Cast: Joanna Angel, James Deen, Draven, Brian Street Team, Andy San Dimas, Kris Slater, Coco Velvett, Skin Non sex roles by Destrodamus and Kelly Linds Arm
Length: 125:04 minutes
Date of Production: 2009
Extras: There were some trailers and the advertised photogallery but the best extra was the lengthy, 40:40 minute long, hardcore laced Behind the Scenes feature starring the cast and crew. Joanna was again shown in charge of matters and unlike many "business is business" looks behind the curtain, they all seemed to be having a great time so it was well worth watching.

Audio/Video Quality: No Panties Allowed was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director James Deen for Burning Angel, the guy joining the ranks of performers-turned-directors for a third time. The movie was encoded with the usual MPEG-2 and had a corresponding resolution of 480i, the video bitrate hovering around the 4.3Mbps mark whenever I spot checked it. There was some grain, video noise, and other visual issues that generally weren't enough to bug me too much, James even editing the production albeit showing a lot of rough edges in his final product. The lighting varied significantly and the camera shots relied too heavily on the single camera I believe was used for most (if not all) scenes, but the overall composition favored the ladies and their extensive tattoos, the "alt" sensibilities clearly emphasized once more. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo English using a 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate. The vocals were very basic but the music was nicely done, the credits listing Theo and the Skyscrapers for the colorful music.

Body of Review: Joanna Angel is not your traditional porn beauty, her copious amounts of ink and edgy temperament displaying the kind of attitude she cultivates for her releases at Burning Angel. In recent times, she has expanded her roster of directors to include her personal boy toy James Deen as well, the younger mindset supposedly knowing what works for the youth of today. As such, I picked up a copy of No Panties Allowed to review as much to check in and see what they had going on as for the specific inked up ladies, all but Joanna fairly new to the game as it were in scenes that depicted the gals wearing clothes but no panties, the easy access attitude shining through for fans to enjoy. For those of you into "firsts", there was a scene of Skin doing her first boy/girl but again, the alt credibility seemed well served here for those that care. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Joanna Angel, the gal with multi-colored hair featured on the front cover, was up first as she showed her no panties look on a balcony. The light breeze lifted the skirt a bit to initially show her pussy but she hiked it up for a better view, bending over to provide a glimpse of the fullness of her ass, James Deen eventually coming up behind her to diddle her before she enthusiastically slobbed his knob while looking up into his eyes. That was when the vaginal sex began, the chemistry between them as evident as ever and the couple moving inside before the taste testing started, Joanna aggressively licking her own juices off his pecker. James reciprocated after that, eating her out and rimming Joanna before pounding into her admittedly worn asshole, the lady looking back at the camera to express her appreciation of the fullness she felt. She was more passive during the anal initially but soon got into a groove with him, pushing back to enhance the experience, the eventual load of genetic juice landing on her crotch and torso when James rubbed it out all over her.

Scene Two: Draven, a lean brunette on the prowl for cock, was up next on a ladder as she got Brian Street Team interested in her, there being no light bulb to change. He lifted up her dress to rim her and she spread her cheeks wide apart to grant him greater access, the semi-erect lad trying to penetrate her pussy before she inhaled him orally. He appeared to be having wood issues though and she took more care in getting him excited, her series of active vaginal positions culminating in her blowing him to completion with the guy jerking out his meager offering of population pudding to her chest in the living room.
Scene Three: Andy San Dimas, the sexy Xcritic blogger, was up next in the laundry room, teasing the camera as she bent over a bunch during the opening portion of the scene. Her ass was only partially in view but her slacker attire seemed fitting for the project, the clumsy editing not hurting her appeal all that much before she had some company. Destro left and Kris Slater stayed, Andy dropping down to her knees to blow him in a sloppy fashion though he gave her a slight taste too. That was when he bent her over and let his carnal instincts take over, Andy pumping back to gain the most benefit from his heated pounding. There was some intermittent oral along the way and he ended it by jerking off to her face, Andy licking him clean before the comedic ending.
Scene Four: Coco Velvett, one of the older cast members but hardly looking her age, was up next playing videogames while Brian Street Team watched her. She was on the couch and he was tending to some lame duties with stickers, blowing her off amusingly until she decided to masturbate her way into his pants. That was when she found out playing hard to get made him want her more, his face stuffed between her ass cheeks in no time at all, the couple spending the majority of the scene after that, changing positions as they bumped uglies vaginally. They started to get rough with each other using hair pulling and choking but quickly abated that degree of action to focus more on the basics. She overacted by a whole lot and went oral on him towards the end, savagely jerking him off as she blew him until he launched his wad of spew into her face.
Scene Five: Skin, a lean gal with bright pink hair, was up last in what was billed as her first b/g scene, her ample amount of ink making her fit right in as she discussed her Scottish heritage during an interview. This departure from the formula made me think it was made for another project but James Deen did save her for himself and the bland living room setting did not impact at all on the quality of the action. James was scruffy and gave the appearance he hadn't bathed in days, suiting Skin just fine as the couple kissed and pawed each other. The couple were all over one another and she soon released his cock from his pants to jerk off, the guy unable to wait before dabbling in vaginal penetration. The oral was minimal after that and she was the least active rider of the entire cast but there did seem to be a modicum of chemistry between them; not as much as some of the established names in the cast but present all the same. As expected, her jerked off to her face to close it out, a small load as she knelt before him.
Summary: No Panties Allowed by director James Deen for Burning Angel was full of tattooed ladies having sex with a few of the younger mopes in porn, providing a degree of alt sensibility but only a small one for those keeping track. There was some chemistry between most of the pairings but frankly, the technical stuff was borderline amateur and not the best use of the scenarios was made so I ended up rating this one as a Rent It unless you are really into the gals listed above. In short, I was less than enthusiastic about the way the running time was listed on the back cover (including the BTS) and more could have been done with the couples to seem like they were truly into it instead of just less offensive because the guys weren't the same old men used so often these days but if you're a fan of "alt-porn", the casting of No Panties Allowed should help make it suit your needs better than most so check it out.
