Extras: One of the extras I really liked here was the 7:42 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 8:00 minute Behind the Scenes footage called Ass Daze with Craig Daze was also well worth talking about as it had some interviews and more nudity but it was limited to footage of Sasha Grey and Jassie. 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: House of Ass 7 was presented in a 1.33:1 full frame color offering as shot by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Productions. 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.
Sasha Grey had the smallest ass of the show but was very cute.

Body of Review: Tom Byron has long been a fan of ass so now that he has Tom Byron Productions up and running, he can provide more of a dedicated look at the female derriere than ever before. His latest movie to make it my way was House of Ass 7, the sequel to House of Ass 5 that I enjoyed so much earlier this year. I have found myself seeking out some of Tom's works of late due as much to the tease he has the ladies provides as the actual action but my fellow Houstonian has been around porn almost as long as I've been watching it so his ability to provide a different kind of gonzo experience has made much of his work worth searching for; my list containing the back volumes of this series as an example. The sex itself did not focus on anal but given the plentiful attention to the hotties gracing the production, I had no issues with this decision as the rippling rumps work just fine for me when the pussy is being plugged. If you are still interested, here is a quick look at the five scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were worn:
Sasha Grey was the lead in the BTS too.
Scene One: Sativa Rose, the brunette cutie seen on the upper right hand corner of the front cover, was up first as she showed the series formula of teasing outside and in the house after some introduction by Tom and Sasha. Her curvy figure and appealing face made this a solid bet to open the movie, the delightfully appealing attitude she showed making this a high point for me even before she started sucking him off in POV fashion really enthusiastically. Tom Byron made it clear that she was a gal he really wanted to work with and she continued blowing him with an appreciative eye contact that led to her offering herself up to him on the bed before long. He gave her some oral too and she was soon on top of him as the couple bumped uglies. I loved watching her ass cheeks ripple and her verbal cues added to the fun as well, Sativa spitting on his dick for additional lube and rubbing her clitoris to add some stimulation in the bedroom romp. The scene ended with Tom jerking off to her face, Sativa yelling when some of the population pudding hit her eye. She gave up some post coital sucking too, making it a solid opener.
Scene Two: Bailey Brooks, a curvy gal with nice legs in her first scene (seen on the lower left hand corner of the front cover), was up next as she showed off her tan line and body parts; reminding me of a stripper by the way she shook her money maker. Tom Byron gave her the standard interview and she seemed somewhat shy as she whispered the answers to the man as she relaxed on the couch. Hailing from Atlanta as a dancer (big surprise, huh?), she proved she could suck a mighty mean dick and was no stranger to blowing men as she inhaled his cock in POV fashion. I liked her eye contact a lot and while she was not the most polished cocksucker of the show, she used her hand and mouth in coordination better than many gals I've known over the years. On the other hand, she was a passive lay for most of her scene too; Tom doing almost all of the work during the vaginal plowing until she was on top of his lap. The ending was the expected facial and there really wasn't a lot coming out of him (Tom apologizing quietly while she stared into the camera held by Craig).
Scene Three: Jassie, the exotic gal seen on the upper middle of the front cover, was up next and as one of the oldest gals in the movie, she showed that she has filled out nicely in recent times, her ass ripe for the plucking by scene partner Tom Byron. He thought she looked like a model and at 5'8" without her stripper shoes, she was the perfect height for him. The couple hit it off as they discussed their personalities; the conversation leading to talk of her ass that showed some minor levels of junk in her trunk. The scene then edited right into the POV hummer and she worked it with a lot of vigor as she provided a perfect training video for gals entering the business. Tom's respiration rate was climbing quite quickly as he huffed and puffed at her oral antics, handing the camera off to Craig so he (Tom) could get a piece of that poon tang orally before pounding away at her cookie. It was a slow ride at first and I was surprised that she never picked up the pace a whole lot until well into the cowgirl positions. Given how puffy her pussy was, I suspected that a lot of footage must've been edited out of this one and she gave the impression that she wanted to switch to anal long before he rubbed out the facial at the end of the scene.
Scene Four: Sandra Romain, the Romanian anal queen in the industry, was up next as she showed some fantastic tease that did not last nearly long enough in her black leather shorts in the bedroom with Tom Byron. They discussed some legal trouble Rita Faltoyano was in (causing her to miss shooting with Tom) but also talked about Sandra before she started power sucking his rod. Of all the cats in the movie, Sandra was the best in terms of her ability to do anything and do it well so I knew this would be a strong scene too. The blowjob was passionate and her aggressive oral style included rimming his ass before she gave him a chance to orally please her too. His oral was far shorter than hers though and the two were bumping uglies in no time; Sandra's dirty talk the loudest of the entire cast. The vaginal led to anal sex and while she was not at her most aggressive in the ride, she is always fun to watch and he gave her a healthy facial to close the scene out.
Scene Five: Sasha Grey, the milky skinned gal showcased on the lower right hand corner of the front cover and co-host of the show, was up last as she worked with Tom Byron. She made it clear that she wasn't going to do anal this time but her living room tease in the red & black slutware was such that I could see why he favored her as the featured performer of the day. She relaxed on the black leather couch before dropping to her knees, handling his cock and balls to get the layout of the land before actively slobbing his knob and leaving lipstick smeared all over it. While she added a lot of energy to the mix, she also provided some needed playfulness that most of her peers simply could not provide; the messy hummer leading to her getting some licking by the man. She went back to blowing him and then tossed his salad; fingering his ass with two fingers when he shook his head at three. The anal play worked for her as much as it did for him, the vaginal sex beginning right afterwards as his now rock hard cock was used by the gal as she really powerfully bounced on the dick. She wanted him to get rougher and the rapid tempo of the penetration was the best of the show; her dirty talk almost as good as Sandra's and the scene ending with the facial as she taunted him.
Summary: House of Ass 7 by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Productions had a solid cast of gals with nicely shaped asses. The performances were a bit mixed but the totality of the circumstances behind the DVD was enough for me to rate this one as Recommended thanks to the technical values, the extras, and the amount of tease. In short, I liked House of Ass 7 as much as I enjoyed House of Ass 5, though more tease footage, better extras, and a steadier hand with the camera might have elevated it up another notch. This might not have been Tom's best work of the year but it did show he was trying to keep getting the best performers available instead of who was available on a given day; a dynamic many of his peers should take under consideration for their own works.
