Length: 167:21 minutes
Date of Production: 2009
Extras: The best extra was the 15:28 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that amounted to little more than a series of photogallery shoots and short interviews. There was a photogallery, cumshot recap, and a slipcover as well.

Audio/Video Quality: No Swallowing Allowed #16 was presented in an anamorphic widescreen color with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio as shot by director Ray Bones for Diabolic as offered in 480p resolution using the MPEG-2 codec of standard definition. The scenes all included decent lighting, helping eliminate most visual flaws with the production, though a few compression artifacts crept by when I checked it out on my big screen television. There was some grain and the compression artifacts were minimal but the video bitrate was higher than I expected with much of the footage hovering around the 6.1 Mbps area, the editing a bit on the unpolished side but otherwise looking pretty good. The lighting varied substantially though and for what it's worth, the camera was far too often handled with a strong leaning towards close ups. None of the scenes looked bad but some of them did look better than others so I hope to compare more of Ray's works to see how he fares in more difficult to shoot titles but I can't fault him much for what I saw here. The audio was presented in a 1.0 monaural at 192 Kbps and with a 48 kHz sampling rate without any separation or elevated dynamic range; covering the basics only (though the company is certainly not alone in that department if follow tech-specs).

Body of Review: Ray Bones and Diabolic have been offering a variety of gonzo movies in recent years, the general rule of thumb being to capture the essence of the scene without a lot of frills, succeeding as often as not in providing strokable porn with a decent amount of energy, replay value, and strokability. The latest pairing of this director and company is with No Swallowing Allowed #16, the movie dedicated to ladies that enjoy getting a wad of genetic juice launched on their face. This time, the cast included hotties like Kristina Rose, Avy Scott, and Kagney Linn Karter so I felt pretty secure that there would be some quality footage happening as the usual mopers were sent in to work their magic with the ladies. The main selling point this time, at least as advertised, was the fact that there would be "100% face blasts!" so I kept my scorecard handy to ensure this promise was lived up to, with some passionate pounding of pussies included as well. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Kagney Linn Karter
Scene One: Asa Akira, an attractive Asian in a blue bikini, was up first as she showed off her goodies and masturbated, Pat Myne coaxing her to go further until he joined her. The minimal tease was not bad at all, the technical aspects a step above Ray's usual work from what I observed, her ass in the air indicative of the kind of thing I like seeing. She replaced the glass dildo with his pecker in her mouth, her oral skills well in evidence too, even the phone ringing in the background (duh!) not distracting her. Her oral onslaught led to Pat eating her a bit, moving to a number of vaginal penetration positions where she tried to be active even when he held her down. By the time they were finished, they were coated in sweat and acting as if they were having a good time, Asa sucking out his wad of genetic juice but not swallowing any of it before the camera faded out.

Scene Two: Avy Scott, a long time favorite of mine with a curvy body and winning personality, was up next in a black & white striped bikini, teasing and masturbating in a sultry manner until she hooked up with studly Mick Blue in the living room setting. The lighting was not as solid this time and that resulted in the picture resolution dropping off a bit but Avy had my full attention as she showed why she is such a favorite. Her charisma enhanced the scene beyond the good looks and enthusiasm of Asa, her fingers probing both her pussy and ass until she was slobbing the knob of Mick. The passion displayed was really appreciated and he seemed quite into her abilities, to the point where he chowed down on her and vaginally fucked her with a sense of abandon. The penetrative sex took back seat to all the oral they did throughout the scene though, his wealth of population pudding gracing her tongue not swallowed (even as the plane overhead flew by them...great audio, huh?), instead rubbed into her tits and chest.
Scene Three: Kagney Linn Karter, the beauty featured on the front cover, was up next wearing her cover outfit and a matching bra, brandishing a silver vibrator as she followed the formula presented to her. I have held that she is definitely a hotty to keep an eye out on for the way she looks, her performance abilities increasing with experience though the lighting was again a bit "off", this time the white room too white for the settings on the camera to handle in optimal fashion. The technical issues aside, Kagney seemed charming as she fussed at Pat Myne and went back to diddling herself, her need for seed displayed as she spent a moment sucking him off, Pat reciprocating before pounding her pussy to pieces. Her moaning was not exactly convincing but she sure looked good taking all he had to offer, her passive riding weakening the scene for me overall but her mouth pop showing she wanted to swallow despite being warned ahead of time.
Scene Four: Madelyn Marie, a curvy gal with long brown hair and some sexy light purple underwear to enhance her figure, was up next on a couch, the gal mugging as she teased the camera during the opening portion of the scene. It was a short, playful bout of teasing too, the gal at least sort of lighting up when Mark Wood walked into view with an erection for her to continue with. The choppy editing aside, she took to blowing him with polished precision, lacking any chemistry but at least paying homage to the amounts of energy expected of her. He skipped going down on her other than an occasional lick, the gal actively riding his cock instead as though scratching an itch. She was best on top of his lap, rocking and intermittently sucking him off, the gal needing to coax out his wad verbally since he took forever to bust a nut on her face.
Scene Five: Kristina Rose, one of the most popular young ladies in porn at this writing, was up last and what a fine selection she was to finish things up. The short brunette employed a wealth of dirty talk to bring it home, elevating the marginal rating the production was in line to get by a full grade thanks to the seductive manner in which she enticed the camera during her tease. The solo footage was also very appealing, her glass dildo probing all the right places, particularly her ass as she stretched herself for the (hopefully) anal action to come later when she encountered Mr. Pete. She inhaled his pecker with a flair reserved only for the most wanton sluts in the jizz biz, Pete throat fucking her in return. She played it up to the camera a bit more than I cared for but straddling him in the 69 position, the single camera focused on her rather than him, a second camera missing out on her sweet ass getting tongued by the guy. When the riding started, she bounced on him like she was on fire, the vaginal penetration displaying how much she liked a good hard cock, but the anal proving to elicit more of a believable response from her in terms of getting off. She did some taste testing and his load flew all over the couch and her face, the ending humorous and sexy at the same time. Whew!
Summary: No Swallowing Allowed #16 by director Ray Bones for Diabolic definitely had some ups and downs, thankfully starting and ending on strong notes. Kristina Rose and Avy Scott were the two highlight performances here, Asa Akira also in the running to make the show well worth a rating of Recommended. The strokability, replay value, and amounts of fuck for the buck merited such a rating overall, the minimal extras and wavering technical values needing an upgrade in several instances for consideration of even better grades. In short, No Swallowing Allowed #16 suffered no shortage of name recognition value and it is safe to say that Ray is improving his game over time, the pairings needing more spark or chemistry to really shine yet I could not fault the choices made in terms of the ladies present.
