Director: Chi Chi LaRue Videographer: Hue Wilde DOP: 09/27/04 Length: 2 hours 20 minutes

Nicole Sheridan hosts, in a non-sex role.
Great camerawork in a wide variety of lighting situations, from a dark den with lava lamps to bright natural light from a window. There's inoffensive background music in each scene that doesn't overwhelm. 4 or 5 chapter stops for each segment makes it easy to navigate, although it probably could have benefited from a 'cumshot recap'.

Wrap it Up : Chi Chi's pro-condom statement
Leave it to Chi Chi LaRue to come up with this idea. Okay, apparently it was tried some years ago, but it might as well be new. As a straight female, one of my big frustrations in watching porn has been the constant focus on the girls, sometimes to the exclusion of any body part except the penis. Understandable since it's made for straight men but even the good looking guys are utilized as little more than dildos, and the only jerking off they do is limited to that desperate 20 seconds marking the end of each scene. That doesn't count.
I've seen some of these guys many times in porn, but I have never seen them looking so hot and sexy. According to Nicole, who's role here is a few lines of dialogue in between scenes that at times had me scratching my head or laughing out loud, they agreed to the project only because they respect and trust Chi Chi enough to do it right. He did.
Str8 Shots is unabashedly targeted to gay men, with no attempt to pass it off as "porn for women", but I appreciate it nonetheless. I found all the guys attractive, and it was a revelation to see that straight guys do indeed masturbate ;)
Big props to all of them for being exhibitionists and open-minded enough to make this video.
Random facts which may or may not be of importance:
Lots of tighty whities & jeans. No thongs, g-strings or jock straps worn.
Mario Rossi spits a lot.
Plenty of tease and rubbing of big bulges.
Julian's Iron Cross belt buckle matches his tattoos.
Nicole said that she prefers a medium 6 or 7 inch cock.
Her husband Voodoo needs both hands to masturbate his.
Youth, model looks, no tattoos, a gorgeous smile and wood.. hey, why isn't Peter Shaft being used more in porn?
Pascal St. James is a very sexy, manly-man.
Nicole said that porn guys are competitive about their cumshot volume, but that it really doesn't matter.
Julian shot a HUGE load all over his chest and abdomen.
Heh heh. Kurt Lockwood said "You like watching me stroke my cock?" Is the pope Catholic, Kurt?
Mario Rossi did his thing on a mirror-topped table.
Franco Del Torro looks like that cute high school kid who lives down the street, but with a bigger unit. I'm just guessing on that last part.
Except for Kurt and Franco they don't talk much, but there's plenty of eye contact with the camera.
Pascal splooged onto the back of a chair.
Nicole, discussing dick size, said "Just go with what feels right for you, and turns you on." Great advice... when shopping for a dildo.
I liked the hanging transparent chair in Peter's scene.
A lot of them did that manuever where they bend their dick forward then let it slap against their belly, what's that called?
Mario, Voodoo, Franco & Rick are uncut.
Kurt squirted onto the camera lens then rubbed it all around with the head of his dick. Nasty! I wonder if Hue was able to clean it? Best Line: Nicole: "There are people out there with cocks who aren't men, and there are men out there without cocks."
I don't even want to hazard a guess as to what that means.
