Extras: The only extras were trailers as well as an unrelated bonus scene to Sexually Explicit 2 between Holly Michaels and Johnny Castle as described below lasting 41:26 minutes as described below.
Audio/Video Quality: Sexually Explicit 5 was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director B. Skow for Girlfriends Films. Skow and Mike Towers handled the camera work, the editing by Tony Peaches looking good, some attempt to include artistic angles and framing noticed. Each of the four vignettes looked different but the visuals were impressive nonetheless, the framing and editing of the sexual trysts enhanced the look of the ladies nicely. There was no continuous company watermark on the screen for those who care and the accurate flesh tones looked good. The aural components of the movie varied a bit more this time with the music appropriate to each vignette but credited to “Bina”. The rare vocals were easily heard and ambient sounds filled out this aspect of the production to make it sound decent.
Body of Review: B. Skow and his distribution deal with Girlfriends Films have seen the man trying all sorts of new things he wasn’t allowed to do when under contract, a few of them quite disturbing. His latest release called Sexually Explicit 5, the movie a set of four gonzo vignettes centering on sexual fantasies of a female cast including August Ames, Alli Rae, Ariana Marie, and Isabella De Santos. The back cover said it like this: “Sexually Explicit 5 takes director B. Skow's high end award winning tease and sex to a new place. Skow takes four of the most popular girls in porn and showcases them with two different styles of tease, revealing and entertaining interviews, and bright and clear hardcore fucking. Watch August Ames, Isabella De Santos, Ariana Marie, and Alli Rae in a movie that was created and shot for true fans of these incredibly talented stars.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Alli Rae, a fetching little blond who currently sports a few dozen or so scenes listed on the IAFD, was up first to showcase the new format, her wide eyed look of innocence given a lengthy tease and solo masturbation sequence before an interview with the director allowed the viewer to get to know her better. The audio was on the low side, her bubbly personality shining as she filled the world in on various details of her fledgling career. At 20 years old, she was built for speed over comfort, Skow’s probative questions showing her to be a pleaser still new to the game before she engaged in a more sexually charged tease that led to a reboot where she had sex with Xander Corvus. The resolution of the camera was strong enough to show the fine hairs on her ass, each fold of her labia and the sweat pouring down her in the sauna, the gal cleaned up to end up on the small bed where Xander greeted her nicely. He bit her nipples and slapped her all natural tits, kissing her hard before gobbling her gash aggressively, her bald beaver glistening with juices as he diddled her also. While she was a little over the top in terms of her moans and aural comments, they seemed to be a decent couple here, Xander boning her vaginally before they moved into a 69 so she could slob his knob and nuzzle his nuts, the gal actively riding him in the cowgirl variations more than the other myriad of positions enjoyed, the gal draining his dragon of sperm as he spewed all over her face and open mouth as she continued her solid eye contact with him, Xander whispering “that a girl” to her as she smiled.
Scene Two: Ariana Marie, a sultry little Texan (from Dallas), was up next as she gave her initial tease in the doorway overlooking a modest home pool, a great deal of time spent on her eyes before moving forward to showcase her itty bitty self. There was a fading bruise on her ass as her thong nestled deep inside her crack, the gal moving around the house before having a solo masturbation sequence on the large white couch, the music again dominating over her limited moans. Ariana had a similar newcomer’s nervous energy as Skow interviewed her outside while she stood in her black bikini undies, her thoughtful answers showing his offbeat questions kept her on her toes. She sported a few wisps of pubic hair as her shaven snatch started growing back, the interviewed followed by round two of the tease in a tall room with wooden floor that looked like it could be a racquetball court, a light sheen of sweat observed on her as she stripped off her minimal attire to caress herself a bit mechanically. She then ended up on the white couch where scrawny newcomer male Brad Knight, a guy from Virginia I believe, started pawing her as if directed to from her feet to her boobs, some whispered communication egging him onward to give her a limited amount of head before she blew him like a seasoned talent. I liked the camera angle showing her ass in the air as she focused mainly on the head of his turgid pecker, his modest boner looking almost porn sized in her intuitive hands when she gave him some hand to gland friction. While she was a passive vaginal rider most of the scene, she did start gyrating her hips and showing signs of energy outside of her hummer once warmed up but there was no discernible chemistry in the scene, Ariana milking his balls dry in the ending blowjob to get her mug plastered.
