Extras: So far, the releases by Vouyer Media have had some splendid extras and this DVD was no exception to that rule. The first thing on the disc was a 25 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that had the ladies and some of the crew before, during and after their scenes. The extra nudity and sex was welcome but the sense of fun on the set was also documented better than average. This was followed by a 10 minute blowjob scene by Rebecca Steel working over Vince Vouyer. She has been in a MILF title or two that I recall yet proved to be worth more than most such scenes for the amount of heat the couple had (it was labeled bonus core for those keeping track). There were also three interviews taken after the scenes of the main female performers; ranging from about 6 to 7.5 minutes in length each. There was a lengthy section of pictures, a true double sided DVD cover, and the attractive cardboard slipcase the company has been using since opening their doors.

Audio/Video Quality: The Gauntlet 2 was presented in a anamorphic widescreen color with an approximate aspect ratio of 1.85:1 as shot by director Vince Vouyer for his brand new company, Vouyer Media. The lighting was not flat and even like his previous work at Red Light District and Platinum X Pictures but it was still substantially better than that which you'll find in most gonzo porn. There was little grain and the fleshtones were better this time making me think that the HD picture might look even better on one of the newer high resolution formats. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look as good as Vince could make them, and given his level of skill developed over the years, he showed he still has what it takes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English but there was no separation between the channels and the vocals were on the low side in all but a few circumstances (at which times they were too loud of course).
Body of Review: Mention the name Vince Vouyer and you'll likely get a mixed reaction from fans of porn with most appreciating the skills he has honed in front and behind the camera. He practically made his last company and while they are off doing different things, it was always a sure bet that he'd land on his feet and provide some new kinks as only he could do. His latest flick for his brand new company is The Gauntlet 2, the sequel to The Gauntlet 1, where a trio of ladies were led from room to room in a large house in order to fuck and suck; the main point being to swallow as much semen as possible. If you like swallowing, you're going to love this flick, so here's a brief look at the movie, noting that no condoms were used in the scenes:
Scene One: Riley Mason, the brunette on the front DVD cover and all around cutie, was up first as she was led through the house after giving the initial interview on the pink comfy chair. She masturbated, claimed to be 20 years old, from North Carolina, and a gal that likes to fuck. The outfit on the cover was worn and she filled it out nicely as she teased and said she wanted to "walk the gauntlet". Vince sampled her wares first, feeling her up, fingering her, and finding out what a quality cocksucker she could be as she made lots of noises to slurp him up like a champion. She used dirty talk as he boned her tight pussy, actively riding his rod as he hammered her soundly. That was her first load swallowed and then came the gauntlet with Aaliyah Jolie assisting her as a fluffer and the tag team trio of Steve Taylor, Billy Glide, and Mark Zane, providing the follow up meat. They fucked the gals (Aaliyah doing anal & DP and Riley doing vaginal) as they sucked a lot of cocks with the count to 4 loads swallowed. The next five guys were rejects from the mope squad, not even getting second tier status as they spanked her, offered up meat for sucking, and circled her for the blowbang. This brought the count up to 9 loads swallowed and she was still looking fresher than many of her peers.
Scene Two: Alexa Lynn, a skinny redheaded gal from Texas in a yellow outfit with black trim, was up next as she asked Vince to "treat her like a dirty whore". Like Riley, she had a nice ass but didn't want to use it, deciding to walk the gauntlet orally but also riding a few cocks in her pussy. Vince noticed her pretty blue eyes but left the scene as a surprise for her to discover. She gave the interview, did some tease, and was soon led to a room containing five of the black mope squad members. They were given permission to have some fun so they took care of her by spanking her ass and offering up their big dicks for sucking. She was playful with them, showing a taste for dark meat and everyone using dirty talk to juice up the action. She even played a selection game known as "eenie minnie mini moe" to select whose dick she suck down next, teasing them as the guys fingered her from behind. She did get a little vaginal action before swallowing five loads. She was then led to the next room with four white men, including Kyle Stone, Brad Baldwin, and two third stringers, who all did her on the nice pool table. This was a blowbang only with no penetration although the throatfucking should have been enough for them the way she actively inhaled cock. Nine loads down and more to go for her as she was then brought to another room containing seven more men; including Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Scotty Lyons, Dick Nasty, and Mike Hash. She busted a few balls with her attitude but ultimately, they repaid her in kind by giving her a lot of dick to suck messily, giving her 16 wads sucked down altogether.
Scene Three: Gwen Diamond, a gal with an attractive body, pleasing face, and firm 19 year old body, was last up as she gave Vince an interview. Saying she had done about 25 scenes in her two months but also admitting to liking swallowing (yet no anal at this time). She masturbated with some toys and then went to the bathroom where she met a moper to do in POV fashion. She sucked and fucked with him, inhaling his load to start the ball rolling, moving to a little BDSM scene starring Kelly Kline and Sandra Romain in the next room. They were wearing strap on dildos and worked her over very heatedly as they yelled, slapped, and screwed her like she was theirs to abuse. I wasn't expecting any lesbian action, especially this kind of lesbian action, and it was certainly a hot bit of work by the trio even if it didn't count towards the load score. They kicked her out to meet a bunch of four guys, including Randy Spears, Chris Charming, and Sergio; each of whom screwed her mouth and pussy like she was indebted to them. Like the other leads of the movie, she was an aggressive cocksucker who seemed at home sucking off large numbers of men, with the men circling around her to give her what she needed from them to swallow down. This brought the count up to five loads. She then went to the pool table room and found five more guys, blow banging them to get another four loads and finishing up with nine loads swallowed; the movie totaling 34 loads (what happened to the odd moper in this scene though, I couldn't say for sure.
Summary: The Gauntlet 2 showed the world that The Gauntlet 1 was no fluke for director Vince Vouyer in that it showed innovation, lots of heat, and a quality female cast augmented by a large number of mope squad members to donate their seed to a worthy cause. I'm not really into the blowbang concept like some of you are so feel free to adjust my rating but it was definitely worthy of at least a Recommended in my book, and probably more if you enjoy seeing large quantities of men get head to orgasm from attractive young ladies.
