The Abridged Version: Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. It’s the story about the porn starlet who toils away in relative obscurity as a girl/girl only performer for years because her boyfriend is uncomfortable with her doing boy/girl scenes. Eventually, she breaks up with the guy and tackles boy/girl porn as if she had just graduated from an all-girl private school. There’s nothing unique about that story. It happens all the time yet it continues to excite the hell out of us porn lovers. The latest girl to fall prey to this cliche is the exquisite Nikki Lorren. The rest of her story has yet to be written but the boy/girl portion begins here. And that’s really the only thing going on in Sin City’s Barely 18 #11. There are 5 scenes with barely-there set-ups and relatively light sex, meaning no anal or anything real extreme. Not to completely minimalize it, but this is just another decent installment in an impressively improving series. The girls are attractive and even have similar body types, fit and thin with rather small, natural breasts. For some it might all seem a bit too formulaic, as director Christian Knight sticks to the stereotypical 3-position and pop sequencing one to many times. However, it is still very well done and the main event, Nikki’s first boy/girl, among the other 4 undercards is a definite knockout.

Scene 1: Heather Gables (blonde, slim, cute, resembles Ashlee Simpson a tad bit) w/Van Damage (18 minutes)

Van Damage is a music producer of sort. Wearing headphones, he is sitting at a mixing board and working on a song. The adorably cute blonde Heather Gables, who somewhat resembles pop star/celebutante Ashlee Simpson, is his new intern and she barges in to introduce herself. Wearing an ultra short jean skirt and simple white blouse, certain areas of her body, notably her flat chest, attract Van’s gaze. Pretty much immediately he makes sure that she is at least 18. Once that’s cleared up, he starts feeling her up and showing her what he says all interns who want to be a part of the music scene have to do. After a fading resistance, she gives in completely. She bends down in front of him and does quite a number on his cock. 18-year-old girls shouldn’t be able to deep throat a guy with the utter ease that she displays. A wide shot shows her cute pink panties peeking out from underneath her skirt. However, we then cut to her completely naked and positioned in standing doggy. Van rims her tight asshole a bit before sticking her pussy with his dick. They soon switch to a somewhat uncomfortable looking missionary, with Heather draped across a stool as well as the edge of the mixing board. Being porn though, the premium is not on the comfort or genuine enjoyment of the performers but how good it looks on camera. That said, that didn't look to fun to me. Wisely, they switch to the ground for cowgirl. Whether due to the location or just Heather’s preference, these two never really get going. Instead of really pounding her, Van pretty much just slowly and methodically thrusts in and out of her, going balls deep plenty. In the end, he drops a rather large load on her face.

Scene 2: Marie Luv (black, somewhat busty, great ass) w/Talon (18 minutes)

Talon is handy man hired by Marie to fix the pipes under her sink. With his butt crack peeking out of the top of his jeans in comedic fashion, he is crouched down and working on the problem. However, she is nagging him and airing her suspicions that he is only going so slowly because he is getting paid by the hour. Oddly, he stands up, looks at her, and suddenly seems to notice how hot her body is in a pink top and cheek hugging pair of short shorts. This time, the girl is the aggressor. She pretty much tears his jeans off, proclaiming that “this 18-year-old is going to show you what a real job looks like.” And to my surprise this cute girl really does give one hell of a blowjob. Head bob after head bob she finds her mouth wrapped around the base of his dick. He takes off her panties and for a moment the camera lingers on a static shot of her magnificent booty. Far too quickly, she turns around so that Talon can eat her out. The two of them sufficiently worked up, they kick it off in reverse cowgirl. Marie seems in constant search of just the right position here, as she frequently moves her legs here or there or her back here or there in an effort to allow him to just hit that right spot. Not quite finding what she’s looking for, they move to cowgirl where here booty shakes in all its glory. She is thrusting back on him hard enough that you can see the sweat glistening off her forehead. They cap it off with standing doggy and a big facial. It’s one of the bigger loads I’ve ever seen Talon shoot. These two seemed to have good chemistry together.

