Audio/Video Quality: I Love Ashlynn 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame and 1.78:1 ratio letterboxed widescreen color as the scenes were shot by a variety of directors for a number of titles by Digital Sin in this MPEG-2 standard definition release that used 480i resolution (and a video bitrate tending to hover in the 3.9 Mbps range). The quality of the scenes varied more than a little bit as some were very appealing while others were in need of better attention to detail but I still felt that the overall compilation was handled fairly well and focused on the cutie in question quite nicely. The series has sold well enough to merit a sequel according to the company president and fans that have passed up on projects in the past seem to find them really solid in terms of value so the minor technical matters aren't as big a factor here. The fleshtones were accurate, the lighting usually good, and the composition of the shots typically good enough to enhance the look of the ladies. Oh yeah, the watermarks were back in case that matters to you (the company name on the lower right hand corner of the scenes). The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps at a 48 kHz sampling rate), with little separation and limited dynamic range but at least the music was not as lame as it could have been in most cases (exceptions noted below).
Body of Review: Ashlynn Brooke is sometimes referred to as porn's sweetheart for her girlish good looks yet smoldering sensuality as a contract performer at Digital Sin these days. Her roles in movies large and small usually depend on her sexual prowess mixed with her vulnerability, the curvy blond truly a sight to see. Well, her latest movie making it my way is called I Love Ashlynn 2, a lengthy compilation of ten older scenes. Unlike I Love Ashlynn 1 that came out last year, there were no scenes unique to this one, a disappointment for me to say the least, but the flip side is that newcomer fans may just find the batch of back scenes to be well worth their time. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Fresh Outta High School 5: Ashlynn Brooke, the beauty on the front DVD cover, was up first as she played a high school senior in the expansive living room with Greg introducing her to predator Kurt Lockwood. Kurt and Ashlynn stayed when he left and they reacquainted themselves with her going along with his suggestion of some heated action. If you like a guy twice the age of the gal getting some from her, you will really like this scene since she was looking exceptionally attractive here, using her coy innocence better than most as she coaxed his cock into her throat. The aggressive hummer led to Kurt going down on her, followed by a moderately active ride where the gal impaled her pussy soundly on his average penis. Her throaty groans of pleasure aside, she was thankfully in one of her more active modes this time as the men bumped uglies. For his part, Kurt kept quiet and the scene went well as he wasn't too large to prevent her from working his rod too much so I was appreciative of that fact. The vaginal ride included some taste testing and a load of population pudding to her mouth, the camera fading away before she could swallow or otherwise dispose of it.
Scene Two: Ashlynn and Friends 4: Ashlynn Brooke, the hotty featured on the front cover and in each scene, was up again as she teased on a staircase with her smoking hot body, her polka dot panties and skimpy pink top barely holding in her assets. She proceeded towards the living room "platform" (not truly a bed or couch) to masturbate during the obnoxious music, Ian joining her in her dark suit. He felt her breast and suckled on it, moving down to her snatch where he spent precious little time eating her out before she gave him a far better blowjob, partially in POV fashion. That translated into a series of vaginal penetrations with intermittent kissing and taste testing, Ashlynn very passive in how she rode him until his small load of genetic juice landed on her mouth.
Scene Three: Big Pole Little Hole: Ashlynn knows how to pose. She's pretty and has that model charm. It's just that she's awkward in the sexual positioning required for the role. It's a shame, because she's got such a face on her. A lot of porn chicks are losing that important quality. Plus, she looks incredibly young. That's not to say that I'm one of those guys who can't pop unless a chick looks like she was born in 1990. But, it helps things along. When the money shot arrives, it's rather predictable and doesn't save the scene. (review by Guy Incognito)
Scene Four: Double Play 5: The main attraction is up next with Lindsey Meadows and Ashlynn Brook going at it. The girls start off wearing fishnet tops and they look simply stunning as they start playing with each other. The scene gets even better when they crawl over to the guy waiting patiently on a sofa and start giving him a blow job sandwich. Lindsey hops on board the cock first and starts riding it nice and steady while playing with Ashlynn's pussy. As the scene progresses the girls take turns getting fucked while licking or fingering the other's pussy. Everyone involved really got into the sex which gave it a genuine feel that many threesome scenes lack. Lindsey and Ashlynn were all over each other and right up until the end with a facial and cum swap the girls never remove their hands. (review by Harry Johnson)
Scene Five: Teen Dreams 15: The first girl up is named Ashlynn Brooke (the girl on the cover), and she is easily the hottest girl on the entire disc. As soon as the camera rolls Ashlynn is already in the process of giving her man Mr. Pete some sloppy wet oral. She showed all the energy and enthusiasm you could hope for. Ashlynn then spreads her legs and lets him give her pussy a quick licking. With the foreplay over Ashlynn bends over and gets nailed from behind. They go on to fuck in a variety of other positions. She never looked to be in any discomfort as she easily handled him. The scene ends with Ashlynn hungrily licking up his load of nut juice. (review by Bobby McGee)
Scene Six: Ashlynn Goes To College 4: Ashlynn Brooke, next up in the first scene of the second disc as a stalked coed wearing a black dress, sat patiently listening to the weak guitar playing of moper Anthony Rosano on a couch. She was going off and he was a love sick puppy, the gal taking matters into her own hands to get up and kiss him, straddling his lap as she removed her top to give him something to play with. He loved her tits as much as I do and felt up her ass as well, a short titty fuck leading to both partners giving the other some head. There was then a series of vaginal positions and fake moans, the lack of personal chemistry holding it back more than her passive riding skills. She has really come a long way since this one was shot, though in her favor it should be noted that she was active during one of the cowgirl variations. It ended when he rubbed out a nut of population pudding on her feet.
