Length: 212:24 minutes
Date of Production: 2/8/2009
Extras: The best extra was a 22:13 minute long bonus scene between Kylee Reese and Pat Myne, the curvy gal wearing pink lingerie as she teased in front of a mirror. Pat continually talked (as always!) while she did as he pleased. The masturbation portion of the scene led to them going down on each other, Pat roughing her up a bit before they actively fucked vaginally. She was over the top with her vocals but readily took the wad of genetic juice to her face, providing some post coital sucking as she stared into the camera. In all, it was a decent scene and as a unique scene to this production, it added some value. There was also a cum shot loop, a photogallery, and some trailers as well as a slip cover for the DVD case.
Audio/Video Quality: Curve Appeal 2 was presented by 3rd Degree in 1.33:1 ratio full frame or letterboxed scenes, the 480p resolution employing an MPEG-2 codec as is usually the course for a standard definition release. This being a compilation of older scenes, the directors varied with each scene, their respective styles showing up in a variety of manners including some POV work. The general thrust of the visual matters was that the solid lighting limited the various issues with fleshtones, grain, and compression artifacts, the minimal video bitrate tending to hover around the 3.4 Mbps mark when I spot checked it. Essentially, there were no significant flaws with the scenes, the gonzo approach working in most cases with the exception of how the tease footage was often trimmed for the sake of including more scenes. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot. There was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers.
Body of Review: 3rd Degree has long been one of my favorite gonzo production companies for the way they light their sets, their casting of top notch talent, and the amount of fuck for the buck they offer consumers (nevermind the frequent sales I find their back catalog titles at for so cheap). Because the company has been such a player in terms of their work, it makes sense that they release a number of compilations, the themes of which tend to jump right out at consumers such as Curve Appeal 2. The idea behind the movie was to provide ten older scenes, slightly trimmed of their tease in most cases, to showcase popular ladies with curvy bodies. A quick look at the cast shows it had Sunny Lane, Kristina Rose, Lisa Ann, Jenny Hendrix, and a wealth of other ladies whose "curve appeal" is indisputable given their body of work, making my general distaste for compilations less irritating as I looked into this one. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Real Racks 4: Bree Olson, Mr. Pete: Bree Olsen makes up for the previous scene. I love those squeaky voices chicks like Katie Morgan. When Mr. Pete flips her over and slams his dick into her ass, you almost bust a nut right there. She's so kinky and so into the action that you buy her every movement. You believe in this girl's talents and you want to see her in more films. I could list all of the sexual positions, but that shit's getting kind of old. He slammed her in the ass and vagina. It's not like he did a handstand and fucked her while levitating rocks with his mind. But, that's a rant for another time. I just want everyone to know how much I love Bree Olsen and how I want to see her in bigger roles. (review by Guy Incognito)
Scene Two: Hand To Mouth #7: Kristina Rose, Mario Rossi: Kristina Rose, a very appealing little brunette wearing a red bikini outfit fringed in black, was up next as she stripped and showed off her splendid ass; her thong riding up her crack really nicely. Her dirty talk alone enhanced the scene too, the tease and solo work leading to her sucking off Mario Rossi (presumably since this was a POV scene and he wasn't credited in better reviewed scenes). Her active blowjob included a lot of hand to gland action, Kristina's dirty talk continuing any time her mouth was not otherwise occupied. There was some talking in the background but she was really a trooper when it came to draining his balls dry of population pudding. Whew!
Scene Three: Filthy: Lisa Ann, Mark Davis: Lisa Ann, a curvy brunette that is still making her triumphant comeback to the industry, remarked in the BTS feature how she hadn't done scene partner Mark Davis in over ten years on camera. I know many fans of porn like the flavor of the week, brand new performers but a gal like Lisa makes one stand up and pause (or at least stand erect and pause) due to the manner in which she proves time and again that desirability doesn't stop at 25 years of age. I may never get used to her implants but her skill with a meat pipe, positive attitude, and wanton nature all contribute to making her a show stopper (or perhaps a ball drainer considering this is porn) so I was psyched up to check out her latest scene. The tease was fine and her oral skills have never been better. That led to him returning the oral favor on her and then screwing her as he kissed her feet. The active screwing by both of them resulted in her face and chest being covered by semen but she always appeared to be in charge of the fun and the couple both appeared to get off.
