|Joey Silvera's Service Animals 13 (2003)|
The First Word: Part male domination, part rough sex, part circus act, and a big helping classic Joey Silvera hardcore come together to become Service Animals 13.
What's It About?: Lovely Taylor Rain is the first girl, and the video starts out straightaway with her outside of a studio in the parking lot, smoking a cigarette. Wearing a black see-thru top and a frayed jean skirt, she ends up inside with Brandon Irons, who ties her up with some black nylon rope, the end of which ends up in her asshole. First off is face-fucking, with lots of spit, coughing, and verbal domination; it's okay up to a point, but it goes a little too far for my taste with Taylor shedding some tears. I don't think they're from pain, but as a reaction to the vigorous skull-fucking--still, I could have done without it. As Manuel Ferrara joins in, there's a nice shot of Brandon DP'ing her with a buttplug. Unfortunately, it's not long before they return to the face-fucking. Still, most of the scene is absolutely torrid: it's mind-blowing to see Taylor get plowed vaginally, fucked nicely in the ass in the spoon and reverse cow, and also get a giant metal jack shoved in her ass. This scene alone should put SA13 on every raincoater's wish list!
There's a change of pace next with blonde Katrina, who's dressed in a cheerleading uniform. She looks older than the 18 years, 3 months she claims to be thanks to her pierced nipples and the extreme facial closeups. The cheerleading outfit is gone a few seconds later, and she's matched up with Ashley Blue (wearing too much makeup), Avy Scott, and MC Hammer-wannabe Justin Slayer. The first part of the scene is spent with Justin fucking Ashley while Avy probes Katrina's mound. Honestly, this scene would have been a lot better without Katrina--her multitude of piercings and the children's drawing tattooed on her mons (not to mention the huge design on her lower back) were big turn-offs. Overall, not only does it not fit in with the "Service Animals" theme, but it really is kind of tedious to watch the potpourri of different action. One second it's a vibe, the next it's girl-girl, the next it's anal, the next it's solo girl, the next it's... Too much is going on and most of it isn't very exciting.
Thankfully, we're back to Service Animals action with energetic Crystal Ray, a very, very skinny blonde, sucking guns and dicks in Joey's garage. Koal Minah (groan) seems to be an unlikely porn stud until we see Crystal sucking his huge black cock--she can't even get half of it into her mouth. Brandon is back, and sure enough, it's not long before another face-fuck and corresponding tear leakage. Gagging fans will be pleased; as for me, I was just waiting for her to puke based on the sickening noise. Blowjobs dominate this scene, with only a little vag action as a change of pace.
In a scene that one could easily mistake for a Vince Voyuer production, Steve Hatcher and Erik Everhard share Cameron, who is having an acne problem, which the makeup artist tried to cover up with a lot of makeup. Joey should know better than to do screen-filling head shots when so much makeup is used. Anyway, it's a pretty standard gonzo scene, with crewcut-sporting Hatcher focusing mostly on fucking her mouth, while Everhard goes for the home run. There's a funny moment when Erik tries to emulate a Chinese acrobat. The scene ends rather uniquely with a nice titfuck that brings Brandon to a hands-free pop on Cameron's ample boobs.
Dyed redhead Maggie Star wears a schoolgirl uniform and looks to be punished by Brandon and Flower. Like clockwork, Brandon teaches Maggie the fine art of drooling and getting face-fucked while Flower assists, slapping her face, pulling her, and calling her a bitch. Then Flower receives the Brandon treatment too. The nasty factor is ratcheted up several notches when Flower basically pisses on the camera and into Maggie's open mouth at Joey's direction. Not my thing... Anyway, as the video goes into the home stretch, there's some nice reverse cow and doggy before Dick Nasty comes into the studio and joins in for the final three minutes. Aside from the okay facial pop on Flower, it's a pretty weak wrap up.s
What I liked: Good intensity: The sex in Service Animals 13 is definitely edgy and except for the second scene, there's hardly a dull moment in the nearly 3 hours of hardcore. Contrast this to, say, John Leslie, who makes some really good pornography, but it's not uncommon to hit one of JL's vids that is a dragging bore. At least with Joey's productions you can count of some hard and fast action. And it was a good decision to hire Brandon for a few of the scenes since he thrives on this sort of genre.
Natural tits: I'm all for unenhanced boobs, and I didn't notice a boob job on any of the girls. I think that helps with the illusion -- there's nothing that spoils scenes for me faster than seeing a pair of bolt-ons. Those sorts girls have to exhibit some amazing talents if they want to overcome my initial negative reaction.
The metal jack: If one thing will stick in my mind after seeing this video, it's the larger-than-life, toy turned sex toy that will linger. Maybe that's a circus act, but unusual objects is one of those three-ring acts that I'd pay to see (okay, I guess we are paying to see that, but you know what I mean!).
What I didn't like: Rough sex: It's no secret that I'm not a fan of rough sex. Service Animals is not really a series that I seek since the rough stuff and domination aspects don't appeal to me. On the other hand, I do dig the intensity of the sex. I just wish that it was a little more toned down; I could have done without the slapping, gagging, and drooling like a mad dog
Tats, tats, everywhere; too many I think: Most of the girls in this video have large, showy tattoos that really distract from their natural look. While I realize that there aren't many girls who look like Taylor Rain who are willing to get skull fucked and anally plowed in a Joey Silvera video, but if I want to see a tattoo exhibition, I'll pick up a copy of Skin.
DVD Extras: As typical when Evil Angel distributes a director's releases, this DVD is pretty bare bones, with the standard photo gallery, cast list, filmographies, websites, and the fetish selection menu. The extra feature of note on this DVD is 30-minutes of additional footage, that is just as good as the 139 minutes that made the final cut. Some of the highlights: Taylor barking like a dog, Katrina playing with preschool toys, Avy Scott getting fucked with the heel of a shoe, the aftermath of Crystal Ray pissing on the camera and on Brandon's face.
A/V Quality: The video quality is excellent with very few defects. The shots are well-lit and I didn't see any DVD-related quality issues. The audio is clear and it's easy to hear what's going on (slups, gags, and dirty talk). Plus, without music overlaid onto the production sound, it's even easier to hear.
The Last Word: While I don't care for the rough sex element of Service Animals series, I think this volume is worth picking up for it's non-stop intensity and solid sex. I'd say this is comparable to the average Vince Vouyer or Jules Jordan video -- with rougher, more dominant sex. A couple of the scenes may be below average and the girls, with the exception of Taylor, are clearly B-list talent, but the end result is a good gonzo offering overall, especially if gagging BJ's are your kink.
