Cast: Delilah Strong, Tom Byron, Annette Schwarz, Brianna Love, Tatiana Kush, August
Length: 171:05 minutes
Tatiana Kush (Hey, where's Holly Wellin?!?)
Date of Production: 3/5/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 15:54 minute long Behind the Brown Door feature by Craig Daze that amounted to three separate interviews with some of the ladies (Delilah, Brianna, and August). Each gal gave some interesting anecdotes and showed off their body but I wished all of them had been given the chance. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, a slip cover for the DVD case, and spam at the beginning of the movie.
Audio/Video Quality: Lord of Asses 11 was presented in a 1.33:1 full frame color offering as shot by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures in the MPEG-2 codec. The camera work mixed it up this time with a lot of tease footage taken outside by the pool where the natural light definitely enhanced the look of the ladies before they moved inside. The video maintained a bitrate of mid 5 Mbps most of the time, reducing the obvious compression artifacts to almost none and each scene provided solid fleshtones that appeared to be accurate. The composition of the scenes was consistent too with the picture not always optimal (looking slightly faded out at times) but as far as Tom's work is concerned, it was shot with the ladies in mind; making the gals look their best for the most part. The editing was generally decent, but not showing more skill than the last time I checked out one of his movies for review, albeit I wished some of the additional tease footage was left in the scenes instead of left in the extras section of the DVD. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering at 192 Kbps. There was no noticeable separation between the tracks and the dynamic range was limited but I could hear the ladies and the music was not a factor once the scenes started in earnest.

Body of Review: Tom Byron needs no introduction to porn connoisseurs given his longevity in the business on both sides of the camera. Now that his company, Tom Byron Pictures, has allied itself with Pleasure Productions, he has been getting the word out that his form of depraved porn shows how much he favors the ladies and doesn't need to rely on circus act sex as some of his peers seem to these days. Given Tom's recent successes, I was pleased to see the cast list for Lord of Asses 11 since it included August, Delilah Strong, Annette Schwarz, and Brianna Love; all true anal princesses worthy of admiration for their skilled performances in the industry. The idea behind this series is to showcase anal sex and gals with perfect asses so these four made the show what I call a "Sure Thing", much like the mainstream movie by the same name starring John Cusack. The cover even pointed out that this would not just be an ass worship show but an anally flavored fuck fest so I was ready to dive right in to enjoy it. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Delilah Strong, the curvy cutie (front and back) seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover beside Annette) was up first to establish the formula of the show. She teased inside the house and showed off her wonderfully full booty and other parts, smiling and having a great time in the process. The heavy music didn't help but given the visual stimulation provided by the lady, it didn't hurt much either as I am a long time fan. Apparently, so is Tom Byron because he couldn't wait to get her lips wrapped around his cock, the hotty stroking him into her mouth and otherwise amping up the heat of the moment during her aggressive oral session shot in POV. Tom wanted to sample her juices so he was then planting his face between her ass cheeks and eating away, leading to the couple screwing really hard. The active vaginal led to a nearly as active anal, Delilah showing she has what it takes to succeed long term in the industry (hopefully, reports of her retirement are as premature as my load). She was loud and proud during the boning session too, enjoying the action even if the edits were so abrupt at times. The heated scene finished up when she blew him to completion, swallowing his wad of population pudding and smiling as the camera faded away. Whew!
Scene Two: Annette Schwarz, one of the leading anal queens these days in the industry, was up next as she provided a solid tease both inside and out of the house, her lean physique projecting an air of confidence few in the industry possess these days. Despite my best offers to her at the AEE this year, she wouldn't pack her bags and move in with me, apparently needing more than a two pump chump to situate with. After the tease, she gave a longer than average interview with Tom Byron, proudly showing off her assets as she prepared to suck him off. Tom went first this time, stuffing his face in her ass like many men would do, initially leaving on her red bathing suit in favor of extending the tease. The aroma coaxed him to lower her outfit to get down and dirty though, his oral leading to her swallowing his sword with German precision before they fucked like horny little teenagers. Tom did his hometown of Houston proud by the way he drilled the hotty too, perhaps in response to her deepthroating or salad tossing, perhaps because she acted like she was getting off. The vaginal screw on the couch led to the anal where she was even more active, pushing back on his rod as he boned her like he owned her. She polished him off with some ATM head (after more salad tossing) by swallowing his load. Yum!
