Cast: Katsuni, Chris Charming, Shay Jordan, Micah Moore, Scott Nails, Reena Sky, Jerry, Lacie Heart, Ben English
Length: 113:05 minutes
Shay Jordan and Micah Moore
Date of Production: 3/4/2007
Extras: The best extras was easily the 7:03 minute long "sort of" Behind the Scenes feature credited to "T. Baggs" that finally cut off Lacie Heart as a contract performer (Shay made reference to there being three contract girls but the graphics nixed the idea; I'll leave it at that) presented in high definition here. The funniest parts tore into director of photography Robby D, making it worth watching even for those of you that aren't into the additional sex or nudity provided. There was also a pop shot recap, a slide show with photogallery, and high definition trailers to Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, Pirates I, Cheerleaders, Babysitters, Island Fever 3, Jack's Teen America, and Island Fever 4.

Audio/Video Quality: Katsuni: Sexual Freak 10 Blu-ray was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as envisioned by director Celeste for Digital Playground in the usual AVC codec reserved for high definition releases (with a 1080p resolution too). The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release look really sharp; losing the artistic style that doesn't always work so well for me. In fact, the technical matters showed Robby's influence serving nicely to ground the scenes with less of the arty farty filters and effects that the director sometimes uses. The lighting was generally solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget; favoring a clear focus in some cases that I was convinced worked very well. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. Kurt Tortcher was the editor and together with some of the post production effects added in, added the kind of visual texture that made the release stand out from some of Celeste's other works (sometimes in a good way). The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts; with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the mid 22.3 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related showcase efforts. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 448 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate; over twice that of most porn made these days, with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were always clearly heard here.
Body of Review: Celeste is best known these days for meriting positive accolades as a female director at Digital Playground, even winning a spot on the recent Xcritic "Top Ten Female Directors" list. Presenting a woman's view of sexuality, her various series employ erotic vignettes and a feminine point of view unlike any other at the company known as a couples friendly production house to begin with. Well, now she has released Katsuni: Sexual Freak 10 Blu-ray, the latest in the series last seen starring Sexual Freak 9, this time featuring the two breakthrough contract gals so praised for their work in Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge; Katsuni and Shay Jordan. Katsuni is the well known hotty featured on the front cover and is up in two ball draining scenes while Shay Jordan was given a shorter scene in a ménage a trios along with cute Micah Moore and Scott Nails, even former contract performer Lacie Heart scoring a scene to make this a special volume in the series. The theme of the action is the same as always too, the gals are allowed to go a bit beyond their usual work to get especially freaky, nods to BDSM included as recurring ideas. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Katsuni, the Asian contract gal featured on the front cover and likely award winner for her work in Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, was up first wearing a colorful bikini as she smacked bound Chris Charming around with her riding crop. He was wearing blinders and she made it clear that he was there for her satisfaction, not the other way around. She hit him repeatedly and stroked his cock through his pants, offering him her breasts to suck before her ass, the gal mocking him at every turn. Once she was through with his tongue, she gave him his reward in the form of a great blowjob, his massive member inspiring the director of photography to ramble on endlessly about the penis he wished he possessed. Katsuni then jerked him off and squatted to allow it inside of her dripping pussy, actively riding the cock in several positions and doing some taste testing out of her biscuit before the pair tried a slower anal penetration act. Katsuni was soon riding it fairly hard too, her breasts bobbing up and down as she pushed it deeper inside of her. Once satiated, Katsuni then jerked him off to her titties, his genetic juice gracing her left tit as she continued to look him in the eye. It was a nice start to the show.
Scene Two: Shay Jordan, the other surprise hit of Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, was up next as she and major cutie Micah Moore, sat in bed wondering what they could do in the boring house. Micah then remembered she had captured a peeping Scott Nails to hold against his will in her bathroom, the tied up freak getting a lesbian show as the gals teased him while getting freaky. The camera was a bit choppy this time, bouncing around like Robby was enduring a hangover, but once the trio was on the bed, it was all good as Micah began the sexual fun by sucking him off. Shay wanted some of the action too and all three of them seemed to spend some limited time orally servicing each other. I thought the ladies had the most personal chemistry together here but Scott gave them the nailing they sought so hard, Micah the more active rider of the pair this time even though Shay was the loudest. It was not their best scene by any means but it was strokable with lots of replay value, the load of population pudding ending up mostly in Micah's mouth to share with Shay as they kissed.
Scene Three: Reena Sky, a skinny brunette wanting some action, climbed onto Jerry as he read a book on the couch. I know that sounds unbelievable (Jerry reading a book?!?) even for porn but she distracted him easily enough, brandishing a riding crop to make sure he paid her the right kind of attention. He sucked her toes through her now ripped pantyhose and then her pussy, fingering and feeding it to her before she blew him like a seasoned veteran of the industry. The throat fucking resulted in the couple screwing mechanically, sharing no chemistry but at least giving a halfway decent performance before he rubbed out his wad of sperm onto her waiting face.
Scene Four: Lacie Heart, the very cute former contract performer, was up next as a high dollar dominatrix, wielding her riding crop (sense a theme with all these props?) as she sternly ordered businessman Scott Nails to strip naked. She asked him if he liked pain and being verbally degraded, his affirmative answers prompting her to walk all over him as she smacked him around with a decadent smile. Lacie then sat on his face near the spot where his money landed, getting some oral from the guy before she reciprocated from a standing position and then in a 69. I really liked the active vaginal ride this time, the first position showing a reverse cowgirl that accentuated her shapely ass; the couple moving to the bed for some doggy and traditional cowgirl that showed Lacie more active than usual. Her labia became flaming red by all this fucking around and it wasn't long before Scott jerked off into her mouth.
Scene Five: Katsuni, wearing a black & white bikini outfit with a sparkling collar and a large tail feather, finished off the movie by taking on Ben English in bed. He smiled as she attentively bent over and undid his pants, engulfing his blood engorged cock as she again showed a propensity for servicing a meat stick exceptionally well. She practically worshipped his pecker too, focusing all of her attention as she maintained eye contact with him and worked it over. The rest of the action was pretty solid too, Ben drilling her as hard as he could vaginally and anally before unleashing his manly seed all over her face. This was Ben's biggest nut I've seen all year IIRC, plastering the right side of her face as she lightly stroked his cock with a look of self satisfaction.
Summary: Katsuni: Sexual Freak 10 Blu-ray by director Celeste for Digital Playground offered up a light BDSM theme to showcase Katsuni, Shay Jordan, and others as they engaged in heated sexual contact with their partners. The replay value was enhanced and the technical values showed them all in very clear manner having a tremendous amount of fun, leaving most of the artistic trimmings associated with the director behind this time so I rated it as a solid Recommended. In short, fans of the Asian starlet will definitely want to mark their calendar for the end of next month so they don't miss out on Katsuni: Sexual Freak 10 Blu-ray, a better showcase effort than Sexual Freak 9 was for Lacie Heart.Fans of the cast that were on the fence about which version to obtain might want to spend a few extra bucks for this high defintion version of the movie too considering the enhancement to the visual elements of the movie, though the aural aspects of the show were quite similar to the previous release.
