The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I've heard good things about this release and Brad Armstong can make a very nice feature so I'm going into this one with pretty high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It's a very well done adult feature that's well deserving of all the praise it's received.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody looking for an adult feature that doesn't feel dumbed down or afraid of sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting an adult feature that's heavy on the sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects show some very nice care. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice a single background noise. The video is just as impressive, and is very nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen. The camera work is smooth, and the presentation shows some very nice attention towards the lighting.
Music: The music is very well done. It has a nice style for the movie, and always rests nicely in the background rather than pushing itself forward and interfering with the action.
Menus: The main menu is fairly simple, and blends the boxcover with a touch of background animation. The chapter menu, as usual, is a bit short on care and just gives a clip of each scene along with a scene number rather than giving something useful like the name(s) of the performer(s) in the scene.
The FeatureAfter losing her job, her purse, and her boyfriend, Alektra Blue finds herself without a penny to her name but with an intriguing offer from rich stranger Randy. He offers to give her lessons, and Alektra is a bit surprised to find they all revolve around sex without Randy doing more than observing and giving commands. She's grateful for his attention, but at the same time never quite sure what kind of game he's playing or where it's going to lead her.
|Scene 1 – Alektra Blue|
Unable to relax after the changes she's been through in her day, Alektra lays back on her new bed and plays with herself. She's more than a little surprised to open her eyes and see Randy watching her, and although she's not happy to find him watching her he encourages her to continue until she has an orgasm as he watches so she can be completely comfortable with herself. Alektra isn't sure, but continues to rub and finger herself as he watches. She gradually picks up the pace as she works herself over with Randy watching, and finally gives herself a nice orgasm.
This is a very nice masturbation scene. It nicely works around the moods as Alektra goes from being horny to nervous to comfortable with herself with Randy watching and being supportive as well as a touch creepy. The camera captures the action very well as well as letting the scene move at a very nice pace. This is a nice start to the movie.
|Scene 2 – Alektra Blue and Tanya James|
Dirty blonde Tanya helps Alektra into a pair of black stockings and shoes, a black and purple bra and panties, and gives her a dark necklace and a bit of makeup before leaning in to kiss her below her ear as she starts Alektra's lessons. They look into each other's eyes before kissing on the mouth, and soon after Alektra's panties are back off so Tanya can lap at her pussy and drive her tongue deep into it. Tanya also fingers it before letting Alektra help her out of her suit to suck, slap, and bite her tits and to lick her ass and play with her pussy from behind. Alektra brings out a clear glass dildo to fuck Tanya with as she lays back in a chair before giving Tanya a silver vibe as she enjoys a string of pears in her ass. The pearls stay in Alektra's ass as Tanya fucks her with a glass dildo before they're pulled out so Alektra can enjoy a glass dildo in her ass. Finally Tanya cuddles up to Alektra as Alektra wonders what Randy would think only to learn that he watched some of their fun.
This is another very nice scene. The action develops nicely between the girls, and the scene moves along at a nice pace. At first I was a little disappointed with the toys coming in as they did make the scene feel a bit more generic, but the chemistry never falters and the scene continues to progress nicely with them. This is another well done scene.
|Scene 3 – Alektra Blue and Alan Stafford|
When Randy lets Alan into the men's room Alektra needed to use, she quickly catches on to his game and demands that Alan show her his cock. They give each other a little show before she gets down to suck and tittyfuck his cock, and then stands up to let him take her from behind by the urinals. Alektra lets Alan spear her shitpussy from behind and missionary style as they move by the sinks. Finally Alektra gets down for a nice facial finish.
This is another hot scene. Alektra nicely shows that even though Wicked is supposed to be a “tame couples studio” according to some, she's still able to get plenty nasty. She and Alan have very nice chemistry and the action is well captured through the scene. There's a great nasty feeling to the scene between it being with a stranger and in a public bathroom, and combined with the anal sex it just feels all the nastier. This is another scene that worked very well for me.
|Scene 4 – Charisma Cappelli and Randy Spears|
After leaving his credit card at Charisma's store “by accident” he returns to retrieve it and quickly puts the moves on Charisma with a kiss. They help each other strip down as they kiss, and Randy has her bend over to tongue and play with her holes before she can get close to naked. He sits back in a chair for Charisma to admire his cock with her tongue, mouth, and hand before she gets up to ride it reverse cowgirl style. She turns around for a traditional cowgirl ride before letting Randy fuck her missionary style, and then gets down for an impressive facial finish.
Not surprisingly, this is another very nice scene. There's a nice touch of class to the scene with Charisma's outfit and the location and it moves along at a very nice pace. Charisma's smile and eyes really help the scene out, and there's nice chemistry right from the start. This is a hot and very friendly scene.
|Scene 5 – Alektra Blue, Chris Johnson, Steven Knight, and Tony DeSergio|
When Alektra wants to head into a porno theater, Randy isn't happy to agree but then turns it into a game offering her money for how many guys she can take on in the theater. Alektra isn't happy with his games, but soon agrees and heads over to take on Chris teasing him with her tits as he rubs his cock through his pants and then having him pull it out so she can stroke and suck it. Steven comes over to join in soon after, followed by Tony, who leads over the theater seats to get there. Alektra eagerly sucks and strokes her way around the guys before having them shoot their loads all over her face and tits, with most of the cum going on her tits.
