Katie St. Ives
Audio/Video Quality: Bush 2 was presented in a decent 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director Mason for Elegant Angel. The camera work was again solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows so the picture appeared to be in line with her other work to date. Mason has made or assisted on a number of titles over the years, the technical matters taking back seat to the raw energy of the sex, but her skill levels have definitely been improving with the camera too, showing she pays attention for those that care but doesn’t dwell on technical aspects. I saw no compression artifacts though there was about 4.1 Mbps video bitrate but the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the ladies and their well lit bodies. The compositions of the shots helped maximize the potential of the ladies too, rarely relying on extreme close ups all the time as some seem destined to do and the editing by Bossman Hall looking pretty tight. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, the grunts and groans heard well enough but the music by ProductionTrax elevating the scenes nicely in most cases.
Body of Review: Mason is thought of very fondly by the critics at Xcritic, her peers at Elegant Angel also sharing in the glow of their collective body of work in recent years. Her latest title is called Bush 2, showcasing babes such as cover gal Jessie Andrews, curvy Katie St. Ives, sexual dynamo Francesca Le, and others worth some of your hard earned cash. The idea this time was to showcase ladies that sported at least some pubic hair, the shaven snatches most of their peers in the industry provide often giving a distinctively different feeling. I’m personally on the fence when it comes to the shave or hairy twat question, preferring ladies that neatly trim their body hair rather than remove it altogether but there is a wild look to the idea so if this is your thing, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jessie Andrews, the fetching young lady featured on the front cover so handsomely, was up first as she teased the camera with her small patch of pubic hair. The upbeat music worked for her visibly happy demeanor, the gal shaking her body as though she didn’t have a care in the world. The playful tease montage then led her to embracing studly Mick Blue, the couple ending up on the white couch to continue making out. Mick felt her snatch and pulled on it, going down on her before pounding her pussy rapidly as Jessie cried out in a combination of pleasure and pain. She had ample time to blow him once he eased up on her, both of them doing more oral (Jessie even throating him) but focusing on the vaginal penetration positions. While she was not a particularly active rider, Jessie seemed to be having fun, Mick eventually rubbing out a nut of spunk to her pubes to end things up. The company website described the scene like this: “Jessie Andrews is feeling even more playful than usual, in today's 26 minute hardcore feature. She's a little less composed than you're used to seeing her, too. Once she gets her pussy eaten, she can't wait to watch Mick Blue's manhood punching her insides. This sexy, sensitive sweetheart takes him in every position before riding him, but he puts her right back down with her legs in the air so he can cum on her pubes!”
Scene Two: Katie St. Ives, a sexy woman with very pretty eyes, was up next in her red top and short shorts as she walked around the contemporary home. She stripped when she found a mirror and the camera lingered as she explored her sexuality, her thick thatch of black hair topping off a very pretty pussy indeed. The music was more subdued this time, her solo efforts including some showering and lathering up of her hair before Manuel Ferrara joined her. As the reigning stud in the jizz biz, he provided exactly what was needed to elevate her performance to the next level, kissing her and going down on her to get her off even before he boned her silly. Katie seemed to adore the guy, sitting on his face as she winced in the combination of pleasure and pain, the romantic bout of vaginal boning leading to another pop shot of genetic juice to the crotch of a sweet young lady. The company website described the scene like this: “Katie St. Ives is just as horny and sensitive as ever, in this 26 minute scene with Manuel Ferrara. It's win-win... she's got a body you just want to grab and molest... and Katie loves nothing more than to be thrown down and fucked! Even when she's standing up with her back against the wall and a leg over Manuel's shoulder, she still looks like she's melting with every stroke!”
