Date of Production: 4/12/2004 (compilation itself)
Extra's: trailers, photogalleries
Audio/Video Quality: The picture for both movies was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, as expected since that was the original aspect ratio both were shot in. Sadly, gonzo footage from ten years ago looks even worse than some of the crud put out this year and the list of problems was endless. There was a lot of problems related to the poor lighting, including grain, video noise, moiré, and a bunch of shadows that were probably as good as could be expected back then. I understand the limitations of older material and you should too if you want to see older movies, especially older gonzo movies. The audio was presented in monaural English although a stereo signal appeared which was likely due to the remastering of the DVD format. The audio varied as much as the visuals but it wasn't as crucial to the fun.
Body of Review: Seymore Butts has been around for many years, a testament to the style of porn in relation to what the market likes to watch. While other companies have since caught up to the style this man perfected so long ago, back in his day, he was nearly as cutting edge as John "Buttman" Stagliano was, a major achievement given the market place of the past. His style would be to offer what amounts to a slice of life of a porn producer, a reality series of yesteryear, that is still fun to watch. If you like Seymore's more recent works, you'll likely love his older style, since it was way ahead of its time. In his most recent release, Seymore Butts' The Wacky Adventures of Seymore & Shane, Pure Play Media have put together two older movies, Seymore And Shane On The Loose! and Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire, onto a double disc compilation set. While I would've appreciated the two movies being clearly marked on the DVD case, I think most porn reviewers will remember the days of old when Seymore and Shane ruled as the royalty of gonzo, and these two shows influenced many a director afterwards. If you can handle the technical flaws of the material, you should read the scene breakdowns to see if you'd enjoy the show:
Disc One: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994:
-- sponsored by --
Scene One: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Yvonne and Krista took advantage of Shane's hospitality on the morning of her departure for Canada with Seymore. Everyone gets in the spirit of the fun, between using a sex swing and the orally talented gals enjoying both giving and receiving, the scene was lots of fun. Shane and Seymore joined in a bit too as the couples switched around and screwed in many positions. The highlight for me was the over the top acting when the Sybian came into play (how fake can a gal's yelling et?) but the oral, straight and anal formula was still good here. It ended with some swallowing action, a thing many of you enjoy watching.
Scene Two: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Tiffany and Shane took on TT in the hotel room after playing a round of "crack the nose" where the gals proved they were more advanced than simply cracking knuckles. The gals had some fun on the bed by blowing TT and then he took them both in their pussies, with Tiffany getting a bit playful with his ass. He popped on Shane but both gals shared the rewards of a hard scene of boning, it being the young stud's birthday.
Scene Three: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: In the third scene from the old Seymore release, Shane and Tiffany had a lesbian scene together, with Shane starting off by going down on her blonde friend. That she used her fingers and large beads inserted into Tiffany was just a bonus since I think both of them got off doing so. Seymore lend his hand to the couple but it was a limited scene.
Scene Four: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Shane and Tiffany went down on Seymore in the fourth scene for this old release of his. I wish Pure Play would've just labeled the movie as such since it makes more sense to do so than pretend the release is something culled from many movies. The blowjob itself was as solid as I'd expect from these two talented ladies though; each giving some extra attention to their friend's penis as they saw fit, and the scene ended when Shane jerked him off to completion onto their mouths.
Scene Five: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Chrystal and TT were up next. She was a blonde with large breasts, blonde hair, and a tan line you rarely see outside of Southern California, never mind Canada. They invited Seymore into the room to watch the action as the couple went at one another with some solid chemistry. Her pole smoking capabilities were not the best of the movie but they were far better than average and aside from the hideous faces TT made while going down on her, his talent was on display too. They boned like old friends and while they didn't do anal sex, it looked to be a good time. It ended when he splooged all over her face.
Scene Six: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Lana, a stripper, was up next and she was Seymore's present to TT in the hotel room. As much as I wished I had friends like this, I know that then I'd have to hook them up once a year too. Shane blindfolded TT and then the fun began with him on the receiving end of Lana's attentions. Her oral skills were well developed but she took her time with him, savoring the moment and teasing him no end, after which he tasted her for a while. They then screwed like happy little bunnies and it finished up with a pop shot to her ass.
Scene Seven: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: This was an interesting little scene where Shane surprised an asleep Seymore with some good head. It was done with an interesting camera trick called "leaving the camera on its side" that I don't recall ever seeing before. Shane was a world-class cocksucker (and I mean that in the nicest of ways) and this scene was no different. She then rode him in several positions before jerking him off into her mouth. You go girl!
Scene Eight: Seymore And Shane On The Loose!: 1994: Tiffany once again started blowing TT, first in the hotel room as they got ready to leave and then in the back seat of the car as Shane drove them to the airport. It ended like all such scenes end, with a creamy delight in her mouth.
Disc Two: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994:
Scene One: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: Seymore rushes home after he's told about a break in at his home. Shane, on the other hand, stays in New York, picking up a fireman, Marv, and a stray gal, Alley. They had a warm scene in the fire station where he gets a blowjob but there was pixelation (on purpose this time) to hide his identity.
Scene Two: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: Shane and Alley wanted some coffee from a shop that was still closed so she promised the waiter she's blow him if he let the gals in. Needless to say, she came through on her promise and he was delighted as she combined oral and handjob action to get him off.
Scene Three: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: Yvonne, feeling sorry for Seymore's misfortune since she was in charge of his house while he was away, wakes him up with some oral loving of her own. I liked the action but it was among the most limited I've seen in a Seymore release. Still, I'd let her watch my home if the result was a problem would get her to give me a hummer.
Scene Four: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: Shane, seeing how distressed Seymore has been over the whole burglary issue, decided to perk him up with a little show. She and Yvonne bring back Alex, the porn stud they met at the AVN awards show, and make Seymore a happy camper again. They all sucked and fucked (vaginally and anally) until even a depressed Seymore had a smile on his face, and he eventually joined in a bit. The scene ended though when Shane used her rather large vibrator/massager, on herself while Alex hammered away at her.
Scene Five: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: Catalina and Shane, in an effort to get some replacement footage, worked over a young Vince outside by a pool. They did lots of oral and straight and even some anal action before he jerked his large load onto Catalina's face. Shane tried to imitate Seymore's usual style of POV action but the results were less than satisfying since her ability to hold the camera and blow Vince were somewhat limited.
Scene Six: Seymore And Shane Playing With Fire: 1994: After a dismal performance in a karaoke club, Seymore finds just what he needs to get his mind off the stolen footage; Vanessa. She was a brunette with great oral skills and a sweet ass that had a lot of fun with him in bed, each spending plenty of time getting one another off. Her slow, deliberate nibbles were enough to make me wonder what life would've been like if I had come across such a gal and in the end, he let loose a large load to her face and eye.
Summary: I'm not exactly sure how to rate this one since the material looked pretty weak and the sex itself was sometimes good but dated. You do get a lot of fuck for your buck, two movies for the price of one, but newer releases have more extreme sex for those who want it and better production values if you choose the right company's product. I'm going to be a sport and list this one as Recommended but keep in mind that it won't appeal to everyone.