Scene 3: Lisa Marie (slim, cute face, blonde w/various highlights) w/Lee Stone (17 minutes)

Continuing with the men of the house call industry, Lee Stone plays a pool guy. Lisa looks especially hot in a white bikini and black sunglasses, as she reads by the pool and catches quick glimpses of Stone's muscular torso. In fact, with her newly streaked hairstyle she reminds me quite a bit of Alyssa Love. Shirtless, Lee approaches her and asks for his check so he can be on his way. Again, the girl makes the first move here as she uses “go swimming with me” as a euphemism for “fuck me.” Once he finds out that she is indeed 18 he no longer resists her efforts to unbuckle his jeans and suck his cock. There is a little more length there than she expected but she still gets an “A” for effort. Magically, we pull out of close-up to a wide shot and Lisa, who was still wearing her bikini when she started blowing Lee, is now only wearing her clear pair of F-me pumps. Stone picks her up for his somewhat signature standing 69. Looking a tad bit lightheaded from being held upside down, Lisa manages to sit down on his dick for cowgirl. She may have started this but he is the one who finishes it. He’s pretty much in control for the rest of the scene, lifting her up and down on his dick in cowgirl and reverse cowgirl and pounding her fairly hard in doggy. He even shows off his muscles again for a very sexy looking and well-filmed standing cowgirl position. Finally, he drops an average load on her chin and mouth. This is the best scene thus far but it would have been far better had Lisa showed a bit more energy.

Scene 4: Nikki Lorren (cover girl) w/Sascha (19 minutes)

In the tape’s dumbest set-up, Nikki is scrubbing the hot tub in Sascha’s mansion. Wearing tight fitting cut off jean shorts and a sexy midriff exposing pink blouse, she is a vision of stunning beauty. It turns out that Sascha’s usual cleaning lady is sick and has sent her daughter, Nikki, to fill in for a day. After the pre-requisite “are you 18 or not?” discussion, Sascha pretty much just grabs her perfectly sculpted, voluptuous ass and lets his hands wander from there. She reciprocates and so they make out while slowly undressing each other. Once he eats her out, she wraps her lips around his cock, provides sufficient amounts of saliva to it, and then proceeds to bob her head up and down on the shaft. Occasionally, she comes up for air and/or to apply more saliva to the cock. This, my friends, is called a blowjob and it is the first one Nikki Lorren has ever given on camera. As it turns out, she has no bottomless throat or any masterful oral skills, but it is still a fun blowjob to watch. Unfortunately, we are denied any “first penetration” shot as we just quick-cut to her all ready getting fucked in doggy. Sascha wastes no time here and goes at it pretty hard, even pulling her hair with one of his hands. Her ass actually looks far better in this position than I ever thought it would. Things shall not entirely proceed according to Sascha’s every whim though. Nikki takes over in reverse cowgirl and grinds his cock nicely. It is missionary, though, that literally rubs her the right way, with him pounding her fairly hard into a convincingly authentic sounding orgasm. This enjoyable initiation ends with Sascha exploding like a geyser over Nikki’s face and chest. We are not talking Peter North caliber load, but this is still one hell of a facial for a girl to receive her first day on the job. With cum spread across her chest and more dripping from her chin, she looks as if she wants to fuck some more. A star is born.

Scene 5: Christie Lee (dirty blonde, slim, cute, Canadian) w/T.J. Cox (15 minutes)

This is the same exact set-up as Lisa Marie’s scene, with the only alteration being that T.J. Cox is a gardener and not a pool guy. Tanning on a beach blanket in the grass, Christie asks T.J. what he knows about gardening. They talk about tulips and about how Christie is 18. So, T.J. sucks on her nipples and she sucks on his cock. It’s rather clear how a conversation about gardening leads to sex. When I first saw Christie she was absolutely insatiable, but as of late she has been rather lackluster, looking as if she might be a tad tired or burnt out. With her now completely naked, T.J. starts fucking her in missionary. He is now magically wearing a condom. Christie is by no means faking it or bored with the sex, but it is all rather low on the energy scale. Then a strange thing happens. As the sex progresses through doggy and mish and T.J. consistently power fucks her, I start seeing traces of the old Christie I knew and lusted after. But the occasional moments of raw, animal lust are few and do not save a forgettable scene that ends with a tired “cum on her chest, run away because her parents are home” routine. This is pretty easily the weakest scene of the bunch, though I do want to say that I like the fact that Sin City was not afraid to release a scene where a guy actually wears a condom.

The DVD:As would be expected, the background pictures for the majority of the menus feature Nikki Lorren. All of the interviews on the DVD seem to be a lot longer than they were in the previous volumes.

