There are some interesting personalities here, like Kimberly Kane, Lexi Bardot and Christian. You do get to see their personalities a bit more, as they have some time to chill and aren't scripted to do anything specific. The idea is that they are to be filmed together and play around together and team up in different groupings as they wish for some action. So there's a lot of girl on girl, a few girl on guy encounters and some group action.
One of the more full sex scenes has Kimberly and Christian going at it after they talked up their fan relationship with each other. That's a nice little scene, more like real sex than porn acting, so it works for that. Of course, they're still being watched, and some of the angles come from the "perv cams", which are framed so that you know this is a view brought to you by one of the housemates.
Those "perv cam" shots can be a bit annoying, due to the lower quality of the shots and the white border and the green print that alerts you to "Perv cam: Katia" or whoever is filming, but they also give you more impromptu little clips of the cast playing around in between the other "professional" cam scenes.
The whole feel of the dvd is pretty loose. I like the cast and I feel that this brings a good mix of sex and entertainment. If you want a porn you can just chill out and watch like you would watch, say, a show like the Real World, then this works for that. If you're interested in getting to know these performers in a bit more detail than you might see otherwise, it's definitely worth checking out. I'm a big fan of Lexi, and really like Kimberly as well, so I enjoyed seeing them here.
Some of the other full scenes feature Katja and Luscious taking on Mark Wood; Kaya and Nat playing with one another; Luscious and Christian; Kaiya and Lexi playing with Nat; Katja & Kimberly having at one another (Kimberly credits seeing a "cool chick" like Katja in porn as a reason for her getting into the biz.). There's also Nat and Luscious teaming up after Luscious gets Nat laughing after she talks about how excited he was with the massive booties at some Orgy scene they did together, she rides him on the couch and eventually is lying flat on her belly for a cumshot on her butt, that whole scene was filmed on Katja's perv cam. The last sex scene here features Kaiya playing with Christian in and around a jacuzzi. They even do some anal here, and a bit of anal play for him as well; after he fucks her ass, she gets on top in 69 and uses a vibrator on him while he cums in her mouth.
Finally, they give some closing comments about the experience. Everyone seems to have gotten along well and had fun. Of course, they only had less than 2 days together, so you aren't gonna get the Real World kinda fights like you might if they lived together for months. Apparently Mark is a bit OCD and apparently over-washes his hands. And, for the record, Nat has no problems with getting blown by girls. He just likes looking at the pretty girls sucking him even more than the physical sensation. So see, you can learn alot about people.
Extras: Disc 2 There is a whole second dvd of bonus materials which contains more sex, more confessions with the cast, a behind the scenes segment, a segment on "The Women of Chemistry", a photo gallery, a BTS photo gallery, a preview of volume 3, and a trailers reel for other Vivid productions.
The bonus sex features three scenes, the first features more of Lexi when she was playing with Christian on Nat's perv cam, but we get a little bit more of that action here than was used on the main feature, as she gets a dildo used on her for a minute.
Next, we get Lexi taking on Nat, she sucks on him before getting screwed on the couch in doggy, as filmed by Mark.
Lastly, there's a little scene with Mark and Kaiya as Christian films Mark getting a BJ outside.
The bonus confessions let us hear the cast answering more questions, like "Does your family know what you do?" and we learn that some do and some don't and there's a mixed bag of reactions to them, some have a lot more support than others.
Kaiya and Luscious also give interesting responses to what it's like to be a woman of color in the biz.
We get to hear responses to a lot of other interesting questions, too. So, the extra confessions here are well worth watching, too.
The BTS features the cast getting their instructions, or anti-instructions in a way, from Tristan Taormino, about trying to avoid the "porn formula" type sex.
Conclusions: I think overall this is a real success. It works for what it aims to be. It's interesting for those who are interested in hearing more from the performers as people, and who'd like to see them with their guard down a bit. The sex is still good, but the flow of the program works more like a casual, reality tv type show. It's fairly entertaining, interesting and sexy.
