The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I haven’t had the best luck with reality styled porn, but Bishop has done some very nice work with Seymore Butts and Smash has really been on a hot streak lately. I have some decent hope here.
Initial Reaction: It’s far better than I expected or even hoped for!
Who Should Watch It : Couples and anybody wanting chemistry and a fun and laid back feeling
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear and nicely balanced. There’s a few background noises, but they actually add to the movie and the realistic feel of it. The video is also nicely done. There’s a little grain at times, but nothing that interferes with the action. It’s also nicely lit.
Music: There’s a little music for the dating portion of the scene. It rests nicely in the background and helps the overall feel of the movie.
Disc Complaints: There’s a Blind Sex Dates watermark in the lower right corner. Watermarks don’t annoy me like some people as long as they stay there so they can be tuned out. The watermark comes and goes a little, but also fits the feel of the feature. Most of the reality dating type shows I’ve watched on TV had a watermark just like the one here, so I found it easy to look past here most of the time. That said, it would have been much easier to look past if it would have been smaller and closer to the corner.
Menus: The menus are nicely done. The main menu has some nice animation and a fun feel to give a very nice first impression. It works with the same feel used by many DVD TV collections by also acting as a chapter menu. When you select an episode it takes you to a secondary menu which lets you go to a specific sex act in the scene or to extras associated with that episode.
The FeatureFans of Seymore Butt’s Family Business series on Showtime got to know his editor and secondary cameraman, Bishop. With Blind Sex Dates Bishop strikes out on his own. He keeps the format of the reality dating shows you’re used to seeing on late night TV, but rather than just following things from when the guy picks the girl up to when he drops her off after the date, Bishop goes after what happens after the guy brings her home from the date.
|Scene 1 - Amanda Roberts and David Crud|
After getting stuck in traffic and showing up at cute dirty blonde Amanda’s about a half hour late, tattooed David presents her with a tin of sex wax and takes her to the beach. Amanda’s a little turned off at his presumptuousness with the sex wax, but lets it go when she learns that it’s for a surf lesson. They talk a little and she shows him her nicely natural tits before going out to dinner. David and Amanda cut dinner a little short and head back to her place for desert. They head to the bedroom and start stripping down as David works his mouth from Amanda’s pretty little titties down to her twat while she moans like crazy. Amanda returns David’s oral affections with some nice enthusiasm before laying back on the bed and letting him fuck her missionary style. She has David move around to spoon her before sucking him a bit and climbing back up to ride him reverse cowgirl style. They keep going with a big of doggie style fucking before going back to missionary and David pulling out just in time to pop all over Amanda’s pussy.
This is a great scene that definitely gives Blind Sex Dates a very favorable first impression. Bishop keeps the dating part right in line with the typical late night TV dating shows while keeping the sex part right in line with a well done porno. There’s plenty of chemistry and nice energy to the sex, and Bishop does a nice job of giving you a nice variety of camera angles. This is a very hot scene and a great start to the movie.
|Scene 2 - Marigold and Grant Hamil|
Grant, who’s a bit of a geek, shows up at Marigold’s with some flowers before they head off to a martial arts lesson. After Marigold kicks his ass they head off to dinner where Marigold learns that Grant doesn’t drink at all and they talk about their sexual experiences. They head off for a quick massage lesson before getting into an exotic hot tub. They grope and explore each other orally, with Marigold making the first big move by sucking Grant’s cock. He returns the favor with some tonguing for Marigold’s twat before letting her suck him a bit more. He sheaths his sword before sliding it into her slit missionary style. They move on for a little doggie style before Grant pops on her great ass.
This is another very nice scene. There’s plenty of humor in the date portion, and I love how Grant is a bit of a geek rather than one of the super studs that are normally in porn. Marigold also comes off as very nice, although I was surprised to see her getting into Grant as much as she did. Of course, that’s some of the fun of setups like this, and in the end it came off as another very good scene although the sex lacked a little compared to the previous scene.
|Scene 3 - Melina Kali and Rick|
When Rick shows up at Melina’s, she meets him at the gate and gives him a lei. They go horseback riding before Rick agrees to learn a little about Melina’s culture. She goes off and returns with a pair of grass skirts for them and a coconut bra for Rick so that she can teach him to do a proper hula dance. They head off for dinner, and after a little sex talk head back to Rick’s to “do dessert”. After talking a little more, Melina lets Rick help her remove her panties. He plays with her pussy and kisses it softly before moving up to worship her amazing tits. Melina insists that he stop so she can suck his cock, but lets him tongue her a little more after she gets him ready. She turns around so Rick can fuck her doggie style first before rolling onto her back for a little missionary work. Rick pulls out to let go with a pop and goes right back to give Melina a little more since she doesn’t want him to stop.
This is a nice scene to finish things with. Rick comes off as a bit dopey, but Melina seems to dig him and really has a fun spirit. You can see them getting into each other very well as the scene goes on, and the sex is nice and passionate. This is a hot scene and brings the movie to a nice close.
Bishop’s Blind Sex Dates is a fantastic couples movie. Okay, don’t turn away from it because I said that. Maybe instead I should say that Blind Sex Dates shows what a couples movie should be like. It doesn’t have the slow and boring sex after some bad acting that normally come to mind when somebody says “couples movie”. Instead it has fun date setups that actually feel believable. They’re long enough that you can feel something happening between the performers but not so long that you want to reach for the remote. It keeps the reality feel very well, and ends up coming out both believable and enjoyable, unlike some other “reality themed pornos”. The sex is handled every bit as well as the setups. Bishop does a great job of mixing up the camera angles so that things don’t get boring, and the sex itself feels natural. The guys aren’t always rock hard and the cast looks like good looking normal people rather than a bunch of super models. The closest thing I can come to complaining about with Blind Sex Dates is that you never saw anything going wrong. I halfway thought that Marigold was going to turn Grant away, and part of me thinks that the movie might have been better having that happen and moving on with another couple. On the other hand, they did turn in a nice scene so I can’t complain too much. Bishop’s Blind Sex Dates is a hot and fun adult movie that’s definitely worth checking out.
The Extra StuffA slideshow is included for each episode which lasts about a minute with roughly six seconds per nice looking snapshot. There’s also a little bonus footage for each scene. There’s seven and a half minutes from Amanda and Dave’s scene where you get to see more of them at the beach as well as more bedroom action. There’s eleven minutes with Grant and Marigold. Marigold shows off some of her skills before they get a little more training. There’s a little banter between Marigold and Grant in the car, as well as a little action between them both in the car and in the hot tub. Melina and Rick have ten minutes of extra footage. There’s only a little date footage here, but quite a bit of sex. You actually get a little cowgirl action here as well as a little more oral play. The bonus footage is nicely done.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, spanking, and interracial
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: Only between Marigold and Grant
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Smash DVDs can be found online for between $14 and $24 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. This one’s well worth the money. The sex is hot, the technical aspects are nicely done, and there’s some decent effort put into the extras. If you like reality dating shows and porn, pick this one up right away.
Note to Smash Pictures: Great job picking up Bishop for this one. I hope you keep this series coming out fairly regularly!
