Slut Puppies 2: 2 Disc Special Edition

Jules Jordan Video

Genre: Gonzo

Director: Jules Jordan

Cast: Amy Ried, Jean Val Jean, Mia Rose, Steve Holmes, Sasha Grey, Chris Charming, Sunny Lane, Jules Jordan, Teagan Presley, Jules Jordan, Kara Mynor, Mark Wood

Length: 205 minutes

Date of Production: 10/3/2006

Extra's: The best extra was easily the 30 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed some of the cast having extra fun before, during, and after their scenes (Jules' BTS footage is always heavy on additional sex though so don't expect a lot of watching the ladies put on make up and stuff). Fans will enjoy seeing the ladies when they weren't acting so much (they were more natural when they felt the main feature wasn't shooting) and it started with Teagan, ended with Amy, and had the rest of the ladies in between (mostly). The cool thing about it was how the aspect ratio was matched to the movie (it was clear that the first disc's scenes were shot in widescreen with the BTS showing those scenes caught as such, with the second disc's full frame nature shown too-it wasn't a mastering problem). There were also trailers to Weapons of Ass Destruction 5, Flesh Hunter 9, Breast Worship, Ass Worship, Jenna Haze: Dark Side, Black Owned, Feeding Frenzy 8, Weapons of Ass Destruction 4, and Tunnel Vision, a photogallery, a partial cast list, a Jules Jordan biography, a 7.5 minute cumshot recap, and some links to websites.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Slut Puppies 2: 2 Disc Special Edition was presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen (yay!) AND 1.33:1 ratio full frame as originally shot by director Jules Jordan for distribution by his own company, Jules Jordan Video. The older scene starring Teagan Presley was obviously (and understandably) shot in full frame so I can't fuss too loudly at Jules for keeping the original aspect ratio but it's still a jarring change once the first few hours are handled so much nicer. The lighting was presented in a very pleasing manner that lit up the action in the scenes very well, limiting the grain and video noise a lot, and I appreciate that the anamorphic processing was employed on the widescreen scenes for those of us in the growing legion of HD and widescreen TV's to appreciate. There were a few scenes where things weren't quite as good but that was almost certainly due to the skill level of the talent given Jules' manner of coaxing out fine performances from almost everyone. So, in the scenes where the lighting was flat and stronger; the picture was as good as anything from Jules that I've watched to date and the minor tint or other issues were decidedly not worth worrying about. The grain and video noise were both lots better than usual; marking another positive visual improvement by Jules that was complimented by the compositional work Jules offered up that repeatedly enhanced the look of the cast. There were no noticed compression artifacts and while the picture wasn't the best gonzo I've seen; it was better than I expected, especially Teagan's scene. I still wonder what future releases using one of the true high definition formats (Blu-Ray or HD-DVD) will do for the quality of the picture given his recent improvements over past works though. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Jules could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theatres in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Body of Review: Jules Jordan is considered a leading force in gonzo porn these day, now distributing the works of others at Jules Jordan Video. He had humble beginnings and rose through the ranks by listening to the fans, proving that a responsive company will make money in even the harshest of economic times (the reported porn slump of 2006 was as much due to the product dumping on the market as bootlegs and down loaders, no matter what you hear). I haven't seen many of his older works but what I have seen leads me to believe that Jules has grown by leaps and bounds in his work, never more clearly in evidence then in his recent release of Slut Puppies 2: 2 Disc Special Edition, the sequel to the well received Slut Puppies 1. I say this because the movie contained a scene with uber hotty Teagan Presley taken from a few years back; perhaps her last before going under contract to Digital Playground. This provided the means to compare the older work and newer work without the digital manipulations of the material as done in many recent compilations to smooth over differences. In short, his anamorphically enhanced new scenes are so much better in terms of lighting, composition, and even his ability to get the best performances out of the ladies that I'm less willing to shell out the money to go back to his roots and see what the fuss was all about (maybe if he reduces the price a bunch like the mainstream world does, I'll consider it). In this case, every scene was good or better, some reaching outstanding status, though the puppy theme was only truly employed once. Here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used, not even with Teagan:

