Length: 150:08 minutes
Date of Production: 4/17/2008
Diana Doll/Sue Diamond with Mick Blue
Extras: There was a 4:36 minute long Behind the Scenes feature but it was too short to provide any background other than some photoshoot material for the most part. There was also a photogallery and a cumshot recap but that was it outside of the true double sided DVD cover and slipcase.
Audio/Video Quality: Tease Before the Please 2 was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Gregg Alan for Diabolic Digital in the MPEG-2 codec used by standard definition releases everywhere. The lighting was almost always decent; optimal on the bodies as it limited the grain, video noise, and shadows other productions seem unable to get rid of far too often; but the visuals were not perfect either. The composition of the shots weren't always completely flattering to the ladies but at least there was rarely any doubt about what was going on and where it was going; given the quality of the cast, this made it more enjoyable too. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the bitrate hovered in the mid 4 Mbps area so it looked very appealing in most ways to my jaded porn hound eyes. There were no compression artifacts and the visuals were generally handled pretty well here too for those that care about the nitty gritty details. The audio was presented in a 1.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate. The music was generic but the vocals; while plain as could be, could be heard in almost all cases; only slightly hollow at times when the ladies were making it clear their limits were being pushed. There was no separation here given that it was a monaural track and the dynamic range was limited too but I had no issues with the audio this time.

Body of Review: Gregg Alan has directed some fine porn for Diabolic Digital in recent times, making his better series something to look forward to for this reviewer. His latest effort coming to me was Tease Before the Please 2, the sequel to Tease Before The Please 1 that so many of you seemed to appreciate. The idea is a simple one used by top directors all over the industry too; get attractive women that like to fuck, have them tease a little bit before the sex starts, and turn them loose on guys they want to fuck. If that sounds good to you, imagine how it sounds to a reviewer that gets to see dozens of generic titles every month, hoping for a spark of interest to appear in the eyes of the performers. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Bobbi Starr, the lean brunette with pretty eyes and a love of hardcore sex so popular these days, was up first as she writhed on a bed to show her thong and small top as part of the tease. There wasn't enough tease for my tastes but she then went to the living room to paw Talon, enjoying his muscular physique as she aurally turned him on. He played it cool as she climbed into his lap for a lapdance, rubbing her barely clothed ass on his jeans-covered pants to get him erect before she took off her top. That was when Jenner walked in, the mope questioning what was going on as he joined them, Bobbi starting to suck them both off with a hint of tease applied. Bobbi has a world class set of oral skills and she did them with and without her hands, the dirty talk coming forth when she wasn't otherwise occupied wrapping her lips around their cocks. The men took turns fucking her pussy too, the anal slowing the active riding gal down substantially during the DP but otherwise showing Bobbi to be a decent ride (except for her over the top moaning). Bobbi did taste testing (PTM and ATM) but rather than this amounting to her best work, it was merely a pretty good ride for fans to appreciate, the men rubbing out loads of population pudding into her mouth to finish it up.
Scene Two: Alektra Blue, a brunette with large implants and purple lingerie, was up next with a dream filter applied, the gal gyrating on the granite countertop nicely enough to remind me of her popularity too. She continued this dynamic as she interrupted Mark Wood reading the newspaper, her ass looking particularly fetching to him as she kept quite while he nuzzled her breasts. He went down on her and she liked it, Alektra withholding her charms from him to get him ready to go, the oral going both ways as each gave the other some pleasure. Her blowjob was too short but she made up for it with an active vaginal ride, impaling her biscuit on his rod before demanding his cock in her ass (fingering it to show just how loose it was). It was a decidedly passive anal ride and she licked his balls to inspire his jerking off a wad of semen to her face, another fair scene to check out.
