The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I've never been too into Julia Bond, but with how fun most of Shane's World's releases have been I can't help but look forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: The setups are fun but the sex is so limited that it starts holding the movie back by the second scene.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of Julia Bond
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a variety of sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't hear any inappropriate background noises. There's a fair amount of the movie that's shot outside or in moving vehicles, but the limitations of those locations are never noticeable with the care the audio's given. The video is presented in the full frame format, and looks pretty good. There's a little camera motion, but again, for the locations it's amazingly well handled. The lighting is also well handled, but there is a touch of grain throughout the movie. This is a good looking and sounding release before one pays attention to some of the difficult locations where the movie was shot, and then it only gets more impressive.
Music: There's a little music mixed into the movie here and there with a nice balance that helps out the entire movie.
Menus: The main menu works through a little animation to a nice still of Julia, a clip form the movie, and the cover style. The chapter menu is sadly and surprisingly generic, and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureJulia Bond seems perfect for the Shane's World crew. She's darn hot, loves sex, and loves to get wild and crazy. Here she mixes sex with bungee jumping, race cars, and a day fooling around while letting the cameras know a bit about her.
|Scene 1 – Julia Bond and Sascha|
After hiking miles to bungee jump topless and then miles back out, Julia recovers in a hot tub with Sascha. He kisses her on the mouth and tits before letting her sit on the edge and have her wish for some pussy eating granted. Sascha hops out of the pool so Julia can suck his dick in return before letting her ride it cowgirl style so she can show off her fantastic ass. Julia also gets in some reverse cowgirl and sucks Sascha clean before letting him spoon her. They head inside for a little missionary work and some doggie fucking until Sascha pops on her ass.
This is a very nice scene. The bungee jumping opening is fun, and of course Julia looks great doing it. It also provides a nice lead-in for the hot tub and sex, which is very nice. Julia and Sascha never go way over the top, but there's plenty of chemistry between them and the action moves along very nicely. This is a hot opening for the movie that shows off plenty of chemistry and personality.
|Scene 2 – Julia Bond and Kyle Moore|
After a little time shopping, pigging out on hotdogs, and the fair, Julia decides it's time to go home and get a little sexual relief. When the sun comes up she's still in bed and naked with Kyle, and goes right to work sucking his cock. Julia doesn't waste any time, and climbs up to ride him cowgirl style soon after before turning around for the reverse cowgirl fuck. They also get in some doggie and spooning before Kyle backs off to lick Julia's pussy. They also get in a little missionary fucking before returning to cowgirl and Kyle popping on Julia's ass.
This is an okay scene. As usual Julia's darn hot, but Kyle doesn't do a lot for me even if he does appear to provide a good hard cock. There's nice chemistry between them, but the scene felt way too similar to the previous scene. Yes, the location and guy changed, but the camera is focused enough on Julia throughout the scene that you just don't see much of a difference. This isn't a bad scene, but it was way too similar to the first scene for me.
|Scene 3 – Julia Bond and Erik Everhard|
Julia, who's looking darn hot in a pink and tan camo skirt, a jean jacket, an olive spaghetti strap top, and cowboy boots, talks about hanging out with people from the industry as Erik shoots some pool behind her. She brings him in to talk about how they're not just sex toys who do nothing but fuck when together, even though he's not opposed to the idea, before playing some pool with him. When she loses they get it on with Erik eagerly running his hands around her before dropping down to bury his face in her ass eating her from behind. Julia has him stop so she can suck his cock kneeling in front of him before getting back up so Erik can lick and fuck her from behind as she bends over the pool table. He tongues Julia a little more and picks her up to fuck her cowgirl style standing up with Julia bracing herself a bit on the table before laying her back on it to fuck her missionary style. They also get in a little pussy licking and missionary work in the kitchen before Julia has Erik take a break to get her some water from the fridge. He licks her a little more rather than getting something to drink himself before Julia runs off letting him know he can fuck her more if he can catch her. They meet up on the couch for a bit more cowgirl fucking, as well as the mandatory reverse cowgirl and some spooning. Julia and Erik finish things up fucking missionary style before he pops in and around her mouth.
This is a hot scene. I love the playful feeling Julia puts out as she and Erik get it on throughout the house, and the opening “we're not just fucktoys” talk before heading to the porno required pool table and fucking adds some nice humor as well. There's also some fantastic chemistry between Erik and Julia, and he easily rises above the other guys to help make this one easily the best scene in the movie.
|Scene 4 – Julia Bond and Trent Tesoro|
Julia heads to Bakersville to learn how to drive race cars next. After getting passed like crazy she brings her fantasy of having sex in a garage to life with the help of Trent. He kisses his way around her a bit before she drops down to start mouthing his manhood. Trent has her sit back on a bench so he can tongue her twat before getting up for another quick suck and some missionary fucking. He lets her have it a bit from behind before she rides him reverse cowgirl style as he lays back in a tire. Julia turns around to make sure she gets in some cowgirl fucking also and even picks her up to let her have it in midair. They get back down for some doggie and more cowgirl action before Trent pops on Julia's ass.
This is another okay scene. Julia looks great and the scene fits in nicely with the racing theme, but it also feels like another recycled scene. Trent just doesn't seem to bring too much to a scene normally, and although he provided a hard cock the scene felt so much like the first two that I just couldn't care about it too much. This isn't a bad scene, but it's so similar to the first two that it's hard to get into it.
|Scene 5 – Julia Bond and Chris Charming|
The final scene lets Julia give you a POV fantasy with the help of Chris, who lays back for her to suck his cock wearing a little white lingerie. She climbs up to ride “you” cowgirl style before getting on all fours for some doggie action. They mix in a quick footjob with the missionary fucking, and Julia rolls to her side to take a bit of it. Finally, Julia rolls back to her back and lets Chris pop on her stomach.
