Date of Production: 5/27/2004 (DVD), 8/27/1999 (Movie)
Extra's: The only decent extras was the 12 minute long bonus scene with Flower masturbating. She used a large glass dildo to impale her ass with and did some ATM action with it and her hand. If you like beefy butts, she's a gal you'll enjoy watching a whole lot of (and there was a whole lot to enjoy). The other extras were generic for the most part with a photogallery and some trailers to compliment the spam and biographies.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color, the long time industry standard in porn. While the camera movement and angles were still kind of hit or miss, the lighting this time was far better than Seymore's average back then and I, for one, appreciated it. The fleshtones were accurate and the grain minimal even though the release is nearly five years old. The audio was kind of varied with minimal separation and limited dynamic range but the fun factor that Seymore is known for shined through in most of the scenes.

Body of Review: Seymore Butts is something of a legend to fans of anal sex. Before all the recent wave of anal queens and directors fixated on anal action, Seymore was one of the top ten directors of the gonzo genre. While some of his latest DVD releases by Pure Play Media have been weaker than others, a lot of them have been pretty solid too. One of the better such releases is Seymore Butts' Thighs Wide Open, also known as Seymore's 50th release. There was no central theme to this one, regardless of what you'll hear from other sources, and each of the four scenes was a stand-alone in that they had no linear theme to tie them together. The question some fans may have is: "Does this five year old release stand the test of time?" In short, I think it does due to the strength of the cast and the generally decent production values. Here's a look at the scenes by cast:
Scene One: What Are You Doing?: Bridgette, once the reigning anal queen of porn, had a scene in bed with Tyce. This was before she mutilated her chest with those horrible implants she currently sports. Ever the skilled performer, Tyce fingered and licked her to the point where she was willing to do anything he wanted and her oral skills were pretty solid here. Before long, she rode him in her pussy and we all know that her ass was the focus of the action (although he was slightly larger than a chopstick). She tasted herself off of his penis and managed to display the kind of heat that made her so many fans in the late 90's to early 2000's, with her anal skills at the top of their mark back then. It was a better than average scene to start with although fans will be disappointed to learn that she didn't take a facial or swallow his load.
Scene Two: Sit Don't Spit: Alisha, the hot brunette friend of Seymore's, Bonita, a cute blonde, (both of them were dressed in neon pink outfits), practiced teasing Herschel as they rubbed all over him. I liked the tease more than the actual sex since it worked so well. After a while, he was so hard that he could cut diamonds and they eventually gave in and let him go down on them. They reciprocated and the trio had some hot sex. For all the spots on his dick, old man Herschel was up to the challenge of handling this hotties, each of which was super attractive (if not quite as anally talented as Bridgette). There was plenty of oral, lots of vaginal and tons of anal sex with scores of chemistry here. Whew!
Scene Three: Back From The Hustler Store: Alisha, McKayla, Bridgette, all came back from a store signing at Hustler's store to awaken a sleepy-head Seymore on a large bed. They masturbated with various vibrators and I believe this was McKayla's first scene with Seymore (if not everyone else too). The gals pissed (urinated or squirted, depending on what term you prefer) as Seymore fingered them and after they all emptied their bladders, they took care of his needs. Initially orally satisfying him, they worked the guy over like crazy before he got to start boning McKayla. He took some vaginal and anal to go with his oral and the scene was pretty good if not as hot as the others here.
Scene Four: Out Running Errands: McKayla, having been initiated by her new boss in bed with the ladies, decides to further prove her skills and worth to him. Tyce and Herschel, a couple of guys with the combined age of Yoda, offered up their cocks for her to suck at the same time (ewww). They snacked on her crack a bit and soon were filling both of her holes in various positions. Pussy and ass melded into the space-time continuum as they got off however they wanted to and the inevitable DP had her smiling. While not as good a scene as the first two on the DVD, it was still pretty good and she was always good to look at in action.
Summary: I think Thighs Wide Open was worthy of being Recommended due to the attractive performers, the sexual energy and chemistry, as well as the better than average (for Seymore) picture presented here. Back in 1999, this must've been a major hit since much of the director's works have followed certain patterns in terms of quality. In any case, if you like anal sex and want to see gals pissing on one another, this is going to be made just for your tastes.
