Audio/Video Quality: The Temptation of Eve was presented in a crisp, anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations. Using the talents of director of photography Eddie Powell, editor Gabrielle Anex, and the usual crew responsible for the company’s best efforts, Jacky wrote this little gem as the perfect choice to prove everything I’ve praised her for over recent times. The lighting was well done, the pacing on par with anything coming out of the competition, and the depth of the feature elements certainly helped this one stand out. As I truly enjoyed the last two volumes in the series, this one showed even more attention to detail in the technical departments, the flesh tones, the use of camera angles, and the multitude of numerous aspects focused on to make this a winner should give it great legs in coming months when nominations start for the yearly awards. There was a company watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen for those who care. The aural components by Paul Van Dik and Eddie Powell were satisfying too, the music, vocals, and ambient sounds all blended in for a welcome upgrade from the plethora of generic sounding releases I put up with on a weekly basis. As with the visual aspects of the movie, the audio portion was handled nicely, perhaps other companies will start paying more attention too.
Body of Review: Jacky St. James is a multi-talented young hotty working for New Sensations in various capacities, her works as a writer and co-director with Eddie Powell helping propel the erotica feature back into the limelight after a generation of parodies saturated the feature market. Her latest release is called The Temptation of Eve, a showcase effort starring bootilicious gonzo notable Remy LaCroix in her first major feature role carrying a flick. Going into this one, I had plenty of doubts as to whether or not Remy was up to the task, others in the field much more readily imagined in such a role as a gal caught between two lovers, but suffice it to say that Remy has now established she is more than just a smoking hot fuck bunny with a great ass. For the record, my review focuses largely on the sexual actions of the small cast and in many ways, that really doesn’t convey the qualities you will love this movie for but if the alternative is outlining every plot point as other reviewers seem so lazily apt to do, I’ll stick with my method of covering it (rather than be a prick). The back cover said this about the feature: “Thrust into an uncomfortable circumstance, Eve (Remy LaCroix) finds herself living under the same roof as Brandon (the man she shared the most intense sexual connection of her life with) and Danny (her current love whom she shares the most intimate emotional connection of her life). Her own curiosity about the man she lusted for long ago, coupled with his desperate attempts at manipulating her back into another affair, leaves Eve straddling the line between right and wrong. Will Eve succumb to Brandon's games? Or will she stay loyal to Danny, the man who continues to be her grounding force in the unpredictable, unstable world Brandon has begun to weave for both of them.”
The company press release described the movie like this: “Xander Corvus Spins a Seductive Web for Remy LaCroix in the Latest Feature. New Sensations will release the third installment of its Erotic Stories Series, The Temptation of Eve. The series, which began with critically acclaimed titles The Submission of Emma Marx and Cabaret Desire have provided fans of feature-driven porn with more edgy, sexually driven content than the love stories found in New Sensations' Romance Series. The Temptation of Eve will be no exception. The film, which stars heavy hitters, Remy LaCroix, Xander Corvus, India Summer, Bailey Blue, and Tommy Pistol, delves into the psychological challenges, Eve (LaCroix) faces when she and her current love, are forced to move in with Brandon (Corvus), a man from her past with whom she shared the most intense sexual connection of her life with. Good guy verses bad boy. Love verses lust. Past verses present. Risk verses reward. With Brandon sexually manipulating Eve at every turn and memories of their passionate affair reminding her of what she no longer has, The Temptation of Eve explores how one woman's battle with sexual resistance ultimately begins to redefine her. Remy LaCroix was certainly up for the challenge of playing the title role. "I loved playing Eve because I've been her in real life, only on a smaller scale," she says. "What girl hasn't been torn between the nice, sweet guy and the brooding, dangerous one? There is always going to be an allure to the mysterious, but in The Temptation of Eve, the mysterious guy gets more than he bargained for with Eve." Written and directed by Jacky St. James, this will be her first feature film directing solo. She previously co-directed The Submission of Emma Marx and Torn with Eddie Powell. Despite their many successes working as a team (Torn went on to win Best Couples’ Release, Best Actor, Best Actress in a Couples' Film, and Best Screenplay collectively at XBIZ and AVN during the 2013 award season) it was Powell and Scott Taylor (President of New Sensations) that encouraged St. James to direct a feature on her own. "Powell and I always joke about how I'm more of an actor's director and he's a more visual director. So for me, I wanted to play to my strengths with the story and really explore the dynamics of character and work with the performers on bringing nuances, depth, and variety to their roles. I couldn't be more pleased with the final product and the work of all the actors, especially LaCroix and Corvus who had to constantly straddle that line between right verses wrong, and love verses lust," says St. James. "Thematically, I think audiences will be able to relate to this film on one level of another. Most of us have been one or more of the characters in this film at some point in our lives." The Temptation of Eve releases on August 19th.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: India Summer, a lean brunette MILF with a tight body, was up first in a full sex scene, helping establish Xander Corvus as a sex crazed manipulator. They were on the couch and he tore her sexy attire apart to get to her great ass, giving her some oral before they kissed. This led to some full fledged gash gobbling by the man, India responding as anticipated while maintaining solid eye contact. Just as he had fingered her, she really went to town slobbing his knob, stroking his meaty member rapidly as she demonstrated what most people acquainted with her level of skill already know regarding her abilities, the couple then engaging in several positions of active vaginal riding with taste testing. Their intensity and personal chemistry seemed appealing, the couple screwing and kissing as each fulfilled their needs, his load of genetic juice tossed off on her ass. The scene cut away before anything could be done with the ball batter to the feature elements establishing him even more as a player.
