Overview: There are a lot of adult titles devoted to the "cougar" (i.e. older women) fetish, but very few offer the cast you'll see in 3rd Degree's The Cougar Club 2. The five veteran performers featured in this release were truly the industry's superstars in the 80's and 90's, so this release has the advantage of drawing in the many fans of each of the legends that appear on this DVD. Only adding to the appeal is the fact that each segment is well-shot and a great reminder of why these women came to be adult stars in the first place...because they know how to perform on camera. For the record, all five of The Cougar Club 2'ssex scenes are condom-free.
Scene 1: The fun gets underway with Shayla Le Veaux in a black and yellow racing outfit leaning over a sports car in a large garage. She is soon encircled by a black-clad motorcycle rider, who we soon learn is Erik Everhard. Shayla's performance here is a great example of the difference between performing on camera and just having sex in front of one. Far too many of "today's stars" don't have a clue what looks sexy, and their scenes suffer. Shayla, on the other hand, uses her years of experience to give The Cougar Club 2 a strong launch. And speaking of "strong launches," Erik's so turned on by Shayla that his cock is already climaxing before he can get it to her mouth after pulling out of their final sexual position (missionary). The result has a lot of his pop going onto her chest instead of her face, but Shayla's done such a great job, few viewers will mind.

Scene 2: Debi Diamond was a nasty girl even back when she was still a young starlet. Things haven't changed with age, as one of adult's original "anal queens" takes on studs Marco Banderas and John Strong in a warehouse scene that includes both backdoor action and double penetration. In fact, we get almost as much DP action as we do anal, which is nice, since most DP scenes in porn these days only contain a minute or so of visible fun. Debi gets a nice double facial at the conclusion, with John squirting on the right side of her face, followed by Marco creaming up her left side.
Scene 3: Ginger Lynn no longer has the toned body that made her one of the industry's all-time performers, but she still knows what fans want to see - happily letting James Deen plow her anally for the majority of their scene, which like the opening scene also takes place in a garage. Ginger's been in a lot of titles playing either the MILF or cougar role recently, so I'm not sure that this ranks as the best work she's done in the past few years, but it's always great to see her in something new. This pairing ends with James jerking off into her mouth.
Scene 4: Teri Weigel was best known for two things when the former Playboy Playmate got into porn: her huge (albeit enhanced) chest, and her tendency to scream like a frightened dolphin in almost every sex scene in which she performed. While the impressive chest is still there, Teri seems to have toned down on the screaming, which may please as many fans as it disappoints. To make up for it, however, Teri talks dirty to John Espizedo virtually non-stop during their session, which takes place in a barn. For this reviewer, the highlight was watching Teri get tit-fucked early in the session, although the facial that Teri slurps up at the end is worth the wait.
Scene 5: I have a weakness for redheads, so while Brittany O'Connell's closing scene for The Cougar Club 2 is far from the kinkiest we've seen, I must confess it was my favorite to watch. Brittany is doing a sketch of Johnny Sins as the segment opens, and soon the two are going at it on a wooden arc structure in the middle of the floor that may look great on camera, but I'm guessing was a pretty uncomfortable piece of furniture to make out on. After covering most of the standard sexual positions (ending with switching between missionary and scissors-style sex), Johnny wraps things up by shooting into Brittany's mouth.
A/V Quality:The Cougar Club 2 was shot using HD cameras, and even though standard DVD can only provide a 480p resolution, this is a great looking anamorphic transfer. I can only imagine how good this title will look when 3rd Degree issues it on the Blu-ray format. The audio quality doesn't match the video, unfortunately, with this release featuring only a 2.0 Dolby track. It's solid for 2.0 and perhaps all one needs for an adult release such as this, but one can't help but continue to wish that adult studios would put as much effort into audio quality as they do video quality.
Extras: Included in the bonus materials is an additional 9-minute masturbation scene with Teri Weigel in which she gets off with a glass dildo. Also on the disc is an 11-minute behind the scenes featurette; 11-minutes of "dance" footage (featuring Brittany O'Connell and Ginger Lynn in separate segments); a 6 ½-minute cumshot loop; a 4 ½-minute slide show; and trailers for the releases of Cheaters, Cum To Momma 2, Finger Licking Good 6, Sweet Cream Pies 5, and Tits Ahoy 8. All of the bonus materials have been anamorphically enhanced and are presented in 2.0 Dolby.
Final Thoughts: Whether you're a fan of older women, adult legends or just plain well-shot porn, I can't imagine any serious adult collector who wouldn't want The Cougar Club 2 in his or her collection. Let's throw a few kudos in the direction of Miles Long, who is rarely mentioned among adult connoisseurs when talking about the best directors currently working in adult, but has been churning out some pretty impressive titles as of late (not the least of which was the original, AVN award winning Cougar Club). This one comes highly recommended.
