Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting short scenes
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a DVD where it looks like the company cares about their product
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are fairly poor. The audio is decently balanced, and I didn't really notice any background noises to interfere with the action. The video is presented in the full frame format, and showed very little effort. It's overly dark and the grain shows some of the age of the film. This is a very poor looking movie that holds the action back almost constantly.
Music: The music feels like it comes out of the seventies, but it isn't nearly as annoying as some classic porn music. It's also very nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
Disc Complaints: The authoring for this DVD is easily some of the worst I've seen in a few years. Not only is there no time stamp, but the movie is divided into two titles (the first being about forty four minutes and the second being thirty minutes). Once you start the second title the only way to get back to the first is through the horribly poor main menu or knowing what title and chapter to jump to with your remote. If that isn't enough, although there are nine sex scenes there are only five chapters total between the two titles making up the movie. This means that you have no way to get to a specific scene you want to watch later or anything else without scanning through the movie. I think that it might be possible to train monkeys to author DVDs better than Caballero has done here.
Menus: The main menu would be considered weak if this movie had been one of the first handful of DVDs released rather than being released after several years of studios competing and improving their products. All if gives is a few stills and the choices. The chapter menu is just as generic, and just lets you choose a scene based on a text of “Scene 1”, “Scene 2”, etc.
The FeatureSissy's Hot Summer plays as a movie version of the classic seventies sit-com 3's Company. Here it's the nightly feature for Candida's Sex Show, where it gets interrupted by Candida pimping their sponsor's products.
|Scene 1 – Sharon Kane and Tony Bond|
Blonde Sharon starts things out lying back and getting pumped by Tony missionary style. She gets on top to ride him cowgirl style before hopping off to suck his cock. Sharon asks him to tie her up a bit, and although Tony's a little nervous at first he ties her arms to her legs and then licks her pussy. Sharon has him fuck her from behind, and then lets him pop in her mouth.
This is a pretty hot scene. There's nice chemistry between Sharon and Tony and they mix things up nicely. I really like Sharon asking to be tied up, and also like how she stays tied up while they fuck. The scene moves along nicely, and it works well. This is a pretty hot scene and a nice start for the movie.
|Scene 2 – Mimi Morgan and Johnny Hardin|
When landlord Johnny lets brunette Mimi know that rent's due, he also lets her know that the plumbing's been costing him a bunch. She lets him know that she can fix his plumbing, and when he takes her into the basement to show her some pipes she drops to her knees to show him the type of pipe she knows about. She sucks and strokes him until he pops on her face.
This is a decent oral scene. It's short and sweet, but that's just about right for what it is. The camera work isn't bad for the scene but it is a bit dark. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 3 – Aubry Nichols and Tony Bond|
Tony hooks up with hot auburn haired Aubry in an adult hotel where they can watch themselves fuck on TV. He starts out a bit shy under a sheet which Aubrey pulls back to see what he brings to the party. Tony goes to work licking her pussy as she lies back on the bed for him before getting up to fuck her missionary style. He comes up to fuck Aubry's face and finally gives her a nice man-milk mustache.
This is a hot scene. It's quite short, but also has a very fun feeling to it. The chemistry isn't bad between Tony and Aubry, but it's good enough for how long this scene lasts. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 4 – Sharon Kane and John Holmes|
Sharon returns to take on John, who's a bit on the rough side and wants to play Tarzan. After he jumps down in his loincloth she goes to work sucking his cock. John drops down to fuck her through the hammock she sits on from below before coming up to fuck her missionary style. Finally he pops on her stomach and kisses her tits.
This is a fun scene. Once again the positions are a bit limited, but there's a great fun feeling to the scene. Both John and Sharon toss out plenty of very amusing lines, and there's more than a few laughs. This is a fun little scene with some pretty good sex to go along with the jokes.
|Scene 5 – Mimi Morgan and Jeff Scott|
Mimi returns to take on shy Jeff in what looks to be a cheap hotel room. He quickly climbs under the covers, but she strips them off along with his underwear before learning that he's a virgin and doesn't know anything. She starts things out going down on him before having him fuck her missionary style. Jeff also takes Mimi doggie style before popping on her ass.