Scene Seven: Addicted 5: The first scene in Addicted 5 features John Strong and Ashlynn Brooke. It all begins with a narrative about the nature of addiction, which helps set the mood for the release nicely. This scene in particular gets started with Ashlynn, looking great as always, pulling off a nice little tease for the camera. She's dressed in a black dress with loads of diamonds, which is a series staple I suppose, but soon enough the dress starts to shed itself from her skin. The camera captures her slowly squeezing her tits and sucking her fingers and eventually after she plays with her pussy for a bit John comes into the scene and the action gets underway. Their sex gets going with some standard oral foreplay, and sadly the rest of the scene feels equally generic. John and Ashlynn get into some nice positions on the sofa and the scene does push the action into high gear a couple of times, but otherwise the scene felt a little too dry or forced. Don't get me wrong, Ashlynn looks amazing here and puts on a good show, but she never really connects with John in this scene and their sex looks awkward at times. (review by Harry Johnson)
Scene Eight: All About Ashlynn 1: Ashlynn Brooke, all dolled up in super sexy pink & black lingerie (garter, stockings, camisole and panties that truly enhanced her look), then whispered to the camera that she was excited and wanting some relief. She masturbated in the bathroom after applying some makeup and displaying her flesh, an abrupt edit showing her on the couch in the living room where suit-attired Tommy Gunn came up to her to give her oral pleasure. She looked more into the sex this time, displaying some needed chemistry as he fingered and ate her pussy. She reciprocated with an aggressively hummer showing a need for seed, her largely passive ride again weakening it for me despite how incredibly fine she looked here. She did put some motion into the ride though as it proceeded, her dirty talk scant but welcome as she kissed and enjoyed his ministrations. The scene ended when he gave her a vaginal creampie, a believable one at that.
Scene Nine: Ashlynn's Reality Check: In the car again, Ashlynn decides she's in the mood for a businessman in a suit, "cuz they're so like uptight." (Hello, Ashlynn, who do you think spreads all those porn links and dirty jokes on the Internet, sanitation workers?) First guy in a tie she passes (Alan Stafford) hops right in and consents to on-camera fellatio. At the house, he gets out of that suit and reveals a ripped bod you don't get from 9-to-5-ing it in Pasadena. (review by Addison DeLick)
Scene Ten: Ashlynn's Reality Check: Ashlynn is at her laptop chatting with some fool and decides a face-to-face (or crotch-to-crotch) is in order. In a few moments the Eminem wanna-be (John Espizedo) shows up at her door. "What's with the camera?" the dolt asks in what is at least an attempt to pass off this whole enterprise as unfake. The undeniable Ashlynn soon has his powder-blue sweatpants down. (review by Addison DeLick)
Summary: I Love Ashlynn 2 by Digital Sin raised my hopes that there would at least one new scene of the cosmic cutie on hand (like the first volume) but that was not the case so completists like myself will be less interested this time unless they missed out of multiple scenes. As such, I rated it as a Rent It though again, there is enough information here to allow you to figure out for yourselves whether it makes sense to pick up a copy. In short, fans of Ashlynn Brook will want to weigh the benefits of buying I Love Ashlynn 2 if they have most of these scenes but frankly, she looked great in each of them so prepare to unleash some genetic juice of your own if you give this one a chance.
