Extra's: There were some good extras here, as expected from a Red Light District production. They started out with an 18 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the gals combined photoshoot material, short anecdotes, and some nudity (the voices changed from time to time with Tim Von Swine being one of them working the camera). There was also a 12 minute solo tease and masturbation scene by Autumn Westin, 5 minutes of scenes where some of the women showered (soaping themselves up nicely), 6.5 minute long feature "Jizz on the Jugs" that amounted to a pop shot compilation although little jizz landed on any of the jugs since the women were actively swallowing at the time, photogallery, and double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Young Ripe Mellons 8 was presented in the same non-anamorphic widescreen director Vince Vouyer shot it in for Red Light District. The aspect ratio looked to be 1.85:1 and it was a pleasant change from the usual fool frame so popular in porn. The lighting was better than average and the scenes were shot in the Red Light District building, typically in the warehouse some of you aspire to work in. There were no video noise or compression artifacts and the composition of the scenes was virtually always favorable to the performers. There was the usual light watermark in the lower right hand corner but it wasn't all that noticeable to me (the action on the screen was nearly always centered or substantially far away from the watermark, perhaps on purpose). The camerawork was a little jittery at times with Vince trying to get as much breast footage as possible but I think it was balanced out nicely and gave the scenes some fresh appeal. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English was about the same as always though I could hear the performers nicely in most cases.

Body of Review: Vince Vouyer has long been a staple in porn and his role in making Red Light District a powerhouse of gonzo porn should not be underestimated. This is not to say he did it all alone but he certainly assisted in that regard more than most and his recent announcement of a departure is met with mixed feelings on my part. I've heard all the rumors and appreciate that sometimes people grow out of their positions at companies so I wish him well wherever he ends up. One of his last releases for Red Light District is Young Ripe Mellons 8, the series that I last reviewed far too long ago with Young Ripe Mellons 4. The concept is simple; Vince puts a number of scenes together that use women with large breasts to sexually please a variety of men. This edition was slightly enhanced in that it had the women swallowing the orgasms as well as provide the usual breast tease and other gonzo tricks. If that sounds good to you, you're going to really appreciate the show so here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and actions, noting that I knew all but a couple of the secondary male performers:
Scene One: Texas Presley, the Texan hotty with lots of tattoos and a 36DD rack in her 7th scene, Tiffany Taylor, a more classic beauty with bright eyes and 32C breasts, were up first in a scene with Steve French after some interview footage (and minor tease). Texas was the more sexually aggressive of the two though and after some breast play, she was sucking his dick like a champ. The gals then double teamed him before Texas once again went first and took the dick in her tight pussy with some PTM (pussy to mouth by both gals). Tiffany forgot to speak French as promised when her turn came up but Texas showed her some down home hospitality and assisted her in the sexual antics here. In all, it was a fun scene (Tiffany eventually did speak some French too). It ended with some cum swapping by the gals and Texas swallowing as the cover advertised. The gals had some energy and chemistry with Texas leading the pack once again as the best of the trio in terms of performance.
Scene Two: Sarah Stone, a 21 year old with 32DD breasts was featured on the front DVD cover as it being her first scene ("introducing"), was up next as she teased in the hallway with those ample bosoms of hers swaying back and forth, nearly hypnotizing me. Her partner for the scene was John Strong and he seemed to appreciate the opportunity to work with such a fine gal as this who was just spreading her wings (or was that "legs"?). Her breasts bounced around nicely and she showed a fair amount of enthusiasm during her work here, actively riding him as though she were into the sex more than there for the money. Yeah, there was PTM and lots of oral to be seen but she looked at the camera as if to draw in the viewer at home in a very heated manner whenever she wasn't actively gazing into John's eyes (my preference is for the gal to be lost in the eyes of her partner at all times that her position allows her to be). It ended with her milking his dick orally but also had some of the rougher stuff many of you seem to enjoy. This fine scene was also ended with some swallowing action but she wasn't through yet as she went to the next room to find Kyle Stone and Joe Rock (?) for milking on the couch (more oral and swallowing!).
Scene Three: Joanna Angel, a lean brunette with nice 34C breasts has been the subject of some controversy of late, was up next in a scene that followed the formula well enough as her all natural body appealed to my sensibilities. John Strong was the lucky stud again and he didn't care that she had no New York accent since he wanted to bang her silly. She teased his dick orally and he skipped most of the preliminaries to bone her pussy on the couch. This led to some powerful anal that she cleaned off his dick (ATM) but she was actively seeking that cock inside her ass; jamming her hand in there when he pulled out for a moment. She was the first gal that was particularly lacking in energy during the screwing (she was still talented at fellatio though) and the initial scene ended with some swallowing but she tried to get more dick and sought some out in the men's bathroom. Kyle Stone was the lucky fellow that got some oral off her and she swallowed his load too. Tim found Brad Baldwin and she repeated the procedure on his cock too. She has a way to go before reaching the sexual skill of her peers but she does the oral well enough that I'm willing to wait for her to catch up to them.
Scene Four: Bailey Bliss, a gal with a few extra pounds but a cute face and 34D breasts, started off the next scene dressed as a stripper cop; donning a black fishnet top, black shorts, and a police hat and badge. Apparently, she has a cop fetish and relishes the idea of being in control so she made it sound like any law officers out there are in for a great time when she's around (lucky them!). She followed the formula too with Erik Everhard and John Strong giving her the workout of her life. Being sexually active since she was 13 (she was then 20 years old), she gained some substantial skills and admitted to being both a little bit whore and little bit slut (sounding perfect for one of Vince's movies). There was a scenario this time where she pulled over their car and started sucking them off though and I'm sure that citizen relations with police would be much better if she were in charge of them, leading them onto the couch inside for the real fun to begin. Sexually, the action was oral, vaginal, anal and all the trimmings. There was a little bit of rough stuff but no DP's and even the choking was minimal. They rubbed out loads to her mouth after she did PTM and ATM (throughout the scene) and she sought out more cock from Kyle Stone and Brad Baldwin to assist her. In all, I thought she was talented and energetic, making the scene fun to watch over and over again.
Scene Five: Ali Kat, a redhead with 34D breasts and a playful attitude, was up last with Brian Surewood, John Strong, and Steve French inside the house. I would've liked more tease footage from her but she had pretty eyes and a stripper's demeanor befitting her 20 year old body. Fans of large areolas will be happy to know that she had them as will fans of hairy pussies. She began by sucking off John, then Brian, before Steve joined them on the living room couch. I liked how she handled them all at once orally (using her hands to assist the effort) and the screwing portion included some fine DP work from her. I'll admit that I prefer a little hair down there on a gal since I hate razor burn and the stubble scratches my balls (no jungles though; I've been there more than a few times in the last number of years) and while she wasn't the best looking of the gals, she was skilled at what she does for a living and showed some energy befitting that talent. After swallowing their loads down easily, she went to the next room to blow Lee Bang and Joe Rock to another set of frothy orgasms in her mouth like a good gal.
Summary: Young Ripe Mellons 8 had a solid cast of large breasted women, good production values, nice extras, and a tremendous amount of fuck for the buck. While not all the scenes were as great as possible, the average scene here was a lot better than I expected so I rated the show as Highly Recommended. The rough edges aside, the ladies were typically on fire sexually and I thought the amount of swallowing action rivaled all but the most extreme oral release (noting that Brandon Iron, David Luger, and others at RLD/PXP make some excellent swallowing videos too). If you hate hardcore sexual antics, large natural breasts, and skilled performers, pass it up but all others will want a copy for their own given the replay and stroke value this DVD had.
