Cast: Julia Ann, Tom Byron, Brittany O'Connell, Rachel Love, Stephanie Swift, Shayla LaVeaux
Length: 83:54 minutes
Date of Production: 7/28/2008
Extras: There was a nice selection of extras this time, the best being the 41:24 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Craig Daze. It gave each of the ladies a chance to talk in interview form, showing limited skin but bringing up the viewer to speed on what has been happening with their careers. There was also a photogallery, some trailers, forced spam, and a slipcase for the DVD too.

Audio/Video Quality: Seasoned Players 6 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 (like most standard definition titles are, using a 480i resolution). The camera work mixed it up this time with a bit of tease footage taken outside by the pool where the natural light definitely enhanced the look of a few of the ladies before they moved inside, most settling for the inside of the house this time. The video maintained a bitrate of mid 5.8 Mbps most of the time, reducing the obvious compression artifacts to almost none and each scene provided solid fleshtones that appeared to be accurate as Craig Daze and Tom worked the cameras. The composition of the scenes was consistent too with the picture not always optimal (looking better this time though) 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 or at least as much as the point of view style he employed could make them. The editing was generally decent, showing the same level of skill as the last time I checked out one of his movies for review, albeit I wished some additional tease footage was left in the scenes or provided in the extras section of the DVD. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering at 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate. 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.
Body of Review: Tom Byron has been involved in making porn for decades now, the former Houstonian one of the most respected in the business. Tom's latest project coming in for review last week was Seasoned Players 6, another star studded volume in the series, this time graced with Julia Ann, Stephanie Swift, Brittany O'Connell, Rachel Love, and even Shayla LaVeaux. Exactly how Tom rounds up such top talent for the series when half of pornland seems on the prowl for high end MILF performers is beyond me but as envied as he may be, he delivers the goods in spades this time, much like he did in Seasoned Players 4 that I reviewed earlier this year. Considering how rare some of these ladies make porn these days, all having left contracts, retired, and fallen off the face of the industry, their performances were quite welcome in my book. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that one condom was used for those still interested:
Scene One: Julia Ann, the busty babe that left Wicked Pictures last year, was up first as she described how she had been concentrating on doing make up, the curvy gal seen on the lower middle of the left hand side of the cover set to do Tom Byron after a short interview and tease session by the pool. After talking about Janine, they ended up inside the house in the bedroom, kissing and caressing each other as their clothing was taken off. Tom chowed down on her biscuit and ass, resulting in Julia purring with approval, the talented lady slobbing his knob with lots of enthusiasm as she inhaled his turgid rod. The hand to gland action increased the friction for him and he loved it as much as she did, the couple actively bumping uglies vaginally until Julia milked him dry with a splendid titty fuck. The genetic juice flew all over her and it was "good to the last drop" according to Tom.
Scene Two: Brittany O'Connell, the gal with the neon red hair centered on the front cover, was up next as she indicated how she was still making porn but out of her home for the internet. Claiming to be better than ever, she said she had not been doing anal in a long time outside of her website work, reminded by Tom Byron of their Rosebud days with Alex. The interview was relatively short and so was the tease, Brittany's desire to be bent over the bed for Tom to spank and eat overwhelming her pleasure centers. Her milky white ass looked good spread wide apart, our director delving into her taint as she gyrated her hips as a sign of appreciation. She showed she was no stranger to wrapping her lips around a hard cock too, licking his nuts and aggressively stroking him off as she blew him. There was a little vaginal plowing taking place but they did not wait long until it was time to do the backdoor screwing, Tom doing most of the work but her loud moans serving as spank bank fodder all the same. She rode best on top of him too, taking her time to accommodate him best but soon bouncing quickly as her erect nipples displayed her desire for more. The scene finished up with her blowing him to completion, laughing as she got her face painted by his population pudding.
Scene Three: Rachel Love, the busty blond seen on the upper left hand corner, was up next as she described her dabbling in real estate, the market falling out resulting in her return to the business for the scene with Tom Byron (their days at the Dry Gulch Ranch fondly remembered). She was in the mood to be bad and was soon in Tom's bedroom blowing him, her big old titties used to start milking him dry. Rachel's need for seed was impressive and her ball handling seemed at least as skilled, the gal jerking him off as she worked his meat pipe so well. With the comments he was making, I almost thought he'd bust a nut early on her but he staved off the experience in order to fuck her silly too. They engaged in multiple positions of vaginal sex before the titty pop, her smile lighting up the room with afterglow.
Scene Four: Stephanie Swift, another former contract gal at Wicked Pictures (as seen on the upper right hand corner of the cover), was then reminiscing with Tom Byron about Cumback Pussy #6 (her first anal without Max Hardcore), the lean little gal having been under contract for nine years and last had sex with Tom almost ten years ago. Having seen her in action on the dance floor (she used to tour the country stripping), it was nice to see she has kept in shape, the tease minimal and interview filled with some awkward moments but the scene itself showing some affection. He kissed her and caressed her ass, taking his time warming her up with his hands and mouth as he peeled her clothing off her body. She pushed her ass cheeks into his face and her tan line was as prominent as his, the look on her face matching the noises she made that indicated she was having a lot of fun. He had to wear a condom since she has been condom only for a long time, only doing women for years now, but her nipples were rock hard and he continued to eat her into the various positions. She became active as the scene progressed too, vocally moaning a lot as he tapped her pussy, especially when she was on top. Stephanie liked masturbating while she slobbed his knob too, jerking him off as she diddled herself at least until Tom jerked off on her face. It was a fun scene to see her with a guy again, a guy she liked a whole lot back in their prime.
Scene Five: Shayla LaVeaux, the older gal featured on the lower right hand corner best known as "Gumdrop" in the Jim Holliday movies, was up last as the highlight act of the show with Tom Byron. She had the same raspy voice and outgoing nature, her stripper business apparently keeping her quite fit as she prepared for her first scene back in years including sex on a bed. The interview and tease outside led to them in the bedroom, the action similar to the other scenes as the formula played out. She pawed his cock and he felt her up, her blowjob going before he savored the taste of the lady. He was ready to begin drilling her though and did not want to wait, a quick lick or two before he began pounding away at her biscuit. They bumped uglies until her jazzed on her face, her open mouth receiving the seed nearly as much as her hair.
Summary: Seasoned Players 6 by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures was designed specifically for showcasing older women possessing curvy figures with a concentration on currently available superstars. As such, the movie succeeded across the board with a lot of strokability, replay value, and proved that these gals were still well worth watching so I rated the show as Recommended. In short, Seasoned Players 6 was a nice tribute to some of the most respected ladies of the 1990's porn, a few of them even winning over fans in the early 2000's so check it out as it was pretty darned solid in many ways.
