Cast: Bailey “Dahlia Sky” Blue, Chad White, Sara Luvv, Xander Corvus, Ashlyn Molloy, Logan Pierce, Presley Hart, Ryan McLane
Length: 133:24 minutes
Date of Production: 2014
Extras: The best extra was the 19:56 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, the footage comprised of a series of post sex interviews by Jacky with the cast. There was then a sex act menu, a photogallery, some trailers, spam and company information. Each of the interviews was different but allowed the cast and director put their scene in context as well as allow them to expound on various topics so don’t miss it.
Audio/Video Quality: Restraint was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jacky St. James for Digital Sin under her interesting Tales from the Edge line. The solid lighting kept the flesh tones looking exceptional and the resolution of the scenes working best, few compression artifacts observed when watching the movie on the big screen television. The Director of Photography was Eddie Powell this time, the man providing the needed visual elements to make the production work best with the man and Paul Woodcrest working the cameras. It was clear that a lot of work went into the movie and it looked really good, the editing by Gabrielle Anex and lighting helping a bunch to minimize visual issues. There was a company watermark in the lower right corner of the screen but it was very light and unobtrusive so few should complain. The aural components were well done too, the quality of the stereo English presentation combining clear vocals, appropriate ambient sounds, and a mixture of well handled musical pieces to work really well.
Body of Review: Jacky St. James is an award winning director that continues to evolve with her work at New Sensations. One of her best series is called “Tales From The Edge”, the vignettes presented in the series picking up a topic to allow a title four scenes to explore the particular idea from differing angles. Her latest foray into the erotic deals with couples experimenting with BDSM, going beyond the blindfolds from the last title I reviewed into something more involved. The title in question is called Restraint, a set of four scenes starring ladies such as Bailey Blue, Sara Luvv, Presley Hart, and Ashlyn Molloy who discover the sexual thrill of using restraints in the bedroom as a means of trying something new. In an age when BDSM-lite books like the 50 Shades series are so popular, this should appeal to likeminded people wanting to explore new things but not go full throttle into the kink, the idea of testing the waters appealing to many folks more than jumping in headfirst in a way that rarely appeals to most people.
The back cover described the movie like this: “Hoping to invigorate their predictable sex life, married couple, Logan and Ashlyn, dabble in beginner BDSM sex with the help of a tie and pair of handcuffs. Xander and Sara's sweet suburban lifestyle mask their real relationship of dominance and submission. Passions ignite when Presley asks her husband to blindfold her the night of their anniversary. A couple with a secret obsession for BDSM sex indulge in a night of full sensory deprivation.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Bailey “Dahlia Sky” Blue, a pretty blond with sexy eyes, was up first with Chad White, the two kissing on the bed before he proposed doing something “a little different” with her. The couple kissed and he tied her hands together while slowly savoring her nipples, using his tie to blindfold her before gobbling her gash. Bailey responded to his oral ministrations by moaning a lot, the gal provided access to his penis so she could slob his knob. The teasing blowjob included some hand to gland friction and shaft licking, Bailey concentrating most of her sucking on his head and giving him some licks on the tip. Chad then started vaginally drilling her, Bailey giving more head before switching to a doggy position that enhanced the look of her perky ass, some missionary ending the tryst when she milked his balls dry of semen to launch all over her torso. The company website described the scene like this: “A couple with a secret obsession for BDSM sex indulge in a night of full sensory deprivation.”
Scene Two: Sara Luvv, the curvy hotty featured on the front cover, was up next as an aficionado of role playing, her husband Xander Corvus liking to be in charge. The opening montage included short clips of BDSM activity until he grabbed her phone and turned it off before tossing her on the bed to turn her on. He paddled her ripe rump before fingering her dripping wet cookie at length, Sara pinned down so she could only go with the flow rather than have any say in the matter. Xander then took his turgid rod and teased her with it, slipping it into her pussy for some quick fun before tying her to the bed as shown on the cover. He diddled her pussy some more and pounded her hard with his boner, Sara freed to facilitate her going down on his aggressively until mounting him for more penetrative fun. This soon drained his dragon of sperm, his manly fluids left on her ass cheek as they cuddled in a romantic fashion. The company website described the scene like this: “Xander and Sara's sweet suburban lifestyle mask their real relationship of dominance and submission.”
Scene Three: Ashlyn Molloy, a curvy redhead with a lean body, was up next with husband Logan Pierce, the two finding some BDSM practices just what they needed to get out of their rut. She blindfolded him as she gingerly kissed him all over, his throbbing erection soon addressed orally as she teasingly blew him. This was just a prolonged false start though, the couple soon clothed and exchanging handcuffs as he fixed them to her wrists with her head down and ass in the air, her hands behind her back on the desk so that he was in control of her. He lifted her skirt and pulled her panties down to tease her biscuit orally, his tongue soon working the folds of her labia as she purred in appreciation. That led to him tapping her pussy in a modified doggy, slapping her juicy ass before she gave him a short but messy hummer. He then dove back inside her and soon freed her of her restraints so she could more actively ride his cock, her pussy sliding rapidly on his pole as she rubbed herself silly to get off. The cuffs on her ankles kept her relatively immobile from there, Logan hammering her in missionary before letting loose his juice all over her from head to toe, the bulk of his fluids left on her crotch. The company website described the scene like this: “Hoping to invigorate their predictable sex life, married couple, Logan and Ashlyn, dabble in beginner BDSM sex with the help of a tie and pair of handcuffs.”
Scene Four: Presley Hart, an exceptionally cute young lady with a body built for speed over comfort, was up last with Ryan McLane, the couple celebrating their third year of marital bliss with a blindfold. Her revealing animal print top and satin black pants helped accentuate her all natural figure, the visual impairment device forcing her to focus on all the other sensations involved in making love. He licked and kissed her before his hand fell to her crotch to rub one out, some attention given her yummy ass and perky nipples. Ryan even kissed her feet though that was not a major part of the foreplay, Presley allowed some room to explore him orally while remaining blindfolded as she gave him a teasing hummer. As time marched on, Presley got more into the oral and became increasingly active and enthusiastic, the gal soon rubbing herself as Ryan porked her precious pussy on the brown leather couch. The wealth of active riding positions never let up from there, Ryan unleashing his seed when he nutted on her ass. The company website described the scene like this: “Passions ignite when Presley asks her husband to blindfold her the night of their anniversary.”
Summary: Restraint by director Jacky St. James for Digital Sin was the latest in the “Tales from the Edge” line, the vignettes providing just enough story material to present the erotic sexual encounters in a meaningful manner each time. For me, the movie earned a healthy rating of Recommended, the performances by Bailey Blue, Sara Luvv, Presley Hart, and Ashlyn Molloy strokable with good replay value. In short, I found Restraint a slightly more provocative volume of the “Tales from the Edge” line, the stories not quite pushing the theme far enough for my tastes but certainly offering a good starting point for couples wanting to spice things up with some experimentation so give it a look and find out why I enjoyed it so much, the casting and technical values sure to please.
