Cast: Micah Moore, Juelz Ventura, Erik Everhard, Julia Ann, Toni Ribas, Kristina Rose, Mark Ashley, Nikki Benz, Bobbi Starr, Steve Holmes, Mark Wood, Mr. Pete, John Strong, Andy San Dimas, Manuel Ferrara
Extras: As expected, the discs had their own unique extras, the first one with a lengthy 67:09 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by the talented Tony Flush; the men interviewing the ladies as they got ready for their scenes but also catching them in various states of undress or getting ready (more sex included too). A lot of the footage was grainy and substandard but it was interesting to watch all the same. There were three trailers, a popshot recap, a photogallery, websites, and a cast list too. The second disc had similar extras, including another long BTS lasting 64:34 minutes, all the other extras, as well as three more trailers.

Audio/Video Quality: Pretty As They Cum #2 was presented in an appealingly clear 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video as presented in the MPEG-2 format so common to standard definition titles (with 480i resolution). The lighting was consistently solid, generally limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house, no scenes going far outside the box in terms of centering on dark rooms this time. The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies though as they diddled themselves or took on various mopes using their feminine charms; this volume of the series again showing the ladies all glammed up compared to the usual generic porn I see them in so often. There were no compression artifacts (the bitrate hovering in the 3.3 Mbps range most of the time I paid any attention to it) with the fleshtones almost always what I expected them to be, making this one the best titles by Chris released to date in some ways. As expected from previous volumes of the series, there was an awful lot of oil splashed around here, all of it looking great on the curvy ladies. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure. There were no music laden tease sequences this time though, the assets of the ladies having to (thankfully) speak for themselves.

Body of Review: Chris Streams has become something of a favorite director with his work distributed by Jules Jordan Video, the man wise enough to diversify his porn portfolio as it were. While her releases some of the best oil shows, MILF extravaganzas, and other niches fans appreciate, he also caters to the "pretty porn" crowd by shooting a series now up with Pretty As They Cum #2: Special Edition, the sequel to Pretty As They Cum #1. The concept this time is to apply a variety of glamour photography techniques with hot ladies that give their all sexually for him, the end result being what amounts to a superior style of smut for those that desire airbrushed looking ladies offering tons of tease. For me, the prospect of seeing ladies such as Kristina Rose, Bobbi Starr. Andy San Dimas, Julia Ann, and Micah Moore shot this was elevated my expectation levels more than a bit. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Micah Moore and Juelz Ventura, the two attractive brunettes seen on the upper left hand corner of the front cover, were up first as they posed and primped for the camera, Micah's ass looking better than ever. While I prefer porn to flow at regular speed and not slow motion, I give Chris credit for making this work better than most of his peers have been able to do, the overly made up gals not as appealing when the obligatory close-ups were emphasized. The teasing outside led the ladies into the house where studly Erik Everhard was waiting for them on the couch, the man orally pleasing them both front and back before they slobbed his knob aggressively. The ladies assisted each other orally during the mostly active vaginal riding but there was a lack of chemistry here hampering the overall effort. The lengthy scene finished up when he launched his nut of genetic juice to Micah's face, coating her eye and nose more than anything else.
Andy San Dimas
Scene Two: Julia Ann, the respected MILF seen on the center of the front cover, was up next in men's clothing to provide a stage show type of act for the camera as she stripped. Julia has long been a favorite on the strip club circuit and her skillful display of class worked during the tease more than anything else, fans of smoking certain to appreciate the way she handled her cigarette as much as the cock she smoked owned by Toni Ribas. It was a seductive hummer and Julia made an effort to linger on the oral, soon impaling herself vaginally on his turgid pecker vaginally in numerous positions (with taste testing by the way) until she gave up that sweet ass of hers. The scene ended with a great blowjob that milked his balls dry of population pudding, Julia savoring the entire experience from the look on her face.
