Meggan Mallone!

Length: 151:48 minutes

Date of Production: 4/29/2008

Jessica Lynn!

Extras: For most folks, the 111:00 minutes of bonus scenes will prove to be the best extras, the five shot in anamorphic widescreen but only shown in letterbox form here. We did not receive all of them to review (such as "200 Proof") but I included detailed descriptions of the rest of them below for those who care. I actually prefer extras unique to the movie itself though so the 16:40 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was more interesting. Meggan was clearly the most important thing to cameraman Graham Crack Herr (for good reason) but it also showed the cast & crew working to make a better product; Skow ranting about religion to Shylar and Mick amusing me more than a little bit. It was a solid mix of material so I enjoyed it more than usual. There was then a biography for Houstonian Meggan Mallone, some trailers, spam, and a photogallery.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Strip Tease by Meggan Mallone was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480i resolution. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in 1080i high definition, though presented in the SD format (for now) using 1080i to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The editing was a bit choppy this time and some of the color saturation problematic, R. Rolande credited with editing and Justin Silverlake with handling post production chores but the Skow touch was evident throughout the flick. The composition of the camera angles was almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible using multiple cameras to capture more action this time (thankfully) with some help by Shylar and crew. The fleshtones were not as accurate though but the DVD mastering was well done (if only in a bitrate hovering around 4.2 Mbps), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average (if on the low side for Skow himself). The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.

Body of Review: Meggan Mallone is one of the most recent Houstonians to join the porn world as a performer, the beautiful young lady impressing everyone with her looks, her frisky nature, and the manner in which she exudes a raw sexuality indicative of the age. That was why I was happy to hear she would be getting the showcase treatment by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment; the guy the best man at the company for enhancing a contract starlet's best assets. The movie is called Strip Tease by Meggan Mallone and she has two full scenes in the flick, the other half of the movie providing some decent stroke material as well. The back cover said it like this: "AVN's favorite strip-and-tease director B. Skow gets his horny way with Meggan Mallone and the results will blow you away! We're talking ten minute teases, with full-on POV oral that's so real you'll feel the drool, followed by crazy, wild fucking as only B. Skow can shoot. Find out why B. Skow was one of the most nominated directors at the last AVN Awards show...it's the tease that delivers. And now it's Meggan's turn at the pole." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Meggan Mallone, the hotty featured on the front cover, was up first as she playfully teased in POV fashion; her incredible eyes doing as much as her sweet little body to interest me. While she wore a patterned bikini, it did not last for long as the 21 year old tossed aside her top to begin masturbating, the curious nature of the editing seen right away even if it did not immediately weaken the heat of the scene for me. She masturbated in a comfy chair, the camera zoomed in too closely for my tastes, the music changing as the scene switched gears a few times. The montage of footage was inviting (to say the least) and Skow felt her up a bit before she ended up working with studly Mick Blue. The colors alternated here as though the cameras used to shoot the material were not set the same way but Meggan looked like a million bucks all the same, Mick savoring his experience going down on her. She guided him to do just what she wanted too, making the chemistry portion of the scene higher than usual. They kissed and she gave him a quick knob slob before they actively fucked vaginally, Meggan showing Mick how much she liked the guy. Mick gave her some more oral too, rimming the cutie before she took him inside of her biscuit again, pushing back to meet his thrusts. I really liked how she grabbed him to pull him inside of her on the bed too, the ending wad of genetic juice landing on her crotch/lower abdomen. Yum!

Scene Two: Jessica Lynn, a darling little blond with a cute overbite, was up next as she teased outside, her pink bikini hugging her curves as she slowly striped it off. The butt munch and cameltoe appealed to me too, the gal having obviously had some experience teasing given the fluid nature of her performance. She posed and masturbated before being joined by horny Jerry, the fleshtones looking saturated upon the edit point. The raw energy of the couple was not as immediately rewarding as the last scene but the pair seemed to be having fun all the same. Jessica seemed ready to rumble when giving him a hummer and he appeared to be on his game when reciprocating on her pussy, the vaginal plowing showing a little less passion/chemistry but evoking a strokable response from me just the same. While Jessica was not as active a rider of cock, she did seem to enjoy going down on him between the positions, the PTM nicely done as she alternated between looking at him and the camera. I disagree with AVN's advertised comment of the movie being an "all facial POV-fest" but the individual scenes proved to be somewhat different from each other so I got the impression they were shot for separate shows to begin with. This scene ended with a load of population pudding gracing her stomach too, Jessica massaging it in before the edit came about.

Scene Three: Natalie Norton, a cute blond with a sexy body, was up next as she teased in black lingerie, shaking her ass and tits to nice effect. She had pretty eyes and fans of skinny chicks will likely adore her, the material seen in the BTS should not be missed if you find her appealing. The living room tease led to some masturbation including using a toy, Marco Banderas going down on her with enthusiasm before she jerked him off and gave him a fine blowjob. Her perfect looking pussy was enticing to the guy and both of them wanted to be bumping uglies though so they started hammering into each other, Natalie always more active when on top of his lap. The couple had minimal chemistry though so as skilled as they were, the strokable scene was not as outstanding as some of Skow's better works, her attention divided between the camera and Marco (who seemed lost in a world of pleasure most of the time). He pulled her hair and she moaned in pleasure, the dirty talk intermittent but welcome as she got more into the penetration portion of the scene. Marco ended it by rubbing out his wealth of seed on her face, Natalie giving some post coital head as the pair cooled down.

