Bubble-butt blonde beauty Annika Albrite gets her sweet cheeks penetrated for the first time in Anikka, the debut release from new studio Hard X, a division of O.L. Entertainment. The Mason-directed star showcase features Albrite in every scene.
Fans have been clamoring for Albrite’s pleasantly plump rump to be violated since she arrived on the scene last year. Albrite quickly rose to be one of the industry’s most in-demand performers and was recognized with four AVN Awards nominations for Best New Starlet, Best POV Sex Scene, Best Tease Performance and Best Threeway Sex Scene G/G/B.
On top of this release, the fall also brought another starring role for Albrite in OMG...It’s the Leaving Las Vegas XXX Parody, directed by Jordan Septo. That title, released by Juicy, came out in September.
For Albrite, it was always a matter of when, not if, she would give up her anal cherry. Having real-life paramour Mick Blue as her scene (and practice) partner made the decision a little easier, she told AVN.
“The experience was amazing,” Albrite said. “The passion is always high with Mick and I. And for something like this, I wanted it to be extremely comfortable with someone who knows everything about me.”
Albrite has worked for Mason before, including for a number of other performers’ star showcases. The pair expressed a desire to work together for a number of months, and when Mason moved from Elegant Angel to O.L. Entertainment, the timing was right for them to hook up.
“I’ve had offers in the past, but in just thinking it over, I wasn’t sure about the company, or the director, but with Mason, I knew it was going to be a great product; she puts out amazing stuff,” Albrite explained. “And since we’ve worked together before, I knew I could be comfortable and give her my best performance. I love the way she shoots. She knows how to push me.”
Albrite compared working for Mason to playing for a masterful basketball coach. In this scenario, based on her award-winning star showcases, Mason is Phil Jackson.
“Anikka put her heart and soul into this movie,” Mason said. “I’m so thankful for what she gave to this production. Her performances exceeded all expectations, including over 40 minutes of non-stop anal. I couldn’t believe it was her first! Anikka is both an intense sexual and emotional journey, which I hope the fans will love.”
Anikka features its namesake blonde beauty in five scenes: her aforementioned first boy/girl anal; a boy/girl/girl threesome with Riley Reid and Manuel Ferrara; and two boy/boy/girl threesomes, one with James Deen and Ramon Nomar, and the other, her first interracial tag-team. Every scene begins with a stylistic solo tease, and there’s also a full-length solo scene with toys.
Albrite said that she particularly enjoyed her scene with Reid because the two are best friends in real life.
“Working with Riley in my movie was something I really wanted to include her in, it was important to me because this movie meant a lot to me. We’re really good at ganging up on someone during sex so I needed to include her in this.”
Looking back, Albrite called her first anal scene with Blue the best work of her career.
“The only thing I was nervous about was doing it on-camera. The first time I ever had anal sex I was totally nervous, but once I got into it, I could relax and it was great. In this scene there wasn’t just one mood. At times it’s really rough and aggressive and other times it’s sweet and tender. It really was an emotional and physical journey in every sense.”
While Albrite’s ass is asstounding (pun intended), her showcase features much more than just her obvious assets (pun intended, again). As fans of Mason’s previous work know, the director always manages to coax genuine moments from her charges. While the sex is glamorous yet thoroughly hardcore, once the veil of sexuality is lifted, the viewer is treated to intimate reveals from the performer’s personal life so you get a true sense of who they are when the camera stops rolling.
For a movie who’s director calls it the best work of her career, when that director is Mason, you stand up and take notice. With Anikka, Mason continues to swing for the fences. Did you expect anything less?
The Anikka trailer is available at HardX.com; the DVD streeted earlier in October.
