There are few numbers more important to the porn industry than 69. The golden numeral, when it’s associated with a title, both indicates that the series has been around for a hell of a long time, and also (ideally) pays homage to the oft-loved sexual position. So when Hustler’s seminal young girl line, Barely Legal, hit the ole’ seisenta y nueve, director Erica McLean had to pull out all of the stops.
McLean’s sexy scenarios are still as fresh as when she and late husband Clive McLean commandeered the series in the ’80s; and when you’re turning 69, originality is a difficult thing to achieve. The narration, still done by McLean herself, is slick, and the girls are as spry as ever.
Spunky blondes Jana Foxy and April Aubrey kick things off with a mountainside picnic that soon turns into an ‘I’ll show you mine if you show me yours’ lesbian exploration. Sexual toys are revealed as the scene drives to a high note with the help of that fabled position.
The gorgeous Rebeca Linares plays a sex-obsessed secretary that can’t seem to do her job without touching herself. Lee Stone, her boss, is forced to have a little talk with her. The reprimanding soon turns into a standing 69 and a desktop anal screw, the title’s hottest tryst.
Latina flower Ranae Cruz is painting a mural of the Virgin Guadalupe in a scene that morphs into a virtual clusterfuck of symbolism and white, cotton panties. Cruz gives an amazing blowjob and then gets a sidesaddle screwing that has both her and Jeremy Holmes screaming in unison.
Nubian newbie Misty Stone has the quality of her pussy checked by Derrick Pierce’s sizable staff in a scene aptly titled "Quality Control." Judging from the sex, I think she passed.
