Length: 269:14 minutes
Date of Production: 4/22/2007
Extra's: The extras were not plentiful this time as the photogallery was short (under 5 minutes) and the popshot compilation from the scenes was nothing special but after over four hours of great material, there was also a wonderfully appealing Behind the Scenes feature lasting 47:45 minutes. It had some of the photoshoot footage expected and some fooling around but it was the extra sexual conduct that really worked for me. The gals were smiling and having a ball even when they weren't cognizant of the camera rolling; proving some of the comments I had made about chemistry, energy, passion, and heat. I have seen a few better than this one but not by a whole lot, at least lately, so you should make sure you check it out when you get the movie (and you will want to).
Audio/Video Quality: Semen Sippers 6 was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as originally shot by director Mike John for distribution by Jules Jordan Video. 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 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 Mike's manner of coaxing out fine performances from almost everyone but the same could be said of the lighting that wasn't always perfect either. So, in the scenes where the lighting was flat and stronger; the picture was good 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 a positive visual improvement by Mike (not needing any assistance on camera this time either) that was complimented by the compositional work he offered up that repeatedly enhanced the look of the cast. There were no noticed compression artifacts (the bitrate hovered around mid 5 Mbps but it still looked really good in most cases) and while the picture wasn't the best gonzo I've seen from the director, it was close (and the technical matters never hampered the heat in the slightest; always adding to the scenes in fact). 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 in 192 Kbps bitrate that had some separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do more here too but I'm not greedy with improvements). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Mike could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theatres in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Body of Review: Mike John is probably best known as one of the reigning point of view (POV) gonzo directing experts that can transform otherwise mediocre performers into dynamos of sexual energy by some means not made public. This isn't always the case but when he strikes gold, he really hits it hard so I was pleased when he ended up being distributed by Jules Jordan Video last year. His latest double disc release is Semen Sippers 6: Special Edition Set, the sequel to Semen Sippers 5 where Mike gathered a horde of hotties that were not afraid of getting messy with population pudding after lengthy bouts of heated sex. The sixth volume of the series lasted over four hours and had nearly another hour of extras for the value conscious out there but the best news is that with minor quirks, the quality angle of the sex was even better this time, showing a lot of thought going into putting the right people together. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used here:
Scene One: Amy Ried, the curvy hotty seen on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up first on the stairs inside the house, wearing skimpy panties, a short skirt, a matching top and stripper shoes. She teased a bit to give a great view of what we all want to see and her solo act included the use of a bright pink anal plug to start stretching her ass for the coming action with Erik Everhard. Not too shy to taste her own ass juices, she popped the plug from her ass to her mouth, then crawling to the living room couch where she continued to prepare for the studly legend; the man quickly coming over to orally treat her to his skillful tongue and hands in no time after that. These two have created heat before using their personal chemistry for one another and that was surely the case this time too as she immediately sprang forth from his oral attentions to start power sucking his erection. I loved the way her titties swayed as she took care of the guy; each determined to get in some more oral on the other before they fucked like crazy in numerous positions (starting with doggy where she held her ass cheeks apart for better penetration). The vaginal was good but she seemed to enthusiastically appreciate the anal action even more after some taste testing; the dirty talk flowing from her in limited spurts as she was as lost in the moment as Erik generally gets. They repeatedly kissed and did some oral in between positions with the gal swallowing the large load to end the lengthy scene at the 49 minute mark(!); showing Mike knows how to get things started as quickly as possible with a tremendously passionate pairing. Whew!
Scene Two: Paulina James, the beautiful brunette seen on the middle of the right hand side of the front cover and Lindsay Meadows, the not so shabby brunette seen on the upper middle of the cover (under the word "special"), were up next in a scene with Steve Holmes. Paulina was masturbating in the bedroom while Lindsay was rubbing herself in the kitchen; each practically begging to be hooked up with each other from the looks of it. Each of the gals has an all natural body and a youthful appearance, though to split hairs I'd have to say Paulina is probably better looking in a classic sense. They continued their solo tease performances for awhile when they spoke on the phone, conspiring to hook up with rich Steve at his plush estate because of his reportedly large cock. They got together and spied him jerking off by the pool outside, peeping on him until he caught them and suggested they all spend some quality time together inside. They did little oral at this point, getting right into the thick of things as Steve porked Lindsay who was fingering Paulina on the leather couch. The gals took turns on his cock and face after that, both ladies showing a slightly different set of skills as they actively rode his rod and serviced each other. In deference to their skills, Lindsay was the better performer in terms of her riding skill and overall attitude but Steve seemed to appreciate them both just fine. Neither did anal but given all the other things they did so well, it was never an issue for me (heck, even foot fetish fans were given a slight nod here). In keeping with the comments on the back cover, I agree that the ladies displayed their ball draining abilities to full effect; Steve dividing out the population pudding between them for them to cumswap playfully. Yum!
