Initial Expectations: The little I’ve seen of this feature as bonus scenes impresses me. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of it.
Initial Reaction: It’s a nicely done couples movie with a good touch of fetish.
Who Should Watch It : Couples wanting a bit of kink with their porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier kinkiness
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and well balanced. There’s a few very minor background noises, but they’re barely noticeable and normally during the outdoor scenes. The video has a little grain and a couple minor lighting flickers, but that’s about it for problems. Other than that, most everything is nicely even right out to the edge of the screen. Even the lighting appears even despite several of the scenes being shot outdoors.
Music: The music is soft and romantic, with a slight new age feel. It’s very nicely balanced with the rest of the audio, but also very repetitive and after a while a little annoying because of it.
Menus: The main menu is very relaxing, and has a picture of a small waterfall above the choices. It’s a different main menu, and although it looks nice, I’m not sure if gets me in the mood for porn. The chapter menu is very simple and lets you select a scene based on a small clip of each scene.
The Feature: After five years of marriage, Bridgette Kerkove and Dale DaBone pay a visit to Sandalwood. Unlike many retreats, this is a sexual retreat rather than a spiritual one. Under the guidance of Alexandra Silk, Bridgette and Dale explore their fantasies and explore some of their sexual potential.
Bridgette Kerkove and Dale DaBone start things out. After checking out their room, Dale and Bridgette help free each other a bit from their highly restraining clothing. Bridgette appears to sense that Dale’s unit is in dire need of help, and administers some head-to-head, which does seem to revive him quiet well. He repays her with a little bit of pussy licking before they work through several of the standard positions. Bridgette finishes things up by taking Dale on her heavily implanted tits, and then sucking out the last few drops.
This is a fairly average scene, with Bridgette’s great blowjob being the definite high point. The fucking, unfortunately, seemed a bit mechanical, This brought down much of the scene for me and didn’t give the feature the best start. On the other hand, it does make the trip to Sandalwood seem very necessary.
Alexandra Silk starts out the first lesson with the help of Evan Stone teaching Mariesa, Joey Ray, Mia Smiles, Chris Cannon, and Summer Storm about masturbation. Alexandra guides the couples, having them start out gently caressing each other using both their hands and mouths. After the couples get a good start she walks around with a box full of toys and allows them to pick out something special to continue working on each other with. Most everybody seems to take things nice and slow, but Evan and Summer quickly build up momentum and get a little vocal as well.
Sadly, the scene ends fairly abruptly, and doesn’t seem done since there’s three guys and not a single drop of guy goo flying around. It also moves around between the couples and Alexandra moving around the room that it never really feels like anything more than a tease.
After the class, Joey Ray and Mariesa, who looks to be Latin and would be a lot cuter without a few of her tattoos, stick around to finish what they started. Mariesa gives Joey some nice knob gobbling before gesturing that he should come down and fuck her. Joey gives it to her missionary style and doggy style before popping on her very nice ass.
This scene is pretty hot. Mariesa looks like she’s into it, but is a perfect example of bedroom sex versus camera sex. She’s definitely practicing bedroom sex here, so the camera can’t see some of what it should many times and she stays fairly quiet. She smiles a lot and moves with Joey, which lets you know that she really is into it, but she isn’t as over the top as some other performers. This can be a good or a bad thing, and here it’s a fairly good thing. Oddly, this scene appears to use a condom for part of it but not all.
Next up, Mia Smiles confesses her love of latex to hubby Chris Cannon. After changing and strutting her stuff for Chris, Mia and Chris exchange oral favors with Mia staying in her fetishwear almost the entire time and keeping her fuck-me boots and a bit of lingerie on. Mia moves onto her back for Chris to start out fucking her missioanry style. They move through a bit of spooning and doggie before Chris finally pops on Mia’s boot.
This is a good scene, but really needed another trip through the editing bay. It seemed to go on forever for what it was even when I consider myself a fan of Mia. She and Chris put nice energy into the scene and have the great chemistry one would expect from a real life couple, but the blowjob and missionary seem to go on forever while the other positions seem to breeze by.
Mickey G. and Lola take their relationship to the next stage with the help of Alexandra Silk. Lola starts Mickey off with a little tongue action for his ass before letting him eat her pussy. Alexandra joins in also, sucking Mickey’s cock and fingering his ass as Mickey and Lola sixty nine. As Mickey fucks Lola from behind, Alexandra warms up Mickey’s ass with some anal beads and plays with herself. Alexandra hops above Mickey’s face to suck his cock as Lola works her strap on into Mickey’s ass. Alexandra watches as Lola gives Mickey a nice ass fucking, even continuing a little after Mickey jerks himself off over his stomach. The three of them end things with some nice kissing and Mickey collapsing on the blanket.
