Extras: The length of the movie and the fact that it was strictly a POV blowjob movie contributed to why the DVD had minimal extras but in fairness to the director, the amount of suck for the buck was extremely high here and the extras weren't as big a factor as his older titles that were much shorter (he assured me that his movies would be more value oriented at the 2006 AEE Show and he has kept his word so far). There was a photogallery, cumshot recap, some limited filmographies, and trailers to movies including Bodacious Booty, Suck It Dry 2, Angels of Debauchery 5 and Girls Love Girls.

Audio/Video Quality: Load Sharing was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was made in by director Jonni Darkko for distribution by Evil Angel. The scenes were all done at least partially in POV (point of View) fashion as though the viewer had his lap up to the gal's mouths. This was mixed up a little bit (primarily the scenes where it was clearly Mark Ashley getting blown) but the mix of styles helped make the scenes more fun to enjoy. None of them looked bad but the lighting of such scenes is decidedly more difficult to get right than a typical porno and there were some flaws because of it. There were shadows and some grain with a bit of awkward camera movement that you'd expect from anyone getting his knob slobbed while he balanced the camera. There were times that the focus would be off or some minor pattern noise would appear but I saw no compression artifacts and my general assessment of the DVD was slightly favorable in terms of picture quality. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English audio was very basic with no separation between the channels and limited dynamic range but you could hear what was said if that works for you, including all the sloppy blowjob noises found in gonzo porn.
Body of Review: Jonni Darkko has long been known as one of the most honest "nice guys" in porn that people always seem to say nice things about. His skill level since moving over to Evil Angel has increased substantially and his eye for beauty and action impresses me from time to time because he tries new things but stays fairly close to what he knows works. His latest release is a DVD called Load Sharing where each scene has two hotties sucking him or Mark Ashley off and then cumswapping the load before swallowing it down. The men kept quiet to instill the sense of fantasy where you can believe that you're in the driver's seat with few slip ups in terms of showing their faces. I'm not a cock expert but it looked like Jonni's cock in the majority of scenes, so if you want to confirm this, email him but I'd bet a handshake on my assessment given past works. He does a decent job with the ladies and the mixture of many different styles of cocksucking made for a lot of replay value in the scenes. Here's a quick look at the highlights by female cast but keep in mind that the nuances are best left for your own imaginations:
Scene One: Roxy Jezel and Tory Lane were up first as they sucked off Mark Ashley and then Jonni Darkko (Jonni did not credit himself but the same long, modest girth cock was used in all the scenes and my gut instinct without getting weird and comparing, is to say that like almost all his previous efforts, he used his own cock to provide the oral focal point). Both gals proved to be excellent cocksuckers, and milked the loads nicely in a sort of contest, finishing up by sharing the loads as advertised.
Scene Two: Haley Scott and Jamie Huxley were up next as they did the deed, using a stainless steel bowl instead of the brandy snifter used in the first scene to drink of Jonni Darkko's ejaculate.
Scene Three: Nadia Styles and Sativa Rose proved to be 420 friendly by sparking up a spliffy with each other before choking down on the cock of Jonni Darkko. I suppose their lack of skill at getting a good buzz should be taken as a positive thing, as in they weren't particularly experienced with the illegal cancer stick. The good news was that they were much more skilled with the meat stick, handily gobbling up his load after impaling their throats on his shaft like there was no tomorrow.
Scene Four: Flower Tucci and Georgia Peach, a couple of booty-licious hotties were next to suck off Jonni Darkko. Flower was the dominant partner of the scene but Georgia had her moments of glee too. It was playful in all ways and the dirty talk enhanced the moment more than a little bit though I wish they had tackled him in a complete scene instead.
Scene Five: Joey and Julia Bond, two of the most attractive cuties of the show were up next with the hairy dick of Mark Ashley. I'm a big fan of Julia and thought she was the best but Joey showed her skills to be quite capable as well when they double teamed his cock and balls so thoroughly.
Scene Six: Hillary Scott and Leah Luv took care of Jonni Darkko next but to me, Hillary was the best at stepping up to the mike and singing her oral song. Leah without anal is like Wonder Woman without her golden lasso and bracelets so she was not at her very best here (except in cumswapping abilities). It was a large load for Hillary but she handled it well.
Scene Seven: Adrianna Nicole and the beautiful Jasmine Tame were next with Jonni Darkko. They shared and even gave him a titty fuck but spent more time sucking his balls than probably any other scene.
Scene Eight: Jayna Oso and Mya Luanna were two of the most exotic looking gals of the show, though I admit to having a warm spot for Jayna that goes way back (it's called my face!) so when they started off with some titty sucking lesbian action, I was hopeful that they might get in some extra sex acts but found they settled for blowing Jonni Darkko instead. It was a good suck but I wanted more after that initial tease.
Scene Nine: Velicity Von and Candy Mason were the ninth team to play in the movie, showing their sweet curves and fishnet outfits off really well as they pawed each other. The tease would've been enough for me but their oral skills were pretty solid too with Jonni Darkko getting some titty fuck action as a bonus.
Scene Ten: Arcadia Davida and Victoria Sweet, another semi-exotic couple of cuties, were up last as they smoked the meat pipe of Jonni Darkko. There was some hand to gland action but the driving theme of the scene was always the oral and while they weren't the best cocksuckers of the cast, they seemed to benefit from lots of experience.
Summary: Load Sharing was another oral themed DVD presented by director Jonni Darkko that worked well for me. I actually reviewed it in groups of several hummers each in order to keep it fresh for me but some of you horndogs might try and sit through all the scenes at once. If you do, I think you'll find the irresistible urge to whip out your own cock and start tossing off but that's why I'm rating the movie as Recommended. The levels of suck for the buck were very high, the quality of ladies top notch, and if you're really into the oral only nature of the movie, you'll probably think of rating it even higher than I did. In all then, Jonni Darkko seemed to provide another sweet release for fans of the oral genre with Load Sharing that fans of cumswapping will hold up as an example of great directing.
