey streams and spread the stringy, sticky goop all over their naked bodies! Of course there's plenty of the intimate, revealing behind-the-scenes footage Aiden and Bella have made famous. The petite duo of American Latina fireball Kristina Rose and sweet blonde Chastity Lynn inject their pretty twats with clear grease, then squirm in syrupy puddles as they fuck each other with glistening dildos. Chastity's bald slit squirts a viscous wad of lubricant between her sassy girlfriend's tiny tits! All-natural beauties Cassandra Nix and Maddy O'Reilly indulge in a personal session of Sapphic lust while slathered in slime. Cassandra and Maddy swap mouthfuls of girl glaze, grinding their slick pussies to climax. Busty beauty Chanel Preston and lovely, lanky Dana DeArmond suck each other's sexy feet and ruin their sheer lingerie with a well-lubed box lunch. And stunning Karina White shares a romantic, anally explicit date with perky blonde Kelly Surfer; they decorate their nether parts with gooey gel. If you're looking for sensuous lesbian action with a saucy twist, "Snail Trails" is a sticky mess o' fun. Happy 'Trails' to you!” Here’s a very brief look at the cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Chastity Lynn, the light haired booty queen seen on the right side of the front cover, and her mentor, brunette Kristina Rose, pictured pawing her ample ass, were up first in the white room in colorful lingerie as they caressed and otherwise teased one another. Kristina was in a sheer purple bikini and Chastity was in a pink leotard, both ladies rubbing themselves to orgasms and kissing. They had lots of chemistry together and the ladies gobbled gash, rimmed ass, and fingered to get off before the titular lube was inserted to provide a lot of gooey snail trail fun. The turkey baster applied the clear substance and it must have tasted okay, the ladies perhaps favoring the usual genetic juice, population pudding or spunk typically seen in he fuck flicks but showing no issues with this stuff either. Of the two, Chastity proved to be more flexible though this is exactly the type of show I associate with Kristina, a gal without any hesitations on what gets her freak on. The sexual tryst ended at about the hour mark, leading into lengthy BTS which started with Kristina not showing much care about the AVN awards (unless she wins something, she leaves according to her own words; the gal well known for her freedom of verbal expression).
Scene Two: Cassandra Nix and Maddy O’Reilly, a very sensual duo of lean young newcomers to porn (relatively speaking mind you), were up next in the white room as they kissed and held each other. They both wore bikini undies and probed any spot they felt like, the slow pace of the scene a lot different than the last one. They ate box and spent a lot of time just physically getting to know one another, the large basters filled with goo to start the snail trail dynamic coming across as unneeded to me given their physical appeal, strings of the substance trailing all over each other as they liberally applied it wherever they saw fit. That they also put copious amounts of it in their mouths was disgusting but they did give me the impression they were into this more than the usual splooge or ball batter, the strength of the scene not as solid as the last one though they could have slimed me and I would not have called Ghostbusters on them. Their BTS was nearly an hour too, longer than their actual scene for those keeping track.
Scene Three: Chanel Preston, a multi-award winning hotty with awesome curves, and gonzo extreme queen extraordinaire Dana DeArmond, were up next as the first scene on the second disc. They began by wearing sexy lingerie next to each other in the white room, Chanel looking like she had very little makeup on her face. Dana quickly started digging for clams on her friend and savored the experience, her senses alive as she smelled Chanel, licking the wet spot on her panties and getting some head in return too. Chanel pulled out the baster and filled it with lube, the messy junk being applied liberally to Dana’s ass crack and snatch, the gal licking it up off the floor to continue their embrace. Both went down on the other and there was some foot play involved, the pussy fating seeming a bit gross but the mess made by the use of the goo still worse on all accounts. Of particular interest was the massive amount of streamers coming from them when they pulled their legs apart during the tribbling event, rubbing their pussies together in sexy fashion while maintaining solid eye contact. They continued giving head and doing foot fetish acts too, sliding around in the resulting mess before the nearly 45 minute scene finished up to go to the lengthy BTS footage (Dana complaining about the new guys in the industry and spreading some gossip but Chanel giving some too).
Scene Four: Karina White and Kelly Surfer, another sexy duo, were up last as they pawed each other during a marathon kissing session while wearing much more expansive outfits in the white room. They slowly made their way down to lick boob and suck nipple, some ass kissing and pussy munching leading to a few small toys being deployed. The basters full of goo then came out along with larger toys, vibrators shoved in to make best use of the slime coursing around the nether regions of the ladies and fly all over the place. They applied some dirty talk as they continued, some fingering and mutual masturbation punctuating the silly noises provided, this scene the shortest of them all by a lot even if it was nearly as nasty in terms of the slimy lubricant deployed.

Summary: Aiden Riley’s Snail Trails by Aiden Riley for Evil Angel was fun to watch, the strokability and replay value enhanced by the amounts of chemistry in the scenes and the substantial body of BTS footage serving as the primary extra so it earned a rating of Recommended, the primary kink being the use of sloppy amounts of lubricant in and around the ladies, the concept of a snail trail not lost on a guy who favored them (though the trail was comprised of a woman’s natural secretions back in my day) when Aiden was still a whelp. This was a back to basics approach, the raw energy and passion of the performers again trumping the technical matters handled by Aiden, the man credited more readily for his role in making Belladonna’s movies of late with cover credit. In short, Aiden Riley’s Snail Trails was not a full service type of gonzo and the lesbian action was not marred by an abundance of toys in most cases, the resulting sexual trysts able to stand the test of time better by relying on the aspects so few in porn seem to offer so give this one a chance to end up in your collections if you appreciate fine ass play and lesbian antics.
