Dates of Production: 8/28/2007 to 9/4/2007
Extras: The best extra was the 10:00 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by “Da Bootyhunta” that included a fair amount of nudity during almost completely photoshoot material. There was also a photogallery, a pop shot compilation, and a slipcover for the DVD case.

Audio/Video Quality: Tease Before The Please was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Sid Knox for Diabolic Digital (technically, the cover credited Gregg Alan while the beginning and ending credits gave Sid the nod; to me, it looked like one of Sid’s previous works though so it’s probably just the alternate name for the guy a friend of mine claims owns the company). The lighting was almost always decent after the opening scene; optimal on the bodies as it limited the grain, video noise, and shadows other productions seem unable to get rid of far too often; but the crotches were not as consistently well lit as they should have been. The composition of the shots weren't always completely flattering to the ladies but at least there was rarely any doubt about what was going on and where it was going; given the quality of the cast, this made it more enjoyable too. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the bitrate hovered in the mid 4 Mbps area so it did not look bad at all. There were no compression artifacts and the visuals were generally handled pretty well here. The audio was presented in a 1.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate. The music was generic but the vocals; while plain as could be, could be heard in almost all cases; only slightly hollow at times when the ladies were making it clear their limits were being pushed.

Body of Review: Sid Knox is the pseudonym name for one of the current directors at Diabolic Digital that has been trying out some new styles at the company of late (to mixed reviews). Still, having watched a few of his works, I think he shows some potential when the right partners are selected for the scenes he captures, his general approach seemingly allowing the performers to do what they want to do rather than provide them with a micromanaged list of what has to be done. The results may have varied to date but given the cast list of his latest movie, Tease Before The Please, I think he might be cultivating something that could grow into a nicely played bit of work. The movie itself employed at least some tease footage in each scene as an opener, then the usual hardcore antics one would expect from any movie by the longstanding gonzo production powerhouse. With six scenes to select from, I figured the name draw alone of gals such as Brianna Love, Sandra Romain, Nikki Benz, and August would have been enough to merit exploration so I picked up a copy for review. If you’re still interested, here’s a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
All natural Brianna Love looked most fetching!
Scene One: August, a lean hotty wearing some form-enhancing black & blue lingerie, was up first as she pranced around wearing it as it to send out a message that she was ready to fuck like a bunny in heat; giving studly John Strong all the vibes he needed to proceed on her physique as she stretched out across his lap. She gave him a sloppy but thorough blowjob, carefully teasing him as she worked him into a turgid state of mind. Her enthusiasm alone was enough to get him into the mood to become a giver, John going down on her as if hungry for the cookie he was about to nail. Her dirty talk was a solid addition to the scene and she came across as having a good time, warming up before actively riding the cock vaginally and doing PTM with it. Her best work came when she was on top of him, her ass cheeks jiggling rapidly as the two bumped uglies. She left her nylons on her legs even as he rubbed out a moderate load of population pudding, August smiling as the camera cut away. It was a nice start to the movie overall and showed why she has been good at reinventing herself for career longevity of late.
Scene Two: Nikki Benz, a curvy blond with large implants, was up next and her fans will love the way she looked in her short black dress while she teased on the couch before enticing the mighty Evan Stone into a heated tryst on the porn set’s couch. Her engine was already running into overdrive as she started pawing the muscular guy, her drive to suck him off unstoppable even before she bit his nipples. I wasn’t keen about the huge bruise on her leg but her blowjob skills were top notch and she added in some titty fucking to enhance them too. That she was an active cock rider out of the gate was one of the reasons why she has so many fans and been around the industry for so long but she also knew when to take it slow to build some additional passion as well. Their chemistry together was higher than the last couple and the scene amounted to more than just yet another round of the sexual Olympics. I may never get used to her implants but I could not deny her sexual abilities being perfect for the show (I just wish that her scene, like all the others, had even more tease footage). The scene ended with a light facial as sweat poured down their bodies; marking it another winner as far as I was concerned.
