Cast: Britney Stevens, Mick Blue, Sascha, Nadia Styles, John Strong, James Deen, MacKenzee Pierce, Marco Banderas, Laurie Vargas, Ben English, Aubrey Addams, Derrick Pierce, Brianna Love, Annette Schwarz
Length: 128:57 minutes
Date of Production: 3/12/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 14:25 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, starting off with some photoshoot material and interview with Brianna Love & Annette Schwarz, moving through the cast to end with Nadia Styles. Melissa Lauren was present throughout the feature so her status as director seemed reasonable and while it cut off abruptly, it had some cute moments. There was also a cumshot recap and photogallery as well as a slipcase and true double sided cover.
Brianna Love, Annette Schwarz, and Mick Blue!
Audio/Video Quality: Un-Natural Sex #22 was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color as shot by director Melissa Lauren for Diabolic Digital. Having only seen a limited amount of her work as a director in the past, I was ready for anything and to be frank, she did a decent job here with the lighting helping to minimize the video noise, and other visual flaws that are too common to porn flicks these days. The fleshtones looked good and the camera angles were edited too aggressively at times but even the over use of close up shots was not too bad here as far as I was concerned. There was less grain than usual here but the occasional aliasing distracted me on occasion; making the show one of a Melissa's better looking titles. The bitrate was almost always hovering in the mid 6 Mbps area and the picture struck me as being at least as crisp as similar efforts by the company over the years, perhaps the compression ratio or other technical aspect strengthening the picture more than a little bit in the process used to convert the scenes to DVD's MPEG-2 codec. The audio was presented in 1.0 Dolby Digital monarual English using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate, generally sounding lackluster with no depth, separation, or major range in the dynamic of the track. The vocals were minimal in most cases and the background noises rarely noticed; the automatic gain such that it did bug me at times.

Body of Review: Melissa Lauren is probably best known for her many performances in porn though she has dabbled as a director, most recently for Diabolic Digital. I know that it is popular for naysayer's to proclaim performer/directors as figureheads, especially women, these days but I saw some differences in Melissa's latest release, Un-Natural Sex #22, from the last volume in the series I reviewed, Un-Natural Sex #20 (by the deceased Chico Wang) so I wanted to give her a shot. My primary reason for picking this one up was the casting of Aubrey Addams, Annette Schwarz, and of course, Brianna Love but it's been awhile since I've seen Melissa behind the camera so that piqued my curiosity too. The premise of the series is to showcase ladies that give up their ass and do hardcore action, so those of you focused solely on the backdoor will be happy to know each gal did as advertised. The scenes all had a slightly differing appeal too, largely thanks to the talents and manner in which the ladies all offered something different to the mix. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Britney Stevens, a curvy brunette with long hair and a desire to be fucked, was up first with Mick Blue and Sascha on the couch. She demanded two "fucking cocks" and unleashed their rods from their pants, sucking both of them in turn while alternating at jerking them off. The deepthroating was easy for her and she appeared to relish the taste of the dicks stuffed inside her mouth, her limits only slightly stretched by the men working her over. Mick rubbed her moist cookie first and that gave him first dibs on poking it, both guys drilling her there and her mouth as the camera caught the action. It wasn't long before the men started taking turns with her ass too, the taste testing plentiful as she continued to engage them; telling them to "pound it" in regards to her "dirty ass". The DP action (double penetration) came next, followed by the facials the men provided her open mouth, Britney swallowing their loads of population pudding easily. There was some chemistry but more energy in the scene, a nice way to start the movie.
Scene Two: Nadia Styles, one of the cutest gals in porn for several years now, was up next as she teased in the living room setting while wearing her skimpy outfit that peeled off nicely. Nadia playfully masturbated as the camera captured the action, her moves fluid and showing her at ease in her role until she too was offered up a duo of dick to orally work over. Her blowjob skills were very polished and she reveled in rubbing the rods on her face, partnering up with John Strong and James Deen this time. John was the more driven of the two men when it came to how hard he ended up fucking her, James providing the second string meat stick that got in the way as much as enhanced anything about the scene. Nadia was really orally fixated though so seeing her actively ride the cocks was just a bonus in some ways, all three of her holes given some attention as she applied dirty talk to make the scene better. This was far from her most active scene in recent times but even as she appeared to be faking it most of the time, her performance was still well worth watching for fans like myself. She also did some DP work but my favorite part was when she fingered her own ass as John plugged her biscuit tight. The scene ended with a titty pop and a facial that she licked clean (a bit at least) with the scene added some value for me.
