The Short Story

Initial Reaction: The sex is pretty average, but the overall feel nails late night dating shows so well it's hard not to like it anyway.
Who Should Watch It : Reality porn fans
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a wide range of sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty well done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and although there are a few background noises they're all pretty minor and kind of fit in with this style movie. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks pretty good. There's a little minor camera motion, but it's well focused and decently lit.
Music: There's a little music here and there, but that's about it.
Watermark Warning: Like many of the late night dating shows it's imitating, Blind Sex Dates has a watermark in the lower right corner. I know some hate them, but here it didn't bother me for two reasons. First, they're far from uncommon for the shows being imitated here, so it kind of adds to the feeling. Second, it stays in one place rather than moving around so I found it very easy to put out of mind.
Menus: The main menu nicely lets you choose a scene based on a Polaroid clip of each couple with their name and a title for their scene or to watch all of the scenes. If you choose a scene you're given several more Polaroid clips to make a choice about where you want to go in the scene or you can watch a preview or slideshows on the scene.
The FeatureFans of Seymore Butt’s Family Business series on Showtime got to know his editor and secondary cameraman, Bishop. With the Blind Sex Dates series Bishop continues to strike 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 – Chase Dasani and Octavio|
Octavio meets blonde Chase at a park where she thinks they're supposed to draw each other and he thinks they're to write each other poems. They share a bowl of fruit, draw pictures, and try to figure out how to spell Octavio's name together before heading to dance lessons. They go out to dinner at an Italian restaurant where they chat about relationships and Chase gets a call that pisses her off from an ex. It does, however, get her in the mood so they go back to her hotel room where they kiss on her bed as they strip each other down. Chase softly sucks Octavio's cock before he lays her back to tongue her pierced pussy as she gives him a few instructions so he can make her cum. Chase gets on all fours for Octavio to fuck her doggie style and then gets on top of him for a cowgirl ride as he shows no respect for the sock gap. They also fuck missionary style before Octavio pops on Chase's stomach and gives her a few soft kisses on the mouth and neck.
This is a very nice opening scene. The date was okay, but the sex was nicely done. There was good chemistry between Octavio and Chase, and the heavy kissing to start out the sex really kicked up the passion level. They move through the positions nicely with Chase showing some obvious knowledge of what gets her off while Octavio put out a performance that's very respectable for somebody who I don't think is used to fucking in front of a camera, This is a good opening scene with some very nice chemistry.
|Scene 2 – Heather Cook and Alex|
Dark haired Dutch Heather meets Alex outside her place in a pair of short cutoff jeans and a white top that doesn't look to be more than a sportsbra. They go for a walk in the great outdoors before going out to dinner at a tropical themed restaurant and then head to a hot tub place where they enjoy a little wine in the tub. They start kissing in the tub and Alex helps her out of her bikini to suck her tits as Heather sits on his lap. He stands up so she can help him out of his swim trunks before he drops down to admire her ass and tongue her from behind as she stands up at the edge of the tub. Alex sits on the edge of the tub so she can return the favor with some sucking and stroking before he goes back to eating her pussy as Heather lays back on a conveniently located bed next to the tub. He gives her a good spooning as she encourages him to fuck her hard, and then moves on with a little doggie fucking and a cowgirl ride. Finally they fuck missionary style before Alex unleashes a very impressive load on Heather's tits and face.
This is another hot and fun scene. Heather looks great, and there's some nice chemistry that builds between her and Alex. The date didn't do a lot for me as Alex seemed to push the sex aspect a little hard, but it does move from the date into the sex at the hot tub place very nicely. The chemistry between Heather and Alex is nicely on display throughout the scene, and they move through the positions very nicely. For a pair of new faces, both Heather and Alex do a great job with the sex and the action is nicely captured. This is another hot and fun scene.
|Scene 3 – Holly Stevens and DJ|
DJ almost got married, but now he's anxious to get back in action and is a fan of Holly, who's a little curious how it's going to turn out going out with a fan. He lets her know that he's going to surprise her for their date, and starts out taking her to the Hustler Hollywood store where he strikes out repeatedly with his picks for her until finding a vibe she thinks she'd like. They head to a Mediterranean restaurant where he questions her about one of her scenes and things going wrong in the industry and they share a fun kiss before they go somewhere a little more private to try out the toy they got on their first stop. Holly lies back and lets DJ work it around her pussy before stripping off her panties and top and letting DJ tongue her twat. She has him lie back so she can suck his cock in return before she lies back and lets him fuck her missionary style. He moves around to kind of spoon her a little and then dribbles his pop on her bush.
