Extra's: The best extra was the series of solo scenes by the cast. Now that masturbation movies are becoming more common (as with Watch Me Cum!), these extras are becoming more frequently observed. I like them even though they were too short this time. Another decent, if too short, extra was the 5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Eric Allen. It didn't have all the gals in it and seemed to focus on the cast farting but it was cute and added some replay value. There was also a set of trailers, a compilation of the pop shots, a photogallery, and a double sided DVD cover (although the second cover was an advertising cover only).
Audio/Video Quality: Ass Factor 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Guy Capo for DVSX. The colors were accurate, the grain minimal, the lighting pretty fair, and the composition of the shots pleasing to the eye for the most part. There were no noticeable compression artifacts or major amounts of video noise and my overall assessment of the picture quality was favorable. The stereo audio was pretty basic, as expected, but it didn't detract from the heated scenes included on the DVD. I would have turned off (or at least turned down) the droning music though.

Body of Review: Guy Capo, the tall, manly director at DVSX, has been in the porn world in some capacity or another for a long time now and his shot at directing has proven to be nicely done. While not the best at the company (yet!), he has a different way of looking at things and may prove to be even more of an asset to the company than some of the more established directors they employ in due time. His latest work is Ass Factor 2, a gonzo release where each gal does anal with a man after warming up by using a glass dildo. The scenes weren't all that different from his previous work (or one another) so your mileage will vary as to how good you think the DVD is but aside from some generally weak extras, it had a fair amount to offer a fan. Here's a look at the scenes, noting that condoms weren't used and the cast was very varied in terms of sexual energy and heat:
Scene One: Barbara Summer, the very attractive blonde on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up first to establish the format of the show. She was reclined on a bed and pumping away at her ass with a glass dildo shoved deep inside her curvy, sweet ass. After warming up and doing some ATM (ass to mouth), she took on porn veteran Alex Sanders, who wasted no time diving deep into her rectum with his penis. She would routinely take him inside her mouth after it received a new coating of ass juice. She aggressively pumped up and down on his shaft though and did so with a precise mechanical manner that sex workers are known for but lacked the chemistry I like to see in my porn. Still, it was a decent scene otherwise and ended with the usual facial that he rubbed out with glee.
Scene Two: Katja Kassin, the leading anal queen in porn these days, was up next on a couch following the formula with the expensive looking blue striped clear glass dildo getting shoved up her fine ass with the practiced ease of a professional. I missed seeing her neon red hair (or even blonde look she was going with until recently) but fans of brunettes can now enjoy her as much as the rest of us I suppose. Her scene cut away to Kurt Lockwood slamming it in her pussy rather than slowly fade to that kind of thing but it wasn't long before she was taking it anally as well (doing some fine technical DP work along the way) with the intermittent oral for fans of PTM and ATM. Those who like seeing a gal rim her partner (salad tossing indeed…) will get a bit of that too but the focus of her sexually energetic and heated performance was her screwing. It looked like she dropped a few pounds here so fans of leaner gals will rejoice but she looks good at any weight I've seen her at so I'm not complaining. It ended when he rubbed out a load into her mouth; she gargled with it, and then spit it on a glass pane to lick it off. Whew!
Scene Three: Missy Monroe, the blonde featured in the middle of the front DVD cover known to be among the very best anal divas in porn, was up next as she diddled herself in the ass with a clear & blue bumpy glass dildo. In the scene, her sexy outfit was pink but the cover showed it as white so I'm wondering what happened there but otherwise her scene with Sascha went well. The action was similar to the others with the usual energetic performance she is known for giving, differing only in that he jerked off to her ass at the very end. If you like seeing a gal driven to milk a guy's nuts in every hole of her body, especially anal, she's a top contender for the title given the manner in which she never lets up.
Scene Four: Michelle Lay, the lean brunette on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next all dressed up in a black outfit that enhanced her looks more than the front DVD cover seemed to show. She jilled herself with a glass dildo, tasted her juices a few times, and even spanked herself to get ready for the action. While not the most sexually talented gal of the show, she was in pretty good form with pretty boy Nick Manning joining her for an active scene on a bed with black and purple sheets. I liked that he shut up this time (mostly) and let her do all the vocals but she didn't seem able to say much more than "oh yeah, oh yeah" at any discernable levels until the end of the scene (at which time Nick started blabbing too unfortunately). The anal was okay as was the taste testing but she lacked anything to set her apart from the others.
Scene Five: Ana Nova, another curvy German with a change in hair color (not on the front DVD cover either!) was up next on a couch before her scene with Jack Lawrence. She followed the formula well, tasting the glass dildo after pulling it out of her ass, but I've seen her really turn it on in the past so I was kind of let down at how mechanically she performed once Jack joined her. I know she's capable of amazing feats of heated, passionate, sex with guys but she either had an off day or something else went wrong because while all the mechanics of the scene were fine, she seemed distant this time. The solo action appeared to be substantially longer than the other scenes (I didn't time it though) so you may enjoy it more than I did.
Scene Six: Marie Luv, the sole black gal of the movie and probably my least favorite performer here, was up next in a scene on a couch with Van Damage. She wore a gold sequined outfit, had some nice DSLs (dick sucking lips) and gave her usual "I'll overact and guys at home jerking off will think I'm into it" routine. This was the weakest anal scene of the bunch since she seemed to prefer taking him in her pussy instead but that wasn't the reason the scene was lame; it was lame because she didn't seem to have fun and it showed, over and over again. Blah!
Summary: Ass Factor 2 was worth a rating of Rent It to me since a couple of the scenes were so disappointing. Katja Kassin and Missy Monroe were both a lot of fun to watch but the others have either been much better elsewhere or lacked any appeal to me. I sense that Guy will keep working at providing quality adult entertainment in the future, providing some great work, but this wasn't his best work overall. Still, fans of the cast will want to see their preferred performers in action as the advertised concept was followed as closely as could be so check it out if you get the chance.
