The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Hmmmmm. Thereís a lot about this release that wants to give me hope, but with how horrible Security Cam Chronicles Vol. 1 and how much it wasnít what it was supposed to be I canít help but be more than a little leery here.
Initial Reaction: It needs work, but is pretty impressive for a first time interactive release.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting virtual Shy
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a top notch interactive release
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is nicely done. Shy comes across clearly throughout the segments and I didnít notice any background noises. Although the video may have bene shot in High Definition, its potential isnít close to being utilized as the release is presented with a non-anamorphic transfer. It also has a touch of pixelation to it, but is nicely lit.
Menus: Shy nicely starts things off dancing slowly in a white shirt and lingerie while talking about the choices to her right. It gives a very nice first impression.
The FeatureIt didnít take Shy Love long to get noticed when she started in the jizz biz. With long shapely legs, big tits, a pretty face, and a love to take it in the ass, it doesnít take a masterís degree to figure out why sheís had a good following. Here she teams up with Andre Madness for the first interactive release from Madness Pictures.
Shy gives you plenty of choices throughout the release, as well as two true angles to choose from through all of it. If you want her to tease you, sheíll let you choose between her ass, tits, feet, and pussy or will even choose one herself if you donít feel like putting any deep thought into the subject. If you want Shy to masturbate for you, sheíll use either her fingers or a toy, and may even cum when you want her to. When it comes to foreplay, thereís options for both ďyouĒ and Shy. ďYouĒ get the option of eating her pussy, and Shy will give ďyouĒ a handjob, titty fuck you, suck your cock, or work on it with her feet. As for the sex, Shy lets you choose between her pussy and ass for missionary, cowgirl, and doggie. Shy gives you all the virtual choices youíve come to expect, as well as a couple more.
For her part, Shy does a nice job. She focuses on the camera nicely throughout the segments, but at times it got a little scary because she rarely seems to blink. She does a very nice job of playing to the camera, both physically and vocally, and came across as sexy but realistic. Her vocals are very nice, and she mixes in little things like encouraging you to stroke yourself while watching her take care of herself. She looks fantastic in the few outfits she wears,
Technically, Cum Play With Me leaves a bit to be desired. To start with, thereís the menu choices. Theyíre lined up on the right side of the screen in a contrasting color thatís very easy to see. This is normally a good thing, but here theyíre so big and stand out so much that my eye was frequently drawn away from Shy and to the menu instead. It also makes the screen look slightly cluttered by having things like two angle indicators. Thereís a little text that says ďAngle XĒ that lets you know which of the two angles youíre viewing as well as having ďAngleĒ and ď1 / 2" below it where you can click on either number to view that angle. This isnít a bad idea, but being that you can do that with the remote you have in your hand almost the entire time you watch this release it seems more than a little redundant. The only really good thing I can say about the menu is that itís located to where it rarely covers up much of Shy. The menus definitely need to be trimmed back.
The other technical feature here that needs work is the segments themselves. The segments range from about two and a half minutes to about four and a half minutes, with the orgasm sequences frequently lasting about a minute. Thatís a nice length, but there are several problems with them. To start with, the camera angle doesnít always go with a POV angle for the main angle, such as when it goes at about a forty five degree angle from the penetration for the doggie fucking. The looping is also a problem. Although Shy does a nice job with a short introduction to each segment and puts a little effort in to bring each segment to a close, they loop completely. This means there are problems at both ends. With an interactive release, I want to feel in control. If I want to watch Shy tease me with her tits, I donít want to see her strip down and listen to her give her introduction every time the segment starts over, and I sure donít want to see that after Shy says something about being done. Itís even worse if thereís an orgasm sequence available for a segment, as it automatically moves through the orgasm and then goes back to the start.
