Audio/Video Quality: Teen America: Mission #13 was presented in what appeared to be a 1.85:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as originally shot by the talented Robby D. for Digital Playground. The lighting was almost universally solid, greatly limiting most of the grain and video noise during the sex scenes. The amount of shadows was also limited, thanks in large part to the seasoned eye of director Robby but also the others who participated on the project. The composition of the shots enhanced the look of the gals in every case (I've lately watched titles with most of them that would have benefited by a more discerning eye) although the limitations of the gonzo format prevented Robby from truly innovating much here. The other good news is that the DVD mastering was as good as ever and I didn't see any compression artifacts. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English where the vocals were likely captured in monaural but the limited music and sound effects were added in on the other channels. In large part, this being a gonzo release means the audio wasn't a huge concern but the vocals were clearly discernable and added to the heat of the scenes.

Body of Review: Digital Playground is currently considered one of the top companies in porn in no small part thanks to the work of Robby D., their lead director/cameraman. His ability to look beyond the obvious and find something deeper sexually is well known by this reviewer, and I'm not talking about the goofy stylish crud he shoots for the women and couples market either. No, his strength goes beyond the technical excellence he's learned over the years in that he can always seem to find something about a woman to enhance, even if he relies on cohorts Joey and Nick to provide the humor many of his current series offer up. The latest gonzo title of his to hit the market is Teen America: Mission #13, the continuation of the beauty contest series spun off from the popular Jack's Playground; where his dad tells him to "get a job". The series has won awards (even from us in our 2005's Top Porn List) and been the most reliable series for heat, energy, and young hotties from the company so it was good to see another great volume as the baker's dozen curse is broken. Here's a quick breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were worn and that the scenes were all sweet:
Scene One: Two Holes, Two Dicks: Jasmine Byrne, one of my favorite Latina hotties, was up first as she answered the door in her schoolgirl outfit. Following the formula of the series, she teased Robby and Chris Charming (who was filling in for a tardy Scott Nails) as they discussed her standing in the contest (she had been on before and has rightfully proven to be a fan favorite). Robby hooked him up by describing Chris' huge dick, which led to Jasmine feeling him up and eventually sucking on it. Just as things were progressing nicely for Chris, Scott showed up and she wanted them both (although it was clear that Chris had the larger penis by far). She looked fine as she went back and forth between their shafts, sucking away like she was dripping wet underneath. Fans of hers will probably appreciate that she kept looking at the camera seductively as she used hands and mouth to work them up (and it didn't take long for Chris to pull down her tighty whities to begin drilling her perfect pussy). Scott got his chance too but one of the benefits of knowing her sexual repertoire is that I knew she would do a DP here, showing lots of energy and enthusiasm while doing so. Scott was on the bottom in her pussy so he kind of laid there while Chris tore into the ass like a white boy at the dance (lacking any real rhythm) but she seemed appreciative nonetheless. This led to the men swapping positions and then doing her one at a time, unleashing their loads to her open mouth far too early (though lasting longer than I would have done). With a great start like this, even her swallowing was just icing on the cake. Yum!
Scene Two: The Plane Boss! The Plane!: Jamie Huxley, a very lean brunette with an appealing face, was up next with Chris Charming after showing her body off (aside from her face, she had perfect breasts and a killer ass). The humor of the scene involved a supposed plane continually taking off or landing during her interview but as cute as that was (and I like the humor parts just fine), he oral on Chris' cock was of more interest to me today. Her energy levels at oral were actually higher than Jasmine's (not an easy thing to do) but she lacked some of Jasmine's warmth as she tried to prove her sexual stamina and athleticism. The oral was great but far too many gals rely on that alone so I was hesitant to see the rest of her skills until I saw her bouncing on his cock in her pussy. She might be leaner than I prefer but she was also sleek and built for speed over comfort, a fact she used repeatedly as she impaled herself soundly. The two kept boning until he was ready to pop a load into her 18 year old (well, at least she claimed to be 18) mouth as she gazed upwards to him with those pretty eyes of hers. She swallowed the load too with this being the second good scene to enjoy repeatedly.
