Solid raincoater material.
Swallow My Pride has been garnering four "A" reviews with consistency, but sometimes it becomes necessary to break with tradition. It's certainly not because the action is any less vigorous, the d.p.'s less frequent, the roundelay of multiple circle-jerks-to-the-mouth less torrential or the extra "director's privilege poke" less amusing. These crowd-pleasing elements are just as plentiful as ever.
It just so happens that we believe a fully successful porno portrays female satisfaction as equal to or greater than that of the stud(s). None of the girls [herein] can be faulted for accepting every vein-throbbing inch of what their partners dish out. In fact, there's no denying that some of 'em (like Jasmyn and Persia) really enjoy their work - but at some point, Swallow My Pride becomes overwhelmed with buckets of glutinous evidence instead of mutual pleasure.
Technically, the fact that many of the male faces are anonymously framed out doesn't bother us so much as it does create havoc when attempting to issue proper credit. However, the inevitable closeups of cum-soaked female faces cannot help but reveal certain skin conditions that less clinical exposure tends to hide.
