Extras: The best extra was clearly the 51:07 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, Jimmy capturing the action as they cast got ready to rumble. There was some photogallery material too, some anecdotal comments and interviews fleshing out the amusing showcase effort. The rest of the extras were standard package material including a cast list, a photogallery, six trailers, and a pop shot recap.
Audio/Video Quality: The Letter A Is For Asshole was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen the scenes were originally shot in by director Erik Everhard for Jules Jordan Video using the MPEG-2 codec (sporting 480 resolution). The quality of the visuals varied a bit here but Everhard focused less on the technical matters instead of maintaining the usual sexual energy and chemistry. The lighting was decent and that eliminated most of the problems associated with gonzo productions, Erik's works virtually always a few notches above the competition from what I've seen over the years. The editing by Brad Stark could have used some polishing up but the basics were covered handily, the end result pretty close to what I expected out of the show. The bitrate was all over the charts here with much of the footage coming in around the 5.4 Mbps range but there were not a lot of compression artifacts present that I could see (there was some inherent grain at times though). The audio was offered up in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate but there was no separation noticed that I could figure out, and the dynamic range was pretty limited too; the scenes coming from quickly shot gonzo; the guerilla shooting style favored by pornographers everywhere.

Body of Review: Erik Everhard is a director distributed by Jules Jordan Video, the man also working in front of the camera to provide some of the hardest actual fucking you will see recorded in the industry. If you are one of those that hates seeing a fourth tier mope trying to use a semi-erect boner on a hotty all juiced up and ready to go, you will appreciate that not all meat puppets are alike; Erik a virtual Olympic performer by comparison. His latest release is the dual disc The Letter A Is For Asshole, the title not referring to yours truly but the fact that all of the ladies reportedly engage in anal sex with the director or guys with similar reputations. My personal tastes regarding anal is that I'm not a huge fan, only really enjoying such scenes when the ladies are going full bore and prove to be into the action but I know a lot of others out there gauge a performance by how many sex acts and what type a woman does so I can at least understand the appeal of the once taboo sex act, especially given anal queens like Kristina Rose, Shyla Stylez, and Tory Lane were up on the plate here. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Larissa Dee, the lean brunette spotted on the upper middle of the front cover, was up first in a scene that included Erik Everhard, Mr. Pete, and James Deen. Given the educational theme of the entire movie, it was no surprise to see Larissa in a classroom as a foreign exchange student, the gal looking at smutty magazines during the home economics class she attended. Her fishnet stocking and mini skirt looked great on her, the thong spreading her ass cheeks apart rather well. She masturbated until the men took the hint, the gal even smoking a cancer stick before they all did her at once. Erik stuffed his face in her ass while she alternated between James and Pete for blowjobs. The men then took turns screwing her pussy and ass, the DP footage taking place shortly thereafter. There was a lot of taste testing and even some choking but my biggest concern was the lack of chemistry and inconsistent level of energy released by the young lady. She became slightly more engaged in the action as the scene continued and it ended with the trio giving her three anal creampies but it was one of the weakest scenes of the entire two disc set.

Scene Two: Missy Stone, the beautiful little hotty seen on the lower left hand corner of the front cover posing seductively in a chair, was up next as a student, this time Erik Everhard trying a role as a teacher. She needed a smoke break during her private tutoring session so she told him she needed to get her book, the gal getting busted on the roof when he caught her. He was going to make the call to her parents but they worked out a different sort of arrangement, one that relied heavily on her oral fixation as she dropped to her knees to blow him. The white shirt and skimpy daisy duke shorts helped her appeal but not half as much as her skilled tongue and mouth given the way she smoked his pole. He began boning her pussy on the roof but took her back to the classroom to give her head in a more comfortable setting. That turned into another marathon vaginal penetration session, the advertised anal following after she came hard. They anally screwed in a few positions and she was passive during that part, receiving his load of genetic juice to her mouth with a smile.
Scene Three: Kristina Rose, the Xcritic pick of female performer of the year (seen wearing glasses as she sat on the chair located on the lower right hand corner of the front cover), was then up as the final scene of the first disc with Steve Holmes and James Deen. Kristina was a bookworm in this scene and showed up her moper classmates, even staying after class for special lessons in how to pleasure a spouse. Steve was the teacher and kissed her, the gal going down on him in the classroom setting using some hand to gland combat. He gave her some oral and tapped her front and back, James returning to join them as she slobbed his knob too. Kristina has long been a little dynamo and this scene was no exception, her fit little body built for this kind of action, even the kind James added on by choking and hitting her. By getting her extra horny, she even rimmed Steve, jerking him off as she gave him (and James) full service. Their chemistry showed and the scene ended when the men unleashed their population pudding into her mouth (and onto her face) for swallowing.
Scene Four: Tory Lane, the sexual dynamo standing on the middle of the right side of the front cover, was up next as the first scene of the second disc in the role of a stern teacher. She caught Erik Everhard cheating/talking in class and berated him, making him stay afterwards upon which time she let loose with her juice to give him a sexy striptease show. Her curvy body looked great in lingerie, her tits and ass standing out as she accentuated them accordingly. Erik responded as any straight guy would, sucking her tits while diddling her before tasting her clam, Tory rewarding him like I wish a few of my teachers would have done back in the day. She inhaled his cock during the blowjob and aggressively rode his then turgid pecker with her tits, pussy, and ass; Tory one of the few gals that worked it harder in the ass than anywhere else. The energetic and chemistry filled scene ended when he bust a nut of spew into her mouth, Tory offering some post coital head as she maintained her eye contact.
Scene Five: Shyla Stylez, the voluptuous blond babe bent over and ready for action on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up next as a teacher of Erik Everhard, the lady waking up and her preparations shown before she joined her students. The students were disruptive with some naughty pictures of Erik and a classmate, leading to the class being dismissed so Shyla could sample what she saw (and needed). She gave him a tease show and went down on him, coyly using her feminine wiles as she seduced the lad. He reciprocated by going down on her and she soon impaled herself on his pecker, riding him passionately as she held on for dear life. Shyla did slow down during the anal portion of the riding but their great chemistry together shined through, both of them sweating up a storm as they used each other to get off. The fine scene finished up when she relieved him of his seed, blowing him and jerking him off to provide herself a facial.
Scene Six: MacKenzee Pierce, the wild child with a lengthy reputation proceeding her seen on the lower middle of the front cover, was up last as she worked with studly Erik Everhard and second tier mope James Deen. She portrayed a brand new teacher with all the excitement attached, finding the slacker students most inquisitive regarding sexual topics. Wanting to please them, she stripped off her restrictive clothing, her fleshy ass drawing whistles of joy from them as she continued. As expected, only two students had enough balls to join her at the head of the class, Erik and then James who were blown before they tapped that sweet pussy of hers. Once that wasn't enough, they began boning her butt though MacKenzee was a passive cock rider, especially when it came to doing anal sex. The men closed the show out by jerking off to her mouth for swallowing.
Summary: The Letter A Is For Asshole by director Erik Everhard for Jules Jordan Video was a lot of fun with plenty of fuck for the buck and strokability so I rated it as Recommended. The casting was solid and the technical values all pretty good (the audio needed some extra work) with the extras adding some value here. In short then, The Letter A Is For Asshole provided the promised anal sex by the ladies and while some of the scenes were vastly better than others, only one or two of them stood out as lacking any replay value at all so consider this a worthy selection if you're into anal sex.
