The Short Story
Initial Expectations: As a straight guy I’m a little nervous here, but I’ve heard very good things about what Dr. Dick is trying to do with his movies. Because of that, I’m more than willing to give his movies a chance.
Initial Reaction: It’s not quite my thing, but it’s very nicely done and I can see it having a decent market.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting the softer side of gay sex or who’s curious about gay porn (especially women)
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting gay action on the nastier side or one-on-one gay action
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: Before the opening credits are even over, it’s clear that the technical aspects are going to be a little on the artistic side. The audio is very clear and nicely balanced. The video varies a bit, and not always in a bad way. Some of the video is shot in the standard style, while other parts are shot with the handheld video camera the movie is somewhat wrapped around. The parts with the handheld camera are a little grainy and shaky, but that isn’t always bad because it does set them apart and give that footage a bit of a life of its own. Both video styles are normally nicely lit, but there is a little difference between them.
Music: Rick Randy provides the music, and in a very nice touch that I wish a few other studios would follow, the music is available on CD at Daddy Oohhh!’s website. The music is normally nicely balanced with the rest of the audio, but some of it had a feeling that struck me as quite odd and didn’t do anything for me. Other parts seemed very nice and did work for me.
Disc Complaints: As seems to happen with many DVDs from new companies, the feature is split over two titles. Once you start the second title you can’t go back in the movie unless you go through the main menu or chapter menu. There’s also no time stamp, which always ticks me off. It’s my understanding that a time stamp takes almost no effort or cost to include, and allows the viewer to nicely jump to any place in the feature rather than being limited to the chapter breaks. I hope these things will change in future Daddy Oohhh! DVDs.
Menus: The menus are pretty basic. The main menu is unanimated and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a chapter number.
The FeatureEverybody looks forward to their birthday. Okay, up until their twenty first birthday, everybody looks forward to their birthday. Willie’s lover Matt (Mateo Urrutia) decides to give Willie (Jeff Baron) something special for his birthday and gets him a video camera. Willie’s thrilled and takes it with him wherever he goes, capturing a bit of his day, and a lot of sex.
|Scene 1 - Jeff Baron and Mateo Urrutia|
Things start out with Jeff Baron being woke up with a kiss by his love Mateo Urrutia. Before they go any further, Mateo gives Jeff his birthday present, which Jeff unwraps to discover is a camcorder. They try it out right away, with Mateo modeling for the camera, but it gets set aside for Jeff to start sucking Mateo’s cock. Mateo moves on to lube up Jeff’s ass, finger him to warm up him, and then plunge his cock inside. He starts out from behind and then lets Jeff roll over to fuck him missionary style. Finally, Mateo jerks himself to an impressive pop on Jeff’s stomach before they kiss passionately, with Jeff unable to stroke himself off.
Despite Jeff not being able to get himself off, this is a very nice scene. There’s great chemistry between the guys, and I think it’s next to impossible to not feel anything between them. It’s soft and romantic, and makes me think that for a company that was aiming to make gay movies aimed at women they’re hitting the mark very well!
|Scene 2 - Nick Stone, Justin Strife, and Jeff Baron|
At the gym, Jeff’s trainer Nick Stone, gives Justin Strife a little extra motivation during his workout. They kiss and explore each other, complete with stroking each other and sucking. Jeff puts down the camera to join in, and the three of them work the oral action all around complete with some fun play as Nick does pull ups while Jeff sucks him. After a little warmup for Jeff’s ass, Nick sheaths his sword and plunges it into Jeff’s ass while Jeff sucks Justin’s cock. Justin gets a turn in Jeff as well, and he and Nick finish things up stroking themself onto Jeff’s chest and side before giving him a birthday kiss.
This is another nicely done scene. I like the play between the guys as they warm each other up, and the warm feeling from the first scene continues through this scene very well. There’s plenty of fun passion here, and although there isn’t a lot of fucking in the scene, it still has a nice feeling that’s quite satisfying.
|Scene 3 - Gabriel Comet, Luc Hugo, and Simon August|
After their run, Gabriel Comet, Luc Hugo, and Simon August celebrate a little, and are caught by Jeff and his camera. The Gabriel and Luc team up on Simon, sucking, stroking, and rimming him before working the oral love around a bit more. Finally, they slide a bright yellow condom on Gabriel’s black cock so Simon can ride him. I guess if you’re going to show them, you might as well go all the way and make it fun! Gabriel switches to a white condom for Luc to ride him before Luc moves to his back for a little missionary action from Gabriel. The scene finally ends with Luc stroking himself to a pop on his stomach while the others stand around and jerk off without any results.
