Audio/Video Quality: The Swing Life was presented in a crisp, anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations. Using the talents of Paul Woodcrest and Eddie Powell 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 female director at New Sensations, the young lady wisely getting other company directors to provide technical excellence in her scenes. Her latest release in the “Tales From The Edge” series in for review is called The Swing Life, a set of four scenes showing couples sharing their bodies with one another in a much more believable manner than previous efforts showing one partner being allowed a free pass. Going into this one, my favorite performer was Cherie DeVille with Jodi Taylor well worth a special mention, the cast fleshed out nicely by Keira Nicole and Britney Amber. I know this came out months ago but it just came in for review, some companies more timely than others.


The back cover said this about the feature: “After Gillian discovers that her best friend, Lindsay, isn’t as uptight as she expected, she reveals a provocative secret. Gillian and her husband, Joe, are swingers and they’re eager to invite Lindsay and her husband, Patrick, into their fold. Aroused by the possibility of an open marriage Lindsay shares this news with Patrick, who eventually agrees to give it a shot. But when he is slow to take the initiative with Gillian, the two girlfriends surprise him with an afternoon of explosive sex. Caroline and Tyler enjoy a very emotionally and physically satisfying marriage, but that doesn’t prevent their insatiable curiosity from creeping in from time to time. Fascinated by the dynamics of the swinger lifestyle, the two set their sights on close friends and swingers, Jenny and Max. But after a failed attempt at seduction, Tyler and Caroline are worried they might not have the game it takes to succeed in the lifestyle. Or do they?” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:



Scene One: My Neighbor’s Wife, Pt 1: Keira Nicole, the curvy blond hotty with pretty eyes from the front cover, was up first with Michael Vegas (the creepy looking guy sitting next to her on the front cover), after the short story elements established the swinging dynamic. The dialog was a little stilted and more sexual tension could have been built up but it was no worse than most fast forward fodder, akin to the days of old when the pizza delivery guy offered more sausage (more or less). She sat on a red velvet lounging chair in the house as he helped peel her attire off, Michael sucking her all natural boobs before gobbling her gash after uncovering the hairy snatch from under her panties. He diddled her too and fingered her, the guy energetic enough for her though she overdid it a little as well. He rimmed her and she reciprocated by taking some time to get his completely flaccid cock as hard as it was going to get, her knob slobbing and hand to gland friction combining with her good eye contact as she throated him with total ease. He reached over to play with her ass as she blew him which then led to several vaginal penetrative positions, the best of which was her on top impaling herself though her ass looked nicer when they were in doggy. While she wasn’t the most active rider outside that first position, she was nice enough eye candy, the screwing draining his dragon of sperm tossed off all over her ass, the gal kissing him before more story elements continued the story.



Scene Two: My Neighbor’s Wife, Pt 2: Jodi Taylor, the redheaded cutie standing up on the front cover, was up next with Chad White, the man she was making silly eyes with on the cover. This was the reciprocal part of the story about two swinging couples, Keira Nicole even participating to a degree by watching her spouse and friend go at it (while Keira masturbated on a nearby chair). The minimalist set up established the idea once again, the ladies showing what swell friends they were before Jodi started making out with Chad. They pawed each other and the primary scene couple broke off to provide the show as Jodi knelt down to blow him in a hand assisted hummer, Chad initially fingering Keira at first but soon focusing his efforts on Jodi. He was already sporting a fairly turgid pecker by the time Jodi whipped him out of his pants, her teasing but shallow blowjob quickly leading to some active vaginal riding positions as she mounted him on his lap. Her yummy ass looked good with her legs wrapped around his, her perfect pucker winking at times though never opened up. She ditched the rest of her clothes and the scene went back and forth between the couple as well as Keira diddling herself, Jodi’s energy levels decent though she kicked back to enjoy Chad’s efforts more than rode him hard most of the time. He ended it by milking his balls dry of semen all over her crotch and lower torso, Keira joining them to provide some post coital clean up head.



Scene Three: Borrowed Wives, Pt 1: Cherie DeVille, a blond bombshell hotty with brilliant eyes and a delicious ass, was up next with Ritchie Calhoun, as part of a second story. As an older pair, they were happy but wanted to explore broader horizons than their spouses alone, swinging offering some additional excitement but the safety of friends as well, the following tryst showing their spouses having a good time as well. All four chatted over drinks and despite some initial hesitation, Cherie joined Ryan in the bathroom. They kissed and felt each other up with a modicum of chemistry, her yellow dress and white panties offering scant resistance to his hand before she let him help her take it off, her curvy figure driving him crazy as he groped her breasts and reach around for her fleshy rump. Her hands kept busy during this time as well, his semi erect chubby brought to life by her hand as she ground her ass into his crotch. Their mutual hand to gland work led to him kneeling as he devoured her juicy slit, the bald beaver dripping juices as she pushed against his face. They fucked with her reclined against the sink top and he went balls deep to coat his raging erection with her juices to suck clean, Cherie passionately working him orally while keeping her eyes on his before they went back to boning. She was loud and proud here as usual, some nut nuzzling leading to active positions where her shaven slit pushed him over the edge before she knelt to milk him of manly fluids that glazed her chest.



Scene Four: Borrowed Wives, Pt 2: Britney Amber, a prolific redhead these days, then finished up the movie in a scene with her friend’s husband, played by Ryan Mclane. They were back at the dining table when Cherie and Ritchie came back smiling, that couple lightly playing on the red couch as Britney and Ryan went to the bedroom to go at each other. They tore off their clothes and he didn’t wait for permission to remove her panties, Britney spreading her legs wide to grant him better access at eating her slick slit, Britney grinding her crotch into his face before she took her turn inhaling his modest cock. He sported wood in no time and she easily took him to the hilt, her hand guiding him into her mouth as she savored his little guy. Most of the initial positions of vaginal sex had her on top so she was an active rider, the gal getting way too loud considering his size when they spooned or engaged in modified missionary, even her eye contact very limited with him. It wasn’t a bad encounter but it wasn’t great either, the previous three all better though this one ended in an ass pop as well, just no anal sex.

Summary: The Swing Life by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations was a set of four scenes showing swinging couples as the main theme, the production earning a fine rating of Recommended for the quality of sexual antics and feature elements. All four ladies were appealing to a degree though my favorite remained Cherie DeVille and Jodi Taylor, Britney and Keira certainly adding some replay value too. In short, The Swing Life was the latest in the “Tales From The Edge” line that some of my readers enjoy as light adult entertainment, the director offering some taboo encounters without going overboard, so check it out.
