Extra's: The best extra was a lengthy, 24:56 minute long set of masturbation scenes by ladies not involved in the scenes of the movie. Thankfully, they started off with Sativa Rose on a couch, the sexy little hotty always making my blood boil with her work. The best scenes were too short (Sativa's and Brooke's) but it was still a nice, if unrelated, extra. There was also a photogallery, a positions menu, and a bunch of spam for those who care.
Audio/Video Quality: Anal Conduct was presented in the typical 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by various Uncredited directors for release by Critical X. I'll be frank with you that at least two of the scenes looked like they were shot by famed director Bobby Rinaldi but without something to substantiate this, I hesitate to give him credit as director. In any case, the scenes were largely shot in generic settings with minimal lighting and too much movement of the camera. The women were all looking pretty hot and that alone compensated for the technical mishaps but the color tones (in the form of the flesh tones mostly) were accurate and the basic camera angles were handled fairly well most of the time; the biggest nuisance being the editing from what I could see. There were a few compression artifacts but the bitrate for the video hovered around the 6 Mbps mark a lot here so I really don't think the compression rate was to blame. The lingerie and other focal points did help make the ladies look pleasing to the eye though so whatever minor gripes I have about the visual qualities of the movie, it was not all poorly handled (making me think there might have been three different directors in fact). The audio was presented in a LPCM 2.0 with a bitrate of 1536 Kbps, sounding almost as good as a mid level Dolby Digital offering but largely relying on generic porn music that sounded suitable for the late 1980's.

Body of Review: Critical X is a small production company that I really haven't heard a lot about since it opened up shop a couple of years ago. There are only so many hours in a day so I tend to stick to proven companies when picking titles to review, though I still show a willingness to experiment if the casting is right. Their opening press release said this: "CANOGA PARK - Critical X released their first title this past week, Sexology, and exceeded all their expectations and goals. The response to the first title was great, and the feed back, even better. In just 4 days Critical X hit their sales goal. Although they did not completely exhaust their inventory for the first release they far exceeded what was expected to be sold. Having adult veterans Vince Miller and Rebecca Bardoux, of Bare Inc., running sales and marketing for the new production company made my life easier, states company owner Sabi Apai. I feel we have put together a great team of talented and creative people, that work well together and put our customers first. We will only get better." Well, today's review of Anal Conduct, a compilation of scenes from movies unlisted was the subject of my first review of their work and there was a lot to like about it. The scenes were straightforward and had no dialogue outside of some sex noises, revealing little about the origins of the scenes as a result. If you are still interested, here is a brief look at the five scenes by action and cast, noting that no condoms were used and all the scenes appeared to be a few years old:
Scene One: Katin, a curvy gal with red hair and a fine figure, was up first in a living room as she teased in her camisole and other sexy lingerie before serving as a cock socket for the cock of Ben English. He went right to boning her willing mouth, slapping her jaw with his meaty member and pulling her hair as she worked him over; the gal taking charge of his pleasure fairly quickly after that. There was a slight bit of titty fucking before they screwed, her pussy warming up better than her ass did as she passively let him have her way with her. She moaned a lot as he impaled her ass with his cock, her titties flopping about nicely as she occasionally gave some dirty talk when she wasn't doing ATM (ass to mouth). While this was probably the worst scene to start the compilation with, I found her to be physically appealing and worth a look. The scene ended when he busted a nut of population pudding on her awaiting face; the lady tonguing his cock and giving him some post coital sucking to close it off.
Scene Two: Lanny Barby, the beautiful brunette seen on the front cover (currently under contract at Vivid), was up next as she teased the camera in a wilderness in some form fitting black and peach lingerie. I admit to finding her excessively appealing and lucky Ben English was up again as he served her his heaping helping of hummer worthy cock that she aggressively sucked while he gave her extensive directions. I would have preferred he let her simply do her job and keep quiet but part of his screen persona is talking so knowing he's in a scene, I can't ask a leopard to change his spots. Her beautiful eyes were as seductive as ever and while the scene had a soft focus, there was no denying she was a skilled sex worker with a lot of experience. The titty fucking again led to her getting drilled, her aggressive style applying to her vaginal work in a few positions before she did the expected anal. She was not as active taking his cock in her ass but she did show a lot more passion than some of the others as she pounded her ass onto his rod (on the pool chair no less). She remained with open eyes and mouth as he jerked out his load to her face, coating her thoroughly in the process before the heated scene ended.
Scene Three: Melissa Lauren, another charming brunette that many fans adore, was up next on a couch without any tease footage to speak off wearing a purple fishnet top and black panties to go with her boots. She wanted a "real dick" and Chris Charming jumped at the chance since she did not want to waste her efforts with the dildo conveniently lying on the couch. This scene looked really low end in terms of the technical values but she was another gal that could distract even the most jaded reviewer from spending too much time noticing it. She slobbed his knob very nicely with her ass in the air during some standing head, going straight to anal afterwards where she proved to be the anal queen of the show with the way she impaled herself so soundly on his large cock. He eventually tested her pussy out too but she clearly enjoyed the anal more so your mileage may vary in terms of her act. The scene ended when he rubbed out a modest load onto her crotch, the scene cutting away before she could do much with it.
Scene Four: Missy Monroe, a cute blonde that recently retired from the industry after a long, sorted career, was up next with hairy Steven French. She was looking leaner than I've seen her in a couple of years and her girlish look that has been gone was back with a vengeance as the "Chewbacca of porn" stretched her ass with a series of toys. She taste tested them out of her ass before rimming him and giving him some head, the gal coming off like she was into the sex but not as experienced as the last number of times I've watched her in action. This actually elevated the scene for me a bit and her vaginal ride was pretty good. Those who have followed Missy's career though will prefer to know how her anal went and I can safely say that she was more aggressive there as she provided some heated dirty talk to make the scene even more stroke worthy. It ended when he came on a blue plate for her to lick clean, giving her some dinner to chow on as she savored the spew.
Scene Five: Isabel Ice, a sexy tart with a curvy figure and bright pink/red lingerie on, was up last in a scene with Joel Lawrence on a couch. The scene started off already underway and she was jamming a dildo in herself as she blew him, the hummer lasting awhile as she let him take over the anal penetration with the toy. Given Joel's current status as one of the industry leading agents that has retired from performing on camera awhile back, I did not expect a lot from him but fans of rough sex might find he went out with a bang given the frustrated manner in which he spanked her. That led to the vaginal and anal work showing her embracing the technical DP of the cock and the toy; albeit with some jumpy editing at times. She seemed a bit rough around the edges too, but full of a passionate performing manner that really helped win me over. The scene ended with him jerking off into her mouth and actively swirling his tongue in his own semen but it faded before either of them could swallow.
Summary: Anal Conduct by various Uncredited directors for release by Critical X was not my favorite compilation in recent months but as much as I wished for higher level technical qualities and better labeling (there were no credits; thankfully I knew who was who easily), I found the scenes themselves to be nicely performed and worthy of being Recommended. The sex was the main reason why you will want to give this one a look and the lack of frills might appeal to some of you more than others when you see this title on sale as it has been a few times online. In short, while I picked up this DVD strictly to see more of Lanny Barby and Missy Monroe, the other ladies all gave good head and did anal as advertised so I found Anal Conduct to be the first of several titles I hope will prove as good by the company.