Scene Three: This Little Piggy Got Fucked: Claire Robbins, the tomboyish gal seen on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, claimed to be a 19 year old from Idaho (isn't that where all porn performers come from?) as she showed her skills to the guys with Chris Charming her partner for the day. While she's not a classic beauty, especially with the short hair, she has nice bone structure; speaking of which, she took his bone deep inside her mouth after playing with an anal plug shaped like a pig's tail. Her oral was more amateurish than the previous two gals but she worked him over as best she could as he spanked her with her chain leash, showing a willingness to learn that worked for me here. Eventually, she decided to use hand to gland combat to assist her mouth with the oral, which led to him nailing her anally doggy style. Once on top, she was an active participant of the anal, bobbing up and down as though on fire for more, leading to a pop shot on the abdomen that she scooped up to swallow. It wasn't the best scene of the batch but there were some great scenes here to appreciate.
Scene Four: Que?: Sativa Rose, the hotty featured on the center of the front DVD cover in the muff buffer pink shorts and white belt, had difficultly speaking since she was in bondage gear but this didn't bother partner Scott Nails as he spanked her and offered up his dick for sucking. While not as gifted as Chris in terms of size, the word is that he's one of the better guys in terms of how he uses it (and the size difference isn't the only factor that matters), and she had no complaints as she slobbed his knob with her gifted mouth. In this sense, her oral is best compared to Jasmine's (they look a lot alike too) since she uses everything at her disposal to get a guy erect, playfully teasing him with eye contact, hand action, and slobber trails. He then took her from behind while Robby had her say the Pledge of Allegiance, a decidedly difficult task given the pounding he was giving her. Her PTM showed me that she liked the taste of her own pussy, playing it like a flute to show she was more than just a gifted sex worker. In terms of the vaginal positions, she handled them all well though she did seem to lean towards him doing most of the work at times, her only flaw in the scene worth mentioning (and she was still better than many of her pee; even before she turned on the juice). It ended when he rubbed out a load to her chest and ball gag, placing it back in her mouth to lick clean. Whew!
Scene Five: Scott and Chris Vs. Bianca: Bianca Pureheart, the bleach blonde seen on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up last in her schoolgirl outfit, claiming to be 19 years old. The initial interview was funny in how Robby and Scott Nails led her to believe that Jasmine was far ahead of her in chances of winning, leading Bianca to tell them she'd do anything to win. This being a porno, you know what happened next as she offered her body for them to play with until her dad came home. This gave Scott a case of blueballs as the duo were forced to hide in the closet, eventually relived that it was only Chris Charming arriving for the shoot. The two guys acted like they were competing against one another as they played with her body in the somewhat darker-than-average setting inside the house. Thankfully, the closet was better lit and after a second retreat there, the scene showed the trio went at it, with some decent blowjobs and solid screwing of her pussy. The more she got into it, the faster and harder she rode them, blowing one while riding the other as the contest between the men continued. The both popped off into her mouth (if you care to know who dropped the bigger load, measure it yourselves) and the scene cut away before truly ending. It was a good scene, marking five solid scenes worth watching.
Summary: Teen America: Mission #13 was easily worthy of being considered Highly Recommended for the cast, the technical values, and the levels of fuck for the buck it had to offer. This might surprise some of you that think the volumes starring contract stars are routinely better but it also forces Robby to concentrate on providing the best show he can without the crutch of the popular team gals he sometimes gets to showcase. Granted, I like seeing their bevy of beauties too (especially at full speed with the vocals left intact) but volumes like this one prove that Robby doesn't have to rely on them in order to make excellent movies. So, if you're in the market for a gonzo fuck fest worthy of your hard earned money, Teen America: Mission #13 should be on your short list. Good work!
