Cast: Alexis Texas, Michael Stefano, Holly West, Mick Blue, Diana Doll, Pat Myne, Melissa Lauren, Ben English, Sophie Dee, Rebeca Linares
Length: 155:22 minutes
Date of Production: 6/12/2008
Extra's: My favorite extra was the 16:50 minutes of strip tease footage that had the ladies warming up in sexy ways wearing their lingerie. The camera showed them some loving and while some of them were far too short (it started off with only a minute of Alexis Texas before moving on), as an unadvertised extra, I applaud the feature as a nice change of pace. There was also a 12:38 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed the ladies getting ready, this being presented in crystal clear video unlike most of them for the company of late (and it was fun to watch). There was then a photogallery, some spam, and a true double sided DVD cover as well as a slip cover and pop shot recap for those that care.

Audio/Video Quality: Consumer Affairs was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Ray Bones for Diabolic 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 4.4 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: Ray Bones has proven to be a capable director at Diabolic in recent times, the company long accepted as a training ground for a wide variety of his peers over the years. Ray employs a no nonsense style that some prefer over the fancier offerings on the market, showing he believes porn is about the ladies rather than anything else so when his latest effort, Consumer Affairs, came out, I was more than happy to see if he had kept up his high standards given the cast of curvy cuties like Alexis Texas, Diana Doll, and Rebeca Linares among others. The theme this time was on showcasing gals that all swallowed the population pudding launched into their mouths, providing a good dose of genetic juice is a fitting cap for porn scenes. If this sounds like something you might like, I assure you that the cast all seemed to enjoy the salty shakes provided. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Alexis Texas, the sexy strumpet featured on the front cover, was up first in her sexy black lingerie, beginning with some dirty talk to elevate the dynamic of the scene she had with Michael Stefano. Her tits looked bigger than ever and her make up professionally applied, Alexis crawling across the floor to provide some wonderful ass tease with that superior booty of hers. That led to her sitting on Michael's face for awhile, the lucky man savoring the experience while spanking her during her monologue. They then got into a 69 where each gave the other some head, Alexis wrapping her lips around his cock and working him more enthusiastically than usual before the vaginal penetration started. He took her in several positions and began with her lying on her stomach while he porked her in a modified doggy, the increased friction nearly too much for him to take so he moved around to make himself last. Alexis was always more active on top of him and swallowed his spew readily, the genetic juice proving to her liking in this sweet scene of carnal activity. Yum!
Scene Two: Holly West, a curvy brunette wearing a skimpy green bikini, was up next as she crawled up the stairs to highlight her shapely ass during the tease. I wanted more of it but she seemed so intent on sucking off Mick Blue that she regained the points for enthusiasm as she stripped, aggressively working his rod into her mouth even though concentrating on the tip. He face fucked her and was soon slowly plowing her cookie, the passive ride by the gal not her best work to date though she started adding in some enhancing dirty talk before too long. She also showed more affinity for knob slobbing as she did the PTM between positions and moaning, getting even more passive during the anal portion of the scene. Mick tapped her ass and she yelled out porn style, though in her favor I feel obligated to point out that she took him well when lubed up enough. The scene ended as expected with her swallowing his load and while it lacked replay value, she had some potential for the future.
Scene Three: Diana Doll, a curvy blond by any name (still hooked up to Mick IIRC), was up next as she provided a truncated tease in favor of blowing Pat Myne on the couch. I haven't seen a lot of him performing of late so my nod goes to him for withstanding her oral onslaught, Diana really going to town blowing him (with her titties rocking back and forth) and Pat reciprocating more than expected. He drilled her hard and she verbally coaxed him onward, the camera intuitively placed where it could show Diana at her best with her firm ass featured really well. He spanked her as they actively fucked together, the cowgirl variations looking the best but not exclusively needed to fulfill her potential. It almost turned into a grudge fuck of sorts too, her swollen labia showing some signs of wear as he planked her balls deep, the ending wad of genetic juice guzzled down with delight as she wagged her tongue at him. Whew!
Scene Four: Melissa Lauren, a popular brunette with pretty eyes and a freshly shaved snatch, was up next in the living room wearing a sexy pink lingerie ensemble. She went right to masturbating and was joined by Ben English quickly, the pair familiar with each other as they followed the oral and vaginal pounding session. I wasn't surprised that she also did some anal here too, she has long been established as an anal lover in her body of work, but she was not as aggressive about taking it in the back door as I have seen her in the past. Still, Melissa was a good lay this time and the pair showed as much personal chemistry as the previous couples, the ending swallowing act capping a decent scene with fair replay value.
Scene Five: Sophie Dee, an English tart wearing a black garter and metal neck chain, was up next as she crawled up the stairs to greet Mick Blue and Ben English. Sadly, there was little warm up and the abrupt edit was unsettling though she was soon alternating between the men as she aggressively inhaled their cocks, showing who was in charge of the scene sexually if not altogether. The gagging noises were not my favorite aural experience but Sophie is a sexually charged gal and the men knew it, initially allowing her to blow one while the other drilled her pussy before her back door opened to allow for anal and a lengthy DP. Having seen a lot of Sophie over the years, I can safely say that she was the most versatile performer of the cast and while not my favorite in terms of looks (though still attractive), she was definitely in a league of her own when it came to milking men dry. Wow!
Scene Six: Rebeca Linares, the cutest little brunette of the day, was up last and one look at the sultry vixen told me all I needed to know. She was frisky and desirable with ample positive attitude to show for it, skipping the tease in favor of blowing Michael Stefano on the couch. She kept eye contact with him and employed some hand to gland combat as a means of increasing the friction, Michael caressing her in kind with a decided bit of extra attention to her shapely little ass. He gave oral as well as he took it from her, munching her ass before they paired fucked very hard. He had all three of her holes at his disposal too, spending most of his time with her pussy but showing she was a capable anal rider as well. Her back door showed her ability to take a cock hard and allow her to pump back, her best positions on top of his lap but always ready to serve him. She knew how she controlled him too, smiling at how he tried to get off but keeping him going all the same. The ending swallowing was well done and the movie ended on a strong note thanks to both of their efforts. Nice!
Summary: Consumer Affairs director Ray Bones for Diabolic was a consistently strokable fuck flick with substantial amounts of replay value on hand to set it apart from most of the generic porn on the market. The technical values were better than Ray has ever provided in the past (at least that I can remember) and the extras were pretty good too so I rated this one as a high end Recommended for fans of hardcore gonzo, especially fans of the cast that included Alexis Texas, Rebeca Linares, Diana Doll, and Sophie Dee. In short, Consumer Affairs was a heated bit of boning and the gals all seemed to swallow the semen without hesitation, marking this as yet another Diabolic title worth picking up for your collection.
