Audio/Video Quality: Flesh was presented in a crisp anamorphic widescreen offering as shot by director Jakodema for Digital Playground. Sir Richard Manwin III and Billy Visual were credited with working cameras, and a large group of others providing their own technical assistance such as Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton handling Art Direction. There was a lot of texture and variation of lighting, like a “real” series instead of a porno with warehouse lighting, making it visually more appealing though some of the trysts could have used more lighting (my preference) and other areas could have stood a second take due to camera positioning. The aural qualities by Seth Cardigan was modest but presented in 2.0 stereo the bit rate of 192 Kbps not hurting the ability to hear the vocals, some pretty good music included though it wasn’t credited to anyone.


Body of Review: Digital Playground has long stood out as one of the biggest feature porn producers in the industry, popular director Jakodema coming out with a web series recently called Flesh, now released on a double disc set. The show had eight episodes of varying lengths and continued the company’s series format, the starlets including Eva Lovia, Abella Danger, AJ Applegate (among others). The story elements centered on an attractive young lady (company contract star Eva Lovia) who falls under the sexually abusive spell of a rich older man in what appears to be the latest tribute to a trilogy of BDSM books by a porn producer. The fetish aspects were pretty light here, just right for couples wanting the tiniest of peeks but none of the dirty details involved in power exchanges and kink. With supporting roles for Abella Danger, AJ Applegate, and other attractive women, it was worth a look but mainly for those that are just getting started in porn or the whole 50 shades stuff.

The back cover described the movie like this: “By day she's a working professional, and by night she's Number 4. Get entranced in the morphed world of DP contract star, Eva Lovia, as she conforms into nymph-like submission, and discovers new pleasures in the realm of sadism and masochism with the firm's business partner. A kinky 8 episode series, with 9 hardcore sex scenes, and a horny cast starring Abigail Mac, Abella Danger, Maddy O'Reilly, Courtney Taylor and AJ Applegate!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:



Scene One: The Firm: The first episode was called “The Firm” which established Eva being hired with some interpersonal dynamics taking place over her selection by the law partners. That taken care of, the episode dove head first into two separate sex scenes, the first showing hotty Abella Danger, a totally cute newcomer with a smoking hot ass, jump all over Tony Martinez in bed for no apparent reason, her green g-string riding up her delicious ass cheeks as she went in for the kiss, her fine legs enhancing the view of her glorious ass as she explained how much better sex was than video games. She slobbed his modest knob with ease, throating him to the bone almost immediately and nuzzling his nuts before some hand to gland combat got his turgid pecker raging hard. Rather than gobble her gash, he started pounding into her dripping pussy in doggy, her dirty talk enhancing the limited action before he flipped her over to continue. They eventually moved back to doggy and she milked his balls dry of semen for a facial. Then, grumpy partner Abigail Mac, another small gal with a pretty face, kicked everyone out of the mail room except intern Jesse Jones, fussing at him while laying out the ground rules as she sat on a black leather couch with her legs spread to reveal a lack of panties. He gobbled her gash as ordered and fingered her before she reciprocated with a hand assisted hummer that showed her barely take the head of his cock in her mouth as she knelt in front of him, the scene airing on 4/30/2015 for those who care. She then actively rode him vaginally in cowgirl variations and spooning before she drained his dragon of sperm with a handjob and hummer combined, her excellent eye contact helping him nut in her mouth before a confrontation took place with Eva.



Scene Two: Stanley: Eva Lovia, the latest company contract performer who was best known prior as a fetish and lesbian scene expert, was then up as the newly hired IT technician who was asked out by senior partner Keiran Lee, the far older man insisting on dinner in the scene airing on 5/4/2015. She was still in the same tight black skirt and loose blouse though the story elements conflicted with the stated timeline, Keiran dominating her as they started what would become the main relationship of the movie. She did as instructed to establish her loyalty so they left the restaurant and were soon in a contemporary bathroom, Keiran removing their attire slowly and tying her up in red rope as on the stylish front cover. She knelt with her legs spread to show her neatly trimmed snatch, sucking his dick in messy fashion as her saliva flew all over before some modestly active vaginal riding positions took place. The oral continued on an intermittent basis until he beat off all over her tongue, Eva swallowing some of his manly fluids without question though additional clips of them engaged in coital activities were shown until the credits rolled.



