The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Digital Playground's virtual sex line has been an industry standard for quite a while, but it's lack of growth as a product has left me feeling a bit wishy washy on it. I have hope for this one, but I'm just not sure how much.
Initial Reaction: It might be short on extras, but it's still one heck of a hot virtual sex release!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting well done virtual sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting extras
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are darn good. The audio is perfect with the exception of a low flying place during the innocent footjob and a little microphone noise during the blowjob. The video starts off very rough. Normally one has to look awfully hard to see a flaw in the video for a Digital Playground release, but the opening segment is extremely pixelated as well as being jerky as they reverse footage to play for time. Thankfully the rest of it isn't so bad. There's no camera motion, it's lit nicely, and I could barely see a sign of grain. It's also very nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen, which makes the presentation very nice because it uses the extra width to lay out the choices while Mercedez is framed in the middle.
Music: The standard music is included for the striptease segment, and is nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
Menus: The menus have kept with the usual format for this series. The main menu features Mercedez standing and waiting while you make your choice on the menu below to start with. The sex selection menu then works itself around the edges of the screen with icons so large that there’s some talk of giving them actually influence the tides.
The FeatureAfter doing over two dozen movies for Vivid, Mercedez has broken out and is going straight to Digital Playground for one of the top virtual sex lines out there. Mercedez is a smoking hot Latino with big fat titties, a great ass, a pretty face, dark sparkling eyes, and a couple of tasteful tattoos. If that isn't enough, she's also giving up her ass, which she rarely seemed to do with that other company, as she lets you fantasize about controlling the action with her.
Digital Playground keeps the exact same format as all their other Virtual Sex With... releases, starting with Mercedez standing in front of a black background looking quite hot in a sexy black and red bra with red and see-through black panties giving you the choice between having her strip, tell stories, or go right to the foreplay or sex. For the strip tease, the camera pans around Mercedez’s magnificent body for about four minutes as she runs her hands around it talking dirty. Unlike most strip tease segments, this one has an editing cut or two, but they're easily forgivable and don't really interfere with the action at all. Mercedez starts out her virtual sex romp quite nicely with this segment.
Mercedez will also tell a few sex stores. She talks about her first lesbian experience, her wildest sex story, and her favorite positions. It lasts about two and a half minutes with Mercedez dancing in front of the green wall of flame as she strips down and teases. It's a nice little segment that continues Mercedez' tease quite nicely while also adding a little depth to her sexuality. It's also helped out by Mercedez talking naturally through it rather than sounding like she's reading the entire thing off a piece of paper sitting in front of her. This is a nicely done story segment.
Mercedez lets you have plenty of choices of what to do with her, as well as giving you the choice between two angles to view the action through. She'll let you start her out playing with her pussy using a toy or your fingers, and also lets you worship her tits or ass. Mercedez will return the favor by working on you with her tits, feet, or with a blowjob. She doesn't hold back on fucking either, and lets you choose between taking her pussy in missionary, doggie, or either cowgirl or taking her ass missionary style. For each segment there's innocent and nasty moods for Mercedez as well as a pop shot that's sadly shared between the moods for each choice.
Mercedez does a fantastic job throughout the virtual portion. She plays to the camera very well without making it seem like she's playing to the camera, and is nicely vocal the entire time. She does a very good job varying the vocals between the innocent and nasty modes, and varies her energy level a little to go with it as well. Mercedez does a great job throughout the sex, and easily made me want to see more of her.
For the technical end of things, I have some mixed feelings. The segments normally loop to the start of each segment, which sometimes gave a slightly jerky feeling to the scene energy. This was also a problem for the pop shots, as once you selected the pop shot for the position you were in it never moved past it until you told it to. This might not be bad with pop shot segments that were a minute or so longer, but the vast majority of them here were only about thirty seconds long.
As for the pop shots, they also give me some very mixed feelings. Out of the eight pop shots, the only one which appeared to be real was for the blowjob. There were also two cream pies, one pop on Mercedez' feet, one on her tits, and the others spread around her body. Although the blowjob pop appeared to be real, Mercedez kept a firm grip on the cock so that it would dribble out over her hand rather than hitting her in her pretty face. After seeing that much fake cum I had a lot of hope for a messy facial or a pop in the mouth to get swallowed down, and really felt denied when it just flowed over her hand and down the cock with only a couple soft licks. The cumshots were also held back by being shared between the two moods. I could understand sharing them if all of the pop shots were real, but when you're faking them it stands out quite a bit. The wet cumshots are done pretty well, but they're still fairly fake and held back the cumshot aspect of the movie.
Virtual Sex with Mercedez made it seem wrong to every take my hand off my cock. Yes, it had a few minor flaws, but they're fairly minor and far from unique in a virtual sex release. Mercedez has a great body and a beautiful face, and there was more than one time that I couldn't help but have the thought of her as a Latino Julia Ann. She puts out great vocals and energy, and that sparkle in her eye drew me in right away. I love that there's anal, titty fucking, and foot fucking included in this one rather than just limiting the sex to a blowjob and fucking in the standard four positions, and although the wet faked pop shots leave a bit to be desired, I like how they were mixed up a bit too. It's nice to see Digital Playground expand things a little with Virtual Sex with Mercedez, and I hope to see them push things even further with future installments of this series. If you're a fan of virtual sex simulators, Virtual Sex with Mercedez is definitely worth checking out!
The Extra StuffNone.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

Raincoat Factor: Extreme
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Digital Playground’s virtual sex DVDs can be found online for between about $20 and $32 with stores everywhere in between. If you're a fan of virtual sex, this one should be worth the money. The virtual aspect is very nice with Mercedez playing into it extremely well. The technical aspects are nicely done once you get past the opening segment, but sadly there's no real effort put into the extras. This is a great virtual sex DVD that's only held back by its lack of extras.
Note to Digital Playground: A few extras would really be nice here. Some outtakes, a behind the scenes featurette, or even something like a quick bonus blowjob with Mercedez would have really helped out the overall DVD. As long as you're faking the pop shots, it would also be nice to see a unique pop shot for both the innocent and nasty moods rather than sharing the pop between them.