This is another okay scene. I'm not a big fan of POV porn, but the camera does a nice job of capturing Julia while leaving Chris out of it. The action moves along nicely through the scene, but it can't help but feel redundant even with the change of styles. I just couldn't get into this scene.
Diary of Julia Bond is a bit of a surprise in both the good and bad way. When I first saw this one coming out I couldn't help but think that Shane's World was trying something a bit different going with the vignette style of Julia flashing back to some of her day. Although there's a part of me that's always eager to see somebody try something new, I was also more than happy here to see Shane's World sticking with the active reality porn style that they've done so well for so long. Julia does a great job throughout the movie bringing the cameras along as she bungee jumps, learns how to drive a race car, and hangs out, and the segments all nicely lead into the sex. I'm not a big fan of tattoos, which Julia has plenty of, and mole piercings are easily one of my biggest turn-offs. That said, the camera did a nice job capturing her body and with her great smile, eyes, and spirit I found it very easy to get past those two physical dislikes. Julia looks great throughout the entire movie, and puts out a great personality that looks to be full of life.
Unfortunately, the sex just can't keep up with the segments leading into it. The scenes on their own mostly hover around the average level, but as a whole they're surprisingly limited and quickly grow old. Although I love watching girls in cowgirl (and Julia's great for it with her amazing ass), here it was so overused that I was starting to get tired of it by the second scene. It also gets fairly boring because the entire movie is Julia taking on just one guy in every scene. No group sex. No girl on girl. All you get here sexually is Julia with one guy at a time and three of the five pop shots going on her ass. That can be okay if done right, but here it seems very repetitive and limited, especially with Julia turning out some great girl – girl and group scenes in the past. I'm not fond of blowjob scenes, but even one of those here would have helped to break the movie up a little. Although her scene with Chris Charming stands out by being a POV scene, her scene with Erik Everhard is easily the best with tons of chemistry and a completely fun and playful feeling. Diary of Julia Bond is a fun movie, but the sex is so limited that the movie falls back into mediocrity.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Devon Does Baja, College Amateur Tour, College Invasion 11, Shane's World 39: Casey's Pool Party, Casey Parker: The Girl Next Door, and Blazed & Confused 2: The Hunt for Maui Wowwee. The photo gallery lasts nearly two minutes with about six seconds per nice looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also an interview with Julia, bonus scenes, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The interview with Julia Bond lasts about six and a quarter minutes. Julia talks about bungee jumping, racing cars, and how women should have confidence in themselves. She also talks about her ears and temper, fighting, and what she looks for in a guy. If that isn't enough, Julia talks about some of her hobbies and things that were left out of the movie. This is a very nice interview with Julia opening up nicely. She talks fast, but keeps a fun feeling to the chat that helps it to work nicely. If you like Julia, you really need to check the interview out.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about nine and a quarter minutes. It starts out with a little extra footage from the bungee jumping before, after, and between Julia's jumps. There's also a little extra footage of her around the race cars as well as them getting yelled at at the fair. If that isn't enough you get a little extra sex footage and a bonus masturbation in the shower. This is a nice behind the scenes featurette that adds very nicely to the overall DVD.
|Bonus Scene 1- Julia Bond|
The first bonus scene in a POV handjob. Julia strips out of a pink bikini to show off her great body before heading to the bed and pulling off “your” pants to release a limp cock. She starts stroking it while smiling and talking soft to “you” and even rubs it around her tis a bit. She heads back to the dresser for a bit of lube to help her out before going back to stroking the cock, and even mixes in a little tongue tease before telling “you” how you're not going to get any more than that. After stroking him as he lays back on the bed Julia squats down and strokes him as he stands in front of her until he unloads over her great tits.
This is a nice little bonus scene. Julia does a very nice job playing to the camera, and an excellent job of adding in plenty of teasing rather than just jerking off the cock. The camera work is pretty good through the scene, but there is a bit of motion that was distracting and seemed a little off. This is a good POV handjob scene, and a great extra for the movie.
|Bonus Scene 2 – Julia Bond and Jerry|
The second bonus scene comes from Girls' Night Out 2. Julia starts out laying back on the couch in Jerry's lap as he pulls up her shirt to free her tits and play with her nipples. She happily frees Jerry's cock in return and goes to work sucking it as he plays with her pussy and holds her hair out of the way. Julia tries taking it all the way down but can't, and after a bit lets Jerry slide under her so they can sixty-nine. They move on to fuck in each of the cowgirls before getting in some doggie fucking, and then go back to the reverse cowgirl with a bit of side saddle mixed in. Jerry also fucks Julia missionary style before finally popping on Julia's stomach, tits, and face before letting her suck what's left out of his cock.
This is a fun scene. Jerry and Julia have great chemistry and keep things moving nicely. The action is pretty simple and straightforward, but with the fun feeling they put out it's hard to get down on the scene. There's also some fun chatting between them and Penny behind the camera after they finish fucking that helps the scene out even more. The only thing that held this scene back for me was an occasional soft focus blur, but with the amateurish style that often comes out with Shane's World releases (and since it often adds a bit to the charm of their movies rather than holding them back it's not a complaint) it didn't interfere with the scene too much. This is another nicely done bonus scene.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, rimming (male > female), and footjob
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Shane's World's DVDs can be found online for between about $18 and $25 with only a few stores offering them for under $20. Rent this one first unless you're a big fan of Julia Bond. Julia comes off being a lot of fun but the sex is way too limited. The technical aspects are nicely done and there's some very nice effort put into the extras. This release lacks sexually, but still shows some very good care.
Note to Shane's World: Although this one didn't work for me sexually, thank you for putting so much care into your releases that I couldn't get down on it too much.
