During the opening credits of Jessica Drake Is Wicked, Drake delivers a voice-over that informs viewers that sexuality and sex are essential to her life, as important as air. And now, she explains, in this DVD, she plans to explore her desires, and see where it takes her.
The speech is precursor to five all-sex scenes, each with a distinct look, theme and fantasy. With this release, Jessica Drake pushes her boundaries, as well as the boundaries of Wicked Pictures and her fans.
The DVD kicks off with a boy/girl scene that pairs Drake with Ryan Driller in a sexual interpretation of Adam and Eve. The tale begins with Jessica accepting an apple from a snake (yes, a real, live snake) and taking a bite. It’s then, against a lush tropical backdrop complete with waterfall, Driller appears, and the the pair performs oral on one another before engaging in a sensual lovemaking session that is a hallmark of Wicked Pictures. The scene is beautiful to look at, and serves as an appetizer for the tantalizing delights to come.
From there, Drake is joined by Angela White, Anikka Albrite, Abella Danger, Vicki Chase and Brandy Aniston for a circus-themed orgy. Dressed in costumes and using props that really fit their individual personalities (Danger is a wild cat, Chase is a sword swallower, etc.), the women kiss and fondle in various pairs, performing oral and exploring each others’ holes with fingers and tongues before they come together with some toys and strap-ons, all with Jessica at center stage.
Scene three is a blowbang, with Dirk Huge, Isiah Maxwell, Rob Piper and Ricky Johnson posing as members of Jessica’s business team. After performing well on a major deal, Drake rewards the men with her mouth and hands. She crawls across the conference room table, wearing a business suit jacket, dress shirt, tight pleather pants and high heels. Drake takes turns lavishing attention on each of the men, as they all remain seated, stroking themselves and her when she’s near. Eventually, she makes her way to the floor in front of the table, and stays on her knees as the men gather around her. She sucks, licks and strokes all of them until they eventually unload onto her face and into her mouth.
The fourth scene, titled “Detention,” finds Jessica joined by some of the top tattooed performers in the business: Anna Bell Peaks, Sarah Jessie, Lily Lane, Small Hands and Will Havoc. She plays the teacher of the students in detention, and with a hard-rocking soundtrack adding to the tension and drive, she can't help but join in when the naughty students start making out. Peaks, who has made a big splash in a short amount of time, almost looks as if she could steal the scene away from Drake, but the star of the showcase is not about to be outdone, and gets the attention back on her by getting d.p.’d by Havoc and Small Hands.
As the intensity and action build from scene to scene, it all culminates with the finale “Beauty.” In what has become the most talked-about scene from the title, Drake partners with award-winning transsexual performers Aubrey Kate, Venus Lux and Domino Presley. Each of the women is slammed out in black outfits that blend punk and high fashion. Jessica starts by performing oral on each of the women, and then takes a step further by eating their asses before they take turns fucking her as the others pleasure one another in the background.
While Drake’s performances and scene partners are all intriguing and solid—if a bit controversial for some of her long-time fans—there is not a weak scene in the bunch. And while Jessica Drake Is Wicked sees the contract star pushing her own boundaries and limits, the DVD is sort of a return to his roots for director Brad Armstrong. His influence in everything from set design to costumes to camera angles is reminiscent of his earlier directing days of all-sex movies. It’s apparent he knows how to get some of the best performances out of Drake, and he knows when to sit back and let her guide the action and enjoy the carnal pleasures her scene partners have to offer.
The diversity of the content might make it tough to decide where to stock this release (though “showcase” and “all-sex” are the most logical choices), but it’s sure to please a much wider audience than many other DVDs available today. It will be interesting to see how Jessica Drake Is Wicked influences future releases from some of today’s biggest stars.
