The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Digital Playground's Virtual Sex With... series seems like it's been putting in a little extra effort lately to try reclaiming their position as the top virtual sex simulator out there. With how hot Shay Jordan's been I can't help but really look forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: There's a few things that could use some definite improvement, but it's still a very nicely done virtual sex release.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting virtual Shay
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting all real cumshots
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I didn't notice a single background noise. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks fantastic. It's well lit and very clear, looking about as good as I think I've ever seen a Digital Playground release look (and that's saying something) .
Music: The standard music is included for the striptease segment, and is nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
False Advertising: The box cover states ”...You can even make her cum at the push of a button. She'll take it anywhere you want it...”. I'll admit to a little confusion here whether Shay's taking “it” anywhere you want it refers to the pop shot or the possibility of anal sex. Both sound like great ideas, but neither is true so I'm deducting a half point from the total score because of it.
Menus: The menus have kept with the usual format for this series. The main menu features Shay 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 even Rosie O'Donnell can call them large without seeming like a hypocrite.
The FeatureSince signing her contract with Digital Playground, Asian hottie Shay Jordan's been turning plenty of heads. With a great body, a few tasteful tattoos, a very nice natural rack, and a killer ass, there's plenty to like about Shay. She's even shown enough talent that she's appeared behind the camera in some of Digital Playground's big movies. Here you get to control the action as you take on Shay “yourself”.
Digital Playground keeps the exact same format as all their other Virtual Sex With... releases, starting with Shay standing in front of a black background looking quite hot in a little sexy white bra and skirt with black stockings giving you the choice between having her strip, tell stories, or go right to the foreplay or sex. For the strip teases, the camera zooms in and out as it pans around and lets Shay show off her magnificent body for about four and a half minutes. Shay talks a little, but keeps it fairly light before reverting to a screen similar to the opening screen but this time having Shay completely naked.
Shay also lets you listen to her tell stories for about two and a half minutes. As usual she dances around in a few outfits in front of a wall of fire while the stories are piped in for audio. Shay talks about being a Scorpio, loving sex (especially when a guy cums prematurely), and shares her wildest sex experience. This is a fun little segment.
When it comes to foreplay and sex, Shay lets you have plenty of options. As usual, you also have the choice between two different camera angles, one of which is always a POV angle and one which gives a close-up angle either straight on or from the side. For foreplay, Shay lets you worship her tits or ass and lets you finger her pussy or fuck it with a purple dildo. She'll even let you “eat her pussy” or suck “your” cock, and if her mouth isn't enough she'll fuck “you” with her feet or tits. When it comes to fucking, Shay's more than willing to go at it in missionary, doggie, or either cowgirl and as usual with Digital Playground, you have the option between having her be “innocent” or “nasty”. You also get to choose when either you or her cum with orgasm sequences that are shared between the two moods.
For her part, Shay does a very nice job. As always she looks fantastic and turns out a great performance. She plays to the camera without going overboard and varies her mood nicely between the innocent and nasty modes. In each case you get a little “Daddy” talk, but she adds plenty of swearing and gets a bit demanding in the nasty mode while the energy is also kicked up a notch. The only part of the virtual experience Shay doesn't handle too well is the blowjob. It looks like Scott is laying back rather than standing up, and as beautiful as her hair is, it often gets in the way. Scott also looks a little big for her to handle orally, and she barely ever throats him. Thankfully that's the only part she doesn't put her all into, as Shay does a very nice job with her portion of Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan.
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 but not too often. This became a much bigger 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 and some weren't even ten seconds. It would be much better if the cumshot segments would loop back to the previous segment, which would give a much better virtual feel in my opinion. Maybe having just one pop shot segment confuses this for authoring, but when there's faked cumshots all the time like it is here, it shouldn't be that much of a problem to have a cumshot segment for each mood rather than sharing them between the moods for each sex act. The other problem with the segments is that whenever you choose a sex act, it always defaults to the “innocent” mood. I have nothing against “Innocent Shay”, but if I'm working my way through this one seeing just how nasty Shay can be, I don't want to be constantly changing the moods to keep it in the mood I want. Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan is pretty good technically, but shows many of the same limitations of past installments of this series.
Cumshots have always been something that have gotten a lot of attention in virtual sex releases, with some going all real, some going all fake, and many others mixing it up. Here they're almost always fake, which makes them more than disappointing. Through the sex every scene is a faked pussy creampie with Shay often leaking out something that looks like the bastard child of Elmer's glue and Ivory dish soap. The same fluid looks to be squirted out for the pop shot during the titty and feet fucking. This leaves the blowjob as the only real popshot in the movie, which Shay does take nicely in her mouth. Sadly, there's so much fakery holding the other popshots back that I really couldn't get excited about her facial here. The orgasm sequences also fall a bit short by being shared between the two moods. They fit the nasty mood very well, but if you're watching it wanting to see Shay be nice and innocent the mood change is more than a little shocking at times. The orgasm sequences are easily the biggest thing holding back Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan.
Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan is a very good virtual sex release that borders on being a great virtual sex release. For her part, Shay does virtually everything (pun intended) she can. She looks great, plays to the camera without going overboard, and turns out two nicely different moods. The things that hold the release back are completely on Digital Playground's end of things, such as all but one of the pop shots being obviously faked, sharing the orgasm sequences between the two moods, having the segments only loop within their segments rather than going from the orgasm sequence back to whichever sequence you had leading into it. These are fairly common virtual sex simulator releases, but with how much work Digital Playground has put into earning their place as one of the top adult companies out there I can't help but be a little disappointed that these things haven't been fixed after they held back their other virtual sex releases. Yes, they're common enough problems that virtual sex fans are used to seeing them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be disappearing little by little when Digital Playground's competition worked many of these things out long ago. If you're a fan of Shay Jordan, Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan should be well worth the money.
The Extra StuffNone.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, virtual sex, tease, masturbation, toys, oral, feet, and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: Very high
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 Digital Playground's virtual sex series, this is going to be another very enjoyable release for you. Shay looks great and plays into it all very well. The technical aspects are fantastic, but sadly there's no effort put into the extras. Virtual Sex with Shay Jordan is another very nicely done virtual sex simulator.
Note to Digital Playground: The virtual footjob was a great addition, and it was nice to see the virtual titty fucking again. If you're going to fake all the pops, it would be nice to see cumshots that weren't shared between the moods.
