Cast: Samira, Aliana Love, Tony T., Mackenzee Pierce, John Strong, Steven French, Summer Verona, Megan Monroe, Justin Long, Kristina Rose, Camryn Kiss, James Deen, Jessica Lynn, Elena Heiress
Length: 166:58 minutes
Date of Production: 5/4/2008
Kristina Rose and Camryn Kiss
Extras: The best extra was the 22:23 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by a bunch of people on set (including Ivan, Chris, Ricky, and maybe Tony). There was more tease footage, more sex taking place, and some of the cast goofing off so it was well worth checking out. There was also a pop shot recap and a photogallery as well as a true double sided DVD cover and slip case for those who care.

Audio/Video Quality: Sweet Cheeks 10 was presented in an interestingly shot 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color by director Ivan for Anabolic in the MPEG-2 codec. This version of the show was the SD (standard version) so it was not as clear or crisp (from what I'm told) as the Blu-Ray release but it wasn't bad looking for the most part. The lighting was such that a lot of the scenes looked washed out, the glare of the lighting bouncing off the ladies or the lack thereof causing the colors to look too saturated. Still, the composition of the camera angles showed an invasive interest in the ladies having fun, capturing the heat of the gals going at one another and attacking the cock, making for a lot of fun indeed. The video bitrate on this MPEG-2 version was in the mid 5 Mbps most of the time I paid it any attention, some aliasing and grain observed (along with slight amounts of macro blocking) but still, it was better than I'd heard from reputable sources so I can only imagine that the high definition version looked even better (I believe this was the second or third movie the company released in Blu-Ray, the first one looking pretty solid). Having seen some of Ivan's demo work (mainstream material too), I know that he will adjust to the rigors of high definition in due time, this merely a stepping stone in that sense that showcases his potential only fairly well. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital using the 192 Kbps bitrate (with optional music). The music was subdued and not intrusive at all so if your player supports the function, by all means leave it on even if it was generic in nature. The vocals were slightly hollow with no separation but I could hear the ladies at all times, the pairing off making it tougher but not too bad either.
Body of Review: Ivan is probably the best known director at Anabolic these days, his mainstream projects gathering him more acclaim but his porn inducing plenty of personal accolades from what I've heard in his stint there. A "no-frills" type of director, Ivan tends to provide a decent amount of tease from the ladies but never loses sight of the fact that a great many viewers are even more interested in the ladies getting down & dirty as early as possible so I was glad he managed to balance the two concepts nicely in Sweet Cheeks 10. While I haven't seen much of the series to date, a few of my fellow reviewers have found them to their liking, claiming that Ivan is "the next William Nutsack" despite my protests that he's his own man. This time, he managed to show a lot of oiled up hotties getting frisky for the camera, including a number of gals that haven't been "shot out" as is the case all too often these days in gonzo. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Samira and Aliana Love, a couple of curvy brunettes with ample sample asses, were up first as they teased by the pool, oiling up helping to make it especially nice as far as I was concerned (not pouring it on in excess like the fabulous BWA series but enough to slicken up their bodies really well indeed). The music played while the gals frolicked by the pool, the montage providing some of the best action of the scene for me. The ladies were then situated inside the house, both wearing black & blue lingerie that looked sexy on them, their seductive moves practiced on each other before they took care of Tony T. I thought the camera settings looked better for outdoor work but the raw energy was pretty solid here, Tony giving a nod to giving oral before fucking them in turns and getting some head from them. The screwing was moderately active here, not the best of the movie but enough to add some strokability to the scene. Thankfully, Tony didn't talk a whole lot here, that tendency of his weakening many scenes in the past, but the ladies getting the center stage here. There was some PTM here too but the chemistry between the ladies carried the scene even further right up to the ending facial making it a decent opening scene even with the limited toy use (and as with any "last boy/girl scene", it was a fond farewell).
