Cast: Asa Akira, Jules Jordan, Steve Holmes, Chris Strokes, Nacho Vidal, Winston Burbank
Length: 144:44 minutes
Date of Production: 8/31/2012
Extras: The best extra was the 11:22 minute long Behind the Scenes feature since it was exclusively additional sex footage and tease. There was then a photogallery, a biography, a pop shot recap, trailers, a cast list, and a company website to check out.
Audio/Video Quality: Asa Akira: To The Limit was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color the movie was shot in by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video. There was some variation in the lighting that added additional grain but I saw a few other issues as the camera kept an active stance at providing the best angles to showcase the ladies. The editing helped in this endeavor too with a movie as long as this one needing extra care to make sure that there is enough tease but also heated sexual antics, my initial impression being that this was a well rounded romp where virtually all the cast had a lot of fun. The bitrate was on the modest side yet there were few compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the length of the single disc offering, fans of gonzo scenes should be pleased. The company watermark was observed in the lower right hand corner of the scenes, still unobtrusive in most of the scenes. 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, but the visuals have long ruled in most of Jules' past works too.

Body of Review: Jules Jordan and his company, Jules Jordan Video, are synonymous with high end gonzo porn. His latest single disc release is called Asa Akira: To The Limit, the director once again showcasing a single performer he feels is worthy of additional praise. In the past, such efforts have resulted in awards and jumpstarted the careers of newcomers & veterans alike, my belief being that Jules is one of the few that can truly make a career for someone when he admires their talents. In this case, the lady is sultry Asian babe Asa Akira, the lady already having shined in a multitude of showcase efforts at other companies, Jules truly kicking ass yet again to break free from formulas others use in order to give Asa lots of room to fuck as she saw fit. While all his previous efforts were used to revive careers of the ladies, Asa is currently on top of the porn Pantheon in many ways so this production was slightly different in terms of how the dynamic worked. 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, dressed in her red and black fetish attire as shown on the front cover, was up first giving a great tease outside on a sunny day. She was as lean and perfect as ever, the upbeat music working for her as she strut around the pool and house. As strokable as the tease was, she ended up in the house servicing Jules Jordan, Steve Holmes, and Chris Strokes, their hands pawing her and exploring every nook and cranny she had. This led to her taking all of them orally, jerking one off while slobbing the knob of another, the guys spanking her and gobbling her gash as readily as ever. Asa’s enthusiasm and energy were delightful as she initiated a blow bang, the men getting as hard as possible before they started taking turns banging her snatch and ass; eventually making her air tight (a cock in her pussy, ass, and mouth at the same time). Asa rode them hard and aggressively too, pushing back to meet their thrusts and giving great eye contact when possible. She did a lot of taste testing too, clearly enjoying herself as she was pushed to the limits by the men, the guys tossing out loads of splooge into her open mouth and all over her face as she gargled the spew.
Scene Two: Asa Akira, next up in black mesh as she slowly teased around the house, crawled over to masturbating Jules Jordan when his growing rod caught her eye in the bedroom. She put on some solo effort of her own as she took off her panties and eyed his wonder wand, the beauty licking his shaft before giving him a fantastic blowjob in POV fashion. The slow nature of her work built up speed and passion as she continued, her smile and whispered desires leading to her very actively riding his rod vaginally. Asa poured on the heat and was very vocal, her outright enthusiasm driving her to impale herself on his turgid member like she was possessed. Seeing her ass pump up and down as her pussy gobbled his pecker was awesome, Asa then shoving a bunch of fingers into her ass before taste testing and some foot job work showed her flexibility. From there, Asa proved to enjoy doing anal with Jules, going balls deep on his cock before again cleaning him off orally. She took him in her holes even longer until she slobbed his knob to completion, his spunk gracing her face as she luxuriously continued working his pole until his balls ran dry.
Scene Three: Asa Akira, next up in the black PVC outfit she wore on the left side of the front cover, then enjoyed working with Nacho Vidal, initially leading him on a leash attached to his pecker. She walked him into the living room before dropping down to blow him slowly, her devotion showing as she revved up the speed and continued to make eye contact with him. The streamers flew and she throated him until he ate her ass, Asa bending over to give him greater access to her ass and snatch while she stood over him and jerked him off. From there, he put her in a chair so her ass stuck out, his rod ramming her rapidly as she screamed out in pleasure. They fucked hard and he fingered her to a very juicy state, getting her off at least a few times before the vaginal and anal plowing continued. Asa was in her zone in such a way that Nacho has a way of eliciting from the ladies, their chemistry and energy such that it proved very powerful indeed. The couple pushed each other to the max here, his thick cock stretching her ass wide as she bounced on it, the gal riding him silly until he tossed off a wad of genetic juice all over her tongue and his hand (Asa cleaning him off to swallow it all).
Scene Four: Asa Akira, next up bathing in a large sunken tub, masturbated as the soap suds and water gave her a decidedly decadent look. The slow motion was used sparingly but it worked because of that fact, her perfectly toned body looking fantastic as she used the spray nozzle to masturbate with. She wrapped a towel around herself and went to the bedroom from there, walking in on kinky Steve Holmes, the guy dressed in women’s lingerie and masturbating with a pair of Asa’s panties. While this was a bit on the weird side to me, Asa seemed to get off on the kink; stripping down and teasing him a little as she put on a thong he handed her. The yellow piece of string rode up her ass crack and labia really well, her juicy slit already coating it with her juices as he used his hand to finger and rub her snatch to a state of readiness. She then reciprocated, sucking him off despite his transvestite nature and making ample use of the panties laying all around the bed. She then rubbed her pussy lips all over his cock but did not let him enter her just yet, Steve orally servicing her first as they both got some more head. The penetration positions from there were active and passionate, focusing largely on anal though she seemed to provide a full service experience, even tossing his salad as he beat his meat. They continued fucking and she licked his pantyhose covered feet, Steve soon rubbing out his entire wad of population pudding for her to tease with during some post coital head.
Scene Five: Asa Akira, last up in bright pink bikini undies, then put on a dance before giving a solo show and POV blowjob to Winston Burbank. She worked his rod actively and he aurally encouraged her to continue, her oral attentiveness broken only briefly when she wanted him to “put it in for just a second”. Her shaven snatch bouncing on his rod so actively was again a delight to appreciate, the taste testing and hand to gland combat enhancing the experience almost as much as her wonderfully solid eye contact throughout the scene. It ended when he came all over her face, his ball batter scooped up and swallowed to a degree.
Summary: Asa Akira: To The Limit by director Jules Jordan for Jules Jordan Video had great tease, solid casting of an established hotty, and just the right elements to earn a rating of Highly Recommended or better, depending on what you are into. Asa Akira is a world class piece of ass and it shows every time she steps in front of the camera, showcase efforts such as this one truly putting her on her best behavior to give her all as fans fill their respective spank banks. In short, Asa Akira: To The Limit was an all sex adventure starring the one and only Asa Akira as she fucked and sucked a plethora of penis, the gal sure to float the boat of any straight man yet again given the amount of fuck for the buck she engaged in here.
