Cast: Katie Summers, Mick Blue, Lily Carter, Michael Stefano, Chastity Lynn, Erik Everhard, Laura Crystal, Ashlynn Leigh
Length: 204:32 minutes
Date of Production: 12/10/2011
Extras: While there was a cumshot recap from the scenes, a photogallery, and spam, the 21:31 minute long behind the scenes feature was pretty decent this time (lots of interview with the ladies).
Audio/Video Quality: Anal Students was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Grazer for Elegant Angel using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480i resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mick's works in the past, adjusting comfortably to his role as director for the company, this being a POV fuck flick. The grain was minimal and I got the impression that Mick spent some time to use the camera angles to enhance the looks of the nicely made up ladies, their tits always the focal point of the action. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 3.8 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it, the opening tease sessions looking like they were much lower resolution and frame rate for some reason. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, providing each with some nod to their relative strengths, the editing by Bruce Carter cleaning up the footage nicely into a series of nicely honed clips. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 256 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot. There was also no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers. The music was decent again too, the tease portions of the scene the only time when it was noticed.

Body of Review: Grazer is the directing name of Mick Blue when he shoots for Elegant Angel, his first few attempts showing something of an upgrade over many of his previous works. The likable fellow is generally considered one of the better male performers and his work behind the camera has been developing favorably for some time, resulting in a movie like Anal Students. This gonzo release has five lengthy scenes full of tease and hardcore action, Mick jumping into some scenes (to do Katie Summers and Laura Crystal) while his friends did Lily Carter, Chastity Lynn, and Ashlynn Leigh. I expected that each scene would include anal sex, be done by younger women who were not proficient in the act of back door banging, and that the technical values would be as high end as always given the company. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Katie Summers, a skinny Texan with bleach blond hair, was up first as she teased in a modern living room while wearing black and pink lingerie. She has been known for some fun scenes in the past and provided another here, while not exactly inspired, it was replayable with some nice stroke value including oral, vaginal, and anal courtesy of Mick Blue. He did a good job working with her despite modest chemistry together, her all natural body certainly inviting even if she did not appear to be so much a student as a well versed anal enthusiast. There was some POV head as in Mick’s other scene and some toy use which was frequent in the movie, the taste testing leading to a kneeling pop shot of spunk landing on her tongue to be swallowed. The company website described the scene like this: “Katie Summers is an athletic blonde with perky tits and dark roots. Katie wore high heels, barely-there black bra and thong, and a naughty little grin, to entice Mick Blue into starting this 42 minute scene. Perhaps more amazing than Katie's body is the amount of enticing Mick waits through! But it's worth watching Katie put her toys in her ass, to show us what she's really here for - anal. Such a flawless bottom on her... enjoy watching it get drilled for the latter half of the show!”
Scene Two: Lily Carter, the fetching young lass featured on the front cover (in a picture that just did not do her justice by the way), was up next as she followed the formulaic proceeding to show why the company has deemed her one of the bright spots of the year in their various productions. While leaner than I prefer, she had an ample ass and natural body, some moves proving she has lots of potential for staying power if she doesn’t let it go to her head as others have in the past. She was paired up with now-retired male Michael Stefano, her interview adding something for me as much as the last one did as she reclined on the couch. She was also comfortable with her anal proclivities and some superb oral skills, her active riding skills best shown in the vaginal pounding she took though she provided a sight for the anal portion of the scene too. The scene closed out as she leaned back on the couch from the floor and Michael rubbed out a nut of genetic juice, the lovely lady sucking the remains down with ease and a decadent sensibility. The company website described the scene like this: “Lily Carter is totally obsessed with being penetrated, as she chats and flirts in the nude, at the beginning of this 39 minute scene. Her intensely flawless bottom, and the horny expressions on her pretty face, will get you just as ready for the action as it did for today's stud on deck. Michael Stefani gets Lily's mouth, her pussy, and finally the invitation for lots of anal, before Lily masturbates with her mouth open, waiting for the cumshot!”
Scene Three: Chastity Lynn, a major cutie that I have long appreciated as a talented fuck bunny, was up next in a sheer nighty covering bikini undies and stockings. Her makeup looked a bit much but a nice upgrade over some of her previous efforts, her tease and interview allowing her to model her tasty body quite well before she was paired up with studly Erik Everhard in the house. She was flexible and willing, her ability to push past her limits, making this another solid stroke scene to appreciate, Erik focusing on hammering her sweet ass until he beat off a load of splooge to her anal gape. The company website described the scene like this: “Chastity Lynn looks as tempting as a blonde can be, in her lingerie and pantyhose, to start this 44 minute scene. Chastity is old enough to know all the right moves, and her flawless skin and small frame make you want to feel those moves up close. Erik Everhard is on deck to do just that, but not until she's primed herself with anal toys! That's right, this hardcore little blonde is as big a fan of anal as you are...”
Scene Four: Laura Crystal, a sexy blond foreigner with a great ass and decent implants, was up next during a lengthy tease session outside in the sun, a jeweled anal plug warming her up for the action with Mick Blue. She was not much for words during the interview, preferring to masturbate on the couch with an assortment of toys instead, so she also gave a major departure from the previous gals in terms of how much of an “anal student” she was versus a seasoned performer (whether in movies or for people on a one to one basis). She gave him some POV head and he reciprocated, leading to a variety of penetrative positions that emphasized anal once she was warmed up on the black leather couch. It ended when he jerked off to her face, the splooge partly swallowed as it fell down her face (Mick giving her flowers as a present). The company website described the scene like this: “Laura Crystal has that flawless magazine cover body that makes you do a head-snap and forget where you are. Watch her behind closed doors, stretching her asshole with larger and larger toys until it's time to play with the real thing, in this 38 minute hardcore scene. Laura's blonde hair, big eyes, and big tits stare up at you while she blows Mick Blue in POV. After that, this anal freak wants the toys to stay in play ...but only until Mick's done with her pussy and ready for ass!”
Scene Five: Ashlynn Leigh, a relative newcomer to porn with a pretty face and smoking young body, was up last with Michael Stefano as she followed the formula. The tease by the bay of large windows was nice and her sexy black lingerie enhanced her looks enough to gain my undivided attention. She had some nice moves and I admit to liking the fishnet stockings on her sweet legs, her ass a bit marked up but desirable nonetheless. She had an almost girlish playfulness that I appreciated and hope to see more of in the future, her interview short but her masturbation sequence seemingly longer, her oral skills certainly proving some experience worth noting. Michael only wanted to fuck her in the ass though, a waste given her shaven snatch, but she warmed up to the back door planking soon enough, her dirty talk eliciting his round of semen into her mouth and face. The company website described the scene like this: “Ashlyn Leigh knows she's not fooling anybody with that sweet little summer dress... the fishnet pantyhose give it away, she's in the mood to fuck! Michael Stefano is on deck and standing at attention, ready for duty, in today's 35 minute hardcore scene. Before he even finds his way into the shot, though Ashlyn's got time to play with her anal toys... good news for Michael! He gets to bang her pooper and cum on her face!”
Summary: Anal Students by director Grazer for Elegant Angel earned a rating of Recommended from me thanks to the casting, general quality of anal penetration, and the strokability of the provided footage. For the most part, the casting and advertised action were exactly what I expected, the minor technical issues barely enough to worry about (if short of what one gets from Nutsack or Mason’s better efforts) so I felt it was worth picking up. In short, Anal Workout did not just focus on shot out performers as so many titles elsewhere seem so willing to do, nor did it try to come across as some romantic couples show, Mick making sure that all the basics were covered so give it a look if you’re into younger ladies engaging in anal sex.
