FAST! CHEAP! AND OUT OF CONTROL!
Sinema reviews by Skronker

“Gangbang Auditions” was a staple of my Mom’n’Pop porn era, which was – oh, say – about five years ago, back when I’d pay a couple of weekly trips to the video hutch down the corner and stock up on anything new and nasty, which then always meant titles from Anabolic, the Buttman-Rocco axis and lotsa Up ‘N’ Cummers/Dirty Deb volumes. Yeah, even some Max.

Diabolic, Anabolic’s parallel imprint, established “Auditions” as one of its signature lines: Perfect for viewers like me who wanted to like straight-up gang bangs but cared not for the parade of pud-pulling meat puppets idling about for the bangee to free up an input or two. One babe. Five cocks. Surely, this is as nature intended.

That was then, however, before the DVD era came to porn, before that handy little video hutch became a cel phone outlet, before
5-on-1 type scenes proliferated across Porn Valley like smuggled uranium from the former Soviet Bloc. These days, every studio frontloads its arsenal with highly radioactive multidude sperm missiles. And such scenes no longer mark the beginning of the end of a porn girl’s lifespan – a prelude to the curtain-closing gang bang marathon, guaranteed to jack up feature dancing fees or spice up show’n’tell at rehab group therapy sessions. Nope, they have now become an early rite-of-passage for any budding porn starlet, many of whom typically kick off their careers with a stirring group-fuck (quickly followed by several more, each given a slightly different spin, from black sticks-in-the-wicket to slop-faced semen slurpfest).

This being the case, Diabolic’s pioneering efforts don’t count for much now. Disappointingly, their auditions line tends to lag behind the others of its ilk (Mike John’s “Teenage Spermaholics” and “No Cum Dodging Allowed,” Brandon Irons’s “Six Pack,” and Vince Voyuer’s “7 the Hard Way,” which generally feature four or more dudes per scene, are the standouts here – especially Mike John’s work), so that by the time a volume hits the market, it’s chronologically out-of-synch. Supposedly an entrée to box cover glory as an Anabolic “gang bang girl,” “Auditions” just isn’t all that special anymore.

Or, at least, it hasn’t been for me. Number 13 in the series is the first I’ve glimpsed since the glory days of Anabolic/Diabolic super-strumpet Shyla, and, for the first time in a long time, I’m quite excited by the potential for unnatural romance. The reasons are simple: Dana Vespoli, Gia Paloma and Katsumi. That’s a perfect triple-play. Three of my favorite current girls, if not in fact my very favorites (give or take), squared off against a posse of high-end studs. You can tell these scenes have been in the can for a while, since now-exclusive PXP contract directors John Strong and Steve Holmes feature prominently, along with now missing-in-action anchormen like Brian Pumper and Tony T. But in this case, I’m not complaining. It’s actually fun to see the girls performing at a slightly fresher stage of their careers (though, for me, the hottest girls who can last past a year are actually much hotter, and much better performers, further into their carnal arc). Director Su, better known as Buffy Malibu and significant other of Anabolic owner Chris Alexander, picked up the reins from Diabolic owner Gregg Allan beginning with #11, and does a couple of things I appreciate: She favors medium shots that keep each girl’s face in the frame with quick breaks for close-ups on the action, and generally minimizes the male presence – beyond plunging cocks, of course. She also has an easy repartee with the talent pre- and post-show, softening the somewhat callous edge that has typified some Ana/Dia titles. Warm and fuzzy, this is not, but it’s refreshing to feel like the women are in charge of what transpires.

