Jacky St. James

Dahlia Sky (listed here as Bailey Blue), Jenna J. Ross, Maddy O'Reilly, and Vanilla Deville
Alec Knight, Brad Tyler, Mark Wood, and Xander Corvus with Tyler Nixon in a non-sex role

Audio /Video Quality:
The technical aspects are very well done. The audio is clear and well balanced and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great. There's the usual excellent care towards the lighting that one expects with Eddie Powell around a camera, and the picture is clear with a very solid hand and eye on the camera.

Watermark Warning:
Although I don't know of anybody who likes watermarks, I can understand companies wanting to take some kind of action to protect themselves with how much piracy occurs in today's world. As I know some don't agree with this thought, I will note that there is a fairly tasteful watermark in the lower right corner. It's at a nice brightness that lets it fade into the picture often, and I found it very easy to put out of my mind. If one needs watermarks, this is a good way to do them.

The Movie:
Jacky St. James continues the Tabu Tales series with four new tales of step-families coming together in ways they know are wrong but just can't resist.

Scene 1

Jenna J. Ross


Xander Corvus

As brunette Jenna enjoys a cup of coffee and a good book outside, she hears stepbrother Xander getting in a fight with his girlfriend only to have him calling for her help soon after. She finds Xander handcuffed to a dresser in the bedroom before he tells her that his girlfriend was trying to humiliate him by putting the key to the cuffs in his underwear. Jenna reluctantly reaches in to get the key and free him before returning to her book in the kitchen. Xander walks in to apologize for the situation and having wood, and then gets a surprise when Jenna confesses that she's been wondering if she could deep throat his cock since he might be too big for her. After a little more chatting she makes her way over to Xander and sucks him from semi-hard to fully erect as she eagerly swallows his cock all the way down repeatedly. He bends her over the kitchen counter and starts fucking her as he strips her down. Xander rolls Jenna over to eat and play with her pussy, and also mixes in a bit of ass licking before he fucks her missionary style. He fucks her face a bit more and tests her gag reflex before laying back to let Jenna ride him in the cowgirls with a little more oral action worked in. Xander takes Jenna from behind a bit more before she drops down for a nice facial finish.

Scene 2

Dahlia Sky


Alec Knight

Alec's surprised at how quickly his stepdaughter Dahlia has turned from a girl into a woman, and can't help but be a little tempted by her when she's home for the summer and his wife's away. He's more than surprised when Dahlia wakes him as she crawls in bed with him telling him that she wants him and knows her mom won't be back until the next day. Alec begs her to stop, but can't bring himself to stop her as she pulls his cock out of his pajama pants to start sucking him. He goes from resistance to fully participating as Dahlia sucks his cock and then lays her back to tongue her holes as she gives him plenty of vocal encouragement. Alec stands up to fuck her missionary style , and Dahlia eagerly sucks and strokes his cock a bit more while giving him plenty of great eyes. They share a kiss before moving back to the bed where Alec tongues her and then spoons her. Dahlia sucks his cock and kisses him a bit more before riding him in the cowgirls. She lets Alec fuck her doggie style, and he finally pulls out to pop on her great ass.

Scene 3

Maddy O'Reilly


Mark Wood

When Maddy's mom fell into a deep depression and barely left the bed for months, her stepdad Mark took things very hard. Maddy did her best to step things up where she could for him running errands for him as well as making sure he remembers the other parts of life he needs to. She lets him know that things are going to have to change, and if she's going to act like his surrogate wife she wants some more wifely attention as well because her mom's condition isn't going to change and he deserves better. Mark is shocked and quickly leaves for work, but later decides that Maddy is right and joins her in the shower. He kisses her before she drops down to suck and stroke his cock. Mark starts to fuck her standing up from behind, and then sits back so she can ride him cowgirl style. Maddy turns around for the reverse cowgirl as well as sucking Mark's cock a bit more before they return to fucking standing up with Mark taking her from behind as the water pours over them. She encourages Mark to get a bit rough with her pulling her hair and shoving her face into the shower stream. Finally Maddy drops down to suck Mark to a nice pop that she lustfully takes over her face and wipes into her mouth.

