Extras: The best extra was a 41:34 minute bonus scene between James and Janice Griffith, the resolution on the lower end compared to the movie itself, the energy between them pretty decent. They began in the car with lots of talking before moving into the fairly barren apartment on a bed, the gal ending the encounter with a sweet blowjob after plenty of penetrative sex. There was also a company trailer, filmographies, a cast list, website links, photogalleries for the scenes, and movie trailers but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: James Deen’s Sex Tapes: James’ House was presented in anamorphic widescreen as directed by James Deen for Evil Angel. This time James took care of handling the camera himself, taking a page from Manuel Ferrara’s “Raw” series in terms of the POV, though he was joined by Mike Quasar to edit the production. The results varied substantially but it did add some energy to the proceedings, the problems with lighting, framing, and other visual elements overridden by the sheer strength of the encounters (real or faked, who cares?). The only point of contention was that the company watermark seemed more intrusive in the lower right hand corner when low lighting was an issue. The aural components were on the basic side too, the vocals easily heard in most cases, but also the ambient noises indicative of having sex in apartments or homes not designed as studios.
Body of Review: James Deen has garnered some success as a director over the years, his latest works at Evil Angel a far cry from the “alt-porn” humor and off the beaten track style he was known for. His latest flick making it my way is called James Deen’s Sex Tapes: James’ House, the man instilling a degree of intimacy courtesy of his lack of a crew while shooting a variety of sexy ladies wanting to try him out. I was all in once I saw curvy Jasmine Tame as a cast member, the attractive blond a favorite of mine before she went off to meet fans from coast to coast instead of doing porn, and hotty Anikka Albrite, another blond many of us adore, who is currently quite popular.
The company website described the movie like this: “Handsome porn stud James Deen has become a crossover hit with mainstream ladies that don't even watch porn. But the adult industry's savvy girls know that the real action is over at this creative young director's home, where they can let their inner freak go wild. In "James Deen's Sex Tapes: James' House," six insatiable sluts visit his L.A. estate and treat his famous cock to their special talents. Shot on the fly without any elaborate sets or special lighting, this is real-life eroticism - no acting allowed. Super-sexy blonde Jasmine Tame visits James, and as soon as he gets her alone, the petite and busty cutie is at his mercy. Jasmine slurps his rock-hard cock and gets on all fours for a passionate doggie-style fucking. Eighteen-year-old brunette Janice Griffith is nervous about her first porn shoot. The director soothes her pre-scene jitters by sodomizing her, and by the time co-star Toni Ribas shows up, Janice is ready for some fierce throat fucking and a double-penetration. Auburn-haired cutie Hope has a surprise under her coat - she drops it to reveal an all-natural body in only a lacy bra and panties. Hope rides James' shaft in every position. Pierced, tattooed tart Scarlett Pain, blonde supermodel slut Anikka Albrite and tiny temptress Lexi Love each enjoy memorable visits. The two-disc DVD includes a bonus one-on-one scene with the fresh Ms. Griffith. As his private "Sex Tapes" reveal, there's always room for raw lust when James Deen is in the house!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at times for those still interested:
Scene One: Jasmine Tame, an attractive blond with pretty eyes and a smoking hot ass, was up first in bed with James Deen, the couple having worked together numerous times when she was actively working in the industry. The idea of the scene was that he set a stationary camera up in a hidden location to catch the two in bed, a sleazy “sex tape” approach that no one I know believes was authentic here. They kissed and she soon wrapped her lovely lips around his turgid pecker to make it wet, the gal throating him almost to the bone as she gingerly massaged his balls. The oral and vaginal sex continued with some degree of chemistry between the couple until the picture reverted to a POV standard where she was slobbing his knob, James glazing her face with genetic juice as the lovely lady swallowed his baby batter while claiming every drop was hers.
Scene Two: Janice Griffith, the lean gal featured on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up next in the expansive living room taking on Toni Ribas and James Deen in what he billed as her first official porno. She wore a loose top and tight black pants, the shy gal showing a little cleavage as the director interviewed her (once he set the camera down). Why they waited for Toni, they got her undressed to her bra and had her aggressively blowing James, the rest of their attire cast aside as they felt each other up and she continued to prove her oral skills. She was not a particularly active vaginal rider but she did seem to appreciate James’ cock pounding into her bald beaver, the man surprisingly moving it into her ass as she diddled her clitoris (though he was mostly putting his head in alone without the bulk of his shaft). This action was interrupted by some discussion of giant gaping assholes, James soon going back to play with her as he roughed her up much more like his usual material than in the first part of the scene. He gobbled her gash and ass after banging her in both holes, Janice on her stomach to get off to his ministrations. She blew him and licked his balls from there, Toni knocking on the door causing her to run to let him in, the new couple going into “sex mode” as James manned the camera much more actively. She adored Toni and the two made out, felt each other up, and whispered to each other as she helped him grow ever harder while she diddled her bald beaver for him on the white couch. Toni took to teasing her with his cock initially but she sucked him with vigor, James feeling left out so he joined in too (not to suck cock but to allow her two to choose from). Janice alternated between them orally and they soon banged not only her mouth but her pussy and ass, even giving her a double penetration she wished for. They then continued to use her as they saw fit until she focused on Toni, the man depositing his wealth of population pudding to her waiting mug, the ball batter massaged onto her face but not readily swallowed.
