The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Iíve been extremely impressed with this series so far. Iím going into this one with extremely high expectations!
Initial Reaction: Itís a little weaker than the previous installments, but still a very nice change from the typical porno.
Who Should Watch It : Couples and anybody wanting porn with chemistry, passion, and fun!
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nasty porn or true newbies
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are a little weaker here than in previous episodes of Blind Sex Dates. The audio is clear and nicely balanced, but a few background noises appear to creep in now and then. The video is nicely lit, but thereís a hint of pixelation through much of the movie, a few shadows, and the camera pokes in during a couple shots. Itís never anything thatís enough to really interfere with the presentation, but it is enough to be noticed.
Music: Thereís a little music during the date portion, but thatís it. It nicely adds to the setup and helps it to have a more mainstream feel.
Disc Complaints: Thereís a Blind Sex Dates watermark that moves between the lower right and left corners. Watermarks donít 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 Iíve 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, and are set up like a typical TV on DVD release. You can choose between individual episodes and watching all of the episodes. Each individual episode menu lets you choose where youíd like to go in the scene as well as choosing extras related to the episode.
The FeatureFans of Seymore Buttís Family Business series on Showtime got to know his editor and secondary cameraman, Bishop. With Blind Sex Dates 2 Bishop continues to strike out on his own. He keeps the format of the reality dating shows youíre 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 - Gia and Polo|
Poloís going to school at the junior college and likes working out at the gym, but hates control freaks. Giaís a cute short haired exotic dancer whoís looking for a tall dark and handsome guy to have some fun with that her dog wonít reject. After Polo brings Gia a little toy and her dog doesnít bite him, they take a little drive around a park in a bike cart and talk. They head off to dinner, where Polo shows off a great lack of personality while Gia keeps talking about sex. They finish up dinner with Polo asking Gia if sheíd like to go to a strip club, which she eagerly agrees to. After they start kissing in the limo on the way over, however, Gia canít resist sucking and stroking Poloís cock. They decide to blow off the club and go back to Poloís place, where he quickly gets Gia down on the carpet so he can eat her completely shaven pussy. She has Polo lay back so she can reciprocate before sliding it into her pussy cowgirl style. They move on with a little missionary and doggie before Gia sucks and strokes Polo to a massive load in her mouth that runs all over her.
This is an amusing scene. Gia plays the slut card very well during the date portion, and it gets downright funny sometimes with how out of it Polo is while she throws herself at him. The sex is pretty good, and has some realistic energy and decent chemistry. Unfortunately the camera work seemed a little weak for Bishop. Thereís a couple spots where you could see the camera peeking in and shadows from the cameraman. Thereís also a few slightly obstructed shots. This is a pretty hot scene that with a few minor tweaks could have been even better.
|Scene 2 - Norma and Tylor|
Tylorís a martial arts instructor looking for a hot and intelligent California blonde while Normaís a nice looking blonde fashion designer from England with a nicely enhanced rack as well as what appears to be a bit of facial work. After he picks her up at her hotel, they head out to play a bit of fooseball, pool, and some other games. They have a bit of pizza and a couple cocktails before loosening up on a couch with a little kissing and heavy petting. They head back to Normaís room for a drink and a little more kissing and petting on the balcony. They help each other strip down before Norma drops down to mouth Tylorís manhood before heading back inside for Tylor to play with Normaís pussy before fucking it from behind on the bed. They also get in a bit of spooning and missionary before Tylor acts like he might have popped and then lets Norma suck out the last few drops.
This is another pretty good scene. Tylor comes off a bit off, and although I didnít care for Normaís looking like she had a fair amount of cosmetic surgery I couldnít help but like her. Sheís cute and they had a very natural feel in bed together. The main thing that hurt this scene was the pack of a decent pop at the end, but even then I couldnít help but not like the scene just because of Norma.
|Scene 3 - Tracy and Jesus|
Landscape designer Jesus wants a real and outgoing women, and Tracy wants a clean cut and prissy boy who doesnít forget his wallet on a date. They head to the gym for a martial arts lesson where Tracy kicks Jesusí butt before Bishop has them play around with some body paints. Tracy strips down to show a heavily tatooed back and that she has her navel and tits pierced as well as her tongue and a stud below her lower lip. After Tracy decorates Jesus with the paints, including a large ďBITCHĒ label across his chest, they kiss and Tracy lets Jesus kiss her all over. He gives quite a bit of attention to her ears, and takes his time working his way down to Tracyís pussy. She rewards him with a little oral attention before climbing on his speckled cock to ride it cowgirl style. They also spoon a bit before moving on with a little doggie fucking before Jesus tells Tracy that heís really trying to cum but sheís just too good. Sheís happy to play with herself a little while he tries to get himself there, and after a little more fucking Jesus launches a nice load onto Tracyís ass and back. Afterwards they clean up and head out to dinner.
