The Short Story

Initial Reaction: Itís okay.

The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are okay. The audio isnít bad, but it isnít good either. Itís fairly clear, but is often a bit muddy and has many minor balance issues. The video is much the same way. Itís presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, and the lighting is a bit low. Itís also has some noticeable grain that gives the movie a blurry appearance. Neither the audio nor the video impressed me here.
Music: The music is very soft, both in style and balance.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu lets you choose between the movie, the virtual sex, and trailers. If you choose the movie, youíre also given options for other extras and a chapter menu. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a still of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureAsian Virtual 1 features Ellen Sin. Ellenís a very cute Oriental girl with a nicely natural body. You can choose between playing with her in a virtual sex simulation and watching her in action, and thereís also a scene with another girl.
|Scene 1 - An uncredited girl and guy|
When a very cute Oriental with a large tattoo around her right wrist brings her man home, she briefly introduces him to her roommate Ellen, whoís busy exercising in the living room, before taking him to the bedroom. She kisses him and gives him a little strip tease in front of a mirrored wall of doors. He caresses her a little before letting her head off to the shower, and joins her a few moments later. Her man plays with her a little before she drops down to mouth his manhood. Sheís rewarded with a fuck from behind before they head back to the bedroom. They kiss and fondle each other while completely dry and even mix in a bit more oral action with Her taking a couple fingers in the can. She moves up to ride her partner in both cowgirls before getting spooned. They finally finish things up with a bit of missionary work and The chick taking a nice pop on her stomach.
This is an okay scene. The chick gets into the scene pretty well as it gets going, but it takes forever to really get going. It took almost twenty minutes to get to the fucking on the bed, and it took almost as long to get a decent feeling of chemistry and passion. The scene was further hurt by the editing, which was very choppy and rarely showed any position changes. My head was bobbing like Ray Charles by the time the scene got going, and although She seemed to get into the fucking nicely, it was almost too little too late. This is an okay scene that had the potential to be much better.
|Scene 2 - Ellen Sin and an uncredited guy|
Ellen starts out the second scene wearing a white negligee and lying back on a couch. She softly diddles herself, and gets herself worked up enough that she wakes up the guy who was banging her roommate. After he gets a glass of water and they chat a little, he watches a little TV while she reads a magazine. He canít help but notice that Ellen has a little nip showing, and after a bit moves his hand over to caress her leg. They kiss and fondle each other, with the guy taking plenty of time to play with Ellenís nearly trimmed pussy. She rewards him with a little cocksucking before letting him spoon her pussy. She rolls on top for a reverse cowgirl ride and then lays back on the couch for a little missionary work. They keep it going doggie style throughout the apartment before Ellen sucks and strokes the guy onto her tits. Afterwards, the guy climbs back into bed with Ellenís roommate and snuggles up with a smile.
This scene is a little better. The pace is extremely slow once again, and takes over fifteen minutes before it even gets to the cocksucking. Thankfully, this scene works a little better due to a nice masturbation sequence and a playful start on the couch. Ellenís definitely a looker and does a very nice job through the sex. This isnít a great scene, but itís definitely above average.
|Scene 3 - Virtual Sex with Ellen Sin|
The virtual sex option lets you have a few choices in three different areas. For foreplay, Ellen starts out giving a little dance and tease. Sheíll also let you play with her tits, work her finger over with your fingers or a vibe, and will climb on top to show off her ass while you play with her pussy. For oral, sheíll suck your cock, but never asks for anything in return. Sexually, you have the choice between fucking her missionary style, doggie style, or regular or reverse cowgirl. Finally, you can pop whenever you want.
The virtual aspect is extremely basic. Each segment only gives you a minute, and the looping is extremely noticeable. The entire sequence is shot POV without the option for alternate angles, moods, or any of the other little niceties that you might have come to expect from the virtual sex releases from other companies. The only thing thatís what you might hope for is the pop shot, which is real. Unfortunately, thereís also only one popshot sequence for the entire virtual experience. Ellen does a nice job for the length of the segments, but overall the virtual aspect is a big letdown.
Asian Virtual 1: Ellen Sin is a bit of a letdown. On one hand, it shows some nice care. I like how FantaDream included two other scenes in a little storyline rather than just including the virtual sex. I also like that Ellen put some nice effort into both her sex scene and the virtual sex. Sheís a hot girl, and I wouldnít mind seeing more of her in the future. Unfortunately, most everything else fell short in the DVD. Although the two scenes in the setup are a nice extra, it would have been much nicer if they would have both featured Ellen. Some credits would have also been nice, not just because I think itís only fair to give credit where itís due but also because Iím sure that some people will want to see more from the talent here and as is, they havenít a clue where to start. The editing for the scenes was a bit rough, and the overall technical aspects held the scenes back as well. Finally thereís the virtual sex aspect of the release. Although this is the main draw for the release, it feels almost like an extra and shows very little effort. Asian Virtual 1 has a few nice ideas, but the overall release feels a little sloppy.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Asian Virtual 2, Asian Virtual 3, and Asian Virtual 4. The photo gallery lasts two minutes with roughly five seconds per fairly poor looking screen capture. Thereís also website information.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interracial, anal (finger), masturbation, virtual sex, tease, and toys
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of the Asian Virtual titles can be found online for between about $13 and $26 with a few stores offering them at the low end. Rent this one first. It has some nice ideas, but the scenes are overly drawn out and the virtual sex lacks badly. The technical aspects are also weak and thereís very little effort put into the extras. This DVD shows some potential, but it never quite comes together here.
Note to FantaDream: If youíre going to make a virtual sex DVD, please spend the effort on it to make the virtual part worthwhile. You have some nice ideas for extra features on the DVD, such as the two other scenes, but they shouldnít feel like the main draw for the DVD. Also, a few credits would be very nice.
