Audio/Video Quality: Jack's Teen America #22 was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground using the MPEG-2 codec in the standard definition release with a 480 resolution. The lighting was decent here, about as good as expected given this was Robby's standard type of gonzo, limiting the amounts of grain and video noise. While I generally prefer stronger lighting in my gonzo porn, Robby has a way of showing it all with less light, the tint of the colors only slightly off as a result. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question; providing a variety of styles to enjoy. The composition of the shots and the editing enhanced the look of the ladies more than a little bit too, proving what this critic has to say about the production team led by Robby (thankfully, talented Nick P. was credited as editor, Brah Bones as Production Manager, etc.). The DVD mastering showed no obvious compression artifacts (the bitrate varying but often staying around the 6.3 Mbps range when I paid attention) but this was not his clearest effort to date. This one didn't look quite as polished as his more recent titles but a quick look at the production date gave me the impression that this was shot quite a while back and looked much like the titles shot concurrently. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English (using an audio bitrate of 448 Kbps and the usual 48 kHz sampling rate) with a minimalist leaning similar to the rest of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. While there wasn't much separation between the channels though the ladies were almost always clearly heard and their moans added to the enjoyment of the show for those keeping track.
Body of Review: Robby D. is one of the busiest guys directing in the porn industry, carrying the vast majority of titles released by Digital Playground on his proverbial shoulders in one way or another. One of his best series in the past has been the Teen America titles that provided a fictional beauty contest involving a variety of ladies all trying to get a boost in their quest to win via having sex with the sound engineer's, the latest volume coming out next month with Jack's Teen America #22. Given this one will come out before Christmas, it seemed quite appropriate that it starred some of the best ladies in the business at this writing, from performer of the year Sasha Grey, to former contract hotty (and current Xcritic blogger) Adrianna Lynn (Adrenalynn), to booty queen Jenny Hendrix and German anal queen Annette Schwarz, to the ever popular Teagan Presley. It's been six months since Teen America 21 came out and all the fun was still intact, this star studded escapade surely designed to be a heavy hitter for the holiday season. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Adrianna Lynn, also known as Adrenalynn, was up first and as a heavily tattooed Texan and former contract performer (arguably the shortest contract in the company's history; seen as the second gal from the left hand side of the cover), she seemed suitable for enjoying Mick Blue after she was unwrapped from the column out back (she was wrapped in plastic wrap while naked by "boyfriend" Brah Bones). Her busty implants poked out as the smiling performer introduced herself, her alternative name labeling the wrap. Robby was heavily in the scene this time, not just his pawing hands, and he looked like he was about to jump into boning the young lady as he helped free her from her cocoon. Once released from her plastic prison, she gave her interview with an emphasis on blowing happy Mick, a quick change of attire showing her in a muff buffer skirt and tiny black bikini top. She impressed the guys with her ink and piercings as well as her ass, the comedic aspects short and sweet before she slobbed Mick's knob. Adrianna was no stranger to wrapping her lips around a stranger's cock, joyfully working the tip though not much further. I liked the POV footage and titty play a lot, Mick servicing her pussy and ass orally to reciprocate. The vaginal boning came after that as she begged for him to fuck her, Adrianna remaining passive for the most part in a way that weakened the heat of the scene. She got better as the scene neared the climax though, Mick unleashing his load of genetic juice into her mouth after some PTM.
Scene Two: Annette Schwarz, the sleek blond seen on the far right side of the cover, was up next as she came down the stairs shouting while wearing a fishnet bra and revealing black bottom, forcing muscular Tommy Gunn to take off his engineer equipment as she showed the guys why she should win the contest. Initially, this meant she dropped to her knees to service him orally, the blowjob a messy one but showing how talented a fellatrix Annette has always been. Her stretchy pants enhanced the look of her ass too, the gal bending over as if inviting rover to take over and give her a bone of his own. Annette maintained eye contact and teased Tommy with her ass too, Robby (as "Jack") copping yet another feel as her backdoor was revealed to the world yet again. The wonderful hummer led to an active vaginal fuck with some bare bones choking, Annette participating just as heavily as she pushed back to meet his thrusts with passion and enthusiasm. She licked him clean, they fucked some more, and then she proved she was just as energetic during some fine anal pounding that included ATM after she impaled herself on his cock in her back door. The scene closed out when he rubbed out the wad of population pudding into her mouth, Annette swallowing it down with ease as the cock hungry hotty went back to blowing him before asking for votes. Sweet!