Scene Four: Lick It Up #3: Tyler Faith, Scott Nails: Tyler Faith, the Massachusetts hotty that has wowed fans for years, was up last as she played on a couch with a cool looking glass dildo. She's another gal that knows the value of tease and experience, making the most of her chance to enhance her act with the superior technical direction of Mike Quasar before doing Scott Nails. She masturbated with the dildo and appeared to be on the brink of an orgasm when he walked in to assist her, rubbing her clitoris as he discarded the toy in favor of his hands. Her engine suitably revved up, she gave him one of her award winning blowjobs, displaying why she still has a lot of horny old (and young) men willing to shell out the dough for her work. When her mouth was not otherwise occupied, she used dirty talk to enhance the action, riding his dick like she was on fire. If anyone in the cast could prove a match for Scott it was Tyler and she certainly gave him a run for the money, competing in this virtual sexual Olympics with everyone winning in the process. This scene cemented the rating in my mind and almost boosted it up another level though the first two scenes held it down for me just the same. The scene ended when she spat out his semen onto the glass table, licking it up for effect.
Scene Five: Wetter The Better #2: Sunny Lane, Mark Wood: Sunny Lane, one of the most popular ladies at the Bunny Ranch these days, was up next as she slobbed the knob of Mark Wood in the built in swimming pool. She was wearing a pink & white outfit and there was no tease, she went right to blowing him, using some spit to lubricate his penis as she aggressively inhaled his pipe. This led to them vaginally screwing in various positions, Sunny only getting active when she was on top but always playing the frisky & playful hotty. The planes in the background were a chore but she received his genetic juice to her mouth as though she wanted it, smiling at what a great job she had done.
Scene Six: Tits Ahoy #6: Britney Stevens, James Deen: Britney Stevens, a busty brunette with a love of cock, was up next as the scene began while she was titty fucking James Deen. I suspect the tease was pretty hot because even though she acted over the top about the sex, loudly proclaiming her love of his big cock in her little pussy as he drilled the heck out of her. She did PTM and worked him with some chemistry as well as passion, the sweaty couple including anal antics in their thrusting adventure as well. The scene closed out when she jerked him off to her titty, the pair panting at their nasty little tryst ended.
Scene Seven: Cum On In #5: Ann Marie Rios, Pat Myne: Ann Marie Rios, a curvy little Latina, was up next as she teased in the living room while wearing her skimpy lingerie. The mechanics of her act are unimportant and she was decidedly mechanical in how she approached the matter but once she was paired off with Pat Myne, the noisy director made sure she delivered the goods. Her juicy pussy a sight for sore eyes even before the oral sex began. Her aggressive oral in POV helped show her skills and her need for seed pushed her to masturbate for him as though she was on fire. Pat then tongued her asshole and she was an active rider during the vaginal positions. During the anal, she slowed down and became passive but it was funny to see her take the role of the talker over our talkative director, the vaginal creampie scooped out by the gal to massage into her crotch.
Scene Eight: Gimme The Finger: Brianna Love, Alex Gonz: Brianna Love, the curvy babe seen on the front cover, was up next as she watched the camera while slobbing the knob of Alex Gonz. She worked him over using her hands and mouth, Alex then diddling her to a very juicy state with his hand stuffed up her snatch. That led to a moderately active vaginal ride by the hotty (in several positions on the couch), ending in a facial. It wasn't her best scene by a long shot but she acquitted herself really well, waving to the camera when it was all over.
Scene Nine: Finger Licking Good #3: Jenny Hendrix, Haley Paige, Jassie, Brea Bennett; The quartet of ladies up next were part of the yearly ritual known as the "Finger Licking Good" series, initially pairing off to kiss and make out but caressing one another and swapping partners as frequently as they swapped spit. This was a "no toy" scene where the primary act (after kissing at least) was for the ladies to go down on each other, Haley and Jassie coming across as the most comfortable in the situation.
Scene Ten: Spanish Harlem: Luscious Lopez, Maxx Black: Luscious Lopez, a Latina with large DSL's and a chunky ass to match, was up next in a scene with Maxx Black. They followed the formula on a strict basis, never straying too far from the established parameters, but her enthusiasm was a bit higher than I thought it would be given a few of her previous performances. Her strength lied not in the oral since giving head wasn't her best function but in the way she rode him in his lap. She also did the usual taste testing but I was much more interested in watching her ride this stallion, especially vaginally. If you like the curved beak type of nose, she'll come across as a younger version of Cher without the plastic (and of course the bigger, better, ass). Fans of dirty talk might also be glad to hear that she talked a lot as he planked her from behind. His load was another in need of less work (working too much means you have less semen to dispense) but she played with it and seemed to swallow at the end.
Summary: Curve Appeal 2 by 3rd Degree merited a rating of Recommended though I have misgivings about propping up a title that edits scenes. I would prefer the company simply include fewer scenes or go to a double disc set if need be rather than cut footage but for the most part, I'd be misleading you if I said there was not a lot of sweet fuck for the buck, strokability, replay value, and a fine cast of curvy ladies most aficionados would love to bust a nut in. In short, Curve Appeal 2 was almost everything a porn lover could expect from a compilation, even adding in a brand new scene to increase the value of the package, so check it out if you haven't seen a lot of these scenes.