Scene Four: Meggan Mallone, again wearing bikini undies, was up last in another lengthy scene set to various music, her coy nature on full display as she teased the camera . The black and purple outfit did not last long here either as she seemed to be putting on a strip club act in front of the solid wood door, moving about the room as her lean body dictated she do before ending up on the sleigh bed. I really enjoyed her first scene in the flick and as much chemistry as she had there, I got the impression that she enjoyed working with moper James Deen even more. It might have been a youth issue or just something going on between the two but whatever the cause was, I liked it. She kept looking at him and using the knowledge gained by guiding herself to make him even happier, her relative limits displayed (she focuses on the top few inches of cocks when she blows them) but made up for in terms of her sensuality. They did some titty fucking and kissing, James waiting until well after they began vaginally screwing before tasting her clam. If nurtured, I think their passion together would become even better but it was still more consistent than any other pairing in the movie, her active riding on his pecker full of replay value. The taste testing and various positions aside, he tried to get rough with her before unloading his spew on her chest, the goo milked out during the final titty fuck. Sweet!

Bonus Scene: The Sunny Experiment: Cassidy Clay, a meaty little gal with the kind of curves real men adore, was up next in a motel room with Marco Banderas. She asked him what he wanted and he slowly directed her to reveal her body as the clothing was removed; her culos gigante driving him wild as she bent over the desk in the room (see my picture). They skipped right to the vaginal screwing as he pounded her pussy as deeply as he could go, Cassidey inhaling his juice soaked cock after they finished the first round. It was a passionate blowjob and she used her titties and hand to go at it on him, a split screen effect then used to show their mutual pleasure during their 69 act. They then went back to screwing on the bed, a modestly active ride that resulted in his wad of population pudding coating her tonsils before she swallowed it. Yum!

Bonus Scene: Power: Savanna Samson, the lovely lady featured on the front cover, was up first as an executive reminiscing about her past in a series of flashbacks. Her first included a scenario where she was a drama teacher, displaying her talents to scruffy Charles Dera and Jack Venice. She stepped up on stage where a conveniently placed stripper pole helped her put on a seductive tease, her clothing falling off to reveal the cover outfit of black lingerie, as the men drooled in anticipation. Charles was sporting wood and suggested he could give a hands on rendition of his own favorite role, that of Savanna sucking his cock while Jack ate her standing figure out from behind. Charles has reportedly been out of the business of late and Jack has had his own hands full since being found guilty of rape but they serviced her very nicely indeed, throat fucking her and licking her labia to her responsive delight before they took turns boning her like they owned her. The lighting cast a bluish tint on them but the surreal look aside (at least when they stood up), Savanna provided an even better blowjob to Jack as Charles plugged her, the teasing vaginal fuck causing her to breath increasingly harder. Savanna was a very active rider here, her pussy glistening with juices as she pushed back to meet their thrusts in several positions. Jack even thumbed her ass as he pounded her, soon unleashing a tiny wad of genetic juice on her ass cheeks as she milked the population pudding out of Charles' cock.

Bonus Scene: Sunny Loves Matt: Rebeca Linares, a hot brunette Spaniard, was up next as she teased Nick Manning to get him interested in her unique brand of physical assets over the porn he was watching (I'll give bonus points for the first five people that correctly tell me what the scene was playing in the background; movie title, performers, and director...it's an easy one). The scene started out looking a bit washed out but as she stripped, the clarity exploded, my only concern being the way her head was cut off to show her neck to cookie area better (pull back the camera!). Rebeca is one of the anal princesses populating porn, showing a willingness to get really nasty and her fiery emotional state fueling her better performances. The sultry tease in POV fashion led to her masturbating, rubbing her foot on Nick's lucky crotch. He jumped in to assist her with his hands and mouth, Rebeca reciprocating with a powerful hummer showing her abilities to their POV fullest. Rubbing her titties on his cock led to her mounting it, aggressively riding it as though she were the one doing the fucking. It was vaginal only but a crotch stirring performance to say the least, the loud screaming by Rebeca preferred over the (thankfully minimal) verbal banter by Nick at the end when he plastered her face with a large load of population pudding. Yes!

Bonus Scene: Tease Me: Nadia Styles, a sweet looking cutie all dolled up as a stripper (complete with stage and pole), was up next as she did a full routine of taking her clothing off to blaring music while James Deen and Trent Soluri threw dollar bills at her as if in a real club. Had this been a real club where they wanted to gain her attention, they'd have tossed high denomination bills her way but this being porn, we accept the quirks of scenarios such as this since they feature gals like Nadia. The strip tease lasted a long time when she pulled them up on the stage with her, the men naked and giving her mouth a hot beef injection as she alternated between them. It was enthusiastic and energetic, her squealing with delight adding to the fun even if the music was too loud for the action in my estimation. With some dirty talk and hand to gland combat, she was soon taking them in her cookie one at a time; actively pushing back on one while slurping up on the dick of the other. The guys might not be top tier talent but she treated them like royalty, never letting up as she enjoyed working with them. The scene closed out when James gave her a facial and Trent provided a crotch pop, Nadia only slightly going overboard in terms of her vocals. Yow!

Summary: Strip Tease by Meggan Mallone by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment might have had a few minor technical glitches but Meggan Mallone lived up to her reputation for being a sweet, sexy, skilled little sex kitten, the kind Vivid has turned to hiring in recent years over the picture perfect but cold types that used to frequent their fuck flicks. I rated the movie as Recommended but Meggan's scenes were both well above average for her and hopefully indicative of her future success, fans of the lovely Houstonian certainly needing this one for their collection. In short, Strip Tease by Meggan Mallone proved that Skow was every bit as on the ball as expected, the director capturing the enthusiasm and chemistry projected by Meggan Mallone and others better than you will see elsewhere so give this one a look.
