Hi friends, expectations were set high for Naughty America’s New Year’s Eve release, fidelio.
And, shortly I’ll give my thoughts about this ambitious, new effort.
So, last year the public voting resulted in The 2015 VR Porn Movie Awards. Oh, it was a gala event!
And, I ain’t bragging, but honestly, man… I was pretty pleased with how that turned out.
Why was I pleased with it?
Because it was very democratic.
That’s to say: it combined many different views and opinion, which gave voice to an actual VR porn community.
Is there an actual VR porn community?
I don’t know, man. There are people who discuss these movies online. I don’t think there’s like a clubhouse with a swimming pool or anything!
So, last year the poll got pinned. That helped a lot. Update: I see the 2016 one just got pinned. Thank you! Excellent!
Those good folks have been helpful. And, I think we’ve reciprocated too.
The more participation the poll gets, the more representative the final results.
Man, that 2015 award ceremony was the type of heavenly, democratic stuff a fella can sink his Fleshlight into!
Still not funny…
Anyway, that 2015 VR Porn Movie Awards page has received over 100,000 views. So, participating in the 2016 FindVRPorn Movie Awards is a way for your opinion to be heard…
If the voting/commenting doesn’t get more participation, this is how the awards page will be structured:
First: the People’s Choices will be discussed. Then, I’ll weigh in more heavily with my opinion than I did last year.
By the way, last year it was CzechVR’s Katy Rose and her carrot which was my personal first place pick.
Interesting to note I’m also leaning very heavily towards another solo effort for my fave of 2016. So, as I often repeat: there just ain’t no way to completely remove preference/bias from reviewing anything…
Anyway… Happy 2017, man! And, thank you fellas and gals for visiting here and everything else… Have a fidelio invitation (pictured below):
So, today we’ll consider Karla Kush, Kendall Kayden, Mia Malkova, Sydney Cole and Charles Dera in this orgyistic sexcapade. Yep, it’s time to enter the fidelio mansion (pictured below):
And, there’s some good stuff waiting for you at this fidelio sexcapade:
So, fidelio, as mentioned, is Naughty America’s New Year’s Eve release. And, it was clear that NA wanted something extra-special to finish the year.
Now, to be fair to Naughty America…and, I ain’t trying to piss anybody off here… but, to be honest and fair to Naughty America: the truth is they often enter early and big in the porn world. What do I mean by that?
Well, they appeared in the VR porn game damn early: while other major companies hesitantly crunched numerals about the whole undertaking.
On the level, the Naughty boys didn’t succumb to the type of cautious and speculative boardroom chats that are so completely focused on low-risk profit margins.
They dove weenie first into the 3D deep end with glorious abandon.
And, at that moment, the profitability of the whole undertaking wasn’t nearly as certain as it is presently.
And, the truth is… there’s a small group of pioneer VR porn studios: Naughty, VRP, BaDoink, Czech, Virtual Taboo, Holo… you guys are historical, man!
Additionally, lately we’ve been seeing some more ambitious VR porn efforts—with a feature-films sort of feel—getting released: (hint, I’m looking at you Team Wankz).
And, I think this is both a good thing and inevitable.
But, it’s interesting to remember that the first truly ambitious VR porn release was actually Naughty America’s five part miniseries, Randy’s Roadstop.
Now, I ain’t trying to be an ass-kisser here… and, I ain’t trying to be a troublemaker here; I try to tell it straight, and these days it kind of feels like these things have been somewhat overlooked.
And, I also think it’s fair to say the Naughty boys were also the first going VR porn niche: Real Teens (updates presently paused).
And, as a sidenote, there’s also their recently launched Big Tits in VR.
Granted, this is all a tangent, but… tangents are fun, man! They can distract you from how bad your life sucks! And, big tits are distracting too. I didn’t design the universe, man!
And, to be fair, the Czech boys were one of the early (and very few) studios to also go niche early: with their CzechVR Fetish and Casting.
But, to be truly fair, I must mention that the Holo boys and gals were throwing down some early niche stuff too… I can’t help it… I keep remembering stuff as I’m typing here, man!
Prior to this release, some intriguing graphics appeared online that piqued both anticipation and expectation. Here’s a gigantic-sized example:
Man, if there’s one thing I love it’s a bunch of beautiful women wearing tight, bikini bottoms. Just being honest, man!
Let’s do this thing…

Reviewed using: Gear VR + Galaxy S7
Software used: Deo VR and Milk VR
1. … are fans of Karla Kush, Kendall Kayden, Mia Malkova, Sydney Cole and Charles Dera… basically, if you like young, blonde porn gal (and, who the hell doesn’t!), this is for you…
2. … are looking for a VR with a Eyes Wide Shut fantasy involving masks, costumes, etc.