Scene Two: Remy LaCroix, the popular young booty babe featured on the front cover, was up next with Tommy Pistol, the gal celebrating with him in bed after thoughts of infidelity rampaged through her head. She wore a tight gray crop top and was soon spreading her legs for Tommy to access her pussy and ass orally, his pecker porking her pussy in missionary as she moaned in enjoyment. Remy then took him into her mouth to enjoy watching him squirm in pleasure, her eye contact intensifying the moment as she applied some hand to gland friction as an enhancement to her oral skills. This led to more vaginal fucking and him rimming her juicy ass, the couple going at it one last time before he launched his population pudding all over her pussy.
Scene Three: Bailey Blue, a lean gal with light hair and tattoos, was up next with Xander Corvus. They were all over each other and making lots of noise, keeping his temporary roommates from sleeping as they pawed each other during the lengthy warm up session of kissing. He worked her blue dress away from her tits and pussy to diddle her silly, the moist patch growing as he then dropped down to eat out her partially shaven slit. She then traded places with him so she could inhale his cock enthusiastically, her eye contact really nice before they went in for the active vaginal riding done in standing position against the door. They continued on the floor as he let her bounce on his turgid rod, the dynamic of this tryst completely different from the others, each providing a different kind of experience. It ended when she finished him off with a blowjob, his spunk landing all over her as both slid to the floor to catch their respective breath.
Scene Four: Remy LaCroix, wearing a tight dress, was up last in the bathroom with Xander Corvus, both of them giving in to their past to experience a degree of intense sexuality that that could not keep ignoring. They embraced, kissed, and felt each other up with his hand on her crotch and his mouth soon replacing it. Remy responded well as he went down on her, the man devoted to tasting every fold of her labia before she gave him the briefest of blowjobs. This led to him bending her over the sink and tapping into her, Remy’s award winning ass as delightful to watch as ever as it rippled in response to his pounding penetration. They continued to kiss throughout the tryst and she soon took a moment to give him a better hummer, her eye contact and passion shining through as she focused her efforts nicely while doing as he asked of her. More active riding and him rimming her led to additional boning, Xander depositing his wad of splooge all over her crotch, the baby batter oozing down before the feature elements wrapped up in intelligent fashion.
Summary: The Temptation of Eve by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations was more than just a well polished feature in the erotica genre, it was a class act that I suspect many of the competition will find tough to beat later this year. Remy LaCroix was great in her role as “Eve” and her coworkers like Tommy Pistol, Xander Corvus, Bailey Blue, and India Summer all knocked this one out of the park in most ways. The technical aspects were a big upgrade over most titles available by others in the feature market and while the sex might not compete with some of the hardcore gonzo titles I’m used to seeing Remy do so well in, it merited a nice round of applause from more than the couples market alone. Coming from a gonzo loving raincoater like myself, that is about as big a compliment as you will find without strings attached so I rated this one as at least worthy of a Highly Recommended for a general audience, certainly more if you have enjoyed erotica features in series such as the New Sensations Erotic Stories series, this being the third volume. In short then, The Temptation of Eve was a tight little feature starring lovely Remy LaCroix in what will hopefully become the first of many she performs in from now on, a story that develops the characters and can be shared with a much wider audience than most of her titles to date so check this one out and let me know what you think.
