Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. There was some grain at times but the picture looked designed to imitate film, rather than videotape, which often causes difficulties in the dvd transfer. In all, it looked pretty good but there were also some moiré and motion artifacts along with faded colors at times. The audio provided a choice of either Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2.0 English. Both sounded good but the 2.0 track sounded slightly off (hollow) at times. The vocals and music were nicely mixed.

Body of Review: Wicked is the high-end producer of feature porn in the USA. If you're looking for plotted porn with babes, high-end production values, and great extras, there's a very short list with Wicked on top. In their latest release, Skin Deep, Stormy plays a gal who goes from administrative assistant to fashion model in the blink of an eye (with Voodoo playing a very funny photographer). I find her extremely attractive so that concept isn't too far from possible. In any case, she falls for the photographer and finds out he's a sleaze that uses women and then dumps them. She finds true love, or at momentary lust, in a man that was "under her nose" for quite a while. Okay, it was a minimal story which seemed designed more to test Stormy as a contract performer than anything else but it was well shot and I can't fault for mixing it up a bit. Not all of their movies are designed to be blockbusters like Hercules. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast, noting that all the scenes had some warmth, with a bit of chemistry, and none appeared to be filler (on the first couple of views at least):

Scene One: Nicole, the blonde with a curvy body and pretty face, and Voodoo, her real-life partner, had a scene on a bed together. Some oral and straight with a pounding anal made this a warm scene.

Scene Two: Faith, a brunette wearing a hot little fetish outfit, and Steve, had a scene outside of a bank vault after a photoshoot. I loved her tiny, erect nipples as he worked them over and the scene, while not the best in the movie, was fun to watch.

Scene Three: Stormy, the babe from the front dvd cover, and Voodoo got busy on a bed. The scene was oral and straight only until Nicole joined them. They then pulled out a strap-on dildo and went wild with one another (in a human-sandwich sort of way). Whew!

Scene Four: Stormy, April, and Nikita had a lesbian scene on a couch. It started off with lots of licking and fingering then progressed to toys. The action even included a technical DP on Nikita. I like all of the performers here and their scene was warm.

Scene Five: April, apparently needing more than what the women could provide, gave Mason a hummer in a stairwell. It was at once energetic and hot although I'd have liked to see her get a hot beef injection too.

Scene Six: Stormy, still in fine form, did Trevor in a small apt. The sex was oral and straight only but well done, if too short a scene for my taste.

Summary: I liked this one for what it was, a simple story with few complications, a bevy of beauties, and decent production values. I'm going to list this as a Recommended movie although fans of Stormy, which I'm quickly becoming, will consider it a must-have. The acting was a trifle weak, or, as in Voodoo's case, intentionally funny (and out of place), but the sex was warm enough that fans should be happy. If you are looking for circus act sex however, you've come to the wrong place and will want to look for something from Red Light District or Evil Angel.
