Cast: Melissa Lauren, John Strong, Steve Holmes, Katja Kassin, Michael Stefano, Haley Paige, Staci Thorn, Chanel Chavez
Length: 160 minutes
Date of Production: 11/30/2004
Extra's: The best extra here was a 14 minute long set of deleted scenes that showcased the cast getting all the same action they had in the main feature. Some of the angles were off and I could see why they edited it out but fans of the cast will enjoy the action just fine. There was also a well made 11 minute long Behind the Scenes feature (by Jake Maolne, John Strong, and Brandon Iron) that gave the gals some nice screen time and let them provide some anecdotes from their sorted pasts. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, a cumshot recap and a double sided DVD cover (although it was just a selection of covers from other PXP releases).
Audio/Video Quality: Ass 2 Mouth #2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color that John uses in all his releases. For the most part, it looked pretty good although there were some minor issues with lighting on a few scenes that bugged me as it added grain to the picture. Otherwise, the fleshtones were accurate, the focus sharp and the composition of the shots nicely done for a gonzo release. In time, John may refine his craft to become like some of his coworkers at PXP but he has a few titles under his belt so he's off to a good start already. The stereo English audio was about what I expected from the release with minimal interference, limited separation between the channels and an okay dynamic range. Audio is tough to edit too so I have to give nods at John (and most of the gonzo porn world) for doing so much with so little attention and budget.

Body of Review: Platinum X Pictures is commonly referred to as the edgier, more extreme version of famed Red Light District (they are affiliated companies) with more of the circus act sex fans have clamored for over recent years. This isn't to say that the movies they release are anything less, on average at least, than what their big brother puts out but just an indicator of who might enjoy their stuff. Their 126th release, Ass 2 Mouth #2, is by director John Strong, a man who built up his reputation in front of the camera for his muscular body and sexual stamina. In the movie, each gal gets to taste her own ass juice off toys and/or penis a whole lot of times and therefore did anal in each scene too (as advertised). There was a whole lot to like and here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and actions taken by them:
Scene One: Melissa, the bleached blonde French anal queen, started off her scene bent over wearing an outfit similar to the one worn by Katja on the front DVD cover (except for having a neon green top). John, the studly pervert directing the movie, was up first as her partner and he immediately began playing with her ass, fingering it (with some ass to mouth) and using a toy to stretch her out. He then handed her off to Steve, who got some gaggingly harsh oral from her before slamming it in her ass (he spanked her a bunch too) when she begged him to do so. Pretty soon both guys were on her like white on rice, hammering away in a DP before the facial and swallowing action. Their energy level set the pace for the rest of the cast and I found the chemistry levels to be exceptionally high too.
Scene Two: Katja Kassin, the hotty on the front DVD cover, should be no stranger to anyone watching gonzo porn over the last year. She has done it all and done it all with a passion that few could approach in a great many scenes for numerous companies. I'm not sure if I liked her lighter hair color (leaning towards blonde here) but her performance was every bit as good as I expected in this scene with Steve and Michael. The initial action took place on the patio with Steve getting a great blowjob by the cutie and moved to an inside couch for the more complete sexual misadventures of the trio. Like the other scenes, she did lots of ATM and took them in her ass as though she enjoyed every second of it with a lot of DP action to boot. Fans of gapes and gals giving rimjobs to men will appreciate this one a lot too and I thought it was a very well done scene (with swallowing too).
Scene Three: Haley, a very cute gal (with a twisted story of her first sexual experience when she was 12 in the BTS feature), was up next, wearing a more traditional bra and panty combination. John was her sole partner this time and I can see why she has gained a lot of fans this past year since her slight overbite and attractive face worked well with her smoking body and sexually depraved attitude. The action was much the same as the previous two gals, including rimming by her to him, and plenty of ATM but she was also one of the most vocal gals in the movie. It was a well done scene with a fair amount of heat and some minor chemistry but not quite up to the first two of the show (and that is understandable).
Scene Four: Staci, a pretty blonde wearing blue jean shorts and a black PVC top, marred only by some gross tattoos on her right arm, was up next in a scene upstairs by a couch. Steve and John were the recipients of her attentions both orally and with all the gonzo action you'd expect from an ATM movie put out by PXP. She seemed aggressive in her style and her willingness to do anything they wanted (including choking) was well demonstrated too. Her energy levels were solid and while I didn't see much chemistry, her passion levels made up for it (a good performance). It ended with some swallowing and contributed to a good release by virtue of how well it was all recorded.
Scene Five: Chanel, a hot newbie with dark hair and perhaps the leanest body of the cast, began her scene by crawling up the indoor staircase with her ass in the air wearing a black bra and panties. She stopped to play with a red butt plug and Michael joined her, plunging it deep inside her nice ass. He replaced it with his penis and she sucked him clean before continuing to climb up the stairs where they were joined by John. I think she was the youngest gal of the bunch (at least she looked the youngest) and her energy levels were as high as the established professionals but she also had a nice playfulness that I found refreshing. She did it all too, oral, straight, anal and DP (with plenty of taste testing) and the solid scene ended with more swallowing.
Summary: Ass 2 Mouth #2 was exactly as advertised, having a number of hotties engage in some of the riskiest sex known to mankind for your viewing pleasure. Each gal provided the kind of performance that I expected of them and showed they have what it takes to compete in the high energy Olympics of gonzo porn. I'm going to rate this one as Highly Recommended for the sheer amount of solid fuck for the buck but keep in mind that this type of porn isn't for everyone. It's easy to see why Platinum X Pictures is known as the sleeping giant of gonzo; a title I don't expect to last much longer once word gets out.