This is a pretty good scene. It's short and sweet, and once again has a touch of humor to go with it. The scene moves along pretty fast, but with a “virgin” in the scene it isn't too much of a surprise for the action to move along quickly. In fact, with a “virgin” in the scene it's a bit of a relief to see it move along quickly rather than having it last for a half hour. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 6 – Lauren Dominique and Tony Bond|
Tony picks up good looking brunette Dominique in a bar next. They head somewhere where she fucks him reverse cowgirl style before they exchange oral favors. They get in a little doggie fucking by a piano before they finish things up without Tony giving a visible pop.
This is another enjoyable scene. Tony throws in some good humor as he fucks her and I like how they mix up the oral and the fucking. This is a pretty hot and very enjoyable scene.
|Scene 7 – Lisa K. Loring and Sharon Kane|
Sharon finds somebody willing to get a little rough with her with brunette Lisa. Lisa slaps her to the bed and ties her up as Sharon smiles naughtily before working her over with her tongue and fingers down below. Lisa move up and straddles Sharon's face for her to lick her pussy. Finally the scene comes to an abrupt end feeling like there's plenty more to go.
This scene has potential, but doesn't do much with it. I love Sharon's naughty smile as she gets tied up and thrown onto the bed, but beyond that the action is pretty average. The ending doesn't do anything to help the scene, and helped it to end on a lower level than what it was moving along at. This scene ends up just below the average level.
|Scene 8 – Susan Nero and Johnny Hardin|
After getting some rent money. Johnny's surprised to find his wife Susan stripping down and wanting some sweet, sweet loving inside. She goes right to sucking his cock into her throat before getting on all fours so he can fuck her doggie style. Johnny doesn't need much pumping before he blows his load over Susan's back.
This is an okay scene. It's very short and sweet, and left me wanting a lot more. Susan's darn good looking and has a fantastic rack, and I really wanted to see it put to use on Johnny's cock. Having a blowjob, one position to fuck and going out didn't do much for me either, and left this entire scene coming out a bit on the short end.
|Scene 9 – Mimi Morgan, Sharon Kane, and Tony Bond|
Mimi and Sharon take to the bathroom to work themselves over with vibrators before heading to the living room to talk about their sexual experiences and get it on with each other. As Sharon goes to work on his cock orally and mixes in a little love for his toes, Mimi moves over to ride his tongue. She even leans forward to suck him a bit before moving down to ride him reverse cowgirl style as Sharon sucks her tits and licks her pussy. Tony also fucks Mimi doggie style before he pops on her back and ass.
This is a pretty good scene. It starts out with a very good group feeling of everybody being into everybody else, but then it trickles off by having Tony only fuck Mimi and not Sharon. They do all seem to be into each other and having fun, but the sex being limited to Tony and Mimi fucking really held the scene back. This is an okay scene that had more potential than it used.
Sissy's Hot Summer is an okay classic porno that plays decently with the 3's Company theme. It has some of the feel that makes classic porn fun, and the cast seems to have fun with it. Although it was fun to see Sharon Kane in her very early years, the movie's limitations seem a bit stronger. The scenes are all very short and although I know that sex in the real world for many people doesn't last nearly as long as it does in modern porn, here it seems shorter than ever. I know Candida Royalle was a big draw years ago (and for some, her movies still are), but here she seems more like a hook to draw in porn fans than anything. She acts as nice eye candy in the movie, but doesn't do anything more than that. Considering that she got top billing for the movie, I can see many Candida fans being a bit ticked off with this one (especially since her being billed right up with John Holmes gives a bit of hope of her really taking on a cock). The video looks like it hasn't been given any effort since it was shot nearly thirty years ago, and unfortunately holds it back beyond the dark lighting. I wanted to like Sissy's Hot Summer, but there just wasn't enough that was done well enough to really care about it much.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery contains an entire eight screen captures that advance automatically roughly every four seconds. There's also some boxcovers if you're wondering about other potentially poorly made DVDs as well as website information and commercials.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, classic, B&D (light), oral, lesbian, toys, and group
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Caballero's classic porn releases can be found online for between about $7 and $10. Even at this low of a price I can't get too excited about this release. The movie isn't bad, but the technical aspects are weak and the overall authoring are horrible. There's also no real effort put into the extras. This is an easy DVD to skip past.
Note to Caballero: If this is going to be the kind of effort you put into your products, please stop putting them out!