Scene Three: My World: Kaylani Lei, a curvy Asian cutie, was up next with Bill Bailey at a sex club in a scene airing on 5/11/2015. Eva and Keiran established what would become the basis for their “rules” of their relationship in the nice home before a shopping montage and people warning her, the sex club including a lot of extras in various states of dress (or arousal). The focal point of the scene was Kaylani and Bill though, the couple lightly caressing nearby on a couch, her pierced nipples and red rope outfit not covering anything as he tossed her around for the pleasure of the others watching, the guy rubbing her neatly trimmed patch of pubes and slapping her biscuit before feeding her a sample of the taste. She blew him and they vaginally fucked in a few positions, her active riding modest except in a few positions until he unleashed his seed in her open mouth.



Scene Four: Japanese Bondage: AJ Applegate, a beautiful blond with amazing blue eyes and a great ass, was up next with Derrick Pierce in a scene airing originally on 5/16/2015. The coule started off by making out in a secluded stairwell, Derrick peeling off her blouse and his vest as they kissed. Her bra came next so he could savor her itty bitty (but all natural) titties, her blue skirt hiked up so he could spank her juicy ass and rub her crotch through her lacy white panties. He then turned her around abruptly to bite and spank her ass, teasing the fabric out of her ass crack to rim her and otherwise orally pleasure the gal. They continued with her blowing him and the two moving to a couch for vaginal fucking, her bald beaver driving him wild with excitement as they bumped uglies. Her eye contact with him was solid and Eva walked in as instructed, the lead masturbating as she listened into the tryst which soon ended with AJ on her knees sucking the fluids right out of him for a facial.



Scene Five: The Breaking Point: Dana DeArmond, a thin brunette whose career in porn has included hundreds and hundreds of hardcore scenes, was up next with Tommy Gunn in a scene airing on 5/23/2015. They went to his office and kissed as they pawed each other, Dana’s tight skirt and light blue blouse contrasted starkly with Tommy’s suit, the man bending her over the desk to eat her ass and snatch. He spanked her a little and she spread her leg to make it easier for him to eat her pussy, Dana reciprocating by gingerly fishing his raging boner out of his pants to suck it actively. That she made a connection with him via eye contact and whispered comments was interesting, the passive fucking less so as they screwed on the desk, her best positions while on top of him helping at least make it worth a look. It ended when the missionary led to him plastering her face with spew, Dana giving some post coital head until the ending credits rolled.



Scene Six: The Ring: Scene six started off with various feature elements used to catch up the story, the pacing not exactly stellar but at least allowing the uncredited writer more latitude before Dana DeArmond was sitting in the lap of the firm’s latest client played by Stephen St. Croix in the scene that aired on 5/30/2015. He was scruffy but forward, removing her bikini undies after her dress so he could go down on her and use her as he saw fit. She throated him with ease and he kept a continual stream of whispered dirty talk to keep her interested, the gal putting on an exaggerated act about how his treatment was too rough for her. The oral led to vaginal and she submitted to his demands until he exploded all over her crotch with a massive load of goo, leaning over her carefully to kiss her while avoiding his genetic juice at the same time.



Scene Seven: Trouble in Paradise: Eva Lovia, firmly established as the slave of Keiran Lee, then blew him in the lower cabin of the boat they were on, Maddy O’Reilly and Derrick Pierce soon joining them in the scene airing 6/6/2015. It looked like Eva tossed Keiran’s salad as Maddy’s striped dress was pulled off and her nipples tweaked, the curvy new cutie added to the mix in her bright pink demi cup bra and panties. Eva was already fucking when Maddy was just started to blow Derrick, the couples almost merging on the small tan couch as both couples went at it side by side, the action perhaps the best of the entire series though it was hampered by the closed quarters. The facials ended it as the ladies sucked the men clean.



Scene Eight: Wake Up: Courtney Taylor, a curvy blond bombshell with DSL’s, was up last in the series finale, as she climbed into bed with Keiran Lee, the man whispering to her as she wrapped her lips around his cock to blow him. The scene just aired on 6/13/2015 and her oral led to them active vaginally riding, Keiran fingering her ass on the black bed as his cock was in her to the hilt, more oral leading to the ending facial plastering her face as he called her his “fucking whore”, the ending feature elements extremely unsatisfying and rushed.


There were spelling errors...

Summary: Flesh by director Jakodema for Digital Playground was fun enough that it merited a rating of Rent It, the limited acting abilities combined with the writing to limit replay value even after you consider this was a thinly veiled copy of “50 Shades...” The double disc collection of 8 episodes had some good moments but Eva Lovia really did not convey the needed dynamic all that well and the sex was very repetitive in each scene despite some dabbling with BDSM kink. In short, Flesh was not terrible at all, just limited in scope so the strokability and replay value should’ve been better, the ending a big let down from what was expected.