This is an okay scene. The sex store for the start of the date seemed more than a little awkward, and Holly seems to overdo her vocals for the sex. Most of this seems to be due to DJ having some wood problems, but the start of the sex worked well and they look to have some good fun with the toy from the sex shop. There's some chemistry here, but there's also enough awkwardness to hold the scene back a little and the lack of post-date interviews only makes it seem like it might have been even more awkward. This scene makes it past the average mark, but not by a lot.
|Scene 4 – Gianna Taylor and Leo|
Leo meets up with exotic looking and high strung Gianna at a little restaurant where they chat and he forgets her name. They head to the beach for a little rollerblading, and when Leo gives Gianna a condom as a joke she's out of there.
This might not be a sex scene, but it definitely adds to the overall movie. It's nice to see somebody strike out rather than having every date end in sex. Gianna had plenty of attitude throughout the scene, and I couldn't help but think that as much as good as she might have been in the sack the attitude afterwards might not have been worth it. This scene adds nicely to the overall movie even if it doesn't have any sex.
|Scene 5 – Jerzi Lynn and Eric|
Aspiring geeky film maker Eric is hooked up with Vegas escort Jerzi, who's a bit surprised when he shows up with a football to toss around. They chat and throw around the ball before going horseback riding with Eric making sure to wear a helmet and Jerzi enjoying the vibrations of the horse. They go to dinner at a sushi place before heading back to the hotel where Eric flops back on the bed and they kiss. Jerzi sucks his cock before getting on it for a cowgirl ride. She gets off to suck him a bit more, and as some white good appears around his cock claims he's going to cum. Jerzi pulls off with a smile as some Elmer's glue looking stuff comes out of her mouth.
This scene just didn't do a lot for me. Jerzi comes off as being overly trashy while Eric comes off as being overly geeky. Throw in what looks to be some major wood problems near the end and an obviously faked pop and you have a scene that provides a bit of humor, but that's it. Jerzi and Eric end Blind Sex Dates 4 on a low note.
Blind Sex Dates 4 is a very likable release. No, the scenes don't always end in sex and the sex isn't always the best. That said, there's a definite charm here due to its style. Bishop really nails the late night dating show vibe for this series (I can't think of another series that does it as well as Bishop does it here) and it's nice to see fresh faces in a series like this rather than the same porn stars you've seem plenty of times before. Yes, there's some porn chicks here as well, but with how the movie it it's easy to think that this might have been their first scene. Chase and Heather easily turn out the best scenes here, while Jerzi and Eric's scene comes in at the opposite end of the spectrum due to wood problems and the lack of a believable pop. The sex has a slightly amateurish feeling about it that actually works with the style of the overall movie, and it also helps the movie lean towards this being all first timers (with the exception of Holly who admits to being in the industry). Blind Sex Dates 4 doesn't always hit sexually, but it nails the late night dating show vibe so well that it's hard not to like it anyway.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Secretary's Day, White Wife Black Cock 7, Registered Nurse, Clothes Freaks, Mother Lode, Cheating Housewives, Whale Tail, and Teen Idol 4. Each scene gets two slide shows, one for the scene and one for behind the scenes, lasting between a half minute and a minute and a half for each and giving about seven seconds per good looking Polaroid style photo. There's also a behind the scenes featurette, weblinks, and as always, the ability to watch the movie with the story or in wall to wall mode.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about three and a half minutes. Bishop starts out running around and trying to figure out who ate his cereal before having a little fun around Jerzi and Erik's scene. This is a nice little addition to the overall DVD, but doesn't add too much that's too special or fun.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight and toys
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. At the low end this one's a very nice buy. The movie's fun even though the sex is pretty average. The technical aspects are decent and there's a little effort put into the overall DVD. This is an enjoyable release.
Note to Smash Pictures: Although the sex might not have always been the best, with how well the rest of the movie is it's great to see you continuing this series.
