Audio/Video Quality: All By My Self was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as directed by Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel. The fleshtones were fairly accurate, the lighting decent, with the visual flaws like grain and video noise about average, thanks in part to the camera work by William H. Nutsack and Dr. Philgood. The composition of the camera angles was almost always the best in terms of making the gals look great even if some scenes were designed around a pervert peeper that didn't work as well. Patrick has made better looking titles in the recent past but he did manage to handle the thematic elements better than most seem able to do, spending the kind of time needed to make the scenarios work on a deeper level. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo audio was in English though more basic in most ways than expected with little separation and limited dynamic range but it didn't get in the way of the heat when it appeared in the action either. Some of the audio mixing was on the light end, needing to be ramped up to be heard, but at least the music wasn't as invasive as in some movies by others these days.

Body of Review: Patrick Collins has been the head guy at Elegant Angel forever now, almost selling out awhile back but thankfully sticking with the jizz biz and making a comeback. His latest release is a fetish flick called All By Myself (or All By My Self depending on who you believe), a female masturbation movie much like rival Third Degree's All Alone. The entire movie was made up of a variety of super appealing women masturbating and teasing the camera, providing superior stroke value along the way. If this is the kind of action you like, you'd be hard pressed to find a better set of scenes and extras. That said, here's a look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no men or condoms were used here:
Scene One: Samantha Ryan, a lean and very cute blonde with bad taste in boyfriends, was up first as she played with herself in the bathroom in front of the mirror. The blinds to the outdoors were open and she took her time putting on lipstick, undies, and shoes before moving to the living room to slowly caress her body. The thumping music stopped by the time she undressed again and started drilling herself with the large aqua colored vibrator, looking very much like she was getting off on the couch before the abrupt edit showed her going for round two in the over lit bathroom with a pocket rocket of some sort from Doc Johnson and foot fetish action to boot.
Scene Two: Mia, a smiling little hotty who was in the hotel room (forgetting her name and calling herself Paula), was in the room in Prague as she gave a short interview by William involving nonsensical questions. The tease footage ruled this time as her perfect ass was driving me crazy even with her clothing still on; her attitude showing him what she wanted to do rather than act like a groupie like the others. I liked the change of pace and her solo action outside of the tease was pretty decent though too short for my general tastes. It involved another pocket rocket and a flesh colored dildo, resulting in her getting very wet.
Scene Three: Cayton Caley, the beauty on the front DVD cover, was up next as she kicked back in the living room to watch some television in her blue jeans and black top, finding a stash of porn and toys in the top drawer of the night table (she was babysitting). She provided a very appealing scene as she engaged herself with the toy, making me want to see a lot more of her (I think she was in Control 5 too). The toys really appeared to work wonders for her and she was very wet (but not the fake kind as in most scenes) before she climaxed a second or third time.
Scene Four: Jamie Lynn, another hotty with red hair this time, was up next in a bikini in the fountain as she splashed water on herself to the light tones of music. There was a lot of tease and she eventually started using the water jet to get off, leading to more toys to satisfy her needs even more. The scene was short but the camera work was more intimate this time, making it a solid scene to enjoy repeatedly.
Scene Five: Suzie Carina, a gorgeous gal with pretty eyes and an all natural, lean body, was up next as she stripped off her clothing in a knowing manner, rubbing herself as she did so to the music. The action after that with the small vibrator was limited but she appeared to be having fun, especially once the large dildo was lubed up for her pleasure. She slowly stroked it and eyed the camera in a knowing fashion, acting like she was jerking off the audience at home before drilling herself with it.
Scene Six: Anastasia Pierce, one of the more interesting gals I met at the 2007 AEE Show, was up next as she dressed in a fetish cop outfit in a jailhouse scene. She addressed the audience as she gave her website information, telling the viewers that she appreciated their letters from Iraq before she started working herself over before the camera. Her ample curves were very fetching and I can see why so many guys find her desirable, from her busty chest to her fleshy ass, with a lot of slow tease to really make the scene work. The toy work was also exceptional and the scene became a highlight for me to appreciate repeatedly.
Scene Seven: Monic, a gal with pretty blue eyes and a nice figure, seemed more ready made for the innocent look than the last hotty, wearing a short white dress as she gyrated before the camera. Her tease was the best thing about her scene although I have to admit that I thought she gave the appearance of getting off too with the various toys she employed.
Scene Eight: Paulina James, a hot young newcomer to porn, was up last as she wrote in her diary on the bed while dressed as a schoolgirl. The flowery finery marking the bedroom as that of a teenager and her entire outfit appealed to me as she wrote dirty thoughts down, eventually rubbing herself as if she got off on the writing alone. This seemed to be the longest scene of the movie and she used an awful lot of toys to full advantage, making it a wonderful scene for her dirty vocals as much as anything she did to get herself off vibrator wise. In all, it was a great ending to a very solid set of scenes for me.
Bonus Scene One: Aneta, a gal in the Czech Republic in what started off like a Doc Johnson commercial, was introduced by director Patrick Collins who stoked up on her before she started masturbating. The scene 1asted 12 minutes and her limited knowledge of English added a humor element, her coming twice by my count as she masturbated with the toys.
Bonus Scene Two: Stacy, a curvier gal with an almost albino look to her, was up next outside as she rubbed herself by some steps. The tease and solo work led to her spreading olive oil on herself, with the action lasting about 20.5 minutes. It wasn't as connected as some of the other scenes but I liked the way she performed and wouldn't mind seeing her again.
Summary: All By My Self as directed by Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel was clearly a winner for fans of ladies getting off. I know porn is full of hype but I believed that the ladies were truly having orgasms, making the marketing claim on the front cover "100% Real Female Orgasms" seem plausible, if not the actual case in each scene. Thanks to a nice diversity of performers and their various means of getting off, I felt a rating of Highly Recommended was fair since All By My Self provided exactly what it said and in such a high quality manner that Patrick proved his talents yet again. Good job!
