Initial Expectations: Jail Babes 14 didn’t impress me much, but I’m still going to give this series another shot because of the cast here.
Initial Reaction: It’s pretty average.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the stars
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is pretty clear and nicely balanced but there are a few background noises. The video has some very slight grain, as well as a few flashes of remnants. Things are sometimes broke apart with a few artistic black and white shots, which look pretty nice.
Music: There’s a little cheesy music that rests nicely in the background.
Menus: The main menu has some decent animation that gives the DVD a great opening. The chapter menu also shows some great care by letting you choose a scene based on a small clip of the scene and the name of the women in the scene.
The Feature: The Jail Babes series revolves around porn stars who have supposedly been arrested. Each star talks about why they were arrested, as well as talking a little about themselves before the scene.
Brandi Lyons, a decent looking brunette with a nice natural body, starts out talking about how she was arrested with distribution and possession of marijuana. Brandi’s husband Scott Lyons, one of the worst looking guys in porn, magically appears so they work each other over orally before Scott slides himself into Brandi missionary style. They continue on with a bit of reverse cowgirl and doggie before Brandi takes Scott’s poor population pudding pop in and around her mouth. She even swallows a little down, which I always like to see. It’s an average at best scene that was held back a bit for me by some lackluster editing and camera work.
Candy Cotton, a rather unattractive and overly implanted bleached blonde, shows up next and talks about being arrested for taking money for sexual favors. She takes on a fate worse than prison by being teamed with Dave Hardman, and starts things off sixty-nining him before letting him concentrate on eating her bald pussy. They work through a few of the standard positions with Candy doing an okay job of trash talking and playing to the camera as they work through them. Dave gives Candy’s ass a little oral attention here and there, and finally finishes things off giving her a good facial. It’s another pretty average scene that was better than what I expected from Candy.
Shanna McCullough talks about getting busted fucking in a public restroom for the next scene. She starts off the sex portion of her scene playing with herself before Dave Hardman devours her edible underwear. Shanna returns the favor with a little oral action, as well as some titty fucking before climbing on Dave to work him through both cowgirls and some doggie. They finish things with a fairly unimpressive facial that Shanna takes on her tongue wide eyed and fearless. It’s a hot scene with Shanna showing just why she continues to impress me. She’s an older star, but looks natural doing what she does as well as obviously enjoying it.
Elizabeth X, a gorgeous redhead who was arrested for speeding, and Mia Demore, a very good looking brunette who was arrested for smoking weed while driving, team up for the penultimate scene. Mia works Elizabeth up to four fingers before breaking out a rubber cock to work on her pussy. Surprisingly, that isn’t the end of things for Elizabeth, as Mia goes back to fingering, sucking, and spanking her pussy before turning around for Elizabeth to return the favor. Elizabeth works over both of Mia’s holes before breaking out the rubber cock, which gives Mia several orgasms. Although the camera work seems limited, the heat between these two made me almost forget it. Elizabeth X. has rarely disappointed me, and this scene isn’t on that small list.
Finally, Miko Lee, who’s just advertised as a “nasty jailhouse whore” lays back and works her pussy over with a vibrator and a pocket rocket. She also fingers and fucks her ass before working both of her holes over with her toys. Throughout it all she talks with the cameraman about what she likes. I’m not sure if this helped the scene out or not, but it’s pretty obvious that Miko’s having one heck of a great time. Sadly, the scene cuts out before it looks like Miko’s finished, which made this one go from a great scene to an average at best scene. It’s really too bad since rather than ending the feature on what would have been a very high note if Miko had finished, it ends the feature on a disappointing note.
Jail Babes 18 is a pretty good feature. The interviews leading into the scenes are well done and, whether they’re true or not, are handled believably by the stars. The sex is pretty good and has good chemistry, but is held back by fugly male talent and lackluster camera work. I’m pretty sure that the scenes in the feature were shot with only one camera, but the camera seems to only want to focus on a couple things, and only take one or two angles throughout each scene rather than moving around to try and best capture what’s going on. It’s rare to see the faces of both people as they’re fucking, so although you hear them both having what sounds like a great time, you don’t get to see them both having a great time. Despite that, Jail Babes 18 is a pretty good feature that handles itself very well. It isn’t anything wildly spectacular, but if you’re a fan of the talent here, odds are you’ll go away happy.
Extras: Trailers are included for almost every Hustler series out there. There’s also a slide show that lasts two minutes with about six seconds per decent looking photo and internet information.
Themes: Straight, swallowing, rimming (male > female and female > female), masturbation, tit-fucking, lesbian, toys, spanking, anal, and DP
Raincoat Factor: Very High
Overall: Currently, much of the Jail Babes series can be found online for between $15 and $26 with most stores offering them for around $20. At the low end this isn’t that bad of a buy, but I wouldn’t consider paying much more than that. There’s a decent idea here, and it’s handled very well. The technical aspects are pretty average, but there isn’t too much for extras.
Note to Hustler: This seems like a pretty basic DVD for the price it’s selling for. Please consider adding a few more extras, such as maybe a bonus scene or two from your other features. This should make people feel like they received a better value for their money, and if you pick the right scenes, should help you sell a few more movies.
