The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Penthouse has been putting out some very nice couples releases. I'm looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: It left me wanting more in virtually every way.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the stars
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for a feature that feels like it's living up to its potential.
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is also nicely done, starting with an anamorphic widescreen presentation. There's nice care put into the lighting along with just a touch of grain. This is a nice looking and sounding release.
Music: The music is sexy and nicely rests in the background in each scene.
Menus: The main menu blends a little minor animation with a few stills for an okay first impression. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the girl in it.
The FeatureMarcus London is a race car driver addicted to danger. Whether it's banging a buddy's woman right after getting married or banging Randy's wife when Randy's about to sponsor his car, Marcus just can't keep it in his pants. Randy likes that about him, and sets out to test him when Marcus says that he loves his wife and doesn't know why he can't stop cheating.
|Scene 1 – Monique Alexander and Marcus London|
When her hubby is late getting home to meet with his driver Marcus, dirty blonde Monique puts the moves on Marcus. He moves in to kiss and grope her, and helps her strip down as they go. Marcus eagerly eats Monique's twat before standing up so she can suck his cock in return. Monique mixes in plenty of throat and stroking as she sucks Marcus, along with plenty of smiles. She rides him cowgirl style before laying back so he can fuck her missionary style. Finally, Marcus pulls out and pops on Monique's stomach.
This is a pretty good scene. There's pretty good chemistry and energy between Marcus and Monique, and Monique adds in some nice vocals. The action is also nicely captured, but I can't help but confess to being a little distracted by Monique's excessive ink. Last I remembered Monique was quite the classy looking broad, and here she looked more trashy than anything. The action is nice here, but Monique's ink and style definitely held the scene back a bit for me.
|Scene 2 – Jessica Lynn and Dane Cross|
When busty bottle blonde Jessica's man Dane comes home right after she finishes with Marcus, he has to hide under the bed as Jessica covers up for them by taking Dane on right away. Dane quickly strips down for Jessica to suck his cock before she rides it reverse cowgirl style. She also lets him spoon her and fuck her bow and arrow style before rolling around for a bit of missionary work. Finally, Jessica sucks Dane to a pop in her mouth that she drools back onto his cock.
This is a pretty good scene. Jessica looks hot and puts out some nice energy and vocals. Dane is a bit tame, but delivers a hard cock and a decent pop. The action is nicely captured, and the flashes to Marcus hiding under the bed gives it an extra little kick. This is another good scene.
|Scene 3 – Alanah Rae and Randy Spears, Kiera King and Marcus London|
Randy tells Marcus about a powerful sex club he belongs to before bringing Marcus with one night. They're each given a mask upon arrival and soon after Randy settles upon busty brunette Alanah. He sucks her big tits and plays with her pussy before letting Alanah help him out of his pants to suck his cock. She gets up to ride him cowgirl style before having him spoon her, and then lays back for a bit of missionary work. Finally, Randy pops on Alanah's stomach.
As Randy gets it on with Alanah, Marcus and Kiera watch and play with each other a little. Marcus sucks her tits and rubs her pussy before ripping open her stockings to eat and finger it. Kiera sucks his cock in return before riding it cowgirl style, and then lets him fuck her missionary style. Soon after Randy pops, Marcus gives Kiera a little extra missionary style and then rolls her over for some doggie fucking. Finally he lets go with a load over her ass.
This is an above average scene. There's some nice twists to the plot here as well as some decent sex. Both couples get it on pretty well, but I was a little disappointed that for an exotic sex club the two couples never played with each other more than just watching each other a little. The scene also seemed a little too drawn out with much of the action being kind of a follow the leader with Marcus doing to Kiera what Randy just did to Alanah. This isn't a bad scene, but it did feel like it had the potential to deliver much more than it did.
|Scene 4 – Aiden Starr and Charles Dera|
Aiden starts out in a black mask, corset, shoes, and stockings sucking Charles' cock as he lays back on a bed wearing a black mask of his own. He reaches around to play with her pussy as she sucks him, and eagerly sucks her titties when she takes a quick little breather. Charles moves around to lick, rub, and finger her pussy as Aiden bends over for him, as well as giving her ass a few slaps, and then licks her pussy a little more before fucking it missionary style when she lays back on the bed for him. Charles moves around to spoon Aiden as well as letting her get up for a reverse cowgirl ride before stroking him over her hand between his legs.
This is a pretty good scene, and easily one of the best in the movie. Aiden and Charles have nice chemistry and both put out some nice energy. There's also a nice pace to the scene and it's captured well. That said, I had a hard time getting into most of the movie, and think I could have enjoyed this scene a bit more if I had gotten into the rest of the movie better.
Sex Driven is a disappointing feature. The plot did nothing for me, and with the movie only lasting an hour and a half often left me wondering why there wasn't another scene and a little more plot to make the movie seem a bit more complete. Jessica Lynn might have had the best scene here, but Aiden Starr and Monique Alexander also did a nice job in their scenes. The group scene with Kiera Kind and Jayden Cole, however, came out as the weakest for me. Sex Driven has some decent sex and some nice ideas to build a feature around, but they never come together as well as they feel like they might have.

|Bonus Scene – Nikki Anne, Nicole Ray, and Evan Stone|
The bonus scene comes from Uncontrollable. Bottle blonde Nicole has been curious about sex with multiple partners, so she invites Nikki and Evan, a couple she's known since college, over to experiment. When she confesses that she's had a crush on both of them for years but was afraid to act on it, Nikki lets her know she has nothing to fear and starts to kiss her with Evan letting them know how much he likes the direction the evening's going in. Nicole climbs onto Nikki's lap as they kiss, and soon after is dropping her top for a little ice play thanks to one of the cubes from Evan's drink. Nicole gets in the middle to suck Evan as Nikki eats her pussy, and soon has Evan helping on her pussy as Nikki helps suck his cock. She stays in the middle to eat Nikki as Evan fucks her from behind before helping out as Evan gives it to Nikki reverse cowgirl and doggie style. Evan stacks them up so he can work between them from behind as well as fucking Nicole bow and arrow and Nikki missionary style. Finally, Evan lets Nicole have a nice facial and Nicole gives it a quick lick.
This is a very nice group scene. The chemistry between the girls is great, and Evan looks like he's feeling like the luckiest guy in the world while fitting right in with them. There's a nice balance between the girls and the scene moves along at a very nice pace with plenty of well captured action. This is a great group scene that worked extremely well for me.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Penthouse DVDs can be found online for between about $17 and $25 with several stores offering them for around $20. Rent this one before you buy it. The sex isn't bad, but there's also absolutely nothing special about any part of the movie with the entire thing coming together to disappoint me slightly. The technical aspects are nicely done and there is a touch of effort put into the extras with a good bonus scene, but neither are amazing enough to make me care that much about this DVD.
Note to Penthouse: There were a couple okay ideas here, but at ninety minutes there should have been time to make the movie seem a little more substantial and actually amount to something worth caring about.
