Audio/Video Quality: Anal Invitation was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Raul Cristian (individual scenes credited to Chris Streams on the company website) for Jules Jordan Video in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (including 480i resolution). There was some variation in the lighting that added additional grain but I saw a few other issues as the camera kept the ladies looking their best (presumably thanks to Chris Streams at work). The editing was more consistent this time, rarely any of the scenes standing out as being messed up or really enhanced substantially because of it. The bitrate was on the low side (probably due to the single disc nature of the production) yet there were few obvious compression artifacts, the haloing minimal and given the sheer amount of quality footage on display, most fans will be quite happy. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, higher than usual with most of the movie in the 4.1 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, an area that seemed slightly better than earlier efforts and an area that Raul could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theaters in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Body of Review: Raul Cristian makes lots of foreign porn but his best work for Jules Jordan Video involves engaging domestic ladies in his type of hardcore antics, pushing their respective limits beyond the vanilla porn that so heavily populates the market here. His latest flick is called Anal Invitation, the strict adherence to the ladies doing anal helping make this more focused than some of his recent works (which still garnered some serious acclaim in terms of strokability). With a big name cast including Lisa Ann, Chanel Preston, Courtney Cummz, and Tory Lane (okay, and a secondary starlet by the name of Angel Vain who was also quite fuckable and someone that I think has a tremendous amount of potential), I knew this would be spank bank material galore for the masses that still enjoy porn; the scenes probably causing a stir when the ladies were being shot live on the internet with all the usual fan participation taking place on the “Live Gonzo” label. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lisa Ann, the wonderfully ripe MILF showcased on the left side of the front cover, was up first in her red bikini lingerie, her black stockings adding to the allure she presented before working with studly Manuel Ferrara. The scene was shot on 1/4/2012 according to the company website (that may have been the date it was available for re-broadcast, your mileage may vary) and she was looking fitter than ever as she teased at great length in the modernistic home. The couple hooked up on the white couch and ate each other out, first doing a 69 before moving into taking turns with each other. Their chemistry was great and as advertised, this was a full service scene, Lisa excelling during her blowjob, the vaginal, and the anal with very active riding. The enthusiasm and energy elevated the scene a lot, Manuel ending it by tossing out a wealth of population pudding on her feet at the end.
Scene Two: Chanel Preston, the gorgeous young lady featured on the middle of the front cover, was up next in some colorful bikini undies and fishnet stockings, her tease making the most of her fine body as she quickly moved to seducing Manuel Ferrara in the bedroom by the bathroom where she showed off so well. He ate her ass and she reciprocated in due time, their hands and mouths unable to keep away from one another. The production date for the scene was listed as 12/1/2011 and they got rough with each other but sexually so, both giving out exactly what they wanted in return in another chemistry filled pairing. Manuel focused more on the ass this time and aside from some choking, few will find anything to complain about as she seemed to get off a few times while his pecker pounded her perfect pucker. There appeared to be a second camera used this time, or during a break the settings might have been changed, but it was another technically sound tryst with everything going for it, the foot fetish ending in a knelt down facial of spunk plastering her face (and being swallowed).
Scene Three: Tory Lane, the fluffy brunette seen on the lower right hand corner of the front cover, was up next with both Mr. Pete and Steve Holmes in this scene taken from 1/13/2012. Tory has long been associated with the title extreme queen and this scene was no different, the gal embracing her inner whore to go all out driving the viewer and her partners crazy with desire. She teased in the kitchen and the lighting could have been better but aside from some grain, it was clear that whatever she did while on a hiatus of sorts, Tory was once again ready to rumble. Her dressed was hiked up and pulled down to reveal her assets, the gal climbing all over the men on the couch. They had their cocks ready to go and started roughing her up, some spanking and aggressively fingering complimenting her dynamic as she slobbed their knobs and the men took turns plowing her pussy and ass. They did move to doing some double penetration too (DP being advertised on the cover), the use of a powerful wand vibrator (perhaps from the Evolved Novelties line I used to review) adding to her pleasure. The look of the scene again appeared to use a second camera and the guys finished off using her three holes with two glazing facials of spunk, the energy and chemistry still nicely done.
Scene Four: Angel Vain, the plus sized blond seen on the upper right corner of the cover, was up next in some tight clothing, her lingerie not covering her healthy curves for long as she teased on the stairs and landing. I like fluffy gals and this Texan fit the bill nicely, Manuel Ferrara getting to try her out on 1/25/2012. Angel had all the qualities of a fine porn starlet too, Manuel sucking her ass and pussy before the two began a varied bunch of reciprocation and penetrative positions. I believed that Angel got off a few times and loved sucking his pecker as much as actively riding it, the gal impaling herself soundly on his rod vaginally before the expected anal showed her somewhat more passive. It was a good scene overall though, the gal kneeling to take his facial glazing of splooge and providing post coital sucking like she adored him.
Scene Five: Courtney Cummz, the lovely young lady seen on the upper right side of the front cover, posing just below Angel to show off her body before working with Mr. Pete on 1/5/2012. Her purple patterned bikini was tiny and her white fishnet stockings the kind on the cover (with larger than usual holes), her active teasing benefitting my libido quite well. She spanked her ass and fingered that perfect pucker of hers, her solo action nearly as wonderful as the enthusiastic outing she engaged in as needed here to stand out. Courtney has long been a ball drainer in my opinion, her sexual antics never letting me down as she puts so much of that “I love to fuck” quality in so much of what she does. While Pete would not be in my top ten meat puppets for her to work with, he did a capable job with her and the oral led to some wildly active vaginal before she slowed down somewhat to do the anal. As she warmed up, she got more active though and the taste testing marked another case of her pulling out all stops in a scene, Pete pulling out to unleash his seed all over her crotch.
Summary: Anal Invitation by director Raul Cristian for Jules Jordan Video was a title dedicated to anal antics using an almost completely all star cast of anal queens, each of them having fun and pushing limits to go wild. There was great replay value and strokability going on in all the scenes even if I would have preferred to watch the scenes unfold as they were aired live on the company website, the title earning every bit of a Highly Recommended. Lisa Ann, Courtney Cummz, Tory Lane, and Chanel Preston were all great in their chemistry-filled anal trysts with Angel Vain, a fluffy blond hailing from Texas, providing some nice action too. In short, Anal Invitation had some good technical values, solid extras, and a cast of very attractive women built for comfort so check it out if you want some prime stroking material.
