Audio/Video Quality: Playing With Myself was a selection of ten scenes shot for the internet in anamorphic widescreen to be distributed on DVD by Pure Play Media that originally came from Aura Productions. The lighting was generally even in the multitude of settings and the camera work often just stayed static in one place as the gal went at it, the resolution on the low end in most cases with bit rates hovering in the mid 4.1 Mbps area when spot checked. If there was much editing, I didn’t notice, a few abrupt angle changes about all she wrote here, the flesh tones fairly accurate as the ladies gave decent solo performances. The aural components of the scenes did not vary much either, the vocals easily heard in most cases if hollow in their execution, some moaning and dirty talk included with minimal music to get in the way of your enjoyment.
Body of Review: Pure Play Media has become one of the biggest distributors of porn for a multitude of production companies that don’t want to deal with all the headaches now that physical media like DVD has become just one more revenue stream. Today’s title from them was courtesy of Aura Productions and called Playing With Myself, a selection of ten porn performers who engaged in some solo masturbation scenes without any help from a partner. The scenes all appeared to be dedicated solo scenes too, not merely clipped from a longer scene as I have seen in the past, some of the hotties including cover gal Shyla Stylez, London Keyes, Jayden Jaymes, and others worth a look. While this is likely to be overlooked by many folks, some fussing at me for “wasting time” by “covering smaller companies”, I thought it worth checking out based on the list of ladies alone, these scenes short and clearly taken some time ago. There wasn’t a lot of variation in the action so my verbiage below will be brief but you could do far worse than this one in my opinion, especially if you like seeing ladies get themselves off. The back cover described the movie like this: “The hottest women in porn are all alone and are ready to put on a special show for you! Using fingers and toys, these girls know all the right spots to touch, tease and rub to get themselves - and you - off! It's a pussy stuffing, clit rubbing sextravaganza!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Scarlett Pain, a tattooed lady taking a piss on a toilet before rubbing one out, was up first in a black crop top as the redhead used a douche to clean herself out.
Scene Two: Kelly Surfer, a blond cutie stuffing her face on a set by director Ivan, was up next as her peers walked about the room until she set the camera down in the side room where all her clothes were kept, using a wand vibrator to get her bald beaver juicy.
Scene Three: Tabitha James, a blond wearing glasses and some loose green shirt over her black bra, then started playing with her tiny boobs as she peeled her clothing off in the bathroom, moving to the bed of the motel room where she only had a simpy pair of panties on as she used a vibrator to masturbate.
Scene Four: Shyla Stylez, the wonderfully curvy blond bomdshell featured alone on the front cover, was up next at a sex shop of sorts in her pink and black bikini undies as music played in the background. She put on a stripper kind of tease show by the changing rooms and demonstrated why she earned the cover while playing with a glitter dildo in her shaven snatch.
Scene Five: Natasha Nice, a cute gal with dark hair, was then up in front of a Christmas tree on a clear plastic inflatable chair as she remembered some scenes she was in (clips displayed to facilitate the solo portion), to provide spank bank fodder for her solo scene. She was bald with panties on, tasting and jamming the dildo as far inside of her as possible while rubbing herself with her other hand.
Scene Six: Annie Cruz, a curvy little Asian gal in a red bikini top and slutty blue jean booty skirt, entered a house while holding a camera, giving a solo show in a house with an assortment of cheap, mismatched furniture. She hiked her skirt up over her hairy twat and rubbed one out, tasting herself and using a clear plastic or glass toy around the room.
Scene Seven: Audrey Bitoni, a curvy brunette with big implants and a sweet ass, was up next in a big bed wearing only fishnet stockings and black hooker shoes as she rubbed her shaven pussy.
Scene Eight: Briana Blair, a cute blond with pretty eyes, was up next as she toured the property of a porn shoot while taking a break to masturbate out by the pool in a shaded area as a tribute to her fans. She set the camera down and climbed onto a plastic chair, her print bikini cast aside to show her tits and then cooch, a lot more boob play included than the other scenes before she went to her snatch with a landing strip above it.
Scene Nine: London Keyes, wearing white shoes and a sexy red outfit that rode up her juicy ass, was up next in a largely white room with a checkerboard floor as she shook her ass and other body parts quietly. This was when she was going through a thicker phase and looking especially tasty in my opinion, the gal using a basic pink vibrator on her pussy while leaving her lingerie on her frame. There was a little anal play too, very little, and a tiny patch of pubes for those who care, the gal looking like a million bucks throughout the scene.
Scene Ten: Jayden Jaymes, a curvy babe with an incredible ass, was up last as she poured bright blue paint on her body, shaking her tits and ass while doing so and wearing a silly blue wig. Music played her and she added a different shade to the liquid latex before peeling it off, her shaven slit glistening before the music ended and she displayed some BTS where she spoke to a familiar voice off camera.
Summary: Playing With Myself by the uncredited directors of Aura Productions to be distributed by Pure Play Media was worth a Rent It to me, some of the ladies really looking like they were getting off for real and the others putting on a fairly decent showing themselves. The technical qualities were not always the best and the minimal extras added did little to make me think I’d pay top dollar but for two hours of strokable fun with some modest degree of replay value with ladies like Shyla Stylez, London Keyes, and Jayden Jaymes certainly made Playing With Myself worth checking out, the varied scenery more diverse than you will find at some of the largest companies these days.
