The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Ariana is fantastic to watch. Anarchy is a lying pile of steaming shit. I think I know which oneís going to come out on top, and Iíll be surprised if itís the one we all want to.
Initial Reaction: I canít help but wonder how much hotter this would have been done as a regular scene...
Who Should Watch It : Extreme Ariana fans
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting anything close to decent virtual sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is clear, but the balance falters a little and thereís a couple background noises. The video is pretty good. Thereís barely any grain, but it appears that thereís a natural light used which occasionally bleaches out the colors. Thereís also a fair amount of camera motion.
Music: Thereís some cheesy porno music that dominates the audio during the opening tease.
Bullshit, Borderline, and Boneheaded Advertising: The front cover makes claims of Various Angles, Extremely Interactive, Strip Tease, Tease Menu, Shot Exclusively for DVD, Point of View (P.O.V.) and Different Sex Positions. Anarchy is getting better with their claims here, but theyíre still not quite honest and continue their string of penalties against the overall score with another half point penalty here. For bullshit claims, as usual, thereís no tease menu. You can choose whether Ariana gets fingered or toed or diddles herself, but thereís nothing to let you choose something like whether Ariana teases you with her great natural rack or amazing ass. Thereís also no strip tease. Yes, Ariana does do a tease, but she keeps her clothes on and just lifts up her skirt to show off her ass. Itís a nice show but itís far from a strip tease.
Surprisingly, thereís only one borderline claim, that of the POV claim. Yes, there is some POV footage, but itís definitely in the minority of footage. As usual, Anarchy has a major problem with being completely honest.
Finally, thereís the boneheaded claims. Top of the list is Various Angles. Yes, it is still nice to see that they dumped the completely bullshit Multiple Angles claim that they used until earlier this year, but this just seems stupid. POV is something most people consider very important for a virtual sex release, and they state that too later in the list on the front cover. It makes the POV claim borderline bullshit with the amount of it they include as well as redundant. Shot Exclusively for DVD? That might mean something if there were ďInteractive VHSĒ releases being made. Finally, thereís whatís becoming my favorite boneheaded claim: Different Sex Positions. Iím not sure what theyíre different from, since virtually every other interactive sex DVD Iíve seen includes doggie, missionary, and the cowgirls. Maybe Anarchy wants people to think that it means that thereís more than one position. This doesnít seem like something a company would want to advertise. First, if the consumer puts any thought into it, they should ask the question of how many of Anarchyís movies only use one sex position if they have to advertise having more than one here. Second, they should ask how few positions are actually used here if theyíre actually branching out to use more than one. Once again, Anarchy has continued to try to deceive the people who buy their DVDs while also showing why you should never play football without a helmet.
Menus: The main menu gives a few clips of Ariana in action with the choices in the lower right corner of the screen. Itís not exactly impressive.
The FeatureRoughly a year ago Anarchy appeared to have changed from having a so-called virtual line called the My Virtual... to Playing With..., and kicked it off with Playing with Ariana Jollee. Ariana seemed like a no brainer to everybody with her beautiful looks, energetic fucks, and natural nastiness. Here she appears to let Anarchy fuck up some footage she had taken of her with the wildman Nacho Vidal.
Ariana lets it all out here. She quickly gets a little tease out of the way before working on herself with her fingers. No only does she make herself squirt, but she manages to cram several fingers in her ass. She lets Nacho play with her pussy using both his fingers and toes before sucking his cock and getting in plenty of throat action. When it comes time to fuck, Ariana doesnít waste a lot of time with Nachoís dick in her pussy doggie style before letting him slide it into her ass. Ariana continues to have Nacho ream her rectum as she lies on her stomach, bounces on him in both cowgirls, and lets him fuck her missionary style. Finally, Ariana appears to take a cream pie to finish things before sending her fingers after it and licking them clean.
For her part, Ariana does a fantastic job. She looks completely into everything that Nacho was doing to her, and put out tons of energy. Sheís nicely vocal and puts her ass on the line without so much as blinking an eye. My only complaint here is the cream pie finish, as thereís a camera edit before itís shown. As much as Iíd like to believe itís real, I just canít help but doubt it with how many times Iíve seen cream pies faked like this. Ariana puts out every bit as hot of a performance as one would expect.
Sadly, Anarchy does every bit the job one would expect as well. Needless to say, this definitely holds back the movie and made me wish that it was edited out like a real scene rather than hacked apart for this version, which is done so poorly that I wouldnít even call it a bastardized virtual sex release because that would be too insulting to bastardized virtual sex releases. As usual, thereís no looping and instead youíre supposed to consider this virtual sex because thereís a chapter menu that lists the sex acts in the upper right corner. Itís easy to read, but also covers up the action repeatedly throughout the movie. Once again, Anarchy should be taken out and beaten for referring to this as a virtual sex simulator.
Playing with Ariana Jollee 2 is a release that seems geared towards Ariana Jollee fanboys. Itís not a bad idea, as she has definitely earned a large following with plenty of extremely hot performances and one would hope that Anarchy would have learned something since Playing with Ariana Jollee. She adds another great performance to that list here, but I really canít encourage anybody to pick this one up. As a virtual release, this one is yet another joke, and in some ways I donít think it even holds up against the original release. At least Playing with Ariana Jollee lasted well over an hour, as compared to this one which barely makes a half hour. Gee, if you throw in the behind the scenes featurette you get an entire forty minutes of action! Whoopie freakiní do! In this case, maybe that should be whoopie freakiní doo doo, as I really canít help but think of this as a piece of crap even with the job Ariana did. This scene does not deserve to be associated with virtual sex in any way. Thereís plenty of passion and energy between Nacho and Ariana, and if a competent editor was given the footage to this scene I have very little doubt that he or she would be able to turn out a fantastic fuck scene that would have the high probability of being the highlight of a movie. As a half hour scene, however, it isnít so strong to be the entire movie. Ariana Jollee has shown some fantastic footwear in her movies. I hope that after seeing Playing with Ariana Jollee 2 that she planted a few pairs of that fantastic footwear in the soft parts of several people at Anarchy.
The Extra StuffThe usual five trailers are included, along with internet information. Th photo gallery lasts a little over a minute with about three seconds per decent looking snapshot, many of which appear to come from other Anarchy releases. Thereís also a featurette to get to know Ariana.
The Get to Know Ariana featurette lasts about six minutes. Ariana explains her tattoo and talks about her love for her fans and finally being able to fuck Nacho for about the first minute and a half. The remaining for and a half minutes are of Ariana washing up in the shower without saying or doing anything. Arianaís got a great body, but the segment seems pretty dead with the exception of her coming out to stick her tongue out at the camera and make a funny face. I think this would have been a much better featurette if the last three minutes were chopped off.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, masturbation, squirting,
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of the Playing with series can be found online for between about $13 and $25 with several stores offering it near the low end. Donít even think of paying that here. The sex is good, but itís poorly edited and doesnít last much over a half hour. The technical aspects are pretty good, but thereís not much effort put into the extras. This is a poor DVD.
Note to Anarchy: Itís nice to see you cutting back on the deceptive cover claims. I hope that I live to one day see you be completely honest with the people who are interested in your movies.