Scene Three: Brianna Love, the gorgeous hotty seen on the lower middle of the front cover (wearing blue shorts pulled down around her ass cheeks), was up next and gave a decent tease session that relied mostly on outdoor footage taken on a sunny day. To say she is fine is an understatement and as much as I'd run away with Delilah or Annette, I'd still think of her from time to time so once Tom Byron had her in the living room post tease, it made sense that he skipped the formalities to have her slobbing his knob. She was just as aggressive as Annette and just as focused too, looking up at him with those pouty eyes of hers before they pounded into one another during the penetrative sex. While some positions appealed more to her, she was a live wire that couldn't be tamed here and this was the third scene in a row where I thought Tom must have catered this one straight for my tastes (had he replaced Tatiana with Alexis Texas, I'd swear to it!). The only time Brianna wasn't at her best was towards the end when it looked like she was looking off camera during the anal, the missionary position leading to her kneeling for the facial. Sweet!
Scene Four: Tatiana Kush, the chunky chick seem on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next and she is generally known for being 420 friendly so stoners will love her more than I do. She brought youth and a newcomer appeal to the show, something Tom Byron planned on as he diversified the cast. Her tease was mechanical and the interview pointed out that she was a last minute replacement for hotty Holly Wellin (who had cut her asshole shaving). Despite being a "second choice Sally", Tatiana held her head high and attempted to make up for it with a positive attitude, claiming to like sex as a career path. She was a natural born cocksucker and inhaled Tom's meatpipe readily, not seemingly into his reciprocating efforts on her ass. That led to a decent fuck involving her pussy, ass, and mouth. While it was a decidedly low point compared to the previous three ladies in the show (following them is a tough deal, I know), she still managed to make it worthwhile to check out, energetically bouncing on his dick as much as she was able depending on the position. I look forward to seeing more of her as she gains experience, perhaps a bit too tender for this series but still showing a lot of potential all the same. The scene finished up when Tom plastered her with a moderate load to the face.
Scene Five: August, the showcased hotty on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up last and she has been another lady to see her career skyrocket thanks to some recent work coming out in the past year, though she was always a delightful performer as far as I am concerned. The tease session showed her to be ripe and ready to rumble, her flexibility impressing me during the tease before she go down to business with Tom Byron. August stripped on his bed and was soon wrapping her DSL's around his rod, showing she liked giving titty fucks almost as much. Rather than focus on keeping her hair perfect and make up just right, she let loose the juice and seduced him orally before he ate her out and pounded the daylights out of her pussy and ass. Another great thing about her was how she took the initiative to start the fucking, making him wait to get some of her juicy ass and pussy. Like the first three gals, she was enthusiastic, energetic, and full of life affirming passion that elevated the scene in my estimation; not quite her best work to date but way up there for those keeping track. The scene ended when she took the load by her own hand (and mouth), the edit a bit too fast but still okay. Wow!
Summary: Lord of Asses 11 by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures was an extremely solid movie and I rated it as Highly Recommended based on the performances of Delilah Strong, Annette Schwarz, August, and of course, Brianna Love but Tatiana showed some nice potential too. The technical matters were a bit better than the last volume I reviewed and the heat generated was really appreciated, proving that Tom has a lot of staying power compared to many pretenders to his throne. In short, Lord of Asses 11 raised the bar enough that I openly wonder if Tom will be able to outdo himself next time or if he'll have to retire the series, knowing full well that the former Houstonian still has a few tricks up his sleeve so I'll be on the look out.
