The First Word: Jim Gunn's first DVD under his own label features high quality video of new girls in lesbian action, dressed in cheerleading outfits. Although the disc has some things going for it and is better than your average girl-girl video, the idea of a Lesbian Cheerleader Squad sounds better than it is.
Plot Synopsis: Denee Dreams and Cat host this all-sex, cheerleader-themed, lesbian feature. Each of the scenes begins with a very short introduction by Denee and Cat, followed by the start of the action. Although there is a bit of bullshit at the beginning of each scene to try to give the impression that these girls are (bisexual) cheerleaders), thankfully they don't try to play the cheerleader bit throughout the scene. After about 15 seconds of theme setup, they move directly into the kissing and foreplay. The format of the seven scenes is pretty much the same: setup, kissing, fondling, oral sex, then fun with toys. There are two foursome scenes, which feature two couples and have some extended strap-on action. All of the girls are dressed in the same red and white cheerleader uniforms with red poms (which are used as toys in the last scene).
What I liked: Lots of kissing and foreplay: There's something about seeing two women kiss that's strangely erotic, and this video has quite a bit of kissing. Not much in the way of passionate kisses; they are mostly open mouthed tongue play with some quick smootches. However, the amount of kissing and nuzzling puts most porn titles to shame. The girls spend quite a bit of time caressing each other, playing with breasts, and worshiping butts. It's nice to see several minutes of warm-up before the inevitable muff-diving starts.
Ashley Heart & Gina Rae: Although most of the girls in this video have cute looking faces and look good in the cheerleader outfits, they tend to look out of character once you see their bodies. Ashley and Gina are exceptions to this with their young and natural bodies matching their innocent looking faces. I'm especially fond of Ashley, a 19-year old brunette with natural, slightly sagging boobs, who fits the young cheerleader type better than any others. She also acts the part, being a little shy and hesitant in her scenes. As far as Gina, while her body fits the part, her dirty talking seems somewhat out of place. Anyway, my next comment doesn't apply to these two young ladies...
What I didn't like: Use of dancers as talent: While I don't suppose there are many innocent looking 18-year olds that are willing to be in porn, a cast of women with implants, tattoos, multiple body piercings, and huge fake nails doesn't fit well into my fantasy of young, nubile cheerleaders. A couple of them have dancer's implants, complete with oversized breasts and the scars to tell you how they got them. And since they're not actresses, they don't deliver the scripted lines with any believability whatsoever. In my opinion, it was not the best choice to have Denee and Cat as the hosts, since they aren't good at dialogue and they don't sound like any cheerleader (real or imagined) I've heard. Finally, the cast's frequent, nervous glances at the camera are pretty distracting too. It's not even the "first time" or "first lesbian experience" type of glances, but more like they are questioning, "is this what you want?"
Unconvincing or invisible orgasms: I'm aware that most orgasms in the porn world are faked, but generally they are faked with enough authenticity that you can suspend disbelief. But there are several points in this video that it's blatantly obvious that the girls are not enjoying themselves, especially when passionate phrases like "oh, that feels so good" are almost delivered deadpan. And unfortunately, most of the scenes end with no apparent orgasm by any of the girls. It's like they are having sex until the length of the scene is reached and they decide to call it a day and end the scene without a climax. To me, that's a pretty good indication that the performers really aren't into girls.
DVD Extras: This disc includes a pretty average extras package, with a trailer and standard-sized photo gallery. The only really notable extra on the disc are the cast bios that were written by Jim Gunn himself. They feature a video clip of the girl, a description of how Jim found her, and what she does in the video. The profiles are a lot better than the glorified filmographies or vital stat sheets that other studios pass off as bios.
A/V Quality: The audio and video quality of this DVD are top notch, just about as good as one can expect from a shot-on-video feature of this type. The video is crisp, clear, and free of any compression artifacts. It's so good, that it's almost like standing right there, without being so sharp that it feels artificial. The only complaint I have is that the white level is a bit too bright in the scenes shot in sunlight and tends to wash out the elements that are in the sun. The audio is very good, especially when you consider that the feature was shot outdoors. The sound is free of distortions and is recorded at a loud enough level that you won't have to crank up the volume to hear what's going on.
The Last Word: I'm not really into the whole cheerleader fetish, so perhaps this title would appeal better to those who are into that particular fantasy. From a "barely legal" & first timer perspective, Lesbian Cheerleader Squad is above average, although it's pretty obvious that these girls are models and dancers. Although it's nice to see the amount of foreplay and lesbian kissing, the sex itself isn't particularly outstanding, especially with the missing or faked orgasms. Powered by the excellent A/V quality and fresh faces, Jim Gunn's first DVD gets an above average grade from me, and will probably be better received by those with kissing or cheerleader fetishes.
