|Where to buy:||DVD Rent|
NOTE: This is an amateur video. Amateur and homemade movies don’t have the budget nor the resources of studio porn, and therefore rarely get close to the same quality technically. I’m rating this DVD on the same scale, but most homemade or amateur features would rarely make it above a 3 on the standard scale I use for studio porn for their technical aspects. The performers also aren’t normally the ‘glamour stars’ one expects from studio porn, and instead use people who look like somebody you might encounter in your day to day life. Finally, the camera work has a different feel, as it’s often shot from a tripod or with somebody who doesn’t have the technical training or experience of professional cameramen. That said, amateur and homemade features have a great charm to them, simple because the people in them are doing what they’re doing to have fun and because they enjoy it. All the things that separate them from studio porn contribute to that charm, I hope people will keep that in mind when checking out this review and not just look at the ratings as the ultimate word on this release. Since the technical aspects are normally lacking and there normally isn’t much for extras in amateur features, I’ve weighted my overall rating more heavily towards the sex than I do in most studio porn.

The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done for an amateur release. The audio is clear, but the balance is often off with Austin talking to Donna from behind the camera. The video is presented in the full frame format, and varies a little. There's very little grain and Austin seems to know how to handle the camera so there isn't a lot of motion either. There is, however, quite a bit of variations in the lighting, which is nothing new for homemade porn.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally don’t bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that stays in the lower right corner for the first scene and the upper right corner for the second scene. This made it very easy to filter out for me, and quite honestly, I didn’t notice it unless I thought about it.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu keeps Shot at Home’s usual style with their logo and a photo from the movie. The chapter menu is also simple, and lets you choose where to go in the movie based on six stills.
The FeatureDonna is a brunette musician living on the west coast. She and her man Austin also have a video camera and decide to put it to use showing off some of Donna's sexuality. She starts off with her panty drawer, and they keep moving around as they mix it up.
|Scene 1 - Donna and Austin|
Donna starts out in jeans and a red bra with her hair in very cute pigtails putting on a red shirt and checking herself out in the mirror. She gives Austin a big smile before letting him know that she's going to give a tour of her panty drawer. She works through a few pair of panties as well as a few sexy tops, including a little black and red fetishy number, while talking about the different moods that go along with her outfits along with a few memories. As they talk the subject turns to giving head in the park, and moments later Donna's dropping down to give head in the room. She takes Austin's mushroom headed cock to the back of her throat several times and bobs up and down on it fast. They mix in a little talk of a blowbang fantasy as she sucks the cock, and finish it up with a nice pop in Donna's mouth that she happily accepts and swallows down.
This is a very nice opening for the movie. Donna shows off plenty of personality and has a great variety in her panty drawer. She also does a great job with the blowjob, and goes at it with plenty of energy and enthusiasm with Austin playing into it with a few comments. This scene lasts nearly a half hour, but that isn't a bad thing here.
|Scene 2 - Donna|
Austin peeks in on Donna as she gets ready wearing only a towel in the bathroom next. She enjoys a little drink as she gets ready and then sits back on the counter to play with her nearly bald pussy. She rubs it a little outside before sliding a finger in. Donna goes back to rubbing her pussy and making plenty of little circles before moving down to the floor to continue while commenting on how she can't look at the camera while playing with herself. She works herself to a few orgasms and then lays back on the floor glowing and looking exhausted.
This is another very nice scene. Donna's playful side nicely comes out to start off the scene, and she really gets into the masturbation. There's no denying her orgasms here, and I love her comments on how the camera affects her sexual moods. This is a great solo scene, and I love the personality that comes out as she gets ready at the start.
|Scene 3 - Donna and Austin|
Donna puts on a long black wig to go with her black lingerie and shows off quickly before crawling over to start sucking Austin's cock. She eagerly sucks and strokes Austin while making plenty of wonderful little noises and giving him some nice eyes. Donna lets him know that she'd like a good buttfucking and heads over to the bed to show him how much he wants it. She lubes up her fingers and his cock, and then gets on all fours to play with her ass to warm it up. They take it a little slow as Austin starts fucking Donna's ass doggie style, and she's quickly moaning in pleasure and satisfaction at taking his big cock up her shitpussy. Austin pulls out so the camera can catch Donna's derrière getting dicked doggie style from behind, and pulls out right away when she expresses some pain. He steps offscreen for a few moments (hopefully to clean up) and finishes things up popping a nice load on her tits and tongue that she once again swallows down.
This is a great final scene. Donna looks great in the wig, and from a couple angles she really reminded me of Juliette Lewis. She also has that playful sparkle in her eye once again that worked so well for me in the rest of the movie. She gets into the cocksucking just as good here as before, and I love her attitude towards the anal. You can see a little discomfort here and there, which is normal for many, but also a great sense of satisfaction that made the scene. This is a very nicely done homemade anal scene.
Donna and Austin 1 is a very nice homemade porn release. Donna has a nice body and face, but better yet, a great spirit. She's nicely playful throughout the movie, but it never feels forced. She's full of smiles and isn't afraid to share how different things make her feel throughout the movie while doing a great job sucking cock and taking it up the ass. I love how the scenes are a bit longer for this release while mixing things up a bit, but at the same time I'm extremely surprised that Donna never takes it in the pussy once the entire movie. This is an observation instead of a complaint of any kind, as I can't remember the last time I've seen a movie with this kind of variety, a definite sense of chemistry that should work for many couples, and anal sex with nothing for the pussy. The only thing that really holds this one back are some of the normal technical things for homemade porn, namely some inconsistent lighting and plenty of horns going off as they get it on outside. Donna and Austin 1 is a nicely solid homemade release.
The Extra StuffAs usual with Shot at Home, there's about a half hour of clips from other Shot at Home releases.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, homemade, tease, oral, swallowing, masturbation, and anal
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Shot at Home's DVDs can be found on their website for around $20. If you like homemade porn, this one's worth the money, and if you're curious about it this is a good place to start. Donna and Austin do a very nice job with both the camera work and mixing up the sex, and the technical aspects are pretty average for homemade porn. There's also a little effort towards the extras, which is all but unheard of for homemade porn outside of Shot at Home. This is a very nice homemade release.
Note to Shot at Home: I hope this isn't a one hit wonder from Donna and Austin!