Scene Two: Mackenzee Pierce, a shapely little gal wearing pink and yellow undies, was up next as she followed the formula, the tease montage well cut but showing some moiré and extra video noise. Her fleshy ass was a delight to behold though and it ended far too quickly and even my appreciation of the oiling action wanted more. She was paired up with both studly John Strong and hairy Steven French, the guys jumping towards the masturbating trollop on the couch to find her lovable oral fixation making their days shine. She sucked nuts and jerked them off as she blew them, looking almost angry at the camera when she gave it any notice at all. John boned her first, hammering her sweet pussy as she continued working wonders on Steve using her mouth, wrapping her lips around his cock like a champ. She was soon getting a DP as her ass went into the action, Mackenzee trying to remain as active as possible as she caught her breath. There was a little bit of dirty talk too but she was more focused on them trading off in her ass than anything else going on. She was always more active bouncing on a single cock though, even as she inhaled the second one, so I was happy that this kind of action constituted the majority of the footage here. Her anal gape was large and the men dropped loads on her ass cheeks, skipping her mouth altogether.
Scene Three: Summer Verona, a very sexy gal I was lucky enough to meet at the AEE earlier this year, was up next out by the pool on the sunny day, shaking her money maker really well even before she stripped off her small outfit. The lean Latina's ass was really appealing too, her DSL's inviting and the seductive nature of her physical appeal something special. Once the montage finished up, she was interviewed on the couch inside, changing things up a bit but giving some background about the gal before Tony T. pounced on her. He massaged her ass cheeks as he nuzzled her breasts, moving to sucking her ass as she moaned in pleasure. He then started banging her pussy from behind in a standing doggy, her nipples getting harder as he plowed away. The majority of the scene had him tearing into her biscuit though, lovely Summer not as active a ride as hoped for but still looking good even after he rubbed out a wad of population pudding into her mouth to be swallowed.
Scene Four: Megan Monroe, a busty blond with way too much make up on, was up next in her pink & white checkered outfit that hugged her form so effectively. Her muscle tone was very pronounced on her ass and legs in particular, the montage in the house sadly skipping the oil portion of the tease just as Summer's scene did. This one had a lot more oral though, Summer preferring Justin's large black cock in her mouth as far smaller Tony tapped into her pussy. They fucked in various positions but she withheld her ass from the equation, both Justin Long and Tony T. giving her a run for the money, Justin popping on her ass after Tony dropped a load into her mouth.
Scene Five: Kristina Rose, Camryn Kiss, and James Deen, were up next after the return of the ass oiling montage outside by the ladies. They were playful and enthusiastic, their all natural curves looking ever better as the scene progressed. The fun montage led to a slower paced lesbian bit of fun on the indoor couch, James coming in when he was suitably ready to start cleaning their asses with his tongue. Some pocket rocket action later and James was fucking them, the gals moving to oral duty as they engaged in PTM and swallowed his sword. The ladies were very active riders here and there was some other toy use in the form of an anal plug and a string of beads but James was not on booty duty that day so they settled for the vaginal and oral to make it happen. The ladies took the mouth pop and shared it to conclude the fun, a decent romp in my book.
Scene Six: Jessica Lynn and Elena Heiress, the two cute gals on the front cover, were up next as they skipped playing outside for some oil-based massaging on the couch, some well rounded rumps worthy of my time on display. Tony T. interrupted them to kiss their asses, shaking some flesh as he warmed them up to his repertoire of services. They blew him and jumped his bone, sharing it but showing some chemistry with the guy as they did so. He liked when they spent time on his nuts (something I hate myself) but the gals appreciated going down on each other while he fucked them more. The scene ended with an ass crack pop shot that was sucked it with a swallow, the short version being that Tony wasn't up to handling them all that well this time.
Summary: Sweet Cheeks 10 by director Ivan for Anabolic was a lot of fun to appreciate and well worth a rating of Recommended thanks to the amount of fuck for the buck, replay value, and strokability provided by the cast. Ivan showed he could reign in various personalities and milk decent scenes out of them too, the high definition version probably clearing up many of the minor technical issues that were slight but noticeable. In short, Sweet Cheeks 10 definitely had a lot of sweet looking cheeks proudly displayed by the nine attractive women, only a few of them really mediocre in their performances but all were looking worth a few loads.
