Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Playground 35 was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground. The lighting was reasonably solid here, as expected given this was Robby's standard type of gonzo, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question; sometimes using a POV angle before the sex took place. The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies more than a little bit too, proving what this critic has to say about the production team led by Robby (who did all the camerawork to allow the talented Nick "The Wiz" P. the task of cleaning up the goofs with the editing and music this time) with the DVD mastering revealing no obvious compression artifacts (the bitrate varying but often staying near the mid 7 Mbps range). The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround (using 384 Kbps) with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any, but aside from some whispered vocals by the men, the ladies were almost always clearly heard.
Body of Review: Jack's Playground is probably the longest running comedy porn series these days, directed by Robby D. for Digital Playground. The concept of the series is that Robby plays the role of an off screen horn dog trying to score with the ladies, tempting morally loose gals to perform for him in exchange for his consideration in giving them roles in his music videos. Needless to say, he never actually directs any videos but the scam dynamic gives him and his pals access to some of the hottest gals in porn, even those that only do solo work as a means to keep the viewer guessing as to what will happen. The other common thread of the series is that it employs a lot of humor between the sex scenes, using pop up videos, sound effects, voice-overs and even Montel the talking black dildo as part of the entertainment package. Over the last four years, the hits in the series have outnumbered the misses so with that in mind, I now take a sneak peek at Jack's Playground 35: Juicy Cheeks Meet Juicy Peaks where the scene shot back in 2005 now come out; including one starring lovely hotty Teagan Presley. Unlike Jack's Playground 34, this one was not quite as consistent but it was still worth picking up a copy later this month. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used in the seven scenes:
Scene One: Candy Manson, the busty blond in the middle of the front cover, was up first playing a stripper that Scott Nails picked up who wants to be an actress. Her audition for Jack consisted of role playing a step daughter wanting a car, using her feminine wiles on pretend step dad Scott by means of blackmail. Needless to say, Jack demands she take the role to the next level, goofing on Scott as a pervert yet egging him on as he takes full advantage of the situation. Candy displayed some good oral skills before the meaty member of the guy pounded deep inside her cookie, the juices flowing from her snatch readily with her doing some PTM in response. I liked her initial outfit that consisted of a neon pink fishnet body stocking and a silvery two piece top and hot pants, the tease elevating the scene more than her relatively passive riding skills did but still ending with her taking his load of population pudding with her eyes open (most of it landing on her tongue).
Scene Two: Ruby, a curvy brunette with a hot ass and all natural body, was up next in a solo scene after a hilarious clip of Marco Banderas was shown. The joke during the scene itself was related to so many people hating the way the company uses slo-motion in their Celeste movies, employing the same effect during the first part of the scene (then stopping it to say they were just fucking with us). Ruby masturbated on the bed and her skills were okay, even if I would have preferred seeing her at my place in a full scene called "mercy fuck". This was followed by Nick P getting molested in another comedy skit as Robby and Marco jumped him on a couch.
Scene Three: Myah Monroe, a very sexual gal, was up next all tied up and gagged in the closet of Chris Charming. She wanted to do music videos and Chris' casting methods aside, her tight jeans looked awesome and almost as painted onto her firm ass as she tried to get out of the handcuffs holding the 19 year old cutie. As helpless as she was, Jack took advantage of the situation to molest her as he pointed out her physically appealing attributes, her glossy lipstick begging to be applied to a cock as much as her ass needed a spanking. Her heavy accent aside and the mean comedy bits goofing on her horse face and dental attributes, she was skilled at sucking cock with some distinctive energy. She couldn't use her hands as they were still bound behind her but she showed no issues as she looked up and slobbed the knob with flair. The men freed her to get a strip tease show, with Chris seen in the mirror tearing off his clothing before the two bumped uglies; jack getting a free lap dance as part of the plan. Chris sucked her ass and then drilled her hardcore style on the bed, the gal proving to be a screamer as he worked her over. She was an active rider of cock and the scene ended with a facial, cranking up the heat a notch from the previous two scenes in the movie.
Scene Four: Lexxxi Tyler, another extremely appealing hotty wearing clothing that barely covered her assets (I loved the daisy duke cutoff short shorts!), wanted to audition for a role in music videos by treating Jack to some POV action. She always stopped just short of doing him, teasing him with her large implants rubbing all over him and some sensual finger sucking, the idea being Jack reduced to a stammering idiot as she toyed with him. Okay, I hated her implants but her backside was really nicely shaped and her ability to tease top notch. The solo action was nice too and I only wished it lasted longer.
Scene Five: Lexi Love, a 19 year old that has become a leading anal princess in porn since this scene was shot a few years back, was up next without any of the preliminary chatter as jack's conversation with her took place as Scott Nails was pounding her pussy. Seeing her bent over on the floor and making lots of dirty talk made this another winner for me even though it was too short by a lot. She took to doing PTM and jerking him off during an ending hummer before taking a pearl necklace but as a nonstandard bit of heated action, it was a lot of fun. This scene then went into Lexxxi Tyler deepthroating a banana as her glossy lipstick coated lips worked it deep.
Scene Six: Karlie Montana, an all natural cutie with fine curves, was up next in a black bikini as she showed her body off for the camera. The clothing fell off and she showed some great ass cheek muscle control, leaving me wanting more from her. Her demonstration of potential titty fucking abilities (her "two fingers" depth being more than enough for jack according to his own admission) led to some more solo work with the neatly trimmed patch of the 19 year old never getting in the way of her diddling.
Scene Seven: Teagan Presley, in a scene shot a few years ago with her wearing a black top and shorts, was up last and as the featured gal on the cover (obviously the one on the right hand side). She commented on her "new boobies" and this had been her first chance to work with Scott Nails since her Teagan: Erotique release with the guy wearing his messy afro on the couch. These two have long been great together sexually so her lean figure teasing with butt cleavage and bending over his lap really made an impression as she called him "daddy". He spanked her and diddled her with his hand, Teagan using her girlish demeanor to project an entirely different dynamic than she does these days. He ate her out and she aggressively blew him using her hand to gland combat style adding some friction as she threw herself into her work. Once she warmed up, she even rode him actively as her ass cheeks rippled to the rhythm they established with her on top. She had trouble keeping her breath but the intermittent blowjob/PTM gave her a chance to catch up before they continued fucking hardcore. He was drilling her like a man possessed, eventually using her finger and a glass dildo to stretch her asshole out for accommodating his rod. She moaned a lot and let him do most of the penetrative anal but she still looked as precious as ever even if this was not her best scene from the time period. The ATM led to a facial and she admired the protein shake as the final comedy clip played.
Summary: Jack's Playground 35 by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground later this month was notable as much for the release of the older scene by lovely Teagan Presley as much as anything else. It might not have been as consistently heated as some of the previous volumes in the series but there was a lot to enjoy here and fans of the solo acts might find it even better than expected. The levels of replay value and strokability earned it a rating of Recommended, making Jack's Playground 35 nearly as good as Jack's Playground 34 was for me but just as entertaining in terms of the comedy clips frequently placed in strategic locations throughout the show.
