Extra's: One of the extras I really liked here was the 6:47 minute long sessions of tease by the ladies as they gyrated, wiggled, and otherwise strut their collective stuff by the pool and in the bedroom; using their money makers really well to provide some added stroke value. Each scene should have had more than that much alone but it certainly added replay value for me and was appreciated. The 10:34 minute Behind the Scenes footage was also well worth talking about as it had some interviews and more nudity but it sucked since it had no footage of Brianna or Aurora; easily the two biggest draws of the show. There was a photogallery, cumshot recap, some trailers, and some spam too with the DVD case covered by a slip cover version of the front cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Big Ass Fixation 2 was presented in a letterboxed widescreen color as shot by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures. Most of the camera work was done by Craig Daze with the bedroom ending up as the generic location where the sex took place. The video maintained a bitrate of mid 5 Mbps most of the time, reducing the obvious compression artifacts to almost none and each scene looked the same given it was just Craig and Tom here (Craig took charge while Tom was busy in front of the camera). The composition of the scenes was consistent too with the limited bedroom sex after the fun tease montages shot around the house. The editing was generally decent, showing more skill than the last time I checked out one of his movies for review. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering at 192 Kbps. There was no noticeable separation between the tracks and the dynamic range was limited but I could hear the ladies and the music was not a factor once the scenes started in earnest.

Body of Review: Tom Byron has come back to directing porn after a short absence, using his company (Tom Byron Pictures) to make the kinds of porn he enjoys making the most. This works some of the time and not other times depending on what you are into; the man truly following his own muse as it were. His latest release to make it my way is Big Ass Fixation 2, a title I really liked going in to watch the show. I like curvy backsides as much as anyone outside of John Stagliano and Uncle D so you can imagine that I was all set to enjoy the movie. There were five scenes, all with genetically blessed women when it came to their asses, and it seemed like this would be a winner straight out of the package. If you are still interested, here's a quick look at the scenes by their casting and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Aurora "Nikara" Jolie, a light skinned black gal known for her vaginal virginity (made up for by her anal skills), was up first and fans of curvy women will find her very physically appealing indeed. Her impressive rack and thick body looked good here and after a brief interview, she was sucking him off really enthusiastically (using her hands as part of the warm up). She slobbered all over it and made those noises I like, Tom sucking her ass a little before she went back to the knob slobbing fun. Her energetic head aside, I wanted to see how well she would anally ride the cock of Tom Byron, so I patiently watched her, waiting for the active rider I'd seen numerous times to start boning. Sadly, she was always really passive at receiving the anal and as shocked I was about it (she usually shows more passion for the anal), I found myself pissed off that I waited too long for too little. She did fine at the oral but the overall scene was quite a dud for me thanks to this; it ending when he rubbed out a facial that largely missed her face.
Scene Two: Kiara Marie, a "stripper next door" type of lady with a fleshy ass (really nice one too), was up next as she followed the formula set forth by scene partner Tom Byron. This being his "first" Kiara, the unusual name sparking up conversation as she continued to show off her body for the director. Her booty shorts enhanced her look and while I might not buy her "ass taking over the world" comment, I found it as appealing as Tom did when he so aggressively worked it orally and with his hands. She was slow to warm here but unlike Aurora, she got into the vaginal screwing when she climbed on top of his cock; rocking her ass back and forth while her respiration rate increased as a function of getting having fun. This continued until her gave her a mouth pop she could savor; essentially a direct deposit type of thing, the cutie swallowing the load of population pudding before the next gal was up. Whew!
Scene Three: Kaleah, a moderately dark black gal with a large ass, was up next as she gyrated outside in the perfect weather for Tom Byron. She had plenty of extra junk in the trunk but despite her nervousness, the relative newcomer to porn ("about a year") appeared to be shy while he interviewed her on the couch. She had a fine ass and her seductive oral skills were enough to show me she was certainly no stranger to sucking a guy off; the lady having a few rough edges but still a solid background in cocksmanship to fall back on if porn doesn't work out. She tossed his salad as he rimmed her too, both getting warmed up for the penetrative acts that came next. Sadly, she was also a mostly passive rider that let Tom do the majority of work; reducing the stroke value of the scene for me a lot. It ended with a moderate pop shot to her ass cheeks, the gal showing no appreciation for his hard work.
Scene Four: Brianna Love, the curvy babe on the front DVD cover and easily the most known gal of the bunch thanks to her former contract with Red Light District and routine appearances at industry events, was up next as she teased the camera in her neon greenish yellow bathing suit (that I would have loved flossing with). The sunlight by the pool looked fantastic on her oiled ass just as the cute off blue jean shorts did in the bedroom so it was not surprising that Tom Byron found her "so freaking cute". While her ass was clearly the focal point of his attention, her face looked sweet too (except for the abundance of make up of course) and as I've stated in the past; any tease with her in it is bound to be strokable. She inhaled his meatpipe for the best hummer of the show (by far) and he serviced her a bit too to start her motor running but I was wondering how she's be riding his cock. While she has taken to providing really aggressive rides of late, she is still not as consistent as I like in a performer, this ending up another of her weaker scenes sadly enough. She looked great; but the lack of passion and energy once the oral was over really hurt the scene for me. I certainly wouldn't kick her out of bed (unless she wanted to do it on the floor of course) but even a fan has to recognize the reviewer's credo to call it like he see's it. The scene finished up when he jerked off a large load that went mostly over her head; the hotty waving as the camera faded out.
Scene Five: Angel Eyes, another thick black gal with some smoking curves and sultry good looks, was up last in a scene with Tom Byron after she teased by the pool. This was followed by some bedroom tease too, like the other gals, and Tom interviewed her as she shook her money maker in doggy style. He snacked on her ass crack and she sat on his face in between giving him some head; the blowjob offered up being mediocre but suitable. There were times when she was actively grinding her hips into his cock during the vaginal boning and times when she was passive (she was mostly passive) but as solid a lay as she probably is in real life, this was not her best work to date. He busted a nut on her ass cheeks to close things out and she did a better job than most of her peers in the movie but it was not enough to save the fuck flick from the weaker parts.
Summary: Big Ass Fixation 2 by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures fell victim to passive women that seemed to largely find sucking cock to be their strength but then became passive all too often. As a big ass lover, I still found the limited amounts of tease to be appealing and the oral skills displayed had me ready to start rubbing them out but the fact was that Tom either told them to let him do all the work or something else happened since I've seen solid performances from most of these gals. Taken as a whole then, I rated Big Ass Fixation 2 as a Rent It so your mileage may vary considerably but there was enough to like for the less demanding out there. Unless you're a slavering fanboy of the cast, try some of Tom's other works instead since he has proven time and again that he can knock them out of the park when he sets his mind to it; he just didn't do it with this one.
