Initial Expectations: Brad Armstrong normally makes a very good feature, and the cast here is one of the best overall Iíve seen in quite a while.
Initial Reaction: Itís a kind of different porno, and very nicely done.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who wants a fairly strong framework around the sex scenes without too much plot
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for more extreme sex
Audio /Video Quality: Wicked is well known for their high technical qualities, and this one doesnít miss that mark by much. The video has a slightly dark feeling, which fits the feature very well. Most of the non-sex scenes take place in one room which feels like it should be dark. There are a few shadows throughout the feature, but very few seem to be in the way of anything. The audio is just about as good. Through the feature it is just as good, and is nicely balanced and clear. It seems a little soft, and oddly, is louder during the commentary track than in the movie track. Also, thereís a spot or two during the commentary track where the balance gets muffled, with the commentary almost completely disappearing for a few seconds and then returning.
Music: The music is nicely balanced with the rest of the audio for the most part, but is occasionally a little on the loud side. It varies in tone a bit from scene to scene, but often has kind of a rough feeling that fits some of the dark nature of the feature.
Menus: As usual with Wickedís releases, theyíve put some nice care into their menus. The main menu has some nice animation that fits the style of the cover. The chapter menu also has a similar style, but is a bit more standard. It lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of the scene and a chapter menu.
The Feature: Infidelity revolves around a support group, led by Herschel Savage, for people who have problems with infidelity. The four women in the group, Devinn Lane, Sydnee Steele, Inari Vachs, and Bridgette Kerkove, all have different reasons to be there, as do the guys, namely Brad Armstrong, Joel Lawrence, and Eric Price. The movie looks at many of the views as well as showing the dirty deed itself.
Inari Vachs, who appears to suffer from the same compulsion for older rich men as Anna Nicole Smith, hooks up with Nick Manning and Kristal Summers, who looks perhaps the best Iíve ever seen her, after finding them in a personal ad. The girls start off working each other over while Nick watches and plays with each of them. After making sure theyíve warmed each other up, the girls free Nickís cock. Nick fucks each girl in one position before sending his spunk onto each of their faces. Itís a hot scene that has great chemistry. Everybody seems to be really into everybody else, which is what separates a good group scene from a great one.
Sydnee Steele takes her love of music, or maybe just musicians a little further than most in the next scene. She takes on a band consisting of Mark Davis, Cheyne Collins, and Jason McCain. She sucks each guyís cock before rising Markís cock and sucking off Cheyne and Jason. Sydnee moves on to let Mark and Cheyne fuck her while continuing to suck cock, and leaving Jason to stroke himself and play guitar a little. Jason comes in at the end and fucks Sydnee before each of the guys gives Sydnee a nice face full of goo. Itís a pretty hot scene that works mostly due to Sydneeís enthusiasm. I often wondered what happened to the third guy through much of the scene, but was drawn back in by Sydneeís obvious enjoyment of the scene.
Man hating Devinn Lane goes after married women to show them that they donít really need men. She tells the story about nailing Nikita Denise, which if I was in her situation, is a story Iíd be telling too. Devinn starts out licking and fingering Nikitaís ass, breaking only to let Nikita taste her fingers. Nikita returns the favor by tonguing Devinnís pussy and ass before taking her upstairs to a ready bubble bath. They start out their bath naturally, but quickly get to the toys including Nikita showing her disappearing ball trick. Devinn also breaks out a strap on to fuck Nikitaís ass. It comes to a pretty good close, but feels like another few seconds would have made things feel all the way done. Itís an extremely hot scene that has amazing chemistry. Devinn and Nikita are both amazing performers, and itís great to see their scene to well balanced, as well as so hot.
Brad Armstrong sets Sydnee Steeleís therapy back with a bathroom fuck during their therapy break. Brad starts out playing with Sydnee underneath her clothes before she drops down to suck his cock and balls. Bradís cock seems to fit perfectly in her mouth, and she barely even uses any hands on it as she sucks him. She works him over orally until he gives her a mouth full of creamy goodness. Itís a very hot oral scene with Sydnee showing the same great enthusiasm as she did earlier in the feature. With scenes like this, itís no wonder Wicked offered Sydnee a contract!
Bridgette Kerkove takes her turn next, telling her tale of infidelity as well as that of a recovering alcoholic. Although she used to be quite attractive, sheís now had so many plastic surgeries that I could barely recognize her when she first took the screen, and I thought she looked almost reptilian. She falls off the wagon and onto Lee Stoneís crooked cock, which she almost immediately sucks. She lets him lick her smoothly shaven slit before he fucks her pussy in most of the common positions. Since itís Bridgette, they finish things up with anal before she takes a good pop in the mouth. Itís a pretty good scene, although I had trouble getting into it. Bridgette does a very good job through her acting portions, but sheís so physically deformed now that I had a hard time watching her fuck.
