XCritic's Advice: Recommended


Digital Playground

Genre: Feature

Director/Writer: Robby D.

Cast: Asa Akira, James Deen, Jesse Jane, Erik Everhard, Kendall Karson, Manuel Ferrara, Jessie Rogers
Non-sex role: Jim F.

Length: 101:04 minutes

Date of Production: 6/1/2012

Extras: In terms of extras, the 11:21 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was a lot of fun, Jamal as jovial as ever and the ladies featured quite well (Willem Default editing this time). Then, for most fans (that have a Blu-ray player) the high definition copy of the movie will be most appreciated, the enhancements not the biggest upgrade I have seen from them but definitely worth it if you are watching the show on a big screen television like I do. There was also a photogallery and some trailers as well as a showcase clip of the contract ladies and a studio trailer.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Romance 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 good with the high definition version a nice upgrade. It was edited by Evul Atheng and looked good, the production providing a solid look at the trysts with a mixture of shots this time. The 5.1 Surround audio was also clear in both versions of the movie, the difference less striking than the visuals in terms of the high definition version, but Bud Greene did a good job on the audio.

Body of Review: Robby D. has had a lengthy history of making award winning movies at Digital Playground, few disputing his status as one of the go to directors for feature porn. His latest movie sent for review is called Romance, a showcase title contract starlet Jesse Jane as a writer fantasizing about becoming her own lead character for an array of sexual trysts. As I have been known to favor the blond bombshell’s exploits ever since she hit the small screen of porn, my review is likely biased in her favor but she always manages to bring something special to her movies so adjust the rating if you disagree. The back cover described the movie like this: “Beautiful Jesse Jane® stars as a successful romance novelist whose passion filled books have made her a superstar. As she writes, she can see her creations come to life and the sexual seductions of her characters are hers to command. James Deen and his girlfriend Asa Akira have a hardcore make up sex session after a tiff, when James takes control of the situation. As Jesse runs into a writer's block she catches studly Erik Everhard taking a dip in her pool. Allowing the personality of her book's character "Candace" to take her over, she slips into a tiny bikini for a naughty afternoon romp. In the book's next chapter, Jesse envisions bad boy Manuel Ferrara in a fiery lust filled fuck scene with teen dream Kendall Karson. Manuel's next hook-up is with hottie Jessie Rogers who opens up her beautiful backside for a deep anal drilling. Jesse steps back into "Candace" for a feisty fling with James. Fantasy mixes into reality as Jesse's sex life intertwines with her created characters. Will she lose herself to her own lusty desires?” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Asa Akira, wearing a revealing black top and white shorts, was up first on the couch with James Deen, the well known hotty acting standoffish while different versions of James’ attitude were tried by writer Jesse. She liked it best when James was domineering, ordering Asa over his knee to spank the Asian babe which suited her just fine. As he continued reddening her rump, her pink thong rode deep into her ass crack, her shorts lowered to give a better view as he continued warming her up. From there, he fingered her and fed her some of her own juices, Asa slobbing his knob in power mode before he gobbled her gash. He then began tapping her sweet snatch in doggy where she thanked him loudly and profusely, the gal more active in cowgirl and more vocal in missionary which led to him depositing his genetic juice all over her mouth in the chemistry filled scene.

Scene Two: Jesse Jane, the award winning blond bombshell from the cover, was up next as she took Erik Everhard up on his advances, her orange and white striped shirt with white shorts leading to her changing into a skimpy bikini in the bedroom. Little did she realize, Erik followed her into the room and after a momentary surprise, she was down on her knees inhaling his turgid member, stroking his meat while keeping excellent eye contact with him. The devoted blowjob led to Erik reciprocating soundly, his cunnilingus warming her up for some pussy pounding fun in missionary, the couple spooning before she rode him actively in cowgirl. The doggy drained his balls though, Erik unleashing his population pudding all over her curvy ass to glaze it, Jesse rubbing the semen into her skin before the next chapter of her book was written.

Scene Three: Kendall Karson, a cute brunette wearing a revealing black dress, was up next in bed with studly Manuel Ferrara, her body language signaling her desire to engage him in a tryst. She leaned over to kiss him and he soon lowered his lips to her nipples, Kendall visually displaying her appreciation as she slowly spread her legs to reveal a lack of panties. Her neatly trimmed pussy was already moist and puffy before he rubbed it and gave her some fine head, her pouty faces projecting an intensity not always seen during her scenes. He continued to go down on her ass and they then started fucking vaginally right after some face sitting and another hummer took place. They kissed as they fucked and she climbed on top of him to go all freaky, some red marks from some aggressiveness shining on her ass. They then did doggy which overloaded him into popping a nut of spunk on her face, Kendall playing with it but not swallowing any of it at all.

Scene Four: Jessie Rogers, a gorgeous blond with a killer body (reminding me of a former company contract gal), was up next on a white couch with Manuel Ferrara. She was initially jealous but a few tries at his character led him to be just what was needed for her to mount on his lap with her blue jean shorts on and sheer red top, Manuel giving her ample oral to suit her after the dry humping excited him soundly. He rimmed her and she gave him some awesome head from there, sucking his balls and stroking his pole with some throating to ready him for her shaven snatch. Some active riding led to them doing anal as well, the gal as active getting stuffed in her ass as she was in her pussy. This continued with little touches like foot fetish action until he glazed her face with splooge, Jessie providing some post coital head to end on a high note.

Scene Five: Jesse James, in her expansive bed in her loose white top and blue jean shorts when James Deen entered the picture beside her. He maneuvered over to her side of the bed with a purple vibrator in tow, Jesse in denial as she called it a “back massager” though he wasn’t buying it for a minute. He turned on the device and pressed it against her clothed crotch, Jesse soon pushing against it as the couple kissed. She sucked the toy and he inserted it into her as her clothes disappeared, his hand and mouth giving her some stimulation before she took over to masturbate for him at his beckoning. He did likewise for her and as the tension built up, she inhaled his rod briefly before they actively fucked in a few vaginal positions. Her shaven pussy was too much for him and he bust a nut of ball batter all over it, using his pecker to scoop some of his semen up to push back inside of her, a touch of post coital head finishing the movie off abruptly.

Summary: Romance by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was a small budget feature production showcasing Jesse Jane, meriting a rating of Recommended for me, the story entertaining, the sex strokable, and the ladies all offering some replay value. This was far from the over the top comedy Robby is known for but it had all the likable touches he and his team tend to provide, Jesse herself always a treat to check out. In short, Romance had enough fuck for the buck, replay value, and strokability to fuel the libido of Jesse’s fans, the young lady certainly earning her status as one of the premier ladies of porn for many years now thanks to roles like this one so give it a look and find out if it will work for you too.
