As with most of the DVDs from Erotica X, this one features four unrelated videos.

Unfortunately, only one of the scenes here is particuarly good, though it really is very good. We're talking about the third scene, with Jaslene Jade and James Deen. The sex is passionate and convincing, and there is real chemistry between them. Deen really seems to get off on helping his partner get off, and Jaslene definitely does get off, having at least four orgasms.

The other scenes are mediocre, though not bad. The sex in all of these scenes feels a bit routine—not planned or performed, but just lacking in genuine passion. And, as in Pure Desire 1, the introductory stories are disappointing. In the first, for example, Mia Malkova wanders around her house in white lingerie and very high red heels, posing and looking at the camera, then strips and makes her way, naked, out to a heliport on the roof. The third scene, as good as it is in other respects, is about as bad in this one. The second is a bit better—Chloe Foster does a striptease for her lover, Logan Pierce—but of course that has its own gender issues. And the fourth, though it starts out promising—Tyler Nixon gives Dillion Harper a massage—she overacts this part of the scene. We're sure it feels good, but it can't possibly feel that good that fast.

As with the other early DVDs from Erotica X, then, there is promise here. Even the scenes we've complained about have their moments, and the camera work, though inconsistent, can be very, very good. Still, to see why it's worth getting excited about Mason's work for Erotica X, one has to look at some of the later DVDs, reviews of which are on the way.

Scene 1: Lost In the Clouds (Mia Malkova and Danny Mountain, ♀♂)


Time: 28:35

Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ✓, Passion ✓, Balance

The beginning of this video features Malkova in white lingerie and very high red heels, wandering around the house and posing, then stripping and walking outside onto the roof. She eventually finds her way back inside, where she meets her lover. We doubt the entire sequence will have much appeal for female viewers or, to be honest, male ones. So we tried to ignore that part and start the review at 5:00 or so.

Unfortunately, however, the sex that follows isn't terribly passionate, either. It doesn't feel planned or performed, and there are moments of spontaneity, but overall there is not much feeling of connection between them, at least none that makes it off the screen.

The camera work is about as usual for these: very, very good, but not great.

Scene 2: An Intimate Embrace (Chloe Foster and Logan Pierce, ♀♂)


Time: 20:26

Female Orgasm: Yes, Cumshot: Stomach

He is in the living room, in dress clothes, drinking a glass of whiskey, and she appears in lingerie and heels. She walks over by a fireplace and strips, taking off her panties, then her bra. She squeezes her tits, then walks over to him and kisses him as he stands to meet her.

There isn't much to that story, though the striptease she does for him is sexy. But it doesn't provide much context for the sex, and we missed that. The sex is itself nowhere near as natural or convincing, either, as it usually is in Erotica X videos, and the "CMNF" aspect felt is a bit routine. They do both seem to enjoy themselves, however.

The camera work is pretty good, but not as good as with many of these videos. Some of the shots as she sucks him are close to "POV", which we find problematic, if not balanced by shots from her point of view. We lose him a bit in the usual sorts of places, as well, though not too badly.

Scene 3: Poolside Allure (Jaslene Jade and James Deen, ♀♂)


Time: 22:59

Female Orgasm: Multiple, Cumshot: Stomach

Pleasure ♀, Passion ♀, Balance

She is walking around in a black swimsuit, or something of the sort, kind of posing. We then see him on the other side of a pool, watching her. He walks over to her and kisses her, and they make their way to an outdoor bed.

The initial sequence seems a bit gratuitous, and it did nothing for us. But it only lasts about two and a half minutes, and you can always skip over it. And once they start having sex, things improve a great deal. There is excellent chemistry between them, and the sex is passionate and convincing. As usual, Deen seems to care quite a lot about his partner's pleasure, and he really seems to enjoy helping Jaslene cum, which she does at least four times.

The camera work is very good, a bit better than is usual for these videos.

Scene 4: A Touch of Romance (Dillion Harper and Tyler Nixon, ♀♂)


Time: 28:08

Cumshot: Stomach

She is on the balcony in just a towel, and he is below, in shorts, calling her down for a massage. She overacts a bit during this part. We're sure it feels good, but it can't possibly feel that good that fast.

There is a decent but not great connection between them, and the sex feels a bit routine. She seems to enjoy herself, but never seems terribly aroused.

The camera work is pretty good. She is more the focus at times, but not overall.
