Cast: Marie Luv, Tony Tedeschi, Mia Bangg, Manuel Ferrara, Holly Wellin, Randy Spears, Jasmine Tame, Hillary Scott, Candy Manson, Evan Stone, Faith, Chris Cannon; Cytherea & Lee Stone (in bonus scene only)
Length: 128 minutes
Date of Production: 10/13/2005
Extras: The best extra for most of you will be the bonus scene from Hook Ups 4 between Cytherea and Lee Stone. It lasted 14 minutes and took place outside on a beautiful day by a fountain, offering up a nice view of these two established performers. Personally, I enjoyed the 19 minute long feature tease talk which came across as a Behind the Scenes series of interviews and comedy by the cast. It had more value than the bonus scene because this was the only place you could find it but mainly due to the appeal of the cast as they readied for their scenes. There were also a number of photogalleries and a classy cardboard protective sleeve, two promotional reels, DVD ROM materials like Wicked Awards and Nominations, company profile, and desktops, a DVD catalog, some spam, and trailers to shows like Eternity, Camp Cuddly Pines, All About Keri, Sold, Curse Eternal, But I'm With The Band, and others.

Audio/Video Quality: I'm A Tease was presented in a 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Mark Stone for Wicked Pictures. The lighting was good, limiting the grain and video noise as well as the shadows. The composition of the shots enhanced the look of the ladies in most cases although I wanted the scenes to last a lot longer. In all, the visual appeal of the movie was decent with no glaring problems. The audio was offered up with the standard choices for Wicked Pictures; a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English track, or a 2.0 track in either German or Spanish. I spot checked the foreign language dubs and found them to be okay if nothing special. The 5.1 track was fair though I believe the vocals were recorded in monaural with the music score added in later on in perhaps a 2.0 mix (there wasn't much separation between the channels) though it didn't get in the way of the vocals.
Body of Review: Mark Stone is best known for his work as a talented director of Behind the Scenes features at Wicked Pictures (and maybe for his status as a musician) but he also makes the occasional movie as well. His latest movie is I'm A Tease, a series of six lengthy vignettes where the gals tease the camera, masturbate, and then take care of a partner for your viewing pleasure. It wasn't fancy but it was well shot and edited with a solid cast of cuties for your stroking pleasure. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that the guys wore condoms as per Wicked Pictures policy:
Scene One: Marie Luv, the tall, lean black gal was dressed up in neon pink lingerie that enhanced her look and she spent a lot of time teasing the camera and masturbate before Tony Tedeschi joined her. Fans of gals that jill themselves before a scene will have a field day with this one and her dirty talk was appreciated as much as her ability to jam toys in her two holes to stretch them out (though why she'd need to for Tony's modest size is beyond me). He walked in on her and knelt beside the couch to go down on her, spending most of his focus on rimming her ass. She then gave him an aggressive blowjob as she sucked, jerked, licked, and otherwise manipulated the small shaft to readiness before they screwed vaginally and anally. The problem with the screwing was that she was way over the top with the vocals (completely unbelievable) and that she let him do all the work. She tried to save the scene by jerking him off onto her face but it was too little, too late to do so.
Scene Two: Mia Bangg, also wearing lingerie as she followed the formula on the couch, was up next as she talked her way through the scene much like Marie did. I could've done without the religious stained glass window behind her but she's a gal that is uninhibited, lending her skills to the title action (teasing) in a decent manner. I hated her make up but she came across as more into the action than Marie, not usually needing to fake it to convince the audience as she took care of business. The toy use was okay as well but her strength was more along the lines of her active romp with scene partner Manuel Ferrara. The two shared some chemistry together from the moment he walked in on her until the last drop of splooged hit her face. He ate her out well enough, she returned the favor as she inhaled his massive cock (stretching her limits), and the two boned like they were long lost lovers. There was no anal but there didn't have to be as she seemed quite at home with him tapping that sweet little pussy of hers. Her reward for a good act was the facial, enjoying it all the way.
Scene Three: Holly Wellin, a hotty with an all natural body and English accent, was up next on the medieval bed as she followed the formula. She was getting particularly juicy when she pulled out an old fashioned vibrator, banging it deep inside her to prepare for the scene with stately Randy Spears. He spent some time teasing her, in a turn about of the theme, slowly enhancing the mood more than the others had done with their straightforward performances. The way he took his time made far more sense and came closest to the idea I had when reading the DVD cover. My only gripe was that her blowjob was so short compared to how much time he spent on her though the vaginal ride could've been a bit more passionate too. She did get into the ride midway through, with him fingering her ass as she bounced on his cock, and the ending pop shot sealed the deal for me.
Scene Four: Jasmine Tame, a curvy gal with a great looking porn face, and the talented Hillary Scott, were up next in a lesbian scene that started off with the two masturbating side by side in chairs by the large wooden dining room table. This led to some licking, sucking and diddling with toys as the two showed how lesbian sex is supposed to be. They did get over the top at times but some of it was believable (especially during the rimming) and the scene was a nice counterpoint to the standard action of the movie (mixing it up makes for more fun). Hillary's ability to take a large vibrator up her ass and wield a strap on dildo with passion also made this a hot scene, especially when she took Jasmine's ass in doggy.
Scene Five: Candy Manson, an enthusiastic bleach blonde with huge breasts and some fine curves, was up next as she teased, masturbated and then had the rest of the scene with the mighty Evan Stone. Her slutty fetishware was hot on her body and she knows how to turn on the heat when given the chance. She was another one who knew how to give a sultry blowjob, slowly working him over to get him hard enough to cut diamonds. I really appreciated that the oral was longer this time (of course, so was he) and while she wasn't as active in deploying dirt talk, she was an active participant of the scene when it came to bouncing on his cock; with the only way to make the scene better being if she was the one to jerk him off to completion in her mouth.
Scene Six: Faith, a gal with a cross between a stripper and girl next door type of face, was up last as she followed the formula for the camera. The vibrator was weird looking and green but she managed to keep up the dirty talk as she diddled herself on the couch until Chris Cannon magically appeared with her lips wrapped around his dick. It was less of a tease blowjob than a full out oral assault on his manhood, almost as if she were trying to get him off in record time rather than slowly tease him as most of the others did in their respective scenes. She gave an active vaginal ride when she was on top and it wasn't a bad scene to close out with. She's another hotty that I've noticed a lot of lately and I hope she lives up to her potential given her performances in scenes like this one.
Summary: I'm A Tease was exactly what it advertised itself as; a porn flick full of tease and completion. As such, the DVD was worth a rating of Recommended though the extras, technical qualities, and strength of the cast all assisted in ranking it that highly. Mark may never aspire to being one of the hotshot contract directors of big budget features like others at Wicked Pictures but his niche as a BTS guy alone makes him a very special asset to the company and I hope he continues to expand his creative boundaries with movies such as this one.
