Overview: With the ever-increasing popularity of model audition and casting pornography, numerous companies have been branching off to do their own rendition on "recruiting" young women in for an X-rated audition. PornPros is one of the more recent and their new compilation disc, The Audition, showcases highlights from 2014 girls, including some recognizable faces that have blossomed into starlets just a few years later.

Scene 1: Adrian Maya and unnamed male performer

Eighteen year old Adrian Maya has dreamed of getting into the porn industry since she was in high school, and shortly after her eighteenth birthday, she has capitalized on that dream by putting it into motion. She's enthusiastic, which hides her admitted nervousness quite well, and we get acquainted with PornPros' two-camera, POV-heavy setup.

What precedes the inevitable fornication between Adrian and our interviewer is a fairly lengthy, fifteen minute interview, which actually provides substantial and intriguing information about Adrian. She was heavily inspired by Alexis Texas and possesses the rare ambition for an aspiring porn star of making it big, yet respecting the grind and hustle of the industry. "Knowing someone is listening to you because they want you to please them is so hot," she says on dom/fem porn, something she hopes to ease her way into, taking it past her private life.

After Adrian disrobes, she has an attractive masturbation session aided by a very personal angle that has the camera lens filled by her crotch despite positioned just a smidgen upwards to few her torso and face for an impressive low-angle shot. Adrian's blowjob technique then proves to be slow and passionate, with penetration - aided by splitscreen editing that shows Adrian's facial expressions in addition to the ex - to follow.

On her back on the supporting table, a POV shot gives us a full look at her tight body. Adrian has all the hallmarks of a barely legal teen, including breaking out into a full tizzy of moaning when our man softly rubs her vagina as she's penetrating. She rides wildly in missionary, grabbing her butt for more intense pounding, and our man thanks her with a load on her face. Adrian's excitement and appreciation for the industry will only lead to a prosperous career, one can hope. 3.5/5 stars.

Scene 2: Alli Rae and unnamed male performer

-- sponsored by --

Nineteen year old covergirl Alli Rae makes a damn good impression of herself on The Audition by showing off her quick-witted intellect just as well as she does her alluring body. Educated, fun-loving, and nothing shy of spirited, she talks to her interviewer like they're out to lunch moreso than he's got the upper-hand and the power to give her a career in the adult industry. She tells him how it's more important to be smart than pretty, in addition to letting the world know she's an avid stargazer and reader bred from a sleepy Pennsylvanian farm town. She's an absolute joy to hear from; I would've been keen on a forty minute, fully clothed interview.

But that's not what we're here for, however, and after about fifteen minutes, Alli disrobes and we get a better look at her body. She nervously masturbates as the camera stares her directly in her shaven snatch. She also acknowledges early on that blowjobs are just as much about emotion and eye contact as they are quality lip and mouth service. She gives one of the most memorable amateur blowjobs in recent memory, and puts the deepthroat skills to test after bragging about them in her interview.

She delivers high-pitched moans and a divine prettiness when she's bent over, and furthermore as she's gliding her hips rather roughly in missionary. Her ass fills the screen as she's fingered by our man of the hour, prompting a couple occasions of squirting, and her petite ass reddens as she's spanked more than a few time. She ends her penetration session by surprising him with a reverse cowgirl where she, yet again, squirts almost instantly with terrific energy to boot.

She eagerly awaits her load, blue eyes sparkling, mouth widening, as she looks up and cum glazes her face. Alli is truly a stunning woman, committed and appreciative of her opportunity and, fingers crossed, the next prolific face gracing more DVD covers than just ones boasting casting auditions. 4/5 stars.

Scene 3: Megan Rain and unnamed male performer

To reiterate, The Audition features scenes from 2014, which may seem like an odd, dated compilation to follow suit three years later. However, by doing this, it adds a "then and now" aspect to this material to see how many, if any, of these girls have become mainstream porn stars. Arguably the most familiar and recognizable soul on this disc is Megan Rain, and we harken back three years to see when she was just a confident, outspoken eighteen year old before becoming a sizable name working for Blacked, HardX, and more.

