Cast: Tori Black, Anthony Rosano, Charlotte Vale, Steve Holmes, Emma Heart, Sasha Knox, James Deen, MacKenzee Pierce, Mick Blue, Ava Rose, Manuel Ferrara
Length: 180:52 minutes
Date of Production: 10/24/2009
Extras: The only decent extra this time was the 7:40 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the ladies had a chance to discuss the project and show some flesh. Otherwise, there were five trailers, a photogallery, and a cumshot recap but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: Big Wet Asses 16 was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as shot by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel using the standard definition AVC codec with 1080p resolution. The lighting was good as expected and helped minimize the grain & video noise. The composition of the shots tended to favor the ladies, rarely chopping off their heads in a frame or missing out on significant portions of the action. The editing was a bit better this time though a few of the edits by Robert Laplanc were too abrupt or noticeable but part of that might be due to what kind of footage was presented. I saw no compression artifacts although the bitrate varied substantially, often seeming to be in the 17.5 Mbps range. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the 256 Kbps bitrate (and 48 kHz sampling rate), the separation was nonexistent and the dynamic range limited but at least the vocals could be heard most of the time (as could some background noise). The music from Mybeatshop and the company archives were solid enough for the scenes themselves but the action just did not always fit as nicely as possible so the aural work could have been polished up a little more.

Body of Review: William H. Nutsack and his work at Elegant Angel need no introduction in the porn circles I travel due to the exceptionally high quality of his works over the last several years. His biggest and best series for many folks, a flagship title in some ways, has been his "Big Wet Asses" offering released at least once a year to a huge audience, the heated debates over what performers should partake of the BWA experience often requiring moderation using a heavy hand. Well, the latest volume of the series, Big Wet Asses 16, is out and the big selling point here is that popular Tori Black finally gave up the ass, her various coworkers including Mackenzee Pierce, Emma Heart, Ava Rose, Sasha Knox, and Charlotte Vale. As a huge fan of the series for years, I admit I had my doubts this time since I couldn't care less about a "first anal" and while all of the ladies had ample samples (except perhaps Tori whose ass is pleasing if not big), this seemed almost like the runner up version of the series put out for contractual reasons rather than what I have come to think of as one of the company's premiere efforts. The company website described the show like this: "Superstar Tori Black stars in Big Wet Asses 16, the return of the award winning all anal series. The movie is directed by William H. and shot in 1080p HD. It features six intense and passionate hardcore sex scenes, with extended tease sequences for each girl. This is the first Big Wet Asses release that features a brand new look and location. Also starring Ava Rose, Sasha Knox, Charlotte Vale, MacKenzee Pierce, and Emma Heart." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Tori Black, the AVN pick for performer of the year and cutie featured on the front cover, was up first in what was billed as her first anal scene. In keeping with the series dynamic, she paraded around in her skimpy black attire while shaking all the appropriate body parts, the edited montage highlighting her really well. While I've never been her biggest fan, she upgraded her performances substantially in 2009 to make her a sensible choice for many, this one coming out after the awards deadline but before voting so I'm willing to bet she was given credit for it all the same (ie: this performance probably pushed her ahead of the next candidate). The tease included two parts, one in the infamous white room and the other outside on the perfect day by the pool, Tori looking great even if her ass hardly qualifies as "big" in my book, the large quantities of oil coating her well enough before she was stuck working with moper Anthony Rosano in the living room. They kissed and she tossed him to the white couch, jumping on his bone as she blew him into oblivion. There was no chemistry or connection between them but the energy levels were consistently high, Tori teasing him as his spotted dick rubbed along her ass crack once her hummer was over. He made no real attempt to orally satisfy her and she impaled herself on his pecker, aggressively riding it in what amounted to a very solid performance. Both gave a few licks between positions after that, Tori taking him in the ass passively but with a relatively reserved amount of fake porn screaming compared to some of her established peers. Several positions later, he jerked off to her ass cheeks though he had some wood problems along the way, the load of genetic juice among the smallest I have seen in a very long time.