This is a nicely done scene, although I have no doubts that it will shock and or turn off quite a few people. Luckily, male anal penetration also turns on quite a few people so I’m thrilled that Luc Wylder has chosen to include it in this feature. It fits in perfectly with the theme of the movie and is darn hot as well! Mickey is one of the few major guys who’s regularly been balled, and he does a great job here and does so in a romantic way while looking like he’s completely enjoying himself.
Tabitha and Jonathan Stern get busy in the penultimate scene with Bridgette Kerkove and Dale DaBone. Bridgette and Dale watch at first while Alexandra Silk gives them a few instructions. They start off caressing each other’s body with Alexandra rubbing each of them for luck, before Tabitha rides Jonathan’s tongue and finally leans down to enjoy his cock as well. Jonathan gets to keep laying back as Tabitha rides him before she lays down on her stomach and lets him fuck her from behind. They finish things up in missionary, with Jonathan blowing his ball butter in Tabitha’s pussy.
It’s a great scene, which is nothing unusual with this couple. It has very nice energy and the great chemistry that one would hope for with a real life couple. I also love that they finish things with a cream pie, which I think will really appeal with quite a few couples.
Finally, Bridgette Kerkove, who sadly looks more like a blow-up doll than a human being here, and Dale DaBone watch and then get busy as Evan Stone takes on Alexandra Silk and Summer Storm in front of them. The threesome starts out caressing each other before the girls, with Summer taking the lead, start working over Evan’s cock orally. As Bridgette starts sucking Dale’s bone, the threesome moves forward with Evan stretching Alexandra’s slit. Dale continues to warm Bridgette up, and when she’s ready to go, Evan joins in so Bridgette can suck his cock. Dale’s threatened at first, but comes around when he realizes he can still fuck her as she sucks. Dale fucks Bridgette from behind, as well as letting her ride him, and Evan joins in to DP her before they both pop on Bridgette’s great looking ass.
This is a very different scene, but one that has some decent heat to it. Dale does a good job of acting throughout the scene, and Bridgette does a great job of keeping things moving. It feels like a very natural end to the movie, and makes for a great final scene.
Forbidden Lust is a pretty good couples movie. It doesn’t quite have a plot, but it doesn’t go towards the vignette or all sex style either. There’s a loose plot that draws the wide variety of scenes together nicely. Dale makes for a great male lead here, as I think he’s one of the most attractive men in porn and he can also act. Bridgette makes for a great choice for her openness to most everything, but I don’t think she’s one of the best choices here due to her extensive surgeries despite some good acting talent. The scenes have a nice variety and bring in some great fetish aspects while never getting extremely nasty. Rather than going the hardcore Tanya Hyde route things stay very couples friendly and very believable, and should nicely allow couples to explore a few things outside the stereotypical sexuality in a friendly fashion. The sexual retreat theme works great for bringing in the different ideas, and the cast looks to get into them nicely. Forbidden Lust nicely merges a bit of fetish with a couples feel.
Extras: Trailers are included for Sex Across America: 1st Stop Las Vegas, Sex Across America Second Stop: New Orleans, Sex Across America Third Stop: San Francisco, Crystal Dreams,The Dinner Party 3 (as well as The Fiesta as it was later titled), Sex Spell, The Puppeteer, A Midsummer Night’s Cream, Caribbean Undercover, Emerald Rain, Sex Island, and A Witch’s Tail. In a very sloppy touch, some of the trailers are repeated, and other titles are included under two different titles. Bios with a ton of personal information and a nice photo are included for Alexandra Silk, Bridgette Kerkove, Lola, Meriesa, Mia Smiles, Summer Storm, and Tabith Stern. The roughly three dozen nice looking snapshots and full screen photos can be viewed either separately or as a three and a half minute slide show. There’s also a four and a half minute cum shot recap, internet information, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette, which was done by Joey Ray, lasts over fifty minutes! Joey does a nice job moving around the cast and crew introducing people and talking with them about what’s going on. Joey captures plenty of great conversations with the stars, such as Tabitha Stern rambling on about sex and Mickey G. and Lola talking about her giving it to him in the ass. Lola even gives a great butt shot, showing off how nicely it’s growing. There’s also nice interviews with Mia Smiles and Chris Cannon, Alexandra Silk, Scarlet Begonia, Joey Ray, and Bridgette Kerkove. Of course, Evan Stone is around to add a little levity as well and you get to see Luc Wylder working with the cast. It’s a very nicely done behind the scenes featurette and shows that Joey Ray has some decent skill behind the camera as well as in front of it.

Overall: Currently, most of Adam & Eve’s Premium Collection DVDs can be found online for between $13 and $22, with many stores offering them for around $18. If you’re looking for something with a bit of kink to share with that special somebody, this will be a bargain at the low end. The movie nicely blends a bit of fetish with a couples feel. The technical aspects are nicely done, and there’s even a very nice behind the scenes feature.
Note to Adam & Eve: This was a nice variation on the typical couples movie. I hope you explore your fetish side more in the future!