Scene One: Amy Ried, the hotty featured on the lower middle of the front DVD cover, was up first in her white fishnet top and tiny thong that left nothing to the imagination. The lighting was slightly lower then normal, giving her a slightly red haze about her but she knew how to masturbate and tease well enough that I hope she returns to porn some day soon. Her partner for the scene was studly pretty boy Jean Val Jean, a guy that many argue is the best looking guy in porn (and notable for not acting like he knows it), and the sparks flew right out of the gate this time. He went down on her front and back, savoring the taste of her body as she offered it up to him; purring her acceptance so very nicely before unbuttoning his pants and going down on him in return. She worked his meat pipe like a virtuoso, generally leaving her hands off of it as she gave him pleasure. He then took her from behind and started hammering away like he was possessed by the spirit of Erik Everhard, with her pushing back on him in return. The living room setting was kind of tame but she was an active ride throughout the scene, switching positions and doing all the usual tricks to make the scene especially hot. The scene lasted about thirty minutes and her cookie was getting rubbed red and puffy by the ending facial; no anal offered or needed this time. The two shared some chemistry and approached the scene with enthusiasm; making it a winner from start to finish and starting the movie out really well.

Scene Two: Mia Rose, the cutie on the upper left hand corner of the cover, wore a white fishnet top complemented by a pink PVC fetish corset as she followed instructions to tease the camera. She sat on the stairs as she masturbated, showing her skills as she readied for the scene with Steve Holmes. He had a leather device attached to the base of his cock and she merrily sucked away on it as though it were her favorite thing to do, not showing the level of heat that Amy displayed but providing enough skill that it was clear she was in charge and knew what she was doing. He returned the oral favor on her when they moved to the bed, banging her pussy like a maniac in a few positions as she cried out about the depth. It didn't last long though since she seemed prepared to do anal, a lot of anal at that, and acted like she was getting off while doing so. Her dirty talk and active anal action merited some attention before the ending facial coated her with the amount of taste testing before the camera faded away on her pretty eyes. It was another sweet scene and I can see why see too is up for some awards next month.

Scene Three: Sasha Grey, the attractive brunette barely seen on the upper middle of the front cover in the black top with white dots, looking younger and leaner then the rest of the cast as Jules made her bark and fetch like a dog as part of the tease footage. He degraded her further by handcuffing her to the toilet and making her lick the bowl, soon giving her a bone of her own in the form of Chris Charming. While this kind of thing really didn't work for me, at least it looked like someone had just cleaned the toilet moments before so it didn't kill all heat for me, moving to her begging for his cock as the theme continued. Deepthroating Chris is not an easy thing to do but she seemed quite capable of handling him orally, slobbing his knob like an expert before vaginally riding him with a decidedly less capacity. She worked him hard though and just as she seemed to get used to it, she took him anally (after the PTM of course), doing some stretching with toys on the bed. It wasn't easy for her but she cranked up the vocals to the extreme as he tore into her rapidly, showing that she was pushing her limits more then the others did, even if her skill level wasn't as great. There was plenty of ATM and she took the facial after some footjob and handjob action. In all, while she wasn't my favorite gal of the show, she did an excellent job of using everything she had with the guy before swallowing every drop.

Scene Four: Sunny Lane, the hot babe on the upper right hand corner wearing red PVC lingerie that did nothing to cover her as she teased outside on the sunny day, was extremely playful in her scene before doing Jules Jordan himself. She has never struck me as the type to do gonzo with a guy like Jules (especially given her success with features) but I'd be misleading you to suggest she provided any less quality of action in her scene starting by the pool. The camera work was so sharp that you could see the tiny ass hairs she missed when shaving and her fleshy behind looked most promising as they headed inside the house. I would've liked to see them do it outside since the superior lighting of the sun is virtually always better but she proved to handle the master very nicely as she walked into the living room after some minor masturbation action. He worked her well in terms of spanking her and rubbing his cock on her cheeks, the tease continuing throughout the scene in such a manner that I wish I had seen the two of them engage in more action together in the past. This was a lot better than I thought it would be and she showed her skill level was far greater than many directors have captured, from the oral to the pounding penetration that took place. The face sitting alone was worth dropping some loads but she was aggressively impaling her pussy on his rod, showing that anal wasn't necessary to put on a wonderfully hot show. She took the mouth pop well and they shared some magic together that I really did not expect. Sweet!