It's a little surprising to see Megan so young and so new to the game, and it serves as a reminder for how quickly a woman can take off. She reveals her trademark flexibility's source is from years of doing martial arts, ballet, and gymnastics throughout school, and tells of her desire to leave her "boring," touristy hometown of Palm Springs in pursuit of success via the porn industry. There's a meaningful heart-to-heart that takes place between her and the interview for nearly twenty minutes before the clothes come off, which is a nice look at the Megan then and how little she's strayed from her roots in the present day.

An inexperienced masturbator, Megan nonetheless puts on a great show for the audience in a solo, and showcases even better cocksucking, deepthroating, and rimjobbing skills, most shockingly, showing a desire to letting loose early and being all she can be in just a few moments. Megan is even more eager to jump right into sex, where she nods affectionately at her interviewer's desire to cycle through most of the aforementioned positions to great effect. The high saturation in the picture quality brings out a pearly, angelic quality to Megan's skin-tone, and adds to moments where she gallops her hips in missionary.

Finally, it's almost too cute to see how excited she is to have cum on her face, wolfing down her man's dick in anticipation before accepting a great reward - a popshot with stunning velocity. Highly committed, undeniably enthusiastic, and pretty on a goddess-level. watching Megan's audition scene in 2017 leaves no wonder as to why she's a household name today. 4/5 stars.

Scene 4: Maddy Rose and unnamed male performer

After two strong scenes on two very different levels, The Audition grinds to a halt with this shallow, slow-moving conclusion. Mississippi-born Maddy Rose is a lanky girl next door type of girl, very pretty in a natural way, boasting minimum makeup and a cute slip-up referring to rapper Young Jeezy as "Lil Jeezy" at one point. She details life in a small, one-stoplight-town, most of which is censored, understandably so, and she proves herself to be quieter than the other girls nubiles on this disc.

The scene starts to unravel right from the solo, where Maddy engages in a completely sterile masturbation session and follows it up with even more pedestrian blowjob skills. Admitting right from the start she has never watched porn and doesn't know much about the industry, Maddy shows it by having no discernible sexual energy and a very monotone personality. Her looks are a bit unique, her confidence in her interview nice, but her on-camera personality is shy and undeveloped, and before you say it's because a lack of experience, I don't see Adrian Maya or Megan Rain having a huge body of work prior to 2014.

Maddy clearly has fun being bent over, and picks up a little bit of enthusiasm and personality during sex, but this glacially paced scene is oddly inert once the sex begins. What was a moderately compelling interview descended into lukewarm, vanilla sex not aided by a lack of character or any particular noteworthy positions or charisma. Maddy Rose has since go on to do a wide variety of taboo work, and I'd certainly watch another disc with her talents sooner rather than later. But this is a surprisingly flaccid debut with little to offer; a rare miss even by casting porn standards, which ordinarily have one standout even if they're subpar. 1.5/5 stars.

Final Thoughts

Speaking entirely from personal opinion, casting porn is not necessarily a genre I want to commit to on a regular basis. It's more of a "change of pace" genre of pornography, and as you can probably tell, it's one I value for the interviews and revelations from porn star hopefuls moreso than the vanilla sex itself. The Audition lacks some of the seediness present in the ubiquitous "Backroom Casting Couch" and even the mean-spiritedness of some others that need not be named, and it sometimes dazzles with very ambient cinematography.

But where The Audition really shines is in its cast of mostly champions, particularly in Alli Rae and Megan Rain, who showcase a lot to where you can't believe they wouldn't become stars in such a difficult industry. The tremendously disappointing closer and some lengthier-than-necessary positions aside, PornPros' attempt at casting pornography is interesting and competently entertaining.
