Extra's: For most people, the solo scenes that lasted a few minutes each will be the best extra. While they were far too short for me, at least it gave the viewer something extra to play with, given the weakness of many scenes here. The other decent extra was the five minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed Mr. Xin (pronounced "SIN", I believe) taking stills of the gals. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, and a cum shot compilation for fans.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color that most porn is shot in. The fleshtones were accurate and the other colors well balanced due to decent lighting and only some minor grain appeared in the movie. My biggest complaint about the picture would be the amount of time spent on close-ups since that made it difficult to see the scene all that well and some of the angles were not optimal for making the gals look their best. The audio was presented in 2.0 stereo PCM (pulse code modulated) rather than the better Dolby Digital. While most of the moaning could be heard just fine, the audio had a lack of dynamic range and no separation to speak of. This is an area routinely left out of the equation when making porn and that's a shame since it deprives fans of the fuller experience offered with good sound.
Body of Review: A lot of fans like movies centering on very attractive, fresh young performers, regardless of where the women are from. This is one of the reasons why Vivid can sell so many copies of movies; they have a lot of babes working for them. That said, the current drive of the market is to provide increasingly extreme sex acts in addition to the attractive cast and that is why DVSX's latest release is Total Babe 3: Attention Whores. The movie is a series of vignettes that follow a pretty simplistic formula of showcasing a gal in lingerie, having men join her for sex and then the facial. Most of the gals did anal and while seasoned porn fans will find it all a bit generic in nature, it wasn't the worst release I've seen this month. If that sounds good enough for you, read the following breakdown of scenes by cast, noting that the male cast wasn't properly credited (I knew most of them by sight):

Scene One: Cindy, the brunette lead on the front DVD cover (on the right hand side), started off the show by dancing around in the same outfit she's wearing on the cover. Sadly, she took off the fishnet part far too soon and continued to strip. While the strip show was kind of amateurish, Bruno and Thomas didn't seem to mind. I liked her ass almost as much as they did, even if the rest of her was too lean. She gave each of the guys head, alternating between them in the usual mechanical manner European gals are known for and jerked them off as well. The guys screwed her pussy a bit but centered their efforts on her ass most of the scene. Soon enough, she was taking a DP with virtually no heat to speak of but not everyone cares whether the performer is having fun as much as I do (your mileage may vary). To end the scene, she returned to jerking and sucking them off and their loads were unimpressive.
Scene Two: Alexa, is the gal on the lower left side of the front DVD cover and fairly attractive in the stripper sort of way you expect of the gals. Like Cindy,. She's also rather lean in the anorexic way that turns me off but Joe and Mike didn't seem to care as they took off her clothes on a bed. The action was as formulaic as the last scene but her nipple erections and slightly flushed face made me think she was into the action at least part of the time. Her oral skills were lacking and she really didn't seem able to thrust back onto their cocks as they screwed her pussy and ass but if you like the youthful look and don't care about chemistry, she'll work for you too. It ended without any DP action and when she took a moderate gob of goo to her face and chest.
Scene Three: Brandi, the lean gal on the left hand side of the front DVD cover with an all natural body and nice legs, stripped off her clothes while on a couch while waiting for Steve. Her ass was too flat for my tastes but some of you will like the fact that she also had that look of a stripper in a smaller club, giving you the illusion that she'd have sex with you if the price were right. Steve is kind of new these days (I've seen him in a few movies this week) but he wasn't picky and did her after she blew him. Her oral skills were the best of the bunch by this point but that really doesn't say much. She did some PTM after missionary sex and actually turned on the energy when in cowgirl. I guess she hates missionary or really likes cowgirl since it was a night and day difference. Her ass zit was kind of big and flesh a bit loose but at least she started earning her pay for the day. Once the anal began though, she reverted to form and laid back like a primma donna; killing all heat after that. The scene ended with some deep throating ATM and a gob of goo to her face with some post-orgasm sucking.
Scene Four: Jassie, another lean gal and one deemed unfit for the front DVD cover (which is weird because she is by far the most attractive gal in the movie), had a scene on a couch with Kurt. He went down on her and she reciprocated in the 69 position. She knew how to work a cock and I was glad that someone finally breathed some life into the movie. When they started fucking, she was aggressively meeting his thrusts and this made a world of difference in terms of heat but also chemistry. Kurt remained in control but she seemed to like his rougher edge (hair pulling, arm holding and spanking for the most part) and I could almost smell her juices flowing as they finished up. He finished by jerking off to her face and it was well done overall.
Scene Five: Misty and Mili, a couple of generic European gals (one had black hair and the other a poorly dyed red), were also deemed unfit for the front DVD cover. They made out on a leather couch, feeling one another up and sucking each other's breasts until Joe joined them. Mili was the more sexually talented of the two, using her body in order to get him off quicker (no doubt a trick learned in a Budapest brothel), but each was fairly interchangeable. The gals spent more focus on each other's crotch, licking as they were being screwed, than anything else and that was kind of lame in the "wake me when you're done" manner. It was over when he jerked off to their faces on the couch, with them licking him clean.
Scene Six: Victoria, the attractive blonde on the back middle of the front DVD cover, followed the formula and caressed herself in her lingerie until Rambo and Ricardo approached her couch. She took turns blowing them and seemed to know what she was doing. They stripped her and soon took turns boning her in various positions as she blew the other guy. The anal sex wasn't as well done as the vaginal but I suppose it's tougher to keep a straight face when your colon is being hammered by a large penis. While I liked the curve of her ass, her talents were strictly with the oral and all the other stuff was weak. Even the ending facial was kind of tame since Rambo had to hold her head for the first load but she made up for it a little bit by sucking them off afterwards.
Summary: The movie wasn't terrible but I'm being generous by rating it as a Rent It. If you like to paint by the numbers or watch movies designed for those less intelligent than yourself in order to feel superior, you may get a kick out of this one too but the gonzo format is handled with far greater heat by either Red Light District or Evil Angel. I will commend DVSX for providing a mostly crisp picture though; that seems to be in rare supply these days once a reviewer strays far from established companies. Whatever else can be said, keep in mind that Mr. Xin's series, Truly Nice Ass, is much better than this so perhaps he needs to polish this one up a bit.
