Audio/Video Quality: Too Pretty For Porn was presented in anamorphic widescreen as credited to director Chanel Preston for James Deen Productions. The cinematography was credited to Hank Hoffman, Matt Holder and Eli Cross (though only Eli was displayed working a camera in the BTS footage that I saw), Danny Wylde handling editing and other post production chores. The flesh tones were accurate in a couple of scenes, the lighting varied according to the mood Chanel wanted to set, and the framing all combined to make this a decent looking title though, the bulk of compression artifacts observed when viewing it on a big screen television. AJ’s scene was shot completely in black and white while the lesbian scene was shot with almost no light, giving each scene a distinctive “look” to say the least. The 2.0 stereo audio provided sounded like a monaural experience even when I plugged in my headphones though, no distinctive separation of channels and the music mixed in aggressively to fairly weak vocals.

 

Body of Review: Chanel Preston is a popular porn performer who has begun to dabble in directing of late for James Deen Productions, her latest release a title called Too Pretty For Porn. I can’t lie to you, my belief has long been there is no such thing, the most physically attractive ladies in porn usually given a lot more latitude for being lousy performers as they rely heavily on looks alone so very often. I said as much when another company started a series by the same name over ten years ago, the dynamic not changing a whole lot since, the field of pretty ladies full of contract stars back then that did very little to earn their keep, most of them unable to compete against the hardcore hotties populating the industry now. That said, the show starred ladies including Chanel, AJ Applegate, Aria Alexander, Nikki Darling, and Alexa Tomas working with whatever guys could be found on the days the scenes were shot (apparently, it was a busy production day), the ladies meriting a nod from me as generally pretty enough to do porn even if some were much more skilled than others.

The company website described the movie like this: “Adult performer/director Chanel Preston stars and helms this erotic, stylishly shot outing with a group of gorgeous performers who some may say are Too Pretty for Porn. Filmed in a style reminiscent of a high fashion video, Preston, Aria Alexander, AJ Applegate, Nikki Darling and Alexa Thomas, show they may be beautiful, but they also love to fuck on camera! Sultry Aria is sexy with her striking eyes, beautiful hair and gorgeous face as she shows her passion for Toni Ribas when she takes him deep inside her for an orgasmic outdoor tryst! With a seductive atmosphere of an elegant purity the beautiful Chanel shows her style and grace in a sexual escapade that will leave her craving even more! Sexy AJ Applegate's obsession with her stately stud knows no bounds as she drops her inhibitions and panties for a chance to feel his cock buried deep inside her once again! Desire has no limits as gorgeous Nikki Darling and Alexa Thomas find passion in each other's supple bodies. It's sexy, it's hot. It's Too Pretty for Porn, a stylish, erotic journey into the passionate and refined world of beautiful women.”

The company press release described the movie like this: “Too Pretty for Porn” is an erotic journey into the passionate and refined world of beautiful women. Filmed in a style reminiscent of a high fashion video, “Too Pretty for Porn” shows Preston and five adult starlets in elegant settings sharing their bodies and lust in four passionate hardcore sex scenes. “Beautiful women enjoy fucking in an intense way,” said Preston. “Likewise, hardcore porn can be depicted in an erotic, stylish manner. This juxtaposition is what I wanted to accomplish with ‘Too Pretty for Porn.’” The cast includes Chanel Preston, AJ Applegate, Alexa Thomas, Aria Alexander, Michael Vegas, Moe Johnson, Nikki Darling, and Toni Ribas. Clocking in at 2 hours and 9 minutes of hardcore sex, “Too Pretty for Porn” also features more than 35 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage. The movie opens on sultry Aria with her striking eyes, beautiful hair, and gorgeous face. Aria shows her passion for Toni, as she takes him deep inside her for an orgasmic outdoor tryst! Scene two’s seductive atmosphere perfectly compliments beautiful Chanel, as she intertwines herself with Michael in a sexually fulfilling masterpiece. Sexy AJ is next, as her obsession with her stately stud Moe knows no bounds when she drops her inhibitions and panties for a chance to feel her man inside her once again! Nikki and Alexa follow, as they show their desire has no limits and they find passion in each other’s supple bodies. Preston’s newest directorial effort comes after helming and starring in the highly popular, fetish-themed “Smoke,” which was released on DVD in April from James Deen Productions. “Chanel is firmly establishing herself as one of the up-and-coming directors with ‘Too Pretty for Porn,’” said James Deen Productions COO Shannon Kaehny. “Her unique style and ability to communicate her vision to her performers and production team is one of the reasons her movies have become so popular. Fans will definitely have a new favorite when they see this movie!” Known for her striking looks and sexual talents, the statuesque brunette is one of the industry’s most accomplished stars, receiving a number of awards from NightMoves, AVN, XRCO, and XBIZ. Preston has been a force in the industry since her arrival into adult entertainment in 2010. She hosted the 31st AVN Awards Show in 2014, where she received the award for Most Outrageous Sex Scene. Besides her recent movie directing debut, Preston’s previous experience directing and producing comes from her popular web series, “Naked with Chanel”, which launched last year. In the series, Preston helps viewers shed their inhibitions and negative attitudes about sex in order to better understand themselves and others.” Heres a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

