Extra's: The best extra was the 26.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by hotty Francesca Le. It included some photoshoot but most of the time was devoted to interviews with anecdotes about life in porn by the ladies. Mark was working the still camera much of the time, when not directing or performing that is, and it amounted to a solid extra for the fans. My biggest complaint was that there was no footage of Maya Hills, though I appreciated that Dana had plenty of air time here. There was a photogallery, a pop shot compilation, and a double sided DVD cover (only showing other covers though) but the BTS was clearly the best extra of the limited batch, by far.
Audio/Video Quality: I've Been Sodomized #2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Mark Wood for Red Light District. The lighting was generally good and that helped keep the grain, video noise, and other flaws to a minimum. The fleshtones were accurate and the camera work was generally good with the composition of the shots enhancing the ladies' looks most of the time. There were no compression artifacts or significant shadows to contend with so I found the picture appealing (as will most people that like solid, flat, lighting as RLD is generally known for providing) and acknowledge both of the crew working the camera, Francesca and Mark, for doing a fine job. The audio was nothing special although encoded in 2.0 Dolby Digital English. The processing done in post production aside, the vocals were seemingly recorded in monaural and the music not a big factor so it wasn't a problem but it wasn't anything worth extra points either. In all, I wasn't surprised by the quality of the technical attributes of the movie but I wasn't expecting Mark to drop the ball either given the number of titles he has been making for various companies of late.

Body of Review: Mark Wood has been performing in porn for a long time and is one of the few male performers in recent years to make the transition to director fairly seamlessly. The quality of his work is far more consistent than his peers and much of his current work is for Red Light District. In their 461st DVD, I've Been Sodomized #2, the sequel to I've Been Sodomized 1, Mark and friends put some very appealing ladies through their paces with anal sex in the gonzo format most viewers are accustomed with these days. One of Mark's strengths as a director is his love of shooting tease footage for his movies, catering to a lot of us like-minded folks, and the ability to allow the cast to enjoy themselves as they get lost in their scenes. These were all displayed very appealingly in the movie, making it well worth checking out. If you're still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Lexi Love, wearing hot pink bikini undies and matching fishnets, was a wise choice to go first as she had the kind of lean body that men love, along with a pleasing face made for enticing a load out. The music during the tease was lame but I've come to expect that and she made it a point to emphasize her shapely ass for the camera before Mark Wood took over to give her a bone of his own. Initially, she pierced her perfect pucker with a large glass dildo, using her saliva (with ATM) to lube it up for repeated penetration. Mark took over and used the toy on her too but quickly took it out to pop her pussy as she yelled out her approval. This led to her blowing him, savoring her own juices as she aggressively slurped his rod; leaving streamers in her wake. He went back to boning her cookie but it wasn't long before they swapped holes and he was tapping that ass, He pounded her hard and it took her awhile to compensate but she handled him very well in her tight little ass, actively bouncing on it when she was on top while making those little noises she likes to make as he porked her. It ended when he busted a nut on her ass cheeks and lower back, beginning the movie nicely.
Scene Two: Dana DeArmond, the internet queen that I picked up the DVD to see, was up next as she showed off her fleshy ass on a brown couch while barely wearing her black top and see through light green panties. The tease portion showed that Mark wanted to work with her but had to live vicariously through Mr. Pete as he snacked on her crack before presenting her with a little toy that flashed a red light (to symbolize her star status no doubt). With that, he panties came down to give him an unadulterated glimpse and taste of her ass, which she rewarded with some superior oral skills of her own afterwards. A lot of the warm up at this point consisted of her titty fucking his cock, moving to the actual penetration soon thereafter. I enjoyed the way he poked her ass crack without penetrating the holes as I know how erotic that can be with more oral still before the screwing. This was not Dana's most active anal romp by a long shot but she eventually warmed up enough to actively impale herself on his cock as he slapped her with her belt. He further used it to tie her hands behind her back while pounding her ass, eventually ending the scene by jerking off to her open anal gape. It was a heated scene that showed her solid skills, providing lots of stroke value worth getting the DVD for.
Scene Three: Isabella, a gal next door brunette with a lean body, was up next as she performed a little lap dance action for Mick Blue and Sascha in her skimpy red lingerie. While not exactly the hottest gal of the flick, she had some great moves during the tease that indicated to me how much experience she probably had as a stripper (exotic dancer if it makes you happy). That included slobbing their knobs and aggressively riding their cocks in numerous positions, eventually doing some DP work too. To her credit, she handled the DP like a seasoned veteran as she pushed back on their dicks like she was having fun, yelling out repetitive phrases ("oh", "yeah", and the like), making the scene a lot better than I thought it was going to be at first. I know the middle scene of a gonzo flick is supposed to be a filler but this was anything but, even if not up to the quality of the previous scenes in the movie, maintaining the heat and strokability factors in the process. It ended with both men jerking off loads of population pudding into her mouth for swallowing, showing this gal is certainly in the right career.
Scene Four: Aline, a fetching young lady with a nice set of curves and an ass worth talking about, was up next as she teased and posed on the outdoor balcony on a sunny day. She was wearing very little; a dark bra and panty set with purple fishnets, and told the camera "come with me" as she walked in on Mick Blue and Mr. Pete to give them a show in the living room. There was little time for small talk as she slowly started licking and sucking them off, showing her love of Mick right away before Pete came up behind her to give her a bone of his own. He vaginally tapped away at her like crazy, spanking her cheeks as she slobbed Mick's knob, the purring noises emanating from her proving she liked it. She then started making out with Mick while jerking him off, seemingly oblivious to Pete's penetrative pounding. The men then switched places to continue with some anal taking place after that. She wasn't the most active fuck of the show either but she did display enough potential that I wanted to see her working more with men she wanted to play with (like Mick alone). The sex progressed to some DP work after a lot of anal, ending with her swallowing both of their loads, straight from the tap.
Scene Five: Maya Hills, the gorgeous hotty gracing the front cover, was up last as she played a porn cop dressed in her cover outfit. She was investigating Mark Wood and given the brevity of her outfit, I had the distinctive impression that she was going to be investigated by him as well. The tease showed her ass off nicely and after she found a stash of his sex toys, she demanded he show her how they were used. That led to the usual fuck and suck but she enhanced it tremendously with her sexually aggressive mannerisms; impaling herself on the cock front and back among other things. Since her first scenes (and subsequent retirement), her come back has shown her to flesh out a bit and the extra couple of pounds look really good on her but her looks and body shape alone are only part of the equation. Her energy and passion, real of acted, serve her well and make her top notch as a gonzo gal worth taking note of. She still doesn't handle anal as well as gals like Lexi, Dana, and Aline, but she will really shine once she lives up to her potential with this scene proving my point as to how hot she really can be. It ended with an eye shot and mouth pop, limited in the amount of chemistry between them but still favoring her as one of the top acts of the movie.
Summary: I've Been Sodomized #2 by director Mark Wood for Red Light District was worth a rating of Recommended or better, depending on how much you like the cast. Dana, Lexi, Aline, and Maya showed some solid moves with Isabella almost living up to her potential too. The levels of replay and strokability value as well as fuck for the buck and extras were top notch so I doubt you'll be disappointed if you enjoy watching attractive women getting the puckers poked and prodded. In short, I've Been Sodomized #2 was another great notch on the belt of director Mark Wood, serving to show that the latest generation of directors at the company are better than initial reports would indicate.
