Initial Expectations: The little bit Iíve seen of this feature has been amazing. Although Iím not expecting a great overall DVD, I am expecting a great feature.
Initial Reaction: Itís great! Are you sure this wasnít made by Andrew Blake?
Who Should Watch It : Fans of artistic sex such as that done by Andrew Blake
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants more extreme sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is very well done. At times itís dubbed, but the video is sometimes slowed a bit which requires dubbing rather than having the performers sound like James Earl Jones. Needless to say, when two girls are pleasuring each other, you donít want to be wondering if the next thing one of them will say is ďLuke, I am your father.Ē. The picture has a slight graininess that I think is due to the movie being shot on film, but thatís about the only complaint I can have about it. Itís very even, and there are very few shadows that interfere with the action.
Music: The music has kind of a jazz and new age feel to it that works great with the artistic nature of the movie. It has kind of a haunting nature, but is also very beautiful, just like most of the images in the feature. Itís frequently a bit loud, but does work for the feature.
The Feature: Julia Ann has been feeling restless, and the addition of a new satellite dish gives her something new to focus on. Most of the channels bored her, but she found a European channel that wasnít like anything sheíd seen before. What she sees on the TV awakens things in her, and leads to Julia Ann learning new things about herself sexually.
The first thing Julia Ann sees on her new must-see TV is Maeva, as she takes a bath in a lake with a multitude of colored lights shining down on her and rain falling around her. Itís a very short scene, and one that doesnít do much more than set the mood for the feature and get you used to some of the artistic feel.
Next up, Julia Ann discovers Celeste and Misty Rain. Both are wearing fishnet bodysuits, gloves, solid black hoods, collars, and other bondage type fetishwear. Celeste removes her hood and collar and leads Misty by her leash before removing her mask. Celeste rims and then tongue fucks Mistyís ass before letting Misty work her over with a silver vibe. Afterwards, Celeste sits on Mistyís face before finishing things with a kiss. Every now and then the action breaks away to show Julia Ann as she watches and plays with herself. Itís a great scene, and one that quite a few fans of these stars might need to schedule more than one viewing to get through. The girls have great chemistry together, and seem to really be enjoying themselves.
Julia Ann gets more than a reading from clairvoyant Dyanna Lauren. Dyanna gives Julia a talisman, blindfolds her, and then starts to kiss her way down Juliaís body, removing clothing as necessary. She works her way down across Juliaís large tits to her nicely trimmed pussy while running her hands across Juliaís amazing body. After having enough, Julia removes the blindfold and puts it on Dyanna. She hoists up Dyannaís dress and starts to lick her pussy from behind before setting Dyanna down on the chair to munch further. Itís a hot scene that, once again, has some great chemistry in addition to the great art direction. Unfortunately, it ends extremely abruptly and doesnít feel like itís close to over. Itís almost like the camera ran out of film and nobody cared enough to get more.
Celeste returns for the next TV show, this time with Woody Long. Woody oils up Celesteís massive mams and then worships her shoes and feet. She releases him from his Speedo and then puts her tits and greatly missed oral skills to work on his unit before sliding her snatch down on it. She finishes him off by taking an impressive pop in her mouth and down her chin. Celesteís oral antics are nicely followed and drug out in slow motion after the pop, which nicely prolongs the ending to this very hot scene. Itís a great scene, and has a nicely fun feel to it. Celeste appears to be really enjoying herself, and I think quite a few guys would give their right arm to be where he was in this scene.
Julia Annís first boy - girl scene ever is next, which occurs with Aaron Colt, who appears to go to the Michael Bolton School of Hair Management from the early nineties. Julia comes into the room Aaron is in and removes her robe to show some great black lingerie. She dances for him across the room as he uses all his willpower to not start drooling all over himself and then comes over to give him a better look and taste her tits. She tames him by undoing his belt and sliding it around his neck lick a leash and then drops down to briefly suck his cock before fucking him. She starts off reverse cowgirl and then takes hot wax on her ass before Aaron fucks her doggie style. She also gets her ass spanked and fingered before taking a slightly below average pop on her slightly overdone implants. Itís an amazing scene, especially for a first timer, thatís near perfect.
Afterwards, Julia sneaks away to the TV and finds Jenna Jamesonís first lesbian scene, which occurs with Draghixa. Jenna approaches Draghixa from behind as she looks out a window and starts caressing Draghixaís body. Both girls look good enough to eat, and since itís early in Jennaís career youíd probably even be able to taste something other than silicone, and are dressed in white lacy lingerie. They take turns softly working each other over with their tongues before building things up a little more with their fingers. Finally they get into a sixty nine where they finish each other off, ending with some very nice kissing. Itís a very nice, and very soft scene.
