Initial Expectations: Although the cover should have made me expect nothing, with a title like The Bare Bitch Project, I couldn't help but have some hope.
Initial Reaction: It's about what I should have expected or a little better.
Who Should Watch It : Major fans of the stars
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a better than average movie
Audio /Video Quality: The audio was very good and very well synched with the video. Surprisingly, the video quality was excellent.
Music: Typical. It was quietly in the background and never intruded on the sex.
The Feature: I started to get a bad feeling about The Bare Bitch Project before either the movie or the initial menu came up. I actually glanced at the screen while all the copyright stuff was going across and I saw it was all labeled for videotape. Thankfully having this go through my DVD player didn't seem to do any permanent harm.
The Bare Bitch Project revolves around the 'Youwannamee' icon, a carved wooden cobra that if you look hard enough you might find at an area garage sale. The icon guarantees newlyweds to have sex at least three times a day, but can only be kept for thirty days. If you keep it longer, you will have extremely bad luck. Since this is an adult film, I'm assuming that this means that in the next film those people will have to do their scene with Ed Powers. Whoever picks up the icon will get flashes of hot sex which drives them to find the nearest partner. I have to admit that at times I wish that The Bare Bitch Project was done in the style of Brad Armstong's 'Hell on Heels', where the starts are simply listed at the start of each scene and they go from there. I think that almost every Pokemon episode has more plot than The Bare Bitch Project, although the sex here is much, much better.
The sex in The Bare Bitch Project is anything but couples friendly, despite the icon being a traditional engagement or wedding gift. Stephanie Swift and Chris Cannon's scene near the end of the feature is the only scene without anal. Also, every other scene has at least one of the women getting DP'd, most of which are using toys. The final two scenes (the aforementioned Stephanie and Chris and Nancy and Regan) are also the only non-group sex scenes. The scenes are also extremely long (the shortest is about fifteen minutes) with almost no plot to break things apart much.
The Bare Bitch Project starts off with Dave Hardman coming home to find the icon on the table and Alexandra nowhere to be found. He finally finds her in the shower giving in to the urges the icon brought out. Shortly after Dave gives Alexandra's hand a break, Raquel and Pat show up and also find the icon. They find Dave and Alexandra going at it on the bathtub and decide to join in. The two guys and Alexandra aren't enough for Raquel, who also has to bring out a dildo. After they come to, (or is that cum too?) none of them remember how it started, only that they were to be going to a concert together. At least they made some beautiful music together.
Next, Nancy walks into the room where John and Herschel were playing pool with a box containing the icon. She's the only person who knows what it is, and of course they all pass it around, each getting a sexual flash. Nancy has some good enthusiasm and in addition to being cute has a great natural body. This is the only group scene without toy usage. A toy would have really detracted form the scene as Nancy isn't at all shy about taking both guys at once. Unlike the first scene, after all was said and everybody was done, everybody knew exactly what was done. Although this could have been one of the best scenes in the movie, I thought Herschel really detracted from it. He came off really nerdy with Buddy Holly style glasses and didn't really fit the scene. It's really too bad, as Herschel normally does a much better job.
Tyce and Regan somehow get the icon and give it to Blair as an engagement present. Although all the girls except Stephanie were new to me, Blair struck me as being extremely new to adult films. Maybe it was that she still had one of the most natural bodies I've seen in adult films (including a not-entirely firm stomach). Maybe it was that her orgasms seemed way to real to be faked. Maybe it had something to do with her not being able to catch the rhythm in the three-some. Regardless of what it was, it was fun to watch her due to all of these things. Her face was also extremely plain. Cute, but not so much that it would catch every man's eye as she walked down the street. Please don't get me wrong and think that I'm stating this as a negative. Blair would be ideal in one of the college school girl videos. Regan also looked very average, although she lacked the cute-ness of Blair and came off as more than a little slutty, and not in the good way. Tyce was just kind of there.
Next, Stephanie arrives home from work to find a wrapped box waiting for her on the table. Chris, unlike every other person who found the box first, didn't open it. He's more concerned about watering the plants than in satisfying Stephanie, but he soon comes around. This is a very well done outdoor scene. The lighting and sound are well done and it's also paced very well.
Finally, Nancy takes a bubble bath. Hey, it's a long porno and she's a dirty, dirty girl even though she was only in one scene so far. She's relaxing in her own way when Regan knocks on the door to deliver the icon. They're both shocked that it's coming back around already, but since it's late, they don't feel like fighting off the urges the icon gave them. There's heavy toy usage here, and both girls get DP'd. My main complaint about this scene was that most of the focus seemed to be on Regan, although Nancy was very aggressive at doing her part. Finally, they think of who to give the icon to and head out to deliver it themselves.
Due to the lack of a plot, I was surprised at how well the technical aspects were done. The audio and video are excellent! During Stephanie and Chris's outdoor romp you don't hear any of the outdoor sounds that can easily detract from a scene. Even in the final scene which starts with Nancy taking a bubble bath surrounded by candles, the picture is clear. I know that a lot of credit should go to the director, but regardless of his actions, a bad transfer could have easily ruined either scene. Of course, the best transfer in the world wouldn't mean anything if he hadn't done his job either. I also have to give the director a lot of credit for showing each of the stars during the opening credits. The only familiar face (and butt and, well you know) was Stephanie Swift, so it was nice to get an idea of who the others are so I can look for them to either see or avoid in the future.
Extras: A photo gallery.
Themes: Straight, lesbian, group, anal, DP, spanking, trash talking, toys, and toe-ing
Raincoat Factor: Extreme
Overall: If you're into group sex, anal sex, or toys you might enjoy The Bare Bitch Project. If you're not into any of these, you better keep on moving. The plot is weaker than any episode of Pokemon I've heard of, but the sex is well done. The extras aren't even worth mentioning, but the audio and video quality are great.