Scene Three: Hope Howell, a very cute young lady who was no stranger to James Deen, was let into the house wearing a lengthy trench coat. She was amazed that his new house had a bar and he gave her the quick tour before she brought up the topic of surprises. This led to her removing the coat to show she was only wearing skimpy pink bikini undies, asking him not only to fuck her but to leave the camera on as he readily accepted her terms of engagement. The camera was set down and she removed her panties, James walking over to kiss and finger her as she pried his pants open to get to his cock. She gave him some brief head before he started vaginally nailing her, James providing the cutie with some oral pleasure as well. They moved into a POV hummer and set the camera down closer next, the couple actively riding each other as she finished him off with a blowjob that drained his dragon of spunk with relative ease.
Scene Four: Scarlett Pain, another young fuck bunny friend of James Deen, was up next as he followed her to the car so she could give him a great ass shot as she gathered up some of her smoking paraphernalia so she could “take her medicine” in the form of smoking pot. Whatever her ailment, the self prescribed medication seemed to make her more enthusiastic to work with James, her black and blue print dress covered by a loose jacket. Her boobs were hanging out and she offered the cold director the jacket since he didn’t want her smoking in the house, his decision to get off drugs apparently the total opposite of his philosophy. They went inside the house after that and she took off her jacket to show her white shorts, James interviewing her about her tits with pierced nipples, the interview eventually giving way to her inhaling his turgid pecker with some hand to gland friction added in. She had a lot of colorful arm tattoos and when her mouth wasn’t full, she carried on the discussion a bit more, the rainbow panties tossed aside so she could mount the cock she worked so hard to get erect. The lighting was mediocre here so he set the camera down which worked much better, the gal actively riding him, the lady ditching the rest of her attire to give her fleshy ass some time to be admired. More active vaginal riding led him to beat off onto her bald crotch, his splooge tasted by the laughing young lady as she fed herself the new source of protein, claiming his spew was sweet.
Scene Five: Anikka Albrite, the fabulously popular blond seen slightly on the front cover (upper left corner in black and white), was up next chilling on the couch watching television with James Deen. Both had bare feet after he removed his footwear, James extolling his rules of what counts as a drink for his diet (pretty funny stuff). He poured them some wine and kissed, their discussion allowing both of them some exposition time while ever so slowly becoming more physically comfortable with each other. She climbed into his lap and revealed a complete lack of panties covering her juicy ass, Anikka mounting him as his hands warmed her up and her hand pulling him inside of her. She used her mouth, hands, and eyes in unison to excite him with a great hummer, the couple soon vaginally fucking as actively as any of the other scenes with each giving the other some head. He ate her ass and both of them fingered it, more vaginal leading to him plastering her ass crack with his semen, Anikka still posing in doggy as she blew him clean to end the first disc.
Scene Six: Lexi Love, another past favorite of mine that has moved onto bigger and better things, was up next as the sole scene on the second disc (other than the aforementioned bonus scene), in a tryst with James Deen. He set the camera out of sight and invited Lexi into the house, pinning her against the door frame as he ate her while she was bent over. Lexi than sucked him off while maintaining excellent eye contact, the couple kissing and caressing each other repeatedly while fucking in a standing doggy. They then moved over to the red couch where the oral and penetrative sex continued, her skilled talents always welcomed as she kept him going. They sucked and fucked some more before she realized they were being recorded by the hidden camera, Lexi moving them over closer to the camera to make sure the tryst was captured as well as possible. She asked him if he wanted to cum on her face or on her ass but he tossed off to her face, Lexi opening wide to receive his semen for swallowing.
Summary: James Deen’s Sex Tapes: James’ House by director James Deen for Evil Angel seemed like a cross between trying to establish a set formula (ala “Raw”) and footage left over from more personalized endeavors. As such, the quality of the material varied way more than I cared for yet I will give the guy credit where it was due in how he selected a cast of ladies willing to be roughed up by the diminutive man, the inclusion of rough sex almost a trademark for his personal dynamic. I rated this as Highly Recommended for a broader, more generalized audience because it was a good alternative to the overly used formulas the industry seems to enjoy so much, the lack of predictability enhancing the value at times just as the technical values sometimes kept a scene off to the side or displayed in less than optimal ways. If you are a fan of ladies such as Lexi Love, Anikka Albrite, or Scarlett Pain, this will be well worth picking up for them alone, the others adding some value too. In short, James Deen’s Sex Tapes: James’ House offered up a lot of fuck for the buck so give it a look if you in the market for something just different enough to merit pause.