And what is that? Heavy-duty blowbangs with lots of gagging and sloppy wet spit flying through the air, anal rotisseries, DPs and DAPs and ATMs galore, all that nasty goodness all the time. It’s more formulaic than I like, with less of a sense of “flow,” but the enthusiastic performances of the girls and the expansive sense of their personalities (as such, or as much, as this scenario allows) makes each scene far more than rote. Even though, for this sort of theme, the scenes are very much the standard. (And this is where I miss the edge of Mike John’s work, and the elegance of Jules Jordan’s. Ana/Dia succeeded by establishing a raw paradigm that was, perhaps, a kind of “zero-degree” gonzo: None of that Evil/Elegant fancy shit. None of the angles or the narrative teases or the fetish filigrees. Just the sauce, boss. But, subsequently, the post-Ana/Dia diaspora has seen directors like John refine and recharge the “house style” into a more potent 2.0 version. Where Ana/Dia sustain their clout is in the brand name and in the capacity to lure incredible girls who happily and for the very first time dilate every orifice into moist and profound cavities of conspicuous cock-sumption, an irresistible “you saw it here first” appeal for any carnivorously slavering pornhound.)

On this DVD, the beauty of such a cast is the pleasure in contrasts. Dana exudes a cool sexuality that suddenly erupts into fast, ragged whispered commands to more forcefully pillage her ass and pussy – beautiful dark meat marinaded in her own simmering love juice. She takes more than a licking. The guys slap her around a little bit, but the touch of tough love just revs her up even more. Where Miss Vespoli (or should we call her Mrs. Ferrarra?) excels is in realizing a certain fantasy type: The slightly haughty “Queen Bitch,” the elegant and worldly woman just a tad too removed from some commoner such as yourself, to ever let you fuck her, but once fucked, she becomes a nuclear processor verging on meltdown. Who doesn’t love it? Gia Paloma, well, she’s ALREADY at the meltdown stage, and her aggressive cocksucking tactics launch her scene with a (blow)bang that highlights the movie. This Italian-American babe is the most “porn star” of the batch, an omnivorous “vagina dentata” who goes freaking wild on her co-stars, hoovering and hugbugging every cock in a mindboggling roundelay of relentless rutting. This girl’s asshole could double as a Humvee hangar. Amazing! But what’s terrific, really, is her constant enthusiasm, her wonderful body – as generous with babyfat as it is slathered with saliva, sweat and man-goo – and her all-consuming lips. She is sin in corporeal form, freshly evicted from the garden. After watching Gia demolish her five “manly manly” cocks, I’m convinced the only route back to paradise is through her ass. Thankfully, there is room enough for most of the male race. Lastly, the splendid exotic French-Viet babydoll Katsumi. The most fragile-seeming of the three girls, Katsumi sports an almost painfully perfect beauty: petite, physically limned like a high-class model, with delicate Asian features. She also is potently submissive, and when she speaks in that accent she is irresistibly, well, irresistible. Her scene is the “hottest,” in sheer porn terms, probably because she is most clearly dominated and fucked silly by her studs; she is also the kind of girl who seems most “out of reach” to regular porn viewers, I’d guess. (Even though Dana projects an air of unassailability, you can also read that quality as a front; Katsumi would be the gorgeous chick you meet in a nightclub who has a bodyguard watching her … well, in my crazy fantasies, anyway).

All in all, “Gangbang Auditions 13” is a worthy pick-up for fans of these girls. I’ve seen them all captured to better effect in other scenarios (the problem with gang bangs, inherently, is that they revolve around technical issues – docking and framing, mainly – and lose any real sense of chemistry that defines the best porn scenes). On the other hand, they all seem to have a great time (except for Katsumi when her eyeballs get blasted), and the action is crisp. It’s a solid effort, and, girls aside, probably one of the last Anabolic or Diabolic titles that will feature the likes of Strong or Holmes. They prove more than up for the occasion.


[Note on extras: Nothing special, some behind the scenes stuff that sets the pre/post show mood. But this isn't one of Chico Wang's field trips to the far side of beer-soaked wackiness. It's pretty much all business.]

[Note on tech: Su gets a great look from what I take to be a Panasonic 24p camera for the intro Q&A sequences. I'd like to see more!]
