Welcome to another installment of Homegrown Select's award-winning teen amateur series. What makes this series such a big seller is that many of these hot barely legal teens are experimenting with on-camera sex for the very first time. Sometimes, the girls will move on to making more porn, but more often than not, this is the only place you will ever see these girls on tape. This is what teen amateur is really all about!
Yikes. Two stinkers in a row from the one of the best-selling amateur lines on the market and one that has won numerous AVN Awards. No doubt exists that these are definitely amateur scenes. But in 2010, applying even the minimal standards for amateur video, halfway decent quality and camerawork that doesn’t shift or shake, is a must. The closing scene, a three-way with Gio, Bambi and Max, looks like it was shot with the grainiest initial camcorders that hit the market in the early '80s. Authentic as it may seem, it is unwatchable.
The cutest girl of the bunch, an 18-year-old brunette named October Darling wearing glasses, masturbates and shoots the first blowjob for her new website, interestingly shot with the camera on the floor for a upwards view, but with shaky camerawork otherwise. The most professional scene, with 18-year-old blonde Alyssa Austin and Jeremy Steele, is a by-the-numbers, mattress-on-the-floor yawner. And the less said about Asian newcomer Lyka, who exerts no sexual energy in a very poorly shot scene, the better.
Cherries is still a great brand, but Homegrown needs to pick better fruit for its releases or they will kill the harvest.