Scene Two: Charlotte Vale, a cute brunette with a chunky bottom half, was up next as she teased in her silver bikini, the pale-skinned lady in need of some muscle tone but possessing those infamous bedroom eyes of hers that I adore so much. Her montage was also broken into two parts and ended with an abrupt edit landing into the living room where Steve Holmes was fingering her on the couch before choking her. Their playful tryst continued with her removing his clothes like he was hiding money, the gal savoring his dick orally while looking at him and the camera in equal amounts. She teased him by kissing the length of his leg too but spent the bulk of her time on his rod, deep throating him well enough that he stopped her to go down on her; the two mixing it up until they actively screwed vaginally, some intermittent taste testing by both of them driving them further. That was when Steve, having fingered her ass during his oral efforts, went diving into her passive ass, spanking her to distract her from the pain, a few positions later returning to the vaginal plowing in order to build up a nut to launch on her face.
Scene Three: Emma Heart, a shapely gal with a wonderful smile, was up next in black and neon pink bikini underwear, having the time of her life as she teased (though almost all of it was inside) to the beat of the music while oil was poured over her frame. That ended when she was on the couch with moper Anthony Rosano, the guy orally servicing her bent over body (emphasis on eating her ass and fingering it) before she gleefully slobbed his knob in record time. That led to her bouncing on his cock vaginally, some minor taste testing leading to more oil and boning, the anal eventually slowing her down more than a little bit. She did not seem willing to do ATM and he popped a nut of population pudding on her ass, this time showering her with a large load even though they had minimal chemistry.
Scene Four: Sasha Knox, a thick blond with pretty eyes and a large ass, was up next wearing a black bikini as she followed the formula, her all natural curves lacking finesse but making up for it in terms of looks. She looked far better outside but there just wasn't a lot of footage shot there, the gal ending up on the couch with James Deen, the guy pulling down her bottom immediately to gain access to her ass orally. He then choked her as he pounded away vaginally, his cock looking especially small compared to her wealth of a booty, the blowjob she gave him showing her skills just fine. She became more active once she was on top of him though, bouncing heatedly until the cock slipped into her ass (at which time she slowed down to a snail's pace). Sasha got better using small strokes (only allowing an inch or so to penetrate) but it didn't take long for him to drop a wad of spew on her face after that, the gal looking up at him as though she wanted to shove something up his ass.
Scene Five: MacKenzee Pierce, a frisky brunette with a well toned body, was up next in a tease montage making great use of her skimpy neon pink bikini outfit, the gal pouring on the seductive charm rather well as she showcased why I was watching her. The oiling session was not as extensive as some of the others but she made the most of it, looking even better on the overcast day outside. As with most of the scenes, her partner was right there on the couch with her after the abrupt edit, this time studly Mick Blue there to orally service her needs. She looked at the camera as much as him though and that was distracting, Nick getting a short but sweet hummer from her before they screwed vaginally. The look on her face made it seem as though she was getting Lex inside of her but the addition of oil did not change her expression, the passive romp becoming more active as she got used to his pecker pounding deep inside of her pussy. It amused me that she actually did better with the anal sex too, pushing back to meet Mick's thrusts in a hardy manner on that black couch until he unleashed his seed on her ass cheeks, a minimal load from him too (are these guys working that hard during a recession?).
Scene Six: Ava Rose, a popular gal for a long time, was up last wearing a sexy black bikini over her increasingly large body, the short montage tease leading to her on the couch with Manuel Ferrara. They kissed at length as he diddled her pussy, his tongue moving down her frame to get her off due to his oral efforts. After he cleaned her front and back, she slobbed his knob aggressively, throating him and catering to his needs before the inevitable vaginal ride. She gyrated her hips a lot and seamlessly moved into the anal but the scene seemed truncated in terms of overall length here, Manuel busting a nut all over her face. It was a basic scene between them (and I've seen a few such scenes) that showed some chemistry, energy, and enthusiasm that were often missing in the other scenes but they appeared to be rushing it too much for my tastes.
Summary: Big Wet Asses 16 (Blu-ray) by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was strokable and had enough replay value to merit a rating of Recommended but it fell short of previous series efforts due in large part to casting on both sides of the gender coin. Some of the ladies lacked the ample sample advertised while others appeared less than enthusiastic about who they were stuck with working, the men a hit or miss crowd too. In short then, Big Wet Asses 16 still had gals teasing while getting oiled up, still had some sexy action worth checking out, and still had all the usual elements, just not as polished up as better volumes in the series. This high definition version of the show was clearly an upgrade in visual elements but the series has definitely seen better casting and action, the show coming across as though it was shot with Blu-ray in mind more than the standard definition version that most of you will see. Give this one a look but don't forget the wealth of superior scenes shot previously for the series, the rest of them deserving of visual enhancement as well.