 

 

Scene One: Aria Alexander, the sexy little Houstonian featured on the front cover, was up first, the newcomer allowed to romp around a field in her flowing white dress before joining Toni Ribas on a conveniently placed bed in the middle of nowhere. Her red boots seemed out of place but Toni leaned over to kiss her as she caressed the growing bulge in his pants, his hand wrapping around her neck to choke her before roaming around her boobs and other places to stimulate her. He let her dress slip off a nipple, the itty bitty tits all natural and her milky white skin almost glowing in the field, his hand dipping to her crotch where a few wisps of pubic hair were aligned in the shape of a light landing strip. He diddled her with increasing speed until she reciprocated with a blowjob, applying some hand to gland stroking before slobbing his knob to the hilt, the modest member nothing like Moe’s later on in the movie. The hummer led to his gobbling her gash, the turgid rod slipped inside of her passive pussy to bang her in a variety of positions, the gal much better on top when it came to being an active rider. She blew him from there and drained his dragon of sperm with more fucking, Toni having used his hand to get her juices freely flowing first so he could savor them. It ended when he nutted on her crotch for her to taste, the camera fading all too quickly.

 

 

Scene Two: Nikki Darling, a skinny black gal with a slightly exotic look in her black lingerie, and Spanish babe Alexa Tomas, dressed similarly in hers, were up next together in a lesbian scene that included a little bit of bubble blowing and playful chasing outside before they knelt across from one another in a poorly lit room on the wooden floor. There was a lot of slow motion here and I’m sure a few of you will consider the endeavor erotic, the ladies ever so slowly getting frisky as their light caresses became more and more sensual. They gobbled gash and ate ass but it was a decidedly basic scene with all the light hitting them dead on for a near paparazzi look.

 

 

Scene Three: AJ Applegate, a blond hotty with brilliant eyes and an amazing ass, was up next in a scene shot completely in black and white with a lot of edit points in the tease to the minimalist music. Her nipples were erect and her crotch showed she had a bald beaver, the cutie paired up with black male Moe Johnson. The large bed was very basic and her lingerie did little to cover her up, AJ rubbing one out as Moe crawled over to her to show the stark contrast in their flesh tones (particularly due to the lack of color). She savored his turgid rod well enough with a hand assisted hummer, the initial camera angle not showing enough of her delightful ass or her oral skills that led to them kissing. The vaginal plowing led to her pissing (or “squirting” if you like), coating both of them with her fluids before she went back to sucking the top inch of his rod while stroking the shaft, AJ mounting him for additional positions though both of them gave more head until she eventually milked his balls dry of semen in doggy to coat her curvy ass as best he could with the limited amount of manly fluids he had to offer.

 

 

Scene Four: Chanel Preston, the sexy director herself, was up last as she applied some red lipstick before slipping into her sheer black bikini undies. The scene used a lot of photographic effects like reversing motion, the montage including some footage of her on James’ free piano before she seemed to seduce moper Michael Vegas on a nearby ottoman. They kissed and pawed each other, his hand stimulating her crotch before he went down on her, Chanel reciprocating with some full service head that included tossing his salad, some prostate massage included as things carried onward (her tongue, finger, and then what appeared to be a vibrator inserted to get him off as she blew him). Chanel easily throated the guy and he dove into her ass orally like he was infatuated, his cock getting to sample both her ass and pussy between their oral endeavors. It ended with the prostate massage pushing him over the limit, his love of having his ass stretched open wide too much for him to continue experiencing before blowing his load all over himself, Chanel licking some of it up before the credits rolled.

Summary: Too Pretty For Porn by director Chanel Preston for James Deen Productions continued her practice of using interesting visuals from previous works to capture the ladies in a fairly artistic manner, the lack of a gimmick like last time actually helping it stand out a little more for me despite limitations in casting to earn a rating of Rent It or better, feel free to adjust the rating to your personal tastes for the ladies involved. My favorites here were easily AJ Applegate and Chanel Preston but Nikki Darling, Aria Alexander, and Alexa Tomas were not bad either, the mopes a varied lot as well. In short, Too Pretty For Porn is probably best suited for couples and those new to porn that will have less to compare it with, the movie’s scenes on the bland side so check it out and let me know what you think of it.
