Initial Expectations: Nick Orleans is one of my favorite directors, which is enough to give me quite a bit of hope for this feature.
Initial Reaction: Itís different from many of Nick Orleansí other features, which is good and bad.
Who Should Watch It : Couples and fans of Gwen Summers
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for nastier sex or who doesnít like a plot
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is normally clear and well balanced, although the final orgy sceneís balance is often a little off. There are a few places where itís dubbed, but most of this is in the multiple angles. The video has a little grain and is a little shakey at times. It also has a few soft focus and shadow problems. Thereís also a time or two when the cameraman gets caught in the scene for a second or two.
Music: The music is kind of cheesy and fun, which helps out the mood of the feature. Unfortunately itís a little too loud also and frequently drowns out anything the performers are saying.
Menus: The main menu is very plain with a minimum of animation. The chapter menu is nicely done. It allows you to choose a scene based on a small clip of the scene, a scene number, and a list of the stars in the scene, both male and female.
The Feature: Student (college I assume) Gwen Summers has a homework assignment most people would kill for. She has to do a report on exhibitionism, complete with a lot of photographs, and enlists her friendsí help. Gwen has a hard time adjusting to the assignment, so at the recommendation of Tina Tyler, seeks help at the Freedom Institute to open her up a little.
Nicole Sheriden, a very cute implanted blonde, helps out first. She strips down for Gwen and then masturbates as Gwen snaps a few pictures. Theyíre interrupted by Voodoo, whoís extremely supportive, which makes Gwen a little nervous. Gwen heads to the bathroom and rips off her pants so she can play with herself, and is soon after caught by Nicole, who brings her back out into the living room to watch her and Voodoo. Voodoo eats Nicoleís pussy and ass while they talk dirty back and forth before sliding his cock into her snatch. Nicole trades places with Voodoo so he can lay back and fuck her ass. Voodoo gives Nicole a good hard ass fucking in a couple positions before she sucks and jerks him off all over her tits and face. Itís an extremely hot scene that has great chemistry.
The tantalizing Tina Tyler gets help from John West and Max Steele after agreeing that for one day they make the house ďclothing optional. Tina finds the guys watching the exercise channel nude, and strips down to her bra, panties, and stockings before joining them on the couch. She quickly starts giving them handjobs before starting to suck their cocks. Tina takes things a little further by giving them some great all natural tit fucking. She nicely alternates back and forth between the guys using her mouth, tits, and hands until they end up all over her nicely natural knockers, ďglazing them like fucking donuts, as Tina herself puts it. As usual, Tina turns out a great scene, but I have to admit to being a little disappointed to not see Tina using the rest of her body.
Gwen Summers fantasizes about being a runway model and Nick Manning not being able to resist her. She tries on several different lingerie outfits for him in between his kissing her all over her body. She finally ends up in a blue outfit, complete with stockings, before Nick ravages her pussy. She repays his work with a very nice blowjob before laying back so he can spear her snatch. They work through a few more positions as Nick encourages Gwen to talk dirty to him as he fucks her. Gwen finishes things by taking Nickís nut butter on her tits. Itís a pretty hot scene with nice chemistry. Gwen has really annoyed me in some of her past scenes, but she isnít too bad here.
Next up, Ava Vincent, a cute blonde who normally has a nasty streak in her eye, watches Mia Smiles, an extremely cute Oriental, suck Chris Cannonís cock while masturbating. Mia stands up while sucking Chrisís cock, which gives a great view of her superb ass before they trade positions so Chrisís tongue can dance on Miaís pussy. As Chris starts fucking Miaís pussy, Herschel Savage walks up to Ava with a raging hard-on for her to try and cure. Ava sucks Herschelís cock until he pops on her nicely natural tits while Chris and Mia work through several standard positions. Chris finally finishes things with a nice pop on Miaís great ass. Itís another hot scene that has very nice chemistry.
Gwen tries to observe Heather Lyn, a cute redhead with a natural body and a few tattoos, and Alec Metro at the Freedom Institute next. She runs into problems when Heather and Alex are even more shy than she is and donít even want to strip for her. To solve the problem, she offers to do some things and record their reactions. She dances for Heather a little, and then tries to get Alec to masturbate for her. Heís reluctant but agrees when she offers to touch Heather a little. Itís enough to get them both going, since the next thing you know both Alec and Heather are part naked and Heatherís working over Alecís cock with her mouth. Alec returns the favor by licking Heatherís pussy through her white nylons, while Gwen gets into it enough to start masturbating while watching. Alec cuts open Heatherís nylons with a pair of scissors to give him better access and then has her sit on his face. After fucking his face with some good energy, Heather hops on to ride Alecís cock and then has him pile driver her pussy. Heather and Alec finish things off with a little doggie style before Heather takes Alecís man milk on all over herself. Itís a pretty hot scene, but there seemed to be a little something missing that I couldnít put my finger on. Heather and Alec work well together, and Gwen stays nicely in the background masturbating without ever getting too much attention.
Zana, a hot blonde nympho, gets a little help releasing her inhibitions from Dale DaBone and Joey Ray. She has them start to jerk off before making them come closer so she can suck their cocks. Unlike the earlier scene with Tina Tyler, Zana lets the boys take things much further. Dale fucks Zanaís pussy as Joey watches, although he canít take it too long and starts fucking her mouth as Dale continues in her pussy. Zana turns around so Joey can get her turn, letting him fuck her from behind as she sucks Daleís cock. Finally, Zana lets Dale fuck her ass reverse cowgirl. Surprisingly, with the fuck beast Zana is, she doesnít have Joey pull into her pussy also, and soon has Dale and Joey blast face and chest her with their guy goo, which she picks up with her fingers and swallows down. As usual with Zana, itís a very hot scene that has a lot of replay value.