Scene Three: Sandra Romain, the curvy brunette from Romania that is arguably the top anal queen in the business these days, was up next and her tease was proof that she needs to come back over here to make more movies. She may not have the classic style of beauty that a few in the industry possess but her sexual repertoire is above reproach and always appreciated. Her partners this time were Talon and Jenner; admittedly showing that even the Queen can draw the short straws from time to time but they worked her as well as they could, the gal using dirty talk, superb oral skills, and an aggressive need for seed that let her take anything they could hand out with stunning ease. She did oral, anal, DPs, and lots of oral (including taste testing) but always seemed most at home doing the anal and a cock in her mouth. There were even a few points in the movie when I thought she was going to push the men too far, their sweaty bodies looking about ready to acknowledge her superior status but holding on until they launched their semen into her mouth for swallowing. In terms of sexual energy, heat, and sheer drive, this one was the peak performance of the movie as far as the women were concerned; making me wonder how much stronger it could have been had she been paired with two of the stronger males.
Scene Four: Sophia and Austin Kincaid, curvy gals with appealing looks, were up next on the couch with moper Jenner; Austin keeping her distance as he pawed Sophia but jumping in anyway, even against her better judgment. For me, the best footage of this scene was the lesbian tricks the ladies engaged in while Jenner made occasional passes on them (orally and with his fingers). The chemistry between the gals was enough that I would have been a lot happier if they had been given more time to tease and then simply slip into a lesbian-only scene while he was shown the door but they made the best of the situation by using his cock as a substitute for a pocket rocket (sans the batteries). The ladies were very vocal but not overly active riders this time, probably a result of his participation but the gals did manage some quality time when on top of him. The scene ended when Austin jerked out a wad of spew onto Sophia’s crotch, my appreciation for having the ladies do it and then provide some post coital sucking a given.
Scene Five: Savannah Gold, a dramatically enhanced blond with a cute face, was up next as she slowly danced around aging Mark Davis as though working at a second tier strip club for profit. Her English accent was hot and while I would have liked more tease without him in the picture, good quality tease is always appreciated by this reviewer. He diddled her and spent some time going down on her well enough that I felt her smiles were genuine, her own oral skills tested a bit as she inhaled his cock like she was no stranger to one deep in her mouth. Her use of the hand during this phase of the movie was nicely done and as slow a ride as it started out, Savannah was bouncing on his cock in no time like she was scratching a deep seated itch. Her anal action was actually more consistent than her vaginal riding too; resulting in Mark busting a nut on her face.
Scene Six: Brianna Love, the cheeky wonder seen on the front DVD cover, was up last and she turned the tease on high as she whispered softly about wanting to tease Tommy Gunn. He responded like any straight man would and the throbbing boner in his pants would not be denied, Brianna taking her own sweet time before licking his erection like a lollipop and aggressively blowing him. That led to some very heated vaginal screwing and him fingering her sweet ass, her passionate moans elevating the dynamic of the scene more than a little bit. The transition to anal was a bit sudden (editing is tough when you want a movie released quickly) and she sure slowed down a lot when taking him in the backdoor, but I was thankful they returned to her preferred vaginal riding in short order for him to pop all over her neck and face. Brianna looked great and while it was not her most sexually heated or consistent scene, she is always welcome in anything I review.
Summary: Tease Before The Please by director Sid Knox for Diabolic Digital was better than his last few releases as far as I was concerned because there was a basic theme he could address, the tease, and he addressed it fairly well. There are companies out there (particularly Jules Jordan Video) where the tease footage is the big seller for me so seeing someone consciously trying to provide more of it is a step in the right direction. The ladies cast for the movie were all solid selections, the technical values pretty good (though the editing needed polishing up), and the amount of fuck for the buck combined to merit a rating of Recommended or better, but I can admit to having a “hard” spot for some of these gals that goes back awhile. In short, Tease Before The Please proved to me that Sid was capable of doing more than just churning out generi-porn like many of his peers, perhaps a second volume will offer even more of the basics to appreciate.