Scene Three: Francesca Le, an experienced lady with a world class ass, was up next in a quick tempo tease montage that included some time by the pool in the perfect sunlight. Her neatly coiffed snatch drew my attention more than a little bit, her oiling up looking great to me. She was paired up in the house with Alex Gonz, his hands all over her as she responded well to his touch, the gal rubbing herself on his turgid pecker before they went down on one another. This was a no holds barred oral outing by the couple, her hand to gland combat enhancing the moment before they boned like crazy teenagers in heat. Their animal magnetism worked well, the active vaginal pounding even better than the excellent oral they provided. Francesca was very vocal too, her sweaty body glistening as Alex tossed off a wad of population pudding to her snatch (Francesca then diddling herself until another orgasm before tasting his spew). The company website described the scene like this: “Francesca Le lubes her sexy body inside and out as she lays naked under the sun, to draw you in for this hot and hardcore 30 minute scene. Francesca is passionate even for a Latina, and it shows when she meets up with her male scene partner. She loves nothing more than having her body pressed against a man, so she's easily seduced into some 69ing. Then her big tits bounce while she rides his dick!”
Scene Four: Dana DeArmond, once considered the matron of “alt-porn”, was up next to again establish her true credentials in the gonzo world. She wore a black leotard and moved it aside to show her hairy snatch, the mid tempo music suitable for her as she teased with a modicum of precision. I’ve seen the woman a number of times over the years and she is looking leaner than ever, prancing about the house as she masturbated. Once the montage was over, she was paired up with her favored partner James Deen, her showering antics working nicely for me though nothing like the way he got her revved up with his fingers and mouth. James then fed her some of her own juices, vaginally pounding on her with even more intermittent oral by both of them between positions on the bed. She kept superior eye contact and did a good job this time, actively riding his pecker until he launched his wad of splooge all over her hairy pubes (both of them rubbing her out to get her off with some anal fingering). The company website described the scene like this: “Dana Dearmond is always a treat to work with - just ask James Dean, now that he's had his turn, in this 26 minute hardcore scene. He catches her playing with herself and steps up to surprise her. She was already horny enough before being approached by a man wearing a suit and a grin... just imagine how wound up she gets when her pussy's getting licked and fucked in front of the camera!”
Scene Five: Dani Jensen, a cute redhead who bears a passing resemblance to one of the more irritating characters on the HBO series “Game of Thrones”, was up last but hardly least as she followed the formula. Her eyes were gloriously attractive and she sported a very appealing bush of red hairs, her light complexion and graceful walking ending her up on the white couch to masturbate before being paired up with studly Manuel Ferrara. Her solo efforts were then matched by his oral on her, her blowjob on the light side since she couldn’t take more than a few inches of his girth into her mouth. There was some active vaginal riding from there, the gal rubbing his pecker on her pubic hair at times to enhance the friction. He delighted in getting her off at least twice (one of the orgasms towards the end seemed to last a really long time) and the scene showed him firing off his load of ball batter to spit it out onto her leg from there. The company website described the scene like this: “Dani Jensen struts her sexy body all over the set to let us worship her perfect skin, tight curves, and redhead libido a while. When Manuel Ferrara steps up to see if she's ready, the taste of Dani's pussy keeps him in the shot for the rest of this 25 minute runtime. Dani's ready, alright... and once she's felt Manuel's tongue against her clit a few times, she's ready to do anything he wants!”
Summary: Bush 2 by director Mason for Elegant Angel had some fine scenes full of strokable action and replay value, the chemistry in a couple of them really assisting to earn a rating of Recommended or better. From the youthful zeal of Jessie Andrews to the MILF appeal of Francesca Le, or even the curvy chemistry displayed by Katie St. Ives working with her favorite boy toy Manuel Ferrara, the splendid combination of technical aspects, attention to detail, and casting some of the best performers available made this one stand out even for those who don’t care about pubic hair placement. In short, Bush 2 was truthfully advertised and all five scenes offered up something more than generic circus act gonzo sex, the relative degree of chemistry in most scenes added in with that elusive fun factor I mention so often in regards to the company’s works that fans should appreciate this one.
