Running Time: 88 min. (cover states 80 min., which is probably about right if you take away the preview for the next episode and recap from the previous episode)
Production Date: 1 / 10 / 2002
Director: Toni English
Cast: Nina Hartley, Keri Windsor, Lauren Montgomery, Dee, Chennin Blanc, Gwen Summers, T. J. Hart, Anthony Crane, Chris Cannon, Lee Stone, Tyce Bune, and T. J. Cummings as well as quite a few people in non-sex roles
Initial Expectations: Iíve really been impressed with this series and look forward to every new episode.
Initial Reaction: Itís pretty good, but not quite up to some of the previous episodes.
Who Should Watch It : Couples, anybody who values chemistry in their scenes, and anybody who likes a nice and realistic plot with their porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for harder fetish action such as whatís found in Privateís Pirate line
Audio /Video Quality: Thankfully, the audio problems that have plagued the first few episodes of Naked Hollywood seem to be disappearing. There are a few places where the audio is a little unbalanced, but for the most part itís very clear and nicely balanced. The video is much the same way. The lighting is very even with almost no shadows to plague the visibility. Thereís barely any grain and the pictureís normally clear right out to the edge.
Music: The music balance changes slightly throughout the feature. Sometimes itís a bit on the loud side, but normally itís well balanced with the rest of the audio. Surprisingly, there isnít music in every scene, or if so, it was so low in one scene that I couldnít hear it when deliberately listening for it.
Menus: The Naked Hollywood series is keeping the menus basically the same. Normally I donít like this, but as a series, it gives it a nice feeling of continuity and is another thing that holds them together. The main menu is nicely animated, and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a fairly artistic arrangement displaying small clips of each scene.
The Feature: This time around, the girls explore some of the darker side of things with fetish sex. They start at an underground sex club and let things go from their. Of course, all the girls have different ideas, with Nina Hartley being an open minded sex talk show host, Lauren Montgomery as a cautious and old fashioned lawyer, Dee as a bisexual artist, and Keri Windsor as a slutty interior decorator whoís open to trying anything at least once.
Chennin Blanc and a leather hooded Anthony Crane put on a show at a fetish sex club to start things off. Anthony quickly goes from kissing one set of lips to the other and then climbs onto her chest for a little tit-fucking and head. He gets onto his back so Chennin can have a little control in the blowjob as well, and lets her climb onto his cock to start fucking him. Chennin turns around so Anthony can fuck each of her holes, and finally takes his ball blast on her tongue with a great smile. Itís a pretty good scene, but felt a bit soft even for Adam & Eve. Iím sure this might be for the couples aspect of the series, but even there it felt a little soft.
After performing on stage, Dee heads back to her place with her gay best friend T. J. Cummins and her lesbian girlfriend Gwen Summers. They decide to continue trying something new and start the first gay-bi-lesbian threesome that I know of. Dee warms up T. J.ís cock while he and Gwen kiss, and then lets Gwen slide onto it. Dee gets her turn next, first with T. J. fucking her from behind while she occasionally licks Gwenís pussy. They kick things up a notch next by having T. J. fuck Dee missionary style while Gwen gets behind T. J. and fucks him with a strap-on. Thereís no doubt that heís taking it, and both T. J. and Gwen head up to Deeís face for the pop. Itís a well done scene that isnít completely comfortable. Dee seems fairly restrained and reluctant through much of the scene, which isnít all bad since she was originally against the idea of two of the people closest to her bumping uglies. That doesnít mean that she doesnít show any enjoyment, she just looks a little uncomfortable with much of the scene. On the plus side, Adam & Eve handle it very well, including Gwen fucking T. J., which feels very natural in the scene. Although it does have a few minor faults, the donít hold the scene back from being a really great scene.
Lauren Montgomery reduces herself to fucking attorney Chris Cannon next. This is nothing against Chris Cannon, but Iím sure that Iím not the only one to think of attorney sex as something close to bestiality. She slowly opens his pants to suck him and then hops on his cock cowgirl style. Chris flips her around so he can taste her bald beaver before fucking her doggie style. Chris ends things decorating Laurenís very nice tits and letting her suck out the last few drops. Itís a nice scene with good chemistry and a nice realistic pace. Iíve really been impressed with Lauren Montgomery throughout this series, and this scene did nothing to make me even think about changing this idea.
Nina Hartley gets down and dirty with grease monkey Tyce Bune in his garage. They start with some passionate kissing before Nina drops down to aggressively gobble his knob. She moves directly to a chair so Tyce can fuck her missionary style before she turns around to let him take her from behind and spank her. Nina finally ends things taking Tyceís ball butter on her neck. Itís an amazingly hot, down and dirty scene with great energy and chemistry. With performances like this, itís no wonder why Nina Hartley is still around the industry after this many years.
Finally, Keri Windsor, T. J. Hart, and Lee Stone get a little light dungeon action. Keri starts out getting her nipples flogged as sheís put on a cross, and after a little oral screwing around, ends up having Lee and T. J. pleasuring her slightly roughly. Lee gets his turn next before fucking T. J. from behind while Keri watches, talks dirty to him, and occasionally sucks his cock. Lee finally fucks T. J.ís ass while she lays back in a love swing before decorating her stomach and letting Keri help by sucking out the last few drops. Itís a pretty good scene, but the editing seemed to mess up the flow a bit. Things seemed to go from position to position as they should, but the timing seemed a bit off. People go from one side of the room to another in a split second and some positions and actions are only seen for a second or two before switching to another. Luckily the chemistry between the performers, and Keriís constant intensity, keeps things going despite the few flaws.
Naked Hollywood 5: Twisted is another decent addition to the series. It lacks a little bit compared to some of the earlier episodes, but I think my problems here might be due to enjoying a little harder fetish features. For the average couple whoís exploring something new, this may just be right up their alley. The cast balances things very well, and does a nice job of showing different reactions to different fetishes. Toni English also does a great job of mixing in some different fetishes, which makes this a worthwhile feature despite some of the problems I had with it. Naked Hollywood 5: Twisted is another good addition to this great series.
Extras: The photo gallery lasts about a minute and a third with about four seconds per good looking snapshot. Fairly basic bios are included for Nina Hartley, Dee, Lauren Montgomery, Keri Windsor, Gwen Summers, Chenin Blanc, Chris Cannon, and T. J. Hart. Trailers are included for The Fiesta, Caribbean Undercover / Sex Island: Behind the Scenes, and Emerald Rain. Of course, thereís also web links.
The main extra, however, is a bonus scene between Nikita Denise and Dale DaBone in a grocery store from The Real Thing. Dale kisses Nikitaís tits a little before she drops down to suck his cock while giving him some great eye contact. Nikita moves up onto the register counter for Dale to eat her pussy and then stays there so he can fuck her. She turns around for him to finish her off, and then takes a nice facial. Itís a very warm scene with poor camera work.
Themes: Straight, fetishwear, anal, inter-racial, group, lesbian, spanking, male anal insertion, toys, and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Overall: Currently most of the Naked Hollywood series can be found online for between $8 and $24 with a few stores offering it for around $15. This is a great price for what you get from this series. Thereís a decent plot as well as good sex which makes this a great movie for almost any couple. Thereís also some decent extras and a good transfer.
Note to Adam & Eve: Itís great to see you correcting some of the technical issues that were problematic earlier in this series.