Scene Three: MacKenzee Pierce, a lean gal with an all natural body, was up next as she followed the formula in the living room setting as expected. Her meaty ass was looking quite sweet and after the tease, she was shown to be working with studly Marco Banderas himself. She had already masturbated herself into a heightened state of arousal with some anal beads, but Marco drove her crazy as the first guy in the show to provide some oral loving on his partner; eating her ass before diving his cock into it as she requested. The chemistry between them was the best of the movie to this point and she took her time accommodating the thrusting penis into her backside, the perfect pucker looking best when she rode him hard and fast. She took every last drop of semen into her mouth for swallowing, showing that the movie was getting better as it progressed.
Scene Four: Laurie Vargas, a lean Latina in pink booty shorts and a white fishnet top, was up next with agent Ben English; the generic setting and music pretty much the same as the rest of the movie. The almost romantic nature of the music was a bit weird for me but once the scene started for real, her unpolished performance was kind of interesting to watch; Laurie manhandling his dick before aggressively blowing him. She jerked him off too, dropping to her knees when he demanded it, her hairy pubes not slowing him down in the slightest. The emphasis was on anal here but she was barely able to take it, the newcomer styled attitude probably appealing to some of you more than a little as she squealed out in a mixture of pleasure and pain. As the scene progressed, she got more into it though, the vaginal action more enthusiastic but Ben's surprisingly large facial proving he must have had a few days off.
Scene Five: Aubrey Addams, the incredibly cute blond on the front cover, was up next as she teased in front of the black leather chair, her sweet eyes and lean body making her look way too young for this line of work. I noticed her ass looked fleshier than previously, a good thing I assure you, but the same could be said for her tease too. She was set to work with muscular Derrick Pierce this time, the guy coming up from behind her to diddle her to a moistened state. She then blew him with a smile and stated pumping her pussy down on his dick, her ass cheeks rippling as she drove herself down on the guy. He started fingering her ass while boning her, leading to her backdoor surrendering to his needs, Aubrey pushing herself almost as hard during the anal as the vaginal action. Derrick popped a very small pop to her ass when Melissa Lauren came out of nowhere to lick some of it up in nice surprise.
Scene Six: Brianna Love, the curvy blond with the golden ass of the past year, and nasty anal queen Annette Schwarz, another gal ascending to new heights of late, were then up with studly Mick Blue after the ladies teased outside in the nicely lit day in the sun. The sex itself took place inside the living room as expected, no transition shot provided for the change in locations, as the ladies double teamed Mick's meat orally with a lot of flair. Aubrey was cuter but these two ladies were going at him full tilt, each seeming to push the other further into hard core territory as they stripped off their sexy lingerie. They licked his nuts and shared his cock a whole lot, jerking him off almost to orgasm before they slowed down a bit to take turns fucking. The face sitting added value and the taste testing was well done, the scene coming across as the shortest of the lot (but well done overall). The ladies knelt to share his pop shot on their faces but Annette caught it all and cumswapped it to Brianna (and back); the ladies kissing as they swapped semen with additional passion occasionally missing from the scene itself.
Summary: Un-Natural Sex #22 by director Melissa Lauren for Diabolic Digital was a nice piece of work thanks to the casting of most scenes so I rated it as Recommended. The replayability, stroke value, and amount of fuck for the buck was sufficient to draw my attention a few times and it was clear that Melissa is learning to provide an increasingly solid effort as a director. In short, Un-Natural Sex #22 was better than Un-Natural Sex #20 for me, proving that the need for circus act sex to prop up the scenes as in the past volumes of the series was minimal; the strength of the performances sufficient to elevate the production into one worthy of your consideration.
