|Where to buy:||DVD Rent|
This DVD turned out to be a bit of a disappointment, after reading the glowing reviews of the first one in the series. We see short pieces of Misty Rain sightseeing in Paris, visiting a sex shop, eating at restaurants, and showing us the house she is staying in, interspersed with sex scenes featuring Misty and a few French and American performers, and one flashily edited sequence where she is on stage at a trade show. The sex scenes have little to do with the non-sex scenes, they are just stuck together. I think my biggest problem is the disjointed feeling, there is no continuity. Also, I do not find some of the performers appealing, which also can skew my judgement. On re-viewing the sex scenes, I found many of them to be better than I remembered, so I suppose my initial impression might have been too negative.
Misty is probably the worst tour guide ever, when she does her Valley Girl commentary from a L'OpenTour bus. "Musée d'Orsay, I guess that's the music hall." Is she joking or what? These "trashy American tourists in Paris" parts of this video managed to turn me off to the whole thing on first viewing. Better to skip those if you are like me in that respect.
On the other hand, those bits are hardly the reason for people to buy or rent these things. The sex, taken objectively, is not that bad. It is less nasty than in other similar videos I have seen. There is no anal in the first few scenes, and no DP's at all, if that's what you were looking for. In some scenes, condoms are used during penetration.
Technically, the DVD is fine. The transfer is good, and the only problems concern the lighting of the scenes (sometimes the light levels go wrong because of background light, such as open windows, and the action is too dark) and placement of microphones, which may pick up unnecessary noise. The extras are good in principle: ther's the usual photo gallery, and "Meet the Stars" and "Behind the scenes" sections, as well as some bloopers. However, in the "Meet the stars" section, which contains interviews with most of the performers, the interviews are shown in a small window, as if in a camera display, and cannot be shown fullscreen. I do not see the point of that, except that someone thought that it would look "cool".
In a garden, Misty is lying in a lawn chair, and Titof joins him. They kiss, and she goes for his cock, and the usual sex scene follows. A condom is used for vaginal penetration. There is no anal. He jerks off on her face. Nice enough scene, but nothing spectacular.
The second scene is with American blonde April and Chad Thomas. The Chad looks like he could have a career in horror movies, with all the scar patterns he has on his face and elsewhere. Plus he has the biggest cockhead ever.
Beauty and the Beast
The scene is actually quite hot, with enthusiastic deep-throating followed by intense vaginal pounding (condom is used) and a final face-fucking, but really, with a guy who looks like this, it's "Beauty and the beast". April has a taste for sex and good-looking body. Just look at her intense facial expressions.

In the third scene, Misty is joined by Ovidie and Angela Tiger for some girl- girl action, including deep fingering and both vaginal and anal strap-on fucking. There is also a dual-action dildo, which Misty uses on Ovidie: this thing has two dicks, one for each hole. This is a pretty good girlie scene. If you pay attention, you'll notice a nasty-looking bruise and cut on Misty's thigh. I wonder how she got that.
Girls at play
Next, Angela Tiger and Lou Valmont team up with Chad and Kevin Long. This scene heats up quite a bit towards the end, when the girls get butt-banged in stereo, which makes them yelp and scream quite a lot. (I bet you would scream too, if you had the Chad's monster-knob at your backdoor.) The intensity makes this a contender for the best scene on this DVD.
Is Angela pregnant?
Kevin ends up gooing Lou's face fairly spectacularly. This is the only visually good facial in the whole DVD, unfortunately. Chad has less force and volume in his ejaculation, which was evident already in scene 2.
Say "Aaah!", part 4 - Lou gets it in her eye
The final scene is a mini-gangbang with Nataly Dune, Ian Scott, Kevin Long, and Pascal White. I did not find it that interesting, but there is plenty of anal action. No DP's or amything very kinky, so it's more of a gangbang lite. The guys attempt to cream her face simultaneously in the end, but end up mis-aiming their popshots so that the facial goo factor ends up pretty low.
Erm, what's that white patch on his ass?
I have mixed feelings about this DVD. On the one hand, this is not very good structurally, the scenes are just stuck together. For example Seymore Butts and Shane have managed to create some kind of narrative continuity in their gonzo stuff. Because the World Wide Sex series was supposed to be a kind of travelogue, I expected this to be like that as well. That, and my dislike for the vacuous style of the non-sex parts, colored my impression on first viewing so that I ended up basically hating the whole DVD. The fact that I found some of the performers (Chad Thomas, Nataly Dune) to be less than attractive did not help.
Taken individually, most of the sex scenes are pretty good, if not exactly exceptional. The "raincoat factor" is sort of low to middling, it's sort of woman-friendly hardcore. There is little to complain about the technical quality of the DVD, although my computer's DVD drive seems to have some problems with it, causing the whole system to hang occasionally.