This is an okay scene. The body painting is fun and a nice idea, but I had a really hard time getting into the scene because I didnít find either Tracy or Jesus that attractive. The sex also seemed a little too laid back and uncertain, which I didnít care for too much but at the same time kinda liked because it seemed more realistic for the situation. This is a fairly average scene.
|Scene 4 - Keri Sable and Franko del Toro|
Finally, Bishop hooks up porno people Keri and Franko because the fans wanted to see a couple porno people on a date. After a couple drinks and a ride on the mechanical bull they decide to do a little shopping in a sex store. They pick out outfits for each other to model in the store before heading back to Frankoís place. They kiss on the bed and help each other strip down before Keri starts warming Franko up orally. Keri encourages Franko to lie down on the bed so she can slide her snatch over his prick cowgirl style. She also lets Franko take her doggie and missionary style before he gives her a nice creamy facial.
This is a nicely done scene. Itís quite a bit shorter than the others, with the date seeming to be cut back more than the sex. Although I know Iím to be watching this for the sex, Bishopís done such a great job with the dates that I was really bummed that it was cut back. Keri and Franko look like they had a lot of fun, and the sex is just as enjoyable as the date. Thereís nice chemistry and energy, and it ends up a pretty hot scene.
Bishopís Blind Sex Dates 3 is a pretty good release, but struggles to keep up to its predecessors. As usual, it has a very nice feel to the scenes, and Bishop definitely did the right thing going from three scenes to four here. The dates are fun, and normally help a lot in establishing some chemistry between the couples. Yes, thereís times when it moves a little fast, but itís clear in almost every setup that these are people looking for some fun and a fuck. Yes, itís pretty obvious that the girls are porn talent, but the setups are fun enough that I really didnít have a problem with it. The male talent didnít look nearly as good as the girls, but at the same time they added enough reality to the scenes that they helped them out while not always doing the best job. The biggest problem with the movie, however, is that the first two episodes of the series were absolutely fantastic. With the quality Bishop put out before, I couldnít help but have sky high expectations, and Iíll readily admit that they might have been so high that they were difficult to meet. That said, Tracy and Jesusís scene here worked for me less than any other scene in the series, and Bishop seemed a little sloppy at times with his camera and reflection poking into the shots. Bishopís Blind Sex Dates 3 is a very nice change from the typical porno, but it isnít quite as good as previous episodes.
The Extra StuffEach episode menu gives you the option to watch a preview of the episode, slideshows, or sometimes bonus footage from the episode. All of the scenes except Giaís have two photo galleries, one for the scene and one for the behind the scenes of the scene. The photo galleries normally last about two minutes with roughly six seconds per very nice looking framed photo.
The bonus footage for Gia and Poloís scene lasts about eight and a half minutes. Thereís a little more chatting between them at the restaurant as well as a little more sex back and Poloís place. You get to see a brief spoon as well as Gia showing off for the camera and talking with Bishop while Polo takes care of business in the bathroom and a little extra after theyíre done. Tracy and Jesusí extra footage lasts about six minutes, and starts things out with Tracy in the makeup chair talking with Bishop and a bit of fooling around on the set. Finally, thereís about five and a half minutes of extra footage for Keri and Frankoís scene from the adult store as well as in the bedroom. Itís a very nice collection of extra footage, and gives you a little of everything you might want as long as it doesnít include Norma or Tylor.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, reality, and interracial
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
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. Although this one isnít quite as hot as previous episodes, itís still well worth the low end. The movie has a fun feel, but the sex varies from scene to scene. The video also seems pretty average, but thereís some decent effort put into the extras. This is another nicely put together DVD.
Note to Bishop and Smash Pictures: I guess you said it with comments in the movie about the guys not representing their sex too well. I hope in Blind Sex Dates 4 thereís some better guys!