Herschel Savage shares with the group next, telling them how heíd pay restaurants to close down so he could bang hookers like Tina Cheri, who looks much better than normal here. They exchange oral favors before Tina takes Herschelís schlong in her snatch in most of the positions. He finishes things up blowing on her face, and of course her tits since theyíre awfully hard to miss. Itís a good scene with some decent chemistry. Herschel seems to be just kind of there, but Tina puts some nice effort into the scene.
Joel Lawrence escapes to a rooftop with blonde Amber Michaels for a little hanky panky. Amber goes from sucking Joelís dong to riding it reverse cowgirl style. She also lets Joel nail her from behind before he hoses her down with his guy goo. Itís a very warm scene thatís a little on the short side and also seems to be held back a little by having a few artistic shots. Itís an outdoor scene, which also has a tendency to limit things, which they are here.
Finally, Eric Price talks about how his nose got him in trouble. No, he didnít go up sniffing women to see how fresh they were, he just finds himself not able to control himself around women wearing nice perfume. His favorite scent just happens to be Inari Vachsí favorite also, which leads into a bit of office romance. They exchange oral arguments, with Inari showing just why sheís known for giving some of the best blowjobs in the business. They continue through missionary, cowgirl, and doggie around the office before Inari takes a nice facial to end things. Itís a very hot scene and a great one to end the feature with. It has excellent chemistry and energy and moves at a nice pace from the beginning to the end. Inari looks absolutely gorgeous, and keeps her great glasses on throughout the entire scene.
Infidelity is a different, and well done porno. It acknowledges the cheating that occurs in every adult film, and makes it the focus of the entire feature. There isnít much to the plot sequences, but they bring out some nice personality in each of the characters so that every person seems unique rather than just having them be a bunch of fuck monkeys. The sex is also nicely done with no one person really standing out above the rest. The closest person to standing out is Inari Vachs, mostly because sheís the only person in the cast with two full sex scenes. Throughout the entire movie Inari shows her talent and both acting and sex, and once again amazes me that she hasnít been signed to a contract by a studio. Infidelity is a very nicely done feature that should please most anybody interested in it.
Extras: Both the production and the behind the scenes photo galleries look very nice and mix full screen photos and snapshots. The production gallery lasts a bit over three and a half minutes and the behind the scenes gallery lasts two minutes. Star galleries are also included for Devinn Lane, Amber Michaels, Bridgette Kerkove, Inari Vachs, Krystal Summers, Nikita Denise, Sydnee Steele, and Tina Cheri. Each gallery lasts about two minutes and includes photos just from this feature.
Many of Wickedís other standard extras are also here. Audio bios are included for Devinn Lane, Amber Michaels, Bridgette Kerkove, Inari Vachs, Krystal Summers, Nikita Denise, Sydnee Steele, Tina Cheri, Brad Armstrong, Herschel Savage, Joel Lawrence, and Mark Davis. Not surprisingly, Wicked has put some nice effort into their audio bios, and have created them to fit the overall menu design. They include a fair amount of personal information, a few stills of the star, a list of some of the starís Wicked credits, and a link to the starís scene. Trailers are included for The Kissing Game, Hell on Heels, Flashpoint, Double Feature!, The Bride of Double Feature, Dream Quest, Knockout, Pornogothic, Satyr, Sex Safari, Vengeance, and Working Girl. As usual, thereís also the listing of AVN & Wicked DVD winners and nominations, the Wicked Casino, Wicked Web, promotional materials, company profile, and a commercial for the Free Speech Coalition. Devinn Lane gives a two minute interview where she talks about her upcoming (at the time) trip to Paris including learning French and what she plans to do there.
Brad Armstrong and Devinn Lane team up to give a full length audio commentary. As usual, Devinn and Brad have great chemistry together. They talk a fair amount about the making of the feature, but not quite as much as normal. Instead Brad and Devinn just banter back and forth, with Devinn showing her great gift for dirty talk throughout many of the scenes. Her sequence through her scene with Nikita Denise is worth at least the rental price, and should make for plenty of full Kleenex. Itís a decent commentary thatís very worth listening to for anybody who wants to hear some dirty talk or just get to know Devinn and Brad a little better than what you see in the movies.
Finally, thereís All Access: The Making of Infidelity, which lasts about eighteen and a half minutes. As usual, each of the stars is identified as they take the screen, which is a really great touch. Almost all of them give a short interview for Red Ezra, whoís now one of the biggest rising stars in the directing world. Thereís also plenty of screen time for Brad Armstrong, who both explains what heís trying to do and works with the cast. Of course, thereís also a bit of screwing around on the set, which gives the featurette a nice touch of humanity as well as fun. Basically, itís your typical Wicked behind the scenes featurette, which is always a good thing.
Themes: Straight, group, lesbian, rimming (female > female and male > female), toys, anal, and oral
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Most of Wickedís releases can be found online for between $22 and $30 with quite a few stores offering them for around $25. This oneís worth the money. Both the sex and non-sex scenes are very nicely done and very well balanced. The transfer is very good, but there are a couple very minor problems that Wicked more than makes up for by packing the DVD with extras.
Note to Wicked: As usual, you did a very nice job here. It was great to see you have Red Ezra behind the camera for the behind the scenes.