Speaking of orgasms, each and every one of them here is the real deal. That doesnít mean, however, that theyíre all unique. Tommy Gunn provides the cock for Shy to work on, and he gives her a real pop for each sex position as well as the foreplay segments. He lets Shy have a facial thatís reused for each foreplay option with Shy giving, and a pop for missionary, cowgirl, and doggie that gets used for both the vaginal action and the anal action. Itís handled pretty well for the fuck sequences, but itís more than a little obvious that itís being reused for the foreplay segments. Iím thrilled that Shy and Madness decided to use all real pops, and I have to give Tommy a lot of credit for being able to unload four times. The pops would be great if it werenít quite so obvious that the sequences were being reused.
Although Cum Play With Me has plenty of faults, I canít help but think that itís a pretty impressive initial virtual sex release. Shy does a very nice job of trying to make the interactive experience as personal as possible, and for the most part, the camera work is nicely done. I also like the widescreen format and that real popshots were used for every orgasm sequence. Unfortunately, the technical design of Cum Play With Me holds things back by badly looping the segments and working the orgasms into each loop rather than making them just on call. Cum Play With Me has some decent sized problems for an interactive release, but shows enough potential that if Madness Pictures can fix them in their next interactive release theyíre really going to turn out a great release.
The Extra StuffTo start with, you get a few extra virtual options with Shy. Thereís also behind the scenes types of options such as a photo shoot featurette, an interview with Shy, and outtakes. The slide show lasts roughly four minutes with about six seconds per very nice looking snapshot that peels away very well. Trailers are included for Cum Play with Me, 12 Nasty Girls Masturbating 4, Ass Driven 2, 12 Cum Hungry Cocksuckers, Security Cam Chronicles, Malibuís Most Latin, Getting Stoned 2, and Valley Girls 2. Thereís also credits and weblinks.
To start off the major extras, you get three extra virtual options with Shy, complete with two different angles. First, you can spank Shy, which lasts about two minutes. Sheíll also strip for you, which lasts nearly six minutes as she works out of her outfit from the main menu and dances around a chair as you hope and pray that Shy comes to a strip club near you. You can also massage Shyís ass, tits, or feet for between two and a half to three and three quarter minutes. Itís a very nice collection of segments, and they each make a nice extra. The only complaint I can think of having here is that when each segment finishes it just loops back to the start rather than going to somewhere in the middle to keep the segment flowing better.
The outtakes last about seven minutes. After an interview from the ďnewĒ Shy, the old Shy does a little dance and goofs off a bit. You get to hear about Tommyís finger and some of his scars, see Shy go swimming, and see Shy mess up her lines. Thereís also more than a little fun from on the set. Itís a great collection of outtakes thatís fun and gives plenty of personality.
The interview with Shy Love lasts about four and a half minutes. Shy starts out talking about doing an auction for a date with her to coincide with the DVD with all proceeds going to a cancer society, which is pretty darn cool. She talks about how fans can contact her and find out more about her, as well as being a dork. Shy talks about how she got into the business, why thereís an anal section in the video, her crew for the movie, and her appreciation for her fans. Itís a pretty good interview thatís worth checking out if you want to learn a bit about Shy.
The photo shoot featurette lasts nearly fifteen minutes. This featurette is simply Shy posing and being posed for her still photos with some slightly shaky camera work. This featurette got very long for me, mostly because thereís no music so you donít get to hear if Shyís joking around or any other comments that are happening.
The featurettes are all presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. In the middle of the right side of the screen you have the option to go back to either the extras menu or the main menu. This is an okay idea, but the placement is horrible and makes one wonder why somebody didnít decide to put them down in the black bars. The links to the main and extra menus interfered with each of the featurettes for me.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interactive, tease, masturbation, toys, hand job, foot job, blow job, titty fucking, and anal
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, Cum Play With Me can be found online for between about $14 and $25, with a few stores offering it at the low end. If youíre a big Shy Love fan the low end is probably going to be a good deal, but others will probably want to rent this one first. Shy does a nice job, but technically the DVD lacks. The audio and video are nicely done, and thereís some extremely nice effort put into the extras. Cum Play With Me shows some good potential, but just isnít quite to the great interactive DVD level.
Note to Madness: You showed some nice care for a first time interactive release. If you tweak things a little for your next one it should definitely be worth checking out.