This scene didn’t work quite as well as the others for me. I like how the footage mixes in stuff from Jeff’s handheld camera, but this scene focuses much more on close-ups and rarely offered a good view of the penetration. The chemistry also seemed a little weaker than in the other scenes. Finally, only having one pop shot out of three guys made the scene seem very weak, and left me a bit disappointed.
|Scene 4 - Justin Strife, Nick Stone, Luc Hugo, and Jeff Baron|
Finally, Mateo throws Jeff a surprise party, and Gabriel Comet, Luc Hugo, Simon August, Justin Strife, and Nick Stone show up to give him his present (some of them for the second time that day). Surprisingly, there’s plenty of hugs and a few kisses, but no birthday spanking before things move to Justin and Nick getting it on in a bed and Luc finding them together. The three of them start working each other over orally, and are discovered by Jeff and his camera. Of course Jeff joins in, and lets things flow all around, including getting completely worked on himself. Roughly twenty minutes after Justin and Nick start things out, Justin fucks Jeff’s ass. They return to oral play a bit before Jeff gets his ass fucked by Nick, and he jerks himself onto his stomach. Nick follows him with an impressive pop before Justin pops on Jeff’s chest and Luc on Nick’s chest to finish things up.
This is another very nice feeling scene, but it seemed to drag for me. Yes, there’s great chemistry and everybody looks like they’re into it, but after fifteen minutes of oral play I was ready for something else, let alone after twenty minutes! Heck, there’s only about eight minutes left of the scene when the fucking starts, and part of that is even oral. I like oral as much as the next guy, but it’s just too much here even with the great chemistry.
Willie Gets a Brand New Thing is a very nice gay film. There’s nothing nasty or raunchy about it, and I think this makes it a great film to introduce people curious about gay porn to it. I can see it being especially good for women, as every scene has plenty of chemistry and actually feels like something other than a couple fucking to get a paycheck, as so often sadly happens in straight porn. I can even see open minded guys getting into this one, and would suggest it if they have a woman who thinks they should watch some gay porn as payback for how many lesbian scenes they’ve been subjected to in regular porn movies. The biggest problem I have with Willie Gets a Brand New Thing is that it has a bit much oral sex in it. I know I’m comparing it to straight porn experiences here, but it seems like three quarters of the movie is oral sex, and by the end of the movie it had gotten old to me. It not have seemed so bad if there was a bit more ass eating or something else to mix it up, but with the very strong majority of the oral sex being blowjobs, the last couple scenes got a little long for me. There’s also a shortage of pop shots in some of the scenes, and although this might be standard for gay porn, it left me with a feeling that some of the guys weren’t quite up to the job here. Despite my problems, I’m extremely impressed with Willie Gets a Brand New Thing, and I hope that a few straight studios pay attention to it because I think they could learn a thing or two from it.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts almost two minutes with about four seconds per full screen photo. The photos are okay, and look like they’re direct screen captures rather than actual still photos. There’s also an eight minute behind the scenes featurette. The featurette has quite a bit of pussy footage (namely the two cats who appear in the movie in a couple places), a little bit of preparation for the scenes, and a little screwing around behind the scenes. For its length it’s a very nice featurette, and well worth checking out by anybody who enjoyed the movie.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Gay, tease, masturbation, group, interracial, rimming (male > male), and spanking
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: 100%
The Bottom Line:Currently, most Daddy Oohhh! DVDs can be found online for between $24 and $35, with only a couple stores offering them. If you want cuddly gay sex, this one’s going to be well worth your money. There’s tons of chemistry in the scenes, and they never get too hard. The technical aspects vary, but there’s a decent behind the scenes featurette to help round out the DVD.
Note to Daddy Oohhh! Productions: You have a great start here and with a little more polish it will be all the more impressive! A time stamp, a little more attention to the technical aspects, and a little more effort to the menus (as they give the viewer their first impression) would help things out a bit.