Finally, Gwen, now decked out in a little fetishwear, masturbates and watches John Decker fuck Ava Vincent before joining in with Jason McCain. Jason eats Gwenís pussy including working it over with fingers from both his hands before letting her suck his cock. Gwen picks up a nearby video camera to capture some of the action with Jason as well as some of the action between Ava and John, who have stopped fucking and went for a little oral sex now. Both guys also work over their partnerís pussy and ass with their fingers before Jason starts fucking Gwenís pussy. John starts out fucking Avaís pussy missionary style again, but later she takes it in her ass in a few positions while telling John she wants him to fuck her ass hard. Gwen takes a break from fucking to watch Ava get ass fucked, and then goes back to letting Jason fuck her pussy. Both couples end things with a chest pop with the credits rolling only a second or two later. Itís another hot scene with nice chemistry and a nice one to end the feature with.
Although itís not a bad movie, I was a little disappointed with The Hotspot. Iíve watched many of Nick Orleansí features, and this one is quite a bit different from most of his. It has more of a mainstream porn feel to it, rather than the slow and more artistic feel of most of his features. I was also a little disappointed that the music was done by somebody other than Saint, which is something Iíve come to look forward to in Mr. Orleansí features. The Hotspot actually has a storyline, which is handled about like most other porno plots. Itís fun but has plot holes bigger than Bridgette Kerkoveís ass after sheís had a rough scene with Lexington Steele. The sex is a little above average and nicely varied. Itís a nice movie, just a bit of a disappointment when youíre expecting one of Nick Orleansí other styles.
Extras: Although itís not listed on the cover or anywhere else in the DVD, some scenes include multiple angles. Although theyíre close, unfortunately they arenít true multiple angles. The audio and video synch appear to be off by about a second.
Bios are included for the terrific Tina Tyler, Chris Cannon., Zana, Nick Manning, Joey Ray, Jason McCain, Heather Lyn, Gwen Summers, Dale DaBone, Ava Vincent, and Nicole Sheriden. The personal information varies from person to person, but each bio includes a photo of the star and a link to the starís scene. The photo gallery includes an amazing sixty nine snapshots, which are nicely displayed in a thumbnail format. You can select a photo to blow it up to full screen size, which also lets you know which star is in the photos. 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, Sex Across America #5: Miami, Crystal Dreams, Sex Spell, The Puppeteer, A Midsummer Nightís Cream, Caribbean Undercover, A Wolfís Tail, Emerald Rain, The Fiesta, Invisible, Sex Island, and A Witchís Tail. Thereís also a bonus scene and a behind the scenes featurette.
The bonus scene is from Luc Wylderís Forbidden Lustand stars Bridgette Kerkove, Dale DaBone, Alexandra Silk, Mickey G., and Lola. Bridgette and Dale are married and attending a sexual retreat. Dale isnít sure about it and is afraid of losing Bridgette after she has some new experiences, but since heís fairly closed off, Bridgette heads off to watch a session. Dale soon sees Alexandra Silk with Lola and Mickey G., whoís about to take the next step by having Lola fuck his ass. Lola starts Mickey off with a little tongue action for his ass before letting him eat her pussy. Alexandra joins in also, sucking Mickeyís cock and fingering his ass as Mickey and Lola sixty nine. As Mickey fucks Lola from behind, Alexandra warms up Mickeyís ass with some anal beads and plays with herself. Alexandra hops above Mickeyís face to suck his cock as Lola works her strap on into Mickeyís 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. Itís a nicely done scene, although I have no doubts that it will shock and or turn off quite a few people.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts almost eighteen minutes and features almost the entire cast having a heck of a lot of fun. It starts out with some nice shots of Nicole Sheriden and an interview about how she got started. Chris Cannon and Mia Smiles follow her up, and have some fun talking about each other before Dale DaBone and Joey Ray provide some comic relief. Heather Lyn, Alec Metro, and the ďclassic Tina Tyler also have a few short segments before a behind the scenes sequence from the scene between Gwen Summers and Nick Manning. Finally, thereís a little bit with Ava Vincent and the final group scene. Throughout the behind the scenes, thereís some nice subtitles that add extra comments and keep things nice and light. There are also a few clips of the movie to let you connect the stars off screen with their scene. Itís a great behind the scenes featurette, and without a doubt one of the most fun ones Iíve watched so far.
Themes: Straight, exhibitionism, masturbation, rimming (male > female), anal, group, tit-fuck, oral, and spanking
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Overall: Most of Adam & Eveís Premium Collection titles can be found online for between $15 and $25 with quite a few stores offering them for under $20. Itís a fair range for this title. The storyline is pretty average and the sex is a little above average. The transfer leaves a bit to be desired in places, but the extras are very nice.
Note to Adam & Eve: As usual with your Premium Collection, this is a nice package. The bonus sceneís subject is a bit risky, but itís nice to see you willing to take a few risks with your titles that might expand a few of your viewerís minds. I also hope you have more behind the scenes features like this one, which was excellent and a lot of fun.