Scene 4

Vanilla DeVille


Brad Tyler

Brad's never had a really good relationship with his stepmom Vanilla, and is more than surprised when his buddy Tyler finds links to plenty of stepson porn on her computer. He does everything he can to avoid her, but when he finally lets her know she gets understandably upset. When they talk about it later, she confesses to having fantasies about him knowing that there's no repercussions to a fantasy in one's head. Brad's surprised and flattered that she's gotten off to the thought of him, and when she says that she's happy with her fantasies because she knows she can't have the real thing, Brad moves in to change that. He kisses her mouth and big titties and then continues south to eat her box. Vanilla kisses Brad as she helps him strip down and then lays back for him to fuck her missionary style. They kiss and she lays him back to work his cock over with her hand, tits, and mouth, and even takes him all the way down her throat. Vanilla works in plenty of great eye contact and a bit of ball sucking as she works him over, and then moves up so he can suck her tits and penetrate her cowgirl style. She swallows Brad's bone a bit more before impaling herself on it reverse cowgirl style, and then hops off so they can sixty-nine. Vanilla lets Brad take her doggie style and has him spank her ass before finally laying back so he can decorate her tits as she watches from below and licks his cock and balls.

I'll say right away that the family themes that populate The Family That Lays Together, as well as the rest of the Tabu Tales line, is something that's just not a turn-on for me. I'll say right along with that statement that The Family That Lays Together is one heck of a hot release. Releases like this are why I occasionally make myself watch a movie that's outside my normal comfort zone or likes, just in case I find something new to like. Granted, I've been a big fan of Jacky St. James for quite a while and have watched another release in this series so this wasn't a completely new experience for me, but it still says a lot when a movie can take something that's not a turn-on for you and have you completely enthralled. Jenna J. Ross definitely did this for me, and had me in awe through the first scene. When I commented at how amazing she was on Twitter while watching the movie, Jacky St. James quickly commented back on her being without question one of the most underrated performers in the biz, and even that seems like an understatement with the performance she gives here. I've seen plenty of “superstars” that at their best didn't come halfway to the performance Jenna gives here. Dahlia Sky keeps things going just as well with Alec, and the two of them play the seduction every bit as well as they do the passionate sex. Although Jenna J. Ross might surprise people with her scene, Maddy O'Reilly turning out a fantastic performance should come as a surprise to nobody by now. I have yet to be disappointed by this lady, and she turns out yet another great performance with plenty of hints of great things still to come from her. Finally there's Vanilla DeVille, who ends the movie every bit as well as Jenna starts it. I love her talk with Brad about her fantasies and the emotional groundwork she lays for the entire scene with it. There's plenty of chemistry and energy to go with her acting ability once she gets busy with Brad, and with performances like this I'm surprised to not see her in more features (or more movies period). Through it all, the talent behind the camera seems to do every bit as solid of a job as the talent in front of it. The stories are very well done with some nice development to set things up, just as one would expect from Jacky St. James. The camera work is Eddie Powell's typical solid and artistic style, and it's all drawn together very nicely by the extremely talented editing of Gabrielle Anex. The Family That Lays Together may work around a subject many think is wrong, but everything about this release is done right.

The Extras:
The photo gallery lasts about a minute and a half. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, trailers, a “Pick Your Pleasure” option, and commercials.

The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twenty four minutes and features Jacky chatting with the cast and always giving them a chance to talk about their fans and how their fans can find them. Jacky and Vanilla start out chatting about being excited to work with each other again, her sexual fantasies, and different subjects around the industry such as working with different guys and her journey into the industry. Brad joins Vanilla for another chat after the scene about working together and how much they enjoyed each other. Mark chats about being in his sixteenth year in the industry, taboo scenes, and working with Maddy O'Reilly. Maddy shows up next to talk about doing taboo scenes, her sexual fantasies, and why people are drawn to the Tabu Tales line. Xander talks about the turn-on of the family taboo, what he enjoyed about the scene, and his fans. Jenna talks about it being their first time working together, how she and her character are alike along with deep throating and looking forward to working with Xander again. Not surprisingly, this is a very nice featurette. Jacky does a great job interacting with the players and makes sure they're able to let their fans find them online. There's plenty of personality here along with a great feeling, and that makes this a great addition to the overall DVD.

Final Thoughts:
It's smoking hot and definitely worth the purchase.

Note to Digital Sin:
There's no denying that Jacky St. James does an amazing job behind the camera, but I hope you let her out of this niche to explore a few other areas as well.
