Audio/Video Quality: Bobbi Starr’s One was presented in a stark 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as directed by Bobbi Starr for Evil Angel(under their Buttman Magazine Choice line). The video bitrate of the production varied a lot but was rarely a factor, the edge enhancement and other minor flaws not generally hurting the look of the production. The lighting was changed in each scene and the artistic leaning on each scene left me wondering if a more straightforward approach (as other companies have done lately) might have worked better for the stroke flick. Still, it was a lot of solo fuck for the buck, the addition of a single dose of genetic juice (population pudding, spunk, splooge, or whatever else you prefer to call it) courtesy of cameraman Nate Liquor a change of pace. The audio was basic too, the 2.0 Dolby Digital offering using the usual 192 Kbps bitrate and sounding rather generic, though some of the music was okay when applied. As I greatly prefer vocals over music, I admit that this worked better for me when the audio was turned down in the many parts where the music dominated.

Body of Review: Bobbi Starr may be the newest director at Evil Angel but she is no newcomer to hardcore smut. As an extreme queen performer, Bobbi has shown the world her physical abilities on par with other forms of athletes but her newest title is something leaning in a different direction with Bobbi Starr’s One. The show is a series of female solo masturbation scenes using kinky settings or fetishes to add some flavor to the production, Bobbi joined by Asa Akira, Tori Lux, Julie Night, and others in scenes of varying quality. The company website described the show like this: “Fresh smut director Bobbi Starr is again venturing into new territory - redefining the solo masturbation video! This traditionally soft genre of adult entertainment has been dealt a shockingly hardcore twist. Bobbi gives her kinky friends freedom to indulge their nastiest impulses in multiple graphic scenes of sensuous self-love. Asa Akira wears latex lingerie as she deep throats a huge rubber cock. Reaming her ass up to her knuckles, Asa licks her fingers clean. Smokin' Russian babe Alysa pets her bald pussy, dragging on a cigarette. Cameraman Nate Liquor steps in and gives Alysa a POV cum facial! Then it's back to solo action, as the petite girl shoves a collection of giant vegetables - carrot, corncob, daikon radish - up her expanding asshole. Kara Price shoves nearly her whole fist down her gullet, then sits for an interview, explaining which of various objects she likes in her ass. The freckled beauty follows with an explicit demonstration. Blindfolded Julie Night writhes in rope bondage as Bobbi uses a vibrating wand to bring her to climax. Next, Julie has a messy food-fetish session with bowls of exploding fruit which she consumes in unconventional ways. Pretty blonde Tori Lux plays with herself in a dreamy room full of white gauze. She returns as a punky brunette, vibrating herself to orgasm on Bobbi's bed. Finally, the director herself reveals three sides of her sexuality: A voyeuristic private peek, a showcase of Bobbi's self-choking techniques, and a wild, latex-wearing Bobbi jamming a long rubber toy into her butt. One is all you need!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Asa Akira, a popular Asian babe, was up first in very heavy makeup and latex lingerie. She was located in a bare, white-bricked room with all sorts of camera tricks deployed. She fingered herself and then used toys, the setting changing to a mirror where a suction cup dildo hung from the wall for her to play with. She then ended up in latex again on a kitchen floor, anally fingering herself before it all ended about 34 minutes into the show. I like Asa but this performance did not do much for me.
Scene Two: Alysa Gap, a lean Russian chick with an all natural body, was up next on a toilet and elsewhere, massaging her crotch and later smoking a cigarette before it ended when Nate Liquor abruptly walked in and beat off onto her face. The pacing here was slower than the first scene and she was attractive enough, it was just too short and limited for my tastes.
Scene Three: Kara Price, a cute gal with brownish hair, was up next wielding a bucket of vegetables while wearing only her panties. They came off and she bent over, soon taking all of the large foodstuffs into her ass. This was followed by a few more scenarios of her messy fun, ending with one where more traditional toys were used to stretch her ass out on the floor of the kitchen.
Scene Four: Bobbi Starr was up next in a supporting role assisting BDSM queen Julie Night. Julie writhed on the floor all tied up, some latex shorts with an opening for the pussy allowing Bobbi to use a wand vibrator on her friend after blindfolding her. Julie then wore a purple latex outfit that covered her up more thoroughly, this time on the floor with a bunch of food to tear apart and taste. Unlike Kara, she did not try to insert everything into her ass, smearing it all over herself more frequently than insertion. This led to her cleaning up and rebooting to use toys in her ass, some of the footage a lot more strokable than the rest.
Scene Five: Tori Lux, a blond with many tattoos, was up next as she diddled herself in a white room, the second setting being a modest bed, and the third speeding up the music while she donned a blue anime chick wig to continue stuffing her ass and muffin with toys. There were times this scene worked for me but certainly not always.
Scene Six: Bobbi Starr, the ever popular extreme queen, then finished up the production wearing an assortment of fetish attire, ending with the one featured on the front cover. She spent most of her time jamming objects into her ass (no surprise there) and did so erotically, showing a sense of self satisfaction that was not as common in the various scenes as I would have liked. Her control of her sphincter muscles was displayed and the facial expressions she gave enhanced the dynamic that she was having fun, the sheer size of the toys used coming across as stunts rather than what she would really use in her private life. Still, the idea of her getting off believably did appear and she did try for something different as she claimed she would, your mileage varying as a result.

Summary: Bobbi Starr’s One by director Bobbi Starr for Evil Angel was all over the map on technical as well as thematic levels for me. The effects, overuse of music in so many scenes, and the emphasis on toys lowered the overall value for me in some ways since it came off more like performance art rather than strokable porn so the best I could rate this one was as a qualified Rent It (and I like Bobbi’s works to date). I had little doubt that the women selected what they wanted to do but the way it was captured and presented just did not work for me so check it out before spending much money. In short, Bobbi Starr’s One seemed almost as if she felt compelled to go outside her comfort zone in terms of what was offered, the choppy presentation of the scenes (such as abruptly jumping from one section in a scene to another without warning) not helping it either. I still look forward to seeing Bobbi’s next work with partners and sticking closer to the beaten path but this one was a decidedly different package of female solo scenes that might work better for others.
