Cast: Natalia Rossi, Steve Holmes, Bobbi Starr, Jordan Ash, Aubrey Addams, Jules Jordan, Criss Strokes, Kristina Rose, James Deen
Length: 200:11 minutes
Natalia Rossi with Steve Holmes
Date of Production: 6/29/2010
Extras: The best extra was the 17:31 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, Natalia Rossi and Aubrey Addams providing an extra bit of sex. There was then a photogallery, a popshot recap, a trailer, and a company website to check out.
Audio/Video Quality: Gape Lessons was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (in 480 resolution). There was some variation in the lighting that added additional grain but I saw a few other issues as the camera kept an active stance at providing the best angles to showcase the ladies. The editing helped in this endeavor too with a movie as long as this one needing extra care to make sure that there is enough tease but also heated sexual antics, my initial impression being that this was a well rounded romp where virtually all the cast had a lot of fun. The bitrate was on the modest side yet there were few compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the length of the single disc offering (still clocking in with nearly enough material for a double disc though), fans of gonzo scenes should be very pleased. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, higher than usual with most of the movie in the 3.4 Mbps range, but varying across the board depending on the scene. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, but the visuals have long ruled in most of Jules' past works too.

Body of Review: Jules Jordan has long been one of the most successful gonzo directors in porn, his works at Jules Jordan Video often setting the bar too high for his peers to follow in terms of quality and fuck for the buck. His latest venture has been a sideline subsidiary called "The Ass Factory", all scenes released under the banner supposed to emphasize anal action more than anything else. The second such title from the company is called Gape Lessons, the four very lengthy scenes devoted to ladies that can get drilled in the asshole while stiff providing an open asshole well after the cock is removed, the phenomenon called an anal gape. While I admit that this is not one of my preferred sexual acts to look for, I saw the cast including Kristina Rose, Aubrey Addams, Natalia Rossi, and Bobbi Starr; each of these attractive gals doing anal and looking great in the process so I selected it for review. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Natalia Rossi, the young cutie featured on the lower half of the front cover, was up first as a bad student in the office of teacher Steve Holmes. She was defensive about his comments and soon flashed her panties as she reclined in her chair, playing with herself which angered him to the point where he asked how would she like it if he pulled out his pecker and showed it off (doing so in fact)? His erect member excited her and she opened the door for some quid pro quo for grades and he was soon massaging her sweet pussy, the gal dripping wet as she spouted some dirty talk and then began jerking him off. She blew him actively but paid too much attention to the camera, the semi POV camera angle not as strong as a true one would have been. On a side note, her resemblance to a younger Teagan Presley enhanced her appeal to me a lot, especially now that Teagan is girl only. Steve rimmed her and fingered her ass while she called him a dirty teacher, the scenario a bit creepy but done so playfully that I let it go thematically. The vaginal plowing led to anal and she was moderately active depending on the positions involved, some taste testing with enthusiasm by both of them quite well done. They had no personal chemistry together but it was still a heated little tryst to begin the movie on, his lesson in making her gape revealing a substantial gape "hang time" for fans to appreciate. The scene then ended when he rubbed out a wad of genetic juice to her mouth for swallowing, the gal appreciating the size of it as they once again engaged in some banter.

Scene Two: Bobbi Starr, the attractive anal queen positioned at the top center of the front cover bending over, was up next as she teased in a slow motion montage with a glass anal plug, her picture perfect lingerie outlining her perfect ass and exceptionally appealing face. She shook her ass and gyrated it enough to show she was able to do it all, the gal masturbating with the anal plug and her fingers before being joined by Jordan Ash. She tasted it and kept her ass high in the air while asking if the camera wanted to see more, additional toys brought forth to stretch her out for Jordan's use. He shoved multiple fingers in her snatch as she took the red beaded device in her ass, kissing him before kneeling below to serve as an oral cock socket. The blowjob was decent but lacked conviction, her eye contact wisely focusing on him and not the camera here. He began tapping her ass rapidly and while she wasn't initially active, she did get better as time went on. There was a lot of ATM here and her gape, while not zoomed in on as much, was still pronounced, the chemistry again weak but the sexual stamina on display elevating the scene beyond just a simple tryst. It ended when he unleashed his nut of population pudding all over her crotch, her hairy pussy decorated by the wealth of semen.
Scene Three: Aubrey Addams, the fetching little blond babe seen on the far right side of the cover, was up next as she shook her sweet ass in some incredible white booty shorts and thigh high stockings outside on the railing. She also wore a colorful bikini top but the look of her growing ass in those shorts was mesmerizing, some light video noise accompanying the scene shot on a cloudy day but otherwise it was a fine session of teasing. Jules Jordan sang her praises and she slowly stripped for him, her bubble butt looking as delicious as possible even in the artificial light of the kitchen as she walked into the house. She used an anal toy to prepare her with Criss Strokes waking over with a cock for her to suck. She inhaled the pecker readily and Aubrey's enthusiasm was solid as she knelt before him to blow the guy, a hint of personal chemistry elevating the scene a notch as Jules continually made sure the footage included some booty shots. Her tan contrasted a bit much with the light pouring in the window but she then started blowing Jules too, the camera handed off as the little vixen alternated between the men orally. Jules then went down on her and fed her the anal plug for some ATM, the gal actively riding them in her pussy and ass before ultimately doing some DP on the bed upstairs, the work on the stairs fairly impressive too. Aubrey was an active rider who threw herself into the scene, taste testing as things progressed and showing a huge anal gape for someone so small. The wonderfully heated scene then ended when the men jerked off to her face, the glazed look suiting her but Aubrey still blowing them far longer than most post coital hummers tend to be.
Scene Four: Kristina Rose, the curvy brunette babe seen featured on the upper left side of the front cover, was up last, each of the four scenes allowing enough time to properly explore all sorts of options with her like the others before her. The music was a bit obnoxious but her smoking hot body in a sheer pink top and black thong impressed as she moved throughout the house, her booty dance much more pronounced than it used to be. She playfully masturbated and used some toys beside the indoor swimming pool, James Deen joining her once she had been properly stretched out. He fingered her ass and made her taste it, going down on her front and back before she provided an aggressive blowjob at his knees. Kristina has long had a degree of chemistry with James so the scene was as good as the last one in that sense, the sloppy hummer ending for her to do some active vaginal and a technical DP which led to the full anal moments later. Kristina gaped large and James got slightly rough with her, the initial anal passive until she warmed up for a more active ride. She gave him a lot of oral between positions to clean him off and the ending load of spunk came after some vaginal penetration, James busting all over her crotch, lower abdomen, and whatever streams lost control to go to her tits of neck.
Summary: Gape Lessons by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video had superior levels of fuck for the buck but the men were not all the highest quality so the resulting chemistry was not always as consistent. The extras were not the best either but the combination of technical expertise and female casting certainly allowed it to measure up to a respectable rating of Recommended all the same, my advice to be adjusted according to your own preferences for the cast and actions included (as described above). In short, if you are into anal gapes but want them done in a more straight forward manner than many gonzo directors tend to offer these days, you may find Gape Lessons to be right up your (back) alley so give it a look and see why so many fans adore Kristina Rose, Aubrey Addams, Natalia Rossi and Bobbi Starr these days, each of them providing their own quirks in the anal action arena.
