Extras: The extras included a 36:04 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the cast and Jacky interacted, a “pick your pleasure” menu, a photogallery, trailers, spam, and some company information. The lengthy BTS by Jacky herself was comprised solely of cast interviews, allowing the participants to bandy about ideas related to the production or their careers.
Audio/Video Quality: The Exes and Ohhhs was presented in a crisp, anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations. Using the talents of renowned Eddie Powell on camera and editor Gabrielle Anex, 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 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 one of the most talented female directors in porn, her work at New Sensations, garnering a great deal of praise in recent years. Her latest release in the “Tales From The Heart” series in for review is called The Exes and Ohhhs, a set of four scenes showing former couples in vignettes portraying them getting back together sexually. With ladies like Aria Alexander, Casey Calvert, Jade Nile, and Alli Rae working with guys like Tyler Nixon and Ritchie Calhoun, there was some potential for a lot of fun here, the playful trysts the kind that a lot of people will appreciate.
The back cover said this about the movie: “While helping friends plan a wedding, Jade and Michael's lingering feelings ignite a passionate conversation about what went wrong in their relationship. Desperately in love with her ex-boyfriend Ryan, Aria concocts a variety of scenarios to lure him over to her apartment. Tyler's true feelings for his ex-girlfriend Alli surface after a heated argument about her new boyfriend. Richie fights to save his relationship with is ex-girlfriend Casey when she suggests they sell the home they own together.” 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 cute little blond with pretty eyes, was up first arguing with her ex, Tyler Night, over the panties she was going to wear on a date with another guy. The resulting set up was all too familiar and believably handled, the background music romantic and the couple soon jumping each other on the white couch. Her top came down so he could suck her nipples, her ample boobs fondled, and her mouth kissed before their hands roamed freely on each other. He gobbled her gash and diddled her bald beaver, the perfect pussy savored as it should be while she reclined on her back and spread her legs wide as they maintained eye contact. She then reciprocated, freeing his turgid pecker from the confines of his pants as she wrapped her lips around his shaft, throating him almost to the bone and giving some hand to gland friction before she mounted him vaginally for some active riding positions. Her alabaster skin tone contrasted with his tan and they seemed connected on multiple levels, the spooning position milking his balls dry of semen as he unleashed his manly fluids on her ass cheek which led to cuddling until arguing again in humorous fashion.
Scene Two: Jade Nile, a curvy babe with a splendid ass, was up next with Michael Vegas, the standard voice over of the two helping flesh out their not so random encounter while helping a friend’s wedding. They opened up to one another, again establishing how important communication is to healthy relationships over fads, the two ending up on a brown couch tearing off their clothing before he devoured her hairy snatch, the easy to shoot reclining position with legs spread again favored to show it all (and show it well). He worked her crotch as she maintained solid eye contact, the premise not as fleshed out as the last one but again done very believably, Michael rimming her before she inhaled his modest member. Her hand assisted hummer and nut nuzzling was every bit as enthusiastic as the other scenes and their energy levels were certainly high, Jade rubbing herself as she slobbed his knob aggressively until he went back down on her and then fucked her vaginally. I really liked the way her juicy ass cheeks rippled as she bounced on him in the cowgirl variations, even her second round of missionary showing her pushing to meet the thrusts of his raging boner, the man pouring sweat as she drained his dragon of sperm to land on her pubic hair.
Scene Three: Casey Calvert, one of the most adorable young ladies in porn, was up next with Ritchie Calhoun as the two portrayed a couple still living together to share expenses. The relationship was shown to be in slow burn mode, showing the two as amicable but not currently going at it. She came in after a bad day at work to find his day was the polar opposite, their days of fighting over money done with as he pitched his feelings for her during a foot rub. They kissed and she climbed into his lap, her white shirt flying off with bra to follow on the gray couch, Ritchie all over her as she kissed him back. The messy kissing as her mane of hair flew all around them was realistic enough and the set up about fighting over money common enough, her tight gray pants peeled off with her white lace panties for him to go down on her in the usual position, her eye contact superior and a connection developed as though they were really a couple. While he was scruffy with a lot of stubble, she was clean down there, her pucker teased a little as Ritchie pleasured Casey for some time. This led to a standing doggy until she eased to the couch, her delicious ass poised up in the air as her head went down, Casey blowing him between some positions before he exploded all over her crotch with a healthy dose of manly fluids.
Scene Four: Aria Alexander, the beautiful brunette newcomer from the front cover, was up last with Ryan McLane, the opening voice over explaining how they drifted apart before she clearly established her desire to rekindle their romance. She would keep inventing reasons for him to come rescue her, Aria calling him as he left her house on yet another mission of mercy. She was soaking in the bathtub and gave him a show of her goodies, her fine body freshly shaven and ready to rumble while he looked like a day laborer halfway through the day, the kisses leading them to a bed. Her towel dropped and their kisses continued, Ryan kissing the nape of her neck and working his way down to her tits and crotch before she blew him aggressively. She gave good eye contact and seemed to relish pleasuring him with her mouth and hand, her saliva serving as lubricant as they began to fuck, Aria the loudest of the ladies in the show. While some of it seemed pornish as a result, there was no doubting Aria’s enthusiasm, impaling herself on Ryan’s cock and ending up as an active participant, her body built for speed and using that to stand out from the pack. It ended as Ryan oozed his spew on her crotch, the pair kissing as the voice over resumed to explain a truism of communication.
Summary: The Exes and Ohhhs by director Jacky St. James for New Sensations was a solid set of four scenes showing attractive gals hooking up with guys they had sex with previously as the main theme, the production earning a strong rating of Highly Recommended for the quality of sexual antics and technical aspects. All four ladies were very appealing and paired up with appropriate guys, and the technical aspects were as good as always, courtesy of the talented crew. In summary, The Exes and Ohhhs was the latest in the “Tales From The Heart” line that lacks a bit of the edge some of Jacky’s other series have but had the kind of “fun factor” playfulness that makes so many of her titles work that fans will be very happy with the result.