Scene Three: Jenny Hendrix, the only gal not featured on the front cover but considered a cutie by most of the aficionados I know, was up next as she walked into the house of study buddy Scott Nails; the dopey dude not much for hitting the books. Exactly how this related to the contest or the series theme, I was unsure since it was a major departure thematically and amounted to a tossed in scene but Jenny looked cute and her ass was nicely supersized so I stuck it out. As the two engaged in small talk, they discarded learning about Calculus and focused on biology, her lips wrapping around his cock after she suggested she didn't know her tutoring job would land her such a prize. The hummer was slow and unpolished but well done all the same, the camera bouncing around a bit more than usual but the emphasis on close-ups as problematic as ever. Scott fingered both of her holes to reciprocate, feeding her the tainted digits and licking her a bit before they screwed. Jenny was another relatively passive rider of cock and the vaginal action relied way too heavily on Scott hammering away on her. For all her big talk about anal, she didn't do any but she did show some untapped potential as she tried to ride him in one of the cowgirl variations, her sweet ass rippling nicely as a result. The end was a standard rubbed out facial of nut juice, the theme of Scott as a sound man finally provided quizzically at the end as the jizz lingered on her face and chin.
Scene Four: Teagan Presley, the hotty in the red bikini underwear on the front cover (second from the right), her lateness for the scene explained away as her oversleeping because of an orgy. Teagan was the sound engineer this time and "Claire" was not present at the home they went to, the gal asking if she could fuck moper Tyler Durden instead (who, contrary to the ending credits, was not one of the sound guys). Her hair looked interesting due to the mane she was wearing (extensions?) and she seemed to provide some genuine chemistry with the cocky guy, her metallic top looking good as she inhaled his cock "as a hobby". The playful banter gave me the distinctive impression that the scene was shot well before the couple started their inevitable decline and breakup, her legs looking somewhat thicker too. I have always liked Teagan before she lost all that weight and she liked sucking him off, Tyler fingering her ass to prepare it for his small cock's insertion. He stuck it all the way in there and she took it with ease, the many objects and larger cocks that used to grace her backdoor making this one a picnic by comparison. Teagan was pretty active here and the "sort of" choking didn't bug me as much as her doing ATM, the couple going back to opening her ass during the penetrative sex until he was unable to maintain a full erection, Teagan saving the day as she sucked him back to life. There was some weaker camera work and editing this time, such as staying on his cock as Teagan repositioned herself, but she gaped well enough for those of you into circus act sex and there was an okay mouth pop to finish it up with.
Scene Five: Sasha Grey, the skinny brunette with pale skin on the left hand side of the cover, was up last as she was ambushed at her valet job by Jim (not Ethan as the ending credits suggested) and Jack. The interview began until she provided some public nudity beside one of the cars. I liked her ass as much as Ethan Hunt seemed to, the man going to his car to be surprised by the situation. Ethan played with her ass a little and she gave him some head between the cars, her interracial abilities again suitable to the task at hand. They didn't want to get caught though so they went inside the hotel, using the service elevator as a platform to continue the oral as well as some hardcore fucking. Ethan did give her some licking too but it was minimal as he wanted to plow her fertile fields, the couple getting sweaty as they had vaginal sex while Sasha spewed forth a lot of dirty talk. She did some taste testing (PTM) and they repeatedly fucked in slightly different positions, Sasha earning extra points for jerking him off to her mouth and swallowing the proceeds.
Summary: Jack's Teen America #22 by director Robby D. for Digital Playground had a great cast and some decent sexual decadence on parade, offering enough replay value and strokability to merit a rating of Recommended. The amount of fuck for the buck was such that fans of the cast will definitely want to check out their favorite hotties and while there were some quirks on display, I was pleased to see some of my favorite ladies having such a heated good time. In short, Jack's Teen America #22, like Teen America 21, was the kind of porn that a lot of people should appreciate for the technical values, the sexual athleticism, and the elements that made it a winner like the rest of the series has so often proven to be.