I'm not a big blowbang fan, but Alektra makes this one work well. As usual Randy watching the action helps to make it a bit hotter and extra naughty, and Alektra gets into the action every bit as well here as she does in the other scenes. Throw in the enthusiasm of the guys and things like Tony leaping over the theater seats to get in on the action and you have another nicely done scene.
|Scene 6 – Alektra Blue, Danny Mountain, and Randy Spears|
When Alektra meets Randy at a seedy by the hour motel, she's ready to fuck and Randy lets her know that his one condition is that she has to wear a blindfold that she can't remove unless he tells her to do so first. Alektra willingly agrees, and after putting on the blindfold Randy talks dirty to her and has her start to touch herself before nodding for Danny to come in and start eating her pussy. As he eats and fingers her the action switches between Danny working her over with Randy watching and Alektra's visions of Randy pleasing her. The action continues to switch between perspectives as Alektra sucks cock in return and then gets spooned. Alektra also lays back to get spooned before taking a nice load on her face. Finally she takes off the blindfold as Randy puts his shirt and jacket back on.
This is a very well done scene. The action splits between the guys very well, and the blindfold kicks up the kinkiness very well. The scene moves along at a nice pace and is very well edited to the point that there's a bit of chemistry that comes through even with the action splitting between Randy and Danny. This is another very well done scene.
|Scene 7 – Alektra Blue, Mikayla Mendez, Tyler Faith, Brad Armstrong, Pat Myne, and Rocco Reed|
When Randy shares a bit of wine from his toast at the dinner party with Charisma, an obviously jealous Alektra quickly moves over to kiss Pat hard on the mouth and then start sucking his cock as the others around the table pair up with their neighbor. Charisma and Randy watch and play lightly with each other as the oral action spreads around the table before the Pat and Rocco take Alektra and Mikayla from behind, respectively, while Brad takes Tanya missionary style on the table. Alektra quickly gives up the ass to Pat doggie style, and soon after they're mixing things up with Alektra laying back for some missionary work for each of her holes with Brad, Tyler riding Rocco in each of the cowgirls, and Mikayla bouncing on Pat's prick cowgirl style and letting him give it to her missionary style. The girls lay back for a little missionary work on the edge of the table before Tyler takes the first pop on her stomach from Pat that Alektra quickly moves in to lick up and swap a little to her of. Rocco pops second on Alektra's stomach with Tyler eagerly getting a taste, and finally Brad pops between Alektra and Mikayla's mouths so they can share it orally.
This is an okay final scene. Orgy scenes are very hit or miss for me, and this one's no different. There's some good action that goes on around the table, but I always seemed to want more from each group and the choppy editing as the groups changed held this scene back for my just like it does in most every other orgy scene. The group looks like they're having fun and the camera work is pretty good, but I just couldn't get into this scene as well as the others.
Educating Alli is a very well done adult version of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Many have known the story in it's other modern mainstream incarnations through My Fair Lady and Pretty Woman, and Brad Armstrong gives it a very nice twist that comes out at the end in this revamp of the story. Alektra Blue and Randy Spears both do a fantastic job in their roles, and the story they're given to work with is also very well done. There's a nice variety of action, and the camera work is well done from start to finish. Educationg Alli is a very well done movie, and quite simply the type of quality adult feature I've come to expect from Wicked Pictures over the years.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Educating Alli, Operation: Tropical Stormy, Mobster's Ball 2, Fornic-Asian, House of Wicked, Roommates, Alektra-Fied, and Fallen. The photo gallery lasts about two and three quarter minutes with about seven seconds per good looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, a bonus scene, and promo material.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts a little over twenty one minutes. Brad starts out working with Alektra with what he wants as they shoot the opening diner scene as well as some of the other scenes around the city. You also get a little of the action for the porno theater scene before moving to the blindfolded hotel scene. It continues through the bathroom fuck and the orgy before chatting with Charisma and Alektra before they shoot the orgy scene. After Randy and Charisma shoot their scene, there's another quick talk with Alektra and then it quickly moves on as they get ready to shoot Alektra's scene with Tanya. Finally you get a bit of the preparation and shooting of Alektra's opening solo scene. This is an okay behind the scenes featurette. You get to see plenty of the scenes being shot, but you don't get much of the great interviews and behind the scenes fun that used to make Wicked's behind the scenes featurettes so enjoyable. This is a decent featurette that adds a little to the overall DVD, but not as much as I hoped.
|Bonus Scene – Alektra Blue and Niko|
The bonus scene comes from Girl Meets Boy. Alektra and Niko kiss passionately as their hands explore each other a little and they help each other strip down. Niko kisses his way around Alektra's nice tight body as he continues to strip her down, and then lets his tongue warm up her twat as she lays back on a couch for him and urges him on. She sucks and titty fucks his cock in return before letting him spoon her pierced pussy. Niko rolls Alektra on top for a quick reverse cowgirl ride and takes her from behind as well before letting her have a nice load over into and around her eager mouth.
This is a very nice couples friendly scene. There's plenty of effort put into the foreplay and setting the sexual mood, and if there's a complaint about the scene it's that after all the effort and time put into the setup the actual fucking seems a little rushed. That said, there's very nice chemistry throughout the entire scene as well as it being nicely captured. This is a hot scene that does just what it sets out to do.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, masturbation, voyeurism, lesbian, rimming (male > female and female > female), toys, anal, titty fucking, oral, blowbang, and orgy
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: 100%
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Wicked DVDs can be found for between about $17 and $25 with several stores offering them near the low end. This one is well worth the money. The story is well written and acted, and the sex fits in nicely with plenty of heat and a bit of nastiness. The technical aspects show some very good care and there's a bit of effort put into the extras as well. This is a very impressive release that's definitely worth checking out.
Note to Wicked Pictures: Thank you for continuing to put out such high quality releases and for showing that quality adult features can still be made.
