Cast: see scene list below
Sixteen hotties take matters into their own hands in "Masturbation Nation," a fine collection of 16 frigging femmes -- some very familiar, others not so much. There's no squirting on view, so you'll have to take it on faith that these girls are truly getting themselves off; displaying lusty vigor, they make it easy to believe.
Director Tom Byron appears to have culled some of these scenes from other productions in which these actresses had on-camera sex with him (Bobbi Starr's fishnet stockings and bedroom setting, for one, are identical to her work in at least one other Byron DVD). But that's not a complaint. Whatever their motivation, all 16 ladies are game for onanistic action.
There's no written dialogue in the 15 scenes, or pre-interviews with the girls, just some preliminary posing, set to background music, either indoors or outside by the pool. Once the girls settle onto the sofa or bed, the music stops so that every moan can be clearly enjoyed. The women climax in fairly short order, which means that A) they got themselves worked into a frenzy (either solo or with help) before the camera rolled, B) they're horny as hell and can reach orgasm at will, or C) they're just pretending. I'd like to think it's B.
Especially notable is the inclusion of naughty young thing Sasha Grey, who is crossing over to the mainstream in a big way as the star of Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience." Catch the cat-eyed beauty in all her glory here; if she turns out to be great in "GFE," who knows how much more porn she'll do.
Here's the scene-by-scene lineup of masturbators, along with their predominant mode of self service. In case you ever hook up with one of them at a trade show, you'll know how they like to be handled.

THE DVD Like other Tom Byron discs, this one is simple to use but pretty well stocked. Pop it into your player and you come right to some sex ads, which can be sped through or clicked past. The no-nonsense, non-motion main menu leads to a full-motion scene menu that IDs the girls. (Each scene has two chapters.)
Extras include a photo gallery, more sex ads, an interview with Byron and trailers for other Bryon titles ("Seasoned Players 6 and 7," "P.O.V. Cocksuckers 7," "Big Ass Fixation 3," "House of Asses 8," "Lord of Asses 13").
In the 10-minute Byron interview (conducted while he's driving in Los Angeles), the auteur relates how he put his music degree aside to head to California in 1982 with the express purpose of doing porn. His first scene, with a "coked out blonde," was a nightmare, but he learned to have more fun as time went on, and he insists that after all these years of fucking hot women for money, he realizes how lucky he is. "I ain't jaded," he says with a smile.
The shot-on-video scenes are presented in 16:9 widescreen. The camera work is nonflashy -- the lenseman mainly gets down at the foot of the bed and frames the girl's entire spread-legged body, or her occasionally circles around his subject. Many of the chicks make serious eye contact with "us."
THE LAST WORD
If you want to see girls interacting with cocks, check out the trailers or the sex ads here, or get another DVD. But if you love watching hot and horny women doing the most intimate things to themselves, then you've come to the right place. The performers are all uninhibited and clearly love to spread it wide for the camera and reveal their particular sticky finger exercises.
