Ann Marie Rios with Rocco
Date of Production: 2011
Extras: There was a slip cover, a photogallery, a pop shot recap from the scenes, and a short Behind the Scenes feature lasting 20:46 minutes full of humor, largely consisting of a series of interviews after starting out with some flubbed lines but also including some regular BTS material too.
Audio/Video Quality: Stripper Grams was presented in a very appealing 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Mick Blue for Zero Tolerance using the MPEG-2 codec for the standard definition release (using a standard 480 resolution). The lighting was usually optimal and it generally limited the grain, video noise, and shadows substantially. The composition of the shots was usually flattering to the ladies and given the quality of the cast, this made it more enjoyable too. The fleshtones were generally accurate and the bitrate hovered in the mid 4.4 Mbps area so it looked pretty solid. There were no compression artifacts and the visuals were generally handled pretty well here, the editing and lighting nicely done. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate of most productions. The music was generic but the vocals; while plain as could be, could be heard in almost all cases; only slightly hollow at times when the ladies were making it clear their limits were being pushed.

Kagney Linn Karter with Manuel Ferrara
Body of Review: Mick Blue has long been one of the nicest guys in porn, his work for Zero Tolerance as a director almost always worthy of checking out. His latest release making it my way is Stripper Grams, a set of five scenes tied to hotties stripping off their already skimpy attire and having sex. Whatever your tastes in porn, when a cast includes such youthful looking hotties as Asa Akira, Kristina Rose, Kagney Linn Karter, and the two Rios babes (Ann Marie and Melanie), the likelihood of a winner is elevated substantially. Of interest was the diversity of male casting though, studly Mick only partaking of the women in two scenes, and Dolomite in a funny angel role tying the scenes together (akin to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “Tooth Fairy”). The cover picture where Asa Akira is scantily clad in hosiery, was fetching (to say the least), the other ladies wearing similarly appealing lingerie as well. The back cover described the scene like this: “Mick Blue delivers this hilarious original tongue-in-cheek comedy about a "Brother Angel" who visits people that need to get laid, even if they don't know it. Every star-studded scene ends in smokin' hot sex, from the delusional cowboy (Rocco Reed) who meets a dominatrix (Ann Marie Rios) and subdues her with his 'stick horse', to "Michael J of Austria" (Mick Blue using his multi-lingual skills for big laughs,) a soldier discharged from the army for his dance moves who ends up at a bachelorette party getting 'taken in' by Melanie (Melanie Rios) and her bewitching American mouth. The perfect Ken (Manuel Ferrara) and Barbie (Kagney Linn Karter ) are united in a fantasy fuck fest, while Music Girl (Kristina Rose) performs for her twisted teacher (Steve Holmes.) The final showdown between Ballerina and Jon-Jon the street dancer is interrupted by the Austrian soldier in a comic twist that ends in a delicious threesome. Truly a priceless porn masterpiece!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: The Dominatrix/The Cowboy and Betsy: Ann Marie Rios, the sexy Latina wearing a fetish outfit (second from the right side of the cover), was up first with goofy Rocco Reed, the guy more interested in his stick pony than satisfying his own stick with her help. After some dialogue between the characters, sexy Anne Marie jumps in his lap and starts kissing him, taking off her strap on dildo in favor of him going down on her. What would have been a decent Femdom scene then became a sort of generic gonzo outing where the oral by both of them led to some active vaginal riding, the levels of chemistry admittedly minimal. She was greedy in how she gobbled his package both during and at the end of the scene though, Rocco beating off to douse her with genetic juice on her mug. The company website described the scene like this: “Country western cunt Ann Marie Rios is out delivering a BDSM themed message to a local cowboy when he turns the tables on her, puts his hat on her head and stuffs his dick down her throat. She mumbles the message and smiles as he cums in her mouth!”