Scene Three: Mia Bangg, the brunette with the great ass standing on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up next with her buddy Keeani Lei (standing beside her), in a scene that kind of reversed the roles of the last scene with Steve Holmes as the peeper this time. Mia smoked her cancer stick and Keeani rubbed oil on her at the same time, the ladies inviting him over to play by the pool. Seeing his large cock, the ladies began by sucking him in a teasing fashion, finally deciding to move indoors where they could more fully appreciate one another on the day bed. That was when Steve and Keeani teamed up to diddle and go down on Mia, the curvy vixen taking a turn before long with her two pals. The pounding of the pussies was satisfying but Keeani wanted more so Steve gave her what she wanted in the form of some slow but deep anal. There was more taste testing because of it too but Mia was not going to be left out and enjoyed him hammering away on her ass even harder. Throughout the scene, the third partner would give one or both of the others some oral attention too but I'll admit that there was a bit less active riding when the anal took place over the bouncing vaginal positions. Still, as much as I favor Mia in general, Keeani kept up really well and I was pleased to say that the third scene offered a healthy dose of erection wrangling action too. The scene ended with some outstanding cumswapping and a swallow by Keeani; finishing up the first disc on a solid high note.
Scene Four: Rebeca Linares, the cute brunette newcomer with her ass in the air on the upper middle of the DVD cover, and busty associate Lela Star spreading her ass cheeks apart on the cover, were up next as the first scene of the second disc. There were in bed and enjoying some lesbian loving, the playfulness displayed elevating the value of the scene for me. Initially, Rebeca was the submissive one of the couple but she gave as well as she got when things started getting heated with the addition of Mr. Pete to the mix. The ladies double teamed his cock and balls with some heated and skillful maneuvering; Rebeca's accent making her all the more appealing as a result. This was another case where both gals showed the kind of spontaneity many gonzo directors are unable to effectively capture but Mike showed the expressions on their faces better than I expected out of him; with the little purring and moaning noises adding to the dynamic as Pete took turns nailing them vaginally. Lela was a little spitfire too as she impaled herself soundly on his cock; neither gal doing anal (again, not needing to thanks to the manner in which they so capably and effectively served as ball drainers with the oral and vaginal action). It also ended with a cumswap and swallow, marking a theme of sorts in line with the title of the movie.
Scene Five: Annette Schwarz, the German anal queen seen in the blue fetish outfit on the upper left hand corner and Lorelei Lee, her curvy blonde pal kneeling beside her, were up last with Steve Holmes inside the house. The gals invited him in and started making out with each other, getting increasingly aggressive as they did so and proving to have a disposition towards rough sex. While I would normally expect Annette to be the aggressor, each of them seemed to take turns with the role but Lorelei going first. I loved the sexy fetishware as much as the fact that the gals were built for comfort over speed, hungrily going at each other as though on a mission. The levels of choking, face sitting, and heavy handed digital manipulation were all pretty high; a sense of urgency developing between the pair as they sucked each hole with abandon. They ended up in the bedroom (after dragging each other there) and took advantage of Steve; continuing to provide the same kind of roughness and oral with him as they did with each other (not that they were through with each other mind you). He jumped in with gusto too, getting blown like a champion by the ladies before the anal began. Fans of gals getting hit so hard that they leave marks will appreciate how wild this one got, Lorelei begging for more at least a few times but the action continuing for a very long time before the ending cumswap had the gals asking for more. For what it's worth, these two ladies were the most perfectly matched pair of the entire movie (no matter how much I see them together, I want to see more too). Sweet!
Summary: Semen Sippers 6 by director Mike John for distribution by Jules Jordan Video was extremely high in quality and quantity, the ladies all showing a lot of enthusiasm and energy above and beyond the call of booty...err, I mean duty. I would have enjoyed more extras and a little more polishing up of the technical values but this was about as close to a collector rating as someone has come without actually achieving it, meriting a very Highly Recommended instead. The fuck for the buck, replayability, stroke value, and other factors going into the movie all made Semen Sippers 6: Special Edition Set a lot better than Semen Sippers 5 and you can't go wrong if you like your gonzo with a slight edge but few of the wacky circus acts some directors rely on in place of heated pairings like this one. Good job!
