The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Bouncy is a new studio I havenít heard anything about yet, so Iím going in with an open mind.
Initial Reaction: Skip it!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a different type of interactive release
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a different type of interactive release thatís done well
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is pretty clear and well balanced, but there is a bit of camera noise in the background. The video is nicely lit and almost completely free of grain. Thereís a little camera motion, but never so much as to interfere with the movie.
Menus: The menus are extremely basic. None of them have any animation and if you donít make a selection within about thirty seconds the DVD stops.
The FeatureBrunette Layla has come by to apply for the new secretary job. She wasnít aware that itís a porn company, but is more than willing to try to be multi-talented. The action is split into two different areas, and lets you choose between interactive sex or the interactive job interview and job.
The virtual secretary part of the feature gives you five different choices. You can interview Layla, hire her, make her work, train her, or make her strip by making a selection from a menu screen. After you make your selection, youíre given a video segment lasting between roughly two and six and a half minutes. Basically, all it ends up being is a twenty minute scene thatís chopped into five pieces. You have no control over what questions are asked at the interview, and it works in a little light masturbation during the work segment. As it moves into the training things take on a domination aspect with Layla looking like the slightest hint of a shiny object would completely distract her.
I absolutely hated the virtual secretary part of this release. The interactive aspect of it seems gimmicky and takes what could be a decent scene and ruins it by chopping it up as much as it does. Itís all shot from Tyís point of view, and the camera work is a bit shaky. It really draws things out at a few early points, and had me bored and rolling my eyes before I was five minutes into this section due to both the technical side of things and Laylaís performance. Layla doesnít do anything for me, and strikes me as the airheaded California beach babe who in her heart and soul is a complete blonde. Her performance here was so painful that my eyes ached, and I couldnít help but hope that somebody sneaks a few spikes into her shoulder pads to do away with her. This section was so bad it was painful.
The sexual section follows the same style. Youíre given a plain menu with a list of choices including groping, eating her pussy, watching her play with herself, a blowjob, fucking her in missionary, cowgirl, or doggie, and having Layla swallow your load. Groping lets you work her hands around Layla including fingering her pussy for about four minutes and watching her play gives you about six minutes of Layla playing with a large dildo. The pussy eating is your standard laughable minute and three quarters. Layla does a good job with the blowjob, including giving a few smiles, working some great eyes, and sucking balls and eating ass on command for about seven and a half minutes. The fucking lasts between two and four minutes, with Layla doing a pretty good job with her vocals and energy level. Finally, the swallow sequence lasts about a minute and a half with Layla taking a nice facial and swallowing it down. Thereís an okay group of choices for you to make your selection from here.
The ďvirtual sexĒ portion of the release works much better, but is far from average for virtual sex. When Layla gets a chance to suck cock or get fucked she does a nice job, and looks like sheís having a good time. I was really able to get into her blowjob and the fucking sequences were almost as good. She also does a great job collecting Tyís seed in her mouth and swallowing it down. That said, the segments are far from well done. Layla falls down like she did in the first portion of the DVD when she has to interact with Ty rather than just his cock, and none of the segments loop. This gives them a very cut off feeling, especially for the fucking sequences. Seven minutes of oral for the blowjob can be lived with, but just under two minutes of fucking in a position before youíre returned to the menu just doesnít cut it!
My Virtual Secretary Layla has an okay idea to set it apart from the rest of the virtual sex titles out there, but it just doesnít come through. I think the main thing that holds it back is director / cock Ty Endicott. When Layla can just fuck and suck him, she does a nice job. When she has to interact with Ty, like she does throughout the secretary portion of the release, I couldnít help but want to volunteer to be a test dummy in a car crash simulation to keep from watching more. The virtual and interactive facet of the release is also a borderline joke. Yes, you get to decide what happens, but more than anything itís just a fancy chapter menu that keeps interfering with the action. Thereís no looping to make it a really virtual experience, and you have no way to control the action outside of the huge and interfering menus. As it is, My Virtual Secretary Layla leaves most everything to be desired and feels like it would have been much better as a standard scene with a long tease intro as part of a larger release.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Smokiní Blowjobs 1, Smokiní POV 1, Worship This Bitch, Smokiní POV 2, and My Virtual Secretary Layla. The photo gallery includes about fifty nice looking snapshots. Thereís also Gogoextreme and an interview with Layla.
The interview with Layla lasts about two minutes, with about a minute and a quarter being the interview and the other forty-five seconds being credits for the movie. Layla talks about shooting with Bouncy and how it was different from the other shoots sheís done. She comes off as an airhead who puts down most of the porn being made while all but sucking Ty Endicott and Bouncyís cock. She tries to look intelligent talking about bringing more psychology into porn and I couldnít help but wonder how much prompting and practice it took her to use such a big word. Itís a laughable interview that added virtually nothing to the overall package.
Gogo Extreme lasts about four and a quarter minutes. With it, the screen is split into six frames and youíre basically shown the entire movie at once. Itís not what Iíd call a good extra, and although the idea might almost seem good on paper, once itís actually seen in reality I hope somebody got slapped for coming up with it. This is a waste of DVD space.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interactive, masturbation, tease, domination, toys, oral, rimming (female > male), and swallowing
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Bouncyís DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $24 with a few stores offering them under the $20 range. Rent this one if you have to see it. The virtual portion ranges from lacking to downright annoying and poor. The technical aspects are okay, and thereís nothing too special for extras. This is a below average DVD release.
Note to Bouncy Pictures: Itís great that you want to do something different with the secretary angle. It would be much better if you could figure out how to do the technology right and could afford to hire some decent male talent.