Office worker Asia Carrera is taken away from her desk by vinyl-clad Celeste and Paula Price next. They strip her down to her stockings and garter belt and make her lick their boots. Afterwards Celeste works on Asia a bit with a long acrylic dildo, and then joins Paula in putting on a black strap-on. They each take an end to work on Asia, and then lose the toys so they can work each other over naturally. Finally, Celeste and Paula reward Asia by letting her relax and receive before they end things with a bit of kissing. Once again, itís a very hot scene with great artistic vision and wonderful chemistry. Thereís a lot of talent between these three ladies, so this shouldnít come as much of a surprise. Sadly, though, it seems like scenes with this much talent end up lacking. Thankfully this isnít one of them.
Shayla LaVeaux joins Aaron Colt in bed next while Julia drives home. This has to be one of Shaylaís earliest scenes. About the only way I recognized her is her eyes, which are just as beautiful then as now. Shayla starts off sucking Aaronís cock, and is interrupted by Julia Ann, who gets extremely pissed. Julia slaps Shayla a bit, and then tries turning the other cheek and loving her neighbor. After slamming her against the wall, Julia starts kissing Shayla and then moves down to lick her pussy. They move over to the bed, where Shayla helps Julia strip out of her constrictive clothing, and then eats her pussy. After the girls warm each other up, Julia lovingly motions to Aaron to come join them. The girls start out teaming up to suck Aaronís cock before he fucks Julia with Shayla riding her face. He finishes things off by blowing his ball butter over the both of them as they cuddle together. Itís another great and sexy scene. Once again the chemistry is fantastic, as is the artistic direction.
Before the penultimate scene, Julia Ann shares her new television discovery with Aaron and Shayla. P. J. Sparxx starts out strapped into a love swing as Deidre Holland tongues her pussy. Itís a very short scene, and there isnít much of a chance to build anything up. Thereís just about as much action going on with Julia, Shayla, and Aaron on the couch as whatís on the TV.
Finally, Mark Davis, looking like he just shaved for the first time immediately before this was shot, takes on Tiffany Mynx. Mark starts out licking her pussy as Tiffany stands in front of him. Tiffany returns the favor, roughly biting Markís nipples before moving down to suck his cock while looking up at her with her beautiful eyes. She gets a little rough down there also, nibbling at Markís cock while looking up naughtily. They starts fucking energetically, with Mark picking Tiffany up and fucking her in mid-air before lying her down to fuck her missionary style. Tiffany takes control afterwards, and stretches out her ass on Markís cock reverse cowgirl style before taking him down her throat and onto her face. Itís a very hot scene to end with, and has a nice little bit of nastiness to it thanks to some of Tiffanyís reactions.
Cameron Grant is well known as one of the leading directors who imitate Andre Blakeís style. Thatís in full evidence here in almost every moment of the feature. Elements of Desire is extremely artistic and very well made. The camera rarely stays in one spot, instead moving around to give you a little closer look all over. Although I do like to catch one visual where I can see everything thatís going on now and then, this works great for everything outside of wanting to pause the video and see everything. It does get a little annoying, but only a little, at times, since the camera often seems to follow the mouth of one of the people, and move around where ever the mouth wanders. There isnít much of a plot, but the little there is works as a nice framework for the wide variety of scenes. The scenes are nicely varied, both stylistically and in length. Both Celeste and Julia Ann really stand out here, with every one of either of their scenes being extremely well done. Up until recently I havenít paid too much attention to Julia Ann, but after watching a few of her features lately, Iím thrilled that sheís returned to the adult films. Elements of Desire is one heck of a great adult film, and one that anybody who likes artistic sex should check out as soon as possible.

Themes: Straight, masturbation, lesbian, fetishwear, B&D, rimming (female > female), toys, foot worship, toe-ing, hot wax, spanking, and anal
Raincoat Factor: Very High
Overall: Currently, Elements of Desire can be found online for between $10 and $25 with several stores offering it below $15. This is a steal for this movie! Itís one of the hottest and most visually stunning features Iíve seen in a long time. Unfortunately the transfer lacks a bit due to the feature being shot on film, and there isnít much of anything for extras, but the movie is so amazing that I canít help but recommend it.
Note to Adam & Eve: I know youíve re-released this DVD recently, and if youíve improved it at all compared to this one, THANK YOU!!!