Scene Two: The Bride/The Soldier Meets The Bride: Melanie Rios, the appealing Latina scene in the bridal outfit on the far right side of the front cover, was up next as she took on studly Mick Blue. The set up was hilarious (guest starring Tori Black and Lori Elle) and led to her crawling into his lap, sucking his pecker heartily with her fine ass in the air (a thong helping to separate her cheeks) before she rode him hard and wet. The connection between them was again modest but there was a connection all the same, the pussy pounding positions allowing for her to actively ride at least some of the time before she knelt to receive the facial of population pudding. The company website described the scene like this: “Melanie Rios is the bride to be, but her fiancee is also about to find out she may not deserve to wear white at the ceremony anymore. Here she is getting deep-dicked by a huge rod that sprays it's sticky wad all over her wide open mouth and cum covered tongue!”
Scene Three: The Barbi Doll/Barbi Gets Her Real Life Kenl: Kagney Linn Karter, the curvy blond bombshell seen on the center of the front cover, was up next as a pink themed Barbie doll in search of her Ken, Manuel Ferrara playing the role better than anyone else could have. Kagney got her dream man after more of the hilariously cheesy dialogue, the couple finding themselves on the white couch as Kagney began to strip and blow him enthusiastically. She enjoyed wrapping her lips around his pecker and going at it, rarely allowing more than a few inches to go down her throat at a time but making it look like fun all the same. Kagney then engaged in some vaginal penetration positions but he was again too large for her to ride him as actively as I prefer to see. She was also loud in her appreciation, the ending nut of spunk rubbed out all over her face with the gal providing some post coital head. The company website described the scene like this: “Kagney Linn Karter may have flowers in her hair and a set of pretty pink beads around her neck, but it's hard for any fashion accessory to distract your eyes away from those perfect natural tits and that tight hairless pussy. Go ahead and see how long you can last with her!”
Scene Four: The Beat Box Girl/Music Box Girl and the Music Teacher: Kristina Rose, the brunette with the delicious ass seen on the far left side of the front cover, was up next as she showed her admittedly amusing dance moves in public, the gal sent to a house to play with lothario Steve Holmes. While he is a far cry from one of her better partners, he played the role fairly well, the uptight teacher coming across as having a stick up his ass while the free spirited Kristina gyrated herself silly in a manner that showcased her exceptionally popular ass. This led to her crawling into his lap and kissing him, both doing some oral in a modified 69 before they began boning actively while she yelled out in comedic fashion. It was another oral and vaginal scene though, Kristina somewhat subdued but looking as good as expected before he tossed off a round of splooge into her mouth and Kristina sucked his balls dry. The company website described the scene like this: “Pornstar Kristina Rose gives a whole new meaning to the term Boom Box in this sexy video. She starts out shaking it to the beats from her radio and finishes strong by riding a cock with her hairy pussy and helping her costar get every droplet of cum out all over her face!”
Scene Five: The Ballerina/Ballerina versus Street Dancer versus Soldier: Asa Akira, looking like an Asian princess on the front cover (second from the left), was up last with street dancing Jon Jon and professional soldier Mick Blue. The subtitles added to the fun (take the time to read them at least once) but it was their sexual exploits that made this one work better than average as Asa dropped down to take turns slobbing their knobs aggressively, the gal positioning herself all over the black couch to take their cocks balls deep inside her dripping wet snatch. The energy and passion were solid here, Asa going a little overboard with the vocals but throwing herself into the action all the same, the men rewarding her with a load of semen to her face (Mick) and ass (Jon). The company website described the scene like this: “Asa Akira is in for some deep sex today as the centerpiece of an interracial MMF threeway. Her black and white costars cram cock into both ends of their delightful Oriental playmate until her torso has more dick inside it than anything else!”
Summary: Stripper Grams by director Mick Blue for Zero Tolerance was a pleasant little stroke flick that was truthfully advertised, contained a cast of attractive ladies, and generated enough stroke value to merit a rating of Recommended. The scenes varied in terms of replay quality and strokability but most of them were appealing enough to merit additional viewings, the diversity of the themes enough to cover a lot of ground for fans. That said, Stripper Grams was a movie with five scenes, a sexy theme, and decent technical values so either pick up a copy or try out the company website which is full of a lot more of this type of gonzo porn.