Scene Three: Alexis Texas, a curvy blond from the Lone Star State, and leaner cutie Cayden Moore, were up next as they played with each other in their black lingerie, the lesbian antics broken up for the most part by the introduction of Mark Wood in the bedroom. Alexis licked the tip of his cock and rubbed her famous ass on him, the gals then double teaming him orally before they started riding his cock pretty actively. Alexis was active from the very first poke and Cayden took awhile but came around, my personal preferences for Alexis not coloring my perceptions as she truly was the best thing about the scene (sorry Mark...). It was another straightforward bone-fest though as the tease elements catered to initially were not played up for very long, the lack of sparks between the trio weakening it enough that even as a fan, I wouldn't likely return to the scene unless Alexis asked me too while grinding in my lap. The scene closed up with the ladies draining his balls dry during the facial, the camera cutting out before potentially showing any cum swapping worth mentioning.
Scene Four: Ann Marie Rios, a lean little brunette that has been in the industry for awhile, was up next in pink bikini undies to slowly tease the camera as she undressed to some lame music. Her smile was nice and she continued the theme on the bed with scrawny James Deen, licking the unshaven hobo before giving him a show of his own. The rest of the scene followed suit with the theme of the day, the couple going at it like chemistry-filled teenagers on prom night. Ann was very active here and seemed to really get off with James, following his lead and providing a stand out performance. It was oral and vaginal only but all the signs were there to display why she is definitely an under rated performer these days. The pop shot went to her crotch for those that care and as minimal as it was, she tasted it like it was nectar of the gods. Yum!
Scene Five: Diana Doll/Sue Diamond, a curvy blond European gal that I happen to appreciate very much, was up next in pink satin lingerie that looked very nice on her lean body. Sue is not a kid anymore but she looks better every time I see her, the cutie tossing Mick Blue to the black leather couch to gyrate her naked pussy just out of reach of his tongue. She did dip down to give the lucky man a taste of her box, but she was more interested in blowing him seductively, the sparks between the real life couple substantially better than most scenes in the flick. That led her to actively bouncing on his penis as though scratching a deep seated itch, providing an over the top but believable vaginal romp (with taste testing); Mick going back to taste her as well. They continued in various positions and he jerked off to her chest, the heated pairing another reason to appreciate the movie as far as I was concerned.
Scene Six: Teagan Presley, the skinny babe featured on the front cover, was up last and the main reason why I picked up a copy of the movie in the first place, her outfit in the movie red but the scene shot in an artistic manner that really stood out as weaker than the others, a dynamic I might expect of auteurs in the industry but not a "meat & potatoes" guy like Gregg. She was on the bed when a business suit attired man walked up behind her, the guy best known to me as the mighty Evan Stone. Seeing as how Teagan has been working with a series of mopes for awhile now, this was a nice change of pace, my desire for her to gain a few pounds still unfulfilled but her pretty face looking an enticing as ever. She playfully pawed at him and teased a little, causing him enough tension to tear open his outfit with buttons falling to the floor, the guy using his necktie to rub her goodies in a heated manner. His cock was too large for her to handle much orally and he had some erection issues, Teagan repeatedly discarding his request to suck his balls, but she did the best she could before the moderately active vaginal ride. Her implants looked really out of place here (hopefully, those were the ones she auctioned off on EBay last week) but as the scene continued, she got into a rhythm that worked more actively into the show. I don't think she'll be ready for this much cock any time soon given her statements to the media but even if it wasn't in her top scenes of the year, she took the mouth pop well enough and ended the movie better than it started.
Summary: Tease Before the Please 2 by director Gregg Alan for Diabolic Digital was best when the personal chemistry of the performers was hitting on all cylinders such as Ann Marie's scene or Diana/Sue's scene but the cast showed Alexis Texas looking ripe and hot too and the mixed quality of performances resulted in a rating of Rent It. If a high definition version of the movie exists in Blu-Ray, that might be enough to upgrade the rating (I'd have to see it first to make a final call though) but the technical aspects of the movie were good enough have some fun with it. I found it funny that Pat Myne was credited as one of the cast members too since he was nowhere in sight, perhaps he dropped out after the cover and credits were approved and flaked at the last minute. In short, Tease Before The Please 1 was far from a bad porno, it just needed better pairings and more tease to fulfill the advertised theme since even such a solid cast can't necessarily make it without a director encouraging them to be their best.
