Extras: The best extra was the 8:41 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, using Annette Schwarz on camera as an opener while Juan took still shots of Jaelyn Fox but Juan taking over after that. It was too short and served mainly as a teaser, but I would be lying if I said I didn't appreciate the footage as being better than nothing. There was also a photogallery, a cumshot recap, and a true double sided DVD cover with a fetching slipcase to go with it.

Audio/Video Quality: Cum Swapping Sluts #13 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Juan Cuba for Red Light District. I'm familiar with his work at Platinum X Pictures/Red Light as a behind the scenes guy and his skills as a full fledged director at various companies has been getting pretty good, even if the rough edges are slow to disappear. The lighting was only average though and this led to some issues with grain, video noise, and shadows yet he did a reasonably good job overall in presenting a solid set of visuals. The composition of the shots seemed to enhance the look of most of the ladies, showing more improvement than most of his previous works. There were no compression artifacts (though the bitrate hovered around the lower 4 Mbps range) so even the mastering of the DVD was handled well and some of you will appreciate the lack of the formerly displayed watermark of the company logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen during the show. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo (in 192 Kbps) was in English but the actual audio appeared to be shot in monaural with the processing added later on (in the mastering part of the process). The vocals were generally clear but lacked any separation or dynamic range so this is an area that Juan needs to work more on (just like most of his associates in the industry). The music starting each scene was really generic but that was probably the only real surprise for me in terms of negative technical matters, the rest being pretty decently handled.
Body of Review: Juan Cuba is arguably the best long time director at Red Light District these days, most of his peers having left during the cutbacks of the past, and to be frank about it; his love of the ladies seems to shine through in almost everything he directs. To me, that is a very good thing as it tends to put the ladies at ease and allows them to give their best performances unless you're into the kind of hardcore abuse porn where pushing limits turns you on. Juan's latest release for the company to make it my way is Cum Swapping Sluts #13, a series I last saw with Cum Swapping Sluts #11, is based on a single sexual act that some of you might find more appealing than I do; cumswapping at the end of each scene. Essentially, each scene has two women (far preferable to the alternatives) that suck and fuck until draining a male partner dry of semen. They then take the load in their mouths to swap it back and forth, presumably, but not always, for one of them to swallow it. Personally, once I drop a load, I don't care where it goes as long as it isn't on me or an area where I'm about to roll over and go to sleep on but just as the popularity of facials took off years ago as a means to "prove" the sex was real, people crave variations in their porn. The line up this time was pretty sweet too, from my favorite anal queen, Annette Schwarz, to some exceptionally attractive newcomers, so Juan had a lot to work with in the four lengthy scenes but my question of the day was; could he pull it off where others have failed?" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lexi Belle, a cute little blond, and fetish loving redhead Sara Faye, were up first with James Deen after the ladies engaged in some lesbian antics that worked fairly well as tease. Sara's black gloves explored Lexi's pussy a lot and prepared it for a large red dildo; James stroking it off on the sidelines as he watched them go at it. The ladies took time to orally stimulate the guy, Sara preferring to climb aboard for a slow vaginal romp. Lexi was less active about how she rode him and his attempts at abuse porn (spanking her hard) did little to elevate the dynamic a whole lot. The gals, Lexi in particular, spent a lot of time giving each other head as James took them in numerous positions and Lexi tried to get some action from Juan as she masturbated; James seeming to prefer stuffing his hand (sans thumb) into Sara's biscuit while the cock was in there, getting Lexi to add to the pile. There was a technical DPP too (one cock, one toy) but that only detracted from the scene as far as I was concerned, Sara taking the rubbed out load to swap it with Lexi and back; the wad of population pudding messily going all over them.
Scene Two: Annette Schwarz, my primary reason for picking up the title, was up next in the expansive RLD warehouse wearing her yellow booty shorts and white mesh gloves. Her goal of the day was to play with hotty Jaelyn Fox and studly muscleman John Strong; a fortunate combination from what I've seen in recent times. Annette was dominant and she pulled Jaelyn out of a dumpster styled device to lick all over; Jaelyn's neon pink top and boots contrasting with her black mesh panties. Annette then carried the gal over to a well placed couch and the sexual fun really kicked in, both ladies showing tremendous potential for oral skills and a lot of active penetration. Annette took John's cock anally (of course) while Jaelyn masturbated her blemish-surrounded pussy, Juan admonishing Jaelyn to not touch her friends (she did anyway though). That led to Jaelyn tossing John's salad as he fucked Annette's perfect pucker, Jaelyn getting some vaginal action before Annette milked him dry when he rubbed his wad on their faces. The ladies cumswapped the load and shared it nicely, Annette getting the lion's share before "putting Jaelyn away" for another day. Whew!
Scene Three: Jessica Lynn, Kristina Rose, and Mark Wood, were up next as Jessica sucked Mark off while Kristina masturbated on a nearby couch. I liked Jessica's blue mesh outfit but her oral skills were pretty decent too. Juan spent more time capturing Kristina's solo act at this point and while I would have gone another route, it did lead to the gal joining her coworkers so it wasn't all bad. Jessica was an active cock rider that bounced on his rod so hard it would be reasonable to describe it as "impaling herself", Kristina providing a stream of dirty talk along the way. Kristina took her turn after that, offering not nearly as heated a ride, trying a few positions before superior Jessica ate her out while Mark pounded the blond cutie (brunette Kristina still talking up a storm). Kristina got better toward the end but the ladies were soon swapping semen; Mark and Jessica the highlights of this particular scene (Kristina is usually better than this; what happened?!?).
Scene Four: Kylee Reese and Courtney James, the attractive gals sported on the front cover, were up last and while some of you might fuss about the movie only having four scenes, isn't it better to have four quality scenes than six that were lame? Granted, it wouldn't be fair to state this was Juan's best release of recent years as he seemed saddled in the formulaic approach but the cast wasn't bad and seeing these two ladies out by the pool was sweet enough for the moment. They were wearing fetish attire and the scene formally started after the tease, tease missing from some of the other scenes, at one of the more popular locations in porn valley. The door was opened by Courtney would gave Juan a show in POV fashion, the sounds of sex followed after she gave a solo scene. Kylee was getting fucked by James Deen and Courtney moved over to join them, both gals doing some oral (largely PTOGM; pussy to other girl's mouth) and vaginal screwing as they alternated on the meat puppet. The sharing is caring attitude the ladies had toward James was carried forth to the ending of the scene when James gave them a modest load, the spew moving from Kylee to Courtney and back a few times until the credits rolled. The scene was pretty good in terms of replayability and chemistry, the energy levels wavering only slightly at times but never even approaching the quality of the second scene.
Summary: Cum Swapping Sluts #13 by director Juan Cuba for Red Light District might not set the world afire but it was certainly good enough for a few loads from your personal collection so I rated it as a Rent It. Annette did rule the day here and the "cute" factor of several of the other ladies did manage to give me pause but the long term viability of the movie for collector's not driven by any of the cast in particular was kind of low. In short, Cum Swapping Sluts #13, like Cum Swapping Sluts #11 before it, was best suited for those of you with a real need to see cumswapped seed.
