Title: My Playtoy #3
Released by: Smash Pictures/Digital Skin
Reviewed by MD James
"My Playtoys" should be the correct title of this interactive sex simulator, because here you get TWO sex simulators for the price of one.
Now when this reviewer saw that this DVD featured both Lauren Phoenix and Adult DVD Talkís own celebrity reviewer Selena Silver, I knew I had to check this one out, and I certainly wasnít disappointed with what I saw.
First things first: kudos to Smash Pictures/Digital Skin for NOT force-feeding us trailers when the DVD starts! Instead, right after the prerequisite FBI warning, we go right to the title scene, featuring both lovely ladies. Sadly, though, this is the ONLY time that you will see both women at the same time.
Once you get past lengthy intro video, you get to the main menu. Sadly, there are not many options here. Click on Start and you go right to Selena playing with herself in "nice" mode. There are no pretenses or games to play to get to the sex on this DVD, which is another big plus. But, you know, if you think itís a little too forward to start off with some masturbation, you can always check out a nice little striptease featuring either lady and then go back to the naughty stuff.
Both Lauren and Selena are hot in this video! And it doesnít matter what position theyíre in, they make you feel like theyíre really into it.
There are two menu bars in the simulator that stay on no matter what. The top menu handles the general acts, and here you start out with masturbation, hand job, blowjob, foot job, sex acts, and then striptease. The bottom menu gives you specific options for each act. So, for instance, for sex acts, you have missionary, missionary anal, doggie, doggie anal, reverse cowgirl and reverse cowgirl anal. The four standard menu options here are the nice and naughty dispositions, the "cum-on-queue" feature where you pop on her, and "Insta-switch", where you change girls. So instead of having Selena take it up the ass, Lauren picks up right where Selena left off. Nice feature.
Unfortunately this simulator is far from perfect. There are plenty of technical errors here.
For starters, you cannot choose which girl to start out with. You automatically start with Selena, and you start with her masturbating. Ideally, you should be able to pick which girl to start with, and to start off with the striptease, not have it as an afterthought. The "naughty or nice" option really isnít one for either girl in some of the positions. You have one disposition and thatís it. The pop shot is also limited in some positions, and in those instances, itís just a pop shot featuring Lauren, not Selena.
I like the fact that the pop-shot takes you to another sex scene if you do nothing, but there are no options to do anything. This is where you should have the option to exit the simulation, but it isnít there. Instead, the option to exit (via the end credits) is located in the striptease section. This also contributes to the idea that the striptease feature was just an afterthought. Selena is seen wearing a second outfit in the title video (and she looks hot wearing it), but itís not one that you will see her wear in the actual simulation.
And then there is the most glaring absent optionÖ you have two women in a sex simulator, but you canít choose to have them BOTH! Itís one or the other. I realize that it may take a little more work, but it would be interesting to see a two-on-one blowjob, or even watch a girl-girl scene with the two women.
In terms of extras, this DVD is somewhat limited. You have a photo gallery of the two women, both together, and from the action shots taken during production. Then there is the "Behind The Scenes" segment, which starts with an eighteen-minute video of the things that went on during the making of the video (including celebrating Selenaís 25th birthday). Then there is an interview with Selena, where you see her once again wear that white outfit and talking about how she got in the industry. This was clearly done before any shooting began. Then you go to Laurenís interview, which was done right after Selenaís birthday party and still in the middle of doing the video. And then we have the quick video of the photo shoot itself. Theyíre all nice features, but theyíre all combined into ONE segment. Each of these things - the behind-the-scenes video, the two interviews, and the photo shoot video - should have been given their own segments on the DVD.
All in all, this would have been a top-rate sex simulator if the folks at Smash Pictures/Digital Skin spent a little more time on the post-production. But what they have is still pretty hot, especially if youíre a fan of either of the women. And of course there is the fact that you get TWO sex simulators for the price of one, which is still a pretty good deal in this reviewerís opinion.
