Cast: Eva Angelina, Mark Ashley, Amy Ried, Justice Young, Abbey Brooks, Sophia Santi, Nina Mercedez, Gianna, Steve Holmes
Nina Mercedez and Sophia Santi!
Length: 146:14 minutes
Date of Production: 3/29/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 27:00 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that began with Abbey in her bikini out in a public shower by the beach. Her fine body was sweet to the eyes and was a highlight, though I enjoyed the other ladies getting some spotlight love too (especially Eva topless overlooking the beach). Sadly, Sophia and Nina were not given any time here; perhaps something went wrong with their scenes or they went negative, but the combination of interviews and additional nudity helped elevate the level of quality for me. There was also a photogallery, a double sided DVD cover, spam, a pop shot compilation, trailers to movies like Brianna Love is Buttwoman, Performers of the Year, Annette Schwarz is Slutwoman; and a free poster of Abbey Brooks that serves as a calendar too (inside the case).

Audio/Video Quality: Swimsuit Calendar Girls was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to reduce the grain, video noise and shadows but the picture did not appear as crisp this time; likely as a result of jamming so much information on the disc (lowering the compression rate allows for more material on the same size disc). This is one area that William used to be less consistent so I applaud his efforts at continually improving the quality in his better works; proving William works at making the best porn possible. I saw a few compression artifacts (it was largely falling around the mid 2 Mbps video bitrate) and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers better than some of the director's previous works (but still on par with his more recent efforts for those in a comparison mode). The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. The scenes were largely quiet so those of you into Nutsack's musical interludes might feel left out, even the ending a techno offering sans his comedic touch. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 192 Kbps offering, plenty of room considering how little took place on it but leaving room for future efforts too.
Body of Review: William H. Nutsack is one of my favorite directors these days, his work at Elegant Angel often showing that his vision of what he finds appealing to be on the same demented wavelength as my own. He appreciates women of all types and likes to see them in sexy outfits, all oiled up, and rarely skips showing them providing excellent tease performances before the sexual encounters of his movies. His latest movie making it my way embodies all those factors I admire about him, adding in an attempt to use only top grade hotties and expand the range of the movie by adding in a lesbian scene using two women that were well established on the contract gal circuit until not long ago. The title name is Swimsuit Calendar Girls and as expected, the ladies all wore swimsuits that exposed their precious assets to the sunny days they were shown enjoying themselves for your stroking pleasure. The cast included names like Gianna, Eva Angelina, Amy Ried, Sophia Santi, Nina Mercedez, and fleshy newcomer Abbey Brooks, so I knew I was in for a treat! Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Eva Angelina, arguably one of the hottest, most talented, and well liked ladies in porn these days, was up first as she walked along the beach in her skimpy, form fitting pink bikini. She was displaying some major cameltoe and let her nipples slip before more purposeful flashing on the public beach, her oiling up too short for me but still appreciated. This led to her making out with Mark Ashley on a balcony of a nearby house, Mark savoring her sweet form with some oral loving as bicyclists passed by in the distance. Eva was dripping wet when she tossed him to the bed and started power sucking his massive rod; Eva giving him a lot of attention as she slobbed his knob enthusiastically as she slipped into 69 mode. Their chemistry together was a welcome change from some of the titles I've watched of late, the energy levels abundant too. She was enjoying herself a whole lot here and even started pushing back on his dick to show it, the anal slowing her down but not losing any of the sexual tension they were displaying as they got off. They continued until Mark rubbed out a wad of population pudding on her face where she licked him clean to close. Whew!
Scene Two: Amy Ried, the curvy young lady on the front cover, was up next, employing a similar dynamic as she teased seductively outside (eschewing the public beach in favor of a roadway and the pool around back). I could have watched her do this at great length, especially the oiling up part, but the abrupt cut to the couch where she displayed an affinity for Justice Young was pretty solid too. They kissed, pawed each other, and also showed some serious chemistry together though her anal preparations were lost considering the couple only did oral and vaginal together. Still, each went out of their way to get the other off, Amy one of the most active vaginal riders of the entire movie. Her perfectly tanned figure assisted in making her look especially appealing as well, with both of them communicating what worked to the other to escalate the impact of their positions. Justice had some minor wood issues but Amy continually applied hand to gland combat and oral loving to minimize the issue; the two playfully going at it as though they would have done it for free. Justice held her neck a time or two but did not really choke her, the facial popping out soon afterwards for Amy to like the semen off herself. Yum!
