The latest in Tom Byron's series that focuses on ladies with a bit to spare back there, House Of Ass 12 features some nice looking ladies with some lovely looking derrieres but isn't as ass-centric as you might want it to be, given that it's basically promising us a literal house-load of it. How much ass exactly makes up a house's worth? Tough to say, exactly, but it's gotta be more than what's here. That said, as far as quality straight up regular old gonzo sex compilations go, Byron's done a fine job here. Each of the five foxy females appearing here is easy on the eyes and evidently quite a spirited fuck in her own right and that counts for a lot. Just don't go in expecting anything on the level of, say. Ass Parade
There's no plot to speak of and each scene features only the slightest of build ups, but it does what it does quite well. Here's a look:
Scene 1 - London Keyes And Nick Manning: I've said it before but isn't London Keyes one of the best things to happen to porno in a long time? She's gorgeous, she's fun, and she fucks like a champ. Her enthusiasm coupled with her natural good looks have gone a long way to earning her an understandably growing fan base and every time she shows up, a smile hits my face and a bulge hits my pants. It's a wonderful thing. Regardless, here she is in all her naked glory. She teases the camera and once she's got our attention, lucky Nick Manning gets to make out with her. After some kissing her clothes come off and he gets those tits in his mouth for a few before she works his prick into her mouth and gives him some deep throat. She diddles herself a bit while she works him over and then they fuck fairly aggressively from all the standard positions, with doggy and cowgirl being the two that show off her perfect ass the best. She breaks to blow him now and again and after her fucks her and fingers her ass a bit, blows his load onto her pretty face. Lucky bastard.
Scene 2 - Rebecca Linares And Tom Byron: I'm biased but it's hard to follow London these days. That said, lovely Rebecca Linares, a stone cold fox in her own right, is up to the challenge. She and long timer Tom get down to it after a tease and then a quick interview session. They fondle and rub up against one another and then she gives him some pretty serious head. She rides him and plays with his balls a bit and then he fucks her from behind while she works her clit, maximizing her bone time. She breaks to blow him and then climbs back on top for some more deep dicking and Tom finishes things off just as you or I would by stroking off onto her pretty face. Well done.
Scene 3 - Astrid Jaymes And Justin Young: This scene also starts off with a nice tease before breaking to an quick interview segment. It's mildly amusing, but we want sex, right? I guess getting to know a girl before seeing her get fucked is the polite thing to do. Regardless, once the action starts back up, lovely Astrid gets her snatch gobbled and fingered a fair bit before administering the prescribed reciprocated oral to Mr. Young. They screw from a few different angles - all the expected ones are here, cowgirl and reverse, spoon, doggy, and there's some nice pussy to mouth clean up thrown in for good measure. Astrid's got a fine ass but the camera doesn't let us see as much of it as we should. Justin blows his load onto her pretty face to end things properly.
Scene 4 - Nicole Ray And Nick Manning: Nicole struts around and shows off the goods, only to sit down and talk for a bit too long with her co-stars. Again, it's a bit disruptive, but this scene makes up for it once the sex starts. She takes her top off and shows off her tits before going down on Nick, who seems pretty impressed by her oral abilities and is kind enough to return the favor, fingering her and munching away at her box. He fucks her while she plays with her clit and the camera gets in pretty close here, which is a nice touch. Again, most ass-centric camera work would have helped this one live up to its title, but the sex is hot and Nicole is really going to town here and you can tell Nick is into it too. HE blows his load onto her face to end the scene.
Scene 5 - Monique Alexander And Tom Byron: Last but not least, cover girl Monique does her interview bit but with that out of the way gets down to business. She shows off her body for the camera and does a fine job of turning us on, really working her sex appeal nicely. Tom's getting into things pretty quickly and he gets her naked and spread as fast as he can. He eats her pussy and she gives him head before she lets him slip it in. They got at it with a lot of spirit here, the cowgirl standing out as it's really the only part that shows off her backside as nicely as it should. She blows him and he slips it back in only to pull out a while later, let her suck his cock some more and then blow his load onto her face, thus ending the scene and the feature.
Overall, what's here is good, but Tom should have called it House Of Pussy, because truth in advertising is a good thing.
This shot on digital video production looks pretty clean presented here in a reasonably stable anamorphic 1.78.1 widescreen transfer. There is some mild edge enhancement in a couple of spots and a noticeable bit of mpeg compression evident throughout in the darker scenes. Skin tones look nice and natural, the compositions are dead on (though some of the camera work in a couple of spots is quite shaky), and aside from the fact that this digital video production looks like a digital video production and as such suffers from the minor defects usually associated with the format, everything looks as good as you'd realistically expect it to.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is quite sufficient. The dialogue comes through cleanly and clearly as do all of the moans and groans. There is no background music used anywhere during the feature aside from the opening credits and the levels do tend to fluctuate quite a bit from scene to shining scene but aside from that there isn't much to whine about here. The audio is fine.
Aside from a photo gallery, some trailers and a web-link, there is the aforementioned bonus scene with Savannah Stern that was originally included on House Of Ass 4. It's just shy of twenty eight minutes long and while it looks just a little bit dated, it features Miss Stern before her chest augmentation ruined her good looks for some of us, and for that, it's worth checking out. It's your standard girl on guy scene though the camera does tend to focus on her posterior a bit more than average, which makes sense.
There's a Behind The Scenes (14:18) featurette here that includes some good clips of Astrid teasing a guy, and some more (and very welcome) footage of London talking about her scene and then cleaning up in the shower. There's also some footage of Monique Alexander in here, talking quite frankly about anal sex.
While a bit more ass-vision would have gone a long way to filling this house, this is still a pretty stroke worthy collection of scenes. It may not work as a fetish video, per se, but it does provide five strong scenes featuring some up and comers and a few well established ladies and it presents a nice variety of different looking girls. The quality of the presentation is decent as are the extras. House Of Ass 12 could have been better, but it delivers some pretty solid sex and as such comes recommended.
