Cast: Maddy O’Reilly, Xander Corvus, Jenna J. Ross, Seth Gamble, Jodi Taylor, Logan Pierce, Chanel Preston, Ryan Driller
Length: 104:24 minutes
Date of Production: 2014
Extras: The extras included a 15:01 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, a “pick your pleasure” menu, a photogallery, trailers, spam, and some company information. The lengthy BTS by Jacky herself was comprised solely of three cast interviews (not just the women in two cases, Maddy left out for example), some bantering between the director and cast making it stand out.
Audio/Video Quality: Love Is In The Air 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 with Paul Woodcrest also on cameras, editor Gabrielle Anex, and the usual crew responsible for the company’s best efforts, Jacky applied the technical team much like she does on her other works to get things looking and sounding great. The flesh tones were accurate and the composition of most camera angles looked good, the editing as smooth as ever to draw attention away from the technical side so viewers can just enjoy the resulting four vignettes. There was a company watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen for those who care. The aural components 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 popular director at New Sensations, her works kicking the infamous Cambria List to the curb as she gives fans what they want rather than just copy the pack. Her latest release in for review is called Love Is In The Air, a set of four vignettes showing romantic sexual liaisons with appropriate partners rather than just randomly throw two performers together based on booking rate. This volume was of particular interest to me given it starred Chanel Preston and Maddy O’Reilly, plenty of nods for giving Jodi Taylor and Jenna J. Ross a scene each as well. The back cover said this about the feature: “When her fiance gets sucked into never-ending conversation at a friend's party, a woman lures him to the bedroom for a passionate sexual encounter. After getting caught up in their lives and forgetting their anniversary, a couple soon discovers that sometimes the hottest sex - is the sex you actually plan for. When a young woman mistakes her boyfriend's distance as an impending breakup, he surprises her with a romantic gesture that leaves her sure of everything. After three days of watching his girlfriend give him the silent treatment, a young man decides that the quickest path to forgiveness is through good, old-fashioned makeup sex.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Maddy O’Reilly, a curvy young hotty that has become one of this year’s star sensations to many, was up first as the girlfriend of party hating Xander Corvus, the gal slipping him a message as a chatty Jacky character dominated his time. He then met Maddy upstairs in a bathroom where she was all over him, unzipping his pants and smelling his neck before kneeling down to slob his knob. Xander’s manhood came alive in her mouth, expanding to a turgid boner in no time as she aggressively worked him over with her mouth and hand to gland friction, even her continued eye contact helping make it work. She then bent over and he started thrusting into her pussy, the gal wearing no panties under her light blue dress as she pushed back to meet his thrusts. They continued with the oral and vaginal positions, Xander gobbling her gash in a brief bout of 69. Her juicy ass rippled delightfully well as he tore into her too, nothing rough to upset a significant other watching with you but enough chemistry and heat to work for both kinds of viewers of these scenes. He did munch her hairy crotch toward the end of the scene, the man dousing her boobs with his semen before an amusing ending closed it up.
Scene Two: Jenna J. Ross, a pouty young lady with a lean hard body, was up next holding a grudge against Seth Gamble, refusing to talk to him all week over a silly issue she couldn’t even remember. He eventually tossed a pillow on her head and she freaked out, the two fighting in bed until they had makeup sex. She was already topless and sporting erect nipples, his own erection noticeable through his briefs as they kissed and caressed. She then blew him enthusiastically with fair eye contact, the gal mounting his pecker to vaginally ride it in a few positions of modestly active sex, the guy beating off his load of sperm onto her ass in a short scene that left me wanting a lot more than it had to give (and she has done some solid work over the years).
Scene Three: Jodi Taylor, another perky lady with an all natural body and a curvy ass, was up next with Logan Pierce, the man unwilling to share with her what was bothering him. His silent treatment continued until she forced the issue, the gal surprised with a completely out of left field response. I admit it was a hokey situation and while it might have come from the heart, it was very forced, the gal responding by grinding her clothed hips into his as her g-string rode deep inside her ass crack. Their attire removed slowly as they kissed and pawed each other with a degree of chemistry. Once the sex began in earnest things opened up better, his kisses leading to her blowing him and some active riding positions in her slick slit. Fans of pubic hair will like that she had some and she looked the part just fine, the overall presentation such that men dating a woman wanting him to pop the question might want to steer clear of anytime soon. He did most of the work during the penetrative portion of the tryst, a crotch pop of seed milked to land on her crotch.
Scene Four: Chanel Preston, the dragon draining delight featured on the front cover, was up last with Ryan Driller, the man seen holding her in a familiar pose (there are some standard poses for covers in genre items like this). The harried couple was in that point of their relationship where their financial successes take their toll on their love life, Ryan having planned a big surprise for her and prepared to schedule time in the future before things get out of hand between them. She saw his stash of goodies laid out and climbed into his lap on a chair, only a pair of panties between him and heaven as the mostly naked hotty spent a lot of time kissing him, their hands roaming all over each other in seductive fashion. Chanel blew him with that kind of experienced hummer few ever learn to provide, the couple ending up in bed once he reciprocated so they could actively fuck vaginally. I always prefer to see her with a higher level meat puppet but she made it work and Ryan has that look that many of both sexes apparently enjoys given his porn resume, so I watched as the mechanics of the tryst worked out and her playful nature finished him off as his semen was left on her chest, nothing done with the sperm though the wrap up was cute.
Summary: Love Is In The Air by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations was a decent volume of the series, the chemistry between the performers okay, the replay value noticed, and the strokability on par with previous volumes in the series to merit a rating of Recommended for a general audience. While each of the ladies looked good and the men they were with treated them well enough, some of the spark I have grown used to seeing Jacky’s works wasn’t always there but it was still a good title. In short, Love Is In The Air was the latest in the “Tales From The Heart” line that is designed for couples and those who are romantic at heart, some of the vignettes working better than others for me though it was definitely the kind of porno I would share with a significant other so check it out.