Scene Three: Kristina Rose, the increasingly popular hotty featured on the lower center of the front cover, was up last on the first disc as she pranced about in sexy black lingerie at night by the pool with the fountain turned on, smoking a cancer stick as she shook her money maker. She had a jeweled anal plug inside of her ass so I knew she'd be giving up that precious ass of hers, the floor show eventually interrupted by Mark Ashley to begin the nasty stuff. There was a bunch of oral intermittently shown throughout the scene and she was perhaps the most active rider of the show, her pussy and ass engulfing his cock nearly as well as her mouth did. The level of chemistry was better than the first two scenes too (though not like she offers up with Manuel Ferrara), the couple moving inside the living room by the contemporary fireplace to do more than her hummer. I especially liked how she pushed back in the doggy position to drive him deep inside her ass, the facial on the smaller side but the overall scene a winner.
Scene Four: Nikki Benz, the blond in the animal print outfit seen featured on the left side of the cover, was up next as the first scene on the second disc. Herself a seasoned professional on the stripper circuit, Nikki applied her skills on a small stage complete with metal pole, masturbating and otherwise playfully displaying her goods with the big hair and extra makeup the series tends to provide. The emphasis on her implants was noted and it did not take long before Erik Everhard was embracing her, eating her out until it was time for her to share some oral goodness on his pecker. She provided an over the top amount of moaning too, seemingly preferring his cock inside her snatch given her facial expressions, Erik complying with her needs to pound away at her very hard. Nikki was not an especially active vaginal rider but she tried to make up for it with a multitude of taste testing and some anal penetration towards the end of the scene. The exceptionally soft focus enhanced her looks too but Erik finished up with her by rubbing out a mouthful of spew for her to enjoy.
Scene Five: Bobbi Starr, the cutie spotted on the right side of the front cover, was up next as the gal followed the formula and ended up with Steve Holmes, Mark Wood, Mr. Pete, and John Strong. I've seen her many dozens of times but she had a glow to her here with her new haircut, her shapely ass looking picture perfect in the bathtub. I like bubble bath shoots for ladies and she seemed to look especially good here, the suds lingering on her frame as the camera panned along her lines. Thankfully, she did not smoke (a nasty habit) and instead shaved her pubic mound for the fetish crowd, soon dressed up in the living room to be met by the guys. She started sucking cocks one after the other and was being penetrated in no time, her pussy taking a beating after the blowbang finished up. She tossed salad and did DP's with ease, becoming the only gal in the movie to be made airtight (a cock in all three holes at once). Steve eventually ate her out and was rewarded with some extra anal for his efforts, Bobbi appreciating the way the men treated her needs so well. The ending this time included Bobbi swallowing their respective loads with ease, showing her devotion and need for seed.
Scene Six: Andy San Dimas, the cute young lady barely seen on the upper right hand corner, was up last as she paraded around in black & white lingerie outside at night, making the city streets a better place as she showed off her ample assets. The bridge looked less lonely with her teasing on it, the scene reverting back to the brick-walled loft where studly Manuel Ferrara was half dressed and waiting for her. They engaged in some tease between each other and kissed, caressing one another before the oral and vaginal plowing started up. She was a mostly passive rider at first but quickly started to impale herself on his dick, driving it deep inside herself as the two continued. She ate his ass too, the lady turned on well past what she was used to handling from what I could see. The taste testing led to a final hummer, Manuel unleashing his wad of semen onto her waiting face and into her mouth, her eye contact with him establishing their personal connection.
Summary: Pretty As They Cum #2 by director Chris Streams for Jules Jordan Video seemed less polished than the first volume in the series and I'll admit the casting of ladies was a mixed deal for me but it easily earned a rating of Recommended for the amount of quality fuck for the buck and strokability factor alone. In short, while I prefer this type of porn a little at a time, Pretty As They Cum #2: Special Edition, like Pretty As They Cum #1 before it, I cannot deny that Chris offered up another unique bout of erotic boning that some of you may actually prefer to the generic gonzo more frequently offered up.