3. … are looking for a well-shot, competent VR porn with professional production values…
4. … are looking for some clothed teasing
5. … are looking for a group sex/orgy type of VR/fivesome VR porn
6. … are looking for multiple female face close-ups in the same VR frame: this was rather well done, imo… and, probably—for me—the most special aspect of this outing…
Factors that can change a VR porn experience from person to person:
1. VR equipment used: (eg. Oculus, Gear VR, Vive, Cardboard, Homido, etc.)
2. Video software used: (eg. Milk VR, VR Player Pro, Deo VR, Whirligig, MaxVR, etc.)
3. Facial structures: (in particular, Interpupillary distance aka IPD)
4. Natural preferences: this can be overlooked. You see, it’s possible two people are seeing the same scale, but one simply prefers it more than the other…
5. The woman’s size: Although obvious, this gets overlooked sometimes. Some women are simply taller than others, and this, of course, affects the virtual experience!
Official Movie Synopsis:
Let’s see how the Naughty America boys describe fidelio:
As you are whisked away by the host and mistress for the evening (Mia Malkova), you are taken on a tour through the mansion, making stops at several of the many sex rooms: to witness lust-filled acts taking place with masked patrons.
Your tour ends in the grand room where three masked beauties are waiting to fuck your brains out while you are surrounded by masked couples sucking, fucking, and licking each other in the background.
Mia, of course, will be joining you as well, making this the ultimate fivesome.
Okay, so that fidelio synopsis does a pretty damn good job of sketching out the narrative/camera sequences of the movie.
These reviews are based upon three main factors:
2. The scaling: do things look correct and proportional? Generally, the viewer wants a real-life feel.
3. Positioning: of the women and cameras. Close-ups are much-desired. It’s also great to get some variety of sexual positions. Eye contact is also considered critically important by most.
Now, there are other factors: many of which mainly get mentioned when there’s a problem with them.
In this particular review, we can see that Naughty America VR is aiming for a special, New Year’s Eve release. Therefore, it must be evaluated accordingly.
For example, a movie like this deserves special praise for the well-conceived costumes and setting used.
More Thoughts About fidelio
Interestingly, this ambitious fidelio release is pretty simple to discuss.
The best part of it—for me—was they managed to get multiple women (sometimes faces and other times entirely) in the same frame: while maintaining close proximity and a realistic scale. That, for me, was worth the admission price alone.
And, it’s biggest shortcoming—again, in my opinion—is that optically the lighting and color could have been better. I ain’t saying the optics were a dealbreaker. But, it’s my job to honestly express strengths and weaknesses as I see them.
So, the standout sections, without a doubt, were the segments that pushed as many women as close to the camera as possible…
And, to Naughty’s credit, there was much camera time with multiple women close to the lens. I mean… that’s what it’s all about.
And, on the level, VR porn fans will love this! Fans of beautiful, young blonde women will love it. I mean… how couldn’t you?
Other Optics: the scaling felt pretty good. To my eyes, there were parts where things felt a tad narrow. And, as distance increases, the clarity decreases: as is the case with all studios.
But, Naughty did a fine job of pulling a bunch of the gal’s faces into the sweet spot distance: and, for me, no upper frame distortion whatsoever. That’s important to note, because in some NA VRs this year—a while ago—I was experiencing some upper frame wonkiness. It appears that is well resolved these days.
As mentioned, I felt the lighting could have been brighter: and, in turn, that would have probably improved the color. Now, I ain’t trying to pretend I got Stevie Spielberg understanding of cinematography, man.
And, an argument could probably be made that the lighting/color (somewhat muted effect) enhanced and complemented the movie’s fantasy theme.
You see, we’re dealing with a mansion orgy featuring masked women…not to mention that initially Mia—also masked—provides an intriguing and somewhat mysterious tour of various sex rooms… so, there is a type of fantasy/mood being projected.
And, one might argue that given this murky, other-worldy environment: the more subdued lighting and color palette enhanced the emotional feel. That argument could be made.
For example, in a scary movie, you don’t expect the type of brightness and vivid hues that one sees during an episode of Full House or that corny sitcom where you’ve got your blue collar, rotund raconteur who’s somehow hitched to a tasty tart…
So, likewise in this type of fantasy, the visuals match the emotional tone.
Ultimately, though, I’d say that VR porn movies are—needless to say—porn movies. And, no matter how well-executed the narrative/setting: people are putting on headsets to get their horny on…
Now, fidelio was an ambitious and remarkable release. I mean that honestly…and, I want to be clear about that. This is damn horny stuff. I mean, after all…
…you put these particular four gals in front of high-quality cameras and… yea, how couldn’t it be horny?
And, those cute little coquettish looks and kissy faces salacious Sydney kept sending my way… She likes me, guys! I could see it…
Still not funny…
The movie delivered much of what I’m so often requesting: that’s to say, getting the camera close to the gal(s).
And, particularly horny was how the director frequently framed close-up shots incorporating multiple women. Keep doing it just like that please, sirs!
There was such a wealth of glorious cowgirling, kissing and multi-girl configurations it got a bit horny-dizzy.
Let’s look at a few more pictures:
It’s challenging to position multiple women close-up together while keeping the scaling and general optics correct: and not having one gal obscure the view of the other gals.