Biographies-Brief biographies of each performer, male and female. Each one ranges from 2 to 4 sentences in length. T.J. Cox is an ex-marine.
Interviews
Christie Lee (10m30s)- Been in the biz for two years. Condom decision a recent development. From Canada. Into very nasty and rough sex, even likes fucking guys up the ass with a strap-on. Will not do interracial and it is strictly a business decision. Finds a lot of the IR lines (“Slap that White Ho!”) degrading for the women and the men. Comes off rather intelligent.
Heather Gables (7m20s)- Not booked for this shoot. Actually filling in for a girl who no-showed. As such, this is her second shoot of the day. Did first scene after she begged her landlord, who had connections, to get her into porn. Loves anal sex. Worried that kids she babysat might find pictures of her on the Internet.
Lisa Marie (7m00s)- 21-years-old [covers her mouth as if worried that she wasn’t supposed to say her real age]. Used to work at a burger joint across the street from World Modeling. That’s how she got into the biz 2 years ago. Graduated from Catholic High School. Lost virginity at 18. Tells several jokes. Very funny girl. The type of girl I’d personally love to hang out with.
Marie Luv (4m35s)- 20 scenes so far. First scene was with Mandingo. Too big for her. Loved…loved…working with Mr. Marcus and Mark Davis. Working on having Mark Davis be her partner for her first anal scene. Not into girls and won’t do “gay for pay”.
Nikki Lorren (7m38s)- Been in biz for about 2 years. Only did girl/girl out of respect for boyfriend. She is the one who initiated their break-up and is glad to be free to fuck any guy she wants now. Did a boy/girl photoshoot for Earl Miller the day before this shoot. Does not like anal at all and pledges to never do it. She seems very sweet and just the way she speaks exudes sex at times, but she also comes off as rather ditzy. Personality reminded me of Jessica Simpson quite a bit.
Behind the Scenes (4m20)-Very scattershot behind the scenes featurette. Lots of Christie Lee goofing around and not nearly as much focus on Nikki’s scene as you would probably expect. All 5 scenes are covered somewhat.
Popshots (3m50s)-Montage of the money shots.
Photo Gallery-Massive gallery, split into three types: BTS, Glamour, and Hard.

Final Thought: The “first” anything for a porn starlet can sometimes be a dubious distinction as it is not until their “third” and “fourth” times that they shed the deer in headlights look. That is not true of Nikki. If the box cover and DVD extras didn’t heavily hype the fact that this was her first boy/girl you would have no clue. She’s a natural at it. Perhaps she looks like such a natural because in the actual scene the director and editor make no effort to highlight the fact that this is her “first” time. In future installments though, I do hope that Christian Knight and company re-think the storylines they use. To be honest, the set-ups in this volume are so clichéd and tired and worthless that I would almost recommend dropping them completely if they do not intend to try and be more original with it next time. This doesn’t have to be Oscar caliber stuff but it should have more effort behind it than was given to the 5 scenes here.

Rent it or Buy It: RENT IT. If you are a fan of Nikki’s, this is an obvious must-Have. Otherwise, it is a decent rental but not worth buying.

About the Author: A current college student, Kelly began his infatuation with pornography with the likes of late night Skinimax before graduating to hardcore. As such, sometimes storylines go a long way toward his enjoyment while sometimes he just wants to see some hard sex. In either avenue though, girl/girl bores him to tears. He used to operate a fan site dedicated to Taylor St. Claire, who is still to this day his favorite porn star. Right behind her at #2 and #3 in his top 3 girls of all time are Avy Scott and Jennifer Luv. Other favorites include busty women like Zora Banks, Cherry Mirage, Haley Paige, and Devinn Lane and slimmer women like Alyssa Love, Stephanie Swift, August Night, and Kelly Kline. He avoids Max Hardcore, Ed Powers, Vivid, compilations, and girls with bad implants as much as possible. On the other hand, he eagerly looks forward to releases from Evil Angel, Devils Film, New Sensations/Digital Sin, and Platinum X. He generally favors anal scenes and DP scenes with big facials, but is too timid for gangbangs and any such other extremities. His favorite directors are Jonni Darkko, Mike John, Joey Silvera, Tom Byron, and Jules Jordan. His favorite porn films of all time include The Fashionistas (2003), Whack Attack 9 (2001), Nice Rack 6 (2000), Service Animals 7 (2002), and The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women 1 (2000). When reading his "Rent it or Buy It" advice, take into consideration the fact that he almost never buys pornography. He is a habitual renter.