Scene Three: Abbey Brooks, the least experienced (in porn scenes) of the cast, was up next as she walked along the beach in her shiny pink bikini. She looked leaner here than I've seen in the past and I like both versions of the lady but the leaner look really worked well for her. She was teasing along the nearly deserted beach and the oiling up was sadly truncated but added something, Abbey moving to the pool in the backyard as if she were caught in the act on the beach. Rather than continue the tease, she continued up the outside staircase to greet Mark Ashley in bed, immediately jerking him off as he played with her ample sample tits. They also established some internal chemistry by servicing each other orally, Abbey finding Mark's talented tongue to be just what she wanted when joining the ranks of the porn industry. She wasn't the most active rider of the show but she did show plenty of skill in the act, making her another gal I will be looking forward to seeing more of in future titles by numerous companies. The scene closed up with a jerked off pop shot to her sweet ass cheeks, Abbey on top so the spew fell back on Mark for her to lick up. Nice!
Scene Four: Sophia Santi, the heavily tattooed brunette known for her work at Digital Playground under contract, was up next with former Vivid contract lesbian Nina Mercedez, once the two had spent some quality time alone outside by the pool to tease. Sophia was the hotter of the two to me as her all natural curves soaked in the sun but the implants and friendly nature of Nina certainly didn't hurt her own appeal. The tease seemed shorter than it needed to be and most of the lesbian loving was dedicated to oral pursuits, some of the chemistry lacking as much as the energy levels in decline. Both ladies have a lot of fans (I like Sophia myself) and the showering scene could have worked it handled slightly differently, but even the toy play that came into being when they moved to the bedroom seemed more mechanical than I'm used to from a Nutsack flick. There was some strokability though, just not nearly as much replay value as the previous scenes.
Scene Five: Gianna, a busty gal that proves my point about curvy gals being preferable to skinny waifs every single time she is in a movie, was up last and her "built for comfort over speed" body looked as fine as ever. Her playful demeanor was just as satisfying as ever too, the beach tease enough to almost cause a premature liftoff before she engaged in a bunch of heated sex with Steve Holmes. If I've ever seen her in a scene where she wasn't in top form, I don't recall it and she proved to be the perfect gal to finish up the movie with. The interior setting was a weird change from the beach though, the lighting seeming artificial and not nearly as favorable but hardly diminishing the passion displayed; both serving the other orally before aggressively bumping uglies in numerous positions. It certainly didn't hurt to follow the weakest scene of the bunch but Gianna was a class act (as expected) and made it a lot of fun with sweet replayability and high end stroke-worthiness such as the first three scenes showed (perhaps more). The ending facial went mostly in her open mouth, Gianna keeping her eyes open and providing some post coital sucking while focusing all her attention on Steve rather than the camera. Yes!
Bonus Scene: Brianna Love is Buttwoman: Brianna Love, enjoying some quality time in the pool on a float with her string swimsuit as seen on the front cover, was up last in a scene with Mr. Pete. Once again, I was impressed by the sheer amount of tease provided, whichever director making it happen now owed a drink in January when we discuss the movie. The sex included all the basics from her aggressive blowjob to the face sitting when they moved onto the couch indoors. They moved into a 69 where she could shake her ass over his head, Pete slurping away on her crack as though given but one chance to get her off. He spanked her a little too and she increased the friction while taking a seat, the vaginal and anal sex that ensued provided even more stroke value than a fan could hope for given all that went on before. Her kittenish purrs and squeaky moans then accompanied her fluid display as he diddled some piss out of her, his load joining with it on her ass cheeks while she knelt triumphantly before him. Nice!
Summary: Swimsuit Calendar Girls by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was on track to make it all the way to the top but it still showed the director offering up highly appealing scenes meriting a rating of Highly Recommended. The ending song was as funny as I've come to expect from the guy but the casting was inspired in most cases and the attempts to try something slightly different were appreciated, making this worthy of starting a new series as far as I was concerned. In short, Swimsuit Calendar Girls was a top notch effort featuring hotties such as Gianna, Abbey Brooks, Eva Angelina, and Amy Ried that most of you will find quite stimulating. Great job!