Scene Three: August Ames, the super sexy Canadian featured on the front cover, was up next on the second disc as she followed the formula, her white crop top pushed tightly against her enhanced bosoms and her DSL’s as puffy as ever. In her opening tease, she wore some faded cut off shorts that hugged her ample ass as well, her nicely tanned body put on display throughout the house in various degrees of undress. In terms of how many scenes she has performed in since starting in porn, she had more than all of the other three ladies put together, her appeal in a variety of areas making her the only female of the cast to qualify for the term used on the back cover about popularity, the gal visibly enjoying her solo masturbation sequence in a slower, more deliberate manner rather than the others. She was naked in bed for the interview, Skow playing with the 20 year old as though both were in on the joke. The interview led to the second tease where she wore a tiny, sparkling blue bikini, her measured moves less polished than I was expecting though the bare room (with gray patterned wallpaper like my grandmother would have liked) didn’t offer many opportunities for her to use the background. The tease then transitioned to August laying on a metallic silver couch naked, Anthony Rosano coming over to her for an enthusiastic blowjob and titty fuck as she pumped the chump hard with her hand. She then actively rode his raging erection in a multitude of vaginal positions, Anthony giving her a few licks here and there on her pussy and ass but otherwise fixated on tapping the beauty in every conceivable manner as she expressed her appreciation as noisily as she could. Given the relative size of his rod compared to much larger guys she’s worked with, that did make it seemed a bit fake but I have to give the excellent feature actor credit in that he let loose the juice all over her torso and face by the time they were finished, hats off to him and her for the energetic pounding.
Scene Four: Isabella De Santos, a perky little Latina from Columbia with a resulting allure reserved for tiny cuties, was up last in a tease that took place outside in front of an orange tree, her deep tan and all natural body offering a girlish appeal favored by some. She continued inside the house by masturbating her roast beef labia, fingering herself as she kept great eye contact with the camera though no vocals were permitted in the music dominated sequence until near the end when they sounded dubbed. She remained on the pink lounger in the well lit bedroom as Skow began his barrage of questions by asking her to promote a dating site and then a gender bender question that caused her to push back verbally, at least a little bit. Of all the ladies, she had the most pubic hair, the neatly trimmed triangle discussed before he again asked his favored question about “the last time you puked” though her answer was less interesting than August’s. This led to the second tease session, a more risqué endeavor where she turned on the charm in her bikini undies and showed that a 27 year old from Florida had some serious flexibility and moves. I liked the all too short showering portion the most but as expected, she ended up on the bed with Will Powers, his minimal oral on her leading to a variety of vaginal positions and oral, the gal showing some great eye contact and decent riding skills as she impaled herself on his equally modest cock. She throated him almost to the bone near the end of the scene too, Will barking out directives to her in an annoying manner before she used both hands to beat him off to orgasm, switching to one at the last second for balance as she let his nut slide down her hand during the post coital head.
Bonus Scene: Sexually Explicit 2: Holly Michaels, Johnny Castle: Holly Michaels, an increasingly popular babe with dark hair and a smoking hot ass, was then up with Johnny Castle. She was in the garage wearing a loose sweater and skimpy shorts that rode up her precious ass, looking into the car as she fantasized, soon dancing to the music when she turned on the stereo. Her lithe and sexy form looked awesome prancing around the garage as she joyously stripped off her clothing, her ample boobs bouncing and her juicy ass popping up and down as she shook it for all it was worth. As she masturbated inside the car (and technically a bit before that), she imagined a second set of hands helping her get off, her neatly trimmed pubic hair making her look young and her juices glistening while she was fingered, Johnny soon shown in jeans and a t-shirt as she grinded her sweet ass into his lap as her g-string rode deep inside her ass crack. They were all over each other like a couple of horny teenagers too, both giving each other some head before bumping uglies in a multitude of positions, additional oral provided to enhance the experience for both of them. Holly was an active vaginal rider with solid eye contact who knew how to milk a nut, Johnny eventually unleashing his wad of population pudding all over her crotch just as he pulled out of her, Holly loving his taste as she provided the post coital head to drain his dragon of every last drop. (41:26 minutes)
Summary: Sexually Explicit 5 by director B. Skow for Girlfriends Films merited a rating of Recommended or better. The much longer tease sequences and interviews fleshed out the production from earlier volumes to provide each lady with more ability to express herself, the male mopes becoming less of a factor as a result. I thought using another bonus scene from volume two was a little weak, each disc having the same extra, but at least it was different from the last two volumes of the series that shared the same scene. Otherwise, August Ames stood out for me here by a wide margin, none of the others coming close to the advertised “most popular girls in porn” yet certainly having some appeal from Alli’s pretty blue eyes to Ariana’s sultry looks, or Isabella’s overall appeal. In short, Sexually Explicit 5 set out to offer something surpassing Skow’s usual rules of sexual engagements, the upgrades appreciated almost to an even higher rating so give this one a look to see how Skow’s re-tinkering with his previous formula yielded some favorable results.