Scene Five: Teagan Presley, the beautiful gal on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up next as she pranced about in an incredibly hot pink outfit as shown. It struck me immediately that the scene was in full frame and ever so slightly out of focus but this was the Teagan of old; well before her contract days claimed her but looking every bit as cute as I remember her. Before I go too far into the description, I was not one of her slavering fanboys when this was shot as her early work left much to be desired in most ways (many of the scenes that fans claim to be her best showed her as passive, unskilled, and essentially boring unless you have the need to dominate a tiny gal and make her do lots of depraved things). I've gone back to watch some of her first scenes and my opinion hasn't changed that she looks better now and acts better now but I'm sure not going to deny that a substantial number of you with find her older stuff preferable to the erotica scenes she tends to prefer nowadays (a little of that goes a very long way with me too) so I examined this scene with Jules Jordan as closely as I could to see whether he might have captured her essence better than most did back then. It was clear that his (and his assistants) technical skills have grown substantially since making this one by comparing the scenes from the first disc but the youthful Teagan had that unpolished look and skill level that some find refreshing. Her raw sexuality was present and while she wasn't as skilled at displaying it (to be fair, Jules wasn't as skilled at capturing it as he would be nowadays either), the domination of her by Jules (truly starting with the fur lined handcuffs and blindfold) wasn't bad. The toy use and oral were a little forced; Teagan had the basics down but not the experience to pull it off as well as she could currently. She was also largely passive during the penetrative sex, the anal even looking like it hurt her (the grimace on her face hung around longer than I felt comfortable with) and the technical DP was way down the list of her best work, ending with her jerking him off on her face. My assessment of the scene stands that her later work is better but she was a trooper and took everything he dished out at her better than average but still showing how far BOTH of them have come in terms of their screen presence and talent.

Scene Six: Kara Mynor, the cute gal on the cover in white lingerie seen on the cover near the "U" of the Puppies part of the title, was up last as she played dress up for Jules in the house. Her body looked better in action than on the cover and she seemed to have the polished skill level of a long time house dancer at a mid tier strip club as she put it to work. Her eyes were appealing too but her level of polish was a stark contrast to the last scene as she seemed very comfortable with her body doing everything he put her up to. Her all natural body seemed to appeal to Jules but he provided Mark Wood and Chris Charming to do the honors here; her way of punishing him for being mean to her in some way. She was an aggressive cocksucker with a lot of experience by the looks of it and she seemed to enjoy getting eaten out before the men took turns poking her perfect pussy. She seemed very comfortable with the basics here, thankfully not jumping the shark and doing more then she could handle as many gals in the industry seem pressured to do. She wasn't the most active ride of the flick but she was working a cock in her mouth at almost all times as the other tapped her pussy, with some breaks for dirty talk tossed in for good measure. It ended with a couple of doses of population pudding covering her face, providing some strokable material many will relish.

Summary: Slut Puppies 2: 2 Disc Special Edition by director Jules Jordan for his company, Jules Jordan Video, was another title worthy of his legacy as he provided some superior quality AND quantity of fuck for the buck with a nice showcase of his advances in technical skills complimented by the cast of lovely ladies, not least of which was Teagan. There are few gonzo companies in the same league as JJV and titles like Slut Puppies 2: 2 Disc Special Edition show why his ascension up the ladder of the porn pantheon is not yet complete but he continues to leave many in his wake as he evolves. In all then, this DVD set was worth a rating of Highly Recommended or better for raincoaters and fans of gonzo that subscribe to the notion that more is better as well as better is better in what is sure to be a top seller. Great work!
