Audrey Bitoni in one of many, too many, close ups.

Audio/Video Quality: Audrey Bitoni: Sexual Freak 8 was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Celeste for Digital Playground. The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release look okay; a return to the more distinctive Celeste look that marked her flicks from prior to last year where Robby asserted his own style more frequently. In fact, the technical matters and editing by Willem Default aside, I would have said that Celeste might have even been on set for these scenes given how different they looked but for the time frame when they were shot. The lighting was generally solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget; favoring a soft focus in some cases that I wasn’t convinced worked too well. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts; with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the low 7 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related series. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 384 Kbps bitrate; twice that of most porn made these days, 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 outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were always clearly heard here.
Body of Review: Celeste is the director of erotica designed mostly for women at Digital Playground, her works relying heavily on the assistance of her boy toy Robby but conceived in the devious workings of her own mind from what I can tell. I have found a number of her movies to be strokable but since I’m not her target audience, my mileage probably varies from her regular fans (I might adore the lady as an individual but I don’t give walks to anyone); some of which include my regular toy testing team that appreciate Celeste’s fuck flicks more than I ever could. Her latest title to come out next month will be Audrey Bitoni: Sexual Freak 8, the sequel to more recently shot Stoya: Sexual Freak 7; the movie featuring one of Robby’s pet performers, Audrey Bitoni, in a couple of early scenes in her career. He and I discussed her appeal to him as well as his perception that I don’t like her at the convention last month; my comments regarding seeing more of her movies than he ever will giving me a more balanced viewpoint (not to mention the fact that he gets so close to some of the ladies that he loses objectivity; maybe he made a POV scene with her for private use…kidding!). In any case, the series is known for providing a set of five erotic scenarios that allow a particular fantasy of Celeste to be lived out on screen; the heat greatly varying depending on the performers as far as I can tell. If you’re still interested, here’s a quick glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used in this movie shot back in 2006:
Scene One: Audrey Bitoni, the cute brunette featured all over the front cover, was up first in a scene with pretty boy Jean Val Jean where she played his seductive secretary. He was bored and irritable but she wanted him all the same; rubbing herself to gain his attention. She threatened him with a sexual harassment charge if he wouldn’t fuck her so he caved into her demands and began kissing her, not wanting to be deported by the shrill vixen. She aggressively took advantage of the moment too, enthusiastically enjoying his oral work on her titties and going down on her before she slobbed his knob. The abundance of close ups was a pain for me here but she gave a better than usual performance too, perhaps Robby saving her best work all this time since it wasn’t captured on camera as well as he normally does. Audrey was moderately active in a few positions but this was another scene where my previous observations held true about the lady, her oral being the last stop on the “fun train” as far as I was concerned. She has been getting better of late though so keep an eye out for her if you like gals into the sex enough to pump themselves on the cock (because she sure didn’t do that here, at least until well into her scene and too close to the end). Jean ended the scene by rubbing out his wad of population pudding to her face, Audrey spitting it out as if it were toxic to all human life.
Scene Two: Mindy Main, a very cute brunette in minimal clothing on her bed, was up next as she made a booty call to Scott Nails using the premise that an intruder was somewhere in the house. She masturbated and he walked in on her; Scott finding out she was making another psycho attempt to gain his favor as she tried to seduce him. By the time her lips were wrapped around his cock, he forgot all of his protestations in the heat of the moment, going down on the implanted gal while she over acted her approval. She gave him more head and got into a 69 position so they could both enjoy the oral better; the slow pacing dragging until she began actively riding the cock like Audrey never seemed able to do. They banged vaginally until he rubbed out a load to her chest, a large load from the looks of it and her limited verbal coaxing needing some polishing up.
Scene Three: Isis Love, a blond in the bathroom getting ready for something, was interrupted by police officer Jack Lawrence who was looking for a disturbance that was called in to his department. She said there wasn’t one but allowed him to look around, Isis taking him by surprise with his own handgun as she took control of the public servant to make him her personal pubic servant. She kept the gun at his face in a disturbingly twisted manner, the turnabout of the cop fantasy something admittedly different as she forced him to go down on her while she sat on his face. This continued in a few positions before she took his cock into her mouth; jerking him off and sucking him hard to make his erection even harder. There was a lot of tease employed here and considering the relative weakness of the prior scenes, it added a strange blend of passion that worked thanks as much to the chemistry as the scenario so aptly played out by the couple. There was even some foot fetish action going on this time before he started banging her pussy, though his erection was not consistently present (her verbal coaxing almost made the scene this time). They screwed vaginally for awhile but she was always in a submissive position and he came on her feet, weakening the overall effect for me even though she licked her feet clean.
Scene Four: Jenna Presley, a beautiful little brunette masturbating on an easy chair, was upset with studly Marco Banderas for missing out on their dinner plans; his “kept” status pissing her off as he was two hours late. She took charge of him and fussed at him, slapping the guy around and demanding his compliance in the future before blowing him. She smelt pussy on his dick and accused him of lying, both of them doing oral before the vaginal sex became the dominant act of the day. She gave a good hummer and was active at riding him even though the vocals were over the top again. The scene ended with him jerking off to her face as she demanded, the minimal semen falling onto her outfit even as she provided some post coital action on his rod.
Scene Five: Audrey Bitoni, up last as a gal hiring a male escort, in this case the guy being Scott Nails, wanted to test drive him as if he were a car before doing anything else. With no tease (bad idea!), she immediately dropped to her knees to slob his knob; her great oral skills the best part of the act as far as I was concerned. He ate her out too and fingered her ever so slightly before they vaginally screwed but this was another case of her passive manner weakening the action for me. By the time she came around and started bouncing on cock (finally!), the scene was almost over and even then it was inconsistently applied. Make no mistake about it, Audrey showed a lot more potential this time than in the first scene, but for the featured act of a DVD, it should have been better. The facial largely missed her but her oral skills went back to work, almost enough to work him into a second load.
Summary: Audrey Bitoni: Sexual Freak 8 by director Celeste for Digital Playground was the perfect example of a star driven title that some of you will really like while others will find tepid (at best). Audrey certainly has her charms and as an oral sex provider, she seems to be a top flight performer (not in the Jenna Haze category but still a solid oralist) though her penetrative sex often lacks energy as displayed in all but the last few minutes of her two scenes here. I rated this as a Rent It for the general audience but fans of the young lady will likely consider it a “must have” that they should pre-order before it comes out next month. In short, Audrey Bitoni: Sexual Freak 8 was not as appealing to me as Sexual Freak 7 but personal taste in the ladies is what makes watching porn so interesting much of the time.
